AS we approach this year's
end look forward to
ward the beginning of the
New Year, it is our wish
for the orchardists of Hood
River that they may in re
trospective mood feel a satis
faction in a realization that
they have done their part
in producing a portion of the
nation's finest apple tonnage.
May we tell Hood River or
chardists that they should
face the coming apple season
with a spirit of confidence.
The care they expend on
their fruit trees deserves and
will win ultimate success.
To growers who are our
patrons, we wish to express
our thanks. To all growers
we express the hope that we
may become better acquain
ted. We may, with pardon
able pride, we think, point
to the stability of our fruit
sales organization. Our or
ganization is based on the
best business principles and
integrity extending over a
period of many decades. It
is our hope to become a con
stant, honored and respected
factor in the orcharding in
dustry of the Northwest.
We wish you a Happy
New Year.
By J. Arthur Riggs and
Paul McKercher.

program and even the amusements

of teaching, needle work, keeping

household service. Looking backward
from our present vantage ground we
iDinK oi these women as Jiving in an
extremely narrow and stunted environ
ment, and yet it was homes and
mothers like theee that produced the
sturdy and far seeing pioneers who
blazed the trail for the great America
or today, before 1840 then, America
may be said to have been a hand made
nation, but with the discovery of
steam as a propelling power a great
change was inaugurated and she be
came a machine made nation an iron
and coal and steam made nation whose
chief motive power was in her indus
nes. bwitt moving trains opened up
our vast western territories Tor ex
ploitation; steamboats plied up and
down the rivers and factories sprang
up everwyhere. What was the effect
of this great change upon the women?
The first thing it did was to drag them
from the home. Gradually the occupa
tions which had been performed in the
home, the spinning and clothes mak
ing, and much of the washing and the
baking began to be done on the whole
sale plan outside. With the opening
of innumerable factories there was a
great demand for unskilled labor and
women were pressed into the service
The seven original occupations in
creased and multiplied into thousands,
so that now it is no longer surprising
to learn in the morning paper that a
woman has been given a license as i
marine engineer. With the appoint
ment of police women in the cities, the
hand that rocks the cradle rules the
traffic of the business world. It must
be noted as a fact, hqwever, that
women as a class did not willingly or
eagerlv leave their hemes to fare forth
in the industrial world. Women were
then as they are now and always will
he. more interested ana more con
pprnpH over home and family than in
anvthine' lees in the world. The fact
m thev came forth with dragging and
reluctant feet, troubled and afraid, but
the vast industrial stream had caught
them and they had to swim with the
tide or sink. Conservative preachers
of that day admonished them from
ihpir milnits. fathers scolded and
mothers wept, but their daughters
went out into the world just the same
as youth always will. That was the
transitive neriod of women in indus-
trv. Rinea then thev have established
themselves in the economic life of the
n.tinn' thev have become experienced,
resourceful and alert. They have made
good, in a word.
J This transitive period in industry by
women is again being enacted, this
time in the field of politics, and even
as the women entered the industrial
world not as aggressors or usurpers,
but because they were needed in the
great industrial march of the country,
so now they are entering the field of
politics in response to a clarion call of
need, and after years of struggle on
the part of its promoters, headed by
such women as Susan B. Anthony,
Lucretia Motfc and Carrie Chapman
Catt, the banner of political sex equal
ity has been nailed to the American
masthead and just two years ago Con
gress passed the 19th Amendment to
the Constitution, which read as fol
lows: "The right of citizens of the
United States to vote shall not be de
nied or abridged by the U. S. or any
State on account of sex. Congress
shall have power to enforce this article
by appropriate legislation." And thus
the 25,000.000 women voters of the
United States are no longer to be
classed with children, criminals and
idiots, but are subject to the same reg
ulations regarding the franchise aa are
applied to men. .... i
To some reactionaries, both male
and female, it would almost seem as
though the millenium had come, lo

consider what the women may do and

women who were actively engaged in
seeking the vote it is to be hoped that
they have learned enough of the reeds
of the peoole in general and of the
masses in particular, so that they rn.y
be able to use the ballot intelligently
and to some purpose, Bnd it may be
that some of the energies heretofore
directed in the cause of suffrage may
be used in the labor movement. Not
so long ago many suffrage wcrkera be

manity were the gross inequalities of
women. These adjusted they believed,
with women having voice in govern
ment, wars would be avoided, social
evils remedied and the world a better
place to live in. but after campaigning
in cities, small towns and rural dis
tricts, she begins to see that just
"Votes for Women" may not amount
to mur h. but the votes of women cast
intelligently in the ttruggle against
the present cruel economic order may
make considerable difference. Perhaps

