thin, uliull we hcxltute for a moment
respond to the last rail th Victory
aberty Loan when we can do so by
cdglnn our credit, perhaps with some
ttle personal Inconvenience, sacrifice
f email discomfort?
The blood of the young manhood of
merloa In not now required. Thai
t:is generously given before the arml-
Ire wan signed, and now we may give
.inks that no more will be taken.
The rrcdlt and good faith of our
untry Ih at stake. We have won the
ar, and tho cost Is small compared
Hh what has been won. The men of
e Went with red blood In their vein
111 not need to be appealed to, because
oy will subscribe to thin last call of
Government us ungrudgingly as
ey did In t ho past. There are others.
.nwever, who may not be so keenly and
nseleritloriHly alive to the duty of re-
j onillng to the Nation's call, and It Is
P those that the women inut direct
telr most tint lrlns sfTorts.
This lust call Is truly a Victory Loan,
hat greater pride can men and we
en exuerlence than In cnntrlhnMn
o It? A Victory Boifd will be worth
ore than Its price expressed In dol
lars. Every one will be a badge testi
fying that tho holder has helped-his
sountry to fulfill its pldge to those
ho have been spared as well as those
(ho fcave made the supreme sacrifice

Dairymen are entitled to a fair pro
fit on their investment and labor, but
it is not fair to consumers of dairy
products to be taxed for wasteful pro
duction, comments the Oeegonian.
Dairymen are today testifying to the
value of scientific methods of produc
tion in cheapening the cost.
"In two years' time my cream
check has increased from $142 to
$187 a month from the same number
of cows," writes a Linn county mem
ber of the testing association. "My
cows increased in milk yield 30 as
f improved rations," and
"When fed your ratons cows
yielding 32 pounds of milk increased
to 42 pounds," are other reports of
Oregon dairymen.
Feeding, breeding, record-keeping
silos and testng marketing and bull
associations, are some of the cost pro
duction factors placed on a scientific
basis by dairymen co-operating with
the federal department of agricultur
al and the state agricultural college.
Some of the things done are send
ing 164 slacker cows to the butcher,
buying 11 pure bred bulls for associa
tion members, erecting 41 silos, pur
chasing 24 car loads of dairy feeds,
organizing three new testing asso
ciations, purchasing 74 pure bred
dairy cattle for association members
KINGS VALLEY, (Monday)
Special to the Enterprise) Burglars
entered the postoffice this morning
and after blowing the safe escaped
with the entire contents of their loot.
There were but few clues behind their
trail to give the officers any clue.
When Postmaster Tom Allen went
to the office this morning he discov
ered the door of the postoffice safe
in one corner of the room and the
safe in the other, while across the
length of the room were scattered un
important papers which had been in
the safe. The safe had been blown
with nitro and the men who did the
Kwork had been familiar with the work
The loss is not extremely large
There were in the ngighborhood of $50
worth of postal supplies, about $400
worth of war savings stamps and
some small change and about $2,000
in government war bonds. Besides
this loss there were a number of peo
ple who had sent their saving stamps
to the office for safe keeping. These
were also taken. The exact amount
of these stamps is not known but is
estimated at about $300. Sheriff Ge
latly of Benton county was notified
at once ,and he sent deputy Frank
Plunkett of Philamoath to the scene
and at this time Mr. Plunkett is or
ganizing for a systematic search for
the robbers. J
Mrs. Allen,w ife of the postmaster
and others of the town were awaken
ed about 2 o'clock this morning by the
noise of the explosion but the nature
of the noise was not known at the
time and created no excitement. How
the robbers escaped is not known but
it is believed that they arrived and
departed by automobile. There have
been other cases of shnilar robberies
reported from Clackamas county and
other sections in eastern Oregon and
it is believed that a gang of profes
sionals is touring the west and at
tempting to secure expenses while on
their vacation from some of the large
eastern cities, thinks the Corvallis
Courrier.

EASTER COMES APRIL 20.
Easter Sunday, the day of days in
Christian churches, will be celebrated
this year on April 20th or four Sun-J
days two Sundays ffcm next Sun
day. Easter will not fall as such a
late date again for five years. Pecu
liar as it may seem to' the layman,
action of the moon is the deciding fac
tor in fixing Easter Sunday. In ac
cordance with the decree of the Coun
cil of Nice, Easter Sunday is the first
Sunday after the full moon that falls
on the next after March 21; unless
this full moon happens on a Sunday,
then Easter is celebrated one week la
ter. The dates of all movable feasts
on the church calendar depend upon
the date of Easter.
Following are the dates of Easter
for the next five years: 1920, April
1; 1921, March 27; 1922, April 6;
1923 April 1; 1924 April 20; 1925
April1 12th.
The latest date on which Easter has
been celebrated since the year 1830
was April 25.This was in 1883. Three
timsesin ce then Easter has fallen on
April 23. These years were 1905,
1913, and 1916. The earliest Easter
which has been celebrated- for 40
years back is March 25, and this has
occurred only twice during that time
It was in the years 1883 and 1894.
The widest difference in two years
between the dates of Easter within
the last 40 years is 21 days. This oc
curred between the years 1888 and
1889 and between 1918 and 1919. In
1888 Easter was celebrated on April
1, and the following year on April 21
Last year Easter Sunday was March
31 and this year it is April 20.
