THE , OREGON ECONOMIC CONFERENCE
t The Oregon, economic coiif erence
' 1 The first one hcldln the United States
Which concluded its sessions at the Oregon Agricultural
College yesterday, will prove the beginning of a movement re
y suiting in great good to this state, if its sound conclusions arc
v followed up with action, and with further discussion, and further
; sifting and action, with team-work on the part of the men on
; the land joined with that of the men in the cities.
. 3 - Not a great deal that is absolutely new to the readers of
the Slogan pages of The Statesman of the past five years will
: be found in the data and'thc conclusions drawn from that data.
; The big thing of the conference was tbe getting of the big
r jnen of the cities and the leaders among the men on the land
. together with their feet under the same table, and all the cards
' " face up on the table . ' .
' tFor both sides and all sides have their problems and their
rights and wrongs."
There is a great deal to be said, which will be said from time
.'to time in these columns, mostly in commendation, concerning
the conclusions ' '
-' f And some ihings, wJll need elaboration and explanation, and
even opposition, as applied to the conditions in the immediate
Salem district -'V ; ,, . ,
- .Take one. thing: The conclusion as to flax is that fiber
flax growing. in the Willamette valley ought to be encouraged,
as factories are developed to work up the raw materials. So
far so goodi Also, the conclusion is that perhaps flax growing
for .the seed may be successfully carried on in some sections of
Oregon, and that there should be experiments along this line.
"V i Perhaps so, as to some eastern Oregon sections; though the
r writer does not know any such. !
But not as to the western part of Oregonnot asTto the Wit
I laractte valley Not as to the Salem distrrcr 'KaxgwingfOr
7 the, seed only wouldmot be 8 good thing f otialeitt district
' farmers. .Itwo.uld not pay. But when thegrowmgorflax for
i the? fiber wlully deveTdpetlberVas it will surely be in time, and
!- the: writer belictes soon, the "matter of furnishing home grown
I flax seed to our linseed oil mills will be taken care of as a by
"' product.". v '
. y? We will have a lot of flax seed above the amount that will
1 be needed for sowing more flax and for the wholesale drug trade
and other purposes. Tliiir will go to the linseed oil mills.
- : Right now, the 'thing to do is to get the factories to keep
i on getting them, till we produce $100,000,000 annually of flax
L products; till we produce half asjawch with this. one crop as the
I s raw material basis as is now received for all the products of the
soil in Oregon. It can be done. The time is ripe for it. The
f development ought to take place within a few years.

THE ADMINISTRATION PLAN
President Coolidge does not re
gard it as a part of his duties to
work out the details of .the wheat
moving plan. He has given his
adherence to the general proposi
tion and be is very wisely leaving
it to others to work out the de
tails. Wheat farmers are the ones that
need help now. They are now in
the only way they have ever had
of getting such help. It is also
possible to guard against the fu
A special committee in congress

so wild on expenses that we must
not be Satisfied with anything ex
cept cutting to the bone. Taxes
are too hard to pay for us to pal
liate them. There is just one
thing to do in taxation and that is
to hew straight to the line letting
the chips fall where they may.
-FALL IS 8IC K
Dispatches say that Mr. Fall is
sick. He certainly has had enough
happen to him lately to at least
interfere with the succe of his
digestion. Fall has been un
masked and Is now revealed as the
betrayer of public trust. How
ever, this is not surprising to the
people of New Mexico. We spent
three months there two years ago
and failed to find any man who
defended Fall. Universally they
pronounced him a crook.
THE OLD STORY
It was Wilson Who talked about
open covenantsi. openly arrived at
and became- the most . secretive
president in the history of the
country. , sThe hew . labor premier
of England has announced that
there will be no secret deplomacv.
but no one will believe him. For
centuries England has never failed
to keep a marked deck of cards
up its sleeve. No matter what the
subject was, England was always
trying to put across a special deal.
A BAD COMBINATION
A man named -Miller is -under

