' CEOOKED TESTIMONY ?' - ' (Los Angeles Times.) j.i ' L ' "Trotzky is telling his scaflet bodyguard that America is coins in for militarism. Hejiays that American capital has ,, A vaVUVU 1 la A A AAA A U V W V A III 1I1.V.1UVUV .av. the sword and go abroad for larger fields..! He expresses the thought that a nation must use force in extending its contacts, ire would make us" believe that we have to use sixteen-inch guns to open up a market for our curling irons and clothespins. That seems to be the Bolshevik conception of cdmmercial relations. They have to be established with artillery. But the fact that Uncle Sam is blowing up his own battle.hips, reducing his' army and limiting his navy should be better evidence of our national policy than -the inflamed words of a Trotzky.' The fact is that the United States, the way things are going now, will not need for very long any European markets for her surplus products ; and especially her surplus food products And there are two reasons. . One is the fact that her markets in South and Central Amer ica are growing very fast ; taking more and more of her surplus, "and especially her manufactured surplus products. The other is that the growth of the United States in popu lation, and in self sufficiency, is so developing her own home markets that she is approaching, nearer every year Jhe time when, she will have few food products to export. Her own people J will need them all ' i . .. : And the United States would, become an imnnrter instead ;of an exporter of wheat within ten to fifteen years, if, our states men at Washington would get down to brass tacks and pay more I attention to self sufficiency in our own country; just exercising ,such horse sense as would be used by the manager of a great , business corporation. f M Let the United States grow and manufacture all of its own ; linens and other flax products; all its own b.emp-aud hemp .'products; all its own wool and woolens; all its own starches, and . all its other things that may be easily grown and turned into commercial products," and we would be importing wheat,' and besides a lot of raw products from other parts of the world that we are cither now not receiving or are receiving in relatively small quantities. -'' -. ;'"' ""' ' t. Mostly, this4 would be a matter of tariff adjustments, and . preferential duties for American bottoms, involving the same protective principle - . --' '""' ' V . i . Only these, plus a promotion bureau in one of the depart- ments that would really promote, and not just mill and mull 5 around with theories and give out dry statistics and bone dry ' advice. . - - - - - There are a lot of very well posted men who will not believe the writer when he tells them that the flax and linen industries here in Oregon are headed toward even greater things than . most pople dream of ; that linen is going to be cheaper than . cotton. That we can produce flax fiber here and sell it at a profit at a lower cost than cotton fiber cari be produced any . where on earth.' Henry Ford believes this, arid is. working on - the problem. Everybody will believe it,. pretty soon. There is no boll weevil m flax,-There re we neaaea; towards, a 5piuo,U00,0tX annual industry here, emplojing directly and indirectly a million people we are headed towards .an industry that will turn off $200,000,000 a year, and thenjw only on its way to greater things, i . ' ; AOCOJJJSTTSG FOR CRDIIXALS There are a good many reasons - why men go wrong. Some think It is natural "depravity; others think It Is due to bad company, and other people have Various oth ' er reasons, all of which have a , bearing, but one . of .the biggest reasons is povterty. Ktow,1 . w submit that no man ought to be a criminal simply because he Is poor, but it is a fact that men become criminals oftentimes be ; cause "of their need for money. Jt is wrong, of course, but we must find "some way of getting Into the minds of these men that crime is never a remedy for pdv- erty. . v . . ; ' ;,r. The man who- recently -robbed the bank at Kelso begged from ' door to door In that town for a week. Similar Instances are told everywhere. A ' man gets down and out and the first- thing he loses is his courage; the hext thins he loses la his will power, then his self-respect goes, and he abandons himself to anything to supply his necessities. It Is In such Instances that men turn to crime. : '' . The Door .we have alwm vith ? tis. and probably always will have, but they will not turn to crime if they; are stiffened up morally when they are young. Men must learn that it Is not a fallare to be poor; it is not a crime to be down and out. There is Just as much reason to be honest although poor as hottest and' rich. But we must take .the viewpoint of these poor devila who lose' everything be-c.v- cf their rverty, wo are c '-.vf' in their necessities, who . ' ' Hium ; ' . - Kilter VtMftr Joft Dept. 10 Orafoa, aa aaeoBd-alaaa Baattor are no, moths in linens. - Not only dulled all their finer qualities. We must get: to these men the thought ' that the avenue of crime is no way to recover from poverty, It does not win In any way, nor in any place. - - - ' 7',:- PARTY PLATFORJI IS NEEDED The voters "and 'taxpayers ; !of Oregon are beginning to realize hat our members to the Jeglsla ture and our executive officers are elected to office without any defi nlte declaration of principles promises or Instructions as to what the officer is to do after he is elected. ) The campaign promises of the individual candidate is all that the people have to rely npon These are in way binding with the officer and with no party