Pile the oak logs higher
When winds of winter race;
Soon you'll seek the fire
In the old-time fire place.
Hold thla lesson well In sight;
Life must keep the fire bright.

In the firelight's gleams,.
Tell the old-time stories
Dream the old, sweet dreams,
In life's morning and its night.
Brethren, keep the fire bright!

The withdrawal of the chamber's
opposition followed, the sitpilng by the
committee of 15, which Is sponsoring
the consolidation measure, and liy a
majority of the men named in the bill,
as members of the proposed consoli

that the bonding power of the commis
sion will not be used for new work
without the authorlxatlon of the elec
torate of the Port of Portland district.
Opposition of the Chamber of Com
merce and of other organizations and
individuals to the proposed legislation
was on the ground that It violated the
principle of home rule by granting to
a state body the power to Issue Bonds
to be paid for by the people of this
port district without the specific vote
of this district. In a public statement
Monday, Frank M. Warren, chairman
of the present port commission, pledg
ed himself and a majority ot the 12
men named as members of the new

OUTSIDE of the reactionary Harding-Lodge wing of the re
publican party there is no objection anywhere in the
world to the League of Nations. The league is a great
vorld move tor peace and is so treated by all the nations. They
have all gone in gladly without suspicion and without haggling.
Even in Germany many look forward to membership in the
league and the new Mexican government, khich shows signs of
stability, is brushing its boots with a view to joining the class if
it can pass the test.
The fact all other great nations look so favorably upon the
league and its provisions shows the absurdity of the objections
raised by Harding. If half the things Harding claims are true
none of those great countries would have gone into the league
The English, French, Italian. Belgian, Swiss, Swedish, Nor

have no dfesire to 'sacrifice' their countries nor do they risk their

The Harding plea for rejection of the league is but part of a
damnable political scheme to ball up the whole peace program
hi a spirit of petty spite against President Wilson. It is monstrous
and almost unbelievable that men could be so little. They
vould get nowhere were it not for the fact that the hyphen ele

and partisan voters to make a strong showing even for a weak

what else. The world cannot go forward along lines of pros
perity and peace until the rock of militarism and fear of war is
taken from its neck. Our own country carries a staggering load

' THE MAYORALTY
PENDLETON people are to be congratulated upon the
character of the two men who are running for mayor.
Both men are of the highest business and personal integ
rity, both are committed to law enforcement and to making this
a good home town. On this point there is no real issue between
them as far as this paper can observe. Both men are churenmen
and leid honorable lives. We can tak each man at his word
and look for improvement along certain lines regardless of who
ia chosen and there should be an improvement. The success of
Pendleton and the future of the Eound-Up and Happy Canyon
call for clean local conditions that will be satisfactory to those
living here and to the thousands who come here not for license
but to see the greatest and most thrilling show on earth.
The candidacy of Mr. Hartman has a particular appeal for a
i umber of reasons. He is an experienced businessman of pro
t essive tendencies and has a record as a worker for the com-
i unity good. He has had his shoulder to the wheel on counties,
orcasions and works with a painstaking efficiency that elicits
admiration. He has long been an officer and a leader in Com
r.ercial Association work. He was a leader in the splendid move
whereby we secured the public natatorium. He was a leader
in the move whereby a group of businessmen, prompted chiefly
by town patriotism, built the splendid Security apartment house
ii order to help relieve the housing congestion. In any move for
t e commercial or social upbuilding of the city George Hartman
has always been a dependable asset and for such service he is
entitled to credit.
Another feature of the case is that Mr. Hartman is engaged
in work that will make him always accessible to those wanting
to confer with him and he will always be on deck to handle the
innumerable duties that fall upon the mayor and make him a
much busier man than most people realize.
Mr. Hartman was induced to run by businessmen who were
inspired by a desire to see Pendleton go forward. There has
long been a desire to improve the city government machinery
and to carry out in due season a community development pro-
j-ram including more playgrounds, recreational facilities and
t her features. They felt that a progressive businessman a?
mayor would be a big help toward such ends and Mr. Hartman
was persuaded to enter the race before any candidate had an
i ounced himself.
Those who wish Pendleton to have a capable, forward look
ing mayor who is a veteran of many campaigns for the city's
pood, will make no mistake in voting for Mr. Hartman and this
expression is to be taken as no reflection upon Mr. Rugg, whose
cnaracter and purposes are above question.

Saturation Point Iredicted
Pessimists assert that the saturation
point In automobile production is rap
idly approaching. Somehow or other
that statement sounds familiar. Oh,
vee come to think of It, the same
thing was said ten years ago when
statisticians proved at great length
that there could never be more than
f 00,000 cars In use.
Ignorance Quickly Shown
Two of the best ways for a mo
torist to show his Ignorance of the
rudiments of road ethics are "hog
ging the road" and refusing to dim his
headlights when another car ap
proaches along the road. Such prac
tices are not only unfair to the other
fellow but are likely to result In serious
accidents in which both cars may be
smashed. 'V' '.

MAN named Heinz who is a Harding manager in Chicago
i ntes to the people of Oregon to defeat Senator Cham
berlain and elect Mr. Stanfield. Why? The Harding
western campaign manager, who was an ardent pro German
bfore the war, who glorified the kaiser snd censured the Bel
gians for resisting German invasion, has also made a public ap
peal against Senator Chamberlain. Why? Monta villa Flowers,
t- professioal elocutionist from California, and several discredit
t d politicians from Washington are telling us the same thing.
Why? Why is it necessary for all those outsiders to tell the peo
ple of Oregon how to choose a senator?
The titles on the city measures to be voted on Tuesday do
