Official Paper for Morrow County
BY ADOPTING a new set of rules
which will make it very much
more difficult for the little fellow
with a few dollars to speculate in
stocks, the New York Stock Ex
change has gone a long way toward
curing the worst evils of specula
tion. In rigidly limiting the possi
ble fluctuation of the price of grain
to not more than five cents a bush
el in any one trading day, and peg
ging the price of wheat at 87 cents,
below which it Is not to be permit
ted to fall, the Chicago Board of
Trade has at least set up some pro
tection for the producer against a
speculative collapse in values and
makes gambling in the staff of life
less alluring to the professionals.
Both these great exchanges have
acted as they did only under pres
sure from Washington. It has
dawned upon the federal author
ities that no organization or group
can be trusted to purge itself of the
evils which it has countenanced
and which its operations involve.
The purging must be done from
without That is true of every hu
man institution. We cannot recall
one that ever reformed itself. Re
form has to be forced upon human
ity. The greatest effort ever attempt
ed by our Government to reform
business practices and bring about
better distribution of products
and profits as between employer
and employee is now being made.
It was quite natural that many,
perhaps most of those accustomed
to doing business under the old
scheme of unrestrained competition
should not like the idea of being re
formed. A great many still do not
like it; but are accepting the Pres
ident's code and organizing into
trade associations under NRA codes
because there is nothing else to do.
We are like the majority of
Americans, we believe, in hoping
that the New Deal works as it is
planned. If it does accomplish its
ends of putting people back to
work at better wages and so re
storing prosperity, we think that
most of those who are grumbling
now will forget that they didn't like
the idea. And if it doesn't work
well, we'll not be worse off than we
"THE regulation of the cotton and
A cigar tobacco crops by the Fed
eral Government is now in effect.
The regulation of wheat production
is practically in operation. Next
to be regulated will be corn and
hogs, so Washington announces.
Milk producers are under license in
several important districts.
We have started out, as a nation,
on the largest experiment in history
in this business of what Assistant
Secretary Rexford G. Tugwell calls
"a sensible working policy for our
Whether this policy will work or
not depends, naturally, upon indi
vidual farmers. Government has
no power under the law, as we un
derstand it to force any farmer to
keep land out of cultivation or to
reduce crops; it cannot dictate to
him whether he shall sow wheat or
corn, raise hogs or sheep. But it
can and does offer to make it more
profitable to him to comply with a
general program of adjusting agri
cultural production to demand.
This is not the first time in Amer
ican history that there has been an
attempt to control production. In
the early 1700's Maryland and Vir
ginia were producing more tobacco
than the market would take, so
their Colonial governments ordered
that no planter should plant more
than 6,000 plants for each Negro
slave between the age of 16 and 60!
As Professor Tugwell pointed out
the other day, France attempted
about the same time to control the
overproduction of wine graps; and
today France actually controls its
wheat acreage and imports so that
the French farmer now gets the
equivalent of $2 a bushel for his
If this allotment plan works it
will be because our farmers are in
telligent and far-sighted enough to
make it work. If the majority of
them do not cooperate In the effort
to bring American agriculture up
to Its proper place as not only the
major industry but the most uni
formly profitable one, the failure of
the Administration's plan will be
their fault and nobody's else.
Sulfur Helps Grant County Land
Canyon City Belief that a good
deal of ground In the Prairie City
section of Grant county can be
brought back to far heavier pro
duction by the application of sul
fur is expressed by R. G. Johnson,
county agent He cites an example
of the results of this fertilizer on
the Edgar Deardorf ranch where a
very poor alfalfa stand which had
been sulfured showed a greatly
thickened stand due to Increased
tooling, and other improvements.

