Will Be Gathered Late in
April or the First Week
in May.
Walla Walla. Albert Baker, local
national forest ranger, stated Satur
day that the first spring roundup of
wild horses in the Walla Walla dis
trict of the Umatilla National forest
would be held either late in April or
the first weeks in May.
These horses, many of which are
domesticated stock that have heeded
'the call of the wild' and escaped into
the inaccessible parts of the forest,
have been roaming the hills for years
and increasing their numbers at a
very rapid rate. They eat a vast
amount of forage that otherwise
could be devoted to the bands of cat
tle and sheep that are ranged in the
Blue mountains, and although the
forest service has long wanted to rid
the timber lands of these animals
they have not been able to do so
through a technicality of the law.
A few years ago an attempt was
made to roundup .these animals but
the ranger in charge was arrested
and considerable effort was expended
by the government in getting , him
freed. Now, however, the law has
been changed in order that the round
up can be held without interference.
Stock owners of the district will be
notified prior to the drive so that they
can secure any horses belonging to
them before the drive" starts. The
others will be sold to. the packing
plant located in, Echo, Oregon, and
there will be slaughtered and packed
in tins which will . be shipped to
France and Russia, where the people
consider horse meat a rare delicacy.
Some will be sold in this country for
dog meat, and the fisheries along the
coast almost universally - use horse
meat for feeding the young fish.

W.L. Thompson Will be
a Candidate for Senate
in the Campaign of 1932
William L. Thompson, formerly of
Portland but now engaged in the
salmon packing business in Astoria,
is going to be a candidate for the Re
publican L, nomination for ' United
States senator in the primary elec
tion of May, 1932. That is unless he
changes the state of his mind as it
existed Thursday night when he con
fided to close friends that he intended
to make the race.
It will be remembered that Thompson
started to run for the United States
senate once before, when he parted a
long association with R. N. Stanfield,
whom he had supported in his can
didacy for the senate at the time of
his election to the senate. - He had
supported Stanfield in 1916 when he
first ran, that time against McNary,
and again in 1920, when he entered
an apparently hopeless fight against
George E. Chamberlain and won. But
in 1926, when Stanfield came up for
reelection, Thompson started out
against him and then stopped.
Now, it seems from what is report
ed from the huddle held Thursday
night in the Marion hotel, Thompson
has gained the impression that Sena
tor Steiwer is not going to have such
easy sledding - in the campaign of
1932 and that it is necessary for
some strong man to get out into the
field and stand as a Republican bul
wark between the senate and the dan
ger of a Democratic senator.
President Issues Order to
Give Priority to Men in
Actual Need.
Carrying Charge Plans
Made by the Corporation
' The East Oregonian gives the fol
lowing announcement as made " in
Spokane in behalf of the North Pa
cific Grain Growers association:
After conferring with Mr." Henry
W. Collins, vice-president of the
Farmers National Grain Corporation,
Chicago, an agreement has been
reached with the National Corpora
tion whereby we are able to make the
following offer to members:
Members desiring to carry their
wheat until June 15, will be pro
tected against carrying charges un
til June, not to exceed the sum of 2c
per bushel. This rate is intended to
cover all charges of whatever nature,
including interest, storage, taxes and
insurance. Rather than compute the
individual member, the full 2cper
bushel will be added to the supported
price that will be paid for wheat de
livered in May, but as a refund of
carrying charges and not as an in
creased market price.
Carrying charges will not be .paid
for non-members. It is a service
rendered by the North Pacific to
members of its Locals only.
This is ill no wise to be construed
as an increase in stabilized prices. It
is a service being undertaken by the
North Pacific for its members only,
and is not to be confused with any
activity of the Grain Stabilization
Corporation or the Farm Board.
- This enables members of the co
operatives to carry their wheat to be
sold during the remainder of this
present crop season. Through his
membership the grower is placed in
position to benefit by whatever fav
orable markets may yet appear, and
likewise will receive the advantage of
any freieht rate adjustments that
might come' about.
Mr. Adams spoke highly of the
assistance given by Mr. Collins and
the other officers of the Farmers Na
tional, through whose efforts this ser
vice is made possible.

