MISS ROBERTSON'S REWARD.
Miss Alice Robertson, Congress
woman from Oklahoma, Is an ama
teur in politics. Miss Robertson,
as an official, has voted and spoken
according to tho dictates of her con
victions. Miss Robortson probably
will not bo rc-olocted.
This brief tale is not all to tho
bad. Other things being equal, she
might havo had a chanco of ro-eloc-tion.
But other things nro not
.equal. Miss Robortson rodo into con
gress from a normally Democratic
district jon tho Republican tidal
wavo by a precarious margin of 200
votes. If Republican enthusiasm
subsides in her district this year in
proportion as it will havo subsided
over tho rest of the country Miss
Robertson's lato majority, in the
normal course of things, will be
Nevertheless, Miss Robertson's do
fcat, if such it bo, will be defeat of
courage, tho courage of broad judg
ment "and independent action. She
has against her two class interests
that of the women voters' organi
zation and that of the bonus pro
ponents. Miss Robertson dared to bo the
representative of both sexes in Con
gress, notwithstanding that Bhc
was expected to bo first a woman
and second a Congressman. She
dared to oppose tho maternity bill,
not because her heart was not In the
cause of motherhood, but because
she preferred to support mother
hood without opposing principles
which she regarded as fundamental
to democracy. The penalty for this
npostasy is loss of the support of
the League of Women Voters.
The correspondent of the Post
Dispatch in Muskogee gives a brief
account of Miss Robertson's minis
trations to service men during the
war. Her home became a haven for
men in uniform and one or two chose
to be wedded in her library. But
she declined on principle to sub
scribe to tho cash bonus, with the
consequence that she has been wide
ly denounced by veterans' organi
zations. Such is the penalty meted out by
organized minorities to lawmakers
who, on principle, decline to do
their biddings. The regret In Mise
Robertson's case is that tho polit
ical alignment in her district will
not permit of an even fight. St

Tho great Ozark Mountain fruit
belt, which is ono of tho finest in
tho land, and in the crop of which
Memphis has a double interest, has
up to this timo a magnificent pros
pect for tho fruit crop this season.
It is from thero that Memphis gets
lior fruit at a reasonable prico it it
gets it at all on that'basls, and it is
the ono article of diet that the doc
tors recommend for keeping the sys
tem in fine shape. .Then the finan
ciers of the city are interested in
tho crop there, for a largo portion
of tho money from that crop comes
to Memphis in ono way or another.
Ono of tho largest orchard men up
thero is Louis Erb, for many years
a commission man on Front Street
in Memphis. Ho has some 75,000
apple, peach and pear trees of bear
ing age, and thero probably is not a
better observor up there than Mr.
Erb. For years ho has been an au
thority for tho outlook of that sec
tion. Early last season ho stated
that the crop for 1921 was ruined
and no fruit camo down out of the
mountains last season. Now Mr.
Erb writes Judgo A. B. Pittman,
whose wife was Miss Efflo Erb, and
who spends his summers on Mr.
Erb's domain at Cedar Gap, Mo.,
that the outlook for this crop is 'all
that could bo expected. Tho trees
are loaded with fruit buds and the
crop is not even normally advanced
for this season. That is one of the
good Bigns, for when the crop in
too far advanced early in tho sae
son it runs the risk of being killed
by even a normal cold snap. With
the crop late that danger is lessened.
For a generation tho Ozarks have
been famous for their fruit. The
soil contain the elements for
healthy growth in trees and the
fruit, and in addition to that tho
vast array of minerals in the soil
makes the fruit of that section sur:
pass that of any other part of the
world in its high coloring. Com

BOARD OF EQUALIZATION.
Tho County Board of Equaliza
tion has been in session since Mon
day of thlis week.
There is work for that func
tionary to perform, if it makes a
good job of its duties.
The present equalization, tho
work of its 1921 session, is most un
equalizing. It is so both in the
country and in the towns. Lots of
property Is valued for taxation far
.above what the owner could get for
it in cash. Pobsibly in a few, n
very few, instances, some is valued
Many people have paid and arc
duo to pay taxes on property that
was raised in 1921 without giving
notice by publication, ns tho law
What docs tho present Board of
Equalization propose to do about
this unlawful taxation It has caused
many to be called upon to pay?
Would it not be just and right to
refund tho diffcrenco in all such
raises of taxation?
What was the assessed valuation
of Pemiscot county property in 1920
when property was assessed at 50
per cent 'of its valuation?
Wo havo been Informed upon what
SHOULD be reliable authority that
it was $7,000,000.00. Is that cor
rect? If so, why, when tho law was
passed to increase the valuation to
100 per cent, was it raised to
$22,000,000.00? Why, if property
was to bo raised 50 per cent, should
It havo been trebled?
Tho Missouri Herald is published
in tho interest of tho people of Pem
iscot county and It is in their in
terest these questions nro asked.
If nnyono can supply this infor
mation wo shall bo glad to publish
It. All wo want is an understand

misstatements. Wo do not want to
do anyone nn injustice. But the
taxpayers of Pemiscot coitrify nro
