EX-CI.'S RECEIVING SU
POUCIES THROUGH MAIL
Kx-GI's of this area have start
ed receiving National Service Life
Insurance policies in the mail
from the Veterans Administration
district office in Seattle, Charles
M. Cox, VA representative at Pen
dleton, announced today.
The new policies are being is
sued on GI Insurance which has
been renewed for a second term
or has been converted to a per
manent plan, Cox explained. Un
til a veteran renews or converts,
the certificate that was issued on
his original term insurance will
remain in effect.
"Many veterans are asking why
the new GI policies do not show
the names of beneficiaries or me
thod of settlement," the VA aide
stated. "Designation of benefi
ciaries and settlements is con
tained in the veteran's insurance
files kept by the VA.
"The insured may change or
confirm either of these at any
time, simply by submitting the
proper form or a letter with full
details. He does not have to send
in his policy."
Veterans who are not sure their
records are up-to-date should
check through the Pendleton of
fice or write directly to the VA
insurance center in Seattle, Cox
No action is required of in
sured veterans to obtain the new
policies, he added.
EDUCATION VS. COMMUNISM
It is fair to say that the local
millage released by additional
state aid for schools would TEND
to keep property taxes from ex

in most communities the slack

building programs or city or
We do not think the Legisla
ture should overlook the fact that
school aid is one of the most log
ical places to apply property re-lie-f
because: Schools have no
power to tap any other local
source of revenue and cities and
counties are now being cramped
because of the large proportion ol
local property tax which must go

There's plenty of good, wholesome food at every "chow down"

About the sixth or seventh

some of the bipger legislation be
gins to be decided upon. The last
week saw the house pass some
tax bills and the increase in the

Increases in workmen's com

made by the house, about 2'i

though the committees still must
pass on it.
The house approved diversion
of the excise tax to the general
fund for two years and passed a
resolution letting the people vote
on a measure to remove the right
of the state to levy a tax on pro
perty. Other changes proposed are
not important and, in fact, the
state would have gotten along
well had there not been a tax
committee at all. Then the peo
ple would have retained their
right to pass upon the expendi
ture of excise and income taxes.
The school lobby put the $30
increase across although at least
two legislators said they were
voting against their better judg
ment and in deference to the
large number of letters received
from school people. It is estimat
ed that less than 20 of the 60
house members voted for the bill
with a clear conscience.
The additional $30 will be paid
out on a day's membership basis.

Gilliam and Wheeler counties
may have a new board of man

cers will all have their salaries
raised probably and some of
them very generously, Legislators
seldom exercise any supervision j
over county salaries and the com
mittees usually insist that coun

approve salary scales. The re
sponsibility is therefore local
and that is where it should be.
When a school board from Ben
ton county came in to protest over
a bill limiting the period a dis
trict could be suspended it gave
rise to a question about why dis
tricts must be contiguous to be
consolidated. This district want
ed to consolidate with Corvallis
but couldn't. So a bill was written
to remove the "contiguous" be
cause no one could think of a
reason for keeping it. So maybe
another limiting factor will be
removed from the statute books.
