SUBSCRIPTIONS One Year jlLW WHAT IS AMERICANISM? It is hard to pick up a newspaper tins. days wit h reading of a general strike" thai is threatened for some city, either here of abroad. Thai which has centered the Inter ests of the people of this section of enure fl the OUtbuni in Seattle. What does this all mean I Is the ttmv tnre of American Instritutionn hreakin down f These are sonic of the quest ion -that sober-minded citizens are asking them Helves. Out here in the oen of mi auricult lira I and thoroiv American community, for from industrial activity, it is hard to believe thai any great number of Americans will be swept off their feel by the teachings of Bol- shevism, orother foreign political nostrum - Hut it is time to awaken to the fad thai W( an people have been trifling too long wit ! our vaunted security and If we wish to rc serve our Representative government thai we be prepared to tiuht its enemies here at home. Bolshevism Is class movement, an anarchist movement, it is socialism carried to its logical conclusion, the annihilatoii of government by law. The tanner who toda.i denounces the acts of the Seattle Bolshevist lead by Rikowskv who threaten to take over industries of that great city, are merely o trig U) step farther than that proposed llj Twonley and his Ndii Part i an leaders. The only difference is in the methods employed, At the same time business and profes mono! men, who have stood idly by and per inittcd unfair tactics to be eiuplov ed toward the farmer or the laboring man, who have permitted eonsienceless politicann to run the affairs of state had better awaken to the fa.i thai such conditions an- responsible in par; for the troubles that are now disturbing the peaee and prosperity of this country. This is representative government. The essence of Americanism Is a square deal, and an e(iial opportunity before the law fo every man to achieve our basic ideal of Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. If this ideal is worth anything, it i worth protecting, And if it is worth pr , tecting it is worthy of the unwavering sup port of every citizen. ' '. THE ONTARIO CADETS. The members of the High School lade! company received generous praise from the Colonel John Leader following his review of their maneuvers last Friday afternoon. Tht hoys will undoubtedly iheerish his words of approbation, and strive to merit further ap proval in years to come. Among the other sentiments which tin Colonel admirably expressed was this, on which even citisen ma well pender: "With teli cojiipaies like this that I have watched today, I would gladly receive the Bolshevik! from Seattle should they attempt to march on Oregon." At another juncture in his address to the cadets oloiiel Leader Midi "I am pleased to say to you that this i . the best drilled Hiiih School coninam thai Hi has been ni privilege to inspect. Volt have a high duty to perform, then' can hi none higher than that a man he trained and willing to protect the government of the American people." These words coming form one who ha - given a quarter of a centnrj to soldiering in many lands and has served in helping Ore uoii perform a noble part in the world war, in which he early gave his all until wounds incapacitated him, should be indeed a sonic of joy to the oung men of the company and a cause fur pride on the coniinunitv which has long taken pride in the cadet company, THE JOYS OF THE COUNCIL. Ontairo' s City Council will uol loiter al many of its sessions If it solves all the prob lenis which arc before it at the present time, and others thai arc bound to arise before every meeting. Aside from the water problem which is a job in itself, the 1 1 y government is far d with the realization that to collect the dog taxes, to compel indilTeVeiit citizens to keep their lots and alleys clean, to enforce the regulations in other respects, and incidental ly to combat the emboldened boot legger, i a program that will tax its constructive statesmanship, as well as its financial re sources. While the council realizes that it lias n hard .job before it there is no faltering in tackling the problem, and that is half of tic battle itself. It is the temporsing with con ditions by many city governments that maki enforcement of regulations hard. Once tin public realizes that a city adniiinstia tioll means business, and is playing no favor ites there is a general compliance with n ;t ouablc regulations. iHlllliiifllffffflAffiJII Kii. yr i m m i r.... i wmm PARENT-TEACHERS' COLUMN t UVroriM 1.1, Uf h-J ttoiwlu ""ALK about smokes.

He had learned earlv in life that the hank could help him in nianv ways and the hanker learned that this young man was a sticker and could be de pended upon. In fact each had learned to stay by the other. Young men, there is a lesson n this for you. Start now doing row husiness thru a good bank like ours. Stav by us and we will stav by v.,u.
