la spite of Interference by officials
and socialistic organizations tho fight
for t;ix reduction In Oregon goes on.
The State Tax Reduction convention
was jumped upon ns nn occasion to
prmuite a state Income tax.
A committee of three was named to
select a committee of seven to prepare
'keen a sense of Justice and duty under
the law to permit a carefully planned
demonstration to determine his course
of action. Instead of putting the Pres
dent In an embarrassing position before-the
country, the propagandists
have merely given him one more op
portunity to prove lit? fitness for the
hlsh alike he occupies, i'.y refusing
to be brow-beaten, Mr. Harding has
won the confidence of the country in
an increased desree.
' INVISIBLY PRESENT
A'Moscow publication says the Un
ited Stateg is "invisibly present" at
Genoa. So far as the United States
is a subject for speculation by the
delegates as to what they would like
to get out of us In the way of loans
and other favors that may be true.
Thanks to the wise decision of Presi
dent Harding, the United States is
Hot going to suffer damages from Ge
noa any more substantial than the
"presence" the Moscow correspondent
thinks he discerns.

through tlie timbered reserves and
the private forests?
That the government's persistent
campaign of education is having a
beneficial effect iu reducing the firs
loss is shown by the fact that In 1921
a considerable reduction was made
over the proceeding year but there
is still room for Improvement..
Kvery camper or traveler who goes
into the forests Is charged with his
share of the duty of protecting them.
See that campfires are extinguished,
be careful about dropping ' lighted
matches, and do not throw away
burning cirarette stubs or cigar.
If every ind'vldual will see to takine
care of this himself, about fltiy per
cent of tho Are loss can be eliminated.

a state income tax would drive capital
out of the state and prevent asw cap

CANT STAMPEDE HARDING "
Some clever propagandists organized
"children's crusade" for the purpose
of inducing President Harding to
grant a general pardon to men convict
fed of Interfering with the prosecution
of the war. The children, of.couqsg,
had nothing to do with it, except as
they were directed by the managers,
who financed the trip, prepared the
tanners and staged all the proceed
ings. Knowing that the "crusade" was
wholly the work of agitators who had
no direct interest In the prisoners but
wish to establfeh tho principle of free:
dom to oppose the government in time
of war, President Harding refused to
receive the crowd. Extreme radicals
in all parts of the country are now,
endeavoring to create prejudice
against M!r. Tlardlnj by deolarlng that
lie refused to receive the petitions of
children for the pardon of their par-1

PERSHING IS RIGHT

'could have prevented the world war

but when we remember Mr. Wilson's
vacillations towards Mexico, his pacif

paredness there Is no wonder that the
kaiser thought this country would
never go to war and that he could
