from the highway into the ditch.
Fortunately no member of the
party was injured, but the auto
mobile was damaged considerably
and the dog was fatally Injured.
In the party besides Mr. Sackett
were Miss Esther Temple, a teach'
er of Adna, and George and
Ralph Toung and Sylvia Lehman,
students. The party camei to Sa
lem on instructions of the school
superintendent to' look up matter
n the state library on a question
soon to be debated by the Adna
team. The three students in the
party were debaters.
J. C. Perry Tells Why Cham
ber of Commerce Needs
Local Support
President J. C. Perry ot the Sa.
lem Chamber of Commerce has
some definite ideas of what a club
should be, and do. Here are a
few of them:
"The modern Chamber of Com
merce aims to work toward de
finite and concrete objectives,
carrying: out . in its -.activities a
well considered program of work.
The Chamber that does not ' do
this tails in reaching its greatest
possible usefulness to the com
munity, fails In real effectiveness
as a force for good because . it
does not get anywhere in its ef
forts. A program of work to be
effective should reflect the de
sires of the membership of the
organization, express the. out.
standing needs of the community
and be an inspiration to those
who have faith in their ' home
town and' hope for Its best de'
.. Questions Answered
"The question has been asked:
'What does the Salem Chamber of
Commerce want more members
and more money for what is it
going to do?' As president , of
the organization, I believe there
are many things we might do dur
ing the coming year, but the fol
lowing things appeal to me as the
things we should strive for and
make our program of work reach
"1. Clean' up our indebted
ness. The Chamber has some
debts that were incurred for mer
itorious objects, activities that
have brought returns to the com
munity in many ways. Notably
amorfg these was the installation
of the Tourist Auto Camp which
has enabled the city to care for
so many visitors in the year past
We want to start with a clean
slate as fat as our finances go
and throw off the load we have
been carrying, .
Industries Important
"2. Industrial development
Salem, has at the present time a
well developed industrial life. It
is one of the gTeat fruit packing
centers of the Pacific Northwest
This phase of our industrial de
velopment should be fostered. An
effort be made to induce new in
dustries to come here; such indus
tries as we have the raw material
for and can take care of. There
is no reason why our industrial
payroll cannot be increased.
"3. Agricultural development.
Salem Is' In the center of a won
derfully rich agricultural section
The development of whih means
much In the. commercial and in
dustrial progress of the town.
Special attention should be made
to the needs of the farmers and
fruit growers of Marion County.
The Agricultural Committee oi
the Chamber should work with
the canners and packers of fruit
and with' the growers of fruit in
an effort to stablize the fruit in
dustry and bring about such; con
ditions as will be for, their mu
tual profit and prosperity. Every
existing agency that is working
for the development of better
methods and better returns to th

Attorneys Appointed B y
Court in Marion-Linn Dis
trict in Unique Position
The Marion-Linn judicial dis
trict of the Oregon circuit court
is said to be the only district in
the state that makes no payment
to the lawyers appointed by the
court to defend a mfcn accused of
crime, who wants legal counrel
and protests his inability to vay
for the legal service himself.
Thi is said to have started
through an interpretation of the
laws by Judge Burnett, who said
that "every attorney is an offi
cer Of the court," and as such is
obligatedi to see to the proper
conduct of the court business.
The right of counsel being guar
anteed eyery man. he beld that
the court had a right to delegate
to any attorney within reach the
protecting of the legal rights of
every man accused.
Some of the young lawyers
used to be willing enough to take
cases even on these terms for the
practice and court standing that
a a. an could get by a good show
ing for his client. But alter a few
such, they learned that the fish
ing or the wood-cutting or any
thing was better on criminal
court arraignment day, for they
were liable to be picked out to
defend cases that couldn't pay
them even tho filing fees.
One Salem attorney tells of a
time when the judge said to a
stranded ' culprit who needed
counsel. :
"Now the court will give you
an attorney to look after your
case. Over there are Attorneys
Doe and Roe, and out in the hall
is Lawyer Boe take your pick!"
The accused studied the beard
less faces before him, and then
with a shiver turned to the judge
to say:
"Well, Judge, if it's all the
seine to you, I'd rather taSV a
chance on Boe; he can't be as bad
as these." The legal historian de
clined to te'.l their other names.

