W. C. T. U. NOTES
' MARY A. NOTSON. Reporter.
If the old 4 per cent by volume
beer was intoxicating, the new 3.2
by weight beer is intoxicating, for
they contain the same amount of
alcohol. Alcohol is the active prin
ciple of intoxicating liquor. If a
person drinks enough of it, whether
in beer, wine or whiskey, the effect
will be intoxication. A very small
amount of alcohol will slow down
the muscular reaction from the nor
mal one-fifth of a second to two
fifths of a second. In this machine
age, that one-fifth of a second more
of time between the time the eye
sees the danger and the time when
the muscles act may prove fatal.
An automobile traveling at the rate
of fifty miles per hour moves for
ward nearly fifteen feet in one-fifth
of a second. If an automobile is
approaching you at that rate and
the drivers' normal muscular reac
tion enables him to stop the auto
mobile five feet from you, you es
cape injury, but if he is one-fifth of
a second slower In his muscular re
action, the automobile hits you and
stops ten feet beyond the point of
contact The result may be death.
Do you want drivers of automobiles
to take that chance with you? One
tablespoonful of whiskey or one
glass of beer will make that one
fifth of a second difference. Under
our present laws, a man who has
swallowed only one tablespoonful
of whiskey or one glass of beer
could not be convicted of drunken
driving; but, if he could be convict
ed, if he struck and killed you be
cause his muscular reaction was
slowed down one-fifth of a second,
you would be just as dead as if he
had been noticeably intoxicated.
The Oregon Voter says; "Aban
donment of prohibition is facilitat
ing transition from the older to the
new deal. It looks like liquor will
lubricate politics for years to come.
Some new kind of saloon, probably
worse than the saloon of unsavory
memory, will absorb the wages of
the thriftless, whose families will
have to get along without clothing,
movies and college education while
the household head exercises his
constitutional right to treat the
crowd. All that the dries can do Is
JOHN JOSEPH 6AINS,M.O
I am thinking about "flu" this
morning. When one is in a battle
he naturally rivets a good deal of
attention on the enemy. I am los
ing a case of the dreadful disease
today, and that always hurts, and
makes one think how helpless we
are sometimes, when the odds are
too great My case now dying
is over 80. And she has been a
semi-invalid for years a neighbor
We learn something from each
case. This aged lady was eating
breakfast; suddenly she sank down,
her face on the table, unconscious.
She had a "cold" for a few days.
I was called immediately after the
alarming symptoms set in.
A straight case of influenza; It
came with a rush it came to over
power the frail old body. We put
her to bed, and gave her all the
concentrated nourishment and stim
ulation she would bear. There was
little or no fever but a distressing
cough; we endeavored to keep
down all the distress possible. Then
absorption of nourishment ceased
it was the end of life, hastened by
the advent of the "flu" poison,
one of the most treacherous I have
The object of this report Is, to
urge aged people to be careful and
pay attention to the moBt trivial
appearing "cold." It may hold
deadly poison. We should do our
very best to secure proper ventila
tion for our aged relatives. No
drafts that bring sudden changes
of temperature, yet plenty of pure
air of comfortable heating.
Influenza is one of the few dis
eases that I generally fear and
dread In old people. I wish we had
an established, reliable form of
treatment I believe In immuniz
ing vaccines, but they do not al
ways work as we would have them.
to register their votes of protest;
appetite, aided by greed, is con
quering moral assertion that ex

Soviet Russia has reached the
conclusion that intoxicating liquor;
is seriously interfering with the five
year plan. Hence, she is limiting
the number of liquor stores. This
may help a little, but it is some
what like the plan of destroying a
mad dog by cutting off its tail an
inch at a time.
IN OREGON HOMES
Oregon City Assistance in plan
ning low cost lunches or dinners is
one of the services given by the
home economics extension service
either from the central office at
Corvallis or from the various coun
ty home demonstration offices. The
Warner Grange committee of
Clackamas county was assisted in
planning such a lunch for the joint
meeting of the home economics and
and agricultural committees lately.
The lunch decided upon Included
Spanish wheat, parsnips and apple
casserole, sandwiches, custard,
cookies, coffee and milk. Each of
the 21 granges was asked to bring
certain dishes included in the menu.
Corvallis With a return of some
of the practices and interest of
grandmothers' day, Oregon home
makers are again piecing patch
work patterns and quilting them.
To meet requests for help in dupli
cating old designs for piecing and
quilting, Mrs. Azalea Sager, clothing
specialist In, the extension service,
has written two mimeographs, HE
447, "Favorite patchwork patterns,
and HE 448, "Simple quilting de
signs." Both leaflets are available
from county extension offices or
from the home economics extension
service at Corvallis.
Pendleton "I have had to do
some hard planning to get some
thing for nothing," says a Umatilla
county homemaker, "but here is
what I did. It is not much, of
course, but it has improved my kit
chen greatly and saved me many
steps. I had a dish cupboard made
with some glass doors we had on
hand. This cupboard cost about $3.
My husband made another small
cupboard for supplies. I needed ta
bles under these built-lns so I took
an old square dining table, pulled
it apart and put each half under a
cupboard to provide table space.
Doors were fastened to the table
and the sides closed in to provide
anotner storage space."
FIELD PEAS TO BE TRIED.
More tests of field peas grown on
land that was sumerfallowed last

