LET'S GET OUBS: BEET SUGAK FACTORIES ! '
; : : .. f : -V '..Nil- ; ) A I
Sugar beets last year hat Jhe greatest average value per
acre of any major field crop grown by the American farmer,
according to Charles II. Allen, president of the Farmers Sugar
Co., Defiance, Ohio, who spoke before the Salem Kjiwanis club
on September 16, and before the Salem Rotary club ion Septem
ber 17, 1924. I j :.r. ;-v ; p ' "
. - In his address iere, Mr. (Allen pointed out that jsugar beets
rerr.oVfl! less fertility from the soil than any other crop and
inade a plea against the passage of any law affecting1 agriculture
in the United States unless it first answers the question: Does
it conserve the fertility of the soil! j i jj
,-,t-,Mr. Allen now calls attention in a letter to The Statesman
to figures available; for last year that show the individual farmer
profited more from sugar beets than any other crop
And he, says Michigan and Colorado are typical. j
iProf. J. F. Cox bead of the farm crops department of Mich
igan Agricultural college, is quoted as stating that sugar beets
paid the largest gross return to, Michigan farmers! of any field
$rop grown in the! state last year.' Statistics pn Colorado, an
other important sugar growing state, are contained in a recent
issue of Facts About Sugar, showing that beets ranked first in
that state among major crops in average total value to the
farmers per acre. ; ' ii.
In view of j these figures it is lamentable, Mr. Allen con-
tends, that America should pay from $250,000,000 to $500,000,000
'annually to Cuba for, sugar that could be raised on American
soil with great I profit to the American farmer. ''Under pur
'present policy of federal encouragement,' he says, "beet acreage
is increasing and new factories are being built, indicating that
a much, larger proportion of i our sugar supply will be home
gro wn in the f utiire. ' ; j t....f. :"''f.-pr
f This is desirable in times of peace as a means of keeping
down the price j through competition with foreign sugar, and
"also as a national asset in time of war; not that we are looking
for. war, but neither were we in 1914 or 1916. .
The writer is not sure" just what Mr. Allen means when he
speaks of our "present policy of federal encouragement." J If
the authorities ; It j Washington are making special efforts ! to
- induce the growing of sugar beets and the building of beet sugar
factories, they are doing a very wise thing j ; ; H .
v ,' And the writer, does not know that there are two groups
of factory people; looking, to Salem as a possible location for a
.beet sugar factory -to say nothing of the interests represented
by Mr. Allen. , ' ; ,;. 3 ' :"
V ' ;The commercial . interests of Salem are ready to give aid
, and encouragement in this field. The representatives of these
groups will be received here .with open arms. j
; Let's get ours, in beet sugar factories j
j And pass the good work along to Eugene, Albany, Corval
lis, McMinnville and the other valley cities which may be able
to guarantee the pecessary acreage; or rather the necessary
labor in planting, 1 weeding and harvesting, which are the im
portant items. ; ; . i " .
ASS UA, SHE KNOWS j
The American housewife whosb family j breadwinner was
imong the 4,500,000 unemployed workers mentioned by Mr,
A Gamuel Gompers in 1920, knows that employment and wages
are more secure and better than they were under the Democratic
Jree trade tariff policy of that distressful year. She knows full
well that these better conditions exist under the present Repub
lican policy of protection to American industries
. And nobody in all our, broad land knows so much about
the horrors of industrial idleness as does the American house
wife. She. handles jthe purse and does the weekly marketing.
She knows what Unemployment, part time work. or low wasres
mean, to the household. She' knows that when the purse is low
or empty, it matters not how cheap goods may be on the market,
hhe must curtail the purchases of meats, groceries and clothing
for' the family. " ; i . ,
If every American housewife who remembers the trying
days of 1919 and 1920, under the Democratic free trade tariff,
"and the millions p workmen out of employment, will carry that
juwaor ;wuo ner; to me ballot box this year, Coolidge and
Dawes will have an overwhelming majority over the combined
opposition on democratic free trade candidates and the candi
dates of the Socialist-thirty party experiment in government.
they would have bankrupted the
farming Industry of the state.
