Business too has left deep footprints in; the news and
' advertising columns of The Statesruan. Stores and factories
have come; many have gone. Agriculture has developed and
crops have been diversified. Prices have isen and fallen and
risen again. Buildings have gone up, served their day, and
been torn down. Roads have come, and wires, and now the
winged words of the radio: all have had their story told.
Against the dark background of war. and politics and
the drab backdrop of business has come the gayer scene:
balls and parties, celebrations, picnics, graduations, assemb
lies, concertsall the manifold events which make the days
brighter and happier. I l l . v
. The intimate details of individuals have not passed un
noticed. The Statesman has told of birth and marriage and
death, his told of fame won or honor j lost, i 'The moving
finger writes," then moves on to tell with accuracy the next
events that fall within its horizon. I . f i j
A newspaper is not only a chronicle, a printed record
of the passing scene. It does not simply sit at a point of
vantage and sketch faithfully the stream of passing events
below. The newspaper should also be in the stream, seeking
to direct its current into channels of .greater usefulness.
This has been one of the achievements of! The Statesman
in the 80 years past. It has. teen a guide and molder of
opinion. In its earlier days The Statesman exercised a pow
erful influence in the political development of the state. In
later years it has wielded great influence; in encouraging
' and directing the economic expansion of the community and
the state. Great men have edited it, and they have left the
Impress of their minds in the enduring form of the political
and economic design of this commonwealth.
. Mere survival, mere ability to endure is of vsmall conse
quence unless it is accompanied by continuing accomplish
ment. The past prestige of The Statesman is of scant avail
unless those into whose hands it falls maintain the stand
ards and enlarge the achievements. That indeed is the re
sponsibility which the present proprietors keenly feel. The
Statesman is not merely a means of livelihood or of employ
ment. It is an institution. We who today are charged with
directing its destinies feel a 'genuine sensei of stewardship.
Successors we are of men of vigor and Vision who built up
the paper and through it built up the state. The fine history
of The Statesman comes therefore as a challenge to us of
the present to maintain its strength, to increase its service,
to refine its character and to add to its influence. Time will
write the ' verdict of .our success, but we hope to measure
u.-to our task that The Statesman may go forward with
mounting strength to the happy celebration of many , more
anniversaries. I '

From Other Papers
Governor Meier this week de
livered organized labor a blow be-
low the belt which is not likely I
to be forgotten for some time. His
anmmir. nn.A,.l T it ru. I
gerald, labor member of the in
dustrial accident commission, who
has served in that position for the
- . j i
past lour years, has created a
storm of protest In the ranks of
organized labor. i i
Mr. Fitzgerald was endorsed for
reappointment, by the , Oregon
State " Federation of Labor, the
Pm-ti.n i.i ,, I
and a large number of individual
organizations. The protest against
Fitzgerald's removal Is not so
much on account of the man whom
tne governor placed' In his: posi-
tlon bat because of the fact that
it was so evidently a political move
and without other justification.
There was no charge of Ineffi
ciency, neglect of duty or: any
thing of the kind against Mr.
r ltzgeraid.
The governor removed all three
members of the commission to be
effective Anril 1. This has
been done by any governor before
since the compensation law has
been in effect, it has always been
deemed advisable to retain at
least one member of the commis
sion who was familiar with the
work. .. .. j
One prominent member of or.
ganlzed labor stated that the ae
non or we governor was "a direct
slap at organised labor" and that
because of the fact that A. W. "Pted. that would evea dent

Rated as a high class "business
executive.- the governor, in order
to pay. political debts, has dis
charged three executives in charge
of one of the state's most vital
departments; and has turned the
work over to three men who, so

"It's all Barbara's fault-Dave"
explained Talbot, , whose portly

sat, down beside Sally with a fat

occupied the chair that his friend

guttered In the reflected light of

ment there came a long, walling
chord, muted and tremulous.
Then, slurring down half a scale,
the strange, barbaric- notes began
to blend into familiar music, slow,
inf ectuous, filled with minor dis
sonances and grace notes. Ger
ry's doeskin shoe began to pat
time as the sobbing refrain of the
"St Louis Blues" began to vibrate
through the still evening air.
A Glimpse of Sansbine
"The harmonica," explained
Talbot politely, '"Is Gerry's only
accomplishment. When he is a lit
tle confused about anything, he
always tootles ! that horrible
thing." , ;
Sally's joyous laughter caused
Dave to stare at her. He had not
known that she could laugh like
that. Joan, too, seemed suddenly
to have laid aside all her cares
and worries and was enjoying her
self thoroughly, l
"What's he confused about
now?' Joan asked Talbot.
"You never know," shrugged
Talbot. "Perhaps it's because no
one has made him sign a check
for halt an honr or so. " Perhaps
it's because he's in a new place
without his big white yacht in the
background. Perhaps , be only
needs a drink." . . i '
Gerry cocked a threatening eye
at Talbot over the top of the
mouth organ, but the rhythm ' of
the blues went on unbroaken. On
ly Barbara seemed unapprecla
tlve. she sat, still and silent. In
a chair at the edge of the porch,
her large dark eyes resting specu
latively upon Dare's profile.
"Has David been flirting with
you. Miss Sally?" asked Talbot
solicitously, drawing his ' chair
close to hers. ; "He's a great trial
to me. ' He behaves outrageously
whenever I'm not with him. My
spare time is completely taken
up in going around after him, apo
logizing for his conduct."
"Hesieen fighting again," an
nounced Barbara, coldly. "His
nose is out of shape and -bis ear
looks as though someone - had
tried to bite it off." -
Talbot leaned forward and
stared at Dave appraisingly.
"So he has,'" he . marveled;
"My eyes have been so full of oth
er things X haven't had time to
inspect, him. Yes, he looks like
something left oyer In a speakeasy
after a busy Saturday night. If
Gerry would only lay off ; that
caterwauling, perhaps Dave would
tell us where the body is buried."

"No, you goat," snapped Dave,
