Outside visitors say that the
Bearcats played one of their' best
games of the year, against an ac
tive, fast-working and. resourceful
team. Their passing was even
better than usual, though their
short-shooting was . not a , great
deal better than standard. Vat
ton .made one sensational long
shot.' but they watched him pret
ty carefully and be didnt hate
many chances. Login was in
gbod form, and good hick as well.
Ho ftnade six field goals, which
was 1 also the number credited to
Doney. In the latter part of the
game an almost full -new string

Idaho Jurist in Salem
to Visit Son at College
Judge James F. Allshie. of
Coeur d' Alene, Idaho, was in Sa
lem, Friday night, to visit his son.
who is a mid-year freshman in
Willamette university. The judge
served for 12 years on the Idaho
supreme court, and when he was
made chief justice. In 1910. he
was the youngest man in the his
tory of the United States to oc
cupy such a positon in any state
court. He is a graduate of Wil
lamette class of 189
B. L. Steeves of Salem.
For a number of years he wrs
on the Willamette board of trus

attend the pioneer university of
the west. James junior was the
laFt one until now. He left here
to ko into the avation service
The judge, who. came from
Tennessee as a lad of 18, found
his first job in the mrthwest,
unloading steel rails at Portland
at 10 cents an hour if he worked
hard enoungh; if he didn't, he
got fired. Since that time, how
ever, he has developed into one
of the most successful lawyers in
Idaho and the 10-eents-an-hour
fees don't go any longer. But
they were a grim reality when he
first came west.

in response to the importunity of
the Salem Woman's Club. My
books, however, together with my
comfortable chairs, tables, heat,
light, service, and all of the other
necessities of literary life in the

by the dimes and dollars ot Sa

the gift of the people for the en

he and his in turn profit by the

BUILDING LARGER FACTORIES
Some Important Salem Industries That Have Built During
1921, or Will Increase Capacity This Year.
THKRK have not been a large
number of new enterprises
eslabiished in Salem durin?
the past year. It has been a year
of 'marking tim-3" in most lines
of ir.dui-try; taking ti-e country
as a whole, it may be said to have
been a dead year.
A number of plants in Salem,
however, have enlarged their fa
cilities for handling business. The
King's Products company added
quite largely to its capacity. The
Producers' Packing company add
ed very greatly to its fruit-handling
equipment; it can now car?
tor fully twice as much stuff as
it had capacity for at the begin
ning of the year.
The Oregon Packing company
fruit plant on Twelfth street was
increased, especially by th3 in
stallation of the finest pear ma
chinery in the northwest. The
handling of the great crop of
pears is so nearly automatic that
even without adding building
room, the capacity of the plant
was largely increased.
The paper mill has built large
ly, and has found business so
good that the further installation
of machinery to run the plant to
its extreme ultimate capacity Is
in prospect. The company has
found a claraorons market for alj
its products, wherever they can
be offered for sale and supplied
n quantities large enough to sh'p.
The western white firs, hemlocks
and other pulp wood3 make a pa
per superior to anything else of
the character In the marfc?t; the
market only waits for enough or
this excellent Oregon product to
give it a practical monopoly of
One Of the fine new machine
Installations Is th? refrigerator
and cold storage plant erected by
P. M. Gregory, in connection with
the Buttercup Irn cream business.
The old Phex refrigerator service
had bn used in the ice cream
business, but the growth of the
Phex business and tb rapilly in
creasing demand for the Kuttcr
cup ice cream service, made ad
ditional refrigeration neresga-y.
The plant was installed this win
ter, and has been in full opera
tion only a few days. It is the
very latest thing in ammonia re
frigeration, with every improve
knowledge. Upon my shelves
stand food for everyman's thought,
amusement for everyman's leisure,
practical suggestions for every
man's inqurly. and texts for every
man's study, be he five or seventy
five, though his taste vary from
picture books to the Encyclopedia
Britannica. The best brains and
most skillful pens of all time have
contributed of their knowledge
that I may place it at his disposal.
I am the continuation school for
all. For Salem boys and girls, ed
ucation must not end with school
days. School day are over before
High School Is done for perhaps
50 per cent, and not ten out of a
hundred are favored with the
preparation college can give. The
schools have cione well it they
have taught their pupils how to
learn and the need to learn. Thosa
THE SALEM PUBLIC LIBRARY
ment that experience can suggest.
The ice cream storage capacity
has been enlarged by 500 gallons
in the rebuilding, and the plant
can now make 1000 gallons daily,
and have it in storage so that
even a machine break-down
would handle this immense trade
without a halt. The Buttercup
company maintains a fleet of four
trucks and cars, having grown
from almost nothing to this com
manding business eminence. It is
one of the most outstanding of all
the new business of the city. In
its percentage of growth during
the year 1!21.
A new corporation, Ihe Capital
Ice and Cold Storage company,
has recently been incorporated, to
build a plant this summer on Fer
ry street, east of the old Salem
Fruit Union plant. It is to have
a building 80x127 feet, and plans
to do a general 'ce and cold stor
age business. C. A. McLaughlin
cf Independence H president.
I-ouis Iachmund. vice president
and treasurer, and W. A. Talbot
secretary. J. H. McN'ary Is one of
the incorporators. This big new
plant will not more than take
fare of th)j present demand for
fruit refrigeration; it does not go
far Into the ruture. which Is
bound to call for far more cold
storage handlinc; to carry fresh
fruits through the year.
The Oregon Wood Products
company .over in Wwt Fa!cm. is
one of the big newcomers in the
local industrial field. The plant
was established some yearn ago.
but it fell into finanrial difficul
ties and was. idle the fore part of
lata year. But during the sum
mer It was reorganized and refi
nanced and today it is one of the
most thriving little businesses cf
Salem. It has leen running
two shifts on broom bandies,
and other turned wood Jobs, and
employs about 30 men. The de
mand for its products has bfn al
most beyond belief, since it got
fairly into production along In
the fall. A great extension of
building and machine capacity 13
in prospect for thig season.
