Gym Vote Coming.
A T THE next meeting of the
board of directors of School
District No. 1, will be presented
the petitions asking for the con
struction of the proposed auditor
ium-gymnasium. As the petitions
have signautres of a sufficient per
centage of the voters of the dis
trict it is presumed that the school
board will take action looking to
the calling of a special election to
vote on the bond issue.
There has been no undue haste
manifested on the part of those
promoting this move to get the
question up for decision. It has
rather been a policy of "watchful
waiting," enough having been put
forth to give an idea of what is de
sired and time given for reflection
However, as all such matters must
finally come to a head if anything
is to be done, it will now be up to
the board of directors to put the
question up for the action of the
voters of the district. We expect
that thprA will h enmp nrAttv
strong opposition to the bond is
sue, but we also expect that the
measure will carry; we are quite
sure this will be the case if the
proper kind of educational pro
gram is followed. We are sure,
also, that those who favor making
this addition to the school facil
ities of the district would not de
sire to have any other than a frank
wide-open campaign put on one
that will give a thorough under
standing of all items regarding
both taxes and manner of building
to be constructed out of the funds
voted. Let us all be prepared to
give the question careful consid
eration, realizing that the district
is up against providing additional
facilities tor caring tor the in
creased attendance must have
more class rooms, and that there
is also vital need of just such a
building as it is proposed to erect
should the bond issue carry.
And now comes a man from
Canada who says that he owned
the bull that chased young George
Young, the Catalina swimmer, in
to a pond and forced him to learn
to swim. Prospect for another
claimant of a portion of that $25,

What Have They to
BUTLER, president of Co
lumbia University, wants the re
publican party to steal Al Smith's
thunder and go him one better.
The Smith idea is to nullify the
eighteenth amendment by not en-
Children Do Not Know
The midnight hour of Christmas Eve
Has come, and all the house is still.
Those little ones who bravely fought
To conquer sleep, and wait until
Old Santa Gaus had found their door,
Are dreaming of a wondrous land
With avenues of brilliant trees
And loads of toys on every hand.
Yes, children dream of Santa Claus,
And do not know that while

The promises that have been made
They do not know that every year
The faithfulness of mother-love
Is what fills Christmas Day
They do not understand! Eut
As men and fathers, surely
That life is beautiful because
Our wives and mothers make
As we again commemorate
A Baby's birth in Bethlehem,
And think of all that mothers give,

forcing it. Dr. cutler on
er nana proposes repeal ot
amendment as well as repeal of -J
the olstead act.
If the people of the United
States do not want prohibition the
Rutler theory is preferable to the
Tammany theory. Dr. Butler is
at least straightforward about the
matter. He is within his rights
in proposing repeal of the amend
ment and that may be the logical
course to take if the wets wish to
get away from the dry regime.
There are difficulties ahead,
however, and they are very ser
ious. For instance, what does Dr.
Butler propose in lieu of the
eighteenth amendment? Has he
something better to offer or does
he merely wish to repeal the
amendment and return to the old
days of saloon rule? If so he will
be wasting his time. No one wish
es to return to the old time con
ditions. It is doubtful if more
than a handful of states would so
vote and it takes two-thirds of the
states of the union to amend the
It is easy to criticise conditions
but if the Butlers and the Al
Smiths wish to accomplish any
thing they must be able to suggest
something better. To this end of
the subject they seem to give no
thought. What they are offering
thus far would merely make pres
ent conditions worse. They are
ready to tear down what we have
but they have no plans for new
buildings. Seemingly they will
leave that detail to the distillers,
the brewers and saloon-keepers.
If that is the scheme no one need
be in doubt as to what to expect.
Latest reports would seem to
indicate that the McNary-Haugen
bill will pass congress, but is ex
pected to receive the veto of Pres
ident Coolidge. Many members
of congress, having in mind their
political welfare, but being pri
vately opposed to tjhe bill, will sup
port the measure, hoping that the
president will give it the axe. The
president will do this very thing
if he is convinced that the measure
is not sound and for the best in
terests of the entire people, re
gardless of his personal political
Uncle Sam's Police.
AFTER more than three years
of world wide search, Hugh
De Autremont, one of three broth
ers charged with murder, train
holdup and attempted robbery of
the United States mails, has been
captured in far-away Manila.
The story of the crime in the
Siskiyou tunnel is familiar. It
was particularly cold blooded and
cruel, but it was not so much that
three trainmen and a mail clerk
were killed and the lives of
trainload of passengers placed in
jeopardy that has inspired the
long untiring search for the sus
pected criminals. It was the fact
that attack was made upon the in
violate dignity of the United
States mails. That is an assault
that Uncle Sam neither forgives
nor forgets, and the patient vigil
ance ot the postomce inspectors
is never relaxed until the offender
is caught.
The result shows what may be
accomplished by a detective force
which is composed of trained men
working as a unit under intelli
gent direction and counting time,
money or effort as nothing so long
as the end is accomplished. It is
by such organization that Scotland
Yard has won its fame, and crime

