Subsistence Homesteads in Coun-
ty Disapproved
Legislature matters were di*
cussed at the meeting of Pomona
grange Feb. 2 at Beaver Homes.
Some of the matters acted on
were as follows:
Regarding the support of AAA
and asking the continuance of the
same a resolution was adopted
asking the legislature to support
H. H. No. 97.
Regarding the establishing of
subsistence homesteads in this
county by the Portland chamber
of commerce. The organization
went on record as opposing this
move, as it was felt we now have
enough people needing help with­
out importing any.
Regarding careless and drunken
driving. The grange went on re­
cord as favoring a law making
any automobile driver responsible
for damage he may do to life or
property, insurance being com­
pulsory along this line.
Asking that stumping powder
be made available through the
government relief agencies, that
those having land to clear may
be able to buy this powder at
cost with the privilege of1 de­
ferred payment. This resolution
also was carried by the grange.
The Townsend old age pension,
came in for its share of discus­
sion, all seeming to favor some
form of old age pension, but
this resolution was finally laid
on the table and no action, taken.
The dog license law came in
for its share of criticism, as it
was felt that the present method
of handling the matter is expen­
sive, and too large a share of
the money collected goes for its
collection and operation. The
grange went on record as favor­
ing a change in the law to make
this tax a part of the regular per­
sonal tax, and to be collected in
the same way as other taxes, by
the sheriff. It was also voted to
broaden the law to include poul­
try and other farm animals be­
sides sheep and goats.
The grange adopted a resolu­
tion opposing the changing of
