OLD man Oregon has a sore foot. He doesn’t like
it. He cuts off his leg at the knee._The foot no
longer hurts. Clever, eh, what?
The people in this state must realize the eon
amendment. It must not be passed!
amendment. It must not be pased!
It has never been the policy of the people of this
state to follow the dictates of a group of citizens
representing a single vocational interest in the ad
vancement of an impetuous and narrowly drafted
amendment to the constitution.
Yet at a time, when the nerves of the people are
frayed by the constant irritation of a cankering de
pression, when money and jobs are scarce as hens’
teeth, and the public conscience is dulled to things
other than the conservation of their own dollars and
cents—a single group of a single community in this
state flashes before the weary eyes of the public
the seductive proposal for the ruinous reduction of
taxes. And in the absence of some alternative plan,
it is unfair and unsound.
If those who prattle about the inevitability of the
adoption of some substitute measure really envision
its acceptance, why, in Jove's name do they not
couple it to their bill and attempt its justification f
This paper submits that in the absence of some
justification, the bill is not condusive to the best in
terests of the state but is aocuatcd by selfishness
on behalf of those sponsoring it.
It is embarrassing to contemplate the passage of
this bill by the state of Oregon.
Here is a state, one of forty-eight, fighting its
way valiantly out of the throes of a sickening de
pression. But the fight is too tought, the money too
scarce, and the pace too hot. The state breaks. It
races off on a tantrum of an un-advised slashing of
taxes. Schools are crippled. Not hurt, but crippled!
Governmental budgets wounded far beyond repair,
and a prospect for recovery as remote as odds on
the adoption of a sales tax four times the size of the
one defeated twice by a two to one count.What pub
licity! What prestige!
This sounds over-drawn and absurd ? It is
Please, it is very true. The bill must be ana
lyzed. Hasty or apathetic judgement if not a crime
against the state, will leave it in a pretty a very
Read the bill. Study it. And then kill it.
Washington Spraks A^aiu
^“><EORGK Washington, history informs us, was a
wise and farsighted leader. The “Father of
His Country ’ might well be living in Oregon today.
Were he here guiding the destinies of this common
wealth he could offer no more sagely advice to the
constituency regarding the proposed 20-mill tax
limitation amendment than the words he uttered in
his farewell address in September. 1790.
George Washington cautioned the people lie loved
As a very important source of strength and
security, cherish public credit. One method of
preserving it is to use it as sparingly a-s pos
sible, avoiding occasions of expense by culti
vating peace, but remembering also that timely
disbursements to prepare for danger frequently
prevent much greater disbursements to repel it
—avoiding likewise the accumulation of debt,
not only by shunning occasions of expense, but
by vigorous exertions in time of peace to dis
charge the debts which unavoidable wars have
occasioned, not ungenerously throwing upon
posterity the burden which v. c our.ehci ought
to bear. The execution of these maxims belongs
to your representatives, but it is necessary that
public opinion should co-operate. To facilitate
to them the performance of their duty, it is es
ential that you should practically bear in mind
that toward the payment of debts there must
be revenue—that to have revenue there must be
taxes—that no taxes can be devised which are
not more or less inconvenient and unpleasant—
that the intrinsic embarrassment inseparable
from the selection of the proper objects (which
is always a choice of difficulties) ought to be
a decisive motive for a candid construction of
the conduct of the government in making it,
and for a spirit of acquiescence in the measures
for obtaining revenue which the public exigen
cies may at any time dictate.
305 X No
'T'UESDAY, thinking people of Oregon will go to
the polls and vote 305x No on the proposed heal
ing arts constitutional amendment. Voters who have
studied the measure know that such an amendment
does not belong in the constitution. They realize that
Oregon’s “basic science law’’ should be retained.
They know that high health and hospital standards
could not be upheld if the amendment were passed.
They are aware that the passage of this bill would
eliminate the medical staff at the University and
other Oregon institutions. Also that the bill would
jeopardize the workmen's compensation act.
The medical field has long been recognized as a
profession. In late years standards have been raised
and the field has become selective. The healing arts
amendment would change this profession to a “busi
ness” handled by incompetent and untrained “doc
tors.” Thinking people of Oregon will vote the
Smith and Schmidt
QMITH hates socialists, abhors communists. “Send
^ them back to Russia," he says. “Look at the
strikes. Bunch of I.W.W.’s, anarchists, communists,
socialists.” They’re all the same to him. He doesn’t
know one from another—hates them, though. They
are "un-American.” Smith won’t try to explain his
