THE American Medical Association is meeting in Portland.
This body is the national organizationoj" the members of
the medical profession. Its powers of excommunication and
anathema are paralleled only in ecclesia. When the A. M. A.
speaks, doctors snap to attention and legislatures likewise.
The association is sincerely devoted to the. scientific conquest
of disease and amelioration of pain. It has proven a courage
ous foof quackery, of fake nostrums, of lying medics, and
of foolish contraptjons like health belts and boxes.
; Because of its membership and its leadership the gen
eral public is interested in its deliberations. Unfortunately
the public cannot follow intelligenty the ports of the pro
ceedings, especially those dealing with special diseases and
their treatments. Doctors speak in scientific terminology,
just like they write their prescriptions in Latin, so the public
can be kept ignorant. It is important not to spread misinfor
mation, especially that which would fan the hopes of victims
of diseases still regarded as incurable. However, the better
course might be to make the news reports complete and
clear so correct information might be disseminated.
- The public is interested in a number! of things which
perhaps the medical association will not touch upon. Here
are somethings which are pertinent:
How may the costs of obstetrical cases and of operations,
and of hospitalization be kept within the; reach of self-respecting;
families of moderate means ? , "
j What real values are there to manipulative therapy and
why do not regular schools of medicine embrace the valuable
portions of such practice in their courses of study?
" j How may the excessive, use of drugsf in treatment be
done away with and the public weaned away from depend
ence on "medicine"? - j
j How may ancient inhibitions be modified to meet mod
ern conditions, specifically, giving scientific information on
Uffi ui tuuuyi, uiiciugcufc ouu uvmuiauie cxupiujruicub ui outw

j 1 Some of these may be touched upon. I If they are, they
will probably be handled in a strictly "professional" manner.
It would be a good thing for the doctors j if some of them
could be taken up in a rough and tumble! open forum with
non-medics contributing to the dicussion. '

THE Japanese cabinet, headed by Baron Tanaka, has been
overthrown, and a new cabinet inducted into office The
new premier is a commoner, Yuko Hamagucbi, the third un
titled prime minister iu Japan's history. Japan's internal pol
itics has been troubled for some little timej The principal dif
ficulty has been between the old military party and the new
er, more liberal party; The old Japan leaders favored a
firm hand" in China and Manchuria. It nearly meant war
after the Tien-tsin incident when Chinese nationalists fired
on Japanese soldiers. The Tanaka government backed up
Chang Tso-lin, the Manchurian war-lord, and wanted a strong
policy in Manchurian politics. The opposing group wanted

BITS for BREAKFAST
By R. J. HENDRICKS
Why not Oregon walnuts?
A friend phoned-the Bits man
calling attention to an advertise
ment of the Western. Dairy Pro
ducts company In the newspapers.
n which last week's special was
Victoria Nut Ice cream; "fresh
California walnuts and toasted al
monds," combined with "vanilla
Sunfreeze' and flavored with - a
touch of delicious chocolate."
That sounded good but why

telephoned wanted to know. Why
California walnuts, when Oregon
walnut are better and our high
quality product, like the grafted
Franquetes from the Skyline or
chard, sell 5 cents a pound higher
in the New York market than the
budded California nuts, the best
grown in California?
The why pf it Is that likely the
man who wrote the copy for the
advertisement was unaware of the
superiority . ot the Oregon wal
nuts; and besides he was writing
copy for a wide territory all
over the coast and besides again

j What - has he found? Many
things. He -believes the bulk of
the walnut acreage of the United
States will be in the Willamette
valley. Why? The Statesman pub
lished and republished an inter
view with mm, weeks ago, when
he first arrived here on his vaca
tlon trip. The main reason is that
walnut trees In California must
have irrigation. And there is not
enough irrigation water. The wa
ter level In the artesian wells ot
California has. gone down 10 feet
1 and it Is still going down.
!. . V
t Walnut trees In the Willam
ette vaUey do not require irriga
tion. They send their-deep roots
down after the water. The surface
moisture can be conserved by con
stant cultivation. That is what Is
done on Skyline. Mr. Noble does
not kow all about walnut grow-
from ' California s book and go

the language of the challenged
