CHAMP'S SHOTGUN RACE NSWERING his constitu ents who urged him to vote for the selective draft bill.

He is one of car political idols and after the lesident as popular a man as Urere is in the country. But would that be the way point there are. thousands of men in this countfy better fit ted than he to wear the stars to whieh,the colonel aspires. At a time when congress is extremely busy with serious legislation pertaining to the war it is unfortunate that friends of Roosevelt should make themselves a distrubing element by trying to get him a high army commission through special legislation based on political considerations rather J than military merit. ! If all our celebrities should follow the colonel's example we would have turmoil indeed end the kaiser : would have grounds for regarding demo cracy as a joke. IT ALL DEPENDS 3- EN SHELDON, member' J of the legislature from Jackson county and a former live wire community worker at Medford has been made editor of the Daily Rogue River Courier at Grants Pass. In his initial effort Mr. Sheldon says of a newspaper's obligations to the public : "In its performance of a quasi public function, a newspaper owes it to the public to furnish to the ex tent of its capacity and i information the news facts simply, clearly and fairly stated. It has no right to suppress legiti- , mate news items nor to color them." ! The idea is correct and if the best running he has done in his life. The people of "Missouri, however, will be satisfied if his constituents will run him out of congress, where the na tion's crisis has exposed his unfitness to lead anything but a shotgun race or a "guff" gabfestj St. Louis Post-Dispatch. Men like Bryan, Roosevelt and Borah, can, if they will, accomplish more good on the platform in this country than by try'"? to swing sabres in Europe; let them all volunteer loo I? -.- n n AlA fr,e nmvl in ntil- capacity where they may be needed. -a If the submarine menace is as great as depicted yesterday then it would seem that the elimination of the U-boat is a step to be taken before a very large American army is sent to Europe.
