of construction involving tho Ben

The announcement that nil drafted
men wero now out of Siberia Is nindo
with an assumption of virtue on tho
part of tho War Department that
will havo no weight with tho peo
ple. The department would havo us
think that since the only troops left
In Siberia were volunteers It Is nil
right ftr an American army to bo
there. To hose, however, who are
taking any Interest In the relation
of the United States to the Russian
situation this is merely an avoidance
of the fundamental Issue. We should
like to know why American troops
are In Siberia at all. The fact that
they are volunteers makes uo differ
ence. Indeed for the department to mako
a special point of tho fact that tho
soldiers nrevolunteer suggests that
hereafter It Is to be necessary to got
volunteers for every duty tho army
Is to perform, and that Is going a
little too far. Tho American army
ought never to go nnywhero where
It has no business: but if it has legi
timate business to attend to It oughj
to go without calling for volunteers.
Curiously on the same day that
this announcement Is made thero
has been received here samplo copies
of n magazine called "Soviet Rus
sia" printed In tho city or New York,
which Is still In the United States.
Tho magazine is stated to be the offi
cial organ of the Russian Soviet
Government Bureau, it is carried lui
the United States malls, and its ed
itors are living under the protection
of, tho taws of tho United States. '

perience is perhaps the finest of the
Oregon counties, outside of Multno

guldancq in the local work. A cen
tral library Is maintained at Pend
leton and branches at Milton, Free

Hermlston, Umaplne school, Stan
Held, Echo, .Weslon) Athenn, Helix
and Adams. Funds for the central
building In Pendleton "came from the
Carnegie coVporation which also
made contributions for one of the

palgn recently Inaugurated by tho
United States department of agri
culture. Tho campaign looks for
ward to the future food needs of this
country's Increasing population and
tho plan is to hasten tho replace
mont of tho multitude of scrub do
mestic animals In tho United States
with purebred or high grade stock
and also to jnjprove tho quality of
purenreus inoraaeiven.
In a recent-number of tho Re-
clumnUou Record It Is pointed out
that scrub hog requires a certain
number 6f bushels of corn to make
200 pounds of pork, while tho pure
bred or high grade hog takes the
same number of bushels of corn
and makes 300 pounds of pork, The
purebred, or blph grade cow nkcs

the farmer gets more pounds of sal
able product but of ills feed when he
uses purebred sires at tho head of
his herds and flocks.
An Illustration accompanying" the
Record article shows on one side
live tubs (of butter, four of GO
pounds and ono of 28, the average
production per cow lit herds headed
by purebred bulls, and on tho other
three, two Go's nnd a 49, tho average
per cow In herds headed by grade
and scrub bulls. Ono set of tubs
weighs 2C8 pounds and the other 1C9.
Tho dlfferenco in value is $59. CO per
cow. Thjs graphic method U.tused
to show the results obtained by a
cow testing association In Texas.
, If purebred sires will produce such
results In Texas they will do tho
samo here and every effort should
bo made to promote their owner

There's a new scheme on foot to
mako over the calendar. An ossocln
tlon has been formed and It is now
at work trying to persuado Congress
and tho public that Its proposed re
form is desirable. Remcmbering-thal
tho calendnr has been made over al
ready n number of times, on
"with a view to simplifying it, wo may
consider the ateut proposal with
open minds, .;
The plan is to divide tho year Into
,13 months, instead of tho present 12t
ine esiru iiivhui wuuiu uv ciiiiuu
liberty and would follow February.
Each of tho 13 would have exactly
28 days, or four weeku each,' nnd
each would begin on Monday, Now
Yours day would becomo an inde-
ipondont legal -holiday nnd would not
bo included in any weok or month,
and in leap years another Independ
ent legal holiday Is provided called
"Correction duy."
Tho advantage that strikes ono at
once Is the arrangomont by which tho
days of tho month aro mado to coin
cide with the uanlo days of tho week
tho year around. Monday would
always bo tho 1st, tho 8th, tho 15th,
or tho 22nd. No longer would wo
havo to mumblo "Thirty Days Hath
(November, April June and Septem
ber." etc., or run over our knuckles
As listed by tho association
advnntnges are that:
"Tho saving of time and mental
effort would be Immense. All holi
days and nnnlversarlen would always
fall on tho samo day of the weok.
A promissory noto given for any
number of weeks, months and years
would always come duo on the same
day of the week it was given. The
jilan also provides that Good Friday
aim waster minuay sunn always be
observed on certain fixed dates. This
was contemplated when our prevent
calendar' was adopted,"
Folks who are Interested aro urged
by the association to ask thilr con
grossmen to support tho measure. '
