Kntered at the Poetoffice In Salem, Oregon, as second class matter
-The Statesman of yesterdayl in this column, called atten
lion to the fact that a high official of the United States
" Department of Agriculture visited Salem last week, and that
in casual conversation it was discovered that this official
.did not know that Oregon has
state grows flax .
And this in face of the
Oregon is the1 only section
line Tiber flax is produced-
In face of the fact that; 47 years ago, flax; grown in the
Salem district was entered against the wide world at the
Philadelphia Centennial, and
the nine ; points considered
not informed at the time of judging of the place of origin
of any sample in the competition 1
In face of the fact that the news had just been widely
published of the decision of the managers of the Oregon
state flax, industry to contract for double the acreage of
the present year; though the
' the tonnage ever before realized i
. In spite of the fact that a flax pulling machine had just
completed in this district a successful season's run; the first
time such a thing had ever happened in the United States-
one of the first trials of mechanical pulling of flax in all
the long history of the world, ; in an industry older than
civilization, i ? , r , , i
. , The idea was not to call especial attention to the particular
official of the United States Department of Agriculture who
visited Salem; the writer would not like to have Salem con
sidered as boorish or inhospitable' Mr , :
1 -But-it was to call attention to a system that is deficient ;
that is not getting results T" v i r - t , , r l 4
1 That ought to be reformed and brought jown to brass
tacks, with all its frills and furbelows and flapdoodle and
folderol cut out; junked; scrapped; sunk without a trace.
There are some 18,000 employees of the United States
Department , of "Agriculture at Washington, and they are
costing the people of this country some $32,000,000 annually
for their salaries and expenses " : f h f ; r-" rt &
And it is a safe guess that there are very few of them
who know the Salem district grows flax or. has a flax in
dustry or that the United States is importing hundreds of
millions o dollars! worth of supplies from-foreign countries
r that maiind ought Jo le grown and manufactured in?the
United States. - - :' -v: ' '-V ' -:
If one-tenth of the $32,000,000 a year were expended under
the right direction, in telling
the possibilities of their own country, hundreds 01 minions 01
' dollars annually would soon be kept at :li6me; and there
- would be no surplus of wheat or other grain produced in the
United States; there would on the contrarybera shortage;
we would be importing such articles from countries with
cheaper lands and lower wages. ,
The men in Congress who drew the present tariff law
know Oregon produces flax. Congressman Hawley knows it.
Ex-Congressman Fordney knows it. Senator McNary knows
it. They saw to it that flax manufacturers should-bewell
protected. They did the same for hemp manufacturers, and
for sheep breeders and potato growers, and 'for nearly all
the things that are grown or raised on the land.
iThe stage in this country is all set for a campaign for
full self sufficiency-- : A t.
And what is needed now is constructive statesmanship m
Washington; a campaign along businessjines for the devel
opment of our country's resources I i
' Not government ownership, nor government subsidy; but
government Icood sense, following along hard headed and
practical lineal-telling the men who ought to know- what
i ought to be done and can be done for self sufficiency; self
containmentt what can be done with direct profit, and with
vast benefit to Very class'of our people. 4 i M r I T
Whyl the 'flax and hemp industries alone; with the crops

can be madetoJkeep at home over $60,000,000 annually that
is' now goingVto foreign landsl Much bigger i things can be
done in sugar,' in wool, and still bigger things in the aggre
gate with a thousand other lines '
And the country can be made permanently prosperous,
by the cutting of just a little of the mountain of red tape
in Washington, and getting back to first principles and
down to brass tacks, under a program without any mystery
or flubdub in it. -Let just one real American captain of
industry turn himself loose with a tenth of the money that
is wasted in Washington, and he could put permanent pros
perity over for the United States in a year, or five orten
years at the most. 1 .- '-v

Salem Is favored with probably
the largest country trade of any
city ; in Oregoni -; This Is said
with full knowledge that Portland
is much larger than Salem. The
farmers are not asking special
privileges at the sacrifice of other
interests. But they; are asking
and are entitled to' a place to ?park
their cars. l; - Salem has a s public
square, three sides of which can
easily be used ror parking farm
ers' cars. If the city shouldLde
signate this as farmers parking
grounds, It "would solve . a. large
and difficult ; problem. It Isn't
fair for the farmers to go half a

the farmers to stay in town, to
be sociable and neighborly. It is
mighty little satisfaction in bar

