IT is appointed to all men to die. Kings and bishops, lords
and yeomen, governors and artisans, one and all lie down
in the great democracy of death. Now the governor of Ore
gon has answered the command which none j may disobey.
With a suddenness that shocks the citizenry Governor Fat
, terson's . simple illness came to a fatal termination.
The universal expressions of sorrow which have come
' sincerely reflect deep personal feeling. For the "governor was
a kindly man, one whom power and position did not alienate
but rather endeared to the men and women whom he met.
Sathe first feeling that comes 'over those who have had per
sonal relationship with him is a sharp sense of personal loss.
Later comes the feeling of how great has been the public
. loss. Such a sequence of feeling is an admirable reflection
on the high personal esteem in which Mr. Patterson was ev
erywhere held. The state has'suffered, yes, but the individ
ual who knew the governor has suffered too.
There will be many tributes paid to I. L. Patterson. As
sociates of j years' standing will comment upon his life and
public service, which have covered an unusually long span of
- years. There are some things which are conspicuous about
his career as governor. One is his industry. Governor Patter
son worked at his jobHe labored early and lateVat the task
not of "breaking records' and winning fame, but of giving
Uregon a sensible and progressive administration. He was
steadily at his office save for
which took him out over the
answered many calls, too many we have thought, and for
too trivial an event.
Another valuable characteristic was his good sense.
Ha did not pose, he did not strain his talents, he did not
crave publicity, he did not agitate. Faced with problems es
sentially administrative in nature,-Mr. Patterson brought to
his work the plain bat rare quality of fine common sense, of
good. business judgment. The result shows in the condition
of the state's affairs. The entire machinery of the state gov
ernment has been running smoothly and efficiently and
economically. The yawning deficit which embarrassed the
state at his inauguration is now on the road to extinction.
He introduced centralized purchasing, a planned budget, put
the state penitentiary under the board of control along with
ether state institutions, fostered the flax industry, encourag
ed the legislation for a unified control of state higher insti
tutions, urged tax reforms to equalize burdens and supply
needed revenues. He held to sound finance in road building
even under heavy pressure. It was the response of the people
.of the state to his conservative, sound, earnest leadership
which made him invincible as a potential candidate for the
governorship in 1930. 1
- Reflect a little upon his administration: it has been ac
companied by no breath of scandal and no scent of graft in
any departments. Few have been the criticisms of his ap
pointees. Not a single one of the men he named to office has
gone wrong." Despite the financial condition of the state
treasury. Very substantial and permanent improvements
have been made at the various
state office building, the new buildings at the penitentiary
nd state hospital, the new tuberculosis hospital at The
vTDalles, the new normal school at La Grande, as well as new
buildings at other educational institutions. All show the type
of executive direction that builds permanently for the future.
A new picture will hang in that gallery for the governors
- of Oregon in the house and senate chambers of the capitoL
a picture that will be most distinguished for the manly beau
ty, strength of face and figure
. Fit and worthy is that portrait to hang among the state's
. greatlmen, for Mr. Patterson served the state as governor
witn unstinted devotion, with
- age, .with record-untarnished. " j
The Enterprise Comes Back for More .
THE Oregon City Enterprise returns to the discussion of
advertising mohair by indicting The Statesman for high
treason to the good cause of western products because we
. refuse to approve of a money-spending advertising campaign
on mohair in an effort to double the present price. That 6f
course is merely begging the question, and The Enterprise
- has been singularly unconvincing as to just how mohair ad
, vertising will prove profitable. -
If advertising mohair can double the price we suggest
that the learned editor of the Enterprise turn his hand to
hops. This important "Oregon crop is in worse plight than
mohair. Suppose we try to reach the gen. public through the
eat. eve post with "Buy a, hop today; "Ere'g your p;"
"Everyone take a hop before breakfast" If the advertising
, campaign will save mohair, why won't It save hopsT Prob
ably for the same reason that accordinjr to the mathematics
of the Enterprise the campaign of the wool growers in nation
al advertising has resulted in cutting the price of wool in two.
We have profound faith in advertising, but it has its
limitations. It will not make people ride in street cars, wear
- ..skirts (or fabrics) that are passe, or eat more toast in order
to rescue. the wheat grower from financial disaster
George A. Vrjiite, Major General
THE Statesman extends its congratulations to George A.
White on his promotion to the rank of Major-General,
and his assignment to the command of the 41st division.
The rank and the new office come as the fruit of long and
arduous labor in the regular army and in the national guard
service. General White has been singularly successful in his
duties as army officer, and carries into his work the fine
balance of judgment-gained through his pre-army career in
newspaper work. . . - .
His past record of achievement justifies' the prediction
that General White will make his new office conspicuous" for
" efficient administration.

bert CT. Hering, among foremost
writers on religious subjects. In
a current contribution to a Sunday
school magazine, says: "The 20th
century brought to the front the
realization that Jesus was right.
that the child belongs 'in the
midst, and aot on th edge of
public attention. This emphasis
shows in many ways.
"First, child health. W are
aroused to the fact that Infant
mortality is a question of public
concern. We are no longer content
to say, when a child dies, 'God
took the child.' We are beginning
to lace the fact that it wasn't God
at alL who took the child, but
that it was bad milk, and that bad
milk Is a social sin. It Is the bus
iness "of society to see that there
is no bad milk. A milk producer
who keeps dirty barns and tuber
cular cows is a murderer. A milk
distributor who peddles milk from
dirty cans on hot days In the ten
ements is worse than a gunman.
Society Is finding Its way ot deal
ing with him, and, as a result. In
fant mortality has been greatly re
duced. "There is a world of new mor
ality in the 'swat the fly crusade.
Flies kill children. The child can
not be put 'in the midst' if flies
are in the midst. So Christian civ
ilization wageswar on the fly.
Thus do morality and religion ex
pand their borders, and enlarge
their bounds. The medical profes
sion, and the social workers, hare
been instrumental in establishing
children's clinics. Physicians and
nurses start with the mothers be
fore their children are born, and
aire them adxice, pre-natal, child
care, child feeding.
Second, education. Education
has been born again In this cen
tury. The work ot such men as
John Dewey has let in a flood of
light upon the whole philosophy
of education. If you doubt it. read
Dickens Nicholas Nlckleby and
Dombey and Son. Cartoons, If you
please, of the schools of the 19th
century, but oftentimes cartoons
tell more truth than do photo
graphs. Furthermore, the older
schools were untouched by any
knowledge of psychology. Teach
ers were not students of the mind
of the child. They were Intent up
on crowding down an adult-pat
tern upon a helpless chud; the
new educators are Intent upon af
fording th child a chance to de
velop normally and naturally.
Furthermore, the older education
was only in the slightest degree a
preparation for life. The child was
to be crammed tan with a variety
of things, which, while undoubt
edly Interesting, were but remote
ly related to the life which he
would live. Today's teacher knows
that the child must earn a liTinx.
and. that bis education must pre
pare him to make an intelligent

ers knows that th chUd is endow
