It is customary for some pessimists, in speaking of the busi
ness outlook, to say that the United States can not be prosperous
until Europe recovers its normal condition. As it will be some
years before Europe recovers pre-war prosperity, that makes the
fituation look blue to the average mechanic or business man. He
feels in the grip of world wide forces which he can't improve, and
which his country as a whole can't modify very much. Yet this
point of view ignores the fact that our exports during recent years
have been only about 10 per cent of our total production. Before
the war they were considerably less than that. Even under the
depressed conditions prevailing during the first eight months of
thi3 year, the United States exported $3,227,000,000 worth of
products. Before the war our exports for a whole year were run
ning only about $2,220,000,000. Of course the recent figures look
big because they are based on higher prices. But after price dif
ferences are allowed, the volume of exports today compares favor
ably with that existing before the war. And as our exports are
only a small part of total production, we could lose a considerable
fraction of them and not suffer seriously, if conditions were rifhl
at home. It is worth while studying these figures a little, to re
fute the idea that this country must drag along for years without
recovering its normal times, owing to bad conditions in Europe.
Jf there are troubles in business here, they are principally due to
some internal dislocation, some lack of a proper balance in our
own affairs, which our people should be bright enough to study
out and remedy for themselves. An increase of foreign trade
would of course start things up a good deal in this country. But
Europe is buying heavily of us today so we must look nearer home
for .the difficulties that most impede the return of full prosperity.
Many schools and colleges are giving courses in "business
management." So many are taking the training, that some people
have remarked that there were going to be more managers than
workers. Not all the young people who study to become execu
tives can attain any large success. But they will accomplish"
something if they get ideas of efficient work. The small business
will be far more profitable, if run on systematic principles. The
mechanic at his bench and the clerk behind the counter both need
more systematic ways of performing their tasts. These courses
are spreading this idea of efficiency, and in so far as these prin
ciples are applied to industry, they must reduce cost of production
and benefit everybody.
The American people spend millions to cram the young peo
ple with book knowledge, and then let a lot of them come out of
school with impaired health. It was disappointing recently, when
the United States Chamber of Commerce learned that out of
every $100 spent for school purposes, only 48 cents on an average j
goes for the promotion of health among school children, througti
j medical inspection, school nurses, etc. let superb results are
(being achieved by those cities and counties like Roseburg that
I have provided a school nurse, and other features of health work.
The school nurse discovers epidemics before they get a foothold,
and saves expense for doctors and nurses. She persuades ignorant
people to call a doctor where otherwise they would neglect their
children. She discovers defects that could handicap a child for
life. Forty-eight cents out of a $100 for such activities is penny
wise and pound foolish.

The G. A. R. held a meeting here.
iThey used to call it a reunion, but
Shis year the old boys called it a
"frolic" proving that they're still
young In spirit.
Furthermore, ono of the principal
attractions was a circus an amateur
circus, but a three-ring one. Just the
same. There was everything there
but an elephant. ,
That was the only objection of the
lO. A. It. They missed the elephant.

Agnln Ibis a. in. we ree'd a long
