SLACKERS OF PEACE
Looks as if we would have another Congressional inves
: ligation of the various government agencies for the relief of
' service men. But why so much costly and time-wasting in
vestigation? Why not admit that most of the work has been
- rotten and inefficient and consolidate these agencies upon a
. program of instant action for betterment ? It is all very well
to review the past to disclose what mistakes were made, but
it is better to go ahead with a promise to make no more blun
' ders and prove it. Legislative investigators will be fighting
the war over again for the next five years. There is serious
: question whether? the advantage derived will make up for the
waste to say nothing of the scandal and bitterness that
. : arises from any official inquiry. Nowadays a Congressman
, thinks he is making his mark and gaining political fame if he
T can Start an investigation of some kind. If a politician can
v think up something that hasn't been investigated he shows
greatness and class. Ten years from now some statesman
will achieve distinction and get his name in the paper by
starting an inquiry to prove that Sinn Feiners were hired
to train German cooties to bite American soldiers. Also
somebody will be trying to prove that Susan B. Anthony
started, the war with a prohibition amendment. They will
want to have the Anti-Saloon League searched and investi
gated. 'The investigation business is becoming the favorite
sport in American political life and it doesn't seem to get
anywhere, at that Los Angeles Times.

C : Twd million men marched away and crossed the ocean
to offer their lives in the cause of world democracy and world
decency and world peace: In every mouth, then, were words
of gratitude and encouragement for the hosts of marching
and fighting men; and pledges on all sides to "keep the home
fires turning and stand behind them in full measure of de
votion for their loss of time, their chance of loss of limb and
life and health and opportunities deferred or lost.

a great nation; as individuals.

blundering; of slacker procrastination; but every red blooded
man and woman in this nation, in this state, in Marion coun
ty: and in Salem, ought to highly resolve that there shall be

been presented to the state of
Washington by Robert Moran. Se

been accepted by the new state
parks committee and it will be
the first unit in a system of state
parks and highway camping pla

last legislature. The Orcas Is
land park completely surrounds a
mountain lake more than a mile
long. Adjacent to the new park
is Mount Constitution, 2100 feet
high and the highest eleration in

"Salem. Industrial conditions
are quiet, but the feeling exists
that business is improving and
that it will gather momentum
with the coming fruit and grain
activities. Industries are endeav
oring to stimulate trade by means
of publicity. Construction of new
public buildings, county road
work, and the forthcoming fruit
season are expected to abserb
many workers at present idle.
Lack or orders has resulted in
the curtailment of operations in
the woeten mills, a cotton glove
factory, and the lumber Indus

ber of dwellings are being erect

The above is the paragraph re
ferring to Salem in the current
review of conditions in Oregon
sent out by the Associated Press.
This is conservative.
"Many workers at present idle"
will surely be absorbed by the
road and building work, and es
pecially the "forthcoming fntit
season." Especially the latter.
The outlook is that it will Uke
all the men and women, and all
the boys and girls, who are will

THE SPIRIT WORLD.
Although Germany has not ex
perienced prohibition, the people
are displaying an inordinate and
uncanny longing tor communica
tion with departed spirits. There
are lines In waiting before the
doors of the mediums and clair
voyants of Berlin. Even the as
trologers and palm readers have
been trying to garner messages
from' beyond the' Styx. The eag
erness to hold communication
with the dead seems to be more
manifest now than : dnrlng the
war. Even the oulja board is
still worked overtime. Possibly
the Prussians are hoping to get
word from Bismarck or some
other of their eminent dead that
will help them to raise the money
demanded for reparation. The
Germans have done more than
their share to increase the popu
lation of the spirit world and it
is reasonable that they should
now have communication there

opening this week with the ap
