English Women and Girls
Working In Factories Pay
Price of Patriotism
By J. W. Pegler
(Tinted Press staff correspondent 1
London, Aug. 25. (By mail) Sear
ed by molten metal, blinded by steel
shavings with fingers snipped off by
the cruel machinery of the munitions
factories, English women and girls are
paying the price of patriotism as well
as their men at the front.
Industrial accidents have not dimin
ished despite the claim of labor ex
perts that women are more careful
than men. i.ieir experience is believ-
eu to account for many of the acci
dents so the experts may be right after
all, in theory. But theory wont restore
sight or knead the kinks out of piti
fully mangled hands.
Another explanation is that, femi
nine puddles, machinists an. I lathe
hands become preoccupied at their
work when their thought flit to t".ie
men fighting in France, the ladle ips
or the belt slips off the roller, there's
a scream and another casualty goes
down on the growing list.

Visitors Swarm at
Camn Withycombe. Ore., Sept. fi.
Visitors swarmed to Camp Withycombe
today to welcome home infantrymen of
of the First, Second and Third battal
ions. Oreiron Notional Guard, just re
turning from Border service. Outsiders
were not welcome while the troops were
detraining, but. there was no objection
to them this afternoon, the routine of
camp life having been resumed.
Practically all the soldiers believe
they will soon be mustered ont. Many
of them expressed disappointment at
being recalled from Imperial beacn
where they spent the last week. The
artillery and calvary units of the O.
N. G. remain at the "front."
STALLION LAWS HELP.
Avoiding misrepresentation of stock
and preventing the state from becom
ing a dumping ground for unsound
horses, are given as two of the leading
values of the stallion registration laws,
by Carl N. Kennedy. O. A. C, the sec
retary of the State'Registration Board.
Other advantages are that the laws pre
vent the use of bogus pedigrees and lim
it the use of unsound sires. They are
also an education for the breeders and
tend to increase the public appreciation
of good horses.

IS NOT HARMONIOUS
Olcott "Whereased" But Kay
Would Not "Resolve"--The
The question of authority and man
agement at the state penitentiarv bob
bed up again at a meeting of the state
board of control yesterday.
The matter was precipitated by the
introduction by Secretary of State Ol
cott of a resolution along lines similar
to an oral agreement entered into some
time ago by Mr. Olcott and State Treas
urer Kay, to the effect that Warden
Minto of the prison should have full au
thority in prison affairs, this author
ity extending to the hire and discharge
oi umcers sua einpiovus ox liie institu
tion. - Governor Withycombe stated that the
resolution was directed against Parole
Officer Joseph Keller, and there is an
understanding nmoug people unofficial
ly interested that this statement is cor
rect. . Mr. Kay declares himself as being fa-
vornble to the resolution, but inasmuch
as the statutes covered the same points
as regards the authority of the war
den of the penitentiary he did not con
sider the resolution necessary.
. The resolution was laid on the table.
It reads as follows:
. "Whereas, It has come to the know
ledge of this board that conditions at
ihe Oregon state penitentiary are not
! sllcl1 as to produce the most satisfactory
results in the operation of that institu
"Whereas, John W. Minto, warden
of said penitentiary, has definitely stat
ed to members of this board that it is
impossible to operate said institution
satisfactorily without full authority in
the management of same being given
him; therefore be it
"Resolved, by the Oregon state board
of control, That we do extend to John
W. Minto, warden, full authority to
hire aud discharge Buch officers and em-
ployes of said institution as in his judg'
mvui. is conuucive ro me nest weirare
Oi such institution."
Parole Officer to Stay.
In an opinion given to Warden Minto
by Attorney General Brown yesterday,
the attorney general says: "This office
has heretofore advised that the parole
officer is an independent officer, and
that his appointment is made by the
board of control. To hold that the parole
officer is an assistant to the warden,
or is an officer whose duties require him
to be on the inside of the prison, it
would be necessary for us to hold that
j '" ' pcinicnimry may
appoint and remove the parole officer.
This authority we do not believe you l
. r ?, ,Y 4va.rfle.n M,nt naBna(
ticslly full authority at the prison since
he assumed the wardenship, and in no
ease has the board failed to uphold him
in any action.
While the board of control has auth
ority in all matters pertaining to the
state institutions, Mr. Kay does not
consider it consistent for the board to
usurp the prerogatives of the parole
board, of which Parole Officer Keller is
a member, and which has the appoint
ing of the parole officer.
An estimate of the amount of mon
ey needed to carry on the flax work for
the remainder of the season was intro
duced by Superintendent Crawford at
the meeting. The sum needed is given
as $20,420. There is now on hand about
4,000, which leaves about l(i,000 for
the emergency board to provide for at
its meeting next Monday morning.
Mr. Crawford states that after the
pulling of the flax is completed he may
use 150 prisoners in the various pro
cesses and will need four guards, mak
ing a monthly payroll of $4fi!), while the
prisoners working everv dav would
come to about 940. There will be no
product of the plant that can reach a
cash market before that time.
