Disabled Vets on War
AS men w ho have tasted the woes of war there is no group
better qualified to express judgment on it than the dis
abled war veterans. Missing limbs, impaired senses, weak
ened bodies are constant reminders to them of the cost of
war. So it is not surprising that the convention of this or
ganization should take a positive stand against wars of ag
' gression and against war as a vehicle of profit. Here are res
"6lutions adopted by the organization at its convention here
"Adequate preparedness for defensive purposes as a safe
guard to peace.
"That -we will not for the purpose of destruction, devasta
tion or conquest, dross the borders of another nation.
"That this government shall place a strict embargo on the
I shipment and sale of all arms, ammunition and other instruments
i ul war iu txuy uiiiuu ai Buy nine.
"That this country, In co-operation with all other nations,
establish the necessary means for settling of international dif
ferences without resort to war.
"Disarmament, by mutual agreement, to the lowest possible
"That such laws be enacted tLat will guarantee neutrality
in event of war between other nations.
"In the event of this country becoming involved in a war of
defense, all wealth, man-power and resources be conscripted for
the duration of the conflict.
"That the United States refuse to make loans of money,
either private or federal, to ny belligerent nation, and further,
that the sale of their bonds and securities shal. be- prohibited in
the United States and its possessions."
These men still keep their fighting blood, they are not
pacifists ; but they are alive to deals in which thousands are
sent to the battlefield while a few stay home to reap profits.
And they favor establishment of agencies to settle disputes
without resort to war. Not all their objectives are easy of
accomplishment. But their testimony as to the need is elo
quent; their sacrifices make a most effective appeal for
Old Money Lenders
THE sins of the bankers are by no means a recent phenom
enon. The bible condems the oppression of usurers. At
the beginning of modern times money lending was still con
demned by the church, so the job was given to the Jews in
Florence and other Italian cities. That was the origin of
Jewish financial power. Many great financial houses arose
before the house of Rothschild. One of the greatest of these
in the early 16th century was the house of Fuggers. Martin
Luther condemned the Fuggers severely in his time.
Here is the way history describes their putting kings
in pawn :
"Thanks to Judicious loans to the Hapsburgs. they had. ac
quired enormous concessions of mineral property, silver and
quick silver lines in Spain and Germany, and controlled bank
' ing and commercial enterprises in Italy, and above all in Ant
werp. They advanced the money which made Albrecht of Bran
denburg archbishop of Mainz; repaid themselves by sending
their ffgent to accompany Tetzel oa his Campaign to raise money
by indulgences and taking half of the proceed, provided funds
with which Charles V bought the imperial crown, after an elec
tion conducted with the publicity of an auction and the morals
of a gambling hell; browbeat him when the debt was not paid, in
the tone of a pawnbroker rating a necessitous client; and found
money with which Charles raised the troops to fight the protest
ants in 155 2. The head of the firm built a church and endowed
. an almshouse for the aged poor in his native town of Augsburg.
He died in the odor of sanctity, a good Catholic and a Count
of the Empire having seen his firm pay a fifty-four per cent
dividend for the preceding sixteen years."
lhe business of monev lending is vprv nlri h0
methods of extortion in getting the money back are very old
too. At that the international bankers have been as honest
as their borrowers, probably more so. Gradually the sense
v ruueai responsiDiiuy nas grown however; and the job
of money lending rests on a much higher plane than ever
Wives for College Graduates
IT is not often a man who gets the front pages with a left
handed expression, can repeat; but Prof. Robert E. Rog
ers, who a few years ago advised a class of college young
jnen to "marry the boss' daughter and be snobs", has made
Ine grade. This year he was talking to the seniors of jjas
Sachusetts Tech. Taking cognizance of changing times, in
tuch the boss' daughter, may be out scratching for a living
herself, Prof. Rogers altered his advice on marriage. He rec
ommended for a wife for the college man
v vA serious-minded, studious girl, four or five years older
than himself, preferably a graduate of Smith, Bryn Mawr, Vas
aar or Wellesley. a girl who U a specialist in agriculture, econ
omics, sociology and who has 'a government Job."
"SP she has Job in Washington," said the pro
lessor. Then-all that is necessary is to have the wife get the
college paduate husband a job with the government "where
Ue will have peace and quiet for the rest of his life".
In view of the trend it will not be necessary to move to
Washington. Government agencies are spreading the jobs all
round the country. What will happen though when the tax
payers are milked dry?

In order to determine the under

child should be thoroughly examined
by a physician. This examination In

and ears. Special testa for deafness
are employed bees use the child who

Never punish a child for imperfect

so that he will obtain more rest, an

the child' health improves, a marked

In severe cases I would advise that
the children receive special instruc

handicap. This consists of super

programs. Usually there are play

Correct the child In a kindly manner
and never scold him for his stam

Recently the theory has been ad
vanced that stammering arises when
left-handed tendencies are sup
pressed when the child Is develop

a child should be corrected from
using his left hand and trained to
use his right hand Instead. It is not
a bad plan to encourage the use of
both hands. In this way he may be
come capable of using his right hand
with equal facility.

were sitting on the stiles and
swinging on the lower halves of
wide barn doors. The dogs slept
in the Bun, the cocks crew, and
the pigeons cooed in the airy
lofts. The barns themselves, four
times as large as the houses, were
all bursting with last year's har

Frenchmen, left their play to
courtesy to Jason Lee and to

their Cnadian husbands they
deemed no sacrifice too great,

We are presuming on your
good nature, but, really, the
statement recently appearing in
The Statesman, in which county
commissioner, Roy Melson is
quoted as saying, "We have some
pieces of cutover timber land and
some city lots, and a few poor
farm tracts but I don't know a
single one where a man .could
make a living thereon. t
"Furthermore. If the county
were to give the proposed oper
ator one of these tracts 11000 I
still don't think we have land
where a man could make a liv
ing. vThe truth is that almost every
day the county has applications
for relief from men on 10 to 30
acres who can not make a living
from that land."
Wife and I wish to protest that
presentation by Mr. Melson on
the ground of personal experience.
One year ago in February, a
good man, then in state employ,
let ua move onto his little ranch,
which is listed on the county tax
ledger as having but seven acres
under cultivation. He charged us
no rent, but said we might do
some upkeep If we wanted to.
We had no equipment, no seed.
no team, and for that reason our
planting was delayed so that at
least one half of the planting
was not worth harvesting; yet we
have been able to eat three times
a day eat mil we want and
have present prospects of raising
more than several families can
consume till next season. Yes,
and at that I am an old, worn
out man 70 years of age, and the
good Mrs. is tearly aa old. We
did have a cow in milk, part of
the time; but that was our only
We had a grown son living
with us, and a little grand daugh
ter; but the son. though a me
chanic, and an experienced trac
tor man, and repeatedly applying
mrougn tne county relief employ
ment agency, has never received
any employment therefrom, and
has not been able to pick up odd
Jobs sufficient to pay his board
in any town for half a season,
let alone for a year.
We have seen a good deal of
the land In Marion county, and
it would be hard to pick out "30"
or even "10" acres on which wife
and I can not make a living and
as for the "11000" which Mr.
Nelson mentions, if given the
$1000 and located on the "10"
or "30" acres, stump land, raw
land, most any land in the valley,
we could construct comfortable
buildings and make a living.
We are even now voluntarily
paying taxes on our present loca
tion; for the owner has since
been retired from the industry by
the state, and we feel that we
should help out a little.
If Mr. Nelson questions this
statement, let him Interview Mr.
Wade Ellis, of Salem, whose
place we now occupy.
