rOTtTLAND, Feb. 3. One of the

The reason for this trend to TCe
closed car is easy to diagnose. The
closed automobile combines comfort
with utility In a manner with which
the open car can nerer compete. Mod
ern' engineering methods have re
duced the weight of automobile chas
sis and body to such an extent that
it no longer is necessary1o make a
closed car weigh half as much as a
locomotive. Infact, the latest mod
els weigh surprisingly little more
than the open caVs and can go any
where that an open car goes, with
Infinitey more comfort In disagree
The number of entries of closed
cars already made for the Portland
automobile show emphasizes the
trend of the present day. The visitor
to the big show will see, however, not
only all the very latest types of
closed cars, but the latest models of
open cars as well.
In all 69 different make of pas
senger automobiles will be on dis
play, and 176 different models.
Still another feature of the Port
land show -is the truck show held In
connection with It. For the first
time on the Pacific coast a show will
be devoted exclusively to trucks.
The truck section of the show will
be held in the Portland armory, only
a few blocks from the Ice palace.
and one ticket will admit the bearer
to both shows without additional
cost. There will be 50 different
makes of trucks on display, and ap
proximately 100 different models.

At J o'clnok Monday morning at
the Commercial club rooms, a score
of business men gathered and start
ed out to romh ! r for the re
quired fund to iut Salem on the map
in boys' welfare work. These were
men of many personal interests
men who are making great sacrifices
in order to put the scout program at
the disposal of Salem leadership.
These men have studied the situa
tion carefully, know the crying need
of proper programs and methods

and they are sworn to pnt this propo
sition ever the top. Salem must have

time there is no other institution
caring directly for the needs of Sa

one solution of an immense problem

At the present time there are
nearly 1000 boys in this community
who are eligible for Scouting. Hoys
who are the making of men kho
will become men In a very few years
nd the city of Salem must awake
to the fact that now is the time to
prepare for the future.
T6 put a method that wltl work, a
program broad enough to cover all
abilities and equipment which will

gest job that any ; civic community
has ever had to face. Scoutine of

test. Scouting does work, and it Is
Salem's task to fire the boilers that
produce the steam where by 1000
of Salem V. boys are fed to the ma

manhood. Scouting is not a passing
whim. It has come to stay, if Sa
lem will only play the good host.

The Salerii business men- who are
trying to put this program over the
