What Should a Dairy Cow Produce?
Statistics tell us that the average milk production in the
United States is 4021 pounds per cow per year. Yet
under better breeding and feeding many cows, yield
10,000 pounds, some 20,000 pounds, and a few 30,000
pounds and more.
Then, if extra care in selection and breeding, and a
better knowledge of feeding can multiply production
twice, thrice and even six times, isn’t the matter worthy
of the utmost attention!
We look at it that way here at the First National
bank, and are always glad and ready to assist farmers
in procuring or increasing or bettering their herds within
practical and profitable limits.
To anyone interested in studying livestock breeding
and production from the ^standpoint of results, the Pa
cific biternational Livestock Exposition at Portland, No
vember 3 to 10, offers unparalleled opportunities. In the
great 10-acre livestock amphitheatre more than 3800 head
of purebred dairy and beef breeds, sheep, hogs, horses
and goats; also 2500 chickens and rabbits, will be gath
ered. This has become the largest and most varied live
stock show in America. You will gain a liberal education
in stockraising and feeding by attending.

THE AMERICAN WAY
America stands today at the cross
roads of destiny. We are face to
face with a great decision, which
we cannot evade or postpone and
which involves the future of every
man, woman and child and of every
The question has to do with the
relation of government am! the peo
ple. Under our scheme of life,
government exists for the citizen;
the citizen docs not exist for his
government. In America g.'.vern-
ment was created for the ptirp pose of
protecting its citizens from danger,
of guaranteeing them in their rights

An American chooses his own
work and his own career, lie makes
his own place in society. When he
acquires prcqierty, by honest means,
as he usually does, his right to the
possession and enjoyment of that
property is as sacrr.l under our laws
as is his right to life itself.
Not only is the individual free to
acquire and to own private property
by his own individual effort, but he
also has the right to cooperate with
other individuals in the production
«nd ownership of private wealth.
When two or ten or a thousand
persons unite in the ownership of
private property, as in a joint stock
company or a partnership, each en
joys exactly the same property rights
under the law as if there were only
Economic Problems Pressing
There is reason to liclieve that for
a long time to come the thought of
the world will be centered upon eco
nomic problems. Having achieved
democracy in politics, religion and
education, we cannot stop until' we
have applied the same principle in
some form to the production and
ownership of wealth. The Ameri
can people will soon have to decide
how this shall be done. Shall we do
it by making the government every
thing and the individual nothing?
Or can we turn the trick by the
long-tested American method of
leaving the individual free to work
out the problem of individual initia
tive and free private cooperation?
A growing participation of more
and nu>re people in more and more

can be accom]
only in one of
two ways : either
wil! take everything and give beck
to the individual such a part as it
«nay determine, or individual citizens
will CKitinue to possess everything
and give to their Government such
part as may be necessary for its sup
port. The latter is the American
way ; the other is now being tried
out in Russia.
Now, we can only forecast or
judge the future by what we know
of the past and present. Have we,
therefore, any experience, ar insti
tution ar achievement, developed
under American conditions, that will
serve to throw light upon these
problems of progress ? Have we
given the American scheme a fair
trial? If so. has this trial made it
possible for more and more people
to secure a growing share in the
material good things of life?
Fortunately, we have an institu
tion which, by the application of
American ideals, principles and
methods, has grown so great and
been tested over so long a time, that,
in its history and in the results it
lias achieved, we can find an answer
to our question.
That institution is Life Insurance.
In this organization there are vast
accumulations of capital saved,
owned and administered by more of
our people: than arc associated in any
oth< r single enterprise except the
State itself. It is fair to say that
through no other institution have
so many people ever partici;>aied in
the desirable things of life with such
satisfying result« to themselves and
their drpendents, and with such gen
eral good to the community. It
touches in one way or another nearly
every man, woman and child in the
nation, and for that reason everyone
is interested in its history, its present
status and its future prospects.
In this type of economic and
social organization America leads
Institution is Young
The business of Life Insurance
in America is not very old. As re
cently as 1860 wc had only 47 com
panies with $180,000,000 of insur
ance outstanding upon the lives of
tO,000 persons. The greatest devel
opment has occurred since 1905. In
that year the Armstrong Investiga
tion in New York State directed
Eublic attention to the problems of
•ife Insurance as never before, and
marked the beginning of a develop
ment which is without parallel.
Misunderstanding was cleared away
from the public mind. The social
value of the institution was revealed.
All doubts of its economic sound
ness were dispelled. Its basic prin
ciples were interpreted not only to
the public but to all connected with
the institution itself. Abuses were
corrected, mistakes rectified and
standards determined for the guid
ance of the management The de
sirability of just supervision and con
trol by the State was emphasized,
and the ground-work was laid for
the development of the great variety
in the forms of insurance so that
the particular need and conditicui
of everyone could be met
The figures covering the period ai
expansion since 1906 are stupendous.
The total outstanding insurance of
all American companies has in
creased since 1906 from $13,50Q-
(W.000 to about $50000^000000 in
In 1922, $10,500000000 new insur
ance was written, which is nearly as
much as the total insurance m force
twenty years ago.
At the beginning of 1923, Ameri
