Ed Bucknum finished the placing
of the Geo. Washington marker at
artesian well park the end of the
week. After putting in consider
able time, he found a suitable slab
of rock which he prepared for the
bronze plate and all has been prop
erly placed. Materials for setting
the marker were furnished by Mor
row county and city of Heppner,
and the entire cost to the Washing
ton bicentennial association has
been very slight, Mr. Bucknum do
nating the greater part of his ser
vices. It is reported that a grass
fire at the well Bite destroyed the
most of the trees planted there, and
It will be necessary to do this work
over again, as it is the plan of the
association to make this an attract
ive little park.

is chance for profit, he thinks he
will be sitting pretty; the price is
the only thing in the way just now,

Wholesale Price Index
Up Slightly In Month
Although business conditions in
general in the United States con
tinued to decline in June, some en
couragement was had from a mod
erate upturn in the general whole-
sale price level since the middle of
June, says a report just released by

On July 9, the index of the gen
era! level of wholesale prices reach
ed 94.6 per cent of the 1910-1914
level, compared to vi on June la,
the lowest point reached so far this
depression.
The government Index or lactory
Davrolls declined over 4 per cent
from April to May, reaching a level
only 46 per cent of the average for
the same season from lvJA to 1HJ0.
The index of factory employment
dropped from 64 to 62, and the in
dustrial production index went
from 64 to 61.
The Dow-Jones Index of indus
trial stock prices ln the United
States declined 12 per1 cent from
Mav to June, reaching 47 compared
to 53 a month previous, lis in June
1931, 239 In June 1930 and 315 in
June 1929.
The Index of the general level of
prices received by producers for
farm products declined 7 per cent
from May 15 to June 15 to 52 per
cent of prewar. This Is a new rec
ord low point which is 35 per cent
below June 1931, 135 per cent less
than ln June 1930, and 160 per cent
under June 1929. The average ex
chance value of farm products on
June 15 was only about 47 per cent
of prewar, with livestock and live
stock products having a higher av
erage exchange value than crops.
Since mid-June the trend of prices
for some farm products has been
more favorable to producers. .

Comfort . despite the heat
I called on President Hoover the
other day. Outdoors the thermom
eter stood at 88 in the shade. In
thft President's office it was a com
fortable sixty-eight That is one of
the reasons why Mr. Hoover is able
to stand up under his heavy tasK
and still keep in first-rate physical
condition.
I went with the President to the
opening of the exhibition of the
Pantheon de la Guerre, the world's
largest painting, commemorating
the war. This is shown in a circular
sheet metal building which might
be expected to have the character
istics of an oven. But the same
air.conditloning used In the
pg offfce made lt comfort-
able even under a blazing sun.

cooled air In which it was difficult
L eyen most.fervent orator to
work up a perspiration. And
came back from Washington on an
air-conditioned train of the Balti
more and Ohio, the most comfort
able railroad journey I ever made.
Mr. Hoover believes, with many
others, that this air-conditioning
process, still in its infancy, is going
to develop as big as the automoDlie
industry,
Bonus . . at the front line
I half expected in Washington to
find squads and detachments of the
"Bonus Expeditionary Force" pan
handling all over town. I travelled
lumbia and except in the vicinity of
the B. E. F. Camp on the Anascos-
tia Flats I saw nobody who coula
be identified as a member of the
bonus-seeking army. I talked with
one man who had been active In
getting Congress to appropriate
$100,000 to send these men back to
their home states.
'Most of these chaps are decent
fellows out of jobs, with no
re
sources, who just came ior tne
lark," he said. "A few of them are
rather simple-minded people who
really think the government owes
fViam o litfino- "Rut In thp rpnfpr Is
1uite a stronS corps of Communist
agitators, who have been hopeful
that there would be some sort of a
military or police demonstration
that would give an excuse to start
shootine. The Communists are
looking for martyrs, but the Wash
ington authorities have not permit
ted themselves to be trapped into
anything out of which inflammatory
propaganda could be made. But
the B. E. F. certainly had some
members of Congress badly scared."
Guards . their assignment
United States goes, secret service
men accompany him. When the
ProsiHpnt'a r-flr ImvP9 the White

on motorcycles go ahead to clear
the way for it. He is never more
than few feet away from an armed

When Mr. Hoover went to the
openlng of a new spectacle in Wash
inirton last week, the ch ef of the
White House secret service corps,
with a staff of men, preceded him
by half an hour and made a thor
ough search of the building to see
that all workmen were out and that
nobody but those on a list vouched
for by the management was in the
building while the President was
there.

Beauty . . at Washington
Work on the enormous project of
improving and beautifying that
part of Washington which lies be
tween the Capitol and the Wash
ington Monument has so far pro
gressed that it is now possible for
the visitor to grasp the scope of the
whole work. Between the two main
avenues radiating from the Capital,
Pennsylvania and Maryland Aven
ues, is a great triangle which covers
nearly two square miles, with the
Capitol as its apex and the broad
park which extends from the White
House to the Potomac River as Its
base.
For more than a hundred years
the Government has been develop
ing this triangle into parks sur
rounding public buildings. Now the
huge Commerce Building, with
more floor space than any other of
fice building in the world, is com
pleted, at the northwestern point of
this triangle. The unsightly old pri
vate buildings fronting Pennsylva
nia Avenue have mostly been torn
down to make room for the new De
partment of Justice, Post Office De
partment and Interior Department
buildings.
When this work is finished cen
tral Washington will unquestionably
be the most beautiful city in the
world.

SOMETHING SIMPLE
I wish to ask that no more Plans
for solving the economic situation
be sent to me. My quota is com
pleted; my files are full. My men
tal decision to retire from flan
Readine was reached some time
ago.
An earnest gentleman witn
gleam in his eye got in anyhow the
other day. He asked me to read a
book in which a new prophet sets
forth a new religion. The gentle
man assured me that if only all men
and women could be led to think
the thoughts of this prophet every
difficulty would fold up.
While we talked I turned the
pages of the book, and after about
a minute I assured him that I
should not need to read it in order
to know that it would have no in
fluence. He was aggrieved. "You have a
closed mind," he charged.
"Not at all," I said. "I happen to
know what kind of words move the
world. I'll give you an example:
"The Lord is my shepherd,' etc
" 'Four score and seven years ago
our fathers founded on this con
tinent,' etc.
"Contrast these simple words with
a couple of phrases from your
book," I said:
" 'The definitely "anticipatory1
value of the self-protecting mech
anism of covenant obligations . . .'
" 'Expanding consciousness ob
tainable through the direct appli
cation of the method of cyclic evo
