Beekeeper, Produce
Licenses Now Due
Salem, April 12 Produce operator
licenses and bee registrations are
now due in Oregon, according to the
state department of agriculture. In
both cases the due date was April
1, but the department is making
some adjustments because of delays
caused by the long session of the
legislature, though insisting on im
mediate licensing.
Produce operators are being li
censed under the act passed by the
last legislature. Licenses are required
of wholesale produce dealers and
retail produce peddlers.
Approximately 1,800 application
blanks have been mailed to Oregon
beekeepers, says Frank McKennon,
plant industry chief of the depart'
ment. The new license period pro
vided in the act of the last legisUv
ture is thought to conform to the
desires of beekeepers for a later li
censing date so that they may de
termine how many colonies have
successfully carried through the
Ladak Alfalfa Increases Profits
Longer life shown by Ladak alfalfa
compared with other sorts is esti
mated to have been worth at least
$25,000 to Oregon growers in 1938,
according to E. R. Jackman, exten
sion specialist in farm crops at OSC.
Jackman reports that Ladak acreage
has increased from 852 in 1932 to
11,427 last year. It is not adapted to
western Oregon use but in eastern
Oregon it has the advantage of be
ing higher yielding, more wilt re
sistant, hardier and more drouth re
sistant, leafier, and has a higher
feeding value. It maintains a stand
three or four years longer longer
than most other kinds which lowers
cost of production.
Three variety trials have been
planted in Morrow county this year
by the county agent to give the far
mers an opportunity of seeing the
difference in growth, resistance to
wilt and hay quality. These trials
are planted on the W. N. Nickerson
farm at Boardman, the Earl Stew
ard farm at Irrigon and the Krebs
Bros, farm at Cecil.
Fertilizer trials are also estab
lished on these plantings and on
older plantings of alfalfa on the E.
E. Rugg farm on Rhea creek and
the Almon Geiss farm at Irrigon.
Oregon State College This insti
tution will be host for the annual
ROTC competition for the govern
ors' trophy between units at Uni
versity of Oregon and here Friday,
May 19. Instead of the whote visit
ing corps being transported this year,
however, only the company actually
competing will come here from Eu
gene. Oregon State cadets won the
trophy last year in the first compe
tition and are busy preparing to de
fend their championship. The com
petition and military review will be
held on the intramural athletic field
as a feature of Campus weekend, and
with Governor C. A. Sprague and
other state dignitaries as guests.

State Income
Carkin Placing
Parole Board
Salem Contrary to the popular
impression taxes constitute only a
minor portion of the monies neces
sary to finance the numerous func
tions of Oregon's state government.
A survey just completed by State
Treasurer Walter E. Pearson shows
that of the more than $137,000,000
collected and disbursed by the treas
ury department during the 1937-38
biennium only $35,900,000 came from
taxes property, income, inheritance,
gift and gasoline. Property taxes
collected by the state during the
two-year period amounted to only
$1,084,717 or approximately one per
cent of the biennial budget. The re
maining $101,000,000 came from fees,
fines, interest on loans and bank de
posits, contributions by the federal
government, proceeds of bond sales
and profits of the state's liquor mo
nopoly. Gasoline taxes topped the list of
revenue sources, contributing $22,
407,444 toward the support of state
government during the two-year
period. In addition Oregon motorists
contributed $8,248,040 in registration,'
mileage and gross revenue fees.
Uncle Sam contributed a total of
$13,366,275 toward state government
al activities during the biennium,
$7,188,048 of this amount going for
highway construction.
The gross income of the Liquor
Control commission during the bi
ennial period was $18,250,464 of
which $5,511,391.63 was profit from
the sale of liquor, fees and privilege
taxes,' practically all of which was
diverted to relief and public wel
fare. Other items entering into the
state's financial picture for the bi
ennium were:
Interest earned on common school
fund, $716,596;
Interest on bank deposits and se
curities, $126,138;
Interest on loans to war veterans,
Contributions by employers and
employees to workmen's compensa
tion fund, $8,555,056; ,
State's "take" from pari-mutuel
betting, dog and horse racing, $197,
400; Fees paid by insurance compan
ies, $1,624,724;
Fees paid by corporations, $655,
904; Fees collected by department of
agriclture, $506,380;
Fees collected by 28 so-called self
supporting boards and commissions,
Fishing and hunting licenses, $1,
052,049; Poundage and other fees paid by
commercial fishermen, $326,755;
Fees paid by students in higher
educational institutions, $662,719; en
dowments, $15,225;
Bond sales by highway depart
ment, $1,750,000;
Collections from relatives of wards
in state institutions, $265,879; col
lections by state department for sale
of law books, notarial commissions,
candidates' fees, etc., $79,851; fees
collected by department of labor,
$120,402; litigants' fees in circuit
courts, $44,763; divorce fees, $41,020;
supreme court fees, $9,709.
