' f , Cheap Urban Food A WRITER in the Christian xjl" the question: Is cheap food dwellers who must depend for food on products Drougnt m from the country. Freauent statistics are shown giving the - "spread" Jaetween the price the the farmer receives-for his-work m producrnir the raw ma teriaL In general the farmer is the consumer dollar, with 67 transportation charges. rTbe ments to cut down the middleman'a margin, so the farmer "may get more and the consumer was the plan to send butter, eggs, etc., from the farm to the consumer direct by parcel post This was hailed as a way to eliminate the middleman J yet the plan has failed, it simply cannot be organized on a big enough scale. There is consider able direet selling by grower through peddling from house to house, but this is limited ; and many times the farmer finds he has little to pay for his time of peddling. So this author concludes: ; "Direct marketing does not solve the- distribution problem of most -producers. Ordinarily It is an expensive system having more sentimental than practical value., Consumer cooperatives have ing instead with almost 100 per authority. So the author is quite ity for "cheap f ood , . "The cost of distribution varies with the services involved In distribution. Anyone who attempts a wholesale venture In cheap ened distribution" without knowledge of this fact is almost cer tain to see hia experiment wrecked. It is a hard and Jagged fact that the-distribution process is often more difficult than is the producing process." Sometimes when we go to the markets and price the goods, especially produce, we wonder at the prices being as low as they are. It is easy to complain overhigh prices; yet if we stand off and examine the elements of cost: transpor tation handling, various stages of processing from mere .weighing and bundling to elaborate manufacture, more ship ping and handling and selling at retail, we may see that the merchandising system is in many respects wonderfully effi cient. - And there is no limit on enterprise. Any person who can think up a new plan for cutting a few cents off of marketing an article has his fortune made, in retailing, or shipping or manufacturing. This is a day of narrow profit margins, with success going to the one giving the most of the best for the money; Even Sec. Wallace has been brave enough to admit that the distributiwg- system for foods is doing a pretty good job of it, though he did score the milk distributors in some of ' the large cities for excessive profits. Middlemen are quite universally denounced as profiteers and as useless adjunts of production. Yet with every opportunity people have not been able to alter the distributing system very much, although the field of the wholesaler and jobber has been curtailed greatly since chain stores or affiliated independent stores buy more directly from producer Br manufacturer. The writer of the article referred to, while concluding that "the immediate prospect of reducing prices of farm pro duce in general isnot bright", offers three suggestions: first, urban buyers may inaugurate buyers unions, "but it must be borne in mind that buyers'-cooperatives have to work against tremendous odds"; seconds higher wages for city workers which would make the costs less burdensome; third, "from past experience it would seem that the producer can do more t than the consumer to reduce food costs. The success of the California orange growers in simultaneously reducing the cost of oranges to consumers and increasing the producers' share of the profit is noteworthy." To the consumer out of a job food prices are always high; but relatively speaking during the depression food prices have been very low. In fact "price raising" is one of the objectives of devaluation of the dollar. When once infla- - Hon really gets a grip, we may see such a rise in prices that urban consumers will cry for mercy as they did in 1919-1920 when the "high cost of living" became the wicked dragon in s all political platforms. i . f Austria's Struggle mAKE western Oregon from the Cascades to the sea. add .

HENDRICKS The terrible story of the Whitman massacre: (Continuing from yesterday:) We had been at Warlilatpn just fire weeks when the fatal 29th of November came. A number of em igrant famines had stopped for the winter, expecting to go on in the spring to the Willamette val ley. They brought the measles with them. That year the Indians had been more troublesome than usual. Many of them had the measles and their mode of treat ment was nearly always fatal to the patient. They would take a sweat bath and then Jump into'' the cold water. Of course death was the result. We also had the measles. My mother came near dying and we buried her babe on the 14th of November. w s s "My sister. In her sixth year. died on the 24 th. Her memory brings to my mind a scene which cannot forget. An Indian came into the room where the form of my sister lay. Mrs. Whitman asked leave to show him the dead child. She wanted the Indians to know the measles were killing the white people as well as the Indians and thus hoped to allay, the growing distrust of the red men. The Indian looked long at my sister, then cruelly he laugh ed, to see' the pale face dead. The good doctor and his noble wie were kept busy night and day to care for the sick and dying. S . "At last came the fatal. 29th. The school, which was taught by Mr. Saunders, a lawyer from Wis consin, and which had been closed on account of sickness,- was re opened that day. (It was Monday afternoon.) Three men, Messrs. Kimball, Hoffman and Canfield, were dressing a beef. Father, who had been out to get a bucket of water, remarked that there were more Indiana about than usual but thought It was because they had killed, the beef. Mother had gone in to Mrs. Whitman's room to see Hannah Sager and Helen Meek, who were sick with the measles.. Both irl3 died a few days later. It was the- first time that mother had walked across the- room for three weeks. The doctor, who- was sitting by the stove reading, was called into the kitchen to give a sick Indian some medicine. The. sudden and contin uous firing of guns was the first alarm. "Mrs. Whitman began to cry and the children to scream. Moth er said. 