Salem. The Oregon legislature
which, in its recent special session,
authorized the construction of a
new $2,500,000 state house will in
all probability be preparing for its
regular session of 1937 if not actu
ally in session before construction
work on the new building gets un
This was indicated in an inter
view here this week with Carl F.
Gould, Seattle architect, whom the
capitol commission has retained as
its technical advisor.
"Few people appreciate the tre
mendous amount of work involved
in preparing plans for a building of
this type," Gould declared, explain
ing that the architect would prob
ably require six months in which
to complete his plans after his se
lection. Selection of the capitol architect
will be made through a nation-wide
competition which will require an
other three months time, Gould
said. Preparation of the contest
rules and regulations and study of
the designs and selection of the
winner will consume another month
so that, all told, it will be at least
ten months and possibly 12 before
dirt can be expected to begin flying
on the capitol site.
Gould who was supervising ar
chitect on the Washington capitol
group at Olympia, was in Salem
getting the "feel" of the situation
here. Questioned as to his opinion
with respect to the type of build
ing which should replace the old
state house he replied that "the
Pacific coast states and particu
larly Oregon seems to be pretty well
imbued with the old New England
traditions" which was interpreted
as a leaning toward the more con
ventional type of building rather
than one of modernistic lines as has
been the trend in capitol buildings
erected in recent years.
Collections of the State Bonus
commission for 1935 totalled $1,
818,568.99, according to a report by
Jerrold Owen, secretary. This fig
ure almost equals that of the com
mission's banner year 1929 when
collections of interest and principal
payments totalled $1,869,966.15.
Only three Oregon counties were
delinquent in their payment of state
taxes at the first of the new year
Polk, Deschutes and Jefferson. Re
ceipt of Polk's final installment on
the 1935 state levy Saturday left
only two counties in the delinquent
First of the predicted changes in
the state's official personnel mater
ialized Monday when Otto Hartwig
stepped out as a member of the In
dustrial Accident commission to be
succeeded by J. C. Joy, Portland
democrat and labor leader. Specu
lation to the effect that Hartwig
was to be taken care of with a good
job in the new unemployment in
surance organization does not seem
to have been founded on anything
substantial. The only position in
the new set-up that might appeal
to a man of Hartwig's calibre is
that of executive secretary which
has already been filled by the em
ployment of D. A. Bulmore, former
Appointment of Joy to the acci
dent commission gives the demo
crats control of this important or
ganization. Albert R. Hunter,
chairman of the commission, is also
a democrat, and T. Morris Dunne,
the third member, is a republican.
Joy has been a personal friend of
trovernor Martin's for many vears
and was active in his behalf during
the recent gubernatorial campaign
as a member of his campaign com
The predicted retirement of A. J.
Derby of Hood River as a member
of the Hydro-Electric commission
is understood to have been post
poned for the time being. Derby
tendered has resignation to Govern
or Martin several months ago be
cause of his ill health but it was not
accepted and he is said to have been
persuaded to retain' his place on
this highly important board at least
until the present extraordinary de
mand for organization of peoples'
utility districts has been disposed
of. Political prognosticate had
Vernon Williams, editor of the Ore
gon Democrat, lined up for appoint
ment to the commission in the event
of Derby's retirement
Re-appointment of Stanley Jew
ett of Portland as a member of the
Liquor Control commission has dis
pelled any notion of a shake-up in
the personnel of that commission.
Governor Martin is said by admin
istration spokesmen to be entirely
satisfied with the services of A. K.
McMahon of Albany and James
Burns of Condon. Retirement of
Jack Allen of Pendleton as liquor
administrator, however, is still ex
pected as a development of the not
far distant future.
Registration of automobiles for
1936 is ahead of that of last year,
according to Secretary of State
Snell, although to date only a little
more than 50 percent of the pas
senger cars in the state have been
equipped with the new plates.
Governor Martin appears to have
scored at least a technical knock
out in his verbal battle with Rob
ert Sawyer, Bend newspaper man,
over the status of PWA funds avail
able for the new capitol program.
Replying to the governor's criticism
of the legislature for "throwing
away $450,000 in federal funds"
when the special session limited
the cost of the new state house to
$2,500,000, Sawyer has repeatedly
Insisted that the money was not
yet lost to the state but could still
be retrieved. Word from C. C.
Hockley, state PWA administrator,
is that a revised offer just received
from Washington limits PWA funds
for the capitol to 45 percent of the
$2,500,000. The ' other $450,000,
Hockley explains, has been absorbed

Parker of Rhea Creek grange.
A short business session before
supper was featured by report of
the treasurer, Emma Dillabough.
Orville Cutsforth announced a pub
lic dance at the Lexington grange
hall in the near future when it is
hoped to have Senator Pete Zim
merman present for an address pre
ceding the dance. Chicken and
noodles were served at 6 o'clock
followed by conferring of the fifth
degree on eight candidates by the
Wheeler-Gilliam Pomona team. 1
was the first time the team had
exemplified the work and they
earned congratulation for the effi
cient manner in which it was done.
Mr. Wicklander reported that
Oregon heads the list of states in
balanced programs. Washington
leads in membership gain which
was helped greatly by grange co
operative work in that state. Cali
fornia tops the list for having or
ganized the most new granges. Mr.
Wicklander asks that all granges
participate in the state grange
achievement contest for 1936.
Pomona lecturer, Vida Heliker,
announced a contest to be started
in the subordinate granges of Mor
row county and carried to the Po
mona for completion.
Mrs. Minnie McFarland, master,
announced the following commit
tees for 1936:

A resolution was submitted to the
resolutions committee against the
$10.00 fee on pick-up cars and was
approved by the committee and by
the Pomona assembly.
A standing vote of thanks was
given to the officers and members
of the Gilliam-Wheeler Pomona
grange and also to the Rhea creek
grange for the royal way Pomona
was entertained there.
