Forest Grove, because of its predicament over its light
plant, is one of the few cities in Oregon which will have high
er tar rates in 1932 than, in 1931.
What does this prove ? Nothing, except that all that glit
ters Is not gold standard; and that while some cities succeed
well'with their municipal light plants, others have difficul
ties. Forest Grove will probably see the thing through and
after suffering high rates for sometime get their indebted
ness reduced enough, to enable them to cut their rates. In
the meantime their chief satisfaction must come in fighting
the octopus and voting for the Joseph platform. '
The Cheerful Giver
DIVERGENT views are taken on the levy of a day's pay
from employes of all state offices and institutions under
the ukase of the governor. The Klamath Falls Herald , com
mends the generous instincts of the professors at Eugene
and ConralUs. The Corvallis Gazette-Times however looks
upon the levy as an autocratic draft and says:
"It teems to us that the plan to force teachers at O. S. C. -i
and the U. of O. to disgorge one daya par. every month for fire
months smacks too much of autocracy. Moreover, it is a totally
. unfair proposition. For instance, we know a teacher at O. S. C.
' who is supporting- not only his own family, but bis father, moth
er and an invalid sister. It wonld seem to os that be la already; -;
doing bis bit to aid unemployment. We know of other eases
J aim flatly situated. This sentence- served on the teachers means
that they will subscribe more to unemployment relief than the
merchant, manufacture or other business or professional man.
What lawyer is going to subscribe $S for unemployment re
lief? What doctor is going to do so? Maybe they would if there ,
was some way for the governor to ?ut the screws ou them
' tor peuucai effect. The whole thing amacKa too mucn or Kuaaiau
cxarlm. The college baa always been a good source of Red Cross
: memberships and this hlghwaymanshlp threatened to disturb
j the annual drive. Chairman. Tundt got in touch with General
Rllea who has charge of the matter for the governor, and he
very graciously stated that Red Cross receipts would bo taken
in lieu, of money as ovidence that the teachers had done their
forced duty. That will relieve the local Red Cross drive, but not
the teachers. . , " , - :
j " Those in reasonable security of position ought to be and
for the most part are willing to contribute without pressure;
but there should be a method of exempting those who are al
ready carrying a full load.
With congress about to convene- the professional educationists
are bringing up the old gag about a secretary of education in the
president's cabinet. Aren't the) schools from kindergarten to univer
sity absorbing about enough T)t the public revenues at the present
time without the additional expense of a full executive department?
Education Is primarily a state function; and a bureau at Washing
ton is all that is needed to collate the national statistics and issue
monographs on educational subjects. The last foray of federal ex
perts into this state cost SIM and stirred up enough friction to
run the state for a decade. A federal department could hardly do
more damage than the academic theorists who exported higher educa
tion In this state. . - v?

Salmon Brown la Salom:
Much local interest has boon
aroused by tho aeries in this cot

cerning tho taet that Salmon
Brown, oon of "Oaawatomle
Brown," was, prior to and daring
the- nineties, a resident of saiem
and showing how largo a part Sal

The first phono message to tho

who wished to sf tho writer

to Salem from Oaawatomle, Kan
8no said Osawatomlo was not
on tho prairie, but in a wooded
district, and that its name came
from tho taet that It was located
on or near tho Osage and Potawa-
tomlo rivers. She added .that
there was mo place named Browns
ville near there. And she spoko ot
tho John Brown monument, erect.
od 187T in Osawatomlo.
Tho Osago and Potawatomie
Indian tribes gave tho names to
tho two rivers. Tho writer did not
say Osawatomlo was on the
prairies. He said tho Browne
took claims on the raw prairioa.
Their claims joined, and tho set
tlement was then called Browns
ville, because all the settlers were
Browns. After their buildings
were burned and their personal
property stolen or driven away,
they did not resume their resi
dences there, and tho name
Brownsville did not persist, Kan
sas hat no postofflco ot that
There is also in Osawatomlo a
John Brown nark. Tho lady told
th writer that the John Brown
monument marks tho spot ot tho
battle. There was a skirmish
ther, August II. 1I5C. betwe
tho John Brown band and the TJ.

were killed on both aides. That
