NEWS AND NEWS.
Publishing n newspaper Is a busi
ness proposition Just ns much ns run
nine a grocery or n bank or n dniR
store. A newspaper must pay Its
bills, meet Us pay roll and ought to
hate something left over nt tho end
of laeychr Just ns nny other business
Unlike, almost every business a
newspaper Is called on for a sort or
public scrvlco for which no payment
Is expected to bo made that Is, by
tho person asking It. Recognized ns
tho medium for getting Information
to tho public tho effort is almost
dally mndo to uso it for getting over
sorao special Information with somo
nows value, but of more particular
Interest lo the person who asks for
Jts publication. News Is wnntcd by
a newspaper nt nil times. News Is
sought for, hunted out, run down.
Thousands of dollars are spent by in
BtUdont tiny,1' while to tho reBt of
us it hns made this pnrt of tho state's
educntional system a little mora real.
All thts Is valuable, b6th for us
mid for the university, nnd'cspeclnlly
vnlkiablo at theypreieut time because
tit thoproposal nowundorconsldor
ntlon to vuto a ItruVvlcr- mtllngo tux
for tha nupport of it and tho agricul
tural college. It Is of tho utmost Im
portance that a good majority ho
given tho tax measure. If wo can
forgot tlint It Is tnos wo nro voting
nnd through these young men who
wore hero Tuesdny night seo tho
thing we nro voting for education
for tho youth 'of tho state wo will
bo bound to give that majority.
Roth tho university mul the agri
cultural college nro supported by a
mtllngo tax. When It was plnccd nt
its present flguro It wns expected
that tho natural tncreaso of tho as
sessed valuation of the Btnto would
bo sufficient to produce, with the,
same millngc, sutuclont funds to euro
for tho natural growth of tho two
institutions. Instead of an increase,
however, there occurred decreases In
valuation. Attendance increased as
expected and costs went up in tho
nlr. Now a crisis Is faced. Either
tho new tnx must bo voted or. many
young people denied tho opportunity
of an education. N
If nny nro turned away your boy
or girl mny bo among them. Will you
vote to keep them out of college?

No one can hnvo decided opinion
and express them with any degrco
of frequency without sooner or later
dividual newspapers every ycarfor cr08sing almost everyone to whom
nows anu papers win ngni lor mo , thes0 onlnions becomu known. Tlint
opportunity to print nows first. But
when news comes, as It so often does,
with tho scent of some special inter
est or solf seeking, then' tho news
paper becomes chary and holds off.
The question "Whnt Is nows and
what is not news?" is often n hard
ono to answer. Somo years ago a
national weekly published tho defin
itions of news submitted by editors
from all over tho country and tharo
wero almost as many different ideas
expressed as there wero men to ex
press them. However, tho definition
Is phrased, though, editors will gener
ally agree, whethor tho particular
Item' Is or Is not nows, and If there
Is any suggestion of putting news
over for tho purpose of advertising
Vthey will say it is not news.
The point was well brought out in
a recent letter from tho editor of a
California paper from which we re
print tho following paragraphs:
"It is true that by boosting tho in
terests of tho San Joaquin Light nnd
Power "Company in our columns wo
would bo rendering a public service.
But it is also true that by promoting
Mellln's Baby Food, we would bo of
fering a similar constructive service
to tho public. By urging the use of
Naxated Iron we would be offering a
public service; by advocating the
Is why, at somo time or another, the
editorial opinion of n newspaper Is nt
vnrlanco with that of somo person
who thinks for himself. Differences
of opinion make horso races, tho say
ing has it, nnd clushos of opinion
produco tho heat of controversy and,
uslinlly, tho light of understanding.
All of which Is preliminary to say
ing' that although we frequently dis
agree with the opinions expressed by
tho editor of tho Oregon Voter wo
Dnd what he has to say instructive
and clear. Frequently ho does what
all editors aro always trying to do
ho hits tho nail on tho head and we
havo scored him jgith n 100 pcrcont
mark for recent words on tho subject
of a school board controversy in Med
ford. Mr. Chapman says:
"A situation of this kind Is nlmost
impossible to straighten out without
damago to tho schools nnd injustice
to Individuals. It is a situation pos
sible to ariso in any city where, a
school board religiously keeps out of
politics, employs tho best superin
tendent it can get and backs him up
in Introduction of methods intended
for school betterment. So long aa a
school board is kept In power it can

We won't got back to normal ways until we've
' had some rainy days. So long as roubles grow
on trees, and greenbacks wave in every breeze,
we'll hit high places and repeat, and scorch the

the rest arc blowing money galley west. It's
epidemic, like the flu, this gorgeous spendthrift
howdydo. Some day a panic, large and pale, with
four white feet and braided tail, will land upon us
while we spend, and to our orgy put an end. Then
you will see men out of jobs, and you will hear the
housewives' sobs; and you will mark the loan

Then we'll quit blowing useful coin for canvasback

cut out the silk attire, the princely tips, the chauf

demonstrate that we are sane. Then every sad rind

tho first question with us Is not,

rather, "From what motive was this

a motive, of public service or was it
from a motive of private gain?' And

Ono thing to bo borne in mind In
considering this amendment is that
it is not a tax measure in nny form.
No addition to our taxes will como
of it under nny circumstances. It sim
ply gives tho opportunity for tho
further capitalization of automobllo
income such as license fees und gas
oline (ax. That Is, tho bonds aro Is
sued now and tho money obtained.
Then they nro paid off, both principal
and interest, by these receipts from

been prepared showing the expected
income from this source aud tho pay
