When completed It will be a wonder fully fertile section, like lie ilelta lands near Clatskanie. where 2 ! tor of rutabagas are raised to the acre." Mr. Morris, who is fruit inspwtnr for Columbia county, says that wh-le Co lumbia county has been a great pro ducer of potatoes, only about 60 per cent of the former acreage will lie used for spud and the rest will go into berries, as the growers think there is mere money in berries. Mr. Morris, who is interested in swine husbandry, doesn't hold out much hope for the price of pork dropping "We used-to get 11H cents for hogs and paid SIS a ten for mill run; now we get 15 4 cents for hogs on tlu hoof and pay $56 a ton for mill run," he added.

No article of commerce Is doing more to bring this country into close teach with the mystic East than rub ber. The rapid rise to supremacy ia the production of crude rubber of the islands of the Indian Ocean, combined with the fact that America consumes nearly three-quarters of all the rubber grown there, has given many Americans an opportunity to peep behind the scenes and become acquainted with the lands and peo ples of that distant quarter of the globe. Although the whole equatorial belt in that section is dotted with rubber plantations, representing a capital Investment of nearly half a billion dollars, the thoughts of Amer icans naturally center on Sumatra where one of America's greatest cor porations has established a planta tion sa vast in area and so highly developed that it stands out as the greatest single plantation In the world. This is the plantation of the United States Rubber Company, com prising seventy square miles of grow ing trees, an enterprise marked throughout by a magnitude and an efficiency worthy of the best Amer ican traditions. By producing its own rubber the company Is in a position to estab llsh a uniformity In its manufactured product, especially United States tires, such as rubber manufacturers have lone craved. A THOUGHT A robin sang and its clear notes rang From the top of a stately pine, And the lilt It trilled, the bleak woods filled With a burst of long devlne. A soldier kneeled on the battlefield, Where a dying comrade fell; And the angels heard the whispered word That softened the parting knell. A daisy small by a garden wall Bloomed in the heat alone, And Its dainty face cast a lightsome grace O'er the frowning; wall of stone. The sons; of a bird or a whispered word. Or a flower's caressing smile, Tho. trifles small, may each and all Render lit worth while. " f, C. Haxton.

People's ideas are chang ing, too. They're beginning to fig ure out how much it is cost ing them to keep a car. And the man who is doing the greatest amount of figuring is the man with the moderate price car. There still seems to be a notion in some quarters that any tire is good enough for a small car. That's not what the man who owns it thinks. In recommending and sell ing U. S. Tires we are trying to see his side of the propo sition finding cut what he wants in a tire and giving him that til Large or small, U. S. Tirea are built to only one stand ard of quality the standard that produced the first straight side automobile tire, the first pneumatic truck tire. Every tire that bears the name "U.
