Official Paper for Morrow County

IT IS a .common saying that the
Winters are getting milder and
the summers hotter. Now comes
along the United States weather
bureau, which has been studying
the weathe conditions directly for
more than sixty years and by ref-
erence to old records for more than
a hundred years back, and con
firms the belief that the past few
years ha e been exceptionally mild.
Since 1908 the United States, es-
reciallv that part of it east of the
Rnrkiea. has been enjoying the
longest "warm spell" in history. The
average annual temperature has
been steadily rising for twenty-five
Perhaos it has begun to
chance. The Winter just pass
was not as mild as the last one,
which was the mildest in a century.
If we have a cool spring, weather
sharps say, we may look forward
to a cooler Autumn.
Just after the war of 1812 there
was a long warm spell, lasting more
than ten years. There was another
soon after the Civil War. But from
1875 to 1912 the summers kept get
ting colder.
What causes these fluctuations in
average annual temperature is not
yet clearly understood, but know
ledge of them is important For
one thing, these changes of climate
have a decided influence upon ag
riculture. They determine the
length of the growing season.
Wheat production has been extend
ing farther and farther north In
Canada for a good many years now,
A change of only two or three de
grees in the average temperature
shortening the growing season,
might materially cut down the
wheat area of our northern neigh
bor. Similarly, the northward limit
of the cotton belt is fixed by the
average annual temperature.
The weather is one topic of per
ennial interest Everybody talks
about it although, as Mark Twain
remarked, nobody ever does any
thing about it It is of interest to
everybody because it affects every
body. We have heard of lands of
perpetual sunshine, In which the
temperature never changes fro..i
season to season, where nobody ever
has to give the weather a second
thought We have often wondered
what the people of these happy isles
found to talk about And we also
wonder whether life doesn't get en
tirely too monotonous where Nature
itself never changes.
PAPER. THE country paper Is still the fa-
vorite paper with the women in
the Big City, according to the ques
tionnaire that has been answered
by college women, members of the
Panhellenic Association, at the
Panhellenic Hotel in New York City
of twenty-one national fraternities,
The questionnaire showed that
the novelists are right when they
call New York City a big place
where the small town people meet
Members of the Panhellenic Asso
ciation were asked a number
questions about their favorite pa
pers, their favorite news topics, and
their favorite news writers. After
giving their answers to these quer
ies they remarked that their favor
ite paper was still their home town
One woman answered: "I read
every item in the paper the family
sends me because it gives me news
about all the neighbors that my
family never writes me about My
family's weekly letter tells me the
news about themselves and that's
about all. The paper gives me all
the facts about the friends I have
known since I was knee-high."
Another successful woman in
New Yok City wrote: "After all,
the news we care the most about
is the news about the people that
mean the most to us, and they are
at home."

EVERY nation is governed by its
leisure class. That is to say, by
the peope who have nothing else to
do but govern. If the United States
and its governmental units are gov
erned by politicians, that is because
we have got the habit of paying
better salaries to professional poli
ticians than men of equal ability
can earn in private business, and so
we have created a leisure class
which rules us. They can afford to
do nothing else but run the affairs
of government
But we have another and larger
leisure class, which is beginning to
come into Its own. That Is the
grandmothers of the nation. Time
was when a grandmother was
thought of as having fulfilled her
earthly duties and as having no oc
cupation left but to prepare for
the next world. But that time is
long past Grandmothers today are
among the most active class in pub
llo life and affairs; not actually
grandmothers, all of them, to bo
sure, but women of the maturity
and experience of life which dis
tinguishes the grandmother type.
We are thinking at the moment
of the announcement from Wash
ington that Mrs. Nellie Ross, for
merly Member of Congress from
Wyoming, is to be appointed treas
urer of the United States, in which
capacity, among other things, she
will have her name on all United
States money. We are thinking of
Mrs. Ruth Bryan Owen, daughter
of the famous "Commoner," an ac
tual grandmother, who is to be, we
hear, Assistant Secretary of State.
We think, too, of Mrs. Wilson, who
goes by her maiden name of Fran
cis Perkins and is Secretary of La
bor in the President's Cabinet.
Those ladies, and many others in
public life, are symptoms of an ap
proaching government by grand
mothers. It may be objected that we have
had experience with plenty of "old
women" in the Senate an else
where, although not of the femin
ine sex. But seriously, who thst
knows anything about grandmoth
ers could object to having them
run the Government The greu
thing about grandmothers, as we
see it is that they know so much
more about the real things of life,
about human nature and how it
works, than the rest of us do. It's
hard to fool a grandmother; she
has had too much experience with
men and women and children to be
imposed upon easily. And when it
comes down to thrift to keeping
the house in order and saving ev
ery available penny, we would
rather trust a Congress of grand
mothers than' a Congress of politi
clans, any time.
Women cast one-third of the
votes at the last election. We would
be willing to give the women the
gi andmothers especially two-
thirds of the offices.
Farmers Try New Crops
La Grande Twelve new crop
demonstrations on acreages from
two to 40 acres have been arranged
by farmers through Union county.
Most are with crested wheat grass
though three each are trying flax
seed and alfalfa planted in rows
for seed. Duncan McDonald of this
vicinity is putting to the largest
acreage of these new crops, seed
ing 40 acres to flax and 20 to crest
ed wheat grass, reports H. G. Av
ery, county agent J. B. Weaver of
Union is putting in 20 acres of al
falfa for seed and 10 acres of flax.
Extension Records Broken
Dallas March broke all records
in the history of extension work in
Polk county for number of calls at
the office of County Agent J. R,
Beck. During the month there
were 589 calls either personally or
by telephone. Of these 84 were fai
mers seeking loans from the fed
eral loan office. In addition to the
office business, the agent made 79
farm calls in March. The usual
volume of office calls in Polk coun
ty runs around 200 or so a month,
Early Lambing Successful
Canyon City Grant county's ear
ly lambing operations were most
successful in the past six years, re
ports County Agent R. G. Johnson
Ewes twinned well and then had
plenty of milk.. Grass was slow
in starting but by April 1 condl

