BUTTER IUIAKEH5 TRY
Gehlhar Denounces Private
Interests; Extra 2c
Sixty organized private butter
manufacturers, whom Max Geh
lhar, state director ot agriculture,
accused of attempting- to "chisel"
a two cent per pound additional
spread for their product, were de
nounced as unfair and unreason
able in a lengthy statement is
sued by Gehlhar Saturday.
Gehlhar declared that na had
refused to grant these manufac
turers a two cent per pound ad
"Such a spread would amount
td more than $250,000 a year,"
Gehlhar declared, "and would
delve further into the farmer's
dollar." Gehlhar said the request
for the additional two cents -per
pound pound made to H. A. Wal
lace, secretary of agriculture, was
"The farmers cannot become
more prosperous through this
type of farm relief which in
creases the spread between the
producer and consumer," Gehlhar
continued. "I refused point blank
to give the private butter inter
ests in Oregon a quarter of
million dollars a year of the other
fellow's money despite that I was
clothed with authority to do so,
I make this statement in the
face of an open threat that
would lose my Job unless I sign
ed on the dotted line.
"To compel signature of this
code without modification an or
ganized group of private butter
interests, one of whom is flying
the cooperative flag, have launch
ed a most insidious lobby to co
erce mo into selling out the dairy
men of Oregon. I have taken my
stand with the farmers of Ore
gon who are fighting with their
backs to the wall to prevent any
further spread In the middle
men's share of the consumer's
dollar. The farmer is now recelv

A plea to Salem citixens to

Wednesday night at the chamber
of commerce by the Salem Gen
eral hospital board of directors
was issued yesterday by W. H.
Dancy, board president. The pur
pose of the meeting is to receive
suggestions as to how 15000 may
be raised to pay overdue inter
est on the hospital's bonds and
thereby avert threatened fore
closure by the bondholders.
"We have tried every possible
way we can think of to try and
meet the situation but so far we
haven't had any luck at all," Mr.
Dancy explained. "I'm very an
xious to have the public at large
at this meeting because, as all
know, the Salem General hospi
tal belongs to the citizenry. I
feel it is now their duty to rally
forward to save the institution.
