Entered as second class matter March 28, 1911, at the postoffice at Aurora
Oregon, under the A ct o f March 3, 1879.
The Astoria News, the official paper of the Astoria
Central Labor Council, has gone out of business. It at
tacked the Astoria American Legion, an organization of
returned soldiers, sailors and marines. The Astoria busi
ness men withdrew their patronage from the paper, and
the conservative element of the labor council ordered its
publication suspended. The Astoria Legion is an organ
ization alive to the problems and perils of the hour, and
will have the support of all good citizens of Oregon in
their war upon the alien slacker and his kind. The alien
who wants to live in America rather than his own country
must assume the obligations his residence here imposes—
or get out. Loyal Oregonians and Americans everywhere
will back the Astoria Legion to the limit.
The war added $20,000,000.000 to the public debt of
the United States. The railroad brotherhood plan of
conducting the railways would add another twenty billions
to the burden.
A fellow in Idaho has written a book “ How To Make
Money Farming” . An Aurora farmer who has read the
book says it is the most entertaining piece of fiction he

there are a few families in every community that do not
take their home paper—but they always read it. “ Tip”
thinks all places are like Jefferson, but they’re not—be

Many farmers claim the government guarantee of
$2.26 per bushel for wheat is too low and that if the guar
antee were repealed, the price of- wheat would go up
Still others fear that the removal of the .guarantee would
cause the price to drop. It is quite evident that whatever
is done about it, the result will not suit everybody. Low
ering prices cuts into someone’s revenue. On the other
hand, raising prices cuts into everyone’s income. Hence
the average man is likely to raise objection in either case
for what suits the producer does not always, suit the

Max H, Houser; head of the U. S. Grain Corporation
at Portland, announces that the purchaser of wheat direct
from farmers, for the purpose of resale or manufacture
(no matter how small the quantity) cannot be considered
a retail transaction, and that persons engaged in such op
eration must have a license. Also that the handling of
seed wheat (no matter how small the quantity) cannot be
considered a retail transaction, and such dealers must
have a license. Dealers in damaged wheat(unfit for hu-
. man consumption), who purchase direct from farmers, must
also have a license. Retail dealers who purchase- wheat

Senator Borah is an unyielding advocate o f the policy
of isolation for America and a bitter foe of the League of
Nations on the ground that it would involve the United
States in European and Asiatic controversies, yet he is
quite willing to go to war with Japan over Shantung, as
he made clear when he said in the course of his attack on
the Shantung provision of the treaty of peace: “ If war is
the only alternative, I am ready to face it, and we might
as well face it now.” That is the direction in which every
opponent of the league is facem g—for the Borah policy
means war and more war. At the same time, they and
their supporters, set up the cry that the League of
Nations is a “ league for war” . Unless they offer some
thing better it will be difficult to justify their attitude
should it result in the rejection of the treaty and the dis
ruption of the league plan.
One of the chief objections to the League of Nations,
by its opponents, is that it will bind us to maintain the
political integrity of other nations, yet the Monroe
Doctrine (which the opponents of the league say is not
sufficiently safe guarded) warned European nations (and
all the world) that we would and jwill go to war if neces
sary to maintain the political integrity of the South
American nations. Monroe’s declaration was based upon
o ir national needs. It was not formulated for the bene
fit of South America, but for the safety of the United
States. Similarly, our interest in the league is not be
cause it will benefit Europe, but because it will benefit us.
It’s chief object is _ to prevent military aggression.
Military dominance by one European over others menaces
our peace and safety today as much as the Holy Alliance
did in Monroe’s day,and all our hopes for the future peace,
safety and happiness of the nations of the would rest up
on the prevention of military aggression, and the League
of Nations is the only plan in sight that promises any hope
of success. The common people are ready and willing to
