By JAP CRAWFORD.
Salem, Jan. 3. The third week
of Oregon's 37th legislative assem
bly got under way today, with the
personal feud between the governor
and state treasurer which came so
forcibly to the surface last week
dropping into the background. At
last reports 'it was found the two
leading state officials were agreed
on the matter of transfer of funds
from self-sustaining departments
to tide the general fund over the
existing crisis.
Though the total of bills thrown
into the hopper In the two houses
had nearly reached the 200 mark
today, there still maintained a
lethargy of action, the large bulk of
the bills being In the hands of com
mittees. Such bills as have been
passed to date are mainly bills of
application; to particular localities
against which there was little or
no opposition. It Is the attitude of
most of the committees to give the
public a chance to be heard on all
bills of general importance, and a
number of public hearings are slat
ed on such bills.
Public Given Hearings.
A public hearing this afternoon
was had by the revision of laws
committee on house bills 4, 19, 25
and 26, all of which seek to curb
the operation of small loan compan
ies who are permitted to charge al
legedly exhorbitant rates of Inter
est Under the present law these
specially licensed small loan com
panies may charge as much as 3
per cent a month on loans under
$300. One of the bills offered would
cut the rate to 1 per cent a month.
A little ripple was evidenced on
the presentation of an enabling act
by Representatives Lewis, Dickson
and Dykes, which would be put In
to operation the "Grange Power
Bill" passed by the people last elec
tion. A public hearing on this bill,
No. 99, has been called for Thurs
day, Jan. 26, at 8 p. m. Calling for
the creation of a new hydro-electric
commission to supplant the body al
ready in existence, this bill would
enable the commission to Issue
bonds for operation, as needed, up
to the estimated $67,000,000 sanc
tioned by the people last November.
Revenue-producing measures are
still in abeyance, awaiting the re
port of the joint ways and means
committee, which report will not be
due till later in the week, and there
is then the possibility of an exten
sion of time being granted. The
committee was given ten days in
the original resolution. Sponsors
of the various types of tax bills, In
cluding income tax measures, the
"shelter sales tax" bill, luxury tax
bill, and several others, are none
the less assiduously at work, and
the destiny of most of the meas
ures should be well determined by
the time they come to a vote.
Peoples' Will Reflected.
Meanwhile many bills looking to
economies in state and local gov
ernment have been proposed, most
of which are still in the hands of
the counties and cities committees
of the two houses. Bills calling for
consolidation of counties, Institu
tion of county boards of control
and supplanting the work of the
commissioners In the offices of
clerk and assessor acting with the
county judge; limitation of the tax
ing powers of counties, municipal
ities and local taxing districts; sal
ary reduotion (with no measure of
general application yet appearing),
doing away with the minimum wage
of school teachers, and many oth
ers of like nature are in the hop
per. Some of these will be with
drawn, no doubt, and others will
be strenuously opposed; but the ex
pressed will of the people at the last
election Is being reflected quite tru
ly by the action of legislators.
A flock of bills thrown Into the
hopper this morning by Carl Ab
rams, Marlon representative and
former state purchasing agent, look
to efficiency and economy In the
operation of some of the state de
partments. Fishing and game have come In
for their share of attention as us
ual, with rights of the people vs,
commercial interests again show
ing as the bone of contention as re
garding the first. Some game bills
have been produced affecting cer
tain localities, and there has been
talk of a bill to open the season on
elk in some counties but this has
not yet appeared. The state game
commission has taken the stand
that there Is no need for changing
the existing laws. In spite of this
there has been a bill presented to
return enforcement to that body
from the state police.

The one bill so far presented by
Representative Turner of Morrow
county, dealing with waiving of
penalty and interest by county
courts on delinquent taxes, has not
come out of committee, but there
has been a goodly expression of op.
inlon that the bill is needed. Con
trary to the Interpretation of the
bill by the Condon Globe Times in
an editorial last week, this bill docs
put a restriction on the time for
which penalty and interest may be
waived. It is merely an extension
of an existing statute to include
the time on which penalty and in
terest may be waived up to and in
cluding 1933, the present statute
granting the power for the year
1927. The matter of waiving pen
alty and Interest is mada discre
tionary and not compulsory with
the courts.

