Tho momory of tho great work Which Theodora Itoosovott did, of tho llfo ho led und tho Ideals ho held hoforo tho American pcoplo Is the common horltogo of us all. Ills life will for all tlmo ho an Inspiration to tho youth or tho hind. It Ik for that reason that n fitting and ndequnto memorial Is to ho erected at Wash ington nnd perhaps at Sngamoro I f 111 Tho progress of a nation Is hut the progress of its leaders, and thu holghlH to which their oxamplo lead tho people who conio after thorn. Kvory nation hns Its horoos nnd tho Inspiration which they glvo Is beyond human ostlmnto. Wlint Amorlcnn Is thero who has over vlawed tho stntuwi of Lincoln, mid there viewed tlio noblo grii'iduor of tho iiiuii who has not boon Inspired to think of tho lofty Ideals for which ho stood? Is not oven tho plcturo of that grout wlilto marble shaft at Washington erected to honor tho Tather of Our country it symbol of tho purity of his diameter and heights ho sought to attain for tho American people? Among nil tho nations tho custom of raising memorials to their loaders hail boon followed. Aiming duinoo rarltM It Is practically tho only man nur In whluh thu senium of such men may bo recognized. A memorial to Itoohovolt will ap peal particularly to tho people of tho West. Ilo was ouo of them and luaulfosted u deep concern In tho development of this region. Thu grout dam uoar I'hoeulx which Im pounds tho water for thu Irrigation of Arlxonu'ri plains lx a monument to his artlvo Interest In tho reclama tion of tli two mountain status, Hut tho greatest sorvlcu that Then (lorn Itoosovolt performed for Amor ton was his upstanding Americanism during tlio trying days Just prior to and Immediately following our entry Into tho world war. Ills attitude and his tittornncos cleared tho cloud ed skteH and innilo clear und plain tho path of national duty. For him tlioro was no double ulloglanro. no two standards of cltUonshlp, no two Hag. Ills creed and his faith was pronounced In a sentence that should he known to tnury American when lit) said: "Ouo Hag, tho American Hug; ouo language, tho language of tho Decla ration of Independence; ouo loyalty, loyalty to tho American people " Well Indeed may tho American pcoplo honor suoh u man Thu spirit in whluh his memory is held will hu manlfoHt by the rospousu accorded to thu appeal for memorial funds next week. Theru Is no doubt of tho out co mo. HIIIITINO STANDAItDH There Is n renson for tho apparent ly fnl I tiro to get nctlon lu Ontario homo building plans, but tho situa tion Is adjusting Itself nnd good VIII ultimately conio out of tho ngltntlnn Hint ban delayed progress. Without analysing their Ideas and uuconslous of any doslro to bo un fair to tho lumber donlors tlioso who aro planning on building hnvo In mind tho kind of a liousa they want, nnd whnt thoy wnnt to pay for It. It Is perhaps truo that many of them wnnt a houso that used to roU from $2,G00 to 13.000 to build beforo tho war. They havo that Ideal In their mind nnd wish tu nttnln It. Hut whon thoy hnvo started to get prices for mich a liotiso today they find that tho cost Is anywhere from $3, COO to $11,000 for that typo of structure. Tho result Is n shock. Thoy think someone Is profiteering at their ex- ponso, and tho feeling Is a natural ono. It Is tho same feeling that ovoryono had whon thoy Ktnrtcd pay ing $7l0 for a ffi.00 shoo, or I If. for a $30 suit. Hut wo havo becoiuol accustomed to tho latter. Wo have J recovered from tho shock. Tho fart that shoes and clothing nro high Is an ncccptod fact and tho public is acting according buying what It needs and not complaining. Tho Argus has no deslro to hold a brief for tho lumber and material men. They can fight their own battle. Thcio observations aro mndo In a snlrlt of fairness to all concornod- -t r 'iinn rhn builds nnd tho man who sol'i Wo, nil of us hnvo to rorn'jnlrn that n now high level In price hns been rcnrhetl, In lumber as well as merchandise Wo can not bellavo that tho On tario lumber dealers- aro worse than tho lumber dealers of our neighbor ing towns. In fact thoy aro In many onsos tho wiiiio people. Thoy ask that tholr prices bo Investigated. Thoy nirreo to moot any oulsldo price. What moro can nnyono nsk Ah huslnosrf men It Is hardly con sistent for Ontario to usk Its rotall lumbor men to soil at wholesale prices. Thill can not bo ilono long Thu retail yards sorvo a purpose Thoy keep stock hero tho year round for tho trndo nnd now that a demand for building has come they nro cer tainly entitled to II rut consideration whon thoy nro fair ns wo holloo thoy aro. If they nro not fair that Is a different question and they should bo treated accordingly. In tho moan time tho discussion of tho situation will do no harm nnd tho moro tho people get familiar with tho facts tho bettor will bo tho fuel ing nil round. I, W. W., tho parlor Holshovlt would do Just that. What would that mean to tho men nnd women of America? Who Is Micro that wants this great nation to ho turned over to tho Irresponsible hands of tho ills slplcrt of Lcnlno and Trotsky? Who wants to liao repeated hero tho crlmo of Hussla? To prevent such a cntnstraphy, loyal Americans must organize. Thoy must present tholr views so em phatically that radicals will desist. Men who preach Ilolshcvlsm must ha mndo to understand Hint they aro not wctcomo hero nnd that If this country docs' not suit them they must get out. Tho American Legion has taken up the fight for Americanism. In Astoria tho Legion hns squelched tho Hods of that town. Thoy hnvo tak en up tho fight of mnklng tlicfnrclgn langunrgo papers print translations of tholr product, nnd thus nro getting nt tho most flagrant of tho propa ganda mothodrt of tho Ilolshovlsts. Tlio Legion Is entitled to tho support of ovory good American, nnd every good Amorclnn community needs tho help of tho Legion. It Is to bo hop ed that tho servlco men from Ontario will speedily nllgn themselves with this grant movement. Professional Cards nt. w. (i. nown DENTIST Tel. 117 Ontario, Oro.