hatred for radicals. He can’t. It is a repulsion deep
within him. It is like eating snails, or birds’-nests, or
driniking beer with an ice-cream float. Radicals’
tactics are one thing: “Always sticking up for some
guy like Mooney—you know, that guy that shot
someone, or something—or those Scottsborough ne
groes, who are plenty guilty.” But, all in all, his
hatred is a confused totality that seems to be a part
of his nature, inexplainable.
Here is Schmidt. Schmidt is a communist. He’ll
tell you so. “You would be too, if you could see how
rotteply they treat the workingmen- -the thieving,
greedy money-bags of capitalism.” Schmidt doesn't
know a great deal about the economics of commun
ism. He has read any number of pamphlets on it.
The pamphlets' and papers have guided his views on
capitalism. It doesn’t take a great deal of economics
anyway to see what a rooking the laboring man
gets. And, with him, there is a connection between
capitalism and the lynching of a negro in Texas,
a thing his whole idea of the brotherhood of man
protests against—even though it was a mob largely
composed of working-men that committed the act.
Something of emotion, not mind, guides both
Smith and Schmidt. Smith and Schmidt are repre
sentative each of his group, unreasoning conserva
tive and unreasoning radical. Of course there are
conservatives who can present their cases logically.
Many there are of a radical bias, too, who can take
their stand with cold logic. But as a whole, emotion,
not fact, rules the popular mind.
It is a thing we must resist. Our problems must
be exposed in the light of the facts. Logic must
build from these facts. And, if a man, like the pro
vost at the University of California at Los Angeles,
says that he will never countenance an open forum
of students, and calls for intolerance of the discus
sion of new ideas, he should be resisted.
The (Carnegie Room
HATEVER cultural implications may or may
' " not be drawn from the current collegiate
scene, and under what cloaking of obscurity the ap
preciation of the arts is being forwarded, a univer
sity, despite the clamor of the hyper-critical aes
thete, cannot be regarded as totally devoid of cultur
al and intellectual stimuli. As Plato has adequately
remarked, culture and the intellectual approach are
not things that can be poured into the student; they
must be arrived at by a devious inward course, and
it can be safely said that the province of the uni
versity consists of the presentation of the opportun
ities for thought, which may or may not be put to
; their logical use according to the nature and capa
bilities of the student.
it is as a means to this laumlabic end that the
Carnegie Institute functions, a corporation that has
in the past been the backer of numerous beneficial
research problems in the University. The latest op
portunity the Carnegie Institute has afforded stu
dents is in the installation of an audition room in
the music building, equipped with an excellent re
producing machine, nearly a thousand recordings,
scores of hundreds of other musical opera, and a lib
rary of musical criticism and history under the su
! pervision of a trained librarian.
| The audition chamber is open at scheduled hours
, for students and their friends; it is the hope of the
| apportioning committee that the musical library will
i serve in much the same status and capacity as the
i orthodox library, a spot where the student may go
to study and be entertained, save with the folio in
the place of the tome, the companionship of the
world's greatest virtuosi in lieu of that of the nov
elist. The integrated conception of music, as of any
art. can come only after meditation and inward con
j cent ration, and it is to be hoped that the Carnegie
i facilities will provide the opportunity for these
means to the ultimate perception of music as a coa
i cmuutcd unity of feeling and expression.

The Austrian Vote
¥F press dispatches from Spain
show nothing- else, it is the fact
that Premier Alejandro Lerroux
and his coalition cabinet will have
no release from the constant bar
rage of Leftist pressure during
the next few months. The recent
Catalonian rebellion came to a
very unsatisfactory conclusion
from the point of view of all sides.
Although ostensibly crushed, in
reality no striking blow was de
livered against the syncretistic un
ion of socialists, communists and
Catalonian secessionists who rose
against the Madrid government
Secession in Spain?
Not only Catalonia, but also As
turias, Old Castile, Leon and the
Biscayan provinces are still seeth
ing with discontent, most of which i
points to either one of two meas- 1
ures, i. e., the secession of the ,
norther provinces from Spain and
the establishment of an indepen- |
dent state or the overthrow of the j
conservative party in Madrid and
the establishment of a socialistic
or communistic dictatorship.

Tightmouthed is Madrid, and
foreign correspondents are not be

city, Oviedo, but it is pretty evi
dent that the working conditions
among the miners and laborers in
northern Spain are far from satis

dissatisfaction of the working
classes with the age-old desire for
Catalonian and Biscayan indepen
dence, anything is liable to happen

as to the true national affiliations

must be understood as something
far more fundamental than mere
