Senator on Thursday
Marjhall Corneft Addresses Women' Organiza
tion on Activities of Recent Legislature
With SUU Senator Marshall Comatt as guest speaker,
the Soroptlmlst club reoalved conolM, first-hand account of
tha 1941 Oregon legislature at Ita Thursday noon lunchaon at
tha Wlllard hottl, of which possibly tha moat Interesting part
to Klamath resident wag tha tory behind tha failure of pas
aaga of tha reapportionment of the 17th senatorial district bill.
Mri. Alice Howard, legislative chairman of Die club. Intro
duced the tpeakar.
"During my campaign for
atata aanator I made only one
apeclflo promise," the speak
er stated. 'That waa that I
would Introduce and support
measure to reapportion the
17th district in order that wa
might have representation
comparable to other districts
of the state, and to better the
( 'equitable condition that
ittw exists.
"On February tha twelfth,
I Introduced Senate Bill 241
which proposed to transfer
tha 18th district, which over
laps Morrow, Umatilla and
Union counties, and make of
Deschutes, Lake, Jefferson
and Crook counties the 19th
district, with a population of
32,490, leaving Klamath coun
ty, with a population of 40,
497 the 17th senatorial dis
trict. "Whan the bill came up for
final passage on February
tha twenty-fourth, after I had
previously made a motion
that It be made a special or
der of business on that data,
tha opposition was led by
Senators Mahoney and Kenln
of Multnomah. There had al
so been some vote swapping.
Senator Wheeler of Lane
C;punty, who had voted In fa.
ior of tha bill In committee,
changed and voted against It.
"The merit and fairness of
the bill were not considered
by the opposition but was
rather placed on a personal,
sentimental and emotional ba
sis with tha theme song that
we were trying to vote Rex
Ellla out of a Job. Ellis made
an Impassioned speech, nev
er referring to the merits of
tha measure but continually
harping on how much he en
joyed the fellowship display
ed In the senate, how he en
joyed the social life and that
his wife would be broken
hearted If she was unable to
coma back two yeara hence,
and stated that he closed
with a prayer In his heart
that the senators would not
vota him out of his position.
..Hear In mind that his term
plres before the next see
slon and that he also has
aspirations to be the repre
sentative In congresa from
this district
"In my opinion the debate
en the senate floor had no
bearing whatever on the final
outcome but that the measure
waa defeated by vote trading
before the bill came up for
final passage."
Senator Comatt then re
counted other measures to
which ha and Representative
Henry Semon, working close
ly together, resorted In an ef
fort to secure the representa
tion to which Klamath la en
titled. He stated that it Is his
hope that public opinion has
been so focused that during
the next session he will be
able to Institute and con-
(Ruminate a similar measure.
, Regarding other bills. Sen
ator Cornett said that he sup
ported the bill Increasing
lengths and load limits on
trucks because ha felt that
Inasmuch as Klamath Is so
near the California line It
would give the county' agri
cultural Interests, as well as
others, an economic advant
age. And Just to show how
inconsistent and unpredicta
ble ninety men can be, he
aald that the legislature, after
4 rejecting the original bill,
turned around and passed a
senate bill authorizing lengths
of trucks be Increased to sixy
feet, and house bill allow
ing the logging Industry to
increase loads which, togeth
er, accomplished exactly what
was provided in the original
CN11, with the exception that
s. applied only to logging
trucks. The senator felt that
this was class legislation.
'The so-called speed bill
passed and becomes a law be
cause it was introduced and
sponsored disguised as a 'safe
ty ' measure," he stated. "In
my opinion it Is a atep back
wards and is open for un
limited abuse. It seta max
imum speed of fifty-five miles
an hour at the discretion of
the speed control board which
is to be appointed, adding an
other board to our already
board and commission-infested
"The real danger In this
bill, however, is the prima
facie portion from which the
law gets Its name. This act
transfers the burden of proof
from the arresting officer to
the offender, whereas it has
-een a foregone conclusion
Vdr ages, In the democratic '
form of government, that a
person Is Innocent until prov
en guilty."
