FRIDAY, APRIL 8, 1921. PRICES MUST BE EQUALIZED. Secretary of Agriculture Wallace makes the statement that the country can not have real prosperity, or do business on a basis generally satis- factory, until food prices rise or other prices decline to a level with food prices. He points out that the pen- dulum of price readjustments has swung too violently and too far in the direction of the farmer and that one of two things must happen before the country can be truly and perma- nently prosperous: The price of food- stuffs must advance or the price of everything else must drop still fur- ther, until the buyer's dollar and the farmer's dollar are worth exactly the same amount. One thing is certain: The farmer cannot pay. with wheat selling at 75 cents per bushel, the same price for the things that he must buy that he paid when wheat was $2.25 and $2 a bushel, and the manu- facturer and the wholesaler may :'.s well take this into consideration. Un- der the present condition the farmer and the retailer are the sufferers. The retailer must keep a stock of goods on hand and the prices he is compelled to pay the wholesaler for his stock are above the prices that the farmer can afford to pay at retail. at the present price of farni products. The result, as the secretary of agri- culture says, is a most difficult con- dition under which to conduct busi- ness. He predicts, however, an early and permanent change for the better. There are about 6,000,000 farmers in the United States and about 35,000,000 persons engaged in agricultural pursuits. This group comprises by big odds the larg- est single industry in the country. It is pointed out by Secretary Wallace that farming is a basic industry and unless the farmer is prosperous no- body else in the country is going to enjoy any great amount of prospert- I hate than the producer of any other] railroads and their earnings, which in agricultural commodity.

The rea- son for the refusal was that societies active in the movements to obtain recognition for the Irish republic and lreedom for India were to be in the line of march. Upon protest from the marshal of the parade to the war fie- p~rtment in Washington, Secretary Weeks telegraphed that he would not i interfere with the ruling of the corn- wending officer. A similar dispatch was sent by Secretary of the Navy Denby concerning orders that had I,eoal issued by navy officers in Bos, ton. President Harding in a tele- gram upheld the position taken by his departmental heads. The incident is highly significant. Every subterfuge is being resorted to to entice the United States in partici- pation, tacit or otherwise, in the in- ternal disputes of the British Empire. Were similar movements to be set ml feet in other nations for the parti- ti6ning their territory, we should see the same sort of propaganda in: behalf of one side or the other. The United States must scrupulously avoid entanglements of the sort. States and municipalities may de things highly improper in the nation- al government. Local bodies may march with those who cheer for for- eign partisans, but for the United States troops to parade side by side with organizations that have for their avowed purpose the furnishing of aid to those revolutionaries woula be but a stepping stone to intrigue of a more serious nature. President Harding and his cabinet advisers are guided by their duty to America tirst, and will not be swerved from that course. FROM INDIA TO ALABAMA. An example of the economic de- pendence of one country on another far distant from it is given by the National Bank of Commerce Of New York in its Commerce Monthly. Be- this country attempt to live isolated from the rest of the world. It can- not be done. ~ieans of communica- tion have drawn the world together so closely that they have become a great nerw~ system. When a shock occurs to any nerve, it is felt through the whole system. Vthen a bad har- vest deprives the Hindu of means to buy a new shirt, the price of cotton falls in New Orleans. It is a trite saying that this is a small world and that-it constantly grows smaller, but we need to be re-j minded of the fact daily in orderI that we may act upon it.---Oregon[an.* Representatlvc Roy Jones of tlli.~ county, speaoking receutly before the Colfax Commercial Chlb, gave one of the reasons why taxes are high in this state. He asserted, and rightly, that this state has a citizenship that is more than ordinarily progressive, de- nianding rapid development. "We have accomplished in a few years what the slower and less progressive states of the cast have t)een from 50 to 75 )-ears 0ccoml)lishing and Representative Jones believes that, inasmuch as we musi pay for our progress, this is one of the causes of high taxes. He :allowed that only a small part of the t~x money is appropriated by the leg- islature, by far the larger part going for hlcal purposes. 'The people just simply have to pay for what the)' get and the greaier their demands, the higher the bill which they must pay through taxation. ......................... As a result of the unpopularity of teaching as a calling, resulting large- ly from the meager wages formerly peid, only one fifth of the public school teachers have now the equiv- alent of a high school course with two years in a normal school, which is considered for good school work. More than 60,000 teachers in the schools this year are reported as de- cidedly below the grade of those who held the same places last year. Anti ty.

Flour A good citizen does not confine his or her interest to one little corner of a town, or to one little clique or fac- tion, but takes an interest in every matter that is for the public well- being. A kindly and helpful interest in the affairs of a community is one of the marks of good citizenship, while attempted exclusiveness, es- pecially in a small community, i~ the real hunk, and only serves to makl ridiculous. The Palouse farmer is keep[n! down the expense of producing his crop this year in every way possible and when fall comes, if he gets a nor- real crop, which he is certain to do, it would not be surprising to find that It will net him more money than some of the high priced crops of the pa~t two or three years, when the cost of Production traveled hand in hand with the advance in price. While some people think they are justified in complaining about the lateness'of spring weather in the Pa- louse, they probably haven't read in the papers about the snowstorms, blizzards, etc., that other sections of the country have been experiencing. ......................
