LITSCHERT ii I ill It has been the favorite method o PRESENTS PROGRAM lhc program given by the Junior Endeavor society, Sunday evening i was well received. Much of the Loy- al Te:nperance Work was exempli- fied. Two Bibles were presented to attack by the professional pacifist, members for learning all the books ho would disarm the United States lo f the Bible. in what he claims is the interest of j The program follows: , 1 world peace, to charge that those Mrs. Mabel Pendleton in charge of sound Americans who are seeking to the work read for the opening: "The make the United States a militaristic l Lord Is In His Holy Temple, Let nation. Nothing could be further AlI the Earth Keep Silent Before from the truth, and it is coming to be pretty generally recognized that the real sound, constructive pacifist, who would keep Uncle Sam at peace with the world is the man or woman who believes in adequate prepared- ness for defense. The assertion of George Washington that the best way to assure peace is to be prepared for attack was never truer than today. An illustration of the soundnes'. joint picnic of the juvenile bands un-io f the statement that the real agent der Mr. Ruedi's leadership, with the lo f peace is the citizen who believes in adequate defense is found in a recent stirring address delivered be- fore a notable audience under the auspices of the Cameron Club at Al- exandria, Virginia, by Senator Ar- thur R. Robinson, of Indiana, one of the statesmen of our upper national legislative body who can always be found on the side of sound, construc- tive nationalism. Senator Robinson presented his audience with some striking statistics on the terrible losses which came to America because of the World War. In addition to the loss of life in bat- tle and the expenditure of billions of dollars the Senator stated that at this time, thirteen years after the signing of the Armistice, we have not ,et reached the peak of disability, so terrific is war in the modern sense. Sixty thousand Americans, he declar- ed, lie buried and awaiting the Judgement Day on foreign soil, and there are sixty-three veteran's hospit- als in nearly every state of the U- nion, with 150,000 beds occupied, and with huge waiting lists in addition. This, he added, does not begin to tell the story of human sacrifice and suf- fering, while on the material side there is depression and a money loss which will finally mount to a hund- red billion dollars. All of which ought to indicate that Senator Robinson, himself an ex-ser- vice man, is not a ,militarist in any sense of the word. Yet, he declared fin the same address, while we do not want war, and recognize it as a ter- rible thing, the way to avoid such suffering in the future is to be pre- pared to defend our land against it, so that other nations will hesitate to attack us. International agreements, when the crisis comes, are futile things as the recent events in Man- churls well prove to us. No sane person in the United States wants war or desires that our country engage in war. Yet every rune person who studis the world sit- uation carefully, must realize that, as the richest nation in the world, if we destroy our defensive armament, and depend on international agree- monte entirely, we will only invite at- tack, at the first opportunity from some nation which does not plac its faith in scraps of paper. Equitable reduction of armament by world-wide agreement, is of course muchto be desired, although not to be confident- ly expected at any time in the near future. But to advocate that Uncle Sam sink his navy, abandon his ar- my and abolish military training as a pacific example to the rest of the world is, charitably speaking, but to show one's asininity, especially in the present state of world feeling. We were not prepared to defend ourselves at the beginning of the World War. Had we been adequate- ly prepared it is possible that some of the terrible loss which Senator Robinson so graphically described, might have been avoided. And there is today, as Senator Robinson recog- nizes, no sane argument against ade-i quate preparedness for defense. The men and women who advocate such preparedness are the real con- structlve pacifists of America. Uncle Sam protested earnestly that he wanted nothing out of the big war tnd has been given a pain in the neck for his magnanimity.  New York Sun. Streets in several foreign cities are named for significant historic dates. Why couldn't we'pick out the roughest detour in the nation and call it 19817 parents and promoters at some good picnic grounds and a concert with the massed bands. PONDEROSA PINE, IS OFFICIAL NAME Western yellow pine will hereaf- ter be known as ponderosa pine, ac- cording to Regional Forester C. J. Buck, Portland, Oregon. The techni- cal name of this species is pinus pon- derosa and the approved as.tureen or English name has heretofore been western yellow pine. The well-known tree of the southern states is yellow pine and in the past great confusion has resulted in the lumber trade be- tween these two similar names for woods totally different. This change was recommended by the nomenclature committee of the U. S. Forest Service which change was approved by the regional forest- era, the forest experiment stations and later by the chief forester. Ac- cording to Regional Forester Buck, this name, ponderosa pine, will be used henceforth by the U. S. Forest Service and will designate th wood of the pinus ponderosa and of Jeff- rey pine which is of the same family. According to late estimates of the federal foresters, there are over 85 billion board feet, lumber tally, of londerosa pine sawtimber in Oregon and some 16 million board feet in Washington. Ponderosa pine is one of the im- portant forest and lumber trees of the western states. It has a very wide geographic range, being found from British Columbia south through the Rocky Mountain and Interior Ba- sin to Arizona and far into Mexico, and from the Pacific region east to South Dakota and Nebraska. It has been known under a large number of co.,re'non or trade names, such as yellow, red, and white pine, bull, big and heavy pine, Oregon pine, Arizona soft pine, Mexican pine and in Eng- land is known as ,'heavy-wooded pine." It is a large and beautiful pine, ve hardy and adaptable to many locations, and its wood is valuable for a wide variety of uses.

