Editorial Correspondence
Prineville, Oregon, June 14.
town and an attractive Jnn called the "Ochocho." Why aren't
there MORE attractive "little inns" In Southern Oregon?
Thli is chiefly a lumber district with six mills In full-blast
operation, thanks to the U. S. defense program. The man at the
service station is attired like a cowhand, something entirely
new in our motoring experience. He reckons Prineville is
"roughly speaking around 8000.
. .
We have always known Eastern Oregon was Interesting
country, but this Is our first motor trip through the John Day
portion of it. Left Pendleton after lunch, and drew up before the
"Ochocho" at 8 30, the proprietor In shirt sleeves came out for
our luggage and suggested we hustle, as the dining room closed
promptly at half-past seven. (He made the announcement in a
manner which left no doubt that It DID close then, and would
keep open for NO ONE, particularly on Saturday night.)
We wonder If Grant Wood has ever been In this John Day
territory, If not it would certainly be his dish. From Pendleton
to John Day there are at least a thousand views from the high
way which Mother Nature set up especially for this master of
the contemporary landscape. At least so we thought, as we spun
up hill and down dale, along almost a deserted highway.
What COLORS! The wheat fields. they don't measure them
by the acre but by the square mile in these parts, are unbe
lievably chromatic. We didn't suppose so many shades of brown
and yellow existed, light, medium, dark, with a deep purple
at one extreme, and a lemon-yellow at the other. Some of the
wheat Is being cut and probably before another two weeks the
harvest will be on in full blast.
Where there Isn't wheat there are hay and dark brown rocks of
grotesque shapes, also scores of 'Table Rocks." and real husky.
sweaty hay hands at work pitching the grass Into the hay wagons,
in omer places piling It into stacks. Not so bad this sort of
weather (around 79), but must have been terrible two days back
when the mercury hit the century mark.
Also a sheep and cattle country, particularly the former. Half
way between Pendleton and John Day we were held up half an
hour trying to get through a band of sheep and lambs that liter
ally packed the right of way from fence to fence for. It seemed,
half a mile at least. A couple of black-tanned sheep herders with
long poles and red hats forced an opening or ye editor might still
be there, hesitating about running over the silly, defenseless
They (the sheep) had Just been sheared and looked terribly
shabby and downcast. The lambs hadn't, and the way they
bounded about when the approaching car alarmed them was some
thing to arouse envy in a grasshopper's heart.
Speaking of grasshoppers, along one stretch of highway, the
pavement was covered with what we took to be brown, big-winged
grasshoppers, but the service station man at Mt Vernon said
they were locusts. Whatever they were, the service station man
may have been kidding a city slicker, the pavement must have
appealed to them at the candlelight does to the moth, they
swarmed over it and from both sides In spite of the fact their
crushed fellows practically covered every slimy Inch of It.
Speaking of pavement, only

period. With true public spirit, various entertainments have been
put on to raise money for the project, and citizens have also con
tributed Individually such articles as chairs, reading lamps, daven
ports, card tables, rugs, etc., etc. The State Department of
Education has provided a trained, coordinator to take charge of
the club for the summer period, and meanwhile a local committee
is working on the problem of having a permanent place ready
when the Junior High club has to be closed.
One group has suggested that dances be put on at this club once
or twice a week, where the boys can meet the local girls under
proper conditions and supervision, as one citizen remarked, give
the beer Joints, road houses and night clubs some competition,
and keep the lads off the streets and worse places. There has
been some opposition to this proposal we are told: at least no
definite decision has been reached to date, but It Impresses the
present writer as an excellent idea.
As before stated, the air base police cooperate with the
Pendleton police, making their city headquarters at the local
police station. One surprising feature, not only do the local
police aid the base police, but vice versa. the base police aid the
local police whenever the need arises. In short, there is a fine
spirit of coordination between the two. but to date, there has
been no police problem, and the people of Pendleton expect none.
Aa one rttiren expressed it: "You must realize these air base lads
are really the tops, the cream of the crop."
Ever since the construction of the Tendleton air base started,
prices have been rising slowly but surely. In some cases profiteer
ing has been attempted, but the cases are Isolated and that factor
is not regarded as serious. Several business men, however,
remarked about the desirability of some form of price control, but
no one seemed to know any legal way to achieve It. Rents, we
were told, have been kept down by the great number of residents
who are renting rooms and even

