A HIGHWAY BLUNDER
'I'iiB Journal nas no "war to make
on tha state highway commission.
Members of the commission are be
set with arduous, onerous and often
thankless tasks. ' Nor ia there doubt
of the sincerity of, purpose and high
Intentions of those serving cm. that
ery important body.
Nor is t In criticism burin well
intended suyestidn that The Journal
repeats that the late sale of long
term bonds instead of short term
bonds was a mistake. It has been
publicly claimed by" the commission
that there is no provision for refund'
ins of bonds and that at the expire'
tion of short term obligations the
commission would be without 'power
That is not a sound reply. The
legislature would be only too glad
tb unanimously grant the commission
authority to refund when shown, as
it would be shown, that sale of short
term bonds had resulted in a saving
of thousands of dollars to the state.
It is also stated in behalf! of its
action that the commission - could
not know that interest rates '.would
be lower, and that if it did "have
such knowledge members of the body
could command high salaries on
Wall street. f

arduous. For the mother who can-!
not afford a maid, and to whom
paying , someone who comes in for
the few:: hours of her absence also
represents an expense to be avoided
if possible, the chance to turn .her
baby over to high school girls who,
perforce, musf use careful and sci
entific methods, is a godsend.
In Portland, it appears from a
statement by the superintendent of
pBChooIs, life-size': dolls represent the
extreme of progress in teaching the
care of children to girl students in
the Polytechnic high school. But in
the domestic science department of
Oregon Agricultural college the lab
oratory work of young" women in
homemaklng hap loner been governed
by realism. Eight senior students
are assigned to a model home for
six-week periods, and their duties
comprehend home management,
cooking, laundering, cleaning, wait
ing on table and -serving as nurse
maid, a - real baby is for one
week the exclusive care of each, and
during that week the young woman
learns lessons never 4o be forgotten,
More recently a nursery division has
been installed, which widens the
scope of practical study.
Much is said these days about
young women failing as homemak
ers. Does, not the plan at Chicago

falsifying by any other medium because
it may be a powerful public Institution?

Would it not be more Just and equit

and see rf they really desire to assume
this extra great burden, when the bur

average home owner gains it through
economy and sacrifice, yet the latter
