That bill boards are to , follow
the fate pi extinttidn like the dodo
. and the jbaftalo jwa indicated last
night when the! lty zoniae com-
i mission t moved to reeommend lo
the- couacilt that the 'petition - of

' Another - important' .precedent
was Established when the commis
Veion went-on record as'' beins op-"posed-.toofferi)jrf
adrfce to the
v council that the council had not
- already solicited. - It kwas held
-that c.the .commission had no oc-
casflon to .interfere unduly with
tthe affairs of th -councillor -.;'
; This ue8tionl arose due to the
presence?, o. a Mr. -Berger. whd
f wished a bearing? before the eom4
jnission relative to erecting a serr-t
vice statfo'aion fthe soutfieast corM
Cer of Capitol and Center streetsi
. J lis petition was .turned down by)
? he- council f several -mantha ' ago j
tThen At-the last meeting, of.' the
-council, the petition was brought
up-agata. only t be turned down.!
t A Jth council, bad moti tt Icially
tasked the zoning commission to
i give an opinion the commission
t refused Berger a hearing.- 4 -i?
i? General sentiment ; seemed to
t be, however, that the less service
-stations erected, :tbe better for the
city from the standpoint bf beauty.
The commission' ' will recom-
td to the council that: the three,
,s..tUns J OF : me erecuu
41ngs brought before tne
XZiing last-night he gtanted. r j
.Kennedy la seeking to! construct
a, -concrete .buildiag at Aca&t-al
$20,000 for a dyeing and cleaning
establishment. He proposed to
have a boiler building in the rear.
The commission explained in
granting; his petition that the lo
cation is In a small business dis
trict, -v - ! :-,. L .,. .
The Brown and .Young build
ing is to be constructed if the
council adopts the recOmmenda
tiontion of the commission. The
building, to be i slocated, on the
northwest corner of High1 and Cen
ter streets, will be of: concrete, and
will cost about J3000.
Funding of the commission in
this case is significant of the fact
that Salem's business district is to
push northward. The commission
held that without question this lo
cation is to be a i-ecognzed busi
ness district. ; j L!.
On the same grounds the peti
tion of Forrest Mick to construct
a one story concrete store build

Petition to Be Presented fay
ers CornrnitteeJ S3 !
School Board Members Would
Place Issue on its Merits
Squarely Before Voters
'' ' ; for Verdict
A special election when voters
will ' have the opportunity to
authorize or refuse an. increased
salary .-schedule for Salem teach
ers, was recommended, by individ
ual, members of. the school-board
Tuesday night; though the body
took no formal action, due to cer
tain legal technicalities.
Probable date for the election
was suggested as late in March,
with' arguments favoring the earli
est practical day in . order that
school officials may. know what
salaries will' be paid In time to
act intelligently when contracts
for the year 1926-27 are drawn
up.' Teachers are elected in
March, and" have until May to
sign their contracts. .
; Decision to avoid any appear
ance of blocking the movem ;nt on
the part of teachers and certain
groups of taxpayers to secure the
increase was voiced and, it is un
derstood, a petition will be pre
sented by the joint committee of
teachers and taxpayers at the next
meeting of the school board, set
ting into motion the machinery
necessary to call the election.
Considerable discussion turned
about he point of whether the
election would have to be held an
nually, or whether the increase
could be granted over a period of
years. Law declaring that school
boards could not increase expen
ditures beyond 6 per cent -of the
income during the previous school
year was- cited, and an opinion
will be secured by informed per
sons bearing npon this point.
.Amounts of the increase, it is
understood, will be left primarily
to the committee appointed to
bring , the -question to the public
mind, and the matter can then
be-settled directly by the voters,
i Whether the single' issue Qf in
creased salaries should appear on
the ballot,- or whether additional
items "such as maintenance" and an
appropriation for a new junior
high school site was balked, with
opinion favoring presentation of
the issues to the voters as separate
projects, rather than grouping
them into one lump sum.
Tme devoted by the school
board last night came in some
measure as a reflection of the
taxpayers meeting in the Rich
mond school district Monday night
when the gathering was held to
favor an increase in pay without
dissenting voice.
Individual members of the
school board, and the superinten
dent, expressed distinct sympathy
with the ambitions of those urg
ing the increase, declared them
selves certain that the present
salaries are low, but remained
aware of additional angles of the
financing problem. Direct voice
of the people, by election, granting
or refusing the increase -was held
as , the only .adequate answer to
the problem. : . .f.. ."'"V--

the situation, but that the request
was entitled to and would receive
consideration. It was -; added,

serve only to aggravate4 - matters.
