Right lo Work" Law
For the second time in Kansas history a
Republican governor has failed of renomina
te. That fate befell Gov. Fred Hall in the
primaries Tuesday when he lost out by some
80.000 votes to State Rep. Warren W. Shaw.
What seems to have contributed much to
Hall's defeat was his veto of a "right-to-work"
law. Republicans in agricultural Kansas evi
dently wanted this legislation,, even if they
have to change governors to get it
Meanwhile over in Washington a right-td-ork

All the newspaper comment we have seen
has been critical of the state department's
lowering the boom on American newsmen
from accepting Red China's invitation to
come and look that country over. Herbert
Brucker of the venerable Hartford Courant,
chairman of the committee on freedom of
information for the American Society of
Newspaper Editors has entered a protect
with the state department over Its announce
ment of no passports for American reporters
to go to Red Chins. Just what does the USA
have to be scared of? We've been berating
the Reds for their Iron or Bamboo Curtains,
why run away with tail-between legs when
they offer to lift the, curtain a trifle?

. Secretary of Defense Wilson has "done It
again." The poor secretary has blundered
again in his public utterances. Quiwed by
reporters on the Suez canal crisis he re
sponded that U.S. military dispositions
shouldn't be upset by "ripples" on the inter
national scene. Then he gave out with this:
"We csn't flip up and down with such rela
tively smsll things." We csn imagine the re;

trariwlse, lands that ordinarily produce well will
fall far short t expectation If they don't receive
' sufficient moisture at the. time they need It.
Some career men within the department who
have little interest ia the political implications of
' the various programs or agriculture have offered
the opinion that weather has ia many years deter
mined to a greater extent the end result of a par
ticular program than has the program itself.
This year, ia Umatilla County there is evidence
M all sides to bear out that opinion. A combina
tion of ideal growing conditions has produced the
largest grain crop (wheat and barley) in the
county's history. Umatilla County lands got mois
ture in liberal quantities at the exact time that the
moisture could, in combination with fertiliiers. pro
dure maximum results. So. under an acreage al
lotment program designed to curtail production
L'matilla County has produced a bumper crAp.
Peas sre not under curtailed planting regula
tions, but they, too, were produced in l'matilla
County in record quantity this year.
Our wheat and barley production will cause the
Department of Agriculture some concern because
It decidedly is not what the department hopes for
in hs drive to reduce a grain surplus. The con
cern is not likely to be shared locally. The past
three years wheat producers in this county have
had a tough time. So have pea producers. The
return from agriculture was down some $10,000 000
in this county last year. A good pay day was long
overdue.
Let us all rejoice with all the farmers in this
happy year. The good fortune that has come to
them will be reflected at all levels of our local
economy.
We'll let the men in the Depsrtment of Agricul
ture struggle with the weather, Let us hope they
don't find a way In shut off the rainfall that puts
money into our pockefsaccording to when it comes
to our dry lands and in what amount.

WASHINGTON The regular
author of this column, Rob Smtih,
offers the opinion that "Oregon
members of Congress have not
scrapped so among themselves in
many a year as thry did in these
past' two sessions of Congress."
For the first tune in many a
year, both parties have repre
sentation in Congress, the oppor
tunity to express both sides of
various issues. '
However, the differences with
in the Oregon delegation have
not been just partisan. The Presi
dent has been lined up on the
tame side n Oregon Democrats
s good many times in opposition
to Oregon Republicans.

far British prestige and power
in the Middle East have deterio

As for France its position in
the Arab world has virtually col
lapsed. During the second world
war it was ousted from Syria
and Ibanon, and in recent years
it ha been forced to grant self
rule to Tunisia and Morocco and
promise reforms for Algeria. The
Arab world has sided with the
rebellious North Africans, with
Cairo a center for their intrigue.
So France sees itself being
closed put of its once important
position among Arab countries,

shares of the canal company.
This explains why. France lined

canal will operate without inter

Iran and surely will be employed

Time Flies:
George Jean Nathan and Wolcott
Gibbs, of whom Mr. Johnson
seems to be a sedulous, if some
what inexpert, imitator.
The most important difference
has to do simply with the number
of reviews. A Broadway produc
tion is reviewed by at least a
doien influential drama critics in
newspapers and msgiimes. Such
a coverage allows a fair samp
ling of cultivated opinion.
But the Pentacle productions
are reviewed, so far as I know,
only by the two Salem papers;
and judging by the repetition of
idea and error in the evening re
view (I am, for Instance, erron
eously identified by Mr. Johnson
in The Ststesman as an "O S.C.
professor of literature," and the
evening paper compounds the er
ror), one might justifiably as
sume that Pentacle receives only
one review, or at best, one and
a half.
It seems to me that a reviewer
who has such power has also
commensurate responsibilities.
He should not allow waspishness
and wit to overweigh his judg
ment, and the knowledge that he
alone represents published dra
matic criticism should increase
his caution and moderation.
Again, the Broadway critic re
views professional plays, design
ed, directed and acted by pro
fessinnsls who are sble to spend
all of their time in making a
play as good as possible. A pro
fessions! knows the risks he is
taking; he braves the lashes of
the critics because the rewards
of .success can be extravagant.
As a professional he can expect
to have his professional perform
ance ridiculed, reviled, and re-'
jected; he does not expect gen
erosity or mercy, snd he re
ceives neither.
The people involved in Pen
tacle productions are amateurs
who devote whatever spare time
they can find to an occupation
which they enjoy, but which Appreciation
nevertheless imposes nn them 1
burdens that can sometimes be
come esressive. They expect
their performances to be judged.
If there were no judgment, there
would he no discrimination; snd
without discrimination there ran
he little feeling of accomplish
ment. But they neither expect nor ap
preciate criticism that Is vicious,
insulting, and excessively per
sonal. '
