HEPPNER GAZETTE TIMES,
HEPPNER, OREGON, THURSDAY, JULY 30, 1931.
When I was a student in Am
herst College, and my father was
preaching In Chicago, I used to go
home for Christmas on the Erie
The trip consumed two nights
and a day; but this was the golden
age when some kind hearted rail
roads were allowed to present free
passes to clergymen and their fam
ilies. Now the Erie makes fast time
and there are no passes; but the
memory of those old slow trips is
pleasant. My mother would pack a
shoe-box full of sandwiches and
hard boiled eggs and bananas, and
I had a glorious time; never think
ing' that it was any hardship to
travel slowly, but thanking my
lucky stars that I was able to get
home at all.
On one of the days preceding last
Christmas, so I am told, eight sec
tions of America's swellest trains
were required to leave New York
to hurry the youngsters home from
It hurried them home for what?
So that they could bestow a run
ning kiss on their parents, shed
their day clothes and change into
evening clothes, and be off on a
series of parties.
This is the world we live in. This
is the tempo of modern life. Any
of us old folks who decry it are
merely dating ourselves as belong
ing to a passing generation.
Yet, I personally feel a little sor
ry for these headlong youngsters.
Some surprise has been expressed
that young men wealthy enough to
own seagoing yachts should have
the courage to sail their own craft
in the ocean race from Newport, R.
I., to Plymouth, England, especially
over the dangerous northern route.
This surprise is voiced by newspa
pers and individuals who regard
courage as an attribute solely of
the so-called "working class."
That is a peculiarly American
point of view. We have come to
regard the man who does no useful
work, but lives on Inherited wealth,
as a feminized sort of person, unfit
to associate with "he-men."
The fact is that courage has
nothing to do with wealth, occupa
tion or social status. Brave men are
to be found everywhere.
The great gold reef in South Af
rica, known as The Rand, is still

cording to a recent report of the
company which operates this, the
world's largest gold mine. Since
gold was discovered in the valley
which the Boers called "Witwaters

lion dollars of the precious metal
has been taken out of this one
group of mines. Two hundred

Somehow it seems to me that in

I remember the Christmas when
my father presented me my first
watch a big silver affair that he
himself had carried for long years.
I was ten years old, and the gift
amazed me. It had never occurred
to me that I should ever own a
watch until I was twenty-one.
I remember how my wife and I
saved up patiently to buy our first
car a second-hand Ford. I re
member our first antique, whjch we
loved for months before we could
finally acquire it. And the joy of
seeing a savings account grow
slowly; and the thrill of building a
library, one book at a time.
Now the kids smash up a dozen
watches before they are six. And
they start life with cars, and with
furniture; and at twenty they have
rushed through all the emotional
experiences that lasted us leisurely
through forty years.
Don't mistake me. I'm a booster

be filled, brings up one difference
between public life in this country
and Europe. On the other side,
when a man embarks on a career
of public service he usually remains
in it, regardless of whether he
keeps on climbing the ladder from
one office to a higher one. If he
loses his seat in the British Cabinet
he is content to continue as an or
dinary Member of Parliament.
Thus at the present time there are
two former Prime Ministers in the
House of Commons, Lloyd-George
and Stanley Baldwin.
Two men who had been Presi
dent of the United States served la
ter in Congress; John Qunicy Ad
ams in the House of Reprsentatives
and Andrew Johnson in the, Sen
ate. Theodore Burton of Ohio, af
ter being a Senator went beak to
the House, to be elected Senator
again later. But the usual Ameri
can custom is to retire from public
life rather than take a "lower" of
fice than the one last held.
Dr. C. E. K. Mees, research di
rector of the Eastman Kodak com
pany, thinks people were happier
as a rule when they had fewer mod
ern Improvements. "
Of course, Dr. Mees is right. Hap
piness has nothing to do with mon
ey, possessions or comfort No
body can confer happiness; it must
come from within one's self. These
things which we lump under the
general term of "improvements''
merely give the individual more
time in which to pursue happiness.
All of those things do not make
happiness, however. The only
source of happiness is in fitting
one's self into the social scheme in
such a way as neither to interfere
with the lives of others nor to be
interfered with by others, and to
find something congenial with
which to occupy one's leisure time.
And that is, I am convinced, easier
to do now than it ever was before.
Thomas Jefferson's home, Monti
cello, at Charlottesville, Va., has
been bought by the Thomas Jeffer
son Memorial Foundation and re
stored to Its original condition. It
is one of the most beautiful build
ings surviving from our nation's
early days, and gains additional in
terest because Jefferson himself
was Its architect and it was built of
brick made on his own estate.
Few people today realize what a
many-sided man Thomas Jefferson
was. He was a successful farmer,
a leader in scientific reasearch, an
accomplished musician and linguist,
and the Inventor of the first scien
tifically-designed plowshare, of the
swivel chair and the folding buggy
top, among other things. His great
est achievement, however, was the
drafting of the Declaration of In
dependence and his devotion of the
remaining fifty years of his life to
the effort to establish the principles
of Individual liberty which that
great document promulgated.
The Jefferson Foundation is now
raising a national endowment fund
to provide an income for the main
tenance of Monticello as a shrine of
liberty. I can think of no cause
more worthy of the contributions of
every liberty-loving American.

Housewives Advised to
Pack Eggs for Winter
Not so many years ago packing
the winter's supply of eggs for
family use in water glass was in
cluded along with the canning of
fruits and vegetables in prepara

general, it would be an economical
one for many housewives to prac

chief in poultry husbandry at the

Eggs are lower this season than
for many yeras, Lunn says, and it
will cost less than 2 cents a dozen
to preserve them. His first advice
is to get good eggs the fresher the

Foreign Trade Shifts
Affect Oregon Farmers
Material changes in the foreign
trade of the United States in farm
commodities in 1930 as they affect
Oregon farmers are discussed In
the latest report on the agricultur
al situation issued by the Oregon
State college extensfbn service. In
dustries particularly involved in the
changes include dairy, poultry,
fruit and vegetables.
Exports of foodstuffs declined In
value approximately one-third and
imports fell off over one-fourth, ac
cording to figures given in the re
port. The decrease was due both
to lower prices and decreased vol
ume. Most of the exports consist of
grain products, animal fats and
oils, canned goods and fresh and
dried fruits. The Canadian market
took about $160,000,000 worth of
fruits and vegetables from this
country last year, most of which
was canned and dried fruit, but this
situation may be affected by a new
reciprocal trade agreement be
tween Canada and Australia.
Dairy and poultry products of
this country have met less competi
tion from foreign supplies during
the first half of 1931. Imports of
all dairy products except canned
milk have been substantially less
than during the first half of 1930.
Imports of eggs and egg products
fell off very substantially, and the
tariff rates on dried eggs have now
