Holman Broadside Against
Hoss one of Notable
(Continued from svs 1)
The People, and the honorable
secretary of state was shown to
be worse meeting-raisser than
the governor.
Mr. Hoss kept a very wise si
lence most ot the week but he was
visibly moved by the sallies of
his cross-hall neighbor.
Both men are completely un

The. Next Term and all the
bickerings and fightings is but a
mutual prelude to an Impending
announcement that the treasurer
ot Oregon and the secretary of
state both do choose to run.
It All Lead; I p
To Ballot Battle
Politically aware people want
to know whether the Bull Frog
party headed by the recuperating
Julius will seek to clear up the
Agean stables by the ouster of
Mr. Hoss at the ballot boxes next
year. There is no question Mr
Holman would like it. Opposition
quickens the state treasurer but
it bothers him, too, and things
would be smoother instead of
having a permanent 2 to 1 vote
on the board of control to force
3 to 0 votes readly forthcoming
To date no opponent to Hoss has
been stalked in front of the po
litical grandstand. Henry Hansen,
the $0,000 budg t director and
political advisor beyond price and
compare, says emphatically no to
rumor that the King of the Bull
frogs, the governor himself, will
send some candidate in to do
battle with the skinny secretary.
In fact Hansen indicates that

Probably the largest ' financial
saving under the Governor Meier
administration resulted from the
repeal of the one-mill market
road tax by the 1931 legislature.
This saving will aggregate ap
proximately $1,125,000 a year.

Wife and Hother Reading the Morning Paper
A few of the reasons why the morn
ing papers are the most complete
and best and' meet the full needs of
the home and office:
News completed for the day trials, hearings, convention
sessions are not "left in the air."
First in report of city council, neighborhood clubs, board
of education and other official and civic bodies in things
that touch the life and pocketbook of people and tax
payers. thirst in all sports supremacy in this field, increasing with
night baseball, boxing, wrestling, horse shows and other
athletic events. i
First in cultural news theatre, music recitals, lectures.
First in social news which is largely in the afternoon and
First in lodge news lodges meet in the evening.
Nearly all community meetings are in tKe late afternoon
or evening churches, directors meetings (after business
hours), promotion and other gatherings.
Coast baseball and completed Portland markets.
Most important business transactions are announced 4 'at:
the close of the market."
Market supremacy prices of eggs, butter and other prod
ucts are announced in ' the afternoon, effective for tho
opening of trade the following morning. j
ITEae E3i?imuimg Paipei?, TUnece-
What Constitutes a "Day"?
Eveninsr papers often refer to their ability to publish "Today'a
News Today." Tho active "day" ii from 12 noon to 12 mid
night. More news occurs in that section than in any other
portion of the 24-hour period. The morning: paper Is he only,
paper that can thoroughly cover the occurrences within that
more active time. So that "Today's News Today" is really the
province of the MORNING paper.
The morning paper has more time, to work up and prepare orig
inal news stories and presents a full day and night report to
the reader far better systematized: Both sides of a story are
given fair treatment and all stories and items can be graded
and given their relative values. . .
A morning paper has better opportunity to be fair, constructive;
judicial and balanced. Its comment can be timely for theday;
but at the same time can be well considered. '

New York Department Stores
Shift to Morning Papers!
More Advertising Used in Morning This Year Than
Last While Afternoon Linage Shows Sharp Decrease
Macy and Wanamaker Vie for First Place in Morn
ing Editions.
(From New York "Reailig", Sept. 13. 1031)
During August of this year, according to figures' com
piled by the Advertising Record Co., 15 metropolitan
retailers used 167,277 lines in morning papers to draw
attention to their furniture and floor covering sales.
This represents a slight increase over last year for a
similar period but not sufficient to offset the decrease
in afternoon advertising which for this year was
183,150 compared with last year's 226,774. . . .
Abraham and Straus made the biggest jump in morn
ing linage going from 6,092 to 14,285 this year. In
the afternoon papers this store dropped from 2265
to 11, 242.
All of the stores save Wanamaker's, Loeser's and
Lord & Taylor's increased their morning linage over
last year, while the afternoon papers carried increas
es only for Altaian's, Gimbel's, Hearn's and Stern's.
