(Ibcrg Graphic)
V r u.wsptppers all over the
xuliy have been. raising tre
n ;ndous ry because of the fact
i n: the United States government
nrnishes printed envelopes to Us
.1 jUiKcti at les3 than cost and lt
t lias the printers over the country
c. nnot compete with them. The
prrers have been maintaining that
the government has no right, to en
ter into competition with them.
; Of course the newspapers are
wrong in this contention The gov
ernment is acting in the interests
of the public in reducing the coat
of living for everyone, is it noe? By
furnishing i tamped envelopes with
' printed return, card for the power
companies, public utilities of all
kinds, banks, business houses, etc..
the government is saving money for
these great institutitions and in turr
you, dear reader, have noticed n
doubt tremendous reductions ir
your light bills, telephone bills, gro
cery bills, etc Have yoo not!
v But ktis try the case a littlr
further. Admitting the right of thi
government to sell printed envel-
firm return rarria in nmntitinn !
with private printers, shall we take
the next step with you who are buy
ing your government printed envel
opes? Why not have the govern
ment furnish the electricity at less
than cost? Why not have the gov
ernment operate the telephone sys
tem at than cost? Why not
have the government act as food
and clothing distributors at less than
Ah, but you any someone would
have to pay for it all. True, broth
er, true! But how about these gov
ernment printed envelopes - which
you are using to send out your
monthly bills to the printers for
electricity, telephone tolls, groceries,
etc.? Doesn't someone pay for the
loss there? We wonder why it i
that the same sort of shoe cannot
be made to fit other, concerns as
well as the printing industry. We
have not heard of very many mil
lions being made by printers, but
we do seem to recall fortunes made
m the power business; the tele
phone business; the merchantile bus
iness, etc.
Why not be fair about this en
velope business? Do you who buy
government printed envelopes real
ly think that the printers are charg
ing an exhorbitant rate for print
ing? If so why is there not more
competition for the business? Per
haps, the newspapers are wrong in
standing up for a right -which you
yourselves would loudly assert were
it to affect your industry as it dace
outs, but we can't see why.
FARM REMINDERS
Alfalfa hay cost on the average
of $7.29 per ton to produce in Mal

from $6.65 to $9.03 per ton in the

Mammoth French White has been
found the'best variety of Jerusalem
artichoke for Oregon In trials made
by the experiment station. It is a
good producer of reasonably smooth
tubers' that are comparatively easy

To clean up lnnd infected with
ttraberry root weevil in Oregon, the
experiment station recommends
planting to grain the first year, then
to clover one year followed by a
cultivated crop. . It is then safe for
strawberries again if weevil-free
plants are obtained. Setting new
plantings close to infected areas is
dangerous. "

tention of the women of the house

a big difference in the farm profits
