Southern Oregon cun learn val
uable lessons from this year's ac
tivity of the Pacific Northwest
Touring association. This great
association covering in its terri
tory the Pacific northwest of the
United States and British Colum
bia in Canada, has during 1320
carried out successfully an adver
tising campaign in which the
whole field was Impartially in
cluded. There was no hint of
favoritism to any section, there
was no taint of "toadying" to fi
nancially powerful or populous
districts to the disadvantage of
weaker noighbors. The reason Is
simple, In the fact that nowhere
is the many different pamphlets
published and distributed was
there a mention of n locality. All
advertising was general, but the
way was opened for more detailed

unnecessary. However, I wish to
add a word relative to what seems
to be a trend In education in which
all ura vitally concerned. Our
school system is undergoing an
important und necessary change.
Advanced steps are being taken
from time to time, the process
seems slow, but the time should
not be far distant when the arbi

matter of concern to the state -at
lift-go as well as to the individual,
who under present conditions can
not give It the attention it deserves
and which was formerly possible
and necessary. The management
ot school affairs, except possibly
certain community and civic
! terests, should be in the hands of
a county board of about five mem
bers whose business it should be
to establish schools, erect build
ings, employ teachers, secure nec
essary supplies, etc.
"The little school district em
ploying one teacher and managed
by a local board did very well in

THE MARBLE CAVES
Despite the fact that the roads
and trails to the Josephine caves
are hard traveling and hold out
small Inducement for the "tender
foot" to try them out, over 300
tourists have so far this season
visited the famous caverns. This
year It Is thought that the num
ber making the trip will surpass
the 900 mark of last season.
Many ot the tourUts are from
other states. Only 28 have made
the trip from Grants Pass this
year. Medford has found out that
the caves are In existence and 35
from that city have made the trip.
Some of the visitors were from
Alaska, a lai'gt) nuinBer irom Port
land and many from California.
A large number of other states
are also represented.
A complete register of all those
who made the trip during June
and July ot this year Is kept at the

ASHLAND COMES OUT AHEAD
IN WAGE AND RATE INCREASE
While a keen Interest Is being
taken here In the interviews com
ing over the wires to the Tidings
from various transportation ex
perts and economists; some claim-
ing that the railroad rate Increase
will cause a revelry of high prices;
others claiming prices will not be
materially affected;. Ashland has
a complacent feeling that it is
coining out on top of tbe heap in
the railroad wage and rate raise
For while prices will of course
rise in Ashland it they do else
where, Ashland's biggest payroll,
the Southern Pacific, will be In
creased by a sum by the wage
award which will more than off
set minor rises In prices so fur as
the average prosperity of the com-,
muntty is concerned.
Because ot the fuct that exact
data on the amounts ot wage in
creases have not reached the local
division point as yet, the exact
amount which the Ashland pay
roll will be Increased is not known.
That It will run Into an Increase
ot well over $10,000 a month
