Entered at the Post Office at Athena, Oregon, as Second-Class Mail Matter
Flaws ' In Governor's Pro
posed Method Noted By
the Commission.
Salem. With business and indus
trial depression staring the country
rin the face, and the state groaning
under its burden of taxes, Governor
Norblad's plan of a $20,000,000 road
bond, issue to aid in relief of present
unemployment, was turned down, by
the state highway commission at
conference Tuesday afternoon which
had bee called by the governor.
Not that the commission was out
of sympathy with the governor's con
cern over the unemployment situa
tion, but, as explained, by Chairman
Van Duzer, the proposal was
practical from several angles.
To begin with, Van Duzer pointed
out, it would require so much time to
get any sizable program under way,
dispose of the bonds,-advertise the
contracts and let the bids, that the
winter, season would be well on its
way before any work could be started
In the second place, under modern
methods of. ..highway , construction,
even the most ambitious road pro
gram conceivable would not give em
ployment to a sufficient number of
men to make any 'appreciable differ
ence in the general employment situ
ation. .
The commission, however, gave the
governor its assurance that it would
do everything within its power to give
employment to as many men through
out the winter as practical.
This will be done by ferreting put
small road jobs, grading jobs in par
ticular, which can be carried out
through the winter , months and in
which man power figures more largely
than machine power and by carrying
on such work as can be prosecuted at
this time of the year without too
great ah economic waste of funds.
"The commission has anticipated
this unemployment situation to some
extent," Van Duzer said. "With this
situation in view we have speeded up
our road program to more than dou
ble that of last year.
"If we should even consider the let
ting of as much as $20,000,000 in new
highway contracts at this time the
number of men to which we could
give employment this winter would be
very small.
"There is, however, a certain type of
work which could be done this winter,
such as minor grading jobs and road
changes which would give employ
ment to. some men and the commis
sion will see that this work is gotten
under way wherever it is possible."
It was shown by members of the
highway commission that in 1928 up
to August 11, highway contracts
awarded aggregated only $1,125,998.
In 1929 for the same period these
contracts amounted to $2,819,627, and
this year to date the commission has
let contracts for a total of $5,110,615
double that of last year and more
than four times that of two years ago.
In order to do this it was shown
that the commission has obligated its
next year's funds to a great extent. ,
The objection of the highway com
mission to the issuance of new bonds
at this time did not extend to its pro
gram, already announced, covering
the issuance of $1,500,000 in new
bonds each year for the next, three
years to meet additional federal aid
money. :i . .' '
With a view to providing additional
winter work on public highways, an
effort will be made to have the fed
eral government switch its aid on the
Bend-Burns highway to the ' Burns
Ontario section on which work cart
be carried out this winter.
Deer Season Will Open
To Hunters September 15
The deer hunting season will open
on schedule, September 15, State
Forester Lynn P. Cronemiller said
Wednesday. Governor Norblad was
not in Salem, but Cronemiller said
he was able to speak authoritatively.
The state forester said that the fire
hazard is. now entirely eliminated
with no large fires burning and with
the atmosphere so clear that lookouts
can see long distances. The rain,
Cronemiller said, is general through
out the state.

Railroads Ask Commis
sion To Reconsider: West
ern Carriers File Petition
Apparently there is more back of
the railroad s claim that more time
was needed to arrange rate schedules
to conform with the reduction ordered
by the interstate commerce commis
sion, for it now transpires that the
commission has been asked to recon
sider its order. , .
A Washington dispatch says that a
petition asking the commission to re
consider its recent decision granting a
general reduction in freight rates on
grain and grain products in the west
and for export was filed .Wednesday
by railroads.
The petition, filed by all western
carriers, asserted that the decision re
quired rates which would substantial
ly reduce revenue "in the face of
general rate level which at present is
and for years past has been insuf
ficient to provide a fair return."
It added the decision was handed
down so long after the record in the
case was completed that testimony re
ceived by the commission no longer
applied. The case was argued before
the commission early last summer and
the decision came last July 1.
The application aiso cnarged the
reduced rates would deprive the rail
roads of their property without due
process of law in violation of the
fifth amendment to the constitution,
The rates are to become effective
January 1. . ' (
The investigation into gram rates
was undertaken by the commission
under the provision of the Hoch
Smith resolution requiring the lowest
possible rates on agricultural pro
ducts consistent with service rendered
by the carriers. In its decision, how
ever, the commission said it had found
the reduced rates were needed entire
ly aside from the Hoch-Smith reso
ration. . "; . "' '." ., " ' ,
Indians Ask That Celilo
Fishing Rights be Observed
Salem. Protection of Indians,
whose tribes for centuries have fished
in the Columbia river near Celilo and
Three-mile rapids east of The Dalles,
against encroachment of white fish
ermen was urged in a letter received
at the "executive r department here
from Andrew Barnhart of The Dalles
"It has been the practice of the
state of Oregon to issue commercial
licenses for this same territory, vir
tually usurping the grounds that have
for centuries been used by our peo
ple," read Barnhart's letter. "It is
mpossible for us to secure rights,
when our neighbors, the white citi
zens, are able to procure all the
rights to adjacent lands where nets
can be set In view of our treaty
rights with the United States govern
ment, is this not a violation of such
treaty to permit the white people to
garner all of these desirable places?
Is it not discriminatory against us?"
"Even though the Indian procures a
license he is forced to retire before
the white man who constantly en
croaches further upon what little re
mains to the Indians under the treaty
riehts. There seems to be no person
sufficiently interested to give us jus
tice'' ' ..
"The question in my mind is wheth
er the state of Oregon has authority
to issue a license to the white man
when the issuing of such licenses in
terferes .with the existing Indian
treaty governing tribal fishing rights
and grounds." t vi
Bank Thugs Flee When
Cashier Opens Gun Fire
Medford. A fusillade of pistol
shots and a wild pursuit after
bank bandits through the center of
town featured an attempt to rob the
bank at Central Point, five miles
north of here, late Tuseday.
One of the bandits remained at the
wheel of a motor car while his com
panion ordered v bank employes to
stick 'em up ' and proceeded to stuff
money into his shirt. The arrival of
customers, however, frightened the
robber and he fled into the car.
L. A. Tollefson, cashier, fired sev
eral shots at the fleeing bandits, but
it is believed none of the bullets took
effect. Sheriffs officers were combing
the countryside for the men.

University of Oregon. Seventeen
lettermen, including six veterans with
two years of service in the Pacific
Coast conference, will report to Or,
C. W. Spears next Monday as he
starts his first football campaign at
Oregon. Considering the number of

forty candidates seeking positions on
the varsity.
The eyes of the coast sports world
next week will be particularly direct
ed toward Eugene and Seattle, where
two newcomers to the West, Spears
from Minnesota, and Jimmy Phelan
from Purdue, will begin conditioning
grid teams for their initial assaults
upon conference rivals. Doc Spears,
playing Pacific University here five
days after the first day of preliminary
work, will quickly bring his eleven
under observance. After another few
days of practice the Webfoots will
meet Willamette on Hayward field in
a night game, September 26, and then
entrain for Chicago to meet Drake in
the country's first intersectional bat
tle for the season, October 3.
The six veterans who will play their
last, season for Oregon are Austin
Colbert and Jerry Lillie, guards;
George Christinson and Marion Hall,
tackles; Johnny Kitzmiller, captain
and halfback and John Donahue,
quarterback. With the exception of
Hall, all of these men were regulars
on last year's team. ' Colbert, who
