The Banner of Demagogy
UNDER the heading "Shameful" the Medford Mail-Tribune
runs the following editorial :
Will wonders never cease! The Portland Journal justifying
Its opposition to the new sales tax, accuses the proponents of
' such a tax as being enemies of the public schools.
Says the Journal: ' v
" ! "And so the Oregon schools are left to starve for this year.
It is a situation to be widely regretted. The schools are the bul
wark of self government. The classrooms and the teachers in
charge are the fortresses of liberty. They are the safeguard of
the nation. How unfortunate that in Oregon the schools are to
be sacrificed for a year in order to soak ths public with a sales
tax!"
'' Now in all seriousness can anyone best that? This new
sales tax was passed SOLELY TO SAVE THE SCHOOLS, all the
revenue from it will GO to the schools. It was advocated by parent-teachers
associations, by county school administrations ,by
' school boards. One of Its strongest supporters was our own su-
perintendent of schools, E. H. Hedrick, who is not only one of
the most competent educators In the state, but certainly has the
cause of the public school system more closely at heart, than
any other resident of Southern Oregon.
And YET the Journal would accuse HIM, and thousands of
citizens like him with being an enemy of the public schools, a
j traitor in the ranks of education seeking to tear down what the
Journal says is the very "bulwark of self government,"
How unfortunate INDEED! This measure was passed by
the legislature, if allowed to become law. its revenues will be
turned over to the schools in 90 days, that is by March. The
completion of the school year will then be certain not only here
but everywhere else in the state.
But the Journal and its supporters, have instituted a refer
endum against the measure, they Jasist upon holding it up for
a popular vote, preventing the schools from receiving this Borely
needed aid, until May or June and M they can play their po
litical cards successfully, not even THEN.
And now this Journal, this newspaper doing everything it
CAN to defeat school aid has the inexpressible GALL to claim
it is the friend and protector of the public school system, and
those who are trying,' in the only practical way it can be done,
to prevent disaster to the schools, are its enemies!
- What can be done with a newspaper like that!
I Why, of course you can do nothing with a paper like
- that : nor with demagogues who constantly play upon public
passions. These are the same disciples who put a halo around
Julius the First and canonized him as the "savior of Oregon",
who promised the people electricity without cost to the tax
payers, and peddled more bunk which the voters lapped up.
Now they turn on the governor and rend him limb from limb.
The one thing the demagogues and demagogic papers
have succeeded in doing j is to make it almost impossible for
the government units in Oregon to function. They would pile
v all the taxes on the wealthy classes, who in Oregon are non
existent. Senators Burke and Zimmerman propose a capital
- levy. That is about what the real estate tax has become, only
-' instead of taking off a portion of a man's property it confis
cates the whole of it in many cases. If people who own real
property cannot or will not pay their property taxes now,
how can they be expected to pay a capital levy?
We are not "hot" for a sales tax; but the fanners who
fight the proposed sales tax are a plain bunch of suckers; be
cause the weight of it will fall on city people and the method
of distribution favors the country areas. The reason farm or
ganizations fight it is because their leaders have sold out to
; organized labor, which is always shrewd and always selfish.
We suppose though the farmers will rally and vote down the
sales tax, letting the burden still rest on their land, while the
-city people who would do most of the paying get to laugh up
their sleeves.
Reply to Fair Questions
Mr. Editor:
I am a regular reader of The Statesman. Your editorials are
- often very Interesting and worthy of careful thought. Your ed
' itorial of this morning on "Are Banks Down?" is a question sure
ly for anxious thought. Your strictures on The Present Policy
of our Government suggest the Question many are asking. What
would yon do, if you were president? The money power has had
their way in the financial policies of the government for 12
years. The crash came whUe they were still in the thrones of .
power. What do they suggest? What can be done to get ns out
of this quagmire that our president is not doing? What would
- ; our hard money men do in this emergency? I am a republican,
voted for Hoover and ardently desired his election.
j ROBERT SMYLIE,
m " 1394 S. Commercial Street.
OUR correspondent confuses bankers guilty of moral and
business delinquency in the late 'new era" with "hard
money men". There is no such identity. Mr. Morgan was
first to come out with a pontifical blessing of the president
for going off the gold standard. The most aggressive advo
catesof the commodity dollar have been the "committee of
the nation", a group of "big business men". The most stren
uous advocates of adhering to sound money have been econ
omists with a broad understanding of the history of experi
ments with money. . . ; . . , '
- Mr. Smylie falls into 'the error of many others in as
suming that because men like Instill; and Wiggin have proved
false leaders that such failure justifies support of a weird
monetary policy espoused bjr the president Their bad eth
ics or poor judgment is without relation to the matter of a
commodity dollar. -
- ; Our correspondent clashes himself as a retired Metb
odist minister; so we presume his income is either in the
v form of a pension from his church or proceeds from invest
ments. If inflation comes as it has inso many countries which
- have thought they too could "take nip" and quit, then his
fixed income would be wholly inadequate to provide him
with necessary subsistence. In ,Germany it finally took 60
miHard of marks to mail a letter. We do not want Mr. Smylie
and others like him, wage earners, civil employes on fixed In
come, to be suddenly rendered destitute through uncontrolled
Inflation. . W.y'- :"';'-' ; v .-: ,,
The general poUey of the government should be direct,
ed, in our humble opinion, toward restoring confidence which
- will in turn release the productive energies of 125 million
people; and the first step in rebuilding confidence is to es
tablish certainty with respect to the circulating medium. The
cycle of depression has passed its hadir, long ago. What will
defeat recovery is reckless government financing, destruc
tion of the public credit and inflation which will ruin the cir
culating meaiiun.

