storms known passed through Cecil

about 10 a. m. and never ceased till

Giving scores of disabled veterans
of the Pacific Northwest permanent
compensation, a new move on the
part of the United States Veterans'
Bureau establishing medical rating
boards throughout the district for
the purpose of awarding permanent
partial disability ratings is proving
not only a benefit to the injured ex-
j service man but will also be a money-
saver for the government, according
to L. C. Jesseph, northwest district
manager of the bureau.
More than 100 disabled veterans
have already been given permanent
partial disability ratings, meaning
permanent compensation from the
government and eliminating the need
of periodical physical examinations,
he stated. Approximately 2,000 men
will be called in for examination be
fore the rating boards finish their
work. Boards have been named at
Seattle, Tacoma, Spokane, Portland,
Walla Walla and Boise.
"Disabled ex-service men receiving
notices to report for examination be
fore one of these boards should make
it a point to do so at the time desig
nated," said Mr. Jesseph. "This pro-

Rewara of the Cane
No man who carries a cane can be
elected to public office in Oregon.
We lay this down as an axiom of
Oregon politics. A cane confers im
munity upon its twirler. It elimi
nates him automatically. Ben W. 01
cott found that out. He began to
carry a cane, very privately, while he
was governor. So th,e Curse of Cane
was upon him. The editor of The
Voter always carries a cane, very
publicly. Thus he is removed from
temptation to become a candidate for
anything, knowing he is doomed to
defeat. We note that Robert N.
Stanfield is carrying a cane. Ore
