that the council raise the amount

The matter was the chief mat-1
ter of interest at the 'dinner, and
arrangements hare been made to
bring the discussion tip before the
Rotarians, the Llotos,' the Realtors,
the Elks, and the women's clubs.
AH of these civic 'organizations

they were created.

Kiwanians ' Tuesday when " Fred
ErJxon, who has" been Interested
In the playgrounds of Salem ever
since' their creation, introduced a
motion to-instruct the president of
the club' to 'appoint a committee
or the purpose of drawing up a
resolution protestlBg the elimina
tion' of ' the playground f and in
the coming budget, and asking the
. council to see that funds tor this
work are provided. The motion!
was enthusiastically and unani
mously carried, and it was further
moved : that . lfae ; committee be
given power -to act so that the
resolution . can reach the council
before it Is too late to remonstrate.
. It is understood that such remon
strances must be made on or be
fore December 8, and the commit
tee -will probably; appear before
the meeting of the council to be
held on that evening. i I
'.'I learned throuth the press
that the playground fund has been
eliminated by the budget commit
tee "Mr. Erixon declared. This
club took the initiative in creating
the playgrounds, and during the
first year; we paid1, three-fifths of
the expenses, and assisted for-the
Rett two years. Then the council
provided 1 8 00 a paltry i860 for
them. Now the budget committee

ground board. .
'-He ''went - on- to declare that
cjties of Salem's size have three or
- four ' times: as much allowed for
the-playgrounds. He continued:
"The budget committee had the
i temerity to say that there is too
much dust on the 'playgrounds,
but there is not more there than
ttny place else." He "brought out
' t h. fact that sinee the playgrounds
were created' there has not been a
drowning in the city limits, while

There are about 300 of them,
some of which the defense' has
said are quite as erotic as Alice's.
One ' letter contained protesta

flat statement, "I love you."
Later in the letter he said: "Re

stand again for cross examination
With approximately $200,000
available for market road work in
1926, the county court will soon
lay plans for further improve
ments for the coming year. Al
though no definite schedule has
yei jteen drawn p, it is under
stood that little paving with as
phalt will be done. Instead, prac
tically all work will te done with
gravel and macadam. This plan
will he adopted in' view of the fact
that hard surfacing costs mount
to high figures and necessitate a
curtailed program of improvement
for any one year. It has been
found, however, that good gravel
and macadam roads can be land
much more cheaply and at the
same time will provide practically
as good a transportation system.
Oiling, as an experiment in this
section, will also be tried here.
It is said to have met with un4
qualified success in other coun
Two warrants of $32,000 each
are to be paid the county by the
state as its share of the state
fund, the county to match the war
rants with a like sum. This will
provide approximately $128,000
with which to work. In addition
to this the market road coffers
will be swelled to the extent of
about $75,000 by the share of the
gasoline tax. r
While very little pavingfis con
templated, it is expected "that a
few short stretches of hard sur
facing will be necessary. A two
mile gap near Scotts Mills and
three miles near Mehama will
probably be paved next year. In
cluded in the five-year program
are several sections not benefited
by the market road fund under
the first program. Many petitions
have been received by the county
court asking that work be done.
