HEPPNER GAZETTE TIMES, HEPPNER, OREGON, THURSDAY. NOV. 12, 1931.' PAGE THREE 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 high endeavor." 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 dering us 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 perdition. 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 depths than we have ever been since. 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 ful. I think now that both were bad mistakes. 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 RUBBER 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 water. 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. BEAVERS 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 beaver. the building industry and all of the other industries that depend on it FLYING 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. GARAGES 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 odorless. It costs nothing to be careful. For Rent 320 acres tractor land. Write A. S.

D19th 1931St pubIication: November FIFTIETH ANNIVERSARY RED CROSS POSTER BUILDING 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 money. 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 rCH "It takes a heap o' pennies in the bank to make it count." But while the kiddies are ac cumulating all those coins from various sources, they are being trained in forming a habit that is worth far more to thorn than cash.