The state fair management has
asked the Works Progress adminis
tration for a grant of $103,808 to
finance construction of a central
power plant, a new entrance, a res
taurant building and other improve
ments on the fair grounds.
John H. Carkin, former state tax
commissioner, has been "taken care
of with a position in the public
utilities commission. Governor Spra
gue in confirming the report of Car
kin's employment explained that he
felt Carkin's experience on the tax
commission would make him a val
uable addition to the staff of the
public utilities commissioner.
Carkin was deposed as tax com
missioner in an eleventh hour coup
engineered by State Treasurer Hol
man with the assistance of Govern
or Martin who fell in with Holman's
proposal when he saw in it an op
portunity to reward his executive
secretary, Wallace S. Wharton with
the post vacated by Carkin. Many
believe Carkin's employment in the
utilities commissioner is merely a
stepping stone to the commissioner
ship when, ultimately, N. G. Wal
lace retires from that post.
Another Republican was also re
warded for his services to the party
this week when Stuart Weiss of
Portland was employed by the In
dustrial Accident commission as col
lection attorney. Weiss was at one
time employed as an assistant to
the attorney general. He has been
active in Republican party affairs
for several years, serving as chair
man of the Multnomah county Re
publican central committee.
In G. W. Mason, Paul R. Kelty
and Roy S. (Spec) Keene it is gen
erally agreed, Governor Sprague
has found an unusually strong per
sonnel for his new parole board.
Mason whose home is in Portland,
is a member of the present parole
board. Kelty, former editor of the
Portland Oregonian, now retired,
lives at Lafayette, and Keene is
coach at Willamette university, Sa
lem. The board will meet soon to
organize preliminary to the selection
of its staff which will include a pa
role officer, assistant parole officer
and four field men. Headquarters of
the new parole organizaton will be
maintained in Salem with a branch
office in Portland.
Governor Sprague will not only
drive his own ar but he will do his
own driving. Both of Sprague's
predecessors Governors Meier and
Martin employed chaffeurs and
rode about the state in cars of ex
pensive make. Sprague continues to
get around in the same car he has
driven for the past three years which
he declares is still good enough for
his needs. A bill introduced in the
recent session authorizing the pur
chase of a car for the use of the gov
ernor was allowed to die in com
mittee when Sprague opposed the
move. He employed a combination
chauffeur and messenger during the
legislative session but this week dis
pensed with his service and proposes
to "drive his own" for the remainder
of his term.
At last the fight for repeal of the
milk control act is about to be car
ried to the voters. Senator Thos. R.
Mahoney of Portland, one of the
most active advocates of repeal of
this act at the recent session, has
filed a preliminary petition with the
state department for an ititiative
measure repealing the entire act. If
the requisite number of signatures
are secured the measure will go on
the ballot at the general election in
A delegation from the American
Legion appeared before the state
board of control this week to renew
their demand for preferential con
sideration of war veterans in filling
state jobs. O. E. Palmateer, former
state commander of the Legion, ex
plained that they were not asking
that all jobs be filled with war vet
erans but that they be given a fair
share of the jobs. A recent survey,
he said, showed that some state de
partments have no war veterans at
all on their payrolls while others
are employing a number of veter
ans. Palmateer said that Legion
leaders were opposing the move for
a general pension for veterans of the
World war, preferring to find jobs
for these men if possible.
Landscaping of the Oregon capitol
grounds, begun more than a year
ago, may not be completed for an
other two years.
With warm spring weather the
planting of lawn is now progressing
satisfactorily, and that phase may
be completed this year, but moving
of shrubs and finishing of the sunken
mall directly in front of the new
state house is expected to take much
Workmen are now busy putting
in new sidewalks, many of them
curving in graceful arcs through the
trees between the capitol and the
state office building to the east.
The broadening of the pension
program and cutting of qualifications
to an irreducible minimum was the
object of the state legislature in
changing the state relief committee
to a public welfare agency, Sen.
Page Seven
Donald A. Jones said here.
Jones pointed out that the federal
government is no longer matching
state funds dollar for dollar on gen
eral relief, and added that the re
duction in match funds calls for
closer supervision of state money.
"Other revenue sources must be
found if the present expenditure is
continued into the next biennium,"
Jones said, adding that any attempt
to raise property taxes would be met
by a general tax strike.
