T IS reported that when Senator Harrison tore the hide off
Gcorce Hnrvev the irreconcilable senators "sat aghast."
That is strange because the United slates senate should be
used to words of criticism bv this time. Last year it was open
season for the critics and what they did not do in the way of as
sailing the then president of the United States Is not worth not
ing. Thee was no let up even when Woodrow Wilson was al
most at the roint of death. If it was riirht and proper for sen

a noble peace that would endure why should not a senator ex
press his honest convictions about the new ambassador to Eng
land. Tat Harrison said nothing about Col. Harvey that is not
true and known to be true. He could have said much more and
Hill been far short of the mark set last year by those who cast
their schafts of venom at our stricken war president. Having
themselves used every known variety of poison gas for political
ends why should the irreconcilables sit agTiast when one of their
puppets like Harvey gets a dose of his own medicine?

N AN address before the American farm bureau Herbert
Hoover expressed a fear that our present freight rates may
soon move cur graneries to foreign shores. He pointed out
that it costs SO cents a bushel to ship grain from Missouri to
New Yt.rk, while grain may be shipped from Argentine by wa
ter for 10 tents a bushel. The Inland Empire wheatman, how
i vcr. should not be penalized by our high transcontinental
freight rales. The normal method of. exporting our surplus
wheat is by water from our northwest ports and the ocean is as
free to American commerce as to that of Argentine. Whether
or rot our present ocean rates are what they should be is a sub
ject the farm bureau might investigate with profit.

THE charge made by union officials that one big reason the
railroads are in financial straits is that they have been pay
ing too much for coal and too much for steel is worth look
ing into. It is set forth that during 1920 the roads paid $700,
000,000 for coal and over a billion dollars for steel. A point
worth considering is whether or not the same men who control
the railroads do not also own coal mines and big blocks of steel
t omoration stock and are therefore inclined to milk the rail
roads for the benefit of the other corporations. Color is given j K day or two w t rodp on a
this suspicion by the fact the steel trust which has not reduced

fact that there is another side to the story and this feature of
the situation likewise deserves attention.

TRAVELING salesmen w ho during the war maintained a pol
icy of service and courtesy find now that they were making
an investment in good will which is bringing them returns
in dollars and cents. There was a time when orders were so
numerous and supplies so scant that the salesman's duty scarce
ly extended beyond excuses for nort-delivery. But times have
changed, and the dollar which is beginning to buy more than it
did is also a dollar to be competed for. Oregon Journal.
The allies have told Germany what sort of an indemnity is
wanted and the French view is that the next step is for the Ber
lin government to begin payments. In suggesting a further con
ference on this subject are we not "meddling in European af
fairs"? Is not the suggestion for a new conference an intima
tion that the indemnity figures should be reduced? If we do
not think the indemnity too high w hat is the need of a further

The "Most beautiful Car in SZmerica,
Hie One True Test
The one sure way to determine actual motor car value is
by a thorough, exhaustive demonstration.
In the show room, you can tell at a glance whether a car
satisfies your artistic demands. The next step, than, is to
et out on the road and discover what lies under the hood.
Power, Epeed and Endurance are qualities of action that
only a ride can establish.
We suggest just this course in judging any Paige 6-66
model. We go one step farther, however, and invite you
to compare it with any other car at any price on the
American market. Take the comparative demonstrations
first. Then inspect the price tags.
The Paltre-liaytona model, remember, is the ntk car speed
champion of the world. And the motor that you will find
unilur a - hood belong to PulKe and Paige alone. ' Don't
forget that. i
