MAYBE IT'S SO.
COME time back a gentleman of
O Heppner was reciting the won
ders of the Okanogan country.
Among them he touted highly the
fame of the Ogopogo. This strange
water creature is said to exist in
Williams and Okanogan lakes in
British Columbia, and clear-sighted
Indians living on their shores are
said to have known of its existence
for years. "Time" reports that It
was first seen by a white man four
years ago when one Roderick Mc
kenzie, Cariboo member of British
Columbia's legislature was over
turned in his sailboat by wiggling
of the fabulous monster. It is said
to be a gentle creature 30 feet long
with harmless vegetarian habits,
having the peaceful face of a sheep
and the head of a bulldog. It pro
pels its long brownish-green body
through the water by four flippers,
occasionally rearing its head like
a eigantic water snake.
"Time," in reporting the Ogopogo,
gives little credence to its existence.
A correspondent in a later issue evi
dently holds the same idea. He
wrote: "About five years ago the
'Cnoritimists.' a musical review in
London discovered Jessie Matthews,
nnd trave her among others this
song to sing:
'I'm looking for the Ogopogo,
The funny little Ogopogo
His mother was an earwig,
His father was a whale
I want to put a little bit of salt
on his tail.
I want him for the Lord May
or's show '
or words to that effect . . You speak
of an Ogopogo in British Columbia.
Which came first, the Co-optimists'
Ogopogo or the Indians'?"
To which the editor answered,
Now we are not certain whether
the gentleman of Heppner said he
saw an Ogopogo or if so, under just
what circumstances, but we are
leaving it to him to put everybody
right on the subject
to befriend the Indians, and in the
main our relations with them have
been peaceable. We have felt rath
er sorry for them. In these recent
ears, and few have begrudged the
comparatively small cost of main
taining them on reservations and
giving them as much education as
they were willing or able to assimi
Now Mr. Charles J. Rhoads, Uni
ted States Commissioner of Indian
Affairs, thinks the time has come to
get the Indians off the reservations
and into the ranks of industry and
agriculture as independent citizens.
We think nobody will object very
much to that except the Indians
themselves. Why should they enter
into the fierce competition of civil-
zation, struggle for a living, when
Uncle Sam can support them?
The older ones on the reservations
will not relish being thrust out into
the cold, cold world. They have
been pauperized so long that they
probably could not make a living
independently. But if Mr. Rhoads'
plan is carried out for improved In
dian schools, which will teach the
young ones the useful arts, espec
ially encouraging me development
of their native handicrafts, in so
far as they have any, and which
will hold up before each Indian
child the understanding that even
tually he or she will have to take
the same chances that white folks
take, it may be that in another gen
eration the Indian problem will have
been solved because it will have dis
After all. it hardly seems lair to
have enfranchised the Negro with
out conferring the same more or
less doubtful benefit upon the Indian.

There is no doubting that this
earth was designed for the occu
pancy of man and for the lower an
imals, and everything needed for
health and long life was placed
within their reach and for their
'Civilization" has brought with It
many diseases unknown to the cave-
dweller, the primitive man. The
oldest man I ever saw was 101; he
had lived next to nature all his long
life; he had not tried to turn night
into day, and had lived the way God
intended him to live; long life was
his reward. It was no accident, no
freak of nature that he did this; he
simnlv obeyed nature's laws.
I saw a man this very day, tubbed
and togged in the very latest on
his way to the golf links. Apoplexy
was written all over him. He wore
a flannel suit, soft cap, knee bree
ches, flat shoes, and was smoking
furiously to keep his internal ma
chinery "hitting on all six." He
had probably never had his toes or
fingers In the dirt in his life nor
had he likely ever done a lick of
Here he was out seeking health,
breathing like a porpoise. He was,
doubtless, worth plenty of money,
man's goal these days, it seems. But
a careful observer wouldn't Insure
his LIFE for five dollars! He was
apparently between fifty and sixty
years of age the time when a man
should be at his best; dear reader,
would you be iu his condition for
what he has accumulated for his
heirs to squander? Frankly,
wouldn't, nor for a hundred times
We make a "great game" of this
life of ours, and call it civilization
and progress. Is the game worth
what it costs? If more people put
in a few hours of actual physical
labor each day, and followed it with
eight hours of good, sound sleep
there wouldn't be so many youngish
widows out in the social suburbs.

