which will last from January to
July of that year, i Many Salem
people, learning of these tentative

of friends In Salem land surround

FARMERS IN NEED

the agriculture department based,
on comments on the commission
ers, "that the president had a!
thorough . knowledge, of, the agri-;
cultural situation and was sincere'
in his efforts that something
should be done to bring about
better' conditions in agriculture
and a better balance between ag
riculture and other Industries."
Proposed legislation expected to
come under the I commission's
study, it was believed, includes
the McNary-Haugen export cor
poration bill, the orris Sinclair
bill and the Capper-Williams and
Curtis Aswell measures?- all
cither awaiting consideration at
the coming short ession of con
gress or in the course of comple
tion in committees! i
Consideration ofj these and any
other measures that may be pro
posed later-is expected to be given
with the hope of " correlating or
eliminating objectionable features
and arriving at a, plan which will
suit all interested parties.
Present farm laws will be gone
over, it was said, fo rthe purpose
of determining whether they are
being properly enforced or are
grouped under the (proper depart
ment or bureau and whether it
would be advisable to transfer re
sponsibility for their administra