'Mrs. Whitman: what is the matter?' She replied. The -In dians are going to kill us all. to overthrow Dollfuss and set up a nazi rule friendly to Ger many. France has poured in money and materials, so has Italy, to support the Dollfuss regime. ThlTstruggle against nazi influence has thrown Dollfuss more and more into the hands of the Austrian fascist movement with its Heimwehr, and Dollfuss has assumed more and more the role of a dicta tor. The social democrats of the cities feared fascist power, even though anti-nazi, because they felt it meant crushing their labor movement, their trade unions, and meant a dic tatorship which would be dominated by one or the other of the outside powers. T The civil war has been bloody and deplorable. The losS of life was heavy, and the destruction of valuable property, for example the Karl Marx apartment house, was calamitous. Undoubtedly this structure was destroyed to break the pride of the social democrats,-who made this structure not only the largest, but the best model of community dwelling house in Europe; Its name too was hateful to the peasant party headed by Dollfuss and to the Heimwehr, although the Austrian so cial democrats are not Russian communists by any means., Seemingly the "rebellion" has been crushed ; but the cost for Austria will be terrific It may pave the way to fascism Now all that Hitler neefls is to continue to "bore from with in? until he dominates the fascist rule in Vienna. Perhaps the bubbling caldron of European politics will not boil over nowj but it may easily happen that Austria may once more be the factor to stsst bugles to blowing all over Europe, - Mother came back into our room and told ns what was being done. Mrs. Whitman called out to fasten the doors and father took a flat iron from the fireplace and drove a na.l above the latch on the out side door of our room. Then he seated himself on a box by the foot of the bed on which' lay my brother, John, sick with measles. Mother sat near the head of the bed and I was between them. Mrs. Whitman came in soon after for water. Mr. Kimball had been wounded and had fainted. She came back a second time, asked for my father and said, 'My hus band is dead and I am left a wi dow.' She returned to her room wringing her hands and saying, "That Joe; that Joe. He has done it all.' S "This Joe Lewis was a half breed Indian of fU repute who had crossed the plains that year from the Red river country. He, it was, instead of Mr. Rogers, who told the Indians that the doctor was poisoning them. Some late writers claim that Mr. Rogers made this statement to save his life at the time of the massacre. They base their claims, as also in other instances, upon unreliable Indian testimony and the state ment of a priest who did not even claim to be a witness of the events narrated. None of the whites pres ent at the time the statement was claimed to have been made ever made such an assertion. Joe Lew is and an Indian named Cup-ups came around the house and broke our window with the butts of their guns. Mrs. Whitman, and those in her room, had gone up stairs.' "I had spoken twice to father and said,. 'Let's go under the floor.' He did not answer me, but when the Indians began breaking 1n the doors of the adjoining room he opened the floor, which was made of loose boards, and we were soon concealed beneath. In a few minutes our room was fuU of Indians, talking and laughing as if It were a holiday. The only noise we made was my brother, Alex, two years old. When the Indians came .into our room and were directly -over our heads he said, 'Mother, the Indians are tak ing an of our things.' Hastily she clapped her hands over his mouth and whispered that he must be still. I .have 'often been asked how J; i leit wnen nnaer tne noor. i can not tell, but do remember how hard my. heart beat, and how large the ventilation holes in the adobe walls looked to me. They were probably only three or four Inches wide and a foot long, but they seemed very large to me when I could see the Indiana close on the other side. The Indians tried to follow those who had gone up stairs, hut were kept back by a broken gun being pointed at them. They then per suaded them to come down, say ing that they were going to burn the' house. S S "Mrs. Whitman- fainted when she fame and saw the doctor dy ing. She was placed on a settee and carried by Mr. Rogers and an Indian. At the door Mr. Rogers saw the circle of Indians with their guns ready to shoot, and, dropping hia end of the settee, ex claimed, 'My God, we are betray ed. A volley from the waiting sav ages was his answer, and both he and Mrs. Whitman were mortally wounded. The Indians then told Joe Lewis that if he was on their side he must kill Francis Sager to prove it. Francis was my school mate and about fourteen years old. (A member of the Sager fam ily told the Bits man he was 15.) We heard him cry to Lewis, 'Oh, Joe, don't shoot me,' and then the crack of the gun as Lewis proved his loyalty to the red men. b V "As soon as it became dark the Indians left for their lodges, of which a number were near. Ev erything became still. It was the stillness of death. All we could hear was the dying groans of Mr. Rogers, who lay within six feet of us. We heard him say, 'Come Lord Jesus, come quickly.' After ward he said faintly, 'Sweet Je sus.' Then faint and, fainter came the moans until they ceased al together. Thus died my first teacher. s s s "We lay beneath the floor un til about 10 o'clock that night, then came out and tried to find some wraps and something to eat." (Continued tomorrow.)

It was a quick, sweetly com pelling little smile and it dazzled his eyes and struck a sort of sweet terror into his soul. Somewhere a dock struck one solemn note and he jumped up and insisted upon making coffee over spattering gas ring, it was sur prisingly good coffee and they drank it and ate some rather stale rolls.
