Thirty Pulling Machines Do
Work of 1200 to 2400
Hand Pullers
Will Begin Coming in for Canning
Early Next Week, and Erer
Green Blackberries Will Ar
rive by Middle of Week
It Is one thing after another in
this land of diversity; and gen
erally several things at once. It
is seed time and harvest every
month In the year here.
The canneries are all taking a
-little breathing spell. But it will
not be for long. Fear picking
will begin the first of next week
in southern - Oregon. In a few
days after the Salem canneries
will be going full blast the can
neries here that are getting ready
for a Bartlett pear pack.
One of the cannery managers of
Salem said yesterday that ever
green blackberries will begin to
come in -about August first. That
is a week from tomorrow.
Flax Harvest Is 0 - i
In the mean time, flax" harvest
is on. A number of the pulling
machines, that had been "spotted"
for several days, got to going a
few days ago. Yesterday, 29 of
them were running. , They will all
be running today; 30 of them.
Including the 10 new pulling ma
chines manufactured this year at
the state-.flax plant
And the SO machines will be
pulling as much flax as 1200 to
2400 men and women could pull
in the old way, by hand. Each
machine will pull five acres and
up. It takes eight people to pull
an acre by hand; 4eple to pull
five acres. j.iy
A pulling "michineT-starttng
very early and running very late,
may pull 10 acres.' The machine
does not get tired.'. The tractor

get tired. It does not have to
stop even for meals. Two 'men
run a pulling machine; the trac
tor driver and the man to watch
and attend to the binding.
The reader will gather from the
above that it will not take long
to finish flax harvesting in this
district; going at the rate of 150
to 300 acres a day. Some small
patches will, of course, be pulled
by hand. "
' One of the great advantages of
pulling with the machines is the
fact that the harvesting can be ac
complished when the flax is just
right to pull, in order to yield the

early today.
Another fire was burning in
Wahkiakum, eounty two miles
east of Cathlamet The ' blase
gained headway today but as no
green timber is threatened, was
not considered serious.
Temperature neared the 100
mark in Cowlitz county. Wash.,
today,, with an accompanyingt low
huraidity, making the fire situa
tion serious.
Property damage estimated at
550,000 with small insurance was
caused by the fire that broke out
in the planer shed of the ifaple

Sunday evening about 8 o'clock
Mr. Young, another young man
and two girls, weref coming back
up the river from wodland Park.
Just about the tlmeithey reached
the last bridge belo Salem, they
decided it was time; to replenish
the supply of gasoline in the. tank
connecting with the engine.
Young got the extra can of
gasoline and brought it to the en
gine. Just as he started to pour
the liquid Into the tank, It caught
fire. The exact cause was not
known, but it was believed to be
the heat of the engine.
At any rate flames enveloped
the can. and Joe's hair caught fire-J
With' admirable presence or mna,
in view of the fact; that an ex
plosion might be expected any in
stant, Joe hurled the blazing can
of gasoline into the water and
then dived in himself, extinguish

throuch his hair. Jle acted so
quickly that his scalp was not

With Its auditorium filled to ca

service held at 2:30. All comers
were greeted at the door and were
asked for their names, which were
written down for permanent rec

totalled considerably over 600
Programs and hymnals were in
constant use as fans during the
entire meeting. Dr. Norman K.
Tally, pastor, assured the visiting
members of the Willamette Pres

usual for Salem, and added Hhat
all Salem weather, wet or dry, hot
or. cold,- Is good weather. ;i Dr,

that sounded like California.

churches were present to see the
new building and to felicitate the
Presbyterians on its completion.

