Lane County May Join with
Marion and Linn, Form
. .Plans tor ..the-creation of a super-flood
control district on the
lower Santiam river, are taking
concrete form, with Marlon, linn
and tine counties uniting in the
project to-secure redaral funds for
financing the program. The first
meeting of the trl county group is
expected to be conducted in Al
bany within the next few days.
The Initial plans for-the flood
control district grew out of a
Joint meeting here yesterday be
tween the Marlon and Una coun
ty courts. The meeting, was called
to formulate a program to serve
as a defense against the lower
Santtam, which threatens, under
flood conditions,! to Inundate
thousands of acres of some of the
most fertile land In the Wfflam
ette valley. '
Officials of the two county
courts decided to contact Federal
Engineer Russell at Eugene to as
certain what steps have been tak
en there for a similar organiza
tion.. Russell informed the local
court that he and County Judge
Fish would meet with Marlon and
Linn county representatives at
any time. 1
The menace of the lower San
tiam faces both Marlon and Linn
counties, where the river threat
ens to break over and do Immeas
urable damage. Representative
farmers from both Marion and
Linn counties attended the county
court meeting. It is understood
the basis of the plan calls for a
tri-county organization, repre
senting sufficient population to
interest either the CWA or the
PWA'ln a flood control project
of considerable magnitude.
WOMEN'S PART 10
POLITICS IS TOPIC
Women have a decided part to
play in politics, a role that Is
increasing in size as affairs of
government more and more con
cern every citizen. They must
take their place in public af
fairs, not through a request to
the public for support of the
"eaker" sex, but because the
viewpoint and position of women
must be recognized in the for
mation of the nation's complex
affairs. This view was brought
to the Salem Kiwanis club Tues
day noon by Mrs. Dorothy McCul
lough Lee, senator from Mult
Mrs. Lee, in an interesting
message, traced the larger role
women are constantly playing in
political life. She said that 25
per cent of legislation she had
seen introduced " pertained to
school and vitally concerned
"The female sex must expect no
favors in politics.. Usually women
find it more difficul tto be elected
than men. But once in office, the
public will support them if their
work is good." she averred.
The western states, while lead
ers in the movement for women's
suffrage, have been less active in
placing women in public responsi
bility, tho speaker declared. Con
necticut, with 120 legislators, has
40 of them women.

Suit to permit the modernis
ing of the Brewer building, at
Court and' Liberty streets, now
maintained in its present condi
tion under terms of the will of
Mary Ellen Brewer, was institut
ed in circuit court yesterday by
Dr. Charles B. Brewer, sole sur
viving trustee of the estate. The
suit Is- directed against Rufus
Holman, state treasurer.
Although the suit seeks per
mission to improve the building,
located in the heart of downtown
retail section, it also will pre
serve the body of the trust by
either remodeling tho structure
or selling the property to estab
lish a sizeable fund.
The trust provision of the will
required the building to be kept
intact as at tho time of tho
death of Mrs. Brewer. The com
