homesteader an opiortuntty the pop
ulation now liockff to the cities for
employment. To a man In a New
York office, even 'though his infor
mation is gleaned rrom reports by
the Forestry Commission, this state
ment might seem apparently true.
To us of the West who know of the
millions or acres of unentered gov
ernment land, the story Is not taken
seriously. It Is true that the choice
land Is gone, but In the state of Ore
gon alone something like 1G.000,
000 acres of government land yet
remain. Much of It is fit only for
grazing, and lies remote from trans
portation, but with all theBe condi
tions to contend with, thousands of
sturdy American citizens may even
now find good homes in this, the
best part of Icicle Sam's domain.

Wa.moes for Cold Weather I
At a Joint meeting of the teachers
of Jackson and Josephine counties
a few days ago at Ashland, the Nor
mal School question was out of the
interesting themts discussed and res
olutions condemning the action of
the Legislature in withdrawing State
support from the Normals, and also
advocating the establishment of three
Normals In the State were passed.
Since four Normals were discontinu
ed, two in Southern Oregon, one
at Monmouth and the fourth at,
Weston, east or the mountains, the I
Inquiry naturally arises as to where
the proposed schools are to he lo
cated. On this Important point the
convention remained silent. Perhaps
the convention assumed that the Leg
islature could wrestle with that prob
lem, so that tho blame for any disap
pointments might be placed on the
lawmakers' shoulders. While we re
gret the ahscense of our Normal
schools, It seems an lm possible task
to get the matter adjusted to meet
general approval, and possibly that
