Mr. Roosevelt spoke directly to youth to the generation that came of age after 1929 and found its opportunities stifled by the depression. Ho held forth to youth his County Treasury Richer by $153,000 Over April 1935 Linn county's treasury is richer by $153,529.89 now than it was at this time last year, according to County Treasurer Grover C. Nance, who reported that yesterday's daily balance showed a total of $553,095.68 on hand. On April 13, 1930 the total was $401,-565.79. These totals, the treasurer said, each represents the approximate peak ot accumulated linances in the treasury for the respective years of 1936 and 1935. The treasurer said this indicates that tax payments are increasing, both as to delinquent and current taxes. Of the present ' treasury total, $418,756.94 is in the sheriff's depository account, and is as yet undistributed among the several county funds. The remaining $134,338.74 already stands to the credit of the funds, chief among which ore the general fund, $73,-710.42; general road fund, $3655.65; road district fund $1712.33; non-high school district $2403.84; and old age pension fund $6541.26. MARTIN'S PA! RULED LEGAL Salem, Ore., April 14. The annual salary of Oregon's governor is properly $7500, the state supreme court decreed today. The court divided, 6-1, however, in saying the constitution did not limit the salary to $1500 per year. Justice Percy R. Kelly wrote the dissenting opinion. Justice John L. Rand wrote the prevailing opinion, affirming Circuit Judge L. J. Lewelling of Marion county. Ed A. Jory, Salem, raised the question in court, suing Governor Martin, Secretary of State Snell and Slate Treasurer Holman. Jory maintained the constitution st'l the ofiieials' salaries at $1500 each for the governor and secretary of stale and $800 for the treasurer. The high court found the constitution put no limit that would prevent the legislature from raising the salaries to $7500 for the chief executive and $5400 for the secretary of state and state treasurer. Governor Martin draws only $5475 per year, however, having taken a voluntary salary cut. "When the constitution is examined as a whole and the many instances where the iramers used words of inhibition are noted, the fact that no such words were used in fixing these salaries indicates most strongly that it was not the intention ot its Iramers to prohibit the legislature from increasing these salaries at any time when such increases should become necessary," the court said. Father Files Suit To Block Adoption Adoption proceedings involving his infant daughter have halted by intercession of the father, A. S. Medlock, with objections based upon his contention that he, not the child's prospective foster parents, is entitled to its custody. Medlock alleges in his repre-senation to the local court that when his wife sued him for divorce last year he engaged counsel to appear for him and look after his interests. His attorney fell down, Medlock declares, and the defendant was' declared in default- Mrs. Medlock received custody of their infant daughter, Lucy Juanita, and the divorce was granted in July. The mother gave the child to another couple for adoption. Now Medlock has decided he wants his child. He is asking that the adoption procedings be halted and that the divorce case be reopened.

Premier Benito Mussolini has decided to defy Great Britain and the League of Nations to "dictate" peace terms with Ethiopia, it was understood today.

A strong recommendation that congress appropriate at this session $250,000 to finance five survys on market possibilities of Bonneville power was forwarded today by Governor Martin to President Itoosevelt, Oregon's congressional delegation and others in Washington, D.C., it was announced today by Ormond R. Bean, chairman of the Oregon State Planning board.

Washington, April 14. Farm cooperatives and power districts: not private utilities will receive a major portion of the new $410,-000.000 rural electrification fund because power companies are. reluctant to join in the new deal's plan for "a cultural renaissance in agricultural areas," according to Administrator Morris L. Cooke. Both the senate and house approved the 10-year plan to supply reasonable-cost ".. electricity to thousand of country homes, and now need to settle only minor differences before the measure goe's to the White House. President Roosevelt's approval is certain. . Cooke said utility companies in general had avoided his offer to borrow federal money at 3 per cent over a 20-year period to aid in the program.. He emphasized "we're not fighting the power interests" and refused to comment on the reason for their action- Other power oiti-cials explained, however, the companies believed it would be inconsistent to borrow funds for the rural electrification administration, and carry on their legal fight with the administration's Tennessee valley experiment and the municipal power program "of the public works administration. , Reluctance of the companies to participate, led Cooke to map 1 1 is program around farm cooperatives in the new deal's program to furnish energy to a portion of the 6,000,000 American farms now without electric light. Only 800,-U0U now have current.

From the Headlines By Deacon Richmond " 'Shadows' Is Oregon Penitentiary Magazine" "Edited by Train Robber" When one is shut within stone walls, as punishment for crime, It's well to have constructive work. while they are "doing time" for. when the mind is busy, with a project that is planned, it's free to leave the prison v. alls and wander through the land. The body oft must be confined for society's protection; but the thoughts may be at liberty, if thev have the right direction. There are shadows in the prison: there are shadows, too. outside and one can't quite escape them, no matter where they hide; but, when the mind is active, with things one wants to do, he finds the shadows are less dense and the sun comes smiling thrnurh. We'd 1 liflVe to make a waeer that, when! ;Viinates are employed with work that is constructive and thavsvallyl is enjoyed, they'll not be Byting' troubh-.for the warden and the guardiTWid that the privileges they get wbring their just rewards.