GRANGE OPPOSES
REFUND REPEAL
Tax Rebate Said to be Necessary
For Operation of Wheat Farms
Under Present Conditions.
Both farmers and business men
joined in passing resolutions oppos
ing the repeal of the gas refund law
as suggested by Hal E. Hoss, sec
retary of state, at the meeting of
Rhea Creek Grange Friday eve
ning last. The resolutions adopted
to be forwarded to the legislature
at Salem are similar to resolutions
passed at the last meeting of Mor
row County Pomona grange at Ce
cil, and were as follows:
Whereas, Hon. Hal E. Hoss, Sec
retary of State, has recommended
that the four-cent refund of the
gasoline tax upon gasoline used
for operating farm machinery be
repealed; and,
Whereas, the repeal of the statute
providing for such refund would
make it impossible for the farmers
of this section of the State to pro
duce wheat, since a great majority
of the farmers could not provide
themselves with livestock to take
the place of their tractors; and,
Whereas, many of the farmers
have purchased tractors under
sales contracts and have not paid
for them in full and would find it
necessary to turn back their trac
tors to the machinery companies at
a heavy loss if deprived of the four
cent refund ,on gasoline; and,
Whereas, it seems feasible to col
or the gasoline to be used for agri
cultural purposes so that it may be
identified, thus obviating the use of
the same for other purposes; there
fore, Be it Resolved by a general meet
ing of the farmers and business
men of Morrow County, held at the
Rhea Creek Grange Hall, on the
20th day of January, 1933, that It is
the sense of this meeting that the
statute providing for the refund of
four cent's per gallon upon gasoline
used for operating farm machinery
should not be repealed, and that we
recommend that such gasoline be
colored some color to be selected
by the Department of Agriculture
of the State of Oregon.

LIONS' HELP ASKED
Opposition to Open Season on Elk
Expressed; Club Discussions
Brought to an End.
The assistance of the Heppner
Lions club was solicited at their
Monday meeting, should application
be made by Morrow county for a
loan from the Reconstruction Fi
nance corporation to relieve the
stringency in the countys' relief
work which will be severe within a
few weeks. Gay M. Anderson pre
sented the matter on behalf of
Judge, Wm. T. Campbell, and stated
that because of the present bank
ing situation it would be necessary
soon for the county to go on a war
rant basis, and this would work a
hardship in the relief work because
of probable scalping of warrants.
While it was stated that decision
on making application for the loan
was still pending, the county judge
requested the club to make inves
tigation of the matter and be pre
pared to make their recommenda
tion should it be asked for. Mr.
Anderson, Dr. A. D. McMurdo and
Chas. Thomson were appointed to
investigate the proposal and report
recommendations at the next meet

MRS. ANNA B0RG
DIES IN PORTLAND
Pioneer Resident of Heppner Was
Born in Sweden 91 Years Ago;
Lived In Portland 20 Years.
Many old friends and neighbors
of Mrs. Anna Borg gathered at
Case' Chapel on Wednesday after
noon where services were held on
behalf of another early pioneer of
Heppner. Death came to Mrs.
Borg at her home at 1115 Mallory
avenue in Portland, Sunday, Jan
uary 22, following a short illness,
and she passed peacefully from the
scenes of this life. The body was
shipped to this city for Interment
in the family plot In Masonic cem
etery. The services at the chapel
were simple, but Impressive; Rev.
Glen White of the local Methodist
church delivered the funeral ad
dress and this was followed by the
Impressive burial service of the Or
der of Eastern Star by Ruth Chap
ter No. 32 of Heppner, of which
Mrs. Borg was a charter member,
and In which order she took a live
ly interest for many years. At the
grave commitment services were
conducted by Rev. White and local
arrangements were In charge of
Case Mortuary.
Accompanying the remains to
Heppner were three of the children
of Mrs. Borg, Dr. Oscar Borg of
Portland, Frank Borg of Missoula,
Montana, and Mrs. William Tamm
of Oakland, Calif. Mrs. Matilda A.
Swope of Portland, her eldest
daughter, was unable to attend
owing to illness.
Mrs. Anna (Anderson) Borg was
a native of Sweden, born on Febru
ary 9, 1842. At the time of her
death she wa3 aged 90 years, 11
months and 13 days. She became
the wife of Peter O. Borg in her na
tive land in 1866, and with her hus
band came to America in 1868, mak
ing their home in the city of Chi
cago for two and a half years, and
her husband engaged in the jewel
ry business. They then moved to
Carroll county, Missouri, and for
ten years engaged in farming, then
fitting an outfit for travel, the fam
ily crossed the plains to Oregon,
landing at Heppner. Here Mr.
Borg again engaged in the jewelry
business, and as a sideline also did
some farming. This business he
disposed of to his son Oscar, and
twenty years ago Mr. and Mrs.
Borg moved to Portland, where the
home has been since. Mr. Borg
passed away in 1916.
The surviving children of Mrs,
Borg are Mrs. Matilda Swope' of
Portland; Mrs. William Tamm of
Oakland, California; Frank Borg
of Missoula, Montana, and Dr. Os
car Borg of Portland.
Mrs. Borg was a quiet, unassum
ing woman, always devoted to her
family, and she was greatly respect
ed during the long years she made
her home among the people of this
community. Hers was a beautiful
life, well spent, and at the advanced
age of 91 years she has been sum
moned to a peaceful rest. Mrs.
Borg was for many years a mem
ber of the Methodist church and
lived a consistent Christian life.
O. E. S. MEETS TOMORROW.