be hind them. There ought to be some way to put the party, which they represent, behind the candi dates. As It IsTlhe candidates do not owe any allegiance or fidelity to his constituency and as a re sult he runs 'wild" and acts as his own party!. There should be a party plat form behind air - elective officers of the public and the party plat form and pledge should be bind ing in their official acts. At pres ent there is no punishment that can be meted out for failure perform party duty,' or disloyalty. Bend Press. ' riCKIXa AT THE NEWSPAPERS We talk a good "deal about the power of the press, and yet the politicians buffet the press around just as tney please. You never against a newspaper. He rather takes delight in doing so. ' In our last campaign one of the candi dates for president had as his larg est stock in trade complaining about the newspapers. H i Th,ere is a deficit in the postal department the same as there has always been, and the first thing pounced upon is the newspaper postage. . The newspapers are pay ing too high postage already. The postage Is something that has to be absorbed by the publication. There is no way to pass it on. It weans that the newspapers have that much less money to spend on keeping up and improving their publications. It is not fair to the newspapers and it is a reflection on their power or alleged power, i It Is time for the newspapers to get together and fight. , They have been run over by the poli ticians long enough. The primary election Jaw ; enabled newspaper men to score personally, but it did not help the newspapers in a material way. They continue to get the worst of it. ALASKAX INDIAN'S The time has come when Salem should get very busy about the continuation of the Alaskan Indi ans in the Indian school here. They have been here for a num ber of years and graciously the government is permitting those already here to remain until they graduate. That Is a wise decis ion. . '",; K, What we should do is to real ize our responsibility to the Indian children In Alaska not yet in school. It, Is all right ; to talk about reservation schools and In dian schools up there but they do not get them. The Indians of Alaska are In the habit of coming down here. Sent to ; any other school they would be timid and dissatisfied. The large list of sat isfied i former students ; assures every one in Alaska that the In dians are fortunate to be sent here to school. These young people most have higher education and Chemawa is better equipped to train them than any other school. We know the needs; we know what ought to be done, and for us to remain Idle while a great wrong is being done to the Indian children of Alaska should not be endured for a mo ment longer. HELPING THE KIDDIES The Corvallls children's home is asking for $50,000. Certainly the need for this money is appar ent to every citizen of Oregon. It is to be used for new buildings. . An orphan should be a charge of the state and yet the state is not responding: to this obligation. Another way is to have pritate in stitutions which are mere money making machines and not always manned by men with kind hearts. The third way is to have a splen did organization like the WCTU take, hold and provide a home for" these children. Every woman con nected .with the organization is sympathetic and every move made Is for the betterment of the child ren. Certainly the state of Ore gon can afford to get behind such institutions. f - - ! We spend a good deal of money for our training schools 'to take charge of the boys and' irls who make mis-steps, but we 'spend no money for the parentless children who are just as much wards of the state as if they were wayward. Giving to this home is givinr to the orphans of the state a chance for life, an opportunity for de veloping Into good citizens, and they can ; repay the ' state ' many times over by the character of ser vice they can perform when they go out into the world. The Cor vallls home should appeal. BITS FOR BREAKFAST I , . . Four hundred fifty-nine was the number ' That many prisoners in the Oregon penitentiary last night W S And of that number 77 fought in .the .World 'war, or some other war. In the service of Uncle Sam. This information was secured for the benefit of certain good people in Salem who are in the habit of remembering these men at Christ mas time. r ' .i - V V ! : They are human, and they help ed to . uphold the honor of their country at a time when it needed men..

The discussion will be continued early tomorrow with a view to presenting , a new agree ment to the senate before night. . Senator Edge, republican. New Jersey, who is in charge of the pay increase measure, participated in these conferences but he and others declined to discuss details pending the presentation of the proposal. He said, however, that be still was prepared to move at the first opportunity to take the measure up for, passage over tbe veto. 1 Will Not Delay Administration - leaders and others participating in the meet ing with the president expressed the opinion that Mr. Coolidge s concern was confined to providing the necessary revenue and' that there was no disposition to delay unnecessarily senate action on the veto. . Many proponents of the pay bill expressed a' contrary opinion, however, charging that there was a purpose to kill the pay measure. ; ' . - Senator Edge does not under stand that there is a movement to combine the pay and mail rate in crease legislation. He said he would oppose such a step. It is his judgment that congress should act on the veto, an over riding of which would make the pay bill a law automatically.
