The Oregon milk control board will
not set aside Its minimum price
schedule as demanded by Portland ad
ministrative officers.
Chairman E. Q. Harlan today de
fended the board's actions and re
fused to vacate the orders and "plunge
the industry back Into demoralization
and chaos."
His decision was directed to Frank
S. Orant, Portland city attorney, who
last week charged that the board's
hearings before setting prices were
"preliminary and superficial.;
In commenting on opponents of the
milk schedules Harlan said:
"Two or three persons appeared
who clamled to speak for the mayor
or city council or both, but they fail
ed to offer and evidence, oral or writ
ten, and confined themselves to mak
ing speeches assailing the ood faith,
the Integrity and the acts of the
board; speeches that were obviously
prepared and delivered as hostile
propaganda and for newspaper con
sumption and clearly designed to em
barrass and. not to aid the board."
