GROUND FOR ENCOURAGE
MENT. THE first detailed report of the
National Business Survey Con
ference apointed last fall by Presi
dent Hoover is encouraging to ev
erybody except chronic pessimists
and those who for personal or poli
tical reasons would like to make
conditions appear worse than they
In many lines of industry, Chair
man Barnes reports, conditions are
ai-tnallv better than they were a
year ago. In the few where they
are not so good, the difference be
tween thfe period of 1930 and the
corresponding period of 1929 is very
small, and is diminishing.
Credit is getting easier every
where. A third more long-term
bonds have been marketed this win
ter than last year. Bank rates are
steadily declining. Savings bank de
posits are increasing in the East
Life insurance companies wrote 3
percent more business in February
than one year earlier, thus justify
ine the estimate of increased in
vestment reserves in their hands.
Building and loan associations re
port increased deposits. More farm
loans are being made, but there is
a marked falling off in foreclosures
and delinquencies. Instalment sales
are up to last year's and payments
are being kept up. Public utilities
have begun a program of new con
struction which will run about $400,-
000,000 more than 1929. Construc
tion work, except in residential
building, is much ahead of last year.
Road building contracts let in Jan
uary and February are 82 percent
ever 1929. New building contracts
in the second week in March were
the highest in eight weeks, and are
expected to increase as mortgage
money becomes more freely avail
able. Railroads have orders out for
more rails, more locomotives and
almost as many new cars as last
year, and railroad payrolls for Feb
ruary were higher than in Febru
ary 1929. The commitments of the
raliroads call for spending $140,000,-
000 more in the first six months of
this year than in the first half of
last year. Electric railways are
spending $44,000,000 more for the
year. Shipyards are active, employ
ing 28 percent more men in Febru
ary than in February a year ago
and 10 percent more than in Novem
ber. Telephone expenditures for the
year will run $66,000,000 above 1929.
More radio sets were sold since
New Year's than a year ago. Elec
tric light and power companies are
carrying out their promise to spend
$65,000,000 more this year than last.
Iron and steel output is increasing.
Automobile production is proceed
ing at rate to build 4,600,000 cars
this year, with payrolls in the in
dustry for February 25 percent
higher than January and 28 percent
above December. Farm implements
business is about 5 percent off. Tex
tiles are from four to 17 percent
below normal for the season. Book
and job printing was two percent

