While salary redactions , are
going on la all departments of
state . government, Oregon's 28
circuit Judges pursue their soli
tary way with a great diversity
existing in the way the members
of the bench are handling ' the
delicate matter of lowered com

all the circuit judges at one time
or another, had taken redactions

judges hare slipped back to the

The judges who have taken re
ductions have generally followed
the lead of the majority of the
state supreme court, four mem
bers of which voluntarily reduced
: their pay 15 per cent a month.
Three high court judges cut their
salaries 20 per cent a month.
Some of the circuit judges have
taken 10 per cent cuts; none have
reduced their salaries from 23 to
28 per cent as would be required
It the 5 to 30 per cent legislative
schedule were carried out.
HcMahan Among
Those not Reducing
Judge L. H. McMahan of Mar
lon county continues to draw his
warrant of $500 each month on a
,16000 a year basis. At no time
'has he reduced the warrant he
draws on the state or refunded
any money to the state treasurer
as a number of judges bare done.
For one month he .turned in 125
to the- Marion county treasurer
after .: his failure to reduce "his
salary was shown locally. Since
that time he has refunded noth
ing here or at the statehouse.
Seven other judges besides Mc
Mahan are drawing their full pay.
They are Judges H. D. Norton,
George Tazwell, Earl C. Latour
ette, Fred W. Wilson, W. M. Dun
can, Jacob Kanzler, : Orlando Cor
king. '
While no legislature can legal
ly reduce the salary of a judge
during his term of office, the 1933
cession recommended voluntary
reductions to the jurists. If the
Budges took the salary reductions
applied to state workers the leg
islature could reach, the scale
would have been reduced from 23
to 26 per cent, the latter reduc