county this year. Seed of the va

Agent Smith for the following

FORD .. becomes banker
By coming to the rescue of the
Detroit banking situation wenry
Ford has again demonstrated ' his
Dublic soirit. and probably has set
himself up as a Iresti target ior
the abuse of the envious.
Mr. Ford refused to become a
director or a minority stockholder
in the two big Detroit banks that
were in trouble, because he has or
iginal ideas about the way banks
should be run, which he couldn't
make effective if he were merely
one of a group. But he and his
son came forward with a proposal
to supply all the capital needed for
two big new banks to take over the

fair-sized wager that Mr. Ford will
Introduce revolutionary ideas into
banking and will be as successful
in that as he has been in his other
CASH it talks
Henry Ford and his son unques
tionably have more cash in banks
subject to check than anybody else
in the world. Yet Mr. Ford has a
profound distrust of most bankers
and their methods.
He told me how once, In his early
days, he set a trap for some bank
ers anu they fell into it He had
been told that a certain group of
bankers wanted to get control of
his business. He went to them and
"talked Door." They lent "m what
was then a large amount of money,
about half a million dollars. Short
ly before the note came due he
wrote them a letter asking for an
extension. The next morning the
head of the banking house was in
his office, offering an extension on
condition that Mr. Ford would turn
over a controlling interest in his
company to the bankers.
Ford's answer was to write a
check for the entire amount of the
loan with interest
"That was my first lesson in high
finance," he told me.
ORIGINALITY. . . asset
I have known Mr. Ford for
good many years. What makes mm
different from all other leaders in
business is that he has no fixed
"brain patterns." Because things

way does not seem to Mr. Ford suf

On Meeting an Objection
Every business man knows the
value of being able to sefise an ob
jection and meet it before it Is ad
vanced. Jesus knew that far better.
He went one night-to dine with a
prominent Pharisee. While the
dinner was in progress, a certain
woman of unfortunate experience
crept into the room and kneeling
down by Jesus began to bathe his
feet with precious ointment and
wipe them with her hair. Jesus
knew what that outburst of unsel
fishness meant to an over-burdened
spirit, and- accepted the tribute
with gracious dignity. But all the
time he was perfectly well aware
of the thoughts that were passing
through the self-satisfied mind of
"Ah," said that cynical gentle
man to himself, "if he were a pro
phet he would have known that
this woman is a sinner, and would
have refused to let her touch him.
He might have been tempted to
put his thought into words, but he
never had a chance. Quick as a
flash Jesus turned on him:
Simon, I have somewhat to say
'Teacher, say on." It was a half
There was a man who had two
debtors," said Jesus. "One owed
him five hundred shillings and the
other fifty. Neither could pay and
he forgave them both. Which of
them, do you think, will love him
Simon sensed a trap, and moved
I imagine the one who owed him
the most," said he.
"Right," said Jesus. "Simon,
seest thou this woman?"
Simon nodded. He began to wish
the conversation had not started.
When I came into your house,
you gave me no water for my feet,"
Jesus continued with that extra
ordinary frankness which cut
straight to the heart of things. "But
she has washed my feet with her
tears and dried them with her hair.
You gave me no kiss, but she has
not ceased to kiss my feet. You
poured none of your expensive il
on my head, but she has taken her
precious ointment, which she could
ill-afford, and anointed me."
rne dining-room was silent; ev
ery eye was turned upon the Tea
cher; the poor woman still knelt at
his feet, embarrassed that her lo
tion should have caused so much
"She is like the debtor who owed
the five hundred shillings," he said.
"Her sins which are many are for
given, for she loved much. To
whom little is forgiven, the same
loves little." And then with a
glance of infinite tenderness:
"Thy sins are forgiven," he said
to her simply.
It is easy to imagine that the
conversation rather dragged dur
ing the remainder of the meal.
