Ths sources of the state of mind which supports civilization are edu

believe in maintaining modern civilization for the protection and support
of free government and the development of the economic welfare.
The great teat of an institution is the ability to perpetuate itself. It
seems fairly plain that these institutions can survive with the aid of
higher education. Without it they have not the slightest chance.
We justify the greater and greater accumulation of capital because
we believe that thereupon flows the support of all science, art, learning

NO REASON FOR BEGGING
ON PORTLAND STREETS
No reason exists for any able-bod
ied man in Portland begging food or
lodgin or “mooching” on the streets,
was the substance of a communica
tion issued recently by the American
Legion unemployment committee.
“The unemployment committee has
the Portland situation so well in hand
that there is no justification for any
able-bodied bread winner seeking
alm» in the city,” it said. “We can
give every man st least enough work
each day to provide f«x>d and shelter
for himself and dependent», if any.”
Members of the committee said that
it had come to their attention that
many had availed themselves of the
jobs offered and then had gone to the
Salvation Armv and similar institu
tions to beg lodgings and meals. The
public is asked by the communication
to refer all caught begging to the un

of the precinct with flowers grown in
the precinct by the boys and girls.
Assistance of the men and wo men

points the boy or girl who does all ef
the work will gain in points.
The committee is especially anxious
that sweet peas be planted at once se
that they will be in bloom by June 8.
Any good seed catalogue will give
full directions or the Portland seed
houses will do so.
All rose bushes should be carefully
pruned, fertilized and sprayed at one*