JUSTICE TO THE INDIAN
THE situation of the Indian in the
United States has long been one
of the curiosities of our system, in
the eyes of foreigners. They cannot
understand, in the flrst place, how
we ever took this vast continent
away from its original inhabitants;
least of all can they understand
how, having once conquered the In
dians, we have kept them as wards
of the Nation instead of compelling
them to take their chances with
The answer, of course, as every
impriran knows, is that the In
dians were never fit to control or
develop the resources of the coun
try, and the natural law of the sur
vival of the Attest operated to give
the white man control. From the
beginning, American settlers tried
THE TEN MONTH YEAR
THE latest development of the
new economics is the proposal of
Henrv Ford to make the working
year only ten months long, giving
evervbody in industry a two-monms
vacation in summer.
Summer, as Mr. Ford so truth-.
fully says, is no time to work in a'
factory. There are certain times, in
every industry when a shut-down
for overhauling plant, repairs, ad
ditions, etc., is necessary. Mr. Ford
shut down his Dearborn works for
a month this summer, keeping only
30,000 men at work making im
provements. Coming from anybody else it
might be laughed off, but when
Henry ForcV seriously proposes a
ten-months year he is to be listened
to. First thing anybody knows he
will put it into effect in his plant,
and then the others will have to fol
low suit. He doesn't have to go to
a board of directors to get authority
to trv experiments; he is his own
board. When he put the eight-hour
day into effect curses both loud and
deep rained upon him from every
body else in the automobile indus
try, where the nine-hour day was
the rule. Nobody would go back
to nine hours now. He was the
flrst to establish a minimum wage
high enough to enable the worker
to spend something lor luxuries,
TJnw nil ereat industries run on
something like the Ford wage scale
He put the five-hour day into effect,
and others had to follow.
One ereat advantage of the ten
month year, Mr. Ford believes, will
be a further reduction of unem
ployment. Forward-looking men in
economics and statesmanship now
hold that we shall not achieve com-
nlete economic independence for
everybody until all workers, at least
all whose work is of a nature wnicn
can be carried on the year around,
are employed on a yearly basis.
Few manufacturers are as yet pre
pared to hire factory workers by
the year, but if the commitment is
onlv for ten months it may come
any payday. With ten months' work
at good wages assured, he would
welcome the two months' summer
layoff, as a schoolteacher does. He
would not be afraid to make com
mitments based upon future earn
ings, for he would know that as long
as he did his job he could count on
getting his pay for forty-three or
From the point of view of democ
racy, Mr. Ford's project looks like a
long step towards giving the wage-
earner the same security that the
farmer or the salaried office worker
There's generally a hitch in it
somewhere when a person wants to
give you something for nothing.
Still it does sound nice, "without
cost to the taxpayer."
Probably the optometrists will be
the next class to call for legislative
relief. At least eye strain should
be less prevalent with the lengthen-
ng of milady's frocks.

AMOS, A HERDSMAN CALLED OF
GOD TO BE A PBOPHET.
Amos 1:1; 7:10-15; 2:11, 12; 3:7, 8.
Rev. Samuel D. Price, D. D.
This study in biography presents
the progress in history. The Jewish
nation had three kings in the uni
ted national life. Then came the
split, following the death of Solo
mon and ten tribes formed the
Kingdom of Israel while the other
portion was known as the Kingdom
of Judah. The northern section
started out wrong, for Jereboam
proposed that two calves be set up,
in Bethel and Dan, that the people
might make them centers of wor
ship rather than follow the com
mand of Jehovah and go up to Je
rusalem for the prescribed solemn
feasts. It was not long before Israel
did more than worship thus.
It will be remembered that when
there was apostacy after Palestine
had been entered that God raised
up a series of judges who helped
the people out of each emergency.
Something of the same method Is
seen in the study of Old Testament
history, following the division of
the kingdom. Now prophets are
called into service that they may
tell the people of their sins and
promise forgiveness if they will on
ly sincerely repent Amos is a hum
ble man thus called Into high office
as spokesman for God. This prophet
Is of a humble origin. He was just
a plain herdsman of Tekoa, located
about 12 miles below Jerusalem.
Part of his work was to pinch open
the growing sycamore-fig, for other
wise it would not ripen.
At flrst the message had been di
rected against the surrounding na
tions for they were grossly wicked.
To such deliverances the Israelites
listened with some patience, for it
Is always Interesting to hear an
other criticised. Then Amos went
about 22 miles northward to Bethel
that he might sell some wood In
he should look about to see how
Israel was progressing at this cen
ter of calf worship. What he noted
was shocking in the extreme. God
seemed to have been forgotten in
the present program of living. Self
will as the standard of righteous
ness of Jehovah was not even con
templated. Then Amos, at the fur
ther commission of God, set forth
the facts to his kindred. Their
exact sins were declared in no un
certain language. They were posi
tively wrong In the sight of God.
Right and worth-while ways were
indicated and promises of forgive
ness were made if they would only
It was expected that the people
would take exception but Amos was
the more amazed when Amazlah,
the priest, sought to silence him,
though he declared that he was
God's messenger in righteousness.
Amaziah appealed to King Jere
boam II, but the prophet continued
tn deliver his denunciations, inis
God-sent man would not be stopped
for he had a great rnission to per
form. Special mention was made of
the way the people had sougnt to
debauch the Nazirites. These men
had taken a vow not to use alcoholic
liauor as a beverage, but every so
ber Nazirlte was a rebuke to them
in their gross drunkenness. The
people had already said of their
priests "Prophesy not." Amos stood
forth In the face of such habits and
opposition. He Is quite like Isaiah,
described In our Golden Text; "I
heard the voice of the Lord, saying,
Whom shall I send, and who will
go for us? Then said I; send me,"
The application is far more than
admiring the heroic attitude of
Amos. We are to study local con
ditions and determine how we can
best represent God In trying to
make this old world more like the
Kingdom of God, which is always
In process of development. God will
commission everyone who Is willing
to help In the work of world betterment.
