Since the state hospital ia being enlarg-ed and some day will
have double its present population the question of fuel and lijrht-
injr expense is an important item. The subject ia of interest not
only to tlie superintendent and the state board but likewise to
the taxpayers who must foot the bill. The same thing applies to
the fuel and lighting expense at the Walla Walla penitentiary.
The best interests of Oregon and Washington require that
power be developed at Umatilla rapids as speedily as possible.
Measured in the terms of coal at present prices we are wasting
$,;oo somewhere between five million and twenty-five million dollars
every year the Umatilla rapids power is unused.
It is high time we checked up on this gigantic waste.

THE MAN FROM ROCHESTER
(By Dr. William E. Barton)
MAN in Rochester returning from his business and hurry
ing to supper, noticed a group of excited men on the
bank of the Genesee river. He stopped long enough t6
see tiiat they were endeavoring to rescue a boy who had fallen
m. The river flows through the city and accidents occur now
and then: and as there seemed to be men enough on the bank
to do whatever was needed, this man was thinking of leaving
and hurrying on home. But he saw that the efforts to save the
boy were not very successful, and he flung off his coat, plunged
into the water, and rescued his own son.
That man from Rochester is unknown to me by name. I
simply heard the story, and it seems to me one to be passed on.
' 1 should like to find that Rochester man, and if the story is true,
let him tell it to the manhood of the world.
Horace Mann was once advocating an expensive school re
form, and met with opposition. "It would be worth its cost,"
aaid Mr. Mann, "if it saved one boy."
His judiciaus associates reproved him for a remark so ex
travagant and absurd.
"I meant," said Mr. Mann, quietly, "it would be worth it if
he were my boy."
There was no answer to that.
No expense and effort are excessive if we makejife safer and
sweeter and more wholesome for our own boys and girls.
And they, boys and girls, are all ours.
TIME TO CHECK THIS WASTE
WHILE the Columbia rolls unused to the sea the Eastern
Oregon State Hospital is heated by means of coal
shipped in from Wyoming and Is now' faced with in
creased, charges for the electricity used. So radical is the ad
vance in rates asked by the Pacific Power & Light Co. that the
state has contemplated a coal burning generator of its own
in order to escape an undesirable, increase in the maintenance
EITHER GERMANY OR FRANCE MUST PAY ,
ITIIER Germany must pay for the damage inflicted on
French territory during the war or France herself must
bear that burden. This is the reason why the French
are moving in forceful manner to make Germany comply with
tne treaty terms, lnis is not an academic question with the
French. The question is a practical one and relates to' whether
the victor or the vanquished shall pay the. damages. Having
stood firm at Verdun and suffered the tortures of hell for four
years the French are not in a mood to be lenient. For this they
are to De pardoned.
Some people in this country have the view Germany should
be treated gently qn the subject of an indemnity.. They forget
tnat just to tne extent Germany is let off to that extent is France
penalized. . -
OUR REPUTATION IS PROVING EXPENSIVE '
rry Ah plan to have the Commercial Association exercise a cen-
sorship over drives, conducted in this city is extremely time
ly and cannot fail to accomplish much good! There is
evidence that we are being overworked in the matter of drives.
Some of the quotas assigned to Pendleton have been out of all
proportion when compared to the quotas given other towns of
similar population, xnoi oniy tnat Dut we have been far ahead
of most places in the matter of completing our money raising
efforts. We subscribed our full amount to the Central Euro
pean fund months ago while in many towns over the country
money for that fund is still being received. On the Near East
Chinese relief our workers have nearly completed the quota
here and it is doubtful if any other place in the state has done
so well. In fact a meting to organize the state was held in Port
land only yesterday. , '
During the war Umatilla county established a splendid rep
utation in the matter of raising war funds. In part this was due
to the prosperity and generosity of the people and in part to the
iact we nad a very elncient organization m which the public
placed full faith. The people acquired the habit of giving and
f accepting committee ratings without quibble. During war
Time tnat was a good state of affairs and no apologies are neces
sary. But the situation permits of abuse and we should not
have our people imposed upon merely because outside workers
una tnis an easy field for their operations.
Let the censors get busy.

FROM THE PEOPLE
INDIANS SHOW COUITESY
' Kamiah, Idaho,
March 2, 1921.
Editor East Oregonian:
This has become a habit with me so
I will keep It up by writing another
letter. "ot that there is any particu
lar news, for It I told about the weath
i ryit would be . a duplicate of the
weather In Pendleton; namely that the
snow has melted and it is raining again
and the mud is well, dont ask me
to describe It further for 1 am a mln
irter In good and regular standing and
I can't use the language fit to describe
the mud and still maintain .that stand
ing. What I wished to tell you about
Is a case of genuine Indian courtesy..
When I arrived at this place, Kamiah,
Idaho, a committee met those coming
at the depot and assigned each to some
home to be entertained during tne lime
of our stay. I was went to the home of
Caleb McAfee an elder of the church.
We white people have a formality of
giving some one the freedom of the
rlty with a big key that wouldn't un
lock anything. This Christian Indian
took me in and save me the place at
the head of his table with the right to
return the thanks for the meal or to
ask some one else to do it Then each
morning and evening I am given the
privilege and honor to lead the family
worship and cull on any one present to
lead In prayer or do that myself. These
are things that are done by the head
of the family alone In ordinary times,
but on occasions like this are given to
a visitor. The meetings here are going
on nicely and will continue through
Thursday of this week. In such meot-j
Ings It is a custom to allow at each
service one minister to lead and one t'
do the preaching. Being able to speak
the Indian language I am given my
turn just as any of the Indian minis
ters. So far 1 have taken my turn at
leading and preaching.

SAI,E.f. March 2. (A. P.) The
governor today vetoed five bills and
signed thirteen, disposing of all left by
the legislature. Among bins vetoed
was one providing for the appointment
of a commissioner for co-operative
marketing of meats, and while ap
proving the purpose of the bill, that of
getting producer and consignor closer
together, the governor thought It
would not effect this but that fees on
livestock to pay the expenses of the
commissioner would be an added bur
den which the consumer ultimately
would have to bear. Re signed a bill
levying a cent tax on motor fuel oils.

But Daddy, Just what Is an inau

"An inauguration into office Is the
ceremony accompanying the taking of
the oath of office. When the President

office and swears to uphold his duties

queried the boy, eager to hear all
about the event which he was to wit
"It Is a rule that on the March 4th
succeeding the election ot a President,
he shall be-Inaugurated Into office but
this has not always been followed. Nor
have all Inaugurations-taken place in
Washington. George Washington, took
his oath of ofAce for his first term' on
April 30. 1789, In old City Hall, New
York.- He was Inaugurated for his
second term on March 4th. 179J. in
Philadelphia which was the seat of

Thomas Jefferson was the first Presi
dent to take his o'ath of office In the
nation's now capital Washlneton.

quietly sworn Into office-with all the
unpretentious simplicity that marked
the new reign of Democracy. Four of
our Presidents were Inaugurated Into

March came on a Sunday. They were:
Monroe, for his second term. 1821;
Taylor, JS49; Hayes, 1877. and Wilson
191T. At the time of Hayes" election
there was some discussion and doubt
about his actual election. One party
concjrlrred Hayes' opponent.. Mr. Tl!
den. the successful candidate, but the
Republicans who were In power at the
time insisted tnat Hayes had- rarried
the vote. Fearing, however, that Mr.
Tilden would attempt forcible posses

took a private ontft of.orriro on fiat

mal Inauguration ceremony did not
