Public Service Commissioner Wil­

always magnified and put forward
prominently, is the alleged necessity
of the utility for more money.
When it i» considere«! that in Port­
land no attempt has been made to in­
crease rates for electric lighting, in
which two »operate concerns com­
pete, the <iuestion naturally arises,
why different principles are applied
to the construction of rates for com­
petitive M rvice and for monopolistic
service, and how it happens that
competing companies are able to car­
ry on without appealing to the pub­
lic for increased rates.
Must the public fight against mon­
opoly an<l encourage competitivo ser
vice with its attendant economic loss
and duplication of facilities to nro-
tect itself against unbridled exac­
tions or should the public service
commission take into consideration,
in connection with an application to
raise public utility rates, whether
competition has been stifled.
The history of the acquisition of
the Home Telephone 4 Telegraph
Co.’» property by the Pacific Tele­
phone 4 Telegraph Co. is decidely
uertinent at this time in its relation­
ship to the repeated granting of in­
creased rates to the existing monop ;

no increase in Portland telephon--

“I Believe That Every Girl Should Be
Trained to Do Something.”
Dy MISS MABEL BOARDMAN, District of Columbia Commissioner.
Du I think a young woman sliould enter public
service provided she has the inclination? That de-
pends upon arcunutances; family conditions most
always playing a large part in a woman’s decision.
Her first duty lies at home, and nothing can ever
change that
On the other hand, I believe that every girl—
rich or poor—should be trained to do something,
either by which she could make a living or by which
she could benefit humanity. There is no excuse for
an absolutely selfish existence. Every womar., with the
possible exception of the young mother with a growing
family, should find some opportunity for public service
work. I believe in beginning early to educate for citizenship. The children
should be made to realize that citizenship means service. I also believe
that in the schools girls should be given some special business instruction
and, in fact, all possible equipment that will help to fit them for their
particular niche in life. What the “particular niche” may be is a hard
question to answer. You can’t lay down any law because it all depends on
the woman herself—the circumstances of her environment, her training,
talent and, most important of all, her inclination.
As to the rewards and disappointments of a career of public service,
women are young yet in their new field of opportunity. But 1 believe
they are going to be less material than men; that when they go into pub­
lic service they have bigger objectives and will therefore have bigger re­
wards. Of course, they will have the same disappointments that men
have, added to the sacrifices women have to make when they enter public
life that men do not.
As a matter of fact, I believe women are betteT fitted for municipal
positions than they are for national, that their breadth of human sym­
pathy and understanding of civic problems enable them to do a much
bigger municipal work. In the Red Cross, for instance, the national
work is such a huge undertaking that unless we had given women some­
thing to interest them in a local way we never <x>uld have moved them.

her efforts entirely that the work
was done so quickly and so well. Mr
Reece and son Donald, father an«'
brother respectively of Fred Reece of

painters and interior decorators foi

Book Review Contest
The book review contest at Arleta

interesting. Besides the regular con­

pleasingly, “What’s the Good of Be­

Me”. Miss Peck, librarian at the
East Side library, acted as judge.
Her criticism was very constructive
and fully as interesting as the re­
views. She graded three points; de­
livery, composition and delivery and
the review itself.
Arleta school was represented by
Inez Hutchinson, whoee subject was
“Mill on The Floss” and by Elaine
Stokes, who took “Merchant of Ven­
ice”. Joseph Kellogg was represent­
ed by Clarence Gilman, whoso sub­
ject was “Call of the Wild” and Hel­

The judge decided in favor of El­
aine Stokes of Arleta as first winner
and Ruth Meeker of Creston, who

program was verv good and worthy
of a bigger audience than was pres­
ent. It is a good work in which the
parents should be interested and co­
operate with the pupils.
