THIS IS A FLYING YEAR,
PERHAPS the time is not so far
distant, after all, when people
going to Europe will go by airplane
if they are in a hurry. It seems al
most certain that it won't be long
now before mail matter will be car
ried across the ocean hi a day or
so, so fast and far has aviation
Look at what has been going on
in the air in the past few weeks.
Here we have Lindbergh and his
brave young wife flying to Green
land to pick out a good landing
place for planes on a proposed pos
tal route to Europe. Most people
think of the southern route across
the Atlantic, by way of Bermuda
and the Azores, because of weather
conditions. But the Greenland
route is far shorter, and it is get
ting so that planes can fly in the
northern latitudes much more safe
ly than formerly.
General Balbo and his 24 Italian
army planes came over by the
northern route, via Iceland, which
isn't as cold as its name implies be
cause of the great volcanic hot
springs which modify the climate
and enable everybody to keep his
house warm without fuel.
Here's Wiley Post, making his
second flight around the world in
the same plane. He crashed once
but didn't do any serious damage
to himself or his plane. And here
are the Mollisons, husband and
wife, who flew safely from Wales
to Bridgeport, Conn., and only
crashed on landing in the dark be'
cause they got into a mud-flat near
the landing field. And we've all
read about brave Jimmy Mattern
who, crashing in the Siberian wil
derness, was resourceful enough to
keep himself alive for seven days,
by shooting game and catching fish,
. Lincoln Ellsworth is getting ready
for a flight to the South Pole.
Crossing the American continent
between daylight and dark is so
commonplace that nobody paid
much attention when Ameila Ear
hart did it again in record time not
The rising generation will learn

MENTS. WE DO not quite understand why
folks should be saying that the
World Economic Conference in
London has been a failure, when
the United States comes out of it
within six weeks with two import
Our delegation succeeded beyond
expectations in getting all of the
nations in the world which have an
interest in silver to sign an agree
ment which is calculated to put the
price of silver up to where it was
before the war, or higher. That is
important to the United States for
several reasons. For one thing, it
will be profitable to our producers
of silver, but of grater importance
is the fact that It will increase the
value of silver money of India,
China, Mexico and other silver-using
nations, making it easier for
them to buy our cotton and wheat
and other commodities, and at the
same time making it harder for
them to undersell us in the compet
itive markets of the world.
Another plum which we seem to
have picked at London is the inter
national agreement for contolling
the production of wheat, and so
keeping the price up in foreign
trade. This will benefit directly a
much larger number of American
producers than will the silver
agreement, atlhough its effect on
the total of world commodity prices
may not be as great.
Of course, some of the nations,
like France, who went to the con
ference determined to give nothing
and take everything, are crying
- lanure. Kut when it comes to
international agreements, those
necessarily take time, and the time
that has been spent in each nation
getting the others' points of view
has not been wasted. Such under

What was this Christ wanted peo
ple to have in God? What is
FAITH? The lexicographer says
FAITH is, among other things,
"Inward acceptance of a personal
ity as real and trustworthy." Again,
"The recognition of Spiritual real
ities and moral principles as of
paramount authority and supreme
value." FAITH is also "utter be
lief" in a personality or authority;
"absolute trust" in, or "confidence"
in, a personality or movement.
FAITH is also, "loyalty to trusted
And as we note what the varoius
definitions set forth on FAITH,
very clearly it comes to us what
Christ meant when He said, "Have
FAITH in God." Have utter belief
and confidence in Him as the great

a great all-wise and all-powerful

Wheat Prices Still Far
From Desired "Parity"
With the whole theory of the ag
ricultural adjustment act based on
means of obtaining "parity prices"
for the farmers' products, increased
interest, is being shown in the
changing relationships between the
things farmers sell and those that
they buy, according to L. R. Breit
haupt, extension economist at Ore
gon State college. This is particu
larly true as to wheat now the ob
ject of a definite control program.
The government index of prices
paid by farmers as of July 15 is 105
per cent of the 1910-1914 average,
now used as the normal period.
This is two points rise since June
and five points since March. As
this index goes up so will the price
of farm products need to rise if a
fair purchasing power is to be at
The average farm price of wheat
on July 15 had risen to 86.9 cents a
bushel, or almost as high as the
pre-war average, but since that
time the price has gone down and
commodity prices have probably
raised somewhat above the 105 in
dex, so parity is not yet in sight
As for Oregon, the farm price of
wheat has not reached any such
figure, as,an unusually large spread
has developed between Pacific coast
cash wheat prices and those at
Chicago. This has amounted at
times to between 20 and 30 cents a
bushel. When one adds to this the
freight charges from farm to ter
minal, it is seen that the "front
page" report of Chicago futures
prices Is far above what the Ore
gon farmer can get for his wheat
This abnormal spread between
Pacific Northwest and Chicago
is blamed on the excessive stored
supplies of wheat in this territory
resulting from near collapse of the
export outlet the last two years. In
an effort to correct this situation

and avoid dumping the western
wheat on the eastern markets via
the Panama canal, the agricultural
adjustment administration is ser

percentage of the Income from the
processing tax on wheat to estab

It is stated, would not only restore
the normal relationship between
Chicago and western marktts but
would also protect the markets of
the entire country from being de
pressed by distress selling of Pa

With this widening spread of
wheat prices coupled with the fact
that western farmers usually have
to pay somewhat higher prices than
the national average, little hope is
seen for attaining "parity" for
northwestern wheat growers unless
some such method is found for re
ducing the burdensome export sur
