HEDGING ON SALARY CtJTS.
Baker Democrat Herald
THE 5 to 50 per cent slash In state
salaries is dead, at the instance
of the governor -who favors a flat
reduction of 15 or 16 per cent. The
leaders at Salem took a sober sec
ond thought and decided that their
original idea was too drastic.
But if such a cut is too drastic
for jobholders in the statehouse
what about professors at Eugene,
Corvallis and the normal schools?
They have already taken one cut
of six to 15 per cent and are now
taking another of nine to 27 per
cent, with further slashes in the
offing if the legislature follows its
announced purpose of further re
ducing the appropriation by more
than half a million more. In addi
tion to the salary reductions many
are to be layed off altogether.
The question is: Why should the
educational end of state government
do twice as much economizing as
the other departments, especially
when its increase during boom per
iods was less than their's?

What is going on now, as a result
of the widespread distress and mul
tiplication tn the number of debtors,
may easily amount to another ser
ies of radical changes in our entire
governmental scheme. The people
are in the mood for change. The
resistance of the creditor class to
the demands of debtors for relief
is weaker than it has been at any
previous time. The debtor class to
day includes not only farmers but
industrial workers, business men
and great corporations.
In the light of this state of affairs
it is natural to expect that Congress
will respond by carrying the new
concepts of the functions of govern
ment into fields of which the found
era of the Republic never dreamed.
If they do, it will, in essence,
amount to a revolution; but it will
merely be another revolution, Amer

A COUPLE of weeks ago a Sen
ate committee in Washington
was warned that there would be a
revolution in America if the farm
ers did not get immediate relief
from their difficulties.
We don't agree with this point of
view. All the indications are that
the revolution in America has al
ready begun and that it will go on
regardless of the question of farm
Of course, what the gentleman in
Washington was talking about was
the kind of revolution we read
about, in Russian and Spain and
South America, where an armed
force seizes the government and
proceeds to reorganize it at the
point of a bayonet. We don't think
there is the slightest danger of that
kind of a revolution in the United
What we are talking about is
revolution in the American style,
which consists of changing the
methods and operations of our gov
ernment by what the Constitution
calls "due process of law. We have
been going through revolution after
revolution of that kind ever since
the armed revolution of 1776, which
won us our national independence.

government is as different from
anything which was imagined by

The Growth of the Kingdom.
Lesson for February 19th.
Golden Text: Isaiah 11:9.
Our lesson deals with the spread
of Christianity, an expansion that
Jesus described in terms of the
Kingdom of God. This divine Realm
is future, and is to come by direct
miraculous action of God. But the
forces promoting it, as the lesson
makes clear, are even now present.
This truth the Master makes evi
dent in two gracious little parables.
The first is the parable of the seed
that is cast into the ground and
mysteriously springs up by Itself
into lovely grain. The sower does
not need to worry after the seed is
cast. He can relax with an easy
mind knowing that nature will act
of her own accord. But when the
corn is ripe, he must act.
Now you and I can wait when
we have sown our seed. We can
allow the influences we have set
in motion to slowly fructify. We
can trust in God to finish what we
have begun. But when the harvest
in due time appears, then we must
The second is the parable of the
tiny mustard seed that becomes a
powerful tree, shooting out great
branches as a restful, shady lodg-ing-plaoe
for the birds. What Je
sus means, of course, Is that you
cannot judge the success of God's
Kingdom by its humble start The
Cause of God, though Inconspicu
ous at first, is enduring. It has the
latent capacity of the mustard seed
to become a mighty tree, steadfast,
hospitable, solid, a continuing joy.
This homely parable Is a symbol
of the amazing growth of the Chris
tion movement. Launched by an
obscure Galalean who was cruelly
crucified, it quickly expanded Into
a world-wide society, to which both
Rome and the barbarians who con
quered her paid deference. And at
the present time it is estimated that
the disciples of Christ now equal,
if they do not exceed, a third of the
Supplying a week-to-week Inspiration

periences of "The Man Nobody Knows"
All Men Created Equal
What was there for Jesus to add?
It was a thought more splendid
than all which had gone before and
it has altered the current of his
tory. He invited frail bewildered
humanity to stand upright and look
at God face to face! He called up
on men to throw away fear, disre
gard the limitations of their mor
tality, and claim the Lord of Cre
ation as Father. It is the basis of
all revolt, all emocracy. For if
God is the Father of all men, then
all are his children and hence the
commonest i3 equally as precious
as the king. No wonder the auth
orities trembled. They were not
fools; they recognized the implica
tions of the teaching. Either Jesus'
life or their power must go. No
wonder that succeeding generations
of authorities have embroidered
his Idea and corrupted It, so that
the simplest faith and ritual in the
world has become a complex thing
of form and ritual, of enforced ob
servances and "thou shall nots." It
was too dangerous a Power to be
allowed to wander the world, un
leashed and uncontrolled.
This then was what Jesus wished
to send to all creation; through the
instrumentality of his eleven men.
What were his methods of train
ing? How did he meet the prospec
tive believers? How did he deal
with objections? By what sort of
strategy did he interest and per
He was making the journey back
from Jerusalem after his spectac
ular triumph in cleansing the Tern
pie, when he came to Jacob's Well,
and being tired, sat down. His dis
ciples had stopped behind at one of
the villages to purchase food, so he
was alone. The well furnished the
water-supply for the neighboring
city of the Samaritans, and after
little while a woman came out of
it, carrying her pitcher on her
shoulder. Between her people, the
Samaritans, and his people, the
Jews, there was a feud of centuries.
To be touched by even the shadow
of a Samaritan was defilement ac
cording to the strict code of the
Pharisees; to speak to one was a
crime. The woman made no con
cealment of her resentment at find
ing him there. Almost any remark
from his lips would have kindled
her anger. She would at least have
turned away in scorn; she might
have summoned her relatives and
driven him off.
An impossible situation, you will
admit. How could he meet It?
How give his message to one who
was forbidden by everything holy
to listen? The incident is very re
vealing: there are times when any
word is the wrong word; when only
silence can prevail. Jesus knew
well this precious secret As the
woman drew closer he made no
move to indicate that he was con
scious of her approach. His gaze
was upon the ground. When he
spoke it was quietly, musingly, as
if to himself:
"If you knew who T am," he said,
"you would not need to come out
here for water. I would give you

