date that has been set for Blossom
day in Salem.
After conferring with the frtilt
men yesterday. Manager MeCroskey
of the Commercial club, who origin
ated the Blossom flay i&ra. and mem
bers of the committee, divided to i"U
the probable tine for the event. It
is the opinion of fruit growers that
the valley will be beautifully a-bloom
by April 11. particularly the prune
orchards through which visitors to
the city will bo escorted on that day.
Blossom day will be widely adver
tised and it is expected that the city
will be full of visitors on the ap
pointed day. chiefly of people who
are not familiar with the beauties
and productivity of this section.
The committee will ask for the
use of automobiles which public
spirited citizens are expected to dv
nate for the day. A motor car ex
cursion will go from Salem through
hte Rosedale district and other p rts
alive with color at that time.

When the news of th military
coup at Merlin was received, the
workuen here, aa elsewhere, im

both sides, substantially agree that
this is what then happened: The
workmen offered to co-operate with
the police to guard the city, and
posted notices that looters would be
shot. Then they consulted the ma
jor commanding the garrison. He
declared that the soldiers would sup
port Kapp and proclaimed martial
law. He sent to Krefurt. a few miles
distant, where 2000 troops were sta
tioned, for reinforcements.
The workmen from the munition
plants in the outskirts began to con
verge on Ootha. having seized quan
tities of arms and several armored
cars. The forces engaged in fight

The workmen lacked organization
but were strong enough to expel the
small garrison. According to one
leader they realized that they would
be unable to resist successfully a
massed attack by the soldiers com

to avoid furthe- bloodshed.
