When the crisis came our people were reacty to turn
their ingenuity toward winning the war. Our minds had
not been blighted by the paralyzing hand of paternalism
as found in such countries as Germany where the govern
ment virtually controls industry and thinks and
acts for its people.
In the face of this record we find the political agitators
attempting to overthrow the whole American doctrine of
government and substitute European forms of collective

OUTLOOK FOR SUGAR BEET PRODUCTION
This is an important problem in the west where one hun
dred beet sugar factories are located.
After failing to produce sufficient beets for two years,
a beet sugar factory has just been moved away from
Grants Pass, Oregon.

GOING FORWARD.
All through the course of man's sojourn on the earth
fealty and romance have maintained their hold upon him
in varying measure. While human beings were yet in
their childhood they toiled and spent themselves as though
this present world was their all, yet even then "bright
shoots of everlastingness," in the poet's phrase, broke
through the dense atmosphere of their toil for food, shel
ter and precarious happiness. By slow and halting steps
they enlarged their hold upon the fundamental things of
life. They saw and felt that things seen were intimations
of unseen powers. From the crude symbols of bararic
times they evolved art forms and rituals for worship.East
and West, temples and tombs and sphinxes illustrate the
hunger for divine guidance. To lay up treasure upon
earth has never brought content to human spirit. The
Great Adventure has lured our fathers on to scale heights
of attainment inexplicable by finite reasoning. Nor is the
immortal impulse feebler today; rather is it implicit in new
and daring forms of effort which stride down to the very
roots of being. The Psalm of Life sing's itself in many
keys. Romance and reality coaleasce in the exalted ser
vice which consecrated souls undertake for ends that are
partly hidden and partly revealed.The early migration of
the Aryans westward was but the advanced guard 01 wha
we call civilization. Since then how many peoples, mov
ed by a common impulse, have struck their tents and gone
on pilgrimage ! . . But change of environment has not had
the effect so ardently desired. The Hebrew tribes sought
better conditions and were disappointed. The exodus
from Egypt resulted in desert wanderings, and even in
this twentieth century Israel is still seeking a home. Pos
session only sharpens the edge of anticipation Distinct
glimpses of the Land of Promise give birth to qualities that
Jay concealed under the crust ot custom. The seers and
singers of every age have known this; their heartening

to all men and women of good will, has floater before the
eyes of seekers ; justice founded it, and harmony reigned
therein. The great movements of the Middle Ages, mis
sionary and philanthropic enterprises, all marked stages
in the great advance.Today amid the thunders of war and

MANUFACTURE WOOLEN GOODS IN WEST
For years the western wool grower has been at the mer
cy of the eastern manufacturer and buyer and forced to
ship his product across the continent to market and ship
it back after manufacturer, paying freight both ways.
Right here in the west where we raise the wool, we have
done only a little manufacturing and have made no at
tempt to turn out the fine grades of materials.
The war has brought the manufacture of woolen goods
to the front in a forceable manner.
The government is working our coast woolen mills day
and night and by so doing saving valuable car space and
nine cupping iu aim irom tne east.
We have been shown the way and given' a start by vir
tue of the war. Now is the time to plan to hold our place
as woolen goods manufacturers after the war.
The sheep industry must be encouraged for by dointr
that capital can be interested in enlarging our present
woolen mills and building new ones 1
Instead of having factories here equipped to use only
certain qualities of wool we must plan to use all grades.
