THE PARKER PLAN
Because of conflicting: repqrts concerning: the so called
"Parker Plan" and its present status in California, the fol
lowing quotations from a wire just received by C. J. Hurd,
specialist in organization and markets, Oregon Agricultural
college extension 1 service, from Mr. Parker, should prove of
"ANSWERING YtfUR WIRE, CONTRACTS ARE NOW
IN STAGE OF PREPARATION. WILL MAIL YOU COPY
JUST AS SOON AS THEY HAVE BEEN ACCEPTED BY
Also, the following quotation from a letter received from
Mr. H. E. Erdman", prof essor of agricultural economics of the
University of California: "My information is that the plan
has not progressed to the point where the contracts are
available. If it is available it has very recently been made so."
From the above quotations it would appear that the Plan,
if there be a plan, is still in process of evolution and that no
one knows at the present time just what it will contain or
whether it will be accepted by the growers when perfected
j And in the mean while, those in Oregon interested in its
development will have to be content with surmises and
guesses as to its content.
CANADIAN BEETS, NOT OREGON'S
The farmers of the Fraser river valley in British Columbia
are planting or have planted 1000 acres of sugar beets, to be
made into sugar this year by the Bellingham, Wash., plant
of the Utah-Idaho Sugar company
The-guaranteed minimum price to the British Columbia
farmers being $6.50 a ton.
p This is the identical contract offered to the Salem district
farmers last fall by the same company
And the Salem district farmers did not take it
And the British Columbia farmers did
" And a factory is to be built in British Columbia next year.
This was what would have happened in the Salem district.
had our farmers taken the contracts last fall.
And over 45,000 acres have been contracted in all sections
to the Utah-Idaho Sugar company, including Utah, Idaho,
Montana, South Dakota and Canadathe South Dakota fac
tory being a new one now under construction, to be ready for
this year's crop, with 10,000 acres of sugar beets contracted
for it. -
BACK TO PROHIBITION
"With the appointment of Roy A. Haynes as acting commissioner,
the turn-is made' from promises back to prohibition. It is significant
that in assuming his new office Haynes made no statements about
what he Is going to do. He just set about doing it. In this he differs
from his former superior. General Lincoln C. Andrews, who has been
as prolific at prophesy as the oracle at Delphi. The appointment of
Haynes Is widely interpreted as a direct slap at Andrews and Secretary
Mellon.- Whatever the truth of this, the appointment definitely aligns
'President Coolldge on the side of the prohibitionists. Despite Haynes'
eclipse following the rise of Andrews, he has symbolized bone-dryness
in the administration of the law. Ilia restoration to a post of import
ance' a Tictory for the drys indicates a return to the policy of strict
enforcement.;:; i. r.
"Promises have been the distinguishing feature of General' An
drews' tenure of office. The-future has seemed the favorite time for
action rather than the present. In three months, in six months, in a
yeav something would have been done. But the people of America
are eager to hear what has been accomplished, not what may be done
at some tenuous period of tomorrow. 'General Andrews Promises
has been too frequent a headline, 'General Andrews Does too rare.
Interviews cannot take the place of accomplishments; nor can pro
hibition be enforced by talk. The manana policy may be very excel
lent in itsplace, but that place is most assuredly not in the enforce
ment of the law. What the nation wants in this particular instance
is history, not forecast."

TKLI-S COIFFl'RR MODELS
With more than 200,000 per
sons already homeless and the
mighty Mississippi .threatening
each instant to tear its way
through additional towns in the
one-time happy valley, the Ameri
can Red Cross finds itself fare to
face with probably the greatest
relief problem of the past cen
tury. The president of the United
Spates has actively participated in
mobilizing governmental agencies
and resources to assist the Red
Cross in its relief program. On
April 22, following the custom in
previous disasters of the first
magnitude, he issued a proclama
tion calling; upon the ' people to
subscribe to the Red Cross relief
fund. . This he did in his capacity
as president of the United States
and president also of the lied
Cross. He followed this action
with the appointment of a special
committee from his cabinet, com
prising Dwight F. Davis, secretary
of war; Curtis D. Wilbur, secre
tary of the navy Herbert C.
Hoover, secretary of commerce.
and Andrew W. Mellon, secrstary
of the treasury, to work in con
junction with Red Cross officials.
At the first meeting of this com
mittee with the Red Cross acting
chairman, James L. Fieser, and
others, it was decided that a min
imum of $5,000,000 will be need
ed to take care of the flood suf
ferers! The disaster was reported to
exceed in proportions the Florida
hurricane of last fall, when the
roster of homeless was 80,000. It
differs in that there is a huge total
of dead and wounded. In this
case, however, there is no definite
ly cut out problem as in Florida,
jfor the elements have not finished
their havoc. Whether the waters
will start to recede within a few
weeks o whether they will con
tinue to rise indefinitely, sweep
ing additional houses down to the
sen and engulfing additional acres
of farmlands and villages, cannot
