If the Legislature is disposed to do anything towards
' providing more room or a better arrangement for the state
industrial school for boys, it should appropriate money for
; the construction of a cottage, or for two cottages;
Somewhere on the present farm for that institution
And the law passed at the session of two years ago mak
ing a large appropriation for 17 or .more new buildings ought
to be repealed. i
' The construction of one new cottage should accoirimodate
40 to 50 of the smaller boy3. Two new cottages would ac
; commodate! 80 to 100 of the boys, leaving the larger, boys in
. the present main building.
r i Provision for one new cottage would make a very fair
beginning towards the. "cottage system," about which a
great deal ha been said. Provision for two new cottages
t would carry this idea into as complete execution as economi
, cal business judgment would dictate for: the present
For there are only some 150 boys in all' at the institu
tion, and it .will be some, time, perhaps, before there ars a
? great many more, i ; (
There has been a great deal of gush dispensed to the
i "J unknowing in regard to the segregation of the "bad boys
from the "good" boys at this institution; sob stuff; tearful
'propaganda. :f-y r.'-l i. -
The average person, his or her feelings worked upon
with this sob stuff, gets the idea that the boys at the state
, industrial school are allowed to run at will over the 400 acre
1 farm; the "bad", boys allowed to contaminate the "good
' boys at will, id genus omme. There s nothing to this. The
f- boys are kept in "families;" always have been. That is, the
large boys are kept together; the intermediate boys kept to
gether, and the smaller boys kept together and all of them
at all times under the watchful eyes of faithful officers, day
and night and Sundays and holidays. M . f
If there is contamination now, it is on account of un
; faithful officers and there is little or no such- unfaithful-
ness. L :. "i.""-'" 1 ' ' J
i The "cottage system," however, is the ideal system for
such an institution; arid it should have been betted provided
. .-for from the beginning, with separate buildings; "cottages.
Tod much money was put into the main buildings ; en
. . ough for that institution 50 or 100 years from now with
say 500 to 1000 boys. But the buildings are of stone and
I concrete and brick, and they will last for 1000 years and
. many more 1 and the only loss is to the taxpayers of the
. nineties for they were paid for then. (That was before
Oregon had issued any bonds.) . b
state industrial school makes up a good average
of the land is of the "red hills" type; volcanic ash; like that
of the Liberty and Rosedale fruit districts. Such land is
fine for both tree and bush fruits and strawoerries. u is
good grain land; good garden land. Any reader of these
lines can have a healthy scrap oft his hands by saying in the
presence of any one of the thousands of prosperous fruit
growers south of Salem that his land i3 poor and worthless.
The industrial school land will produce a great many
more tons annually of loganberries than the boys of the in
stitution can pick; more strawberries; more gooseberries;
more prunes and pears and apples and evergreen blackber
ries; and more poultry and pigs and calves and cows than
they can raise and attend and milk.
Besides, this is an "industrial" school, and these boys
olght to be learning trades. They should be learning to be
tailors, shoemakers, printers, carpenters, and what not. And
they might be taught to make rugs and toweling and other
things from flax twine spun! at the penitentiary f;
And be made helpful in self support of 4he institution,
and self support and independence in after life.
Another thing: When 3qme sob sister (male or female)
tells you that the industrial school ought to1 be some where
else, because the boys can look down on the penitentiary
(six miles away), or because they are near the tuberculosis
institution or the cottage farm of the asylum for the insane,
give him or her the horse laugh. There is nothing in it. Not
a living thing. There is no more contamination than there
would be with an Eastern Oregon penitentiary; or than there
is now with the Eastern Oregon insane asylum at Pendleton.

than may be expected from . the

not be called back. The "good old

forever. , i
Looks like there can never be
a reform of the abuses of the' leg
islature In employing more oftl
cers and clerks than are needed;
but only a lot of talk about It, re
peated session after session. :
If the representatives of the
people in the legislature will not
give Governor Pierce the tools he
needs to work with, they cannot
reasonably blame him for scant
performance of his campaign
pledges. He must act within his
limitations. If a vote of the peo
ple of Oregon could be had in
this matter, it would be over
whelmingly in favor of giving
Governor Pierce all he asks for,
and, then holding him responsible
for results.
The Nebraska legislature Is
considering a bill which forbids
the use of any motor car that has
a capacity1 for running faster than
30 miles an hour. Even the
Fords would have to be cut down
to fit the Nebraska specif ication.
There is to be no hurrying in Ne
braska. Possibly that is why
Bryan left the state. Maybe he
can run faster in Florida.
A Salem friend says he agrees
with the writer in The Statesman
of yesterday morning who assert
ed that "Oregon never had a more
able or a more earnest body of
men (and women) in her legisla
ture than she has in the present
session, taken as a whole."- But
this friend declares that this may
be a fault;, that better results
might be accomplished If there
were a greater proportion of fol
lowers and not i so many leaders.

