Following the recommendation
of the Chamber of Commerce
Wednesday night, the city conncil
will consider the matter of a
change of the present auto park
ing, a back-ln-to-the-curb system,
to the drive-in plan as It seems Is
generally adopted In coast towns.
Also, the matter of safety zones,
to be definitely marked at the
street car stops on the busy
streets, and then allow auto traf
fic to pass by outside this zone of
safety, at a reduced and safe
speed instead of blocking the
traffic while street cars "are" un
loading, will bo given careful
Mayor John Giesy says, how
ever, that they have been study
ing this matter tor a long, long
titme in the city council; and the
more they study it the. more
things they see to counsel cau
tion. There are many stores-that
having no alley entrances, have
to do all their delivery-wagon; ser
vice from the front door, and they
have to v hack up to the curb; a
head-on parking makes car de
livery next to impossible, espe
cially if the street is crowded. Tbe
council has considered the prob
lem for years, and has not yet
seen that it is wise to chaiisw.
1 "It will be wise to ma'K'e haste
slowly," said Mayor Giesy. ''Safe
ty first,' and 'When you're dead
you're dead for a Jong. long
while,' and all that sort of thing.
Some of these others who have
adopted the, drive in parking sys
tem, have done so because it is
easy to start; maybe they would
change If they knew the other
"The matter will, be carefully
studied, and whatever looks best,
the city wants, whatever it Is'.

Silverton Foiir L Officer i
v Dies After Short Illness
SILVERTON. Ore.. Feb. 14.
(Special to The Statesman).
Charles' Benson, a well known Sil
verton mill man, died at his home
at Silverton Tuesday night at 10
o'clock,' after an Illness of a week.
Mr. Benson had been in ' pdor
health all winter, j but had im
proved so much that he resumed
his Work after the. holiday and
continued until about a week ago
when he was taken ill. -His Ill
ness was not ' considered serious
and his; death came suddenly
Tuesday evening. Mr. Benson
was 54 years of age.
Mr. Benson was a prominent 4-L
man and; until last week when he
resigned' because of ill health he
was president of the 4-L organi
Funeral arrangements have not
been made as his three brothers
and two sisters who live in east
ern states have been notified of
their brother's death and until re
plies are received " arrangements
will not be made. It is under
stood that the Knights of Pythias,
of which he was a member, will
have charge of the funeral.
Many Rotarians Expected
to Attend Grand Program
From present indications, the
Grand theater will have to be
triple-decked and reduced to
standing room only, If all the
members and guests who are now
expected should attend the Ro
tary club anniversary Friday
night, February 23.
Rotarians from McMlnnville,
Eugene, Portland, are coming en
masse; the local Kiwanis and
Lions clubs are invited, to the
last man; every Rotarian is to
have a limited supply of tickets,
and It looks as If they would have
to fight for a chance at the door,
as women at a Monday, bargain
sale of silk suifs for a nickle
apiece. It is really believed that
there will be demand for at least
four times the normal ' seating
capacity of the house. ' 3-.
Dr. Arthur Frederick Sheldon,
the speaker, was the internation
al orator at Edinburgh, Scotland,
In 1921, and took the whole Ro
tary world by storm. He Is. an
author, edjitor, orator, and his
lecture, "The Philosophy of Ser
vice," Is rated as one of the gems
of tbe modern lecture platform.
Admission to the program Is to
be only by ticket; not that they
wouldn't like to have everybody
attend, but thattheir seating ca
pacity is far below the limit of
desire, to hear the notable visi
tor. ; : , ' '
' i Community singing is. to be one
feature of the evening, with Dan
Langenberg, the Rotary chorister,
Mrs. Alice Dodd, of Willamette
University, spoke briefly, at the
Marion-Polk Realtors' luncheon
Thursday, to present tbe claims
of the Salem YWCA for their
'We urge you to visit this
hive of industry," said the speak
er. "Wae have a long list of ac
tivities; 'girls looking . for ! em
ployment, girls and women who
stop in to warm or rest while
in it'rom the country, or from the
suburbs of Salem; girls who have
come to the end of their finan
ces and need, a home while they
find new jobs; women with help
less little children. who must
work. We try to care for .every
one of these humane needs in a
helpful, inspiring way. . s
"There are many girls In Sa
lem, living outside the city.1 If
they go to the average "boarding
bouse they are deprived of the
privileges of. good company in
a real home; their guests must
gc to their bedroom or out on
the streets. The average young
man loses some of his natural,
fine protective instinct for the
girl who, has no home. We have
our parlors where a girl - may
receive' her friends, and where
1 decent young manhood and young
wc manhood may meet under
real borne Surroundings. If you
haven't a girl who might need
our help, remember that the pro
tected girl is a far better pro
tection to your boy."
The speaker asked for no or
ganized endorsement, only for
the Individual support and sym
pathy for the YWCA as a pub
A report, from the legislative
committee showed that there was
small chance for the. passage this
year of the: "Packed in Oregon"
label law that the Realtors have
been urging. Two local mem
ters of the legislature, one a
fruit gTOwer, had reported the
Improbability of any favorable
action. The legislative commit
tee, however, will watch . close
ly .the legislative actions of the
week, to catch any last-minute
measure that might be harmful
to the Realtors' business.
A determined effort is to be
made to increase the member
ship, both of active and of as
sociate members'. A definite pro
gram ot particularized boosting.
such as the Statesman has car
ried in Its Slogan page for the
past two years, was urged by H.
E. Brown, and highly recom
mended by other speakers. Some
such industrial program Is ex
pected to be adopted.
Next Thursday is "Slogan
day," "when every member Is ex
pected to bring In some definite,
helpful slogan that can be used
by the association.
