The Power of Song
Columns uplifted high.
Or llTlng bronxe.
Or stone carved skillfully ,
Never to men can give
Their deathless mead.
Like son that mate to live
Each noble deed.
If poets had not come
To grace their name,
Virtue herself were dumb
And tongueless Fame,
A nd dead the memory
Of Hector's worth.
But winged with song they fly
Throughout the earth.

The old id age, In time of peace

be inevitaole, a state of which
the recurrence may always be an
ticpated, is the expression of a
fundamental axiom. But gran tin a
the truth of both the premise and
the conclusion, we hav still to ask
ourselves the question. What is
To some minds this question
admits but one possible answer.
To them.praration means armies
and navies. They think only of
certain material instruments of
warfare to be used on Ian or sea.
in the depths of water or in the
heights of air.So they vote mill
ions in money and are ready to
devote millions of youth to train
ingin the art of destruction .they
are ready to break the backs of
the taxpayers of today with the
burden of preparation for the
battles of tomorrow.
But these people fail to grasp
the idea that the progress of time
and the course of human events
are fast relegating the approved
machinery of war to the junk
piles of antiquity.The day is close
at hand when the batleship and
the siege gun will be as obsolete
as the trireme and the crossbow,
Of instruments of defense and
aggression there remain but men
and money, the fudamenta! bases
of peace and war.
' That government makes the
best prepararation for war which
devotes its energies to the task
of promoting the contentment of
its people and the payment of its
debtl.The best provision for the
war to come is not tp be found in
battleship construction but inbond
redemption; not in maintaining
armies but in raisig men who have
reason to love their country .
We need not fear so much that
the dread alarm of war shall find
as without the immediate imple
of war as that it shall find us bur
dened with a load of debt incurr
ed in past wars.
The National debt now totals
twenty one billion dollars. The U.
S. Treasury has arranged for the
payment of five hundred million
dollars annually on the principal
of this debt. If this policy is car
ried out, in twenty years from
or in 1945, the U.S. will still have
outstanding bonds to the amount
of (10,000,000.000.00 with an an
nual interest charge of above $400
000,000.00; the annual interest is
now $940.000,000.00;or $8.39 for
very man, woman and child in the
; Nearly one billion dollarsof this
load of debt is a legacy entailed

Intercoastal shipments of flour
during the firt twelve days of
March amounted to 1,500 tons
compared with 1,870 tons during
the entire month of March, 1921.
This means greater shipments to
almost all of the intercoastal
cities and particularly is this
true to ports in the South At
lantic. An instance of this is
shown in Charleston to which
port last year there were shipped
280 tons of flour. So far during
the month of March shipments
have amounted to 294 tons or
more than for the entire year of
1924. Besides this however,
shipments of 192 tons were made
in February and 527 tons in Jan
uary. This makes four times as
much flour as was shipped during
last year. Another example of
this is to Mobile. During 1924
shipments amounted to 1,728
tons and during February one
shipment to this city was made
amounting to 933 tons and in
January shipments amounted to
343 tons making nearly as much
during these two months as for
the entire previous year. This
is made possible by the regular
and frequent service between
Portland and the various Atlan
tic ports.Port of Portland.
While we do not think there is
cause for serious alarm, there is
no question that influeuza is more
prevalent than it has been for
some tims in Oregon .Reports
from other parts of the United
States show that there are many
cases of the disease.Not withstand
ing the great amount of study
that has been devoted to influen

measures for its complete control

That Million Dollar Motor
Mr. Long, one o(, the travel
ing salesmen of the Durant
Motor Co. called at the Indepen
dent office Monday, and took the
devil out for a little trip over the
hills. Incidentally he gave
demonstration of the 'power of
the million dollar motor by climb
ing one of the rqughest and
steepest roads he could find, in
high and at a speed of fifteen
miles per hour.
Ckan-up at Arlington
Let's everybody do some one
thing this spring to make our
yard, or our place of business
more attractive to those who
stay with us this summer.
Plant a tree., some flowers, a
garden, paint, cleanup and make
some added improvement if you
can. And remember when you
plan these improvements, than
your own home town merchants
can supply your needs. Arling

indications that the world crop

reason, to suspect an organized