reseeding situation, going over this
problem quite thoroughly, as he
did in other meetings in the coun
ty of a similar nature. In this con
nection, stress was laid upon smut
control, and proper treatment, and
if the necessary precautions are
taken at this time, there Is a splen
did opportunity to eradicate the
smut spores, as the same weather
conditions that kiled out the wheat
also killed the smut At the close

Hyslop States This Year
Gives Smut Control
Big Boost.
FREEZE GENERAL
Methods and Varieties for Spring
Seeding Discussed by College
Specialist at Friday Meeting.
What is probably the most gen
eral wheat freeze-out in the Colum
bia basin in history has given smut
control work a big boost, said Prof.
G. R. Hyslop, head of the farm
crops department at Oregon State
college, at the special meeting of
Rhea Creek Grange at their hall
Friday evening. Mr. Hyslop also
discussed the Domestic Allotment
plan for farm relief now being con
sidered by congress and methods
and varieties of wheat for- reseed
ing. This was one of a series of meet
ings held in the county the past
week, arranged by Chas. W. Smith,
county agent under the auspices of
grange organizations.- Other meet
ings were held at Boardman, Irri
gon and Lexington, where Prof.
Hyslop discussed problems peculiar
to the sections visited. Meetings
were also held with the agricultural
committees of the various granges
and programs were outlined and
arrangements made for demonstra
tion plots to try out new crops for
lands which may be taken out of
production of present crops.
"Because of the severe December
freeze and the killing of the seeded
fall wheat the ground is practical
ly free of smut spores," Prof. Hys
lop told his Rhea creek audience.
"If careful treatment is given the
wheat for reseeding the crop har
vested this year should be likewise
free of the smut" He recommend
ed the copper carbonate treatment
for Hie seed wheat which was not
heavily coated with smut, and for
the badly smutted seed he believed
the bluestone and lime water bath
treatment preferable, while the for
maldehyde treatment could be used
with good results.
In reseeding, Prof. Hyslop recom
mended the use of seed of the same
variety as that frozen out, If pos
sible, stating that fall wheat could
be safely sowed as late as the mid
dle of February. Where it is not
possible to seed the same variety,
and in order to avoid serious mix
ture discounts, he recommended the
use of some variety as nearly like
the former seeding as possible. For
white wheats he recommended
highly a new variety called White
Federation, which could be sowed
on land formerly devoted to Feder
ation, Hybrid 128 and other white
varieties. While Marquis was giv
en as a good variety to follow Tur
key Red, he stated that where It
was necessary to plant white wheat
in ground where Turkey was froz
en out it would be better practice
to disc out the fall sowing before
planting the white wheat
In his discussion of the Domestic
Allotment plan, Prof. Hyslop said
he was talking about something
that did not yet really exist, since
the plan as now advanced might
be radically changed before con
gress finished with it However, as
the plan now stands it seemed to
the speaker to contain many things
of merit. It provides for a tax up
on the millers of wheat which
would be returned to the producers
In the form of rebates from the
government, only those producers
who sign up and receive allotment
certificates participating in the re
bates. Tax rebates to the millers
on grain processed for export and
for feed are also provided, and the
administration of the plan would
be in the hands of national, state,
county and district committees.
The speaker said the plan was
quite complex and the administra
tion would be bound up in red taoe
to a considerable extent, but he be
lieved it could be made to work to
the benefit of the producer If It was
passed In its present form.
Mr. Hyslop gave a brief history
of the various plans of farm relief
presented In the past and discussed
the main features of the McNary
Haugen bill, the debenture plan,
and the Farm Marketing act under
which the farm board Is now work
ing. Sixteen people from Heppner at
tended the meeting and participat
ed In the social hour following the
program. Ladles of Rhea Creek
Grange served pie and coffee.
ANOTHER SMOKER COMING.
Frank Turner, official head of
Heppner's boxing commission, an
nounces that there Is to be another
smkoer at the Fair pavilion here

will be the wrestling bout between
George Gillis of Lexington and D.
J. Meyers of Lone Rock. Meyers

In the main event at the recent
smoker, and he was Immediately
challenged by Gillis. The latter has
been in training since, and this
