MAN In many forms
There is plenty of evidence that
the types of human beings which
now inhabit the earth are not the
only animals of our species that
ever lived. In Sumatra the natives
have long known of the existence
of a tribe of ape-men, who live in
an inaccessible mountain country.
One of these was recently shot, al
though it is illegal to kill them, and
the body has been sent to Holland
for examination by scientists, who
think these "orang letjos" may be
survivors of one of the races which
preceded the modern man on the
In the Sahara desert the bones of
several members of a race, which
was much like, yet curiously unlike
human beings of today, have just
been unearthed. Similar discover
ies over many years in Germany,
France, China and South Africa
lead to the belief that not one but
several different species of humans
and near-humans once inhabited
many parts of the world.
Perhaps the folk-myths of giants,
satyrs and earth-dwelling gnomes
have come down from remote times
when survivors of these primitive
types same into contact with our
own ancestors, who themselves were
better able to survive the changing
rigors of a developing world be
cause of their superior agility and

In Washington, during the War,
Irreverent newspaper men used to
call him the "Happy Sausage." That
is a somewhat strained translation
of Felix Frankfurter's name, since
"Felix" is good Latin for "Happy"
and everybody knows that a frank
furter is a sausage!
But the same men who nicknam
ed him used also to say that he had
the best-functioning set of brains
in Washington, and that was say
ing a good deal, in a time when
Woodrow Wilson and Newton D.
Baker were both there and using
Felix Frankfurter's appointment
by Governor Ely to the Supreme
Court of Massachusetts has started
a storm of protest, because he was
the champion of Sacco and Van-
zetti, whose execution for murder
was regarded by the radicals of the
world as due to their Communist
activities rather than to any real
proof of their guilt.
Frankfurter, since 1914 a profess
or in Harvard Law School, believed j
the two men were innocent, and
said so. That put him on the "black
list" of the conservatives of Bos
ton, who were sure the men were
guilty because they were Commun
ists. But great lawyers, judges and
statesmen call Felix Frankfurter,
the Austrian Jew who came to Am
erica at the age of twelve, one of
the ablest legal minds in the world.
ROMANCE on a door sill
Bob Millikan came back to the
home of his ancestors the other
day and made a talk to the village
folk on the occasion of the local
celebration of the Washington Bi
centennial in the town of Stock
bridge, Mass. He is known to all
the world as Professor Robert A.
Milllken of the California Institute
of Technology, and the world's
greatest living physicist, who dis
covered the cosmic rays.
He told us how his grandfather,
Dan Milllken, came across the
mountains from over Becket way, a
hundred years ago, as an appren
tice to Sam Pease, the village shoe
maker. He married Sally Pease and
went out to Ilinols to farm it in the
prairie country. His son Silas kept
on farming, but sent his boy Bob to
the University of Chicago.
And Bob Milliken came all the
way from the Pacific Coast the oth
er day because, as he told us, he
wanted to see If he could find the
house where his grandfather used
to "skive" shoeleather on the sill of
the back door. He'd recognize it
from the knife-marks left by the
shoemaker's apprentices. And sure
enough, he found the gashes on
Doctor Clyne's back-door sill!
It made all the Stockbridge peo
ple feel very romantic to have such
a living link with the town's past.
SANDERS of the people
Like speaker Garner, Everett
Sanders, the new chairman of the
Republican National Committee,
was born In a log cabin. He was a
member of Congress from Indiana
when President Coolidge made him
his secretary. In that job he won
from Mr. Coolidge the high praise
that he was "a man of great ability
Sanders started life as a clerk in
a shoe store, and sold more shoes
than anybody else who ever worked
there. Perhaps, his friends say, that
is one reason why ho understand

Children were stricken in widely

continued to develop.
Finally the mystery was solved,
doctor discovered a domestic ser

germs. Though perfectly well her
self, she took the disease with her
wherever she went. She became
nationally famous under the name
' "Typhoid Mary."
Times like the present produce

germs they carry are rumors and

things get to a point where Uncle
Sam is busted, then what good will
gold be, do you, think? Do you
imagine for one moment that, in a
period of general chaos, the mass of
people would deal tenderly with
those who had helped to bring on
the crisis by hiding gold?"
My general attitude in this whole
situation has been as follows: '
1. I pay little attention to the
market quotations on good bonds,
preferred or common stocks. Either
they are worth a lot more than their
current prices or they are worth
nothing. In either case there is
nothing I can do about it

50AC Now on Full Time
With Broader Programs
A 12-hour schedule daily except
Sunday has been resumed by KOAC,
the Oregon State college radio sta
tion, which on July 1 began a series
of programs which will include lec
tures, music and other talent from
not only the college but from Uni
versity of Oregon, and Oregon Nor
mal school as well.
Control of the station was recent
ly placed under the general exten
sion service headed by Dean Alfred
Powers of Eugene. Studios for this
year at least will be maintained
only at Corvallls as lack of funds
has prevented contemplated remote
eontrol connections with other cam
puses at Salem,
Under the new organization a
much broader list of program offer
ings Is made possible by bringing
specialists to the studios from Eu
gene, Monmouth and the Portland
extension center. The farm and
homemaker features as well as oth
er offerings from the State college
will be continued as formerly. W.
Kadderly, program director for
several years, continues as manager
of operations and programs and
head of the radio department of
the general extension division.

Where a little patch of land is
available it is used for garden stuff,
mostly, but sometimes a club mem

given the crops. The people are ap

It doesn't seem to matter much
where boys and girls live, if there
is any chance at all to carry on 4-H
club projects they do it in some way
or another. Take Kanawha coun
ty, West Virginia. It has the larg
est enrollment of any county in the
state some 1100 boys and girls. As
a farming section is has little to
recommend it. The county is most
ly embraced in the valley of the
Kanawha river. The country is
very rough and almost mountain
The young folks have to make
their own social life, and here is
where 4-H club work has "come into
the picture. It has provided a
means of bringing the young folks
together in a social way and at the
same time made their diversion
count for something in keeping up
the home and appearances. In
some parts of the county there are
mining settlements and here 4-H
club work is the only social diver
sion for the young people.
Club work was started when
some business men in the county
and in Charleston made funds avail
able to the boys and girls for the
purchase of pigs, lambs, chickens
and seed for club projects. Club
members have many handicaps to
contend with in such a county, es
pecially in the case of livestock,
Proper feeds are not always avail
able, nor shelter, and predatory anl
mals are a nuisance. So the work
is not up to the average found in
better agricultural sections, but
nevertheless it is supplying a great
