WHY THE BITTERNESS?
Why should discussions of the Town­
send Old Age pension plan be marked with
so much bitterness?
The hOaring at the session of the city
council in Portland Wednesday is an in­
stance at point. Those who regard the
plan as a panacea that will abruptly and
completely end the depression have a right
to use every legitimate means they know
of to urge its adoption. To attempt to
force a favorable recommendation, how­
ever, by jeers and hisses at speakers who
oppose the plan, or threats to remember
at the next election practical-mindea city
commissioners who view the $200 part of
the proposal as a hopeless dream, is any­
thing but legitimate. It is the mob in­
stinct, thoughtless and inflammatory.
A sane plan for old age pensions has
nothing to fear from careful analysis and
calm discussion. If the Townsend plan
needs hooting and catcalling and intimi­
dation for its support, the implication is
that it is unsound.

THE STATE NRA CODE
Adoption of the proposal to set up a
state NRA code authority would mean
good jobs for a few bureau members fi­
nanced by assessments upon the Indus­
tries involved, but what else would it ac­
complish ?
Failure, in part at least, for the codes
to function under the national authority
as well as hoped for is not due to weak­
ness on the part of the federal govern­
ment and the need of state reinforcement,
but in large degree to the inherent diffi­
culty of regimenting American business,

Connacher and associates, who
also have taken over from the
Western Timber Co. a tract of
timber on the United Railways
in Columbia county. Considera­

said to be close to $1,500,000.
Mr. Connacher expects to clean
up the tract within five years

STATE NRA
Right at the time when the NRA is
bogging down badly all over the land,
there is being considered a bill in the Ore­
gon legislature which would create a state
NRA. With this proposal we have little
sympathy. Perhaps this writer as been
a little too closely in touch with the work­
ings of one national code autority to have
a balanced view on this subject. Never­
theless, the NRA industrial code experi­
ment has proven pretty conclusively that
good manners in business cannot be put
there by force. The codes set up, .what
were termed, compulsory fair trade prac-
tices. It was believed in the beginning
that the various code authorities, with the
backing of the NRA administration, could [
prevent price cutting and ruinous trade i
practices. The national code authorities
found themselves helpless. The regional
operating directly under the wing of the
nationals were worse than helpless. Now
for the state to attempt something that
has proven a “flop” on a national scale
seems almost sublimely ridiculous.—Roser
