Polk County CWA and Politics
TVTOT all is peaceful on the
il itics, naughty politics, has obtruded its serpent's-head,
and that's the truth. There are charges, followed by cosm-ter-diarges
or denials, and now a fresh surge of complaint.
It is the democrats who this time are fighting republicans,
instead of, as is more customary in Oregon, fighting each
ether. The county democratic committee condemns the CWA
management for hiring too many republicans, 'while the dem-
1 il XI xl 1 ft. t.rx x
utxais woo tuuugut mey won xnr iasi emuon, are ten out
in the cold :- - ' , .
, CWA is for relief: and the democrats who have waited
way. Perhaps republicans facing a long season on short ra
tions, feel they need relief to begin with. But there is trou-
. hie brewing. The democratic committee is so wild that
it is slinging mixed metaphors at the CWA managers, say
ing: 'Republicans in charge have made a political football
out of the CWA and it is a nightmare right now." That of
course is terrible, especially the sudden metamorphosis from
a football to a nightmare.
, The democrats should have patience however. Perhaps
that is one form of political evangelism, and the republicans
who are given joba wftTbe sudden converts to the party of
Jackson and Jefferson and the new deal. There's Fritz Slade
for example, of Salem, long a registered republican, whose
picture, now that he is RFC agent in Oregon, graces the
front page of the "Oregon Democrat". Republicans, if they
are politically wise, will give the CWA jobs to faithful dem
ocrats rather than run the risk of losing their members to
; the party of the new deal under the powerful attraction of
the loaves and fishes.
J- I Commission Attorneys
A LONG with revelations of bad practices in expenditures
XX j of the state game commission reported in the audit of
the books, comes a criticism of the costly legal fee3 which
the commission has paid, -$11,232.97 to Chester E. McCar
. thy of Portland In one month, the hill to the commission
was $614.15. The attorney defends the charges as less than
the fee schedule of the Oregon bar association. That may be
true; but in our opinion all state legal work should be hand
led through the attorney general's off ice. It is a mistake to
permit every commission to hire its own lawyer. At the same
time the attorney general should be given more money so
he can employ a staff sufficiently large and competent to
Handle the work.
The practice of hiring special counsel seems to be grow
ing; and each head of a division doubtless justifies the prac
tice. The liquor commission has not hired a special attorney
as its counsel,; undoubtedly at
work should be handled by and through the office of the at

,. Expensive Liquor Stores
THE liquor commission, without waiting for court deci
sion, has ordered $30,000 worth of fixtures for state li
quor stores. That averages close to $2000 apiece. That seems
plenty. In view of the experimental nature of the undertak
ing, all that would, appear essential would be wooden shelv
ing, a wrap-up counter, and & desk or two.
If, Ugh salaries, expensive fixtures, etc. are to be the
order, the unemployed will have to wait considerable time
wfore tfiey get any share of the profits from the state stores.
? We supposed they would start like a grocery r rent a
room, throw up some inexpensive shelves, and start doing
business.. If the commission piles up a big investment, it will
prove costly to the state which may change its mind and go
tack to prohibition (or back to the saloon) before the fn
restment account is absorbed In profits.
