State Will Produce This Year
900 Acres of Flax, Mostly
Under State Rule.
Oregon's progress in the culture of
flax Is described in a bulletin published
In a late number of the daily Commerce
Reports, issued for the benefit of deal
ers the world over by the federal De
partment of Commerce. The material
was prepared by Ansel R. Clark, local
representative of the department.
The report ahowa that Oregon will '
produce this year about 900 acres of :
flax, of which COO is to be grown under
direct supervision of the state on lands
near Salem. The state supplies the
seed and supervlaion, the farmers sell
ing the orop to the state. Convicts
will harvest the flax and It will be
treated at the prison flax plant.
Near Eugene more than 200 acres is
to be grown, the people of Lane county
being enthusiastic over the prospects.
About 100 acres Is to be planted in
Washington county near Gaston, the
farmers there having purchased their
seed from the state. Near Roseburg a
few acers will be grown to discover if
the soil and climate are suitable for
best flax and. If so, a large acreage
will be put in next season.
Altogether, the report shows, Ore
gon Is building well in its effort to
create a new Industry.
Mr. Clark is preparing other bulle-
rest. What affects mankind Is inevlt
ably our affair as well as the affair
of the nations of Europe and of Asia.
"One observation of the causes of
the present war we are at liberty to
make and to make It may throw some
light forward upon the future as well
as backward upon the past. It is plain
that this War could have come only as
it did, suddenly and out of secret
counsels, without warning to the
world without discussion, without
any of the deliberate movements or
counsel with which it would seem
natural to approach so stupendous a
Could Have Averted War.
"It is probable that If it had been
foreseen Just what would happen, just
what alliances would be formed. Just
what forces would be arrayed against'
one another, those who " brought the
great contest on would have been glad
to substitute conference-for force. If
we ourselves should be afforded soma
opportunity to apprise the belligerents
of the position which it would be our
duty to take on the policies and. prac
tices against which we would feel
bound to use all our moral and eco
nomic strength, and in certain circum
stances even, our physical strength
also, our owp contribution to the
counsel which might have averted the
struggle would have been considered
worth weighing and regarding.
Most Have Been Diplomacy.
"And the lesson which the shock of
being taken by surprise In a raaner so
deeply vital to all the nations of the
world has made poignantly clear is:
That the peace of the world must
henceforth depend on a new anl more
wholesome diplomacy. Only when the
gTeat nations of the world have
reached some sort of agreement ax to
what they hold to be fundamertal to
their common interest and aa to some
feasible method of acting in concert
whea any nation or group of nations
seeks to dlrturb those fundamental
things, can we feel that civilisation
is at least in a way of justifying its
existence and claiming to be finally es
tablished. It ia clear that nations
must in the future be governed by the
same high code of honor that we de
mand of Individuals.
War Has Advanced Thinking.
"We, indeed, in the very .same
breath with which we avow this con
viction, we admit that we have our
selves upon occasion in the past, been
offenders against the law of diplo
macy which we thus forecast; but our
conviction lg not the less clear, but
If this war has accomplished nothing
else for the benefit of the world, it
has at least disclosed a great moral

What Are YOU Doing
to Get Ahead-'-to Own
a Home of Your Own?
It takes "decision" to win battles.
Procrastination never produced progress.
You know that you should own your own
home, but have you let little obstacles
stand in the way of your start?
It has been a general rule that the man
who continues to rent never does own a
home and usually at the end of a term
of years has less money than the man
who started in to buy his home.
The Ladd Thrift Plan
offers such an 'opportunity to Portland families
by allowing payments to be made like rent that a
man can no longer make excuses to his own con
science that he cannot afford to buy a home.
A home means much more than can be calculated
in dollars and cents. Read the biographies of suc
cessful men and you will find what a prominent
part the home has played in their lives.
The Ladd Thrift Plan is based on true thrifts-laying
aside systematically, getting ahead every month, every year.
