Evervbody in the commonwealth is interested in this
year's meeting at Salem. A Portland paper has asked that

should not oulv pray but should fight for its own interests.
Nothing comes to any public institution m a demociacy
these days, even though the pork-barrel legislation era has
passed, without striving for it. The Umerald will endeavor
to show editorially from time to time the relations ol the

Great states from wheat seeds
IT was unprofitable wilderness, most
men thought. But James J. Hill had
faith that it could grow wheat and so he
built his railroad. Settlers turned the
waste-land into wheat-land, the wheat
into wealth, the wealth into great west
ern states.'
Faith in the economic future still points
the way. Right now men in the Bell
System are planting trie seeds or vast pos
sibilities for even better communication.
Out of the belief that the public needs
a broader use of the telephone is grow
ing a constantly improved long distance
telephone service. Like the railroads of
an earlier day, this service is now tapping
and helping to develop rich new terri
tories of commerce.
