THE LEAGUE TO ENFORCE PEACE.
Dairy, hr Carrier, rer Tear $3.00 Ter Month-
An interesting sidelight on the League of Nations
controversy is found in a statement issued by the League
to Enforce Peace, of which former President Taft has
long been president and active leader.
It had been reported that there was considerable dis
satisfaction and rebellion in the organization, owing to

WHAT KATY REALLY DID.
At last v. e know what Katy did. False, fleeting, per
jured Katy! Of whom Dr. Holmes complained years ago,
''Thou sayest an undisputed thing in such a solemn way!"
All these years she has borne the reputation of a song
stress, when as a matter of fact all she did was to rub
her wings together and make a pale green noise.
The movie camera operated by Dr. Raymond Ditmars,
of the New York zoo, is responsible for proving how false
ly Katy posed as Mary, queen of garden song. Patiently
he watched and waited, camera set for hours at a time to
make the slow-moving film which tells the secret.
This is only one of the bits of nature lore which his
camera has betrayed, from a faithful record of the antics
of a nine-foot cobra to the slow development of frogs and
toads from egg to maturity.
There is a fascination as well as education in these
illustrations straight from the great story-book of na
ture, whose power, for those who will look and listen, will
"sing a more wonderful song, or tell a more marvelous
The senators who advocated rejection of the League
of Nations pact are trying to find a soft place on which
to light. They say they are willing to stand for the
League of Nations provided it is amended in certain im
material ways. Of course, it will be amended, as every
body knows the first draft given out was merely a work
ing plan' to be thoroughly gone over and perfected after
full discussion. Nobody who favors the League idea is
opposed to making amendments provided they tend to
make the plan more workable.
The Grants Pass boy who captured single-handed a
machine gun and twenty Germans has reached New York,
on his way to Oregon. Seems like there should be a re
ception coming to a fellow like that, when he gets off the
train at his old home town. Since this hero's father is a
resident of Salem now, the Capital City ought to watch
for his coming also, and make a day so big they will print
it in red letters on the olandars hereafter.
the League's direction. The statement adds:
"Mr. Taft's attitude, which is substantially that of the
League, is that he would accept the Paris covenant as it
stands, and thank God for it; that it does not, however,
fully meet his ideals, not being as strong in some respects
as the plan we have been advocating; that he would like
to see amendments that would strengthen it, and thinks
it wise to make changes that will make still more clear the
meaning which we understand it to carry. He is also
favorable to making changes that will placate opinion,
especially in the direction of definite acceptance of the
Monroe Doctrine, which we understand is already the
basis of the instrument."
It may be added that this also represents the attitude
of large numbers of people who have never had anything
to do with Mr. Taft's League.

The possibilities of the flax industry are shown by

the deal states that the quality of the fiber was "almost
as good" as the Belgian-grown product. Here in Oregon
we can produce a flax fiber equal to, if not actually super
ior to any grown in any part of the world, and the straw
from three acres will yield a ton of fiber. The possibilities
for profit in flax growing may be seen in a study of these
