WILLOWS GRANGE NEWS.
More than sixty people attended
the lecture hour program at Wil
lows grange hall in Cecil last Sat
urday evening. The program open
ed by singing of two songs by the
audience, which was followed by a
reading, "Biographical Sketch of
Wm. Saunders," by Opal Cool; a
poem, "God, When You Tho't of a
Pine Tree," read by Mary Lundell.
Then there was a ten minutes' dis
cussion and explanation of the truck
and bus bill by J. O. Kincaid; song,
"So Say We All of Us," by the au
dience. The main feature of the program
was a talk by Senator Sam H.
Brown, candidate for governor. Mr.
w w , i
Brown's talk touched on the Fra
zier bill, truck and bus bill, ice
cream bill, public utilities, state
banking bill, and told in a general
way of legislative doing at the state
house. Mr. Brown is a farmer of
Marion county and has been a mem
ber of the state legislature for the
past twenty years. He believes that
the hydro-electric energy of the
state of Oregon should be retained
and preserved as the common heri
tage of the people. Its ownership
development and distribution should
remain in their hands and they
should directly benefit therefrom
by receiving it at cost. He also be
lieves that the "Blue Sky Law"
should be made more stringent and
be amended so as to make it impos
sible for the sale of spurious bonds
to the unsuspecting public with re
sultant hardships and poverty to
the victims. He believes in the re
habilitation of state and county
owned lands. All public owned land
whether it be agricultural, grazing,
or timber, or suitable for reforesta
tion purposes, should be classified.
The land should be reasonably
priced and sold on very easy terms
to actual settlers, with low interest,
thereby placing it upon the tax rolls
at the earliest possible moment Mr.
Brown also believes in the main
tenance of strictest conomy, plac
ing state employees under civil ser
vice, and the abolishment of the of
fice of budget director.
"The Gleaner" was read by Hila
Timm; a skit, "Hi-lights in Farm
ing" was put on by the wives of the
agricultural committeemen; "Oh,
Smile," was sung by the audience as
a closing song.
Election of subordinate officers
was held at the business meeting,
and reports mailed to the state
grange. A. L. Lundell was elected
by Willows grange as a member on
the county cooperative shippers or
ganization being formed. The coun-
