Page Two THE MONROE MONITOR--Monroe, Washington Friday, October 28, 1927 Iml II IIll THE MONROE MONITOR Consolidated With THE MONROE INDEPENDENT By d. d. REARDON & SON PUBLISHED EVERY FRIDAY Entered as second-class matter at the postoffice at Monroe, Washington, under the act of March 3, 1879. McNARY CHARTS NEW COURSE OF FARM RELIEF In a formal statement at Portland Tuesday, Senator McNary of Oregon, who sponsored the McNary-Haugen farm relief bill in the senate, said that he regarded the defeat of that measure in the last congress as a closed subject. But Senator McNary does not abandon farm relief. As he explained in his statement, there are three schools of thought. One asks machinery for orderly marketing; a second asks producers to levy an equalization fee to absorb losses, provided the surplus is sold on a lower foreign price level; the third contends that the loss should be absorbed by the treasury of the United States. Senator McNary will try to harmonize ideas into a unified working plan. The chief difficulty which he and others will encoun- ter will be with .the third school of thought, that losses should be borne by the treasury of the United States. A measure involving that principle would probably be defeated in one or both houses of congress, and be vetoed by President Coolidge if it should pass congress. But machinery for orderly marketing can be had from congress and the president, and an equalization fee to absorb losses when the surplus is sold on-the lower foreign price levels could be passed in congress and probably would be approved by the president if it were held to the sound economic lines of the plan originally proposed by the American Wheat Growers, Inc. Under that plan, not a dollar would come as a dona- tion from the treasury. The equalization fee would be collected from the entire domestic production of wheat or other farm products, and would be applied to payment of the export bounty on the surplus shipped abroad. The marketing of the products, the warehousing and the gen- eral handling from the producers would be carried on by exisiting private agencies or by farm cooperatives, or both. The government would have no hand in that com- plicated and technical business. Its service would be confined to collection from the producers of the equali- zation fee and disbursement of the sums thus collected to the exported surplus.' If Senator McNary and other sincere workers for farm relief can work out a compromise measure along these lines, it will be a service of great benefit to agri- culture, and in a broader way to the nation. GIVE HOME GROWERS A SQUARE DEAL Growers of the Lewiston-Clarkston valley are propos- Ing a campaign to educate the people of that region on the importance of purchasing home-grown products in preference to those shipped from outside points. They complain of conditions that are similar to conditions in the Spokane valley--that the market is flooded {rom outside points at about the time the local commodities are ready to harvest. ( One grower near Lewiston, engaged extensively in the production of vegetables, melons and other products, said that he had been in stores in the Lewiston-Clark- ston valley recently when patrons would come in and ask for California-grown vegetables, when if they had made an examination of the local-grown products they would have found that they were far superior, being crisp and fresh from the truck gardens that day, while those shipped in were inferior in every particular and the price was about the same. Lewiston-Clarkston growers do not blame local mer- chants for handling outside products, for the merchants, they say, are in business and give the public what it wants. Unfortunately, they say, the public has not given the matter serious thought. Too many people do not stop to think of the importance of keeping their money at home through the purchase of home-grown fruits and vegetables. Unwillingness by local consumers to wait a while for the coming in of their superior home products is the root of this evil. Products from California, Florida and other distant states come in ahead of the home-grown products and people buy them at fancy prices. Then, by the time the home products come into market, the dis- tantly grown products have gained a footing in the lo- cal market, and many uninformed buyers continue the habit of supporting distant producers to the neglect of their neighbors, although these neighbors are growing superior products. TAKING PRIDE IN THEIR LOCAL HISTORY The Pacific northwest is taking a keener interest in local history. From Montana to the Pacific, commemor- ative gatherings are reported. Out on the plains of eastern Montana at Chinook, a few days ago, exercises i were held cqmmenmrating the 50th anniversary of Chief  Joseph's surrender. Chief Justice Calloway of the Mon- tana supreme court was the principal speaker. A monu- ment is proposed, marking the site of the surrender of Joseph's little band of Nez Perce, and the government will be asked to set aside 160 or 320 acres of government land as a national monument. The scene and the interest shift now to the junction of the Columbia and Snake rivers near Pasco, where re- cently several hundred persons witnessed the unveiling of a monument marking the camping place of the Lewis and Clark expedition October 16, ]805. The state his- torical society and the Daughters of Washington" Pion- eers are given just credit for their interest and support. Still more inspiring was the activity manifested by citi- zens of the Pasco region. It was fitting that the mayor of Pasco, a resident of 47 years, presided, and that his granddaughter and another descendant of a pioneer fam- ily drew the flags in the unveiling exercises. Between the lighting of their camp fires at that his- toric site, 122 years ago, by the first, white men to pene- trate the Inland Empire, and the present hour lies an era of unparalleled progress of civilization, from the re- public's former frontiers on the Mississippi to the great ocean that beats upon its western shores.--Spokesman- Review. WAR VETERANS STRONG FOR PEACE The official.tour of the American legion had for its high and supreme object the fostering of enduring friendship, and should dispose of the pacifist notion that military training and experience make young men bel- ligerent and blcodthirsty. Legion officials and the le- gi.onnaires in large numbers have been officially re- ceived with high honors at Paris, Rome, Brussels and London. On the eve of the departure from London, Commander Savage issued a farewell message to the Britis h people, affirming truly that "the legion's official tour had but one motive--that of good will." The aftermath of all the great wars that America has fought has been a revulsi9n against war in the minds and hearts of veterans. General Grant summed up in four words, after Appomattox, the deep longing of the men in his army, "Let us have peace." The peaceful purpose of the American legion is creditable to the legionnaires and their countrymen, and a high service to civilization and humanity. MINING CAMP 'PREACHERS Gold miners of northern Manitoba not long ago ad- vertised for a minister--'a he man who wears a Mack- maw and stuffs his pants in his boots and can paddle a canoe and trek on snowshoes.' All of which was per- fectly in aecord with human nature. The successful clergyman must understand the problems of his fellows. The problems of a mining camp are comparatively rudi- mentary: a knowledge of hardships, of rough life, an aptitude for good fellowship. But it is as necessary that the mining camp, preacher understand these, as that the metropolitan clergyman know the complex problems of a great city. William Mullins and Christopher Martin were the only Irishmen who came over on the Mayflower. +++++++++++++4 iinterested in.

The game started rather unevenly, Lord making a long run which brought the ball well up into Snoho- mish territory. From there Carlson ran for a touchdown, Salvadalena running splendid interference. At the end of the first five minutes of the game the score was 6-0 in favor of the home team. Toward the end of the first quar- ter, however, the Snohomish line tightened up, and the game become more of a real battle. Snohomish at- tempted several passes which were not successful. In the second quar- ter, the game was close, neither side gaining ground, although Spillars and Carlson made some runs. In the third quarter, Reaper and Mc- Ginn carried the pigskin for good gains. A pass from Reaper to Salva- da]ena resulted in a touchdown, mak- ing the score 12-0. In the last quarter, a pass from Spillers to Salvadalena very nearly brought the score up another notch, but it was a little outside. The final score was 12-0, despite a good run by Vaughn, started just before the final gun sounded. The line up: Augustine ............ LER ................ Peters Walker ..................
