Just as the invasion of the Europ
ean cornborer haa put up to every
farmer in the corn-growing regions
the problem of how to get rid of
his cornstalks and hold the pest in
check, new inventions for the utili
zation of this farm waste for mak
ing paper and also a substitute for
lumber have been perfected.
Now capital in large amount has
been subscribed to finance indus
tries which will contract with farm
ers for their stalks, after harvest,
send their own machines Into the
fields to gather them, and haul them
to central points where they will
be manufactured into useful pro
ducts. This will help conserve the
forests and will also add to the
profits of the corn growers.
The International Red Cross is
preparing for the next war . One of
the certainties about the next war
on any large scale is that poison gas
will be used on a larger scale than
ever before. War is no longer an
affair of kings and hired armies; it
Is whole nations against whole na
tions. The aggressor In the next
great war will not wait for the ene
my to assemble an army but will
try to wipe out a whole city by
dropping poison gas from the
What the Red Cross is looking
for is some means of detecting the
most minute trace of poison gas in
the air. A prize of $2,000 is offered
to the successful Inventor. And we
call this a civilized world!
Anger, fear, worry, especially the
latter, kill more people than "real"
disease, according to a report re
cently made to the New York Acad
emy of Medicine. There is no such
thing as overwork, either of body
or mind. The body, given sufficient
nourishment, will quit of Its own
accord when fatigue becomes too
great, and a night's sleep will put
it back Into trim again. Probably
no human being has ever used his
brain to Its full capacity. Men who
have studied that subject say that
most of us use less than a quarter
of our power of thought
But let worry, jealousy, fear of
losing one's job, one's money or
one's sweetheart, creep in, and the
whole picture Is changed. The emo
tional tension tires both mind and
body, which cannot go on without
violent stimulation, and the process
of decay is hastened. Most of the
deaths from heart disease and kid
ney trouble are the result of emo
tional tension rather than any real
defect In the physical organs.
With all the talk about the in
creased average length of human
life, the age of seventy still remains
the normal limit for the human be
ing. So Dr. Louis Dublin, medical
head of one of the great insurance
compaies, reports. Only exceptional
individuals live beyond 70, and in
America the proportion who die be
tween 65 and 70 is increasing. Yet
the average American lives longer
than those of his father s genera
tion, did, much longer than in his
grandfather's time. That is because
the illnesses which used to kill off
babies, children and young peopl.
of both sexes are not so prevalent
Every American baby born today
has a reasonable chance of living to
55, which is the average length of
life in this country, as against 48 in
most of Europe . But the man who
reaches 55 cannot count on more
than fifteen years more of life with
any degree of certainty, and the
chances are that he will pass on
in ten years.

TTIHI Br FAMDQY
BY M Kjr U
JOHN JOSEPH GAINES, M.D.
The good physician somehow
feels that time is a mighty precious
commodity that everybody has, and,
that it should not be ruthlessly
thrown away. To waste time, is to
squander something that can never
be retrlevd. In this short talk, I
am trying in my modest way, to
tell you my opinion of prodigalities
that I have committed with perfect
ly good intentions, as follows:
I have found it an utter foolish
ness to tell my lady patient that
she should keep her feet warm,
and her head cool; In other words,
that she should not wrap three
hundred dollars worth of furs about
her neck, and go in zero tempera
tures with her legs clad in thin silk
stockings, and her feet in ballroom
And, I have wasted many a word
and the time it took to say them, in
telling young women that jay-bird
heels of astonishing altitude, are
most unnaturally freakish, contrary
to all laws of common sense that
they will endow coming generations
with mental and physical delin
quency, If not worse.
On several occasons I have fooled
away good advice and the time it
took to give it, on the barber that
uses a common hair brush on his
customers, unquestionably carrying
rubbish from diseased scalps to
healthy ones. Along with the brush
goes the public comb, equally effec
tive In doing harm. Maybe you
could persuade the good public ser
vant to keep a jar of antiseptic
solution In which to submerge his
brush and comb between customers
I just can't.
I have perhaps, squandered more
time against the six o'clock dinner
than on any other deadly enemy
of our business men; I can only
convince, when I am appealed to by
a victim of the custom, who comes
to me with falling circulation, a
threat of apoplexy, shortness of
breath, excess of weight, and dis
eased kidneys these at the age of
fifty or sixty, when man should be
at his very best.

Cost of plowing is recognized as

New tillage implements are being

These implements should be tested

so that definite recommendations
can be made regarding their use.
Plowing is necsesary in most soils
and should not be replaced until
the value of the new implements
has been demonstrated.
Oregon Stock Values
Lower Than in 1929
Oregon livestock values on Janu
ary 1, 1930, show a very marked re
duction. A reduction is indicated
in every class of livestock although
sheep show the greatest slump, ac
cording to a report released through
the federal-state cooperative report
ing service by Paul C. Newman, ag
ricultural statistician in charge.
While the total number of sheep
in Oregon remains unchanged as
compared to January 1, 1929, the
average price of all classes is only

the big slump in value It appears
that the steady increase of sheep
through the past few years has re

Dairy cattle in Oregon failed to
