Our Disappearing Forest
mma oTYionf marl in a letter to the press of Gif ford
ff la m Ir J DMvvuvu - - , . .....
A Pinchot, chief exponent in this country of forest con
nervation: "Our forests are disappearing at a rate that in
volves most serious clanger to tne iuiure pruayj
country . . . Little or nothing that counts U being done about
And he says that out of 822,000,000 acres of virgin for
est only about one-eighth remains; half of the remaining
ighth being held by the government; the rest is being cut
or burned with terrific speed and there is nowhere in the
world anything like a sufficient supply of the kinds of tim
ber we use to take the place of what we have destroyed
What to do? Government control of cutting is advo
cated. Major George P. Ahern established the Philippine
forest service; organized the protection and utilization of
40,000,000 acres of public timberlands, and not only laid the
basis of a perpetual succession of timber crops, but earned
cash to pay the expenses of administration, the upkeep of
the Philippine forest school which he founded, and $4,000,
000 to boot for the public treasury.
Mr. Pinchot says the axe carelessly used is the mother
of fires, and until the axe is controlled there can be no solu-
tion of the fire problem, or of that of forest devastation
And Mr. Pinchot says: "Either we must control the
axe on the privately owned lands, or the forests that are left
will follow the road of those gone already"
And, as in the forests under government control, under
E roper regulations all our forests will "produce larger and
irger crops of timber as time goes on."
ITiere are arguments as to methods. Most of the states
iWill demand control within their own boundaries. But the
fact remains that the question of proper forest preservation
In this country is a great and pressing one.
The Master Is Wrong
COMMENTING on the report that Grange Master Goss
oyer there is against any more federal irrigation pro
jects because he is for the farmer who is here rather than
for the one who might come, the Yakima Republic says:
"If he is right, we all should stand on the principle. We
should stick up for the sagebrush in the country instead of
the farm home, and the old town as she is instead of one that
is bigger and better. The Goss line of reasoning goes di
rectly back to the proposition that when the Lord finished
with the earth He should not have set Adam and the lady
down upon it to play hob by
the effect that right now things are not in good shape and
fchould not be allowed or assisted to be better. Goss' funda-
. mental error is based on the
a reclamation project does for society is to produce more hay
and potatoes than he can eat."
The fact is, the master is wrong. Here comes a British
statistician with the information that "the world will come
to the end of its capacity to support its population in 2128."
That is only 200 -years
this generation over much; but how about the third genera
tion of the Ezra Meekersf However, if the United States
were self contained right now
walnuts and filberts and the other things we ought to grow
instead of buying in other countries, we would right now be
an importing nation in foodstuffs products
And we would be needing all the lands in cultivation that
cart be put in that condition, and as fast as this can be
brought about with an adherence to good business practices.
What Is a Filbert?
IN order to be informed, the editor of the Portland Tele
gram consulted convenient encyclopedias about filberts,
and found one authority saying "filberts are distinguished
from hazelnuts by the hitter's prolongation of the husk be
yond the point of the nut within," and another saying sim
ply, "See hazel nut."
Any filbert grower in the Willamette valley could give a
better definition than the erudite authorities consulted
And that is, the filbert is a hazel nut with a college edu
cation. And the filbert grown here is nearly as far removed
from the hazel nut as the present race horse has come from
his ancient ancestors the fossil remains of which Prof. Con
don found deep under the earth's surface in eastern Oregon's
sage brush plains.
The editor of the Telegram comes to the correct conclu
sion, however, as follows : "Oregon filberts and Oregon wal
nuts should add the final touch of luxury to every Oregon
Christmas dinner and nothing could be better to fill in the
crannies of the Christmas stocking."
- It may be added that there arcufilberts and filberts, just
as there are horses and skates, and that the best filberts
grown in the world are produced in our Willamette valley
orchards, which is also true of walnuts.
Paraphrasing the advertising slogan, "When there are
better ones, we will grow them."
Was It Worth It?
IT1HE recent national campaign cost in round numbers
X about ten million dollars
' - And the auestion is beiiur
The republicans are sitting pretty; they have all their
bills paid and two hundred thousand or so left with which to
open the next campaign, while all the democrats' have to do
is to rustle around and find some one to pay the million and
, a half in notes, representing their deficit It is suggested
that if they could make George N. Peek disgorge the half
million that he took to convert the farming states, this would
help that much. There was never a plainer case of obtain
ing money under f alee pretenses, though Mr. Peek probably
at least fooled himself as well as some others. - i ,
More than a million was spent "on the air," and equally
aa much on special trains. That was legitimate, though some
of the newspaper editors are disputing as to whether any
votes were changed
And there is other ample room for differences of opinion
regarding the wisdom a long

are cheaper to maintain than dirt and dust roads. In the

there would be very little direct tax money needed for the

In one year drivers licenses

everybody else who stops to think

How then to getthis relaxation?
The simplest way to achiere it Is
not by going to a sanitarium or
taking medicine, or eren exercise.
The simplest way is to quit con
