Everybody Register Tomorrow
DETTER be safe than be sorry!
If that wise adage had been followed when Hitler
first started into the Rhineland, the world situation
today would be different, VERY different indeed !
It was the failure to play safe, the willingness to
take chances, the almost universal disposition to
regard the Hitler menace as exaggerated and the
product of war hysteria, that have been largely
responsible for the tragic predicament of world
democracy at the present tragic time.
yHE civilian registration program which opens
here tomorrow, serves notice on the world, that as
far as Jackson County is concerned at least, this
peaceful community in Southern Oregon is going to
take no chances.
There is no war hysteria here. No one expects
shells from the Japanese fleet to come soaring over
the coast range tomorrow. The prospect of a Nazi air
bombardment, via the Bering straits is conceded to
be extremely remote, if not impossible.
This country IS actually if not technically in the
war. No one can tell precisely when it WILL become
a shooting war. When it does, no one can tell just
WHERE the first blow will fall.
Itmay not be here on the Pacific Coast. On the
other hand, who knows, it MAY be.
AT any rate Jackson County is not going to be
" found napping, and in accordance with Governor
Sprague's wise and farsighted policy, a general regis
tration for civilian preparedness and defense will be
held tomorrow, the regular election day polling places
being open and operating for that purpose.
TX7E need hardly emphasize this is an extremely
" important occasion. This progressive com
munity as usual has taken the leadership, Jackson
County being one of the few in the state, calling the
regular election boards into action. The outcome
will be watched with interest all up and down the
coast, and it now depends upon you, and you, and
you, as to whether the effort is to be a failure or a

a complete and entire success.
Register at any regular
between the hours of 2 and 8 p.m., so the proper
authorities may know what, in an emergency, you are
best fitted to do, and proper organization can be
started at once.
MO drilling will be involved. No uniforms will be
passed around. This isn't a fighting effort, in
the general accepted meaning of the term.
It is a PREPAREDNESS effort. And certainly
the present war has demonstrated its supreme im
portance. For modern war is total v and total war is war
for the civilian as well as the combatant: war behind
the front, as well as at it. Armies can't stop fighting to
put out fires, aid injured citizens, give directions to
bomb shelters, prevent panic, look after sanitation,
communication, morale, or do the thousand things
that must be done if a community is PROPERLY
prepared to defend itself. This will be work for the
registrants to do.
PVEN granting that actual hostilities here in the
" Rogue River Valley are extremely unlikely,
which is true. Nevertheless, there are other things
of vital importance in general preparedness not in a
direct military sense at all, but simply part of a co
ordinated, common sense plan of being ready at
home when, and if, a shooting war does come, instead
of following the European example, and only getting
busy in this direction AFTER it's too late!

terms of some draftees and
everyone knows that would be
unpopular (leaving out any con
sideration of sending troops
abroad, which will no doubt be
considered separately in con
gress, and probably defeated.)
IIP to now Mr. Roosevelt's
moves have suggested an in
clination to maintain two theo
ries of government at the same
time: (1) A farmer-labor theory
advocating increased farm
prices, and allowing wage in
creases, some strikes, short
hours, and (2) a defense govern
ment which requires price con
trols and wage limits, utmost
Apparently these two ideas
cannot be maintained side by
side much longer.
THE Iceland occupation an-
nouncement was put together
in a hurry. No mimeographed
co'c: of Mr. Roosevelt's mes
sage were available even after
the reading of it started in the
house. But the political ground
work for it was cautiously laid
in advance.
Three days ahead. Senator
Wheeler, the government oppo
sition leader, was able to an
nounce he had heard it would
be done. His reaction then gave
the White House a fairly good
idea that no strong objections
would be encountered. (Wheel
ers' words were:
"It might be all right to take
over Iceland for national de
fense, but who knows what
Colonel Knox or Mr. Stimson
may order the army or navy to
do after they get there?"
The leait that Secretaries
Knox and Stimson will do was
made clear in Mr. Roosevelt's
mejiiage. They will keep the
seas clear and thus assure the
safety of convoys between here
and Iceland "as well as on the
seas between the United State?
and all other strategic points."

own or anyone else's blood pres
sure. ,
Who cares about blood pres
sure? They who know least about
it seem to care most.
I repeat, the questions people
constantly ask about the effects
of this and that on high or low
blood pressure are foolish ques
tions, and would be dangerous
questions if I tried to answer
them. '
I repeat, blood pressure, high
or low, is not in itself a malady
or an independent or primary
condition which calls for any
particular remedy, diet or pre
caution. The blood pressure is
just one feature, which may or
may not help the physician to
diagnose or understand what is
wrong with the patient or his or
her hygiene or way of living.
If you ask me, as a health
teacher or adviser, I tell you
the best plan is to pay no atten
tion to your blood pressure.
Leave such questions to the Judg
ment of your physician.

