Thye Sees Trouble
For Butter Market
Washington, April 9 )
Senator Thye (R.-Minn.) said
today that repeal of federal tax
es on oleomargarine would de
stroy the butter market unless
congress at the same time pro
hibited interstate shipment of
the yellow product
Thye, in a statement prepared
for the senate finance commit
tee, spoke out against the house
passed oleomargarine bill.
That measure would repeal
the 63-year-old federal levies
on oleomargarine. However, it
would require the product sold
in public eating places to be
identified as such and to be serv
ed in a triangular form.
Thye asked the committee to
approve instead a substitute bill
which he and a group of other
dairy state senators arc sponsor
ing. It would scrap the taxes on
oleo, but ban interstate ship
ment of the yellow product. The
house turned down a similar
Neither the house bill nor
the substitute would affect the

Sign Rights of Way
For Silverfon Road
County Engineer Hedda Swart
reported to the county court
Saturday that first actual steps
toward securing right of way for
the new Silverton road location
between Stephen's corners, end
of the present federal fund im
provement, to McClaine street,
just inside the city limits of Sil
verton resulted in four owners
signing up for the sections of
right of way from their places
with no cost to the county ex
cept the installation of fencing.
There are about 15 or 16 owner
ships involved in the between
three and four miles of new
roadway involved.
The county court has a tenta
tive agreement with a group
from Silverton that the new
right of way inside the city from
McClaine street across to a
point near the depot will be se-
cured by interests in the city. No I
work has been done on this as
yet as descriptions have not yet
been received from the highway
department which will have ac
tual charge of building the road.
