Do We Contribute Once Or Many Times
Some people still question the pro
gram of the Central Douglas United Fund
because of what they consider the "scat
tergun method" of providing funds for a
lot of agencies.
The specific answer to this is that if
a donor has preference, he may say
which agency or agencies should receive
his gift.
But these objectors are missing the
point of the United Fund altogether. Cer
tainly the value of bringing all annual
fund-raising into one campaign more
than offsets any unhappiness with a cer
tain agency within the United Fund fold.
Under the system of every agency con
ducting separate campaigns, these objec
tors and everyone else are "plagued to
death" with requests. The best remedy to
that so far is this one of united giving.
The support for the program, both by
participating agencies and by donors has
been growing, as it deserves to. .
Beside consolidating fund -. raising
drives, it has other intrinsic values. It's
a major project for the community as a
whole, rather than a splintered activity
handled by only those vitally interested in
particular, charitable programs. It tends
to reduce campaign expenses, because
one administrative system is instituted,
instead of the several necessary for sep
arate drives. Finally, the members of the
board of directors serve as a board of
review of the expenses of the organiza
tions involved. This has a tendency to
keep costs at a realistic level.
Benefits can also be seen for the cadre
of workers 'who do a good job of cam
paign work once, . but then are called on
again and again each year. They can,
under the Central Douglas United Fund
program, put all their efforts into fund
raising once a- year, instead of time aft
er time as new drives crop up.
The united giving program is a good
one, but it still meets with a lot of opposi
tion from agencies not within the CDUF
framework (and all worthy agencies may
be invited to join). They feel they can
do better alone. They may for a while,
but public reaction against one drive aft
er another will finally catch up with
them. Their failure to recognize this will
hurt them eventually, and it certainly
hurts the United Fund in its efforts to
establish a single campaign.
Again this year, CDUF and employers
are working together to allow workers to
make their pledges of donations in install
ments. This has the tendency of assuring
more money for the agencies because the
donor doesn't feel he is being "socked"
all at once.
The entire United Fund system has
been worked out to make the campaign
as painless as possible to all concerned.
This year's campaign goal is S69.936.
The CDUF has never achieved its goal,
out as sunport crows, the goal comes
;loser. Perhaps this is the year of suc
:ess. Included in this year's United Fund
organization are YMCA, Salvation Army,
Retarded Children's Association, Mental
Health Association, Camp Fire Girls, Boy
Scouts, Arthritis-Rheumatism Foundation
and American Red Cross, all local agen
cies. If the goal is reached, $8,500 of the
total will go to the Oregon United Appeal
which supports agencies serving on a
state-wide basis. Last year, the United
Appeal gave service to nearly 60 chil
dren from the county. The CDUF
estimates at the rate of $3.70 a day per
child, service to county children alone
amounted to $31,794.10.
The goals and activities of all agen
cies involved have been tested and ac
cepted for years. The question isn't the
merit. It is whether we contribute re
peatedly through the year or all at once.
The Central Douglas United Fund pro
vides the answer for that question.

Kenya's Kenyatta
Tries Tranquility
By ROBERT C. RUARK
A recent visitor who lives in Ken
ya, which gets its independence in
December, and whose leaders are
now holding "uhuru talks in Lon
don, reports very favorably on the
conduct of old Jomo Kenyatta, the
murder architect of Mau Mau who
is now tile country's prime minis
ter, foreign minister and chief of
internal and external security,
meaning cops and soldiers.
Jomo in recent months has been
courting the white settlers, at the
same time that a million settled
acres have been appropriated with
token payments (by the British
government) and with another mil
lion up for grabs next year.
Things Tranquil
My reporter, who has lived in
Kenya most of his life, says that
things have been tranquil enough

ing that nothing happens to Jomo,
who seems to have a firm grip on
his people as well as his fly-whisk
and his bottle.
"I wouldn't have believed it a
year ago," says my informant,
"but when the old boy spoke to a
big group of white farmers the
other day, they actually cheered
him. He referred to himself as
'that horrid old man, Kenyatta' and
to the settlers as 'you dreadful
damned colonialists' with great hu
mor, and when he said, "Now what
are we going to do about and for
each other?' they cheered them
selves blue."

Pasture's Productivity
Is Reduced By Burning
To The Editor :
Douglas County is blessed with
one of the most beautiful river val
leys in the slate. Yet each late
! summer or fall as we drive up the
iNonii umpqua highway we arc
faced with scorched, blackened
hills and fire killed trees. Not from
lightning, nor even from the care
lessness of travelers, but deliber
ately set by misguided natives on
the pretext that it "gets rid of the
brush and makes better pasture."
Both ideas were demonstrated
years ago lo be erroneous by sci
entific research and good range
management practices. Most soc-
cies of brush are stimulated to
sprout more vigorously and spread
more rapidly following fires. Some
brush seeds actually require heat
ing or burning to make them germ
inate. Equally fallacious is the be
lief that burning makes more and
better grass. Just the reverse is
true. Burning releases largo
amounts of stored nitrogen and
phosphorus when the humus in the
soil surface is destroyed by burn
ing. These minerals so necessary
for grass production arc quickly
leached out and lost with the win
ter rains. Thus, the productivity of
the soil is deteriorating with every i
burn.
Livestock ranchers in California
long ago found that the ncsv bright
green grass on burned pastures
was so succulent and weak in pro
tein that animals often became
sick and died with scours. Leav
volume of high quality forage.
Iwcryone from the President on
down is expressing coneern about
our natural resources; soil, water,
range, forests and even the air.
Even if you don't mind the beauti
ful Hundred Valleys of the limp
qua filled with smoke pari of the
year don't you think someone
should tell some of our local stock
men that Grandpa may have been
right that the grass looks greener
following a iire but stock can't live
on looks and that they arc reducing
the productivity of the land every
lime they set fire to it!
Dr. Walter Lowdermilk, interna
tionally known soil conservation
specialist, put it most eloquently
after reluming from several
months work in the Holy Land. He
felt that had Moses foreseen the
abuse and destruction of the land
and natural resources primarily by
grazing he would have written an
Eleventh Commandment in the fol
lowing vein:
"Thou shalt inherit the holy
earth as a faithful steward,
conserving its resources and
productivity from generation to
generation. Thou shalt protect
thy fields from soil erosion and
thy hills from overgrazing hy
herds, so that thy descendant's
may have abundance forever.
If any shall fail in this steward
ship of the Innd, his fertile
fields shall become sterile
stones and gullies, and his de
scendants shall decrease and
live in poverty or vanish from
the face of the earth."

Statement On Gillnctter

curiosity as to where Mr. Stanton
