Aimed for Public Good
Editor Review: I think the
censor business ia aimed for the
good of the community. If it
needs amending, let it bo amend
ed, but there sure is need of bet
ter training for young people
than the novel reading gives
them. I would strike a blow at
that; I would like to see them
used for kindling fires before
they are read. I don't think
there ought to be one in the Li
brary or anywhere else for sale
or to loan. Of course they are
acted out in the shows and made
more public, but 1 think the de
tails are as vivid to the mind
and memory after reading one
of those love and murder stories
as if you saw it. You could
follow it out just as well. It
doesn't look to mo that there
need be any argument against
the example being for good
rather than evil. Besides the
influence in an immoral or crim
inal way, they have a tendency
to lead one to excess. So you
get in the habit of reading
i them and have no relish for
, sound reading of any value. I
think there should be a law to
prevent the publication of such
i stories, whether in a paper,
magazine or anywhere else. I
am for the community's good.

The Sunset Athletic Club de
feated tho St. Johns Volunteer
Fire department team in a game

best players in tho city, and
with a little nfore practice will
bo able to wrest victory from
most any amateur club. A "jit
ney" dance followed tho game,
which was highly enjoyed. The
tiro department will play tho
James John High basket ball
team tomorrow evening in tho
rink, and it promises to be a
most exciting contest.
A plan which might profitably

sengers on the trains just where
they are at any time, in what
county and the distance to the
state capital and also to the near

signs will be uniform in sizo and
attractive in appearance, it is
expected they will be of great
interest to travelers.

Assuming that in the near
futuro the present fertile farms
of Western Oregon will be in
urgent need of fertilizing ma-
tenals.State Engineer Lewis has
recommended that' some action
bo taken to make use of the
great kelp beds along the Ore
gon coast in order to save the
enormous amount of potash
which is annually going to
waste. He states that it is
comparatively easy to procure
supplies of nitrates and phos
phates, but the principal source
of potash is now closed by the
war. It is believed tho kelp
beds can be made to produce
enough potash for present nnd
futuro needs nnd may also open
up a now and profitable indus
Thero never hns been a timo
in tho history of the state when
tho farmers have had such an
opportunity to mnko money by
raising livestock for meat pur
poses as at present. With an
nggregato shortage of over 3,
000,000 meat animals approxi
mately 800,000,00 pounds, in the
leading pneking centers of the
United States, it is certain that
for somo years to coma there
will not only be an unlimited
demand for meat animals, but it
is also certain that prices will
range high and it is not impos
sible that all previous records
may be broken. It is a fact
that nearly all tho big cattle
ranges of the state have been
broken up nnd that in only a
few locations is it possible to
find pasturage for largo herds,
but it is also a fact that the aver
age farm could bo mado to pro
duce a larger number of animals
than is is now doing. With the
big packers and brokers willing,.
and anxious, to cooperate with
reliable farmers in the state in
stocking farms and ranches, it
would appear that any farmer
who fails to take advantage of
his opportunities in this direc
tion is making a big mistake.
Tho population of the entire
Northwest is increasing at a
ranid rate, tho peoplo must be
supplied with meat, and if Ore
gon ranches cannot meet the
demand it will certainly be met
by other states, a large amount
of money will bo sent away and
tho meat industry of tho stnto
damaged to just that extent.
