JOY iN THE mil
(By Frank I Stanton.)
There's Joy, my dear, in the noon o' the year,
When the harvest hints of Bold, i
And the soft sun streams with its gleams and dreams
On your beautiful hair unrolled:
There's Joy, my dear, for the world Is fair,
- And Ixive ia the brightest blossom there!
There's Joy, my dear, in the pray o' the year,
When the snows are drifting white.
And the cold winds cry to the starless sky, (
And the last rose weeps "Goodnight!"
There's Joy. .my dear, for the world is fair, .'
And lve like a lily is blooming there: v ,

A CHANCE FOR REAL EMPIRE BUILDING .
DEVELOPMENT of the Columbia at Umatilla rapids
would produce such tremendous benefits in so many
different ways that when one stops to think of it there
is room for amazement that the people of this section have given
so little attention to the usbject in the past.
While irrigation stands out as the foremost initial obiect to
be attained the power that could be developed would serve
needs equally as great if not greater in other lines. The fuel
supply i a problem in Eastern Oregon. Our coal and oil must
. he shipped inj from other states and the price is consequently
high. On top of this the oil supply is running low and no one
knows how long the supply will last. .
v The development of electric power at Umatilla rapids
v. ould relieve this situation. Cheap power can be used for heat
ing purposes and for cooking as well as for lisrhtincr and manu
facturing. There is probably sufficient potential electric power
at the JJmatilla rapids that if made use of it could take care of
the needs of this whole region, wheat belt as well as the irri
gated section.. Think what a saving that would be in money
and in labor? Think what a convenience electric heat would be.
The energy is there, why not use it? The' stock question in
the past regarding Columbia river power development has been,
what to do with the power when generated. Is not the answer
available as far as the Umatilla rapids scheme is concerned? Do
rot irrigation needs, plus the domestic and industrial necessities
and the certainty of an eventual railroad need answer the ques
tion? There are many who take the affirmative of this subject and
believe that it is time to get busy. People in the irrigated section
are planning a meeting soon to discuss the matter. They are en
titled to the help of all who want this region to go forward and
necessarily there wiM be hard, painstaking work ahead in order
to put over a proposition of this sort.
Jo bring about the development of electrical power at Uma
tilla rapids is the biggest task this region has to face or ever will
face. It is an opportunity for real empire building and the facts
so far known justify thorough study with a view to getting ac
tion in one way or another .
AZATLAN THE INDIAN BABYLON
THE prehistoric relics discovered near Celilo on the Colum
bia and which recently attracted so much interest, seem
overshadowed by a greater find; that has been made in
Wisconsin. An ancient ceremonial city, now, known as Azat
lan, has revealed traces of having been inhabited by people of
relatively high culture. " " -
Some interesting facts about the ancient city are contained
in a story in the Dearborn Independent: ' - ' ".- "
As the excavations vrogresg and one truth is piled upon another belief be
comes an established fact that at Azatlan, Wisconsin; there once gathered at
this ceremonial meeca, .Indian tribes from the entire Northwest perhaps as
ot.r ancestors crowded in crusades to the Holy Land. Here their greatest
Upper Mississippi Valley earthworks were built, basketful of earth upon bask
etful from the surrounding fields, almost the task of an age whenlssuch simple
methods of transportation must be utilized; here center all the old Indian trails
to other localities; fiere are still to be round unmistakable evidences of courtly
scenes and inspiring religious ceremonials and gruesome evidence of human sac
rifices probably war captives were boiled in kettles, devoured in canahalistic
fashion and their broken bones heaped in the camp refuse with those of fish
For eighty years Azatlan has been a strange name to conjure with. It was
named by its first discoverer, who believed that it must have been a deserted
vlilage of the Aztecs. In 13S it lacKed only two votes of being chosen as the
capital seat of Wisconsin. Then came Increase A. Latham, scientist, father
ft the weather bureau, and with chain and compass gthered some of the ma
terial facts about Azatlan which when published made te deserted village fa
mous even In Europe as among the western world's antiquities. It Is said that
until recently scholars In foreign countries have actually shown more interest
In the .Azatlan mounds than people of Wisconsin themselves. The late Profes
sor James D. Butler, of the Clversfty of Wisconsin, in a eries of historical ar
ticles refers to the fact that w hen traveling in Europe he met more Inquiries
regarding Wisconsin's greatest aboriginal ruin than he met in his own state.
Like the more famous Indian earthworks, the establishment at Azatlan was
elected on a beautiful water scene. The main inclosure was a huge parallelo
gram, with the Rock River as one of its sides.' The north wall was 631 feet;
the et, opposite the river. 1.419 feet and the south 703 feet a field of nearly
eighteen acres. The wall width is givn as mor than 22 feet and the height
from one to five feet. Along- the outer edge of its entire length were rountld
projections which have been frquently referred to as "buttresses or bastions"
but which scientists have since determined "were never designed for cither of
the purposes indicated by these names."
Inside the inclosure, within the northwest and southwest angles, were two
flat-topped rectangular, truncated, pyramidal mounds, the level tops measur
ing from 6 Oto C 5 feet. ,
''Also within were a number nf excavations, besides conical mounds, em-
rc.'tnitmenis ana oiner eartnworKs, some ot wni-n our present knowledge en
able ps to identify as very probably effigy or c-blematic mounds," says C. E.
llrown. secretary of the. Wisconsin Archaeological Society.
Outside the inclosure were originally 14 mounds and a number of em-t-'ankments,
all located on the we-t bank of the river, while on the east bank
of the river were formerly two long embankments, two small inclosures, and
twenty-two mounds. All these were apparently directly connected with the
li.tloture and the whole together formed a uii'que but one of trie largest and
one of the most important of the many ancient earthworks of America.
The scientists who have investigated the ground carefully
p.ssert their belief that the walls of Azatlan were not intended
for defensive purposes in war but rather as part of the setting
for great religious ceremonies carried on by the prehistoric in-
If we could, by some miraculous process, draw back the veil
by which the past is hidden, with what scenes-might we be re
galed. Looks like the peace plan of the new administration will take
I he form of urging a world court But can the United States,
Japan or any other power stop further navy building on the
theory that they can find protection in a scheme that was of no
avail against war in 1914?
The Oregonian thought the Orca had made the trip to Port
land when as a matter of fact the big ship was at Astoria, Good
thing for the metropolis to play second fiddle occasionally.
