SOUND AND SENSIBLE ADVICE
Thomas B. McAdams, president of the American Bank
ers Association, gave out to the bankers of the country one
of the soundest and most hopeful pieces of advice a few days
ago that the American public has read in many years. It is
the advice which if followed will restore confidence to those
engaged in agricultural pursuits and will stimulate them to
the production that will mean prosperity not only to them
selves but to all the people. Mr. McAdams says to his fellow
"What is our first step? What is our most important
task at this hour? What needs our most careful yes, pray
erfulattention ? There is a real challenge in the answer
"The fundamental wealth of America is the productivity
of ' her ' soil. , Transportation- manufacturing jobbing

the farmer prospers all suffer when his purchasing power
is materially curtailed. God in his bounty has given us the
land and the water. We have the manpower wehave the
machinery we have the gold shall we put them all actively
to work that the world may be clothed and fed and America's
new era of prosperity built upon the firm foundation of new
i "What shall bankers do? Help the farmers of his neigh
borhood to approach this planting season with cheerfulness
and a rugged determination to succeed. Put new hope in
their hearts through continued sympathy and co-operation
assist them over the rough places. Many of them are dis
couraged and disconsolate as they review the losses of the
last two years. They must be stimulated to look forward not
backward and the banker must help bridge the gulf between
the disheartening past and the promising future."
jTben Mr. McAdams strikes another vital chord when he

financial America must provide the machinery for carrying

this there must be some economic regulation for two pur
poses the prevention of monopolistic speculation in the ne
cessities of life and the elimination of the waste (or excess
cost) between the producer and the distant consumer. The
producer is entitled to a better per centage of the retail price
paid by'the consumer than he now receives, and this can be
realized by a system of publicly directed distribution that
will cut out the heav toll of middle-men, or at least reduce
it to reasonable proportions.
Certainty of market with as light a sales expense as pos
sible is the great need of agriculture at present.
' Built before intelligent architectural thought was applied
toward providing proper methods of ventilation, the Oregon
Capitol office rooms are dangerous places for the health of
the employes. The only way of getting fresh air is by the
opening of windows and doors, the consequence being that

If you have been careful not to
make the roll too forceful, you
will land on top of your opponent.
But the great danger is that you
will roll so suddenly and be so
anxious . that you will get too
much force behind the movement
and, instead of landing on top
yourself you will continue to roll
and your opponent will land on
top of you. If any one ever tries a
roll with you, bear in mind that
you can avoid being the under
man by addiag momentum to the
roll so that you com out on top.

to force your opponent's head
down and up under him so that he
is forced to roll over. Slip your
right arm (supposing that you are
in the posltidn shown on the left
side of the 'picture) under the
right arm-pit of the boy. Then
place your right hand on the base
of his head as illustrated in the
right-hand sketch. Bear down on
hi.i head with your hand, and up
with your arm. The leverage thus
obtained is great, and unless your
opponent's neck is very strong, it
will be difficult for him to resist
the pressure. His head will go
down and he will roll over.
Hut If any one should try the
half nelson on you, remember that
you can berak away very easilv
by trying the sode roll I described
in the first part of this article.

about the "wrestler's bridge"

book on Bolsheviem for publica

States. He gave personal super
vision to the English translation
and, as he speaks the language
himself, there can be no excuse
that his thought was warped and
twisted in the transfer from Rus
sian to English. Here is one cf
the things that Trotzky himse'f
says about Bolshevism:
"It is necessary once for
all to make clear to ourselves
that the principle of com
pulsory labor service has just
as radically and permanent

Trotzky writes that "wage
slavery has besn forever abol

has been replaced by human slav

scripted for industrial service in
times of peace just as they are
conscripted for military service in
time of war. Xo man is a free

own definition', the re-establishment

Bolshevism is not democracy,

and it provides for the domina

"democracy'' permitted is that, ex
ercisad "in the name of the con
centrated power of the prole

der Bolshevism into two distinct
classes, beasts of burden and
beasts of prey. The miss'on of
the Bolshevist press, and no other
kind is permitted, is "to substi
tute the proletarian point of view
for the bourgeois." A free press
and free speech are dogmatically
suppressed. There can be no dis
cussion of the respective merits
of different systems except by
writers who espouse the prol?

whether its author, Trotsky, can

that such a creed will not find

on this latest and authoritat'.v

serves: "If this is a fair statement
of what Bolshevism means

his attempted justification of
murder and pillage in Russia is
not surprising. But it is a bit
mystifying to find such a defense

source when Lenin has been putt

IX THE NAME OF SPORT
A correspondent wants to
know what th league of Nat'ons
has thus far done toward the
abolishment of the cruel pastime
of bullfighting. He furnisher
statistics showing the killing of
four men. 2S.00O horses and 4 S00
bulls in th? name of sport. We
are not sure that the League has
thus far been able to accomplish
anything toward checking this di
version of the Spanish peoples.
We heard something to the ef
fect that the pro-German wing of
the League had passed resolutions
calling for the substitution of pi
nochle for btill fighting as a
pastime, but whether it went any
further we do not know. Am
bassador Harvey, who Was our
observer- at the meeting of the
League, did not make any report.
The correspondent intimates that
we may yet have to send our
armies into Spain and Mexico to
force a relinquishment of this in
human sport, but we hope not.
It might prompt reprisals in the
way of armed forces seeking to
repress our football demons.
