No payment of money has as yet
. been made by the secretary of state's
office under the provisions of the sol
iters educational aid bill, nor will any
. payment be made -before January 1,
1920 according to a statement prepared
. by Sam A. Kozer, deputy secretary of
state, today. Funds for the adminis
tration of this act are to be provided
by taxation and will not be available
cntil that date, according to the state
ment which follows:
In order to clear up any misunder
standing that may exist in the minds of
any of the soldiers, sailors or marines
who are attending such institutions,
the secretary of state's office wishes
to state that the law providing for
. educational aid to the extent of $25
per month, appropriates annually the
equivalent of .2 of a mill oir"the tax
able property of the state. When this
law went into effect at the close of the
special election June 3, 1919, the state
tax commission had prior thereto in
December, 1918, made the annual tax
levy for the year 1919, consequently no
amount could be Included in the tax
levy for that year to pay the claims
for aid furnished by the state. The
annual levy of taxes for the year 1920
will be made by the state tax commis
sion ' in December, 1919, and the
amount which it is authorized to in-
, dude In such levy under the financial
educational aid law will become avail
able and credited as an appropriation
January 1, 1920.
When the .educational Institutions
with which applications have been
filed were furnished vouchers and
' statement forms for rendering their
monthly statements of aid furnished to
the several soldiers, sailors and ma
rines in attendance thereat, the execu
tive heads of such institutions were
. advised on the conditions of the ap
proprlatlon and the time when tne
moneys appropriated by , the state-
would be available, and It was sug
gested by them that in view of the
fact that the state could not pay these
claims before January 1, 1920, (though
it would pay all claims of soldiers, sail
ers and marines in atendance at their
Institutions from January 4, 1919, who
had made applicaion for the aid),
that it would very likely be necessary
for them to make some local finan
cial arrangements in order to carry
them over until January 1, 1920, when
their claims would be paid by the sec
retary of state as any other claims
against the state. That is the condi
tion which exists with respect to a!)
the Institutions of the state wits' which
applications to pursue courses of study
therein have been filed by honorably
discharged soldiers, sailors and ma
rines. This matter was also considered by
the executive heads of the larger insti
tutions at a conference in Salem in
July and they generally understand
the condtllons and that it would .be
necessary for them to arrange to make
these advances to the students until
the state moneys could be paid. It has
been suggested in some instances that
the state could issue certificates of evi
dence of allowance of claims, but they
cannot be issued by the secretary of
state except upon the authorization of a
deficiency by the emergency board. In
ti.e case in point, no defiency exists.
Provision has been made by the legis
lature fo- the pavnent of the claims
but the payment hereof has bien de
ferred by reason of a condition which
existed at the tirie the law went
ettoct and tou.a l-o in no manner reir..
edled excei-t hrouii some special leg
islative enactment.

Surely r:king th;i statement in or;l?r
to clear up anv misunderstanding
which nray now exist with reganS to
the time when theVate moneys he
come available, so that the executive
heads of ' institutions and ex-servlcb
men who may be in attendance, may
know the exact conditions and the sea
son for their failure to receive the
money which the state has provided
for them, before January 1, 1920, in
the event the institutions which the ex-
service men may be attending are un
able to make local financial arrange
ments to advance the money to them
until the first of the year.

In the event the proposed constitu
tional amendment initiated by J. F.
Albright of Oregon City should be ap
proved by the voters of the state at
the general election in 1920, any in
terest rate above five percent charg
ed upon any ; transaction in Oregon
would be usury, according to an opin
ion prepared today by Tttorney Gen
eral Brown at the request of Will H.
Bennett, state superintendent of banks
The proposed amendment fixes the
rata- of .. interest at four percent per
annum upon all money after the sanie
becomes due, but upon contracts, in
terest at the rate of five per cent per
annum and no more may be charged
b the express agreement of the parties.
' According to the opinion of the at
torney general this would have no ef
fect whatever upon contracts execut
ed prior to the going into effect of
the proposed amendment The pro
posed amendment however would re
duce the present rate of interest in
ordinary commercial transactions,
would forbid the execution of notes
drawing interest of more than five
per. cent per annum, would limit the
interest charge upon all moneys after
the same becomes . due to four per
cent, and would fix four per cent as
the rate of interest to be collected in
the event a person agreed to pay in
terest but no rate was specified and
would require that any brokerage or
commission charges upon any trans
action should be included in the five
per, cent maximum interest rate. The
proposed amendment would not, how
ever, prohibit the ordinary bank cus
tom of discounting or rediscounting
commercial paper by deducting the
interest In advance, the opinion holds.
No new licenses could be issued to per
sons under the act which would per
mit the charging ot more than the
amount provided in the amendment.
the attorney general states but de
clares that it is sot now necessary to
decide as to whether the act would
be deemed an impairment of existing
license rights to charge more than the
specified rates. -

Salem Woolen Mills Sfore
Preparation of the notices of the
forthcoming primary election which
are to be Bent to the various county
clerks over the state, was begun by
by Sam A. Kozer, deputy secretary of
state today. In conformity with the
advise contained in the opinion pre
pared by Attorney General Brown and
in lines with the declaration made by
Secretary of State Olcott based upon
that opinion the office of governor
will be omitted from these notices.
This early action In this matter is
taken in order to permit ample time
for testing the legality of the omis
sion should "any citizen or voter" de
sire to Institute mandamus proceed
ings to compel the secretary of state
to include the office of governor in
his certification to the county clerks.
The law provides that the certifica
tion shall be made not later than 45
days prior to the date of the election
but no other time limitation is provided.
