THE BALANCE MUST BE RESTORED
T HIS is a time when people everywhere need to get square
' ly down to fundamental principles. The readjustment
period can be. hastened if the general public will ap
praise basic conditions in their true light and prepare to act ac
cordingly, uiten. tne' true situation may not seem attractive.
There will be a temptation to try temporary expedients of one
sort or another. $ome of these may be good or seem good but
in com iacts are that most of them will fail. Water runs down
hill and the law of gravity cannot be altered.
; Because the following from a financial statement by the Na
tional City Bank Has the ring of sincerity it is hereby reproduced
by theast Oregonian in the hope it may be of benefit to read
ers. "We cannot look for a restoration of full employment and
prosperity until something like the old balance between agricul
turftjand the other industries is restored. If there was any pros-1
pect of a rise in the prices of farm products, it might be argued
that the balance would be restored in that way, but there is little
basis for such expectation. The prices of 'our farm products are
aepenaent upon tne prices at which the surplus can be sold in
foreign markets To cut down our production for the purpose
of raising prices would be an attempt to sustain prices on an ar
tificial basis, a basis of scarcity. The farmer would have less
to sell, and the attempt at curtailment would check the decline
in the cost of living and the downward tendency of costs in the
other industries, with the result that the farmer would continue
to pay high prices for everything he bought. The remedy does
not lie that way, but in bringing the prices of other things down
to the level of farm products. When a bushel of wheat, a bale
of cotton and a pound of pork will buy as many goods in the
stores as in 1919, the farmer will be able to resume his position
in the trading circle; not before.
' "Let nobody think this is the..farmer's problem, exclusivefy
or chiefly. The merchant, 4he manufacturer, the wage earner
of every factory town, is directly interested in it, and has a part
to perform. There will be no general resumption of business
until the industries are back in balance. Manufacturers need
not assure themselves that when present stocks are exhausted,
orders will come and the industries will revive. There may be
spurts of revival, but they will be false starts until the balance
is restored. Wage-earners will be mistaken if they think that
the matter of wages is wholly between themselves and their
employers; the goods cannot be distributed unless prices are
within reach of the great mas3 of the population.
The effect will be the same if the wage-earners are not fairly
treated. They should not be asked to take lower money-wages
vnless retail prices come down, so that the reduced wages will
have about the same purchasing power. The problem is to main
tain stable relations between all the factors in industry. Public

superficial assumptions. The truth is that there are great eco
nomic laws which hold society together, and fix the relations
between classes and interests beyond the power of agreements
or legislation to change them. The power to create confusion
and to delay readjustment of course exists, but nobody is likely
to gain anything by that policy.
"There are great industries, dealing with the farmers, which
are taking the position that they are unable to reduce their costs
and therefore cannot see their way to reduce their selling prices.
!f this is because they dislike to propose wage reductions to their
employes, it is a mistaken view, for they cannot hope to give full
employment unless thay can maintain sales. The employes are
entitled to know this and probably know it already. If it is be
cause they have large inventories of high cost supplies upon
which they do not want to take losses, they are in the same po
sition as the farmer who must sell a high-cost crop on a low-price
market. It must be said to them as is said to the farmer, that it
is not past costs but future costs that must govern prices now
Replacement costs are the ones to be considered What can a
new competitor in the field, who starts with a new stock, or with
' materials bought at the new price level, afford to do? What
enn each man afford to do as his part of getting industry back
to settled, normal conditions?

Payrolls and Prosperity
Oregon need3 more and larger payrolls. Prosperity is a concrete "condition,
not an abstract thought. : It is created by the opportunity for work, the invest
ment of money in new and enlargement of old projects, the development of trade,
the meeting of producer and consumer, the exchange of labor for purchasing'
power. "'' '" " -
-The Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Company, representing a payroll of
approximately $3,000,000 per year in Oregon, has reached a point beyond which
it cannot,goith its present income; It h as asked for higher rates which will en
able it to maintain its service, meet its payroll obligations and earn a reasonable
return upon Its investment in Oregon., If it obtains this it can carry on ita con
struction program, offer more work in Oregon, enlarge its payrolls and .take Its
proper partjh the progress of this state. If ;t cannot secure' adequate rates it
must limit its expansion in every way, abandon its plans for extensions and lay
c . v ;.' .
off its construction crews. -' " '
' , , '...
The rates asked for will not work a hardship upon any individual; thay represent
but a small increase per station over present rates, but in the aggregate would
permit the telephone company to continue to fully serve the public, carry out its
plans for the development of Oregon, and d,o its part in creating and maintain- '
ing the prosperity which is essential to this state.
Adequate service is dependent upon adequate rates.?.
