EARLY SESSIONS FOR CONGRESS.
Nearly everybody recognizes the absurdity of a sys
tem which postpones the assembling of congress until
thirteen months after election, and which therefore makes
it necessary to call an "extra session" at a time like this,
when there is a legislative emergency. There has long
been a demand for a change that would enable the nation
to get quicker action on an election and setting a new
congress to work before the impetus that chose it has
There is a measure now proposed to arcomplish this
reform. It would provide for the first meeting of a new
congress on March 5, following its election, instead of
waiting until the first Monday in December. Congress lt
fcflf has power to make the change, and it k expected that
it will be taken up soon in the special session that has just
It might be well to go still further. Why should any
congressman who is defeated early in November costinue
in office longer than the end of the year? And why
t-hould not the congressmen-elect assume their duties im
mediately after the Christmas holidays? The date of
the presidential inauguration might be changed likewise,
making everything start the first of the year. State gov
ernments have found this a good system why would it
not be equally good for the national government?

The Roosevelt highway is one of the largest develop
ment propositions ever submitted to the people of Oregon
for adoption or rejection. 1 It means a permanent road
along the coast from Oregon's northern boundary to the
California line and in its course it will traverse all our
coast counties, opening many valuoble districts to set
tlement and development. The effect of its construction
will be to increase the amount of taxable property in the
state by millions within the next few years, since lack of
roads and transportation facilities are now seriously
checking the advancement of the coast region. This high-1
way proposition should be given serious consideration be
cause of its important bearing upon the future growth of

DRY TIME DRINKS.
Sargeant York, the Church of God elder from Ten
nessee, who with his squad of seven men killed 00 Ger
mans, captured 122, including a major, along with )G ma
chine guns, was inclined to be a conscientious objector at
the beginning of the war. After thinking over the issues
involved, however, he girded on his armor and went over
the top with his rifle in one hand and an automatic in the
other. Now York says he feels "a heap stronger spirit
ually" which is more than those conscientious objectors
who are in jail can look one in the eye and say without