Bankers received help because
they were carrying the farmers
rather than foreclosing them,' and
a number of banks actually failed
because they could not get help
to carry this burden. These are
some of the things that private
business did to help the farmers.
But the great state of Oregon,
through Its land board, has insti
tuted foreclosures as heartlessly
as Shylock ever attempted to col
lect his interest.
In campaign times there is some
atitude allowed for language, but
it never should go to the extent
of actually punishing the residents
of the state. The government of
Oregon is punishing certain farm
ers In the face of a regularly en
acted law to prevent precisely
what is now being done.
The league of nations has never
been recognized by America, but
it has continued to exist and
function just the same. It would
get along better, of course, ; with
America's help. One of the out
standing things it is now consid-
ring is outlawing all war. SIf it
does that it will be worth while.
There must be concerted action
in order "to outlaw war. One na
tion' can't do it. All the nations
acting together can always make
war impossible. Certainly the
world paid enough for the last
war. War is wrong. We have
said many times that aside from
the bloodshed the worst part of
war was the reconstruction after
wards, i' : . i '
THE SCHOOL FUND
.As an evidence of how the at
tack on the Irreducible school
fund is simply a cheap kind of
politics It is only necessary to
mention that the! school land
board has sent out for foreclosure
1X1 notes and mortgages. On 58
of this number i the interest was
paid in full in 1922; j 45 in 1923
and six in 1924. It wil) be seen
that there was only from six
months to a "year and a lialf In
terest due on all 181 of these
notes which are under foreclos
ure." 4 -V- '
-:' Anticipating a condition of hard
times such' as"we have . had: and
being anxious to provide I q ad
vance to prevent the farmers
f ram losing their iand the -legls-
. Ure passed a' law meeting pre
ely th!s emergency., which law
Laa been di3resardcd. . In chapter
272 of session laws of 1923 we
' 1 1 the" following:;
'TrovilSrj tl r t U It sioull ap
pear to the satisfaction of the
board that the mortgagee can not
make the payment of interest and
that foreclosure will work an in
justice and that foreclosure is not
necessary to secure the fund from
loss, - the board . may extend ' the
time for paying such interest as
now due for a period not exceed
ing two years."
It is evident from this that the
land board is unnecessarily fore
closing mortgages and the; law
was enacted to prevent them doing
this very thing.1 There can only
be one purpose In this and that is
to exploit - the condition of ; the
school fund. There is only i one
reason why the condition of the
school fund might be exploited at
this time. That reason is the
election, which occurs next month.
The bankers and the business
men generally not only In Oregon
but In the United States have from
necessity adopted the policy that
the state of Oregon adopted from
choice. 11 J tLeyiiiot f dose'-so
It must be admitted that there
is a good deal of uncertainty and
guess work in politics. It is gen
erally agreed that the independent
party would get the greater num
ber of the German-American vote.
Yet right on the heels of such an
announcement there comes a re
port that at a public meeting In
Germany the name of President
Wilson was loudly cheered when 1
mentioned. The fact of the case
is that the German-American vote
is not going to be delivered. Those
citizens are practically all thrifty
and they want to let well enough
alone. They know that they are
prosperous because of republican
laws, and they know that to vote
for either La toilette or Davis
would be to throw a monkey-
wrench In the orderly process of
their progress. They are not go
ing to do it. i
A GOOD MAX GONE
Judge George G, Bingham was
a man who could be spared with
great regret. He was more than
merely a yudge. He was a great
citizen and his judicial duties
were conducted along the lines of
high citizenship. He wanted to
serve and he made his office serve.
He wanted to do things that were
right for the people and he in
terpreted law in a systematic
manner. His place will be nard
to fill, yet it is good that such a
man lived. 1 - ,
The MacDonald government was
a minority government to start
with. It was never a coalition
government. However, it was a
swapping government. ! It was put
intb power because the liberals
for reasos of their own united ;
with the laborites with the result
that a majority for MacDonald
was secured- The situation was
incongruous at the best and Mr.
MacDonald has not been strong
enough to hold it.
