Some fo'ks think that writing poetry
does not pay, but W. T- Rigdon,. who
has been doing considerable in that line
lately, is of another opinion. He has
the figures to prove it. During the
bridge day celebration he sold 400 cop-
ies of his "Ode to the Bridge'' from
which he turned into the Red Cross
'treasury $20.00, Then te wrote a poem
for the Wisconsin folks when they ob
served their annual picnic and the sales
amounted to $10.00 which was also
given to the Red Cross. Now Mr. Rig
don is working on a poem for Iowa day,
August 17, which he will sell for the
Red Cross and he figures that before
many months pass, he will have bene
fitted the Red Cross more than flOO,
from the sale of his poetry.

There is still an impression that if a

'stein has roceived special instructions
that no packages must be forwarded
from the postoffice at Salem unless
there is shown a special permit from the
soldier's regimental or superior offi
cer. An officer cannot O. K. his own

letter can be mailed, A package to be
mailed overseas should not ba brought
to tho postoffico unless the sender can
present the special permission, signed
by a regimental officer.

10 HOKE CONVICTS
ATTEMPT TO ESCAPE

Robert Burns, serving from 2 to CO
years for forgery from Multnomah
county, and J. R. Rogers, colored, serv
ing from 1 to 10 years for assault with
intent to kill, gave Penitentiary offi
cials a lively morning at the prison
today when each attempted to stage
a spectacular escape, but each in his
own way and at different times. With
Burns it was his third chance in a
year, as he escaped August 8, 1917
and May 28, 1918.
Burns was working on the inside of
the prison yard at the flax mill, as
sisting in loading flax onto wagons.
Guard A. E. Bell, who is a new man at
the work, had been told to watch out
for an effort such as Burns tried,
but wa9 not looking as he evidently
misunderstood the instructions, and
while the guard's back was turned
Burns slipped in under a pile of flax
on a wagon and was covered up by
his comrades. He succeeded in getting
outside of the prison walls under the
flax and at a convenient moment slipped-
out from under his covering and
made his getaway. A man named
White, who lives on D street, saw Burns
hotfooting it cast on that street and
notified the prison authorities. Guards

stand on the street and these were
spotted as a possible hiding place for
the quarry and Burns was pulled from
out of a cellar. Ho was armed with
a long dirk, which from its appearance
was unquestionably ' slipptcd in from
the outside in some manner.
In the meantime Sam Worrell, guard
on Post No. 1, was having his troubles
with the little negro, Rogers. Rogers
is employed as an oiler and handy man
at the gate and Worrell told him to
oil tho hinges on the outside. As the'
gate opened, for him to go at the work,;
Rogers started to beat it. Worrell
shouted at him, but when Rogers only
sprinted the faster, Worrell took a
shot at him with his Krag-Jorgensen
rifle. At that Rogers hopped behind
a pillar, being missed by only a hair.
Worrell held Rogers behind the post
with a threat of further shooting and
Warden Murphy grabbed the man up
and took him back into tho prison.

to a letter received by Governor Withy-i-oinbe

Superintendent Churchill reports that
there was a vast movement of high
school boys toward recruiting stations
yesterday throughout the state when
the impression got abroad that yester
day was tho last day in which enlist
ments could be made in tho volunteer
service. He communicated with W, F.
Woodward; new chairman of the State
Council of 'Defcnse, who advised him
that such enlistments could not be
made yesterday and the boys attempt
ing it were having their trouble for
their pains. Mr. Woodward told him
to urge students to remain in school
as the government no doubt will, keep
them there as long as possible, whether
they become of draft age or not. At
least such was the policy announced by
Secretary of War Baiter in a com
munication sent to Superintendent
C'hnrchill some time since.
It is expected that the Stato Council
of Defenso will need $25,000 to conduct
its affairs during the next biennium.
At least that is tho cstimato made in
a telegram received by the State Tax
Commission from John K. Kollock, sec
retary of that organization.
An estimated deficiency of 110,000

pected to mount up to $1100,000.
The Oregon Naval Militia is coming
back strong with a request for $30,710,
in a report tiled with the State Tax I
t'ommission. It had been expected that i
the Naval Militia would probably seel"
no funds for tho next biennium, or at I
least only a nominal request- But it j
wishes $20,000 for harbor patrol work, ;
to see tnat harbor regulations are not
violated and that war work is protected '
from enemy agents. It also wishes I
funds' for a ralio school and for head- !
quarters where splicing, knotting and
elementary seamanship may be taugh,t.
Following are ctimates filed by var
ious state activities with the State

pective wants for the coming biennium:
