FALSE ATTACK IDE
Sports Head In Error As
to Position of Public
(Oregon Public Utility Information
In a statement issued to the press
of Oregon over the signatures of
Edward K. Piasecki, president, and
C .B. Phillips, secretary, of the Ore
gon Game Protective Association,
for the purpose of enlisting support
in behalf of the four measures pro
hibiting the development of Oregon
streams for power and irrigation
purposes, a studious effort is made
to place the light and power com
in this state in a
false position before the public The
stockholders of these concerns,
numbering thousands of Oregon res
irionta huvp invested more than
$200,000,000.00 in plants and trans
mission lines to serve the public,
and they resent some of the expres
sions calculated to prejudice the
vtninla ncrninst useful indUStTV.
The Oregon Game Protective Asso
ciation would close tne MOtvenzie,
Via Rnnis thn North ITmDQua and
th neachntes Rivers to future de
velopment for the pleasure of the
members of the Association, ana
for the purpose of gaining votes
for these initiative bills, its officers
make this statement to tne press
That these measures will be
bitterly opposed by selfish and
grasping power groups and pub
lic utilities is certain. They
have much at stake in the way
of personal and private gain.
They will make much of the
bugaboo of 'hindered progress.'
.... You will readily under
stand that the real reason for
their opposition is because these
measures will make it more dif
ficult for them to appropriate
for their own private gain the
remaining state owned waters
in these four rivers.
Other equally misleading and un
true statements are made. The
facts are that the light and power
companies have made no effort to
defeat these measures. Their ex-
' ecutive officers have made no plans
for a campaign against these bills,
nor will they, and they are willing
to leave the question of hampering
state development to the common
sense judgment of the people who
will read the newspapers for com
plete information regarding the ef
fect of these four meassures upon
the future welfare fOf this great
The responsible officials of the
light and power companies believe
the people can be trusted to view
dispassionately any legislative pro
posals submitted to them. But it
is wrong and unjust to fool the pub
lic by holding the electrical indus
try up as an enemy to sound pro
gress. When that is done, as in
this instance, it shows the weakness
of the position taken by the pro
ponents of these bills. They had
ample opportunity to ascertain the
facts and to obtain complete infor
mation of the attitude of the light
and power companies. But they
have preferred to go to the news
papers with charges that they must
nave known are erroneous.
In simple justice to themselves,
the electric utility companies deny
these charges and brand them as
false. They decline to be dragged
into a fight resulting from a situ
ation created by the sponsors of the
measures, and they had hoped the
people could make a calm decision
without the influence of such untrue
statements to which the officers of
the Oregon Game Protective Asso
ciation have subscribed.
It is entirely practicable to use
the streams for power development
without injury to fish culture. It
would be far better that an effort
be made to co-ordinate the two pur
poses rather than to absolutely pro
hibit the one which is of great im
portance to development of Ore
gon. 's resources.

barley was said to be scarce at San
Francisco and substantial premiums
were paid over grading and feed
HAY Although receipts are mod
erately heavy in proportion to de
mand and there is an oversupply
of low grade alfalfa in middle-western
markets, the hay markets were
generally firmer with choice alfalfa
SEEDS Red Clover seed mar
kets were quiet but firm With lim
ited offerings. October futures at
Toledo were quoted at $18.65 a bu
shel on August 1, compared to $15.10
on March 7, or approximately 6
cents a pound higher.
POTATOES Carlot shipments of
potatoes are running lighter and
markets have improved, but crop
reports are generally favorable In
dicating a large production of late
potatoes from an increased acreage.
The New Jersey crop is not expect
ed to be as large as last year and
heavy blight damage is reported in
the Long island crop.
DAIRY PRODUCTS The Pacific
Coast butter markets were very
firm and prices advanced about 1
cent, 92 score bringing 47 cents a
pound at Los Angeles. The dairy
situation remains very strong sta
tistically for the present although
some observers think that consump
tion is being curtailed by higher
LIVESTOCK Killer cattle c
tinued lower last week in eastern
markets, especially kinds not well
finished, but all kinds of cattle are
bringing higher prices compared to
other years. There was not mucn
change in hog and lamb markets.
ONIONS The general condition
of the United States onion crop is
reported about 10 per cent below
1927, the crop being poor in New
York, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Or
egon especially. Shipments are only
about half as heavy as last year
at this time. Onions are being im
ported from Spain in quantity.
Says that Jesus was not one of
ten of the World's greatest think
ers. In the sense that Jesus did
not indulge in abstract philosophical
discussions, Durant is correct. He
says that the' appeal of Jesus is
more to the emotions than to the
intellect Now every proposition of
Jesus is fundamentally sound but
at the same time it is true that he
has made an appeal to the whole
man that no one else has ever been
able to make and for this reason we
call Him THE WORLD'S GREAT
EST TEACHER. We will discuss
Jesus as a Teacher at the Sunday
evening service at the Church of

Heifers are sometimes brought to
milk by being nursed by another
heifer or smaller calf kept in the
same lot This situation is not ser
ious to the heifer if the practice la
stopped by separating the animals
as soon as discovered, says the ex
periment station. Ordinarily the
heifer will then freshen naturally
without udder difficulties.
Blackhead of fowls is chiefly
transmitted In Oregon through soil
contamination. Eggs of the cecum
worm are the chief carriers of the
parasite. It is not definitely known
how long these eggs will live'in the
soil, but they probably remain for
several years, finds the poultry de
partment of the experiment station.
The best means of control of this
and many other poultry diseases is
to prevent development through fre
quent change of range.
The European earwig, which Is
gradually spreading in Oregon since
its introduction in Portland, Is best
controlled by thoroughly spreading
a poison bran mash about the prem
ises. The formula Is sodium fluor
ide, 1 pound; molasses, 2 quarts;
water, 2 gallons and wheat bran
16 pounds. Complete description of
this serious pest and detailed dis
cussion of its control are given In

GRAIN Continued unusually heavy
receipts of hard red winter wheat
together with improved prospects
for spring wheat in the United
States and Canada, favorable prog
ress of European crops and lower
foreign markets caused further
weakness in domestic wheat mar
kets. Soft red winter wheat, how
ever, was scarce and continued to
sell at relatively large premiums
over the hard winter. Private crop
estimates on August 1 indicate a
substantial increase in the North
American wheat crop compared to
July 1 estimates.

ket continued to decline last week,
