s .. Stricklin, New Engineer ,
Charles ' E. Stricklin,". assistant
state engineer since 1920, became
state engineer through appointment
by - Governor Norblad with the ap
proval ofthe other two members of
the reclamation commission. Strick

Gilliam county. He is a graduate of
the -old Weston normal school, and
majored in engineering at Oregon

Samuel Rothchild, pioneer. Oregon
merchant and father of Walter Roth
child, . San- Francisco attorney, died
at his home in that city at the age of
87.- Rothchild was born in Germany
and" came to America as a boy. He

Norblad Refuses To Call
Lawmakers In An Extra
- Session At This Time
Salem. Declaring that circum
stances do not warrant the expense
involved in a special legislative ses
sion at this time, Governor Norblad
has announced that he would not con
vene, the Oregon lawmakers this fall,
as has been urged, to consider propos
ed amendments to the state's water
power laws. .
The governor's" decision la based up
on a careful study of the opinion pre
pared by Attorney-General Van Win
kle touching upon questions propound
ed by the governor some time ago and
dealing with various phases ' of the
water power situation.
"Under the circumstances, I do not
feel ' that there is any urgent neces
sity' for immediate action " which
would justify me in calling the legis
lature into special session at this
time," the governor declared. .
"According to the opinion of the
attorney-general, the state already
has laws on its statute books which
make.it t possible for incorporated
cities and towns to condemn and take
over water power projects developed
by private corporations, even after
the sam e have been constructed," the
governor pointed out. v .
"This was one of ; the important
points which I wanted cleared up be
fore making up my mind as to the
"While the law makes no provision
whereby the state can take over these
power projects, this defect can just as
well be remedied at the regular ses
sion of the legislature. V Y
"There is no question in my mind
but that the water laws of the state
need a lot of revision, but these
amendments can be made when the
lawmakers meet' here in regular ses
sion next November, and I see no
pressing necessity such as would jus
tify my calling a special session."
Touching upon the right of the state
to levy a tax against the use of its
water resources, the governor ' points
out that the attorney-general's opin
ion holds that such a right already

Dr. Hodge Issues Valuable
Map of Use To Science
and All Travelers.
University ot Oregon, Eugene, Or.
(Special) For the use of travelers
and scientists alike, a topographical
map of the north central portion of
Oregon, south to Bend, east to Con
don, north to The Dalles and cutting
the Cascade range in the middle on
the west, has Just been completed by
Dr. Edwin T. Hodge, profeseor of eco
nomic geology in the Uuiversity ol
Oregon. Answering a long-felt rant to
geologists to have a topographic base
on which to plot the geology ot this
area, the map Is the most coincide ol
this kind to be made of any section in
J Not only scientist will be interest
ed in the map, Dr. Hodge believes, as
It will be of equal service to travel
ers, as it shows accurately every
stream, mountain and plain. A com
plete index, arranged to aid In quick
location of places, accompanies the
' map. ; Anyone interested may obtain
. it through the geology department foi
a nominal charge.
' Working under Dr. Hodge during
; the summers of each year eince 1926
were a number of geology students,
to whom is given a great deal ot credit
, for the immense amount ot field work
which went into the making ot the
map. They Included Ralph Tuck, Far
rell T. Barnes, John Butler, Don Wil
kinson, Clarence Dunbar, John Allen,
Harold Fisk, Allan Griggs, Dale Les
lie, Charles Marlatte, Robert Heitkem
iper, Thomas Thayer and Ed Thurston.
A geological map, for which this is
the base, wHI be completed by Dr.
Hodge this fall, when he will also
publish the results of his survey on
eastern Oregon, a project which has
taken the better part ot five years.
This study, it is believed, will have an
important bearing on economic prob
lems of Oregon, dealing as it does with

Women Doctors Banned
by Colonial Lawmakers
.Though American women have
gained, in recent years,' considerable
prominence in the medical profession,
their achievement has not been effect
ed without effort, writes Capt. John
Lee Mnddox in the New York Evening
Tost. About the year 1638 Mrs. Jane
Hawkins was threatened with deporta
tion from the Colony of Massachusetts
if she did not get out within three
months, and she was warned not to
meddle, in the meantime, with surgery,
physic, plasters or oils. '
Again, about the year 1700, a Boston
physician wrote concerning a piece of
recent medical legislation : "It was
one of the happiest fruits of improved
medical education that by this bill
females were excluded from the prac
tice of medicine, and this only had
been effected by the united and perse
vering efforts of some of the most dis
tinguished men in the profession. The
act enjoined women not only from the
general practice of medicine, but also
from that of obstetrics."

Sherman County Girl
Acclaimed 4-H Champion
Salem. Acclaimed the grain cham
pion in a field of champions, Miss
Viola Hansen, 18-year-old 4-H club
member of Moro, Sherman county,
was proclaimed the most outstanding
member of that statewide organiza
tion numbering in its membership a
total of 15,000 boys and girls.
Barred from participation in the
honors showered on the four out
standing boys and girls designated
Friday night because she had previ
ously, in 1927, enjoyed this honor,
Miss Hansen's achievements in club
work are said to outrank even those
of this outstanding quartet.
In recognition of this high position
in the ranks of 4-H club workers,
Miss Hansen was presented with the
I. L. Patterson cup, a trophy made
available this year for the first time
and given only for outstanding ability
and leadership in club work. The
trophy was presented by Mrs. I. L.
Patterson in memory of the late
Governor Patterson, who during his
three years in office took an active
interest in the work of the 4-H or
ganization. Miss Hansen has been in club work
for six years. In 1927 she was chosen
as one of the four outstanding club
workers. Last year she won the pres
sure cooker offered by Governor Pat
terson and a trip to Chicago given by
Montgomery Ward and company.
