THE BOARDMAN MIRROR
BOARDMAN. MORROW COUNTY, OREGON FRIDAY OCTOBER 24, 1924
DAWES HAS SCHEME
Impartial Commission Held the
Chief Reliance for Soil
Portland, Or. (Special). Common
sonae will solve the problems of the
American farmer, just as it has open
ed the way for rehabilitation of Eur
ope, according to Charles G.. Dawes,
republican vice-presidential candidate,
in a recent speech.
General Dawes would apply the
remedy of common-sense in much the
same way it was administered in the
European situation. He urged a com
mission, non-political, competent and
strictly non-partisan in its makeup.
He said the situation in agriculture
Is now comparable to the dilemma in
which European industry found itself
and with which the reparations com
mission had to grapple, after five
years of futile bickering and with
Europe on the brink of chaos.
John W. Davis, head of the demo
cratic ticket, has sniffed at the Dawes
agricultural scheme and referred
slightingly to "moth balls" in con
nection with it. But this was as noth
ing compared to what critios said of
an expert commission to untangle
European affairs. One prominent
man said the plan was like prescrib
ing a pill to cure an earthquake.
But General Dawes was equal to
that sneer and said he had always
held the opinion that common sense
is a universal remedy, whether given
in the form of a pill or taken as a
The commission the President is
about to appoint, it was admitted,
would meet with many difficult situ
ations and in order to get results
worth while, it would have to be
divorced absolutely from politics, it
was said. General Dawes held it an
economic problem and not a political
question at all.
He pointed out the disparity in earn
ing capacity of agricultural and in
dustrial portions of the population and
Uun'.ied specifically upon the situa
tion not only of the beef, wheat, fruit
and cotton growers but of the whole
t ody of farmers throughout the nation.
"The idea of an economic, non
partisan and impartial commission,
which the president has announced he
will appoint to suggest a plan for
legislative and other relief," he said,
"is to have the subject impartially
and competently considered from all
"There is at present no concensus
of either economic, agricultural or
political opinion behind any specific
remedy. It has not been possible to
secure, for any proposed plan of re
lief, endorsement of all the leading
"The commission plan is the only
one, as I see it, by which this great
agricultural problem of the nation
can receive a common-sense consider
ation, free from political poison.
"The experts' plan in Europe was
accepted because settled public opin
ion demanded itj acceptance and any
government which had opposed its
acceptance would have been over
thrown by public orJnion.
"There come crises so great in na
tional affairs that by common con
sent there is a turning away from
political quack doctors. It seems to
me that such a crisis is confronted in
the agricultural situation."

Washington, D. C Plans for the

MRS. FERGUSON WINS
IN SUPREME COURT
Austin, Texas. Mrs. Miriam A.
Ferguson, democratic candidate for
governor of Texas, is eligible to hold
office and she has a right to have her
name printed on the ticket, the su
preme court decided.
The question was raised by Charles
M. Dickson, San Antonio, who brought
suit in the 53d district court of Austin
for a writ of injunction to enjoin Mrs.
Ferguson's name from appearing on
the official ballot on the ground that
she was ineligible to hold the office
of governor on account of her sex.
The injunction was denied and the
case was appealed to the supreme
court, which took it under submission
last Saturday. '
All six questions raised in the in
junction suit were decided in favor of

In these dnys of historical
movies all fnns know thnt the
hero may kneel, receive the tap
of his sovereign's sword on his
shoulders and nrlse "Sir
Knight." They may not know
that the ceremony is called an
accolade, a noun derived from
the Latin "ad collum." These
two words mean on or near the
neck, where the sword taps
must fall in a properly admin
istered knighting. The pronun
ciation is "ak-ko-laid," with ac