That establishes no contact. What
we want Is to coma 40 know the

trouble. .r The law, an eye for an

stood a long test, of course, but
in this later day we have laid it
aside for mora humanitarian
things. .
To invoke the Mosaic law la to
invoke all Old Testament stand

cient answer to the editorial in

William Q. McAdoo is out with
an article lambasting the repub
lican party because of Its treat
ment of the - farmers. Mr. Mc
Adoo thinks he , is smart, f He
thinks he leap catch them going

cunning, but he is not broad
enough to take hold of a situa
tion like this. If there is one
man in America today who has no
right to lament tha treatment of
the farmers, that man Is William
O. McAdoo. He has done more
to hurt the farmers than any
man in the country. 1
We notice elx . Bend boys
climbed 1 Mt. Washington the
other-day. -However, -it appears
to us there are' a' lot' more useful
occupations and avocations than
mountain climbing. They haven't
done anything when they set to
the ; top. r They haven't reached
anywhere in pre-eminence, ; be
cause everywhere thousands of
people are mounting the summit
of every mountain. ; " It la Just
simply the American fad and we
have an idea that a lot of dilated
hearts will take toll In the years
to come.
We were very forcefully struck
by the declaration of a man in the
penitentiary who was about to
die. He said, "The sheriff , is in
his grave and I am 'going to the
gallows because he did not do his
duty and take my gun away."
That Is a terrible Indictment, but
it is one that must etand. It is
the buslnea of a police officer to
disarm his prisoners the first
thing, because any prisoner: of
spirit (would not hesitate to take
advantage by at least brandishing
his gun to secure liberty, and a
gun brandished by a man who Is
choosing quickly between -liberty
and confinement is a .most dan
gerous instrument. In the present
case the record can not be un
made, but in the future police of
ficers will protect themselves and
society by way of obeying the
first simple laws of their profes
sion. ' ;

It is seriously proposed to
enact a law outlawing mob vio
lence. As a matter of fact, the
mob had been outlawed always
and there are plenty of lawB to
handle every case. It will ; not
help matters for the government
to take the leader of a mob, slap
him on the hand three times and
tell him to be good. A mob is a
return to the elemental, to the
barbaric in us and the only way
it will ever be handled Is by
force. There are laws enough to
handle every mob in the world.
What we need is a few more
peace officers who are willing to
shoot to kill. When the mob rea

Adele Garrison's New Phase ef
HOW dicky; . VENTED v HIS
I furtively glanced at Dicky's
frowning face, wondering what
bad news , was contained in the
lengthy letter from Marsden, an
art editor and one of Dicky's best
friends. Then, as hastily as I
could, I started the, car, and put
the village f streets, with their
good-humored,-; kindly, but inor
dinately curious people behind us.
'. I knew better than to offer any
comment or question concerning
the letter, for the expression upon
my husband's face told me that
in some wayj the missive , held a
distinct blow to him. And I also
knew that it would not be long
before he told jme about It. It Is
one of the most precious perqui
sites of my marital life, this habit
of Dicky's, of bringing almost
every real problem and serious
trouble , to me j for discussion.

A Ouiet Question. "' '
. .From the corner of my ye I
could see what he was doing,
while apparently every bit of my
vision was focused upon the road
in front of me Thus I saw that
he read the letter thrice through.
his frown deepening with each
reading. Finally, with: a mut
tered objurgation, he crumpled
the sheets of note paper savagely
in his hands and flung them to
the floor ot the car. , ,
If I had: not been so worried
I should have j had hard work to
keep a smile hack at this action,
so characteristic; of Dicky. He
had been angry enough to de
stroy them ; ntterry, but a canny
something in the back of his brain
had ' made . him crush" Instead of
tear them and 'throw them to the
car floor, from which they could
be retrieved again, rather than to
the winds. That he meant me to
see them later I was es sure as
I was of the fact that he wished
at this instant; dramatically to in
dicate his determination never to
look at the , letter again.
It was my cue, I know. I won
der how many wives have studied
their husband's moods until they
know when lit Is safe to offer
comment or sympathy, or when It
is wiser to keep still. That Dicky
might snap his

As he finished I sent the car
ill to a burst of speed which served
two purposes. ; It gave vent to
my own irritation, and It divert

I "What the. deyil are you trying
to do?" he thundered. "Do you
want to have; this thing turn a
somersault or climb a tree? Don't
you know you can't drive like that
with this kind of car? You're
likely to kill both of us."
"Well!" I drawled demurely

rudeness I was secretely glad of

And, of course. I wouldn't want

I could feel Dicky's eyes star

averted face. : Then 1 heard a re
luctant, chuckle.
"Yes. I suppose I ought to live
so as to improve your mind,". he
said. Then, , with a .quick re
action to a despondency which I
had never before seen in him, he
added: "But this is no laughing
matter, 'I can tell you! ; I wish
you'd stop the car and look over
this blasted thing."
He picked up the crumpled let

began smoothing it out. -(To

The other business room Is to
