THE DIES 1ST TO
Admiral's Club Rejoices
Big Seaport Forseen.
DR. BAXTER SPEAKS
Cooperation With Inland Water.
ways Program Given; Notson
Reports to Local Lions Club.
Realization of many hopes and
pians or me Admiral's club was
celebrated at 6:30 o'clock breakfast
at The Dalles Monday morning. For
ten years the "Admirals" have been
working for development of the Co
lumbia river, and partly as their
achievement has come the dam and
sealocks at Bonneville which are
expected to hurry the day when The
.Dalles will become a seaport, and
the inland empire will be benefitted
by lowered transportation costs.
In response to an invitation from
the Lions club at The Dalles, C. J.
D. Bauman, president, S. E. Notson
and Dr. A. D. McMurdo of the local
Lions club attended the breakfast
and Mr. Notson reported it at the
club's Monday noon luncheon.
Furnishing color to the occasion
was a large drawing hung on the
wall, giving a futuristic Impression
of The Dalles waterfront when It
becomes a seaport, and the munici
pal band of Bend, clad in "middy"
uniforms. Emblematic anchors
were presented to two leading citi
zens of The Dalles who have been
prominent in the river development
campaign. Dr. Baxter, president of
Willamette university, gave the
main address, in which he reflected
a comprehensive knowledge of the
plan of development of the Colum
bia river and the benefits which
may be expected to be derived
"Service is the rent we pay for
the space we fill," is a quotation
from Dr. Baxter's address cited by
Mr. Notson, on which Dr. Baxter
enlarged to bring out that it is a
poor type of service which is given
only In the spirit of rent payment.
Faith, which he defined as courag
eous reason, is an adjunct to the
type of service which is bringing
about development of the Columbia
Dr. Baxter came to Oregon but
recently from Los Angeles. There
he had a part in the work of de
velopment of the port of Los An
geles, and he drew from an anec
dote of a meeting in connection with
that project in which it was said,
"Los Angeles should have little
trouble making a seaport. All that
Is needed to be done Is to lay a pipe
line out into the Pacific, and If you
can suck as hard as you can blow,
the seaport will be yours."
Mr. Notson reported these and
several other snappy points of Dr.
Baxter's address which marked It
as one of much interest and bril
liance. The Dalles folks expect to move
next for channel development be
low the Bonneville dam to facilitate
the progress of large seagoing ves
sels, Mr. Notson said. But they
have also promised support to the
program of the Inland Waterways
association looking to the larger
development of the river Inland
which is needed to bring the ton
nage to The Dalles when the ships
are able to dock there.
The club's cooperative committee
for the state woolgrowers conven
tion on January 14-15 reported that
the time for the broadcast over
KOAC had been postponed from
January 9 to January 10 at 6:30 p
m. Bert Johnson of lone was a

BEACH IN SYMPHONY
Fewer Bureaus, Commissions Asked
in State; Believe Million Dollar
Deficit Can be Wiped Out
Ontario, Oregon, Jan. 2 Not
only is agricultural Oregon strong
ly opposed to the imposition of any
new sales taxes or any change in
the existing tax structure, but it
will likewise urge upon the incom
ing administration the consolidation
and elimination of over-lapping or
useless bureaus, commissions and
other functions of government.
This was the assertion here todav
of H. C. Boyer, acting president of
the Oregon Producers and Shippers
association. Mr. Boyer said that
reports from county chairmen of
the organization throughout the
state urged the association to stand
as a unit for every possible curtail
ment of state expense.
"Members of this organization
believe the coming legislature
should adopt a budget which will
permit all needed branches of state
government to function, but a bud
get which will be entirely void of
trills and extravagances," he said.
"W believe this can be done with
out crippling or impairing any
needed service. We simply must
practice that same economy in gov
ernment that we have been com
pelled to adopt as Individuals.
"We are advised that the present
state deficit is aproximately $1,000,
ooo as against a deficit of three
times that amount four years ago,
we believe this deficit can and
should be wiped out entirely within
the next fiscal year if our legisla
tors will use every reasonable pre
caution to safeguard the interests
of the taxpaying public. This can
not be done if we are to witness a
series of raids upon the public
"Because of shattered markets
and lower prices for our products.
agricultural Oregon has been hard
put to survive the past few years.
One thing which has helped us over
me rougn spots during the past two
years particularly, has been the re
duced taxes due to the material re
ductions in the cost of operating
our state government. We believe
this same rigid economy should be
continued. In fact, we insist it must
be continued if Oregon is to throw
off its present debt burden and if
Oregon industries are to regain
their economic balance."

As State Campaign Ends
This week sees Oregon's Register-
nour-Baby campaign at its climax,
with the State Board of Health
asking that every father and moth
er with a child not more than a year
oia report Its birth immediately on
a uensus Bureau card.
Checking of cards mailed to
Washington, D. C, by Oregon par
ents since the campaign opened De
cember 6, began here Monday. A
force of six persons was put to
work on the task. , Each card will
be compared to the records of births
which have come to the Board in
the regular way, and when a baby
is tound who was not so reported
the deficiency will once be made
up and steps taken to see why it oc
For this reason in order that a
complete check on the routine sys

all eligible parents send cards re

Checking started with 5000 cards
on hand and Dr. Frederick D.

asking the people of the state to

American Legion Auxiliary units,

every family has a card, and that it

Two-Cent Check Tax
Removed January 1st
J. W. Maloney, collector of inter
nal revenue, has announced that the
federal tax of two cents on bank
checks will not be effective after
December 31, 1934.
"The revenue Act of 1934 provid
ed for the repeal of the tax on bank
checks, drafts or orders for the pay
ment oi money, drawn on a bank,
banker, or trust company, at the
close of business December 31,
1934," stated Collector Malonev,
"but information received at this
office Indicates that many attorneys
and other interested parties have
the impression that other taxes im
posed by the Revenue Act of 1932
were repealed on June 30, 1934.
"I would call particular attention
to the fact that the increased rates
of stamp tax on issues and trans
fers of capital stock, the stamp tax
on deeds of conveyance, the tax on
safe deposit box rentals and the tax
on all admissions selling for 41
cents or more will be in effect as
provided under the present laws,
until July 1, 1935. The only taxes
which have been repealed are the
taxes on candy, soft drinks, and the
use of boats."