A SHORT TIME ago. Chicago gave
as a scare. Several cases of "amebic
dysentery were discovered and we
had a right to worry. Many were
taken sick and
many of Its vic
tims died.
The ameba of
dysentery Is
probably the
most important
Intestinal para
site found In the
United States. It
does not belong
here. Persona
who have been to
the tropics may
contract this un
comfortable dis
ease and bring
the ameba back
Dr. Copeland
to this country.
Even though they have recovered
from the Illness and even If they do
do not actually have dysentery, thty
may be "carriers" and, if they are
food handlers, pollute the food and
water that will be partaken by well
persons.
A Series Disease)
Dysentery must not be confused
witbT simple -diarrhea. The latter is
annoying but Is easily checked, If
the former takes the amebic form it
is more serious.
Be careful of the food you eat and
the water you drink. Be sure that it
is prepared in a clean, sanitary place
where only healthy people and those
free from germs are employed. Many
Infectious diseases may be carried to
you an a tray of half-cooked food.
It Is better for you to wait an hour
before you eat, than to go into a
place of doubtful cleanliness.
Amebic dysentery is characterized
by very loose bowels, blood, fever and
generally severe vomiting. The pa
tient remains weak and usually loses
sleep and weight
The best thing to do If yon think
one of your family has dysentery is
to call in the family physician. If a
doctor is not available, it is best to
give the patient a thorough clean
ing put. An enema will help consid
erably and help nature to rid the
patient of the ameba.
Spread by "Carriers"
We are never quite safe from the
carriers of disease. Typhoid fever,
diphtheria and amebic dysentery are
three ailments that are traced to
such persons. ' .
Health officials are on the outlook
lor such persons, but It takes clever
detective work to locate some of
them. I knew of a case where the
wife of an employe on the water shed
of a targe city was found to le a
typhoid fever carrier. Her discovery
was due to the remarkable work of
a hearth Inspector. . I -
Clfalrnrss and thorough cooking
of the food, guard against the dan
ger of Infection.' When these are
guaranteed, we may eat in safety.

