How about the city dump; the disposition of tlve large
and increasing garbage of the city of Salem?,
' "Well, provision is being made for the disposition of this
garbage so as to make it less of. a nuisance than it has been
in the past few years; than it has been ever since Salem began
to take on the semblance of a metropolitan life, and in a smaller
degree even' back into large town ar$ village experience. ; .'
The Salem city garbage is to bex treated; sprayed with a
preparation that will deodorize it make it innocuous, and at
the same time kill the flies and r,ats that would otherwise
infest it. : :. ". : r-.'-v ;'.V V,.;;-. : . .:;
The old dump, that was reported a few, years ago as smell
ing, to heaven, and that has been smelling in much the same
fashion up .-to recent days, is a things of the past. It has been
covered over entirely with earth. , : :.; ;
The new dump, by the side of the old one, has a man in the
city's employ constantly in attendance, whose duty it is to separ
ate the tin cans from the other garbage materials; to pile the
cans where they will fill up a low place, and to spray the rest
of the garbage with the material that wiUjlestroy the offensive
smell and kill the flies and rats
' Five barrels of the spraying material having been ordered,
and also the necessary mechanical outfit With which to do the
spraying. . ;.' ' y': '-"-'r : ':' A': -
t This matter of the disposition of the city 's garbage has been
a vexing problem in most cities, no less than in Salem.
Some ot the Salem city of ficials recently went to Portland
to investigate the matter. They found that .the Portland city
officials had been on -the; point of building a new incinerator
of a more modern type, or an addition to the old incinerator
' But before taking final action Ihey went to Seattle to in
vestigate the methods of that city in disposing of its garbage
They found that Seattle used to have an incinerator, employing
a large force of men in burning the garbage, as is done in Port
land; but this new method of treating the garbage with the
spraying material came to light, from a number of cities in the
eastern part of the United States ' - ; - r
And the Seattle ity officials tried: it out and adopted-it;
and they went so far as to abandon the use of their incinerator.
They are now disposing of all their city garbage by dumping it
into gulches and fills, and treating it to render it innocuous
And, they are thus making new land; now lots for business
buildings and homes. , They showed the Poltlandcomniittee
rows of business buildings standing on land built up from the
city's garbage. . ;'v.- ; ; j' .
So the Portland city officials have decided against buildirig
a new incinerator or putting an addition on the old one. They
are giving the Seattle method a thorough testjTwith a view to
the probable saving of large sums now. spent in burning the
garbage. They may abandon their incinerator.

As to the location of the Salem city dump. It must be
located some where. For many years, ; the scavengers and
draymen used odd places around the outskirts, and along the
creek and river banks, until property holders raised protests and
threatened legal restraining -orders, to say nothing of physical
violence in some cases. - . , ; ? ?
No one wants a garbage dump near his home. It is like
the housing of Africans and Orientals. ; This raises burning
questions in nearly every city, of any size in the United States.
"YVe have these questions in Salem. 'They are difficult of satis
factory solution -in, fact, impossible." So : with" the city 's garbage-!
. V V .: , , ..: ; i.. ;: u
But perhaps the spraying" solution will bring; in new loca
tions the owners of which will be glad to have them built up.
It i works out well in Seattle, andwill work well in Portland ; but
there are more hills and gulches in those two cities than in
Salem, where the great proportion of our waste places are more
or less level.' , -L- , - I -
The Union-depot in Portland,! and all the great system of
terminal trackage, are on the site of what used to be Guild's
lake, thirty to fifty years ago. The lake was filled up with city
garbage. In those days, no one seemed to object to the smell;

A few years ago, Salem was about to vote on a proposed
Iwnd issue to build an incinerator to burn the city garbage. As
the matter stands' now, it is likely that this matter will be de
ferred, or perhaps abandoned. 1 ; -
. In the mean time, is there any one who wants to investigate
the matter, with a view to providing. a new s,ite for the garbage
dump in Salem, in order to make gdod city lots out .of low or
swampy places! i ,
The. present garbage dump is just south of the state fair
grounds; about on a line with North Seventeenth street.
The -congress of :. the : United
; States Is suffering severely frorn
the lack of leadership. . In discus
sing this the Albany Herald , in
part, makes 'these sensible
marks; r ...: -: V"
- , "Lack of leadership in congress
.arises out of the want of 'cohesion
between its members. Under the
present system each member of
congress Is a party unto himself.
He is just as much of a republican
cr a democrat as he thinks the
home folks wish .him to be. He
gauges hiaj opinions to . coincide
with the beliefs of the men and
.women who ''pot him in congress
and not to serve the needs and
interests of theVnaton as A whole.

