EDWARD F. BAILEY
Candidate for Governor
Upholds Income Tax,
Boy Scout Work and Heppner-Spray
Road Recognized In Com
Edward F. Bailey, democratic
nominee for governor and president
of the Junction City Lions club, was
a guest of Heppner Lions at their
meeting Monday. He stopped here
for a short time on his return home
from the state American Legion
convention at Baker. In his club
talk Mr. Bailey made no reference
to campaign issues, confining him
self to a short discourse on matters
pertaining to state . government.
This was his only public appear
ance while in the city, though he
expects to return later when he
hopes to meet a larger number of
Likening the state government
to a business, Mr. Bailey declared
three factors to enter into its suc
cessful conduct, namely: finance,
or sufficient money with which to
conduct the business; ability to sell
products at a profit, and coordina
tion and cooperation of the differ
ent departments and people within
the business to eliminate friction.
Cheaper Transportation Need
The present system of state fin
ancing causes the burden to fall too
heavily upon one class of property,
real and personal, he said. This
needs to be remedied if the state is
to progress. A fundamental prin
ciple of our system of government
requires that the people shall be
taxed according to their ability to
pay. Following this course, Mr.
Bailey advocatetd an income tax,
properly applied, as the best means
yet suggested for shifting the load
and giving the greatest relief to
those who now carry too much of
Touching the second factor, he
declared cheaper transportation
needed to facilitate the marketing
of Oregon products at a profit De
velopment of Oregon's waterways,
the Columbia and Wilamette rivers,
he asserted, would help bring this
More cooperation is needed on the
part of people all over the state to
do away with petty jealousy be
tween cities and individual sections.
More of the attitude prevalent with
in the service clubs is needed. Here
men get together to work for their
towns, doing that which is Dest for
the town and ignoring personal
gain, the candidate suggested in
treating the third factor. To bring
this about a leadership big enough
to rise above any single party or
faction must be had.
Oregon's problems are economic
In character, not political, Mr. Bail
ey said in conclusion. It is a mis
take for one party to oppose solu
tions for these problems Just be
cause another party happens to pro
pose them. Each solution should be
given the consideration Its merit
Justifies, and be considered wholly
on its merit not made a party is
sue. To Boost Spray Road

Indications of oil were discovered
from the 540 foot level of the well.

nounced this week. Each year pu
pils bring used books to school with
the desire of selling them, while
many inquiries are also made as
to the obtaining of these. Hereto
fore no centralized agency has been
employed, and the used books have
afforded more or less of a problem.
This year Miss Florence French,
high school student will be in
charge of an exchange where such
books may be disposed of and ac
quired. The school will set all
prices on books either bought or
sold, but the exchange will not be
conducted at a profit Mr. Poulson
says there is no desire whatever
to compete with the book stores who
handle new books.
In connection with the book ques
tion, Mr. Poulson says there will be
few If any changes this year In
the textbooks required by the state
course of study.
