TAX COMMISSION
WILL MA
S
Instructions Indicate Course
to Be Taken by Those Af
fected by New Law.
Salem. The state tax commission
this week will mail out approximately
65,000 blanks for returns to be made
by taxpayers under the new intangi
bles and personal income tax laws.
Each blank will be accompanied by
general instructions for the informa
tion and guidance of the taxpayer.
"While the list of names used in
mailing the blanks has been com
piled from all available sources, it
does not include many who are liable
for the payment of either the intan
gibles or personal Income tax or
both," reads a statement issued by
the tax commission. "In this connec
tion the commission calls attention
that failure of anyone to receive a
blank form through the mails does
not, in any sense, relieve him or her
of liability for making the return and
paying the tax.
"All of those subject to either the
intangibles or personal income tax
who may not receive blanks are asked
to communicate with the commission
and blanks will be forwarded to
them," says the announcement.
. The statement continues:
While the personal income tax law
was approved by the people at the
election last November, and taxes
thereunder would ordinarily have be
come due and payable April 1 of this
year, the date for filling returns and
making payments was deferred, by
order of the commission, to June 15,
1931. This was done for the reason
that the personal income and the new
intangibles tax law enacted by the
last legislature have inter-locking
provisions and the latter does not be
come effective until June 6.' Both
laws first apply to incomes received
during the calendar year 1930.
The forms prepared by the com
mission provide for a single return to
be made by each taxpayer, covering
income taxable under either the per
sonal income or intangibles tax laws,
or both, as the case may be. The
intangibles tax law distinctly pro
vides that it may be so administered
in connection with the personal in
come tax law. The former applies
only to net income received as inter-
est and dividends from intangibles,
the latter applies to net income of the
taxpayer received from other sources.
The same income is therefore taxable
only once, depending on its source.
This combination of the two taxes
in one return will, the commission
believes, afford the largest possible
convenience to taxpayers and, at the
same time, will reduce expense and
facilitate administration.
The instructions which accompany
each blank set out in detail the var
ious kinds of income which are cov
ered by each tax, the deductions and
exemptions allowable and the rates
under each law, also the penalties
provided for failure to file returns
and for attempts to evade the taxes.
It is distinctly provided that the
amounts collected under personal in
come and intangibles tax laws, to
gether with the amount collected un
der the excise tax on income of cor
porations, shall be applied to reduce
the direct property tax for state pur
poses. Such reduction will appear in
the state levy of taxes for 1932 and
will be reflected in property tax state
ments next year.
Baker Newspaper Fails
The Baker Daily Record, published
as a morning paper since March 20,
was suspended and will be sold at
sheriff's sale by the creditors. Claims
against it were said to be about $20,
000. The Record was established as
a weekly in 1926. Since January,
1929, Ernest L. Crockatt formerly of
Pendleton published it, first as a
weekly, then as a semi-weekly, and
during the last three months as a
daily.

U. P. Moves To
BringBack Local
Freight Business
A party of Union Pacific railroad
officials were in Athena Saturday in
terviewing Athena merchants and
business men, with the view of re
trieving loss of freight business to
auto truck service from Portland to
Eastern Oregon and Washington
points, which the railroad is now
ready to serve with a truck pickup
service.
C. M. Eager, local agent for the
Union Pacific, informs the Press that
Union Pacific Stages, Inc., have es
tablished an express service with free
pickup and delivery in a number of
towns in Oregon. The service is as
follows. The office in Portland will
remain open until 6 p. m. to receive
shipments from the stage company.
These shipments will leave Portland
every night, arrive in Pendleton the
next morning in time to connect with
the O.-W. R. & N. local freight train
which arrives here between 9:30 and
11:30 .a m. The time from Portland
to Athena is very near as fast as auto
truck time and they are endeavoring
to get back some of the business that
has gone to the truck lines, and which
rightfully belongs ,to the railroad
company. He adds that the O.-W. R.
& N. paid taxes of $1,295,868.22 in
the state of Oregon for the past year,
some of which no doubt went to the
upkeep of the highways over which
trucks operate.
According to officials the Union
Pacific pays Umatilla county this year
$232,774.98 in taxes and this money
is used for road maintenance, etc. The
railroad has several hundred em
ployees in the county and many of
these own their own homes, spending
their pay checks in their own town.
Pendleton merchants have been
quick to endorse this action and Wed
nesday's East Oregonian carried a
half page advertisement setting forth
the reason why local merchants
should patronize the railroads.
The new rate schedule is on less
than carload lots and include ' free
pickup and delivery at your door.
Bud Miller has been employed as local
pickup man for the Athena district.
Oppose License Cut
Proposed by Hal Hoss
A number of county judges have
gone on record in opposition to Hal
Hoss' proposed cut in automobile lic
enses in Oregon to a flat $3 fee.
Eighteen countv luderes have regis
tered their disapproval in unmis
takable terms. Counties represented
so' far by replies are Douglas, Grant
Lane, Linn, Wasco, Deschutes, Clat
sop, Union Hood River Lake, Uma
tilla. Multnomah. Jefferson. Marion
Washington and Coos.
The auery. asking for "effect on
vour county road situation and fin
ances if Hoss' proposal for $3 auto
mobile license fee is put into ettect,
was made of each county judge in
th state and of the chairman of the
board of commissioners of Mult
nomah county.
"A property tax on automobiles has
proved in the past unsatisfactory and
uncollectable," wired I. M. Schannep
of Umatilla county. "Under a i
license counties would lose $6 to $7
a car, or receive from the license fees
only about one seventh as much as
now received. How will the bonded
counties pay their bonds?"
Miss Nichols Will Try It
Within a week Miss Ruth Nichols,
holder of speed and altitude records
for women fliers, will hop oft on her
anlo trans-Atlantic flieht. according
to a statement made by her technical

