WASHINGTON. Dec. 14. i
(AP) A new'Tarm relief bill in
last year's gown altered to fill
this season's demands " appeared
in the senate today,, but a contro
versy over whose name should
grace it prevented its introduction
in the house.
The measure, embodying the es
sential features of the McNary
Haugen bill, but shorn of most of
its objectlonal provisions, was of
fered by Senator McXary, repub
lican, Oregon, father of the bill
which has weathered two years of
stormy wrangling and the new
chairman of the senate agricultur
al committee.
A- companion bill was turned
over to Representative Purnell, re
publican, Indiana, and Representa
tive Fullmer, democrat, South
Carolina, with a request from sen
ate farm leaders- that they intro
duce it jointly, thus indicating
support from the three great farm
ing regions far west, m kid lowest
and south. Both Purnell and
Fullmer .are members of the house
agricultural committee.
Meanwhile, jC hair man Haugen
withheld final "approval until op
portunity for further study was
- "I an certalathat-8enator Mc
Nary'a ibill is all that we hope
for," he said, "but I wish to, study
it before I give any' expression."
The bill is understood to em
body the latest views of a sub-
stantial number of farm leaders
in both houses.
Representative Dickson, repub
lican, of Iowa, a farm leader, said
he" considered the measure the
most finished piece' of legislation
to ease the farm situation that
could be devised.
Although basically .a McXary;
Haugen bill, the .new measure is
different in several important re
spects. The "tariff yardstick" ad
vocated by Chairman Haugen and
the "fair and reasonable" price
standards are missing. The . new
bill contains no reference to price

Three prohibition pronouncements
were made today, by Lincoln C.

that drinkers faced no cheerful
outlook for Christmas liquor
through rum row; that every ef
fort will be made to give the en
forcement unit the 'right to use
$500,000 as secret service money,
and that the government can save
much money by permittting the
manufacture of additional whiskey
for medicinal purposes.
As to rum row, General An

of information showed very little
liquor had been smuggled through

Right around Salem there are
many fathers and mothers who
almost hate to" think bout Christ
mas being so near. It is not be
cause they do not believe in what
the day stands for. but rather con
ditions are such that they are not
able to bring the real spirit of
the time, into their home. In
other words, they are afraid that
Santa Claus will not visit their
home this year and so the kiddies
will face a big disappointment on
Christmas morn.
Santa ; Claus , knows about a
good many of these people and so
he is seeking , the cooperation of
others in order to bring cheer to
the needy ones, fle does, not
know about all ot them, however,
so. ha wanta their names reported
to The Statesman Christmas cheer
editor .and all ,joch, report will
be treated confidentially. Also,
the. youngsters, may address, their

the right party.
Santa Claus is f aciag a big task.
He realises-it, and so has, enlisted
the aid of The Statesman and the

slowly each passing day. Each
passing day means that Christmas
Is that much nearer, and in order
to bring happiness to every worthy
kiddle there should be a better re
sponse. Why not Join the cheer

when every worthy child arises on
Christmas morn be will find some
thing in his stocking? What a
sad day it will be for the kiddies
who find nothing but an empty

make such a thing impossible. He
wants to remember everyone.

Plan Now Being Used In Cali
' fornla, ' Coast Wide Or
gaiiiaation in Sight -
A plan is being 'proposed In
California for the orderly market
ing ot prunes that will no doubt
command a great deal of attention
from now on. The Statesman la.
able, through the kindness of 'a
Salem friend in the industry, .to
give a sketchy outline of the plan.
The pian owes in largest part its
Inception to Joseph M. Parker,
general manager of the California
Prune arid Apricot Growers asso
ciation (the California prune co
operative), and It has been talked
over extensively in that state, with
both growers and packers - ot
Taking in All Parties
The cooperatives have set up
the idea of .both a grower produc
tion and marketing of prunes.
leaving out of the picture the
packers and dealers.
The new plan proposes a 'joint
control and working-out ot th
marketing problems. - -
Under the plan proposed, ' tha
prune 'growers and, the -packing
distributing "group will each elect
its own board pf directors, out of
each of which it la then atranged
to name a joint execative commit-.
tee composed of four, or an equal
number from each "board, . th
ninth or odd member ot the board
to be an-appointed outside chair
man by the thus combined' exe
cntlve committee. ..This idea is ex
pected to, and would . probably, if
the personnel; is proper, result in
an equitable control 'and satisfac
tory adjudication of the. positions
resulting oot ot the two dlffetent
points of.view. The compensa
tiyis and 'returns to be ; made by
the packing-distributing group are
worked oat' on such a basin as It
Is thought will avoid "destructive
price competitions but retain sell
Ing enthusiasm.
