.Mark September the twelfth on your calendar as an Important day in
your life and in the future of the North Santiain canyon.
That dinner-meeting is attracting Interest from all over the canyon
country already. It Isn't Just another get-together. It’s a vital, throbbing
affair that's either going to enable the canyon to enter the future with it»
eyes open, or Its going to prove that we believe In blind progress.
Men will be at that meeting to tell us how we can find out how much
we are worth and how much we could be worth In the North Santlam
country. Experts on civic development will be on hand to discuss the
problem of getting a survey of our region taken. They will explain what is
and what Isn’t important In measuring a region's resources.
When we discover what our resources are and where they are and
what we can do with them, we will be able to look ourselves over anil see I
wliat we have to offer to Industry and our nation.
Unless we step out and support this meeting In the Mill City high school,
the canyon will be like a broken down 1980 automobile two or three years
after Detroit Dani Is finlshisl.
Our Ilves, our prosperity, our very future may very well be closely
linked to the success or failure of this meeting.
Every time the heavy clouds of an impending storm flirt with our
North Santlam mountains, we aeetn nearer to Korea. As the threatening
storm darkens the skies, so our thoughts are made blacker by the man-
made force gathering over the Orient.
Man’s war on man and man's view of nature on rampage seem one
ami the same thing—the same strange feeling of helpless restlessness strikes
us. What linen the future hold? Will the storm drench us?
Ho with storms and so with wars, the statesmen may shout, the news
papers may cry but what hurts are our own feelings. Home people like
storms, deans the air they say. Home even like wars. They make jobs,
end unemployment. In the end there’s a payment—but who sees the end?
Storms and wars reap a harvets of men's Ilves, fortunes and happi
ness. Man can't stop storms, but he can build Detroit Oanw to keep the
storms from causing too much mischief In the valleys. Man won't stop wars
either until he finds a way to dam up his hitter emotions and to permit
them to flow out gradually along non-destructlve channels.

How to Meet Problems of Met

Flagstadt on the Met payroll, the
natural question is whether the
