Silk Worms in America
Must Work Year Around
LOS ANGELES. (AP)
Southwestern United States some
day will become one or the great
est sources of supply for raw ma
terials for the silk industry but
American methods will extend the
operations to a year "round basis.
This is the opinion of Mary G. In
Kersol. University of Southern fcal
ifornia i nslruftor.
Until recently the United States
had doue little in sericulture, but
a silk enterprise has been launch
ed at Eseondidn while mill are
operating at Hermoa Itpa.h
Glendale and Los Angeles.
"The Vottaue' system of the
Orient will find little favor here".
Miss Inpersoll says, "since it op
erates only a few weeks of the
year. The most primitive meth
ods are used in the Far Best."
Under proposed American meth
ods the silk farms will be operat
ed on an intensive scale, while the
mills will be kept in operation the
entire year.
number is considerably increased.
Only one . man who has escaped
during the past year is now at
large.
"W. E. Golden, the deputy war
den, will see that you go where

The accompanying design for
a five-room house has won
favor with- a number of dis
criminating home builders. The
exterior is attractive and the
house is particularly adapted to
a corner lot, though it will fit
nicely on any well located 50x
100 foot site. Size may be al
tered to suit the needs of the
builder without affecting the
beauty of the design. Stucco
may be used to advantage in
place of shingles it the builder
prefers this material.

The layout of the rooms is well suited to the average sized family . The living room is of
ample size and connects nicely with the hallway leading to other parts of the house. The two
chambers are well placed and each ia equipped with good closet space and with cross ventilation.
The dining room is light and airy and may bj made supplementary to the living room for
entertainment purposes. The kitchen has the u ual service appointments well arranged and its
connection with the hallway will prove a convenience to the housekeeper.

First National Bank Building
Nearing Completion Many
Homes Planned
While building operations must
of a necessity be somewhat cur
tailed during the winter months,
there seems to be considerable ac
tivity amone the Salem builders.
Many residences are in the course
construction in all parts of the
city. The greatest activity how
ever, appears to be in the section
lying between the Highland school
and the Fairgrounds road where
-0 or 3 0 new homes are being
built.. Building operations in this
section being perhaps due to the
proximity of the new linen mills.
Th new First National bank,
building is nearing completion
and will soon be ready for occu
pancy. Iadd & Bush state that
it will yet be several months be

building will be completed due to

Bank of Commerce are progress
ing, the new vault door arrived
this Week and is being installed.
It is estimated that iliese im
improvements will take at least
two months yet.
A contract has been let to J. J.
Longcore for wrecking the Fra
ternal Temple on Liberty street,
which was practically destroyed
by fire last week. Mr. Longcore
will begin operations as soon as
the insurance claims have been
adjusted. The Fraternal associa-
I tion. owners of the building, have
not yet announced their plans
relative to rebuilding and it
seems no definite steps will be
taken in the immediate future in
this connection.

One of the most populous and

the Szechuanese to the proposed

VISIT TO PENITENTIARY
fCn'inut'd from page 1)
county is three to one republican,
so it shows that I must have had
a good many republican friends to
be elected three times as sheriff.
From the sheriffs office I went
as assistant cashier to the First
National bank of Condon. I went
to Astoria, where I was in the
real estate and insurance business.
I was there at the time of the big
fire. I was appointed principal
J keeper for the penitentiary, serv
' ing under Warden Johnson Smith.
After a month I became deputy
warden, the position now held by
W. E. Golden. On December' 5.
1925, I became warden. I have
two children, both boys. Elton,
my oldesl son. was married recent

school.

one is a bootlegger, and I don't
recall why the other two came
here. The average terra served is
1 year and 8 months and 24 days.
The lifers bring up the average.
We have one prisoner who has
been with us for 34 years. More
than half of our inmates are less
than "0 years old. About 25 per
cent range from 2 to 24 years of
age. the average being 33 years.
About one man in four who is
committed has had a prior con
