THE Oregonian ha3 reversed its attitude toward Rus
sian recognition and joins the growing number of those
papers and individuals who would have the United States
move toward a rapprochement with Russia. The Statesman
has been of this opinion for years, and is pleased to note
the change in opinion of the Portland paper which now
feeb that our continued aloofness "would indicate merely
stubbornness." It indicates more than that: obtuseness and
' T deadly indifference.
As The Oregonian says recognition would not mean
approval either of the means by which the soviet came into
power, nor of its economic theories. In the matter of debts
f -Russia has in the past indicated a willingness to enter into
conversation on the question, has some possible ground for
; roiinter-claims on account of our Archangel invasion, and
certainly is not in much worse
; other foreign debtors. . t. iV
It is folly tff think we can shut out communistic theor-
ies by the policy of non-recognition. Ideas are. not subject
4 to quarantine. Lack of diplomatic intercourse does not
insulate us from communistic infection.
The traditional policy of the United States was to rec
ognize de facto governments of other lands. That was our
practice with revolutionary governments In South America.
' It continued so until about the time of President Wilson
who set up the new doctrine of selective recognition, ref us-
1 ing to recognize the Huerta regime in Mexico because it
came to power with bloody hands. Recently Secretary
Stimson in the face of fresh revolutions in South America,
;. reverted to the old American policy of recognizing de facto
governments. The same policy should apply to Russia. The
' barriers in the way of repudiation of debt and confiscation
j of property of our nationals are proper subjects for
President Hoover should make a frank gesture in the
1 way of opening conversations looking to our recognition of
the United States of Soviet Russia.
Progress in 20 Years
ABERDEEN, Washington had a "communist" parade one
night last week when a crowd of 500 marched through
the business district and staged a demonstration before the
f city hall. They sang "red" songs, and demanded free rent,
food, gas, water and light for unemployed and fifty cents
! an hour minimum wage in relief work. The news story
: ended: "There was no disorder."
l. That is quite a change from 20 years ago when the
I. yV. W.'s were on a rampage in western Washington. A
i boatload of wobblies was shunted around between Seattle
- and Everett and several were
if memory serves us right. Hi Gill was mayor of Seattle
and R. H. Hartley of Everett. Down on Grays Harbor the
: wobblies fomented strikes and
selves deputized and ran the
man was killed. Soap box
. lumber mills and logging camps were subject to frequent
l: strikes and sabotage.
After 20 years the styles haven't changed much when
men are out of jobs and their families are hungry. It is
- worth noticing, however, that instead of running the "reds"
out of town by forcible means as was done then, leading
citizens of the towns labor to provide employment or relief.
Even when the radicals storm the city hall "there was no
. disorder". So it may be set down that the leading cits.
: have learned something in 20 years. That is progress.
There will need to be somo discrimination nsed in the drive for
, charity funds and in the application of the rule for state employes
..of ono day's pay a month. Individual circumstances vary greatly.
There may bo some on very low wages who are already doing more
? than their share to support relatives in need. Some may have large
. families while others drawing the same wages have no one depen-
dent on them. The governing committee which are collecting these
funds should be prepared to deal
with Individual cases. This community can easily raise all that is
needed for poor relief; and It can be done without imposing hard
ships on afly one. In fart if there is more of the voluntary spirit
' appealed to and less of the pressure method just as much money
will bo raised and it will be done with a hearty goodwill blessing

-By R. J. HENDRICKS
John Brown's son in Salem:
S S "a
(Continuing from yesterday:)
They fared on the best the coun
try afforded. Their free-state
friends aided them in every pos
sible way, as secretly aa they
could. Out after them were 200
U. S. troops, with occasional
skirmishes; but the regular sol
diers were wary of coming close.
A month passed; several were
killed, on both sides.
But now a new officer was
sent to take charge ot the U. S.
troops; with fresh instructions
from Washington. New England
was making trouble for congress,
and so were other free state sec
tions. The fierce little prairie
fire out in Kansas might flame
into a conflagration; oven a war.
The secretary of war sent Col.
Richard Brydges. This part of the
book makes a long story. Brydges
was the son of a woman who had
been a girlhood sweetheart of old
John Brown. She was a-widow
now, and was running an "under
ground railroad" at Cincinnati,
helping slaves across the line, to
freedom. She was a fiery aboli
tionist, and knew John Brown's
movements, and was aiding him.
A great story.
Col. Brydges asked "Captain
Brown", in a polite message, for
an Interview, expecting to deal
with an uncouth and ignorant
outlaw or a fanatic. He found a
Christian gentleman and lealot.
who knew more of history and
the rules of warfare than he did.
John Brown had a letter from
the mother of CoL Brydges. He
handed it to the son to read. If
interested, you may read it, from
the book. The colonel told
Brown that it was his desire to
bring about a state of peace in
Kansas; that this was the wish
of his superiors at Washington.
They parted, each to consider the
matters over which they had
talked. Three days afterward they
met again. Quoting tho book:
"Behind these two horsemen
rode 'two more Salmon Brown
and the colonel's orderly. Toung
Brown was arrayed like unto his
father; he carried the heavy
rifle, with a Jaunty touch, that
seemed to match the solitary
eagle s feather worn in his
slouch hat a sly bit of Irony for
the benefit of the tightly, bright
ly buttoned orderly. But the or
aeriy and salmon were soon on
good terms; youth quickly makes
friends, and Uncle Sam's soldier
boy had a wholesome respect for
a man who was one of 40 to
hold at bay 200: and Salmon
assumed that the other must be
a brave lad or the colonel would
not have chosen him for this of
fice. . . They rode full 60 yards
behind their superiors, and as
Salmon chatted he balanced the
rifle with a single forefinger and

