As school opens we hear much dis- cussion concerning the work (ff tile teachers. This week each teacher has undergone a scrutiny from the public that no other (:lass of public servanb., are called upon to bear, and lloue but the very highes! calibre of man or woluan can bear this (:lose iilspcction. Most of the Leachers in the scho(lls of Palouse have been s~an(ling up t:) this airing of characler and disposi- tion for several years, in wtrious com- Inunities, and the public in the I)lace ~xhere thene ~eachers have worked the war, but it never occurs to us to[2" Orders for individuals and conl- trill~ our expenses to lit the pr~sent~munities were received by County :l:~o::Iella~,~? h:~e lalle bTns:oi~ng atw~ [:~ngdn: O lrSf: lte~:h:rc:ni(~fdhe:f elide:7:I wall( to keep en going ~aster anti' acid were lurne(I over to Dean E.

The fact that they are here, that the hoard employed them, should establish their h reputation in this community. T eyi have lived exemplary lives and stand high in the esteem of the best people in communities where the)' have been. Otherwise they could not have se- cured sufficient recommendations to convince the school authorities here of their professional or personal fit- ness to teach. So let us give the teacher the ben- efit of the donbt and in case wild stories are circulated, as is often tile case, of some mismanagement of the teacher's work. let us investigate be- fore we give them credence. There are communities where an old gossip can throw a shawl over her head and start out on an afternoon and create disruption enough in a few hours to wreck the work of a teachers who is so far above her that she is not fit to tie tbe teacher's shoelaces.

There has been a great change in banking methods in the past ten :'ears.

I Banks loan money today as a buM- liens, l~ot as a favor to a llrivileged few. It is ti~e volume of small loans aud small deposits which have made t)l)~sible the growth of tile Anlericau banking syntem.

If we find them unequal lol devl(q)ment. the task here in Palouse there is but' - .... -:= one conclusion to draw That is this PICRIC ACID ARRIVES OCTOBER 1. conditions in Palouse are worse than they are tn other comnluntties. Other communities like our teachers. If we do not there must be something wrong with us. There is such a thing as a neighborhood making a failure of the school. No teacher rails pur- posely. ELECTRICITY AS GOOD AS GOLD. The value of the electrical energy produced by hydro-electric power plants in the mountain and PaciFic states during 1920 was greater than that of the gold produced in those states in the same period, by over two! times, according to Alexander T. Vo- gelsang, former fissistant secretary of the interior. The kilowatt hour production by water power, by public utility plants in 1920, as shown by the geological survey report was: Montana, 1,11S,- 905,000; Idaho, 58g,978,000; Wyom- ing, 2,271,000; Colorado, 184,674,- 000; New Mexico, 828,000; Arizona 106,527,000; Utah, 212,243,000; Ne- vada, 32,690,000; Washington, 1,- 154,659,000; Oregon, 370,867,000 California, 2,568,541,000, making a total of 6,340,659,000. As it is esti- mated that about gO per cent of the developed water power in these states is in public utility plants, the total production of electrical energy from water power would amount to about 7,925,000,000 kilowatt hours. At one cent per kilowatt hour this production would have been worth $79,000, as against the estimated gold production for the same states during the same period of $36,000,- 000. When power production in these states is properly eneouraged and fully developed the annual return from this source will far exceed these figures. This value comes from the same mountains which produced gold, but, unlike gold, the streams which produce power will not become ex- hausted, but will continue until the laws of nature themselves are re- pealed. The trentendous hydro-elec- tric power possibilities of the went are its greatest assurance or a won- derful Industrial future. SLOW DOWN THE PACE We are all screaming dull times because we cannot get $8, $10, $12 and $15 a day like we were used to getting during and immediately after Banks Will Lend Money to Aid in Securing Explosive.
