61YE TAXPAYERS SQUARE DEAL
There is a scheme on foot to
wipe out the present delinquent tax
taw now In effect In Oregon. Those
kehind the plan would substitute in
its place a piece of pernicious legis
lation, cleverly devised by the Port
land Journal and a certain clique
' at politicians.
The scheme is a clever one at first
observation and by reason of the fact
that one of the backers of the pro
posed change is a man of independent
wealth at the head of a Portland pa
per, the columns of that paper the
Portland Journal have been thrown
pen to further the measure and be
fuddle the voters' niinJs ot the com
ing election. By smooth camouflag
ing of the facts, and sometimes by
direct misrepresentation the voters
are led to believe that the propos
ed measure is one originated and to
be passed entirely in their own in
terest. This is the influence that comes
from reading the Portland Journal's
propaganda for the abolishment ot
the present delinquent tax bill now
in force in the State of Oregon. .
The editor of this paper is not in
the habit of instructing his readers
kow to vote in various elections. As
rule we consider the voter will sup
port the measures he believes to be
at worth, and register his protest
with a vigorous "NO" on useless or
pernicious legislation. This is the
title usually followed by the country
newspaper man, but when direct mis
representation of fact is resorted to
in an effort to lure the favor of the
oting public, it is high time that the
voters are advised of true conditions.
Therefore the editor of this paper
kas the following statement to make
to the readers of this paper:
The present delinquent tax law was
passed by the State Legislature of
Oregon, the men you and I sent to Sa
lem to represent us in affairs of state.
It ie a fair law, devised in the in
terest ot the taxpayer, to give him a
square deal in the hour of emergency,
and to protect him in that hour from
the tax title vulture and the schem
ing land attorney. It provides for the
publication of the delinquent tax iist.
It is true, but it also provides and
this is the part of the law the Port
land Journal would have you over
look that publication of the delin
quents shall only be made after a
nailed notice has been sent out, reg
ularly advising the delinquent that
bis taxes have not been paid. The
publication, therefore is but an em
ergency measure, to be resorted to
only when personal notice has failed
The taxpayer should quickly real
ize the practical value of such a law.
Suppose you were away for the time
being. Or let us assume you have
changed your address. In either
case a mailed statement would in all
probability fail to reach you. Some
time k.ter. the delinquent list is pub
lished in the home paper, and your
friends, relatives, or neighbors notice
immediately that you have overlook
ad your taxes, and hasten to drop
ion a line. They know where you are
the tax collector doesn't bother
about you unless you notify him of
The result? The title grabber, that
pecIiar pest who is always loitering
about the books in the tax office, los
es a chance to buy your place for a
song, and you are saved the embar
rassment and work of redeeming your
place. This is the present law, and
this is exactly the way it works out.
Jackson, working with a certain
Portland attorney would cut out the
publication requirment of the present
few. He would end the matter once
nd for all with the sending of notice
through the mail. If you fail to get
it, under his scheme, you are the los
er, and some tax title vulture will
then pick up some easy money and
you will foot the bill. Such is the bill
proposed by Jackson and Hagood.
Xill it if you would confer a fayor on
the taxpayers of Oregon. Vote "NO"
en the Jackson delinquent tax bill.
SAVE THE PITS!
Next week the High School
will commence to gather the var-
ious fruit pits: peach, plum,
eherry, etc. This work has been
assigned the Freshman class who
"will make a systematic collection
about the town. 20 peach pits,
ck seven pounds of nuts are
sufficient to produce enough
" carbon to make one gas respir-
ator. The government will send
bags and bills of lading to the
schools making such colections.
The government asks that the
pits be clean.

MILK AS STRENGTH
Dr. Mae Cardwell, Back From
Dr. Mae H. Cardwell, of Portland,
who recently returned to Oregon from
Gary, Ind., New York and Washington,
where she was engaged in medical re
search work for the Children's Bureau
of the Department of Labor, said in
n Interview: "The dairy Industries
must be encouraged. The children of
America must have milk. They can
not thrive without good clean milk.
Housewives must use more milk. If
they demand R the dairyman will find
some solution to his problems and will
see that his cowi get the feed and that
he keeps them alive and In good
health. However, If the women don't
order the milk, the dairyman isn't go
ing to keep hit cows around Just as
pets and ornaments. Feed Is too
scarce and labor too high tor that It's
up to the housekeepers.
"Are you sending your breadwinners
to work with all the vigor and strength
you can muster for them In the way of
proper food?" asks Dr. CardwelL "If
they don't get the right food they can't
think or work well. The same applies
to the school children. See that they
have milk to drink; milk in puddings.
The kitchen Is the power plant of the
family and consequently, of the nation.
Don't waste a drop of milk or an
ounce of butter, but use plenty. The
health of the nation is the kitchen
question. Milk is one of the main
factors In a diet"
Baby Expert Preaches Greater Use
A milk bill and healthy children is
cheaper than a doctor's bill and an
underfed, under-nourished child. It
would be cheaper to start right. So
says Mrs. A. Bayley, of the Parents'
Educational Bureau, Oregon Congress
of Mothers, who has presided at the
testing of thousands of babies. She
finds the milkfed youngster of three
or four years scores much higher than
the child who has had little milk In
his diet Mrs. Bayley preaches a
greater use of milk for young and old.
Dairy Commissioner Sees Encouraging
J. D. Mlckle, State Dairy and Food
Commissioner, stated recently that the
dairy situation, in spite of high prices
of feed and scarcity of labor, is not all
gloom. Reports have come to him
from various parts of the state show
ing that the housekeepers are begin
ning to see that they must pay more
for milk than they did a few years ago.
The dairymen are beginning to take
heart, too, in some instances and are
looking to the future when the cow
of today will be worth much more
money alive than she would now,
slaughtered. And that future Isn't so
far off if the dairymen only continue
to have courage and patience.
The wise man and the one who Is
far-seeing, is keeping his herds intact
True, he won't keep the old boarder
who would just eat the food and bring
no returns, but he is holding his good
stock. The sensible housewife, too,
must know a man can't feed and care
for cows, keep a first class dairy, and
provide clean battles and well paid
deliverymen wi'hout some expense.
The Oregon Dairy Council Is doing
much to get the situation straightened
out. The exhibit at the state fair, the
splendid cooperation of the Food Ad
ministration, the public schools, Ore
gon Agricultural College and the Bu
reau of Health, all help the educational
work and are part of the great task of
"keeping the home fires burning,"
which task Includes the preservation
of essential home industries and the
health of the nation.
A farmer may slaughter his dairy
herd In three hours but he could not
replace It in three years.
