UNIT PLAN SUCCESS
Crook County School Huperlate-

Thu county unit plan has mot with
success In Crook county, according to
n letter received from J. E. Myers, of
Prlnevllle, county superintendent of
schools for Crook county, by Mrs.
TwyU Ferguson. Klamath county
superintendent. - - -
"On thn juimo nmnunt f aaaair
and a general lowering of mlllage we
hav0 Paid all old warrants for three
ears back," Myers said. " "
"Tho schools aro now on a cash
hauls with funds on bund to run un
til tho October tax Is collected. Jlural
children lire ou the same basts as
town children. Some of the rural
.school hav0 used more supplemen
tary material titan tho town schools.
I report wonderful success for the
county unit for-the first year, and
can seo a larger field for next year. I
believe It will be as advantageous
for Klamath county as for Crook."

Reprcsentatlvo N. J, Slanott, of Ore
gon, chairman 'of the committee, on
public lands In congress and Me of
the conspicuous leaders at the Na
tional capltol, Is regarded hy UaoVs
of national farm organisations as

Is the only matter requiring congres

Is the greatest of all questions.
Ounce Held MstaJte
Farm leaders ask of what benefit
It will be to the people of Eastern
Oregon to change their representa
tive in congress at this time. They
point out that the Oregon man has
served his apprenticeship and has
landed .securely on hhj legislative
feet To replace him with a fledgling
would be to place his district at a
grave disadvantage. In truth It woald
m'eaa that for years to cosme the sec
ond district of Oregon would setter
a place of obscurity at the Katies!
capltali ' '
There ta net a Mt t see deaptac

nothing In Washington. It takes four
years to get his seat warm and an
other four to mount to a position
where he can b0 really useful. In
the early stages of bla life- here he
must bo content to follow. He will
not be permitted to lead.
SlnnoU Prove Exception
Fortunately Slnnott proved an ex
ception to the rule. In tsss than two
years he was able to accomplish
something worth while. He hsd In
that brief period won the esteem of
tho leaders and It wsg decided to
put him In a position where his abil
ity could bo coined Into achievement.
A new man In Washington Is con
fronted by a veritable matn of pre
cedent, rules, seniority and a number
of other obstacles which nee'eslty or
tradition had erected. It Is Impos

It Is necessary for a new man to
tak0 a place at the foot of the class.

thing possible for their constituents
will not voluntarily give place to tho