Senator Cornott also ex
plained tha confusion and
mistake in the cigarette tax
bill that was rushed through
at the close of the session
and is due to become a law
unless referendum la insti
tuted. He aald that ha did
not support this bill for the
simple reason that he was In
formed by legal talent that
the measure, because of Its
defective title, would be de
clared unconstitutional by the
"It la Inconceivable," he
stated, in closing his talk,
"that even in sixty or ninety
days every other year these
ninety unorganized men could
be expected to segregate the
good from tha bad, and the
constitutional forty daya
would not afford ample time
for statesmen of the calibre
of Jefferson, Clay, Jackson or
Lincoln, men whose strength
of character, spiritual and
moral fiber left to us so rich
a heritage, to give mature
thought or Just consideration
to nearly a thousand bills
which vitally affect the wel
fare of more than a million
"Just what steps art neces
sary to amend our constitu
tion to meet present day
needa I am not qualified to
answer. But If remedial
measures are not inaugurated
and consummated our demo
cratic and American form of
government will be wrested
from us and wa will be ruled
by a government of overlap
ping boards, bureaus and com
missions. It Is high time, In
the face of chaotic world
conditions, and tha ever
growing effort to centralize
government, that we, as citi
zens of Oregon, give sober
thought to our state govern
ment and make a unified ef
fort to maintain our a t a te

Tips From Garden Notebook
By A Klamath Gardener
There la usually oom in any
garden plot for a few berry
plants. And those without them
do not realize what they are
missing, for there Is nothing
more delicious than berries
freshly picked. Grrwing them
for ones self will also enable a
person to grow a better quality
than can be sold in the markets.
For the market grower must
raise the kind that will stay
fresh in appearance for many
days, retain its shape and be of
a more meaty variety that will
not bruise easily, therefore one
that will not be u Juicy as
those that can be picked and
eaten at once. I think anyone
who has eaten the soft, Juicy
kind fresh from the garden will
agree with me on Ihis point.
Naturally though this type of
strawberry is not quite as hardy
growing in this section as the
other kind.
However the kind most com
monly grown here, the ever
bearing, can be biought to a
state of perfection through care
ful cultivation.
The one season berry does not
do so well here unless they can
be grown in a very sheltered
spot in frost will not hit
I think most of us who have
grown the June bearing type
have discovered that Just about
the time that they are well
bloomed out and berries ready
to set on the vine, a hard frost
comes along and sho'tly after we
will notice that the center of
the bloom has turned black in
stead of a tiny green berry form
ing. This is what the frost has
done, blighted the blossom just
enough to prevent the berry
from forming.
Most of us who have tried dif
ferent varieties, find it's better
to stick to the everbearing kind
because they will soon bloom
again and produce another and
better crop, and will do this suc
cessively throughout the season.
The quality of beiry even of
this type will depend a great
deal on the method chosen to
grow them. I believe the most
common method used is the sin
gle row. That is setting the
plants about a foot ajiart in rows
about two feet wide and letting
the runners fill up the spaces
In the rows. This Is known as
the "single hedge row." If the
runners are allowed to form a
wide row, that is several plants
deep, it is known a the "mul-
itiple hedge row." Then an
other, method and the one pro
ductive of large, but fewer ber
ries is the hill system, that is,
setting the plants in hills about
two feet or more distance each
way. The runners must be kept
well cut off so that all the
strength will go to the parent
plant to produce large berries.
The single row system produces
more berries but smaller In size,
and the matted row in turn will
have more but still smaller
Strawberries do not do well
on newly dug or plowed ground,
for new giound will probably
contain enough white grubs and
wlreworma to destroy the berry
roots. Sod should be turned
under a year or two nd manure
used that much ahead of time,
so that when the ground is
turned under again the weed
seed will be lost through tillage,
thereby lessening the weeding
JOD later on.
Very often, with the best of
care we fail to get a crop of
berries, due probably to the tact
that we have gotten a variety of
berry with Imperfect flowers (In
which the stamens are defective
or lacking). These will bear no
fruit unless polinafed from the
perfect varieties.

If the imperfect tyi-es are used.
every third row should be plant
ed with the perfect type to in
sure fruit. If you are setting
out a new patch the best thing
would be to plant only the per
fect kinds.
In setting out the plants care
should be taken to have them
just at the proper depth. That
is, the crown of the plant should
be level with the surface of the
soil. If the crown is lower, the
plant will rot If H is sticking
out of the ground the plant will
dry nut, so in eitnei case they
will be lost. If plants are set
a little late, and start blooming
rly, the first blossoms should
be pinched off to uvmre huskier
plants. When runners start they
should be -tit off, otherwise the
strength of the plant will go to
them instead of making berries.
In seleccng plants from an
older patch, take large healthy
one year old plants with a good
root system Young plants have
all light roots. If the roots are
quite long the uneven ones can
be cut off so that tlie roots can
be spread nut in the nole. Plenty
of water should be used when
setting the plants, and plans
made so that they can be kept
moist at ail tunes after they
begin to bioom and bear, as
strawberry is mostly water any
way. They should be kept well
cultivated, out I have found that
if one has light soil that is cul
tivated whtn it is dry and when
the plants are blooming the re
sulting dust will, do a lot to
lower pollination and the pro
duction of truit. It's a good idea
to use a mulch when the flowers
appear and keep wtll watered.
