Vets of Foreign
Wars To Elect
Agents $7 A Day
By the terms of a contract entered into April 1, the peo
ple of Marion county are pledged to pay for the booze
crusade which has been conducted in Marion county during
the past three weeks by the Anti-Saloon League of Oregon
at the rate of $7 a day for each league officer employed in
the campaign by the league and "all expenses incident thereto
including necessary traveling expenses, room and board,
automobile hire and reimbursement for money expended
in the purchase of liquor for evidence."
Despite the fact that the contract calls for a weekly state
ment from officers of the league to the county court as to .
services performed and expenditures made, no such formal
statement has been filed and no estimate of the size of the
bill of the league is available, except that it is known that
from five to sixteen operatives of the league have been work
ing in the county during the past three weeks.
The contract was signed by In all 19 warrants. Bworn out
