More Than 400 Measures
So Far Given Law
Makers for Action.
RELIEF BILL PENDS
Governor's Influence Expected to
Be Strongly Feltln Final Ac
tion on Important Matters. -
By JAP CRAWFORD
Salem, Jan. 30. With the time
for free introduction of bills by
house members slated to end at
10 o'clock tomorrow morning, the
37th legislative assembly has set
tled down to the task of disposing
of the more than 400 bills already
presented. The half way point of
the stated session has just been
passed, and it is expected that
many bills will come, as the senate
has no cloture rule, and bills from
house committees and those mem
ber bills okehed by the house rules
and legislation committee may still
be given consideration. - Kouse
members also have recourse to a
two-thirds vote of the house In
gaining consideration for their
bills.
Out of the vast panorama of hu
man endeavors affected by the many
bills presented, those outstanding
problems indicated as a crying need
by the voice of the people are now
Indicated to be receiving the con
siderate attention of the state leg
islative and administrative depart'
ments, with the governor taking the
lead in dictating the remedies to
be applied. In his several messages,
the latest of which was received
by th- house today, touching on
mortgage relief, Governor Meier
has attempted to point the way out
of the state's difficulties. Since the
opening of the regular session none
of these major recommendations
has come to a test to determine
how far the legislative bodies will
adhere to his leadership. But with
a lack of any definite counter pro
grams of wide acceptance, it may
be expected that the governor's in
fluence will be most largely felt in
determining the policies to be fol
lowed. Due to arrive back in the house
most any time now is Senator Lee's
bill to put Into effect the governor's
recommendations on unemployment
reller. After having been once re
ferred to the joint unemployment
relief committee, the bill passed the
committee Friday afternoon with
amendments said to make it ac
ceptable. The bill calls for the es
tablishment of state unemployment
commission headed by the govern
or, and subcommittees of seven In
tne counties with the governor
holding the balance of appointive
power, and with the setup empow
ered to borrow up to the extent of
its credit from the Reconstruction
Finance corporation to administer
relief as needed in close coordina
tion with established agencies. The
governor was given the balance of
power by sponsors of the bill, be
cause It Is only In his name and
under his responsibility that mon
ey can be borrowed from the fed
eral agency.
The bill met some opposition In
public hearings on the ground that
It purveyed the wrong principle of
relief. Some called it a dole, and
opponents mostly were advocates
of different forms of rehabilitation
programs. Some members of the
joint committee expressed them
selves that they were sympathetic
with a workable plan of rehabilita
tion, but supported the present
measure because it affords the quick
relief asserted to be now needed.
They said adoption of this bill
would not hinder the adoption of
a rehabilitation program later If a
feasible program could be found.
In his message today the govern
or advocated a form of moratorium
on mortgage foreclosures, but did
not favor an unqualified morator
ium. It was his stated belief that
in many Instances, even today,
foreclosure is Justified In many In
stances by mortgagors quitting
their farms or because of refusal
to pay by some who are able to
meet their payments. As a means
of determining who la entitled to
this form of relief and who la not,
the governor advocated setting up
a court to examine the evidence of
fered In Justification for the relief.
It was his belief that relief should
be given only to those who were
doing their best to make the farm
or business pay and were unable to
meet their mortgage obligations be
cause of extenuating circumstances.
A special mortgage relief committee
has been appointed In the house,
from which Is expected a measure
carrying the governor's plan for
this form of relief.
Cutting governmental costs still
maintains a place of first Import,
ance, but all recommendations and
bills of this nature are still going
to the Joint ways and means com
mittee, and all matters pertaining
to state finances are expected to be
in continued abeyance so far as ac
tion on the floor of the house or
Benate Is concerned until after the
committee's report is received.
Individual members of both
houses are withholding action In
cutting salaries of officers of the
counties they represent, until af

