KETCHAM 70B AMEKICAIfISM,
' John C. Ketcham of Michigan, national
lecturer for the grange, and master of
the Michigan state grange, was the
speaker at the forum hour Wednesday
morning, when he was heard by a
representative morning gathering, in
cluding many grange members. The
crowd was not as large as had been
V expected because farmers are busy in
their fields. With his subject as "The
Farmer and Reconstruction," Mr. Ketch
am told his hearers of the position the
farmer occupied today in comparison
with that of a half century ago. but
took him to task for not using business
methods in the conduct of his farm. He
deplored the diminishing fertility of the
soli, to which, he declared.' the farmer
must give more attention. and movement
of population from -.the country to the
cities. .' V. .
Mr. Ketcham emphasized the value of
business methods upon the farm, if the
farmer is to continue to receive a Just
return for his production. - He urged
that tne larmer siuay-tne cosi. 01 pro
duction and better marketing- arrange
- frients, which would i eliminate the ele
ment of gambling' in food products. He
said that, standing 'out' above all else,
was the need of 100 per cent red-blooded
Americanism among all the -people in
this day of so much doctrine against
Home ana cnurcn.
The speaker was- introduced by State
Master C E. Spence, who presided.
Following the auditorium meeting, an
appetising dinner was served tn the
grange headquarters on the .ground to
about 50 guests. '

LEAGUE WOULD NOT
(Contiimad From Pat One) .
thW nation, without the assent of con
gress. It is probable that the talk of the
league "sending American boys to police
Europe," and to "fight in every little
Balkan war" 1 will in time disappear.
These crude fables, have already .been
disowned by such critics as Root and
Lodge. Repeated by Borah, -Folndexter.
Reed and a few .others, and given wide
circulation. J they; are .typical of the
things Senator McCumber y ref ered to
when he stood - among tils Republican
colleagues altd told them of the "wil
ful misinterpretations .and gross misrep
resentations" which he had heard on the
floor of the senate. ; '-'
The president in his forthcoming trip
is expected to .- greatly assist in taking
to ' the people the spirit eJMbe treaty,
which is grounded-more In honor, discus
sion, arbitration, conciliation, publicity
of facts and delay of hostilities than it
is in displays of force.
There is provision for force, under
obligations of honor, in certain contin
gencies, but the great reliance is upon
the agencies of peaceful settlement al
ways ready and always speaking with
he concentrated voice of organised world
This is the message the president will
carry to the people. It will sound
strangely different from the bellicose
orations of Borah and Reed and John
son, who have discovered, each for him
self, a series of snares and scares in
the league. ( It "has been suggested that
anyone who- is in doubt about the facta
in the case will do well to read over the
covenant of the league' and that, part
of the federal constitution which deals
with the powers of congress.
Each of these instruments Is a docu
ment of reserved powers. Authority not
granted by the states to the United
States is reserved, to the states. Powers
not granted to the League of Nations
the nations themselves possess, and each
of them - possesses unimpaired its own
constitution and its own freedom of ac
tion, restricted only by its pledges under
the league to submit disputes with other
nations either to arbitration or to set-
lement by the league.
UITDERSTAKDIIfO GROWS ;
' Sentiment for the league appears ndw
to be growing. Its opponents havs-overreached
and are being found out. The
meaning .of. the treaty. Is becoming, bet
ter understood, and the world's need for
a league of peace to support the ver
dict at Versailles more thoroughly com
prehended. ; Senators who talked strong
ly of reservations are a little - less cer
tain as to what these rmrvktnn
should be, and are inclined to qualify
their original statements.
With the president making the Issue
plain to all men, and the wishes of the
people becoming clearer, the ratification
of the treaty over the screaming pro
tests of Borah and Reed etowi mnr
likely each day. .

Candidacy of Ex-Chancellor; for
Premier of Center Faction "
Is Hinted in Paper ;
London, July IT (L N. S.) A
hint that former Chancellor A. Bonar
Law may be put. forward as candi
date for premier by the new Center
party was contained in the political
comment of the Dally - .Mall . today.
Mir. Law. according to this newspa
per, ha not accepted an Invitation
to .the next dinner of the spongers of
the new party because Premier Lloyd
George had stated his willingness to
attend. - ' i , - ' '
Several fresh recruits have, come for
ward for the Center party, but on the
other band a reaction has set in among
the radical Unionists and Liberals. : -
LABOR OOTE&KHEHT FEARED ,
"If the premier has decided to throw
his lot in with the Center party yie ad
vent of a labor government is brought
distinctly nearer," said the Dally Mall.' -
"Is he In or-out? That is what the
public wants to know."
All of the parliamentary lobby corre
spondents dealt at length with the for
mation of the Center Party today, but
not all admitted that la was a new po
litical faction. Both the Daily Tele
graph and the Chronicle declared that
the party was formed some time ago.
Experienced parliamentarians attach
no special significance to the fact that
Colonel Winston S. Churchill, secretary
of state for war. was present at the
dinner on Tuesday night on the eve of
the announcement of the . formation of
the party, according to the Daily Telegraph,-
DIYER8B YIEWS HELD '
The Evening Star attacks the new
party, but the Standard hails it as a
party of the people.
The formation of the new party Is be
lieved to involve the overthrow of the
Tory element and may , result in the
recognition of the moderate laborites.
At the same time experienced politicians
declare that London wilt have to do
some guessing before it decides whether
the 'creation of the party has healed or
widened the breach between Lord North
cliffe and Premier Lord George. -

HIGHWAY DEVOTEE SUGGESTED"
Another possible appointee discussed is
James S. Stewart, - who r represented
Wheeler, Gilliam and Sherman counties
in the last legislature. -In the promotion
of highway development Mr. Stewart Is
quite prominent, having ; managed the
county bond campaigns in Sherman and
Marion counties. Recently Mr. Stewart
changed his residence from Fossil ' to
Corvallis for the purpose bf educating
his children. Whether this would render
him ineligible as a representative of the
second congressional district on the com
mission is a question to be determined.
In the event it should be decided that
he was not a resident of Eastern Oregon
but of Western Oregon, he would be eli
gible to succeed Commissioner Booth.
Among those suggested to succeed
Commissioner Thompson, Mr. Rice and
Mr. Maloney are the only ones classed
as Democrats in politics. In this con
nection it is pointed out that it was
the intention of the framers of the law
creating the state highway commission
that its non-partisan character' should
be reflected by the presence of one Dem
ocrat. The late Governor Withy corn be.
however, took another view and ap
pointed only Republicans.
