support of the compulsory school
bill. The statement, while dated

given to the press until yesterday.
.tne document being- brought to
Portland from Bngeoe.
La Grande, Or., Sept. 3. 1922.
Taxes are taking-, each year, on
mo average, a per cent ot tne
equalized value of real property in
Oregon. inis equalized value i:
very close to the real or selling
vveaitn does not Increase 6 per
crni. annuauy. ine average in
crease through a number of years
is. perhaps. 3 per cent. Rapidly the
tar line is approaching increase of
wealth. On the average, taxes take
more than one-half of the economic
rent. This means that the owners
of real property are soon going to
noia oniy tne empty husk, the ker
nel having been taken through the
rms oi taxation.
Tax Cut All-Important.
In the face nf such fnt Vita
Is but one question today in Ore
gon tax reduction. We must re
duce to the lowest possible limit;
we must spread out the load so
that all shall bear their just share.
Many people wonder why a re

been forced to the front in this
state this year, when we are in such

I am a Protestant, the ninth gen

I shall continue until the Novem

where I stand on all questions that
affect state welfare. That is the
reason for making this statement

THAT ever louder and more
I insistent cry for something
new comes an answer "Dusk
to Dawn," which opens at the Heilig
theater today. It is a King Vidor
production starring Florence Vidor
and presented by Associated Ex
"Dusk to Dawn" is entertainment
aimed to pack a wallop, for the
heart, the mind and the emotions
and if succeeds. The heart throbs
for the romances of the two girls
whose lives are so strangely bound
The mind is stimulated by the
fact that the story, almost unbe
lievable though it seems, is based
on definite, authentic cases. It does
not, however, attempt to work out
any problem; prove any theory, nor
settle any argument.
The emotions are exercised by
tho heroic struggle of one girl to
clear her brother of the stigma of
forgery, to prevent the family
honor being stained; to quench her
love because, not being master of
her twin soul, she thinks she has
no right to love. Then there is the
other girl the vivacious, fiery,
passionate beggar dancing girl who
is loved and wed to a man far above
her in station.
Then comes the final climax when
one girl dies. What will happen to
the other life? Baffling, intriguing
and dramatic is "Dusk to Dawn,"
evenly told, beautifully mounted, I
and perfectly acted by Miss Vidor,
who plays both roles, and a meri
Harold Lloyd in "Grandma's Boy"
made such a mirth-house of the
Heilig that Manager Pangle has
been scouting around for another
uproarious comedy hit. ' He em
phatically declares that . he has
found it in "One Terrible Day," a
Hal Roach two-reel comedy, which
is declared by all who have pre
viewed it to be a pronounced comedy
hit. It will be on the same bill.
Norma Talmadge in "The Eternal
Flame" opens at the Liberty the
ater today. Manager Paul Noble
has issued a statement declaring
that when "Smilin' Through" was
shown ho advertised that the screen
had offered its best. He does not
exactly go back on that statement.
It held good with him until he pre
viewed "The Eternal Flame." He
admits that he stands corrected and
that "The Eternal Flame" com
pletely outclasses "Smilin" Through."
Dorothy Dalton in the sensa
tionally intriguing super-feature
"The Siren Call" has been booked
for showing by the Majestic the
ater, according to announcement by
J. J. Parker, the general manager.
Mr. Parker has signed up a very

Things You'll Love to
A Picture Uuilt Will Amuse
It is often a difficult thing to
keep a fretful or ill child amused.
Make a picture quilt and see how
the little one will enjoy it. Un
bleached muslin is serviceable for
the quilt. Cut pictures out of a
linen story book. Baste them on to
the quilt. If you have time it will
be prettier to applique the pictures
with colored wool. Make" a scalloped
edge. When the little one tires of
the pictures, or if they become
soiled or torn, you can easily repVace
them. Any child will be interested
in the pictures and will keep amused
for a long time. FLORA.

ROME, Sept. 12. Th fascisti are
planning to ' bring , Italy back to
wartime rations within fo'ur months,
the Tribune correspondent learned
at the fascisti general secretariat
in Rome today. .
"Earn more, spend . less," is the
slogan. To do this, besides work
ing harder and increasing produc
tion in the mills and factories, the
Italians will be called upon to save
every cent possible. They will be
asked to eat black bread iaily and
meat only thrice weekly, return to
sugar cards, and prohibit the im
portation of luxuries.
A proviso is being contemplated
whereby foreigners will hot be af
fected by the new regulations,
leaving them free to get all they
desire. The fascisti declare they
freed the Italians from the social
ists and all they desire is to become
again intensely patriotic and-are
now ready to make a sacrifice for
the nation's economic reconstruc
tion. - The return to war rations
will be only the first step in a pro
gramme to rehabilitate Italian
finances. The programme includes
many other radical reforms, among,
