try until agriculture is stabilized,
and until fair economic balance be
tween all groups has been attained,"
said Mac Hoke of Pendleton, presi
dent Oregon Farm Bureau federa
tion, in addressing a farm audience
in Baker Saturday.
"There is no question but that
there is potential demand for goods
and services far beyond the capa
city of our productive industrial
plant," said the speaker, "and that
demand can be made real once bal
ance has been established so that
people can trade with each other
on fair terms.
"Agriculture's income is far above
1932, but it will have to be raised
still more, or industrial prices will
have to be drastically reduced, if
agriculture is to absorb the volume
of industrial goods that it must ab
sorb in order to do its part in creat
ing industrial employment great en
ough to get the country in high
gear' once more.
"In order to have more, this coun
try must produce and sell more.
am not referring to agriculture, for
we are now producing much more
than can be used, even with the help
of export subsidies and the giving
of surpluses to relief families. I
am referring to industry, which in
1938 produced 20 per cent less vol
ume of goods than in 1929. Our in
dustrial world is paying the penalty
of artificial restrictions, imposed by
both capital and labor, which have
been employed for generations. The
tariff is restrictive, monopolies are
restrictive, excessive hourly rates for
labor are restrictive. All have tend
ed to limit the volume of goods and
services that the public can pay for,
and all have contributed their part
to the economic stalemate that exists
in our national economy.
"The log-jam must be broken if
we are to have the kind of a country
that you and I want to have. It
would be easy enough to break it
through dictatorial methods, but
that is not the American way. I
believe we have enough intelligence
and resourcefulness to do it by de
mocratic methods. The problem is
simple. We have the almost limitless
natural resources, the skilled labor,
the industrial facilities, the money
and the men necessary to produce a
national income of perhaps 100 bil
lion dollars. We have potential de
mand for the goods we could pro
duce; but so far we have not found
the key to the puzzle of poverty in
the midst of plenty. Some way
must be found to gear the various
elements together so as to function
effectively for the national welfare.
"Rates of labor are an important
factor in high prices. I don't want
to give labor less, but more. I mean
that the hourly concept is wrong,
and should be superceded by the
annual-wage concept. There is plen
ty of evidence that the labor groups
which receive high hourly wages,
such as carpenters, would be glad to
surrender a great deal in hourly
rates in return for a guaranteed an
nual income. Somehow or other em
ployers, employees and the farm
groups must be brought to mutual
understanding on such problems,
and then real progress can be made
"Farmers stand ready to do their
part. They have never asked for
arbitrary prices, but only parity
prices, which are prices which
will enable them to trade commod
ities for the goods produced by oth
ers, on a fair basis. I believe some
sort of parity yardstick can be
worked out to apply to labor and to

School Masters Club Meets
The North Central Oregon School
Masters club held their monthly
meeting at the Heppner hotel Mon
day evening at 6:30. Numbers on

faculty women's quintet composed
of, Heppner teachers, a Spanish and

Large Crowd Attends Sadie
One of the best school shindigs of
the year was the Sadie Hawkins'
hop starting Leap Year off with a
The jamboree was carried off in
the usual Dogpatch style with the
femmes dragging 'em in (and foot
ing the bills).
Many dark clouds of the future
were 'cleared up by 01' Man Mose
before he finally kicked the bucket.
And Marryin' Sam did his part
by hitchin' up Kingsley and Jim
mie, for the usual fee, of course.
Out of consideration for the weak
er sex (the men) someone left the
gasoline out of the kickerpoo juice,
no doubt causing some disappoint
ment. Old faithfuls, the Pansy and Luci
fer Yokum type, who lent an air to
the affair were Bill and Shirley,
Norma and Jack, Richard and Nel
ma, Connie and Don, and Frances
and Donald B.
The couples of the Daisy Mae,
Little Abner type were Joe and
Dorotha, and Neta and Jimmie.
Nerval and Dubbv seem to like
the Hairless Joe and Lonesome
Polecat idea that any feller is a
poor ijut to get hitched up.
Perhaps you all would like to hear
of some other interesting couples
such as Lois Jones and Tommie
Starkie, Wilma and Bob Pinckney.
Comment: Mistle Toe seems to be
a year around favorite.
