'Is It Safe?"
WITH 37,000 people killed by
automobiles in the United
States last year, and the National
Safety Council reporting such fa
talities, through February, up 24 per
cent over the same period last year,
it is time for everyone driving an
automobile to ask himself a serious
question. That question is, "Is it
Not only once, but every time the
driver backs away from the curb,
attempts to pass another car, or acts
in any one of a thousand ways in
whch he is endangering his own or
other lives, he should first ask him
self the question, "Is it safe?"
Statistics of the council attribute
the large proportion of automobile
fatalities to the "take a-chance" driv
er. And it is the "take-a-chance"
driver who is arousing a public in
dignation which will result in the
driving privilege being more and
more restricted to those who prove
themselves competent, not only by
physical fitness and technical know
ledge, but by actual experience rat
ing. Oregon already has taken long
strides toward making the highways
safe. And there is strong probabil
ity that when the new period for
drivers' licenses starts June 30 the
issuance of new licenses to many
now enjoying the driver's privilege
will be denied. Added to physical
defects and lack of proper know
ledge of car handling will be chalked
against many drivers the score, "he's
taken too many chances."
Society generally has been patient
and long-suffering in the matter of
automobile accidents. But more and
more is the responsibility for his acts
under the wheel being placed at the
door of the individual driver. Every
one who appreciates the driving
privilege should become cognizant
of the situation, and before doing
anything at all with his automobile,
remind himself again, "Is it Safe?"
He Gets the Breaks.
A W, CHARLIE'S just a lucky
XjL guy. He get's all the breaks."
Trite as the saying is, it calls for
repetition of a truism which is re
peatedly brought to the attention of
each new commencement class,
"Charlie makes his own breaks, and
therefore his heels are dogged by
F. E. Searle, superintendent of the
Henry Ford trade school, address
ing a "career conference" recently
in New York, said that personality
and imagination count for more than
"luck" and "getting the breaks," and
that, in fact, most of the good for
tune is placed in the lap of the com
petent and ambitious worker.
"Charlie" is picked from among
his fellows for the job higher up be
cause he evidences the knowledge
and application which mark him as
capable and reliable. Charlie does
not watch the clock and forget his
job the minute quitting time arrives.
He studies his job in relation to its
importance to the business. He sees
how he can do it a little better than
it has been done before, and through
his interest and accomplishment at
tracts the attention which brings
The "Charlie" theme is repeated
in the success story of every self
made man or woman. It's duplica

stant and continued study and work.
But it does reveal many opportuni
ties, even in the complicated econ
omic structure of today, for those
with the courage and stamina to
First a Newspaperman
THROUGH many years the Blue
Mountain Eagle of Canyon City
has served its field faithfully and
well. It has been a pleasure these
many years to exchange publications
with this esteemed contemporary,
and to drink at the fount of philos
ophy that has flowed from the pen
of its versatile editor, Clint P. Haight.
Through his forceful writing and his
equally forceful public delivery,
Clint Haight so claimed the hearts
of his people that they sent him to
Salem as their representative on a
write-in ballot. When the fire con
sumed the Blue Mountain Eagle
plant Monday night, Clint Haight's
first concern was his duty to his
public. There were other more phy
sically capable of battling the flames.
He was first a newspaperman, re
fleeting the highest type of devo
tion to his profession, when he
rushed to John Day to assist in is
suing a fire extra. May the Blue
Mountain Eagle not be long in re
covering from the staggering fire
blow. To Chandler and Haight,
those grand old newspapermen, our
heartfelt sympathy and Godspeed to
Low Cost Steer Ration
Aids in Fattening
The use of a small amount of cot
ton seed meal in connection with a
low protein fattening ration was
found highly profitable in connec
tion with cattle feeding experiments
conducted by the animal husbandry
department at Oregon State college
during the past season.
One pound a day of such meal fed
to each steer was found to be equiv
alent to three pounds of grain as
far as daily gain was concerned. Use
of the meal for a feeding period of
104 days was found to have decreas
ed the cost of production as com
pared with a ration without it. Ben
W. Rodenwold, assistant professor of
animal husbandry, in charge of the
feeding experiments, pointed out
that in his opinion the function of
the cotton seed meal was either in
adding extra protein, extra vitamins
or both, and that nothing would have
been gained by increasing the pro
portion of cotton seed meal to grain,
although that was not experimental
A car load of steers was used in
the feeding test and these were di
vided as nearly equally as possible.
One pen was fed low grade mixed
hay, seven pounds of rolled wheat
and one pound of cotton seed meal
per day. The other steers were fed
the same kind and amount of hay
and 8 pounds of rolled wheat per
The total cost for the feeder steers
plus the feed was $7.35 per hundred
for the first pen at the end of thje
period, and $7.57 for the second pen.
The feed cost per hundred pounds
gain was $10.27 for the pen receiving
the cotton seed meal and $11.65 for
the other pen. In addition the first
pen showed a little higher finish and
was appraised higher at the conclu
sion of the test.
For purposes of calculating costs,
the hay was figured at $8 a ton.
wheat $40 a ton and cotton seed meal
$5 a ton, a little higher than actual
market prices at the time.
The feeding project proved profit
able this year partly because of the
economical ration used and partly as
a result of a considerable spread in
price between feeder steers in the
fall and prime fat stock in the spring.
