Rural America Will Do It.
By Richard Lloyd Jones.
Law enforcement is more general
ly practiced and respected in rural
districts and small towns than in the
All the great cities were, by a
large majority, opposed to the elimi
nation of the saloon. And yet it was
the saloon in the large cities that did
the most of the soul-and-body-de-stroying
Bad in any place the saloon was at
its worst in the big towns. Yet the
majority favored its retention and to
day register protest against prohibi
tion. On the other hand, by a large
majority, the small towns and the
rural districts favor the laws of de
cency. For this reason the smaller towns
do not today experience, as do the
larger cities, that which has been
termed the great crime wave.
The committee on law enforce
ment of the American Bar Associa
tion, headed by Judge William D.
Swaney, of Chattanooga, Tenn., has
recommended to the lawyers of the
land that a very drastic national law
be enacted which will prohibit the
promiscuous sale of firearms.
This committee declares that the
pistol serves no special purpose in
the community today and that it
should not be manufactured except
so far as government and official
needs may require under proper
legal regulation and control.
The committee points out that j
there were nearly 10,000 unlawful i
homicides in this country last year
and that burglaries have increased in (
the United States 1,200 per cent in
the last ten years. !
The committee also maintains that
deliberate murder, burglary and rob
bery will seldom be attempted unless
the criminal is armed. It also points
out that crime percentages in Europe
are very much less', due to the fact
that it is difficult for civilians to ac
quire firearms and the penalty is se
vere for carrying them.
Our big cities are so busy with
wiiat they regard as the pressing bus
iness of the hour, that they are less
likely to weigh the moral worth of an
issue than are the smaller towns and
rural districts. Therefore, the moral
support of a righteous redress
against a wrong social tendency
comes from the less populated
The big town men too often think
they are the big idea builders. That
is their big mistake. It is the small
towns that both make and save the
Restriction of manufacture and
sale and possession of pocket fire
pieces must come and it is rural Am
erica that will bring it.
The Hen Calls For Help.
Anally the food profiteers have
locked horns w ith a real opposition.
They face the inexorable persis
tency of the great American hen and
Some years ago the American hen
g:ive warning that she might prove
a dangerous enemy and bring about
fair prices, but the shrewd profiteers
countered, and when the hen laid in
sufficient volume to feed the people
the cold storage warehouse was con
ceived. Instead of being distributed at
prices governed by the law of sup
ply and demand, eggs were stored,
kept from the people, and doled out
at uniformly high prices.
It appears, however, that the great
American hen has been thinking.
The result is she has again come
to the front with a production so be
wildering that the cold storage plants
cannot take care of it.
True, in spite of this, eggs in New
York are selling from 60 to 75 cents
But the bump is at hand.
If the hen gets a little support
from the public and a little tiny egg
strike is started, the backbone of the
price extortion will be broken.
It is all very well to store eggs,
but when it comes to erecting more
and more great steel and concrete
structures equipped with the expen
sive freezing plants to take care of
them, then it may be thought better
to sell the present stock at a fair
There are now 303,000,000 dozen
eggs in storage more than three

The case of the Tualatin fanner
who swore allegiance to the King
and the Dominion of Canada in or

natural outgrowth of the action of
many citizens of this country and his
regrets are going to be shared by
many another who has done the
Citizenship in the United States is
not as highly prized by the average
native born American as it should
be. Canada is our neighbor, people
there are very much like they ire
here, conditions very similar, and un
doubtedly some of the laws better.
Many considered subscribing to an
oath of allegiance to a new ruler
largely a matter of form and many of
them look forward to the day when
they will be able to return to the
States with a stake from the farm
they take up.
Their viewpoint is wrong, and
their action inexcusable. They are
taking an unwarranted liberty with
their citizenship in the United States
and usually when they take the oath
of their new country they lack sin
cerity. The Tualatin man is in trou
ble chiefly because of his ignorance,
but if he had been a brighter man
and followed the course he chose his

told the 1925 Fair Caravan some
things which some Condon people
thought but did not say when the
Caravaners were here. They told
Mayor Baker and his associates that
Morrow county people were not
strong for the 1925 exposition or
anything else just now, that tends to
increase the tax burden. They said
the people are suspicious of the
statement that all Portland was ask
ing is permission to bond itself for
the fair, adding that when such au
thority has been granted, there is ev
ery probability that a powerful lobby
from Portland will appear before the
next legislature to put through leg

cy clause attached) bonding the state
for additional funds for the fair, as
it is already easy to foresee that
Portland's little old four millions will
be but a 'Vop in the bucket when it
comes to putting on a real world's
On the other hand F. A. McMena
min declared that with few excep
tions the people of Morrow county
are strong for the fair. State High
way Commissioner Barratt spoke in
favor of the fair. It is evident that
there is some sentiment for the ex
position as well as against it in Mor
row county. The same sentiment
without doubt prevails in this coun
ty. Were it certain that Portland
alone would finance the fair, few
people here would have any objec
tion. But in the minds of many there
lingers the suspicion that the state
will be called upon later for four or
five million dollars to pull the expo
sition through in decent shape. They
also face the certainty that state and
county exhibits will cost another.mil

KARL L BEACH, Lexington, Oregon
Ai your motor begins to "wnn up, what happens to
the oil f It thins, of coarse. But just low does it thin and
bow docs it act when subjected to the high operating
Upon the answer to that question depends the proper
lubrication of your car.
Zerolene, being made from selected crudes and scientif.
ically refined by our patented vacuum process, resists
engine heat; it retains its lubricating "body" at all op
erating temperatures. It does not decompose or "break
down." It clings to the bearing surfaces and maintains a
perfect Sim of lubricant
g4 Minimum of Soft, Flaky Carbon
If the motor is getting proper lubrication, some oil slips
past the pistons and is consumed by the flame of com
bustion. In burning, all oils deposit carbon on the cylin
der walls and cylinder heads. Inferior oils deposit a hard,
gritty carbon in considerable quantity.
It is this hard carbon deposit which causes pre-lgnldon,
breaking and sticking of cylinder rings, overheating, loss
of power, warping and splitting of exhaust velvet, and
wear of valve stems.
Zerolene deposits a minimum of carbon of a soft, flaky
nature which can do no damage and is usually blown
out with the exhaust.
Lubricate exclusively with Zerolene, adopting the rec
ommendations embodied In the Zerolene chart of recom
mendations, and you will develop the maximum power,
peed and gasoline mileage of your car.
