A Quick Millenium
When I was In London I read an
interesting, and rather pathetic,
newspaper article by the "baby"
member of Parliament His name
is Frank Owen.
He recalled his maiden speech in
which he proclaimed: "High hopes
brought this Parliament Into being.
We will make it a parliament of
He had been full of fine plans in
those days. For one thing, the tim
ber men were to have higher wages.
"We got ttiem another Is. 6d. a
week," he says, "and then the State
sacked some of them. -
"We looked forward, to the de
bates on unemployment and agri
culture and the mines," he adds,
"and spoke from the back benches
when the heavy guns were at din
ner." He was twenty-three in those
days. Now he is twenty-five, and
wiser. His hopes have faded.
He thought he was going to play
a large part in changing England
and the Empire. Instead of this he
is "spending his time answering
letters issued by organizations or
a) to open cinemas on Sunday
(b) to close them.
(a) to prohibit sweepstakes (b)
to extend them."
He has about reached the con
clusion that all effort is futile, and
that the world is on its way to
Some of us who are older can tell
him from our own experience that
he is now at the age of greatest
discouragement We, too, came into
life full of determination to set
things right instanter. We were
frankly critical of the bungling of
our predecessors. There should be
no more mistakes and no delay!
In a couple of years, we, too were
In the depths of despair, deepei

It is not clear to any human mind
just what is the whole purpose and
plan of human life. But two things
are reasonably apparent
First, it does not seem to be any
part of the program to have the
mlllenium come quickly or easily,
Gain is won only as a result of
sweat and blood, and time.
Second, as we get older we see
more clearly how destructive
would be if all the good ideas of
youth were allowed to become im
mediately effective. The first two
Great Reforms in whose service
myself labored were both success

So in our later years we give up
tne wea or a quick milennium.
Some of us do it in deep discour
agement Others say: "I cannot
lick the world, but there is one part
or it l can lick, namely, myself. I'll
see what I can do with that"
It's a good sporting proposition.
And who knows? Maybe the spread
or mat simple idea is the real plan
Mr. Edison died a few days too
soon to learn that the goal xf the
last great scientific quest in which
he was engaged had been reached
by somebody else. This was the
search for a new source of rubber.
Mr. Edison sought it in plants.
The new synthetic rubber is a pro
duct of the great chemical research
laboratories of E, I. Du Pont De
Nemours & Company, who have al
ready begun to build a factory for
its commercial manufacture. In
stead of being made from a veg
etable source the raw materials out
of which this artificial rubber is
made are coal, limestone, salt and
It is not yet certain that this new
rubber will answer every purpose
for which rubber is now used, but
for many of such uses it is said to
be superior to the natural product
At any rate, it gives the United
States an independent source of
rubber, from which we can never
be cut off again in time of war as
we were a few years ago, and the
supply of the necessary raw mater
ials is literally unlimited.
The most interesting thing that
has happened in my part of the
country fn years is the return of
the beavers to the Berkshire valley
near my farm.
It is pretty nearly a hundred
years since the last of the beavers
vanished with the last of the In
dians from Massachusetts, but a
few days ago some of my neighbors
observing that there seemed to be
more water than usual in the
swampy pond Just north of West
Stockbridge village, Investigated
and discovered that a family of
beavers had built a dam across the
little stream and were busily en
gaged in finishing up their winter
home. This is a dome-shaped
structure of logs and mud, with its
entrance under water to protect its
inhabitants from foxes, wolves and
other enemies. Beavers have nev
er been known to travel over land
and how these got to West Stock
bridge swamp is a mystery.
Unless they multiply and become
a pest, these new generations of
beavers will have an easier life
than did their ancestors. For two
hundred years after the settlement
of America by the English, beaver
skins were the main staple of com
merce between the northern col
onies and the old country. Literally
millions of beavers were slaughter
ed for their fur, the principal use
of which was to make men's hats.
Beaver fur is still regarded by hat
ters as the finest possible material
for felt hats, but there is very little
of it on the market, and the game
laws of New England today Impose
heavy penalties on anyone killing
the building industry and all of the
other industries that depend on it
Twenty-five years ago only half a
dozen people, friends of the Wright
Brothers, had ever seen an airplane
in flight Practically nobody else
believed it Would ever be possible
to fly a heavier than air machine.
In that year, 1906, everybody was
enthusiastic about lighter-than-air
craft The balloon with a motor
propeller, what we now call a dirl
gible, was the thing, but nobody
dreamed of anything approaching
tne united states Navy's new air
ship, Akron, which took 203 people
on a ten hour voyage the other day.
In the last few years there have
been wonderful improvements in
airplanes. It is probable that every
plane flying today will be out of
date inside of ten years and that
the plane of the future will look
and act entirely different from any
thing we are familiar with now.
This is the time of year when
many automobile owners commit
unintentional suicide by starting up
their cars in tightly closed garages
and not getting outside as soon as
the engine fires. In the past twelve
months the New York State De
partment of Health reports forty
two deaths from carbon monoxide
poisoning in closed garages and
forty-three narrow escapes from
death from the same cause. .
It is seldom safe to let a car run
at any season of the year without
backing out of the garage as soon
as the engine starts. Some of the
deaths reported occurred because
the wind blew the exhaust fumes
back Into the garage although the
doors were wide open. Carbon
monoxide poisoning comes without
warning, as the gas is entirely

RED CROSS POSTER
The biggest problem that con
fronts President Hoover's confer
ence on home building, which will
begin Its session In Washington
shortly, is the problem of finding
a substitute for the present system
of second mortgage financing. Half
the families in the United States
own their homes, but most of them
have paid much more than they
should have paid, because of the
high cost of second mortgage
If the President's conference can
work out' a nationally acceptable
plan undet which the young man
who has saved up a thousand dol
lars can buy a home without hav
ing to pay exhorbltant premiums
and Interest on the balance, it will
go a long way toward stimulating

pennies in the bank
