The Candidates for Governor VffHEN a candidate for public office makes a campaign promising what he will do if elected, it is fitting and proper that the voter examine the public records to ascer tain whether or not the candidate's record squares with his campaign promises. In the present campaign Candidate Pierce professes to be the apostle of lower taxes. Mr. Pierce's Record Of the $9,376,000 of state taxes for 1922, Mr. Pierce specifically approved of $8,564,039. This is 92 per cent of the total. Mr. Pierce had no opportunity to vote on the other S per cent, as he was not a membtir of the legislature when it was Up for vote. , He voted for 97 per cent of all tax appropriation bills of the 1919 session of the legislature, and for all the appropriation bills of the special session of 1920. In the last few years he voted for 189 salary increases. He voted against the bills to consolidate the state bureaus and commission);. Measured by every standard, Mr. Pierce is the most consistent little tax booster the state of Ore gon ever had. Mr. OllcotCs Record He introduced a change in the itate secretftry's report which has saved the :tate many thousands of dollars since 1912. His renovation of the peniten tiary savrid the state nearly half million, dollars He secured funds for a training school building for the Boys' In stitute without a single dollar or additional taxes. He is the originator of the Ore gon Blue Sky Law, which saves the Oregon people millions of dollars annually. He was responsible for the stopping of junketing trips by state officials at state expense. He secured the passage of a budget law, effecting large econ omies in the state government which could not otherwise be accomplished. The change In the State Ses sions Law, recommended by him, saves the state $10,000 a year. He has been universally com mended for the excellence of his official appointments. He has taken the first real con structive step in the equalization of the state tax situation by the appointment of a committee of experts to investigate and report to the legislature the entire scope of the tax problem irl this state, thus assuring that any changes to be made will be made along sane, conservative and constructive lines, which give far more prom ise of securing results than dem agogic bewailing and idle cam paign promises such as are being made by the non-partisan candi date of the Democratic party, especially in the light of his rec ord as the champion tax producer of the state of Oregon.

PROMINENT PORTLAND EDUCATOR IS HONORED JOSEPH A. HILL At a recent meeting of representa Ives of several non-sectarian and Pro testant private Bchools held in Port land, Joseph A. Hill, president of Hill Military Academy, was elected ex 3cutive secretary of a permanent or ganization formed on that occasion. Mr. Hill, in addressing the delegates, said: "Our private schools are en dangered by the measure known as the 'compulsory educational bill,' which will come before the voters this November. We have given our best thought and effort and years of un tiring devotion to the cause of educa tion and now all our work would be swept away In the flood that is direct ed at the private schools. "Oregon already has a compulsory educational law. Why should this new measure be necessary? Private schools such as the Hill Military aca demy and others on the list of those to be affected use practically the same books and courses of study as do pub lio schools. But we have smaller classes and can give more Individual attention to the pupils. To do away with our schools would be to Increase the taxpayers' burdens materially for :t would take millions of dollars to build extra public schools, equip them and provide them with teachers. In iddltlon It would destroy the means of living of hundreds of our teachers and jmployes. We teach Americanism most loyally and our patriotic exer cises dally inspire our pupils with irlde in their country and a respect .'or authority." Voters, Do You Understand? That the so-called compulsory education bill, on the November ballot, would close every private school of grammar grade in Ore gon? That It wnuld deprive parents of the right to send children to any religious school or non-sec-' tarlan school privately operated In Oregon? That It would confiscate mil lions of dollars worth of prop erty without cause, now devoted to private school work? That It would add more than $1,000,000 annually in taxes to the taxpayers by throwing sev eral thousand pupils Into public schools, for whom buildings would be necessary? That It violates the sacred rights of parents to train their children as they deem best, by robbing them of their constitu tional right to attend privately operated schools where religious thought Is featured or to a non sectarian school, such as Hill Military academy? Education Bill Unnecessary. The so ( ailed ronipulMiry education bill It unnecessary, nrrordtng to many Hided opinions, because On-con ul ready has such a law. It Is working well. Is fair all around why change It? mmmmmmwf 1 mm' "M? Why Stir Up Strife? The socalled compulsory education bill, on the November 1 ballot, hat alrt.uly Ktirred up much religious strife Why make It a law and con tinue llils harmony destroying program that can do to good? Oregon will not disgrace her self among her sister states of j the nation. The trend is now strongly against the so-called educational bill. Men and wom en are begining to understand it and to what ends of suspicion 'and civil friction it would lead. Except for a few, blinded by zeal and others who remain mis led by the arguments of propon , ents, voters are turning against (the measure. This anti senti ment is due to grow greater with each day between now and elec tion, and the school bill will be severely beaten November 7. 1 Editorial Hood River Glacier. i Old and Young Patriots Unite in Ceremony tL- X I . vv-; ?? v I Alflv- " ' "'-isfva. G. A. R. and Hill Military Academy Cadets Salute the Flag. One of the features at Hill Military academy recently was a patriotic ceremony in which the honored guests were prominent members of ' the Grand Army of the Republic. The tiniest cadets and the elderly heroes of the Civil war united in the service. These inspiring ceremonies are frequent occurences at the academy in Portland. AmoDg the juniors were throe little lads whose mother passed away a few months ago. The father who lives in California could not leave his business to care for them and so sent them to the Hill Military academy saying, "Keep them through the grades and high school." The private schools of Oregon are carefully caring for many orphans and half orphans who would be most directly injured If the so-called compulsory educational measure should become a law. For that reason many taxpayers are working to defeat that measure. In addi tion if adopted the bill would cause a great increase in taxes as the private school children, numbering nearly 8,000, would have to be cared for in public Institutions and schools. It is necessary to raise this additional amount by special levy for the following reasons: To pay bonded indebtedness and interest thereon and District warrants and interest thereon.
