is a necessity on the planet Mars.
provided there is life there .and
also provided that life requires
moisture to live, in the opinion of
Dr. Charles E. St. John, astrono
mer and pnysicist or tne Mount
Wilson observatory; near here.
The water supply on Marq, as
revealed in a series of tests just
completed by Dr. St. John, is
about one-twentieth that found on
the tops of the semi-arid moun
tains of Southern California. -'
Besides being ' on perpetual
emergency rations of water, the
Martians, if there are any such
creatures, also are short of what
this planet calls air. The .oxygen
supply there is only 60 per cent of
that on the heights of. M6unt Ev
erest in- the Himalayas, and on
Mount Everest explorers must use
oxygen tanks to keep alive.
In the matter of heat Mars is
better off than was formerly sup.
posed. In fact, says Dr. St. John,
the Mars temperature, often de
scribed as .excessively cold, may
be nearly the same as that of this
earth, since Mars absorbs all but
about Iff per cent of the light and
heat reaching it from the sun
As a basis of comparison. It is
stated that this planet absorbs
only one-half the light and heat
received from the snn, and re
fleets, the remainder; v
Already the building permits
that have been issued for the con
struction of homes in Salem this,
year have almost reached the
total for last year and eight full
weeks yet remain until the end
o fthe year. Lastyyear permits
were issued representing an out
lay of $9914,080. This year, up
to Saturday night, permits for
homes have reached the total of
$927,550. The present indications
are that this year's record will be
greater than last year's, in spite
of the fact that winter is all but
here, permits for homes are con
tinuing to be issued at a very
satisfactory rate. Last December
permits were issued for homes
amounting to $42,200, and at the
rate permits are now being taken
out there is every reason to be
lieve that this December's total
will at least equal that of last De
cember's. It is a well known fact
that the amount represented by
the permits in only about two
thirds of the actual outlay made
on the homes. This means that
Salem so far this year has spent
about a million and a quarter dol
lars on homes.
According to the Chamber of
Commerce there are now 5090
homes in Salem. The figures
thus arrived at are based on the
federal census taken in 1920. On
January 1 of that year there were
3783 homes in Salem. From then
up to January 1 of this year 1003
homes were built. And so far
this year. 304 homes have been
built, making tfce total of 509O

Tired of Beeing a Steno,
She Enters Man's Field
LONDON. Kathleen Britter
has become London's first woman
conveyancer. And she does not
see why any capable woman could
not do her sort of work if she was
interested in it.
'The trouble with so many
girls is that they get into a groove
and stay there," she said. "I got
tired of being a stenographer,
studied real property and persuad
ed a firm that was advertising for
a male conveyancer that a woman
who handled that sort of work
for solicitors for years could fill
the place as well."
Miss Britter is 24 and has been
a business woman for about five
years. Her mother was house
keeper for the late Lord Lever

the ambitions of the young sten