Over Woolworths. Phone 1286 Pendleton Oregon
Both house and senate passed the
bonus bill over President Hoover's
veto. Immediately after the bill be
came a law, the president issued an
order to give priority to ex-service
men in actual need.
. The vote in the senate was 76 to
17. The vote in the house was 328 to
79. .
Shouts and hisses came from the
galleries during the debate when Sen
ator Hastings, Republican, of Dela
ware said there were veterans who
would "steal the certificates from
their wives and go out and borrow
money to spend the night with an
other woman."
Immediately there were cries of
"No, no, nol" and Senator Moses, Re
publican, of New Hampshire, who
was presiding, called loudly for order.
He had just previously warned
against applause. Attendants rush
ed about the gallery quieting the vis
itors as a storm of senatorial re
proof descended on Hastings' head.
President Hoover in his veto mes
sage assailed the theory and practice
of the loan proposal. He said it would
be a serious burden on the treasury,
would help the veterans relatively
little and would set up a dangerous
The bill as enacted provides a fiat
loan value on adjusted compensation
certificates of 60 per cent, of the ma
turity face value, less the principal
and interest of any prior loans. It al
so reduces the interest rate to 4
per cent. In order to negotiate a
loan, a veteran must have had his
policy at least two years.
Thus a veteran whose policy calls
for a full value of $1000 can borrow
$500 at 4 per cent interest com
pounded annually. If he has borrow
ed in the past, the full amount due on
his previous loans will be deducted,
Previously a veteran was able to
borrow a maximum of 22 per cent,
with the exact loan value based on
actual statistics. The interest rate
was fixed at 2 per cent above the
current federal reserve rediscount
rate for the district in which the loan
was made.
Senators voting against the bill
were: KepuDiicans cingnam,
Borah, Fess, Goff, Gould, Hastings,
Berbert Metcalf, Morrow, Moses,
Phipps Reed, Smoot, Walcott, Water
man, watson.
Democrats (1), King.
Reauest that World war veterans
not in actual need delay their app.v
cations for loans under the new law
for a few days until veterans in poor
circumstances can be cared lor, was
issued by Colonel George Ijams, dir
ector of the U. S. veterans' bureau
Newspapers and broadcasting sys
tems were asked by Ijams to give
wide nublicity to the request.
Anticipating final passage oi tne
bonus bill, the bureau had prepared
telegrams for immediate dispatch to
regional offices authorizing increases
in the forces oi workers. Additional
funds in the regional office also are
being provided for prompt payment
of loans. .
"Every effort has been made in ad
vance to build un a machine which
will work smoothly," Ijams said, ine
bureau is prepared for its new task."
The announcement to tne veterans
Biiid: . "The law increases tne loan
basis of adjusted service certificates
which have been in force more tnan
two years to 50 per cent of their face
value. The veterans' bureau has made
arrangements to handle the new loans
as expeditiously as possible, out m
order that those veterans who are in
dire need may be served first, it is
requested that other veterans who are
not so unfortunate witnnoia applica
tions for loans until their less for
tunate comrades may be served.
"If you have already secured a loan,
application for a new loan should be
made to the office from which you
received your first loan. You are
urgently requested not to communi
,.oto with the veterans' bureau in
Washington or its regional offices af
ter vour application has been filed,
as such correspondence will serve to
retard the service to veterans.
A New Stunt Tried on

High School Notes
.' Betty Eager
Why does each state of the Union
have laws? Is it so the people of
each state can break them? No!
Everyone knows that each state has
certain laws for its people to abide
by, attempting to make our country
as a whole better. Can this be done
if the people insist on. breaking the
laws and paying no attention to
them T It is very doubtful. In Ore
gon and many other states drivers
of automobiles are supposed to stop
when they come from a side street
onto the main highway or the main
thoroughfare. If you look closely
when you come to the end of one of
these streets that leads onto a high
way you can see a post that has been
put where drivers can see it and on
this post there is a large sign that
says "S-T-O-P." Is that sign put
there to beautify the country or is it
put there to enforce the law of stop
ping at a stop street t Of course it
is the latter, but as far as a number
of drivers are concerned it is put
there to beautify the surrounding
country. Such people as these drive
on and pay no attention to , these
signs. People such as thesearea
detriment to our country because if
they break this law they will break
others that are just as important.
These people will get by the officers
of the law for a short time and may
be a long time but in the end they
will be caught and they may wish
they had obeyed the laws of their
state but this is very doubtiui. uur
country is not benefitted by people
who break the laws and mucn less
are they themselves who are breaking
the laws. If each one of us would do
our part in observing these laws it
would help much and maybe in time
this country will be what we are
working for.
