' When yon read this article try to
realize, that the banks of Salem are
doing all in their power to promote
"Thrift," It is also fitting that this
first day of the National Thrift cam

to realise that a bank takes care of
the depositor's money and must take
good care ; that the depositors can
have that money any time they call
for it. When you make a deposit Id
one of the local bank you are simp

Again you are 'simply playing safe
But. you are doing more, when you
place your money in a bank in fajct
you are doing a great many things
that possibly you never thought
much about. You not only save your
money in this way and safeguard
your business transactions, but you
help build up the city and commun

Business enterprises which are wor

up by allowing the banks to use
your moneyin fact the banks' of
our city are the very foundations of
the city's financial structure and
that structure can be builded only as
strong as we make our banks. If
we do not use the banks by deposit

industries and business cannot grow
as they should. Some outside capi

active part. . The bill was Introduced
by Ivan Martin of Marion county by
request. ' R. provides a penalty of
$25 to $100 fine for violation.
June Enter Ik-bate
Speaker Jones announced early in
the debate that he was ramlliar with
the intent of the bill as he is sec
retary of the Oregon Growers's Co
operative association, an organiza
tion which has headquarters in Sa
lem and which is planning a nation
wide campaign to create a demand
for Oregon fruit and vegetables. Mr.
Jones! took issue with Smith of Mult
nomah who took the position that
when I Oregon goods excelled and
dealers and 'manufacturers found it
profitable to label them Oregon
made the demand would be create 1
and the. goods would be labeled to
meet the demand as a matter of
course. Speaker Jones asked Mr.
Smith 'how the public would learn of
Oregon goods if the products were
not so labeled. Mr. Smith declared
the labeling of Oregon goods with a
false label could be forbidden but th-
labeltng with an Oregon label coull
not be' compelled.
Haines, Graham, Elmore and Den
nis, spoke against the bill as being
detrimental to the small packers and
canners who must sell their products
to California concerns. as they hav
not sufficient facilities lor creating
markets of their own
Jlrs. Thompson ia Favor
(MrsJ Thompson of . Wasco and
Hood River spoke strongly in favor
of the bill. She said that it was in
consistent to put on a. "home prod
ucts" week in the state and have the
legislature reject a bill requiring
Oregon labels.
Westerlund made his first speech
on the floor of the house in the pres
ent session when he spoke in favor
of the; bill. Griggs also broke his
silence to declare that if Oregon
packers put out a high quality prod
uct the public will demand the prod
uct and it should bear Oregon labels.
Gallagher Jocular
Mr. Jones and Gallagher engaged
in jocular debate In which both werd
agreed 4 Jones declared tht the de
mand win ne created witnin two or
three years for Oregon canned and
packed: fruits and merchants will be
compelled to handle it because of the
demand- Mr. Galla'gher agreed as to
the merits of the bill and said St
would help fruit growers In Malheur
county which he represents.
, .Mr. Gallagher said: "Yes. I am
going to put a nice little Oregon tag
on every bale of that wonderful rich
alfalfa we grow so much in Malheur
county f
. tMr. Jones asked: "Is it canned?"
Gallagher retorted, looking straight,
at the 1 speaker: "No. you eat It
