CAPITAL MC W O
Capitol Bill Okeh.
Fisher for Congress.
Governor Vetoes Two.
By A. L. LINDBECK
Apparent discrepancies in the
state capitol bill are not serious and
will not require court action to
clarify the Intent of the lawmakers
in the opinion of Ralph Moody, as
sistant attorney general and legal
advisor to Governor Martin during
the special session. Conflicting sec
tions in the act pointed out by the
governor in his letter transmitting
the measure to the state department
were described by Moody as the re
sult of hasty legislation but in no
wise fatal to the act
A bill which would have author
ized the board of control to pool
state owned automobiles and exer
cise some supervision over their use
was killed in the House by one vote.
Department heads who objected to
the proposed pool are said to have
been active in lobbying against the
measure which the board of con
trol believes would have resulted in
annual savings of thousands of dol
lars by preventing the present abuse
in use of state owned automobiles.
Contracts for improvements and
new buildings at four state institu
tions are to be awarded by the
board of control next week. The
improvements will include a two
story ward building at the state
hospital for insane; a nurses' home
and a third story to the new hospi
tal at the state tuberculosis hospi
tal; a one story Are proof dormi
tory at the school for blind, and a
nurses' home at the eastern Oregon
tuberculosis hospital at The Dalles.
The building program will involve
the expenditure of more than $390,-
000 of which approximately 45 per
cent will be supplied by the federal
government through PWA grants.
Many are offered but only nine
will be chosen. Referring, of course,
to the state capitol reconstruction
commission. Governor Martin,
President Corbett and Speaker Lat
ourette, each of whom will name
three members of the commission,
are being deluged with applications
and recommendations for the posi
tion of commissioner.
Reports from over the state in
dicate that most of the lawmakers
have spent a busy week alibying to
their constituents and passing the
buck for any mistakes of the ses
sion on to their 'colleagues.
Friends of Walter Fisher of Rose
burg are grooming the Douglas
county state senator as a demo
cratic candidate for Congress from
the first Oregon district The boom
was started during the closing week
of the legislative session where
Fisher gained prominence as the
author of the capitol reconstruction
bill ultimately adopted by the ses
sion. Fisher has served several
terms in the state legislature, first
in the House and later in the Sen
ate. In addition to his legislative
service Fisher is a World War vet
eran, active in the work of the
American Legion, was until recent
ly a member of the World War
Veterans State Aid commission, and
is in the mercantile business in
Roseburg. His popularity at home
is attested to first by the fact that
he was elected over his republican
opponent from a county which is
overwhelmingly republican and
again by his recent appointment to
the senate by a republican board of
Jerrold Owen, secretary to the
state bonus commission, reports the
sale of 154 properties for an aggre
gate of $383,489 during the first ten
months of the current year. This,
he points out represents an increase
in sales of more than 300 percent
over the record for the entire year
of 1934 and is regarded as a fairly
accurate index to the Improvement
of business conditions generally
throughout the state.
The state tax levy which will
probably be made public this week
will provide for the limit that can
be raised within the constitutional
restrictions and some $600,000 great
er than the levy for 1935. Increased
Income tax collections, however,
will cover the increase in the levy
so that the load to be borne by
property owners will be no greater,
if as great than the property tax
under the 1935 levy.
Although the commissioners who
are to supervise construction of the
new capitol have not yet been se
lected speculation is already being
indulged in as to the type of build
ing which will replace the old cap
itol and the number of buildings to
be constructed. Legislators in dis
cussing the problem in committee
and on the floor were emphatic in
their demands that adequate pro
vision be made for the state library
either in a separate building or in
more commodious quarters in the
capitol building. Sentiment among
the lawmakers also inclined toward
a state house of conventional de
sign dome and wings and colon
nades rather than a more mod
ernistic building of the skyscraper
Only two of the 75 bills passed
by the special session of the state
legislature failed to run the gaunt
let of the governor's office to be
come part and parcel of the Ore
gon statutes. The two bills vetoed
by the governor include the Burke
bill repealing an act of the regular
session making the payment of stu
dent body fees at state Institutions
compulsory, and a bill sponsored by
the Multnomah county delegation
placing all Janitors employed in the
Portland schools under civil ser
vice. In vetoing the Burke bill the
governor pointed out that there was
no act to repeal, the bill having been
held up when it was referred to the
voters. The other measure was ve
toed at the request of the Portland
Nine bills were filed with the sec
retary of state minus the signature
of the governor. Those included
Senate bill 54 jproviding for the con
struction of a new capitol, the gov
ernor pointing out a number of ob
jections to the bill from his point
of view. The agricultural market
ing act and the bakery code bill as
well as the unemployment insurance
act all of which are of questionable
constitutionality, also failed to gain
the governor's signature.
Attorneys representing restaurant
and hotel operators appearing be
fore Governor Martin to urge his
veto of the new agricultural mar
keting act declared that the meas
ure would be taken into court at the
first opportunity if it was permitted
to become a law.
It cost the House of representa
tives $1141 in clerk hire for the
mailing and distribution of its 91
bills. The senate with 83 bills spent
only $400 for the same service. The
House was also much more liberal
in the distribution of patronage
than the senate in other respects,
providing chief clerks for 14 com
mittees whereas the senate got by
with only five chief clerks for its
Representative C. P. Haight drew
the largest mileage allowance for
attendance upon the special session.
Haight traveled 1005 miles from his
home at Canyon City and return
for which he received $150.70 at the
rate of 15 cents a mile.
Notable Program Ready
For Wheat League Meet
Pendleton. Prominent national
and state leaders are scheduled to
appear at the annual Eastern Ore
gon Wheat league meeting held in
this city December 6 and 7, accord
ing to program information issued
by Mack Hoke, Pendleton, president
of the league, and Charley Smith,
Coming from Washington, D. C,
is C. C. Conser, who will represent
the division of grains in the AAA.
Mr. Conser, a former Montana far
mer, was at the August wheat ad
justment conference in Boise, where
he made a favorable impression up
on delegates attending from west
ern states. Conser is a man who
was taken to Washington because
of his practical knowledge of grain
fanning, according to Smith, and
he has proved invaluable in helping
to keep the wheat program one of
the most workable yet undertaken.
Walter Pierce, congressman from
the eastern Oregon district, who
has had the task of promoting ag
ricultural legislation in the lower
house of Congress desired by Ore
gon farmers, has accepted an invi
tation to appear on the program
and tell of the national farm situa

