Higher Education's Worries

Finance Uppermost
Sales tax Opponents More
Active Than Champions;
Arguments Bandied
The coming week, the health
of Mr. Host permitting, will
bring a showdown on the state-
house salary uncertainty which
has beclouded the days of ser
eral scores of state workers since
legislative adjournment. The se
cretary of state, be it known.
Is not well and has followed
week's Tacation at the coast by a
similar period of inactivity at
home. It was not certain yester
day thr. he could return to his
office early this coming week
Pending a board of control
meeting, salaries raised in the
last blennium have not been paid
nor have warrants gone to
number of departments wherein
are workers who seek to avoid
the 5 to 30 per cent cut Imposed
by the legislature. Such depart
ments include the attorney-general's
office, the state banking
department, some workers in the
secretary' of state's offices and
other phases of state government.
Holman Criticizes
Delay of Meeting
State Treasurer Holman criti
cised the governor last week for
not proceeding with the board of
control meeting without Hoss;
the executive thought it useless
as he and Holman are apart as
the poles on state policy and
Hoss holds the deciding vote.
The state treasurer would like to
line up Hoss to support him in a
straight 5 to 30 per cent cut of
all salaries as of December 31,
1930; that would whack Purchas
ing Agent Einzig down to less
than SO per cent of the wages he
received ' when he was hired by
Governor Meier. Holman may be
surprised next week to find that
the governor will side with him
for a straight salary reduction as
provided by law as the best
means of avoiding much political
criticism; were it not for the
ease of Einzig who Meier feels
would be underpaid at $3360,
such a salary schedule would
probably be agreed to.
The higher educational board
faces more problems this week,
but problems are nothing new
to this department of state gov
ernment: it has faced them each
meeting since 'the board began
functioning in 1929. Under the
budget for 1933-1934 it has
$559,000 less of unrestricted
funds to operate its six schools
for than It had the previous year
and that year money to spend
was 30 oer cent less than in

chairmanship of the boara, Mrs
"Walter M. Pierce being cast In
role of villainy in which she was
to rush across the continent from
Washington to lead a coup which
would unseat C. L. Starr as
board chairman. Mrs. Pierce this
week denied she would attend
any board meetings this month
and also denied she would take
any nart in securing a new chair
man. Governor Meier is not
Vnnvn to have committed his

Counties to
Go Off Cash
Basis, Word
PORTLAND, Ore., May 6.
(AP) Probably two-thirds or
more of the 36 counties ln Oregon
will be forced on a warrant basis
during 1933 by an unusually
heavy average tax delinquency,
and by collection by the state of
nearly $3,000,000 In property
taxes, If the present calculations
of the treasurers of the several
counties are borne out by develop
ments. That at least 24 of Oregon's
counties will be obliged to carry
on their business for the rest of
this year by warrants Instead of
cash ,1s indicated by a statewide
survey, completed by the Associa
ted Press, which obtained opin
ions from county treasurers.
It Is probable. If county treas
urers have estimated correctly,
that Oregon will experience a 50
per cent tax delinquency this year.
In some counties the delinquency
win be as great as 75 per cent.
None, it Is said, will collect more
than 75 per cent of the taxes
called for.
Naturally, with this situation
confronting them, officials of
many of the count! s are search -
ing for some way out. In one or
two cases a firm and unqualified
refusal to pay the state has been
expressed. Others hop that "in -

OAKLAND, Cal., May 6. (AP) Flames cut off the Key
Route Oakland pier in San Franciscobay tonight, con
sumed pier buildings with a red glare that could be seen for
miles and left the fate of at least 21 men in doubt.
All communications with the pier were severed, but it
was learned that two ferryboats were tied up in slips and
some 20 interurban passenger cars were on a sidetrack built
out into the water.
Officials of the Key System, Ltd., which operates the
combination electric train-ferry boat service, said the flames
were first reported at 10:09 p. m. At that -hour, they added,
there are usually no passengers at the 'end of the pier.
C. N. Anderson, superintendent - ;
of the system, and Howard Hack-
man, pier manager, were among
the 21 employes officials said
were usually on duty at the time
the fire started.
Fire and police boats from San
Francisco and Oakland streaked
through the water of the bay to
the scene but no word had been
sent back as to the fate of the
employes or progress in fighting
the fire.
Thousands of residents of San
Francisco, Oakland and other bay
cities watched the flames from
buildings and hilltops. Other
thousands lined the Oakland wa
ter front.
Sixty sailors and fifty marines
were sent in boats from Yerba
Buena Island naTal station In the
bay to aid firemen and police.
A heavily loaded ferry boat left
the ferry building in San Fran
cisco at 10 p. m.. for the Oakland
side but officials said it would
have been impossible for It to
have reached the pier before the
fire broke out.
The San Francisco fire depart
ment reported that shortly after
the fire broke out, a desperate
telephone call for help was re
ceived from employes at the pier.