The Golden Rule
and the diamond Rule, .
to banish- selfishness
and selfseeking and make
all men honest neighbors:
S
The other day, in the Christ
mas rush at the Salem postoffice,
a Japanese student at Willamette
was overheard by the writer In
friendly dispute with a busy win
dow clerk.
m
"What was the occasion for the
dispute?" the average reader will
inquire a pertinent question.
V -s
Well, the student from our
neighbor. land across the Pacific
had made a purchase of postage
stamps, no doubt to send holiday
greetings to his people, for the
spirit of the yuletide (sixth last
word In Webster's Unabridged) is
universal and timeless the germ
of goodwill that will save the hu
man race and bring permanent
world peace, if anything ever
does.
a
And the Japanese student found
that in making change he had re
ceived 28 cents too much. The
dispute was over that fact. The
alien In a foreign land did not
wish to hare the clerk loss that
sum, when be figured up his re
turns in the evening, and he was
very clear on the point He KNEW
he had 28 cents that belonged to
the clerk. He succeeded in con
vincing the clerk of the fact and
went away satisfied. He was hon
estas honest as the family of
his Mikado, which makes official
Japan the most honest in the
world
V .
And which makes "big bus
iness" In Japan the most honest
found anywhere; such as that
owning steamship and telephone
lines, etc., etc., Including insur
ance companies. Why? Because
the family of the Mikado owns an
interest in nearly all great prop
erties of the kind, and so does
the government Itself.
S S
This Is not so true of the small
merchant class. In some parts of
that class, the opposite has been
true, thpugh what we call chisel
ing or cheating is being gradually
rooted out there.
S V S
Well, the writer, after over
hearing the dispute described,
drove his auto down town down
State street. Twice he offered to
give right of way to a woman
driver, in a California car. She re
fused to take it, in. .each case.
- e
Many Oregon women drivers
would have done the same. How
many? How many California
women, either, for that matter?
Or how many Oregon or Califor
nia men, either?
v v v
.There are many women who
claim the privilege of the sex, and
since all men are not so gallant
as to grant it, even when It may
be done without risk of a colli
sion, the , cof uslon is ' accountable
for many clashes, of course some
of them disastrous, even tn th
Lpolnt of loss of life or maiming of
ooay. ' ,
' v s : " '
The two incidents one right
after, the other, occasioned pleas
ant, memories. No one should be
given credit for honesty, even In
small affairs. All persons ought
to be honest, as "a matter of
coarse, But how many Americans
would be so meticulous in cor
recting a-brother' mistake, t even
that of a member of a different
race? No one should take advan
tage of sex gallantry to knowing
ly disregard a traffic rule, mada
for. the safety of all In fact no
JS
one should consciously disobey a
plain .traffic rule for any cause.
U m
No one, In fact, should' disobey
the Golden Rule. As Matthew
7:12 puts it, "All things whatso
ever ye would that men should do
to you, do ye even so to them."
That has tor nearly 2000 years
been called the Golden Rule.
And there is a complementary
rule only a few years younger
that is alike enjoined and of nec
essity required for the perfect
regulation of a complex society
under any form of government. It
la found in Romans 12:10 and
reads:
"Be kindly affectioned one to
another with brotherly lore; in
honor preferring one another."
That is what the writer is pleas
ed to call the Diamond Rule. It
is necessary. If there is to be har
mony between official and private
citizen, or foreman or superinten
dent and worker of a lower rank.
It is required if there is to be har
monious functioning of anv in.
stitutlon as much so as the func
tioning of each part of a healthy
Doay.
Is -
The key word is preferring.
Some one must be preferred, else
orderly government, business or
industry fails and confusion and
decay results.
Complete obedience to both the
Golden Rule and the Diamond
Rule, the writer has proven by
United States court record, t.
sulted in one generation, in the
case or the Keil colony, of Bethel
and Nineveh in Missouri and An.
rora in Oregon, in banishing self-
isnness ana selfseeking from hu

