Say among the heathen that the Lord reigneth: the world also
shall be established that H shall not be moved: He shall judge the
people righteously. Psalm 96:10.
The Salem Y. M. C. A. directors and a few outside men
in an advisory capacity, including Harry Stone, general sec
retary of the Portland Y; M. C. A., spent several hours in
conference last evening, listening to reports of activities and
planned activities, and engaging in a discussion concerning
the work of this institution for the coming year

LOOKING AHEAD 73 YEARS
Dean Inge, known to the headline writers as England's
"crlnnmv rlean ' nrpdirts thf decav of Euroue bv 2000 A. D.
By that time, he says, a federation of the Latin-American
republics and the United States will comprise the two great
world powers, while Europe will be relatively unimportant,
with the possible exception of Russia.
; Austria and Germany, he thinks, will unite to form a
' buffer state whose function will ,be to prevent western
; Europe from being overrun by the Slavs.
Commenting on the prediction of Dean Inge, the Eugene
T Register says in part: "The pages of history prove to us that

the empire of Persia arose. The Persian suit set, and the

' ander drank himself into the grave and the Roman empire
arose, being preceded by the Roman republic, which really
x was never .much of a .repubUc. as we know republics today.
"Rome declined and fell, as Gibbon i tells us at length in his
great work, and western Europe climbed to world suprem
acy upon the ruins.' 'As Itn interlude iri the story, Genghis
Khan achieved a place in the

.And ideals are not faf behind. The world is one com

is proposed in the making of the debenture smaller, vjrith in
creasing production. ! There are a number of substitutes proi
posed for the McNary-Haugen idea; but they all eome-'to the
same thing in different ways. The fact is that the McNary
Haugen bill was changed very little while in its progress in
both sessions of congress; in the one in which it failed and
the one by which it was passed, and vetoed by the president.
In some form or other, it is reasonably certain that the idea
will be adopted, possibly by the next congress. It is the only
workable idea that is certain to give farm relief And an

whether her sister just up and

her, and perhaps it's just the time
when he shouldn't desert her. It

but I'll stand by the house, in all
the essentials. If you take that

said Charitas. "When my hus
