If Mark Hanna and Theodore Roosevelt were alive, they
would see their works justified with reference to the Panama
canal. h''S''--- - 1J" ' -1 'frr'i ? iv:
Almost over night, when the great majority of the Ameri
s can people were thinking of the proposed construction .of a
canal by the Nicaragua: route, Mark Hanna switched the coun
try to the Panama route; and bitter attacks followed filled
with all sorts of insinuations and open charges of corruption
and collusion with the French .-holders of the stock of the
comps-.y that held the rights : . . '.
And almost over night, President Roosevelt connived at
the setting up of the new Republifc of Panama, with which con
cessions were arranged for the canal zone against the howling
protestsof the government- of Colombia, followed by the
attacks of men in both houses of Congress and the ; criticism
of thousands of people, in this country. But President Roose
velt hacked his action by the power of our frowning battleships
r and went on his way in planning the construction of the great
i waterway joining the two oceans ; where the French company
I had failed; and our millions were poured into the project, and
the canal zone was made a health resort instead of a death
district-- '- '.; " .u ; ':' :':' :' v , " : '" -j?

TtCtassage was made by 1311 vessels .'the first year, with
a tonnage of 5,860,000, and paying toUs of $4470,000.. Last
year 1272 ships used the waterway, having a tonnage of 21,210,
CC0, and paying tolls of $18,975,000. More than 20,000,000
vc--Li have passed through the waterway since it was opened
to commerce, and they have paid an aggregate of about $76

And it has come about that the great project begins to

in tTfording relief from:the congested business, of the trans
ccntkisntal railroads and its great assistance in building up an
ocean csrryinj' trade between the two coasts of the United

fact V..-1 L.-:'!y three "tto'asani

Furthermore, there la a winter

the more Important that the de
serving be intelligently directed
to where work can be obtained
than for ten men to be seeking

forms a ' valuable clearing house

' THE LEAGUE HAS FAILED"""
Mussolini bluffed the league of
nations Into doing as flagrant an
outrage to. Greece " aa th world
has ever seen done to any nation.
The Italian swashbuckler strutted
through Europe " blowing blood
out of his nostrils and threaten
ing- what he would do. to poor
iittle Greece. He i treated , the
league of nations with contempt
and as a result It surrendered un
conditionally to him and Is mak
ing -Greece pay. V ; u
It is a complete breakdown of
the league of nations in its first
test, f It also shows the necessity
of having our international obli

cannot be bluffed.
The senate committee under
the leadership of Senator McNary
Is studying reforestation, a virile
subject in Oregon. In connection
with this there must be every ef
fort put forward to prevent for
est fires. Every day now trees
we burned down that are badly
needed. Tree murder is a crime
and unnecessary destruction of
trees ought to be punished the
same as any . other crime. We
need to . replant our forests but
first we need to protect the trees
we now have. . ; V
SALEM MUST RESPOND
It . would be Intolerable for
Salem not to raise its proportion
of, the Japanese relief. It does
seem as though the Red Cross
could spare a considerable part of
this' out of its treasury and the
people would be glad to pay he
balance. However. ? the 5 Oregon
Statesman Is Interested in just
one thing and that Is in giving the
people of Salem an opportunity
to show their sympathy for Japan
at this time.
HE WILL NOT DO
Senator Pat Harrison, at Port
land the other day, tried to start

If there is one man above another
who should not be president, it is
William G. McAdoo. He did
more to disturb the . country,' to

: FATHER'S MISSION
I hastily picked up the two tiny
pieces of yellow ' paper, . Btepped
back Into the room my father had
just vacated and closed the door!
The good woman of the house,
who had given me unstinted, smil
ing permission to look over his
room, was busy In her kitchen be
low stairs. I could hear her sing
ing about her work, and the other
members of her. household were
outdoors. . I was sure of being ab
solutely undisturbed, fair I had left
Dicky in the car, smoking a cigar,
his. head on the seat, tils feet on
one of the doors, a picture of con
tented laziness. -
' With trembling fingers I turned
the two pieces of. paper over.! 'One
was absolutely blank. " The other,
evidently the edge of ? two lines,
held on each line sT fragment of a
word. The first line showed the
letters "nee," the lower "ake,
and a line of a letter before the
"a" which migh be almost any let
ter of the alphabet.

a pre-arranged agreement which
had sent my father hurrying' to

(As I stood there, there flashed
Into my mind the remembrance of
a queer little speech my . father
had made when I had told .him
that Grace Draper had been - re
leased from prison.
. : "So the wolves are abroad." he
had said, thoughtfully. "Then It

I put the possibility from me
with an amused little laugh at my
own conceit. That Allen Drake
had seen to it' that a watch was
kept upon the-girl's movements

a man so busy and brilliant as he
should summon a veteran of pow
er and prestige like my lather to
a conference upon my 'perils was

cheered me, that with Grace 'Dra

again both my father and Allen
Drake would be far away -from my
vicinity. .--.v :
' : I put the tiny pieces of telegram
carefully away in my purse for de
struction when I should have op
portunity, and went down to my
waiting husband. ;
"Well, old dear?" Dicky asked
"Did you gather up all the discard
ed neckties and bills?" .
"There was very little to gath-
er up," I replied sedately. "But

I'd like to put the draperies up to

There were the traditional "mil

en the morrow. How I was 1 to
execute this unreasonable request
of my husband's I had no idea.
His thoughtlessness was aggravat
ed, also, by the fact that he had
taken away Jerry Ticer from the
important task of getting a decent
place, cleaned for Jim and Katie
to eat and sleep. But the thought

WOMEN READ ADS IN MORNING AND
MORNING PAPER IS BEST SERVICE;
SURVEY RECENTLY MADE PROVES IT
A special advertisers edition has
been issued by the Wichita, Kan.,
Eagle following a new advertising
campaign started by the paper
early this year and built around a
new theme for a morning newspa
per. , , j : , ,
v A sunrey had revealed that the
women of Wichita homes were by
far the greatest . readers of the
morning newspapers; that they
were to be found, in their homes
In the . morning, . where amid
household duties or ( supervision
they had the time and llesure to
plan and study the ! needs and
wants of family, of home and of
Self. ,, ; - .. irX i ; .
-Careful analysis, developed that
the woman of today Is not at home
with any degree of regularity ex
cept in the morning. Social life
in both cities and smaller towns,
together with the movies, autos,
etc.,- keep the modern woman es
pecially occupied during the after
noon and evening.
With this fact established, the
Eagle found that the women were
constantly reading the advertising
pages of the Eagle in the-morning.
I ' Advertises Women in Home
f A series of thrice-a-week adver
tisements of 1,600 and 1,260 line
copy with an "occasional full-page
ad were prepared tor the Eagle,
emphasizing this theme and Illus
trated to show the woman in her
home, amid morning-home scenes,
tlqfe breakfast room, boudoir, etc.
Insertion of these advertisements
commenced in the Eagle and they
have been continued consistently
on a three-times-a-week schedule.
- Broadsides of most of these ads
were sent Into the national field
as Well as to local advertisers. The
returns from this campaign result
ed in a decision to continue it up
on a permanent basis.
As the series progressed the in
terest developed to such a. point
that many of the leading Wichita
merchants who were or had com
menced placing , the heaviest vol
ume of their newspaper advertis
ing In the Eagle, in the morning,
gave signed letters outlining their
experiences with Eagle advertising

discontented. "Why didn't we fly to California?" they
