CORPORATION FORM FOR SALEM
. Every one who has had experience in administering the
municipal affairs in Salem agrees that this city should have
a commission form of government
; . But a commission form of government has come to mean
a number of things. There are several kinds. When thi3
form came into vogue in this country, 20 or more years ago,
a commission form meant something like that of Portland,
Oregon, where they have three commissioners, each one
administering some department of the city's affairs, but all
of them sitting together like a city council for the making
of laws or ordinances
And thus they have the same men both making and
administering the laws, which is against ancient and honor
t. There have arisen several adptations of this kind of v.
commission form of city government in the United States.
But more recently there is a strong trend towards what is
termed the corporation form.
This might be applied to Salem without much change,
by retaining the city councilmen representing the wards of
the city, and the selection of a city manager, either by the
mayor or by the mayor with the consent of the city council, or
by the city council itself
The city manager to select his assistants in all depart
mejits,.each4one being accountable to him; ju3t as the board
of directors of a corporation selects the president, and the
president chooses the officials who, under his general super
vision, carry on the business of the corporation.
The city council would make the laws or ordinances.
TJie city manager, through the officials under him, would
administer them. He would be responsible for the adminis
tration of the city's affairs.
v The writer believes this kind of a commission form of
government could be carried in Salem ; that the voters would
approve of it. And perhaps it would be the best form.
THE SUGAR INDUSTRY SERIES
j Article 3; Indirect Benefits
Great as will be the direct benefits to Salem and the
surrounding country of sugar factories in this city, the in
directCbenefits will be still greater
For they will be many and far reaching.
, F L. Crawford, secretary of the Michigan Sugar com
pany,; owning eight of the 16 beet .sugar factories in that
state speaking before the Michigan Wholesale Grocers asso
ciation at Detroit on July 15, gave out some startling infor
mation on this point, excerpts from his address showing the
Last year, the 16 Michigan sugar plants, carrying an
investment of $25,500 ,000; showed a slicing (consuming)
capacity of 17,000 tons of beets daily and an average normal
daily capacity pack of refined sugar of 4,225,000 pounds. For
the beets sliced the factories paid the Michigan farmers
$10,250,000, and in addition to this cash for their beets, the
farmers took from their fields a crop of feed in sugar beet
tops of a value of $1,250,000, and there accrued to the farm
ers invisible benefits covered by increased yield of other
crops following beets over those from land where beets had
not been grown of a conservative value of $2,000,000, giving
In all a valued, for this one crop alone of $13,500,000.
h j In addition to these direct benefits to the beet growers,
the' Michigan beet sugar industry maintained without ex
pense to" the farmers an agricultural staff of 225 men who
constantly circulated through the farm communities and
taught scientific agricultural methods and assisted the farm
ers in solving their agronomic problems of every kind. Furth
ermore, the beet sugar companies went into the labor markets
X)i the country at their own expense and brought to the
farming communities of Michigan more than 10,000 agricul
tural laborers to assist in growing and harvesting the beet,
corn,. hay, bean, potato, wheat and other crops produced in
that state. This service is of untold value to Michigan farm
ers for it is a fact that since the war and the passing of the
present immigration laws the farmer has been forced to bid
against profitable and highly organized industry' and. the
task of securing agricultural workers for the production, of
foods in the rural districts isT today, and from now on will
become increasingly, one of the most serious and vital prob
lems facing our nation.
. The farmers of Michigan, as most of those in other
states who grow sugar beets are partners in the beet sugar
.industry, sharing in the profits to the highest price sugar
may go, but are not forced to participate in the losses. The
price of other crops is susceptible to more or less violent
fluctuations. Within 30 days after the farmer starts deliyer-
1 ng his beets he receives a cash payment for all beets delivered
. during the month and this payment is repeated at the end
, 'of each" month during the harvesting period. The price does
not slump. Furthermore, the sugar companies will, when
' . necessary, advance to the farmer his seed, fertilizer, agricul-
tural implements and cash for the labor necessary for the
. production of the beet crop and in many instances have
!helpqd the; grower purchase the farm. f i v
In addition to tho benefits mentioned nd wtiich go
llirectly to the farmer, the Michigan' sugar 'manufacturers
purchase from the railroads annually from $2,500,000 to $3,-

The sugar industry is one that calls for a raw material
carrying a price giving a profit to the farmer, and which
enables him to diversify his crops and scientifically rotate
them in such a manner as will give a maximum yield per
acre of crops that follow and at the same time rebuild and
maintain the productiveness of his soil j

Such is the picture. !
We may look forward to such a picture in the Willamette
valley, with a greater number of beet sugar factories than
the 16 in Michigan. !

At the Bonney clan meeting at

was told of one of the Bonney
pioneer family women who crossed
the plains in IS 50. She brought
some peas in their covered wagon.
for her garden that was to be, in.
far off Oregon. The family set
tled where Woodburn stands now.
She planted her peas, and shortly
I hereafter she discovered a rooster
scratching them tip and swalloW
ing them. She caught the rooster
end chopped his head off and took
the peas out of his craw and re
planted them, and put a high
picket fence around them. And
she started pea growing in that
neighborhood with those peas.
She had not carried those peas
across the plains, in a Journey of
six months, to have them de
stroyed. The Malcolm Tire Company,
