The dark hours seem to have
scattered among the pupils these
last few days and weeks. One rea
son for these dark hours may be
that the six weeks is drawing near
with examinations, book reports,
notebooks, and back work to be
made up. It seems that even though
examination week is very much
dreaded it is bringing us closer to
the end of school. We should not
want to have the days fly like min
utes. Do we realize that when we
are praying for school to be out we
are praying another day of our life
away? We should try to live a long
life and accomplish as much as we
can while we are here.
The cold weather has caused
many a gloomy hour. People are
kept at home by illness, or do not
care to venture out into the cold.
It seems it will never come to an
end, but if the groundhog is right
we will have only two more weeks
of winter. We should therefore try
to mako the best of these dark days
and think of the old saying.
"There are no clouds so dark,
But sunlight's piercing ray
Tells us that the darkest hours,
Are just before the day."
Mrs. Bloom is substituting for

A practice game was played by
the girls' basketball teams Friday
afternoon at 3:30. Although the
team was short two of the required
number of players, a very interest
ing game was played. Due to the
fact of the changing positions of
the players the score was not kept.
LaMoyne Cox rcfereed the game.

Engineering Jobs Exceed Grads
Corvallis The problem around
the school of engineering at Ore
gon State college these days is not
how to get jobs for the graduates
but how to get graduates for the
jobs. In civil engineering especial
ly and to a considerable extent in
other departments, calls for men
are piling up faster than they can
be supplied. Most of the demand
is coming from private industry.
the department heads say. Grad
uates of the school who may have
lost contact with the school and
are looking for new positions arc
urged to get In touch at once.
The proper treatment
for a bilious child
A cleansing dose today; a smaller
quantity tomorrow; less each time,
until bowels need no help at all.
ANY mother knows the reason
when her child stops playing, eats
little, is hard to manage. Constipation.
But what a pity so few know the
sensible way to set things right I
The ordinary laxatives, of even
ordinary strength, destroy all hopes
of restoring regularity.
A liquid laxative Is the answer,
mothers. The answer to all your
worries over constipation. A liquid
can be measured. The dose can be
exactly suited to any age or need.
Just reduce the dose each time, until
the bowels are moving of their own
accord and need oo help.
This treatment will succeed with
any child and with any adult.
Doctors use a liquid laxative.
Hospitals use the liquid form. If it
is best for their use, it is best for
home use. The liquid laxative they
generally use is Dr. Caldwell's Syrup
Pepsin. Any druggist has it.
Favorable Future Seen
In Farm Business Trend
Despite some counter - seasonal
decline in several lines of industry
from December to January, partly
owing to exceptionally cold weath
er, indications are that business
conditions will continue relatively
favorable through 1936, says the
monthly review of farm price, cost
and demand conditions just released
by the OSC Extension Service. In
dustrial output made an unusually
sharp advance during the last part
of 1935, the increase in factory
payrolls being over 15 per cent from
July to December.
The U. S. index of factory pay
rolls stood at 76 per cent of the
1926-1930 average in December
At mid-February, the general level
of iann prices was practically un
changed in Oregon compared with
January 15, when the
Oregon index of average
farm prices was at 72
per cent of the 1926-1930
average, against 72 'a
month previous and 66
1935. This ad
vance in farm
prices in Ore
gon has been
by a sharp rise
in the income
o f industrial
farm prices in
age 95 per
cent of the
sent level is about 31
points below the prewar
"parity" exchange value.
This is indicated because
the government index of
the cost of commodi
ties bought by farm
ers, interest and taxes
payable.is 26 per cent
above the 1910-1914
Each change of one point on the
thermometer of the general level of
farm prices in Oregon indicates a
gain or loss of approximately 1J
million dollars in the annual cash
farm income for the state.

compared with 68 for the whole
year 1935, 61 for 1934, 48 for 1933,
and 46 for 1932. The strength of
consumer purchasing power is an
important factor in the trend of
farm prices, although the supply of
the various products and other fac
tors also influence farm price
The report contains considerable
data on price trends of various
farm commodities produced in Ore
gon, listing in this way altogether
more than 60 products. Horses and
hogs are shown to be above or near
the 1926-1930 average; butterfat,
lambs, wool, potatoes and hay from
20 to 25 per cent below it, and with
hops, dried prunes and apples at
the lower end of the scale.
Index numbers of January farm
prices of representative commod
ities in Oregon in percentage of the
1926-1930 average given in the re
port Include eggs 64, chickens 73,
butterfat 81, milk cows 65, hogs &3,
sheep 57, lambs 79, wool 78, beef
