manity." He set Sunday, next, as
Red Cross Sunday, and suggested
that churches devote that day to em
phasizing the "gospel of service."

that could be desired. From the first

The earner jubilee Singers were
lie bright stars that sclntilat j on the
'ocal Chautauqua platform the thirti
OVening. From start to finish they
had the audience with them being
compelled to raspond to numerous
encores, with which they were ven
liberal. They gave both operatic and
concert numbers, as well as indulg
ing in a large number of negro cam!
meeting selections and songs of th(
siiinny Southland, which are dear ti

Last evening before a crowded
house, Dr. J. Franklin Babb gave hi:
great inspirational lecture, the IOC
per cent Man." To say It surpassed
anything previously given here in
I.aConner, either on the Chautauqua
or any other lecture platform would
be speaking the gospel truth. It wa
a masterpiece, being replete with
wit, wisdom, and logic.
Mr. Babb lias a keen analytical
mind, grasps tne greni luuaaiuenuu
. . j i i
lilies of the (lay, uraws iuuui
lessons from the past, and sees Into
the future. He drew vivid pictures
of the lawyer, the doctor and the
minister. The doctor believes in
lilting up humanity and narrated
he case of a church member in
Massachusetts that had temporarily
fallen into temptation. The official
board wanted to expel him, but he
lemurred and admonished them to
give him another chance and to vote
him their faith for his future con
duct. It had splendid results.
He told of his experience In France
and his desire to help the soldier
boys. He made a strong point, when
he said that the Armistice Day should
not have been made when It was,
for In nine days more the American
I'tnops could have marched Into Ber
lin and dictated peace terms. in
losing he said: "I Introduced you
to Jesus of Nazareth, the only 100
per cent man that has ever lived

When a feller loves his neighbor
like the ten commandments means
it lifts ut OOl&mon people to the
slaue of kinus an' queens; there's
music tloatin' everywhere, on every
halmv hraeie an' the harmony Is
echoed by the robins in the trees.
The devil never camps around
lovln' neighborhood, an' there ain't
no "latest gossip" to pizen people's
blood, but there's borrowin' an' lend
in' with a willin' heart an' hand, an
a wholesome lendln' sperit that th
children understand
1 never liked to he areared or
trampin' some ones toes, nor to see
a skyward angle onto Mrs. Hen
peek's nose,--an' the time when I
was sickest which it lasted more'n
a week, was when I jawed at Hilklns'
an' neither wouldn't speak.
There's lots of sorry pastime that
associates will gall, but fussjn' with
neighbor Is the sorriest of 'em all.
Hie first unit would develop 180,000
iorse power at a cost of approximate
ly $i 0,040,000. When the plant was
fully developed the cost would be
fl0.25 per primary horse power and
.6.15 per secondary horse power an
nually which would be materially
educed if federal aid were given in
the development of the project. The
arket for the secondary power de
veloped by the first unit could be
found in the pumping of water to
the irrigable lands adjacent to the
power site in the Boardman and
Horse Heaven district. Before the
final completion of the project to its
full capacity of 500,000 horse power
Additional markets would have to be
ound for the additional power.
The estimated cost of development
of the Boardman area of 50,000
acres for irrigation would be $75.72
per acre as against present costs
from i92 to $110 per acre and as
against from $125 to $17 5 per acre
for the John Day under the original
plan. A total of 59,000 horse power
would be necessary to develop the
lloardman section.
Aside from the irrigation feature
I the construction of a dam would im
prove the navigation of the Colum
bia river by drowning the rapids
above Umatilla. This would make
possible the development of river
freight lines of steamers and barges
which would improve marketing of
the Inland Empire wheat, hay, live
stock and fruit in and through Port
land, and make It possible also to
realize something on the millions in
vested in the Celilo canal which now
passes one or two boats per year,
usually a government dredge.
t'lieap Power Possible
Cheap power would be made possi
ble immediately to be used in the ir
rigation development mentioned
above, but later for the development
of manufacturing. At the costs esti
mated of the $10.26 for primary and
$8.15 for secondary enterpr ises would
be drawn from all sections of the
United States and the Columbia ba
sin become one vast Industrial center,
the manufactured products of which
would concentrate at Portland for
distribution. Railway transportation
would be greatly Improved with the.
use of this power. Not only would
the service be cleaner, but It would
be more reliable, and vast numbers
of cars now utilized for hauling coal
would be released for other forms of
traffic. Such improved conditions
would be reflected in the increase in
the value of taxable properties al
lowing more funds for civic improve-J
mentis in the way of roads, schools, l
and public buildings. Home condi
tions would come in for a share o!
the general advancement. Electrical
appliances, lighting, heat, etc., would
so improve the home life that enernj
and time and money would be avail
able for general culture which woultl j
reflect itself in a brighter civili74i-!
Cost Reasonable
Now these things are shown to be
feasible. The cost is reasonable anil
with state ami federal co-operation j
cheap money could be secured for !
the work. Probably as low a rate as
5 per cent could be had under such
conditions, while private corpora
tions would have to pay at least 7
or 8 per cent and would have to
operate at a profit while with state
or federal operation there would be
no profit charges.
So far we have sioketi chiefly of
the Boardman area and the area
across the river, Horse Heaven, but
the proposition goes much farther
than that including 20,000 acres near
Tasco, the Page area of 7500 acre;!
east, and the Attalia area of 18,900
acres southeast of Pasco. A trans
mission line would be necessary to
reach these sections and the costs
would range from $71.82 to $80,138
per acre.
We feel that while the Umatilla
rapids site is but cue of a series of
power sites on tliu Columbia, nil of
which are undeveloped, it is the one
site offering' the easiest construction,
and the quickest return on the In
vestment, and at the lowest cost. If
work could be taken up on the pro
ject shortly it would afford a splen
did demonstration for the 1925 Ex
position in Portland.
Would Aid Unemployed
Right now, too, there is a great
question of unemployment. Local
and national conferences are being
held to work out some plan of mak
ing a serious situation easier. We
note that reclamation work on ap
proved projects has been placed be
fore the Washington conference for
consideration. The Boardman pro
ject is established and successful but
we need more water to niing in more
land. If all the irrigable land in
North Morrow county were under ir
rigation, no better section of the
country could be found. With river,
rail and highway transportation, and
a climate second to none, all we need
Is water. Government statistics show
more sunshine between Umatilla and
The Dalles than in Southern Califor
nia and with the development of the
country the warmth and the winds
of summer have become so temper
ed that they are agreeable rather
than otherwise, and the winters are
mild and delightful.
