SAN FIIANCISCO, Mar. 31.
Herbert Hoover has placed
himself before tho Benubllcans
of tho country as an avowed
. candidato for tholr presidential
, nomination. In a telegram to
! the Hoover Republican club of
California he announced last
night that recent developments
In the peace treaty situation,
"stagnation" in tho adjustment
of tho country's economic prob
lems, and urgent representa
tions concerning tho situation in
California had Impelled hjm to
confirm tho action his Republi
can friends had already taken
without consulting him.
Everything Is set for tho big squlr
rol poison drive which Is to be car
ried on throughout Klamath county
this year under the auspices of the
county farm bureau, and which will
begin Monday, April 5. Six tons of
poisoned grain has been mixed for
use in the campaign and tho same is
now being distributed throughout
tho county from certain centers in
each farm "bureau district.
At a session of the county court,
last Saturday Grant Nelson was ap
pointed polsqn inspector and he will
work in conjunction with the post
control committee of the farm bu
reau andwitU the many landowjv?
participating In the drive, to see
that all land throughout tho county
Infested with squirrels ls adequately
gone over with poison.
It has not been found practical to
inaugurate the drive with any par
ticular ceremony and the program
which will bo followed is simply to
havo each land owner begin putting
out tho poison on his property on the
date sot and to continuo samo until
all of his lands havo been covered.
In tho meantime each individual, as
well as each member of tho pest con
trol copimittce, will obsorvo closely
to see v,hich lands aro being poisoned
and which are not nnd report all
cases of the latter either at the office
of tho county agriculturist or directly
to tho poison inspector. If this plan
is followed diligently not many squir
rels will escape.
There has been eomo criticism di
rected at tho pest control committee
because of tho seeming delay in an
nouncing the opening date of tho
drive. According to tho committee
this criticism is not justified In view
of all of tho circumstances. In the
first placo tho poison was mixed as!
fast ns it was humanly possible under
tho conditions that the work was

However, in spite of all this the
poison is ready in ample time to se
cure the most efficient results in the
work ot extermination. Contrary to
tho prevailing opinion the best tlmo,
to poison is not when tho first squir-
rols make their nppearanco or for
some considerable time afterwards.

READ! TO TAKE
ACTION C. OF C.
Next Tuesday evening, April 6, at
8 o'clock at 'the city hall, supporters
of the Klamath County Chamber of
Commerce will take final steps for
reorganization of tho county's devel
opment body by electing officers,
adopting a constitution and deciding
upon hiring a secretary, securing an
office, etc. This was decided at last
i night's meeting at the city hall after
the commltteo on solicitation had re
ported that the pledges of support
now make available a fund of ap
proximately $4,000, with another
$1,000 In sight, giving a fund of at
least $5,000 to start with.
Capt. O. C. Applegate presided at
last night's meeting in the absence
of Capt. J. W. Siemens, and C. F.
Parker acted as secretary. A. B.
rpperson, chairman of the soliciting
committee, reported that some $700
had been pledged his committee. He
said that the former soliciting com
mittee, which secured about $3,000.
had "taken the cream," and left
their successors the hard task of
rounding up the stragglers. How
ever, he saitl, -there were many men
on tho list he had prepared who had
not been seen yet, and be believed
that $1,000 more might be obtained
without very great effort.
Fred A. Baker, chairman of the
organization committee, said that
j the committee had investigated the
motnods P""ed by other chambers
of commerce and had assurance of
aid and support pt the, state cham
ber. Ho said that he would be ready;
to offer constitution and by-laws for
approval of the chamber as soon as
'ffwas definitely decided to organfzeT ?c
Mr. Baker suggested that the organ
ization be formed on a unit plan,
-with branches in all sections of the
county, Klamath Falls to be the cen
tral unit of the federation. He also
suggested that the chamber of com
merce would have more weight and
greater .legal standing if It were in
corporated, Insteadj of a voluntary
association of citizens.
Tho meeting was enthusiastic and
tho general clamor was for ''action."
.The task of reorganization has drag
ged over a year, said speakers, and
"now or never" is the time for re-
,aunchtag thQ chamber of commerce
and ma'king it a vital Influence in
