Living Cost Up Growers said the Increased cost of living was taken into consideration In setting the upped prices, and added that because of the favorable wages offered they expect there will be no shortage In harvest labor this fall. It was pointed out at the meeting that on the basis of available information, the potato outlook Is worse at this time than a year ago at the same time. Growers also called attention to such increasing costs as the upped price of sacks and motor fuel. Usually, it was pointed out, low prices carry for about three years, when relief comes with a high-price year. However, in the Klamath potato Industry, low prices have now prevailed five years.

Some early potatoes will be harvested next week, and active shipments will start about August 25, it was anticipated. However, the big picking season will get underway late In September and the peak will be reached In early October. Courthouse Records WEDNESDAY Complaints Filed Lucille Wyckoff versus Wil-mer D.

Farm Wages Up SUBSTANTIAL increases will be made in the wages paid to men working the harvest of Klamath's big potato crop this year. Despite several years of low prices and none too rosy prospects for the present year, the potato growers of the Klamath area have upped wages to a point where they must be attractive to laborers even in these times. i At 2i cents a 60-pound sack, a good potato picker cn make excellent daily wages. Farmers say that these Wages are better than can be made in other agricultural iiJdUBtries employing transient and semi-transient labor, ich as hops and berries. Unlike many industries where wage Increases have fallowed revenue gains, the farmers must set their wages ahead of time and their revenue prospects are definitely uncertain.

But they recognize the increased living costs of the present period and the realistic features of the labor situation. It is to be hoped they find an ample supply of competent labor for harvesting Klamath's major csh crop, and, furthermore, that market and price conditions become such as to make it possible for them to nfeet the increased costs and make a fair profit That Depot Mailbox EVERY community has certain peculiar customs of its own. One such in this community is to post mail at the depot mailbox. This box is for the convenience and use of people wvth mail that can be posted only at the last minute before a train leaves, and is too late for posting at the post-office where the train mail is made up. But postal officials say that a lot of Klamath people imply make the depot box their postoffice.

They mail In it for hours before a train leaves, and some actually drive by the postoffice to place mail in the box at the depot. The result is serious congestion in the depot box and mony, forecasting the possibility that the price administration would be "sweet and rea sonable." NOT SWEET "Reasonable, yes," said Henderson.

Darlan was pictured in an authoritative statement as tho distator of France and the 85- year-old Marshal Henri Philippe Petain as "his Hlndenburg From neither man. It was said.

can any good be expected now as result of yesterday's grave events in Vichy. More Pressure Germany, according to authoritative British circles, is bringing more and more pressure on Vichy as Germain' difficulties in crease in the war against Rus sia, and both Petain and Darlan appear to be ready to acquiesce to these broad nazi demands. "Dictator Darlan has been placed in the strongest possible position for forcing on the French people measures of further surrender and collaboration with the axis which otherwise would be Impossible for him to force on his countrymen," the authoritative statement said. The reference was to the Vichy government's action In giving Darlan, strongly anti-British and champion of fullest collaboration with Germany, supreme authority over all the French armed forces and the overseas colonies.

Why should they both close for lunch at the same hour? A few minutes ago, a maa tried the time-honored short, change trick on me and 1 wanted to report him. I had small hope that the police could do much, but I had a vague Idea that thry might be able to warn people In Merrill and Malln to be on guard.

Anyway I called the state police and the sheriff's office and found both closed. I did get the county Jail, but the lady there told me to call, about 1 o'clock. There was no answer at the state police office at all. Of course, It did not really matter to me whether I got thim or not, because there is really nothing the police can do about short-change artists. At the same time, if I had Just seen a murder, those offices would have been closed.

I assume that the lady at the Jail could have found someone from the sheriff's office' If it had been urgent. But why have both offices, closed at the same time? Surely they could find someone In one-office or the other who could cinch up his belt and survive until 1 o'clock. Yours very truly, VERN S. McCLELLAN.

Thursday, Aug. 14 (UP) Seared and blasted by British and Russian bombs for five nights out of six, Berlin was believed to be under a new aerial assault early today only 24 hours after an attack by tree-skimming RAF bombers that set the German capital ablaze.

