ALASKA WANTS NO TRUSTEE
Secretary Payne is quoted as saying
that the government will make Seat
tle the “trustee for Alaska.” That
probably was not meant to he taken
literally. It was metaphor rather
than plain statement. At any rate
Alaska wants no “trustee.” What
the territory wants is opportunity to
develop. And it is fair to say here,
notwithstanding the presence in Seat
tle most of the time of a lot of
politicians who would delight in
serving as trustee for the people of
this territory, the real Seattle does
not want to be “trustee" to Alaska.
What Alaska needs of Seattle, and
what the real Seattle is trying to
do for Alaska, is for that city to
serve in the capacity of a big broth
er rather than as a trustee or a
guardian. We want Seattle to help
us fight our battles with congress
and for recognition in the world of
trade and industry and finance. We
want Seattle's aid in getting capital
to use in development, and we prom
ise her all who give such ample pro
tection and generous returns.
POSSIBILITIES OF THE TOURIST
TRADE
The statment that the tourist trade
has been worth $20,000,000 to British
Columbia this year conveys a lesson
that Alaskans and American trans
portation companies should learn.
British Columbia is a wonderful
country, and posesses appealing at
tractions for tourists. Yet Alaska’s
scenic grandeur and beauty is even
greater. If Alaska had transportation
facilities and accomodations that
were equal to those of British Col
umbia the tourist trade would be
worth as much to this territory as
it is to the Canadian province.
There is no line of business that
produces better profits than that of
catering to tourists. It was through
the tourist business more than any-1
thing else that Southern California !
was developed, and it contributed j
largely to the rapid growth and de-1
velopment of Florida. It has done j
even more for large sections of
Europe, and the summer tourist trade
usually is greater than that of win
ter. ,
Twenty million dollars is a large
sum of money. There has been but
one or two years in the history of
Alaska when the gold output reached
this amount. Such a traffic is worth
going after, and going after strong.
Give Alaska adequate transportation
facilities and accommodations for
those who would come here, and
another industry will ha<ve been add
ed that will take rank with our fish
ing, mining and paper and pulp.
i ECONOMY OF TIME
President Kerr of Oregon Agricul
tural college did well to emphasize,
in his address to the student body,
the old fashioned virtue of economy,
and he scored an additional point
in suggesting that there may be
thrift in the expenditure of time as
well as money.
It is one of the minor tragedies
of life, however, that youth in gen
eral is inclined to learn its own les
sons in its own way. Experience
continues in its capacity of teacher
to be as dear as the copy book
maxim represents it to be, and peo
ple continue, as Benjamin Franklin
once said, to refuse to learn in any
other scrool. The waste, or other
wise, of money by the young men
and women just entering their col
lege years will be a matter of small
concern by comparison with the dis
position they make of their time; a
relatively small waste of money can
be atoned for by a later accession
of energy, while wasted time in col
lege days will not be recouped be
cause it is then that the mind is most
plastic and best able to receive im
pressions of lasting value, and to
form habits that, will persist through
life.
It is probably not too much to say
that if the colleges taught nothing
else than the value of time they
would justify their existence and be
worth ail they cost. Who is there
among the inefficient and ambitious
who does not envy the leaders among
us who, although always busy, never
theless can find time for one nnre
task? And who is there who, on
reading the biography of a successful
man, is not struck with the circum
stance that time thrift has hulked
largely in the story of his life?-Ore
gonian.
A world congress of Quakers has
I declared against the League of Na
oitns without reservations, insisted
on by the American delegates, that
I would safeguard our sovereignty.
And (here is no one who will accuse
the Quakers of trying to forestall
peace.
A man in New York with his heart
on the right side is causing wonder
among the doctors, who say there
is a big difference between the right
side and the right place.
"High prices dull and depressed in ;
all sections.” says a market page
headline. One doesn'-t--notice much j
depression when he goes to buy a
pair of shoes.
If the proper sphere of woman is
the home, the anti-suffragists now
have nothing to interfere with their
returning there.
Acquisition of land by California
Japanese deserves to be called an
infant industry.
THINGS WE THINK
Things Others Think and What Wf
Think of the Things Others Think.

Good luck is for the industrious.
A man without ambition is of little
use to anyone for anything.
Some folks are so suspicious that
they are not even sure of themselves.
The perpetual grouch is almost as
| much of a burden to himself as he is
to others.
Some men work to earn a living
for those who are always giving good
advice.
Sometimes a man’s creditors pro
vide the motive power that gains
for him the reputation of being a
person of unusual activity.

BREAKING AWAY FROM HABIT
Habit, the stern taskmaster, makes women old before their
time. Because of habit, we all do work that could be done as well
and as cheaply by others.
Many woman have their washing done at home because of
habit the old tradition that it can be done better and more cheaply
than,in a modern laundry.
But facts are not in accord with this old belief. The scientific
manner in which clothes are now washed and sterilized in a mod
ern laundry such as ours, not only produces superior work, but
actually saves you money when time, material and fuel are con
sidered.
Every week, more women are deciding that "Sending it to
Jones” is the efficient way—breaking away from the old habit
of home washing, with its attendant backaches, worry and slush,
and now devoting this time to reading, walking, shopping or sew
ing.
