Rufus Holman -
QEVERAL days ago an upstate grange asked Rufus Holman
to cither resign as state treasurer, or as candidate for gov
ernor. It uid not like the idea
two offices at the same time.
Yesterday the' redoubtable
which took the form of an emphatic "no!"
Not only will Rufus refuse to resign one office until he is
elected to the other, but following his coronation as governor
he will appoint his own successor as state treasurer, for only
thus can the Holman principles "of progressive government,
which have been so long delayed,
"Any other action," observes the great Apostle of political
righteousness "would be playing right into the hands of the
power trust, other selfish interests and my political enemies,
and thereby would tend to defeat the entire purpose of my

THERE, ladies and gentlemen, you HAVE Mr. Rufus Holman !
Anrl Via man anrnnllv TtFTTKVF.S it f
OTHERS may have their doubts of the greatness and jndis
pensibility of Rufus Holman, but NOT Rufus Holmdn.
The present State Treasurer is CONVINCED that if he
should resign and take his chances on getting another job, as
governor, (as an ordinary human being might do) the state of
Oregon would go into a fatal tailspin AT ONCE. If he could
have his way he would not only hold two state offices at once,
he would hold ALIi of them for he is convinced he is not only
the most able and honest man
the ONLY one. ,

Rufus take the time to pay his predecessor a passing tribute,

OF HIMSELF, and how fortunate the state was to have a man,
as honest and efficient and progressive as he, to handle its
RUFUS HOLMAN,- if psycho, analyzed, would probably be
classified as an Egocentrio Introvert. He suffers from
delusions of persecution and delusions of grandeur. No one can
convince him the Power Trust is not constantly on the warpath
to do him in; no one can convince him, that if he should fail to
win whatever political race he may enter, that all the forces of
righteousness and fair dealing, would NOT go down with him.
Such supreme self confidence, such collosal egotism is con
tagious. A man who believes so thoroughly and exclusively
in himself, can't fail but impress others particularly those who
are not politically sophisticated, and who ARE IMPRESSION
ABLE. And that in the last analysis is the secret of Rufus
Holman's strength.
What Should Be Done?
THE conviction that recovery is being held back is the basis
of the outcry against the "brain trust", and the reason why,
in spite of the collapse of Dr. Wirt 'a charges, the "brain trust"
is increasingly unpopular. It is also the cause of the inflationist
Sentiment in congress. That sentiment expresses the view that
the depression is due primarily to a derangement of money,
which has destroyed prices and profits, and not, as AAA and
NRA imply, to a lack of "planning" and control in the economic
structure. ; . .
The administration has been acting on both theories. It has
a monetary policy which tends to raise general prices, to restore
profits, and to stimulate enterprise. It has a policy of regimen
tation, which raises prices here and there but in no intelligent
relation to other prices, which obstructs profits and discourages
entorpriso. The two policies are now grinding one against the
THIS conflict has to be solved. J.I is the main business before
the country, before congress, and before the administration.
There are three possible ways in which it can be resolved. Tho
regimentation could be redoubled and reinforced and the at
tempt made to run agriculture and industry under government
control. This is the direction indicated by the Bankhead cotton
bill. To take this road is, however, impossible. Congress would
not permit it. The country would not tolerate it. Tho admin
istration does not desire it. The second way is the one that
congress is threatening to use. It consist in imposing upon
tho banking system an inflation of sufficient power to overcome
tho inertia of all the restrictive measures. This is a dangerous
and disorderly way to reach a sound objective. The third way
is for tho administration itself to release enterprise by abandon
ing some of tho measures that constrict it and by revising
others. This is the way of common sense. 1
FOR the monetary policy as now set up, supplemented as occa
sion demands by the use of the powers the president already
possesses, is a most powerful engine for recovery if only it is
permitted to operate. It can creato immense supplies of new
money provided channels are opened through which new money
can flow into industry. It would be the height of folly not to
use it when, by using it intelligently, as the British are doing
with a similar monetary engine, it is almost certainly possible
to bring back to tho people work, security, and peaco of mind.
To do this is in no sense to abandon the hopes of tho "new
deal." For, as tho president himself has frequently said, all the
particular devices of tho past year are purely experimental and
should bo modified when they do not work. Experience has now
shown that some of them thwart enterprise and retard recovery.
Thoso devices ought without the slightest compunction to be
revised so that they will not thwart enterprise and retard recov

One of the twists of the times is
the enormous increase in bicycling
parties on Saturday and Sunday, This
too, is the time of year when tho
private mansions on the upper East
Side are boarded. The only show of
life was the plpe-pufflng Janitor in
an area way at sundown.
Scarcely a dozen of these homes
are eo shuttered this summer. A real
estate expert discovers that six years
ago only 18 per cent of the occu
pants of apartment houses on Park
and upper Fifth avenue remained In
town during the hot months. This
summer 80 per cent will remain.

have some peculiar obsession against
sugar. Sugar Is the easiest of all foods
to digest, the most quickly assimilat
ed, and the best emergency ration
when exhaustion impends and re
freshment is needed to enable one to
carry on in the effort. Many people

blank, in order to get to sleep, It's a
sign that MENTALLY you're above
the average. -
At least that's what the scientists
tell us, and the scientists are sup
posed to know everything.
IT WORKS like this:
1 If you aren't much of a thinker
that is, If you are more active
physically than mentally your mind
Is at rest when you go to bed, and you
drop off to sleep quickly.
But if you ARE a thinker, If your
mind is working constantly at some
problem or other, your mind ISN'T
at rest when you go to bed, and this
mental restlessness keeps you awake.
NAPOLEON, you know. Is supposed
to have slept only about four
houis out of the 24 not, probably,
because he didn't need more sleep,
but because his mind was so busy
going over schemes of various sorts
that he couldn't get to sleep.

It may be only a NERVOUS STOM

YOU are familiar, of course, with
the goose-bone prophets, who pre

conduct of Insects, birds and animals.
Most of us laugh at them, but
there's really a little more to their
prophecies than we generally give
them credit for.
IT'S AN old saying, you know that
when swallows fly low, rain may
be expected.
Swallows feed on Insects In the air,
and when rain Is coming Insect fly
lower to escape the coldness of the
upper air that precedes a rainstorm.
But that way, the swallow predic
