An editorial in the . Medford
Mail -Tribune, initialed . A.
(Eric Allen, Jr., managing ed
itor), discusses the functioning
of county government in Oregon
under the 'heading, "County
Anachronism. Noting the sue
resa of professional managers in
cities, Allen asks if they would
not be good for counties. He cites
tho fact that while a county may
go to a manager plan on vote of
tho people, none, in Oregon has
done so; and only two, Clackamas
and Lane, have put the question
to the people.
1O0 coumy, wrnra si urn, is a
creature of the state, chiefly ad
minstrative in character (aside
from its judicial arm). Author
ity is well diffused, with 10 elect,
ed officials. The county, in con
trast with the cities, has little or
no legislative power. The powers
of the county court are limited
Allen terms it "an unwieldy
body unsuited to administration."
He adds this indictment of the
present system;
''Sine the system wh let up
Dearly a century ago, it does not
reflect the growth of the cilies,
the piling up of "fringe" prob
lems, the present rapid means of
communication and transportation.
It larks flexibility and the power
to deal with urvnt problems in a
forthright manner.
"Rates of pay for both elected
and appointed nfficials have been
below comparable rates jn other
fields, thus lending too often to
attract, not top-flight personnel,
but those who look on their .lobs
as sinecures. Time after time, a
county election race has been, to
the voter, a choice of tha less poor
ef two randidates. rather than an
enthusiastic endorsement of one
good man over another."
Finally, Alien raises questions:
Should the county have a single,
trained executive? Do we really
need 10 elected officials? Should
counties be given "home rule"
like cities? Would it not bring
