Adair County Democrat (Newspaper) - July 5, 1929, Stilwell, Oklahoma BRAINS AND SOIL. MACDONALD READS HAZLITT. THE FEAR OF DEATH. A BRAVE COW. This nation, with its annual income of NINETY THOUSAND MILLIONS of dolIarB, treats education generously. But 'the value of education depends not on money, but on the brains on which the education money is spent. A crop depends not entirely on the seed, but more on the soil. Nearly nine hundred years ago, when Abelard taught logic and theology to young men in the University of Paris, they gathered in wintertime in a stone lined room, not heated, taking notes by candlelight. And many, too poor to i>ay for the candles, rJ'mled the church Mfeple on bright moonlight nightB, to continue their studies there by moonlight. A few such ftudents might be worth more to the world than a thousand million dollars of endowment. Edison gave to the world more ; v ney than wealth has tf\en to e'li'ation. So did Pasteur. Ni.trer ev^r went to college. Ramsay MacDonald, flying from Scotland to London in a British bombitig lpane, a parachute strapped over his leather flyinp, coat, rtad Haz-litt on the way. Hazlitt, who worked himself into a fury over the French revolution, quarrelling with everybody that did not approve it, little thought that within 100 years of his death, a Socialist Laborite would be Prime Minister of England without any revolution. ' Still less did Hazlitt imagine that a British Labor Prime Minister would fly to his work. Max D. Steuer, brilliant New York 3awyer, says the best cure for any man that fears death is Hazlitt's essay on death. Briefly Hazlitt says that, since we don't worry because we were not alive 100 years ago, we should not worry be cause we won't be alive or conscious a hundred years hence. In rural. England,,  a huge ,lio'ri, knocked out of his cage in an automobile collision, jumped into a cow pasture. A cow with a young calf dashed at him, gored him, attacking him again and again until he killed her. Others, later, killed him. The cow, not the lion, is the interesting animal in that story, for she represents mother love with its boundless courage. How many men would have attacked a lion with no better weapon than a icow's horns. Consider also the marvelous inheritance of memory. The cow's ancestors, probably, bad not seen a dangerous wild beast, in more than 1,000 years. But, at sight, the cow knew that the lion meant danger to her calf and rushed to the attack. Man is not the only animal "fearfully and wonderfully made." ROGERS ACCUSED IN REPORT MADE BY HOUSE COMMITTEE Three Counts Alleged the Examined's Office Illegally Conducted; Kill Ouster Move.

C July 2^- One week from yesterday-if President Hoover has' his way-the federal farm board will be a fact. Me Has filled three of the eight posts. Of the three others offered: appointments, one said today he had notified the president he would accept for oh'e year and Mr. Hoover hopes to have definite replies from the other two within 24 hours. He expects to complete the board's personnel by the week end. Charles C. Teague, prominent in Cal ifornia agricultural co-operatives, said yesterday in Santa Paula, Cal., that he had informed the president he was willing to serve a year. The White House declined to say whether such an arrangement Would be satisfactory. W. S. Moscrip of Lake Elmo, Minn., and Alexander H. Legge of Chicago, are those from whom early word is expected. Those who have accepted membership on the board are James C, Stone of Kentucky, C. B. penman of Missouri, and Carl Williams of Oklahoma Stone will represent tobacco, Penman the live stock industry and Williams the cotton growers. Teague ,is .identified principally with the fruit industry, Moscrip with dairying and Legge would represent general business inter, ests. If Teague, Moscrip and Legge are available, two places on the board will remain to be filled. As yet, the: president has appointed no one to represent the wheat industry. It is expected that, the eighth place will go to one experienced in the field of banking and finance, . as. Mr, Hoover, announced when he signed the farm bill that such a man would be appointed to the board. the taxpayers of Pittsburg county for ah audit arid then refusing to make a report after ' privately telling1' citizens that if he did some^'county^ officials, would be in the ipenitehtiaryj'refusing to file 'an audit of Grady 1 county1 he! made; nia^gsuch an 'uWcur*i& audit of Pontotoc cbtthty fr'at. tne audit was Inadmissable ad evidence" ina'coUrt, of record." :~ �*'''� .

CHAPTER ONE By The EDITOR This Is the first installment: of a series of stories of the doings of our county officials. We believe the taxpayers are entitled to know what takes place and we will do our best to tell it from time to time. The county commissioners met Tuesday and after taking a new member, Mr. Bamett, into their circle, they re-elected Charley Waters as Chairman of the board. The representative of the Adair County Democrat appeared before them and made an oral offer to the commissioners that if the Democrat were designated as the official organ of the county that the commissioners proceedings would be printed for S25.00 per year. They called the representative of the Adair County Gleaner before them and after due deliberation designated the Gleaner as the county official organ at the old price of $50.00 per year. Since both papers have been flying the Democratic banner during recent elections, it was not a case of taking care of the party organ, for two of the commissioners are'republicans. Seemingly, it is simply a casepf "to hell with the taxpayers." $25.00 isn't much, but it would put bread in the mouth of some starving man, woman or child of the county. There are many of these that have been turned down by the commissioners on account of lack of funds. There'll be a lot more of them turned down if they keep up this form of administration. We believe the taxpayers ought to know a few of these things. We have a few other interesting bits of information that we want to. give you at an early date.
