HEPPNER GAZETTE TIMES, HEPPNER, OREGON, THURSDAY, DEC. 12, 1929. PAGE FIVE FDAM V DADKFD FRANK PARKER ST0CKBR1D6E SPEED Reports from England are that Flight Leader A. H. Orlebar, who flew 368 miles an hour for the Schneider Cup, has achieved a speed of 500 miles an hour in a private trial. At that rate a man could start westward around the world in the latitude of London and never get out from under the sun. All human progress has arisen from the effort to expand time and compress space. Think that over. With flight at 500 miles an hour possible, space will mean nothing, time everything. Many who read this will live to see airplanes running regularly on some Buch time-schedule. TIME "Time is Money," said Poor Rich ard. Few understand just what that means. The new laquer process of paint ing motor cars takes one day in the paint shop instead of a month. Paint-shop floor-space is Baved. Money tied up In undelivered cars Is released thirty days earlier, and capital is turned over faster; result, cheaper cars. A young railway clerk asked a Cleveland bank to let him prove he could save them $25,000 a year by re-routing their mail exchanges with other banks. The first year the savings amounted to nearly $100,000 interest on uncollected items In transit Railroads run fast freight trains today on passenger schedules. Mer chants can get goods in a week that used to take a month in transit They do not have to carry Buch large stocks, hence have less capital tied up, lower interest charges and can sell cheaper. Every invention which moves men or merchandise faster cuts down the cost of living in this complex machine age. TEACHERS Public education will never be as good as it ought to be so- long as most school teachers never get out side of their home countries, says Edward A. Filene, Boston merchant and philanthropist Teachers can not present a true view of the world to their pupils unless they know something about the world out of their own experience. That is true for others besides teachers. The only really educated persons are those who have Been other countries besides their own. It is getting easier and easier to do that A trip to Europe with a week in London and another week in Paris can be had for $250 from New York. Mr. Filene is working on a plan to reduce this to $150 for tea chers and the next step, he thinks, will be to have such trips made compulsory for every teacher above the primary grades. WHEAT The most important news that has come out of Russia Is the re ported discovery by Russian botan ists of a new hybrid grain, a cross between wheat and rye. It is said to combine the food qualities of wheat with the cold resistance of rye and to yield three times as many bushels to the acre as ordin ary wheat. Not all the news that comes out of Russia can be credited, and this may be exaggerated.

In a world of color why should man's apparel strike the only somber note? Our ancestors dressed as gaily as their purses permitted. When George Washington went courting in a red coat, to wear plain clothes meant that the wearer was a Quaker or else too poor to buy gay garments. Anyone who doubts that men like to wear bright colors need only vis it a fashionable country club. Wo men subdue their color schemes for sport, men get more gorgeous. With everything else becoming more colorful, men's wear will fol low, in time. ADVERTISING IS KEY TO SUCCESS remembered, however, that Russia gave the world new grains before the war. Durum wheat originated In that country as well as other valuable varieties. If this latest report Is true, this discovery may have revolutionary consequences for the whole world. COLOR Men's clothes are becoming more colorful. Blue, green and red shoes SPECIALIST SAYS IT IS CHIEF CONNECTION THAT ALLOWS BUSINESS TO "SPARK." Advertising is the connection be tween the merchandise "power house" and general public which makes the contact that allows the business to "spark," explains H. T. Vance, head of the department of advertising and selling at Oregon State college, and leader of business institutes all over the state. The only other two ways of con tacting the public, he explains, are through personal selling and thru display, and only newspaper or oth er advertising can reach out thru the rural districts and beyond to get the people within range of a store itself. Professor Vance says three things are necessary in making any adver tisement effective. The first is that the merchant should know the needs of his custpmers. He must then have the goods to meet these needs, and finally select the right advertising medium to reach the public. Advertising can be greatly Im proved by keeping it abreast of the times, says Professor Vance. He agrees with other authorities who say that advertising copy must rec ognize the modern speed age, that it should be frank, truthful and free from the wild statements and exag gerations brought about by compar ative prices.

High schools all over the state are being invited to send del egates to the Tenth Annual High School conference at the University of Oregon, which is scheduled this year for January 10 and 11. The conference will be divided into five sections, for the editors of school papers and yearbooks, presidents of girls' leagues, student body officials and principals of high schools. From two to five delegates are allowed each high school, depending upon its size. All phases of school life will be discussed at the confer ence. It is believed that students will find the sessions of great help in arriving at the solution of diffi cult problems. Speakers noted all over the North west will be present and will not only give interesting and instructive addresses, but will take part in the round table discussions. Problems will be taken up, such as financing yearbooks, organization of publica tion si a IT, athletic problems, and high school dances. Besides the numerous meetings, the delegates will be entertained by the Oregon student committee at a reception and banquet, and will at tend the opening basketball game of the year again Washington State college. A tour of the campus, and "College Night," a vaudeville enter tainment, will also have places on the program.
