j Oregon Goes to School
AT the season of the year when youngsters are bursting
in the front door throwing the books in a corner and
'"'shouting that; school's over, their fathers and mothers and
' elder brothers and sisters are taking a turn at school. Most
all adult Oregon has been studying the book the past few
weeks; and taking an examination on what they have
learned. Then if they qualify and pay the necessary fee
they get a license to operate a motor vehicle. Tomorrow is
the last day of the "school" for renewal of licenses at the
50 cent fee.
It is quite an experience for folk who haven't answered
questions with pen and ink for forty years. The brain
doesn't click like it did back in the old schoolhouse when
, you were accustomed to the Friday spell-down or the term
test. You read the book and think you know all that is in
it; but when there is a sheet of white paper in front of
you with printed questions and writing spaces on it, you
feel sort of queer and your mind goes blank. Then you
gather your wits together and the test turns out to be not
so fearsome after all.
Bill Hammond of the secretary of state's office is the
state schoolmaster these days. Visit his examination room
and you will find the busiest place in Salem. Queues reach
, far down the hall. Mervand women are writing at little
f tables and taking eye tests to demonstrate their capacity
'. to drive motor cars with safety to themselves and the gen
eral public. Dairy men in blue striped overalls, bald-headed
clerks scratching the bald spot over some hard questions,
mothers with children sitting on their laps, young saplings
of "boys who drive bugs and motorcycles, wood-haulers, town
bankers, All taking the examination ; and serious about it
too, for they want to qualify to operate their automobiles.
' The periodic round-up is a good thing. If there is one
class of laws which the people need to have working knowl
edge of it is the motor laws. Of course knowledge of the
law is no substitute for carelessness or absent-mindedness
in, driving; but; at least it eliminates one hazard: ignorance
of the rules of the road. Peoples have shown a good spirit
in taking the tests; and the examinations have not been
hard-boiled. This examination ought to be a contributing
factor in the campaign for highway safety.
Death in Forest Camp
DEATH held the oars of the frail craft which was used
at the forest camp on the North Santiam and two
young men, one an enlisted member of tire citizens' con
servation corps, and the other a skilled forest worker, were
swept to death in the swift, chill waters of the river. It was
the first tragedy of the forest camps, at least in these re
gions. The news of it will tighten the heartstrings in many
a home where young men have gone forth for this service.
These camps have been likened somewhat to army
camps, and for a time the men were under army discipline;
may yet be in fact. While not a military body at all, there
is yet a similarity to the -recruiting of men and shipping
them off by trainloads during the days of the World war.
But how different is the attitude of the people. In 1917
there was- the fever of war excitement. People traveled
hundreds of miles to see Camp Lewis or other army posts.
riviiiflTi nro-anirations were formed to provide entertain
ment for men in the camps. "Nothing too good for the
snMiorx" was the sentiment of the day.
Kftw OrPtmnians and westerners are quite indifferent
J to the locating of scores of these forest camps throughout
the-western forests, borne nave Deen a unie uppity auoui.
it, fearing that the scum of the cities was being deposited
in tM virtrin countrv. Not a single move has been made
' to extend a greeting to these young men who are having
a great new experience in camping out in tne wooas.
member of the camD on the North Santiam,
from Chicago, is quoted as wondering what the people there
do for entertainment of nights. No bright lights of Clark
street are shining on the Elkhorn road; and the mountains
nhn no strains from a Halsted street cabaret orchestra.
The west is west; and the solemn woods are not Chicago or
HAholcen. But if the west is faithful to its reputation for
hospitality it should manifest seme interest in the young
I mn in Mimm camDS. They are Americans, the same as the
w nf i rmv ramns of 1917-M18. and are full of health
I and vigor and normal interests. Our people should endeavor
I to get acquainted with the camps, provide the men with
reading material, otfer tnem some diversion irom me wu
'tins rf fnrf.'1if a.
This accidental drowning of two of the youth in the
camp may stir the people to attention. Give the young men
.a western welcome. .
Mrs. Roosevelt was on the spot in Texas when "Ma"
Ferguson and husband Jim tried to get her to stand be
tween them for a picture.- Or rather she didn't get on the
spot. It was a hot spot all right, for -Texas is split wide
. open on the Fergusons; and it would have been a big feather
in their hats to have the first lady of the land pose with
them. Mrs. Roosevelt had her spunk however and declined,
though her excuse was a bit lame. One way she can avoid
such embarrassing moments is to keep away from the wide
open spaces. She hasn't spent much more time in the White
House than the governor of Oregon does at his office in the
state capitol. - -
So Salem gets its beer. Considerinar that the m-esident
and congress have endorsed nullification of the 18th amend
ment via modification of the Volstead act, it is not surpris
ing that the' city council should shut its eyes to the lan
guage of the city charter, even though there were only eight
weeks to go. And the drive for repeal goes on. so that the
sale of hard liquor may soon be legalized. The friends of
"true temperance? and of "prohibition reform" are showing
up just as plain, old-fashioned wets; and they will soon be
endorsing return oi me saioon.