CHAPTER TWENTY-SEVEN
"What are we going to do about
these? she asked, glancing at the
telegrams. s
"Waste baskets were invented
for such utaff," replied Julian so
promptly that the girl was discon
certed. In her mind she had been
planning dignified little acknowl
edgments. "Just ignore the whole
of it," he went on. "There was only
one decent offer in the lot"
T guess I didnt see that one."
"I separated it from the junk.
Here it to," said Julian, rescuing
the proper envelope and tapping it
against his palm. "It's from Jar
retfs, the big department store.
They're planning a tournament for
their customers. They want you to
run ft."
"Mel"
"Tea, you," he smiled. "X think
yon'd better accept Six Friday
afternoons, though you can prob
ably duck out on a couple of them.
They'll pay you for your trouble."
"How much?" demanded Patri
cia, expecting some vast sum.
"Twenty-fire dollars an after
noon," Haverholt told Her. "That
means a hundred and fifty for the
series. They'll give you tons of swell
publicity, paid ads in all the news
papers, circulars mailed oat to their
customers, they'll give you an ele
gant send-off on your dizzy light
to fame."
"Then yon think I had better ac
cept?" T most certainly do."
"All right," said the girl obedi
ently. "I wilL"
She bent her bright head over the
remainder of the messages. She
hardly admitted to herself that she
was searching for some word from
Clark. Apparently everyone in the
world had sent congratulations,
everyone except Clark. At the end
of fire minutes, Patricia folded the
last sheet of yellow paper, thrust
it into its envelope, looked up and
said:
"Is this all?"
"Were yon looking for something
special, my dear?" The man was
watching her closely.
"Why no," she informed him
coolly. "1 was just wondering."
"Maybe this to what you want,"
said Haverholt with equal coolness.
Beaching into the pocket of his
dressing gown he pulled out a
crumpled sheet of paper, handed It

"Maybe this to what you want,"
over. It was a telegram addressed
to both of them.
Patricia spread the paper flat,
read:
"Congratulations to two Z X t a t
bridge players. Hoping to see you
both next week at Belmont Clark."
The girl raised her eyes.
"Why didn't you show this io
me?" she asked lerelly.
"I did show it to you."
"Not until I asked."
"Perhaps," he shrugged, "I want
ed to hear you ask."
"Why?"
Thawing his elbows open the
table, the man suddenly became in
tent and serious. There was now a
certain inflexible quality about him,
troubling and disturbing.
"If I were you, Patricia," he said
deliberately, "I would put Clark
Tracy out of my mind this minute."
The girl went scarlet
"He isnt in my mind," she said
quickly, defensively.
"TouTl never in this world pan it
off," he told ber, ignoring the pro
test. "Clark Tracy to not for you
and the sooner yon acknowledge it
the better. It's not because of
Martha either," he remarked and
continued decisively, "You're pretty
enough and clever enough to dis
pose of Marthe'a claims in short
order. After yon'd laid ytAir
groundwork and got your campaign
under way, Clark probably would
n't remember there was a Marthe
March. Don't bother getting high
minded," he said sharply, as Pat
ricia, horrified, attempted to inter
rupt. Tre never yet met a woman
who wasn't utterly unscrupulous
where the prior rights of other, wo
men were concerned. I dont blame
yon for it If s your nature, child."
The girl was furious.
"You dont know as much shoot
women as yon think yon do," she
said seething with anger.
"Pro bad years of experience,
darling. Ah, those were the years!"
"Stop it, stop' this minute," she
stormed at him. "Ton may know
women bat you dont know me. I
like Clark Tracy. Well, what if I
do? I've met his fiancee; I like her
too. I suppose I hare a right to like
them if I want to. Too you're try
ing to make something out of noth
ing. Fm sure I cant guess why you
take the trouble."
Poshing back the telegrams she
rose from the table and stalked to
ward the door, half expecting that
Haverholt would can. He main
tained a baffling silence. She hesi
tated at the threshold. Still he said

"Can you give me one single rea

willingly she turned. He 1 e e k e i
straight into her eyes. "Has H ever

Patricia walked to the breakfast
table and sat down. She joined her
hands beneath a strained whits
face.
"You arent going to tall him,
are you?" she whispered.
There was a silence in the pre-'
dsely ordered breakfast room. Pat
ricia sat strained and motionless.
Julian Haverholt ground out his
cigarette.
"I dont need to tell Clark any
thing," he said sharply. "If you
persist in tailing in love with him
yon wUl tell him the truth your
self. And he wont like the truth I"
Patricia faced him bravely.
"The truth is not so terrible," she
said. "I have done nothing wrong,
rm not afraid.".
"Save your defence for Clark,"
suggested Haverholt, not nngently.
"Whatever yon say I will say: your
story will be mine. But I very
much doubt that you can success
fully gild the facts." He hesitated,
added, "Clark Tracy simply to not
constituted ' to understand or te
sympathize with the peculiar psy

"Are you inferring that I ass as

"I am merely trying to force yqi

wouldnt giro a damn for her past
or for her future. I would be too