She is told that it is all right to talk of
surtrage for white women, but the
negro women must be kept from the
ballot the same as negro men. She
may even have witnessed the horrors
of a lynching, and she realizes that
votes for women on the ground of
democracy is a farce if that democracy
is denied to the sister American with a
dark skin. Thus it is quite likely that
many former suffrage workers will
plunge deeply into thefeconomic move
ment and there are doubtless many op
portunities for service along that line,
But what of the great rank and file
of women, the class that you and I be
long to, not one of us perhaps who had
any hand in winning the ballot or were
especially anxious in procuring it, but
who as conscientious citizens are will
ing to do our duty along political lines
if the occasion demands it. In order
to do our part in helping men to bring
about a better order of things and to
put a conscience in politics, it is nec
essary for us to inform ourselves on
some of the fundamentals of good cit
izenship. Thus we need education, and
education along practical lines. We
must be taught the A, B, C of local
politics which touch directly the wel
fare of our homes and our children's
lives. Neither voting nor politics is
complicated when .they become famil
iar ground. Just as you become an
efficient housekeeper by just mastering
the simplest of household duties, so
you can become a useful citizen by just
learning how to use your ballot at pri
maries and regular elections without
mistakes. Perhaps we have been prone
to think of politics as something vague
or remote, but this is not true if we
begin, not at the top but at the bot
tom, and when we have concerned our
selves not with presidential elections
or inter-allied conferences, but with
such humdrum subjects as clean
streets, good schools, pure milk and
water supplies, decent environment
and respectable pleasures for the
young, and when we have put into
practical demonstration these primer
lessons in our own home communities,
then we may begin to think of gradu
ating into a higher class : we may be
gin to reach out to the wider vision of
the nation, which is after all only the
home community writ large.
In forecasting women's future devel
opment in the field of politics, a prom
inent writer has tabulated it thus:
1. Women will not become less wo
manly, less maternal by engaging in
politics, and the reason is that wo
man 8 deepest interest, ner eternal
goal, the welfare of the human race,
remains and always will remain un
changed. By entering into politics she
dues not change her goal hut only
makes it more attainable by the power
of the ballot.
2. Women will not save America
politically in five or ten or twenty
years, and it is untair to judge or tceir
influence over a Drier term or years.
3. Their greatest influence in the
next few years will be in local and
municipal affairs; the reason being
that such affairs touch most closely
the home.
4. Women will combine with the
better class of men in driving out the
5. In party organization women
influence in the future will tend to
make these organizations more open
minded to the will of the majority.
Thus the power of bosses, male and
female, will wane.
6. There will be no "Woman s
Bloc" and any Woman a Party which
divides along purely sex lines will not
have a political success.
7. Legislation which concerns useir
with the welfare of the race can al
ways rely upon the strong support of
the women. There is no subject which
will appeal more to the women of this
nation than the subject oi child wel
fare. Let me quote a few atatistics
from a recent address of Secretary of
Labor Davis. He informs us that
there are approximately 250,000 in
fants who die every year from pre
ventable causes. Half a million chil
dren who are called defective or delin
quent are growing up almost totally
neglected. A million and a nan Doys
and girls of school age doomed to toil
n mine and mill and factory," and of
the 30,000,000 American schoolchildren
not one in ten is gaining in our public
schools an education that will fit them
for the places they must occupy in life.
You may ask what can women do to
remedy these evils and 1 answer:
Everything. First of all they can cre

of this sort, and secondly, they can
organize their own sex to demand leg

are innumerable instance of the suc
cess of women in forcing moral issues,
but let me cite one of the most notable
. t n i o i l
ones. I reier to ine reoeai oneppara
Towner Maternity Act. There existed
among certain of the politicians at Al
bany, New York, a bitter opposition to
making the federal act effective in the
state. The women were atrongly in
favor of it, however, and thus 20 pow
erful women s organizations sought to
enforce its adoption. In former times
women could only have coaxed and
begged and plead for its adoption,
while the wily politician would smile
nduleently and in nine cases out of
ten pay no attention to their requests,
but with 2,000.000 voters back of it
the case was different and a state
measure, called the Davenport Bill,
was passed. Senator Davenport him
self gave the entire credit to the
women who brought before the people
the great need for maternal and infant

We shall be happy indeed if the Amer

their motto these words of Franklin K.
Lane, who in writing of the American
nirittaid: "We believe in ourselves
and we believe in our kind, and believe

might mention then, child welfare
work, the continuance of prohibition.
the abolishing of race prejudice, a
fairer social and industrial order and
last bet not least, aid every way possi
ble in abolishing forever that terrible
form of legalized murder called war.
In attempting to do our tart in the
political field of tomorrow it would be
well for us as individuals to adopt a
pledge similar to the following on
which was read at a woman's political
netting a short time ago. It reads
thus: "Believirg in government by
ill do my
self about
public queeiionn, we pnncipita wnu
policies cf political partita ani the
qualifications of candidates for public
office. 2. To vote according to my
conscience in every election, primary
or final at which 1 am entitled to vote.
3. To obey the law even when I am
not in sympathy with all its provisions,
4. To support by all fair means the
policies that I approve of. 6. To re
spect the right oi other to uphold con
victions that may anrer rrom rny own.
6. To regard my citizenship as a
sacred trust.
If the majority of 25,000.000 women
voters were to take and keep even
such a simple pledge aa this, we should
not only be ideal citizens but we should
come near the "Kingdom of Heaven
upon Earth. Let ua not, however,
be discouraged if .the task seems be
yond us or if we feel that our individ
ual influence for good ta so limited it is
hardly worth the effort, and though we
may ran in accomplishing all that we
might wish for, let ua take comfort in
the words of that sweet New England
poet, b. JJicKinson, when she said:
"If I can keep one heart from breaking,
i Biiau not, nve in vain;
If 1 can ease one soul J.he aching,
Or cool one pain ;
Or lift one fainting robin
Into its nest again,
I shall not live in vain."
