grief on the occasion of the
last sad rites for your beloved

"Again Oregon joins its sis
ter states In extending sympa
thy. God bless you and may
you survive the sad bereave
ment that has befallen you and
the people of this nation." J
Salem citizens stood with bow
ed heads last night as the buglers
sounded taps and the final memor
ial service for Warren G. Harding,
late president of the United
States, was at an end. The silent
crowd scattered to its work and
play, the day's weflrk was finished
and the morrow would bring ', its
own cares. Services were held in
Willson park in conjunction with
the band concert. . '
Could the departed president,
so recently a guest of the north
west, speak . to Salem citizens he
would desire that they go on with
life's work and . play t and last
night's concert was altogether fit
ting and proper, was the state
ment , of Rev. Ward Willis 'Long
who spoke following the. concert.
.The favorite hymn or the late
president, "Lead Kindly Light-

tar and then the: great audience
Bang the hymn under her direc
tion. Rev. Mr. Long then spoke
Of the president, his work unfin
ished but the day's work done:
Mr. Long, quoted from the , late
writings of Victor Hugo and Rob
ert Browning witb their mes
sages of hope at the clqse of lives
spent in service to the world. Mr.
Long then asked the audience to
jain in saying the Lord's prayer.
the prayer which President Hard
ing asked those at the tomb of the
unknown soldier, regardless of
creed, to say together.
The brief service was closed
with the congregational singing of
the hymn "Abide With Me," and
Bounding of taps. :
Salem paused briefly yesterday
during the hour of Che funeral in
Marion. Stores were closed and
blinds- drawn, shops were, stilled
and the town was quiet. The kid
dies at the public playground
gathered for a short memorial
service of their own and Rev.
Ward Willis Long spoke to them.
- A memorial program was
broadcast last night from the Sa
lem' Electric , company's station
and a, brief prayer1 was 'offered
with a short talk given.
Two weeks ago today In : the
early hours of the morning,; the

Early Payments " Urged
Building Likely to Be
Ii Opened About Oct.' 1 .
i The first payments on all the
pledges secured In the recent cam
paign for the Salem hospital, .wera
due on August 1. .This of course
does not apply to payments that
were made in cash only to those
made on the two-year basis.. Thq'
hospital committee is very anxi
ous that this money, shall, come
in, at once, so that the hospital
can be finished. i -
Finishing is going on steadilyi
however, on the money - already
paid in. Tbia week, the two eleva
tors provided for in former con
tracts, were - ordered to be in-
stalled at" once. This includes the
big main elevator, on which, pa
tients can be carried up on
wheeled cots, direct from- the am
bulance or as transfers, from one
floor to another. The other is the
dumb waiter that serves the pa
tients their food from the kitchen
in the basement. The, grounds'
are bein cleared up. 'and the
whole place is being made ready
for - the. expected opening, . about
October 1.
There is Btlll about $900 un
provided for, from the-. original
estimates. There will be some
shrinkage, Id" all probability, on
pledges made perhaps -in- good
faith but not carried out. so. the
committee still hopes forhe com
ing of the big-hearted, man or
woman who will take up the last
of the financial slack in one grac
ious benefaction, and start, the
hospital into service free- of debt
and with a glad smile of thanks
for the past and of hope tor, ,tlie
future. . -
