state's handling of oil exploration
Haight, chairman of the legis

Board was raking it a bargain for
oil companies.
Ho said the board was leasing
land at 25 cents an acre while
owners of adjacent property were
getting twice as mucn.
Haight made his remarKS at a
meeting of the committee in Port
land. Appling replied at Salem:
"As Mr. Hsight knows very well.
the Land Board has for some time
been engaged in studies designed
to accomplish the very thing he
now glibly pretends to have in

"I would remind him that it lias
