keta, Waehlngtpn, D. C," Is the
I modest title of a modest man who
dropped quietly into Salem on
t Thursday, on bis rounds to do a
work that ' means millions ofi
money to growers nt aggregate!
E centuries of satisfied buying to
h to the hungry public of America.
, Mr. Samson is head of the

partment or agriculture tnat nas

;t, standard packing of fruits anc
I vegetables all over the nation,
f The work is growing rapidly, al
though It Is atlll new enough that
it isn't 'yet universally popular.
.h Demonstration proves Worth
But they come to like it. The
cucumber growers of Florida did
not think that Uncle Sam had any
5 Business monkeying with their
cone-producing - product; they
f wasted to sell their green menace
;rf:aout the government touching
I l U, and they wanted no atandard-
ii nation. But when they found
jioai government jnspevwou
i brought, them 60 cents .more a
J bushel because their weights and
, sites and -packing methods were
i assured to the consumer, they
J were glad to standardize. The
.?same thing has happened in many
i'lloea of , fruit and vegetable pro-
ndnction.. where the crowers have
profited and the consumers have
.;jbee pleased by knowing exactly
. i what they are buying.
; Oregon Legislature Acts
The last session of the Oregon
FJegialatu re passed an act author
izing the standardization of the
iUpple and pear pack. It will be
possible for everyone wishing to
ship these fruits to apply to the
state board, of. horticulture and
have an inspector designated who
will issue an official certificate
letting forth both the quality and
trade of the pack, which certlfi
cafe is evidence to the purchaser
ol the product he la buying. The
coot of inspection is borne by the
producer, as he is the one to gain
most by the certification, though
tli e. assurance that he is buying
properly graded goods ia of great
added value to the user as well
Protect km Afforded
Provision Is made by some of
tne states to give an inspection
at the producing end. so that the

Excess of $17,000 Beyond
Legal Limitation Discov
ered by Officials
In some manner which has not
as yet been made clear, Marion
county treasury Is enriched seve
ral thousand dollars through an
excess tax levy for 1921. Just
who Is to blame for the error in
estimating the tax limitation for
the county, is not known, but the
fact remains that at least $17,000
will have to be returned to tax
payers who have already paid in
their 1!2I aestnentB. The 6
per cent limit was .exceeded by
that amount.
According to the records of the
state tax commission. Marion
county's lloilt for 1921 Is $l.04ft,
118.70. under provllonn of the
Mate law. The total levy now
beinj: collected Is nald to be $1.
0xl.4r.ii. "o. Over half of this
amount lias already been collected
by Sheriff O. D. llower. making
a total of about $ 1 7.00( which
will have to be refunded to tax
payers. Judge Ilushey said last night,
that he thought an error was
made in copying tm figures,
though who was responsible he
was unable to say. The county
court may hare made the lulu
take, he said, though he did not
think so
The readjustment of the tax
rolls and refunding the monoy
will be a difficult task and Ik by
no mean an enviable one. But
the work will be done, it Is said,
with the least possible expense to
the taxpayers of the county.

LONDON, May 19. (By
The Associated Press) The
dinner of welcome by the Pil
grim society to the American
ambassador, George Harvey,
tonight was enveloped in far
deeper interest than usually
attends such a reception tp a
new ambassador. Not ohly
was it Mr. Harvey's first pub
lic appearance since his ap
pointment but there was gen
eral expectation that he woqld
reveal something of the nfew
administration's policy toward
t, u rope. v
The ambassador did not dis
appoint his audience, for he
brushed aside any lingering ii
lusion that the United States
would have any relations with
the league of nations- He al
so announced his appointmeri
to represent the president fn
the supreme council in the dig
cussion over Silesia.
Mr. Harvey's plain words!
on the league were a revela-jthis
tion and his plea for the clos
est cooperation between thlp
two great English-speaking
countries was impressive.
The British premier rather
",;sapnointd those who hoped
for more of international plain
speaking. He described the
plight of Europe, enmeshed ip
ancient feuds and gave warm
welcome to the new coopera
tion of America in world af
fairs. Duke of Connaught Prelda. ;
The Duke of Conr.aught pref
sided and Lord Desborough read
a message from the American
Lord Curzon, secretary for fori
clgn affairs, spoke briefly and
humorously referred to the league
of nations bv the wish that Lord
Robert Cecil, one of the chief
supporters of that organization
was In his shoes.
There were 350 diners, among
them the Duke of York and many
members of the peerage and rep
resentatives of the American coN
Ambassador Harvey, who wa
making his first speech since
presenting his credentials, de
clared American soldiers came td

i nited Mates and not to save

many, as sortie had contended.
Tribute to Pilgrim Paid.
Mr. Harvey paid tribute to the
Pilgrims as the most distinctive
link in the chain of blood rela

American noples and one of the)

drawn may be right or wrong,
but whether right or wrong their
bases obviously are the subject of
sectional influences. The heart
of our republic lies In the great
plain which stretches from the
Alleghenies to the Rockies '
It was from the haTdy stock
of that region, he declared, that
America had drawn seven of ten
of Its recent chief executives, in
cluding President Harding.
Harding I )t scribed. -
President Harding was portray
ed as "a typical, modern Ameri

but jealous of ne other man's.
resolute in maintaining his own
nation's richts, but not less
criipiilaus in recognizing the
rights of others, a fair, just, mod
est man, humble, but unafraid."
The outstanding attributes of
President Harding.' Mr. .Harvty
said, are breadth of vision, great
nets f heart, fitlelity to his race
no less than to his clan, and no
ti ore to his family than to his
ancestry, drawn from all parts of
the l'nited Kingdom. He de-
