made at the time the state levy

Whom the Gods would destroy
they first make mad.
In the present instance the Gods
were diseuised as the Republican
members of the House. Whether
thev had anvthine to do with stir
ring up the strife in the ranks of
the Democratic majority they cer
tainly made the most of the oppor
tunity to grab off the big end of the
With the Democratic majority
hopelessly split on the question of
the Speakership the Republican
minority steeped into the breach
with offers of assistance for a con
sideration. Earl Hill, of Lane coun
ty, minority leader, it seems, went
into a huddle with the small nana
ful of Democrats of the House who
refused to Dlav ball with their fel
Jow Democrats who had some 21
votes on the dotted line in support
of Howard Latourette for Speaker.
Under the circumstances with the
followers of Representative Gra
ham refusing to go into a party
caucus to settle on a speaker it
became necessary for Latourette
forces to look to some Republican
support if they were to win and
Sunday night's caucus at which
Latourette was elected for the
speakership by a 29-28 vote was one
of the wierdest exhibitions of par
liamentary maneuvering ever wit
nessed at a legislative caucus in
this state. Just what the Republi
can support cost the Latourette
forces may never be known but the
fact remains that in the balloting
for desk jobs that night the Repub
licans came away with four of the
best jobs in the House bag and
several minor plums a most signi
ficant situation in itself and one
which became all the more signifi
cant when it is coupled up with the
fact that the republican functionar
ies were elected by almost the same
vote as was the Speaker.
Another significant development
in connection with the organization
of the House on Monday wa3 the
unseating of Representative Lew
Wallace, a Democrat, in spite of the
fact that the Democrats held a
majoriay of four votes in the lower
house. Rumors about the legisla
tive lobby has it that the seating
of Representative Farrell, a Re
publican, was the price demanded
by Hill in return for the republican
support of Henry Semon, a Dem
ocrat, who seems to have had the
speakership "in the bag" except
for the fact that someone forgot
to sew up the bag and some of his
support escaped just enough to
cost him the honor.
The contest between Ashby C.
Dickson, democrat, and Nate Boo
dy, republican, for the senate seat
formerly held by Dickson, was de
cided on strictly partisan terms.
Boody was seated by a vote of 17
to 12, Senator Spaulding of Marion
joining with the 11 democrats in
support of Dickson with all of the
other republicans "voting 'er"
straight for Boody.
Failure of the House to organize
in time made it necessary to post
pone the delivery of Governor Mar
tin's message from Monday after
noon until Tuesday morning.
Senator Allen Bynon has announ
ced his intention of sponsoring a
bill relieving the counties of the
burden of old age pensions and
placing the entire burden on the
state. He has already introduced
a bill which would reduce the age
of pensioners from 70 years to 65
In spite of the plea made by
Governor Martin that the business
of the session be confined to the
capitol reconstruction program in
dications are that there will be a
veritable flood of bills introduced
covering every subject
Governor Martin wants the legis
lature to confine its deliberations to
a consideration of a new state cap
itol, make the session as brief as
possible and hold the expenses down
to a minimum. He told the mem
bers so in his message delivered to
the House and Senate meeting in
joint session in the Salem armory.
Social security legislation and
other problems, he declared, can
wait for the next regular session
which convenes in January, 1937.
Endorsing the recommendations
of his state planning board for a
new capitol to cost approximately
$3,500,000 the governor told the
lawmakers that the state's share
of this cost $1.925,000 can be fi
nanced either through a direct ap
propriation from the state's general
fund spread over a period of three
or more years, or from liquor profits.
Declaring himself as "unalterably
opposed to the erection of a capitol
on the old, narrow and inadequate
site," the governor told the legisla
tors that additional land should be
secured for the new capitol at this
time. Six possible alternatives were
suggested by the governor in his
message: the campus of Willamette
university; Candaleria Heights;
Capitol hill, comprising nine resi
dential blocks in south Salem; the
Bush pasture, also in south Salem;
expansion of the present site by the
purchase of additional ground to the
north, now covered by residences;
expansion eastward, also by the
purchase of residential property
Of the six sites the governor Ta-
vors the university campus because
of its location in close proximity to
other state buildings. This property
can be had, he pointed out, for $850,
000, of which the city of Salem has
tentatively agreed to provide $125,
000. As his second choice the gov
ernor recommended purchase of the
96-acre Candaleria Heights tract
south of Salem.
The governor recommended the
creation of a non-political capitol
commission of five competent and
outstanding citizens, to handle the
details connected with the capitol

