Lieutenant Louis Ccmpton Ap
pointed Parole Officer
The vacancy in the management of
the state .penitentiary created by the
resignation of Parole Off Leer Joe Kel
ler was filled yesterday afternoon by
Governor Olcott in the appointment of
First Lieut. Louis ComPton to that po
sition an appointment that will meet
with instant and popular favor in the
belief that in toth experience and tem
perament the appointee i well quali
fied to serve in this capacity.
As is well known, Lieut. Compton
was for a Jieriod of years secretary of
the T. M. C. A. previous to his enter
ing military service, lie was for sev
eral years connected with the Oregon
national guard. Along with this goes a
record of service with the Oregon
troops on the Mcocioan 'border, and also
service with tho American cavalry in
the il'hillipmes. He wen to trance:
with the Third Oregon, was transfer
red to the artillery corps, served five
months in sone of tho active sectors,
and received serious wounds on the
tChairvpagna .front whieh sent hint to
the hospital for six weeks, i'or excep
tional bravery under fire on tM front
he recoived the eroix do guerre. Fol
lowing the signing of the armistice he
was for several months with the intel

with the remnant of Company M.

have given lot of time and thought

Lieutenant Oompton will bring to the
office just the qnalifieations which
are necessary for giving the hi(het
degree of service.
"The success or failure of the pa
role system depends largely upon the
man Who administers the functions fall
ing to the "parole officer and I feel
confident that Lieutenant omjton
will snake a highly ef f wient man f or
that position. He has executive abili

reputation which I believe make him
eminently fitted for the pot."

Soldiers Like Boys,
While passing through various mili

front to Moscow, I found soldiers young,
satisfied, well clothed, well fed and well

American! rifles and ammunition sold to
tho old government. The staffs appear
ed boyish, I saw no evidence at the
oft-reported cruel discipline of abused
ex-officers forced to labor under threat
of death. On the other hand, the army
resembled a hugh group of simple mind
ed, enthusiastic boys playing at war.
Once while I was awaiting orders from
a division staff, the bicycle cornier was

that the entire staff hed deserted their
