MARROW county's road program
for the year is pottinp under fu'l
sway, ar.d when completed wiU facil
itate greatly the aceesibi ity of
Heppner by the outside world. The
state will have competed the Willow
creek hichway. giving an excellent
macadam road sll the way from Ar
lington to Heppner, which in turn
connects up with a macadam road to
Seufcrt snd parerrent on in to Tort
land. Going out northeast of Hepp
ner toward Pendleton, the state is
s:so doing wore, road work, and the
end of the summer will find a macad
am road the moit of the distance to
the Umatilla county metropolis, in
tervened by only a comparatively
short piers of dirt road.
On the county proprara th main
project is the Heppner-Hardman mar
ket road, which it is contemplated
will be finished from Heppner over
Heppner hill to the comer of the
Hendrix place. This will be pood,
water-bound macadam, and an im
provtment long dreamt of by farmers
of that section. Any one driving out
that way at present can well appre
ciate what a boon this will be to those
who must travel that way con&tnntiy.
Up Willow creek above HfCjrt.tr the
county is expending aoproiitwately
$J000 in grading the vnoaiKnin road
above the Dexter plac. l,ich will
provi de a ve ry pc od Hi rt roa d for
wood and lumber hauling next tail.
Although the county i ,;o-nowhat
short of funds this year it is cariy
ing out a road program that is indeed
commendable. It was iiwv-ary to
borrow considerable noney from the
bonding fund to keep tne market road
work moving, but this will be repaid
when the market road riont-y c tmes
in this fall. The county was com
pelled to do this to pet the j-tate
money which has to be matched 50 10,
Good highways are ior?ruurors of
prosperity, and Morrow county day
well look to better days ahead.
AMERICAN LEGION VS. SYN
DICALISM THE American Legion, a patriotic
order of ex-service men, is com
batting the I. W. W. by every means
it is lawfully possible to employ.
Th proposed general strike in the
lumber industry, that is to paralyze
logging camps and sawmills on May
1 will be carried out by the Wobblies
if present pians mature.
The American Legion, composed of
men who served in tne wor'd war and
leaders who were over seas, stands
for American industries and peaceful
solution of labor problem.
It is opposed to syndicalism, to
sabotage, to picketing ar,U force meth
odsin fact to everytisg the I. W.
W. beiieve in and advocate.
The Legion was organized to pre
serve law and order, the I. W. W. to
destroy and tear down by organizing
corrupt and disloyal elements.
Many will remember the crimes
committed by the syndicalists in the
lumber manufacturing city of Cen
tralis, where the American Legion
organized to prevent rioting and de
struction of industries.
Can any sane American give a sin
gle reason for disturbing the prosper
ous conditions now prevailing in the
lumber industry to gratify the ambi
tions of the Wobblies to establish a'
reign of terrorism. The Manofae- j
CHOOSING A COLLEGE
PRINCIPALS and teachers of rural
high schools should help the stu
dents that intend to continue their
studies beyond high school, to select
the college or university that seems
bet fitted for each individual stu
dent's needs. Out of the 105,000 boys
and girls that are being graduated
yearly from rural high schools, 45,
000 intend to go on to normal school,
college or university. Very often
even though tne student may know
juft what line of work he wishes to
take up, he does not know what school
to attend to get that work, selecti a
college because it is near, or he has
a friend there, or some one from the
college has canvassed the high school
for pupils. These are not the best
ways to decide a question that may
FARM LABOR SUPPLY SHORT
ONE YEAR ago there was a surplus
of farm labor of about twelve per
ccr.t. ar.d now the Department of Ag
riculture reports a shortage of about
the same percentage below require
ments. Many farm operators report that at
present high wages they cannot af
ford to employ any labor on the farm,
and will only put in crops that they
can handle with family labor.
Growing scarcity of common labor
snd education of the coming genera
tions toward professional lines will
continue to affect our country in the
direction of higher cost of living.
WHERE IT BEGAN
GEORGE W PEAVY, who is dean of
the school of forestry, Oregon
Agricultural College, and was for
merly in the United States Forest
Service, has written a pamphlet on
"The Commercial Forests of Oregon"
in which he gives the real reason for
the slowness with which the people of
America have waked up to the fatal
results of forest destruction. He tells
us how the pioneers in the infant col
onies along the Atlantic faced what
seemed to them a limitless forest and
had to fight their way through for
two centuries or more. From this
came "that peculiar attitude which
--o perplexed the early leaders of for
est conservation the notion that a
forest tree is of no consequence, and
that any forest can be used or ab
, used just as the individual pleases.
It has taken fifty years of tireless
effort on the part of such men as the
late Dr. B. E. Fernow to substitute
the ideas of public welfare and the
economic importance of forests for
this old-time carelessness.
There is still much to be done to
educate the present and all eoming
generations to a full sense of the
place of forests in modern civiliza
tion. We are at times in serious
danger of thinking more of the sec
ondary uses of forest lands than of
their primary and permanent value
which is simply the production of
timber. That is the main thing for
which they exist.
POLITICS VS. THE CONSTITUTION
IF PRESS dispatches are correct, the
1 "open shop question will come to
the front as a campaign issue in 1924.
It seems ridiculous that our great
republic should be torn apart poli
tically over a principle basic to our
constitution which guarantees free
dom and protection to the individual.
A man who is against the open
shop must be against the freedom
and protection guaranteed in the con
stitution. What candidate would an
nounce himself against the very foun
dation stone of our government? Why
try to drag in the open shop as a
political issue? It is done by the
radicals to stir up class hatred and
an agitation against so-called "big
business" and sound government.
If our laws fail to equally protect
a union, or a non-union man in his
right to live and work, we no longer
have a free government. What pub
lic official would dare to uphold a pol
icy which would deny any man the
right to work at a lawful occupation
.-imply because he did not belong to
some labor organization?

ISN'T it strange how the old copy
book maxims work out. Here we
have a New York State legislator who
suggests a law to compel the courts
to declare a man or a woman sane or
insane whenever an examination is
demanded. Funny kind of a law, isn't
it and yet a court decision that a
man is sane at a given date pinned
to the will he makes would stop the
cioggmg of our courts with perni
cious lawsuits, and enable a man to
do as he wishes with his own. So
childish maxima loom before us an
ounce of prevention is worth a pound
of cure. Good to recall the copybook
once in a while.
