swer some of the objection
raised by "Volunteer Fireman"!
to the two platoon Rystem.
I think one of the main points
to '.fully understand and the
strong point that the chief wishe'i
to -make clear Is that hj wishes
t have a full set on duty at all
times to man sufficient apparatus
at all hours; o that, meal hours
will not lave him with a crip
It no doubt is true that other
c;tt?s did not adopt the platoon
system till their populations were
much larger than Salem's is now.
Hew-ever, these same places in.-t-talled
;separats departments in
'diferent parts ot the cities. The
Salem plan proposed Is to avoid
this expense, and at the same
time to make the department
more efficient, and I think this Is
the feature- that commends the
Let us give our chief sufficient
men to maintain twj platoons and
Hiifficient apparatus kj ithat the
men off duty who report to every
fire alarm will have proper appar
atus to man. and be ready f.r
every emergency call jand - we
would thus double ouri fire de
partment at a very small per cent
of extra cost.
It Is quite likely that Salem
should provide a budget for this
coming year for another pumper,
f jrv it is not a good plaji to rely
on., one engine under present
growth of Salem and the great
importance of giving protection
to those who coma here to build
homes and factories.

BUY FURS NOW
Furs were never destined to be in greater de
mand, than for this coming season, conse
quently we made elaborate preparations
months ago for fall and winter business, tak
ing unusual care in selecting the furs and
making sure that the, workmanship and
styles were right. T
Fashion demands a fur neckpiece for the
frock or suit, consequently we have assem
bled at Salem's greatest women's apparel
store, a varied showing of handsome pelts, at
. Kditor Statesman: I want to
&s v a word to the voters of the
city" of Salem in regard to the
two-platoon system to be voted
on next Tuesday.
I have two brothers who have
been in the Portland fire depart
ment for several years.' Ilefore
the Portland people adopted the
two-platoon svst-m iny brothers
very seldom had an opportnnity
u re with their families. They
were on duty constantly, ready
at all times, day or night, to go
to fires. The only time off was
at meal time, three times a day.
The Portland department decided
to Initiate a measure whereby the
firemen could be at home at least
one day a week, and the two-platoon
system was placed before the
people of the city of Portland;
and the measure carried. My
brothers now have an opportuni
ty to spend a little time at home
with their families.
I think the same opportunity
should bl given the fire boys in
Salem and 1 hope the people of
Salem will vote for the two-platoon
system and give the firemen
a chance to get away rrom their
close confinement for at least one
day each wek where they may
feel free to do as they choose and
be with their families and friends.
I hJpe this bill will carry.
