However, the voice of the majority will not silence the voice of the
minority. As treHevera In the fundamental feature» of American democracy,
we Insist that though the majority rules, the minority has a right to be
Whatever illegal action the victorious school board took In the past Is
not erased by the vote. Though the public has indorsed one member of
the school board giving tacit support to the other two members, the laws
of right and wrong can't be amended by this vote.
Monday's vote proved that 57 percent of those voting at the election
felt the alleged misdeeds of the past were either illusions or of such Insig
nificant character they didn't justify a housenleanlng. The vote proves
that more than half of those voting believe their Interests are being served
by the present school board.
In that respect the minority admits defeat. The minority has no per
sonal axe to grind with Bill Shuey. It congratulates him on his splendid
At the same time, the minority reserves the right to criticize and In
vestigate. The majority has spoken, but In our democracy any vote of
confidence Is only a temporary one.
Future misdeeds, future revelations of past misdeeds may be sufficient
to swing the delicate balance on which the present victory rests.
.Meanwhile, the verdict of public opinion Is on our desks. That verdict
demands our n-spect and recognition. But as Americans we Insist on our
right to expose that which we consider to be Illegal or Inefficient by any
public organization such as the local school board.
This defeat has not
dampened our zeal to acquaint our rvaders with the truth as we see It.
We will continue to see and report right and wrong from our own
viewpoint. We will not falter In our desire for good government and for
the progress and prosperity of Mill City and the canyon.
Population Up, Influence Down
Not In forty years has there been such an Interest In a national census.
Clth-s all over Oregon are reporting tremendous gains In population.
Counties like Sakin-wated Marlon county admire the new view from
the altitude the figures have reached.
“The more the merrier,” seems to be the general concensus of opinion.
Many Oregonians are elated over the fact that the new census will
permit the stat«' to add congressmen. But the sad fact Is that the more
populous an American state gets the less Its proportional Influence In Con
gress becomes. As long as the senate membership Is static at two members,
th«- proportional Influence of Nevuda with l«*ss than 200,000 residents with
thns- nwmbers In both houses is two to three times greater than that of
states of Oregon's population.
Again though cities of size and population are Impressive and im
portant, the countryside surrounding the cities remains the real backbone
of lhe nation. Our large northwestern cities owe their existence to the
power, th«- timber, the farms and the natural resources beyond th«‘ city
limit««. Cities are centers, that grow only as their hinterlands progress.
They can grow no faster than the areas that serve them.
No part of th«- pride In the growth of our cities belongs to the people
who live in small towns or on farms. Let's not permit th«' Salems, the Port
lands and ill«' Eugenes to hog all th«< glory.
