WORLD SMALL, AFTER ALL.
The E. L. Morton family came to
Heppner, when Mr. Morton was
made manager of the local branch
of the First National Bank of Port
land, to all intents and purposes
strangers in a strange country.'
But Mr. Morton and W. C. Cox got
to talking. Mr. Morton had heard
that Mr. Cox came from Virginia.
He said Mrs. Morton's home town
was Galax in that state. Coinci-
dentally, that was Mr. Cox's old
stamping' grounds, also. Mr. Cox
inquired as to the family name, and
found that he had formerly known
the family well, in fact had qnce
kept company with an older sister
of Mrs. Morton's. Mrs. Morton's
family had moved out to Idaho
where she met Mr. Morton and they
were married. Yearly since, they
have attended a reunion of Virgin
ians in the Idaho town, also attend
ed by cousins of Mr. Cox who re
side in the same vicinity in Idaho.

The public is fast returning to the use
of liquid laxatives. People have
learned that the properly prepared
liquid laxative will bring a perfect
movement without any discomfort
at the time, or after.
The dose of a liquid laxative can
be varied to suit the needs of the
individual. The action can thus be
regulated. A child is easily given the
right dose. And mild liquid laxatives
do not irritate the kidneys.
Doctors are generally agreed that
senna is the best laxative for every
body. Senna is a natural laxative. It
does not drain the system like the
cathartics that leave you so thirsty.
Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin is a
liquid laxative which relics on senna
for its laxative action. It has the
average person's bowels as regular as
clockwork in a few weeks' time.

Local Events Now Hold
Center of Stage in AAA
Local events within the counties
and even within the communities
hold the center of the stage just at
present in the Oregon AAA pro
gram, according to leaders in the
various educational and organza
tion movements at Oregon State
college. By the end of January
practically all county educational
meetings in the corn-hog adjust
ment campaign will have been held
and many counties will have com
pleted their local meetings and be
in the midst of the third series when
actual signing of contracts will be
Interest in the county meetings
has been keen and every indica

chairman of the campaign commit
tee for Oregon. Growers appear to
be satisfied with the terms of the
control plan-offered by the govern
ment and those eligible will in most
cases sign up, he believes. Only
scattering farmers throughout the
state are eligible under the corn
reduction plan, but some corn con
tracts are expected to be signed,

Clarification of a recent an
nouncement that milk marketing
agreements hereafter would be di
rected toward maintaining produc
ers prices has been given by direct
statements from Washington, D. C.
Both Secretary Wallace and his
administrator of the AAA, Chester
C. Davis, have stated definitely that
the only pr.ice agreements that will
be included in future milk codes or
that will be enforced under exist
ing codes, will be the schedule of
prices paid producers.
In some Instances minimum or
maximum resale prices will be es
tablished to prevent utter demoral
ization of a market area, but with
in such limits free play of compe
tition will be depended upon to reg
Indication is also given that the
AAA will not attempt to maintain
producers' prices much above the
legitimate competitive level pend
ing the adoption of a national pro
duction control plan. Every effort
is now directed toward launching
such a production control plan in
the near future.
