that he has the appearance of being

Politics In Removing C, t.
Gates as Member of State
Fair Board.
Removal Is Claimed to Be Di

Oregon and Will Be Acceptes
As Such.
SALEM, Or.; June 2. Governor Oi
cott Thursday received the resigna
tion of Bert Anderson of Medford aB'
a member of the state game commis
sion, effective at the governor's ear
liest convenience. ,
in his letter Anderson ascribes the
governor's summary removal of C. B.
Gates as a member of the state fair
board as the reason for his action.
I Mr." Anderson expressed regret at
the necessity for severerag his con
nection with the state game commis
sion, declaring that "I do not feel that
I care to have my fraedom of action
hampered by being connected with an
administration that sees fit to play
pilltlcs with the reputation and stand
ing of one of southern Oregon's best
known and best loved citizens."
Anderson's letter of resignation
'1 hereby respectfully tender my
resignation as a member of the state
game commission, to take effect at
your garliest convenience,

through the press that you have re
moved Charles E. Gates, mayor of
Medford, from the state board of fair
"A courteous letter from you asking
for Mayor Gates' resignation would
have been of small importance and

myself or other citizens of southern
Oregon, but a summary removal, coup
led with the press statement that
."this action is taken under the pro
visions of section 4043, Oregon laws,

different matter.

produced on national official tests

National Dairy History.
Her primative homo on the Isle of
Jersey in the English Channel, has
iwith its mild climate, similar to that

of the dairy breeds for production of

great tests for economy of production
she has led the flock. ,