by the counties and cities commit-

committee is attempting In this bill
to make a general readjustment of
salaries of county officers on the
basis of population, area and valua
tion of each county after the sys
tem now In effect In the state of
Washington. It Is said the readjust
ment will be in line, so far as prac
ticable, with the general sentiment
for reduction, and It is being at
tempted to set them in accordance
with prevailing economic condi
tions. However, under the plan, re
duction In some counties must nec
essarily be greater than in others
because their charts show that ex

which are equal as to base vary In
some Instances as much as two to

one to make.
It Is now believed that the legis

HEPPNER BANKS
WILL LIQUIDATE
First National and Farmers .
Stockgrowers Banks Taken In
Charge by Comptroller.
After taking advantage of a hol
iday since the 27th of last October,
the First National Bank of Hepp
ner was taken in charge by nation
al bank authorities; the Farmers
& Stockgrowers National, whose
Holiday covered a little shorter per.
Iod, has also come under the same
control, and Monday morning each
Institution was posted as follows:
"This bank, under direction of the
Comptroller of the Currency, is in
charge of R. E. A. Palmer, Nation
al bank examiner. Jan. 28, 1933."
It is understood that both banks
will be in charge of a receiver to be
appointed from Washington, and
that he is expected to be on hand
and take up the work of liquida
tion In about two weeks.
The community had hoped the
two Institutions would get together
vti a basis that would insure Hepp
ner one strong bank, but they fail
ed In this regardles of the earnest
efforts put forth to bring it about
Heppner has enjoyed good banking
facilities for a period of half a cen
tury, and It comes hard to be de
prived of the convenience of a mon
ey house, to say nothing of the tie
up of the finances of the county
which are so much needed now in
the carrying on of business.
Just how the funds held In the
banks belonging to Morrow coun
ty can be released, Is not right now
apparent. Treasurer Brlggs holds
securities that seem to be ample to
cover his balances, but he seems to
be handicapped In their disposal
right now. When the receiver takes
charge this problem may be worked
out.

Enthusiastic Meeting of Business
Men Tuesday Evening Talk
Over Proposition.
At the Monday luncheon of the
Heppner Lions club this week, Dean
T. Goodman presented for the con
sideration of those business men
present the tentative plan for issu
ing scrip to aid in carrying on local
retail business. Mr. Goodman had
been looking Into the matter and
was presenting it to the club as a
means of getting the subject before
the business men of Heppner and
to have some suggestions as to the
manner of procedure. He stated
that the community was facing a
serious question In the handling of
warrants of both the city and school
districts. Teachers, particularly,
were not able to get cash on their
warrants and this was working a
hardship on them and making it
impossible to find the money to
meet their actual and pressing
needs; this in turn, is forcing them
to go elsewhere and put up their
warrants In exchange "for the mer
chandise they are compelled to
have. It has, as a matter of fact,
become Impossible to a large ex
tent for the local merchant to fi
nance the situation, consequently
some plan to relieve the situation
seems necessary to be worked out.
Hence the proposal to augment the
local financial situation by the issu
ance of "leather money," or some
other token to be used as a medium
of exchange among the business
houses of the community and save
this slipping business for the home
merchant
The Lions lent the move their en
couragement and stood ready to
join with the business men of Hepp
ner in promoting whatever plan Is
finally decided upon.
Following the meeting at the ho
tel Tuesday evening, called by the
Lions to consider proposed laws
affecting the school system of the
state, to which reference is made
In another column, Mr. Goodman
was asked to take charge, atfa he
again explained to some length
suggested plans. There was a splen
did representation of the business
firms and others Interested in the
proposals, and the question was
given liberal and earnest discussion.
No definite plan seemed to present
itself, but growing out of the dis
cussion and the suggestions offered
a committee of seven was left to
be appointed by Mayor Anderson,
whose duty It will be to put the
suggestions into a completed and
definite shape, and another meet
ing will be called as soon as they
have formulated their report. No
doubt the matter will then come
up in such shape as to be workable,
and the plan can oe adopted.
According to the plan as proposed
there would be an Issue of scrip to
the amount of $10,000. The man
ner of security and the date of re
demption will no doubt be worked
out by the committee. While there

