ST. JOHNS, PORTLAND, OREGON, FRIDAY, OCTOBER 20, 1922.
(By our Unobserved Observer)
St. Johns is growing more this
year than in any pre-war year in
It seems probable that com
plaining about the high cost of
fuel will be one of the popular
indoor diversions during the com
A careful observer has decided
that many auto accidents might
be avoided in Portland if drivers
would always remember that it
is necessary to give some atten
tion to the car behind the one
ahead of you. It is also import
ant to watch the ear ahead of the
ono behind you.
Any one who regularly reads
the marine news in the daily pa
pers must be 'impressed with the
growing importance of Portland
as a seaport. The lista of vessels
in port and of those arriving and
departing are very satisfactory
IJut the- fact 'in this connection
that is of greatest importance to
St. Johns is that a very largo part
of the cargo carried by the many
ships that como into the harbor
every month is handled through
icrniuiiu io. i.
Ono good citizen of St. Johns
has been disillusioned. N. J.
Bailey has been u resident of St.
JoIuih for many ycors and is the
owner of a very attractive homo
on bouth Ivanhoe Btrcct. In a 11
the years of his residence here he
has been strictly Idyal to St.
Johns and to Oregon, but like
many other men who formerly
lived in the middle west lie has
clung to the belief that that re
gion has certain attractions and
advantages not to be found else
where. Ho remembered tin
prairies and the broad fields of
grain, and he was sure he could
never forget tho flavor of Michi
gan apples. He hud also n natural
desire to visit his old home town.
And ho a couple of months ago
ho decided to start on a long de
layed journey. When tho train
that carried him eastward reach
ed the prairio region he became
impatient to arrive at his destina
tion. The Bcencry became less
interesting; tho distance seemed
A 1 l A . f .
ioo long aim ine tram was too
slow. But journeys in this world
have nM end, and Mr. Bailey 'a
journey to Michigan was no ex
ception. When the train at last
arrived at the little station that
he had kept in fond remembrance
for so many years he alighted
with a joyous feeding of antici
patcd pleasure. But one look at
the town and surrounding conn
try brought disappointment. The
town looked older but not much
larger or more attractive. Many
of the farms and farm houses
seemed to have boon neglected. In
short the signs of great progress
that Mr. Uailey expected to see
were nowhere m evidence. Of
course there' were some amonir
his old time friends who through
industry and prudence had accu
mulated wealth, but there wero
also many who had not. And
when he once more tasted Michl
gan apples he was completely
disillusioned, for he know at
once that Oregon apples are of
better nuality. He enjoyed meet
ing the many friends whom ho
had known in earlier years and
ho had a very pleasant visit, but
lie was soon ready to travel west'
ward again, lie longed to see the
green inns and valleys Hint are
made still more beautiful by the
abundance of roses, in Oregon.
licforc returning home he also
visited in Indiana and in Kan
sas, where he found conditions
much the same as in Michigan.
And now with tho knowledge of
actual conditions in tho middle
west still fresh in his mind he is
more than ever before content to
make Oregon his permanent
Levy Vitally Necessary
Laying its cards squarely on the
table, the city council has issue!
a statement pointing out that ma
terial cuts in vital municipal ser
vice must be made utiles the spe
cial U-mill levy passes at the No
vetuber election. Tho statement
is not issued by way of throat but
simply to point out the existing
emergency in municipal uflairs.
The tax is not new. It has been
twice passed by voters at pre
vious elections. However, th
tax supervision and conservation
commission last week raised a
technical point regarding the
levy. It became mandatory for
the city council to again ask the
electorate to pass the measure to
protect present municipal ser
vice, xno increased taxation is
asked. Persona are crowding
the council at present for nn
provetnents and street lighting.
Funds will not permit extensions.
In view ot this the council points
out the real emergency hovering
over failure to pass tho special
levy. "It would mean cuts of
practically 23 per cent in the bu
reaus of lire and police," Mayor
Baker said. "At present these
departments are under manned
and under equipped. I have nev
er been termed n calamity howler
but a real emnrgeney exists. I
rcpectfully ask voters to pass the
measure in the interests of assur
ing proper municipal service for
the city in vital departments."
A wise old minister, before
parting with a young couple ho
had joined in matrimony, used to
slip a card into the undo s hand
on which was printed the advice
"When you marry him love him.
After you marry him study him.
If he is honest humor him. If ho
Is generous appreciate him. When
he is sad cheer him. When he is
quarrelsome ignore him. If he is
slothful spur him. If he is noble
praise him. If he is confidential
encourage him. If he is secretive
trust him. If he is jealous cure
him. If ho favors society accoin
puny ji i in. when tie docs you a
favor thank him. When he de
serves 'it kiss him. Let him think
how well you understand him;
but never let liim know that you

t rouble with his engine in con
crete mixer, as does every one
who tries to run a mixer with the
little cheap engine that is built
for them; they are most always
under power and unreliable, it is
said. The Columbia Machine
Works and Oarage finally talked
him into mounting tue mixer on
a truck and running with the
truck engine, which they did to
his complete satisfaction. The
truck has ample room for all
equipment. When ready to move
ho loads wheelbarrows, cement
left over.etc, gets on the seat and
