A little while to be with you
And dream that love's eternal true;
To nee, when sunlight leaves the skies.
The light undying in love's eyes; ';
, Only a little while to be
Here, where your Love la light to me!
A little while to know the blisa
That thrills me when Love's curls I kiss;
To wander with him, hand in hand.
Into his sunlit, starlit land! -..
.. A little while his face to see
Here, where your smile Is heaven to me!

LET US TRY THE WORK CURE
THE true answer to the so-called tax problem in Oregon
can be found in the development of just such projects as
the Umatilla rapids enterprise. Snce we cannot reduce
the divisor let us increase the dividend. That will bring the
result we wish through increasing the taxable wealth of the
state. . '
That we cannot reduce the divisor, to-wit the present 6tate,
county and city expenditures, must be evident to any practical
businessman. " '
There is not a state institution that cannot truthfully show it
L hampered for lack of funds. Some of our institutions are so
notoriously neglected that the thing amounts to a public scandal.
Our officials are everywhere underpaid. The governor of
Oregon receives a salary that a successful salesman would scorn.
The attorney general labors for a remuneration that is no temp
tation whatever even to the average country lawyer. In Uma
tilla county our county judge during the past six years felt for
t mate if his salary proved sufficient to pay for his travelling ex
penses. He 'simply worked for six years without pay. Our
school superintendent, who is an exceptionally capable man, is
probably the lowest paid principal of the county. How are we
to reduce his salary or even avoid a raise if we wish to retain
tuch talent. Our assessor works for less pay than does his dep
uty. The situation in Umatilla county is probably true of ' other
counties in the state. -Then where does the tax reducer have
any chance? It is plain that the remedy lies elsewhere. If a
man's income is not sufficient to support his family the remedy
u not to starve his family. He should get busy with hand or,
brain or both and earn a larger income. He can usually do that
if he had the gumption.
The same principle applies to the state. We cannot, cut ex
penses but we can increase our wealth and that will automati
cally lighten the burden of the taxpayer. ; . ; .
It is estimated that if we could irrigate all the land subject
to reclamation by pumping in territory adjacent to the Umatilla
rapids an annual crop production of $30,000,000 could be se
cured from land that i3 now worse than useless. It is a blight
upon the state. Why not turn that acreage to usefulness and
Let Old Man Oregon stop playing Little Boy Blue and get to
work. You will be surprised at the results.
THE FOSTER CHILD FANTASY
" : Ill' -I V' , -HH :
OF particular interest to parents is the study made by Dr,
Edmund S. Conklin, head of the department of psychol-
ogy in the University of Oregon, of the foster child fan
tasy the notion among children that they have different and
greater parentage than their own. This study has just been
Dublished by the University m a 20-page leaflet.
Dr. Conklin sent out questionnaires and received 905 returns,
640 from juniore and seniors in eight different Oregon high
schools and 264 from students of the University of Oregon. Of
these, 258, 87 girls and 171 boys, recalled some experience with
The following reasons were given by those students fcr.be-
lievme they were not their parents children : Suggestions from
iheir reading and observation of actual cases ; actual or sup
posed mistreatment; peculiar family c:rcumstances such as pro
longed absence from parents, parental disagreement, great dif
ference in children's ages, or the previous marriage of one par
ent; accidental causes such as the parent misunderstanding the
child or the child misunderstanding the remarks of adults;
activity of mind caused by being much alone or having nothing
to do; growth stimulus such a3 early adolescent development
and desire for the different; absence of mental or physical fam
ily resemblance ; and miscellaneous causes, such as self pity,
liire of elsewhere or the wild, mood, desire for older brother,
vivid dream. ! .
According to Dr. Conklin, a striking instance of this 'foster
child fantasy" is Opal Whitely, author of the Story of Opal, who
denies her parentage and claims angel parents.
, President-elect Harding holds that a good navy is essential
for the United States so long as armaments are fashionable.
He is evidently not vastly in sympathy with the Borah idea of
disarmament and that is encouraging. Uncle Sam is a good fel
low but he should aiot play Quaker until all the other boys are
willing to do likewise. ' -
Some folk are afraid the Umatilla rapids project is too big
to be handled now; the state of Washington is vigorously cham-I-ioning
a project that calls for an expenditure ten times as large
us our scheme calls for.