BcErank Crane Says
A LONDON judge has listed what he considers the Fourteen
Great mistakes of Life, as follows:
1. It's a mistake to attempt to set your own standards of
right and wrong and expect everybody to conform to them.
2. It's a mistake to try to measure the enjoyment of
others by our own.
3. It's a mistake to expect uniformity of opinion in this
4. It's a mistake to look for judgment and experience in
5. It's a mistake to endeavor to mould all dispositions
alike. !
6. It's a mistake not to yield to unimportant trifles. ',
7. It's a mistake to look for perfection in our own ac-
8. It's a mistake to worry ourselves and others about '
what can not be remedied.
9. It's a mistake not to alleviate, if we can, all that '
needs alleviation. 1
10. It's a mistake not to make allowances for the weak- i
ness of others.
11. It's a mistake to consider anything impossible which
we ourselves cannot perform. ;
12. It's a mistake to believe only what the finite mind can ;
grasp. '
13. It's a mistake to live as if the moment, the time, the
day were so important that it would live forever.
14. It's a mistake to estimate people by some outside
quality, for it is that within which makes the man.
Lists have been made by all sorts of eminent men, including
Washington and Franklin, for the conduct of life, and they are
all more or less useful for the ordinary man.
The art of life is steering the middle way, avoiding errors
on both sides, and it is interesting to have these reefs pointed
out upon which many a human bark has been shipwrecked.
It may repay us all to examine this list of the London judgte
and see wherein we have been mistaken in the past and to avoid
mistakes in the future.
There is nothing positive about the list. They are all things
not to do, and not things to do. But the avoidance of these mis
takes may save us much embarrassment.
Life is a perilous path at best and to make the journey safe
ly from the cradle to the grave involves much circumspection,
and perhaps this list may be of help.
in England reduced to a minimum.
Recently Judge Taft called at
tention to the fact that one of the
chief handicaps to law enforce
ment in America is the fact that
our policy is divided between
many conflicting and unrelated
agencies. City, county, state and
federal officers, many of them po
litical appointees without training
or experience, work in their sep
arate orbits without coordination
or common direction. They form
an unknotted net through which
the criminal escapes with ease.
If each state had a machinery
for the detection and apprehen
sion of criminals, as well designed
and handled as the department of
inspection in the federal postof
fiice, we should see an astonishing
decrease in crime.
There is no reason why human
life should not command the same
respect as a mail bag full of let
ters, and there is no reason why
the crmiinal who destroys the one
should not be as determinedly fol
lowed as the one who molests the
other. If that were done, we
should soon lower that appaling
record for homicides which pro
claims us the most lawless nation
in the world.

PASSAGE by the House of the
Wilson river toll road bill,
while not affecting this part of the
state directly, nevertheless com
mits Oregon to a toll road princi
ple obnoxious and archaic. Lo
calized though the Wilson river
toll road would be, application of
the toll road principle will be
statewide. And we want none of
it. As a matter of truth the active
proponents of the bill are well
aware of the opposition generally
to toll roads and for that reason
they are pressing the bill through,
expecting thereby to force a new
and expensive highway upon the
taxpayers of the state to satisfy
their own selfish interests. For,
granted state permission to build,
construction will be easily and
quickly financed by private inter
ests, these interests knowing full
well that popular demand through
opposition to paying tolls will re
quire the state to buy the road and
add it to its highway system. East
ern Oregon should arouse itself
and array itself against this meas
ure that is a political expedient to
add another expensive road to the
already highly-developed system
of western Oregon, which, per
force, will deny eastern Oregon
the attention its under-developed
system of highways requires and
merits. Wallowa Sun.