legislative action. It is not be
cause present day members are
mediocre , as compared with their
predecessors that lack of leader
ship and united action' exists. But
It Is. because there is no central
agency that is responsible for? leg
islation. Etch member Is a law
unto himself, so there are as many
different views on public questions
as4here are members. And each
congressman- and senator wants
his own way.
"In government" there must be
organization, else the government
will perish. Administration of
government Is a science. Politics
is the greatest calling to which
man can devote his powers,; be
cause it is the science that 'de
termines the degree of happiness
and prosperity of the whole peo
ple. c We Americans have thought
it smart an4 popular to hawk at
politics and to ridicule and chas
tise the men Who have accepted It
for their calling; We have thus
degraded politics and brought; the
legislative department of the rov-
iVminent . to the point where Its

of this nation realize the Import
ance of the science of government;
that they come to know that or

that efficient government is impos

bodies," in their hodge-podge way,

the angle of what the folks back
home think of them."
" The Oregon Statesman has long
been a staunch advocate of the
phonograph. It takes the best
music into the home. ?'. Further
more we have lamented the,, de
cadence of the old singing school.
In those days there was real con
gregational singing. That is not
true, now. There are whole neigh
horhoods that are practically tune
less. There" Is a movement to
change this. The movement Is
called "Better Music" week, and
is from May 4 to May 1 0. A na
tional committee is in charge of
this and is anxious to have as
widely a distribution as possible
The committee in charge is dis
tributing a guide for the organi
zation of local music week which
contains special suggestions for
the participation of rural schools
and rural communities. It may be
obtained without charge from' C.
M, Tremaine, secretary, national
music , week committee, 105 West
Fortieth street. New York city.
Community song books with music
or word leaflets may, be had Also
from the committee. .
They are suggesting a music
hour ,1a,, every home, community
sings in schooibouse, church, or a
farm home, which may be the cen-
tPr of communal life' and in which
a piano, organ, or other musical
instrument is available, In some
eases families that have a radio
receiving set may invite their
neighbors to join in listening' to
the special music week programs
which "will be provided over the
radio. a . ";- r- ' - ' '
Since musicweek 'comes so near
the end of the school term in many
rural communities the preparation
of special programs may proceed
In connection with the preparation
for the regular closing exercises
and provide a natural climax for
the year's musical work.1 ;
Every - county in Washington
state has sent an instructed dele
gation for the- "re-nomination of
President Coolidge. This is mighty
fine. The county primaries have
done another good thing. They
have eliminated a federal office
holder who insisted on running as
a' delegate. . His friends ' tried : to
dissuade: him, but he swelled up
high, higher, than the party, and
insisted on running, : anyway.
Washington took, his measure and
said he' would have to stay in his
berth at Washington, D." C. " No
man who holds a federal office
has any business trying to inter
fere in these pure honorary po
sitions.: It is hoggish and does
not make for good feeling in the
party. Oregon has two such can
didates. ; Neither should be chos
en. ' They . have been honored
enough and are being paid for
their honor.
The Oregon! Statesman is in
sympathy with . the efforts made
to stamp fraternities and sorori
ties out of the high schools of the
state. We believe in them for

Every once In a while someone
bobs up and says thai the" north

do the egg business. During the
first ten months of last year we
Imported 24,600,000 dozen , eggs,
value $6,500,000. While we are
bringing eggs in that way there
need be very little danger glutting
the market here In Oregon. i
The fact is that the chicken bus
iness is hard tooverdo It might
be interesting to know where our
eggs went.? Cuba took 10,000,000
dozen; Canada took 5,500.000 doz

Britain 2,000,000 dozen, and the
balance scattered In various other
places. . .'
Otr good friend Claude Ingalls,
ItL his Corvallis Gazette-Times,
akes another1 wallop at the. prim
aries because the democrats In
I pouth Dakota called for republican
allots. We cannot see how this
a an objection in Oregon. When
re went to register the other day
e had to declare our party fealty,
id Were told that. we could only
vote the republican ticket at the
primaries. It looks as if this was
the only real protection to main
tain untarnished the integrity of
the political parties so far devised.
There are four candidates' for
United States senator ostenslvely,
really there are but two McNary
and Baker. Kubli and Smith are
on the side lines, but will never get
on the main' track. They really
will not change the situation much
Hmith will take about as many
votes from McNary as Kubli will
take from Baker. .'r
. Hence we conclude that the con
test will continue, to , be between
McNary and Baker. ;
Parched southern California

