H-M One copy, three months........ r Athena, Oregon, January 3, 1930 ACTION, NOT HOT AIR ' (The Manufacturer) " The stock market crash brought forcibly to public attention the fact that we all depend for our bread and butter on operating industries and steady payrolls. It is a noticeable fact that when the stability of the nation was threat ened no call was sent out for orators or political spellbinders who pose as saviors of the people. In stead the cry went up, "We must keep industries operating." The President issued an appeal to industrial leaders to immediately formulate programs for improvements and extensions which would require investments and the employment of labor. The first men called together were those unassuming individuate rail road presidents. They seek.no halo and they make few speeches. They transport the food, manufactured pro ducts and people of the nation. As a bread and butter proposition, this is more important than political pyro technics. They quietly assured the President that railroad operation would go on as usual and promised the expenditure of over one billion dollars in extensions and improve ments in 1930. Who next was called? Just ordin ary, hard working public utility ex ecutives. It was essential that there be no let-up1 in electrical development. Without argument or hesitation they pledged hundreds of millions of dol lars for the 1930 construction pro gram. Thus was hysteria relieved by the calm assurance of industrial leaders that ttreat basic industries would con tinue on uninterrupted development programs. The wage earner had a graphic illustration of the import ance of industries to which we all must look for our supply of bread and butter. What a contrast to months of speech-making and political bickering if such a matter had been put up to Coneress for "quick" action. Con troversies would have immediately arisen as to "where" the money was to be spent. As it is-, private Indus try will spend it where it is needed to render necessary public service .ram than where it will best settle political debts. It is action, not hot air, that counts in a crisis. - mind is of , a recent occurrence Down at Medford two men and a wo man are accused of torturing an old man by holding a blowtorch to the soles of his feet in an attempt to ex tort money from him. And it may be the whipping post wouldn't be severe enough for the three heartless crooks. o Oregon teachers at . their . annual convention in Portland went on rec ord as favoring the creation of a state board of education and the adoption of the county unit system. Not so long ago Umatilla county threw a long, sharp harpoon into a plan to county unitize the schools, and we are of the opinion that senti ment would be found the same now as then on this important subject. ; o Three labor racketeers in Chicago were perforated with lead when they were ambushed in a garage, by offi cers. While in the act of demanding $10,000 at the points of two pistols and a shotgun, the officers stepped forth.' the bandits opened fire, and fell riddled with bullets. It natural ly follows that this garage will be a likely spot for the planting of a crop of "pineapples." . , o Pop Warner and California sum mer temperature twisted the tail of the army mule for a 34-13 score in the intersectional football game at Palo Alto, Saturday, to the joy and gratification of 70,000 western fans o Scientists estimate that a human skull found by research geologists in China to be more than a million years old. , Some ivory, we'll say. The vote on the new court house proposal indicates that little interest was taken for even in Pendleton a lichfc vote was registered. Outside of Pendleton, where the measure carried 773 to 328, the outlying precincts gave a majority against the proposal the total vote from the precincts be ing 1338 for, and 2002 against the measure. The suggestion that a hall of records and a new jail apart from the court house would serve require ments at this time for a great deal less money, prevailed here, where the three Athena nreclncts totaled 108 aaainst, to only 19 for. Weston reg' istered 107 against the proposal and 81 for it Gibbon precinct carried the banner' of loyalty to the idea of a new court house by giving 12 votes in its favor to one against, while Willow Springs and Nolin precincts registered 100 per cent in opposition. with 11 votes each. We had 'supposed that the falls at Oregon City was the greatest generat inar enersrv for electrical power in the Northwest. Now comes a Port land expert who likens this great cataract to a luxury insofar as be ing important in valuation to the Portland Electric Power company as a basis for charging what he terms to be excessive rates. This expert, who is in the employ of the city of Port land, further asserts that it were better for all concerned if the Ore gon City plant could be turned over to private use. As a matter of fact. the revelations growing out of the findings of this expert show that one of the stations capable of producing 20,000 horse power is limited to only 12,000 through use of present equip ment. and that the historic water- wavs could develop 40,000 horse power, under proper development o "Bob" Sawyer, Bend newspaper man is content to remain state high way commissioner, and lets it be known in no uncertain words that he tetotally eschew gubernatorial can didacy at this time.

(By E. E. Coad,NSupt.) There are two schools of thought is psychology, the behavioristic school and the school of heredity. The lat ter professes to believe that what we are is predetermined from what we inherit from our ancestors; the form er, that heredity is merely responsible for the amount of intelligence wa possess, and that our environment and our associations account for the use we make of our talents. The controversy seems to wax more bitter with the years. One university assumes the truth of one belief, while another holds to the opposite. Like all things controversial things which cannot be proved or which have not been proved true, things that are merely predicated upon opinion and preconceived notion either side may have the better of the argument. But the truth usually is somewhere in the no-man's-land between the two schools of thought. But the question is intriguing at that. The flxationist group, those who believe that heredity alone is re sponsible for what we are and what we become, has as bleak an outlook upon life as the old-time predestina' tinntRt btoud. One would thus be but a puppet in the arms of a pre determined fate. Nothing one might do could go back of the stream of heredity from which he came. Hen sDeaks the rationalism and material ism of Schopenhauer and of Nietz . There is little hope of the future here. On the other hand, the behavioristic btoud holds that what we are, aside from inherited intelligence, and what we become depends upon the lntlu ences. conditions and surroundings which home, school, church and so ciety in general create about us. Jhus the units of society must assume their full responsibility for what each individual of society does with his in herited auota of intelligence. But the heredity group stands aioor answering the query of Cain, "Am I my brother's keeper 7" with a loud, Teutonic "Nein." Surely sanity and progress and truth lie somewhere between the two extremes, with tht actual facts yet to be conclusively proved. This is a problem for psychology to deter mine. If psychology is to become a science it must deal with truth and facts and quit this mere speculation in the realm of philosophy.
