Then was fulfilled thai whi?-h was spoken by Jeremy the pro

OUR GOLD AND OUR FORESTS
Gold is a masric word. It symbolizes riches. It stirs the
imagination. It is the yard stick of all values
And yet every year, according to a writer in the Eugene
Register, the value of the forest products alone of Oregon,
Washington and British Columbia is 13 times greater than
the value of the entire gold'ouput of the United States.
All the gold mines of this nation produce annually about
$40,tKM),000 worth of gold. Each year the value of the for
st products of Oregon, Washington and British Columbia is
California is the leading gold state, but not an outstand
ing timbered state. Yet each year the output of California s
forests is worth twice as much as the annual output of her
Each year, on the average, Oregon realizes 20 times a3
much from her forest products as California realizes from
her gold mines.
Our .timber is a splendid resource. By reforestation, it
can be made to last forever
And by the refinements of manufacturing it will be mul
tiplied in value; in the increased prices from paper and the
manufactures of paper; in the higher values of furniture
and all the special things made from lumber.
Some day, when Salem uses for these higher grade manu
factures the ripe forest growths annually harvested in her
tributary territory, with the employment of the available
"white coal" coursing down the streams that may be harn
essed for this work, the capital city will be great as a forest

initiative and referendum with one they w,ould select, and
when the time came they ran me up against W. S. TTRen,
the father of the scheme. The night of the debate the house
was not only packed, but the open windows and half of the
school lot. Well, we had a good time, and Mr. UKen and
myself, have been good friends ever since.
I always enjoyed going to the Rickey school house for
such gatherings, because I had splendid backing from the
Humphreys boys, the Gesners, the Culvers and the Glovers,
also Billy Tayor, Ed Hartley and the Craigs of Macleay.
The days when young and old Took a deep interest in the
discussion of policies pertaining to the life of the nation
are gone, and now one of Marion county's landmarks as a
neighborhood lyceum is also going. Many of the notable
characters of those earlier days have also passed away, and
the rest of us are gliding in their direction.

(While official duties hold Frank Davey in Portland for
the time being, his home is in Salem, and his house, too, and

Great is this electrical age. The price of electric service
for home use has been decreased 15 per cent shce 1913,
while other commodities in the general cost of living are still
50 per cent higher than they were in 1913. If the price of
household electricity had increased since 1913 in the same
ratio as the cost of living, the average rate throughout the
nation today would be 14.3 cents per kilowatt hour, whereas
it actually is 7.4, which measured in terms of the 1913 dollar
would make it only 4.2 cents today. The resident lighting
customer has also had the benefit of the improvements in
the efficiency of lamps and material reduction in the price
of lamps. More than 23 times as much light can now be
obtained with the 40-watt mazda lamp for the same expense
as was obtained with the original 16-candle power carbon
lamp. The price of the mazda lamp is less than one-fifth
what it was when it was put on the market.
Six American colleges in the Near East are seeking an
endowment fund of $15,000,000
And more than $10,000,000 of this fund has already been
These schools, the best known of which is Robert College
at Constantinople, are remaking this part of the Orient
For example, the Turkish government is sending 24 young
men to Robert College to study engineering. They will be
used to install modern sewage systems, water supply and
electric lighting in interior Turkish towns.
At the university in Beirut the government of Iraq is
supporting 27 students, the government of Palestine seven,
the government of Ethiopia six, and the Soudan five
And nearly every modernizing influence which is lifting
this part of the world into line with scientific progress can
ben traced to these American institutions.
All the six colleges were founded by Americans; are most
ly financed by Americans. All of them are chartered by
either the state of New York or the state of Massachusetts.
This campaign for endowment is being pressed on the Pa
cific coast, and Dr. Bayard Dodge, president of the Ameri
can Unviersity of Beirut, will speak in Salem during April.
Every one of these schools is a radiating center of inter
national good will in a region which has always been the
seat and breeding place of wars
And they are factors of immense importance in creating
friendship for the United States in all the countries of that
region, where European nations, more often than not, are
regarded with suspicion, becuase of their supposed seeking
America is the most highly idealized of nations in that
part of the world, because of the unselfish work of the
American colleges, and for the reason that this country has
no imperialistic or colonization enterprises there.
The American colleges deserve well of every citizen of
the United States; of every person on the globe who loves
his fellow men.
The Rickey school house Is to go!

with a $5,000 building.
This brings back pleasant memories of stirring political
vtimes. - -
The Rickey school house was the scene of many an inter
esting and exciting discussion in the days long past, when
crowds from the neighborhood, from Macleay and from
Salem taxed its space to overflowing.
,?In the days of populism, free silver and other diverting
issues, the Rickey neighborhood was a hot-bed of partisan
contest and 'bitterness, and for years betwen 1890 and 1900
that school house was the forum in . which their forensic
battles were fought out.
f lJay Bowerman, since president of the state senate and
acting governor,, was a young man, son of a farmer in that
vicinity, and was then as now an ardent republican, though

scraps with the rabid democrats and populists around there.

Tried By Court Martial,
THE MORNING ARGUMENT
By Robert Quillen
-GIBRALTAR, Apr. S. (AP)
A second British naval officer con
cerned in the controversy over
jazz music and the ship's band on
the British battleship Royal Oak
at Malta has been condemned by
court martial and duly punished.
Captain Kenneth G. B. Dewar.
commander of the Royal Oak, re
ceived a similar sentence to that
imposed on Commander H: M
Daniel, in the court martial whicl
concluded on the plane carrier
Eagle here tonight.
He was found guilty of acting
in a manner prejudicial to disci
pline in acting and forwarding a
letter written by Commander Dan
iel criticizing Rear Admiral St. G.
Collard in command of the first
squadron of the Mediterranean
The second charge agarnst Cap
tain Dewar of accepting and for
warding a letter whose terms were
contrary to the king's regulations,
was announced as "not proved."
The sentence was dismissal from
his ship and a severe reprimand
Captain Dewar's trial was the
more dramatic because he faced
Rear Admiral Collard. his super
ior officer, and several hot ex
changes occurred between the two
men. 'Dewar conducted his own
defense and made a fifty minute
speech to the court. He attribut
ed the whole trouble to "uncon
trollable fits of temper on the part
of Rear Admiral Collard."
He ridiculed the idea that he
and Daniels had entered into a
Machiavellian conspiracy to re
Interesting evidence was given
by the chaplain of the Royal Oak,
the ReV. Harry Gouleing. who tes
tified that he had called on Rear
Admiral Collard and remonstrat
ed with him for "Insulting very
cruelly somebody not in a posi
tion to reply." This had reference
to the bandmaster whom the ad
miral had taken to task as an in
competent music director.
