Salem members of the. Dairy
"Cooperative meeting last night In

Toted to recommend to the direct
ors that R. W. Clark be made
'. manager of the local unit. , Mr.
Clark is Tlee-president of the or
ganization and led the local strike
of dairymen. - Since distributors
purchase from., the Cooperative as
'a unit. and make remittances to
the Co-op as a unit, this body in
turn most make distribution of
proceeds to the Individual mem
bers. , ' i -
" This will require a set of books.
keeping accounts for each dairy
man as to the quantity of milk
he delivers. Payments are made
twice monthly. It. is not deter
mined yet whether the checks
will be mailed from here or from
the central office In Portland.
Another responsibility of the
local . manager la , to dispose . of
. the surplus grade B milk. Hither
to this has been charged back
against the Individual dairyman
7 by the distributor, lowering his
. proceeds. . Now the Co-op will
handle this surplus, diverting it
to manufacturing plants for but
. ter. Ice cream, etc
This brings a lower price, but
the Co-op will know definitely
, the amount of the surplus of the
whole district. The local man
ager will arrange to divert sur
; plus of any one distributor to
; some other distributor having a
deficiency of grade B milk; or If
there Is no such deficiency, then
to. dispose of the surplus as C
grade milk for manufacturing.
The Salem members voted to
make the Producers Milk com
pany plant on South Liberty the
office and depot for handling the
surplus milk. Mr. Clark is presi
dent of this company, which to a
- distributor and' has - no official
connection with the Co-op.
Mr. Clark said last night he
might resign as president of the
Producers Milk company and
guaranteed that h would admin-.-
ister the affairs of the Co-op 1m
' partially as among the various
distributors. A reason advanced
- for using this plant was that It
; would save the cost and operat
ing overhead of a new plant.. .
The matter of leveling the sur
plus and deficiency as between
. here and Portland was discussed.

WASHINGTON, Aug. 7 (AP) -The use of practiced In
"vogue during the inquisition of the middle ages was
charged directly against department of labor immigration
officials today by the Wicxersnam commission
In its tenth report to
sion, discussing deportation,
tutionai, ; tyrannic ana oppressive
methods were employed in the
examination annually of about
100,000 supposed alien. In ad
dition, the report said that rigid
enforcement of rules in the actual
deportation of about 15,00k per
sons annually too often wreaked
hardships that "violate the plain
est dictates of humanity."
- Forecast by commission mem
bers as probably the most contro
versial of their studies since that
on prohibition, the ; report drew
heated - dissenting opinions from
two commissioners -Col. Henry
W. Anderson' of Richmond, Va.,
and former Justice Kenneth Mac
kintosh of , the Washington state
supreme court. -
The two 1 charged separately
that the commission's expert, Ru
ben Oppenhelmer, Baltimore law
yer, who drafted all but seven
pages of the 179-page report, had
too severely indicted labor de
partment officials. .
. "I do not believe," said Mac
kintosh, "that these laws are be
ing so negligently or abusively
administered as this report seems
to indicate. To believe otherwise
I' would require more clear and
convincing evidence than has
been offered so far."

and 'M. E. Staton -
Twenty-seven, thousand dollars
in general aamages ana szsau m
specific damages to cover hospital
and doctor bills are sought In an
auto accident ease filed late yes
terday in the circuit court here.
Alma M. Alsman la plaintiff In
the action and Olat Mortensen
and Morgan B. Staton are named
as Joint defendants.
Four autos were Involved In
the wreck which occurred April
12. 1931. one-half mile north of
New Era on the Pacific highway.
Alsman Is alleged to have been
driving north at 2:15 p. m. He
was 50 feet behind Mortensen
wh was driving his car at the
alleged rate of SO miles an hour,
Mortensen speeded up his car to
nass Harold Blum who was 30
feet ahead of him.
As he did. Staton. who was
driving south at a rapid rate,
swung his car-to the left to avoid
running head on Into Mortensen.
Instead, he collided squarely with
the car driven by Blum.' As these
two cars piled up they blocked
the highway on the right side
and Alsman. coming from be
hind, ran into them.
He says he was permanently
injured as a result of the crash.
Several bad fractures occurred,
his nervous system- was perma
nently disabled and even extend
ed medical treatment will not be
of complete avail, the plalntin
declares.
He holds Mortensen was guilty
of careless, fast, reckless driving
and that along with Staton. also
accused of poor driving, was re
sponsible for the accident.
Five local attorneys wui
be
counsel for the plaintiff.
