1 v ' f
On Wages Legal, Says
Judge In State Ruling
By Eldon Barrett
(United I'reu Surf Correflpomlent)
Salem, Ore., Nov. 24 IB Valid
ity of the 1947 legislative acts in
creasing personal income taxes
and creating a one per cent with
holding tax on wages was upheld
today in Marion county circuit
court, but the decision was ex
pected to be appealed to the state
ifipveme court.
Operation of the two acts auto
matically went into effect when
the three per cent retail sales tax
measure was defeated at the polls
Oct. 7.
The Oregon Federation of La
bor brought the suit against the
state tax commission asking that
the two acts be declared unconsti
tutional on grounds that their ef
fectiveness was dependent upon
the outcome of the sales tax vote,
and their enactment was under a
procedure to prevent a referen
dum against the two measures.
Judge George R. Duncan in his
decision held that neither of the
acts was dependent for its enact
ment upon the sales tax because
both became laws July 5, 90 days
after adjournment of the legisla
ture and "there was nothing in
the acts, expressed or implied" to
prevent a referendum.
"Under the method used, the
legislature in an alternative form
merely anticipated the situation
as it would be after the vote on
the sales tax act was known,"
Judge Duncan held. The result is
the same "as if it (the legislature)
had waited until after the vote
on the sales tax was known, and
then lowered the personal exemp
tion and provided for a withhold
ing of the tax."
Utile Well Settled
"The rule is well settled in Ore
gon," the decision added, "that
the ' legislature may enaot -any
legislation -not expressly or im
pliedly prohibited by the consti
tution, and when an act is within
this rule the court may not ques
tion the method used or the man
. ner or time of operation."
James T. Marr, secretary of the
labor organization, who Instigated
the action, had said previously
that the decision would be appeal
ed to the high court if the acts
were upheld. The defendants said
they would appeal if they lost the
case.
Under the income tax act, taxes
will be increased by a lowering
of exemptions. Had the sales tax
measure passed, income taxes
would have been lowered by in
creasing exemptions. The with
holding tax is applicable on 1947
earnings and applies to those who
earn more than $50 a month.

Father Hyland
To Leave Bend
An earlier unconfirmed report
that Father Edmund Hyland, pas
tor of St. Francis Catholic church
in Bend for the past seven years,
was to be assigned as pastor of
the Catholic parish at Roscburg
was verified here yesterday. The
Roseburg parish has been offi
cially declared vacant for the past
several weeks. Reluctance of
church officials to withdraw Fa
ther Hyland from his work in
Bend was responsible for the late
decision of his transfer to Rose
burg, where he already has had
several years of outstanding suc
cess. Father Hyland, who came here
from Roseburg In 1940 after serv
ing there for three years, will re
sume his pastorage in the rapidly

ish by Father William Coughlan,

stationed in Bend as assistant
pastor. In addition to his parish
work Father Coughlan has been
active in civic affairs. A native
of Ireland, Father Coughlan last
January returned to his home
land for a brief visit with friends
and relatives.
Father Conleth Kllllan remains
as assistant pastor of the Bend
parish.
U.S.O. Moderator
' During his seven years of serv
ice In Bend, Father Hyland has

Rome, Nov. 24 (ll'i The com

of riot and strife today with a
demand that the government
hand over control of industry to
"workers."
Lugl Longo, Italy's No. 2 com
munist and cominform delegate,
said, "if the government will not
do it, the people will." Officials
said the purpose of the old and
new communist campaigns was
the same: to overthrow Premier
Alcide de Gasperi's government.
The new campaign the com
munists called it a "new thrust"
apparently was hastily drawn
up when the riots that began 20
days ago failed to shake the De
Gasperi government or make it
lose its head.
