shrinkage in county appropria­
tions which are matched by the
state, the report points out.
“Such changes in organization
will be effected as will insure the
greatest possible efficiency at the
lowest possible cost,” the board’s
report concludes. “Effort is be-
' ing made in all cases to retain as
many as possible of the most es­
sential types of work in the var­
ious institutions.
“While reduction have already
been such that efficient service is
threatened in many phases of
work, the board is deeply con­
scious of the economic emergen­
cy through which the state is
passing and is resolved to make
the best of the situation.”

William J. Moore, hitch-hiker arrested on a charge of
having murdered a friendly motorist, is apparently not a
professional criminal. The man who makes certain kinds of
crime his vocation is a distinct species of outlaw who works
methodically, is skilled in the technique of his trade, and
has his own place in the society of the underworld where
safe crackers are looked up to with respect and sneak thieves
and porch climbers are considered common riff-raff. Just
as he never commits a crime unless he has made careful
plans in advance and knows what he is doing, he never goes
beyond what he regards as necessary for the immediate
business at hand. He never shoots a man down unless he has
to in order to protect himself—not because he has any con­
sideration for his victims, but because he knows that if he
commits murder the pursuit is likely to be relentless and the
chances of his forced retirement are vastly increased. The

his stupidity and inexperience he knows no other way of
The depression has greatly increased the number of
amateur criminals, recruited from the ranks of those who
earned, after a fashion at least, an honest living when there
was plenty of employment. Because of their numbers, their
hit and miss methods and their tendency to use their auto­
matics upon mere impulse they are particularly dangerous.
Moore was tracked down as the result of as skilful de­
tective work as has been put into use in this state since the
D’Autremont manhunt. Equal zest and cleverness in running
down other of the individuals and gangs who are infesting
the big cities nightly might result in teaching to the stub­
born amateur the lesson that crime does not pay.

Question: Is the senate too inefficient to recognize the
efficiency of the bureau of efficiency, or is the bureau of
efficiency in reality a bureau of inefficiency?
Take your choice. We confess, however, to a wish that
the bureau of efficiency could eliminate the inefficiency of
the senate.

the normal schools submitted by
J. A. Churchhill, director of ele­
mentary teacher training.
Average annual reduction for
the past two years amounts to
$1,161,291 as compared with the
port shows. Curtailments effect­
ed by the board include salary
reduction throughout the sytems
already in effect ranging from 5
to 15 per cent, which involved
savings at the rate of $182,000
per year.
In order to meet further
shrinkage in income from pres­
ent authorized sources, additional
curtailments for the system ag­
gregating $830,000 are outlined
by the board in its report, part
of which will be made up by fur­
ther reducing salaries so that the
total cut under the 1931-32 base
will range from 9 to 27 per cent.
Additional drastic savings in the
salary account are being made by
heavy reduction in number of
staff members, made possible
through consolidation of certain
departments, decreased
ment, and complete elimination of
some former activities.

,An advance in the Oregon farm
price index from mid-November
to mid-December despite lower
average prices in the country as
a whole, is shown by data in a
report by the Oregon agricultural
extension service.
The circular gives the Oregon
index at 49 per cent of the 1926-
1930 average, a gain of 4 points
compared with the index in No­
vember. The gain is attributed to
the sharp advance in hop prices
around the first of December.
Prices for dairy products also ad­
vanced during this period.
The Oregon farm price index
at 49 in December 1932 com­
pares with 60 in December 1931,
70 in December 1930, and 109 in
December 1929. The average for
the 1926-1930 period of 100 was
one-third higher than for the
1910-1914 pre-war period, for
which the Oregon index is 75.
In terms of the 1926-1930 per­
