The sources said nothing had
changed at the Dutch royal Court
"despite the recent palace an
nouncement by the Queen and her
husband. Prince Bernhard, that
they had settled their differences.
Miss Hofmans was introduced to
Queen Juliana by Prince Bernhard
several years age in the hope that
the faith healer might bo able to
euro the near blindness of the
youngest Dutch princess, Maria
Christina, now 1 Bernhard later
lost faith in Miss Hofman's se

His objections to Miss Hofman's

the Queen ted to a series of crisis
touching the relationship between
the throne and the government.
Officials Worried ...
Now, informants say, official
quarters are worried more than
ever before over this relationship.
The faith healer still lives near
ths palace and still bas a following
at court. And the sources said
Juliana is still in contact with her,
through a go-betweens, although
it is doubtful that any actual
meetings have taken place be
tween the' two.
Informants said the royal crisis
Is back at full tilt during the pro

Prince Bernhard.
The troubles of the royal couple
are no longer a private family af

publicity to weigh heavily upon

you want, for your future, years
of economic insecurity, of fewer

handouts of big government?" the
former governor and Secretary of
Interior asked.
"Or, do you want better oppor
tunities, a bigger budget for you
and your family because there is
a smaller budget for government?
When government burgetf get big

said. . .,,
On tax matters, McKay aald he
and Ms oppoaon t, Democrat
Wayne L. Morse, differ sharply.
"For at the extreme of the left
wing, the big spending policies be
is urging during his campaign are
a guarantee of bigger and bigger
government with bigger and big
ger taxes. If there is any pressure
group to which he has not prom
ised a slice of the federal treas
ury, it is not of record. ,

history of the Unemployment Com

Although tabulation of the 25,000
reports has not yet been com
pleted, the figures from the com
mission Indicate covered payrolls
totalling more than, $380 million
during the second quarter of 1956.
The amount may exceed the for

shattered when reports art made

January when the 19SS Legislature

Another important factor is the
provision raising the taxable por

wage from $3,000 to $3,600. Aver
age tax rates now are close to
1.3S per cent comparing with a
low of 1.12 per cent during 1953.

slightly under the amount paid out
during the same period la 1959,

Future Contrasted
"As ! think about you, and your
problems, I cannot help but con
trast the future you face with the
future I faced when I was the
age of some of you. Government
entered our lives only casually,
compared to now. There was no
conscription into the armed forces
to separate our school from our
career and marriage.
"When I started my first jobs,
there was no income tax. When
a man made a dollar, he put it in
his pocket, it was his to spend
as he saw fit. Even when the
Democrats took over control of the
country in 1933, the income tax
was only 3 billion dollars.
"Then came the New Deal and
the Fair Deal. And when they left
office in 1953, federal taxes had
reached the staggering burden of
65 billion dollars. Well, the Re
publicans .came in In 1953 and
taxes stopped rising."
McKay, heard by 800 students
and faculty members ,,-in the WU
auditorium, shifted his criticism to
Morse who he recalled "was the
one who ridiculed the efforts of
President Eisenhower to halt the
war in Korea, who called his per
sonal tour of the battlrfront a
'grandstand play.' He was the one
who fought hardest to block thr
president's plans to avert war in
Formosa. He invited a surprise at
tack by predicting that the presi
dent's policies would lead to war."
Uadeolable Truth
Returning to his "big govern
ment" charges, McKay said "this
much can be said with undeniable
truth, they (the Democrats) have
never solved the problem of how
to get full employment except in
time of war." He said the Demo

record was ssved by World War
II," he said. "But by 1949 their
policies produced another sharp
economic depression ' and unem
ployment rose to approximately 4
million persons. The Koresn wsr
saved them again."
"Do you want your future In the
hands of the spenders of big gov
ernment with its big taxes, big
debt and big inflation?" McKay
asked. "I do not want that for my
children and my seven grandchil
dren. "The evil thing about big gov
ernment is evil itself. For big gov
ernment becomes lazy, callous,
snd slwsys it becomes corrupt.
You need only to look at the Tru

this fact.

Suits Eyed at
Hospital Meet
The possibility of losing their
immunity against malpractice
suits via legislation by the forth
coming Legislature was up for dis
cussion during closing hours Tues
day of the Oregon Association of
Hospitals convention in Salem.
James G. Swindells of Portland,
attorney for the Association, re
ported on moves afoot to render
Oregon's hospitals open to mal
practice suits. Under their elee
mosynary status now, hospitals
are immune against such suits in
the courts.
In connection with this matter
was the discussion Tuesday after
noon of hospitals increasing their
insurance to cover professional
liability. Fire and safety insurance
matters also were talked.
Meanwhile the auxiliary groups
toured Salem Memorial Hospital
and conducted a workshop there.
Following that they attended a
tea, sponsored by the Salem Me
morial Auxiliary unit.
A panel on hospital finances and
the role of the auxiliary program
was held Tuesday morning with
more than 100 auxiliary members
in attendance.
The three day convention ended

an average of
of Oregon forest
In the past ten years, Southern Pacific has
moved 1,810,708 carloads of forest products
out of Oregon. From 132,802 in 1946, the an
nual figure climbed to 222,781 in 1955 an
average of 610 carloads a day.
It takes a lot of freight cars to do this job
and jve have done our best to provide them.
Since World War II we have acquired or
ordered 56,854 freight cars, including 34,850,
boxcars, at a cost of $356,000,000. In 1955
alone, S. P. committed roughly three and sl
half times the company's net income to pur
chase of 15,475 new cars-a $183,000,000 order.
The Oregon forest products industry and
Southern Pacific freight service are going
forward hand in hand. We believe the rec
ord shows our earnest desire to meet and
anticipate shippers' requirements in Oregon
and throughout the territory we serve.
