"My declaration of candidacy has
been mailed to the Secretary of
State. In it I have summarized the
planks of my platform. Necessar
ily a complete presentation could
not be made within the limitations
of the 100 word statement I ac
cordingly submit to the voters this
additional statement of the princi
ples for which I stand.
"The first duty of government is
restoration of confidence and sta
bility in business, industry and ag
riculture. Conditions cannot be
normal in Oregon until agriculture,
livestock and the lumber industry
are placed on a profitable basis. I
have -stood aggressively, and will
continue to stand, for justice to
these industries. I am working for
improved credit facilities. When
the pending revenue bill reaches
the senate I will continue my ef
forts for an increased tariff on lum
ber and will seek to repeal the pro
viso by which rough lumber enters
the United States duty free. I de
mand that the Agriculture Mar
keting Act produce results. If it
does not, I shall vote for its repeal.
In any event, I favor amendments
strengthening prices, either by de
benture or some plan equivalent to
the equalization fee.
"I have supported and will con
tinue to support Federal legislation
authorizing public works to pro
vide employment for idle men. I
have advocated further appropria
tions for Federal projects. I voted
for the LaFollette-Costigan bill to
provide Federal aid to those in
want and Federal construction of
highways to relieve unemployment.
I favor a balanced budget, but I
cannot conclude Government fin
ancing justifies starvation.
"I advocate immediate Federal
development of hydro-electric pow
er on the Columbia River. I voted
for Boulder Dam and the Norris
Resolution for Government opera
tion at Muscle Shoals. As one of
the organizers, years ago, of the
Umatilla Rapids Association, the
pioneer body promoting develop
ment on the Columbia, I am not a
new convert to this cause. As Sen
ator I have constantly urged Co
lumbia River development both for
power and navigation.
"I favor construction by the Fed-
era Government of trunk lint to
the markets or a provision giving
the Government an option to build
these lines or to contract with mu
nicipalities or private industries for
their construction. Such authority
will effectually insure against mon
opoly, and will enable power dis
tricts to acquire energy under con
ditions beneficial to the people.
Prohibition and Law Enforcement.

and will not deny them the right to
vote on this question. There is no
other principle so fundamental to

"Be not overcome of evil; but
overcome evil with good." Rom.
12:21. To return good for evil is
the plain meaning of the text "If
thine enemy hunger," Paul says in
the preceding verse, "feed him; if
he thirst, give him drink; for in so
doing thou shalt heap coals of fire
on his head.
Sounds good, someone says, but
it will not work. Wait just a mo
ment. Have YOU tried it? Then
just suppose YOU do. The very
next time anybody treats you un
kindly, suppose YOU turn right
around and do that somebody a
kindness and see what comes of it.
It is not in human nature to act
that way, you say. No, but there
is a better way than that dictated
by human nature. The human way
is, "an eye for an eye; and a tooth
for a tooth." But this human way
has worked out very badly, as
many of us have found from per
sonal experience; and as we have
seen from the general experience of
mankind. The better way is God's
way to return good for evil. And
since the human way has failed so
utterly, we ought at least give God's
way a fair trial, even if it does not
seem feasible, to us, or in accord
with human nature.
Never mind about others. Even
if we do not see anybody else try
ing this way, let us try it, fairly
and honestly. The next time any
body speaks evil of you, speak well
of them. The next time you are
hurt or wronged by someone, go
right in the face of that wrong and
do that person a good turn. "And
in so doing thou shalt heap coals
of fire on his head." Then wait and
see what happens. Watch the burn
ing and thawing effect of those
one, What are you going to do
with Jesus?" When you find out
who He is, when you discover Him,
you will have the solution to many,
nay, all of the questions and prob
lems that trouble you. Great is
the mystery of Godliness and minds
have sought for a definition of that
word and grappled with its mys
tery. The Holy Spirit has revealed
coals of fire. First, the person who
wronged you will be shamed. Your
kindness will be like coals of fire
in his conscience, if he has any
conscience at all. And then, unless
he has a heart of stone, the thaw
ing will begin. His heart will be
melted and warmed by your kind
ness, and he will turn to you and
seek your pardon and make am
ends as far as he can. Do not de
bate this matter just try it! Be
sure you are trying it In the spirit
of real Christianity; any other way
will fail flatly.
May we invite you, if you have
not now a church home, to come
here and worship with us. Come
and enjoy our Bible school and
the services of reverent worship.
You will help and be helped if you

CORN OR TUBERS

Comparative Prospects Discussed
For Oregon Farmers by
Potatoes or corn. That is the al
ternative confronting many farm
ers just now as they prepare land
for spring sown cultivated crops in
Oregon, says E. R. Jackman, ex
tension crop specialist at Oregon
Latest outlook reports on proba
ble acreage of these crops this year
show that in Oregon the acreage of
late potatoes is likely to be about
the same or a little less than last
year. Keports on intentions 10

whole show about the same to a
little more acreage. Of course pro

On the other hand there is pros
pect of 15 to 17 per cent increase
in corn acreage in Oregon, but even
this will not come anywhere near
supplying the grain corn needs of
the state, according to outlook esti
mates. Corn prices are therefore ex
pected to be, "as usual, the price
elsewhere plus transportation to
"I see no incentive for a man to
jump from another crop to pota
toes this year, despite the old adage
to make money by planting cheap
seed," says Jackman. "On the oth
er hand there would be little ad
vantage even at present prices for
the farmer equipped to raise his
normal acreage of potatoes to
abandon that enterprise. The in-and-outer
is almost certain to be
'out' in the long run."
But for the man planning as be
tween potatoes or corn for a culti
vated cash crop, Jackman is all in
favor of corn this year. Acclimat
ed varieties will make good grain
crops in the Willamette valley,
southern Oregon, Malheur county
and in some sections of other coun
ties east of the Cascade mountains.
Corn costs as much to raise per
acre as other grains, but does not
require nearly as much cash out
lay, says Jackman. A ready mar
ket is practically assured right
here in Oregon where the amount
of corn raised and sold for grain
has totaled around 200 cars as
against about 1000 cars shipped in
In the Willamette valley corn
will yield more pounds per acre
than small grains, and in some sec
tions of the state regular "corn

Grant District Attoney
Given Yale Fellowship
University of Oregon, Eugene
April 6. A Sterling Fellowship in
law at Yale university, carrying a
stipend of $1400, for the school year
1932-1933, has just been awarded
to Edwin D. Hicks, graduate of the
University of Oregon law school in
1929, and at present district attor
ney for Grant county.
The fellowship, one of seven
awarded annually at Yale, is re
garded not only as a marked recog
nition for Hicks, but for the Uni
versity of Oregon law school as
well, according to Dean Wayne L.
Morse. Further recognition of the
law school here is seen in the fact
that Roy Herndon of Freewater,
senior in law, was chosen as alter
nate, and will receive a fellowship
should any of the seven be unable
Hicks made a remarkable record
during his college career, graduat
ing and passing the bar examina
tion just before he came of age.
That fall he ran for district attor
ney of Grant county, and although
he had not been able to enter the
primaries, enough voters wrote his
name in so that in running as a
democrat he defeated the incum
bent. When he took offce he was
the youngest district attorney in
the United States, and it is believed
that he still hold3 this honor.
Hicks will leave for Yale this fall.
He expects to return to Oregon fol
lowing the completion of his stud
ies and will resume the practice of
