Report on Willamette
River Survey Issued
That sulphite liquor waste dis
charged from the four paper mills
now in operation along the Willam
ette river places an oxygen demand
on the river equal to that from a
population of some 489,000 persons
is pointed out in a report of the
technical sub-committee working
under the board appointed by Gov
ernor Meier three years ago to
make a specific study and report
on factors contributing to river pol
lution. The findings of the committee are
contained in an engineering experi
ment station bulletin just published
at Oregon State college, entitled,
"Industrial and Domestic Wastes
of the Willamette Valley," by G. W.
Gleeson, acting head of the chemi
cal engineering department, and F.
Merryfield, assistant professor of
The fact that the available oxy
gen in the Willamette river de
creases rapidly from Salem to Port
land at low water seasons, and that
in general the conditions of the
river during these periods are crit
ical from the standpoint of fish life
and undesirable from the pollutional
standpoint was established by a
sanitary survey conducted by the
engineering experiment station at
O. S. C. during the summers of 1929
and 1930. The chief purpose of the
survey just completed was to study
the wastes discharged into the river
from the pulp and paper mills and
other industrial plants, to deter
mine their biachemical oxygen de
mand, investigate possible method
of treatment, and to make recommendations.
The committee points out that in
making the survey it had the hearty
cooperation of the paper industry,
which recognizes the problem and
would welcome a successful and
economically practicable solution.
No present method of treating
waste sulphite liquor ha3 been
shown to be generally feasible from
an economic standpoint, the report
shows, although a number of pro
cesses are in successful operation
under certain conditions. One of
these, that of ponding and aerating
sulphite wastes before discharging
into the river, was recommended
by the committee as worthy of trial
under commercial conditions in
Oregon. Experimental operation
was suggested at the Lebanon plant
of the Crown Willamette Paper
company, where a suitable small
pond is already in use and where
the experiment could be conducted
at nominal expense.

Lakeview. Twenty acres of range
land on the Walt Leehmann ranch

the bronco grass, sage brush and
lupines, says County Agent Vic
Johnson. The area was inspected

STATE CAFITAL NEWS.
SALEM. The Oregon returns in
the recent battle of the ballots were
not without their usual quota of
surprises, not the least of which
was the astounding plurality amass
ed by President Roosevelt While
this state had been pretty gener
ally conceded to the Democratic
candidate not even his most rabid
partisans had anticipated the land
slide which swept every county in
the state including rock-ribbed
Republican Benton into the Roose
velt column. Republicans who had
conceded a Roosevelt victory in the
state had grudgingly estimated his
margin of victory at 15,000 to 0,-
000. Democrats, on the other hand,
had claimed the state for their can
didate by anywhere from 40,000 to
75.000, a few of the more wild-eyed
partisans boosting the margin to
as high "as 100,000. The voters gave
him a plurality of more than 143,-
Only a little less surprising than
the huge total rolled up by Roose
velt was the strength displayed by
Willis Mahoney, democratic candi
date for United States senator, who,
carried along on the crest of the
democratic landslide and with sub
stantial aid from his Townsendite
admirers came within 6000 votes of
unseating the veteran Chas. L. Mc
Nary, republican floor leader in the
senate, and generally accounted for
easy victor in the race for re-election.
Alfred Dobson, democrat, who was
expected to give the veteran I. H.
Van Winkle a hard race for the at
torney generalship did so, coming
within 11,000 of winning.
One of the most unexplainable
results of the election was the big
vote polled by the old age pension
amendment which came within
5500 votes of carrying and which,
had it been approved, would have
completely disrupted the state's old
age pension set-up, drying up the
state and county old age pension
funds and leaving nothing with
which to match federal aid to the
SALEM. Oregon school districts
clipped an aggregate of $2,229,521
off their debt load in the past two
years, a survey by State Treasurer
Rufus Holman reveals. The school
debt load bond and warrants
which totalled $19,945,781 on July 1
1934, had been reduced to $17,646,349
on July 1 of this year.
Twenty-five of the state's 36
counties reported progress in the
reduction of their school debts dur
ing the biennium ranging from a
low of $449 in the case of Union
County to $1,655.236 for Multno-
mah county. Eleven counties, on
the other hand, show Increased debt
loads at the end of the two year
period. Of this latter class Marlon
leads with an increase of $556,536 in
its school indebtedness, largely ac
counted for by new bond issues to
finance new school buildings In the
Lincoln county with only $8800
of bond and warrant debt is shown
to have the lightest school debt load
with Jefferson's $22,692 ranking
second and Gilliam's $47,449.05,
