Uniform Closing Held
Till First of Year
Owing to the tact that the holi
day season is fast approaching, no
further efforts will be made to
secure uniform closing hours of
retail stores in Salem, according
to P. B. Keaney of the Business
Men's elague.
After January 1, it is thought
that all stores will join in the
movement for 6 o'clock closing,
and this refers especially to Satur
day evenings. The Jewelers espe
cially want to remain open Satur
day evenings until 7 o'clock, but
It is undersood they will fall in
line with the 6 o'clock closing
after January 1.
All grocers and meat markets
have agreed to the 7 o'clock clos
ing Saturday evenings. ' Milliners
are unanimous for 6 o'clock -fclos-

eration, Mr. Keaney isays mer

Oregon Leads West In
National Guard Personnel
In proportion to its population,
the Btate of Oregon ahs a larger
membership in its national guard
than California . or Washington.
This is in accordance with reports
received yesterday at the adjutant
general's office In Salem.
Oregon was one of the first
states in tho west to organize its
rational guard following the war,
and one of the first to show ac
tivity in national guard work. On
September 30, 1920, the total
membership of the national guard
was 1426. On September 30,
1921, this had grown in the one
year to 2052.
On this latter date California
had 2545 in its national guard
and Washington 2639.

Freight reductions that do not
reduce in any Important way as
far as the northwest is concerned
is the accusation hurled at the
railroads in a letter sent out Sat
urday by Fred A. Williams, chair
man of the public service com
mission. Williams refers to the
announcement of the carriers as
"legerdemain publicity."
Williams points out that com
modities in which northwest ship
pers are mainly interested are
scarcely affected by the proposed
reductions, and particular men
tion is made of livestock. He de
mands that the roads make a gen
eral horizontal reduction just as
they made a horizontal increase

a means of combatting war con
ditions. Tactics Questioned

resorting to tactics of 'much ado

tentions as to uniform reductions
after tho 'manner in' which the
advances were heretofore made,
and that no real effort Is being
made to see that such reductions
as granted are consistently and
equitably distributed, but instead
are subject to manipulation at the
expense of those that can least
afford to suffer."
Discrimination against Oregon
and in favor of California also is
seen by Mr. Williams In i the re