berlain, himself a trans-Atlantic pilot.
The take-off will be from Droyer's
Point airport, Jersey City, lor HarDor
Grace, N, F., where Miss Nicholas
will leave the American continent be
hind with Paris as her destination.
She will fly the same plane in which
she established her other records. ,
Miller in Charge
The services of M. I. Miller have
been retained by Athena-Weston Le
gion post as caretaker and manager
of the swimming pool at city park
for the summer. The pool was clean
ed by- Mr.' Miller Monday and later
filled with water from the city wa
ter works. With warmer weather,
the pool will begin to receive patron
age from swimmers of the com
munity. Buys Athena Property

will occupy.
Fishermen Were Cold
Athena anglers who fished on the
Umatilla river Sunday last, nearly

Additional Lots and New
Fence Added to Cemetery
This week the Athena Cemetery
Association added a new plot of
thirty burial lots to the cemetery
from acreage recently acquired, and
a new fence encloses the entire ceme
tery property on the east, south,
west and on the north, for the dis
tance of the new plot.
A twenty-foot driveway now ex
tends through the length of the
cemetery on the south side, and it
will be of great convenience in ac
commodating vehicles.
The new fence is of wire with iron
posts. The association secured the
fencing material from Rogers &
Goodman at cost, and the work of
erecting it was done by donation la
bor on the part of Ernest Hanie, C.
O. Henry, Carl Sheard, Chas. Math
ews, Dad Welch and others.
Under supervision of the associa
tion, the cemetery . Is being kept in
good condition. The work done thus
far by the association has been ma
terially assisted by the few, who have
taken membership, and with an in
crease in membership, improvement
will be made accordingly. A life
membership in the association for
$100 involves on the organization
perpetual care of one burial lot.
There are a number of lots now in
the cemetery that havebeen under
perpetual care of the association, and
with perhaps a few exceptions, their
appearance is very marked when
compared with those lots not having
care and attention.
On the whole, however, Athena
cemetery presents a very favorable
appearance at this time, but the as
sociation hopes in the future to have
support eo that expense of upkeep
of all lots may be met. Dad Welch
is sexton and caretaker for. the as
sociation. , , .

Barnes' Weston Wobblies.
And Billy is smoking 50c cigars.
Let him smoke 'em; all he wants of
them. With such a flock of players
to burn up the Weston diamond Billy
and the fans over here are counting
the game as good as won. One of the

from Sim Culley, and another says
the shouting will be over when the
Weston goat is tied to the grand
stand, placidly masticating Kernel
Wood's pink pajamas.

BUTLER AND
I
GEN
COMMITTEE
PLAN
Executive Conference of the
State Police Was Held at
Salem Tuesday.
Salem.--"Don't confuse the state
police of Pennsylvania with the coal
and iron guards," Major General
Smedley D. Butler cautioned news
paper men here in the course of an
interview Tuesday afternoon. "Most
people do that to the detriment of
the state police. The coal and iron
guards are private police hired by
the coal and iron companies to guard
private property and have no connec
tion whatever with the state police
organization."
Butler, here by invitation of Gov
ernor Meier, went into conference
with the governor's special committee
to give the benefit of his experience
in police organizations for use in set
ting up the newly created department
in this state. Contrary to the general
impression, that he was called west
to organize the Oregon police, the
marine general made it clear that
he was only here to tell the gover
nor's committee what he knew about
such organizations through his years
of marine and police work.
From his experience and that of
other experts the committee will
evolve the organization that is to
head up law enforcement activities
in Oregon. Members of the committee
are Major General George A. White;
Brigadier General Thomas A. Silea;
Colonel A. E. Clark of Portland; Luke
S. May, Seattle criminologist, and R.
R. Hewitt, dean of the school of law
of Willamette university. "
The conference was strictly inform
al and just as strictly executive.
"There s nothing coming up that
the press and public would be inter
ested in," Major General George A.
White, chairman of the committee,
told newspapermen clamoring for ad
mission to the conference chambers.
"If there is any row or if General
Butler forgets himself and uses a
cuss word we will let you know about
it."
Correcting an impression gained
from a press dispatch originating in
the East to the effect that he favored
the enlistment of single men exclu
sively for the state police organiza
tion General Butler declared that he
was not prejudiced against married
men in such an organization.
"An ideal organization will only h
take in single men but would permit
them to marry after so long a time."
he explained. "That's the way we do
in the marines. We don't take in
married men on a first enlistment but
after they are in many of them marry
with the approval Of their officers and
then reenlist and remain in the ser
vice. Fully 25 per cent of the ma
rines are married men. There's a lot
of rough work to be done in any po
lice organization and wives might be
in the way, you understand."
Butler considers the state police
force of Pennsylvania a model organ
ization of its kind, and declared that
it had resulted not only in increased
efficiency in police work in that state
but in materially reduced costs.
Vic Harris Home Again
Vic Harris, who . spent several
months at Portland, where he re

Feeds Jravelers
People along the highway running
through Athena are confronted with
the problem of feeding, the traveling
"hikers" so prevalent now due to un
employment. One resident reports
appinir a eroun- of four bovg about

to "hitch-hike" across the country.
This same person admits that hard
