Salem today, so far as the general
pubnc is concerned. The general

from 9 to 10 for transients only.
No routed mar will be delivered
None ot the routes will be carried
though mail will be collected and
dispatched as- usual by a small
force of clerks who will take their
real vacation later.
There is no such word as
Thanksgiving day in the railroad
calendar; no vacations, no holiday
rates, no nothing. . Nobody Is
happy, nobody Is thankful, noth

the rate and wage drop, and the
railroad looks like one ot tbe or

has an official paper that ougnt
to be handled on November 24 is
clear out of luck unless he han
dles it himself. For the state
and the county won't touch it
with tongs, on Thanksgiving day.
Out at the penitentiary there
will be a real vacation. A picture
show will be given in the fore
noon, a whooping big chicken din
ner at noon, a cessation of all la
bor for the whole day, and all the
vacation that th9 season can
bring. It is gloomy weather, and
a prison is not the ideal place to
inspire the most thankful hearts.
but Warden Compton hopes -o
make It a better day for every
one than the general run of days.
Training School Celebrates
A half day vacation from both
work and study is to be given at
the boys' training school, and a
dinner that will linger long in the
memories of the boys. In the af
ternoon, they are to have music,
and, indoor games at the gym,
and the whole day is to be given
over to a real Thanksgiving spir
There Is no Thanksgiving dance
or entertainment of any kind at
the armory this year.
A Jolly-Up party at Waller hall
is the Willamette contribution to
the holiday spirit. An elaborate
program of impromptu eports,
music, games, sociability, is to be
offered, and the student who is
unfortunate enough to be strand
ed at college instead of goinii
home for the big dinner, may be
the luckiest of 'em all. With the
train service bo precarious since
the flood, it Is likely to be almost
a fad to stay over in Salem for
this one event.
Football In Afternoon
The one big public celebration
is the football game this after
noon, at 1 o'clock, between the
Salem high and Lincoln high of
Portland. The 'Lincoln team,
coached by Chief "Wap," for
years the great end of Wilalmette
university, has not touched the
Portland championship, but has
demonstrated real class, and has
some of the players rated as mem
bers of the hypothetical all-Portland
team. The local team has
been going like a whirlwind of
late, and puts up a classy game
that would win the heart of any
critic. It should be an even
enough game to give a thrill every
minute. The hour was set early,
so the two-meals-a-day Thanks
giving could be enjoyed at the us
ual schedule hour of mid-afternoon.
Chcmawa Has Holiday
Chemawa will have tbe royalist
dinner of the whole year, with the
employes, men and women, from
the superintendent down to the
last on the list, as servitors to
fetch in tbe food and; to wait on
the students... In , the afternoon,
there will be some class and other
rivalries, including two football
games, and the whole day will be
one, grand round of good things
that will wipe out any homesick

Wet Wood Pulp Rate is
Reduced, Barnes Reports
A reduction in freight rates has
been secured for wet wood pulp,
according to E. T. Barnes, gen
eral manager of the Oregon Pulp
& Paper company.
This reduction will enable the
mill to ship to a number of dis
tant points and meet competition
and secure considerable new bus
iness. The Important feature of this
freight reduction is the fact that
with the additional business,, to be
secured it will enable the 'mill
management to run. the sulphite
mill to its fullest capacity. The
new rate will become effective the
first of the year, MriBarnes said.

"The Marion county teachers'
institute which has just closed
was the most satisfactory in
years," declared Mrs. M. L. Ful

tendent. "The spirit was .won
derfully fine. Everyone was
prompt in all sessions and there
was the closest of attention to
all speakers. No one refused to
work when called upon."
W. M. Smith, assistant state
superintendent of public schools,
spoke Wednesday morning on
'The County Unit Plan." This
plan is one by which all districts
in a county have their affairs
administered by a board of five.
This board elects the county su
perintendent and buys supplies

While Mr. Smith, did not recom
mend tbe adoption of the law,
yet the impression was that he
looked upon the law with favor.
John H. Rudd, executive secre
tary Marion county Y. M. C. A.,
spoke on "Physical Education."
He said that the old idea of the
country boy being more healthy
than the city boy had been ex
ploded. He recommended plenty
of play for school children as a
means of keeping up their spirit.
I ''Jf, aJ??llow ptreak develops in
the play of a boy, watch oat for
htm later in his business deal'
ings,Vdeclarsd Mr, Rudd."- He al
so recommended. the countv nurse
a3 being of great help to dis
tricts. J. C. Nelson, principal ot the
Salem hizh school, declared that
more attention should be given to
thf ttarhinp of history, and to
the development of world affairs.
"We need a broader conception
of patriotism." declared Mr. Nel
son, "on? that will enable us to
regard all nations sympatheti
cally. We do not yet sufficiently
realize that the problem before
the Washington conference is not
merely the reduction of armament
but the removal of the causes
that lead to war."
To disarm without removing
these causes, Mr. Nelson said,
would not prevent war. Too much
patriotism is sentiment and is
not based on sufficient knowl
edge of facts, he said.
J. S. Landers, president of the
Monmouth normal school, said
that the work of teachers is just
now being appreciated. The pres
ent unrest, he said, is caused
mostly by selfishness.
Dr. Carl Gregg Doney, presi
dent of Willamette university, de
clared that the high schools of
years ago produced more inde
pendent thinkers than the mod
ern high schools. Ha alsa rather
condemned the present elective
system which now prevails in high
schools, claiming that results have
not been satisfactory.
"It is not the officer of the law
that protects our children, but
rather the preacher in the pulpit,''
he declared. "I tremble at what
the next few years will bring if
our young people are not led
aright," declared Dr. Doney.
The. fifth annual teachers' in
stitute which closed with the af
ternoon session ,is. regarded by
those especially Interested as the
best institute held in years. Not