Bell home from Washington to i see that the state Democrats stand hitched, and A. Scott BuUitt, becom- ing more astute as he grows older in the brand of politics played out here, is home for the same purpose. Inci- dentally, Senator Dill does not want the fact to be lost sight of that he would like the state convention to mention him as a possibility for the vice presidency. Clark county has al- ready acted in county conventionn and" so instructed its delegation. President Hoover has nominated Kenneth Mackintosh of Seattle for the vacancy on'the United States Circuit Court of Appeals at San Francisco. Organized labor through the American Federation lobby at Washington is fighting his confirma- tion. The president also nominated Fed- eral Judge James Bert Wilkerson of Chicago to the Circuit Court of that' district, and the American Federa- tion is fighting him. Judge Wilker- son is the man who slammed Scar Face Al Capone into prison, and took a long step towards freeing Chi- cago of gang rule. But Judge Wilkerson like Judge Mackintosh, during a long term of office on the bench, was called upon more than once to decide law ques- tions. In this both upheld their oaths and decided just what the law was. Organized labor angered, now [retaliates. Labor wanted the law twisted to suit its ends. Don't Forget To Register WHAT'S DOING IN POL ITICS? By JIMMIE KAYE BROWNE OLYMPIA, Feb. 17 --Democrats of this state are opposed to the two- thirds rule in their national conven- tions and the fight which is being re- vived against this traditional vote of the Bourbons, finds Washington ar- rayed with the rest of the West and the North against the South. Six years ago he Democrats in their state convention went on record as opposed to the two-thirds rule for making nomiations. This was when the Democratic drys demanded the change. At that, George F. Christ- ensen, national committee,nan, was instructed to work for such modifica- tion. William G. McAdoo was then strongly in favor f the shift. But two years later or four years ago there was another chang'e of sen- timent on the part of the Democrats. In fact this shifting back and forth has varied with he various presiden- tial booms When the Al Smith fol- lowers looming strong on the politic-i al horizon two years back, discover- ed on a count of noses they hehl a bare majority at this time of the year, the out and out drys switched tactics. They were fichu for the two-thirds rule, hoping to thus head off Smith. It was not changed. Smith was nominated despite it. Now, four years later, the same old fight is up. This time it finds the Franklin D. Roosevelt people de- manding it. The feel that with a majority vote they can nominate Roosevelt. Under the two-thirds rule they are far from confident. Hence the hue and cry for modification. Another angle. One of the news- paper chains is grooming Speaker Garner for the presidency and the i publisher of this group feels that with the two&hird provision out of the way, his candidate may stand a better chance. There is no doubt but that the West this year as in the past is op- posed to the rule, and the nominal state head of the Democrats, Sen. C. C. Dill, is leading the fight against it at the present writing. For the first time since the depres- sion started Paris is beginning to have jobless riots. Evidently old man Hard Times is making the round and won't neglect anybody before he gets ready to quit. Think of the laugh that Heron Lake., Minn., man with 19 children will have on the income tax collect- ors.
