MACHINE TO STOP LYING
"On to Farmers week" is the call
now being sounded among the pro-
1 gressive fanners of Oregon who are
i planning to attend the first summer
j term Farmers week in the state. A
minimum ol 3,000 has been set by
j the Farmers week committee at the
agricultural college, where Jhe meet
'will be held June 13 to 18.
This date just fills the gap be
I tween the long-term college year
and the summer sessions. The first
day of Farmers week is the very
last day of the college year annual
i commencement of more than 300.
The last day, Saturday, will witness
the arrival of hundreds of tea 'hers
: for summer work.
Rail and automobile excursions,
campus meeting, playground, super
vision lor children, the big new
swimming tank that will almost
make them forget the "old swininiin'
hole," are a few of the side attrac
tions offered along with the solid
instruction and demonstration in
farm and home problems.
Co-operation will be featured as
one of the most important problems

"When anlody tells a lie, his or her heart beat, (alter and t !
blood pressure is intensified." says Lawyer W. M. Marston, of Boston
who invented an.! has just perfected lie-detecting machine. fctWctOfl

The greater part of John D. Rock
efeller's income for 1920 will pro
bably go to the Government through
the operation of the Income and Sur
Taxes, according to the Hackensack,
New Jersey, Record. The Record
roughly estimates Rockefeller's gross
income for 1920 at $43,000,000.
"No one outside the Treasury De
part men t, however, need take any
great satisfaction in the situation,"
the Record continues.
"With all due regard for the use
Mr. Rockefellertnakes of his wealth,
which is on the whole beneficial, It
must be admitted that it in far bet
ter lor 20,000 families to get $2,-
000 a piece, or for 10,000 to get
$4,000 a piece, than for- one family
to get it all It would be better
Also, provided the practice of
slock investment were spread around
along with the money, It would be
faj better economically. The 10,000
or 20,000 families, by pooling their
savings, could provide capital for
big undertakings Just as Mr. Rocke
feller does, only democratically,
without any dangerous centralisa
The tendency Is In that direction
now. The ownership of big corpora
tions is diffused more widely among
the people. Many great fortunes are
tilling up, but along with them Is
developing the system which will
pull them down, through progressive
income and inheritance taxes. It Is
not likely, therefore, that the next
generation will have any Rocke
fellers." The surest way for America to
develop $2,0(10 incomes and to de
velop capitalists among Its citizens
is through saving and safe Invest
ment. That way Is open to all. The
only steps needed are to set aside
1 certain amount from each pa
check and put It Into safe, profit

Have you noticed the marked im
provements in our town'.' Numerous
iota have been levelled and fenced,
some seeded or gardens planted
and how much it helps In beautify
ing the town! II we had a good
auto camp now we'd be all set for
a good advertising campaign. Even
our neighboring town of Irrigon
boasts of an auto camp, which has
received a write up in the daily pa
pers Surely BoardmaO cannot let
Irrigon beat her in that' respect,
even though she may do ho In base
ball. Wonder what our Commercial
Club is doing along that line.
THREE BIRTHDAYS SAME DAY
May 21st by an odd coincidence,
was the birthday of three lloardman
ladies, and in honor of the occasion
Mrs O. H. Warner gave a lielieiOUS
chicken dinner for them: Mrs. Ada
Morrison, Mrs llallenger and Mrs.
Diiigman. The guests present be
sides i In' honor guests and host and
hostess wen- Richard Dlngman, J.
C. Ballenger, ChaH. Goodwin and
Mr. and Mrs. L. Kutzner. All voted
it a pleasant evening and Mr. and
Mrs. Warner royal entertainers.

farewell party for Tuesday evening
for her. The young people with
whom she has been 'associating with
while here were present. A very
pleasant evening was had by the 30
guests present. Numerous games
wen played, and Ice rream and cake
were served. Miss McNeil has al
ways shown such a willing spirit to
help in any community affair that
It has made her very popular with
both old and young.
GOOD TIME AT WIENIE BOAST
Everyone had a good time at the
C E. "Weinie" roast. There weren't
half onuf weinies as the crowd so
far exceeded expectations, but next
time it will be easier to Judge the
amount necessary so as to furnish
plenty, About 48 persons were In
attendance, and though the weinies
were lacking there were any amount
of salads, cake and lemonade which
helped to till the aching voids.
INDUSTRY AND BANKING
Banking problems are largely In
dustrial problems. If the communi
ty prospers, th banker prospers.
To have community prosperity, In
dustrial activity Is necessary to keep
up a constant circulation of money.
To help stabilise business condi
tions, some prominent bankers are
urging merchants and others engag
ed In business to adopt a plan of
a cash reserve, or surplus to tide
i hem over emergency situations and
furnish protection against tempor
ary trade dullness.
Larger business firms have long
followed this practice.
A reserve of this kind would In
crease bank credit and be a valuable
asset for industrial stability in auy
IJtWI It SCHOOL MEETING
The annual school meeting now
looms In Interest. The P. T. A. will
likely endorse one of their number
as a candidate. A good woman
member would bring a valuable view
point to the educational affairs ot
