More Fool Legislation
fTlHE Albany Democrat-Herald is discovering the difficul
1 ties the creamery operators of the state going to be

err oneratorTof the stat? jammed through this butter bffl
J7partof a sUsna of newliiper f -pUff, and now the prob
lem is to make the law work. v r.
This law requires the creamery man to grade or score
his butter in the plant where rthurned, although this js a
wry pTScular job for which few in the state are qualified.
As thSmocrat-Herald remarks: rper wiU differ con-
MmMv in tMtinff the same chunung . a no Aiunny
goes on to discuss the subject, as follows: j

"This la the reason way many creamery operators at a . meet
lar receatly held at Corralll. expressed dissatisfaction with the
law It is rumored that their opposition may be expressed in a
test case to throw the Uw Into the court tar a decision as to
Its eonstltationality. ! '
"Back of the opposition of the creamery nen Is a feeling
that they wera double-erossed and Unored to their attempts to
" helo formulate, the measure when It was under onslderatlon In
tha legislature. It is only fair to the creamery orators to say
that they would be glad to cooperate in aUadardixta their
products aa It faciUtate.the sale-of oed butUr at hlsher

"' , pUced "at the mercy of olflciala. . 1
"To niaka 91 score gutter, sweet, clean -cream is needed.
? Most country creameries cannot obtain enough sweet cream to
churn la segregated lots without extra manufacturing expense.'
f To encourage dairymen to proride sweet cream, they could
pay a bonus for Its production. ut the fact stressed by
i creamery operators is that the Portland market does not at the
present time absorb all of the 12 score butter produced at tho
' higher price it should bring. j
"The Portland market Is reputed to ie a low-grade butter
market where large purchasers can obtain a Terr good quality
of butter to merchandise at comparatively low prices. If there
were a dependable market In Portland for top-notch butter of
the 2 score grade, it would ba possible for creamery operators
to pay the premium for sweet cream to make it worth while
for farmera to produce it, s It is much ot this kind of butter
goes to San Francisco or Los Angeles where there is a more
dependable market for high-class tatter. - ' .
This seems to be Just another case of trying to cure by law
..something that has developed as the results of, wrong prac
tices in merchandising." ' : ; " 1
Wages and Prices
i ' :
i -
'Thus increased wages, or shorter hours, or both, are, need-.
'Cuts In prices should bo welcomed, not only with- an open
hand, but with an open pocket book.
- Such is "the economic philosophy of the Portland News
Telegram: higher wages and lower prices.
Yet what is a price but the sum of all the labor costs
which have been frozen into the article T And ihow may you
put deeply into prices without soon cutting Into wages?
True, modern machinery has through increased production
both lowered costs and given increased wages but there are
limits to this process. We cannot indefinitely keep our cake
t and eat it too. j
The price cuts which we are "enjoying bow represent
reduced money returns to some or all of the factors engaged
in producing the goods. Cheaper flour means less money for
the wheat grower. Cheaper tires mean lowered profits for
the tire maker. Where fluctuations are temporary no change
is made in the general level of wages ;"but where price move
ments are extreme .sooner or 'later they are reflected in
reduced wages. j:n
The great lack of economic balance at present is the
disparity between producers of raw materials and the fab
ricators thereof. The difference is ue solely to the in
creased labor costs which hold over from war times. Crude
. commodities are low, in price while finished articles are high
in price due to the persistence of wages, rents, services on
high plateaus. There can be no genuine prosperity until this
disparity ia wiped out either through a general lowering the
wage structure or an increase in the conimodities prices, or
both. . : - - - .;-.
. The News-Telegram is talkinsr talk whicli it thinks win
please its circulation when it decries wage cuts yet praises
.cuts in prices. It can no more hold wae levels hicrh and
price levels low than King Canute could succeed in staying

