Better Understanding
A MEETING of Touch Import
ance to lo(;al wool men was
held at Pendleton, on Sunday, as
will be noted from our news col
umns. . This . was composed of
representatives of the Umatilla
Permittees association, and the
executive committee of the Ore
gon Wool Growers association on
the one hand, and officials of the
Forest Service on the other. The
incentive for the meeting was the
discussion of grazing fees. As
the report shows, there had been
a consideration heretofore of the
Rachford report, which attempt
ed to establish the commercial
value of summer grazing on the
National Forests. This report had
recommended fees approximately
400 per cent in excess of rates in
force, apd was not acceptable to
the permittees, as a matter of
course. The Casement report
came in later, because of the un
animous protest that went up to
the department, and its recom
mendations were near the point
of a 200 per cent increase, and
was not acceptable to the users
of the forests. So the controversy
has gone on, with the stockmen
keyed up to a point where they
were not at all backward in airing
their grievances.
Now that the question of fees
haslseen settled for the time be
ing, the way seems to be open for
a better understanding between
the powers that rule over the Na
tional Forests of Oregon and the
stockmen who have permits to
run their cattle and sheep on these
lands for the summer months.
That there has. been room for
complaint on the part of the per
mittees because of the arbitrary
and unnecessary rulings of the de
partment, there is no question;
and the stockmen of this county
as well as those of the other coun
ties p.re justly entitled to register
vigorous protests. There has been
much annoyance in many cases,
according to complaints that have
reached this paper, and the gen
eral complaint th?.t the actual ad
ministration is carried on by those
who do not understand, and who
to all appearances :li not care to
undentmd, the conditions, and
consequently ignore any advice or
counsel of the stockmen, has
tended in the direction of misun
derstanding rather than coopera
tion. The wise stockman, of
course, has had to ignore the for
est ranger and take his troubles
to the higher-ups, and it would
seem that the shell of the bu-

BtFraak Crane Says
A ND now comes along an astronomer of the Yerkes Obser-
vatory, near Chicago, arid says that there is probably going
to be an explosion of the sun which will doom the earth and its
inhabitants to extinction and may happen any minute, although
again it may not happen for a million years or so.
. Another astronomer out in Benkeley, California, says that
the universe is 194 quadrillion miles in diameter.- One hun
dred ninety-four quadrillions is all there is, there isn't any more.
Ordinarily statements like this leave us dumb and awe
stricken. We accept them as true because we have no way of
contradicting them.
They are like the statements that used to be made about
theology, when they argued whether one million or ten angels
could stand on the point of a pin. Nobody knew anything
about it anyhow and so the declarers were safe. ' .
We read somewhera in our youth of a. story of a man who
professed to know everything. Ask him how many fishes there
were in the river and he could tell you to the last minnow.
There were exactly seventeen million and ninty-six. He also
knew the number of nails that went into the bridge and the num
ber of stars in the heavens and the number hairs on your head
and could tell you the number exactly in a minute's notice. This
was all right because nobody could dispute it, but it was simply
a bold bluff. .
If you say there are nine trillion blades of grass on the lawn
nobody is going to take the trouble to count them. Your state
ment goes unchallenged. '-
A lot of this scientific data is pure bluff intended to awe the
common man and it succeeds pretty well. We have passed the
age when people are stricken dumb by theological dictum, but
we are in the zone now where people are bludgeoned by scien
tifie'data. ;
Science has done some wonderful .things. It predicts an
eclipse of the moon to the minute and tells us how electricity will
act and all sorts of things, but that is no reason why scientists
should lay back their ears and talk lightly about things that are
manifestly pure guesses,
The sun may explode tomorrow and again it may not. One
" man's guess is as good as another's. We have made some prog
ress in finding out about earthquakes and we have elaborate
theories as to how they occur, but just when an earthquake is
going to hit us we know as well as the scientists. .
The best thing we can do is to run along and sell our papers
and if the works blow up we are as well off as anybody and no
worse. . .
reaucracy may yet be punctured.
Stockmen say there have been
men in charge of the southern end
of the Umatilla Forest that actu
ally understood the conditions and
could cooperate successfully in
the protection of the interests of
both the stockraiser and the for
est service, but as a rule these
men are retired, with no apparent
reason other that the. fact that
their services were not just what
the bureau, wanted.
The government officials appear
to be laboring under the impres
sion that the stockman has no
other desire than to destroy the
pasturage in the forest area, when
as a matter of fact this is just the
thing he does not wish to do. Per
mits run for 10 years, and it is
not reasonable to suppose that a
permittee is going to do anything
that will lessen his chances for
good feed on his allotment when
he has no other place to go each
succeeding year. Other questions
arise, and many arbitrary rules
have been enforced, all to the
added expense of the permittees,
and tending to make the burden
of the stockgrower that much
Commenting along this . line,
The Oregon Woolgrower states:
The range industry means much to
Oregon it means everything to much
Jtmesjhvis Hays
1 iSA."Si'
of Oregon. With the exception of
the wheat areas of Umatilla, Morrow,
Sherman and Wasco counties, and
some fruit lands in Hood River, the
entire area of this state east of the
Cascade mountains is a stock country
pure and simple. A country in which
the counties are dependent on the
stock industry and lands owned by
stockmen for a very large part of
their assessed valuation from which
their taxes for operating expenses
are derived.
