THE ONTABIO ABGrUS, ONTARIO, OREGON, THURSDAY JUNE 1, 1922.
- - '- - -. . . . .. U GDutana Kxm County Official Taper An Independent Newspaper Published Thursdays at Ontario, Orogon, and entered at the Ontario post office for distribution as 2nd class matter. O. K. Aiken, Managing Editor SUBSCRIPTION One Year, S2.00 OREGON UOVS AND GIULS AUK AMBITIOUS Orogon today Is manifesting tlio highest degreo of cducatlonl pro grees of any any state In the Union. This means that In time Oregon, If it Is not now, will bo the best edu cated commonwealth In the United States, Judging by1 the figures re vealed In the recent census taken of tho educational Institutions of high er learning in this stato. According to tho review of educa tion in Oregon by Dr. George F. Zook, specialist In higher education of tho bureau of education of the fodoral government, there Is one Orogon studont In college for ovory 112 rosldonts of tho state, a pro portion of studonts to population, higher than any other state In the Union. This slmplo statement of fact Im plies much. It Is an evidence of commondablo ambition on thepart of tho young pooplo of tho stato. It Is an ovldonco of sympathy on thq' part of their parents for their am bition for tho showing could not bo so great wero tho parents not will ing to assist their sons and daugh ters In their offorts to securo a col lego education. But thoro is another side to tho question, too. This slmplo state ment also accounts, In a degrco at loast, for tho cost to taxpayors, of tho stato maintained Institutions of hlghor loarnlng, one of tho largost ltoms of governmental costs. Yet how can this bo avoided, If wo arcs to maintain tho theory that It Is tho duty of tho stato to editcato Its cltl zons; and how can we abandon that practlco without at tho same time declaring that our present civiliza tion must bo abandonod, too? Another Interesting sidelight evi denced In Dr. Zook's report is the showing concerning Normal schools for tho training of teachors. In this rospect Orogon Is lamentably weak, and that porhaps accounts for tho oxcopttonal showing of col logos and unvorslties, for many of tho stu donts who now go to tho colleges and universities would undoubtedly bo registered in Normal schools If It woro possible for thorn to enter. Oregon has only ono Normal school, that at Monmouth, and this institu tion Is too small to enro for tho noeds of tho stato. It appears that Oregon's system is somewhat top heavy. It is run ning too stiong for higher educa tion and not providing for teachers for the common schools. While othor states with sufficient Normal capacity to train teachers can re quire Normal diplomas as a require ment for teaching in tho stato Oro gon can not. While Dr. Zook does not say so It is evident that Oregon might do well to consider diverting some of tho funds used for 0. A. C. and tho University to th'o establishment of at least one moro Normal school. This would broaden the educational system at the base, and It is there that It needs strengthening. A COUBECTION In last week's Argus in tho edi torial discussion of tho truth about the road map, the statement was mado that at tho Vale meeting where the highway bond Issue was apportioned, $50,000 originally was proposed for co-operation between Cairo and Ontario. This should have read ?G,000. The mistake was made In setting tho type. OREGON IN TUB 1'UBUO KYK The recent election served to place Oregon In tho public oyo In a manner not complimentary to tho state. In fact that tho Issue of tho campaign was a religious one" served to tell tho world that hero In Oregon tho pooplo havo fgrgottcn that tho Ambrlcan govornmont was founded on tho principal of religious free dom. However, tho result with the do feat of the Ku Klux Klan candidate for governor has served to remove part of tho stigma placed on tho state, and when the present wave of sentiment dies, as It will, tho cam paign will bo forgottun. Such campaigns como periodically in ovcry land. It Is reasonable to ascribe such a campaign to the re cession of Ideals following the- war. Naturo tends to keep an equllbrlum. During tho war tho spirit of altru Ism roso to heights unknown in this generation. Peoplo gavo freely to war work and war bonefactlons. Thoy woro generous and kind to their fellowman, outside of the zone of war. Thoy lived beyond their normal attltudo toward their follow men. Men of every faith worked togothor in Rod Cross and Liberty Loan drives and asked no questions. This was not tho natural ordor of llfo. Against this, with tho need for gonoroslty less evident and pressing camo a reaction, which In a natural way took tho othor oxtremo until now wo aro below tho average, gen erally speaking, In our attitude to ward mankind and our neighbors In particular. Just as wo as a peoplo swung up ward under tho stress of war, and havo swung downward In this reac tion, so too will wo as normal human beings, with all tho limitations of JWt fna $dbm ill .rmw ik i - t m '! .- irn ' aj "fc ill LtfcL fallible man, follow tho law of na ture, and go up again to tho normal level of social relations and toler ance toward those who do not hap pen to vlow the mystery of tho unl verso as we vlow it, and who in the exercise of tholr inalllenable rlgM worship their Ood, and ours, ac cording to tho dictates of their con science. Viewing tho matter In this light, therefore, though regretting the present trend of events as manifest ed In the past campaign, we believe there is no need for serious alarm concerning the ultimate action of tho peoplo of Oregon. Tolerance and fair dealing between man and man will assert itself as the prevailing sentiment of tho people and the passing clouds of bigotry and intol erance will fade like mist before the noonday sun. TUB INUNDATION OF BUSINESS It Is not tho big financier who Is tho foundation of business. It Js not the professional man who is- the stabilizing influence in the' realm of affairs. It Is not the laborer or the farmers or the business men as a class who give to others faith to pro ceed with the buzzards of every day business transactions. But It is tho Individuals in each of these ag gregations of human endeavor, the average man who pays his bills, whoso word is as good as his bond, who never contracts a debt without providing a way to pay, who is the foundation of business as it is bper ated today. What Is truo of ordinary busi ness Is true of larger fields. The troublo with the world today Is lack of faith. Men in the big games of the world, now tho big Inter national operations which involve largo expenlltures in other lands than ours cannot proceed. They do not know when, if ever, their foreign customers can pay. You Save Big Repair Costs by painting now A STOKV FOUK THOUSAND YEARS OLD Prom the days of tho Pyramids to tho present Is a long period of time, yet in those days as at pres ent, paints were used for beautify ing and preserving tho objects which thoy covered. In the old days paint was used as a decorative ma terial for tho mummy cases. Today it is used to conserve the natural and converted resources of the country. Painting one's building is not an expense. It is an investment. It absolutely Insures against depreci ation and rotting. It Is tho only form of lnsuranco that can be guar anteed to perform Its duty 100. Paints havo been high during tho last few years, but are now down to normal basis. It would seem to be economy to paint now. Tho Dutch havo an old proverb which says "Good paint costs nothing, for ' It saves moro than Its costs." Thoro aro many brands of paint on tho market and to tho consumer all paints look alike. It is only whontho paint has been applied to a building, for four or fivo years that, tho equality Is demonstrated. It is too late to regret ones action of a poor choice of paint. It is well to buy tho advertised lines. Whllo wo aro not mentioning any brand in particular, a perusual of our adver tisements will lndicato tho leaning of tho editorial chair. YOU can't escape. Either you paint your home when it needs it or you spend from five to ten times as much rebuilding what has rotted away for lack of paint protection. Painting costs so littlo com pared to tho service of saving it renders, that failure to paint is utter extravagance. Painting it economy and an addi tional economy it found in using the best paint. It pread easily mvc labor cost. It covets more area per gallon than "cheap" paint. But most important, the best paint serves fvte or more eara longer than "cheap'' paint. It assures better re sults at a lower cost in the long run. We hare been nuking the best paints for 73 years to meet the weather conditions In the Weil.
