20,000 New Licenses
By A. L. LJLTSTDBECK
Salem. If you failed to read any
thing about the meeting of the
newly organized state flax board in
vmir favorite newspaper, blame it
on the capitol reporters. The board
met all right but there was no re
port of the session simply because
when the board got ready to talk
to the news men the capitol cor
nt were busy staging a
small sized revolt against the in
creasing tendency toward execu
tive sessions and censored news
fconH-niits on the part of state
hnnrrin and commissions.
When the flax board went into
session it closed the doors on the
press and public The press rep
resentatives on the capitol' assign
ment should be accustomed to such
treatment by now, but they are not
They stood around on one foot for
a while and then shifted to the
other for sake of impartiality. Af
ter an hour of watchful waiting
they (the reporters) gave up their
vigil outside the portals of the com
mittee room and went in search of
other news. Later mucn laier in
fact so the press representatives
were afterwards informed, the
committee emerged from their hid
ing prepared to reveal the secrets
of their session to a waiting world.
But there were no reporters around
to record the story which is still
Two more young Democrats were
rewarded by state jobs this past
week. Alton J. Basset of Port
land became secretary to the state
caDitol reconstruction commission
and William Hedlund, also of Port
land, became assistant supervisor
of the liauor control commission.
In Hedlund's case the new job rep
resents a promotion. Hedlund is a
son of the Portland postmaster

Beware of "Botanical Gardens, of
St Louis" and their bulb offer.
This is the warning received by
Governor Martin for state wide dis

firm was characterized by the Bet

Since the state legislature turned
down his request for an appropria
tion for the state mining board
Governor Martin has turned to the
peoDle with a request for voluntary
donations to finance the work of
Created in 1929 the mining board
was given $15,000 that year with
which to match federal funds In a
cooperative Burvey of the state
mineral resources. The session of
1931 attempted to duplicate this
appropriation but the measure was
vetoed by Governor Meier and the
board left without any funds. As
consequence the board has not
functioned for several years and
there Is now no authentic informa
tion as to the state's mineral de
posits available for Inquirers who
are seeking investments in this
state, the governor declares.
The governor asked the special
session for $15,000 for the mining
board. The amount was reduced to
$5000 by the ways and means com
mittee but the senate killed the
More than 26,000 of the 1936 auto
mobile license plates were mailed
out to Oregon motorists Saturday,
the first day on which the new
plates could be displayed on cars,
according to Secretary of State
Snell. Two new branch offices
have been established for the con
venience of motorists, one at Eu
gene and the other at Oregon City.
Both of these will Issue plates over
the counter. The peak of the li
cense demand is not expected until
Oregon firms will receive all state
business in the future unless they
try to gang up and profiteer, the
board of control decreed this week
in meeting a complaint filed by Ore
gon stationers against allegedly
unfair competition on the part of
out-of-state firms who use Oregon
as a dumping ground for surplus
stocks. California and Washing
ton have for years refused to buy
state supplies from out-of-state
firms, It is understood here While
firms from these adjoining states
have been Invading Oregon with
cut-price bids for state business
firms from this state have been shut
out from crossing the state line to
compete with firms of the neigh
Flax sheds at the state prison
which for several years following
1930 were full to bursting with raw
material are now almost empty.
With the prison plant prepared to
sign up an Increased acreage for
1936 the management is finding
difficulty in persuading Willamette
valley farmers to contract for a
flax crop at 25 a ton. To meet
this situation the board of control
has authorized the flax plant man
agement to enter Into an open con
tract, pegging the price at a mini
mum, of $22 a ton and giving the
grower the advantage of any ad
vance In the market price at har
vest time next fall.
Oregon Jersey breeders want the
state to use more Jerseys In their
institution herds. A survey reveals
that most of the state owned herds
are Holsteina. The state hospital
at Pendleton has two herds, one of
Holsteins and the other of Jerseys
and the tuberculosis hospital at Sa
lem has a herd of Jerseys. It Is
proposed that comparisons be made
between the various herds to deter
mine feeding costs, production and
other factors entering Into the cost
of milk fed to state wards.
Owners of old cars equipped with
pick-up bodies were evidently
caught napping when the 1935 leg
islature taxed an extra $5.00 license
fee on these light trucks. The in
crease in license fee becomes effect
ive January 1, for which licenses
are now being issued and many of
these owners of light delivery
trucks are discovering the fee
change for the first time. Secretary
of State Snell who is being deluged
with complaints declares that the
increase in fee was not of his doing.
Only strictly passenger cars arc
now eligible to the $5 fee.
Rumor about the capitol has it
that Otto Hartwig will step out as
a member of the industrial accident
commission when his term expires
January 1. Hartwig, a republican
and the representative of organized
labor on the three-man commission,
is to be replaced by a democrat, the
rumor goes. This report has taken
the wind out of political observers
around the state house who have
been predicting that T. Morris
Dunne, also a republican, would be
the member selected to walk the
political plank when Governor Mar
tin got ready to change the political
complexion of this board. Hart
wig, one time labor leader in Ore
gon, is still popular In labor circles
Albert Hunter, formerly ot La
Grande, is the democratic member
of the board and will probably be
retained on the commission thru-
out the present administration.
It is also rumored that Jack Al
len of Pendleton is slated to retire
as state liquor administrator about
the turn of the year, probably to
be succeeded by Otto Runte, a su
pervisor in the employ of the com
mission and a hold-over from the

Humanity . . still same
The more thoughtful members of
the homan family have always been
curious to know how, when and
where the manners, customs and
habits familiar to everyone, be
gan. It is not merely curiosity that
prompts scientific investigators to
go back to the beginning of things.
Every bit of evidence that things
which we are inclined to regard as
modern are really very old helps to
a better understanding of what we
call, for lack of a better name, "hu

Beginnings . one mystery
My indefatigable friend Joseph
N. Kane, spends his time in digging
down to the beginnings of things.
Some years ago he published a
thick book called "Famous First
Facts" in which he told who was
the first person to do or invent or
discover many of the things that we
regard as what have always been
done. Now he has a new book
called "More First Facts."
I have gone through it carefully
to see if Joe has found out the name
of the first man who ever ate an
oyster. I think it was Dean Swift
who said that that man, whoever
he was, was a real hero. But Joe
Kane hasn't got his name in his
Life . . . spore hunting-
There are still millions of ques
tions about the beginnings of things
to which science has not found the
answer, but every year we come
nearer to the truth. The origin of
life itself Is a mystery which has
not been solved.
A great Swedish scientist Svend
Arrhenius, put forward a theory
that life first came to earth in the
form of spores carried through
space from some distant point in
the universe. Scientists admit that
may be true. The American Pro
fessor Compton's discovery of "cos
mic rays" which bombard the earth
from somewhere in interstellar
space, suggests that such a thing
When the biggest balloon ever
made went up fourteen miles Into
the stratosphere, a few days ago,
the observers carried not only In
struments for detecting and mea
suring the cosmic rays, but appa
ratus designed to collect spores, if
there were any, in this realm be
yond the earth's atmosphere.
Deities .... many
From the earliest days, peoples of
all races have been puzzled over the
beginning of things, and in the ab
sence of facts they have developed
folk myths to account for matters
which they did not understand.
Out of these attempts to explain
origins came many of the ancient
religions. The most familiar of these
Is the Greek mythology, which has
been preserved because the world
has access to more written records
of ancient Greece than to those of
any other race. The Greeks Im
agined an elaborate system of gods
and demigods to whom they attri
buted not only the origins of every
day phenomena but all of the good
and ill that happened to human be
ings. In this they were like all
other prlmlntlve peoples, In as
cribing human attributes to their
