THE SEVEN HOUR DAY.
Mr. Gompers, President of the American Federation of
Labor, proposes a 7-hour day.
Who would have thought such a proposition would be
seriously made, at least while the war is on?.
Who would have thought such a proposition would be
seriously made at least while the war is on?
Out here on the Pacific Coast we are building ships with
three 8-hour shifts per day.
In some plants controlled by union labor the men insist
on working overtime at time and one-half and double-pay.
Of course, Mr. Gompers would put into effect the 7-hour
day at the same wage now paid for 8-hours.
The advantage to the unions of a 7-hour day will be the
excuse for more overtime at pay-and-a-half , or double-pay.

The North Dakota Farmers' Non-Partisan League has
organized in staid old state of Maine. This same organ
ization is spreading its socialist propaganda over west
ern states.
Tentative platform adopte dfor Maine provides:
"Government ownership and operation of public utili
ties, especially of railroads, coal, iron and copper mines,
telegraph, telephone and water powers (socialism.)
"To lower cost of living government should regulate
prices, and to make such regulations effective, advocate
national, state or city ownership of grain elevators, stock
yards, storage warehouses, flour mills, fuel yards and
other agencies of distribution." (No mention of hov to
reduce prices or lower cost of farm produce or grain which
is left under private control. Simply political piracy to
buy votes.)
"Farm and loan law to be so amended as to make it
more within reach of all farmers and of all farm purposes.
(Farmers are already axtended government loans on long
time and low intreest, a privilege granted no other indus
rty.) "All taxes to be assessed in actual land values exclusive
of farm improvements.All land held out of use to be tax
ed at its full rental value." (Single tax.)
, "All war profits and all incomes in excess of $10,000 to
be conscripted by the government while while the war
lasts." (Would soon destroy all business.)
The leaders behind this movement are not farrmes,
neither are they business men, they are professional poli
ticians and agitators capitalizing the words "farms" and
"non-prtisan" to promote a new political movement which
offers rich political plunder.
They propose individualism for the farmer, socialism j offi
lor the masses.
Once established, their socialistic program and how
long would the farmer be allowed to own his farm land.
The same leaders seeking new fields of exploitation
would they cry, "the state must own the land to protect
the people from the land barons" (farmers).
Farmers beware ! You are playing with dynamite, but
you don't know it.
You are backing a movement which will eventually
make you a tenant instead of a land owner.
You are destroying the very foundation principals of
our government.
'PUBLIC SCI U)OLNOTES
Miss lloham, the musical super
visor of the Normal, under the au
spices ot the local rarem-i eacners
Association, wil, give a "Spring Sin"
at the Isis Theatre Thursday, April

eral selections. An admission fee of
ten cents will be charged, the pro
ceeds going toward buying some
drums for the Independence School
Orchjestra. Every Vitizen is ufged
to attend and help a worthy cause as
school orchestra is quite an asset
to a community.
At the Parent-Teachers Associa
tion Tuesday afternoon, the following
program was given: Schubert's
Serenade by the girls in the Eighth
Grade, a nianologue by Katherine
Skinner, and a dialogue by Ruth
Dickson, Gerald and Frederick Hew
itt. Each number was a credit to
those who took part. Mr. J. V. B.
Butler from the Normal, was the
speaker for the afternoon. He gave
an interesting and clear-cut review
of the cantonement at Camp Lewis
from which place he had recently re
turned. He spoke in the highest
terms possible of the life of the sol
dier boys there.
The Junior Thrift Stamp campaign
for March closed with Carl Byers,
Alice Baker and Elizabeth Mixer in
the lead. Frederick Hewitt sold the
most stamps.of any child under eight.
Every one is going around the build
ing with a "lean and hungry look"this
week, as the soup kitchen has closed
down. Tuesday Mrs. Davis gave a
dinner to the girls who assisted her
in the kitchen..
FOURTH CLASS POSTMASTER
EXAMINaiiuN
The United Sates Civil Service com
mission has announced an examina
tion to be held at Corvallis, Oregon, on
April 27th, 1918, as a result of which
it is expected to make certification to
fill a contemplated vacancy in the po
sition of fourth-class
Buena Vista, Oregon,
cancies as they may occur at th
even the cows have, failure or suc
cess depends than any other.
Some dairymen think that beeuo
they have grade cows it will not RV
to get a good bull. And many other
dislike to pay the price of a pure
bred, but no improvement can come
from the use of grade bulls. A good,
strong, well-bred bull, with high-producing
ancestors, should be selected
for the grade herds as well as for the
pure-bred herds. Heifers from cows
retained in the herd because to their
high production will not equal me
average of their dams unless the sire
used is much better than the cowst.lt
is profitable to raise the heifers
f rum th het nroducini; cows, but
this by no means solves the problem
of petting a higher proportion of
good producers in the new generation.
At this time when many farmers
are laying the foundation for their
future herds in Oregon is well to re
member that only the best bulls
should ho used.

THE SHEEP SHEARING INDUSTRY
There is no law regulating the time for sheep shearing
and climatic conditions of the western wool growing
states make it difficult.
E. S. Bartlett. President of the Sheep Shear ji's Union,
in the American t'heep Breeder for January ask-) co-operation
of flock masters.
He asks that they have their corrals in order, their
plants overhauled, and dry sheds wherever.possible to help
in bad weather.
Shearing starts in Arizona, New Mexico, California and
Nevada and then works north. Mr. Bartlett cautions
against starting too soon. '
Shearing in bad weather when ice forms causes suffer
ing and cruelty and should be discouraged and laws
against cruelty rigidly enforced.
jl he courts have held that turning shorn sheep out into
storms and freezing weather is violation of law and im
posed heavy fines.
KILLING WATER POWER DEVELOPMENT
The prof essional eastern highbrow conservationists
have killed all water power development for ten years and
still keep it up.
We are burning millions of tons of coal and letting mil
lions of water power run to waste to ratify socialistic
idealists.
The bill before congress drafted by Pinchot et al admits
the need of enlisting private capital in developing the
wasting water powers.
Still it expects private capital to develop water power
enterprises for a limited period of years, the promoters to
receive their pay from a restricted income fbr that period,
at the end of which they have to turn the property over to
the examination, with the exception
that in a state where women are de
clared by stautute to be of full age
for all purposes at eighteen years,
women eighteen years of age on the
date of the examination will be ad
mitted. Applicants must reside within the
territory supplied by the post office
for which the examination is an
nounced. ' The examination is open to all citi
zens of the United States who can
comply with the requirements.
Application blanks, Form 175,"?, and
full information concerning the re-'
quirements of the examination can be
secured from the postmaster at the
place of vacancy or from the United
States Civil Service Commission,
Washington. D. C.
Applications should be properly ex
ecuted and filed with the Commission
at Washington. D. C. at the
practicable! date.
GOOD BULLS ONLY WII.I.
UPHOLD HERD PRODUCTION.
Of All Times This is Said to he Worst
for Buying and Using Grades
and Scrubs.
This is no time for a dairy farmer
who has to buy a herd bull to assume
that a scrub or grade bull, or a poor
bull of any kind, is good enough to
be used on his herd, says Prof, P. M
Brandt, of O. A. C. This is a critical
time for farmers who are selecting
breeding animals especially in the
dairy business.
The future of the hard depends
upon the kind of sire. An inferior
sire means inferior offsprings, even
though the cows be of the best Upon
the policy of selecting a sire with
better breeding back of him than
nd nnvone
get full particu
lars by calling on him. Another meet
ing will be held soon when an organ
ization will be perfected. The Enter
prise will give a fuller account of it
later.