Men wore kidnaped, blackjacked and slugged with brass knuckles in Chicago to day as Illinois voted in its most bitterly contested primary of many years. The presidential hopes of Frank Knox and Sen. William E. Borah were in the balance. Warm sunshine favored pros pects of a record vote, perhaps within 100,000 of the 2,600,000 registered. Attorney Kidnaped Terrorist tactics were general in some Chicago wards. Three men were reported to have kidnaped Marvin J. Bas, attorney for Lawrence O'Brien, anti-organization democratic candidate for state representative. Another anti-machine worker, Ludwig Ptacyn-ski, was taken from a polling place in , an automobile by four men. A policeman fired several shots after the car. Three other election workers were reported slugged or kidnaped in another word. The contest between Knox, Chi cago publisher, and Borah, Idaho senator, each seeking the 57 republican delegate votes to the national convention, vied for importance with that between Gov. Henry Horner, seeking democratic renominntion against Dr. Herman N. Bundesen, regular machine candidate! r ' Workers Driven Off Horner workers, who campaigned against state domination by the powerful democratic machine of Mayor Edward Kelly and Pat Nash, democratic national committeeman, charged Chicago police with arresting needlessly a Horner candidate for word committeeman, and a Horner worker deputized as a special state highway policeman. In other instances, they said, police chased Horner workers from the polls.

Political chieftains and politicians appraised President Roosevelt's "opening speech" of the 1936 campaign today, finding it short of the fiery document they had anticipated. Almost devoid of resounding phrases, entirely lacking in direct attack on his enemies, the chief executive 'did indicate the new deal would campaign on a pledge of continued social and economic readjustment. He spoke last night to 20,000 Young Democrats here. By radio,, his voice was carried to organizations of Young Democrats and to voters generally throughout the country. He promised continued aggressive action to lessen unemployment and "bring under proper control the forces of modern society." . . : ' Observers saw much significance in what seemed a flank criticism of industry's role in the unemployment problem. Resurrecting the ghost of NRA, the president said that while it was operative "a certain manufacturing industry" curtailed the average work week to 36.4 hours. Since the NRA was ended by the supreme court, the average work week has become ,39.9 hours. Assuming, he said, that the industry employed 166,500 persons, this meant that 10 per cent, or 16.650 persons, "have either lost their jobs, or, by working longer hours, are preventing 16,650 other people from getting employment. "It seems reasonable, therefore," he continued, "that industry can contribute in great measure to the increase of employment if industry ARMY ENGINEERS BACK WILLAMETTE CONTROL PROJECT Washington, April 14.

President Roosevelt tossed the first baseball of the season high and wide today and Pitcher Buck New-som missed it even after an heroic leap into the air. Appearing before a crowd of about 25,000 fans, the president was off form with his pitch and it barely tipped Newsom's glove.

"Your objective," he said, addressing youth, "is, I take it, this; an opportunity to make an honest living; a reasonable chance to inv prove your condition in life as you grow older; a practical assurance against want and suffering in your old age; and with it all the right to participate in the finer things of life good health, clean amusement and a part in the satisfactions of tho arts, the sciences, and religion. Faced with that objective, it is clear that many of the old answers are not the right answers." He outlined the major objectives of his administration, intended to lead to a realization of that objective, as: reduction in the work week to spread employment; establishment of minimum and maximum working ages, which would keep youth in school longer and provide the aged with rest and comfort, and spread employment; continuation of "social pioneering;" establishment ot minimum ("average" wages in industry; increased and wide distribution of "purchasing power. Washington, April " 14. --Presi dent William Green of the Amer ican Federation of labor, charging that the American Liberty League had made "an appeal to lawlessness on a nation-wide scale," told senate committee today that (there was a concerted campaign underway against organized labor in America. The Liberty League also was accused in testimony of blocking the work of the national labor relations board through legalistic maneuvers. Green said there was in operation at present conceited movement against organized labor paralleling the anti-union drive of the post-war period. Herbert Blankenhorn, research expert of the NLRB, testified that the board was three months behind in its work and unable to hear new complaints because of the necessity ol meeting legal obstacles raised by the league's attorneys. Both testified on the LaFolletle resolution for an investigation of alleged infringements of civil liberties. They united in denouncing what they said was a nationwide system of labor spying aimed by industrialists at breaking up the labor movement. Green said the fight for industrialists againit organized labor was by a "few wilful men who could not rid themselves of an old tradition." He denounced Ernest T. Weir of Pittsburgh, who, he charged, betrayed labor and used the NHA as a sti ike-breaking agency.
