PORTLAND, Jan.- tc () T
The itate liquor ; administration
today commenced formulating
plans for actually putting tne
state Into the liquor busines, but
announced it would move v cau
tiously until the sUte supreme
court render'ed tts decision on con
ratltuUosality of -the iaw.
4- .The (uestlon of getting up Us
xniin-office la Salem may come
up when the administration of
ficers meet with the liquor com
mission probably late this
week, it was indicated. It was not
"believed the Salem offices would
be established until next week.
Commission Attorney George
Neuner may look Into the Salem
office situation when there to
morrow in connection with the
Klamath Falls liquor suit coming
up in the Marion county circuit
court. Some of the commissioners
may he there too, it was Indicated.
However, the main supply of
fice of the administration will be
In Portland, It was stated. Rec
ords and other information will be
kept at Salem;
The administration was consid
ering whether to set up a skeleton
system of liquor stores through
out the state or to start in one
"town or county and make a full
installation there before moving
on to the next town or eouny.
There was some indication the
latter course would be followed.
Under that plan Portland would
have the first store, set up ela
borately and made appealing, at
tractive and complete. Wide vari
ety of liquors would be stocked
in the initial stores.
After Multnomalu county had
been cared for, the administration
would establish stores in Salem,
Eugene and other large towns or
counties. Income of the first
stores would be .studied In rela
tion to the populations served, to
determine how many state stores
would be warranted.
The state may establish Its own
stores directly, deputize agents to
handle liquor in certain towns,
or combine the two methods in
any one town where advantage
ous. Administrator Sammis said.
Expectations were that consum
ers' cards will be drafted in the
next day or so and be ready for
the printer soon. The cards will
sell for 1- each. A person must
have a card to make purchases
from the state bottle houses.
Work Is now being done, too,
on devising rules and regulations
for the conduct of the booze busi
ness, using as a basis the Infor
mation brought back from British
Columbia by Arch J. Tourtellotte,
special investigator, who Is now
in chrge of installing the liquor
accounting system."
About 2000 applications for the
150 jobs have already been re
ceived at temporary headquarters
here, Sammis. said. ,

ruled as a boy on the dragon

false" by a foreign office spokes

the Intrigues' civil wars, and sor

To Shed Tax Yoke
DALLAS. Jan. 9 (Special)
A group of Polk county farmers
have Joined in sponsoring a county-wide
meeting of farmers in
support of the proposed sales tax.
The meeting is scheduled for Sat
urday, January 13, at 1:30 p.m.,
in the court house here. The pur
pose of the meeting is to call to
gether as many farmers as pos
sible who favor the sales tax, and
to organize a county body to put
this matter before the people.
A statement issued by the
farmers who organized the group
"This is the most important
matter to come before the farmer
for years. It offers the real re
lief we farmers have been look
ing foi in the matter of taxes.
It will shift a part of the heavy
burden of taxes from our farms
and homes to others who are able
and should carry part of the load.
It looks like it is now time for
the farmer to take action in this
or forever remain passive in the
matter of taxes. Do not get the
wrong Impression of the sales tax
through prejudice and misrepre
tatlon. So, 'Come you good farm
ers of Polk, help rid yourself of
the present tax yoke'."

"I have greatly enjoyed tbe

"I have telegraphed Mr. Hop
kins, federal civil works adminis
trator, of my actios in order that
he may make necessary arrange
ments for continuance of the civil
works administration in Oregon."
Governor Meier's only comment
"This is a great shock to me.
I have nothing to say."
At a late hour Wilcox could not
be reached for a statement con
cerning an expression here that
he resigned for political reasons.
The report was to the effect that

Validation of Minnesota's mort

farm and home Indebtedness was
expressed today by farm credit
administration and borne owners
loan corporation officials.
The court's decision upheld
state legislation extending the
time for. redemption of property
foreclosed for non-payment of
mortgage indebtedness, and con
taining other provisions to ease
the debtors' burden.
Officials said today almost 20
states bad enacted legislation
which followed similar lines and
that many legislatures meeting
this year probably would pass
such laws now that the Minnesota
statute had been , declared consti
tutional. Some laws already pass
ed have been held constitutional
by state courts.
One of the principal benefits to
the work of the borne- loan and
farm credit administrations, of
ficials said, was that an extension
of the time for redemption would
allow in many instances a suffi
cient period for a federal loan
on the property or a scaling down
of the Indebtedness if its present
value is insufficient to cover the
amount due.
