tion of Mr. Jordon, who knows more people in California than any
ten men in the state, and knows whereof he speaks.
Johnson's administration would be "characterized by insin
cerity, ruthlessness, autocratic action, demagogic proceedings,
class legislation and disregard of constitutional direction," de
clares Mr. Jordan. "His inability to deal with great questions re
quiring broad-minded statesmanship and constructive ability
would result in confusion, turmoil and disaster".
Johnson's record as a republican is epitomized by Mr. Jordan
as follows: In 1910, he registered as a republican to run for gov
ernor. In 1912 he registered as a progressive, and prevented the
rpniiblirans of California from votine for Taft. In 1914 he reeis-

by so-called non-partisan laws, which the people defeated by ref
erendums. In 1915 he amended the presidential primary act so
that any one calling for a republican ballot can vote for repub-
Jican delegates, regardless of the party he i3 registered in. In
1916 he registered as a progressive, filched the senatorship from
a republican, and failed to throw his support to Hughes, thus aid
ing in losing the presidency to the republican party. In 1918, he
registered as a republican, and in 1920 asks the republicans to
elect him president.
Johnson's "constructive" record as governor is assailed by
Mr. Jordan as follows: Johnson, When elected, found $2,000,000

counts, one of obtaining money by
fl?e pretensps and three charging lar
eeny by bailee, were returned against

a precipitate flight from this city. 'aonroDriations bill increased from $13,000,000 a year to $27,000.-
000. In a period when population increased 35 per cent, assessed
valuation 00 per cent, state expenses increased 170 per cent.
As to breaking the railroad control, Jordan declares that the
railroads are better satisfied now than before Johnson started
grandstanding after them. In-no way did Johnson assist' the
women to secure votes, refusing to take a stand. California's
highway development was inaugurated by Johnson's predecessor,
who left a bond issue of $18,000,000 for Johnson to spend. His
.reform of the ballot consisted in preventing republicans from
placing the name of Taft on the ballot and permittng democrats
to vote in republican primaries.
' Mr. Jordan might have supplemented Johnson's California
jrecord by his record in the senate, where he was a left-handed
.'supporter of the war, an. obstructionist and a champion of the
Bolshevik", an opponent of the peawe treaty and an avowed enemy
of the League of Nations. He is the most shining example of the
unscrupulous, self-seeking demagogue in public life, appealing
under the specious plea of Americanism" to all the avowed and
latent enemies of the republic and rallying to his support the un-
American and foreign elements of class hatred, discontent and
i That such a candidate Is seriously considered as a republican
nominee for the presidency indicates the decadence of party pol

TO FIGHT II. C. L., TLANT A GARDEN.
While the individual may be powerless to lessen materially
the cost of many essentials that go to make the high cost of living
a burden, he can by economy, industry and thrift contribute ma
terially to its reduction and if enough individuals solve their
problems, they aid in solving those of the nation.
rotatocs and garden produce are sky-high yet it is within
the province of every individual to have his own garden and raise
his own potatoes and produce at a nominal cost. If he has not
land enough for a garden, there are hundreds of vacant lots that
can be had for the asking.
I During the war, nearly everyone had a "war garden", and
,tne gardens contributed materially to solving the household prob
lems of food and expenditures, as well as the national problem of
feeding-army and allies. Today these gardens are neglected
Comparatively few people are industrious enough or frugal
enough to have gardens and of course they pay the penalty al
ways paid lor curtailing production, to the profiteers.
I Workers of all classes today receive higher wages and labor
snorter hours than ever in history. They have more leisure for
garden work, but apparently less inclination to do it. It is easier
to cuss the government for high prices than to go to work to
cut down those prices by increasing production.
Salem needs peace gardens more than it needed war gardens
.Produce of all kinds brings prices prohibitive to the man of fam
ily with small income. With sugar at 25 cents and berries and
fruit in proportion, there will be little home-canning or preserv
ing, jo make up tne deficiency, the home garden must come to
,1he rescue, and the wise and prudent man will utilize his leisure
hours in reducing the high cost of living by planting a garden.
If he fails to do so, he has only himself to blame, when he finds
Jumsell in the conscienceless grip of the food profiteer.
The Portland Oregonian cooperated in the nation-wide effort
to economize on news print as usual with 110 page edition Sundav
wasting enough paper to supply all the country papers in Ore
gon lor a month.
When enough people in Salem can be found to pay a dollar
a minute in ten-minute clips for airship flights from dewy morn
to shadowy eve, it bespeaks the prosperity of the people, if it
does not indicate thrift and frugality.
Almost as many 5 by 4 supreme court decisions as there are
3 by 2 congressional verdicts on the management of the war.
Poindexter bases his hopes on "breaks" in the convention,