No. 10. : Tricks of , the Game
(This is the tenth of twelve lea.
rons in basketball by William C.
Grave of the University of Penn
sylvania, intercollegiate high
scorer for 1821. Mr. Grave was
captain of his team in 1921, and
was named as all-Collegiate cen
ter in 1919, 1920, and 1921. fie
holds the' record! of having played
9 0 . basketball games and losing
only five.) . i J -
" , Trick i No. U If you have ad
vanced the ball until you are
within 20 feet of the basket and
find an opponent between you
and the goal, make a ielnt as
though to shoot, i The opponent
will rush In to prevent the shot
and you can: then dribble around
him. as shown in the illustration,
tor a shot from; under the bas
ket..:' y : : . r-'-
Trick No. II: It you arte tired
and find yon cannot keep up with
your man, stand just the other
side of center toward your goal
and wait for him.; Then when he
tries to cut by you, step in his
way and make him, bump Into
you.. It ; will prevent him ffom
cutting, and he will be forced to
go back to try again. After do
ing this three or four times' syon
will hate rested and will be able
to run with him. ,
Trick No. in: It you are Jump-J
lng against a man much taller
than you , and you wish ; to r pre
vent, him from tapping the ball,
jump slightly against him so that
you interfere with his Jumping.
.Don't crash into him,' or. the ref
eree will call a foul. If you find
this does not work. Jump with
him, but' instead of trying to tap
the ball hit his arm;
Trick No. IV: Suppose you have
made an nnsuccesswul cu for the
basket and are on your way back
to try again. You see before yon
a teammate guarded by an op
ponent who Is standing between
him and; the goal. Signal your
fellow player, and as he cuts for
the basket you step in the way of
his opponent, thereby preventing
him from; following your team
mate, who reaches the goal alone.
Trick No. V: "Picking off
can be used as an Out-of-bounds
play from-, under , y6ur. , basket.
Place a forward to one side of
the court. .His man will go and
rtand beside him so that he can
watch both his man and the ball.
Then have a guard . run np and
yell for the ball. As he yells he
steps in f the path of the man
guarding the forward and the
forward cuts around for the ba;
ket with no one to guard him.
The forward should never cut un
til the guard has started the play.
Practice this a few times and 7orx
will find it will score many
points. Some referees know this
play and .may call a foul. -.If they
do, stop ! working it.

