The Leap From the Frying Pan
Truth About the Ha wley Tariff j
PROBABLY no tariff measure ever enacted in American
history has been more lied about than the Hawley-Smoot
tariff. The democratic spellbinders are now damninsr it from
Maine to Texas and laying on it the burden of our woes. At
, the same time the democratic nominee as he travels from
place to place assures localities that their specific tariffs will
be preserved. What is the tariff but a compilation of local
femands? YY' i Y Y.
. This editor is not a high-tariff republican. In our opin
ion the change in our national status from a debtor to a cre
ditor nation called for alteration in our tariff policy. But
the democratic position on the tariff is now thoroughly hy
pocritical. In their-1928 platform they approved the prin
ciple of the protective tariff and Al Smith campaigned with
the definite assurance to wall street that high protection
would be. maintained.
. : When ; individual schedules were up for adoption the
democrats voted precisely as the interests of their districts
dictated. Thus we had Dill voting for a tariff on lumber,
Thomas of Oklahoma for a tariff on oil. Walsh of Montana
for a tariff on copper, Broussard of Louisiana for a tariff on
sugar. When the whole list is completed the democrats rage
with fury and brand the tariff measure as one of the deadly
sins. . .
, :Pres. Hoover urged a revision of the tariff in his first
message to congress with particular application to agricul
ture. Most of the tariff upping which was done was on ag
ricultural items. While numerous changes were made in in
dustrial items as well, the tariff was distinctly one for the
protection of agriculture.
The Hawley-Smoot tariff has been assailed as the high
est in our history, which is not true. The average rates of
duties, for the several tariff acts at the date of passage as
applied to imports for the preceding year were :
McKinley tariff 48.49
Dingley " 46.59
Payne " 40.83
' Fordney n 38.85
Hawley " .41.24
Thus the Hawley-Smoot tariff was lower than the ave
rage rates of the republican tariffs of the last 40 years.
At the time of its enactment the tariff act of 1930 show
ed a net decrease, weighted average, in four schedules of
SJ.7Jf. : and a net increase in 11 schedules of 7.41 ; or a
net increase for the act as a whole of only 2.39.
The average on all imports, free and dutiable, is about
16. or an increase of 32 over the act of 1922. Siich ave
rage was 23 under the McKinley act, 20.9 under the
Wilson (democratic) act, 25.8 under the Dingley act, and
19.3 under the Payne act
Now take the matter of change of items. In the 1929 tar
iff there were S3(fo dutiable items. Of these 890 were in
creased in the Hawley-Smoot act, 234 were decreased, and
2170 were left unchanged.
The percentage of imports admitted DUTY FREE un
der the Hawley-Smoot act is the largest with a single ex
ception in 40 years. The percentages are as follows, of the
items which come in free of duty:
McKinley tariff 52.4
Wilson " 49.4
- Dingley " 455
Payne n 525
Underwood n 6.3
Fordney " 63.8
Hawley " 66.0
We cite these fisrures. not to defend the tariff of 1930;
but to refute the false assertion made by democratic spokes
men who nreach low tariff and practice tariff high-jacking.
For example AFTER the Hawley-Smoot tariff was adopted,
those who really led the fleht for MORE protection on oil,
lumber and copper were DEMOCRATS. Democrat Henry B.
, Van Duzer of this state was lobbyist for the increase in the
lumber tariff; and he was ably backed up by daily editorials
in the DEMOCRATIC Portland Journal. Democrats or ax-
uona and Montana worked for the copper tariff. Democrats
fwri Olclnrmm and Texas worked to Dut across the oil
The republicans are at least honest in standing con
sktentlv for the nrincinle of the protective tariff.
v Tn a subsequent issue we will eive the facts, about how
the Hawley-Smoot tariff gives protection to Oregon agricul
tural products adequately FOR THE FIRST TIME in post-
war history. .. . -

the reason for his not doing so.

From a paper read by Mrs.' Dr. W. W. Baam before a recent
meeting of tho Ladle Auxiliary f tho Medical society.
On of th most Important sub
jects which Is before us today is I
tn matter oz tn penocie neaitn
Th periodic health examina
tion Is probably an outgrowth of
th anti-tuberculosis campaign,
and th ehild health and well-baby
work. Aa yon probably know, th
death rat from tuberculosis has
been lowered greatly In th past
25 years and thla haa been accom
plished entirely by early examin
ation and treatment: there haa
not been any great change in the
method of treatment Then work
began to be don on infanta and
school children and health de
partments established is our cit
ies and tn our schools. As a re
sult of ' thee campaign, th
death rat among infants, chil
dren and youths was markedly
lowered and thla resulted la aa
increase la th average span of
life brought about, yon under
stand, by saving th Uvea ot In
fanta and children who would
have otherwise djed and not by
Increasing th length of life of
persons who lived to bo 60 br so.
As w lowered th death rata from
tuberculosis and other disease of
childhood and youth; th death-
rate trout heart disease, cancer
and such maladies ot middle lif
and old age became correspond
ingly higher and brought mor to
our attention.
Thla emphasise th necessity
of the practice health xamlna
tion. W must do as much for our
middle-aged as we hav for our
