COUNTY OFFICIAL PAPER
"I pledge allegiance to my Flag,
and to the Republic for which it

Liberty and Justice for All."
PERMANENT ROADS ARE IXEVIT

haul his produce to market without
making a day's job of it; the road
that will bring the tourist travel to
our state; the road that will develop
Oregon as nothing else will develop
it is the permanertly improved
road. We must educate the people
to the truth of this. We must show
them that it is time for Oregon to
come forward with a comprehensive
system of state highways a system
that will Include all our main market
routes. All of our roads expend!-
tures from now on should be made
on the basis that tho main roads
must be hard-surfaced, if not right
now, then iu the very near future,
The time is past wheu we should
consider the advisability of paving
our main roads if we have to con-
sider motorized transportation. F.

TODAY IS THE FOUNDATION' OF
Everyone should start with a pur-
pose in life. Our destiny we may not
know, but we can do the best we
can at the moment we are doing it.
Life is not based on tomorrow, but
on today. We are advanced by to
day's work. Yesterday is the foun
dation of today, and today is the
foundation of tomorrow
make progress by today's work, or
we step back. In the exercise of
encrby and purpose to make progress
today is the key of the fouudution
of business character.
A HUMANE ORGANIZATION
The American Red Star will take
its place beside the American Red
Cross in humane work on the bat
tlefields of Europe if the plans of a
newly organized society go through.
The Red Star Society proposes to
alleviate the sufferings of horses,
dogs and mules which are engaged
In dangerous work. An organization
similar to the Red Star is said to
have saved 105,000 out of 150,000
-wounded horses In Europe.
TIME FOR OREGON TO MAKE A
Tho time haa come for Oregon to
make a start in the direction of per
manent state highway construction.
Washington, to the north, will spend
$6,500,000 ln the next two years.
j . . '
and Oregon proposes to expend $6,-
000,000 In five years.
California In the second biennial
fu.( munou ...
two years by the state and the coun-
ties as much more.
indications are tnat conservative
counties are awakening to the need
of getting out of the mud and dust
by the state as a whole.
We have received a copy of the
most useful and handy little volume j
of 4 8 pages. Booklet 272 "Roster of
the Slrty-Fifth Congress of the
United States," published by the J
American Protective Tariff League, '
New York, and mailed with the com-1
Dliments of the league to all of its
connections. The roster is a convenl-
ence which should be on every man's
desk. It contains a full list of the
senators and representatives of the
Sixty-Fifth Congress and the congres-
sional tariff committees. The large
number of letters from congressmen
and business men expressing una
bated interest in protection as the
right American policy ln peace or in
war are very Interesting.
Every voter ln Columbia and Clat-,
nop county should vote yes for the 1
bonds. The first piece of work to be
5 one will be in these counties. We
can lose nothing, but we will gain
much. Vote yes, and help pull Ore
gon out ot the mud.
1 SPENCE AXO THE 1UXI) ISSl'K
: C. E. Spence, master of the Stat
Grange, in a long article to tlievOre
gonian, gives as one of the reasons
why the $6,000,000 road bond issue
should not pass that
S Benson be- i
lloves that "vVarrcnlte Is a 'perfect I
paving' and said so at Forest Grove i
. in a public meeting."

does- A trP over tl,e "lunn' "'Kn

' is perfect. However. Mr. Benson, to !
'r knowledge has not said there

ll IS quite
apparent that he is endeavoring to
make the granges his own political
party, and the fact that many granges
have gone on record as favoring the
bonds is a repudiation of Mr. Spence
end his political game.
THE CALL IS SOUNDED
The president's proclamation of a
day when the young
manhood of the country shall enroll
Itself for wartime service has been
Issued. "It is not an army we must
and dark, the young men are to step
forward and offer themselves, each
for the work he can best psrform.
It will be a day the like of whir!,
the world has never seen, and will
show our enemies that we are a peo-
pie who will not hang back when
our duty is made plain.
The selective conscription plan is
indeed a most wise plan; there can
be no individual preference. The
man whose services will count heavi-
est on the battlefield will be sent to
the fighting front, and the mechanic.
engineer and professional man will
be assigned to some duty wherein
he will aid the nation, and the man
behind the plow will join the colors
In some industrial role.
"The whole nation," says the presi- j
dent, "must be a team in which each j
man shall play the part tor which he
is best fitted."
Ready to play their part, the young
manhood of Columbia county will of
fer themselves on June 5. There will
be n0 laggards.