Not oncommon
ty colds occur
and often these
solds are com-
Dr. o. O. m plicated by ab-
ceased or Inflamed ears. These
children also snore a great deal
at night. There is a characteris
tic appearance of enlarged ade
noids in some children who hare
had no treatment, they appear
and act stupid because their hear
ing is impaired and consequently
pay little attention to tneir sur
roundings. Practically .all chil
dren with diseased adenoids are
benefited greatly by haying them
removed. Occasionally startling
results are obtained following
their removal, through tho im
provement in general health and
their ability to hear better.
Not Always Adenoid
There is a typo ; ot mouts
breather in whom one falls to
find enlarged adenoid growths as
tho cause. Xh these wo find ob
struction of the nasal passages
from a high, narrow palate, or in
others, aiju abnormality of tho
structures .of the nose as . crook
ed septum or enlarged turbinate
bones may be causing the obstruc
tion, in the former the palate
has a very high arch and the up
per Jaw Is narrow, causing a con
striction ot the breathing spacea
in the nose.
Frequently these children nave
had their tonsils and adenolda re-
pnoved without any relief ; from
month breathing, a more ration
al treatment would be to have
braces placed on. the teeth to
spread tho Jaw' thus creating more
space in the nose. . Those children
with abnormal structural -defects
of tne nasal passages cannot as a
rule be relieved to any extent un
til later in life, operations being
resorted to in early adult 'life.;
- Old. Argument ' .
Bow much influence thumb
sucking has in ' producing month
breathing is often open to argu
ment Such a habit should always
be avoided or corrected when pres
ent in order to prevent as much
as possible an abnormality of the
roof of the month. Thumb sock
ing does-not cause adenoids. Its
harm comes-through altering the
shape of the roof of the mouth.
No matter what tho oause may
be, any child which habitually
breathes-through its mouth should
have medical attention in. order to
determine the cause and to insti
tute treatment when indicated. ;

Joseph Gervais helped him' lo

were entertained by their neigh
bor, ; Gervais. They pitched their
tent in the GervSla melon patch,
and the Indian wife and slaves of
that pioneer settler gave them ev
ery hospitable attention.
The spring was 300 to 400 feet
west of the house: The water was
carried by the slaves over, the old
trail; up the steep bank from near
the river's edge. Their bare or
moccasined feet wore a trail so
deep and plain that lOO years of
time, with their annually falling
and decaying forest leaves, have
not obliterated It.

Gervais and' his wife and chil

their children had been gathered

The famous ; "wolf meeting"

a member of the committee. He
voted In tho affirmative, though
his name does not appear on the
monument. It should be there.
The town of Gervais was named
for lilm, though' his claim was
four miles or so from Its site. He
was a good neighbor to the early
missionaries; he was kind to the
early settlers; helpful to them in
many ways. .

' And this was the knowledge
that Mary Lou took into the new

at first, a blind, black panic
which urged her to escape, to run
away to the very ends of the
earth. But that she could not do:
she had committed herself to stay

Letters from

Editor Statesman: .-
It is evident to the writer that
a large proportion of the tax pay
ing public are making returns of
Income on the new state income
tax blanks that is not taxable,
due to Incomplete information
contained in Form 40 and the in
struction sheet accompanying
that form. Item 3 ot instructions
reads "Enter as Item 3 all Inter
est received, etc.", when as a mat
ter of law. no interest received In
1930 is taxable unless it was also
earned in 1930, and no Income of
any .kind accrued and earned pre
vious to 1930 should be included
in the return tor this or future
years unless the taxpayer keeps
his books on an ' accrual basis.
For Instance, It actual interest of
3120 was due - and received - on
February 1, 1930, the taxpayer
shout dreturn only 1-12 or 10 of
that sum, since only one month's
(January) Interest was earned in
1930, and If the ' payment was
made March 1, 1930,. only 2-12 or
320 should be returned. I ,
Similarly, if semi-annual ; inter
est was paid on February 1, 1930
only 1-8 of the ' amount received
should be . returned and if paid
March 1, only- 2-8 should be re
turned, i
Dividends received in 1930 are
not taxable and should not be re
turned unless they were also de
clared In 1930. i
I will ask you to kindly giro
the above facts te the public to
prevent the payment ot taxes in!
excess ot the amount legally due.
