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.

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. '
Spray material, put in readiness
now, may mean the difference be
tween profit and loss on next year's
crop.

in motoring you hit everything.
