GET READY FOR NEXT YEAR
Walter S.'Low, Salem's street commissioner, is working
xm hiTnmetieth block in this year's street, paving program
And he is hoping to finish twenty-five more blocks before
the" rainy season makes the finishing of paving jobs impos
sible. Parts of Salem are being made over with the paving of
the streets; made beautiful; made into inviting districts for
pleasant homes ; taken up out of the mud of winter and saved
from the dust of summer. Wherever a strecx is paved, its
residents immediately take more pride in 'improving their
premises, in keeping up their lawns in planting trees, ir
growing flowers. .
t Salem is becoming "The City Beautiful," and this is being
greatly facilitated by the paving of several miles of streets
each year."" ; -. '
There will be a larger program for next year
. And every preparation ought to be made for it. There
are several ways. 0ne is to prepare the largest possible num
ber of streets this fall and winter, by draining and graveling
them, and . allowing the travel of the rainy season to pack
them and render them fit for the finishing work-next sum
mer. There are a number of sections where this should be
done . . .
Notably the one surrounding the new linen mill. A years
time can be saved in many cases by the preparatory work.
The thing to do is to save it.' .
THIS IS THE UNITED STATES
. vj' Douglas Fairbanks, actor and motion picture star, makes
the amazing and" amusing suggestion that, because in Russia
the government has a ; monopoly of the film industry and
produces pictures' that h calls remarkable, the United States
should take over anctcontrol motion pictures, in this country.
Motion pictures, says Mr. Fairbanks, are recognized as
an instrument of propaganda, and the government might as
welluse. that .instrument. - ' ' 1. -
There: are at least three objections to the plan Mr. Fair
banks Suggests'. - s
? . In the first place it is based on a fallacy. Motion pictures
are not anjnstrument of propaganda in any free country..
They constitute a form, of artistic entertainment capable of
wonderful development and expansion.
; In he 'second place, if the government ought to own and
control motion pictures; it ought also to own the plays of the
spoken drama and the theaters at which they are produced
And Ijie pewspapers and magazines--; ,?
And, finally, motion pictures would degenerate inevitably
fhtof n instrument of propaganda,' and both art and freedom
would be remorselessly sacrificed to bureaucratic interests.

(AP) As the result of the kill

estimated by potato producers and
shippers here today that the Yak

been reduced from 10 to 23 per
cent, or 1200 to 1300 cars less
than normally expected this year.
The reduction will be caused by
the vines being killed, thereby

$350,000 Toward Struc
ture, He States .-. .
The state of Oregon sadly needs
a new offico building for housing
various state departments and
commissions that are now scat
tered all over Salem and Portland,
Thomas B. Kay, state treasurer,
told the local Lions club at its
luncheon yesterday noon. JFI
nances for the new building could
be raised chiefly by the depart
ments themselves, he believes.
The state is hampered in appro
priating money for such a pur
pose by the six per cent tax limi
tation, which allows' only a six
, per cent increase In property tar
each year over tne tax oi me year
before. The property tax Is low
now because it was cut down In
1923, the year of the Income tax
here, and it will take a long lime
to build it uu again.
"No one would fail to advocate
this new building If he aawtthe
basement ot the state house,
where many state employes are
now compelled to work," said
Mr. Kay. " This basement Is
dark,, unsanitary, and has a very
lof roof. Working conditions in
it are very bad." -
The various commissions now
pay about $40,500 for office rents
annually, according to Mr. Kay,
and they should be able to raise
between $300,000 and $360,000
toward the new building. He cited
the automobile license tax" as one
