Requirements of Secre; .
tary of State Stressed
By Edward E. Brodie
Publisher of Oregon City enterprise,
Ex-President of National Editorial As
sociation, and former American Minister
to the Kingdom of Siam.
When Hal Hoss came to Oregon
City, a gangling youth, about fifteen
years ago, he started In his charac
teristic and energetic fashion to lay
substantial foundation for suc
cess. His experience in newspaper
work at that time was somewhat
rudimentary, but it had the advan
tage of variable elements in max u
ommented at the bottom ana pro
gressed upward through the several
channels of the editorial depart
ments and Into the business office
where he proceeded to make the
most of opportunity. It was not for
him a long step to a position of re
sponsible management in which he
coupled the qualities of initiating
policies with those of carrying them
to a sure termination, uver a per
iod of six years of newspaper direc
tion, he developed steadily, building
good will, which Is the most valua
ble of newspaper assets, for the
property with which he was identi
fied, and forming close and lasting
contacts throughout the s,tate.
Occupied as he was in a place
that demanded constant applica
tion, Mr. Hoss shook irksome de
tails from his shoulders and tied
into his job an active appreciation
of public service. He became
worker for the brothers of the craft,
acting indefatigably for their Inter
ests, without expectation or hope
of reward. It was only natural that
his efforts would bring him a flock
of non-salaried and honorary posi
tions which he filled acceptably, and
it was inevitable that his activities,
as their scope broadened, would be
accorded recogniiton which came
to him in the form of an urgent
invitation to join, as private secre
tary to the governor, the state ad
ministration. Some of his friends,
including the writer of these lines,
shook their heads, not then realiz
ing that Hal Hoss would be unwill
ing to stagnate in a place that
seemed to offer little future. But
his study and interest in the affairj
of his native state went beyond his
immediate place. He made the most
of a membership on the parole
board and became a student of
penal problems, accepting director
ship in the national association.
There was no good reason, In the
mind of Hal Hoss, why the prln
ciples of sound business should not
be applied to the business of the
people. It seemed to him that pub
lic service ought to mean more than
a mere political job, and that the
same fundamental ideas that he
utilized in newspaper offices o .Id
and should be put Into ( practice
through the conduct of an Import
ant state office. He was not in
cumbered with political entangi--ments
and was prepared and equip
ped to transact the state's business
on the basis of common sense, hav
ing in mind that the taxpayer's
dollar is not a gift of God, but is
entitled to economic consideration
and should be stretched as far as
practicable with proper results as
a primary objective. .
These facts may be construed as
arguments for the nomination and
election of Hal Hoss fof secretary
of state. He has become person
ality. His friends are . not giving
his candidacy perfunotory support
but they are enthusiastically urg
ing the people of Oregon to choose
a man who has always made good
who has a clear conception of ser-
ice, who is young and alert and
who is free to promise and who has
the ability to deliver that particular
character of an administration that
our citizenship irequires. The im
portance of the' office demands se
lection of a man who is qualified by
temperament and experience to ren
der a high type of service to the
public. Hal Hoss is that man.

MORE AND BETTER LAMBS .
SUGGESTED BY LINDGREN
Lower cost of unit production is
needed if Oregon Is to enjoy fullest
success in the llestock business,
thinks H. A. Lindgren, extension
specialist in animal husbanury at
Oregon State Agricultural college.
'One of the big problems of the
sheep business In this state is tha1.
the breeders are not getting a lare
enough lamb crop," Mr. Lindgren
said. "The state of Washington re
ports an average of 120 per cent
lambing while the average for this
stale is only 80 to 90 per cent Mjre
attention paid to breeding and
lambing time is profitable. Ewes
giving a large amount of milk and
having a good heavy fleece with lots
of quality together with good con
formation are I what make sheep
pay. This state has very good mar
keting conditions for both sheep
and cattle when handled correctly."
