France having suffered so greatly
from a war that was forced upon
her, it is not surprising that her po
litical judgment is warped by sus
picion and hatred and there is an ele
ment of inconsistency in her posi
tion. There is no quicker way by
which the economic rehabilitation of
Europe can be satisfactorily accom
plished than by an alliance between
Germany and P.ussia, even though we
may smile at the assurance of their
respective governments that it is
based upon a "spirit of pure benevo
lence." Without the chance for com
mercial recovery which such an alli
ance promises, Germany cannot pay
her huge bill of reparations. In
other words, a debtor cannot be kept
from working along the most advan
tageous lines if the creditors expeet
their debts to be liquidated. Under
the conditions that exist today in
Europe, Germany and Russia are
natural economic allies, and the other
powers should encourage their trade
affiliation, while at the same time
watching carefully for any tenden
cies toward militaristic dominance.
Statistics have a habit of disprov
ing the sapient arguments of those
who contend that prohibition is a
failure. For instance, according to
Judge Green of the Commerce Court
of Chicago, prohibition has caused
sixty institutions for the treatment
of inebriates to close their doors
from lack of patronage. There Is far
less drinking now than formerly;
and there will be less yet so soon as

John Barleycorn may not be dead,

According to the latest dictum of
science the world is between eight
million and seventeen hundred mil

The English idea of sport is thus
epitomized by A. Conan Doyle: "We

game than for the victory." Un
doubtedly this has its merits.
Between lawlessness on the part
of criminal? and lawlessness on the
part of masked nisht riders, we pre

Attacks on the direct primary in

even the bad boss is wiser than the

One American dollar is worth

In advocating the single standard
of morals in America, Lady Astor
resolves our doubts by the inference
that we have a moral standard.
Lady Astor believes that "America
can show the way to peace." This
would perhaps be easier than for
Eunpe to follow it.

For the same reason that they fly

About the only reason why there
aren't more candidates than voters
in Oregon is that every candidate is

Superfluous query. They've already

While this from The Oregonian is
good advice, we'll bet the writer's
only experience with spades has been
had at the press club poker table:
"This is the season when it isn't so
important to call a spode a spade as
it is to get out and use it. Whether
getting the ground ready for radishes
or uncovering fisbworms, it is a
mighty useful tool."
Germany and Russia having de

Style plus quality plus saving
equals pocketbook satisfaction and
the fact that you're buying right!
It is not necessarily alone the price you pay that means pocketbook satisfac
tion. It's what you receive for the price that in the end proves the genuine
ness and extent of the satisfaction you experience.
It's the style, the quality and the workmanship in your purchase at a price,
that determine the lowness of that price!
A quality-providing ability of this kind is the result of a store's buying
pewer whether the buying in the market was made for one store or hun
dreds of stores; whether the buying was done with a thorough under
standing of the needs of the store's patrons or bought wildly and haphaz
ardly to eventually-be sold at so-called "sales."
The buying for our 312 department stores obtains lowest possible prices
and the pick of style and quality. This results because of the vast quanti
ties of goods our combined stores require.
By buying here you know you are buying right.