This question was asked ot the
colonel by John Brown. Brydges
knew him; he was the newly ap
pointed sheriff. The sheriff sa

avert any possible trouble that

sheriff aa they rode forward, 'by

Lecompton. Governor Geary, who
had recently been appointed, came
rorward and greeted Captain
Brown as one gentleman greets
another. . . Congress had wisely
relieved Shannon and put a more
diplomatic man in his place. , .
Personally, he confessed to Brown
that he sympathised with the
slave holder, but he was there to
act as governor ot tho whole peo
ple; . . . hoped that prosperity
would come to all. . . He (Brown)
smiled with a halt smile of sat
isfaction when Governor Geary
admitted that the Browns had
practically carried the state tor
freedom." (The demand of Gov
ernor Geary was that the Browns
should leave the territory. When
the conference had proceeded at
length, quoting the book, the

whereby Brown was to leave the
territory within 10 days; his men
were to disband and return to
their homes; amnesty was to be
granted for all past offenses; and
none but actual settlers who had
been in the territory three months
should be allowed to vote at fu
ture elections. This was put in
the form of a stipulation and duly
signed. . . Captain Brown and
Col. Brydges accepted Governor
Geory's hospitality for the night."
On his way back to his camp,
accompanied by CoL Brydges,
John Brown found his son Fred
mortally wounded shot from
ambush by Martin White, a
Methodist preacher. No arrest
was made, the sheriff making
the plea that "Rev." White did

concluded. Soon after. White was

Amusement Hungry Stranger
And His Quest for "Life
By D. H. Talmadge, Sage of Salem
One rainy morning during the '
past week I was draped over a
stool at the Peter Pan cafe, dis
cussing, innocently enough, a bit
of toast and a dish of coffee.
when a man on the adjoining
perch, whose face would have
been strikingly handsome had it
been attached to a horse, poked a
finger into my ribs.
"Say, brother," said he. "what
does a stranger do for amusement
in this town?"
"Give it up," said L "What does
"I'm asking you," said he.
"You can't be serious," said I.
"I am," said he.
"There are four theatres." said
I, "and there are sixty places
where a stranger may eat, and
there are taxicabs and poolrooms
and a bowling place, and there are
plenty of genial citizens who like
nothing better than to exchange
reminiscences of a past more or
less checkered, and what are you
looking for, anyway?"
"Life," said he hollowly.
That was all he wanted life!
And life means so much and so
many things! Perhaps he had
something specifle on his mind.
My nostrils caught a faint aroma
remindful of a certain specific for
tailing hair. But I mads no at

Familiarity, of course, breeds
contempt, which it shouldn't. And

elsewhere than in the localities
where we reside, which is an er

what he wishes to find. Salem is
little different In this respect
from most of other towns and cit
ies. To be sure, not all forms of
amusements are so pronounced in
making themselves apparent here
as in certain other places. But we
are th same humans. Much of
the seeming difference lies in the
fact that we cling more closely to
our self respect than some others

Job, who had whined a wish to
"get out into the world", what he
really meant by It He did not pre

same old humdrum, he guessed.
He wanted to see, and perhaps
get in touch with the bit- men and
vromen of the world. He craved to
feast his eyes on new and won
derful sights. H wanted to hear
new sounds, smell new smells, ex
perience new sensations. Some
thing like that, you know.
It waa all natural enough. I re
call that I suffered that way once
upon a time. I drifted from east to
west and from west to east, and
I dropped la now and then at
pieces where the lid was off and
was smiled upon by purveyors of
amusement, some of them not en

appearance ot Governor Meier on

occupied the press for some days
past, what would they have said?
How looked? What done?
For the press had been a3 un
happy as the police at not finding
Tony's "broad." They had not
even learned her name. For Tony,
although Fanchon had not real
ized It at the time, had been rath-
in this life, and whon we do at

satisfaction than might have been
attained at a lesser cost and far
more pleasurably, viewed from
that vantage nolnt sometime re.

Happy the mind that has realized

I have a vague recollection ot
reading something long ago to the
effect that tho entire scheme of
creation Is embraced in anv nn
of its simpler forms. I cannot say

Spencer now and then with Dia
mond Dick and the two Dumas
and Madam Dudevant and Cap
tain Mayne Raid, to mention only
a few of them, at that blissful
period. A sweet mess!
I gave little heed to the state
ment at the time. I did not under.
stand it, nor particularly care to
unaersiana it. it may have meant
that life and its nleasurea. to tha
full extent of our capacity for ex
perience, is to be found within
reach of our present vision, that
everything that is anywhere is
within reach of our present vi
sion, that everything that is any
where is within our reach where-
ever we may be, and the pursuit
or pleasure or happiness across
vast spaces of earth is largely due
tj the urging of delusion and ter
minates ia the sadness of disap
pointment. Should I chance to again en
counter the man of the equine
countenance I shall ask him but
no, I shall ask him nothing.

Instantly, in a moment of stunned
amazement, the most beautiful
woman she had ever seen. Sha
carried more than SO years like a
banner. She was tall and alender.
She had great blue eves and a
clear pallor and a sweet curved
