Today's Roundup
YESTERDAY, In the pleasant company of
Earl Agcr and Charles Wlese of Tulelake,
we rode U. S. highway No. 97 from Klamath
Falls to Weed and return. It's a trip that is
familiar to virtually every
resident of the Klamath basin,
but we are impelled, by what
we saw and the line of thought
it stimulated, to write a bit
about It here today.
We used to call it the Weed
Klamath Falls highway. When
we came here many years ago,
tt was made up of alternate
stretches of lightly oiled and
vauaUH m n A tnmp n f it
i ' ' I winding over Deer mountain.
laapcsJ We got on the road, in those
EPLEY days, by driving out South
Sixth street, and then over the old Midland
road by the G. N. roundhouse; the straight shot
across the Klamath river bridge by the golf
course hadn't been constructed at that time.
It wasn't yet much of a road then, but its
completion was one of the prime community
objectives, for we all realized how vital it was
to have this link between The Dalles-California
highway and the Pacific highway. Already, in
spite of its semi-primitive condition in those
days. It was carrying a lot of traffic tliat de
manded something be done.
With the excellent cooperation of the Cali
fornia and Oregon highway departments, the
road was brought to its present state. The cut
off to Midland from the junction on Green
springs highway was built, and later Cougar
cutoff eliminated the Deer mountain grades and
curves. It is not yet the highway it should be.
but we know men who claim they have driven
the road from Weed to Klamath Falls, about
70 miles, in about 70 minutes. It became a part
of U. S. highway No. 97, a major traffic carrier
between all northwest points and California.
Completion of the Willamette highway connec
tion into the Willamette valley enhanced its
importance: forthcoming construction of Warm
Springs cutoff right into Portland area proper
will add still more to its significance in the
Coast highway picture.
Scenic Beauty
BUT It ti more than just a carrier of fast traf
fic. It has unique and impressive scenic
Driving down in the late afternoon with Mr.
Ager and Mr. Wiese two gentlemen who are
not above admitting inspiration from the mourn
tains, desert and countryside we were struck
with the magnificence of the' views afforded on
the westbound trip.
There's that long drive across the drained bed
of old Lower Klamath lake, the rugged moun
tains on the horizon for some reason always re
minding us of Indian war and struggling wagon
trains. There' a run through Butte valley,
which some day may blossom into a veritable
garden under the benificence of expanding ir
rigation. Then a smooth, easy jump over Cougar
pass, through a fine pine forest, and down
across Grass Lake, that used to be Klamath's
rail head.
Beyond that, of course, come the best views
of the journey's scenic masterpiece. Mt. Shasta,
shouldering the sky, stands out in front of you
in sharp focus for most of the trip into Weed,
and it dominates the landscape if you go down
U. S. 99. Shasta is terrific. It is worth watching
for hours. Living near it, if you are one who
raises his eyes beyond the window sill or the
tops of the buildings across the way. it comes
to mean something in your life. Hardboiled
business men who Live down there have ad
mitted as much to us.
Shasta lies ahead or to your left on the
final stretch into Wed. But off to the right is a
striking view across a rugged basin, carpeted
by junipers, ringed by now snowy mountains,
studded by lava rock buttes in odd shapes. To
the west is a rampart of more high mountains.
The west-bound trip on the road from Klam
ath to Weed is an outstanding scenic experience.
It Deserves Recognition
BECAUSE of all it has to offer, as a vital con
necting link, as a carrier of through traf
fic, as a road of real scenic worth, US No. 97
from Klamath to Weed deserves a place high
in the consideration of California and Oregon
highway builders as they plot their extensive
post-war highway improvement program.
We understand that some work is recommend
ed for it in the so-called Collier highway con
struction outline in California, notably an 11
mile stretch south and west from Dorris. Good
as it is as compared with those days we were
talking about earlier in this space, it needs and
deserves a great deal of improvement to do the
job it ought to do.
And it needs to be given a better break by
those who, officially and unofficially, direct the
attention of motorists to fast, logical highway
routes. We have a feeling that California high
way officialdom, in particular, has been in
clined in recent years to underestimate or ig
nore its importance. California outdid Oregon
for a while in pushing construction on this
route. We hope Californians take a new look
at this important interstate connection.
WASHINGTON. March 14 Why some re
publican leaders are reaching for the
whip is not difficult to ascertain. You can
guess this one accurately from the scoreboard,
which to date shows no runs, no hits, and in
numerable errors.
Their congressional leadership Is in danger
of nullification, and 'this of course means nulli
fication of democracy. The matter is no less
important than that. The Trumanites (unions?)
who look at the situation gleefully as a chance
to ruin the election prestige of their adversaries
need new glasses. The republicans who think
they can gain political prestige by appealing
to class groups arc no less blind. -
The only development which could save this
democracy is for the republicans to get the
chance for leadership which the people gave
them in the last election. Otherwise there
will be no leadership, only nullifying conflict at
the helm.
Mr. Truman did not have to call off his
vacation for a crisis in Greece. He has one
here at home which would warrant attention.