THE CLOSER WALK . j
"Oh, for a closer walk with God!" Such is the spontaneous
aspiration of every truly religious heart! Whether one be a
Catholic, a Protestant, a Unitarian or a Jew, whether he be a
believer in the inerrancy of the Old Jestainent Or in evolution,
does not so much matter. For religion does not consist of in
tellectual conceptions or of outward form or formula, of cere
monies or observances. A believer in any of these things, a
punctilious observer of all the requirements of any ect or de
nomination may be as far from real religion as -one who never
darkens a church door or kneels at any altar. Por religion is a
matter of the inner life, of the heart, of the very oul of man.
Some are coming to understand this and are seeing that there
is a vast difference between sectarianism, ccclcsiastieisui, or
church membership and religion.
Both the Old and the New Testament make this perfectly
clear. The Prophet Isaiah in the first chapter of his prophecy
declares in effect all these outward things may become "an
abomination" unto (jod who is satisfied with? nothing less tljan
a changed, an uprjght and a pure life. "Wash you," lie com
mands, "make you clean; cease to do evil;- learn to do well,"
while Christ has no unrelenting condemnation for anylfclass ex
cept the hypocritical, who profess but do not; live; who cry
Lord, Lord, but who do not do -the will of (Jod ; wlio claim to
be His followers but do not manifest His life or spirit. Religion,
must have its source deeper than the lips, higher than any selfish
impulses or the cold and unsympathetic intellect) It is the con
scious activity of the human spirit longing and striving for har
mony and fellowship with the Great Spirit of the universe.
No wonder that Jesus declared to Nicodenmii, "Marvel not
that 1 said unto theeye must be born again!" j How shall one
be able to keep the first, the greatest commandment, to love God
with all his heart, mind, soul
time, effort and affection are all absorbed with the things of the
flesh and the earth? One can not leve God SutU lie has devel
oped a love for the righteousness, truth and life: of Clod. Love
requires no force of the will to cause it to flow - it needs no spur
or urging outside its own blessed spontaneous promptings. The
lover does not reason himself into love for theidear object of
his affections. He loves her in spite of himself, because to him
she is lovable, because she is the embodiment of all that is good
and beautiful. Cultivate a love of all that is pure,- honest, true,
righteous, unselfish and holy and
who is the perfect embodiment of all these beautiful and holy
The changed life which Jesus demanded of- Nicodeinus and
which He demands of every man who would be His follower is
no hysteria of emotionalism, no legerdemain of self-deception, no
self-adulation of an exaggerated ego. It is nothing less than a
change in the fleshy propensities, the sinful desires and the sor
did ambitions of the ordinary, worldly life for the holy, elevat
ing, soul-growing and soul-satisfying desires, ambitions and
realities of the quickened spirit of man. i
How shall we reach tins changed, this elevated, this most
blessed state of life? The New Testament makes the way so
plain that "a wayfaring man," who desires to be a Christian,
"though -a fool, need not err therein." We are to resist the
promptings of our baser selves in order that the better angels of
our natures may assert themselves. We are to overcome the
Satan within us in order that the Christ may arise. Not the
mythical Satan outside of us, he vrJth the horns, the cloven hoofs,
and forked tongue, but the Satan of our own natures, the Sa
tanic elements and propensities in s duplicity, hatred, envy,
sordid selfishness cruelty injustice, dishonesty, impuritv, anger,
unrighteousness we all know what they are. HaviHg done our
honest part to overthrow these things in our natures, we shall
not need to prompt God or Christ to do theirs, nor fear that they
will fail us. J
Where to begin this effort-l Begin by engaging in a death
grapple with self. Be sure. that the refreshing springs of the
spirit have not their sources in selfishness. Out of this flow
nearly all the brood of ills that have cursed humanity. On the
other hand, t here -is nothing that will stimulate and strengthen
the growth of the better elements in us more than loving and
unselfish thoughts of and deeds toward others.
Moreover such unselfishness brings an immediate and prec
ious reward. One whq is. counted a religious authoritv says:
"Whenever we do an act of kiiidly service for another, forgetful
of and with no thought of self or gain, many times it does us
more good than the one for whom we do it. Our life is broad
ened, ennobled, expanded, lifted out of and above the dwarfed
and the stnnted of the commonplace. We find our own lives
in losing them in the larger human service." This is expressing
in words that may easier reach our undeveloped human under
standing the same truth that Jesus is recorded n.s expressing.
"He that seeketh his life shall lose it and he that loscth his life
for my sake shall find it." ;
"O Master, let me walk with Thee
L In lowly paths of service froer . J,
Tell me Thy secret, help me bear
i The strain of toil, the fret of care.
"Help me the slow of heart to move J
- By some clear, winning word of love ;
Teach me the wayward feet to stay,
And guide them in the homeward way.
"Teach me Thy patience -r still with Thee
In closer, dearer company,
In work that keeps faith sweet and strong,
In trust that triumphs over wrong;
"In hope that sends a shining ray y
Far down the future's broad 'uing way ;
' In peace that only TIhmi canst give,
With Thee, O Master, let iue live."

bottles in rows aad then fire at-
them with rock at a'' distance of
50 feet or more. ' ' . ; .
Have different sorts of bottfcs
count a different number of points
and fire in turn. The first boy
making a hundred points, because
of the bottles he has smashed,
wins the game. f '
Never play this game where the
rocks or broken lass are liable-to
cause any one any convenience W
