Athena, Oregon, November 22, 1929
Senator Heflin. Alabama democrat,
considers Mussolini to be the most
dangerous man in the world. And it
would be interesting to know what
Mussolini thinks of Senator Heflin.
Three young robbers caught wreck

Portland boys, ranging in age from
17 to 19. Two were brothers and in
attempting to escape had their legs
r,rf orted with buckshot. The young
est of the trio was captured without
being wounded. Police in the metro-
politan cities are beginning to realize
that it is the kids in greater num
bers, and not bo much the work of
hardened .1 crooks, - who are doing
most of the petty larceny and "stick
up" jobs encountered so frequently
Gun in hand, a kid bandit shot il
out with an officer in Spokane tha
other day, and only a bullet from an
other officer's gun and a battered
head subdued him. The boy now faces
a murder charge, will be convicted
and hanged for being a killer. Records
disclose that he is a three-time r

in his desperation to keep from being
sent back there, he willfully became

Senator McNary appears to have
everything set. so far as the pro
ceeds from federal lands which may
revert to the state' is concerned. He
has allocated the prospective fundo
to the construction of a flock of new
state buildings at Salem. If these
lands do revert to the state, what's the
matter with using the funds accruing
to natch uo the state school fund
which long ago was euchred out of
the cream of its school land resources
Millions of dollars annually flow in-
to the Washington state school fund
from school land resources, and we
would like some smart guy to rise up
and tell us how much Oregon schools
are receiving from school lands in

. Concerning the feed problem which
nheeDmen are facing for the winter
the Salem Capital Journal has this to
say: "Unless the unexpected comes
in the shape of an open winter there
threatens to be large losses in sheep
this year, report some sheep men. For
some time now heavy feeding has
been done with sheep because of the
dry pastures and inability of . the
sheen to keep going on their own. It
is expected there will be big demand
for feed for this purpose before win
ter is over."

(By E. E. Coad, Supt )
An important function of govern
ment is the establishment of stan
dards of value. Thus, the gold dollar
is the standard of our money value,
while we have the English standards
of weight, measure, distance, etc.,
rather than the French metric sys
While such standards of value are
vitally necessary for the orderly con
duct of business, there are other
standards of value of far more im
portance to the individual over which
the government exercises but incident
al, if any, control.
Each of us is motivated by indi
vidual ideas of value. Some are
actuated in practically everything
they do by some dominant motive.
Others drift, eddied here and there by
every vagary of the current about
them, with not a single impulse of
dominant inner control to guide or
It should be an important function
of public education at least to make
an effort to motivate individual ac
tion toward such channels of inner
urge as will result in a decent, happy,
contented and industrious citizenship
Many so-called educated people are
actuated solely by selfish motives ana
bv the conditional emotional reflexes
which-they have never learned to con
trol. On the other hand, there are
some mighty fine citizens among those
who have never had a chance to learn
to read or write but who have learned
a sane and rational control over their
emotional impulses. Many people
with collegiate honors attached to
their names go through life dominat

games and all athletic exercises in
the face of the fact that millions of
dollars are being spent every year
for golf courses adult playgrounds.
When the home was a factory center
and youth had home duties and re
anonsibilities. when human contacts
wore limited to the immediate family
and a rigidly circumscribed neighbor
hood, the emotional life of the child
was adiusted to the environment in
which he lived by the duties which his
environment forced upon him from an
earlv age. But the standards of the
past cannot be used in the solution of
