One of the first things I propose
to do as governor will be employ ev
ery power of the office to consolidate
the boards, bureaus, commissions t nd
committees that interfere with each
other because there are so many of
them. Their work overlaps and dupli
cates. There are too many ornaments
drawing salaries and fees for doing
little or no. work. Fewer boards, few
er officials and more work by these
boards and officials is the crying need
of the state of Oregon. I pledge my
self to work of correcting this con
spicuous waste of the state's money.
Every man on the state payroll
should actually work, and every man

Now Is the Time for Passage of School Bill
Vote 314 x Yes
Passage of the Compulsory Public School Attendance bill now this year
will Insure that a minimum number of private schools and private school
pupils will be affected. Of the 36 counties of Oregon 16 are at present with
out aoy private schools whatever. The combined aggregate of pupils in all
the private schools in five other counties Is fewer than 200. The total
attendance at the private schools, of the grammar grades, of Oregon Is about
9841. The total attendance at' the public schools, of the grammar grades,
Is about 131,689. Surely if the public schools are good enough for the 131,689,
they are also good enough for the other 9841.
At present, while the private schools are few and small, Is the time to

It is commonly reported and widely
believed that too small a percentage
of the money provided for highways
.goes into actual construction of roads.
There have been instances in which
costly highways have had to be re
built within a year or two. Road build
ing in Oregon has been a vast and
expensive enterprise, in which there
should be no leaks or wastes. I hava
faith in the gentlemen serving as
highway commissioners, but hold that
there should be a very thorough in
vestigation . of the operations of the
working under them, to the end
that-excresenses may be lopped off,
all leaks stopped and a dollar's worth
of . road be built for every dollar of
public money spent.

legislature that every appropriation
bill shall be itemized, and I shall ve

so itemized. In addition to that, I
shall veto every unnecessary useless
or questionable item in every appro

I shall exercise my prerogative to
call to the attention of the legislature
and suggest to it the enactment of
such laws as will reduce the expen

I can and will point the way for
relief. I know the majority of the
next legislature, coming from the tax
burdened people, will feel as I feel
that there must be relief. It is not
a question of party politics, but a vi
tal question of property rights, pros
perity and the welfare and happiness
of the people.
I refuse to budge one inch from
this matter of taxation. It is the do
minant issue. For more than 20 yeais
I have talked and worked for lower
taxes, and this will continue to be the
first theme in my thoughts.
Taxes can and must be equalized
and reduced, and I have here pointed
out some of the ways the thing can
ATHENA BOND ELECTION
To the voters of the City of Athena:
At the special election held on Sept
ember 6th at which was voted bonds
of the City of Athena for refunding
outstanding indebtedness, only nine
teen votes were cast. A question of
this importance ought to receive the
attention of more of the people of
For this reason the purchaser of
the bonds has deemed it necessasy
to have the question resubmitted at
the general election. Some doubt
might arise as to whether all of the
people had notice of the special elec
tion, and at a meeting of the Council
on Monday night, it was determined
to resubmit this question to the vote
of the people of Athena at the gen
eral election November 7th.
The question involved is not one
of making additional expenditures or
entering into any new obligations.
The City is in' debt on account of a
personal injury judgment and several
other matters in the amount of $20,
000.00. Unless the bonds are issued, it will
be necessary for the City to levy
heavier taxes in order to pay off this
indebtedness. The issuing of the bonds
is merely like renewing a note that
is already due. I believe that .this
should be done and the amount paid
off gradually and at a time when con
ditions are more nearly normal.
