est Liberty loan tho question of ac
crucd interest again arises. It is
also a matter to bo taken into ac
count on thjo salo of, a bond, all bond
quotations representing tho market
prlco to which accrued interest
should be added.
To aid In -making clear just what
accrued interest is wo reprint here
today a statement -Issued by Port
land Llborty loan headquarters, as
follows: ,
"Tho word 'accruo means to pllo
up or add to anything, and tho term
'accrued interest' means the Interest
piling up continuously or added to
the valuo of tho bond which Is earn
ing it. Interest coupons on Liborty
loan bonds aro equivalent to cash on
tho dato they maturo, as shown on
tho faco of each coupon. On these
dates coupons may bo exchanged for
cash at full faco value at any bank
In the United States.
"If the holder of tho bond falls to
cut off and cash In an interest cou
pon Iho dato it is due it makes no
dlfferenco in Its value, for It Is the
government's promlso to pay on tho
due dato or when presented there
after for payment. Therefore, when
a'ocrued Interest is calculated, it is
figured from tho date on which the
first coupon commenced to earn In'
terest or from the date tho previous
'coupon matured. If several past due
weapons are attached to the bond,
the value of all the$e)shpuldbo In-
Asido from the Industries already
established horc, which cannot glvo4
employment to nn Indefinite number
of men, tho only chauco of providing
work for returned soldiers In and
around llond lies in irrigation de
velopment. In Irrigation, however,
tho possibilities aro tremendous.
In soiling tho presont moment to
bring before government otllclnls
the'rrlgijtioti po8s)lblIlt,osot ho De-
achates vnlloy thtf commercial bodies'
or this spction are showing a spirit
and nn activity that should bring
results. Wo, have always wanted
federal aid for our projects. Now,
when tho government Itself Is look
ing for feasible openings for recon
struction work, is our golden oppor
tunity. Only a start has been made,
however. Much as has been accom
plished here In Ironing out differ
ences and obtaining local nnd state
support, there remains a still greater
work to do In nctually setting tho
red tape cut and wheols moving
back In Washington.
Ono feature of land development
in a reconstruction .program, whether
swamp drainage, clearing cut-over
land or In reclamation for irrigation
gives It a standing far ahead of any
other work. Not only Is immediate
employment furnished, but tho work
when done will provide homes and
lifo Jobs for hundreds of soldiers
who want to get back to tho laud.
These features are big arguments
for reclamation. If wo couplo with
them the arguments' wo havu for
reclamation in the Deschutes valley
wo should get what we want.

"Each day a bond Is outstanding
it earns one more day'a interest, and
In selling or buying lionds accrued
Interest should be added to the sell
ing price.
"For instance, take a $1000 war
"bead of the second Issue, Scaring 4
per cent annual Interest, or 120
May IS and Kovember-'IS each year.
The Interest t cannot be collected
from the government through a bank
before it Is due. iDut suppose that
John Jones had the bond in his pos
session until October 15 and sold It
then. He would be entitled to tho
interest at the rato of 4 pec cent,
yearly from May 15, and If ho sold
.the bond to George Smith at tho
market price of, say par and-accrued
Interest, ho should reccivo I100Q
for tho bond plus the interest to
October 15, the day of sale. Smith
would pay to Jones five months' In
terest, which ho would collect when
he cashed in the interest upon tho
coupon due November 15. He also
would get interest for the one month
since he bought the bond from Jones.
"This is the proper method of sell
ing Liberty loan bonds on any date
other than the Interest-paying date
without loss of interest to tho orig
inal holder." .

of Portland that he -bo allowed to

Plainly, the Robertson proposition
is a gamble. (But the stake is high
Rud'the winnings, If It should suc

Only a few thousand dollars are
needed; .according to competent au
thorities', to discover whether or not
the reservoir can be made leak-proof.
If it can be made to hold water much
sore land can he reclaimed and sold.
Asido from our desire to see tho
stato reimbursed for its outlay on
the project, according to tho original
plans which contemplated tho state's
receiving all the sales money for
land watered from tho reservoir, we
Have no interest in tho question as

The announcement made in this

tion by the Brooks-Scanlon Lumbor
company of n new mill in connection
with Its present plant is tho fore
runner of what Is confidently be
liovcd by the pcoplo of Dend to bo
the best year In the city's history.
Until a definite decision to proceed
with the plans is made it would be
a manifest mistako for the public to
assume that the mill will surely be
built, but tho mere fact that tho
company has the Idea under con
sideration and expects ultimately to
go through with it, it it does not do
so now, is an Indication of what our
industrial leaders are thinking. And
surely, if Industrial development is
to take place It will proceed no moro
swiftly anywhere than at Bend
Acres ' of Motherland in Central
Orogon are owned by other com
panies than those now operating
here. It the lumber markot is good
wo may expect other construction In
addition to that now under consider
ation. By taking advantage of tho
reconstruction Idea in connection
with local reclamation opportunities
tho Commercial club Is on the way
toward gaining federal assistance In
our development, while Its activity
In the matter of a woolen mill Is ex

Readers of The Bulletin will have
noticed in recent Issues advertise
ments of Oregon manufacturers
grouped under the slogan, "Use
H6me Products." Tho advertising Is
a part of the campaign of tho Oregon
Homo Industry leaguo and, with tho
underlying Idea, should be given
thorough consideration by the people
of the state.
The Bulletin has frequently urged
that local merchants be patronized
to the exclusion of mall o'rdor houses
and merchants in other sections who
have no interest In Bend, pay no
taxes hero, and who spend none of
their money here, The idea of tho
Home Industry league is the same

merchants and you will be doing

a good turn.