Blanket Buying Demands
Care to Obtain Quality
When the homemaker goes out
to buy warmth and comfort for hec
family In the form of blankets for
winter use, there are certain points
sne will need to consider if she is
to be sure of getting full value for
her money, says Mrs. Azalea Sager
extension specialist in clothing and
textiles at Oregon State college.
Blanket manufacturers are not
required by law to label their blan
kets as to content, Mrs. Sager points
out, Dut if they are labeled the In
formation must be accurate.
For those that are not labeled, the
homemaker has only her own ob
servation and knowledge to guide
tier in making selections. Warmth
in blankets is determined prlnci
pally by the percentage of wool and
the amount of napping. All wool is,
of course, the most desirable where
warmth is the chief consideration,
If a blanket does not contain more
that 25 percent wool, it is likely to
be no warmer than a good quality
cotton blanket and will be less
durable, says Mrs. Sager.
Loose ends of fiber pulled to tho
surface are called napping. While
this adds warmth, too much nap
ping will weaken the weave, so it Is
a good idea to hold the blanket to
the light to observe closeness and
evenness of the weave, Mrs. Sager
explains. The foundation clotn
chould reveal a simple twill weave.
Durability of the weave and nap
may be tested by pulling gently on
the nap or rubbing the surface
briskly with the hands. If fibers
of good length and strength have
been used, very little nap will come
off, but if the amount of lint re
moved is considerable, It is an In
dication that the blanket will soon

lose its warmth and wear thin in
Blankets that are adequate in
length wear better, as pulling puts
a strain on the yarns and weakens
them, says Mrs. Sager. For double
beds she recommends that they be
not less than 72 In. x 84 in., while
80 x 90 is not too large, and for
single beds 60 x 70 is a desirable
size. When buying blankets on a
bargain counter it is well to make
certain that they are of the desired
size, she suggests.
Sateen bindings are the most
practical and satisfactory, Mrs. Sa
ger says, but it is well to be sure
that it has two rows of stitching,
one close to the edge and one farth
er back, and that the ends of the
binding are turned back at least
two inches or well finished with a
non-ravelling overlook stitch.
New Corn - Hog Features
Discussed With AAA Men
A preliminary outline of what the
new corn-hog adjustment contracts
are likely to contain has been re
ceived from Washington by the O.
S. C. extension service. Latest news
tells of the result of a conference
of producers and state agricultural
specialists held in Washington this
month where provisions were dis
Recommendations from that con
ference include approval of a two
year voluntary contract Instead of
another for a single year, and one
which will permit increase in hog
production this next year up to the
full amount of the producers base.
That would mean a permitted 30
percent increase, though such an
amount Is not expected by those
familiar with the situation, who
say that the drouth-enforced Haul
dation of breeding stock makes it
impossible for any major hog pro
ducing state to attain this maxi
mum next year.
Recommended corn adjustment Is
about the same as at present, the
proposal being to allow benefits on
an optional adjustment of from 10
to 30 percent, with each signer com
pelled to plant at least 25 percent
of his base. The plan Includes
keeping the adjustment payments
at 35c a bushel for the estimated
yield on the acres retired.
The plan for making hog pay
ments will be entirely changed if
the new recommendations are
adopted. A flat adjustment pay
ment of $2.50 for each hog produced
up to half of the signer's base is the
proposal. While no benefit pay
ments would be made on anything
above 50 percent, the grower could
produce and sell any amount up to
his 100 percent.
The group unanimously approved
using the appraisal method of es
tablishing corn-hog bases, so that
equitable bases may be assigned to
producers regardless of past par
ticipation In a contract Commu
nity committeemen would be given
more power under this plan to make
assignments within the limits of
the county quota.
The proposed plan is designed to
hold corn production in bounds and
increase hog production as rapidly
as possible without letting it go to
former ruinous extremes deemed
detrimental to both producers and

