An Important Decision
There is something far more important than
personalities in the current race for Governor of
Oregon. Under conditions as existed a generation
or so ago it would be a matter of deciding which
man the voter liked best. Today it is vastly dif
ferent. The voters must decide between preserving
our American way of life as pertains to private
enterprise and the continuing trend towards stat
ism. or socialism, to be more direct
Mr. McKay's record as a legislator and as a
governor leave no doubt in the minds of the
people as to which side he represents. Mr. Flegel,
who as a legislator sponsored and stood for meas
ures that proved embarrassing as a candidate
for governor, finds it easier to get along with the
government ownership of power boys and other
crackpot elements of the Democratic party by the
simple expedient of reversing his former stand
and beliefs. In order to capture votes he has come
all-out for the National Administration program
of deficit spending, for government ownership of
power in fact, the whole socialist program which,
whether or not planned with that purpose in view,
is surely and definitely swinging the nation to
wards a state of complete regimentation.
Election of Flegel will be one big step towards
realization of the Columbia Valley Authority and
the eventual taking over of all public utility ser
vices by the central government. All that is need
ed is to get a socialistic state regime, which na
turally would follow election of a so-called demo,
crat to the governor's chair and the stage would
be set for carrying out the ambitions of the gov
ernment ownership planners.
There is no cause for a change of administra
tion in Oregon this year or any year so long as
we have capable leadership such as Mr. McKay
is ffivinff us. His oav-as-we-go policy is iust plain
good horse sense. It is not to the liking of the
deficit spending boys but if we guess the temper
of the people of Oregon correctly they will not
want to change sensible government for the type
of management we are bound to nave u mi. r ie
gel should get into office.

America is waking up!
It took the Korean war to make
us realize that as a world power
we are at present woefully weak ;
militarily; tnai Kussia is Dent
upon world conquest, thus pre
senting a real and direct threat
to the United States, and that we
must arm and prepare ourselves
to an extent unparalleled in the
history of the world.
It is only natural tnat we
should seek someone in high of
ficial position upon which to
heap the blame for the fact that
in five short years we have tum
bled from the very pinnacle of
military power to our present pit
ifully ineffective status. Yet, let
us look with honesty into our
own souls for the part we played
in bringing about such a condi
Upon defeat of Japan our fore
most demand was: ''Bring the
boys home." Our military leaders
gave us plenty of warning again,
st too drastic curtailment of our
military strength, but they were
silenced by political Washington,
yielding to public demand. Witn-
out men in uniform, it became
necessary to scrap, scuttle and
abandon billions of dollars worth
of military equipment.
Furthermore, we developed a
certain desperate hope that dip
lomatic Washington would be
able to cope with the problem of
an expanding Russia. Now it ap.
pears that most of us went into
hiding behind the flimsy ram
parts of pseudo isolationism.
Smaller nations of Europe and
Asia, prompted by fear to be
more realistically aware of Rus
sia's designs for world conquest,
also raised their voices in warn
ing. We brushed them off as
alarmists. Official Washington
in dealing with Russian agents
within our borders, merely shrug
ged an indifferent shoulder.
But at last we are becoming
aware of the Soviet master plan
for world domination, and that
all her military and civilian ef
forts are keyed toward the ulti
mate conquest of America the
only remaining world power
standing in the way o her ne
farious ambitions.
As a freedom -loving and peace.
loving, people there are two
things we want to escape bond
age and war. These are two traits
so deeply imbedded in most of us
that they may rightfully be re
ferred to as national character
istics. Can they be preserved? If
so, now 7
The achievement of worthy na
tional goals carries a high price
or individual and collective sac
nfices. We are beginning to rea
ize that the comparatively small
sacrifices we made during the
two previous world wars may
have been only preliminaries to
the much greater we have to
make in the future.
In order to preserve freedom,
and at the same time insure
peace, we must build a greater
military machine than the world
has ever dreamed of, and at the
same time keep our national eco
nomy intact. Toward that end
ecah of us must be prepared to
sacrifice as never before, and
government expenditures, domes,
tic and foreign, must be pared to
the bone.
Yes, we CAN retain our free
dom and liberty. We CAN avoid
another world war. We are the
only nation that potentially CAN
guarantee world peace. Are we
willing to make the sacrifices
such as commitments entail, and
to make them NOW, while it is
still time?
Give America a goal big en
ough, a Problem tough enough,
and we will rise as one to meet
them. We will also do it because
we are gifted with an acumen for
urmng a profit knowing that
the sacrifices we make now, no
matter how severe, in building a
mignty military machine that
will keep Russia at bay, will be
lniiniteiy less severe than If we
risked having our cities destrop
ed, our land overrun by tyrants
and our lives enslaved.
The eternal values of the Am
erican civilization and the Am
erican tradition of human. lib
erty are at stake. They are big
stakes, but, AMERICA IS WAK
