Aerial truck No. 1 of the Salem
fire j department , was unloaded
Monday and brought to the sta

now being thoroughly gone over

The truck has many of the lat

vices. In addition to the 88 feet
of ladder there Is an attachment
which makes it . possible to con
vert the ladder into a water tower.
This is a device worked out by
Fire Chief llutton and is the first
one to be brought into the Pacific

Gahlsdort Threat to Quit
Is in Nature of Protest
The threat of William Gahls
dorf to resign from the presidency
of the Business Men's league will
be threshed out at their next
meeting, according to late an
nouncements. The problem of
uniform street . decoration, which
the' Veterans of Foreign Wars
have advanced, is said to be the
cause of Gahlsdorf's stating that
he would resign from the presi
dency of the league as a protest
against the treatment of the
league by the veterans.
The veterans offered to install
the flags complete at a cost bt
$4.85 and through the confer
ences tlat resulted between com
mittees from the two organiza
tions much misunderstanding re
sulted. The veterans went ahead
with their proposition and gave
the 7 Salem merchants a uniform
Blreet decoration. It is under
stood, however, that Gahladorf did
not approve of-the? plan, and dtd
not subscribe- to the plans., which
the majority of merchants had ac
cepted. "" '

feet that he considered Crews ca
pable of running the office with
out outside help.
West's statement, commenting
on the committee's dismissal fa as
follows: ' '
"Our committee was discharged
because it . was performing its
duties without fear or favor and
because its investigations were ex
tending into the activities of the
present corporation commissioner.
'"The governor was happy with
out words so long as we were un
covering the shortcomings of pre
vious administrations, but he could
hot stand the gaff, when the in
vestigations reached hisf own. "
"The points which have been is
sued by the 'present ' corporation
commissioner and his refusal to
aid those who have in the past
been defrauded, show his utter un
fitness for the responsible position
he now is filling.'
"The committee has withstood
the pressure that has been
brought to suppress their reports,
but the governor, through his
weakness, has given way, and it is
now open season for all those pro
moters who would make the small
investor his prey." -'
George Black, the other mem
ber of the com mitt ee. also speaks
laconically.' He says:
;'.The committee has been a very
harmonious: one. - It Is very unfor
tunate for the welfare of the in
vesting public that it has been dis
charged at this time. The f half
has not been told." ,
