There is no longer a vast public domain for
the soldier to step Into and possess. The
fertile prairies of Minnesota, North and
South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas and own
have Long been in private ownership, The
lands that are left are cither arid, swamp or
cut over lands for the reclamation and nj

After the Civil war thousands of the

the returned veteran of the (iceman war.
Unlets the government takes adequate
steps to provide for the reclamation of the
arid, swamp or cut over lands there will be
no easy palhvvav for the veteran of the pies
Hut the government is anticipating the
problem of the future veteran. Secretary of
the Interior, Franklin K. Lane, m a recent
report to Congress recommends the survey
of UM seventeen million acres of t ilia hie gov
eminent land, its classification and prepara
tion for development so that the men fight

so chose, to start life anew when the wa;

If the Secretary 's plans arc carried out
Oregon is bound to profit thcrebv, Several
million acres of the government land are h
this state. Not a small quantity, by aui
means, is here in Malheur county. The
Owyhee project akmeha n 25,000 to
30,000 acres. In. Jordan Vallei on Willow
Creek there are thousands of other acres
susceptible to irrigation and there is a vast
.ma on Dead 0 j Plat capable of almost un
limited production. In all there must he

county that might well he considered in the
government 's plans.
Some id' these projects, the OWJ hec for

possibilities arc known, hut some of the
others an not so fortunate. Now is the time
when th people of tin county, in ail eeetioiis

THE AWAKENING OF THE HUN
According to press dispatches emanat
illfn from Holland and Switzerland, the peo
ple of Germany are at last awakening to the
fact that thev arc a defeated nation. The re
cognition of this fact la not complete, hut i
Perhaps the most significant state
ments are those which ecru the preset le
nt American troops in the Western hatth
line. I he .Junkers are now paving the nric
of their deception. Until the great defeat on
the Manic thev told the people thru their
controlled press that there were hut a ft
thousand Americans in kluiopc and the
were untrained fighters. Now the people
know differently Thev must he eel I
that there is a full million Americans li it 1 1 1 1 ,
the lliudeuhiirg line, and that fchej can hit
hard they must also admit. Even the imvv
inspired Yorvvcarts warns the (ieiinau j
pie that they must be prepared to admit t
the war is not v et won, and that it can he !
That is a great admission from even the S.
i lallst mouthpiece.
Reports from many sources indicate
that the morale of the Herman people is low.
The lower it is the better. When it reaches
the bottom, the German army will be a de
feated organization. One of the means
which the Junkers are usitig to brace th
wills of the people is by reprinting "hate
stories and "hate speeches which an
limited and spoken here in America and oth
er allied countries. The men who inaki
tlnse speeches and the papers that prut
tin ni Have no utca tlial tin arc playing the
Junkers' game hut that is the result. When
the militarists of Germany uet poser nniiui if
