Upon invitation of Chairman Boise,;
County Assessor Ben F. West, spoke!
pointedly regarding a statement cred- j
ited to Prof. W. J. Kerr of O. A. C.,'
that assessments in the state of Ore-1
gon were only 30 per cent of the war-'
ranted valuation. Assessni- 't
ed that there was a general tendency!
upon ttie part of the public utility1
concerns and others to iim,n,i !
sessnient valuations upon a basis of
inflated values. Mr. West asserted
that this would ruin the farmer or
city property owner. He placed upon!
the State Tax Commission the blame I
for increased taxation in Marion and
other counties. As a case in point he
gave the instance of a telephone con-j
corn in southern Oregon upon which
the Public Service Commission had'
placed a valuation of only $60,000'
for assessment pui'Doses. Aseanri
West alo pointed out th.if the innn.

Move Begun to
Of Feed Law Here
Portland, "Or., Mar. 20. Steps are
being taken to provide Oregon with a
new feed law that will give It an
equal standing with other states, ac
cording to J. D. Mickle, state dairy
and food commissioner, who has ap
pointed a committee to draw up a
workable measure that will be pre
sented to the next session of the leg
islature. Every state in the union, with four
or five exceptions, Oregon being one,
has what is known as the uniform
feed law, which protects both the
consumer and the manufacturer, Mr.
Mickle said today. The law requires
a guaranteed analysis to be printed
on every package, naming each ar
ticle contained in the feed, which
should be sufficient to protect the
purchaser. Inspection Is provided for
the enforcement of the law, and In
drawing up the Oregon measure it
is proposed to make the Industry It
self bear the expense and not put the
cost on the general taxpayer.
