TEACHERS' SALARIES IN SALOI
Hie taxpayers of Salem at the school election yesterday
afternoon refused to vote' the $30,000 asked by the school
boardf to 'increase ;jthe salaries of teachers and $10,000 for:
repairs and fintentoce ;k t i V , :
I An4 the result ishbws a protest against higher taxes in
any. form, on property that is considered already over taxed--And
it shows also that the average man is likely to hesi
tate when asked to vote a tax that will immediately affect his
- - But this does not settle the question of the comparatively
low pay of the public schoolteachers of Salem
,t Tor the teachersV paid lower
salaries than. those of any other first class state; and the,
Salern teachers receive Jess jthaii those: of any other city in
Oregon any where near the size of Salem j
. Less than those of Pendleton, Marshfield, Medford,
Klamath Falls, Bend, Astoria, La Grande, Eugene, Baker, or
The Dalles. I . - - ;
; "In some way or other, the Salem teaching forces must be
better rewarded, .for their own deserving, and for the good
ofur public? school system. This city j ought not to be con
tent to rest under the implication that she is willing to either!
take what she can get in the way of teachers, or that she is
satisfied to have her high class teachers favored to either
accept niggardly pay or go to some other city, where their
services are more appreciated.
NEWS OF A FUTURE GREAT SALEM INDUSTRY
v Ma,' f ; j
' . Salem will in good time be the center of a great sugar
3 industry, and .the beginnings of it ought to come next year;
I with the planting of sugar beets for a local factory, or at
least fpr, shipment to an outside factory, or .both -
Arid eventually we will have factories making sucrose
it (beet Sugar) ,Pdextrose (corn sugar), jarid levulose (sugar
made from"artic)iokes), and each will be granulated, and in
the'.marlcet" they win all look alike; the only .'difference will
be in .their? sweetness, the sweetening value ; being ' 74 for
I corbsugir, 100 for beet sugar, and 173.3 for artichoke sugar.
- : There is; to be armuch increased acreage of sugar beets
' in' Utah this year; partly due to the fact that the farmers !
'' of northern Utah who have, been growing' tomatoes1 for the !
; eateries have refused to take a cut to $10 ai ton. They Te-
ceived $12"a' tori last year. They ; will plant, their t(?mato
t acreage to sugar beets, as they regard this crop as offering
better Teturns than tomatoes, or any other field crop they
'. . can.grow. - In-Idaho, and also in Colorado and Montana and
ii adjoining 'states, there will be increased sugar beet' acreage;
partly due to better contracts by.' the sugar companies. ' The
J spot cash payment (or first payment) in some cases will be as
high as $8 a ton this year, on delivery of the beets. It has
theretofore been $6.: , , v , ! . ,
;5 ;The iriaple sugar season in northeastern United States
: nd Canada is late and the. crop will be short. ' . ;
A Germantest shows beet crowns tp be a 'suitable substi
'i tute :f or-part of -'the ration of oats fori draft horses in hard
' service. -p-vrvMf i'-
4 .here is a nation wide campaign in Germany for a larger
'.ti tonnage of beets to the acre.and a higher content of sugar
to the ton, in order to increase the returns of the growers.
.Turkey has made sugar a
ootlegging of sugar from outside countries is common there.
' Milk chocolate sales' in the United States increased-to
jmbre than 290,000,000 pounds last year, compared with 194,-
t)00,000 poundfor f 1924, ; and 40)00,00() pounds in :i92l.
Tiis is something of a substitute for other sweets. . .
" An English authority has raised objection to the subsidy
paid by the British government to the nuinuf acturers of beet
sugar, saying it amounts to more than the! money received
-Tiy the growers of the beets that the subsidy pays for the
' bets,lwith j.2.shilhngs 3d over for each tonI However, par
? liament. voted the money because the English factories

. He naturally felt blufr t,

, That was the way Geo, W. Hug.
superintendent of the Salem pub
lic schools, felt last night.
; He is constantly at work trying
to - keep up the efficiency ot our
schools, and he hoped the people
of the city would understand that
this is a hard task, in face of the
fact that Salem salaries for, teach
ers are comparatively low lower
than, in other cities of Oregon any
where near" the else of Salem.
Now, with the adverse vote of yes
day afternoon, the task will be a
still harder one. ,
S ? K
But Mr. Hug will go on, doing
the very best 'he knows how. Per
haps the board may have some
thing in mind that will help the
situation. Perhaps the campaign
will have to go onT for certainly
Salem will not want to rest under
the reputation of bel?g una'ppre
ciative of the work of her splendid
teaching force. .

Only a drinking man Is quali
fied to debate the wet side of the
beverage drink question, and only
a dry man personally is qualified
to defend personal and national
prohibition, our civil courts will
not admit of hear say or reports
it must be just what the witness

the virtue of prohibition.

lished a record of forty four days
of abstention from food and was
helped out of his glass cage, a

numerous physicians . who have
been Interested in ' his case.
Though unable to walk and speak

seemed very alert.
The floor of his cage was car
peted .with cigarette butts . and
strewn, with mineral water bottles.
Jolly said that during the past
three days 'he had been -able to
smoke onll cigarettes a'day
since they affected his stomach.

amination found the : taster's di
gestive organs entirely dormant
and took hTmTb1!)!!, where
he will be fed a liquid diet ex
clusively, several teaspoonsful at
a time, under the closest medical
observation. Jolly; , .who is 25
years old. did his first fasting

Rhenish homeland. ;,He went on a
hunger strike and held out for 18
On the' present occasion when
he entered his cage ' he weighed
130 pounds, and his weight to
night was around 103. I ' .
The grpss receipts of this ex
hibition amounted to $45,000, of
which $10,000 was deducted for
the municipal entertainment tax.
His manager received $15,000,

proximately $20,000. j
Jolly's, success has inspired a

them a Hungarian woman under

No candidate will admit defeat
all are claiming victory, and, as
close as the race now stands any
one in the list ot candidates can
walk away with the biggest prize.
The Statesman's three automo

has now narrowed down to the
point where only the. "live ones"
remain, each of whom is going
with toppeed to get all their sub

Such tremendous enthusiasm
and energy waaftever before seen
In any kind of campaign as is be
ing shown daily in this race for
the automobiles and other prizes.
There seem to be no limit to the
pep that every candidate has stor
ed up for the finish which is but a
few days away. Contestants who
have formerly been the hardest
workers are, still going at It as if
they had saved all their energy for
the big finish. This indicates that
every single' contestant on the list
has plenty of fight left. It also
shows that the .candidates who
look 'harmless'!, now C will .- be
among the strongest when the end
comes. . They are.ail watching the
other fellow and arranging and

This much Is certain, whoever
wins any one of these prizes prob
ably will do so by a very narrow
margin though the winning scores
will doubtless L be large. . ' If the
present leaders are figuring that
their leads are ample they are due
for disappointment when the win
ners are announced. With such a
field of energetic 1 workers, m it, is
certain that some of the i'most
spectacular work of the contest Is
yet to come. The "never say die"
spirit was never more in evidence
at any other time than it is right
now. - "j it - ".
It is qnitesmre that some of the