NEW FARM CROPS
SHOWING PROMISE
Growers Shower State College
With Inquiries Regarding
Present Prospects.
What of the new crops, and what
of possibilities for some little used
older ones? That farmers are al
ways keenly interested In these
matters Is shown by the high pro
portion of inquiries dealing with
new varieties and species that find
their way to the Oregon Experi
ment station offices at Corvallis.
In the farm crops field there are
several of considerable interest this
year. Some are not actually new
but are crops not heretofore wide
ly used. One such is the proso type
of millet which affords another re
seeding possibility, for western Or
egon, says Harry Schoth, federal
agronomist at O. S. C.
Millet is a good feed for cattle
and sheep and is especially good
for summer sheep pasutre. It also
makes excellent poultry feed. The
proso millets are apparently more
satisfactory than the fox-tail types
because they produce more heavily
for both forage and seed and ma
ture earlier, says Schoth. Forage
yields have averaged more than
three tons to the acre in Oregon
with seed yields from 25 to 30 bush
els. Early Fortune, White French,
Yellow Manitoba and Hegira are
satisfactory varieties.

Mass Meeting Tuesday Hears Dls-
cussion of Measures Pending
In Oregon Legislature.
In a communication to the Lions
club Monday, Mrs. Lucy E. Rod
gers called attention to the several
bills now before the legislature at
Salem, having for their purpose
radical changes in the existing
school laws. After setting out fully
her objections to the DroDosed leg
islation, Mrs. Rodgers asked the
cooperation of the club In securing
the sentiment of the community re
garding these measures. Time did
not permit a discussion of the bills
before the club at their Monday
luncheon, and It was arranged to
call a meeting of the citizens for
Tuesday evening at the club room.
In response to this call, and the
further fact that it was intended
to discuss further the proposition
of issuing scrip that had also been
presented to the club for consider
ation by D. T. Goodman, there was
a large attendance of representa
tive business men and citizens
present
As the Lions had sponsored the
meeting especially for disni
of the school bills, their president,
Spencer Crawford, nreatded Hfr
Rodgers being present, was called
on to present the subject, and feel
ing that S. E. Notson could handle
the subject better, she called nn
him to state the obiecta in h

forceful statements of Mr. Notson,

Other measures were touched on
by E. F. Bloom, city superintendent
oi acnooia. These -were House
Bills 78, 81 and 155. He especially
opposed the bill that will do away
with districts paying transportation
of high school pupils, showing that
this would hamper the students of
the outlvine- districts In flniv,i
high school. Economy measures
that hit at the very heart of the
primary educational system r.t

very seriously a structure that It
has taken years to build up, is a

We give herewith th resolution.
unanimously adopted:
Whereas, bills have been intro
duced in the legislature to amend
the school law so M tn yaA,nn ,
ivuuvb u,g
minimum school term to six months
and to reduce the minimum salary
to oe paia to teachers to $60.00 per
month; and,
Whereas. It Is evident that .v.
amendments would lower the effi
ciency of all the schools which took
advantage of such amendments,
not only because the term would
be shortened, but because It would
inevitably result i
of inferior teachers; and.
Whereas, the future nf the .t.
and nation depends upon an intelli

of the rising generation demands

as much tralnine- as win
them to grapple with the difficult
and complex problems which beset
our civilization; and,
Wfiereas. in our nninlnn
at the expense of efficiency Is the
iui&ti. extravagance; therefore,
Be it Resolved by this mass
meeting Of the citizens nf Wivrw.
Oregon, that it is the sense of this
meeting that these proposed amend
ments should not be adopted; that
they offer a false economy: and
that while there must he p..,.
in public expenditures, our public
ocuuois snouia not be crippled by
economy until economy in all other
public enterprises has reached its
extreme limit.
The meeting also, on motion, went
on record as being opposed to
House Bills No. 78, No. 81 and No.
155. This motion was also adopted
by unanimous vote, and Mr. Not
son was instructed to prepare and
forward copies to our representa
tives In the legislature.