t , SPRING CHESTNUTS
I fain would chant a song to spring, in soul-inspiring words;
but of that theme one cannot sing and not refer to birds. And
birds nre but a false alarm when all is said and done; if you have
lived u)on a farm, you know they eat up mon. They scratch up
seeds, and care no hoot that seedstuffs cost like sin; they spoil a
lot of priceless fruit by recking holes therein. I cannot spring a
vernal wheeze that with due passion throbs, but I must boost the
springtime breeze that fans the thingumbobs. That lovely breeze
along the street is smashing things today; it's spoiled a thousand
miles of wheat by blowing soil away. It whoops and blithers till
it's hoarse, and, while we stand and gaze, it may attain cyclonic
force, and kill a score of jays. I can't transcribe my blissful
dream of spring and all its joys, without some mention of the
stream that makes a babbling noise. Said stream has overflow
ed its banks and drowned a thousand sheep, and farmers stand,
in mournful ranks, and rear and swear and weep.
LOVE and MARRIED LIFE
By the Noted Author
IDAII McGLONE GIBSON
ever Rusty heard that second kind
of chirp he was always careful to
find some errand that took him away
You see, Rusty Wren was not so
orderly as his wife. Often he scatter
ed things about the house in a very
careless fashion. For Instance, if he
happened to notice a bit of moss or
a buri- clinging to his coat, Just as
likely as not he would brush it off
and let It fall upon the floor. And
when Mrs. Rusty found anything like
I that in her cottage, she always knew
how it came mere.
Rusty sometimes remarked that it
was a good thing he didn't smoke.
"How would you like it if I drop
ped bits of tobacco, or ashes, and
maybe burnt matches for you to
pick up?" he asked his wife.
"Tou couldn't come inside my
house if you used tobacco," she al-waj-s
replied. And she would get quite
excited at the mere thought of such
an untidy habit
And then Rusty would smile but
he always took good care not to let
his wife see him.
"Don't worry!" he would say, if
she became too stirred up. "I've never
smoked yet and I never expect to."
One can see that Rusty Wren was
somewhat of a tease. And as it usual
ly happens with people who amuse
themselves at the expense of others,
there came a time when Rusty's
teasin? landed him in trouble.
One day after he had come home
ffpm an excursion to the pasture (he
seldom strayed so far from home as
that!) Mrs. Rusty began sniffing Jhe
air. Her nose would have wrinkled
only it couldn't, because it was so
hard. And it seemed to her that he
had a guilty manner.
"I declare," she said, "I believe
you've been smoking." And she start
ed to scold so angrily that Rusty
Wren knew she must be in a temper.
Seeing signs of trouble, Rusty be
gan to fidget. And he moved about so
uneasily that his wife was all the sur
er of his guilt. She stopped right in
the middle of her scolding to say, "I
"Perhaps you do," Rusty admitted
"But it's certainly not tobacco
"Ah!" she exclaimed. "Then you've
been smoking corn-silk, or hayseed
and that's almost as bad."
But Rusty said that it must be the
smoke of a pine stump that she no
ticed. "Farmer Green is burning- some
old stumps in the pasture," he ex
plained. "And I flew through a
cloud of it."
Just then he happened to notice a
bit of something or other clinging to
one of his tail feathers. And though
his wife was looking straight at him,
he flicked the tiny scrap upon the
floor, without thinking what he was
"There you go again!" Mrs. Rusty
When cried. "Here I've Just finish
ed cleaning the house and you're lit
tering it all up! You don't care how
much work you make for me." And
she pounced upon the brownish bit,
intending to pick it up and throw
out of the house.
Rusty had already decided that he
had better go. away from home for a
little while, until things were pleas
anter, when his wife suddenly faced
about and fixed him with her glitter

A majority of them do," I said.
"There are women, ltkn .tnhn1. DiofOH
of phlegmatic 'temperaments, who go
ii in tranquility, marking out new
avenues of interest for themselves and
keeping their own lives separate from
the life that they live with their hus
band. There are other women whose
sole comfort and hope Is in their
children. These women are like Ruth
Gaylord. I think Ruth Is happier
now that she is separated from Bob
ble than she was before. There is still
another class like Helen. A woman
of this class is so desperately in love
with her husband that she is willing
to become slave, or a plaything, Just
as he wishes. This type of a woman Is
never happy, so more so than I, al

a smile, "gets us nowhere in par

"I beg your pardon, Charles. I

"Well, of course, I will go If you

asked. "Do you, too, Charles, think
that I want my own way to the ex

"No," answered Charles slowly,
"but I think you want your full share

"Oh," I said, a sudden light break

The more I think of it, the more I
think you are, but alas I must be

knew that what Charles had said was
true. If I could be insincere with
John, if I .could Just act as though I
believed everything he said and did

How often you have
wished that you could
indulge in the strenu

end of the week finds
you all in you are
tired, listless and lack
the energy to go out for
a vigorous walk or a

any other exercise that re
quires much physical exer

at a time when he should be
at his very best physically.
And he is growing old , not
