has been nothing nioro heard from
Jefferson county about cooperation.
What Is now wanted?
Cobb, Its motion picture publicity
and the many other things which the
energetic ' Commercial club of tho
Deschutes- county metropolis has so
successfully put across, and while
Redmond was securing her county
cusslon of a recent article by Roger
W. Bnbson, in which just that point
was mado. Mr. Bnbson'a nrtlclo
was entitled "Food or Frocks." Tho
discussion rends as follows:
"There Is much food for thought In
tho facts to which Mr. Bnbson calls
attention. 'It Is estimated, ho says,
that last year tho American pcoplo
fair, Wer good roads and her Irriga- spent over $22,000,000,000 on non
tlon, Madras and tho greater portion! essentials. If millions of men nro
of Jefferson county, as would any
lOther community in which the re
sult was its life or death, has for
more than five years been working
for tho ' North unit Irrigation dis
trict. Success seems close at hand.
' "With none other than the kindly
feeling of one community toward an
other, this great wotk has been ac
complished with no Idea or thought
of damaging either the communities
of Bend or Redmond. We neither
have the space nor inclination to re
hash the fight which this commun
ity hbs experienced in Its effort for
irrigation. Needless, however, to say
that it has, practically. worked alone.
Other communities, as undoubtedly
was right, were working for their
own best interests, as was this. Wc
needed tho North unit; they did not.
:They were Informed of our plans
and their assistance was solicited.
"At this late date they have no
fight, only a cry. The Redmond
Commercial club, as did the Com
mercial club of Rend, have appoint
ed committees to investigate. Bol
ter they had appointed committees a
few years ago to assist in securing
this united project.
"The Bend? papers, and the Bend
correspondent to the Portland pa
pers, .ho,ve .made an effort to place
the North unit in an unfair light. It
is doubtful whether they will suc
ceed, as those who are interested, and
'who "will h'elp put over the project,
have' investigated and are correctly
informed as to conditions."
. - .1
Wo do not know just what our
Mddras'frlend means by his reference
to the' Seattle spirit and must ask for
an explanation. Further, before wo
engage In' any discussion of the mat
ter 'referred 'to in the article quot
ed above-,) it would be desirable to
have an.- understanding as to the
facts '.Involved,
It has been understood that tho
North,, unit, plan was to take all the
storage, -patera of the Deschutes,
leaving nothing for the other units
of tho Deschutes project. The Pio
neer novf, .says there has been "no
thought of; damaging either of tho
communities of Bend or Redmond."
Just what does this mean? What
Is the fact as to the North unit
plans?' The .Pioneer Is in position to
know' about these things. Will it
explain? If the North unit does not
want all the water, what coopera-
cngaged In producing materials for
making luxuries, or In manufactur
ing or selling luxuries of any kind,
they hnve not time to devote to rais
ing foodstuffs and making tho essen
tials of life.'
"According to Unbson, seven
eights of tho selling effort today Is
directed to getting people to buy lux
uries, nnd It Is plain thnt until pco
plo stop buying luxuries, nnd thero
by r.eleaso tho mnterlals nnd labor
that aro going Into them, thero will
not be enough of tho necessities of
llfo produced so that they can bo
sold at more moderate prices.
"But nn even more deplornblo fact
Is that most people nro becoming
laiy and careless as well as extrava
gant. Consumption Is not only In
creasing, but production Is falling
off. Production per man has fal
len in Industry by 20 to -10 per cent.
"There are, of course, many other
factors that enter into the solution
of these pressing problems of the
cost of living, but It seems to us that
a consideration of the facts men
tioned must lead every right-thinking
person, who wants to dlschnrgo his
obligation to society and to aid in
tho solution of Its problems, to ro
allzo that he must stop buying lux
uries and increase his output.
"If Just half tho people who arc
complaining about the cost of living
would practice as well as preach this
doctrine, this bugaboo of the high
cost of living would quickly disappear."
councimen It should bo 'said that
thoy nro doing everything they enn
to euro for tho city work, frequently
at n loss to their own business, but
It Is too much to oxpoct of them nnd
a chango should bo mado.
v Whether a commission form of
government or n city manager plan
ts tho hnmo of tho now form is not
especially essential. What ts needed
Is tho employment of nn official who
can glvo his wholo tlmu to tho job
nnd be paid accordingly. This might
bo done by enlarging tho lowers of
tho city, recordor undor Iho prosont
charter leaving tho mayor nnd coun
cil as advisors (o whom reports
could bo mado at frequent Intervals.
Or u new charter may bo adoptud
following the corporation Idea and
placing thq ndmlnlslrntlnn in tho
bnniU of nn executive official with
a board of directors .through whom
ho will bo responslnlotcTTho stock
holders, that Is, tho people.
Whntover the plan steps looking
townrd tho chango should be mado
at once nnd It tho InUlntlvu ts not
to bo taken by outside organizations
wo believe tho mayor and. council
IhomBolves should mrtko this tholr
own business and presonl to tho peo

for n chango.

Although little has been heard
lately of the plan suggested by tho
Community Clearing House league
to adopt a city manager form of gov
ernment for Bend we trust that tho
Idea has not been entirely abandoned.
Without reflecting in the slightest
degree on tho present city adminis
tration we think It fair to say thst
a change in the form of our mu.-ci-pal
government is extremely desira
ble. Bend at present operates uuuer
a charter adopted in 1911 when its
population was less than 1000. In
the nearly ten years that have elcpred
the population has increased iroro
than five fold. With the increaso
have come scores of new problems
requiring for their proper solution
more time and attention than nny un
paid official can afford to give. To
tho credit of our mayor and our

contradictory. Ono recognizes that
prices may bo increased; the other
asserts that if they aro there will be
no Justification.
As wo sco It, both non are right.
Mr. Thorno foresees n condition like
that created by tho oxcess'proflts tax. j
Mr. Lauck condemns it In advance
If tho condition occurs It will bo
worthy of condemnation, for It will
simply noan n roturn to tho present
stnto of affair by which higher prices
havo brought a domand for higher
wages, and tho granting of higher
wages has mado higher costs. Un
