Study the Proposed Measures
Since it is ddeeateJ to the people to vote di
rectly upon such legislation as may be placed on
the ballet by initiative petition or "referred to the
people by the leg-Vlative aTb!y" it is up to the
voers to perform their duty ith intelligence. It
can't be recalled that measures submitted by bal
lot have aluays becn acted upon by the elector
ate in the most intelligent manner but so long as
it is the law an effort should be made to deter
mine the right course to take.
The assistance of friends who are qualified
to interpret the laws is acceptable and could be
used to good advantage by most of us. It may re
quire a little time to get wised up on the several
measures but time spent in this pursuit is nothing
compared to the benefits gained or the possible
losses suffered through unintelligent voting.
In the current campaign there are several
measures which demand a good understanding in
order to vote correctly. Two school measures are
up for consideration. Some of our best minds are
advocating their passage and some of our best
minds are against their passage. Both sides are
capable of producing good argument and this
doesn't help the average voter who does not ap
ply himself to the task of thinking things out. The
final outcome is that many do not vote on the
measure or they vote blindly with the hope that
they may be doing the right thing.
It so happens that in the present campaign,
both candidates for the office of governor have
come out for the basic school bill. From their
standpoint that may be politically expedient.
Both will doubtless wield a certain amount of
prestige and cause a good many favorable votes
to be cast. Tie basic school bill advocates have
that much in their favor. On the other hand one
hears a good bit of argument that teachers, gen
erally, are more concerned with the immediate
boost in their salaries than with the general im
provement to our educational system. This view
point, we think, is a bit harsh, although it is to
be expected that people engaged in educational
work will seek advance in pay commensurate with
the advance in living costs, and in doing this
must follow to some extent the pressure tactics
characteristic of the labor unions.
To come to the point relative to the basil
school law bill, we are not completely sold on
its merits, not convinced that it is the answer
to the situation in Oregon. It may be the best ex
pedient and if this state is in danger of slipping
back educationally it may be the best way out. It
is certain that more lure has to be placed before
the young people to attract them into the teach
ing profession. That is the case at present, but
the situation may turn shortly and if present tea
cher salary scales are maintained the teachers
w ill not be outclassed by other salaried classes.
As to the so-called Little Townsend bill, there
is too much danger hidden under those soft words
about caring for our aged and infirm. The idea is
fantastic rather than practical. With some 140-
000 people above the age of 60 in this state, and
all of them taking advantage of the pension, it is
estimated that it will require more than $160,
000,000 to meet the annual bill. Look into this bill
carefully and don't be governed by sentimental
reasons unless you want to bankrupt the state.
While the demands for funds have not been so
insistent since the cessation of hostilities, there
still exists a great need for assistance to our sick
and injured veterans assistance that comes only
from individuals and organizations, for the gov
ernment is providing the essential care.
During the past year the Morrow county unit
of the Blue Mountain Camp and Hospital council
has continued to remember those boys who find
themselves wards of the govenment because they
sacrificed the right to live healthy, normal lives
that others might be guaranteed that privilege.
One of these lads, recipient of a gift from here
has written a "thank you" to Mrs. Ralph Thomp
son, whose fidelity and tireless devotion made
Morrow county outstanding in the Council.
Written at Walla Walla October 1, the letter

Dear ' Lady :
I wish to convey my most sincere thanks to
you and your organization for the beautiful and
useful gift you sent me for my birthday ... I am
an overseas veteran of the last war and was for
tuiate to get back without damage, but much to
mv surprise found that I was infected in both
lungs, so here I am in the Veterans hospital tak
ing the cure ... It certainly is nice and encour
aging to know that there are people who don'
forget us, once the war is over.
