Curry, representative from Califor- i
ma has introduced a bill providing
for the creation of a dt partment of
aeronautics to be headed by a Secre
tary of Aeronautic who would have j
a place in the cabinet and direct the !
entire aviation plans of the govern
ment. It is not known whether this
measure comes as a result ot conver
sations with the President or indi-
rect'y at hts suggestion, or whether
the provisions are the sole creation
of Mr Curry, but there is every rea
son to believe the President looks
with favor on the move.
Unless the political dragon shows
its head such a measure stands a
strong chance of adoption. Certainly
it will lead to a greater unification
of the air service. The President
seem determined no longer to per
mit the service to remain as the un
fortunate vermiform appendix of our
other governmental bodies to be cut
out whenever a financial pain is felt.
The naval policy of the government
seems fairly well defined. The navy
will be kept up to the full treaty

President Senses Value of Yankees
In the Air.
Here and there complaint is heard
thtit the development in aeronautics
is so electrical that as soon as one
type of aeroplane is built it is obso
lete. The President, however, pays
no attention to such arguments. He
knows that the scrapping of aero
planes is as nothing to the -ost of
scrapping battleships. He senses the
fact that one daredevil American with
some high explosive and Yankee
pluck can sink a battleship with it
thousand or eighteen hundred men in
the twinkling of an eye. It is said to
say that now the President has set
himself to this investigation it will

HE Christmas season annually brings to mankind
the thoughtful hour of serious retrospection and
the importance of governing their affairs in a man
ner befitting wise men.
The Spirit of Christmas is the ideal in the abso
lute, but quite often it carries with it hardships to
men of families and brings them face to face with their own short
comings and failures to substantially build structures of supply
for those they love.
Maybe such hours have been yours and maybe right at this
moment you realize the necessity of changing your course. It is
never too late, you know.
If so, we feel we are conferring a service in again calling your
attention to the fundamentals of peace and plenty which, briefly,
are Vision and Thrift.
Vision is the understanding that all is well with our ever-progressing
world. Thrift is a common sense conservation of our tal
ents which may be labor or money.
After all, money is only stored-up labor. So to save money is to
intelligently store up labor to distribute or equalize it over the
span of life.
The New Year will soon be here not ti dissipate on idle resolu
tions which will never be kept. On the other hand a sincere desire
to build up an independence for your loved ones and your own old
age, will be its own resolution.
This institution wishes you success in such resolves and is here
in Heppner ready to serve you in fulfillment of such worthy en
deavor. FIRST NATIONAL BANK
