A GOOD HOST.
THE Lexington community, though
small, has been doing a big thing
for the past two years in staging
its pioneer reunion, and this coming
Saturday will occur the third an
nual event, when the good people
of that little city will no doubt ex
ceed all former efforts in entertain
ing the pioneers of this county. Last
season, at the table prepared espe
cially for them, were seated about
75 of the pioneers whose ages ex
ceeded 70 years. A number of these
are still residents in the county,
while others came from a distance
to be present and enjoy the renew
ing of old-time friendships. Perhaps
there will be some missing from
this circle this year, but it is con
fidently expected that others who
could not attend last fall will be
there Saturday, and the number
seated at the "pioneers' table" will
be even larger than heretofore. Lex
ington has so well succeeded in past
years that there is no reason to feel
that all who gather there on Satur
day will not have the best time ever,
and the recurrence of the pioneer
reunion will now be looked forward
to as an event of each fall. Join
in with the Lexington folks on Sat
urday, take your well filled basket
for the big dinner that will be
spread, and then enjoy the fine pro
grams of the day that are in store
AN UNEXCITING PRIMARY
FOR once it appears that Oregon
will have a pretty unexciting pri
mary campaign next May for want
of serious opposition to the two
chief officials whose terms are about
to expire. All indications are that
Senator McNary will be renomina
ted either without opposition or
failing in that without serious op
position. His record in the senate
has strengthened his position even
over 1924 when he was an easy win
ner. His few blunders seem to have
been forgotten and he is "sitting
Governor Patterson has had his
ups and downs with the public fav
or but he is admittedly enjoying
the "ups" at this time. There is
general confidence in the way the
state's business is being run, and
little unfavorable criticism. There
are plenty of people who are not
friendly to the present executive but
they would have a hard time agree
ing on one candidate and if they
did it would be a forlorn hope at
the best Senator Bennett of Port
land will be a candidate and will
get quite a few votes but will have
no chance to win. Only some sur
prising change in the setup not now
to be anticipated could change the
existing state of affairs.
Congressman Butler may have a
hard time staying in if former Sen
ator Stanfleld is his opponent Oth
erwise he is likely to be renomina
ted without much difficulty. Most
of the state offices were filled last
year. There is no president to elect,
so Oregon seems to be in for an un
usually quiet primary campaign un
less the democrats spill some trick
plays on each other.

human kind. But when these lead

Mark 12: 13-17; Romans 13:1-14; I Peter
Rev. Samuel D. Price, D.D.
World's Temperance Sunday is
the Sunday Just before Election
Day and was fixed at that time In
order that further Information on
this moral issue might have an ef
fect in casting votes. All reforms
come after a long process of teach
ing. The world became free from
slavery by just such a process. The
topics that are followed during the
quarter show how practical is the
Bible. Religion, to be effective,
must deal with the everyday affairs
in which we live.
The setting for the selection from
Mark la a thrilling one, and just
the kind that a novelist can make
much of. Jesus was teaching In
Jerusalem and His work was almost
over. He was probably the most
hated man In the community. Itany
also hated each other, but their
feeling against Jesus was so great
that they forgot their differences In
order to make common cause
against Him. Thus the Pharisees
and Herodians- pooled their inter
ests in trying to entrap the Teacher
with catch questions. The one which
they thought would "get" him was
about paying tribute to the Roman
government The answer was by
means of an Illustration as He ask
ed for a denarius. All eyes were
ling block to progress.
One of the most glaring examples
of false economy is the "close-fisted"
policy often times practiced in car
ing for one's health. This in view
of the fact that ill health is the
greatest obstacle to prosperity.
Where is there a thinking man
who will give over a moment to
calm introspection who will not find
that a majority of his business re
verses have been due to ill health?
How often has one heard the re
mark, "that wouldn't have happen
ed if I had been at myself"? An
accounting of such reverses, just
one of innumerable tolls taken, does
not have to progress far to present
an astounding figure representing a
dead loss due to ill health. Add to
this the cost of treatment for sick
ness, death's premature toll, loss of
time from productive occupation,
and the loss soon mounts into in
Combatting this drain on prosper
ity should be the ceaseless concern
of everybody, and especially should
it be foremost in the thoughts of
those directly controlling the reins
of government Thus does the ac
quisition of a county health nurse
present itself logically as one of the
prime moves of local government;
a step which has proved successful
and profitable to at least 20 Oregon
counties, and one which may well
be taken by Morrow county.
A deep study of the problem is
not required for one to recognize
that the place to start the cam
paign to overcome ill health is
among infants and children. Early
correction of such physical defects
as poor eyesight bad teeth and ton
sils, adenoids, curvature .of the
spine, and countless other child
maladies, means enhancing the
child's ability to take advantage of
life's opportunities and a resultant
profit from his increased produc
tiveness, besides averting inevitable
sickness that would result if such
defects were not corrected. A real
moral obligation and debt to poster
ity presents itself in the issue.
The place of the county health
nurse in carrying on this work is
shown in the following, who she is
and what she does;
The public health nurse Is a spe
cially trained person.
First hospital trained and grad
uated. A registered nurse.
Usually with several years of gen
eral experience taking care of sick
ness. Then back to school to be taught
how to take care of health.
So she is a HEALTH nurse.
Her function is to guard every
body s health.
Not to stay for days at a time
with one family.
Never to be regarded as a charity
But everybody's health nurse.
She will consult and cooperate
with physicians and parents in the
supervision and health care of
school children, and in the elimina
tion of epidemics.
She will be ready to give health
talks in schools and before clubs
and other groups.
She will meet with community
groups to help them work out their
local health problems.
She will visit expectant mothers
and baby cases at the request of
physician or patient
She will visit in any home having
sickness, and do enough bedside
nursing to teach some member of
the family to give nursing care that
they may have been unfamiliar
with, and will revisit such homes
She will visit at intervals and give
nursing care to chronic invalids.
She will assist in securing insti
tutional care for crippled, deaf or
blind children, or tuberculosis cases.
and others needing institutional
She will visit tuberculosis cases
and assist the physician and the
family In keeping up the necessary
treatment of the patient and the
important precautionary measures,
and will try to find all unreported
tuberculosis cases and secure med
ical care for them.
"If we could have a community
with every member well and happy
and energetic, what a tremendous
boost it would give to prosperity.
Such a degree of health may well
be our ultimate goal, and It is al
ways the goal toward which a pub
lic health nurse conducts herself,'

on Him and the coin as He held
it up and inquired "Whose image?
the reply turned the laugh on the
hecklers: "Render unto Caesar the
things that are Caesar's, and unto
God the things that are God's."
The Bible stands for the full rec
ognition of the authority of the
government Since constant benefits
come from Caesar it is in order to
pay their share of the tax which
makes these advantages possible,
Paul and Peter give the same prin
ciples in their writings. Paul's life
was saved when he declared,
appeal unto Caesar." No govern
ment can be maintained when the
citizens do as they please about
obeying the laws of that land, or
decide which ones they will accept
Crime is a serious cost to tax
payers. Even slight study will re
veal that those who "render unto
God the things that are God's" are
the least expense to the state. Law
breakers are the most expensive cit
izens. Some day the community as
a whole will refuse to pay the
charges of those who deliberately
break the law. Law does not make
lawlessness, it merely reveals it
The chemist labels alcohol as a
poison. The public knows it as a
producer of crime. It is very costly
in dollars, morals and life Itself.
The best way of reaching the solu
tion, aside from maintaining and
enforcing the existing laws, is to be
more active In the teaching process
that the growing youth in every
generation may learn the facts ear
ly and let alcohol alone, as they
would avoid any other poison.
