O Worst Polluters
o Political Front
o 3 Million Business
Salem. Carl E. Green state san
itary engineer told the Board of
Control that state institutions are
among the worst offenders in the
matter of stream pollution.
Until the state does something
about this problem, Green said, the
sanitary authority can not very well
insist upon municipalities install
ing sewage disposal plants.
Green pointed out that state in
stitutions south and east of Salem
were polluting Pringle creek by
dumping waste into' that stream
while the eastern Oregon state hos
pital at Pendleton is guilty of pol
luting the waters of the Umatilla
Green said that a preliminary in
vestigation has indicated that it
would be cheaper for the state to
pipe the sewage from the institu
tions in the vicinity of the capital
city into Salem than it would be
to install sewage disposal plants at
the institutions. The cost of this
program Green estimated at $50,000.
The Board asked the sanitary
engineer to proceed with detailed
studies of the sewage problem at
the several institutions with a view
to presenting a definite recommen
dation for its solution to the next
Award of a door prize at a cook
ing school or similar event consti
tutes a lottery in violation of the
state law, according to Attorney
General I. H. Van Winkle. Attend
ance at the school, the attorney gen
eral holds, is the price paid for a
chance at the prize. In the same
opinion the state's legal adviser held
that injection of a quiz contest into
a "bank night" does not remove
such a procedure from the realm
of chance and it still remains a
One-third of the $11,G05,802 in
benefits distributed by the Unem
ployment Compensation commission
since January 1, 1938, has been spent
for food, a survey conducted by the
UCC has revealed. Sixteen percent
of the benefit payments went for
rent, another 16 percent was spent
for "home operations" and 10 per
cent went for clothing. The re
mainder of the money paid out to
jobless workers was spent for trans
portation, doctor and dentist bills,
recreation, education, church and
charity and miscellaneous items.
The state highway department
has received word from Washington
to the effect that the bureau of
public roads has approved the ex
penditure of funds on 61 miles of
federal aid roads in this state dur
ing the next fiscal year beginning
July 1.
O. D. Adams, state director for
vocational education, has received
word of his selection as advisor on
the National Broadcasting company's
public service program. The basis
for this recognition is understood to
have been Mr. Adams' leadership in
the field of vocational education.
Adams is a national vice-president
of the American Vocational asso
ciation. The State Board of Control has
been advised that the Works Pro
gress administration has approved
a grant of $49,404 for use at the
Fairview Home. This fund will go
toward the employment of labor in
improving the grounds at the insti
tution and in constructing a new
poultry plant and other buildings.
All has been comparatively quiet
on Oregon's political front since the.
candidates took the state hoiise by
storm on April 1 in their eleventh
hour rush to get into the race. Ex
cept for quiet reconnaisance tours
into the field on the part of individ
ual candidates there has been no
activity to indicate that a major
battle of the ballots is in the offing
some three weeks hence.
However, the political pot can be
expected to at least reach the sim
mering stage within the week with
the Young Democrats meeting at
Corvallis Friday and Saturday of
this week to resolute and possibly
to endorse and the Commonwealth
Federation scheduled to gather in
the new capitol here at Salem on
Sunday to do some resoluting and
endorsing of their own.
The major development of the
past week was the announcement
by Willis Mahoney, late of Klam
ath Falls but more recently of Port
land and Washington, D. C, that he
has decided not to run for the Dem
ocratic ' nomination for Congress in
the third Oregon district. Mahoney's
decision is said to have followed
scouting expeditions through his dis
trict which revealed him as a poor
third in the three-sided primary
race. His withdrawal leaves the
field to Nan Wood Honeyman, vet
eran state senator from Multnomah
county who would like to try her
hand at lawmaking in the larger
field back at the national capital.
Business is booming in Oregon's
industries if reports to the State
Industrial Accident commission can
be accepted as any indication of bus
iness conditions. Industrial payrolls
in the state for the first three months
of 1940 hit a new high mark at $39,
131,885, reports to the commission
show. This was $3,300,000 ahead of
the first three months of 1939 and
$6,000,000 more than was paid out
to industrial workers in the first
quarter of 1938. That employment
in this state is still on the upgrade
is indicated by reports for March
which show industrial payrolls to
have been approximately $1,000,000
ahead of February, with 127,174 men
employed for an increase of 11,000
over March, 1939.
The World War Veterans State
Aid commission is in the real estate
business to the tune of more than
$3,000,000, according to a report by
Jerrold Owen, executive secretary
to the commission. Properties taken
over by the commission to protect
the state's investment through bonus
loans and now being offered for
sale include 452 farms and 827 city
properties. Owens' report indicates
that, in the experience of this com
mission, city properties for which
the state paid $3,811,623 have been
sold at a profit of $80,579. On the
other hand the commission has tak
en a loss of $33,164 on farm proper
ties in which it had $1,503,752 in
vested. .
A total of 121 applicants for ad
mission to the Oregon bar will take
the examinations in July, according
to Arthur S. Benson, clerk of the
state supreme court. This will be
the largest class since 1929 when
124 applicants took the test with
78 of the ' number passing. Six of
the 121 applicants in the class this
year are women. The largest class
on record in this state, Benson
pointed out, was that of 1913 when
160 applicants took the test with
131 being admitted to the bar. In
1919 and again in 1920 only 30 ap
plicants took the bar examinations.
Youth Held for
"Snitching" Car
Gordon Forester, 15, of Dayton,
Wash., is being held in the county
jail charged with larceny of an au
tomobile. The youth worked a cou
ple of days last week at the R. B.
Rice farm and was sent over to
Edward (Puff) Rice's place to help
out for a little while. He cancluded
to go to Spokane and appropriated
"Puff's" car for the trip. The chief
of police at Pullman recognized the
car and arrested the driver.
Forester's parents have been no
tified of the youth's escapade and
requested to appear in his behalf.
News of the death of Alice Lat
ourell, former Heppner girl, was
received in Heppner last Thursday
evening. Death was due to a gun
shot wound, according to report in
the daily- press. Alice was the fos
ter daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Charles
Latourell, formerly of Heppner and
residents of Cutler City for several

Miss Lucille Vale, county health
nurse, and Mrs. Clara Beamer re
turned Sunday from Portland where
on Thursday, Friday and Saturday
they attended a social workers con
ference at the Multnomah hotel.
An outstanding feature of the con
ference was an address by Miss
Katherine Lenroot of the children's
bureau of the department of labor,
Washington, D. C, who spoke on the
results of the White House confer
ence on child health. The Portland
conference had a direct bearing on
the work being done by the health
association in Morrow county.
Dallas Wins Pilot's
License at Oregon
University of Oregon, Eugene,
April 24. Nick Dallas, Heppner has
passed the final flight under a civ
ilian authority examiner at the
University of Oregon to receive his
private pilot's license.
All ground school training at the
university came to an end for the
present Civil Aeronautics Authority
course with the final examinations
last week, Carlton E. Spencer, air
school head announced. Actual flight
tests by official government examin
ers constitutes the last hurdle be
fore the remaining trainees are eli
gible for private licenses. Private
flight permits allow passenger fly
ing on a non-commercial basis, Mr,
Spencer pointed out. Further train
ing is necessary before the pilots
can qualify for commercial air

tests, is a graduate of Long Beach
