PERMIT ISSUE STUDIED
Curbing of Grants Urged to
Prevent Lowering of Cerv
At the convention of county
school superintendents here dur
ing the week, O. C. Brown of
pduglas count, C. E. Mulkey of
Cooa coounty and W.j W. Grn of
Umatilla- county presented reports
showing the advantages of the
consolidation of districts. . All
three were agreed that consolida
tion has tremendous advantages
over the old system, bat empha
sized that road construction must
precede consolidation. The last
year. It Is said, has been conspic
uous in consolidation. Douglas
coounty has been more active hi
that line than any other county,
due mainly to road development.
Permit Too Central
A concensus of opinion of the
superintendents was that there
should be a tightening up on the
issuing of permits to teachers to
prevent a lowering of standards of
certification. During and follow
ing the. war county superinten
ded issued manay permits be
cause of scarcity of teachers.

Neuritis Victim Hardly
Sunday Health Talk Xo. 21 '
l! By O. Im Scott, I. C. j
The neuritis victim hardly knows the
" danger of this disease. Usually the pain
Is so persistent day and night that any
measure of relief tj welcome and no
thought of future danger is possible.
- Neuritis, like neuralgia, may be caused
by a local displacement of spinal vertebra,
and, thus affect only a part of he body.
If nerves are affected in a number of
places at the same time. It Is what is
called multiple neuritis' and is caused by "
pressure on the spinal cord at the base '
of the brain.
The danger of neuritis if not quickly
checked is that the heart in the nerve fi
nally atrophies or destroys the nerve. This
degeneration of the nerve tissue, if the
neuritis .for instance affects, the arm,
amounts to a loss of power in that' arm.
Neuritis should be checked at once. Its
very nature points clearly to the ''need of
chiropractic spinal adjustments.

Those who. have been wonder

so optimistic a ring that it's giv

"The lands here are the cheap
est good lands in the farming
world, today. We've been carry
ing some advertising back in the
Missouri valley country,- and are
close enough. in touch with values
and with people there, to know
how to compare the two coun
tries. The Missouri valley has
been held to be one of the richest
countries on the globe. General
Grant said, after his tour around
the wdrldt that the 200 miles of
Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri and
Kansas, . radiating from the cor
ner of the four states, was the
richest farm country of the world.
We'll let it go at that.
"But you'd be surprised, and
eitherple asedo shrdl shdr shhhm
either pleased or alarmed, at the
many farm people who want to
get away from there and coma
out hee. The lands are produc
tive, but they are high in price;
higher evn than they are here,
and witluall the drawbacks of that
country. No man can ever make
as mucr per acre on that land as
he can out here, on any one of
a number of crops. Their values,
however, are stabilized. The lanl
is actually proven to be worth
their price. It follows, of course,
that if we can give superior cli
matic and social and political ad
vantages, along with better crops
and pr'ces. our lands are worth
more than theirs.
"That's what whole armies of
their people are saying. Thay
want to pack tin and come west
to Oregon. Why, the trains
wouldn't hold 'em all this spring
if they could sell and move right
now. They'd be grabbing the
Willamette farms at the current
prices that local buyers seem to
think excessive, and throwing fits
of joy over the saving In acreage
or price in the exchange. For our
prices are Hot as high as theU-s.
The Missouri- valley farmer who
told a good farm for real money
could come here and buy an ap
proximately acreage with mis
money, and have enough left over
to start a bank. ' I
"I look for prices to go 'way
up here, rather than to decline
even a little. The competition of
buyers is bound to bring this in
creas3. "Plain grain lands of the
valley will pay fair returns at
from $125 an acre up. j Good or
chard lands, for berries Or larger
fruit, will pay on two or three or
even five times that price. There
isn't much land anywhere around
Salem as low 'as $100, and there
oughtn't to be, for It's worth the
price;-. - ' -