is plenty of feed before, during and

Wheat Production Off
In State and Nation
Paul C. Newman, Statistician.
March first planting intentions as
expressed by Oregon farmers to
the Division of Crop and Livestock
Estimates, United States depart
ment of agriculture, will' probably
show considerable change at actual
planting time due chiefly to unfa
vorable spring weather conditions
which have been so unusual and
the effect on the farm crop program
so pronounced that changes caused
by other factors are relatively in
significant This is particularly
true of western Oregon. All spring
seeding operations in western Ore
gon are delayed by continued col
wet weather. Winter damage here
was the worst in years so that crop
prospects now are poor. East of
the mountains reseeding of winter
killed wheat is progressing satis
factorily and is approaching com
pletion. The damaged acreage
ranged up to 100 per cent All
grass and pastures are very slow
in starting and the lack of green
feed is having a deleterious effect
on lamb and calf crops. One favor
able circumstance, however, is that
the slpw melting of snows has les
sened the amount of runoff and
made possible Increased absorption
by the soil and the maximum bene
fit will be derived. Some eastern
localities will be short of mois
ture, however, unless rains come
As a result of these conditions
the winter wheat remaining has a
very low condition figure and pros
pective yield is below average. The
present condition of winter wheat
remaining for harvest in Oregon is
very poor, the estimates, however,
anticipate normal conditions from
now until harvest which would be
for the most part favorable.
The United States forecast of
winter wheat production is much
below average due to present poor
condition of the crop in the great
middle west producing area, where
the prospects, are somewhat com
parable with our own Pacific)
Northwest from similar causes.

When Gideon called for volun
teers to fight the Midianites, thirty
two thousand responded, Gideon
looked them over critically. He
knew the conflicting motives that
had brought them there some from
mere love of adventure; some be
cause they were afraid to be taunt
ed with cowardice; some for plun
der; some to get away from their
wives. He determined to weed
them out at once:
"Whosoever is fearful and afraid,
let him go home tonight," he pro
claimed. The next morning twenty-two
thousand had vanished. Only ten
thousand remained.
Still Gideon was unsatisfied. He
hit upon a stratagem. Down the
hillside and across a little brook he
led the whole band. It was a hot
morning; the men were thirsty and
tired; and Gideon, standing on the
bank and watching, had a shrewd
idea that character would show it
self under the strain. Sure enough,
of the ten thousand, a vast major
ity knelt down and pushed their
faces into the cool, clear water,
taking long, refreshing draughts.
But a few were too eager. They
caught up the water in their hands,
dashed it into their faces, and h r-
ried across to the other bank, rest-
ess to be on
Only a handful; one three hun
dred. But Gideon kept them and
sent the rest home. Better three
hundred who could not be held back
from the battle than ten thousand
who were merely half-heartedly
ready to go. t
With the three hundred he won.

