"Help win the war buy Liber
ty Until bond."
To vote agninst tho road lwinls is
virtually to say thnt the wItw
. voter knows more Uut the road
needs of the state than a larjre ma
jority of the Oregon kvtslalurv and
the entire Umatilla county delega
tion. Men like Speaker StanhYld, Iiar
rett, Stetwer. Ritner and Ilodgen
are not venal neither are they fool
ish. The so-called Paving Trust has
no strings on them, and they use
their thought works in connection
"with both private and public busi
ness. That all these men were in
strumental in getting the road bond
bill on the ballot and are now its
strong Bupporters, is pretty good
evidence that the measure is of
value to Umatilla county.

One of the little pleasantries of
the country newspaper Sme or
business people who do not adver
tise and other people who do not
even take the paper to be looking
for "free puff's."
Charley Barrett is one of the
most conscientious men and one of
the hardest workers that Umatilla
county has ever sent to the legisla
ture. He is a cautious man, not
given to unwise investmneta, and
led the fight against the Umatilla
county bonding measure. That he
now supports the state bond bill is
significant. To meet with Charley
Barrett's approval means that it
must needs be almost without a
flaw. We commend a careful pe
rusal of Senator Barrett's letter to
the Leader in another column. It
seems to us a conclusive answer to
the innuendo that the legislature
succumbed to the blandishments of
the Paving Trust.

Charles L. McNary, appointed to
the United States Senate by Gov
ernor Withycombe to succeed Sen
ator Lane, is a progressive Repub
lican and a former justice of the
Oregon supreme court, to which .he
was appointed by Governor West.
The selection of McNary mry be re
garded as quite a shrewd stroke of
politics on the part of Governor
Withycombe, who has stalwart lean
ings but thus makes a bid for pro
gressive approval. However, there
is no reason to doubt that McNary
will make a good senator, and in
such event the governor is entitled
to all the political advantage he
may "derive from the appointment,
having demonstrated, that he is with- '
out prejudice. "
