HOOD RIVER IDEAL
Fugene, Ore. Hood Hirer Is an
Ideal rural community, declared Ir.
Joseph Schafer, In a recent lecture at
the Summer Session of the University
The question was asked during a
discussion of the relative Influence of
rural and urban communities on the
movements of history, whether an
Ideal rural community had ever ac
tually existed. Dr. Schafer replied
Instantly that Hood Hlver Is one. He
said that he hail Just visited the
place and to his mind the Hood Hlv
er district formed the ideal rural com
"The people of the town and coun
try are of the same social level," he
said. "They have practically the
same Interests and are at perfect
peace and harmony with each other.
Churches, postofliees and grocery
stores are scattered about conven
iently. Telephones, electric lights,
rural delivery, water supply, good
roads for the automobiles In which
nearly every one may run to town
In a few minutes have developed a
community In which there Is very
little difference bet ween the town and
the country. The schools are good,
the people are Intelligent anil pro

Some observations that have been
made lately by hog raiser in the
Tlclnlty of Penver seem to show that
cholera has teeu much more preva
lent In herds which have received lit
part of their rutlou hotel and restau
rant awlll. The fact has beeu noted,
but Just why It la so has not been de
termined. One of the greatest sources of disin
tegration and corruption In a govern
ment such as our own lies In the In
difference and apathy of the so called
"good citizen," who has to be hauled to
the polls to vote by those Interested In
the principles of representative gov
ernment or those actuated by corrupt
or selfish motives.
