Fire Hazard Elimination is
Considered Along With
New Jail Building
But Vault Also Needed and
Entire new Plant one
Solution Talked
Shall Marion county spend
tome 115,000 on eliminating fire
hazards at the county court
house? Shall Marlon county spend an
other $10,000 or thereabouts, on
construction of a separate Jail
building and heating plant on the
courthouse grounds.
Shall Marion county' Junk Its
courthouse, admittedly a. fire
trap, even with improvements,
and build a new structure?
These were a few of the ques
tions talked pro and con about
the courthouse yesterday, follow
ing submission to the county
court by the grand Jury of a
report prepared by city , firemen
and the building inspector. The
report suggested elimination of
serious fire hazards at the court
house through re-wiring the
building, Installation of an alarm
system, addition of at least one
fire escape, enclosing certain pp-enlngs-oolnd
shutting off stair-
ys, and adding fire resistant
material over various ceilings
and corridors of wood.
Financial Problem
Is Viewed by Court
The report was present"! to
the county court yesterday morn
ing, and while the court made
no indication of what It would
or might do, each member did
state that of course the court
did not wish to see human life
endangered. However, no budget
allowance for any such project
was made, and the cost problem
will likely loom large, particu
larly In view of present tax con
ditions. ,
In the discussion between the
Jury and court members yester
day, suggestion of another build
ing to house the jail and sheriff's
office, similar to those in Eugene,
Albany and Dallas, was made. The
grand Jury will visit the Dallas
jail in a few days with a view
to making further recommenda
tions to the court.
The possible proposal for an
outside jail would diminish little
the need for correcting tire haz
ards In the courthouse, county
court members Indicated, and
merely make two expenses, in
stead of one, if the grand Jury's
recommendations were ' carried
Keed of Fireproof
Vault la rotated Oat
County Commissioner Melson
yesterday pointed out a salient
matter of which the Jury's report
took no cognizance: The heavy
and irreparable loss which would
result to the county In case of
fire because of lack of fireproof
vaults In the clerk's, tax collec
tor's and recorder's officer., par
ticularly. Loss of delinquent tax
papers right now would ccat the
county over half a million dollars
In inability td collect through loss
of records.
So, with the grand Jury likely,
before It finishes, to suggest mat
ters which will cost around $30,
.900 (should the court see fit to
adopt them) why not build a new
Courthouse while the county Is
pending money, Melson asks. The
$30,000 or so expenditure would
he only a temporary matter at
best, and only alleviate and not
rid the courthouse of fire hazards,
he says.
But where't the money to come
from tor a new courthouse, even
if It could be built cheaper now
than at any time in years, Melson
and the other court members ask
Incidentally, the $15,000 esti
mate on following the recommen
dations as laid down by the report
submitted to the court, was vol
unteered yesterday by two build
ers, who looked the courthouse
over as soon as a Job was scented
The court will ask Inspection by
another set of appraisers as Its
first move.

Grasping opportunity by the forelock, Adolf Hitler, former Austrian
house painter, soldier la the German army and leader of Ger
many's national socialist party, aa chancellor of the German re
public occupies the international spotlight. Twice previously Hitler
had the chancellorship almost within his grasp, but his unalterable
demand for dictatorial powers lost him the job. This time, follow
ing the downfall of the Yon Schleicher cabinet, Hitler abandoned
bis "all or nothing" policy. But the nazi chief Jces a difficult task.
His cabinet, handpickod by President Von Hindenburg, is composed
mostly of conservatives, among whom are former Chancellor
Franz von Papen, as vice-chancellor and dictator of Prussia and
Baron von Xeurath, a hold-over of the Von Schleicher cabinet, who
retains the portfolio aa foreign minister. These were bitter pills
for the nazi chief to swallow, but there was compensation In the
appointment of Dr. William Frick and Hermann Goer lug, both
trusted lieutenants of Hitler, who are minister of the interior and
minister of air and interior for Prussia, respectively.

Threat that a nation-wide farm

Incoming administration was
made last night by Milo Reno of
Des Moines, la., who led the mid
weetern non-marketing campaign
last summer.
While governmental and fi
nancial leaders sought means of
stopping rural mortgage foreclos
ures, Reno said farmers In 38
states might be asked to stop
marketing their produce and buy
ing from merchants.
"It has' been no secret at all,"
declared the president of the Na
tional Farmers Holiday associa
tion, "that If the incoming ad
ministration doesn't correct the
situation quickly there will be
a general strike called" of both
buyers and sellers."
Meanwhile the rural mortgage
remained one of the major prob
lems of the hour.
Concessions Granted
By Loan Companies
government Influence was added
Saturday in considerable measure
to the farmer's fight to save nis
land, livestock, and machinery
from mortgage foreclosure.
From a dozen localities came
reports of concessions granted by
Insurance companies and loan
concerns, together with attempts
by government agencies to lighten
agriculture s debt burden.
The farmers gave no indication,
however, of lessening their deter
mination to save their property
from foreclosure at any cost.

Of Recent Disturbance
Laid to Outsiders
Declaring that Justice should be
done to the bona fide needy res
idents of Salem and Marion coun
ty, workers at the Community
Service-Red . Cross relief office
yesterday asserted that recent dis
turbances were largely the work
of outsiders and the county's own
citizens had conducted themselves
admirably well, considering their
plight. Except for grumbling here
and there over delays In obtaining
food requisitions, Marion county
needy, for the most part, remain
ed orderly, it was pointed out.
Remedy was largely effected to
the past delays yesterday when a
volunteer assistant added to the
relief office force permitted three
of the young women to devote
full time to taking records of
cases and making out the requi
sitions. It is anticipated that still
more workers will be added,
should the press of the relief ac
tivities make it advisable.
By closing time, fi p. m., yes
terday, requisitions had been pro
vided IS persons, most of them
representing families. Few of
them were forced to wait long for
appointments In the office, it was
reported. In addition to caring for
the out-of-city applicants, who
have right-of-way on Saturdays,
the office assisted a number of
Salem residents.
On the surface, the relief situa
tion had quieted down. Persons In
dose contact with the week's dis
turbances reported that the work
was going on smoothly and agita
tion at least temporarily stopped.
Additional service for the coun
ty's needy was started last week;
wun tne opening of supply de
pots at Woodburn, Sllverton and
Stayton, supported by the Red
Cross and county court. Appli
cants for food supplies came to
Salem yesterday from as far away

governor Indicated he would not
change his present statewide re

reappoint them to be the commit

bill. Raymond B. Wilcox will be
the chairman.
Sub-relief committees are short