The average stockman in Oregon is
not a large operator; this applies to
both the sheep and cattle industries.
The woolgrowcr with from 1,200 to
1,500 head of ewes constitutes the
majority of the growers, and by the
time he pays his overhead in taxes
and interest, his labor, and makes a
sort, of living, there' is but little left
to splurge on. As a matter of fact,
just getting by is his main object."
So it can be seen that these
annoyances that have been tacked
on in the way of penalties, bed
ding out, and other rulings that
have required the hiring of addi
tional help have all tended to in
crease the overhead of the sheep
man and caused a query in his
mind as to whether or not the
policy of the Forest Service is
just what it should be, and if it
is not just such a policy that will
eventually force him out of the
game and lead to'the destruction
of one of the great industries of
these Eastern Orgon counties.
The day of a better understanding
between the stockman and the
powers that rule over him with
reference to his use of the forest
range, seems to be dawning,' and
it should be welcomed on the part
of all interested.
No Cause For Alarm. .
FROM information given us by
the city health officer, there
seems to be some alarm on the
part of the people of Heppner be
cause of the infantile paralysis
situation. So far there has not
been a case here, and none in the
county. Two cases, only, have
been reported at Pendleton and
these are under control and rap
idly reaching a state of normal
health. A family has just moved
to Heppner from Southern Ore
gon where two of the children had
the disease. These have fully re
covered, however, have passed
the period of quarantine and dis
infection, and the health officer
reports that there can be no possi
ble danger now of their communi
cating the disease. One of these
children will be entered in school
here, and as all the conditions
have been complied with concern
ing disinfection, the health officer
has no power to restrain the child
from entering school; further
more, there is no need of fear on
this account. As a matter of fact,
people have been altogether too
greatly alarmed over this paraly
sis scare, which has been played
up to an unnecessary extent by
the City dailies.
A YOUNG woman is caught
stealing mooey to buy tomb
stones for her mother and sister.
That the young woman should
steal to buy tombstones is a re
flection to her common sense.
The Angel Gabriel is amazing
ly accurate, in memory and mem
orandum. - There is no possibility
of his forgetting or mistaking any
one, even though buried in ' the
sea. Besides, science- proves that
the earth and men on it will last
at least orte hundred million years.
No tombstone could outlive that
period. ,
Thousands of poor widows and
daughters, by the way, rob and
impoverish themselves to provide
tombstones and elaborate funer
als for husbands and fathers that
never did much for them. The
poorer families suffer most in this
way, and clergymen "should dis
courage, regardless of : sexton's
protest. .
The Highway Problem
"vREGON people want no re-
J duction in highway revenues
that would jeopardize highway ex
pansion, states The Manufacturer.
If the license fee should be cut to
$3, road building in Oregon could
not go on. Here is why: The cut
to $3 would take $3,900,000 from
the license total and reduce" the
total highway - fund to only $4,-
100,000. Against this $4,100,000
would be the following unavoid
able expenditures: Maintenance,
$1,750,000 a year; interest on
outstanding bonds, $1,774,118 a
year; retirement of maturing
bonds, $1,975,000 a year; cost of
administration, about $150,000 a
year. And Oregon must match
the federal aid fund, which aver
ages about $1,300,000 a year, or
there will be no federal aid. This
added to other items means a total
outgo of about $7,000,000 a year.
A cut to a $3 license fee would re
duce the total revenue to $4,100,
000. Accroding to estimates given
out by State Tax Commissioner
Fisher, there will have to be paid
by direct taxation on real prop
erty some $52,971,718, which un
der the present license system, is
being paid by the people who use
the roads the motorists. Too
many people own automobiles and
use the highways, who are not
owners of real property, and the
present license system is the way
to make them bear the proportion
of tax burden that will otherwise
have to be borne by the property
owner now carrying about all the
load he can bear. In another col
umn will be found an article from
the publicity department of the
Oregon State Motor association,
which discusses this question in
detail. We direct the attention of
our readers to this.
Altoona Tribune,
'Third notice." Every editor has
received them. The postmaster sends
them to the editor. The postmaster
is not to blame. For instance, there
is a man by the name of well, say
Tim Snort who sent three notices to
stop his paper. He did not want it
any longer; we wondered what was
the matter. Upon investigating our
subscription list we found that Tim
was short $5.70. He had never paid
a cent and yet he stopped his paper as
a matter of economy 'to us. A few
evenings ago we stopped in a church
and Tim's melodious voice rang out
clear in the song, 'tfesus Paid It All."
We may have been mistaken, but his
earnestness impressed us. The next
day we sent him a receipt in full, beg
ging his pardon for not knowing that
he had made an assignment of his
liabilities to the Lord.
