TIME TO SPFAK IIP
r HE Portland Oregonian makes a specious argument that
r ureat Britain s reputed attempt at monopoly in Messo-
potamian oil may be charged to President Wilson. The
Portland paper should be ashamed of such sophistry. Great
Britain's opportunity arises from the fact she has ratified the
treaty and is in the League of Nations. The United States is not
in the league and is thereby handicapped. . As long as the pres
ent state of affairs continues we will continue to face embar
rassments. N .
The time for railing at Wilsonism is past. The world is now
interested, not so much in what America has done in the past,
but in what we are to do in the future. It is awaiting fulfillment
of Mr. Harding's promise that he seeks no isolation for the
United States but desires a "new association of nations" for
In the victorious political camp war is already underway be
tween those who seek to make that pledge good and others who
take the irreconcilable view and want to repudiate the pledge
contained in the Chicago platform and in Mr. Harding's
speeches. ' "
. Where does the Portland Oregonian stand on'this live sub
ject that contains so much of good or ill for our nation and for
the future of the republican party? Does it entertain convic
tions or did it throw all such impediments to the winds when
the league subject became a partisan question?
It is futile to talk of last year's bird nests. We are interested

Last evening just after sunset people walking north across
the Main street bridge could see a picture such as the greatest
artist could not improve. There was a reddish glow in the
western sky and Venus twinkled down from .above the same.
The color in the evening sky caused Brown hall to stand out in
black silhouette and in the foreground the river gave a touch
of silver to the scene. It was a wonderful sight. Jf an artist
should4ry to paint a picture in such colors people would say he
was a faker and was trying to improve on nature. Truth is
. stranger than fiction and Mother Nation makes startling use of
. POLITICAL LEMONS
FEDERAL appointments, large or small, are habitually re
ferred to as plums. They should be labelled as lemons.
The ambitious man .especially if he be young and meet
ing with reasonable success, makes a mistake in seeking such an
appointment. Even the important positions, including places in
the cabinet, pay such low salaries that a man can scarcely af
ford to accept such a position unless he has other sources of in
come. The state positions, including the land office appoint
ments and collector-ships, usually prove disappointing to those
who secure them. The salaries afford a living and that is all.
An appointee is generally taken entirely out of the line of work
he is accustomed to and hence has to start anew when his term
expires. The United States district attorneyship is in a different
category because it enables an attorney to establish an acquaint
ance and prestige that may well be useful to him in subsequent
. A political warrior, young or old, who is "unattached" may
at times benefit by an appointment. But even then the chances
are against it. The man who has the force to win a desirable
appointment may be counted upon to have enough ability t
make an even greater success in private lite.
Those who are seeking appointments from the new adminis
tration should not feel too disappointed if they do not get what
they are after. They may live to bless their poor luck.
The practice of bringing big eastern football teams to the
northwest for games with our leading colleges should become
a habit. Our best teams are able to cope with the eastern
elevens and if sufficient western trips are made by the eastern
squads the time will come when the east will know that the
northwest is located in the northwest and not the region around
the great lakes. "

1 Are You Concerned in Your Telephone Service I
" Telephone service is now universally recognized as a necessity in business
and social life. In your own business every day a hundred details are disposed of
by telephone which would require weeks of time and cost you many times over
your present expense if they had to await the slow and antiquated methods of a
few years ago. In your home the convenience and adaptability of telephone
service make the day's duties easy, which, if the telephone were' absent, would
prove to be a slow and cumbersome task. In other words, the telephone is in
dispensable in your office and your home. ......
This being true, you are concerned in whether or rtbt the company which
furnishes your service can continue and improve and extend that service, "iou
are interested in whether or not money can be obtained to maintain and bujld up
the system which is trying to keep page with Oregon growth and progress.
Neither the telephone company nor any other public service company can go
ahead if its revenues are not sufficient to maintain. and "operate its property and
pay a fair earning on the money necjessary to extend its business to meet the
public demand. ( ,
You are interested it is your service. '
