  • Between 1914 and the late 1960s, the Champion Paper and Fibre Company published an internal newsletter, called The Log, to share news about the Canton mill, the community, and its employees. After 1940, news from the entire “Champion Family,” which included mills in Hamilton, Ohio; Houston, Texas and Sandersville, Georgia, was featured in each issue.

Attacks on the ·Patent System Industrial re earch Iaboratorie today constitute our o-re ate t ource of valuable inventions. Ju st before the war, over 0,000 chemist phy ici ts, engineer , and other tech­nically trained men and \vomen \vere employed in industrial laboratorie of t e countr). T he · great flood of develop­ment that pour forth from the e laboratories is amazing. Nylon, fluorescent li htino-, radar, synthetic plastics, fre­quency modulation, ata brine, 100 octane gasoline, synthetic rubber all came from or anized resea rch. The reason for these development is sim ple. Industry found that inve 'tment in re earch was profitable. One major reason re earch ha been profitable is the incentive that our patent y tem provide . Our patent laws ay in effect-"If you will give the public a clear, accu rate description of your in ention, the government will ive you an excl usive right t it for seventeen year . After that it becomes public property." Research Laboratory Two It is cl ar that if J udr e rnold views are to be accepted a he law 1 the land (the Supreme Court has n1 had occa ion to decide finally on th que tion, and consequently there some doub t a to whether it will be accepted) it will be mortal blow not only to industrial research but what i m ·1 important) it will mean that we can expect fcV:.er new deve opments of benefit to al l. The idea of granting a patent a a reward for creatin ?O~-e~hing the world ne~e r had previou ly ha furnished t mdivJduals and corporatiOns alike the mo t powerful incet t~ve to. i~vent. If this incen~ive .is to be denied to corpon nons, 1t 1s clear that they wdl d1 continue most of their n ' . . . . . . search actiVIties or try to mamtam the1r developments i secrecy. Whi_le in some ca se~, a for example certain chemical pre cesses, It may be practical to secretly make u e of an inver: tion with some succes , there is always th dano-er f th secret being discovered. Once it is di covered, anyone ma appropriate it .. On th e other hand, the n ·tructiori f ne1 machine becomes known to the orld as oon a it i put o, the market.

" ome few year ago the e11emies of our paten t system were in t he h abit of proclaiming that there were great number of 'suppressed' patents. A "suppres eel' patent wa ·upposed to be a patent of value that wu not being 'worked' beGHJ e of ome selfish motive on the part of t he owner, such as having an obsolete plant that he would be forced to . strap if he put the parent to work. T his story h a.s many variations. Then t hese propagandists propo ed new laws for forced licensing as a corrective meas- · us_e of this imaginary abuse of our pa tent system. In t he interest of determining the 'facts I issued an 'invitation in the News Edition .of Industrial and Eng1·nuring Chemistry to any and all chemis t s, who might know of such case . to report them to me anonymously, giving the serial number of the patent.

' Faith, a Supernatural Virtue ... Faith is accepting, or the disposition to accept, as real or true. that which is not supported by evidence." On a clear night, a we vievv the heavens studded with sextillion twinklin tar , innumerable planets, and accord­ina to orne cienti ts, perhaps, thirty-thousand million suns -~any of them a million times la rger. than th e o ne that \Varm thi old earth- we wonder how our sun, day after day, for thousands of years, ha. fou nd its. way sa felY thro~gh thi myriad of heavenly bodies, travelmg at such ternfic peed. The greatest mathematical geniu s, perha ps, :v~o ev:er lived on this earth, Isaac Newton, was puzzled, It 1s sa1d, until he realized that these things, including the ea rth, must have received its initial impulse from the hand of God that sent the stars, planets, and this earth spinning th rough the universe for thou sands of years. \Vhile it is too much for a Jju le finite mind lik . ours to orasp ·or understand, however, we are convinced that the hand of the Creator of all things, still holds the tbr ttle, and that they will continue to rotate in their orbits, until He who controls all things, calls upon them to be still. ''Faith evermore look upward, and d series Objects remote; but rca on can di scover Thincrs only ncar,-see nothing tha 's above h 1 ..

Teays, a Great River a Million Years Ago P rof.

This ancient river, Prof Ver Steeg claims, wa as big or bigger, than the Ohio Rive1 and its _bed more than 800 miles long, i now buried und the great mass of earth and stone moved by the crlacia sheets of the Pleistocene ice age. According to Professor Ver Steeg of the College of \Voo ter, this ri ver which had its source in the Blue Ridge regioJ of North Carolina and Virginia, drained larae parts of wha are now the states of Ohio; Indiana, and Illinoi ·.
