THAT NEW CENSUS
We see where Uncle Sam has
, totalled up the farm census he
has been taking for the last five
years, and we also find in it
many things of interest to Mau
pin citizens and residents of the
rural districts. It shows,, for in
stance, that there is still a drift
toward the cities but that the
lands are more and more coming
into the hands of working owners.
It also shows that during ' the
five-year period between 1920
and 1925 the number of farms in
the U. S. decreased from 6,448,
343 to 6.371,617. The number
operated by managers decreased
from 68,449 to 40,755, or better
than 40 per cent. The number
of farm tenants increased from
2,454,804 to 2,484,528.
These figures do not show that
our farms ' are falling into the
hands of people who will not
work them but who will hire oth
ers to do so. Taking into ac
count the number of farms that
have been subdivided to make
room for growing cities, and' the
increased use of labor-saving
machinery, the figures show the
land and the owners still hang
togethar pretty well.
There seems to be no occasion
to worry any more over a short
age of labor on the farms. Pret
ty soon now the call will go out
for workers, and they will be
showing up from all four corners
of the country. The tiuto has
made it possible for them'to get
into the fields from the cities
without los3 of time or heavy
railroad fare, and they will be on
hand when the call goes forth,
you can re3t assurred of that.
LETS GET OUR SHARE
Over 12,000,000 people enjoyed
auto tours last season and they
spent over $710,000,000 on tour
ing and camping out. Another
season is now upon us and we
should be ready to get our share
of the vast sum, an even great
er sum than was spent last year,
that is soon going to be scattered
in every state in the union.
Special courtesy and hospitality
to the auto tourists will help a
great deal. Show them they are
welcome here, that we are glad
to have them stop in our midst,
if only for a few minutes, will go
far toward securing our share of
the vast sum tourists are now
starting to spend, and will spend
over a four-month period. We
may not hive everything they
want But whatever we do
have should be offered them in a
friendly and hospitable way
and they will not only do their
part of the spending but they
will carry on with them a good
word about the town and com
munity that will be worth more
to us than we may be able to
Mellon was criticised because
he guessed low on the income

would have happened to him if
he had guessed high.

Bob Bell On Vacation
usual even disposition has de
veloped knots; he has gotten so
he hates the sound of a train
whistle; hates to have anyone
ask about freight, or to sell a
ticket for McLennon. He be

to regain his equanimity has ask
for and been granted a vacation.
He left yesterday for Vancou-

that he will return feeling like
his former self.
Bob Bell has sworn off work;

Gate Open Saturday Night
In 1925 Oregon and Washington brought
in from the east of the Rocky Mountains,
live hogs ami pork products to the value
Jt is estimated that each year, Califor
nia consumes pork products to the value of
$50,000,000.00 of which 90 is brought in
from outside that state.
This money is being sent away from the
Pacific Boast territory because our farms
are not producing suflicicnt hogs to supply
the Pacific Coast market.
Here is a home market for a home pro
duct that is being overlooked. A few more
hogs on each farm will keep a lot of this
money in the west. Think it over.

Joe A. Graham, forest ranger,
writes The Times that the gate
across the bkynne roaa at
Clackamas lake will be opened at
8:00 o'clock next Saturday morn
ing, thus permitting fishermen
to visit Olallie lake.
That body of water should pro
vide excellent sport, as better
than 200,000 trout were liberated
therein last year and since then
the lake has been closed to fish
ermen. OUallie meadows are
situated 67 miles from Maupin,
and with the opening of the gate
above menioned autoists may
