What proportion of a man's net
Assets should ho contribute to war
loans ts discussed by tho Orcgonlan
In nn Illuminating editorial, from
which wo quoto ns follows:
"What proportion of a man's not
assets should ho contribute to war
loans,' Tho Orcgonlan is asked, and
should any distinction bo drawn be
tween tho man whoso assets aro In
cash or easily convertible Into cash
and tho man whoso assets aro of
equal value, but unproductive? The
best way of fixing tho proper con
tribution of tho man with cash or
liquid assets is to Include the Income
from his investments in his total in
come, and to call upon him to sub
dorlbo a percentage of tho whole.
As ho needs a certain minimum for
living expenses, this percentage
should rlso as income Is -greater. A
compilation has been mado by the
Bankers' Trust company of Now
York, according to which n roan
whoso Iricomo Is $1000 a year should
contribute $1S0 a year to war funds
in tho shapo of Liberty loan, war
savings stamps and federal income
tax, while tho contribution from a
$2000-income should bo $450 a year;
A $5000 income $2100 a year; a
$10,000 inepme $6700 a year.
"Tho man who has an Investment
that is not yet producing any return
must be, presumed to follow some oc
cupation, paying an income from
which ,ho can and should subscribe.
He may bo presumed to hold his In
vestment In expectation of future
profit and should subscribe more in
consideration of tho opportunity
which tho democratic form of gov
ernment has given him to make the
Investment and which tho mainte
nance bf' that government will give
him to realize a profit. Under auto
cratic rule he would not have either
opportunity. He would bo heavily
taxed to maintain Imperial splendor,
a great bureaucracy and a huge
army, and would probably be
squeezed by a government-supported
trust. Putting the matter merely on
the ground of cold-blooded business,
it is long-headed business for him
to protect1 his investment by support
ing ,th (government in winning vic
tory over Germany.
"But his incomo may not be suf
ficient to. permit this additional con
tribution Then he should do more
work and oarn more money In order
to increase his incomo and thereby
his contribution. In tho present
emergency there Is plenty of work
for every mn and woman, and It ts a
patriotic duty to seek It and do it.
A man may work longer at his reg
ular occupation, or1 ho may spend
eoveral hours a day at some other,
and add to his earnings. There Is
no better uso for such extra earn
ings than Investment in Liberty
bonds., They may provide means to
improve that unproductive invest
ment and make it pay interest on its
value. By doing more work and
making this uso of the proceeds, he
serves both himself and his country.
Even if he be well enough off to live
without work, tho duty to work is
etlll the same. There Is no room for
idlo hands in these times."

Tho effort to scpnrato Liberty
bond holders not familiar with

Liberty bonds has taken a new turn.

Tho safest Investment In tho world
Is a Liberty bond. For a patriotic
American, Liberty bonds aro tho best
investment in tho world. It is not
only a wiso thing to hold them It is
a patriotic thing to do, Tho soldier
that takes a tronch and then volun
tarily gives It up Is not to bo com
pared with ono who takes n trench
and holds it against the cnomy. An
American who buys a Liberty bond
nnd then sells It Is not so good an
American as ono who buys n bond
and holds it. This docs not npply.
however, to ono who sells his bond
because of real necessity; thoro Is
legitimate trading In Liberty bonds
which tho treasury recognizes.
It was a wiso and patriotic old
colored American who refused to soil
his $100 Liberty bond for $96. be
cause ho would not give up the
United States' promlso (his bond) to
pay him $100, with interest for the
United States' promlso (curroncy)
to pay him $96, and who refused to
sell tho samo bond for $102, because,
he said, that the $102 must bo coun
terfeit or olso tho would-be pur
chaser would not bo willing to give
it for only $100 It Is safe to say
that there are no gold bricks or wild

News in Brief.
How frequently we are told that
the kindest thing we can do for our
boys la France or In camp here Is
to write them letters full ot the news
of home and the home town. They
must 'bo cheerful letters and they
should bo frequent and newsy. Those
Are the three essentials.
The; Importance of such letters Is
Impressed anew on us by a letter
Iroin a young lieutenant to a relative
living near Bend, which we have
been privileged to read. Having
chargo of tho prisoners at his camp,
it la his duty to read their mall and
ho thereby lias an opportunity to
comparo and to judge effects. And
hiu letter tells a llttlo of his own
feeljngs about letters that he re
ceives. Ho writes in part: "Speaking of

In July, 1914, Sir Edward Grey,
at the head of tho British foreign
office, did everything possible, com
patible with tho dignity ot tho na
tion he represented, to avert the
war. Ho proposed and urged arbi
tration. Serbia was ready to accede
to the most humiliating demands
mado on her by Austria. All tho
European nations, except Italy, who
have since become allies against the
central powers, were willing, Indeed
anxious, to avoid the war and ready
to Join Britain In arbitration.
Germany rofused to arbitrate
Germany had been preparing for the
war for 40 years. Her plans were'
to put It through In six weeks. She
would not stand for arbitration.
Sho was for war.
Now after four years have passed
and Germany finds that sho is not
to win, but that, on tho contrary,
sho is daily approaching a heating
such as she had hoped to give
Franco, If not tho other allied na
tions, sho makes Austria como for

Germany was behind Austria whon
the latter mado tho demands on
Serbia that caused tho war; sho Is
now behind Austria In tho requests
for a peaco conference. Both na
tions know well enough on what
terms tho rest of tho world will make
peace. Let them offer these terms
if they aro sincere. If they will not
do so tho only peaco that can come

Is largely to blnmo for tho condition
nnd tho convicts nro smooth enough
to see thnt nnd take advnu(ngo of It,
No two men can ngreo on n prison
policy. Ono man says, "Hnng 'em,"
anothor says, "Bo kind to 'urn." Ono
snys a convict Is nn Irredeemable

n human being whoso foot has

In In a practical manner.
And nil tho time a shrewd hunch
of hard-bolls on the Inside Is plotting

to get tho warden In bad. The result
Is that u year or two of administra

that because a man has made a mis
