WHAT WILL ELECTRICITY NOT DO?
rrHERE were probably two sensations that were felt by a
majority of the first-night audience at the Chautauqua
Sunday nurht when Bumell Ford perlormed a number ot
experiments to show some of the things that can be accom
plished by electricity. The first sensation, even to those who
may have prided themselves on some knowledge of the great
torce. was one of wonder. The second feeling fn a great many
rases was that the individual hearer undoubtedly lost Borne of
f is complacency and faced the fact that the world is still mighty
4 oung, at least as far as its accomplishments are concerned.
' Just how much wiser will people be, and how much farther
will civilization be advanced when scientists shall have opened
fcome of the fields of knowledge on which now we have no more
than a bare, tantalizing glimpse? To what lengths may we be
expected to go as a result of the studies that are being made now
lot this mysterious force1 known as electricity? The man who
Attempts to answer with any degree of authority can be safety
branded as an ignoramus, because the men who. have" accom
plished most are as one in their assurance that the start has not
vet been made in harnessing power ;
The field is of great interest, even to the" uninformed lay
nan, but he need not feel too helpless when he receives these
fude jars to his pride when he is made to realize keenly his own
lack of knpwledge. There is one problem in the harnessing of
tlectrical power that is right at Pendleton's doorstep, and that
is the proposed project at the Umatilla Rapids. The cheering
information that progress is being made in the survey of the site,
Jiow being conducted by the engineers, is news that is welcome.
jBefore many more months pass the information will be available
for use in forming some estimate of the work that must be done
Jo make the great development dream come true.

Task of Shaping Present

N 1920 the United States mint turned out 405,665,000 bright
new copper .pennies, 82,200,000 nickels and 92,021.000
dimes. It was not because the. volume of business done in
"America required $17,368,750 additional small currency to
Tiajidle it. It is probable that some normal increase was re
quired and some coins undoubtedly retired from active life, hav
ing outlived their usefulness to battered old age. But the cop
per alloy of the penny is a tough substance. Nothing like 400,
000,000 of them wear out in a year. A nickel must pass through
thousands of hands or telephone slots ! before it is worn too
smooth for use. A dime is a mighty useful coin even after it has
become a "thin dime." ............
' The greater part of the coins it was necessary to replace
rere LOST. They were lost in most cases through the careless
ness or lack of thrift of their owners. Americans are far too
prone to let the pennies, nickels and dimes go. , Invested in
Thrift Stamps, the lost coins each year would mean a gain to
the wealth of the nation which would be of appreciable benefit:
Invest your small coins before you lose them. .

WASHIXGTOX, July 12.TT-(George
R. Holmes, I. N. S. Staff Correspond
ent) Here in Washington they are
calling Charley Dawes The Resurrec
tionist." Mr. Webster's dictionary defines
"resurrectionist" as "one who restores,
revives, renovates, or the like."
At first blush the term may seem
a queer appellation to apply to the
volcanic new director of the budget
.ne same ' cussin brigadier" who was
Pershing's right-hand man in running
the business end of .the A. IX F. in
France, and who. upon his return, al
most caused apoplexy- among ' some
staidand dignified Members of con
gress by characterizing their investi
gations into war expenditures "a lot I
of damned rot."
"Hell and Maria!" said Charle
Dawes on that now famous occasion.
"We weren't, trying to keep a set of
tooks; we -were tryingko win a war;"'
The ring of that;, declaration was
heard around Hhe United States, and
it effectually stopped, for the time oe
irg at least, any furtHer criticism of
!y manner in which the A. E. F. spent
in funds. ''.
Now they are calling him "The Res
urrectionist," one who "restores, re
vives and renovates." , Dawes has se.
himself, to the no. inconsiderable ta-jl:
cf restoring economy in government
cpeial on, reviving confidence in the
admlni.i;tration of. the " government's
'josintse and renovating the "whole
shooting match," as h himself would
desc.-iOe it. . ' . . "
. He !icerely believes that it can only
be done, by a recurrence, by a resur
rertioit. or whatever you want to call
it, of the flame of patriotic ardor, dv-
votien and determinat'on on the part
of the public and the officials i:i
Washington, which irtide America's
u.-uled war eifort the wonder cf the
Asks Sow I.cae of Patriotism.
Dtifng the" war. General Dawes
pointed out, everybody dropped nearly
everything except that which ' would
help w'n the war.' Everybody dug in
and .1. nied themselves this or that, or
rerran.e.i from d.ung the other thin?,
nnays with an eye to aiding the
government, always with with an eve
to setting a disagreeable job nccom-i

and unless : r.ielliing is done to rellc e
the situation the system nf government

General I'aives does not believe that
the nation 'can go on spending money
at the rate of J6.oiin.niio.fuin or (7 -
000,000 a year in peace times without',
inviting a crash. The call of public ef.
fort to avert this crash, he. sincerely
believes, is Just as insistent and de
manding as was the call to arms when
f io- oiiuuii hhh cuurotited with the,
i menace of the world conflict.
I Cnnequently there will Soon en out!
from Washington a call to service.
General Dawes wants about thirty or
forty Business men, leaders in their va
rious lines to voluntarily come to.
Washington and devote from three to
five months to the patriotic duty of ',
getting the government's finances and'i
expenditures on an orderly, business )
use oasis. They will serve without
pay and the compensation In public
gratAude j lohalily will not be lare.

Says General Dawes, "!jo the busi
ness men to whom the president will
call I have Just this to say: (
"When the call came to me to take
this place I had the same abhorrence
of the thought of leaving private life
