sales tax and judged by sustained applause and impassioned
oratory, scored an initial victory in the impending legislative
fight over the new proposal in state taxation.
Ray W. Gill, state grange master speaking in the house
chambers before the senate and house committees on taxa
tion, and a large audience, characterized a state sales tax as
the "most vicious tax measure ever proposed in Oregon."
He declared the tax was promoted in Wall street, propa
gandized throughout the nation and was a movement on the
part of people with large incomes to escape taxation.

Gill said that he spoke advised
ly as grange master, inasmuch as
the state and the national grange
organizations were solidly against
the tax. "The sales tax is a pain
less, smooth extractor of daily
revenue from the pockets of com
mon people," he declared. "The
well of income taxes in this state
has not dried up; men with sal
aries are able to pay and should
pay more."
Edward McCornack, chairman
of the house committee on taxa
tion, called the meeting to order
and presided. Earl A, Fisher, state
tax commissioner, opened the dis
cussion by explaining the mount
ing state deficit and saying that
the sales tax offered a feasable
means of shifting undue burdens
from real property to the gener
al consumer.
D. M. Webb of a tax league ln
Portland, said he represented an
organization heartily in favor ot
the sales tax. He said the prop
erty tax was antiquated and In
equitable. Webb cited the action
of the wool growers' organization
and an eastern Oregon tax league
which supported the sales tax.
State is Solvent
Avers Salem Man
Charles Zenan of Salem, speak
ing as a taxpayer, declared the
state was not insolvent, ana
should avoid either a sales or
property tax Tn 1933. He said the
state should postpone its obliga
tions like any other creditor. "The
special session should adjourn
without levying any tax," he de
clared. Albert Slaughter, member of
the executive committee of the
state grange, characterized official
statements about the existing
state deficit as "clear as mud"
and launched a biting attack on
allegedly poor state practice in
handling the Item of unexpended
legislative balances. He declared
only a minor deficiency existed
la state funds.
Charles Galloway, speaking as
a taxpayer, defended the Missis
sippi sales tax plan which pre
ceding speakers had assailed as a
courageous, modern system ot
taxation. "Many eloquent, pas
sionate and incorrect statements
have been made here." Galloway
said. "I am willing to keep an
open mind and to look for good
and improvements in taxation
wherever I find them."
