Speaking of ultra-violet ray treat
ments for children and grown-ups
Did you know forty million hens
now use these same rays and prove
their efficacy by yielding 40 to 50
per cent more eggs?
Science has discovered hens lay
best when exposed directly to the
sun's ultra-violet rays which they
receive in ample quantity during
summer. In fall and winter, how
ever, little or none reaches them,
for violet rays cannot penetrate
through ordinary glass into the hen
Therefore, science presents the
hens with special windows of a
translucent material that does
transmit the health-giving rays.
And presto the deed is done. The
new "windows" are strongly con
structed over a wire base, can be
bought by the foot, and installed
without expert help.
To the many farm women who
have experimented long with egg
laying formulas, this knowledge
that concentrated sunlight Is all a
good hen needs is most encourag

A roll of paper toweling should
be in every kitchen, for it has many
economical uses, such as wiping out

WHY THE RECLAMMATION
SERVICE STARTS NO
It is strange how partisan politi
cal bias warps the vision and mis
guides the pen. The Oregon Jour
nal, under ordinary circumstances
an ably edited paper whose staff
can calmly and factually appraise
the difficulties and problems con
fronting the 'Nation and the North
west, has suddenly remembered that
its complexion is Democratic and
that a campaign Is under way. So
It proceeds to pan Dr. Hubert Work,
former Secretary of the Interior
and Hoover's campaign manager,
accusing him of hostility to the
Northwest because he, according to
the Oregon Journal, consistently
opposed the starting of new North-

Yards at Heppner, Lexington and lone
western Irrigation projects.
We have panned Dr. Work's In
dian Bureau for several years and
shall continue to pan It until it has
been completely reorganized, but
it seems to us that the usually sin
cere Journal in its Democratic zeal
has stooped pretty low when it
twists well known facts for the sake
of questioning political gain. The
Journal bases its attack on the as
sertion that Reclamation Service
projects in the Northwest "are rap
idly paying themselves out and have
proven their ability to provide
homes and a splendid living for
families on them." Therefore, ac
cording to the Journal, Dr. Work
through his opposition to more new
projects in the Northwest has dem
onstrated that he Ib a Republican
viper because he Is deliberately
blocking the progress of the North
west which has regularly voted Re
publican since the first wood-burning
locomotive came to Portland.
For messed-up reasoning this polit
ical editorial takes the leather-up
holstered wedding cake.
The facts are that a commission
of eminent engineers and econom
ists under leadership of Dr. Elwood
Mead, asked to take charge of the
Reclamation Service and pull ite
shaky projects out of the hole, rec
ommended the writing off of almost
thirty million dollars invested by
the nation In these projects. The
commission also recommended that
the payments due the nation from
the settlers be extended and that
these payments be varied from year
to year on the basis of average pro
duction and crop prices per acre. In
addition It recommended that no
new projects be Btarted until the
existing ones were completed and
until expert investigation had prov
en each proposed new project to be
really feasible, with a reasonable
chance of success for the settlers.
It also suggested that on these new
projects the State should undertake
by contract the colonization of the
land, the financing of the settlers
and their expert agricultural guidance.
The policy worked out by Dr.
Mead and recommended by the
commission is beginning to pull the
existing Reclamation Service pro
jects out of the hole. Several new
projects in the State of Oregon have
been approved, but Oregon has
shown no inclination to assume the
burden of seeking, financing and
guiding necessary settlers. Why?
Because the State of Oregon has on
its hand and on its treasury the
weight of several irrigation enter
prises on which the settlers made
such a "splendid living" districts
which "paid themselves out so rap
idly" with Irish dividends that the
State had to meet the overdue bond
The Oregon Journal, being an
ably edited paper, knows these con
ditions, but it just couldn't resist
the temptation to deliver a nasty
political below-the-belt blow. Which
is one reason why the general pub
lic declines to pay much attention
to the political editorials in any par