FBANK PARKER T' Tgl
Wildcat . . . Ventures Out
One of my neighbors, Merico
Lacoli, saw a strange-looking beast
on the grounds of the Berkshire
Country Club the other day. He
had his gun with him, so he took a
shot and brought down a 20-pound
wildcat Old timers up our way
say it is the first wildcat seen in
Berkshire in 30 years.
There's still a lot of wild, unset
tled country, even in New England.
Up on top of a rocky spur of West
Stockbridge Mountain there Is said
to be a herd of wild goats. I've
never seen them, but venturesome
boys sometimes scale the crags and
bring back reports of being men
aced by fierce, long-horned, bearded
billygoats. Now and then hunters
up our way sight a black bear, and
every so often we have a wolf
scare, while the deer seem to be in
creasing in numbers.
I hope this country never gets so
crowded that there won't be room
for all the wild things as well as all
Termites . . moving north
The other day Fred Shaw and I
went up into my farmhouse attic to
see about winter-proofing the gable
ends. "Say, did you know you've
got termites in your rafters?" asked
Fred. He pointed to half-a-dozen
mounds of sawdust on the attic
Sure enough, the little white ants
were at work there. I thought I'd
stopped 'em, seven years ago, when
I found they'd eaten away one of
the old hand-hewn 12 x 12 sills that
the old house rests on. Now I've
got to spend a lot more money,
maybe put on a whole new roof, if
I don't want the house to fall down
on our heads.
Termites have been working their
way north from the Gulf of Mexico
for twenty years. Now, the expert
Dug men tell me, they re busy even
in Canada. They get inside a piece
of timber and eat the heart out of
it, leaving it only a hollow shell.
Looks to me as if we've got to
figure out new ways to keep insects
from licking the human race and
taking possession of the world.
Germany . . . holds cash
A New York friend of mine of
German descent, owns with his
mother, a number of houses in Ber
lin. A Berlin bank manages the
property and collects the rents. My
friend can't get any of the money,
tor tne Mitier Government won't
let cash go out of Germany except
to pay for imported goods.
Last Summer his mother got per
mission to take $3,000 out, if she
would come to Berlin in person and
satisfy the authorities she needed
the money to live on. She and her
son got as far as Paris, where the
old lady slipped and broke her hip,
She couldn't go to Berlin, and the
money is still there, doing nobody
My friend's account of that ex
perience brought home sharply to
me tne effects of nationalistic poli

the trouble caused by setting up
artificial barriers to free interna
Telephone . . . Improved
I saw a new kind of telephone
instrument the other day, which the
telephone people say will be in uni
versal use in a few years. It doesn't
have any box to fasten to the wall
the bell Is contained in the base of
the receiver. There are two clap
pers to strike the gongs. One is the
usual metal tone, the other is made
of wood, to give a softer note for
the benefit of nervous people who
"jump out of their skins" whenever
the telephone rings. And the two
gongs are pitched to different tones,
giving a musical effect as the clap
per vibrates between them.
A little thing, perhaps, but one
more example of the way business
enterprises are always trying to im
prove their product

The proper treatment
for a bilious child
A cleansing dose today; a smaller

ANY mother knows the reason
when her child stops playing, eats
little, is hard to manage. Constipation.
But what a pity so few know the

exactly suited to any age or need.
Just reduce the dose each time, until
the bowels are moving of their own

This treatment will succeed with
any child and with any adult.
