Commissioner From Oregon
Is Factor in Industry
WASHINGTON. Sept. (WASH
INGTON BUREAU OF THE
JOErRNAD-Clyi B.- Aitchison of
Oregon, member of the Interstate com
merce commission, is one of the lead
ing figures Ib the Industrial situation,
the mas to whom all complaints about
ears and Ucic of cars and car distribu
tion sooner or later come.
As a member of the president's com
mittee on fuel distribution he is asso
ciate with Secretary Hoover, Federal
Fuel Distributor Spencer and others
who by a voluntary organization have
sought to work out the necessary pri
oritiesfor coal with which to keep the
railroads and industries of the country
running. As commissioner In charge
ef the car service section of the inter-.
state commission, he has direct juris
diction over the application of the
. The commission has been granted
wide powers over car supply in cases
of emergency. To prevent chaos and
favoritism, and to promote the most
essential industries, the commission
stepped in some weeks ago and de
clared;, an emergency on certain east
ern lines to advance In particular, the
shipment ef coal, which ' was then
being . produced in a small section bf
non-union territory. The Great Lakes
region was an especial cause of anx
iety, as the bulk . of supply has to
reach Lake Erie before the naviga
tion season closes.
Later on the situation tightened in
the west, which led to the more recent
declaration of an emergency as to
lines west -of the Mississippi river.
Here the great seasonal pressure for
crop movement is beginning. Fruit
shippers from the Pacific coast have
been having difficulty securing re
frigerator cars, and the grain growers
of the hard wheat belt are apprehen
sive that they will not be able to se
cure cars for surplus that must be
moved if it is to be saved.
So the story goes from one day to
another. No sooner has one gap been
filled than a more alarming one ap
pears. Bituminous mines are running.
but railroad equipment is not in the
best of shape, and in many Instances
the "bottle-necks" leading from the:
mines are congested. The amount of
coal that can be shipped out measures
the relief that can be afforded, not
the quantity that is mined.
It Is with this continuous problem
that Commissioner Aitchison has to
wrestle from day to day, hearing coin-'
plaints, studying reports on conditions,
conferring with other officials as to the
moat effective mesaures, meeting
members of ocngreas who want in
formation! about this and that, particu
larly what answer to give inquiring
constituents about car prospects, con.
suiting railroad executives who come
to lay conditions before him and ex
plain their difficulties. So on, while
the day lasts.
Mr. Aitchison took hold of the car
service section when it was much less
important than . now. Congress began
to see the Importance of it and began
legislating, somewhat timidly, toward
authority in; the commission that would
enable a central government -authority
to-glve directions in the public interest.
"That is ' the central thought of pri
ority- the supply being short, the
neediest; shall be served first. So food
for man, food for stock, perishable
commodities, and fuel, take first rank.
Remove that, the outlook of the car
service section goes to the total avail
able supply, where its main constitu
ents lie. and . how to shuffle traffic
. around to release the greatest number
f ears at the places where they are
most .Beaded. It calls for an analytical
mind, one familiar with railroad prac
tice, and one who knows geography
and mere or less of the ways of na
ture Ship Subsidy
In General Practice
WASHINGTON. Sept. 9. (WASH
INGTON BUREAU OF THE
; JOURNAL) That this is a world of
subsidy for ships, with all the leading
maritime nations doing it, summar
c lies a statement of the Rational Mer-
chant Marine association, telling of
what other countries are doing.
The aid is extended in a variety of
ways, sea bounties, loans for ship
building, subventions for carrying
mails, and other devices. Thus, Italy
restricts immigration to Italian-flag'
vessels, subsidizes vessel owners, and
- has granted 65.000, 000 government aid
to builders for a four-year period, the
private owners obligating themselves
to furnish J100.000.000. She is "balanc-
lag her fleet."
France is , restoring sea bounties
aggregating $13,000,000 a year, after
selling her government-owned merchant
ships after the war for about $80 a
ton. Sfle is also to receive two large
-liners from Germany on reparations
' account, which will be operated to
- India and. China.
Japan made a loan of $125,000,000 for
V- Ship construction, saved from battle-
: ship costs by the four-power treaty.

Farm Bloc Splits on
WASHINGTON, Sept. I. (WASH
INGTON BUREAU OF THE
JOURNAL) The farm bloc in the
senate failed to put up a solid front
for the MeNary reclamation bill when
hat measure was brought to a test by
Senator McNary. In fact, the chair
man of the bloc, Seantor Capper ef
Kansas, while not voting, because ef
the absence of his "pair." lined up
against it, announcing that if per
mitted to vote he would vote "no."
Of course there was no obligation
on Mr. Capper to vote for it, as the
farm bloc declared no policy on it,
and he, as chairman, called no meeting
to consider taking any position. It is
not known that anyone even asked him
to do so. Senator McNary was satis
fied to let the bill stand or fall with
out seeking a farm bloc indorsement.
Nevertheless there has been some sur
prise that Senator Capper would go
against the bilL
Two reasons are assigned for his ac
tion. He is believed to be doubtful
as to any particular demand for it
among the former service men of Kan
sas, in which etate there is little pros
pect for any irrigation or drainage
district of consequence, leading to the
argument that legislation of this kind
is likely to decrease the population
and available labor of Kansas in favor
of other states. Another argument be
lieved to nave weight with aim was
pne persistently used by his colleague.
Senator Curtis, that the reclamation
amendment would enhance the danger
of a presidential veto of the bonus.
Other members of the farm bloc who
went against the reclamation measure
were Heilogg of Minnesota. Swanson
of Virginia, Townsend of Michigan and
Willis of Ohio, making a fair-sized
hole In its membership. As a matter
of fact, the bloc has not been very
active since Senator Kenyon retired
from its leadership and from the sen
ate, and Capper was made chairman.
Few meetings have been held, and no
particular program or concert of ac
tion has appeared.
This is explained away on the ground
that for the most of the time the tariff
bill has been before the senate, and
there has been no particular call for
activity. During the tariff fight the
field was occupied by the "farm tariff
bloc," which is quite a different af
fair, but functioned In the name of
the farmer. It was comnesed entirely
of Republican senators.' headed by
Gooding or Idaho. It asked for and
secured .the highest rates ever levied
as protection for the products of the
farm, failing only on hides and one or
two minor articles.
It Is understood that the farm bloc
will take a vacation when the ship
subsidy measure comes along, also, on
the ground that this is not an agricul
tural measure. It is evident that there
could be no unity of action among its
members, those residing in the coast
line states being1 generally for it, and
those further inland for the most part
But the bloc still exists, and Senator
Capper threatens to call it into action
when the favorable moment arrives.
This may be in support of his "truth-in-fabric"
bill, which has been dammed
up behind other measures, and cannot
hope for consideration before the regu

