Little Encouragement
For Farm Legislation
McNary-Haugen Farm Bill
Faces Sidetrack Again
5 In Congress. ; ;
The McNary-Haugen farm relief
bill, hailed by its sponsors as Amer
ican agriculture's panacea, will be
introduced again in both houses of
congress early in the short session.
Opinion varies as to the bill's pros
pects, among leading senators and
congressmen. While cne doubts
whether it will come out of commit
tee, another insists that it will be
pushed in this 'session to 'the bitter
end. - ' .
Other pet measures for relief have
given away before it, however, and
the McNary-Haugen bill remains the
only drastic piece of such legislation
which receives serious consideration.
"It attempts to segregate -the. sur
plus of all basica"gr3cultural;oin7
modities," McNary explained. "It
would withhold the surplus froniaje
or sell it in foreign countries at the
best available prices', charging the
loss to all producers of that product.
"By removal of that surplus, the
supply would adjust itself to the de
mand and the farmer would get the
full benefit of the tariff. This would
increase the domestic price to the full
extent of the tariff rate, which on
wheat is 42 cents a bushel.
"Instead of two boards, as I pre
viously proposed, I now propose one
board of twelve members to be ap
pointed by the president from the
twelve federal land bank districts.
The $250,000,000 to be appropriated
would not only be used by the board
to segregate the surplus but Would!
be loaned to co-operative organiza
tions cn adequate security.
"The government's $250,000,000
would be protected from loss by
means of an equalization fee to be
collected from the farmer when he
sells his product and forwarded to
the treasury.
"Taking wheat as an example, we
produce 800,000,000 bushels a year,
of which 650,000,000 is for domestic
consumption. The remaining 150,
000,000 is for export.
"When we don't segregate it, the
surplus makes the price for the whole
crop. The farmer . gets the 'world
price' and does not benefit by the tar
iff. . ' : , " 'V v.
"If the farmer . gains the tariff
rate 42 cents on s each "bushel of
Wheat, the equalization fee he wil!
pay to make up the loss incurred by
sale cf the surplus below domest'c
prices would amount to about six
cents a bushel.
"Probably with certain modifica
tions, I will introduce this bill early
in the session. We have the west,
the middle . west and the southwest
vith s and now we need some south
ern votes which many people think
we will get."

Mayor Taylor and Hon. T. J. Kirk-
have done remarkably well soliciting
subscriptions toward Umatilla coun

road fund. Athena, "the granary of
the Inland Empire," comes to the
front with the first subscription to
be taken in Umatilla county, between

Gallagher springs has passed into

The deplorable and nefarious cigar
ette habit has gained a hold to such
an extent on a certain number of
boys attending the ' Athena public
school that they become o bold in
satisfying the desire for tobacco that
the practice ' was brought ,. id the at
tention of Principal Watts.

Selling Christmas Seals
Mrs. H. I. Watts has charge of
the annual Christmas seals sale? in
Athena, and with the assistance of
other ladies in the city, solicitations
of sales are being made. The fact
that a new state hospital, for the
treatment of tuberculosis patients is
to be located soon in Eastern Ore
gon, has proven to be an incentive in
the promotion of seal sales in this
part of the state. Reports - from
state headquarters are to the effect
that sales quotas are being made
. without difficulty.
