Forest economists estimate that
Oregon forests can be placed on a
sustained yield basis and furnish
employment for 80,000 people with
a manufactured wealth of at least
one and one half times that of the
Water power is potentially one
of the greatest if not the greatest
for any state in the Union. This
water power depends upon the
care of the water sheds. They will
have to be kept in forest cover.
Recreation is another great re
source depending for its life on the
forests. It is estimated that three
million people visited the national
forests of Washington and Oregon
the past season. I believe the tour
ist crop netted Oregon something
like 20 million dollars last year.
Hunting and fishing depend
largely on the care of the forest
cover. No timber, means no water
and no game.
The grazing resources of the
state depend on the cooler forests
for their summer pasturage.
Approximately seven million dol
lars are spent In Oregon and Wash
ington for the Improvement of the
national forests and their adminis
tration. Thirty-five percent of all national
forest receipts are returned to the
counties of the state for road and
school purposes, each county re

In Mexico, every week one hour
is devoted to teaching of temper
ance in the schools. The hour is
called the "anti-alcohol hour." The
method was initiated by the min
istry of industry, commerce and
labor. Evidently, the economic as
pects of the campaign are largely
the determining factors. Health,
morality and sobriety favor the pro
ductiveness of any people.
Dr. W. A. Evans, prominent Chi
cago physician who conducts a
health column in the Chicago Trib
une, in answering an inquiry, said
there is possibly some connection
between eating sugar and the de
sire for alcohol, but "just what it
is no one knows." He went on to
"Men drink alcoholic beverages
because of desire and not because
of thirst. The urge is emotional
rather than physical. They are
somewhat out of mental balance.
People drink to fool themselves
that they may think they are kings
when they are slaves, rich when
they are poor, powerful when they
are weak, jolly when they are
downcast If you and your hus
band hav no desire for liquor It is
because you have mental balance,
are not given to wishful thinking,
have emotional poise, do not let
your feelings dethrone your judg
ment, have had proper training,
have character, and have had fa
vorable social environment; and it
is not because of the food you eat
or the water you drink."
Notwithstanding all the clamor
to "smash prohibition state by
state," forty-four state legislatures
which adjourned early In 1931 did
not repeal a line of prohibition en
forcement. These legislatures were
composed of approximately 8000
members, elected in 1930, when the
wet campaign was at its height in
which the wets sought to repeal or
modify prohibition. The wets in
troduced 200 wet bills in 32 states,
but in 12 states they could not find
a single member who would Intro
duce such a bill. The only wet
measures passed were in the form
of vague memorials to congress.
These came from seven of the 44
states in which legislatures were in
session, and were- mere gestures.
They accomplished nothing. In
seventeen states bills introduced -to
repeal prohibition laws were de
feated or killed In every instance.
This does not seem to bear out the
oft reiterated claim of the wets that
the majority of the people are fa
vorable to repeal or modification
(nullification). The legislatures
