ATHENA, UMATILLA COUNTY, OREGON, MAY 1, 1931
Says State Has Been Bene
fited by Regime, Strove
to Better Charge.
' Salem. Henry W. Meyers, super-
intendent of the state prison, Monday
afternoon announced his intention to
resign effective June 1. The announce
ment followed published rumors that
he was contemplating such a step.
In announcing hia intention he
; said: ' .. , 1 . . -
I "I reached the decision to step out
after numerous conferences with
friends. I believe this action iu for
the best interests of the institution
and officials who are connected with
it. I'm fully aware that continuance
in office as superintendent in the
face of the fight being made upon
me by Governor Meier could only be
detrimental to the institution."
Meyers sent the following letter to
the board of control: .
"In dealing with a most trying sit
uation, errors are bound to occur. We
are all human and subject to mis
takes, yet one can be honest in his
intentions. My sole purpose during
the past four years as administrator
of the Oregon state penitentiary has
been to remove the stench which has
surrounded this institution covering
a period of these many, many years,
and to elevate the same to a degree
so it could compare favorably with
more modern penal institutions. If
any progress has been made, it speaks
for itself. A study of conditions and
my record should indicate to every
right thinking taxpayer of the state
the extreme interest manifested to
build and improve not only the physi
cal plant but the incarcerated indi
viduals as well, providing better food,
cleanliness and sanitary surroundings.

walls of the prison for the betterment
and needs of rehabilitating the pris
oner have met with defeat.
".The unimportant indiscretions
mentioned that may have been com
mitted are most trivial. If one should
measure and could realize the bene
ficial results obtained by permitting
the prisoners to have other recreation
than as provided by and under the
usual prison environment there would
be no criticism, but a hearty com
mendation pertaining to outside en
joyment, even though private inter
ests benefited nominally.
"To counterbalance the minor use
of state trucks and : prisoners, the
same has been more than equalized
and the state has benefited and was
compensated by the fact of the in-
suiuuon gaming Dy tne use 01 my
privately owned automobile covering
a direct period of my first two years'
incumbency, when transports were in
adequate to meet conditions period
ically for the past 24 months, without
one cent cost to the state, yet pri
vately owned autos used in the state
business are entitled to 6 cents per
mile. . ' ,
"Also, my personal investigation
and inspection of San Quentin, Fol
som, Walla Walla and Westminister
prisons at no cost to the state what
soever, the expense incidental there
to being paid personally and the in
formation obtained and derived from
such inspection has been applied in
the interest and benefit to the state

all students could profit by a college
education but all who could profit by
this specialized training should get
The point was made that this is a
day of competition. The only way
to get away from it is to take special
ized training and carry it beyond the
degree to which the majority of one's
competitors have the willingness or
ability to go.
Dr. Poling said that any student
could work his own way through col
lege if he had the determination.

recognized and the realization is
growing that we "need music be
cause it helps us in its inimitable
way to a successful life."

especially honored in accordance with
approaching Mother's Day, and many
of the numbers on the program will
be appropriate to the occasion.

The annual, nation wide observance

This year the White House Confer

week, make an investment of interest
in child health which will bring rich
returns throughout the year and for
