It is a noticeable fact that adult
education is increasing as is mani
fested in correspondence students in
Oregon, as well by increase shown
in other states. Leaving of school
work at the completion of the eighth
grade or at the end of the high
school course, has been found in af
ter years by adults to make them
deficient in educational requirements
demanded for success in many voca
tions that opened to them. Ordinar
ily the student who acquires a
thorough high school education is
fitted to begin life's work, but as
times have changed, occupational op
portunity has become more of the
specialized order with the result that
the high school graduate finds that
he is handicapped in his application
to preferred vocations, as compared
with the student who took at least
a preparatory course in institutions
of higher education.
The Portland Journal assumes to
believe that New York's banished
crime bandits are flocking to the
coast cities, and sees in the tvin
robberies of the Olds, Wortman &.
King department store, evidence thut
they are operating in Portland. The
swansong of the gangster was sung
in Gotham when the legislature at
Albany passed a real law in defense of
society which effectively sawed
crime mongers short off at the pock
ets. The same legislative dose in
the behalf of decent, law abiding
citizens is needed in every state in
the union.
We read that Tammany has or
ganized the "Columbia order, a pa
triotic and benevolent order of which
political Tammany Hall is an out
growth." Further the Tammany out
fit proposes to invade other states by
forming "auxiliary wigwams," little
festered sprouts coordinating with
the New York Tammany society.
Well, we have always had a leaning
toward Jeffersonian democracy, but
here's hoping that the G. 0. P. will
be so allured strong in Oregon that
the roots of Tannnanyism will for
ever wither here.
The lower Mississippi is huving its
annual battle with dykes and the
dykes are breaking, bringing ruin
and misery to plantation owners in
the lowlands. Within the week 25,000
persons in the southern flooded dist
ricts have become refugees. It be
gins to look like the reclamation pol
icy of the government will eventual
ly have to be turned toward the
building of dykes and levees instead
of dams and canals.
It is to be sincerely hoped that
the financial difficulties now being
encountered by the Portland Evening
Telegram may be satisfactorily ad
justed by the cooperative movement
on the part of the employes the
men and women whose sweat has
bought from the public appreciation
of the paper's real worth and that
the Telegram will continue to fill the
important niche it has held for fifty
years at Portland and in the stato.
"Calling attention to the possibil
ity of trouble ahead in the coal fields,
Carry C. Abell, past president of the
American Gas Association, predicts
that a phenomenal turning to gas
fuel by both industries and homes
will be an outstanding development
of the next five years." Yes. And if
the proper development of Umatida
Rapids and other meritorious projects
were realized, electricity would be
enabled to do its share.
It is a question whether or not the
proposed national movement in ask
ing motorists to cooperate in saving
lives of birds and wild animals along
the highways will function, because
of the mere fact that the average
motorist is usually in such a hurry
that he cannot determine whether his
machine strikes a wren or a moose.
The real trouble confronting the
accomplishment of church union, is
that it is rather hard on the fellow
who is called on to turn the key in
the door lock and batten up his
church house windows. Church prop
erty may be only church property,
but it's property just the same.
Senator McNary announces to Sa
lem cherry growers that the tiriff
commission has assured him that the
import duty on that fruit wili be
raised. All of which is cause for
cherry men to perk up and smile
quite a bit.
Mr. Marshall and Mr. Smith have
front page space now, and the scare
heads on religion are just as se.ivy
as are the heads carrying chronicles
of murders and robberies.
