THE OREGON STATESMAN, SALEM, OREGON
SUNDAY MORNING, FEBRUARY 3, 1924
" We bare Just fieard of a farmer
luring north of Salem who waB con
siderably,, shocked, recently. He
ha natural ear for music and
80 haVliIs wife, but on the ranch
they are seldom able to Indulge
' this taste since' the only musical
instrument at hand Is -a leaky ac
cordian belonging to a neighbor.
Recently this farmer read that
- tjie air was full of, music waiting
only to be shunted into his home
via radio set. He was so ex
cited he couldn't sleep nights after
that. He ordered a radio set. one
of the - best,-and insisted on the
highest poles and quickest instal
lation ever witnessed in Oregon.
His temperature went up two de
grees before everything was in and
the great moment arrived.
I Finally the loud speaker began
to breathe softly. Then a carrier
wave sounded. The man twirling
; the knobs said, "Now,-listen to
ine farmer listened. A man s
Tolce rumbling with authority is
sued from the loud speaker., "Dark
heavy hens, a little easier."
, That was probably, the: maddest
' man .ever seen in the" state for
about a minute until the man at
the knobs recovered sufficiently to
produce the music pronto.
. Through the Westinghouse com
pany there has been announced an
Invention of Dr. Phillips Thomas
by means of. which sounds beyond
the j-ange.of the human ear can
be recorded and therefore studied!
This discovery was made during
a course of experiments - under
taken . with & vieW to improving
radio broadcasting. ' There are
sounds teo high pitched ancr other
.sounds' too low pitched for the
ear to distinguish bnt well within
sthe limited range of sounds that
are audible to bur ears, are sounds
of such' rates of vibration that the
broadcasting microphone cannot
perfectly reproduce them. This
new device Insures perfect broad
casting of all sounds regardless of
f if vibration. jXo doubt all
stations before long Will be equip
ped with this Invention..
Make this yoar motto: "I Will

Romantic Character, Pensioned
Today by S. P., Vows to Aid Poor
Out at the Southern Pacific car
shops this afternoon at 3 o'clock
Juels Morrioies (Joe Morris)
turned in his final time card after
serving continuously for more
on a pension and possessor of a
than 41 years. Now old "Joe" is
free life insurance policv for
Joe has a home at Yaquina and
there he ia going to spend the rest
of his days in peace and quiet,
save possibly when he decides to
do a little traveling, for he has a
pass on all S. P. lines and is priv
liged to go and come as he will
free of cost.
The tale of Joe's life resembles
fiction. Born in Marseilles, France,
he arrived in San Francisco at the
age of IS. He could neither lead
nor write, nor car. ae to this day,
and he knew not a soul on this
side of the sea. But in 1SS1 he
secured employment with the rail
road in the Siskiyou mountains
when the work of constructing the
Siskiyou tunnels was under way.
That task finished Joe and his
partner flipped a coin to decide
whether to return to San Fran
Cisco or come to Oregon, resulting
in their going to Yaquina. During
the years that followed Joe worked
on Yaquina bay tugs and for the
Oregon-Pacific railroad, later the
Corvallis and Eastern.
Of his sea life old Joe tells
graphically of battling through
heavy seas and of narrow escapes
from death. On one occasion
while Joe was employed as a deck
hand aboard the tug "Resolute"
they were towing a soa-going ves-
were lowing a soa-going ves-
cl into port. It was in the dead
IN CENTRAL STATES
of winter and a terrific storm was
raging. Unable to keep the two
line taught, it finally became en
tangled in the propeller. For a
time it seemed certain that both
steamer and tug must go on the
rocks, when Joe, armed with a
hack saw, crawled over the stern
of the tug and grasping the pro
peller under one arm for support,
commenced sawing the hauser
free. Due to the great swells the
man was forced to work complete
ly submerged, stopping to gasp for
a breath of air as the stern was
lifted high on the Crest of a swell.
The work was finished after 20
minutes of desperate effort.
At another t'..; Joe tells of a
hot headed skipper who insisted
tjiat the anchor be heaved over
despite that fact that the chain
had been removed. It was on the.
Yaquina bar and a heavy sea. was
running when the captain gave the
order. The more Joe tried to ex
plain that the anchor was free the
more enraged did his superior be
come. The anchor weighed sev
eral hundred pounds, but Joe was
a -husky man, and after repeated
protestations, gave in and pitched
the iron overboard. As far as Joe
was able to tell the anchor still re
mains on the bottom of the sea.
Again when the C. and E. rail
road was under construction, a Mr.
Hoag, builder and promoter,
found himself facing 500 angry
Italian section hands who demand
ed their money, of which he had
none. A conspiracy on the part of
the crew to take his life resulted.
They surrounded his house at Ya
quina. As a last resort he dressed
in woman's garb and made as if
he were attending to some chores
about the barn. Old Joe and three
others were waiting close by, took
him to the railroad, boarded a
handcar, and rushed him to Sum
mit, a distance of 46 miles, where
he made good his escape. At the
time Hoag was a debtor to Joe
$600, a part of which he was able
to collect at a later date.
At the age of 72 Joe seems to bc
in the prime of life. By way of
demonstration he placed the heel
of his boot on top of the drive
shaft of a locomotive, several inch
es above his head. Physfcally he
is solid and active as a man of ud.
When he passes into the great
beyond he plans on turning over
his money Tor the aid of the poor
children of Albany Albany Demo

