We are inclined to believe that
many Benton county people will
heed the advice of A. S. Goss, form
er resident in this community. Mr.
Goss, was head of the state grange,
then became one of the nation’s
most practical and foresighted auth
orities on farm problems, and form
er land bank commissioner in the
Roosevelt administration. Mr. Goss
bitterly opposes the New Deal “scar
city” program as a relief measure
for agriculture. He says he puts
issues above men when concerning
himself with politics and advocates
the election or Wilkle, McNary, and
Stephen Chadwick. Those who are
acquainted wiht Mr. Goss have
confidence in his integrity and his
judgment, and of his absorbing in-‘
terest in the welfare of agriculture;
We’re surprised at the apparent
lack of interest in the initiatives and
referendum measures to be voted
upon along with the state and na
tional officers.
The first initiative measure on
the ballot is the PUD bill, No. 139.
Proponents of the measure declare
that some such limitation should
be placed upon the directors to pre
vent the passage of bond issues
which become a lien upon the-prop
erty within the district. They claim
that whether the issue is a general
obligation or a revenue bond, in the
end the property would be called
upon for repayment. Opponents of
the measure state that its adoption 1
would hamstring the work of the
PUD’s and make it impossible to
Initiative No. 141, the pension bill,
has received but little attention in
most quarters. Proponents claim
that the state should pay all per
sons, regardless of their financial
status a minimum of S4O per month,
eliminating snoopers, the “pauper’s
oath" and other objectionable fea
tures. Opponents say' that the bill
provides no method of raising the
money, a greatly increased budget
being required, and that it would
eliminate the possibility of securing
federal matching dollars, as now op
erating. Surprising little interest,
locally at least, is being shown in
this measure.
Referendum Bill No. 5, is the re- '
enactment of the 40-mill tax limit
bill. This bill has been passed over
whelmingly in the past and no
doubt will be endorsed again. No
opposition has developed anywhere
111—the state as far 113—can be'learn
Three amendments to the state
constitution are also to be voted
upon. The first is asking the re
moval of the statute of limitation on
county and state officers. They
are now limited to two consecutive
terms in office. Pmponents, of
course, are largely present officials
' who want to stay. Opponents claim
two terms is enough without a re- ‘
cess at least. i
The second amendment is one!
removing the pay limitation of state ‘
officials. It has one little joker
which might escape the casual eye
of the voter. Undoubtedly some of
the state officers should have their
pay raised, and in our opinion (if
anyone should ask) so should the
pay of the legislators be increased.
' Twice, at least. a bill asking for
this has been turned down.
Under the present law legislators'
are paid $5 per day for the 60 days
the legislature is in session in al
ternate years, limiting the pay to
S3OO. The new bill provides that
legislators shall not be paid more‘
than SSO per month—but the job‘
is for two years! 1
These measures are important and {
will affect the conduct of the busi- i
new of the state. Every voter ‘
should became familiar with them ‘
Mark M. Moulton
Candidate For
before going to the polls next Tues
' The time is ripe when all good
citizens of this land, troop to the
neighborhood voting booths to put
their x to make a choice. We have
listened to a. lot of speeches and
read a, lot of items that have help
ed us formulate our opinions. We
have heard both sides in an effort to
be fair. Now we are going to be hon
est and sincere in our individual
ways by going to the polls and vot
ing as we consider right. They may
tell us we are headed for destruc
tion and dictatorship, they may say
‘we are oppressed and lawbound, but
[as long as we can trod down the
;road to our voting booth without a 3
gun at our back, to speak our piece,
then we can still give thanks for this ‘
American privilege even though 40
percent of American voters didn’t
exercise this right during the last
presidential election!
The young men, recently con
scripted, undergo numerous tests,
mental and physical, as well as an
swering many questions covering
their personal histories, character,
background. When our country en
tered the World War and put the
young men into military service,
psychologists of that day reported
the average American was about 14
years old, mentally. We suffered in
silence, each of us feeling this to be
an insult but couldn’t actually prove
the learned men to be in error. Re
cently, when 1400 scientists of the
mind, met in consultation :in the
least, they agreed there must be a
new yardstick to measure the mind
,of today‘s young men. They are go
ing to take a. fellow‘s temperament ‘
into consideration. He may be smart j
and yet be a failure in life. It is en
oouraging to know that you don’t
have to be an intellectual in order
to be intelligent.
I We believe that in addition to
building up a strong army and a
strong navy in the country we
should also build up a strong pub
lic feeling against foreign isms that
like a dry rot demoralize us from
‘within and'sap the life that makes
us strong. Wheher we are ever
called to go to war with a toe from
lwithout, we will be called upon to
go to war against the organizations
rand groups and the individuals who
have always been sniping at the
government. We are going to make
ourselves a force to be reckoned
with in a military sense among the
nations of the world. Let us also
make the conscience of the people
of the United States for their form
of government, a thing to be reck
oned with by every "traitorous
sniper within our borders.
In the good old days a. man used
to stop to think before he bought a
thing whether he had the monEy to
pay for it. NoWadays he does not
even stop to figure whether or not
he has the money 'to make the down
payment. .
We permit a lot of foreign isms to
flourish in the country under the
theory that this is a. democracy and
as such should permit to everyone
The House of Good Bread
Folks who pass by the house where we bake our
bread invariably take a good, long sniff. And
well they may. For the atmosphere is laden
with the rich, tantalizing smell of freshly baked
bread. The taste doesn’t let you down, either. It
lives up to the fragrant promise. As for its
goodness! Just ask the mothers who give it to
their children. Better hurry in for your loaf

the fullest of liberty as long as act
ual violence is not indulged in. Our
guess is that if this country should
become involved in war we are go
ing to forget a lot of these ideas
about the broad extent of personal
liberty and handle some of our false
citizens in the manner that they
have long deserved.
The only indispensible man in the
country is the taxpayer and his kind
