Is That A Promise?
The Roseburg Business and Professional Women's club
is carrying on an extensive educational campaign as a part
of National Business and Professional Women's Week. We
know of no organization having a better right to boast of
its purposes and accomplishments, for B. P. W., both na
tionally and locally, has carved for itself an important place
in business, economic and social fields.
B. P. W. is an organization composed of women actively
engaged in business and professional activities. Its member
ship, by embracing such a large cross section of working
women, has available information touching on virtually
every important issue. Efforts are made to disseminate this
information to all members, thus producing a high degree
of understanding and intelligence.
Although B. P. V., because of its large membership and
closely knit organization, could be one of the nation's
strongest pressure groups, this power is seldom used. Never
to our knowledge has it been used for selfish purposes, al
though it has been exercised in an advisory manner in the
field of national legislation having to do with public wl-
The Roscburg club has been organized since 1921. From
a very modest beginning, it has developed to include more
than 80 members. The membership rolls are kept active
and individuals must justify their membership by partici
pation and cooperation.
From its very beginning, the Roseburg B. P. W. club
has been a "service" organization. It has aggressively in
terested itself in civic affairs particularly those having
to do with public benefit, such as parks, playgrounds, swim
ming pool, tennis courts, juvenile delinquency, etc. It has
carefully avoided the dictatorial attitude, but, on the other
hand, has at all times shown willingness to assume difficult
civic tasks shunned by many other groups because of the
amount of work involved. And it must be said, to the credit
of the Roseburg club, that seldom, if ever, has it failed in
successfully completing any civic task to which it set its
hand, regardless of obstacles.
The Roseburg club, we are informed, has 16 very active
committees, all functioning efficiently.
The legislative committee ascertains that every member
of the club, eligible to vote, is properly registered. Com
mittees on equal rights, public affairs and international re
lations, keep members fully informed on current affairs
and issues. As a result, club members go to the polls to
vote intelligently. On congressional issues it has urged rati
fication by the U. S. of the Covenant on Genocide, the North
Atlantic treaty, the extension of the European Conserva
tion Act, and the adoption of the Hoover commission report.
The health and safety committee cooperates with local
authorities and other groups in protective activities.
The Veterans hospital committee carries on a yenr-around
program of entertainment and help for veterans at the
Roseburg hospital.
The B. P. W. maintains a scholarship loan fund available
to help responsible young women wishing to complete their
schooling, together with an oriental scholarship functioning
under the international relations program. j
The Roseburg club, very early in its organization, raised
funds for the city's first public tennis court. It purchased
land, built the court and fences, then donated the recrea
tional installation to the city. The club still assists in the
cost of maintenance.
Relationships locally are cemented between emploves and
employers at an annual "Bosses Dinner."
Club revenues, in addition to membership dues, come !
from the annual Thanksgiving dance which the group has
sponsored for many years.
The organization maintains a standing invitation for busi
ness women to become members and membership is to be
recommended as a matter of self-education and self-help.
Republicans Deride Democrats'
Claim Of "Remarkable Record" j
WASH'NGTON, Oct. 12. (.B While Home claims that the;
democratic Slst congress has set a "rather remsrkahle record" has '

campaign commiltce, expressed his party's line. He told reporters
about the only thing the democrats have to brag about in the
current session Is the passage of foreign policy laws that the
"republicans helped put over." i