International San day School Lesson for
THE CHILD AND THE KINGDOM
Matthew 18:1-6, 12-14; 19:13-15.
Rev. Samuel D. Price, D.D.
Children had their place In inaug
urating the first Palm Sunday when
Jesus went in triumph from Beth
any to Jerusalem. At first they are
not mentioned but they certainly
were everywhere in the crowd that
thronged the route. Then we find
them singing praises in the Temple
and Jesus was heartened thereby.
It was about eight months earlier
when the disciples asked the ques
tion that is part of this lesson study.
Read both Matthew 18 and 19 for
all the related facts. Much has been
said recently about the. Kingdom of
Heaven that was in process of for
mation. Even the disciples had mis
taken ideas about this and were
discussing the relative fitness with
in the group for high places in the
new reign. On a secret ballot there
might have been one vote for each
as prime minister. It was not in
any sense of modesty that the Mas
ter was asked "Who is the greatest
in the kingdom of heaven?"
It appears at first as if Jesus had
not heard for He Is looking about
for a child. When attention is at
tracted He beckons the little one to
come up close. While nothing Is said
on the subject it is safe to conclude
that no one in all Nazareth was as
popular with the children as was
Jesus. Children always know whom
they can trust. They were never
afraid of that kindly look and invit
ing voice. They must have throng
ed Him, and especially when He
was ready to tell them one of His
A child helps In the acted parable
as the Teacher tells them that they
must become converted and be as
little children If they would qualify
for this kingdom of God. Some of
greater than last year and newspa
per production three percent higher
Those are not generalizations or
guesses. They are specific facts.
They are something to show to the
grumbler who declares that things
are getting worse instead of better.
As a matter of cold fact, this coun
try has never before experienced so
wide-spread a depression from
which recovery began to quickly.
It started in the East, and recovery
is coming first In the East, but the
reestablishment of the high level of
industrial and commercial activity
and general prosperity which we
were enjoying a year ago is bound
to overtake the wave of depression
everywhere before the summer is
over, unless all signs fail.
MAKE IT A REAL CLEAN-UP.
LIKE the small boy with the dirty
face, some property-owners need
to be admonished unremittingly of
their negligence before ' action is
taken to clean up their premises.
So again this year attention is call
ed to the annual city clean-up day,
proclaimed by Mayor McCarty as
Monday, April 21, and the whole
hearted cooperation of everyone is
asked that the city's appearance
may be truly benefitted by the day's
Not alone from civic pride should
all householders put their places in
order. There is an old saying that
a man may be judged by the way
he keeps his house in order; and
that an untidy exterior appearance
is an indication of a disordered
mind. How much truth this con
tains, each may judge. But, if what
some women say about the way
other women keep house could be
heard by those other women, doubt
less they would alter their methods
of housekeeping. There is, then,
the personal equation to be consid
ered, and he who tidies up his yard
for the world to see will undoubted
ly gain in the respect of his neigh
bor. The chore will not be so trying if
one will but keep in mind that he
is really doing his bit of service in
making a city beautiful. Let's sack
up last winter's collection of tin
cans, garbage and rubbish and have
it at the curb in readiness to be
hauled away by the city trucks
Horses, more than any other farm
animals, are sensitive to abrupt
changes in feeding and in exercise.
Pollination by agencies such as
the honey bee are necessary to set
a good crop of many kinds of fruit,
says the Oregon Experiment sta
tion. It is recommended that the
bees be moved into the orchard be
fore the blooming period begins.
One colony for each acre of mature
trees is necessary to insure full pol
linization. There is only one way to be sure
potato seed is certified and that is
when a blue tag is sealed to the
sack with a lead seal, put there by
a representative of Oregon State
About 70,000 enumerators started
April 2 on the work of taking the
farm census, in conjunction with
the population census.
The use of large amounts of
roughage feed for hard working
horses is not only wasteful but det
rimental to the horses, says the
Oregon Experiment station.
Feeding experiments carried on
by the dairy department at Oregon
State college indicate that the feed
ing value of kale is nearly as great
as that of average corn silage, when
fed in the usual quantities. The
kale is lower in nutrients, but this
seems to be offset by its greater
succulence, palatability and vitamin
the childlike qualities that all must
cultivate are to be teachable, trust
ful, venturesome, obedient, loving
and truthful. When these charac
teristics are rightly developed there
is wondrous possibility of growth

fulness. Special emphasis is placed upon
making it easy for children to grow
into their full possibilities. Punish
ment Is pronounced against any
who place stumbling blocks in the
way of the children. The mill stone
referred to Is so big that it cannot
be turned by hand and an ass is
required to do the grinding. When
such a stone is tied to the neck
there is no possibility of anything
but death when cast into the deep
Even one child in any hundred
is Important. The story of the lost
sheep is positive in showing to what
lengths all ought to go in caring for
the life and upbringing of any little
one. As society improves laws are
passed that protect our children.
Herein Is a great test of religion and
It was some months later, as Je
sus was ministering in Perea that
children are again championed.
There mothers are bringing their
darlings that He might give them
His blessing. The disciples, think
ing to protect Him and His time,
forbid this. Then Jesus presents the
world with the precious teuchlng of
our Golden Text: "Suffer the little
children, and forbid them not, to
come unto me: for to such belong
eth the kingdom of heaven." Give
some attention to art and study the
many great pictures that deal with
Jesus and the little ones. For ex
ample, there is "Christ and the
Children," by Plockhurst. A copy
of this should be in the children's
department of every Sunday school
in the world. A copy can be bought
for a few cents as well as dollars.

When a reader finds something in
his newspaper about hormones and
vitamines and calories and food
units, and so on, I advise him to
read it, if its author is known as
reputable. I believe in one learning
everything he can about the care
of the body and the maintenance
of health. But I prefer to talk
about the common every-day things,
believing that I shall be the better

He took strenuous "exercises" and
plenty of cold baths, and, up to a
certain point, he seemed in won
derful vigor and endurance. He was
about sixty-two years old; had re
tired from active duty.
He had quite a bit of hardening
of the arteries, and was of spare
build. His blood-pressure was slight
ly above normal for a man of his
age, and my modest warnings he
took as just so many words wasted
even though he regarded me as a
very good prysician, one of the few
in whom he had confidence.
I was shocked at his sudden death
in Lincoln, Nebraska, some time
ago; a "stroke" of paralysis cut him
down. Here was a man who, with
rational care of himself, might have
been alive and well as I am today.
There is no argument in favor of
the faddist, nor against right living.
Our bodies must be kept comfort
able at all times, especially those of
fifty years and beyond.
