Mossbackism is something that is supposed to
have disappeared along with the horse and buggy
days, but Friday's election results leave one in
doubt. Especially is this true with regards to, the
proposed civic center in Portland. Just when up
staters were preparing to congratulate our first
city on its civic smartness and progress, the moss
backs rally their strength and knock the proposal
into a cocked hat.
If California and Washington enjoy .a greater
measure of prosperity than Oregon it is because
they are alert to their opportunities. They have
displayed a spirit of progress not matched bv their
relatively sleepy neighbor sandwiched in between
them. Yet this state has many opportunities for
the homeseeker and investor not exceeded by ei
ther of its neighbors if our people were only more
alive to these possibilities.
Upstaters would like to think that when they
go to the metropolis they can see as much for
their money as the people of neighboring states do
when they visit their larger cities. In natural,
beautiful surroundings, Portland can hold her
head high among the cities of the coast, but dis
tinguishing civic features are less apparent than
in some of the other large centers. Realizing this
handicap, the city's more forward looking citizens
proposed a civic center which the crowd with the
most votes and the poorer vision rejected. The
progressives may be able to revive the proposal
in future elections and eventually win out. If
sentiment could be counted as voting strength the
upstate support would have made the civic center
a reality in the June 22 election.
Victory Not Yet Won
Where would we be if our armed forces were
to set a certain date for the war to be won and
then fail to force the enemy into submission by
that time? Our future status would be more in
doubt than it was that memorable day when the
Japs made their sneak raid on Pearl Harbor,
would it not?
That may not be a fair comparison with the
present war bond campaign, yet it has a relation
ship that can't be overlooked. Our war machine
is engrossed in sending: the advocates of a new As
iatic order to meet their ancestors and is depend
ent upon the support from home to complete the
job. We are nearing the end of a campaign to raise
fourteen billion dollars with which to carry on the
war several months ahead. Reports indicate that
bond buying will have to be greatly accelerated
the next few days in order to put the drive over.
Supposing the armed forces should say, "Sub
scribe that fourteen billion dollars by June 30 or
we will lay down our arms." Would we be pikers
If the cigarette tax had become a law it would
