it will be maintained entirely by the
state. The county will not have to

Taxpayers should pay particular

ICdltor of The Cluoiiicle;
I once more wish to ask for soma

benefits that Wasco County will en
Joy through the constitution of the
The Dalies California highway. The
things that I nm about to mention
do not constitute an exhaustive com
pilation ol these bcnellls they are
only a beginning -but tliey wjll
serve, I hope, to help emphasize to
the voteis of Wasco County the in
estimable value to them of Hie pro

There are many morn good things
Hint can be truthfully said of this
pioposed highway, but I lecognlzo
the fact that your space allotmt nts
for letters of this kind cannot be
limitless. So 1 will hope that what
you hnvo permitted mo lo write lor
your columns will he sufllcivnt to
make plain the fact that we must
have this highway thai we must

Here is Governor Olcott's message to the peo
ple in regard to this issue: x
"Next Tuesday Oregon will be called .upon to
show some degree of the appreciation she'owe.1
the soldiers of the World war who upheld and
maintained the traditions and ideals' of the state,'
"It is inconceivable that the measure for so!-'
diers' aid should fail. While it is true, passage
of the act possibly may entail a little sacrifice
such sacrifice will be nothing as weighed against
those sacrifices made by the thousands of our
young men who unhesitatingly responded to the
en to arms. '
'Throughout the state members of legioi
posts are voting to a man to accept the loan fea
ture of the proposed act. This indicates thatour
soldiers as private citizens wteh to build fpr -themselves
and in so doing build for the state and
theiv and oui nosterity. ,
"No possible investment could be found so
sound as the investment the state will .make irt
its ex-service jnen next; Tuesday. Let's make the
majority for the measure overwhelming. Oregon
iiHst not be lagard in this duty."
World War Veterans' Bonus and Loan
"This measure was drafted and put forward
bv the .American Legion, a thoroughly respon

might not have been called upon, but Congress
has failed to make good. Meanwhile twenty or
more states have enacted legislation of substan
tially the same kind. It is inconceivable that Ore
gon would deny to her sons the same recognition
that has been ac'corded by other states.
"Those .of us who remained at 'home .during

On their .occupations, positions and .professions to
fight fpr everything that American's hold dear.
Wage-earners who Remained at home' including
thousands who obtained exemptions through their
success in becoming attached to war industries,
received huge wages, many of them -far beyond
their deserts, while the bravest and most patriot
ic of dUr sons were in training or on the fighting
line, many paying the supreme sacrifice and were
being paid only a trifle in comparison with wages
paid to those who. escaped seryica. Simpie justice
woUld appear to gUctate that Oregon' extend the

The men who evaded service ano!. stayed at
home made big money. They do not profit by

Remember that practically every ex-service
man .has voted ,to accept the loan feature. This
means the money will be paid back to the state.
The money must be spenjt in Oregon, fpr Or$-

homes, new businesses', and new citizens.
