"Keeping cool with Coolidge" has
left a brown taste in the mouth of
the Northwest, as a result of the
tiansfer of the President line of five
fteamers by Mr. Coolidge's shipping
biard to the Dollar interests for
$3,500,000 less than other bidders
offered for the ships. The Oregon
ian's news bureau at Washington
likens the closing chapter of a futile
struggle of Northwest shipping in
terests to save the fast freight lin
ers from transfer to the Dollars at
San Francisco, .to a "grim touch of
humor," when at the last moment
Coolidge had decided to intervene,
but not until the swift-working ship
ping board had filled out and signed
the little piece of paper that trans
fared the big liners from government
ownership to R. Stanley Dollar at a
figure which barely covers the cost
the government paid for two of the
five sister ships. This is about the
cleverest stroke in the art of "keep
ing cool with Coolidge" we are
aware of so cool in fact, that the
Northwest has been completely froz
en out of her share of Oriental fast
WOULD MAKE MARS SMILE
The American people are paying
but one-eighth of their income for
taxes whether they are in the high
er income brackets, or in the class
which does not pay any taxes or file
returns. The San Francisco Chron
icle puts it this way:
"In 1924 the total income of people
in the United States was 63 bil
lions. Taxes national, state, muni
cipal and all the rest, took eight mil
lions. This means that out of each
$10 you spent, you got only .r,
and taxes took $1.25, no matter how
loudly1 you may have pleaded poverty.
"In 190.1, we gave up only one
fifteenth of our income. Now v,e
give up more than twice that much.
Out of eight working days, the pro
ceeds of one day must go to the gov
ernment federal and otherwise.
"If the small taxpayer could be
presented with a bill onco a yvar,
showing just how much his taxes
amounted to, including not only dir
ect taxes but all the indirect tuxes
Kkimmcd off every commodity he
buys, a howl would go up that could
be heard on the planet Mars."
RACING CAR KILLS
Three deaths" were counted against
Yakima's celebration of Memorial
day, when Harlan D. Johnson, Sr., 40
died of injuries received as Ira
Cook's racing car crashed through a
fence at the Washington state fair
grounds. Johnson's son, Harlan D.
Johnson, 9 was killed instantly. The
first death in connection with the an
nual racing event occurred Sunday
afternoon, when Ira W. Hays, of Au
burn, was crowded off the Inland
Empire highway while driving to
Yakima in his racing car.
F. D. McCulley, farmer of Joseph,
in Wallowa county, eastern Oregon,
filed bankruptcy proceedings in fed
eral court at Portland, listing debts
totalling $133,921. Taxes listed as
due totaled $3,212. The largest debt
was $50,000 owned by the California
joint stock land bank of San Fran
cisco. McCulley valued his assets
at $131,145, all in real estate and
stocks, except $50.
GOOD CROPS ASSURED
A big grain crop is assured for
practically all sections of the state,
there having been sufficient rainfall
to carry the growth through. There
is a large acreage of potatoes and a
full yield is promised. , Apples,
prune, pears and Bmall fruits are
looking good, but cherries and straw
berries were somewhat damaged by
GRAIN HARVESTING EARLY
Harvesting of grain will be con
siderably earlier this season than in
former years and reports from some
eastern Oregon wheat sections state
that it will start as early as June
A wedding of considerable inter

STORE FOR RANCH
Fred K. Nordhoff, prominent Free
water merchant, has traded his mer
cantile establishment in that city for
a 490-acre ranch, near Creswel!,
Tom King, Washington newspaper
correspondent, in commenting on the
agricultural relief situation in con
gress, says:. The tariff on agricul
tural products is to be made 'effect
ive,' it is stated. Terhaps this can
not be done, but the farmers say
that congress must make the ex
periment. If the experiment fails,
or if congress refuses to act, then
there arises an inescapable alternat
ive. It must then be openly admitted
that the tariff, which works vet-y
well in the case of the manufacturer,
does not work at all in the case of
the farmer who produces more than
cun be consumed by the domestic
market. That will clear the deck
for a frank investigation of the
whole protective tariff system. That
system may indirectly benefit the
former, and its advocates can labor
that point to the best possible ad
vantage, but they will have to quit
claiming that a 40 cent tariff on
wheat raises the rricc of wheat in
the United States above the Canadi

Economy has been preached as a
