Safety at the State Prison
SUPERINTENDENT JAMES LEWIS at the state peniten
tiary should have a "srand opening". We do not mean
that he should let his "guests" out all of a sudden; but that
he should invite in the general public to see just how the
state prison has been reconstructed. . - !
' Oregon people have heard how old this prison is, built
over, half a century ago. And they have heard it described
'as ' fire trap. They have heard recommendations to com
pletely abandon the present plant and go out a few miles
and construct a new institution. The fact is that the institu
tion has been rebuilt into virtually an entirely fire-proof
plant, that is, so far as the -cell-blocks go. '
i Some months ago we visited the prison and saw they
were laying concrete floor in what is called the "chapel".
That is what the room used to be, but now it is the lobby
which is the real hub of the plant. Off of it open the cell
' blocks, the dining room, and the administration offices. This
week we called again and Supt, Lewis showed us how the
, cell blocks and chapel had been reconstructed to make them
safe from fire. All floors and roofs of these old structures
are now of reenforced concrete. Steel sash, hinged to provide
easy ventilation have gone in the old blocks the same as the
new cell block. This work was all done by the inmates with
free labor for supervision.
- Now the only structures not fully fire-safe are the dining
room and the hospital. The dining room is used only by day
and is quickly emptied. When times permit the hospital
should be reconstructed for safety too.
Incidentally those steel cell

Keeping History Straight
F BEATS ALL how many lives a political lie has. And
Herbert Hoover has the distinction of being lied about
more; than any other presidential candidate in many years.
Lies circulate, v- '.T '-
That Hoover Is a British citizen.
That . Hoover voted in Great Britain .
; That' Hoover hired oriental labor on his California ranch.
That Hoover hired coolie labor in South African mines.
, Lies, all of them lies.
. , But here is one which has hung over from four years
ago, to the effect that Hoover, as head of the Food Admini-
' stration during the war, fixed the price of wheat. That one
has had as many lives as are attributed to a cat.
The truth is that the food control -act passed by congress

On the Monday before the Army
game a letter appeared on all but
letin boards of the University; it
was signed "C E. 17" and the writ
er scathingly accused the students
of being cream puffs: of not car
ing whether the team lost to Army.
It aroused only cynical snorts,
particularly from upper classm en.
The next morning another appear
ed, charging a group of fake so
phisticates with . dissipating the
famous New Dominion spirit; in
ferring that they were mostly up-

On Thursday morning C E.17
issued the last of his philippics, pre
dicting that at the pep meeting that