Housewives Note
Cost Increases
Farm Bloc
Opposes Curb
Labor Squadron
To Help Farmers
Br John W. Kelly-
Washington, D. C, July 9
Housewives in Oregon, who are
careful buyers, have noticed the
gradual increase in the cost of
many items at grocery stores,
the meat shops, and various oth
er commodities. In the national
capital Leon Henderson, of the
office of price administration
and civilian supply (OPACS), is
aware of the increase, just as he
is familiar with the motor prices
which have gone up despite his
warning. It is the Job of Hender
son to keep tab on prices, and
this is done by a staff of men
and women who are constantly
drawing charts and marking
each increase (there are no de
creases). Mr. Henderson has placed a
ceiling on several items, but as
he has no actual authority, the
specialists in those items can
ignore him if they desire, and
some of them have. Mr. Hender
son is aware that the cost of
living will be higher but to the
best of his ability he will sit on
the lid. However, there is a
group of congressmen who insist
that OPACS shall not interfere
with the rising prices until and
unless congress gives permis
sion. In the main this is the so
called farm bloc, and on farm
legislation this group usually
gets what it wants, regardless of
President Roosevelt, the direc
tor of the budget or any other
agency attempting to interfere.
IT can be stated for the record
that the entire Oregon delega
tion are in the farm bloc, Re
publicans and Democrat. So also
are members of the Washington
delegation and the delegation
from Idaho. It is one point on
which all these states have a
common interest. Fundamental
ly, what the farm bloc demands
Is that the farmers receive for
their product what is known as
"parity prices," which is not ex
actly the cost of production but
a price which should reasonably
satisfy them.
Of course, everything that
goes on the table comes from
the farm, and much that goes on
the back comes from the farm,
so it gets down to food and cloth
ing, two of the three things es
sential in living the third, shel
ter. Like every other producer,
the farmer's costs are going up;
labor is hard to get, and if he
requires new machinery he dis
covers that priorities have step
ped in. But OPACS knows this:
the farmers are not receiving
the increase in canned goods
now moving, for these were
canned on last year's crop. They
will obtain better prices for
their products this season, and
Mr. Henderson sees no reason
why goods now on shelves
should be upped in prices when
they were processed under the
old order. Before OPACS starts
fixing prices, however, a rip
snorting battle can be expected
in congress.
e e e
SO serious is the shortage of
agricultural labor in Oregon,
Washington, Idaho, Montana,
Utah. Wyoming and Colorado
that the department of labor is
organizing a flying squadron of
farm hands to be transported
from place to place, many of
these workers to come from
New Mexico and southern Cali
fornia. The department has
called on the department of ag
riculture for list of labor
needed for crops, county by
county, and has investigated the
cost of transportation. Wheat
farmers in eastern Oregon have
been interviewed as to how
many hands they will require
and when they will be needed.
Orchardists have had similar in
quiries. With this data the labor
department has already started
its caravan of workers and they
will be thrown into one county
after another as crops are har
vested. It is the first time the labor
department has felt called upon
to furnish farm help and the ex
periment is being watched with
interest, for if It is successful
these labor battalions may have
to be used each year until the
emergency is over and people
leave the shipyards and muni
tions plants and return to the
soil. Labor department says the
movement will be in an orderly
manner and unless something
goes wrong every farmer who
is crying for help to save his
crop will have his wants sup
plied. Wages, of course, will be
higher than have prevailed, but
it is a case of paying more or
losing a crop.
. .
SENTIMENT on "the hill" is
distinctly against helping the
Soviets. Members of congress
recall that many of the recent
strikes in defense industries
were promoted by communists
and recognize that the delay in
furr!v'r.g material to the Bri
tish as well as equipping Amer
ican troops can be laid at the
door of these agents of Moscow.
Congressmen assert that if
American goods help Russia de

the capital expects Russia to win
