that the grass carelessness and
negligence of the defendant caus
ed the mishap. He asserts his left

Criticism of present state off!
cials was blended with a concise
outline of major issues before the
forthcoming legislative session by
Representative Carle Abrama of
this county in an address Friday
noon to the Salem ; Advertising
club at the Gray Belle. . ' -
-Abrama took Utilities Commis
sioner Thomas to task for "set
ting aside the law" and proceed
ing to give truck men special fa
vors for the next-60 days. Abrams
at the same time said he thought
existing truck legislation should
be modified, but not by the exec
The speaker said he hoped the
recall of Governor Julius L. Meier
would not prove successful be
cause he thought such action
would put a national stain -on the
name of Oregon. He said the for
ces against Meier were strong ana
indicated the turmoil in the board
of control and the governor's
loose control of affairs would
probably lead to his ouster were
a recall put to vote.
Abrams quoted Rufus C. Hol
man, state treasurer, as stating
that Oregon's finances were in
splendid shape and declared Hol
man said the deficit would be
wiped out by January 1, 1935 if
not six months sooner. Abrams
said he felt some state relief im
perative this winter but he set
$5,000,000 as a maximum amount
to be furnished. He indicated he
favored either the so-called "Mar
ion county" plan of an income
tax-liquor tax method of raising
the moneys or else the Issuance of
state bonds. "It is a mistake for
us to pay up all our debts in bad
times and then to get into debt
in good times," he averred.
The speaker indicated some
thing must be done for distressed
school children and indicated that
probably $1,000,000 would have
to be advanced as a temporary
loan to needy districts. Tax flelin
quency and how to meet it pro
vides a great problem to the leg
islature, Abrams indicated. , He
quoted Holman as stating that the
drafting of private property was
as necessary In hard times as the
drafting of men for "cannon fod
der" was In war times.
Representative Abrams de
clared the legislature through the
county courts or through the
county political organizations,
should fill the existing six vacan
cies in the state legislature. He
said he was strongly opposed to
such vacancies being filled by the
governor. He said the special ses-
sio was imperataive but indicat
ed it should have been called be
fore November 20.
On the matter of liquor control,
the Marion county representative
said his mind was not fully made
up. He declared there were points
in favor of a licensing system as
well as a system of state opera
tion of hard liquor dispensaries.
The idea of the state being direct
ly in the liquor business, however,
Abrams said was repulsive to him
although he indicated such a plan
might be adopted.

So Alleges General White
When Bid of 5.1 25 Best
That world war .veterans' state
aid commission securities have
been deliberately misrepresented
in the bond market for the pur
pose of forcing a high Interest
yield, was charged at ; Friday's
meeting of the commission by
Major General White.
1 The criticism followed the sale
ot $ 100,000 of the commission's
bonds to 8tone, Webster and Blod
gett of Chicago; on the basis to
yield the purchaser 6 per cent.
No Oregon bids were received.
fV "There has been a vicious and
deliberate propaganda In the mar
ket against these Oregon securi
ties for the sole purpose ot forc
ing an extortionate Inter eat
yield.! White aald. "At our last
meeting,, bids were made as high
as 5:80 and at that time, we made
it plain that all such bids would
be rejected. The state's credit is
basically sound and these securi
ties are intrinslcly as sound an
investment as government obliga
"I feel that an effort has been
make by manipulation and misrep
resentation to depress these se
curities, discourage investment,
or eliminate competitive bidding
and compel us to pay up as high
as 6 per cent, which we're not
going to do. If I didn't have the
facts about this matter I wouldn't
make the statement. When a Chi
cago firm gave us a bid of 5.125
on a block of $200,000 of these
state bonds recently, that firm
was notified by competitors that
it should have held out for a high
er yield. The report waa even put
out and widely circulated tnat me
representative of the Chicago firm
had been discharged by his com
pany for making such a bid. As a
matter of fact a bid of 5.125 is
excessive considering the basic
value of Oregon securities, which
should command a bid of par for
the 4.25 coupons or even less.
We have no reason for en
thusiasm over the bid today of
5.125. I think It is excessive. But
it Is the best we can hope under
the circumstances and it need
be no secret that if it had been
any higher the bids would have
been thrown out,
The veteran's commission. It

some time over reports and ru
