Good Cleanup Won't Hurt
A little learning is deemed a dangerous thing
and the same may be applied to cleaning up the
towna little cleaning could be dangerous but a
real cleanup will remove that danger. That's why
a thorough cleanup of the town is being urged
remove dangérs from filth and spread of disease,
destroy pest and vermin beds, and not the least,
make yards, streets, alleys and vacant lots more
An accumulation of rubbish and a miscellaneous
assortment of castoff articles no longer used form
fire hazards as well as breeding grounds for ver
min. Removal of these hazards makes it more dif
ficult for rats and mice to multiply to say nothing
of the improvement in appearance it gives one's
There is no organized program for the cleanup
this year but it is hoped the property owners and ,
tenants will see fit to make the effort without be-,
ing solicited and urged by committees. A clean
town speaks -for itself. It shows the progressive
spirit of the people living within its boundaries, a
spirit that bids the stranger welcome and makes
him glad he called.
With two United States senators
in Oregon and one in Washingrton to.
elect this year the Pacific Northwest

and immediate confirmation by the
senate, creates another vacancy in
the senate and alters the political
complexion of the delegation from
the far northwest. Senator Bone has
been a crusader for public owner

his 'move to the federal circuit
court of appeals will have a marked
effect on the trend of the' public
ownership movement which the de
mocratic senator rates as one of
the major postwar essentials. ,

Smart Thing To Do
In withdrawing his name as a candidate for the
office of president of the United States, Wendell
Willkie is giving the lie to his opponents who have
claimed that he would go to any length to be elect
ed. He announced earlier th,at he would seek sup
port for his candidacy in some of the midwestern
states and base his decision to seek the nomination
on results obtained there. Those results were not
satisfactory, did not show a definite trend in his
direction, so he withdrew as a candidate, leaving
the field open to other aspirants, none of whom
have canvassed the country as thoroughly as he.
, Mr. Willkie may have run into a lot of Dewey
sentiment on his tours about the country. If senti
ment is expressed in other sections in line with
that heard in these parts,' other aspirants will be
confronted With more than a little talk in favor
of the New York governor., However, Willkie has
many supporters over the country who while dis
appointed that he will not make the race will hold
him in higher regard as one who holds principles
above political ambitions.