a new membership card, and then
filled it but for 7 1-2 new mem
bers for , the .coming year were
Christians or not, from the way

it stand,? was what C. P. Bishop
said at the Chamber of Commerce
dinner Monday.
The committee that had man
handled him had Rev. Ward Willis
Long, pastor of the First Presby
terian church, as one of its mem
bers, and the chowd ot 70 guest3
voted that it was a most righteous
act. Mr, Bishop was toastmaser

Morris Reports 70
Steward Rundberg had provid
ed for about 60 guests and there
were 70 i who flocked in. They
were properly and sumptuously
fed, but drifting in late as some
of them did made their individual
dinners a1 bit late. It was by far
the biggest meeting of the year.
Col. Hprnry E. Morris reported
that his trusty financial warriors
had already captured 79 new mem
berships for the Chamber. Of
these, 25; have taken more than
one membership.
Col. R; C. Snelling reported
that his force had been a bit late
In organizing, and had no numeri

himself was solely to blame for
the dqlay. but they expect to
make it up.

rooms and compare notes over the
dinner table. The Rotarian lunch

Mr. Harvey delved deeply fhto

there was no recognition in the
decalogue of the possession of
souls or inherent rights by wom

exclusively to men. '
The ambassador asserted that
thoory and practice, as well as
logic and reason "drive us to the

mandments should be revised to

renditions or a specific decalogue
should be constructed exclusively

Less Than 8 Per Cent of Total
Levy Delinquent Penalty
Date Approaches
Marion county taxpayers have
already paid in $1,556,094.60 on
the 1321 tax roll, out of the total
tax levy of $1,685,936.92.
This leaves but $129,842.32 de
inquent. or less than 8 per cent
of the total levy.
The first half of the tax, if un
paid until November 5, draws in
terest at the rate of 1 per cent
per. mouth, and the second halt
at the ame rate and up until the
same time. If the tax is not paid
on or before November 5, the in
terest charge stands, on the whole
assessment, and a penalty of 5
per cent is added also. Thus, a
tax amounting to $100. if paid in
two equal installments, on April
and October 5. could run until
November 5, when It would
amount to $104 if paid by that
date. It would be $109 on Novem
ber 6th, and would continue to
draw Interest at 1 per cent a
The tact that less than 8 per
cent, of the 1921 taxes is now de
linquent, and still has the chance
to Ue paid up before November 5
and avoid the penalty other than
the interest, is considered a re
markable showing for this year.
Some of this money Is due from
prune growers, who have sold
their crops but have not yet been
paid. They may hava their money
before the penalty date. Some
taxes go delinquent, every year,
but this year there is no more of
a shortage than there was a year
ago, accordiug to the sheriffs of

Ireland Xot Issue
Mr. Bonar Law confirms that
Ireland is an agreed question and
he further intimated clearly and
frankly at the Unionist meeting
today that tariff reform or pro
tection would notform an Im
portant part of his policy. And
since Mr. Lloyd Ceorra hie an.
nounced himself as a free trader
this question cannot come to the "
front as both the Liberal and La
bor parties are in favor of free
trade. The prime minister prom-
ises to define his policy in hi
coming speech, but Judging from .
his remarks today it will not be of
an eventful character. ' -
Previous to the breakdown of .
his health which forced him tem
porarily to retire from politics,
Mr. Bonar Law was a very close
friend of Mr. Lloyd George and
was identified with the entire
coalition policy. It is therefore
practically impossible that he can
in any important measure reverse
this policy. Thus, unless - Mr.
Lloyd George should take a strong
turn in his policy, there will be
little difference between the poli
cies of the two men. '