Opinion of Attorney General Van Winkle; if. Upheld, Will De

For the reason that the state of Oregon has not complied
with the conditions of congress authorizing the taxing of na
tional banks, stock of all national banks in this state is ex
empt from taxation.
This was the substance of an opinion prepared here Mon
day by I. H. Van Winkle, at the request of Earl Fisher, state
tax commissioner. The query was based on a decision of. the
United States district court in Portland in a suit brought by
the Brotherhood Co-operative National Bank against T. M.

lector for Multnomah county. The
federal court held for the plaintiff
. The state commissioner said
the opinion' of the attorney gener
al apparently implied that nation
al bank stock is exempt from tax
ation In the state of Oregon, while
the stock of state" banks is taxable
under the state laws. , .
The constitution or the state of
Oregon provides that all taxation
shall be uniform on the same
class of subjects within the terri
torial limitation of the authority
levying the tax," read the attorney
general's opinion.
"The constitution provides that
the legislative assembly shall, and
the people through the Initiative
may, provide by law uniform rules
of assessment and taxation. All
taxes shall be levied and collected
under general laws operating un
iformly throughout the state.
"The fullest discussion of these
sections of the constitutions is to
be found in the case of the Stan
dard Lumber company vs. Pierce
in that case it was found that a
proviso of income tax act of 1923
was unconstitutional. It was held
by the court that thi . proviso
should be treated as stricken from
the act and the remainder of the
act enforced. The proviso In ques
tion permitted corporations doing
business within the state to deduct
iividends paid to residents of Ore
gon but did not permit-such "de
ductions of dividends paid to non
residents.. ' -
The situation relattive to tax
ation of state banks is quite dif
ferent. The states have no author
ity to tax a federal agency unless
expressly authorized by congress.

that the probe would require sev
eral weeks. Similar investigations
have been conducted by Mr. Fair-

cept; Faith, Says Governor;
! Regulation Likely
Investigation and possible revi
sion of laws regulating all corpor
ations in Oregon doing a financial
business that are not already reg
ulated by the banking laws, Is the
purpose of a committee appointed
here yesterday by Governor I. L.
Members of the committee are
Richard W. Montague, E. B. Mc
Naughton, E. C. Pease, A. A. Com
rie, R. A. Booth. Amadee Smith,
Clyde E. Apperson, C. A. Hart and
Judge j. P. Cavanaugh. Governor
Patterson has requested the com
mittee to meet at the offices of
Carey and Kerr in Portland, Aug
ust 2 to perfect an organization
and outline its operations.
Instructions Given
"Your Investigations," read a
letter prepared by Governor Pat
terson, "will include finance com
panies, ' brokerage houses, mort
gage and security companies that
issue certificates of interest in
mortgages and securities, savings
and loan, building and loan, in
dustrial loan companies and bond
companies selling securities on in
stallments, or Issuing temporary
or interim certificates.
"Present regulatory law which
are found to be inadequate or un
satisfactory could be revised by
the committee, and made ready
4for presentation to the legislature
tn such form as would cover the
situation in the judgment of the
committee. Where there Is no law
the committee could prepare an
entirely new bill.
Public Not Protected
"My understanding is that any
corporation which receives a char
ter from this state authorizing it
to transact a financial business
may, by virtue of such authority,
take the public's money and issue
for it some sort of receipt. This
receipt may be, as in the case of
banks, an entry in a deposit book
or savings book, or a certificate
of deposit, or in the ease of insti
tutions of the kind listed, may be
an Interim certificate for delivery
of bonds, a debenture, mortgage
certificate, or note secured by col
lateral pledged with a trustee.
"It does not matter what form
the transaction takes, the princi
ple is the same. The public parts
with its money relying upon the
financial soundness of the insti
tution with which it deals and the
competency and integrity of its
management. The public has no
means of. its own of verlfvinr
these matters, but must and does
do business with such concerns,
relying entirely upon faith.

Whoever made the statement a
week ago that there would be no
summer this -year, was wholly,
completely and entirely- wrong.
So say residents of Salem, along
with those of nearly every other
part of, the northwest. Sarcasm
about the absence of summer heat
will not be indulged in again for a
long time, they promise.
The report of the local weather
observer yesterday evening car

story: "Maximum temperature
This brief statement meant
shattering of all previous . heat
records for this year, beating Sun
day's scorching temperature by
just one point, and setting a mark
that has seldom been equalled' on
the hottest summer days In Salem.
The record temperature was sup
posed to have been set at 108 just
a year ago yesterday, but - there
was considerable discredit cast
upon this figure at the time, many
comparing the report with read
ings on their own hermometers
and declaring that the government
