Scientists studied the earth's mag
netic currents, as affected by the
eclipse. Every ship's captain noticed
that the eclipse had an effect on the
compass. Science does not know why.
Possibly some scientist got from
this eclipse the most important infor
mation of all, which has to do with
the amount of radium in the eon.
The sun's length of life and the
lives of this and other planets depend
on the sun's radio-active force. If
the sua were merely burning up, as
was once supposed, the life of bum an
beings here might be cut down a few
million years, whereas it will proba
bly go on for several hundred million
years, aided by radium energy in the

Montgomery Brown, of Cleveland, is

being unorhtodox, be protested, "I

enough, and he is out.
Bishop Brown's exact description
of God in which he believes would be
interesting. One small boy, asked to
describe God, replied instantly, "He's
got a Jong white beard, and high-top
boots." That was perfectly respect
ful. It described the boy's highest
Many human beings imagine a God
somewhat as that little boy imagined
Him, with a beard that might need
trimming, boots to be mended, etc.
What is the Right Reverend Bishop's
idea of a Supreme Being managing

and space unlimited, millions of suns
and planets, constant change every

Our Navy heads might give the
country information on a statement
recently published by English papers.
The British hav arranged their ships
ao that they can take in water bal
last on one side or the other, and thus
by making the ship tip over, raise
the guns to the desired elevation and
increase their range without actually
changing the mechanical adjustment
of the guns.
That aems to be highly ingenious,
but of counts, we can't do it in this
country because probably somebody
in fcurope would object.

It is proposed to create an "airport'

yards of the Pennsylvania Railroad.
Temporary landing and leaving places
for niers might thus be provided in
many cities. That ought to be done, j
Automobile roads, without grade
crossings, could also easily be provid- j
ed, making a roadway above railroad
tracks running out through city su

Makeshift airports will soon be out

These coins have a meaning even
more important than their meaning
as memorials of courage and artistic

they will be prized in the North even

University of Oregon, Eugene, Feb.
3. Newspapers and magazines of gen
eral circulation are published in 134
communities of Oregon, according to
the annual survey of the state press
made by Prof. George S. Tumball of
the University of Oregon achool of
journalism. The total number of per
iodical publications listed in Prof.
Tumbull's directory of the Oregon
press is 251, or approximately the
same as in 1923, when the number
This year's total excludes all pub

are 17. Only one of these was Hit ted

Prof. Tumbull's annual survey
shows that two new daily papers were
started in the state in the past year,
the Central Oregon Press, at Bend,
and the Klamath News, at Klamath
Falls. Both of these advanced from
twice-a-weeks, bringing the total
number of dailies in Oregon to 33, an
increase of two in the year, since
there were no fatalities in this field.
New weekly papers totaled 8, ex
ceeding by 1 the number of deaths in
this field. One of the 7 weeklies that
expired, however, was a paper printed
in a nearby town of larger sire, and
one was an exclusively farm news pa

of actual home-town weeklies that
Jn the twice-a-week and weekly
field no paper is counted which is a

reduction of twic-a-weeks from 7 to

at 4, with the additions of the Cottage
Grove Sentinel and the St. Helens
Mist to the number, counterbalancing

THE revenue act of 1924 provides
that the status of a taxpayer
relative to the amount of his per
sonal exemptions shall be deter
mined by apportionment in accord
ance with the number of months
the taxpayer was single, married,
or the head of a family. Under
the preceding act the amount of
the exemption to which the tax
payer was entitled was determined
by his status as a single person,
a married person, or the head of
a family on the last day of the
taxable year, December 31, if the
return was made on the calendar
year basts, as most are.
For example, a taxpayer mar
ried on September 30, 1924, would
be entitled to an exemption of
$1,375. For the first nine months
he is classified as a single man
entitling him to an exemption of
$750 three-fourths of the $1,000
exemption allowed a single person
and for the last three months
he is entitled to an exemption of
$o25 one-fourth of the $2,500 ex
emption allowed a married person.
If on June 30, a taxpayer ceased
being the head of a famfly the
support in one household of a rel
ative or relatives being discontin
uedhe is allowed an exemption
of $1,750 one-half of tha exemp
tion of $1,000 granted a ringlo per
son plus one-half of the exemption
of $2,500 granted the head of a
family. With regard to the $400
credit for a dependent, the t?ix
payer's status is determined as of
the last day of the taxable year.
If, during the year, his support of
such dependent ceased, he is not
entitled to this credit.