When Georgle.
- came- out,!
the groundhogt
"The .seconds gjof February '
sighed . Georgle ' Groundhog, his
eyes and mouth both popping wide
open in a big yawn. "Groundhog
Day! Hip, Hip. Hurray! At last
I can get up." v
.Georgle crawled out of his hole
and strutted down the street. He
was j very careful to look only
straight ahead of him, .for he did
not want to see his shadow,.
Georgle knew well, as all ground
hogs do, that If he saw bis shad4
cv on. Groundhog Day he would
have to go back to bed tor six
more long weeks. - "I wonder who
made up that silly rule, anyway.'l
thought Georgle as he stalked
along. "I don't like it."
Heyf Georgle!"-' teome ; one
called. It was little Herbert
Groundhog, Georgie's ' cousin.
"Better come on back to bed. See
your shadow-. There'll be six
more weeks of winter."
Georgia never once looked back
to see his cousin. If he had, he
might have seen his shadow, too.
"No, I won't," he fhouted. "I
haven't seen my 'shadow yet." j
Mybut it was a nice day! So
bright and shining! To go back
in his stuffy hole on such a day
as this, he guessed not! He kept
his eyes rigidly fixed, looking
straight ahead.; He had walked
miles before it dawned on ' him
that he was getting very far away
from home. But' what could he
do? He couldn't tutn around and
go back without seeing his sbafi-i
ow, and he ! couldn't stand ull
without getting, too cold,' He sat
down to think for Just a minute.
Now Georgle was a yery smart
little groundhog, and all of a sud
den he had the most wonderful
Idea. He had l learned at, school
that the world was round. in
stead of flat. He decided that he
would walk clear around it and
get home that way, but he would
have to hurry to get around be
fore dark. He started out at a
brisk run to make up for the time
he had wasted. He was running
alone Just as fast as he could.
when suddenly he caught sight" of
something dark on the ground in
front of him. It was his shadow!
But how did it ever get there?
Sad to say, Georgle had missed
school the day they had studied
about the sun and how it travels
across the sky. " "
He nearly cried with disap
pointment, but there : wasn't any
thing for him to do now but to
gp back to bed for six weeks. He
turned his back on his shadow
.and, started home. It was a long,
long . way, and he was very tired
and cold and hungry. Little flur
ries of snow blinded him. The
world became darker and darkeri
Georgle was never so glad In his
life as he was when he finally
found his little hole and crawled
into it for six weeks more of
sleep. ' .'.- '.'' L ,
(Under the. above heading. In
the World'h Work for February,
Dr. Charles W. Eliot, president
emeritus of Harvard university,
writes as follows: )
It has become obvious within
the last three montns tnat me
thinking part of the American
people, Republicans or Democrats,
professional men or business men.
reiigious people or the unchurch
ed, are inclined to abandon the
attitude of isolation and with
drawnness which they assumed in
1919j and to resume effective ac
tion in restoring Europe and the
Near East, and in building up an
International community capable
of preventing International war
and of promoting cooperative ac
tion in favor of free institutions.
mutually advantageous ' trade,
and staunch friendliness.
It is also obvious that the Am
erican government has .recently
been looking for good means or
opportunities to modify! its policy
of declining to assume obligations
or responsibilities concerning Eu
ropean or Asiatic quarrels and
strifes. The government seems to
be wishing for a good chance to
abandon Its policy of non-inter-
vention and to give the American
people' Its legitimate Influence in
making the earth A better place
for mankind to live on. ' ;
The re-admission of the Turk
to Europe In consequence of di
vided interest and action" by Great
Britain and France suggests
strongly that the opportunity
which the American people and
the American government have
been looking for has arrived, i
The coming back of the Turk
into Constantinople, the Dardan
elles, and Thrace Is the . greatest
calamity which has befallen civil
ization since the armistice. It
means the cancellation of a large
part of the good done by the vic
tory of the allies over Germany.
It means the revival of the , centuries-old
purpose of the Turk to
rule in eastern Europe., It means
the loss of ground won by the
Balkan states against the Turks
in a long series of- sanguinary
wars.' It opens a long vista of
future struggles between the bar--
barous and cruel Turks and the
Christian peoples In the Near East
which know by bitter experience
the effects of Turkish misgovern-
ment. It means the chronic ap
prehension, 30 sickening to the
democracies and constitutional
monarchies, that Germany, " Rus
sia and Turkey, feeling strong
again, will make a secret ar
rangement to settle old score; and
new ones with the allied and as
sociated powers at the first good
opportunity. Whence another
great war, even cruder and more
destructive than the last.
Into this tangle, so ull of dan-
ger and dread,, the American gov
ernment, administration and con
gresa together, can now step with
immediate effectiveness, and with
considerable sums of rjoaey, but
nothing like what; postponement
of the pacification and fctabiliza
tion pf Europe and the Near East
will cost it from year to year,
and nothing, like what another
war, either in Europe or in the
Near Eatt, will cost the United
States. The American navy is
going to be maintained in a high
state of efficiency anyway; and
it would be unnecessary to send
from America any military land
force, because the nearby nations
which are eager to keep the Turks
out of Europe would be glad, to
supply all the. garrisons, patrols.
and police' needed In disturbed
areas. :-
Abstentatlon from going to the
help of Europe during the past
four years has cost the United
States something much more prec
ious than money or goods, namely.
a serious i impairment of self-respect,
a relapse into selfishness
after a glowing outburst of un
selfishness, and of real for liberty
and Justice among men. and a
miserable J period of discontent
with itself, mankind, and the
world. . To recover Its natural dis
position to take risks, make sacri
fices, and buffer hardships in- the
cause of political, Industrial and
social. liberty for mankind, would
be worth .to the American people
many fold jthe cost, both material
and spiritiial,. of the acceptance of
this mandate.

Referring to H. T. Bruce, 'door

1921, Staples said that Bruce Uas
surprised,' at the conclusion of last

some of them won't come back.
We hear of whisky being passed
about and of one senator treating
others. . We are here to make laws

Moser seemed to take this as a
personal fling at himself, and de
clared h&'hadri't seen a drink of
whisky since the session opened.

Upton Gives Version
When the two senators - had

his version of the affair involving
Doorkeeper Bruce. , '
" "There was complaint against
Bruce last, session he said, be

His assistant had to do it. I voted
against Bruce this session f or that
reason and it was because of hi?

Upton scored Staples for hav

yesterday moved that the prayers
be dispensed with , during;' the
coming week. The Senator said
he believed this would bring the
senators to a realization that the
not appreciated and its meaning
not understood.
Newspapers Accnsed
Ellis accused the Capitol Jour

Senator La Follelt wanted to

"If he is," said La Follett, "I

The motion died for want of t

Ellis said he did not expect the
motion to carry but made it as a
protest against a condition thar
has arisen.