Rain to the d'epth of four inches

The rain , would ' have come any
way nd the people could have
saved their S8000.
The Bok peace plan seems to

teeth from it would throw open
the door for more serious gambl
ing than we now have. .., :
'MVe urge the enforcement of this
osdinance in regard to the games
mentioned for the following reas
ons: -, ' ' ' - . ' . ' : ; ' ' M
First, the practice of using trade
checks or '.'hickles" is in principle
violation of the ordinance and
is iff essence gambling. It is .true
that the amount at stake is small.
but the size of the stake does not
alter the principle? v"
Second, it should be enforced,
because such a practice becomes
a school for gambling. Scores and
hundreds of young men. may be
given opportunity to get the gam
bling fever) and once it gets into
their blood it would be a very easy
step to engage in more serious
gambling. ,
Third, such a practice affords a
very convenient- blind behind
which bigger; gambling may be
carried on. It enables them tq
hide behind this screen, and maker
it difficult for the law to be en
forced. ; . '
We contend, therefore, that en
forcement is the -only course that
should be followed, and wish to
assure our officials of our hearty
backing in their efforts to do so. '
I am aware of the fact that even
the suggestion of enforcement has
aroused a storm of protest and ob-
ectioh. : The character of such Op
position! . j only such as every
movement for reform has had io
encounter, and should not be tak
en seriously. May I deal witli
sume ot ine common oojeciions:
, , .
First, it is claimed that this is
such a little matter, such a petty
thing that it Is not worth bother
ing about. Well, suppose some one
should , wake you at 3 O'clock in
the morniirg and tell you that there
is a little fire in your attic. You
go up to see it, and finding it to
be but a tiny blaze in some rub
bish in the corner, are you going
to say, '"Oh. well, it is such a lit
tle blaze, there is no use bothering
about It. You shouldn't annoy me
by waking me up until it gets to
be a big enough blaze to. be1 worth.
giving attention, to." Of course
you wouudn't. If u fs a fire, then
the time to handle it is before it
gets a start. The gambling spirit
Is- a fire that must be stamped
out, that no 'respecting commun
ity can afford to tolerate it, and
the time to put it out is before it
gets a good start. r
" .Second, there . are some good
people who ought to know better.
who are trying to throw dust In-
the people's eyes and confuse the
issue by demanding, without. sen
sible discrimination,, that every
thing having the, element of chance
should be lumped together In the
same category.4- The attempt to
put the drawing of; the Kiwanls
attendance prlclon the same level
with a gambling card game is so
utterly ridiculous that no answer
is needed to a fair minded public.
Equally ridiculous would It be to
class all life insurance in the same
category; because the company" bets
the man, will not die. and the in
sured bets that he will. S
tempt to class the social .games in
the; homes that are
played for
prizes in the same category. Now,
peronallyI would not need many
buckets or barrels ; to catch my
teal's if thesei games for prizes
wete stopped, j If therejare any
mefJibrs of my congragation that
are guilty, I do not know It, so
they cannot accuse me of being
personal. But I would) like to
majce this suggestion, that should
thee be any such, and if they
wish to relieve the. church of em
bart-assment In Its fight for
cleaner- city, and" If theyf wish to
Trelibve the officials of embarrass
ment In enforcing the law it would
be a very gracious thing if they
would simply and quietly '"quit it.'
They don't have to play for prizes
But! the attempt to class these
games on the ; level of common
gambling only i serves to confuse
the J issue and turn attention away
from the main object of t this re
form.' From the. statements of
the inewspa pers one would get the
impression that , all these side
issueis were dragged Into jthls dis
cussiohi byf our resolutions. On
he contrary, they were dragged
in by others who should have
known better, and we protest that
they have no place in this discus
sion. If we get anywhere we must
stick to the main Issue.
Third, it is claimed that If you
attempt to shut: out this , gambling
m a. 3 - -:
irom ine pool rooms you win
scatter it out all over the city,
where it will be. beyond police
control. That was the same old
argument that, was used against
the abolition of the segregated dis
tricts of licensed vice. But we now
know that it was a great; step in
advance wben these districts were
abolished. d
Fourth, It Is protested that the
pool hall operators need t the in
come from these games ijto ,run
their place of business; that they
depend on the profit In trade from
these trade checks to support their
business. Well, why may they not
charge; a sufficient rental for the
use of the tables for the! games.
and cease placing any. trade value
on the checks? But if they still
contend ' that they .could not run
their business,, then ,I"say, (if they
cannot conduct their business with
out resorts to .methods and prac
tices that are detrimental to char
acter, and to the moral welfare of
the community, then the. commun
ity would be better off without
fhem. j : ---'l - . -- . l.
Let It be understood this Is by
no means personal against the
pool hall men of Salem, i do not
know them personally, and haven't
the slightest ill-feeling against one
of them. I would gladly do them
a good turn if I had opportunity.
But I must confess -I am
not in
love with their business.
welfare! workers over the country
are practically, unanimous ; in the
opinion! that the pool hall on the
average! is a detriment rather than
an asset to the community. It is
the successor, to ;the saloon, and
is too often an unwholesome in
fluence, a breeding place of vice.
Some communities have had to da
away with them altogether. The
ease of South Pasadena was called
to my attention this week. Con
ditions evidently (had become in
tolerable,, and the city council of
that city, under authority j of the
lity charter,, abolished "Hhem. alto
gether. The pool hall men pro
tested that it took away rights
guaranteed them under the consti
tution of the United States.! They
appealed to the ! state supreme
;our but were beaten. Then they
ippealed to the United States su
preme court.: That court sustain?
d the state court, and the coun
cil, and the judge, In handing down
.he" decision, stated that, while the
;ame was riot necessarily wrong
n; itself, yet it was a "notorious
fact that the billiard. hall gathered
together an idle, dissolute And
worthless class." ; "t , ' f
I repeat, we are not now con
ducting a campaign against these
halls in Salem, or their games.
Pimples Are Impurities Seek

