There is to be a meeiing of

industry at the Salem Commerciat
club rooms at 10 o'clock this

on the edge of big things in the

industry ought to be taken on,
too. Both industries provide all
the year around employment.

s "Drastic legislationto meet the housing condition in the
M United States is recommended in a statement by Senator
Kenyon of Iowa, a member Of the Senate committee which
investigated the housing problem throughout the country.
The Senator says the United States is 1,000,000 homes short
, today and that the problem is acute in every section of the
r. country. He would have government aid directly in solving
,the problem. Among other things Senator Kenyon recom
,raenda the establishment of a federal home loan1 bank, sim
j ilur in its operations to the federal farm loan bank, as a means
jiof enabling the American people to have roofs over their
: heads. He called attention to the fact that the states of New
- York and New Jersey have tackled the housing problem, that
v Great Britain and France are taking action, and he can see no
treason why the American government should not do the same

from Washington that the Hrilish
government has suddenly changed
it3 policy and has entered into a
trade agreement with Russia that
is tantamount to a recognition of
the de ficto soviet government.
This agreement was brought
forth ly lliifsia as soon as the
Wrangel forces in the Crimea
were beaten. Great Kritain was
asked to sign on a dotted line
and was coolly informed that a
itfuxal would be followed by so
viet attacks upon the ltritJsh por?
stssions in Asia. Apparently
without consulting any of her
late associates the Uritish gov
ernment signed this agreement.
It is a compromise with the So
viets that may bring temporary
repose to the Uritish dominions;
but it is a repose purchased at
a price that lew Independent gov
ernments would care to pay.
France has declined to follow
Britain's lead. -'ue will not have
any official rotations with Rus
sia until the crimes of the soviet.?
against humanity have been' expi
ated and until there is a renewed
pledge on the part of the Soviets
to repay the loan made by the
French people to the .former Rus
Intimation haa come from
Washington that this sudden
weakening on the part of the
British government will not cause
any change in the American pol
ity towards Russia. Italy may
follow the lead of Great Itritain,
but France and the United States
wyj stand nrm. Trade agree-
nients are desirable; but national
henor is of more worth to the
French and the American people
than international trade.

WANT AD. IN THE STATESMAN WILL BKLN'G RESULTS
Ever since the armistice was
signed the British government has
been running with a swaying and
jerking motion that gives an un
mistakable impression of insta
bility. Lloyd George and his min
isters seem to have acquired a
habit of giving ground when hard
pressed ' and their government
rests on a system of balances and
compromises. The Rock of Gib
raltar no longer symbolizes the
British parliament, which is now
weak where it once was strong
est. If Palmerston and Welling
ton were to return it would be
for them a sorry awakening.
, Viewing the record from a dis
tance it is not surprising that the
French fcre'gn office frequently
becomes disgusted wilh the for
eign policy of the Lloyd George
government. When the Poles were
apparently about to lose their
capital city Lloyd George said, in
the, course of an addiess to par
liament, that the Russian govern
ment was within Us rights in in
vading Polish' territory; that the
Poles had opened hostilities, and
must make peace the best they
could. A trade agreement with
the soviet government was pre
pared and ready for presentation
to parliament when the Poles
made their final stand, broke the
soviet front and cleared their ter
ritory of the Reds.
Several British ministers and
statesmen promptly., censured the
Russians, congratulated the Poles
and asserted that Great Britain
would never, never enter into any
economic or political agreements
with the soviet government of
Russia. : .France had taken thi3
attitude ever since the Soviets
signed a dishonorable peace with
Germany. Her opinion did not
vary, like a weather vane, with
the changing fortunes of the so
viet armies. When the Iiolshe
vikl were the strongest France
was the most uncompromising.
President Wilson . had assured
Great Britain. France and Italy
that this country would support
them by making no trade nor po
litical agreement with Russia. He
said that a resumption of diplo
matic relations was Impossible un

Herbert Hoover Is urging or
ganized labor to accept the Idea
or having two or three wage l-vels
in c?ch trade. This would enable
the skilled worker to be rewarded
above the deadly average. There
is no justice in requiring the em
ployer to pay top scale to bottom
workmen and the rule could not
long apply. Mr. Homer also
urges the larger use of the shop
committee In the adjustment of
local grievances. A shop com
mittee can understand condition
that are beyond the pale of a full-
, cized union. The shop commit-
tee can work as efficiently with
a union as without, although It
must be admitted that the Hoover
prescriptions are more In accord
with the American or open-shop
Idea. The laborer Is worthy of
his hire, but the union doesn't
recognize the fact in a practical
way: It penalizes the ' efficient
workman for the benefit of the