It was a hook-like, gold plated
gadget, a gift from California
that day, designed to clip on a
counter or table and. act aa a
hanger for milady's handbag. Mr.
Algernon Bitwuns shook his head
as he looked at it. "Think you can
find room for one more thing In
that bag of yours? Well," and he
grinned, remembering, "It isn't as
heavy as a hammer anyhow."
Mrs. Bitwuns laughed, too, re
membering that evening In
church, some years ago, when she
had opened her bag for some
thing, and Mr. Bitwuns had spit
ted a small hammer in her purse.
There was a good reason for Its
being there; Mrs. B had used It
to save Jabbing her thumb when
she posted some new notices on
the church bulletin board. She
thought nothing of It until Mr. B
reached into her bag and drew
forth the hammer.
Now Mr. B didn't precisely
brandish the hammer as one
might a lethal weapon; but he did
hold It, for a moment, with a
wicked gleam in his green eyes,
before he replaced it. Suddenly
Mrs. B was seized by a deplorable
desire to laugh, even if she was in
church. The harder she tried to
remain serious, the less auccesr
sh had. This pleased Mr. B, of
course. Maybe he was thinking of
the wifely nudge he had received 1
a few minutes before when he
was quite unaware that he was
Jingling keys in his pocket?
But Mr. B was surprised to dis
cover that the lady on the other,
s-tjaai of him was also showing
slg4sV of uncontrollable mirth i
Now Mrs. J was of the most digni
fied demeanor, the personifica
tion of decorum not only In
church but elsew here. Her friends
sometimes found her perfectionist
tendency even a little trying at
times. Mrs. J was by no means
small of stature either. So when
she shook with the laughter she
was struggling to control, and her
face became bright red, and tears
trickled down her cheeks, Mr. B
was so surprised he smiled ... A
stifled moan came from Mrs. J;
a choked gurgle from Mi s. B, and
Mr. B joined right in with a
downright snort on his own ac
count. . .
Faces turned their way . . .
after church there was a converg
ing upon the now quite serious
adults: "What on earth ?"
Mr. B had only to produce the
hammer from Mrs. B's bag, and
again there was laughter. You
see, the newspapers Just then
were full of details about a lady
who had used a hammer as a
lethal weapon!

and Juggle somebody else In. Such
schemes are almost as old as the
Republic. We even have a word
for It. We call it "gerrymander
ing." The political process Is so old
that the word is actually in the
dictionary, which defines It thus:
"To gerrymander: To divide a
state, county, etc., Into election
districts or other civil divisions in
an unnatural and unfair way so
as to give a political party an
advantage over Its opponent."
THE word takes it origin from
Governor Klbrldge Gerry, of
Massaehuscls, whose party, back
In 1H12, divided Essex county,
Mass., up Into a DRAGON
SHAPED district whose bound
aries were so drawn as to take in
all the areas populated hy Gerry 's
cohorts and to LEAVE OL'T the
areas that were antagonistic to
him and his crowd.
THE founding fathers wrestled
long and bitterly over this
same issue. When the federal
union that is now the United
States was being put together,
the thickly settled states with big
cities wanted representation In
Congress according to population

and seven associates asked lor a
mistrial. They claimed that a
government witness who referred
to one of the defendant's 14-year-old
criminal record prejudiced
the Jury.
A new trial probably will be
sought by the government. Tli
Indictments stand against Tuck
er and his associates In the multi-million
dollar fraud charges.
The battle finally ended In a
I compromise w ith member of the
House of Representatives elected
according to population and mem- j
bers or tne senate according to
states each state having two
senators REGARDLESS of popu
lation. s
BECAUSE of this compromise,
the West has been able to hold
its own against the heavily popu
lated East. I think nearly every
one in the West will agree that
the Far West would NEVER have
been able to make the gains we
have made.
Without the Senate (whose
members are elected by STATES,
regardless of population we
would never have been able to
get reclamation of our arid lands,
which is the foundation upon
i w hich the growth of the West
has been built.
It doesn't need reclamation
of arid land.
I It has always fought It.
I think it Is safe to say that If
Congress had been dominated by
the heavily populated Eastern
states the wide-open spaces of the
West would still be populated
by Jack rabbits and coyotes.
I HAVE such confidence In the!
sound thinking and the political
integrity of the people of Oregon j
that I believe even the heavily- j
populated Willamette valley w ill
be against this scheme as a mat-j
ter of fundamental principle.
I am sure that Eastern Oregon '
and Southern Oregon will he'
against It. We certainly don't
want to be the dog that is con-
stantly wagged by the big-city !
