With John Withycombe of Ar
lington as chairman and W. W.
Lawrence of The Dalles as secre
tary, the transportation committee
will bring recommendations re
garding Coluhibia rivei develop-'
ment and convenient truck trans
portation. The truck problem was
anticipated by the 1931 league meet
ing at The Dalles and it got the
facts well in advance of the radical
attempt to put such restrictions on
the trucks as to make them useless
in the fight for lower grain rates
to tidewater. The movement was
decisively killed by the Oregon elec
torate in the blow-up November 8,
but the truck legislation at this
coming legislative session must be
given careful consideration. Truck
transportation of grain, hay, pota
toes, fruit, etc., has developed
some new problems as well as the
control of fly-by-night agricultural
bootleggers who seek to avoid the
grading and inspection regulations,
are now before this and the legis
lative committee. Transportation

Robertson of the Portland office
as well as others close to the Ag
ricultural Reconstruction Finance
corporation will be on hand to help
in clarifying the use of these new
finance channels. Eastern Oregon's
acute banking situation will pep up
the work of this committee. The
local representatives have been
badly handicapped by delays in
Washnigton, D. C, which have
made wheat loans difficult and
hard to make. The non-partisan
board apparently cannot be blasted
into action by political pressure so
opportunity to eliminate some bu
reaucratic red tape will not be ov
erlooked at this session.
Scott, Howard Slated.
This important committee, head
ed by Mac Hoke of Pendleton and
advised by W. H. Dreesen, state
college taxation expert, will con
sider legislative and taxation mat
ters. Leslie Scott, highway com
mision chairman, and C. A. How
ard, superintendent of public in
struction, representing two of the
state's greatest spending agencies,
have been asked to meet with the
league at Condon. Members of

whole gamut of sales taxes, gas
taxes, income taxes, county consol
idation, auto and truck licensing
and taxing, highway and school fi
nancing, as well as legislative mat
ters in its lap. It is expected that
its members will be working far
into the night to complete its rec
ommendations to the general meet
While selection of cabinet officers
is not in the every-day program of
the Eastern Oregon Wheat league,
members who so roundly applaud
ed Dr. M. L. Wilson's economic dis
cussions and presentation of the
Black plan at the Heppner meet
ing two years ago, will be inter
ested in rumors that he has been
very close to Governor Roosevelt
during the campaign. Grapevine
has it that he is a likely prospect
for a cabinet post with the new ad
ministration. It would be a novel
experience for the west to be rep
resented by a trained and exper
ienced agriculturist in the cabinet
after so many years of midwest pol
iticians directing the course of the
nation's agricultural department.
May Appoint Dr. Wilson.
Dr. Wilson, who is the economist
of the Montana State college, is
largely responsible for the new Do
mestic Allotment plan which is a
modification of the old McNary
Haugen plan, heartily endorsed at
every meeting of the league since
its organization. The new plan
will be discussed at length during
the meeting at Condon, Dec. 2-3.
Some press dispatches say President-elect
Roosevelt, as soon as he
is inaugurated, will call a big farm
conference to work out a new farm
relief plan embodying the Domestic
With wheat production and mar
keting in its present condition there
is every reason to believe that Con
don's capacity will be taxed to the
utmost. Businessmen and farmers
