NOT QUITE SO BAD IN OREGON
One of the agents of the State Board of Control who goes
around checking up things for the administration has a spe
cially built six-cylinder car with electrical equipment. It has
an electric cigar-lighter, curling irons and chafing dish. There
is also a fancy clock and a silver bouquet-noiaer. Now all
the state employees want cars of this caliber. The pay-roll
patriots chafe for autos equipped with chafing dishes. The
state is paying for the upkeep of some 800 cars now on be
half .of the administration and if they must all be equipped
with electric toasters and .curling irons it will take something
more than that S93,000,000 to run the machine. Presently
we will have a demand for a manicure girl with every car.

It is not quite so bad up here in Oregon; California is
larger, and the piling up of commissions has been going on
longer down there v
And we had a killing of commissions some years ago up
We have altogether too many, however, and there must
be' another killing, and it must be more complete
The commission abuse must be dug up by the roots.
There is only one way to make it complete, and that is
with a cabinet form of government, the head of each depart
ment being responsible to the Governor, and the Governor
being responsible to the people
Like the Illinois form; like the Washington form, under
which there has been effected a reduction of 50 per cent of
the general fund state tax levy.
Promises will not do it.
There must be a program, and there must be perform
A great deal of state money is being wasted, in Oregon,
and there is no way to stop a large part of the waste, under
commissions that, have no adequate check or control under
tne present system , v ...... . ;.
The only way is to get the control : to centralize it
This will give an economical and business conduct of the
state's affairs. It is to be presupposed that the of f ice of
Governor must.be in strong, new, clean hands,-directed by a
clear head. The friends of George A. White think thev have
picked the man for the job and he stands flatly for the
proposed new deal; the proposed cabinet system. Already

THE DDIE NOVEL
The creator of Nick Carter Is
dead by his own hand. He had
led a feverish and adventuresome
life and much of the lurid fiction
of his stories was reflected from
his own career. In his later days
he tried hard to get away from
Nick Carter, but neither his pub
lishers nor his readers would per
mit It. They wanted Nick Carter
and he kept Nick Carterlng until
ht could stand it no longer. He
had made and spent a fortune in
developing the character of his
rugged hero and was aweary ot
his work. It wasn't literature
and yet it had Its place and a
sustained demand. After all,
Nick Carter had a lot of friends
who never heard of Carlyle.
OWNING THE LAND
The soviet government con
tinues to deny the right of pri
vate ownership of land in Russia.
We should worry. Who wants
to own any land in Russia? No
man clothed in his right mind
would trade a lot in West Salem
or Sublimity for the whole Nevsky
Prospekt or whatever they call
It. There will never be any real
estate boom In Moscow while Le
nin and Trottky are still clutter
ing up the place.
THE DEAD ONES
The most retentive memory in
America is said .to belong to a
native Indian of the Yakima tribe.
His braia xjells register every
thing he sees or tears. During
the war he served with the army
In France and was of much value

serving positions or checking sup
plies. When he was in camp he

' Peggy explained. . We wanted to
have a . hike, but we wanted it to
' be! different from Just in'brdinary
: hue, ao we wprked up the pow
wow idea. Most of the girls be-
long te the Campflre and had In
dlan costumes, and those that did
v not! borrowed some. We started
.. from Retina's house, which is
'. right on the edge of town, you
know, and hiked out the Hlggins
Road, which isn't very much trav
elled. We aU had packs ot blan-
' kets and things to eat.'
'How many girls were there?
' Twelve of us. But I was go
ing to tell yon. how we happened
to have the powwow. ..Miss Ryer-
' son, who hss always been so dandy
to ua, happened to be telling how
she was-out-in Glacier Park last
summer; and some other placss in
western Canada and United States
and has studied particularly In
dlan music and dances. - She'd
promised to teach ns some of tho
dances she worked out, and we
thought this bike would be a good
So she went along with us. It
was. fun hiking. We Just kept; a
good, .steady , walk, and we sang
some as we went along. We stop
ped every once In a while to look
at flowers, but we didn't gather
any, on account of having' no
place to put them before they'd

different birds we saw,' too. j
We kept - on ' walking nntn
lata afternoon, and then we found
a nice place to camp on the edge
of a woods. There w as an open
space there where we could have
our. powwow, too. We stacked up
our packs, because it wasn't time
to eat yet. rf 'a
"Then Miss Ryerson got us all
in a circle and showed us how to
do a ceremonial dance, and a war
dance, ; and some kind ot a sun
dance. They were very queer
dances, but fun to do. And beinr
out there in the. country wc
could yell all we wanted to whet
we were doing war dances. ;
"After that we scattered and
gathered wood and made a fire

supper... We hadnt brought alone

that sort of stuff. We had bacon

too. And we tried eggs In with

olives.!,. '' .' '; "' " -"Of
course . we ended up b?

wieners, and these we used for the
marshmallows. . w i

ONE REEL YARNS I
A DUMB TRICK
Erwin and ' Tred were going
home on the street car together.
Not that this was unusual. They
went everywhere together. You
hardly ever saw one without the.
other. What .Erwin couldn't
think of doing, Fred could, and
the other way -around.
The street car was crowded.
They were too jlate to get a seat,
ma naa to nang to tne same
rtrap. Suddenly with his . free
iand Erwin began to make funny
motions. He twisted his fingers
about quickly In the queerest way.
Then Fred caught on. He began
to make the same sort of ges
tures, his face very sober..
People about them began to
"There's a couple of boys from
the deat and dumb school," Fred
heard one lady . say. "Isn't It a
.heme? Such; fine, bright boyi
too. Erwin and Fred continued
their supposed conversation witfc
thetr fingers as though unaware
of any one else.
Even the conductor was inter
ested. "Yeh." he said to a man
near him, "it's ' surprising how
those kids get around. Saturday
afternoons like this they let them
go down to the mesuems by them
selves. Just, this afternoon there
were three "other boys on this
car. ' - - '
Ttj two'toj-s were tavlu trou-
Dit Keeping irom laugnmg . as
they listened to the comments on
their appearance. Then 'some one
touched them on the shoulder.' It
was the conductor, and they real
Ized that the car had stopped.
"Here's where these kids get oft
for the school," he was saying
"but they don't seem, to know it."
He made signs to the two boys;
but they looked at him blankly.
"They're green ones,", be said.
"but I. can't carry them' past." He
took', a firm hold on their elbows
and marched them out of the car.
There was nothing to do but. go.
And so Erwin and Fred alighted
'.n front of the deaf and . dumb
jchool. , .
.. Away went the car, and Erwin
ind Fred looked after . It, They
were only half way home. Their
pockets were empty. So they put
their hands In them and started
gloomily down the street.
