r SEEMS to be a favorite theory
of men that women enjoy spring
cleaning as much as men dread it.
The husband In fall flight before
tie determined housewife, armed
t - wltb mop, broorn and pall. Is a
standard comic figure.
a a matter, of fact that same
' housewife, who bears the real bur
;fiea of the undertaking, dreads It
'far more than any mere man. who
suffers at most a day or two of ln-
convenience and the temporary
loss of his pipe or hte slippers.
What" the rood housewife likes Is
.the tense of cleanliness and order
'which follows upon the annual
event. The cleaning Uself is an
ordeal which, calls for all of her
; courage and puts a heavy tax upon
'her physical strength. -
It need not be so- bad. however.
If system and forethought are. in
voked beforehand. It Is well to
" begin with the kitchen. ; If the
utensils In every day use .are of
enameled ware, the' task of clean
lag them all la a light one. Soap
and plenty of hot water will do
tie Job without any undue expendi
ture of "elbow grease."
Of course kitchen pantries and
kitchen shelves must be thoroughly
cleaned out i and useless articles
eliminated. There " is no use in
ties 3 days of keeping odds and
enis to collect dirt on the theory
tia they, will come in usefully
soae day. With a clean kitchen to
faXback on. the. housewife has es
Ulllsbei strategic headquarters
a&d.'can go about the rest of the
house more at her convenience.
The great help 4ai such- work is
txrizz - the proper, implements.
Two, pails should jal ways be used
in cleaning., one for scrub , water
and - one for rinsing. - It : these
pails are enameled ware, they are
- a comfort. Not only is the enamel
ed ware ilght. but the palls them
' selves are- so easily cleaned after
a day's work with them. In pre
war days housewives ' were urged
to use large sponges for cleaning
Instead of cloths.. That was good
advice and Is so still, if such
- "sponges can be procured at mod
erate prices. If not. soft cloths,
plenty of, them, can be used. The
real secret of good cleaning is
t-lenty of rinsing after the scrub
' tins. "As to mops, each woman
dust - Judge tor herself. - Some
women like to use a mop and oth
ers say they nevet can get good
results except on their bands and
To Ban Billboards
NEW YORK, April 27. The
multitudes of glaring signboards
which, dot the nation's highways
Iroza coast to coast are doomed
and will be largely done away
. with, if the campaign of the Na
tional Committee for Restriction

fully carried out.' Its program to
pteserve the scenic beauty of the
.country's roadways and. to elimin
ate the unsightly billboards which
line every vacant space in the cit
ies, already has been indorsed by
IS national advertisers, according
to Mrs. W. L. Lawton, commit
tee chairman. .
Efforts to do away with the
., signs are now being projected by
the committee in nine states and
j eventually" it is planned to extend
the movement throughout the na-
tion. . -

present co-operating with 41 civic.

Instead of- a Nuisance,
knees armed with their faithful
scrub brushes. ;
In washing windows : a small
enameled. ware hand basin to hold,
hot soap suds will be found very
useful. To get the gloss as bright
as. possible, the soapsuds should be
used hot. It is therefore better to
mix them la a small receptacle like
a hand basin or a good-sized
enameled ware bowl, than to "put
them Into an ordinary sized pan.
Or a strong solution of one of the
numerous soap powders ' may he
made ia an enameled ware, pitcher
and the preparation may be added'
to very hot water from time-to
time as required. , These-enameled'
ware pitchers are the only kind
that can be guaranteed to with-'
stand the rough and , tumble of
house-cleaning and come out with,
noses and handles intact. -
Few people in these days hare
carpets to take - up, and a rug
covered floor gets . so much Inci
dental cleaning from day to day
that there is not much accumula
tion of dust for the semi-annual
event. However a thorough scrub
bing never hurt anything and a
room which has had people in it
all through the shut-up winter
months will be all-the better for
a good freshening. It there have
been many colds In the family or
children have been afflicted with
some of the contagious maladies
peculiar to their age. it may be
well to use mild disinfectants in
the cleaning water. There again
we appreciate the enameled ware
pails as they can not rust and are
not affected by the chemicals nsed
in such disinfectants. ' .
Washing out curtains, both sash
and long, always seems a formid
able undertaking and . so. ft is. if
all such curtains are done at once.
If. however, the sash curtains, for
example, of each room are washed
out -when that room is cleaned, it
makes . the process easier. Fill
a large sized enameled ware dish
pan with very hot water; dissolve
ay favorite eeap preparation in it
add the 'curtains'-and soak over
night. Next day they, will wash
out without trouble and can be
pressed - while . still damp. Long
curtains ! can be ' washed in the
same way. a pair at a time, and
the wise housewife will , have a
frame on which to stretch them.
Make a spring cleaning also a
spring clearing. It is a fine time
to realize bow many things you
bave that you never use and to re
lease yourself from their tyranny.
Early Events in Salem Re
called by bpeaker Who
Has Seen History :
Tears and" laughter intermingl
ed at the Chamber Of Commerce
luncheon Monday as Charles B.
Moores ' of Portland recalled the
early days in Salem and brought
to mind almost forgotten personal
incidents about snen who have long
been placed to rest. Though a
resident of Portland at present,
Mr. Moores is a pioneer himself
and at one time was speaker of
the house of representatives.
"The everyday lives of the pio
neers run along the border line of
history, thoueh not of real his
torical t significance." Mr. Moores
said. lt is difficult to look back
over 70 years and tell of the events
in 20 minutes. However, tne
parentage of a community is as
Important as the parentage ot an
Individual, 'and Saleu was weu
born." - : l.-
Mr. Moores has been identified
with Salem since the very early
days, and was graduated from
Willamette university 54 years
aeo " "Among his4 earliest recol
lections were the destroying of the
first state bouse by an Incendiary
fire in 1855; the big Tlood oi
1861, when the water was four
feet deeo around the present site
of thn courthouse: the - famous
baseball game of 1867, when a
Portland team won from Salem
br a score of 92 to 25, and the
steps of the old .court house, at
the same-location of the present
building, were used as bleacners
by the baseball fans. Mr. Moores
was present for every noteworthy
event In the history of Salem and
attended cornerstone laying cere
monies which included those for
the capltol. Waller hall. Eaton
hall, the postotfice. Odd Fellows
hall, and on to the unveiling of
the statue. "The Circuit Rider,"
