will be pin in earnest next Monday.
This will give the campaigners two
weeks in which to educate the public

fi. sort of co-operative agreement among
the various campaign committees to the
end that each one is doing what it can
Jo help the others.
Four measures have organizations
fcchind them. These are the recon
struction bill, the Roosevelt highway
measure, the irrigation programme and
(the market road tax.

Wnole State to Co-operate.
It was early agrreed between the ad
vocates of the Roosevelt highway and
the irrigationists that in union there is
strength. Western Oregon is not per
sonally interested In irrigation, but it
does want the highway. Eastern Ore
gon is not directly benefited by the
highway, but needs all the water it
can get. This being the case, the men
behind these measures agreed that re
ciprocity would be a good thing and
that the highway and the irrigation
projects are of general benefit to Ore
gon. In all the speeches heretofore made
or the Roosevelt highway or the ir
rigation measure, the reconstruction
programme has been advocated as it
links into the policy of developing the