Is milk fattening? Are pota
toes, bread, toast, crackers, salt,
eggs, ham, steak, chops, bacon,
oatmeal, nuts, popcorn, straw
berries fatterning? Sometimes a
correspondent asks whether
drinking water with meals, be
tween meals or at other times
to satisfy thirst is fattening.
Common notions that this and
that is fattening are little if any
more substantial than similar
fancies that certain foods or con
diments are "reducing"; notably
vinegar, lemon Juice, pickles.
Some foods yield more calor
ies per ounce, mouthful or pound
than others, and only In that
sense is one food more fattening
man another. The fattening ef
fect of any food depends on its
caloric value and of course on
the amount of the food con
sumed and the proportion of the
nutritive material assimilated.
Potato yields, say, 440 calories
per pound, whether the calories
yield heat, energy, or reserve
fuel stored as fat: bread yields
1400 calories per pound; maca
roni, spaghetti, noodles, vermi
celli each yield nearly the same,
1650 calories per pound; crack
ers yield about 1900 calories per
pound; fresh sweet milk 325 cal
ories per pint; buttermilk 165;
skim milk 170; cream 010 calor
ies per pint; cottage cheese 510
calories per pound; butter 3,600
calories per pound: oleomarga
rine 3,500 calories per pound;
olive oil, 3,800 calories per
pound; various shortening made
from vegetable oils yield ap
proximately the same number of
calories as olive oil, butter, lard
or oleomargarine.
Remember, every food that
yields calories at all is more or
less nourishing, strengthening.

McNary, knowing the shortage
of tin In this country, requested
the geological survey to investi

The result was a blank. Dr.

Who Are Isolationists For?

Are they so Ignorant? If they do
know, who are they working for
Hitler or the United States?
The isolationists are silent on
whether we may expect econom

But I ask. what else may we ex

of a rich farmer whose roads to

to whom he must pay tribute or

British Suspect German Feint ,
At Russia to Cover Real Aim
(This daily feature, conducted by DaWItt MacKensie, la being
written la his absence on vacation by Fred Vanderschmldt).
Tabloid interpretations of to-
day's hesdllners:
British attack In north Africa:
This is practical application of
Britain's new war plan, ex
pounded only a week ago by
Winston Churchill: "Fierce and
stubborn resistance, even against
heavy odds, even under excep
tional difficulties and disadvan
tages." For two months the for
midable axis forces have been
astraddle the Egyptian border,
completing every preparation
for the assault on Suez, deterred
only by the scrappy little To
bruk garrison Inside their lines.
Now the British, reinforced
by men and machines from East
Africa, have attacked these axis
concentrations in force, despite
the blazing heat, despite the toll
they knew the swarms of Ger
man dive bombers would be
able to take. By doing so, they
may be saving Suez.
British express fear German
threat to Russia Is a feint: This
appears to reflect an attempt by
the British leadership to dispel
wishful thinking about a Ger
man-Russian conflict (incurable
British habit) and to prevent
any relaxation of preparedness
and watchfulness at home,
There is solid ground for expect
ing another German-Russian
get-together, probably at Rus
sia's expense. But it also is ap
parent that Germany is applying
tremendous military pressure to
Russia in an attempt to get a
free hand in the wheat country
of the Ukraine and perhaps the
oil fields of the Caucasus, if not
even more.
To the disillusionment of Rus
sia, Hitler is proving again that
no country on the borders of the
third reich can in the long run
maintain complete sovereignty
no matter how much friendship
it offers. The pattern of Nazi
land's "friends" has always been
the same: Infiltration by hordes
of "specialists" from without;
steady demoralization by fifth
columnists and "Quislings"
within. Stalin has resisted this
process; indeed, he even has
decorated the - peasantry for
thwarting stealthy violations of
what is cautiously called "the
western Russian border" by gen
tlemen with German names.
These same peasants have not
risen to the glorious task of
growing wheat for the reich; In
deed, they are reported this year
to have eaten the grain distrib
uted among them for spring
sowing. How this sort of story
must infuriate Adolf Hitler, who
has all the rest of the European
continent to feed, can be imag
ined with the greatest of ease.
Italy freezes U. S. credits as
reprisal: This action by Italy,
but not Germany, may well fore
cast a Hitlerian policy of push
ing Italy out In front to do the
blustering and take the risks in
this era of dangerous and explo
sive relations between America
and the Axis. The German re
action to Axis credit freezing by
the United States Is feeble so
far, and German spokesmen are
using the word "unjustified,"
which must be one of the weak
est words In the Nazi vocabu
lary. Probably the Germans are
figuring that Washington will
not be so tough with Italy as
with Germany. At any rate, the
uermans are playing safe and
seeing, first, what happens as a
result or Italy's action. It Is
likely, also, that freezing of
American credits in Italy will
bag more cash than it would In
Germany: United States enter
prise has had much tougher go
ing in Germany for a long time.
