Ecrly Day Changes In
By RALPH WATSON
Public Relations Consultant .
The period from October 1, 1930
to September 30, 1932 saw some
shifts and changes in the State
Highway" Commission. Governor
Julius Meier named Leslie Scott
of Portland as chairman, Carl
G. Washburne, Eugene, and E.
B. Aldrich, Pendleton, as com
missioners, while R. H. Baldock
succeeded Roy Klein as state
highway engineer and H. B.
Glaisyer was appointed secretary,
they both having long been with
the commission. The commission
faced depression conditions, fi
nanced unemployment relief on
inefficient day wage basis and at
the same time suffered reduc
tions in its own working person
nel and general salary cuts.
During that time, also, the
1931 legislature repealed the 1919
1 mill state tax levy for con
struction of market roads and
placed the obligation upon the
commission to expend an amount
equal to 1 mill levy (then approx
imately $1 million annually)
from the stale highway fund for
construction and maintenance of
"secondary highways" (previous,
iy handled by properly tax levies)
and set up the secondary high
way system. The commission
acting with the county courts,
accordingly designated 2,167
miles as secondary highways
with more former county high
ways, leaving it optional with
the counties to levy on property
for "county roads." All of this

put a big crimp in primary con
struction since it deprived the
commission of the use of the
revenues diverted to the counties
for matching federal aid funds
or primary highway construction.
From 1920 tn u tntnl nf

In spite of all its troubles the
commission reported a total ex
penditure on state highways dur
ing the biennium (1931-1932) of
$29,847,816 of which $23,116,490
were state funds; $143,882 coun
ty; $6,234,835 federal and $52,-
609 miscellaneous funds. Added
to this under the forest highway
program, a total of $2,756,887 (in
cluding $805,275 of state funds
listed above) was spent, of which

Power Report Shows
For 6,000,000 in '56
Congressman Lowell Stockman
of the Second District of Ore
gon announced from Washington
today that the report on the six
year advance program which
Bonneville Power Administration
has recently released indicates
that by 1958 the Pacific North
west will require p.ower supplies
for an estimated population of
5,800,000 and a substantially in
creased industrial base.
The Congressman said that
estimates in the report indicate
that not until the winter period
of 1957-1958 will any appreciable
power margin be available to the
Northwest area. He added that
he had carefully examined that
part of the report which gives
estimates of power requirements
over the sixyear period as com
pared with generation capabili
ties as proposed for installation
over this period, and the com
parison clearly indicates "the
precarious power situation which
still faces the region."
"The six-year construction pro
gram as outlined in this program"
he continued, "is of extreme in
terest to the state of Oregon and
particularly to the Second Con
gressional District which I repre
sent in the Congress."
Representative Stockman point
ed out that the major portion of
the new transmission lines in
cluded in this program will be
built in the state of Oregon to
transmit power from McNary
Dam to the various load centers
in the State. These include major
grid lines to transmit power to
the coastal area, as well as to

the northeastern part of the State,
which lines in addition to serv
ing the power requirements of
the Baker-La Grande area will
also connect to the projected
power project at Hells Canyon.
The program also includes the
extension of Bonneville's service
of the Klamath Falls area, funds
for which are included in the
omnibus appropriation bill now
under consideration by the Con
gress. The major portions of these
lines traverse the Second Dis
trict of Oregon and will bring
much needed relief to power de
ficient portions of the District.
