To the editor:
All of Europe is an armed camp,
indeed.' About all of the world is
preparing for war, so they say, but
1 do not agree. The purpose of Ger
many, Russia, Italy, Japan and oth
ers in preparing for war for years
has been to make war. That is, and
has been, their main business. Here
in the United States and in some
European and South ' American
countries tremendous expense has
been1' necessitated in making' arms,
airplanes and war munitions train
ing men for the army, navy, pilots
BUT NOT FOR WAR. On tiie con
trary this country and her neighbors
are preparing for PEACE. We want
no more territory. We have no as
pirations for bigger lands. We are
helping England, China, Greece, not
as an act of war but as an aid to our
peace. Whilst congress is debating
and appropriating billions, the ul
timate end in view is preparedness
for defense and not for aggression.
We honestly differ as to what will
be the best method to keep us out
of war. Remember there is this fun
damental difference between Amer
ica and the Axis powers: They are
following their professed and regular
business of war, pillage, and mass
murder; but we are asking and
praying for peace. Let's not forget
this all important fact.
Men Sought for
Marine Corps Reserve
Young men are being sought by
the U. S. Marine corps recruiting
service for enlistment in the Volun
teer Marine Corps reserve. Men en
listed in the reserve will be assign
ed to active duty upon enlistment
and transferred to recruit depots for
training the same as received by
those who enlist in the regulars.
If the Marine Corps is enlarged,
permitting a larger number of va
cancies for regular enlistments, they
may be discharged from the reserve
for the purpose of enlisting in the
regular Marine Corps, if they de
sire. The same standards and qualifi
cations that govern the enlisting of
men for the regular service will ap
ply in all respects to the reservists
enlisted. The term of enlistment,
training, duty and opportunities for
promotion will be the same as for
men enlisted in the regular service.
Although they are to be put on ac
tive duty immediately, a full four
years of active duty cannot be guar
anteed, as they would possibly be
placed in an inactive status if the
Marine Corps reserve should be de
mobilized prior to expiration of en
listment due to the termination of
the emergency.

For Business Supremacy

Farmers Study
Home Lighting
As more and more Oregon rural
homes become connected with elec
tric service, interest is increasing in
farm home lighting, reports 'Miss
Lois Lutz, home management spe
cialist of the Oregon State college
extension service.
Oregon has consistently had a
high percentage of rural homes
served with electricity, and many
of these wired years ago could mod
ernize their existing lighting sys
tems without much expense, to pro
vide beter light with less glare, says
Miss Lutz. Recent figures show that
about 42,000 of the 65,000 farms in
the state have electric service. Of
this number,'' approximately 4700
have been added by the eight REA
financed systems.
To answer the increasing requests
for information on rural home
lighting the extension service is
sued bulletin No. 531, some time ago,
entitled "Better Farm and Home
Lighting." About the same time the
United States department of agri
culture published Farmers' Bulletin
1838-F, "Electric Light for the
Farmstead.", Either of these may
be had free by Oregon citizens.
, Light specialists now recommend
much more light and better distrib
uted light in homes than they did
formerly. It is well for the eyes,
they say, if all light in a room is
well .diffused with a mipimum of
glare and with no sharp contrast
between lighted Objects and their
Ceiling fixtures in which bare
bulbs are used may be converted
into fixtures giving diffused light
by covering the bulbs with indiv
idual shades or by -using a diffusing
bowl, Miss Lutz points out. Methods
of making these changes at moder
ate cost are discussed in the two
Improvements of electric service
in houses wired years ago sometimes
involve putting in more convenient
outlets and switches. Double or
treble outlets in the living room
increase the number of table and
floor lamps the family can use, and
such outlets in bedrooms are equal
ly convenient for bedside lights and
lamps attached to the head of the

yon can make on the
Big New Ford tight now !
101! ,
You have TO get two things to complete a
really good "deal" when you get a new car
and your Ford dealer would like to have you try
him out on both! First, you want a good allowance
for your present car and all he asks is a chance
to make an offer! And next, you want a lot of value
in your new car and that means a Ford this year
more clearly than ever before!
This is the biggest Ford and biggest value in all
Ford history. Its passenger room exceeds anything
else in its field. Its soft and quiet new ride is one of
the motor year's most talked-about improvements.
Its engine is a smooth V-8, which you enjoy at no
extra cost for either gas or oil. And its bodies and
style are really new this year, all the way through.
If you're trading cars this year and want to be sure
you make the most of
your trade . . . the man to
see is your Ford dealer.
Now is the ideal time.
