Production is the great problem that confronts the man ana wo
man who is not fighting in this war, as your labor is to get the sup
plies to the front that the fighters need. We are wasting much
laml in Oregon. We are not producing as much as we should.
There lire many acres of land in Oregon that are not in crop and it
i hiuld be in or ready to be put in long .before this tune. Organize
your community to farm every acre. Do it now. It is necessary.
It is imperative. It is urgent.
Nearly 2,000 types and sizes of farm implements which have been
gradually developed by manufacturers during peace-time coin peti
tion have been recommended for elimination during the war by co:u
milteeM of the National Implement and Vehicle Asociation. The
jeet, according to a statement by the Council of National Defense, is
to conserve materials, labor, capital and manufacturing facilities for
BUSINESS ITEM NOTES
REACHING OUT FOR BUSINESS
A aueceaaful town is one that cultivates the i'rieudship and good
will oi its fcurouudmg country. The people who ure adjacent to ydu
appreciate the kindness oi your consideration and support and ,wheu
Uiey need anything that has merit they should have your whole,
nouied suport to get it. Portland followed the old policy oi squee.e
the country dry and build Portland ior many years and the result
was that California, Waahhiglou aud Idaho pulled trade away Irom
her that was rightfully hers. It has only been lor the last two or three
years that alio has had any consideration lor the outlying country
and she has not euough of the i'oresigbtedesa yet to do all she siiould
d, hut she ia awakening. The same principle holds good in thu
small towu. Build up your farming 'community. Uivu them good
loads, make it easy ior them to market their crops, and help them
to grow aud develop aud i'roui a scllish standpoiut you build up your
lowu. Therefore it behooves indepeudeuce to get the spirit.
STAND BY YOUR CANDIDATES
The Republicans of Oregon have chosen their representatives to
represent the party as their choice for different offices now to be
voted upon, it is hoped the party will bo united and will do its ut
raost to elect the candidates they have selected, it yiu believe 111 Uo
publican principles you should vole for Republican, candidates They
can better represent the parly thau the Democrats aud we say
tow lay your prejudices aside. If this campaign has made you i
little bitter to think some favored candidate 1i:ih not wyn, now
jour time to be patriotic as a party man and forget it. The old rul
is that the will of the miuority must be subservient to that of the ma
jority. We must give up a few of our desires and wishes that there
shall be harmony and we trust that this election will prove the rulo
Vhat when the people of a great party chos a man the w hole party
will unitedly back him and elect him.

"Fm afraid that's all I can spare
You're a regular, red-blooded, true-blue Ameri
can. You love your country. You love that flapping,
snapping old flag. Your heart thumps hard when
the troops tramp by. You're loyal 100!
You intend to you want to help win the war
in a hurry.
"Sacrifice? Sure," you've been thinking. "Just
you wait. till they really need it." And you've hon
estly thought you meant that too.
But look yourself in the eye, now, and search up and down in
side of your heart did you mean it? Did you really mean "sacrifice"?
Listen : You feel poor. This third Liberty Loan, the high prices,
the Income Tax you've done your bit You feel that you've given
all you can spare.
What? Then what did you mean? What's that you said about
loving your country? What did you think the word "sacrifice" means?
Surely you didn't mean, did you, to give only what you can spare T
What about our boys who are giving their lives in the trenches?
Are they giving only what they can "spare" ?
How about those mothers and little "kiddies" in the shell-wrecked
towns of that war-swept hell: hungry ragged sobbing alone?
Giving up their homes, their husbands, their fathers. f,
While we over here with our fun and our comforts we hold up
our heads and feel patriotic because we have given what ? Some
loose bills off the top of our roll. "fVe've given all we can spare!"
Come, come ! Let's quit fooling ourselves. Let
us learn what " sacrifice " means. Let us give more
than we can spare let us 'give till the heart says
