TN ' his residential proclamation setting aside February
J. 19, 1795, as a "day of public thanksgiving and prayer'
George Washington, after reciting "the blessings which the
country enjoyed, besought the; "Author of these blessings"
among- other things i
"to preserve us from the arrogance of prosperity."
How could there have been arrogance of prosperity in
1795 ? People were poor, money was" hard to get, creditors
pressed hard on debtors, farm produce found scant market,
goods were scarce and high fa-price. Think too what "mod
ern conveniences, they lacked : no running water, no bath
rooms, no air mail, :no radios, shredded wheat or disease
germs, no county agents, no railroads, no stock market. Yet
George Washington prayed" the "Great Buler of Nations"
that they might be- preserved from the arrogance of pros

people strutted a "new economic era", talked about con
trolled prosperity and a; continuing abundance of wealth.
And when "the financial exhaustion -came the resulting ugly
mood was - but further evidence i)f an overbearing arro
gance. Some one else was at "fault the government, the
money power, the Almighty that this delusion of riches
should come to an end. - A '
v Americans 'have fed so long on a super-abundance of
temporal blessings that they rebel when adversity comes.
Prosperity has made them arrogant. Pharisee-like, at
Thanksgiving time they thank God they are not as poor as
the people of Europe and Asia; George Washington himself
started the attitude in this very proclamation when he
wrote: -" - j. -
, "When wo review the calamities which afflict ao many na
tions, the nresent condition of -the United States affords much

: matter of consolation sad satisfaction."
Some presidents have almost gone : so far as to con
gratulate God on having such a promised land for such a
favored people i as the Americans, who "might receive the
special bounties from His hand; :
On this Thanksgiving Day, 1930, we might pray for
less 'arrogance of prosperity",. for 5 greater, honesty, for
less phariseeism in scorning other nations and -other cul
tures, for greater contentment, for lessof the corroding
greed for possessions. Much we have to be thankful for even
in times of financial stress; and there are many virtues the
lack of which should humble us as rwe spend a portion of
this day in rigid self -analysis. : I 5
uWhere Socialism Ends ;
THE Oregon Journal having waged a gallant battle
against ! the power trust and claimed a great victory
f riivMino rtnrinrs with fTarpv- and Warlan nvpr reductions
in light rates, now seeks a new dragon to slay and points
its editorial spear at the iniquitous telephone trust. More
than that it seeks reductions in railroad rates because of
the failure of banks in the agricultural midwest and be
cause Medford pear-growers have to buck $ stiff freight
rates on their fruit. ' '
There is no truer friend of the people in sooth than the
Oregon Journal. But it might be pertinent to iifquirfe what
reductions the Journal has made in its advertising rates
because ' of the distress of the Portland merchants. The
Journal has built up a wonderful property out of its surplus
earnings. An investment of a few thousand f dollars has
enjoys as much of a monopoly in its field as the railroads
in hauling freight and passengers. Its most conspicuous
'public service seems to be in attacking the earnings of oth-
i frusta ntirf' mriTinrmliA
Socialism isn't like charity it doesn't begin "at home."
"Nothing but the Truth
A LONDON judge said the other day that if people would
obey the ninth commandment the courts wouldn't have
much business to tend to. Because there are so many liars
the courts are kept busy trying to figure out which witness
lied the least. This judge said the women were worse . per?
jurers than the men, and as he is a bachelor, he ought to
De unprejucucea. ; , i
This judge remarked:'. .
t "Perjury can never he more rife than it Is now. It Is commit- :
ted in some decree la most of the civil sad criminal cases be
fore the courts. The most self-possessed perjurers are murd
erers, but - nothing eaa . exceed the audacious reliance upon
- their sex which is so frequently displayed -by women. If per
jury could be stopped, trials ta a Urge majority of all kinds of,
eases would be Incredibly short.
. Most every judge would express himself the same way.
A person's veracity seems to fade when he goes on the wit
ness stand. He will lie without stint to bolster his case or
shield himself or a friend. If the psychologists want to do
something to benefit humanity and establish justice they
ought to invent a genuine lie detector that may be used
in law-courts. . i-
The great scandal of prohibition has Just been discovered by
the Medford Mail-Tribune. This crest home newspaper of southern
Oregon, which is editorially Quite as dry as The . Statesman we
mean quite aa : non-alcoholic proclaims in a long , editorial liber
ally srin-kled with caps that the state ought to repeat the law
proscribing liqaor in case of illness. Whether thla is to help the
doctors, the druggists or the patients Isn't quite dear; but It
OUGHT TO EE DONE, says the Mail-Trtb: This law may be a bit of
excess baggage In the prohibition army; but If we read the battle
signs right, the front line trenches are drawn up ever the 18th

ker. We hope the Mail-Tribune Isn't confusing target practice with

It Is evident that some careless
writer at some time copied Che-
Baeket or Chemeket where It
should bare been Chemawah.
It will be noted from th above
that there were at least three
ways to spell Chemsws. The oth
er two were Chemsway and Che
mawah; the last the way the ter
ritorial house of representatives
voted to have it spelled In giving
Salem her new old name. Will
the students down at the Chema

some one of them can enlighten
the people of Salem on the ques
tion of the meaning of the name,
