Communication in Society
How shapeless and motley are the problems

In hi review for 11648 Chefter I. Barnard,
president of the. Rockefeller Foundation notes
the need of a clear-cut reclassification of the
problem of modern socety under three head
ings: population, communication and coopera
tion. Iat yir the' Foundation appropriated
ovfr $14,000,000 to studies which have some
hearing on those thr-e.
y Sinc; jvorld-widi; ovt r-population underlies
nwnv critical national. -class andjacial conflicts,
th Foundation is sponkoring df-mographical re
search: When science reduces death rates and
hinh b-rth rates sre nrf longer necessary, do sex
ual drives thus b'come one of the major mal
sd just menM of nrK-irty? What about the relation
of human populations to their environment?
Hw 1-drv.more efficient ue of natural resources
ond more effective roofration in production be
brought about? Is "tocial engineering" any
ioVlirnrale attempt to bring population into sat
Kfactorv relation to resources and vice versa
feasible? '
Peonle 'who misunderstand each other don't
get alont; very well. Hence, the Foundation's in
terest in the' fault and limitations of communi
cation that' are fundamental to the ills of society.
Projects in language, political science, history
and the arts are. underway.
The importance of Cooperation is obvious but
liMlf is known abiut men's capacity for colla
boration. Some questions: What is the bearing
ot Endocrinology or pa'hclogy on the moral as
amiufMnt humar behavior? What is the re
levancy or, the application of ancient codes of
.individual behavior-to modern corporate action?
with the control of the speed of rotation of the
ejrth, of its revolution about the sun? Shall we
also learn to control the, rfiain reaction in the
sun whence comes all our life and power? Pride

only disaster if they are ndt done In the humil
ity appropriate to our ignorance, never forget

A New Detroit
Resid.-jnts of Detroit in the North Santiam
country. jwant a replacement for their commun
ity whiclfi will be flooded ofjt when the reservoir
back of. petroitjdam fills. t"hey will be compen
sated of bourse for their property losses, but they
want the assurance of a new Detroit, above the
waterlinjp. j
And why not? There a rj good sites available
in the vicinity and a settlement is needed near
the forki of. the North Santiam and the Breiten
bush. Highway traffic will be heavy when the
road is Completed; the Xorests will provide oc
cupation indefinitely, so a; town is needled.
Local people have petitioned the army engi
neers to lay out a new tovn. Whether the corps
win undertake this assignment is uncertain: hut
community leaders can dy- the job if the engi
neers wjll not, selecting a desirable area, acquir
ing land and platting it ijor town purposes. A
new Detroit can be designed to be a lovely spot
in the valley, with the griat pool of the dam in
front and the green-clad fnountaini all around.

Gamble Cure
By the Barrel
Br Henry MeLemore
It was Curing the running of
the fifth at Belmont that I read
of the Los Angeles grandmother
who is taking shots in the arm
to cure her of gambling fever.
(I can always read during the
running of a race because a sec
ond after the ponies have broken

It seems that L-,
the California 'f
grand mother
started to care
more for the
ooktr t a ble
than the dinner MeLemors
table, and was losing so much ;
trying to fill straights that her ;
husband had to ask the court
to prescribe the drug treatment.
I am very anxious to find out
the name of the drug that Gran
ny is taking, and whether or not
. it is available on the market. If
it is, I want to place an order
for five or six barrels of the
stuff, and a hypodermic needle
the size of a fire hose nozzle.
Then I wn start giving myself
a ualbn or two a day, with or
; without a doctor's order. As a
matter of fact, f will drink the
mixture, with or without a
chaser, before meals and Just be
fore retiring.
Not that I am a chronic gam
bler, mind you, but I happen 'o
be a man who can't "win at any
garrie of rhance. The marb'es I
lost shooting for "keeps" as a kid
should have taught me to Uy
: off, but it didn't, and through the
years I have had my pride and
pocketbook beaten to a pulp.
The most classic example of
my being unable to win came
years ago when I was a sports
writer and was in a celebrated
far-western town to make an ad
dress. The sheriff of this wide-;
open city took a liking to me and
said that if 1 cared to risk a lit-;
tie money he could almost guar
antee that I would win.
This teemed a smart and
porting proposition, so I Jumped
at the chance like a weasel for a
pullet. We made the rounds, and
the more rounds we made the ;
worse luck I enjoyed, even
though the sheriff gave me a
nice introduction in each place
and always v. hispered something
in, the proprietor's ear. '
I tried blackjack, roulette,;
birdcage, poker, and the crap
table, and always came up
empty. .
Finally, the sheriff told me
that, by gum and by gollv. he
knew a game I could win at and
would see to it that I did. I said
something like, "Lead me to itj

brother." and we wound up in
an establishment that featured
a game where you bet on which
hole a mouse would run into
when released.
r The sheriff had a talk with the
manager, and then told me that
for my benefit the game was
going to be fixed when I played.
. I told the sheriff that I- could
n't go for such a thing that it
was unfair. He said no, it wasn't
unfair, because no one else would
b? playing the game but myx
I asked how the game would
be fixed.
"One of the holes has been
bait-d with Liedeikranz cheese."
he told me. "Any mouse is
bound to run for thatjLiie in

The Safety
To the Editor:
I read in your paper the man
ager of the city busses is trying
for another increase in has farx
be now wants 35 cents for two
rides. Just how long does he think
the public is going to be "gypped"
by him. Why doesn't he charge 50
cents and be through with raising
fares that's what he will
charge before he is through.
When he got Mr. Wyatt's hases
pushed out "everyone knew the
city buses would raise their
prices, but I and lots of others
think they are going too far. It
just shows what the big shots
ran do to the little fellow that
is trying to get ahead, 90 per
tent of the bus riders where
quite content with Mr. Wyatt'S
buses. Jneres one thing, you
could always depend on him
coming on schedule, but the city
buses change their schedules so
much no one knows when they
are coming, and while I am on
the subject of buses why don't
"they get some courteous drivejrs
for a change? I was riding on tha
bus one day last week and a
young woman with a baby in
her arms was hurrying to catch
the bus but do you think the
driver would wait for her? No sir,
and she wasn't 100 feet away,
and that often happens. They
won't "wait a second for anyone
unless of course it. was the
manager of the buses. Hasn't
he noticed since he raised the
fare. 15 cents one way he hasn't
had near the riders he used to
have; what does he expect when
he raises the fare again? I sin
cerely hope no one rides unless
they just have to, until they drop
the fares instead of raising them.
I sincerely advise anyone living
near the Silverton road to ride
the Silverton-Salem bus into
town which is much cheaper and
you get there lots quicker.
Yours for giving the little gul?
a break.
4150 Silverton road
which is the Liederkranz one."
I went for all I had. Out came
the mouse full of mouseful en
ergy. He Circled the cage, snif
fing. He came to No. 6, and if I
have ever seen a look of disgust
on a mouse's face, it was on
that mouse's as he got a whiff of
the Liederkranz. His whiskers
dropped, his ears sagged, his tail
straightened, and he reared up
on his hind legs. Then he dart
ed or hole No. Lon the opposite'
side of the cage and disappeared.
"Sheriff," I said, "I don't want
to hurt your feelings, but that
most have been a house mouse.
Either that, or I am so unlucky
I drew the one mouse in the
world who doesn't like cheese."