but I was anxious to get into business
for myself. When we entered the war
my opportunity came. I got the occa

One day I went Into a beauty shop

be 'a profitable business If business
principles were applied. Most beauty
shops are conducted by women, and
comparatively few women have busi

thing in the beauty shop business Is
the declaration of every woman who
comes in to have her hair dyed be
she 20 or 60 years old that her hair
turned gray when she was 16. Six

comment is often made that women
don't seem to be dyeing their hair as
much as they used to. But the truth
is they are dyeing it more than ever

three things, it will not have been In
vain. Would w but live our religion
and our patriotism we would be less

understood the real nature of educa
tion, we would pay more attention to
the child himself, we would seek the
counsel of genuine rovers ef children,
refusing to be buncoed by the harangue
ef the vote-getter. In my sjnion, the
enactment ef the proposed compulsory
school law would be retrogresslvie,
from an educational standpoints -The
public school is what it- is because it
has profited by. the experience -sf an
open field. Many valuable courses
have been available In private schools
before being adopted generally in the
public school. This is true especially
in industrial and commercial .lines. The
private school. . particularly the non
sectarian school, is dependent upon
public patronage ; it therefore seeks
innovations, and consequently is an
important experiment station ' in edu
cational methods. Frankly, I believe
that our children have too much
schooling, and too, little real educa
tion. We hear too much of "passing"
and "failing," not enough of the joy
of knowing and, doing. There is too
much pressure toward standardisation,
too little attention to individuality. In
a realm where freedom and liberalisa
tion are so much needed, why place
further restrictions? Moreover, free
dom of choice festers pride, buoyancy,
mental alertness ; compulsion engen
ders at best arrogance, in general,
compliance, submission, - glumness,
stolidity. We are all reasonably fa
miliar with the difference between the
two types of character, American and
Prussian. Do we wish to 'develop citi
zens of the latter type? I am sure
we do not, and I do not believe we
wish to enact a Jaw in Oregon' that
would have a subtle but none the less
positive tendency In that direction.
As to the patristic motive involved,
I cannot but feel that we are serving
our country best when we are striving
to promote essential democracy ; and
that 'implies unity, not uniformity. The
spirit of democracy impels the
seeking of fundamental likeness, not
emphasis of differences ; it inspires
persistent endeavor to cooperate, and
the exercise of faith in our fellowman.
Democracy is1 friendship enlarged.

Should we push them into the sea?
How can democracy be served by the
employment of undemocratic means?
Have we reached a place where we

WHY OPPOSE IT?
Portland. Sept. 7. To the Editor of
The Journal r The Oregonian has
broken its silence on the single tax, A
leading editorial on the question in -its
issue of August 29 is entitled "Impu
dent Propaganda." Instead of discuss
ing the question on its' merits it re
sorts to sarcasm and abuse. The Ore
gonian complains that having the sin
gle tax on tiie ballot at various elec
ios has cost the tax payers thousands
of dollars. Yes, but the deep seated
injustice that single taxers are try
ing to get the people to destroy Is cost
ing them not thousands, but millions
of dollars. If the single tax is wrong.
why does not the Orepronian show us
were it is wrong? Why does it not
point out the fallacy it says the single
tax is? It would be doing us a great
favor by setting us straight in the
matter. If it is Impractical why do
those who are reaping millions of
dollars of unearned wealth so bitter
ly oppose it? The appeal of Henry
George and his followers is to the
heart, reason and conscience of the
people. They propose an orderly and
lawful change., They believe the rights
ef property afe sacred and that they
should not be violated by taking the
things produced by labor for public
expenses. The values created by pop
ulation belong to tne people and should
be used for publlo expenses. Henry
George mastered his subject. His
books have been published in the lead
ing languages of the world, and large
numbers of eminent and honored peo
ple . have favored his proposition.

equally joined together from a material
as well as a spiritual sense? Is It not
possible that a pretty face and a shape

moment that otherwise would not be
considered? it seems idle for mere
man to offer admonition where the
word of God has been given to man
and woman that they should walk to
gether as a complement to each other !
to live a life of Joy, peace and happl-

marriages, as I know it is better to
trust in . the Lord than to put confi
dence In man. J. H. Upright.
