: "I think haste Is unnecessary,"
asid Abrams. "I do not blame
the goTernor for his veto: he
had to act. But I think It true
that restoration of this realty
Ipvt means the bankruptcy of
some of our counties. I think
it Is a reflection on. our ability
as a legislature to say we can't
. pass other means of revenue.
Personally I do not think either
a general realty levy or a gener
al" sales tax should be approved
y this legislature."
Mr. Lonergan, replying to
Abrams, said he thought the
legislature was rightfully sub
ject to criticism for passing the
millage repeal without ascertain
ing it the sales tax had passed
the senate. "If members want

Sworn' Duties of
Legislature Citra
Lonergan took up the tight for
sustaining the governor's veto.
Ho cited constitutional mandates
for the levy of the realty tax and
declared that legislative nullifi
cation of the tax Is a "strong de
parture from oar sworn duties as
legislators bound to uphold the
constitution." Lonergan said he
earnestly hoped the real property
levy would not need to f tay but
pending a time, when substitutes
were provided- he insisted the
tax remain and that the gover
nor's veto be sustained.
Representative Winslow of Til
lamook county sided with Loner
gan and contended that reenact
ment of the property levy would
be a strong inducement for the
legislature to stay in session un
til a substitute levy was provid
ed. "I doubt If any revenue bills
will pass the people this year
unless they are sugar-coated with
the inducement of taking off the
property tax," Winslow declared.
Winslow scored the stated prop
erty tax as one which did not col
lect three but six or seven mills
from counties, since money had
to come in cash to Salem where
as tax payments generally were
not being made on more than a
50 per cent basis.
Representative Hilton then
pleaded for more time to consid
er the veto. He said he was sor
ry to hear of the veto and want
ed more time to consider the con
stitutionality of the tax repeal

press that they were dissatisfied.
The high spot of the day polit
ically was the release shortly aft
er the veto message of aa unslrfv
ed communication containing
mainly thinly veiled pokes atthe
administration. The release was
made from State Treasurer Hol
man's office by his secretary and
distributed to numerous legislat
ors. While no signature was con
tained on the statement legislat
ors commonly ascribed the docu
ment to Mr. Holman.
The statements that "secretlve
ness" and a "reign of terror" ex
isted in the office of the board of
control were considered Holman's
latest attack on William Elnslg
whom he unsuccessfully sought to
have removed as secretary of the
board of control.
The pronouncement was consid
ered another development in the
open warfare between Meier and
Holman. The latter urged passage
of the warrant bill In the special
session and was supposedly slight
ed when the governor yesterday
vetoed the bfll and stated In his
message that "the bill was not aa
administration measure."
The unsigned communication
from the Holman office follows:
"Get copy of state payroll and
standardise before reducing sal
aries and wages by percentage
cuts. Cut salary of state purchas
ing agent.
"Inquire Into traveling and
transportation expenses of state
officials and employees.
"Study excellent methods of
C. H. Gram, labor commissioner,
for control of transportation costs
and purchase of automobiles.
"Remedy auditing methods of

to bo satisfied with checking ar
ithmetic and legality without ef
fectively testing the necessity and
reasons Dlen ess of claims.
"Analyse the state budget. It
was submitted to the legislature
hurriedly and without consulta
tion with department heads and
contains Inaccuracies.
"Eliminate budget director's de
partment and governor's secret
"Control expense of private au
tomobile use (points reached by

Today Bob Steele la "The
Man from Hell's Edges."
For the first time In the history
of motion pictures one great act
ress is seriously playing a role
that la strongly reminiscent of an
other great contemporary screen
The role played by Lily Damlta
in the First National picture "The
Match King," which opens at the
Elsinore theatre today is said to
be a thinly disguised Impersona
tion of a. very wen known Swedish-born
actress, for whom (
late financial baron Is popularl)
supposed to hare had a romantic,
but unrequited, attachment.
The ehlef character of the pic
ture, a part portrayed by Warren
William, Is Inspired by newspaper
headlines that revealed a start
ling fraud following the suicide of
a financial wizard. The character
Is drawn In vivid coloring by Eln
ar Thorvaldson in her novel 'and
from which the screen play was
adapted by Houston Branch and
Sidney Sutherland.
The play touches on a romantic
phase in high financing and mon
umental swindles that are almost
unbelievable unless it were based
upon the facts as shown in the
business life of the man who In
spired the story.
One of the most tense scenes
ever staged for a motion picture
marks the climax of "The Men
From Hell's Edges," which feat-
ares Bob Steele and is now show
ing at the Hollywood theatre.
The story builds up to a show
down between Bob Steele, in the
role of "Flash" Manning and Ju
lian Rlvero as "Lobo," both of.
whom are famous for gun-play.
With the exception of a few in
terior scenes, "Renegades of the
West," RKO-Radio Pictures' col
orful outdoor romance starring
Tom Eeene coming to the Grand
today, was photographed and re
corded in its natural locale.
"Renegades of the West," from
a story by Frank Richardson
Pearce, Is a sweeping romance of
Arizona and the southwest when
cattle rustling flourished. Sup
porting the youthful star, Tom
Keene, are Betty Furness, Roscoe
Ates, Rockcllffe Ftellowes, Carl
Miller, Jack Pennlck, Max Wag
ner, Roland Southern, James Ma
son and Josephine Ramous.
Today at the Capitol will open
the long awaited engagement of
Universale tense, electric drama
of one terrifying night, "The Old

as a masterpiece of frenzied ex
citement and gripping suspense,