Pimples, sores and boils' usually

It also stimulates the kidneys, thus

But if they cannot conduct their
business without violation of the
law, more, drastic action may be
necessary. , ,
Fifth, it Is contended that it is
small business for the churches to
single out such a "petty evil"
when there are worse things going
on every day. - One Portland pa
per. In., a prominent editorial In
"box" on the front page, held
the First Methodist church, Salem,
up to ridicule as just "rattling
around," using the; Methodist Big
Bertha to shoot sparrows and pee-
wees, ' while there is much bigger
game that should be gone after.
Such nonsense scarcely deserves
an answer. .It is perfectly evident
that that newspaper writer is not
nearly so anxious that the Metho
d.lst church get the bigger game as
hie Is that our shots do not land
too near home... . There are a great
many people who would like to
have the church use only Bis!
Berthas and fire at some objects
a long distance away, in most any
direction, just so they do not hit
in the particular spot where, they
happen' to be located.
Now, I resent the Implication
that the church is engaged in small
business. I am proud that the
Methodist church has used its Big
Bertha with great effect In the
past. In helping "to smash slavery,
and to smash the liquor traffic.
and' that she expects to use it to
help smash war, and industrial in-
ustice and political corruption.
and any other big evil that mena
ces the moral welfare of the world.
And our present world service pro
gram is one of the biggest con
structive enterprises now . beinjr
arried ' forward on the planet.
These are big issues and are re
ceiving the major attention of the
church every day. But I haven't
noticed any boxed editorials in
that paper on these subjects.
Furthermore, if I am not mis
taken there are other weapons
used in warfare besides Big Ber
thas. It is sometimes necessary to
use small artillery, and machine
gun. and rifle3, and even bayonets
in "mopping up" a trench and
driving out the foe. And I am
proud of the fact that the. Metho
dist church has not been content
merely to .shoot at objectives afar
off, but that she has had the cour
age to "mop up" the local com
munity, whenever wrongs need to
be righted, or when entrenched
evils work against the moral wel
fare of the. people. .
It is true that tU evil under dls-l
cu3s1on.imay'none Tso bad as some I
others, ? and ItTiapnens that this
I is the first sermon I have preach-
ea on mat sunset in my pastorate
here of nearK four years. But in
a sens theri is no such thing as
little and bif evils.- It is all part
of one big ffeht. to make a better
country and a better world. The
supreme concern Is the building of
better cithenship. and providing
opportunity jor every man to grow
up as a son pf God to the full stat
ure of mayiood. And whenever
any condition interferes with such
development, A good citizen will
be eager - join battle, whether
he must use weapons big or little,
and he wiijfstay in the fight until
it Is done. .-.
But thtugh the church is Inter
ested In ihe making of good laws
and the- enforcement,' we recog
nize tht that cannot be the final
solutioi. At best it can be only
curatiye, and the great work of
thefdurch must be preventive. Its
majlr task Is the religious edu
cation of the young, until thev will
insnctly prefer the good rather
than the bad. Its big concern will
bet to Implant in men's minds
idals that will supplant what Is
unworthy and base. And Its main
dependence will be upon the pow
er of Jesus Christ, whose gospel Is
the only influence In the world
that can change the human heart-
