TWENTY-FIVE YEARS HENCE
The coal furnace and stove, twenty-five
years from now, will be
things of the past, Roger W. Bab
son, head of the Babson Statistical
"All householders will be compelled
by law to use either gas or electricity
for heating, cooking, refrigeration,
power and other industrial and house
A quarter century hence, says Mr.
Babson. Kold will be made from Jead;
butter, milk and cheese from kero
sene; tides will be harnessed and the
heat of the sun will be utilized iii in
dustry. "Office buildings, factories and
apartment houses will be built with
out windows in order to obtain bet
ter ventilation," Mr. Babson declares.
"Street intersections, where traffic
policemen are now necessary, will
have overhead bridges. All main
streets will have two stories of side
walks with special provision for the
parking of cars anywhere on the pay
ment of a fee. When the heliocopter
is perfected, every house will have a
hangar on the roof.
Mr. Babson said tbat clothing
would be turned out the way news
papers are by modern presses.
"The cloth will be fed in one end
of the machine like paper and the
finished suit or dress will come out
at the other end, pressed and in a
box ready for delivery. Shoes well
be made from an entirely new pro
duct and stamped out at a rate en
abling two or three factories to make
all the shoes for the nation. Houses
will be standardized and manufactur
ed like automobiles.
A Mr. Welch of Medford will con
struct a $10,000 fishing lodge on
Rogue river. Just where the demand
for such an institution comes from
is more than we can conjecture. It
is utterly impossible for us to feature
overstuffed davenports, tiled bath
rooms and electric ranges in com
parison with a firbough shakedown
covered with army blankets, a plunge
from river bank into a pool, and
the glow of the campfire. Mr. Welch
may find tennants for his lodge, but
not from the ranks of those who
know that a steelhead tastes right
only when broiled over live red coals,
out in the open where nature pro
vides the bath and the bed, and where
every blessed one of us feels bigger
and better than we really are.
A 50-car trainload of tractors was
recently shipped into Mississippi to
be used in the cultivation of cotton,
and it is estimated that these ma
chines will displace from the cotton
fields 1300 men and 6200 mules. The
South with its surplus man-power
and limited development of resources,
is facing a new employment problem
brought about through the introduC'
tion of modern machinery.
Coolidgc made a popular speech the
other day in which he scored section
al ideas and artificially stimulated
animosities. He chose a subject dead
easy for the present campaign has
proved more than anything else, that
sectional lines have been almost
obliterated, in that the "Solid South"
is no more.
Despite the fact that Portland is
credited with the lowest rate of in
crease in the cost of living, as com
pared with any one of 19 major
cities, when going there you should
take a dollar or so to eat on.
Presidential candidate Herbert
Hoover had his fishing trip on the
Rogue spoiled by persistent camera
men. And being , a true sportsman
and a good fisherman, Mr. Hoover
was duly cranky about it.
With a voice choked by tears,
Gene Tunney has announced his re
tirement from the professional prize
fight ring. There may be more to
Tunney than the public has hereto
fore thought there was.
Italy welcomed royally her sur
vivors of the Italia. Other countries
through which Nobile and his com
rades passed, tried to do the same
but were denied the chance.
The finding of a diamond in the
swimming tank at the natatorium in
Walla Walla, should serve as an in
centive for diving.
Auto fatalities are less; yet in four
weeks 77 of the larger cities report
ed a total of 514 persons killed.
Medford had a warm time greeting
Herbert Hoover. He did not tarry
long; went fishin'.
