Tort and. Orfgon. May 5, lf24.
To the Editor:
I would like through the clurrr.i
of your paper to call stter.uon to the
importance and duty of every repi;
Ured voter in the nthte votii.p at the
primary and aii other .c:ion. The
ripht of franchise carries tth it a
pricfif-ia priviiepe. and imposes s
serious and noien.n duty which should
be performrJ. It if a sad comment
ary on our Rtpul- icar. form of pov-
mment that lepivauon of preat im
portanrt f re q a n t y is p iced upon
the gtatutc b ok of this ftnte by a
very swl! percentage of registered
voter. This is also true of the se
lection of our public official? city,
county and sti.te. In many elections
even the most important officials
heretofore have been elected with
probably not over twenty-five per
cent of the registered vote.
The citixen who is m qualified elec
tor and neglects to go to the polls
and vote on election d&y should be
the last person to complain about
the election of incompetent officials
and the enactment of objectionable
laws. Instead, be invariably is the
first to protest, unmindful of the fact
that the real responsibility for the
very situation of which he complains
belongs to himself and hundreds of
other equally nepliper.t electors for
evadir.p their duty as citizens.
Another class of residents of this
state is equally censurable and re
sponsible for their condition, I refer
to those residents who, although eli
gible to citiienship, frequently neg
lect taking out necessary papers and
qualifying as citiiens for a preat
many years after arriving in this
country. Even then, it is too often
the case they are impelled to that
action by some reason personal to
themselves, rather than the more
laudable purpose of participating in
the election of deserving officials and
the enactment of good and beneficial
laws as well as the defeat of vicious
and unworthy measures. Bad as this
is it is not comparable to citizens of
this country who neplect their duty
to vote thereby failing to measure
up to the full measure of good cit
izenship. It certainly is a privilege
to be a part of the electorate in this
state w-here each voter is in effect a
legislator. This in itself emphasizes
the duty of every citizen to vote at
Good government is assured in pro
portion as the electorate participates
therein. A great majority of citi
zens in every community desire good
government, clean, trustworthy offi
cials and legislation for the public
good. The best antidote for unfaith
ful public officials and undesirable
laws, now elected or enactetLby plur
ality vote, is a general participation
by all electors in all elections. When
the voters, by going to the polls,
will express their demand for honest
officials and clean laws, then and not
until then will the best men in every
community consent to become candi
dates for public office.

LEXINGTON TEACHERS CHOSEN.
Some of the Unclin g ft-rce. for the
Lexington school has beer, chosen and
it is expected the full corps will be
e.ectcd as t-oon as the newly elec
ted prnicipal. Prof. Frio Kelly of
Athena, can consult with the school
The teachers selected Wsides Mr.
Kelly are Miss Myrtle McNeal, Sth
grade. Miss Gladys Ber.pe. 5th and
6:h grades; Miss Audrey Grogan, 3rd
and 4th grades, and Miss Pearl Vale,
lt and -r.d grades.
Prof, Wallace Kellogg, who has
been the head of the Lexington school
for the past two years, and who was
re-elected to the position lor another
year, decided not to accept, and he
and Mrs. Kellogg contemplate re
turning est to l.-.e former home of
Mrs. Kellogg in Ohio.
j Much credit is being given Repre
sentative Nicholas J. Smnott. of Ore
gon, for the overwhelmingly favor
able report given the McNary -Hau-gen
export corporation bill by the
; house committee on agriculture,
j While Mr. Sinnott is not a member
of the committee, much of his time
has been devoted to the bill during
j the last two months according to
, farm rperesentatives who are at the
1 capitol in its support.
) "Mr. Sinnott is one of the western
j house members who has devoted ev
I ery energy to the support of farm
relief legislation," said George Jew
; ett, general manager of the American
Wheat Growers Associated. Hi per
sonal acquaintance in the house, his
clear knowledge of farming condi
tions, and his ability to discuss tht
export bill comprehensively, have
made his work invaluable.
"If the bill passes, and we certainly
expect it will, the farmers of Amer
ica will owe a large debt to western
representatives such as Mr. Sinnott
who have worked indefatigably for
its success. It is surprising what
small knowledge of farming condi
tions existed among eastern legisla
tors until the measure was brought
to their attention, and only through
the work of our western men have
those from other parts of the Vnited

If you haven't traveled the Horseshce
Route out of Merced to Yosemite in one
of the Pierce-Arrow touring cars oper
ated by the Yosemite Stage and Turn
pike Company, you've missed something.
But whether or not you have made
this trip, you'll be interested, as a motor
ist, in knowing that the twenty-five
Pierce-Arrow cars used in this service
are lubricated with Zerolene. The man
ager of this famous stage line writes:
"We have been operating a stage line since
1911 and have always used Zerolene. Re
cently we disposed of some cars that had
been in our service for ten years, and dur
ing that period none of them had ever had
a bearing scraped."
Whether you drive a Pierce-Arrow or
a Ford, the use of Zerolene, of the proper
body, will not only cut down your oil bill,
but give you greater gasoline mileage, less
carbon, lower upkeep costs,
and a longer life for your car.
FBig users refuse to pay trib
ute to the old superstition that
there is something mysteri
ously "better" about "eastern"
oils why should you pay
improved oil for
