HEPPNER GAZETTE TIMES, HEPPNER, OREGON, THURSDAY, FEB. 6, 1930. PAGE THREE J FRANK PARKER CORNSTALKS 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. GAS 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 clouds. 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! EMOTIONS 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. LIFE 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 as formerly. 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.

Trouble-makers, TTIHI Br FAMDQY OTDdDfTTTdDP BY M Kjr U JOHN JOSEPH GAINES, M.D. WASTING TIME 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 sandals. 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.

GILLIAM & BISBEE We Have It, Will Get It, or It Is Not Made especially the sensational newspa pers which prefer war to peace be cause war Is more "newsy" are al ready trying to lay the foundation for international strife. If we ever do go to war against Great Britain it will be over some thing far more Important than a coal-bed located where the tempera ture is always below freezing and usually 40 decrees or so below Even if the coal were accessible it would not be worth fighting over. Coal is losing its importance In the economic scheme of thines. nnw that oil has become the principal fuel for the world's navies as well as the merchant marine. WHEAT GROWING POINTERS (From tillage and production report of Eastern Oregon Wheat conference.) Spring disking of stubble Is al ways advisable if the ground is to be plowed late. For early plowing disking does not pay. The use of a rolling coulter attached to a Inlnter aids in turning under stubble more completely, making better summer fallow. Late Dlowine without nrevlnna disking reduces wheat yields. flowing rrom live to eight inches deen with variations In rienth AKh time of plowing is recommended. t-iowing deeper than eight Inches will rerely if ever prove profitable. Packine after Dlowlno- rinon nnf materially affect the yield of wheat aner muow. tor spring plowing and sowing, thorough packing after plowing is advslaDie. Harrowing is best done within a week or 10 days after plowing. Harrowing after plowing and be fore the moisture has left the ground helps firm the seed bed. Tillage tools best adapted for summer fallow are spike tooth and spring tooth harrows, and blade or rod weedera. Weedy fallow means lower yields and poorer quality of wheat Cost of plowing is recognized as important in cost of production. New tillage implements are being introduced intended to eliminate plowing in seedbed preparation These implements should be tested by the Oregon Experiment station 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 $it,uo a head compared to 111.60 a moist cold and dry cold in the same refrigerator Frigidaire equipped with the new Hydrator now offers an extra service.

With sheep num bers remaining stationary and with the big slump in value It appears that the steady increase of sheep through the past few years has re ceived a definite check. Dairy cattle in Oregon failed to register any Increase and the num ber on farms Is estimated at 220, 000 head, the same as a year ago. The average value per head slump ed $8.00 a head to $80.00.