If you do not believe me, look at the scoreboard
on the gross Washington leadership to date:
It Takes Time
THE closing of the senate hearings normally
would bring a report and bill on union
reform within a week or ten days. Then will
come along senate debate which reporters sus
pect cannot be concluded for three or more
weeks. The house committee was late getting
started for some reason, but has a plan to get
its bill out there ahead of the senate. Also
the debate there will be shorter. But after
action is taken by the house, the two bills will
go to conference (because both bills will not be
exactly alike) and the final form will be
wrangled out. Ultimately dispatched to the
White House thereafter, the legislation faces
prospect of veto and" it may then return to
both houses to pass over a veto,
Anyone who figures all this can be done
within two months normally is taking liberty
with reasonableness. It is more likely to re
quire three or more.
The final form, as nearly everyone has
guessed by now (although you read it first here
last December and repeatedly since then.) is
likely to follow the Case bill with some modi
fications, or what will be called the Ball-Taft
Smith bill this time. It will be practically the
same as Mr. Truman voted last year before elec
tion, establishing government arbitration boards.
Those in charge of congressional affairs judge
much of the debate will center around the pro
posals to abolish the closed shop and the re
strictions upon industry-wide bargaining both
amendments of Minnesota's Senator Ball. One
or both might be passed by one house, but the
chances of either passing both houses are slim.
So while some republican leaders are claim
ing the job they are doing in congress is un-
precedentedly tremendous, they can hardly
escape the conclusion that:
' all the current trouble and more com
ing, the result is apt to be just what was
passed last session in a democratic congress and
failed then by veto.
J I cox, iw iv at mvtct. inc. t. m. esq fti sat, orr. "
"At this desk every scrap of paper is placed neatly In the
wastebasket I could learn to love the kind of man who
its heral"
I OOK at the scoreboard again. They have
L pushed up. near to final enactment and
then stopped the bill limiting the presidency to
two terms (a matter which could wait until
1950 at least before it could have any practical
effect); also they have pushed abolition of the
portal-to-portal backpay increases (incidentally
labor did not object strenuously), and the pro
posed cuts in the budget. On the budget they
have spent considerable time and patience on
the theory that they should pare expenses
before adopting a tax reduction.
This latter step naturally has had the effect
of postponing tax reduction which many re
publicans consider to be the swiftly needed
key to economic advancement of the country,
equal in importance almost to labor legislation.
This proposed tax stimulation to economic ac
tivity has now run into the Truman promotion
of more loans and relief to Europe. The ques
tion of loans has weakened some republican
backing for a 20 per cent cut and caused some
congressmen privately to talk about 15 or 10
per cent or maybe even less.
Now I am informed with the utmost re
liability, the Truman administration has not
contemplated getting anything from abroad
in return for the loans. Indeed high democrats
tell me they cannot get anything in return for
the money for instance any guarantees from
Greece or Italy or the other nations which
would promote our struggle to maintain our
ideals in those nations against the growth of
communist and Russian interests, or any com
mitments. Apparently the administration policy
has had the preliminary effect of blocking the
planned republican tax reduction without get
ting anything in return from abroad I know
of, in the way of secret or public promises.
This would seem to make American taxpayers
suffer not only a loss in proposed tax reduc
tions, but apparently continued loss of their
interests abroad in the nations where com
munism has been active politically in the minor
ity. Otherwise, as Senate Republican Floor Lead
er White said in a speech inserted in the record
not long ago, the republicans have been snowed
in heavily with routine work. The trouble is
you cannot put snow on the scoreboard.

Wednesday's historic develop
ment naturally is a matter of
grave concern, but it scarcely
can cause surprise to those who
have been watching closely over
a long period. It's the big show
down which was inevitable, and
the most remarkable thing about
it is that it didn't come sooner.
The events leading to this de
nouement are the result of a
studied, cut-and-dried policy laid
down in Moscow nearly a quar
ter of a century ago, and they
form one of the most amazing
chapters of world history. They
read like melodramatic fiction.
The story starts with the bol
shevist revolution of 1917 which
overthrew the czar and estab
lished the Soviet government.

Well, in '39 Hitler and Stalin
made the non - aggression pact
which was followed immediately
by the war. Chaos hit Europe on
the double-quick. And It's' in
teresting to recall that on its
heels we find Soviet Statesman
Molotov, then both premier and
foreign minister, saying in a
speech that Britain and "France
had declared "something In the
nature of an ideological war on
Germany," and adding:
"There Is absolutely no justi
fication for a war of this kind
. . . everybody should under
stand that ideology cannot be
destroyed by force ... It is there
fore not only senseless but crimi
nal to wage such a war as a war
for 'the destruction of Hitlerism
camouflaged as a fight for demo
cracy.' "
Russia Attacked
Anyway, then came a stagger
ing deviation which Moscow
hadn't expected. Hitler became
suspicious of Russia and at
tacked her, with a resulting up
heaval which created far great
er disorganization than anyone
had dreamed of. Finlly, as the
tide turned and Russia began to
thrust the Germans back in the
east, she inaugurated her de
