As it is now the general public
are led to believe that the deficit
when insured has its origin in
service rendered to the paying
portion ol the public at too cheap
a rate. Where as the real
source is in the gratuitous ser
vice rendered to the other de
partments of the government
and the use and possible abuse of
the franking system.
My dear Mr. Editor:
The Acting Chief Forester has
just advised me that Oregon has
been apportioned $1,039,474 out
of the $7,500,000 authorized for
national roads and trails in the
Second Deficiency Appropria
tion Bill passed during the clos
ing days of the last Congress.
Following is his letter to me:
"The Second Deficiency Ap
propriation authorized the secre
tary of agriculture - to apportion
$7,500,000 among the national
forest states ' for the construc
tion of national forest roads and
Thii amount, however, will
not be avaible for expenditure
nntil appropriated by Congress.
By section 23 of the Federal
Highway Act, the total is divided
into two funds $1,500,000 for
the Forest Highway fund and
13,000,000 .for the Forest De
velopment fund." j
The Secretary of Agriculture'
has taken the required action, j
Of the $7,500,000, Oregon wil
receive $581,745 from the Forest;
Highway fund and $457,729 from
the Forest Development fund."
Most sincerely yours,
Robtert N. Stanfield.

But their superb will power won. and

quickened and few drops of the

not levying a higher direct prop
erty tax in order to make up for
the shortage caused by repeal of
the state income tax5. Bui where
is there anything in the law or
the constitution that makes it
illegal for a taxing body to re
duce a levy? Why not assail the)
egislature for appropriating
money without being sure there
would be money available,
Where is there anything in law
or in ethics that says the farm

may be exempt from state or
