Is Gaining Momentum
Political talk grows as winter
comes on and spring brings state
primaries. Meier la nncommuni
cative on his plans and presum
ably doesn't know whether or not
lie will run. Henry Hansen, his
political mentor, has summoned
political water witches of his ac
quaintance, to test the lay of the
land.. Commissioner Thomas aches
to run bnt continues to bide his
time until his chief decides. Rufus
C Holman, like the governor, is
only an occasional visitor at Sa
lem but continues bis own an
nounced but . certain candidacy.
A. W. Norblad who has sat in the
seats of the mighty, is surveying
the ' horizon, and would run if
there was a taint ghost of hope
that he could be nominated. Wil
lard Harks of Albany, reinstated
in the publio prints through a
recent appointment, is a judicious,
level-headed sort of fellow who
would not' make a spectacular
race but might prove a good dark
horse for the disorganized repub
lican party in this state.
Bert E. Haney of Portland is
now almost certainly a democratic
aspirant for governor. If Martin,
the white-haired congressman
who takes "a portion of the Bonne
ville dam credit, doesn't run.
Haney will. The immediate ob
jection to Haney'a candidacy is
his allegiance with Portland which
tends to link him upstate with the
metropolitan hog about which so
much has been said the last
month. Haney denies that he is
Portland-minded and has recently
said he was not In the least to
blame for delays, such as the
hangup of the coast bridge pro
jects. How well he can convince
the upstate that he Is simon-pure
Oregonian without any of the
pork barrel proclivities of Port
land, remains to be seen.

For Second Score
Salem gained what looked like
a safe margin right after the open
ing of the last quarter when from
midfield, Wintermute -wafted a
long pass to Engle who carried
the ball to the seven-yard stripe.
Nicholson in attempting an end
run was forced far back, but
broke loose and regained most of
the distance; Wintermute plunged
to the five-yard line and then
Nicholson dashed around the end
for another stand-up . score. ' '
Especially in view of Its lack of
previous competition . this year,
the Salem team played remarkable
football, with every, man on the
field turning in spectacular per
formances time after time. Engel
and Coons, Halvorsen and Moody
were demons on defense but they
were only slightly ahead of Drag
er, Tada and Grabenhorst. Knight
stood out on pass defense in which
the red and black was slightly de
ficient as a unit.

Every family in America knows that buying a car today represents about
double the investment it did several years ago, Not that car priced have gone
up, but family incomes have gone down. The national income which was 84
billions in 1929 is less than 40 billions in 1933.
This means that everybody is striving to make every outgoing dollar bring
back an' equal -value in quality. And that is right.
No country ever comes to economic trouble. where values are kept equal. It
is only when a man gives honest labor for the dollar which he receives, and
is given dishonest value for the "dollar which he spends, that the nation's
life becomes . unbalanced and broken . This is an old lesson in Bible economics
that we ought to have learned. ;
Buying a car and buying a house are on nearly the same level of importance
in the mind of . the; American family just now. They are both major investments.
Both are considered from the point of long-term use and. value. " ,
. We do not buy houses to, trade them for new models every January. When we
buy a house we expect to make it a home that will give us long, comfortable and
economical use. More than that, we expect that the money price will be so evenly
matched with the real value of the house that we may reasonably hope to get
