A REVIVED COMMERCIAL CLUB.
After a donnent period of several years, the Junction City
Commercial chib has been re-organized and Is'now 'getQ'iig nc-
tyely to wor jn ttie' advertising 'of Its town and In looking after
the commercial interests of the community. Among other
things, the club Is arranging for tho placing of signs that will
point the way to their home town and Inform the travelers In
the valley Shfe year that'they are near one o'f the 'busy towns of

The work that a good, united commercial organization can
do for a townis tremeudous. By "united" we do not mean an
organization in which aU "is honey and ple.'with never1 a' dirfe'reifce
of opinion "to rutile the'serenity of the club, but one In wfifcli men
bfc diverse opinions 'can get together with mutual respect and,
after considering' all the varied Spfnions and conditions', can dfr
clde on a course of action and follow it out to its' accomplishment
Division of inieredts means' a pulling apart of the comtlierclal
and industrial activities. Unified action means a growth of
mutual understanding and decided gains in the strength of com
munity action. By touching elbows, men learn thatJtheir fellows
have likeable qualities.
To dtrthe' greatest possible good for a community, a commer
cial organization must be wide in its scope of 'membership. Not
only must the privilege of membership tie extended to all In the
immediate community who have the Interest of the community
at heart, but those from surrounding territory must be invited
in. A shoe "factory for Springfield would mean workmen fOr the
farmers of the valley tofeedj a beet sugar factory for fanners bf
the valley would mean dollars in the pockets of the farmers to be
put in the Springfield banks. The interests of tne wnole upper
valley are int'ertwIn'eU. These interests deniand the formation of

MOTION PICTURES APPEAL TO WORLD-PUBLIC.
i "First of all, should be remembered that no force in the world

"m ever lut-me motion picture uusiness, or any ower Dusmess,
. one inch SbovVits present status, except the force 'of popiliar de
man'd; which mean's your demand, and the demand of all'tlie bet-
ter people jpf your community, says the Woman's Home Compan-
ionf or April. " 1
"The motion picture deserves the freedom that is accorded
the press. While It is an expression of dramatic art, it is also a
iind of journalism; for free public discussion. Pure milk, tuber
culosis, and the fly nuisance have been discussed on the screen; in
like manner, hig moral problems are being discussed at every film
show, and at the same time the audience is being entertained.
"Another poirit to be kept in mind: Today ali motion pictures
are made for a world-public comprising the young and the old, the
educated and the ignorant. Until there arises a specialized de
mand every motion picture problem must be a compromise be
tween the demands of the child and of the adult.
" 'The greatest' competitor the motion picture theatre needs to
fear for the future is the public school,' said the head of a great
distributing organization of films. As soon as the public schools
begin to use motion pictures extensively' we will be compelled t"o
change the character of our production to a 'considerable extent
to meet the demand. The exhibitor will have to make a special
effort for child patronage, or lie will lose ground;, His purpose is
commercial,' while that of the school Is Idealistic'
"In tlie meantime the exhibitor is gathering in the children at
the rate of a million a day." ".-
Use of automobiles on the farm is becoming much wider than
was at bne'ttme thought possible. By means of a' remdvable or
convertible ride fieat the capacity of the'ear is increased so that it
ho'lds considerable quantities of perisliible farm produce for tile
city market or emergency guppllea for the farm. Perishable fruits
and vegetables can be put on the market much earlier In the day

Lincoln Beachey was a pioneer In modern-day aeronautics.
He began his career at the time of the Lewis and Clark exposition
and had continued in It assiduously ever since. His aim was to
