IS IRKSOME OFFSPRING
Few parents there are who do not
know the whereabouts of their off
spring at three weeks of age. Such,
however, was the case of Mr. Buck
and Mrs. Doe Deer last Monday, or
at least of their owner, Sheriff C. J.
D. Bauman. The little speckled fawn
had made its arrival in the deer pen
at the Bauman home just three
weeks before, but when Mr. Bau
man went to look after the family
that morning, the babe was missing.
He wasn't particularly worried as
the youngster had already taken
French leave twice before, only to
show up at the next feeding time. It
apparently had located an exit too
small for the older animals to get
through. Speckled as a mountain
trout, the new arrival at the Bau
man home has attracted much inter
est since putting in his appearance.

the family home is being made at
The Dalles as that place is nearer
the center of his recently enlarged
territory. The well wishes of many
friends here accompany the family
to their new home.
Prospects for at least two and pos
sibly three federal marketing agree
ments being in force in Oregon for
this year's crops are seen by AAA
officials as a result of recent action
at Washington and sentiment ex
pressed at hearings held in this state.
The proposed marketing agree
ment for handling Oregon and Wash
ington fresh prunes in the Milton
Freewater and Walla Walla districts
has been given tentative approval by
the secretary" of agriculture and will
go into effect if finally accepted by a
vote of the producers. This district
has been working for several years
under a voluntary agreement plan
worked out with the assistance of
the extension marketing specialists
at Oregon State college, which led
to a request to go a step farther and
obtain federal support for a more
inclusive marketing program.
Hearings on the proposed potato
marketing agreement held at Klam
ath Falls, Redmond and Portland
brought considerable enlightened
discussion and suggestions from the
growers and dealers, according to
those who attended the meeting.
Growers in the chief commercial
areas were sympathetic toward any
promising effort to stabilize the
marketing procedure, but made a
number of suggestions in connection
with possible administrative defects.
The most serious question raised
at the hearings in Oregon was over
the inclusion of western Oregon in
the proposed marketing control area.
It wa9 pointed out that a compara
tively small percentage of western
Oregon production enters interstate
commerce, and that perhaps the gen
eral plan would meet with better
success if the valley region were
Hearings on the prposed hop mar
keting agreement held in Salem,
Santa Rosa, Calif., and Yakima, Wn.,
brought fairly unanimous approval
of such a program from the growers
and brewers, in contrast to similar
hearings held in 1935, when growers
were divided in sentiment and brew
ers mostly antagonistic. Brewers this
time agreed to cooperate in the plan
with the understanding that at some
future time they would urge elim
inating more of the low grade prod
uct, instead of a horizontal reduction.
CARD OF THANKS

tended to the many neighbors and
friends for their kindness, helpful
ness, expressions of sympathy and
beautiful flowers at the time of be
reavement of our beloved husband,

from a benefit week to a calendar
week period of seven consecutive
days ending each Saturday at mid
night to further simplify and speed
administration of the unemployment
compensation law by the commission.
Just as in the old army pay rec
ord, the claim book will contain the
jobless claimant's name, address,
claim number and weekly benefit
amount when determined. To this
information will be added social se
curity number, maximum benefit
amount, day for reporting to em
ployment office and earnings by
week, if any.
Claimants will be required to pre
sent claim books when reporting to
the local employment offices.
The new procedure becomes ef
fective July 3, but that date falls on
Sunday and the next day is a holi
day. Books and a manual of instruc
tions have been supplied to each of
the commisison's 22 offices over the
state and deputies now are trans
ferring data from the old forms to
the new. They will be ready for dis
tribution to claimants immediately
after the hoidays.
Oregon is the first state among the
28 that will be paying benefits by
July 1 to adopt the claim book, and
commission officials expect the new
procedure will not only simplify and
reduce the cost of administration
but will minimize hazard of error
and facilitate identification.

holiday every claimant to jobless in
surance under the state unemploy
ment compensation law will be is
sued an individual "claim book"

benefits in a manner corresponding
to the more familiar savings bank
pass book and the individual pay
record carried by Uncle Sam's expe
ditionary force in the world war.
The new claim book, together with
a new form of continued claim pay
ment voucher, will be synchronized
with the recently authorized change
