The opening paragraph of the current (July 30) Weekly
financial news letter of Henry Clews & Co., the Wall Street
authorities, is very encouraging. It is as follows :
I "A remarkable midsummer stock market has continued
during the past week. . Under the stimulus of increasingly
satisfactory business prospects and encouraging reports from
all "parts of the country, prices for special stocks have been
materially advanced and general' optimism has prevailed,
although profit , taking at -the close of the week was more
or less of a feature.; Sqme of the,,cxhief factors, which have
combined to promote this situation m the market have Jbeen
renewed assurances front the administration that cuts in
" taxation, even larger than - had been promised, may be re
garded as practically assured, with a probable curtailment of
surtaxes to a figure not over 20 per cent; the excellent rail
road earnings that are reported, with an advance in June of
35'per cent in gross over 1924 on forty-six roads, the improv
ing condition of affairs jn the steel trade with" very good
earnings statements and an increasing volume of business,
and the unusual demand for consumption goods" that is being
. felt by distributers in general."
The Journal could add that Jio iother place in iKe
unuea suites,-or in isortn America, -where line iiDer tiax can
be prbduced .-7i '...iy v -.. . .
. No place outside of western Oregon and Washington, and
small section of northwestern California. The Journal
could prove this by Lyster H. Dewey, botanist in charge of
iber plant investigations of the United States department of
agriculture, which position he has held for 25 years. - Mr.
Dewey is jthe highest-authority in the United States on this
point; and he told the writer 'of this .article' that very thing,
a feW evenings ago, during his recent visit here in the Salem
district, i . ' . ' ' ' t j .
'More 1 than this, there is no other district in the.worfd
as wel adapted to both the growing of fine f ibered flax and
he jnaking of fine linens; where the fields may be almost
within eyeshot of the factories ; where all the conditions
favorable to both growing and manufacturing are found.
jThe linen industry of North America is ours by natural
right -beginning at Salem and extending throughout western
Oregon and Washington, and. into northwestern California.
j Salem has a right to be the Belfast o t .the , New World;
canjattain to, that preeminence by keeping on keeping !on. to
the end of the chapter in fostering flax manufacturing here.

'? Strong criticism has been urged for some years against
some of the Subject matter of text books now in use in our
schools and colleges. And why and what this criticism is the
question which immediately arises in the minds of men and
women who have not noted any defect in the texts used in
modern Schools.
'm Today there is being put forth strong effort for the
establishment of world peace and to this end the elimination
of world misbnderstendingsshouldbe sought. J And in this
connection the propo'sition to revamp our textbooks on geog
raphy and. history is , demanding increased attention J in
educational and civic circles
;. : It is currently stated that it is not in politics but in the
sdiools that the' most effective work can be done to insure
mutual understanding among the different nationalities both
here and - abroad. All the signing of pacts, friendly agree
ments, or other, diplomatic formalities will ' not be abiding
where there is hatred or revenge harbored and taught either
through thejpress, byvoral expression or through the lise of

..And so dangerous isthe dormant spirit of opposition and
hatred , engendered in jurious ways tht the subject of
''eliminations of nationalmisunderstanding" occupied prom
inent place on the program of the "World Federation , of
Educational Associations" which recently held conference in
. p. This distinguished educational bodv urcred anneal in the
younger .generation whose attitude toward world matters is
i; kfinS determined largely in the classrooms to study without
: prejudice the world's people s and world problems. History
books, it was held, .should exalt peace, not glorify war. We
should commend those who accomplish . notable things in
education, industry, and moral progress as highly as those
whose generalship wins battles and fame.
I Geographies should not emphasize more the differences
which degrade, comparatively, some races than' those things
which are of common interest and helpfulness. It is difficult
to understand either individuals or nations when taught to
despise or hate them. But it is rather the effort to under
stand others that drives away distrust and encourages
amicable political relationships.
v And to the ideals of a correct understanding of other
nations or individuals true patriotism, is not sacrificed'.
Emphasis on the greatest good for all nations and individuals
M the highest type' of sound patriotism for it shatters the
artificial barriers which in various ways are raised between
the nations of the world.. And to this same end current opin
ion is urging against tne empjiasis on war and comparative
shortcomings of ; other peoples of the world. Every means

"Oregon, with Us possibilities for flax culture, should, become
a heavy producer of linens," said Edward T. Pickard, chief of the
textile division of the United States bureau of foreign and domestic
commerce, recently .in Portland. He said that because of Oregon's
i proximity to ithe Orient and its adequate harbors It should develop
a big trade, not only. in linens but In woolens and other textiles, with
countries bordering on the Pacific;; Can government officials, with
i full information on trade and commerce before them and making
; a specialty of spreading, that information before the country for the
benefit of the people, be mistaken? t Isn't Mr. Pickfard's insistence
