BILL WOULD AMEND
(Continued from First Page)
ty and city officers, in view of the
asserted fact that 90 percent of the
amount of money raised from prop
erty taxes is expended -by these lo
cal governmental units. While rec
ognizing the right of "home rule"
the governor said some check was
necessary in the light of past spend
ing orgies by illy controlled local
administrations. The governor's
message was referred to the as
sessment and taxation committee
in the house.
One bill has already been passed
by the house after this trend. It
is House Bill 3, introduced by Rep
resentative Gordon, which would
enforce a 20 percent reduction in
the expenditures of all local tax
spending units under the proposed
budget estimates for the ensuing
year. The senate now has the bill
for consideration. A great number
of remonstrances against the bill's
passage have come from over the
state, in which is expressed the
opinion that the bill wtmld be im
possible of operation and that it
would be disastrous in Its effects by
lowering the taxation base almost
beyond repair and by hindering ef
ficiency of the schools and other
local governmental activities.
To meet revenue requirements of
the state, and assist the counties
as well, it is expected most reli
ance will be given to a number of
tax measures thrown into the hop
per by the taxation and revenues
committee this week. Included is
a general sales tax bill modeled af
ter that of special session fame
along with another sales tax bill
of similar nature, except that the
new bill provides for a one percent
tax on gross sales to dealers in ad
dition to the two percent tax on
gross sales of personal services
and tangible property direct to
consumer. Certain exemptions are
allowed in each bill and both car
ry a property tax offset provision.
Then there are three income tax
measures, a corporation excise tax
measure and an inheritance tax
measure, all aimed to provide some
additional revenue. The merits
and demerits of all these is ex
pected to be aired at a public hear
ing in the house chamber tonight,
presided over by members of the
Outstanding actions of the as
sembly this week were the passage
by the senate of the "Branch
Banking" act by a heavy majority
and passage by the house of the
"Basic Science" bill. Heated de
bates occurred on each of these
measures after having been aired
thoroughly in public hearings, so
that the action on each may be
taken as fairly indicative of the
final chance of enactment of each.
Probably no less exciting in its life
in the senate was the Thomas pub
lic utilities regulation bill which
finally got past the senate after be
ing a football of several commit
tees and being amended and re
amended until it was hardly rec-
To fish or not to fish also had its
first inning this week when the
house refused to open the Willam
ette river to . commercial fishing,
inis has not been taken as an in
dication of the chances of another
bill to reopen the upper Columbia
to commercial fishing, as the debate
on the Willamette bill gave evi
dence that some who strongly op
posed the Willamette bill would
not have the same grounds for op
posing the Columbia bill and that
they would probably support it
It may also be of interest to note
in, connection with game matters
that the house this week voted to
open the season on elk in Union
and Umatilla counties for a special
license at $5. Dr. Best, one of the
sponsors of the bill, declared such
action necessary to keep the elk
from becoming too great a nuisance
and little opposition developed
Still coming up for action is the
revised game code in which there
is beginning to deveop considerable
Pasture Gives Cheapest
Gams in Lamb Feeding
When lamb prices are at such a
low point as they have been the
past year or so, making the top
grade in marketing is exceptionally
important in getting returns that
will approach the cost of produc
tion. Investigation of the grade of
Oregon lambs actually marketed at
Portland, made by the animal hus
bandry department of the Oregon
state college experiment station, re
vealed that only 34.5 per cent of
those coming from western Oregon
were fat enough to class as top
Of those falling in lower grades
47 jer cent were too thin, 8 1-2 per
cent were too heavy and 10 per
cent were of inferior breeding or
were nob castrated or docked. ,
"Unquestionably the proper feed
ing of lambs from birth to market
ing could make a large part of the
47 per cent of thin lambs fat enough
to bring the top prices," says O. M.
Nelson, specialist in sheep at the
station. "Pasture is the cheapest
feed available, and while extensive
feeding of grain will produce ideal
market lambs it materially increas
es the cost of production.
"Lambs sucking ewes on good
pasture will often make an average
daily gain of a half a pound a day
without grain, in fact college flocks
have gained as much an three
fourths pound per day on rape pas
ture. Cover pasture is Ideal for
finishing lambs. A comparison made
of clover with native pasture by the
college showed that lambs being fin
ished gained 39 per cent more on
clover than those on native sod.
"Another test made by the exper
iment station was with a bunch of
thin lambs fed during the summer.
Some were fed in the dry lot, some
were fed grain and sown-sod pas
ture, and some were run on raDe
and received no grain. The lambs
running on the rape with no grain
far outgained arid were ready for
market long before the other lambs.
Those fed grain in the dry lot made
the poorest gains,' Nelson explain

The PerU of Victory.
"Then was Jesus led up of the
Spirit into the wilderness to be
tempted of the devil." Matt 4-1. ,
When was this that Jesus was
led up into the wilderness? When?
It was Immediately following His
baptism, when "the heavens were
opened unto Him and He saw the
Spirit of God descending like a
dove, and lighting upon Him."
The greatest temptations we ever
have often come just following our
very highest and holiest exper
iences. "Thou wast slain in thine high
places." And it is in the steep and
the high places of life that the
steep and dangerous precipice of
temptation is most often found.
Yes, men often become the vic
tims of their victories: "The next
most dreadful thing to a battle lost
is a battle won," said Wellington.
The peril of victory, is, if any
thing, greater than the peril of de
feat. The defeated man, if he has
any proper grit and courage, will
arm himself again and renew the
battle more determined than ever
to win. While the victorious man
is often tempted to be satisfied with
his victory and to forego further
battles. Often, indeed, he becomes
too self-confident, which robs him
of the impetus of proper prepara
tion for not only keeping what he
has already won, but also for new
battles which he must constantly
face. , ,
Perhaps the greatest peril of vic
tory Is the sometimes indolent re-

Mrs. C. R. Rinley. Director of Music
Again we enter the month when
this nation takes note of the birth
days of Abraham Lincoln and
George Washington. One has been
known as the father of his country
and the other is its preserver.
Washington led the way through
those trying, testing, battling days
when the nation was born. Lincoln
endured the fearful strain when
the foundations were violently at
tacked from within. The suffering
of both men was terrible, well nigh
immeasurable. Both these men
were guided by unchanging prin
ciples rather than by the fads of
the time. They belonged to that
company of strong men who ap
pear through the ages, who believe
that there are two things which
greatly affect the thoughts, aitions
and influence of men. When con
flict arises between opinion and
principle, opinion must go to the
wall and principle must be obeyed.
Human leaders have been divided
into two classes, those who follow
ed principle and prevailed; those
who followed opinion and failed.
These two men eminently belonged
to the first class. In our present
time there is a great tendency to
follow opinion, and already great
crashes and clashes have followed.
Both Washington and Lincoln
were Christian men. Their princi
ples rested back in the person and
teachings of Christ There are
many lessons for our time from
both men. We will do well to take
heed at this time to the lives of
these great men.
A hearty welcome awaits you at
all our services.
