SALEM. At least five veterans
of the last legislative session who
sought a return to the next ses
sion failed to make the first hur
dle and went down to defeat in
the primary election.
Probably tho biggest surprise to
political observers was the defeat
of J. G. Barratt of Heppner in his
race for the republican nomination
for state senator from the nine
teenth district One of the young
est senators in the special session
of last fall Barratt proved himself
a forceful debater and of a pleas
ing personality that made him high
ly popular with his colleagues and
promised to make him an outstand
ing leader in that body. Barratt
was defeated by Rex Ellis of Pen
dleton who will be opposed in the
November election by D. W. Hall
of La Grande.

Oregon's new capitol is to be of
modern Grecian design. Experts
predict that the structure when
completed will be a thing of beauty
that will attract the attention of
the nation but residents of the
state accustomed to the old state
house will miss the majestic dome
and the stately columns which they
are wont to associate with govern
mental authority. The new build
ing of three stories and basement
will be approximately 400 feet long
and the main structure will be ap
proximately 64 feet high or ten feet
short of the old state house while
the top of the sculptured figure
surmounting the cylindrical tower
will lack at least 20 feet of attain
ing the heighth of the dome on the
old building. Office space in the
new building will be confined al
most entirely to the first floor ex
cept for the executive department
which will occupy the entire south
wing of the second floor. Work
space is provided for some of the
departments in the basement
Another old age pension measure
is in the making. The proposed
initiative measure is sponsored by
the Old Age Pension Defense Lea
gue, the Non-Partisan Progressive
Union and the Oregon Workers al
liance. It provides for pensions of
$35 a month for single persons of
65 years or over and pensions of
$25 a month for each of two or
more persons in one family. Funds
for the pension are to be raised by
new taxes on industries, insurance
premiums, powere, mortgage fore
closures, transportation, telephone
revenues and incomes. If the spon
sors of the measure secure the
requisite number of names to their
petitions it will be on the ballot
next November for action by the
Unofficial advices received at the
capitol indicate that sponsors of
the peoples' utility districts in Mar
ion and Linn counties will attempt
to present the question of organiza
tion to the voters at the general
election in November.
In an effort to stimulate In
creased consumption of Oregon
prunes Governor Martin has pro
claimed the week of June 7 as "Or
egon Prune Week." A purse of
$100 is to be distributed in prizes
to winners of a prune recipe con
test. The contest is open to any
resident of Oregon. Recipes to be
entered in tlie contest should be
addressed to the contest depart
ment of the Northwest Dried Fruit
association, 506 Title and Trust

mailed before midnight, June 13.

Not since Henry L. Benson de
feated Chas. L. McNary for the re
publican nomination for supreme
court Justice by a single vote in
1914 has Oregon witnessed such a
horse race on the state ticket as
that staged by U. S. Burt of Cor-
vallis and Jack Allen of Pendleton
In their race for the democratic
nomination for state treasurer.
Complete reports from all counties
now give the nomination to Burt
by the narrow margin of seven
votes. Allen will not contest
The fate of the municipal bank
ruptcy act which was held to be
unconstitutional by the United
States supreme court this week,
will not hamper any Oregon mu
nicipality in its efforts to refinance
its outstanding indebtedness, ac
cording to state officials familiar
with the situation. Oregon has
three state acts designed to expe
dite refinancing by cities which
find their debts burdensome. One
of these, known as the municipal
administration act of 1933, author
izes cities to apply to the circuit
court for appointment of an ad
ministrator to take over its financial
affairs and make bond adjustments.
Another act of the same session
authorizes the state treasurer to act
as intermediary between niuncipal
corporations and bond holders in
affecting compromises and adjust
ments. A third statute, enacted in
1935, and known as the muncipal
refinancing act, permits cities to
refinance their indebtedness through
the medium of the State Bond com
mission. A total of $3,600,000 has been
budgeted for new construction work
and permanent improvements dur
ing 1937 by the state highway de
partment, it was announced this
week. Of this amount $2,045,000
will be supplied by tho federal gov
ernment The program has been
submitted to the Bureau of Public
Roads for approval, upon receipt
of which the letting of contracts
will be started.
Some concern is felt by R. H.
Baldock, state highway engineer,
over the ability of Oregon to match
future federal allottments for high
way work unless highway revenues
show a material increase. Under
the Hayden-Cartwright bill, still
pending before Congress, Oregon
would receive $2,045,000 in federal
aid for road work for 1938 and 1939
but that would require at least $2,
500,000 of state funds, including
costs of rights of way, Baldock
A riot at the state prison this
week in protest against failure of
the circuit court to release Earl H.
Fehl, former Jackson county judge,
without a parole, failed when the
large body of prisoners refused to
join the ringleaders in their noise
making. Several windows were
broken by missiles thrown from the
cells. The demonstrators are now
confined in correction cells.
Oregon must start to plan now
for at least two more state build
ings, Governor Martin points out
One of the new buildings, the gov
ernor explained, must be an office
building to cost approximately $1,
000,000. The other must be a li
brary building to cost approximate
ly $500,000. The firm of Trowbridge
& Livingston, New York architects,
selected to design the new capitol,
submitted a suggested capitol plot
which involves acquisition of four
additional blocks of ground north
of Court street, between Capitol
and Winter streets. The suggested
plot locates a building in each of
the four blocks, all as develop-
a good buy!

It's easy to be thrifty when
