Tho executive reminded tho legis
lators' of their responsibility in lay
ing tho "foundation for a partner
ship betcen the stato and nation In
tbe matter of rearranging public
affairs and Institutions to meet a
situation that has borne no parallel
slnco tho birth of this common
wealth." That Oregon "render the maxi
mum degreo of scrvlco" to tho re
turning soldlora was tho first recom
mendation of tho governor. Refer
ring to Oregon's unparalleled patri
otic record throughout tbe war
being "tlmo after time first of all
states In the support of the country's
cause" he urged tbe law-makors
to every possible effort to provldo
proper cam for tho men who return
from service In the army and navy.
He said:

plan in tho drainage ot swamp land.
