IIAS’I‘ September you couldn‘t have sold the Cleveland ln- diaris to their most rabid router for much more than a canceled two—cent stamp. And little wonder. After ap- parently clinching the town's first pennant in 20 years, the ln- dians flopped miserably in the stretch. IBut time wipes clean even the dirtiest slate, and with baseball still weeks away. the Cleveland rumble is starting anew. Two factors account for the Indian tans’ premature pennant flush: First Oscar Vitt, who weath— ered an abortive player putsch in June, has been fired. Roger Peckinpaugh has returned as ; manager. The fans figure that means harmony and peace on L, the Indian bench. 1 Second, Gerald Walker was I obtained from Washington in a three-way deal this winter which also brought Jim Bagby from Boston. That, the Cleveland fan tells you, insures needed outfield , power for Cleveland. I I! It WALKER, a clown by reputa— tion, joins his fourth major league club in nine years, which should give rise to considerable conjecture. When a player drifts as Walker has, there is usually a goodreason for it. Gerald’s longest stretch was at Detroit from 1932 to 1937. In 1934 and 1935 Detroit won the pennant, but Walker was not a 701‘s Oll as fingerprint. . ar Three 5 6 KM" stronger than regular.

Cleveland fans believe he’ll supply needed power in the outfield. find that Gerald’s fielding looks a lot different in 154 games than it does in only a few. He has trouble backing up for fly balls. He likes to turn over the more difficult chances to his teammate in center field, especially if the latter can cover ground. He is not a hustler . has never been noted for his bursting en- ergy. All of this—combined with the fact that the Cleveland clubhouse lawyers have won a striking vic- tory in ousting Vitt and will be riding high-may combine to make Peckinpaugh and Walker a couple of unhappy Indian ven- tures in 1941.

All Lane Chests specially priced for We Company I l l l l l l I l l l l l I l l l l l ROGER Director, National Farm Youth Foundation FARMERS MUST GET TOGETHER 1; With the coming of the New Year. men and women of the farm and village are facing prob— lems that will require unified and co-ordinated action. Otherwise. the interests of l rural communi~ ties will become subjugated to those of big cit— ies which are or— ganized to bring pressure to bear with regard to national policies. This city action is too often det— ' i rimental to rural K395 areas. Now that the winter evenings are with us. we folks in rural communities have more time to sit in our rocking chairs and think. National policies give us a l l i l I i great deal to think about. How—l3 ever. thought will not take usi far unless we add action. And action isn‘t worth much unlessI it is the combined action of a number of people with the same objectives in mind. Our rural communities have the farm as their foundation. '1‘th success or failure of the farm operation determines the successl or failure of the community which rests upon it. , Successful farming can become‘ relatively easy to attain through-I out the United States if the bur- dens placed upon farmers can be removed. Agriculture has been penalized too long. It is timei that rural America expressed it- self with authority and determi-i nation. We folks in rural commu— l nities must get together. EveryI day national poliCies are being chided upon which affect agricul- ture directly or indirectly. Un- fortunately. agriculture is not ren— dering opinions which are suffi- ciently strong to demand consider- -ation before these decisions are made. i When less than 50 per cent of , farm real estate is really owned 1 by farmers and that only about half this amount is in the richest agricultural states, it is easy to see that the farmers are receiving and will continue to receive a decreas- ing proportion of the agricultural l income. Farm purchasing power is thus reduced and the income re- ceived by creditors is increased. Under the economy of the fam- ily farm, which predominated in our early agriculture, expendi- tures for outside conveniences were held to a minimum. Today I canned goods and “boughten” bread are symbolic of cash ex— penditure made for the sake of convenience. Trouble started when convenience caused farm peoplej to lay out money for things that- could be produced on the farm with a minimum cash expenditure. . When farmers bought land, build- } ings and equipment, before they could reasonably afford them, I debts began to create interest loads. Today, as a result of being i so anxious for commodities to make farming more convenient, I the farmers of many communities , have been willing to discount fu- ; ture income 25 per cent to have i What they wanted when they wanted it. This has amounted to maintaining a standard of living by using up property. The result has been less of land i ownership and an unbearable 1 mortgage debt. This drifting into a morass of further debt can con- I tinue or be curbed. The choice is I up to every farmer faced with this i situation. 1 Some will say the causes differ I from those just described. For ex-. , ample, land speculation is consid- ; ered a cause of farm difficulties. 1 Of course, there are many such . things that put farmers in debt. ' However, there is only one basic ' thing: too many farmers failed to maintain a proper balance be- tween cash income and cash out- lay. 0 Those who turn to family sized ; farms and operate them on a family basis; with buildings and equipment designed to do the work I required on family forms, can re- turn, themselves.to the ranks. of the iarm ownch without morlv I gages.

Edith—ORGANIZATIOle oiling? PACK SLATED MONDAY EVENINGl Final steps in the organization of the Lincoln Cub Pack will be taken next Monday evening at a meeting of all parents of children in the Pack which will be held at 7:30 o’clock in the Lincoln school building. Between now and the meeting Monday all dens within the Pack will hold meetings to choose den mother., fathers and chiefs, the Some dens haVe already done so. Mon-. day’s meeting will select a Cub- master and other leaders for the Lincoln Pack, which is being spon- lscred by the Lincoln P.T.A. Parents of boys who will be members of the Cub Pack have now completed a special training course of three classes in which the fundamentals of Cub Pack organization, aims and guidance were taught by Allan Adams, Tumwater Council executive, and Dr. Eugene Browning, Tumwater Council commissioner. The Cub Packs are handled through the Boy Scout organization, in fact are in fact junior Boy Scout groups composed of boys from 9 to 12. years of age, just under the minimum Boy Scout age of 12 years: As outlined in the Cub Pack manual, the general purposes of he Cub Pack is roughly as fol- lows: “In every neighborhood can be found a “gang” of nine, ten, and oleven-year—old boys. There may be from two to fourteen or fif- teen boys composing this gang. They form a natural neighbor- hood play group and most of their leisure time will be spent playing together. They have no adult. leadership and most of the plans they originate for their leisure time activities are mean- ingless. This is the group that Activians Over Much Territory Through the medium of motion pictures, Activians last night went beating in Hood Canal, fishing in the Pacific Ocean off Astoria, Or‘e- I gon. took a. trip east via. airplane; and return through the southern states in a new car, visited log—. gmg camps in Mason County andl claw scenery of the unmatchedl l l Pictures Whisk i Olympia Mountains and Hood Canal.
