I! ;TURT BROWN BARKER, vrho liasefth serving '."aa vice
! JLJ president ol the University of Oregon, is presenting
: statue of thepioneer mother to the university which will be
; " unveiletf onay 7th, It is the work of A. Phimster JProc
tor, and Is an artistic embodiment of nhe pioneer mother in
the sunset of her life, drinking in the beauty and peace of
the afterglow of her twijight days," The statue is commem
orativd of Dr. Barker' own mother, Elvira Brown Barker,
and hia grandmothers, Lucinda Cox Brown nd Christina
Henkle Barker. Where other statues have sought to preserve
the toil and struggle which the women of former days under-
'Went, the hardship of the trail and the loneliness of cabin
4 life, Dr. Barker seeks in this work to show, the pioneer znoth
er in an attitudeof peace, after the storms of life have broken
and passed im'yyykr-ixy i V'- : '-''
This seems to us a : very wholesome 'conception to pre
aerve. Why is it that the universal attitude of mind f those
of a riven beriod is to think that their parents and grandpar
ents had nouzht but strain and struggle? For hundreds of
women life in the Willamette valley in the early day was eas-
ler than in the country they left Here there was plenty of
wood and water, few winds, no lightning. Crops were easily
grown; and always produced in reasonable abundance. Win-
ters were mild and summers not scorcHing. Trading vessels
brought goods from eastern markets almost as easily and
auicklv as thev were transported to the midwest."'
The pioneer mother had her toils and her sorrows; but
v - they, are the heritage of motherhood in every, century. She
' also had her pleasures and her satisfactions. She watched
her children grow sturdy. She got inspiration from the Sab
bath church services. She enjoyed the quiltings and the vis
iting which made up much'ofNthe social life of the time. All
was not barren for her by any means, or hard and lonely.
We fancy there will be no statues erected to .honor the
mothers of today. Yet we are sure their strain and labor are
quite as severe as in days of the past Thousands of them,
working with meagre means, are toiHng to keep children in
achooL to nrovide wholesome and strength-giving meals on
scant substance, and to keep up the courage of the bread
winner of the household. They are silent sufferers, rarely
complaining, facing the world with a smile. Worry is etching
their faces. with wrinkles; but they toil on hoping for the
ultimate esjrfn ir of the load. !
.: Nor is the strain limited to those in "Poverty row'. It
tells even more among those who have been comfortably cir-
cumstanced but now by shifts of fortune find their resources

We think Lieut. Massle has not shown" the self-control
: which' his office in the navy should require, that he should
have scorned to touch :the youth of another race and color.
And we think his defense of "temporary.tosanity; is weak,--he
might better elect to stand just on "unwritten law since
