REAL PUBLIC SPIRIT
Heal public spirit is that shown
when there is a chance to obtain
property at the expense of a mort
jfl'ge foreclosure and which is refused
because of the good the mortgaged
property does to the community gen
erally. Here is a case in point:
W. E. Hunt has a mortgage on the
property controlled and operated by
the Southern Wasco County Fair as
sociation. At the recent meeting of
the stockholders and board of direc
tors of the as ociation, it was sug
gested, in view of the fact that the
fairs have not been productive of
sufficient profits to even pay the in
terest on the mortgage that J!r.
Hunt foreclose and take the property
Mr. Hunt emphatically refused to
follow the suggestion. He said the
fairs were educational, that they
tended to bring people together and
were the mans of spurring movement
to better stock, better vegetables,
better grains, and above all, were an
object lesson to the young, in that
they were given an opportunity to
learn the ins and outs of the agri
cultural and stock raising business by
competition as members of the vari
ous clubs. .

CARE BETTER THAN CURE
Many Firet Could Be Prevented
A Little Care Taken
A ' smoldering cigarette butt, a
match dropped into waste-paper
basket, an. iron left heating on the
board, a discarded pile of dirty,
greasy rubbish, or endless other
such petty risks caused by careless
ness, may be the means of trans
forming a home or factory or office
building into a smoking ruin.
A large majority of homes haw
fire hazards that can be removed
with a small amount of work or at
slight cost. Poor wiring, carelessly
handled heating and electrical de
vices and collections of rubbish are
among the most common risks and
account for many serious confla
grations. The danger lies in these
everyday risks being overlooked or
Fire is practically preventable.
Authoritative estimates state that
30 per cent of all fires result from
carelessness or ignorance. With a
little caution and understanding of
possible hazards, homes and build
ings can be protected. Preventing
fire is better than trying to repair
eggs called for, during the period
of egg scarcity. Of course the cake
will not be so rich as when all the
eggs required are used. Allow one
half teaspoon of baking powder and
two tablespoons of milk for each
egg omitted. From half to two
third; of the eggs called for should
be used when this substitution is
The hen that lays a small egg is
a bad influence. It takes nerve to
cull her out of the flock, especially
if she is a high producer, but rigid
culling of small-egg hens must bs
done to improco the flock and to
avoid price cuts that go with small

Prolong the life of shoes in win

men and boys without rubbers, by
soaking the soles in a greare that

culture recommends several simple
formulas for the purpose. .
Mr. Hunt further said that he en
loved attending the fairs. He en-1 Kice can be eooked m an open

GEO. C. BLAKELEY,
A DEMOCRATIC ESTIMATE
OF HERBERT HOOVER
Candidate Would Not Give Up Hit
American Citizenship for High
During the Wilson administration
Walter H. Pnge was American Am
bassador at the Court of St James.
It is interesting to know what this
prominent Democrat wrote to Presi
dent Wilson regarding Hoover and
his work. j
The following will be found in
Volume 3 of the Life and Letters of
Walter H. Page, page 312.
December SO, 1916. Written not
for the sake of the gentleman men
tioned but for possible help to the
President and the service:
HOOVER: Mr. Herbert C.
Hoover, Chairman of the Commit
lion for Relief in Belgium, would, if
opportunity thould offer, make j
uteful officer in the State Depart
ment. He it probably the only man
living, who hat privately- (without
holdinsr office) negotiated under-
ttandingt with the British, French,
Dutch and Belgian Government!.
He personally knows and hat direct
dealing! with theie government! and
hit transactions with them have in
volved teveral hundred .- million! dol
lar!. He ii a man of very consider-
able fortune less than when the
work began, for this Relief Work hat
cost him much. He waa approached
on behalf of the British Govern
ment with the suggestion that if he
would become a British tubject the
government would be pleated to give
him an important executive pott and
with the hint that if he tucceeded a
title might await him. Hit antwer
was: "I will do what I can for you
with pleature but I will be damned
if I give up my American citizenthip.
Not on your life!" Within the last
tix montht two large financial or
ganization!, each Independently,
have offered him one hundred
thousands dollars a year to enter
' their tervice and' an industrial com
pany offered him one hundred
thoutandt dollars (to start ..with.)
He declined them all... When the
v Belgian Relief Work rcently struck
a tnag Hoover by telegraph got the
promise of a loan - in the United
Statet for the Britiih and French
Governments for the Belgian Relief
of $150,000,000! I do not know but

THE OPEN MIND
THE public, with its healthy desire for the
new and the better, insists upon continuous
improvement, and will withdraw its patronage
from any product or service which stands still.
Nowhere is this more true than in the auto
mobile industry. The car is more than a utility.
It is a personal thing, involving your conven
ience, your comfort, your safety, your sense of
beauty and color, your pride of ownership, your
complete environment for many hours of your
life. Customs and habits of living change fast;
and the past holds many warnings of how quickly
your favor can shift when an automobile, for even
a single year, fails to show progress.
So continuous improvement is more than a
policy with General Motors. It is a vital necessity.
THE PUBLIC DEMANDS NEW MODELS
And the public is right. Out of that demand
have come electric ' starting and lighting, the
closed body, Duco finish, four-wheel brakes and
hundreds of refinements, big and little. Improve
ments that might have taken a generation have
been born within a few years because people want
greater performance, beauty and comfort.
Equipped with the largest research laborato
ries, proving ground and body building plants, and
guided by n Open Mind which is ready to revise
its thinking in response to new facts, General
Motors believes that it is peculiarly fitted not only
to sense but to anticipate public demand and to
give the people better automobiles at better
values year after year.
As evidence of that faith we presented some
months ago the New Chevrolet, the New Pontiac,
the New Oldsmobile. And now we ofTcr, with
equal pride, the New Buick, the New Cadilluc,
the New LaSalle and the New Oakland.