Disarmament new concept
My friend Norman Davis, United
States Ambassador at Large, Is
hopeful that, after seven years of
discussion, international disarma
ment will soon get somewhere.
When I talked with him a few days
ago he was more optimistic about
it than I have ever seen him.
Nobody is asking any nation to
abandon its defenses. The program
which is coming to be accepted
most everywhere is that nations
should not be permitted to provide
themselves with the sort of weap
ons which are useful only for the
invasion of another nation's terri
If Germany had not had the great
Krupp and Skoda guns it could
never have invaded Belgium in
1914. Big mobile guns and big
tanks would be abolished by such
an agreement as the nations at Ge
neva are talking about Military
men are coming to realize that air
craft alone can never win an ag
gressive war, and that it is not
hard for any nation to protect its
coast against a foreign navy.
A few months ago there was a
real fear of a new war in Europe
Now there is a genuine belief that
permanent peace is close at hand
it is actual
A hundred years ago Europe had
a population of 180 millions of peo
ple most of them frequently on the
verge of starvation. That was as
far as the world had got in the 12
centuries since European civiliza
tion really began. Today Europe
has nearly 500 million population,
all of them sure of their food.
That is a lot of progress to make
in a hundred years. People who
talk of the "good old times" are
talking about the lives of the small
minority who lived in what was re
garded as luxury while the com
mon people were practically slaves.
Few of us would care to live as un
comfortably as the nobility and
royalty did in the old days, without
gas or electric light or even kero
sene stoves, without plumbing or
furnaces or even stoves. Forks
were introduced by Queen Eliza
beth, only a little over 300 years
ago, and soap was a novel luxury
for the rich in her time.
When people tell you the world is
going backward and that the age of
invention, beginning with the steam
engine, has not improved human
conditions, tell them to run along
and read their history books.
Land for all
There is land enough in the Uni
ted States nearly 20 thousand mil
lion acres to give every family
more than 60 acres, if it were divid
ed equally. If only ten percent of
the land is suitable for the growth
of foods, there is an average of 6
acres per family of four.
It seems nonsensical to talk of
anyone starving to death in Ameri
ca, when at least a living can be
got from the soil.
What we are trying to do, of
course, is to get more than a living;
to get a surplus for the desirable
but strictly unnecessary things of
Czecho-Slovakia is combining in
dustry and agriculture, by making
it possible for every industrial
worker to have a piece of land to
fall back on when industry is slack.
I think we shall also come to that
in America. It seems to me to be
the only permanent way of insuring
a gooa living to everybody.
Goodwill . . . from Seattle
When Edward Stevens nn ama
teur radio operator in Seattle, "talk
ing" by wireless with another oper
ator on Kadiak Island, off the Al
aska coast, was told that an Eski
mo boy there was pretty sick and
nobody knew what to do about it, it
would have bepn mijiv frw him in
have remarked that that was just
too bad, and think no more of it
But vounsr Stevens Isn't thnt nnrf
He has that quality of good will
toward otners which is the essen
tial basis of Christianity.
He had his radio friend on Ka
diak describe the boy's symptoms.
He telephoned them to a Seattle
doctor, who diagnosed the case as
probably peritonitis and suggested
that if there were any way to get
the sick boy to the hospital at An
chorage. Alaska, he tnicht hova n
chance. Stevens told the Army
wireless station in Seattle what the
doctor said. The Army operators
sent a wireless to Anchorage ask
ing to have a 'plane sent to the is
land to get the boy.
I haven't heard Whether the boy
got well or not but I salute Ed
ward Stevens of Seattle. His spirit
of helpfulness is what the whole
world needs more than it needs
anything else.
Dope ... a world treaty
The other day I had a visit with
Captain Richmond Pearson Hob
son, Spanish War hero and former
member of Congress from Alabama,
who has for years been devoting
his life to the effort to stamp out
the international traffic in narcot
ics, such as morphine, cocaine and
As a result of the work of the
commission which Captain Hobson
heads, organized under the League
of Nations, 39 nations have Just
signed a treaty agreeing to limit
the production of narcotics to ac
tual medical requirements. In an
other twenty or thirty years, Cap
tain Hobson believes, "dope" will be
so hard to get that there will be no
new crop of drug addicts and the
pld ones will have died off.
I think he is unduly optimistic,
but I hope he's not I have seen
enough myself of the effects of the
narcotic habit on men and women
to realize what It does to them and
to society, but also to realize how
hard it is to break an addict of the
Forest Report Shows
Trees Are Seeding Well
The annual seed crop reports
from the rangers on the national
forests in Washington and Oregon,
complied by the Pacific Northwest
Forest Experiment station show
that some seed is being produced
by all tree species in parts of the
region this season, but only in a
few places are heavy cone crops
Douglas fir, the most important
timber species west of the Cas
cades, was reported to have a heavy
crop in the Packwood Lake region
on the Coulmbla forest, along the
Sauk river on the Mt Baker for
est near Peshatin on the Wenat-
chee forest, and Kamela on the
Umatila forest, the heavy crops be'
ing mostly on young trees.
Ponderosa Pine is bearing a
heavy crop in the vicinity of Sen'
eca and Kamela, Oregon, and Pea-
hastin, Washington. Western red
cedar has a heavy crop aolng the
west slope of the Cascades but not
along the Coast or east of the
From the Mt Hood forest comes
the report of a heavy cone crop of
western hemlock, noble fir and
white fir, and from the Rogue Riv
er forest the report of a heavy crop
of western white and sugar pine.
These seed crop reports of all
forest trees sent in to the Pacific
Northwest Forest Experiment sta
tion from 40 localities on 20 nation
al forests serve as a guide for seed
collection activities of state and
federal agencies and private col
lectors. Private companies have
built up a sizeable Industry selling
tree seeds both to domestic and
foreign trade.
The seed crop reports are also a
fairly reliable indicator of the
amount of natural reproduction
that will occur on logged-off land
provided it is protected from fire.
As a. result of the moderately heavy
Douglas fir cone crop in 1932, seed
lings were more abundant this year
than any season since 1924 follow
ing the heavy cone crop of 1923.

Ask any ten people what Jesus
meant by his "Father's business,"
and nine of them will answer
"preaching." To interpret the words
In this narrow sense is to lose the
real significance of his life. It was
not to preach that he came into the
world; not to teach; nor to heal.
These are all departments of his
Father's business, but the business
itself is far larger, more inclusive.
If human life has any signifi
cance it is this that God has set
going here an experiment to which
all His resources are committed.
He seeks to develop human beings,
superior to circumstance, victor
ious over Fate. No single kind of
human talent or effort can be
spared if the experiment is to suc
ceed. The race must be fed and
clothed and housed and transport
ed, as well as preached to, and
taught and healed.
Thus all business is his Father's
business. All work is worship; all
useful service prayer. And who
ever works wholeheartedly at any
worthy calling is a co-worker with
the Almighty in the great enter
prise which He has initiated but
which He can never finish without
the help of men.
It is one thing to talk about suc
cess, and quite another thing to
win it. Jesus spoke of crowns and
died on a cross. He talked of his
kingdom, and ended his days amid
the jeers and taunts of his ene
mies. "He was in all points tempt
ed like as we are," says the Epistle
of the Hebrews. We have read it
often, heard it read oftener, but we
have never believed it, of course.

which Theology has given us makes
any such idea impossible.
He was born differently from the
rest of us, Theology insists. He
