.A. H. Rawl, of-Agricultural De

Advancement of the Human
" Race; Valley Impresses Him
f That the movement to' the cities from
. the farm Is not one to deprecate. Tut
n condition that epeaks well for tho
Advancement of th.e human race, was the
statement of A. H. Rawl, i chief oik the
dairy dlvjsion of the department of agri
Culture, who was the guest' of r honor
at a dinner given him last night by
the Commercial club. .
; "This complaint of people leaving the
farm is all poppycock," said he. The
' country goes, to the city because of
-better surroundings. -' The only way to
keep people on the , farms Is to give
country life surroundings that Snake it
, equal to that of the city in point of
; i "It takes dollars to do this, and we
roust have some system that will make
dollars for the farmer' before you will
accomplish mutih in keeping the people
on the farm, ' for .they will, be drawn
to the city by the more attractive sur
. . ' , Tallty Boa Slch. - ' ' "
"Now dairying is not the whole thing
, In agriculture.--1 would have sheep and
orchards and all the Other things in the
Willamette valley; and" I would have
more dairy cattle and better ones. The
valley U one of the best dairy districts
, ; On. earth. , 11 needs more drainage more
eows and more dairy, farmers, but you
have got many good ones now. The soil
Of this valley will last forever by a well
balanced system of agriculture, f . :
"Dairy ing means a great deal here for
-j It gives quick cash returns, provided you
put the proper Investment into it. , There
are 22,000,000 dairy cattle in the TJuited
States and they are producing about half
what .could be produced by. the use of
Ordinary business methods. Yon need
not think Oregon stands-all alone be
cause you have some poor cows here.
They have the dame conditions else
where. The best 'way to Improve con
ditions Is to give the farmer examples
and object lessons of proper, methods
and betterments will soon be under way.
Would lake 150,000.'
"Our bureau is a small one, always
lacking- funds; but .1 , wish we might
have $50,000 to spend on this coast in
dairy work. Aye haven't got it, but we
hope to have it within the next two
years. -If we can come here and Join
with your local institutions in improv
ing dairy conditions and helping your
farmers, I for one will be very well
satisfied." ' . ,
. , Dr. J.. K-VWetherbee of the Commercial
club presided at last night's dinner, and
in introducing the speaker told of the
growth of. Oregon's dairy Industry in
five years from $5,000,000 to ,$17,000,
000, saying Oregon, and particularly
western; Oregon, is cow heaven, as well
as the promised land for the diversified
farmer. ' : ' L ' - ' " "

practical dairyman, having, a. if model
dairy hear the city, said the -need was
for more modern, up to date farmers
who would embrace modern methods.
Me said the recent immigration from
the east is proving more ready to take
up the improved dairy methods than the
old farmers of this state. He also "urged
government cooperation in the work,
i R. L. Sabiij told of . the work being
done in the. middle west by suclj dairy
experts as Hoard, Babcock and King.

Yesterday i Mr, Rawl haw sections Of
the Willamette valley and he was Im
mensely pleased with 'its possibilities.
"The Willamette valley is a wonder
ful country," said" he, "and opens op
portunities for thousands of people;,; Its
soil and climate are such that rapid
development is bound to come., I think
It, Is the. greatest valley 'In 'the world.
Education among the fanners to pro
duce the best there is in all lines, is
one of your greatest needs; the best

best grades of apples." , - . .. ,
iiBIDIIIT OPPOSED : -
BY BOND PURCHASERS
Portland, Dec. 19.To the Editor of
The Journal The wording of the tax
amendment published in The Journal
of this evening oil page 6 top of third
column, is incorrect The amendment
passed by the people is to be found on
page 72. or the state pamphlet. , The
one you, publish as having passed is
found on page 34, and was defeated.
The correction should be made, as the
two amendments are -quite different
The one passed was 326 on the ballot,
while the one published by you as hav
ing passed was ;No 818. ' k - s'-' .

paign Despair of Raising
Fund of $10,000. .
(Mr. Crldge isx correct. The amend
ment adopted by the people and ob
jected to by the Chicago bond buyers
is as follows: r . s ; . .
. "No poll qr bead tax' shall be levied
or collected in Oregon; no bill regulat
ing taxation or exemption throughout
the state shall become a law until ap
proved by the people of the state at a
regular general '-' election; none - of
the restrictions K of the constltu
tlon . shall apply to .. measures ap
proved fc by the people declaring
what shall be subject to taxation or
exemption and how It shall be taxed o
exempted whether proposed by the leg
islative" assembly or by- initiative peti
tion;', but the ' people ; of the several
counties- are hereby empowered and
authorized, to regulate taxation and ex
emptions within their several counties,
subject to any general law which may
be hereafter enacted."). : .
According to the present outlook, the
Visiting , Nurse s association, together
with the women, who are - engaged in
aiding the Portland campaign for, the
salo of Red Cross seals, will not . suc
ceed either in selling 1,000,000 seals or
In raising the $10,000 which It is de
clared will be necessary in carrying on
the work Of the assoelatlon during the
coming year. This situation, it is said.
is not due to lack of .enterprise or or
ganization on the part of the campaign
ers but rather to ,a failure on the part
of Portland people to ' cooperate and
aid. ' As the money which la raised Is
spent principally in Portland for the
benefit of consumptives who have no
money, with which to obtain treatment
this lack of cooperation is deplored by
the workers. U.;'.; "-V'; i--'v''-..'
A donation was received yesterday of
$50 from Mrs, F. Opit. which consti
tuted a material encouragement to the
campaigners. , The help of Miss Alice
Lloyd, the English comedienne, is also
much appreciated. Misa Lloyd win sell
