' The Two-Faced Dollar
THE dollar, any dollar, faces two ways. One face is what
the exporter sees, and if that face is less comely he is
happy. The depreciated dollar is a spur to exports. Smaller
sums of foreign currencies can get more American dollars
and hence more American goods in terms of exports.
But the dollar, the same dollar, has another face. That
is the face the importer sees. And when that face is less at
tractive the dollar is worth less in foreign currencies, and
will buy less goods abroad.
Like the debtor-creditor relation, most people are inter
ested both in exporting and in importing. For the moment
one may feel elated because he f ind3 a readier market abroad
for his cotton and prunes. He will be pained a little later
when the reverse of the depreciated dollar affects him in
higher prices for coffee and rubber and tin and sugar.
People do not seem to realize that over the long term our
foreign business, exporting and importing must be in approx
imate balance. There is a temporary fillip to exporting as a
result of the depreciated dollar but the inevitable tendency
by the operation of economic laws is for readjustments to be
made either by automatic upping of prices of imports or by
raising of tariff barriers abroad or by counter-depreciation
of foreign currencies, to extinguish the apparent advantage.
Meantime it practically results in our giving more of our
goods in exchange for smaller amounts of foreign goods, and
that is not such a bright business deal either.
Fluctuating currencies hamper foreign trade. Steady
currencies encourage it. Remember this fundamental thing,
that trade must flow two ways, or soon it does not flow at all.

In the safeguarding of the public credit. Salem's bond load is heavy
enough and Its warrant debt is embarrassing. It is entirely feasible
to add more bonds as revenue bonds to be taken care of out of wa

discount. Cities are struggling now from past over-Indulgence of

many thousands of dollars that are
spent annually on patent medicines

I am often asked, "What is the
cause of baldness?
It Is due to atrophy or death ot
the hair follicles. Many theories have
been advanced to explain this unwel-'

never be bald and another man will

Everybody knows that baldness is
more common among men than
women. But I wonder how many of
my readers appreciate that baldness
among women has become much
more common since bobbed hair be

confirm an old belief that baldBess
among men can be traced to too close
cropping of the hair. It is also be
lieved that men are more susceptible
to baldness than women for they do
not comb and brush their hair as
often as women do.
Tightly Fitted Hat
To my mind, the wearing of heavy
and close fitting hats is a factor in
baldness. ; The blood vessels are con
stricted and the health and vigor

Some authorities believe that bald
ness U a hereditary disease. Others
regard it as the result of some dis
turbance of the scalp, such as dan
druff, ringworm or eczema. It is
probable that many constitutional
diseases play an Important role In the
development ot baldness.
I am confident that many caaes of
premature baldness could have been
prevented if the victim had siren
proper attention to the hygiene and
health of his scalp. Bear In mind
that the scalp demands dally, atten
tion. Dandruff and other disturbances
must be remedied before further loss
of hair can be prevented.
Comb and brush your hair dally.

of the covered wagon pioneers:

The missionaries could not have

their blacksmiths. The very first

E. O. Hall was the first printer.

Mr. Hall and his wife visited
the Jason Lee mission, before go

Lapwai, then in charge of Rev. H,
H. Spalding and wife, whither he
took the press and outfit, and
they also were at the Lee mis
sion on their way home. At Lap

trade to Rev. Spalding, and to
Cornelius Rogers, lay member of
his mission.. .

primers and hymns, and, as wfli
be noted later on, the book, of
St. Matthew, also a grammar.
The Indian students, old and
young, learned to write and to
copy the books' for other learn
ers for they became so numer
ous that there were not a suffi
cient number of the printed
books. . .Chief Lawyer was the

that the Indian church organised
by the Spaldlngs at Lapwai (Ida

for the nearly 100 years since,

The second printer coming to
Oregon was M. G. Folsey, with
the 1844 covered wagon train
He worked at the Lapwai mis
sion, setting up the book of Mat

Indian grammar. He went to Cal
itornia and worked on Th ri
ifornian at Monterey, in English
and Spanish, that was merged
with the Alta Californian, at San
Francisco, the latter a great and
able paper of-the old days.
The 1845 covered waeon Imml
gratlon brought two printers. One
was Gideon R. Nightingale, who
set type on the first issue ot the
Oregon Spectator at Oreron Citv
dated Feb. 5. 1846. He afterward
located in Marysville, Cal.
The other was John Fleming.
He was the main printer of the
Spectator, and remained at Ore
gon City until his death, Dec. 2.
1872, at the age of 78. He came
from Ohio and left a family there
to whom he never returned, but
was highly esteemed in his new
home. Fleming was appointed
postmaster ot Oregon City in
1856. Afterward he was in the
printing and publishing business
with T. F. McElroy, and they
were succeeded by T. D. Watson
and G. D. R. Boyd, then by Boyd
a lone. The Spectator press came
to Salem in 1855, then to Rose
burg, then went to Eugene, where
it was used in printing Harrison
R. Kincaid's Oregon Journal. In
the school years of '81-2, '82-3
and '83-4, the Bits man ran it.

gleaming table, prepared to serve

Dinner was served. Lids popped

To a girl who had subsided for
weeks on drug-store sandwiches,

may demand publicly the removal

perior, then any member of any

Such a trend is toward chaos.'
This newspaper has recently
stated and repeated its conclusion
that Dr. Kerr's position as chan
cellor has become untenable. It
assumes now that the board re
cognizes that situation and will
give it consideration later. It Is
proper enough that first there
should bo a setting ot the house
in order, and investigation of the
campaign ot subversion in faculty
circles will be a good beginning.
One reason why subversion has
thrived is that the board has not
always given, the chancellor the
support to which he was entitled.
The board will lack wisdom If It
fall to recognise that : half-way
measures, will be inadequate to
meet tve crisis that has developed
in higher education. The situa
tion can be saved now only by
positive measures. There should
be lasting rebuke to insubordina
tion. There should be a tempered
and considerate settling ot the
problem of the : chancellorship.
There should be an end to Intern
al bickerings in the board. ' If
the board cannot seer these neces
sities and act upon them, its mem
bers ought all to resign together.
The welfare of higher education Is
more important than the fortunes
of individuals. The Oregonian.
