which he may be expected to earn
from then on. It costs the average

put him through high school. By
the time he is eighteen, however,
he is worth $28,654, again figuring
his potential earning capacity.

Cheaper gasoline and a smaller
surplus of heavy fuel oil are the
results expected from the adoption
in this country of a new German
process for adding hydrogen gas to
crude petroleum. This is one of
the revolutionary discoveries of sci
ence, which are being made so rap
idly that every Industry has to be
constantly on the lookout lest its
whole methods have to be changed
Not so many years ago gasoline
was a waste product. Then Daim
ler invented the gasoline engine and
that part of the petroleum sudden
ly became the most useful. The
Deisel engine, which uses heavy oil
fuel, has not yet been sufficiently
developed to consume anything like
the surplus left after the gasoline
has been extracted.
Thirty-seven ships of war steamed
into' New York harbor through the

160 Navy airplanes, loosed from the
deck of the airplane carrier "Sara

Navy men do not like the pro
gram of reducing armaments. They
would like us to believe that all the
rest of the world is watching for a
chance to pounce upon us and that
only an enormous Navy can keep
us from being gobbled up.
One does not have to agree with
their point of view, however, to ad
mit that a battle fleet in the Hudson
River is a magnificent spectacle and
that a flock of airplanes can draw
everybody away from their desks
and tools to the roof-tops to. watch
the show. We older folk will never
get over our wonder at seeing men
fly. To the youngsters it is already
Most people think that the brain
needs as much food as the body
does. People complain of fatigue
after mental effort, and because
they feel as tired as if they had
been using their muscles they think
they must have used up as much
energy as if they had been working
with their bodies.
Scientists at Wesleyan University
have been studying the energy re
quirements of brain-workers for
years, and have announced that all
of the energy expended In a solid
hour of the most intense mental
effort can be replaced by eating
half of a salted peanut! Five min
utes spent in dusting a desk con
sumes more energy than an hour of
mental work at the desk.
Much of the so-called mental
fatigue is physical fatigue. The wri
ter who is tired after a day at the
typewriter or pen is tired because of
the physical effort of writing. Many
who complain of brain-fag after a
day of business conferences should
rather complain of "talk-fag." The
physical effort of continuous speak
ing is a great energy-consumer, as
every orator and actor knows.
Most often, so-called mental fati
gue comes from the failure to elim
inate wastes properly from the
body. The one thing the brain
worker needs most is physical exer
cise in the open air.
FOR GRADE WORK
Mr. Will H. Hays, president of
the Motion Picture Producers and
Distributors of America, very cour
teously writes to me concerning a
comment in this column a few
weeks ago to the effect that the
movies do not give a real picture of
life, and sends me a quantity of
printed matter to prove that the
picture men are doing their best to
keep the movies pure.
Purity is one thing and intelli
gence is something else again. You
can lay down rules which if follow
ed, will prevent the movies from
giving offense tven to the most pru
dish mind. There are no possible
rules by which people who do not
know the difference between truth
and falsehood can be prevented
from putting false ideas on the
The motion picture is today the
most influential force in the world,
because it impresses the very young
through the most effective channel
for impressions, the eyes. For that
reason, the movies are a fair target
for criticism all the time.

The North Morrow County fair
board met with Mrs. W. C. Isom

directors will be elected. The fair
will be held at Boardman this year
and we are looking forward to
bigger and better fair than ever
before, which can only be accom
plished by the full cooperation of
the Morrow county people. The
present is a good time to start plan
ning for fair exhibits. Only a very
few changes will be made in the
premium list, so get out your old
list and see how many things you
can enter this fall.
Mr. and Mrs. W. C. Isom and fam
ily were all-day shoppers at Pendle
Mr. and Mrs. Vernon Jones mo

By increasing carrying capacity
Ladino clover pasture is reducing
the cost of butterfat production on
many Oregon farms, finds the Ore
gon Experiment station.
Weather conditions this spring
have been unusually favorable to
the development of brown rot in
cherries and prunes, and reports of
serious damage are coming to the
Oregon Experiment station. Grow
ers are urged to redouble their ef
forts to hold the disease in check
by spraying and dusting until hot
weather reduces the danger.
An easy and economical method
of freeing the lawn of dandelions
without too great a strain on the
back is by the use of a chemical
mixture made by boiling one-quarter
of an ounce of white arsenic in
one-half gallon of soft water. To
this is added one-third of an ounce
of caustic soda and one gallon of
water. The mixture is then reboiled.
A sharp stick is dipped into the
solution and pushed into the crown
of the plant. This is usually suc
cessful in poisoning the plants, says
the Oregon Experiment station.
Like a number of other diseases
that are favored by cool, moist wea
ther conditions, several kinds of
parasitic fungi which cause leaf
spots on bearded irises have been
unusually active this season. The
most important control measures,
says the Oregon Experiment sta
tion are of a sanitary nature, con
sisting chiefly in getting rid of all
old leaves and crumbled refuse of
the plants and resetting in a new
place when warm, dry weather ar