Adolf Hitler, leader of the "Nazi"
movement in Germany, has become
Chancellor of the German Republic
and head of the Government This
makes the third European nation to
come under the control of a virtual
dictator. Stalin in Russia, Mussj
lini in Italy and now Hitler in Ger
many are manifestations of the fail
ure of the peoples of those countries
to manage their own affairs suc
cessfully. I hear a great deal of loose talk
to the effect that "what America
needs is a dictator." I don't think
we need anything of the kind, and
don't think that the vast majority
of Americans want to be organized,
disciplined and controlled in the
way that people living under a dic
tator have to submit to.
We have never failed yet in Amer
ica to work our own way out of
our troubles, and I think we are on
the way out now.
Socialism . are we headed?
We are much more likely in
America to come to some mild form
of socialism than we are to arrive
at either communism or a dictator
ship. But we are not likely to call
it socialism any more than England
calls her present systetm of gov
ernment socialistic which it prac
All the signs of the time are point
ing to increasing government con
trol, if not ownership and operation
of public utilities, natural resources,
means of transportation and com
munication. It would not surprise
me, if I were here to see it, to find
the United States twenty years from
now owning all of the mines, oil
wells, railroad, telegraph and tele
phone lines, radio broadcasting
systems, electric light and power
plants, steamship lines, and other
enterprises which are essentially
monopolistic in their nature.
And. incidentally, if any more
people stop paying taxes, it won't
be long before the nation or its
governmental sub-divisions own all
Cooperation . in a new way
A group of sixty-three unemploy
ed New York business men are op
ening up a cooperative store with
the aid of manufacturers and job
bers of merchandise of all kinds.
They are getting their rent on a
percentage basis of sales, and their
merchandise on consignment.
This is only one of hundreds, per
haps thousands, of cooperative ef
forts at self help which are being
made in all parts of the United
States. Some will succeed and some
will not, but out of them may grow
some valuable lessons which can
be applied when good times come
again, and which will make It eas
ier, because of this experience, to
meet the next economic crisis.
I heard from an English friend
the other day that the members of
the great British cooperative so
ciety are getting through the de
pression much easier than the gen
eral run of the people.
The hardest thing for most Amer
icans to learn is teamwork.
Treasure . . hidden away
If all the money that has ever
been buried and Its whereabouts
forgotten could be dug up and put
into circulation, there might be
enough to ease the depression ma
I learned the other day from a
Russian friend that he knew the
exact spot where ten million dol
lars was buried just before the Bol
shevik army arrived, and if there
were any possible way of getting
the money out of Russia he could
lead me to the spot I declined the
offer, but I was reminded of it
when I heard from down on the
Eastern shores of Maryland that
a young man who had bought an
abandoned graveyard as a Site for
a filling station had found an iron
pot containing thirty thousand dol
lars in old coins buried in the
ground. And from out in Arkan
sis comes the report that workers
for the American Red Cross have
turned up nearly six thousand dol
lars that was hidden by an ancient
hermit who committed suicide a
few weeks ago, after writing in
structions to Red Cross workers
how to find his buried treasure.
Adventurers are still searching
for pirate gold on various islands of
the West Indies, and dredging the
deep seas for sunken treasure ships.
It is the most fascinating game
imaginable, but those who play it
Security . old age pension
My friends of the American As-
sioiation for Old Age Security re
port that efforts are being made by
politicians in several states to
abolish their old age pension sys
tems, on the plea of economy, and
go back to the horrors of the town
and county poor houses. It seems
to me that this is about the last
place to practice economy. Of
course, the poorhouses made jobs
for politicians and profits for local
tradesmen supplying bad food at
high prices. The experience has
always been that almshouse support
of the indigent poor costs twice as
much as providing the small pen
sion of five or six dollars a week to
every person of advanced years.
Twenty Legislatures have old age
pension bills up for consideration
now. I hope and believe that the
time will come soon when every
American can look forward to have
at least enough to live on after
reaohing the age of sixty-five or

some competitors are that way.
