audience. - ; ' i

' " On leaving Salem, Mr. Blower
went, to Klamath Falls as secre
tary of tire Commercial club there,
which position he held for about
stx months, and then went on the
lecture platform, where he has
been ever since. His headquar
ters are In New York and he en
joys an income of about $25,001
year frim fiTlri lectures in
public ' and - to the employes of
larger corporations, such as , the
Pierce-Arrow Motor Car compear,
the Willys Overland, Pacific Telei
phone & Teiegrapli company, etc,
He also gives courses of study 07
mail , on "Brain Power' and In
clude in the coarse six books of
which be Is the author. ,
Mentality Demonstrated
In lntrodaclng himself to his
Rotary audience, Mr. Blower
gave an exhibition of bis keeo,
active mind by asking his audi
ence to ' name sets of figures,
which were written on a black
board backwards by an assistant.
After having ' written three com
plete rows of figures across toe
board, containing , probably 50
figures in i all, Mr. Blower read
them backwards, firing the value
of the entire set,, beginning in
trillions. During the time the
figures had -been , written on the
board he at no time saw a figure
written, only heading them as
they were called out by men In
the audience. It was a remark
able exhibition of the training 'of
the brain. . ,- -2
- He emphasised . in ; his lecture
the fact that the foundation of
business success is a healthy
body, which is within reach? of
any man, and that the stomach
will take care of ' Itself ft ?the
month is regulated. He said most
People are like lobsters, : which
animal crowds down its food and
had its teeth in its stomach, only
that the human - fceing has no
teeth in the stomach and Suffers
the consequences" of his folly in
so doing. - I
- He recommended that his hear
ers, buy Walter Camp's book on
"The Dally Dozen and practice
those exercises five minutes in
the morning and five mihutes in
the evening. They, are the same
exercises for which congress held
a special session and, liBteaed to
Mr. Camp's lecture and demon
stration of his exercises. 4 Some
of his pithy remarks were:
. r No Age Limit J ,
- "There is no reason why a man
or Woman of 45 should look eith

I NEW YORK, July 26. Stocks
were actire and strong at the op
ening of today's session on news
that, the federal authorities had
taEen -control of food and coal
traffic, but heary selling later
caused many net, lobses.
Oils and motors were again the
vulnerable features. Mexican
Seaboard common and certificates
registered new lows for the move
ment. , ' v- ' - '... ,
Although the report of the
United States Steel corporation
for the year's second quarter was
regarded as extremely favorable,
that Issue showed occasional pres
sure with most of the prominent
independent steels. Buying of
equipments, as well as coppers
and affiliated shares, was inter
mittent at best.
i Rails cancelled the greater
part of their moderate advances
tn the latter part of the trading.
A few stocks, such as corn pro
ducts and industrial alcohol, were
inclined to Ignore the reaction in
the general list, but Mexican Pe
troleum. which had shown con&ib-
tent strength, gave way in the
general reversal-toward the close,
a heavy tone then prevailing,
Sales amounted to 70,000 shares.
Call money rates held at 4 per
cent, until the final hour, when
offerings were made at 3 1-2 per
cent. Foreign exchanges added
very generally to yesterday's re
action. , . .

Bigger This Tear
' While this Is a wonderful rec
ord; ft does not even fairly ap
proach the volume of business al
ready outlined for 1932-23, for
the present indication is for a
three-millioa-dollar business for
the 1922 crop, now being harvested.
Some ot the items shown in the
table are mere incidentals. The
association aims to handle every
thing; that a grower produces, if
he so , desires, and assure him a
market for everything he wishes
to raise. The microscopic sale of
dried apples Indicates that the as
sociation is not making a spec
ialty of this sort ot fruit. The
grapes, too, make only a smalr to
tal. They come mostly from The
Dalles country and southern Ore
gon. The vegetables are entire
ly incidental though the handling
of broccoli was intended to be a
major operation, If the crop, bad
come through as expected.
Prunes Biggest Item
Prunes made by far the largest
item in the schedule, almost as
much as all the others pnt togeth
er.' The promise is for a far lar
ger total of prunes this year, both
in tonnage and In price. There
never was such a crop of prunes
in the valley as this year.
One of the innovation!! In the
prune business this year, will be
the packing of one, two and five
ponnd cartons for the retail trade.
These will be the finest product
of the Oregon orchards, sorted
and prepared as quality goods for
the small retail buyer, and it Is
believed they will "go over" with
a bang. It should boost the sales
of Oregon prunes, many millions
of pounds to have these choice
goods put out in an attractive,
small-family-size package.
, Nate Increasing , .
The sale ot nuts has not run
very large through the associa
tion, but with every rear there
should be a greatly increased pro
duction of nuts. This vear's sales
ought to be fully double those of
a year ago.
To make three million dollars
worth of business, every item must
average an increase of fully 50 per

