HEPPNER GAZETTE TIMES, HEPPNER, OREGON, THUR SPAY, DEC. 12, 1929. PAGE THREE THE ARMY WORM If the Eighteenth Amendment is ever overthrown it will not be by the Wets. The over-zealous Drys will talk It out of the Constitution as they talked It In. When one of them announces that the purchaser of a glass- of wine should be sentenced to ten years in prison, or that the army should be called out to shoot down citizens who make whoopee, the common sense of people rebels. "This is too much," they murmur. The murmur is not loud, but it Is deep. The murmurers are not given to analyzatlon, and they have little talent for putting their thoughts in to words. None the less, they are conscious that a law which makes a Christian talk and act in such an unchristian fashion must be open to serious doubt. And, if goaded far enough, they will do something about It A wonderful thing about the uni verse is its all-pervading law of bal ance. For every star there Is some other star to hold it In place. For every poison there is an antidote. For every abuse there is some nat ural corrective. "Things refuse to be mismanaged long," as Emerson pointed out "Though no checks to a new evil appear, the checks exist and will appear. If the government is cruel, the governor's life is not safe. If you tax too high, the revenue will yield nothing. If you make the criminal code sanguinary, Juries will not convict." I read recently a book on the gangs of Chicago. It contained an appalling list of murders for which the law has secured no convictions. But few of the guilty are now alive. The natural destroyer of the gang is the gang. A wise old friend of mine told me that he wasted years of his life in worrying about the possible destruc tion of his garden and trees by pests. The gypsy moths came and ate. The grasshoppers came and ladi waste. Finally, came the army worms, threatening to consume ev ery leaf and blade of grass. What happened? The army worms became so bad there was not food enough. Hence, they were un dernourished and died, without lay ing any eggs. And the next year there were no army worms. I take much comfort in this story. I do not mean to suggest that we should sit supinely by and allow wrongs to get so bad that th,ey cor rect themselves. We should whoop it up for righteousness and take a poke at evil. But it's good to know that, after all, we have a mighty helper. The law of balance is on our side. The conqueror of every army worm is the army worm. HUMORETTES Yi KERR SAYS BUSINESS GOOD. Indications of continued business prosperity throughout the country were noted by President W. J. Kerr of Oregon State college who was re cently called east to attend the an nual convention of the land grant college association. Employment conditions are normal except in iso lated sections. At the convention President Kerr was named on a na tional committee to work with the interior department In proposing a permanent policy of federal aid in education.

A new bulletin on Oregon taxa tion which gives comparative in creases for rural and urban proper ty in every county in the state, has just been published by the Oregon State College Experiment station. It is the result of research by Dr. W. H. Dreesen of the economics staff who made a similar study several years ago that revealed serious in equalities in assessment. The new bulletin containing 48 pages of data, charts and graphs is described by one tax authority as "a notable study by an able expert." HUNTERS KILL 60 COYOTES. Adam Knoblock and D. V.