Diseases Lurk Unseen in

"No one on earth can look at

certainty which one Is better than
the other."
E. R, Jackman, extension spec
ialist In farm crops, and who knows
the Oregon potato business from
both ends, is author of that ch U-

things like soft rot, scab, and rhy-

"A nice smooth potato is not like
ly to differ in seed value from the
rough one beside it" says Jackman
in urging the advantages of certi
fied seed. "Frequently the rough
one may be much better, as three
of the commonest types of virus
iseases tend to make the tubers
smooth that do develop.
"Certified seed is that which
tagged with the official tag sealed

Why did America amass 740U
points in the Olympic Games and
their nearest competitor but 262 H?
Was it the climate? Was it the
technique and training? Was it the
spirit and stamina?
Various answers are being given
by those who analyze. Some think
it the scientific attention given to
athletes In schools. The co-ordinance
of mind and muscle has been
the study of scientists In the Uni
ted States. This possibly has some
thing to do with It
The executive assistant to the
president of the American Olympic
Games committee and Athletic Un
ion, J. Lyman Bingham, says that
the generations of tradition in op
position to alcohol have been par
ticularly important in raising the
ability of American youth. The use
of alcohol is specifically forbidden
among American athletes.
"You can't win with alcohol," was
the frequent word heard among the
2,000 athletes from thirty-nine na
tions assembled in the Olympic
Village, says the '"Christian Science

for the next Olympics will have It

One outstanding difference be
tween America and all other con
testing countries is prohibition. The
difference in scores is eloquent.
And some politicians want it
back! From an editorial in the
Los Angeles Times, September 3,
Connie Mack, manager of the
Philadelphia Athletics, says: "All
the umpires together have not put
as many players out of the game as
old man booze.
Alonzo Stagg, coach at the Uni
versity of Chicago, says: "Coaches
and trainers are dead against the
use of alcoholic liquors, even beer."
"The greatest of them all," Knute
Roukne, former coach at Notre
Dame, "demanded that the men of
his teams abstain from alcoholic
drinks both in and out of football

Most people do the very wrong
thing for an attack of nose-bleed
they ruch to a basin of warm wa

the nose as possible. I've seen men
try to drive their forefingers into
the nostril as far as .possible, for
what purpose they could not tell.
They snort, blow the nose violently,
rasp the throat, and do everything
to keep up the local uproar. Ev

is to try to quiet the nerves, cease
snorting, poking fingers and wash

Ability it's scarce
I am constantly being surprised
to discover that men who got along
more than passably well in good
times are utterly without ability to
help themselves in hard times. By
contrast, the proportion of first-
rate men with initiative, courage
and confidence in themselves, seems
pitiably small.

ago a man named William Shake
speare expressed the same idea
when he wrote":
"The fault, dear Brutus, Is not
In our stars, But in ourselves,
that we are underlings."

Work and the lazy
One evil result of the depression
and the vast expenditure of money
for the unemployed has been to get
millions out of the habit of work
It is so much easier to draw money
and food from the public and char
ity funds than it is to work.
We have been trying to hire
competent woman to do general
housework, In my family. Six re
fused the job because "it was too
much work," although my hundred-
pound daughter manages to do it
all in half a day. On inquiry we
round that each of those six had
been living comfortably without
working, supported by one or an
other source of unemployment re
In three weeks we tried out six
who were willing to try or so they
said. They were willing to eat and
sleep, but it turned out they were
unwilling to work.
Many business men friends till
me that It Is next to Impossible to
hire people who will really work at
their jobs. They feel that they don
have to work unless they want to.
I am afraid that those of us who
are willing to work will have to go
on supporting a huge army of non
workers, even when good times
come back again.
Business . . in chain gang
Adversity sometimes discloses un
suspected business ability in the
last place one would look for it
Carter Melvin, a Negro convict in
a Georgia chain-gang-, found
nickel in the prison yard. He got a
Keeper to Duy him a package of
matches, ten boxes. He sold the
matches to other convicts and
guards for a cent a box, doubling
nis capital. ie Bought more
matches wholesale and sold them
retail until he had a quarter. He
bought six packages of smoking to
bacco for his quarter and sold thai.-
for a nickel a sack. At last he had
enough to buy a carton of cigar
ettes, which he again retailed at
Carter has $20 now, all from the
original nickel. He has done bet
ter than a whole lot of white folm
who have let the hard times lick
them. And he has proved that bus
iness ability is not confined to any
one ciass or race.
Chicago it's fair
Anybody with half a dollar and
bus fare to Chicago any time after
June 1 can get more entertainment

has been crowded into one place in
a long time.
The Chicago Century of Progress
Exposition, although unfinished, has
already attracted more than 850,000
paid admissions. In seventeen prin
cipal buildings and unnumbered
smaller ones will be shown more
interesting and instructive exhibits
from all over the world than have
been seen in one place In Amerl
since the San Francisco World fair
of 1915.
It may easily turn out that Chi
cago's show, putting money into
free circulation again, will prove
tne stimulus to business that will
finally smash the depression.