" Statesman BrlnrJ Results
Without . discussing the deeisions
at issue, u is fair to assume that
a government agency is eve
ready to correct an error which
is made else government itself
would become unjust. Moreover
it is indisputable that tbere can
be no government unless its man
dates are accepted by the. citixen-
Bhip of the Republic. This ob
servation relates more particular
VT to the railroad situation
When the mining situation be
came menacing; I InTited repre-
ocummcj . Q4 in6 mine workers
and the operators to a conference
They came toggther. they . were
aavisea as to the call of common
welfare, yet in, eight days of op-
porronuy no progress was 'made.
In the absence of nr trthnnai

employers the federal government

creatlou of a national' commls

might be settled juitly. fri thd

sions of our modern cfvlllzatinrf
Instead of contemplating the re
sort to force, I anticipated th
very opposite-r-lndustrfal peace
with justice to every man con
cerned. Instead of aiming at "Ifi
voIunUry servitude," " to Which
you Inexcusably refer, the rot
eminent asked the mine workers
to resume theTr acCMeies. In re
sponse to a manifest Dubllc-need
at precisely the same wage had
been working contentedly for the
last two years; Those who spoSe
for the mine workers refused
such appeal. There Is no dispute
to the right to refuse. Since they
decHned to respond.' and "since It
is believed there are enough men
who love this 'country " and cher
ish its securitv. and believn in
serving the common welfare, to
come to the relief of the mininc
situation and avoid sufferintr. nri-
Tatlon and paralysis; I asked the
governors of the coal mining
states to 'Invite mine operators
and ' mine workers - to : resume
their activities swd to promise
that to which everr man la eri
titled, namely protection in his
jawrui pursuits This, protection
applies to the men oa strike who

lawtaBy at work and entitled to
protection by every agency of

yon mean to challenge the right
eoasness of free men to be pro
tected in their lawful pursuits
against interference and violence,
I will be glad to join you in sub
mitting, that question to the Am
erican people. "
Opposed to Class Conflict
"I vant yon to know that In
stead of the government's action
being an expression of the prefer
ence of the capitalistic class. It
has been quite as much opposed
by those who speak tor employ
ers as It Is by .ypa and yonr as
sociates. Government Undertakes
to represent neither class alone,
and is opposed to all conflict am
ong classes, and disputes the
right of any group or . classj or
ganized or unorganized, to Im
peril American welfare. Gov
ernment speaks only for the Am
erican people as a whole and the
common good of all its citiien
ship. -
"In view of all that the gov.
eminent has done or attempted to
do during the past year and a halt
to relieve the American farmer
from the burdens of readjustment
and to relieve labor from the
hardshiifi of unemployment. I
know your attempted appeal to
American prejudice will fall upon
deaf' ears. It is ungrateful and
it Is untruthful. If yon are the
believer in. peace and harmony
and the reign of justice, which
you would have believed, I In
vite you now to pass judgment
on the failure of the mine work
ers to accept the awards of an
able and impartial commission In
determining the merits of the dis
pute between coal miners and
coal operators, and I invite you
to urge the striking railway
workers to accept the decision of
the American railroad labor
board, acting under authority of
the law which must be supreme,
and return to work under that
decision, until you , and I, and
everyone else Interested in Amel
can welfare, may join In asking
the railroad labor board to give
a hearing on any question con
cerning which there is. reasonable