on the fourth floor of the state of

quarters of the bonus commission
have been completely remodeled for

Salem. Capitols to the right of
them, capitols to the left of them,
That's what confronted the Oregon
legislators as they assembled here
Monday morning to open their spec
ial session. A pictorial display of
every capitol building in the Uni
ted States together with informa
tion as to its cost, size, date of com
pletion and the size of the site on
which it is located.
The display was prepared by Miss
Harriet C. Long, state librarian, In
an effort to assist the legislators in
their task of planning for a new
state house for Oregon.
All of the state capitols are
shown from the humble little two
story structure at Carson City, Ne
vada, occupying a single acre of
ground to that last word in modern
capitol architecture, the skyscraper
capitol of Nebraska at Lincoln cov
ering four city blocks and costing
The pictorial display reveals the
fact that 40 of the 48 state capitols
are surmounted by a dome and
that for the most part the struct
ures are of the conventional type
with wings and pillars. Most of
the domeless capitols are of com
paratively recent construction, In
cluding those of Nebraska, Louisia
na, North Dakota and Oklahoma.
Information carried by the dis
play reveals the fact that only eight
state capitols occupy sites as small
as that provided by Oregon. These
are Florida with 3.67 acres; Geor
gia. 4.5 acres; Idaho, 3.46 acres
Maryland, 4.8 acres; Nevada, 1 acre
Tennessee, o acres; New Hamp
shire. 3 acres, and Wyoming, -
acres. Contrasted with these are
the more spacious sites such as that
of North Dakota which has 160
acres; Iowa with 93 acres and Okla
homa with 77 acres.

Corn-Hog Growers Cast
Votes Saturday, Oct. 26
By their votes on Saturday, Oc
tober 26, hog producers of Oregon
and all other states will reveal to
national officials of the AAA wheth
er or not there is enough Interest
and demand for a 1936 corn-hog
program to justify the adjustment
administration in offering such a
program. Such is the word sent
out to extension officials in Oregon
and elsewhere by Claude R. Wick
ard, chief of the AAA corn-hog sec
tion. Every county in Oregon in which
a corn-hog control association was
formed has provided a polling place
which will be open all day Saturday
from' 8 o'clock in the morping to
10 o'clock at night In Morrow
county the polling place is the
county agent's office in Heppner.
All operators and owners of
farms which produced corn or hogs
in 1935 may vote in the nationwide
referendum, whether they signed
1934 or 1935 contracts or not, the
local corn-hog committee announc
es. Each eligible person is entitled
to only one vote regardless of the
size of his operations, the number
of farms handled or their location.
Printed ballots have been distri
buted and these are to be deposited
personally when possible, though
sealed mail ballots with the voter's
signature on the outside of the
envelope will be accepted where the
grower connot cast his ballot in
In voting a grower merely votes
yes or no on the question whether
any corn-hog program should be
offered for 1936. It is not a vote
on a particular plan, nor does one's
vote bind him -to sign or not to sign
in case a program is developed.
The referendum Is the second
step by Washington officials In de
ciding on the future of the corn

national hearing at Washington las
month at which farm leaders urged
a new program which would allow
for expansion next year of hog pro
duction while holding a check on
The farm representatives argued
that the stage is set perfectly now
for a serious over-production of
corn because of the drouth-reduced
livestock herds. This, according to
past experience, will be followed by

cheap corn, bringing a return of