AT UBISH CENTER
Meeting There Yesterday Af.
ternoon Was Interestm;
and Well Attended
The meeting or onion glowers
at Labish Center School house
commencing at o'clock yesterday
afternoon was well attended; ap
parently about all the outstanding
growers in that great onion dis
trict were present.
Present from the Oregon Agri
cultural college were Prof. A. L.
Lovett, entomologist; Prof, fl.' P.
Barss, plant pathologist, and A.
O. B. Bouquet, professor of vege
table gardening. -
To Continue Ilvpei Iinents
It woul dbe hard to find a more
interested audience. Though the
discussions might have appeared
dull to any one not an onion
grower, or one not interested in
onion growing in some way, had
any such been present. . there
were no dull moments, and theTe
were many questions and answers
and side talks, growing out of ac
tual experiences and attempts at
getting more light on points rais
The Oregon Agricultural col
lege people commenced in the La
bish district last year a series of
experiments. Some progress was
made, but not enough to satisfy
either the experts or the growers,
and these experiments will be con
tinued this year, and perhaps in
definitely. Smut, Maggots, Fertilizing
The main experiments are along
the lines of onion smut and onion
maggot control, and the proper
fertilizers for the beaver dam
land of the Labish district.
Prof. Lovett has had and will
have charge of the work of smut
and maggot control; and Prof.
Bouquet will continue the fertiliz
er experiments. v
The onion growers of that dis
trict are themselves up on their
toes. They are well informed
along these lines as any similar
body of men and: women in the
United States. But the conditions
are different there from those
found in any other section: even
different from the conditions
found in the beaver dam land dis
tricts where onions are grown in
Washington county, Oregon. So
the problems of maggot and smut
conrtol and fertilization must be

Various Aspects of Educa
tion Presented By Reed
Various aspects or education
were outlined by Dr. Richard
Scholz, president of Reed college,
Portland, who spoke lor two hours
at the Mario nhotel to members of
the American Association of Uni
versity Women yesterday. Dr.
Scholz is a noted educator, having
spent three years at Oxford in ad
dition to his connections for years
with several of the largest univer
sities of this country.
Stressing; the difference between
schooling and education. Dr.
Scholz declared that he did not
believe in a certain number of
units as a requirement for gradu
ation. Education comes first and
Professional skill is not the
only requirement ot a fun
eral director. He must por
form his sensitive tasks
quietly and unobtrusively,
and in a tactful manner that

"If the rapid increase in enroll
ment is maintained by the state
educational institutions for the
next few years agents will be sent
through the state to collect dona
tions, for the people will not stand
for further taxation," Dr. Scholz
declared. Education must be true
to all life.
"The need for large assembly
rooms is passing and colleges are
no longer attempting to keep up
their laboratories. Instead the
students are being sent out into
the business world to acquaint
themselves with latest methods
and actual conditions in everyday
That the world is shrinking and
that people were being draw n clos
er in neighborhoods but not in
neighborliness was the opinion ex
pressed by the speaker. He de
clared it was impossible for a
Chinese or a Russian to think as
an American thinks. America is
trying to live a national life with
out an international life, he said.
Quoting from ex-President
Woodrow Wilson, Dr. Scholz said:
"Only those who suffer see." He
developed this theme to show that
the work of obtaining an educa
tion is a real task. He held it to
be the business of education to de
velop 1000 .manpower as machin
ery has developed in order to in
crease efficiency. - -
"Democracy is cooperation," Dr.
Scholz iBaid in closing. "At pres
ent the world is coming to this and
the elimination of the middleman
will be enacted in the future. Co
operation is the only real solution
of truly great problems."

at tbe session. Mrs. George" Hug,
