Realty association has started a
movement for a community bouse
for the Salem tourist camp
grounds. The proposal was placed
before a meeting of the Salem Fed

action recommended by the real

two resolutions, with c?rtain rec
ommendations. These resolutions
are as follows:

traction Writes Mayor
Attractive objects noted by tour
ists and others as they pass
through communities are not for
gotten and often prove to the one
thing by which a city is remem
bered. Proof of this is evinced in a let
ter recently received by Mayor
John B. Giesy from Mrs. J. A. Fe
senbeck, wife of an attorney at
Cloquet, Minn., which requests in
formation regarding the Waite me
morial fountain on the state house
grounds. Mrs. Fesenbeck is now
chairman of her citty's park board
and is anxious to have fountain
similar to the one in Salem In

has replied to her request, giving
all information available upon the
situation. The letter from Mrs.
Fesenbeck is as follows t
"While visiting In your city a
year ago I was much interested
in the fountains located on the
grounds of the Capitol. Within
the past year and a half I have
crossed our United States, inspect
ing ornamental fountains in every
city where I stopped, and of them
all, the two "umbrella" fountains
in Salem were the most unique.
As a member of our local park
board, I had charge of the con
struction of an ornamental foun
tain in one of our parks. I tried
through two different channels to
get some information about the
construction of the fountain head,
which causes. the water to flow
out in the shape of an umbrella,
but received no reply to my let
ters. Now I know of no other
way but to appeal to you realizing
that this is only one of many
strange requests that come to a
mayor's office. However, I trust
I may get the information for
which I am seeking.
Will you kindly let me know
whether these fountain heads were
purchased ready made from some
firm, and if bo, where can I buy
one? Or, if they were made by
some plumber, can I obtain the
working plans? Also, if the latter
is the case, would any patent
rights bee infringed if I had one
We have a temporary head on
our fountain but it is unsatisfac
tory to me, and I have never been
able to relinquish the idea that
some day we may have an "um
brella" fountain like those in the
capitol grounds in Salem. I assure
you I shall appreciate greatly any
information you may send."
BETTER HOME PLAN
Movement National in Scope
and Strictly Educational,
That the "Better Homes" move
ment, which was launched by the
Delineator in 1921, is educational
in nature and not for advertising
purposes, is the explanation made
by Mrs. Winnie Pettyjohn, who has
charge of the movement in Salem
in connection with the national ob
servation. Those fostering the
movement had in view the purpose
of bringing constructive thought to
the problems of home-making, to
show the way to more comfortable,
better-equipped houses, and to set
up higher standards of living.
Since its inception, the movement
has been incorporated as a nation
al public service, under the presi
dency of Herbert Hoover, and has
established its own headquarters
in Washington, D. C. Last year
more than 1000 cities throughout
the United States participated.
Official hostesses will be on
duty at all hours, acting in the
capacity of residents, and will be
on hand to greet the arrivals'and
to explain anything that they may
wish to know. Two houses have
already been obtained for the dis
plays here. These will be furn
ished with everything needed to
L-mplete the equipment of a mod
ern home. Efforts are being made
to obtain a third dwelling.
Everything in the homes will be
furnished by local merchants, and
the place will be ready for occup
ancy just as if someone were liv
ing in the home. While none of
the furnishings will be labeled
with cards of the donors, informa
tion regarding any article, question
of decoration and similar problems
that might arise will be explained.
The home will not be different
from any other home, with the ex
ception that no one lives in It.

advertise in Eastern papers. We can use for this purpose only properties listed di
rect with us. If you want to say a word about your property to the people of the
Great Middle West, LIST IT WITH US NOW.

dence and your patronage.
