P.*T. A. HEARS MR. BROCKWAY
The regular meeting of the Parent-

achooihouse last Friday afternoon

■peaker was James E. Brockway, Boy
Scout aaarutivr of Portland, who
spoke o« the work of his organization
and gave some pertinent suggestions
for the handling of boys at what ho
designated the “gang age,’’ 11 to 16.
“It is then,” he said, in a manner
direct and forceful, “that a boy’s
character is formed for good or bad,
and the influences that stay with him
for life exerted. The gangs that at
thia period feature a boy’s life, he

•tractive It to up to parents to sec
that the gangs with whom their boys
are identified are of the right sort.
“Here," continued Mr. Brockway,
“to where the Boy Scout organisation
comm in with instraction along tho
lines moot important to the growing
youngster and exerts an influence for
good in the framing of character that
nothing should supplant. In the home,"
the speaker said, “there must be
team work. Father and mother must
be of one opinion in dealing with chil
dren, and honesty, reverence, sobriety
sad loyally at thto time more than al
any other must be instilled. Here
cleanliness of person and of nund—
must be cultivated."
Co-operation with tho teacher* at
school also was held to be a prime
essential in a boy's life at thia time,
for it to in school that the boy comes
into contact with tho first element of
law and order and authority. It to
imperative in the formation of a boy’s
character that early in life be learn 1
promptness and acquire habits of
regularity. He should have a time
for getting up, fixed hours formeala,
for study and for play, and nothing
should be permitted to interfere with
this program. What to best for the
boy should always be the thought and
wish of parents.

Monday the baseball boys were
overjoyed on being presented with a
new catcher's mit by Mr. Thaxter.
At the beginning of the term George
Trenary, catcher, used Bud McDay’s
mitt, but Bud moved away from
Lents. Then George used the old last
year’s mitt until someone borrowed
it without bis permission. The new
mitt ia much appreciated.
On account of wet grounds and
rain, the ball team did not play the
Kellog baseball aggregation Tuesday
as they had planned.
The l-cntx team played the Wood-
stock boys Monday. They went down
to defeat, 14 to 4. During the first
of the game, I xmls scored two runs
while the opposing players got runs
rather regularly. In the seventh
inning, however, Lents started a rally
which netted them two more runs.

M'ARTHUR NTATEN HIS PONTOON
Candidate Nays Why He Is Opposed
to Bonus for Ex'Soldiers.
Congressman C. N. McArthur in a
speech delivered in the House of Rep
resentatives on March 23, 1922, in
relation to the bonus bill, pending be
fore the house, claims that conditions
at present are vastly different from
those that existed two years ago and
it is his opinion that the American poa-
ple cannot stand the additional taxes
which will result from the enactment
of this measure and as the country ia
now staggering under an enormous
burden of indebtedness, it only signi
fies that with further taxation in the
immediate future, would mean more

pression and disastrous economic dis

should become a law, it will afford
only a small measure of financial

and borrow on the same at a bank,
but that the sum total of the
money which the treasury depart
ment must raise to redeem these
hypothecated certificates on October
1, 1925, will, according to reliable
estimates, amount to 8650,000,000 and
the immediate cash payment and ex
penses of administration will amount
to not less than $80,000,000 addi

the disabled and infirm soldiers, and
has done so whole-heartedly and un
grudgingly, he believes that congress
is fullfilling every obligation in this !
respect, but ventures to say that the
country does not look with favor upon 1
the pending measure. He claims that
the increase in taxation—national,
state and local—has reached such
alarming proportions that the people
in every secion of the country are de
manding retrenchment along all lines.
Mr. McArthur contends that every
dal lor tied up in such certificates
withholds a dollar from the channels •
of business, industry and agriculture,
where especially at this time money
is badly needed. The measure is
faulty, because it does not provide a
sinking fund or amortization plan for
the redemption of the adjusted-serv ■
ice certificate in 1925. This, conse .
quently means that the necessary
funds must be raised by additional
taxation, and the burden will natural
ly fall on the backs and stomachs of
His contention is, that the only
proper alternative is a postponement
of the measure in accordance with the
president’s suggestion, until the coun
try is in a more normal financial con
dition and the country’s indebtedness
has been reduced materially. This
country is now staggering under a
debt of nearly $25,000,000,000 and as
money does not grow on trees and the
wealth of the country is not in
creased by printing money, it would
be best for all concerned that this
measure for the present should be
cither amended or postponed until
conditions present themselves that
will warrant a real bonus for the ex
During Mr. McArthur’s
terms in congress, he said he has

in behalf of an ex-soldier, but be

now pending will result in no benefit
to him whatsoever.

Chapter From the History of Paul
Paul Bunyan was a famous logger.

General Braddock over the Allegheny
mountains. He waa bead swamper
then and the forest waa so dense that
the army made only a mile a day.
‘ Slash ’em and burn ’em,” said Paul.
"It will be a million years before
anyone will need these trees.” Never
theless, we are now paying $50 per
leg for dining tables made from what
little ia left of those hardwood for

Kw, Paul got rich, and would have
d happily ever after, thus ending
the story— if the timber had held out.
But it didn’t, and Paul went flat
broke, and hastened away to the yel
low pine woods of the south, where
he took a contract falling timber.
“Cut the stumps high.” £uoth Paul,
"There is timl>*r enough here to sup
ply the earth forever.” But soon the
cam|0 began to close down and the
mills began to disappear, and when
the boss said “Cut ’em low,” Paul
Bunyan quit and started for the Pa-
cific northwest, where there was
plenty of timber and no need of be
ing so particular.
But ne got an eye opener when
he crossed the treeless plains. It
gave him something to think about.
“Great Scott.” cried Paul, a* he slid
over the Cascades. '‘They r are bum-

wood to waste.” So Paul got a job
as fire warden, the moral of which
is that it is a wise man who knows
