Efficiency Expert to aid

; Department, Wcrd
-Corernor Meier, at a meeting of
the .state highway commission
here Thursday, denied emphati
cally that a "housecleaning" of
highway department employes was
contemplated. II. r A. Lynch of
Redmond, who Wednesday was
reappointed a member of the
highway commission for a four
year term, attended the -meeting.
The commission voted to adopt
a suggestion by H. B. VanDuzer,
chairman, that a .complete survey
be made of ail activities of the
highway department. It was ar
gued that - such a - survey would
eliminate waste. Increase efficien
cy and reduce materially the oper
ating costs. ' Gorernor Meter- said
It was important that the commis
sion should hare a complete In-
rentory of all equipment and ma
terials on hand.
To be Enrplored ,
In remodeling and readjusting
the state highway department or
ganization the commission will be
assisted by an efficiency expert
to be provided by Governor Meier.
The work of the expert probably
will he limited to revising the
present system of purchasing sup
plies and equipment. The only
formal ann num rement made at the
close of the -conference was that
th next meeting of the commis
sion will be held in Portland April
St. Whether Mature sessions of
the commissioa will be held In Sa
lem probably wltf be determined
at that meeting. It was reported
that members of various county
courts and contractors have urged
that future meetings be held In
Portland and not in Salem, as sug
gested by Gorernor Meier.

Cherry rro-wers breathed easier
this week when Max Gehlhar re
ceived a wire from Senator Mc-
Nary stating that the matter ot re
vision of the cherry tariff would
not be reopened this year.
Cherry producers have had
much difficulty during the past
six years and Gehlhar has led the
fight to get a high protective
tariff on cherries. Last year he
went to Washington. D. C. in the
interests of the growers and suc
ceeded in getting almost exactly
the rates that Oregon growers de
sired. An appeal was pending
however and much uneasiness has
been felt during recent months,
Following President Hoover's
move denying approval to a re
duction the commission has indi
cated that no change will be made
this year. .
