THE PRESS, ATHENA, OREGON, SEPTEMBER 26, 1930
IS GIVE! BRIEFLY
It is Essentially the One On
Which the Late Senator
Joseph Stood. '
' Portland. The platform of Julius
L. Meier, independent candidate for
governor, is essentially that on which
the Republican party nominee; "the
late Senator George W. Joseph, ran
successfully in the primary. Among
the issues for which Mr. Joseph
fought and for which Mr.' Meier now
carries on is-the development of fed'
eral, state or municipal water power
plants to the end that cheap power
may be made available in abundance
for domestic use as well as industries.
This platform insists on home rule in
the regulation of public utility, cor
porations. r ,; .- "--;.-;Vt.i.,
;. Mr. Meier is opposed to 4 the arbi
trary use of the injunction in. labor
disputes. He would do everything
possibleto effect a rearrangement of
the state economic affairs to the end
that industry , may prosper and a
repetition . of , our present deplorable
unemployment situation may be less
liable to occur. - '-- J
Divorcement of fish and game af
fairs from the realm of party polit
ical expediency, that the propaga
tion and protection of fish and game
may be effected economically and ef
ficiently, is advocated in ' this plat
form, which Mr. Meier upholds. En
forcement of fish and game laws is,
of course, supported, t - ; - ; .
Mr; Meier stands four square on the
Joseph platform. He is for uphold
ing the Hoover law-enforcement pro
gram and promises to appoint to of
fice only men who respect and are
qualified to enforce law.
It is hardly necessary to say that
Mr. Meier is a strong supporter- of
the state highway program and ad
vocates early completion of the Roose
velt Highway as he has been for years
actively behind road projects from the
time prior to establishment of the
present fine system. He was presi
dent Of the Columbia TrWo,. c

Mr. Meier stands for the direct pri-
marv and nnnnla
favors an adequate protective tariff

Northwest Air Rates
Reduced To Rail Basis
Varney Air Line officials have plac
ed a rail plus pullman fare rate on
the majority of the system operated
by the company. The low rates were
effective Monday, September 22, 1930,
and will remain reduced for a period
of 31 days. The temporary tariff is
effective between the following towns:
Portland, Pasco, Boise, to Salt Lake
City, and also between Spokane to
Pasco. The' Spokane-Pasco service
connects with the main line that runs
on thru to Salt Lake City. The rate
is considered as purely educational
and its sole aim is to educate as many
people as possible during the allotted
time to the many advantages of
"travel by air."
The Varney Air Lines operates Boe
ing built passenger equipment with
radio installed. The Varney airways
follow the Department of Commerce
constructed and maintained air routes
to the east. Passengers will be car
ried along with the mail with regu
lar air mail pilots at the controls.
, Polk County Irrigation ,
Keen interest in crops irrigation
has developed in Polk county recently,
according to J, B. Beck, county agent.
Of the 1972 acres in the county for
which permits to irrigate have been
issued, 600 are on the farm of Louis
Lachmund of Independence, who uses
most of the water for hops. On the
Zielesch farm at Parker 120 acres are
to be irrigated for pasture and al
falfa, while many other farmers are
planning to irrigate small fruits and
other crops. . ( . t r ' . , '
Garner Stands Back of
Oregon State College. The hard-
boiled attitude favored, by some edu
cators - of adopting a "take-it-or-
leave-it plan with college students
will not be countenanced at Oregon
State college, according to the regular
fall address to the faculty made by
President W. J. Kerr. He told the
teaching staff that every student is
entitled to personal attention and
helpful guidance from his instructors
regardless of the size of the institu
tion. y " v" .
. The college adopted a policy some
years ago of only admitting those
who appeared capable of high grade
college work, particularly from out-of-state,
and then doing all possible
to insure success for those accepted.
This year 156 applicants had been
denied admission tip t9 the middle of
September because they failed to meet
the high standards.
President Kerr told the faculty that
the federal commission that has sur
veyed Oregon higher education ei
pects to complete its report in Octo
ber and have it printed for distribu
tion early in November, according to
information from the chairman, Dr.
Arthur J. Klein of Washington, D. C.
