A cordial welcome is extended to WILL NOT PUSH LOAN COLLECTIONS SPOKANE--Authorities here, after analysing last week's decision of the secretary of agriculture, say that wheat farmers in Washington, north- ern Idaho, Oregon and western Mon- tana have been relieved of repaying this fall to the federal government, about $637,000 extended to them by loans. The announcement from the sec- retary was to the effect that he would not push for collection of about 75 per cent of the repayment of crop production loans in view of the low prices for wheat, and that the te-ms of repayment wouhl be left to the next session of congl'ess. Repayment of this season's seed loans to the Spokane regional office will approximate 15 per cent the end of September. They had reached a- bout 14 last week, with the day's payments totaling $5000. About $1,- 000,000 was put out. apple workers to attend this church. Come in your work clothes if you want to. We will be glad to welcome you. The white church with the light on the steeple.

BILES-CO00AN LUMBER CO. "The Community Builders" OMAK PHONE 174 T. I _ i i 1 ii, _ I NATIONAL AFFAIRS By FRANK P. LITSCHERT Evidently the list of people who would like to know just what is Gov- ernor Roosevelt's actual stand on the! question of protection, is growing. The platform of his party, which has been endorsed by the candidate for President, calls for a competitive tar- iff for revenue. What does that mean ? One distinguished student of tariff principles has evidently come to the !conclusion that this means competit- ion between American workers and the cheaply paid workers of Europe and Asia who are not used to the A- merican standard of living. That stu- dent is Matthew Well, vice-president of he American Federation of La- bor, who assailed a lower tariff poli- cy in a nation-wide radio address the other night, declaring that the appli- cation of such principles meant the menace of foreign competition and foreign wage scales for Americar workers. In his address Mr. Well pointed out the fact that average wages in A- merican manufacturing' industry last year were 60 cents an hour while the average rate was 12 cents an , . I hour in France, rune cents m Italy and seven cents an hour in Japan. Even a beginner in the study of ecoomics ought to be able to see what wouhl result if our tariff schedules were lowered to the point where v would have a competitive tariff for revenue. And Governor Roosevelt might tell his public whether he wants the American workers to compete with the twelve cent French, the nine cent Italian or the seven cent Japan- ese worker. In dealing on the old qustion of markets Mr. Well said "Government statistics clearly indicate that more than 93 per cent of the products of American labor and agriculture are consumed in America. This is due to the high standard of living and work which prevails in our land. Our prob- lem is rather that of extending the home consuming power. "Unrestrained competition of for- eign with domestic goods in our home market, whether agricultural or in- dustrial products, cannot and will not solve our problems, but will contrib- ute to their severity." There can be no question as to the soundness of this argument. Theoreti- cal free traders would have us open the gratest market in the world, one which consumes 93 per cent of our farm and manufactured products, to the wares of cheap foreign producers in the fond hope that this would in- crease our markets abroad. But how would we fare in exchanging our big home market made up of consumers who have money to spend, for one in Europe where the average rate of wages is ten cents an hour. And as for Governor Roosevelt's competitive tariff, competition in goods means competition in wages. How would it help our producers to cut the earning capacity of our work- 'ere from sixty to ten cents an hour? Wouldn't it rather be better to in- crease the wage of the foreign worker to sixty cents an hour? The answer to this is of course that we haven't anything to do with fixing foreign wages. Certainly not, and in the mean time let us keep tariff schedules that will protect the sixty cents an hour worker in America from the ten cent worker in Europe. The best way to help, as Mr. Well suggests, is to extend the home raax- ket which still has great possibilities. There would be no sense or logic in giving up this market in the hope that sometime we might get some- thing in Europe. About all Uncle Sam ever gets in Europe is a pain in the neck. But in the meantime there is dan- ger to our cconomic structure in talk of a competitive tariff for revenue. As Mr. Well well says, "Unless we stand guard, the barriers which have been erected to protect our stand- ards and institutions will be nibbled away or torn down by our enemies and by our well meaning but ill ad- vised friends." American children spent more than $50,000,000 for penny candies last year. If visitors put a penny i] the slot, a mechanical alTn at the London zoo will too a fish to the hungry sea lions.

WHY A FELLER NEEDS A DOG By ttarlan Pendleton For about 7000 years the dog has been a friend and companion or ]nan. It is said that the dog "asks nothing :and gives all," but he must be treat- ed as a companion to bring out his finest qualities. To do this you must love your dog and he must love you. Dogs bark in different ways to express their desires and emotions. The dog is about the only 'friend who asks nothing and gives all. He thinks that we are always in the right no matter what we do. He wags his tail and barks with gratitude at every- thing we do. His greeting is the same whether we go on a long journey or cross the street for a few minutes. To be with us seems to be his de- light. He never tells us not to do a thing but he seems to want to help us with the things we do. I read a story of a shepherd "dog that showed real companionship. That dog was a playmate of a nine-year- oht girl who lived in New Jersey. Diptheria siezed the girl and she died. The do' seemed to be very .mch troubled. He followed the boo] to the cemetery. He would not eat and he scarcely slept, and each day, regard- less of weather, he would make his way to the cemetery and lie on the grave. Often he would bring along some toy with which they had played. The dog stood it just as lend as hc could and then did a most amazing thing. From puppy-hood he had been trained to keep out of the road. Yet one morning he walked deliberately into the road in front of an automo- bile and was killed. A friend is the most priceless gift that a man possesses, and to obtain and keep this gift requires constant !cmpanionship to give ervice to man. I believe that the sacrifices dogs make for man, and the faith a dog places in his master, are examples of the finest qualities of life, qualitie which mm might show in a greater degree to everybody about him. MY VACATION ADVENTURE By Edith Vaughan One day I found a gold pan which belonged to two boys from Seattle. As they had gone home I decided to use it. I went down to the river and sat in the shade of a large rock a- long its bank. On being told to look for dirt which had black earth and a rusty looking mbstance in it, I searched until 1 found some which answered this de- scription. I put it into the pan and poured the pan nearly full of water. As I began slowly washing the dirt I began planning what I would do with the gold. I kept washing the water around and brushing off the pieces of gravel and rocks and look- ing but I didn't see any gold. I had expected to see pieces of gold as large as dimes. The sun sank lower and lower. I was beginning to get very discouraged, when I saw a little fleck of yellow. I had to take a pair of tweezers to get it out. I kept run- ning the water around in the pan. Every once in a while I would see a speck of gold and I would remove it with the tweezers. I kept this up for a couple of hours and by that time I had ten little pieces of gold about the size of a pin head. 1 came to the con- clusion as I walked wearily home- ward that if a person worked stead- ily all day from early morning to ev- ening he might perhaps be able to buy an all day sucker at the end of the second day. OUR JANITOR, MR. ASBURY We are very glad to have Mr. As- bury the janitor, with us again. He has been employed in the Brewster school for a long time.