The Berlin radio suddenly went off the air at 10:45 o'clock last night, the usual indication of either a British or Russian air attack. Britain's biggest aerial weapons new four-motor bombers- lighted Berlin, with angry red fires visible for a great distance Tuesday night In the RAF'S most widespread raid of the war, hurled against a dozen other cities of the reich and nazi-held territory. Mights Traded Huge Wellington-Manchester, Stirling and Halifax bombers attacked Berlin for two hours in a step-up of the new allied offensive in which the British and Russian air fleets are "trading off nights" for the bombing of the German capital, it was re vealed. "Fires beginning as white points of light became a red glare beneath the clouds and ended In a sullen glow in the skies which crew saw a great distance away," the air ministry said of the Berlin raid. The raiders met one of the heaviest barrages ever sent up from Berlin's ground defenses.

the ministry said, and had to drop their bombs in the glare of hundreds of searchlights which followed the planes through the sky in massed groups of 30 to 40 beams. Widespread Attack The British bombers were taking their turn in the Joint Russo-British aerial offensive against Berlin and industrial targets In Germany. On four of the five previous nights, soviet bombers had swept in on Berlin from tne northeast. The RAF, no longer restricted to attacks on one or two German objectives a night, was re ported officially to have attacked, in addition to Berlin: Industries at Magdeburg and Hanover, the great Krupp armament works at Essen, the North sea port of Bremen, the naval base et Kiel, Stettin, important Baltic sea port; Osnabruek, Duls- DIAL 85(2 FRIDAY SATURDAY Two Big Featuresl ACTION!

NEW LOW PRICES 30c Including Tox UM Iti MM Til "1nds I TuTH THE istration of prices, you had bet ter get someone else." It looks as if they might. The first sharp open personal attack on Henderson came almost unnoticed in the senate from the new Mississippi Senator Eastland, who claimed Henderson had not done right by the southern cotton farmer. Board replacing Henderson's single-headed authority is now con sidered certain to be included in the legislation, but the bill prob ably will not get through until October. Discouraging military reports on the reds have caused men at the maps here to move up from September IS to September 1, their date for the anticipated evidence of the end. By that time they would not be surprised to find Leningrad, Kiev, Odessa and possibly Moscow in nazi hands.

Any unexpected' de velopments which would delay that eventuality would draw cheers throughout this govern ment. Small industrial concerns are beginning to bombard their congressmen about the defense program, squeezing them out of business through pre-empting their raw materials and the preempting has only started. A congressional eruption is being planned. All congress has been politically saddened by the necessity of voting onerous taxes. One southern senator who survived even a new deal purge says: "We'll apply the taxes to the people this year; they'll apply the pitchfork to us next year."

14 Pub-lie confusion about Mr. Roosevelt's nerve diplomacy in the far east is apparently a pri mary purpose of the policy and will be officially maintained. You will get no clarity here on that subject. Whether his shipping restric tions, for instance, are likely to cut deeply into the economic life of the Japs, or merely frighten and annoy them, is some thing this government- does not want anyone to know. STRATEGIC REASONS Neither the treasury nor state department will even give an in dication whether this country is continuing to ship large quan tities of material to Japan, or nothing.

It cannot be a military secret because the Japanese government well knows what li censes have been applied for or granted, what ships have sailed. But the Japanese and American people and the rest of the world are not to be allowed in on the affair for strategic reasons. The official idea is that by keeping the facts of the situ ation mysterious letting the situation simmer without clari fication diplomatic purposes will be advanced in some way. That is state department viewpoint. In addition, the treasury department takes the view that what Japan does with her money in this country is none of the public business.

This is what has been done so far. The only materials absolutely embargoed and therefore cer tainly not being shipped to Japan are aviation gasoline, aviation lubricating oil, scrap iron and some less important metals we need. FUNDS FROZEN Anything else could he ship ped, but only through the secret government process. All Japanese funds in this country have been frozen (placed under treasury control). When Japan wants to buy something she goes to the treasury and asks release of her funds to pay for it.

If permission is granted, she must go to the state department for a license to export it. As none of these transactions will be divulged, no- one can tell how strongly or weakly the keynote of far eastern policy is being pursued. The progress of price legisla tion through congress like a platypus through a molasses barrel is beginning to cause comment. House banking committee hearings resemble a continuous quiz program without the bene fit of Kieran, Levant and Adams. Leon Henderson, the Roose velt price man, was stopped after the hearings by Committeeman Gifford, the Massachusetts republican, who observed Henderson was belying his reputa working the entire Klamath a last-minute mailing place.

He predicted a new plastic Industry and expansion of aviation would give employment to "millions of persons." One of the plastics developed by Ford chemists is a material composed of 70 per cent cellulose fiber and 30 per cent resin binder. The cellulose fiber consists of 50 per cent southern slash pine fiber, 30 per cent straw, 10 per cent hemp and 10 per cent ramie. The cream color model displayed tonight carried a 69-horsepower Ford V-8 engine and was trimmed with maroon paneling.

The plastic material will absorb a blow 10 times as great as steel without denting. Ford was the first to test the durability of the plastic panel by swinging on it with an axe. The appearance of the panel remained unchanged after the blow but a similar experiment on a steel panel cut through the metal.
