THE SUNBAT OREGOXIA3T, PORTLAND,. JUNE 25. 1923 '
Poor Unable to Campaign,
THREE VIEWS OF PRESIDENTS REPRESENTATIVE, AT ROSE FESTIVAL WHO LEFT
NEWBERRY HELD VICTIM
t'se of Large Sums Declared Nec
essary to Get Nomination
Under Present System.
Although formerly a vigorous op.
ponont of woman suffrage. Miss
Alice M. Robartson, by quirk, ot
tat ,1a the only woman member of
congress. 6ha ia the lady from
Oklahoma who, as the personal rep
resentative of President Harding,
has been a guest of Portland the
past week, during the Rose Festival.
She may not be much on style, but
Miss Robertson certainly has posi
tive ideas on polities.
"My grandfather believed that the
laws dealing with the Indiana were
illegally passed, and he spent two
years in prison as a result,, ex
plained Miss Robertson, at the
Multnomah. "I am proud of him
and his courage. I was state chair
man of the anti-suffrage committee,
but when the people adopted the
amendment I bowed my head to the
will of. the majority and began
taking an interest in politics. Mow
that women have the ballot they
should exercise It.
Party Government Indorsed.
"Right from the -start I want to
declare," observed Miss Robertson,
"that I believe In party government.
There should be two great parties;
It Is the only way. I believe, too,
in the convention system.
"One day, when Satan down be
low had nothing to do, he conceived
a scheme for the ruination of Amer
ica, and he invented the direct pri
mary system. It is a curse on this
country. Under the direct primary
law the rich man is the nominee.
It cannot be otherwise. Look at
Pennsylvania, where Pinchot spent
$200,000, all in a legitimate manner.
Ford hag been advertising for years
and has spent a fortune getting his
name before the public. Newberry
was censured for money spent in
advancing his cause, yet Newberry
and his friends did not begin to
spend the sum which Henry Ford
had used in advertising.
Newberry Considered Innocent.
Newberry, I believe, was Innocent
of violating the law In Spending
money. If I had been in the senate
I would have voted to seat New
berry and -clear him. He was, in a
way, the victim of the direct pri
mary. "No poor man can be elected un
der the direct primary, for the only,
way a candidate can make a show
ing is through the newspapers and
newspaper advertising space costs
money. Unless a man is particu
larly well known and circumstances
are in his favor he cannot compete
in a direct primary against a man
of large means.
"I believe that this feature of the
primary system is now fairly well
recognized by the thinking people
throughout the United States. The
primaries are disintegrating the
two main political parties."
. , Mine Sinrders Disenssed.
Miss Robertson carefully packed
some damp paper around a box of
rose blossoms which she was pre
paring to ship to San Francisco be
"Look at the news from Illinois,"
said she, "with 30 or more miners
murdered. Think of that in the
heart of civilization. I hold no brief
for capital nor for labor, but one
cannot live without the other. If
an Income tax is adopted in Ore
gon and manufacturers move to
Vancouver, Wash., or elsewhere,
what will become of the consum
ers? Feet and hands cannot live
without the rest of the body. Em
ployers and labor are linked so
closely together that it is impossible
for one to exist without the other.
Farmers Are Blamed.
"I am told that the farmer vote
In Oregon has brought about much
of the legislation which this state
has. and. that the farmers are back
ing the income tax measure. My
father used to say that the farmer
was the most Intelligent citizen in
America, because he read little and
thought a great deal. Now, I am
convinced, the farmer is the great
est reader In this country, and
reading Is a good thing, provided
that the right-material is read. The
farmer has more time to read than
formerly, and he avails himself of
the opportunity, but some of the
things that he reads are not funda
"The big and vital questions are
frequently overlooked. There was
a hearing In Washington before a
congressional committee on a sub
ject in which women felt an appeal
There were flappers and grandmoth
ers present; there were poorly
dressed women and women in silks.
The room was not large enough to
nola au or tne women who en
deavored to attend.
Wme Avoid Coal Hearing.
There was also a hearing on the
coal situation. It continued for
weeks, and never was a woman
present, and yet the subject of fuel
affects every Individual in America,
you may not use coaL but you use
gas, or wood or electricity and as
fuel all these are Interlocked. Fuel
Is a matter close to the life of
women, and yet, as I said, not one
woman attended the coal hearing.
"The cause of the miners and the
mine ownera Is as Important to
women as a welfare bill, aird women
should Interest themselves and
study the coal situation as atten
tively as they do matters of espe
cial interest to women. And that is
true of other problems."
Thinking Like Man's.
Miss Robertson, woman, though
she Is, thinks like a man. Long
since she passed girlhood and mid
dle life; her hair is white and
streamers of It flow from under her
hat. Her mouth is broad and her
smile is all-embracing, but her eyes
are compelling. Those eyes of hers
stare unblinklngly, and are wells
of intelligence. She speaks slowly
and with deliberation. . She ap
proaches a subject In a round-about
way until before one had become
accustomed to her style the thought
coimes that she is off her subject,
but ahe lis not never for a mo
ment. "You have very pure water In
Portland, exceptionally pure," she
Degan, wnen askea regarding her
opinion of congress. It sounded as
though she was dodging. She was
not. "Water sq pure means that it
comes from a pure source, in the
mountains. A representative in con
gress reflects the character of his
constituents. A community of pure
homes and wholesome surroundings
elects a representative of that sort.
The more pure homes and whole
some 4 communities, there are in
