European Travelers Seek
Passport Simplification
PARIS (AP) European trav
eling, for Europeans, would be
as easy as commuting, under the
scheme advocated by several trav
elers' organizations and under
consideration by the foreign offi
ces of many countries.
The plan, contemplates the use
of "European .passports' enabling
the traveler to! journey in any
country in Earope without the
usual : visa "annoyances or police
surveillance. They would be. Is
sued under. the authority "of an Inter-European
passport union and
would be printed In at least three
languages. Actual issnance would
be' by n committee of the consuls-4
general of each European country
in each capital,: who would ap
prove It only aHer a thorough in
vestigation of the" applicant. Those
unable to satisfy- the committee
would be forced to travel with the
usual national passport.

History of Ancient Stream's
Connection to Salem Re- r
fated by Smith
By John K. Smith
Where does the mill race come
from? If one follows it eastward
it will be found joining Mill creek
less than a 'mile beyond the city
limits. The creek channel how
ever, is found to be more or less
artificial all the way ' to Turner
where a well-boxed diversion of
its waters is turned through' the
city. From a point near Stayton
to Turner Mill creek takes a semi
circular course northward alonjr
the foothills past Aumsville. In
his segment the channel is also
somewhat artificial and within
three miles of Stayton it becomes
wholly so, its direction being care
fully guided through the city from
the est where it obtains its per
manent supply of water from the
North Santiam. This ditch fur
bishes water power for f6ur cities.
Additional waters are contrib
uted bV Beaver creek which, en
ters from the north at some dis
tance west of Aumsville and by
Battle Creek from the southwest
at Turner. Though the Salem
ditch and the irrigation ditch thtt
branches from it east of Stayton
and flows past West Stayton to a
creek near pleasant Grove reach
a distance of four miles apart,
both can carry Santiam water by
-means of gravity to Turner and
the former takes it on to Salem
in the same way. The elevation
above sea level at tb Intake abont
450 feet, extends through Stayton
half a mile, and descends rapidly
toward the .northwest to 360 feet

"To You From Failing Hands We Throw the Torch Be Yours
to Hold It High;" "The Torch Ye Threw'

By Irl S. McShe'rry
"In Flanders' fields the poppies blow
between the crosses, row on fow,
That mark our place, and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing1 fly,
Scarce heard amid the guns below
We are the dead Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Ix)'ed and were loved, and now -we lii

Take up our quarrel with the foe.;
To you from failing hands we throw ,
The torch: be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die,
We shall not sleep though poppies grow
In Flanders' fields."
French Create Opposition
Against Newjatking Films
PARIS. I AP) Opposition to
the "talking" film has1 grown to
such an extent in France that' a
"League of Silence" to combat it
has been formed by a number of
leading cinema critics and pro
ducers. .
' It" is a wonderful invention,"
say the critics, "but that is no
guarantee that it stands for real
progress as far as, the art of the
movie is concerned."
They declare that the film must
remain a- pi5tute,.4Hd that the
spoken word is not only super-1
fluous but actually destructive of
the imagery and symbolism of the
ideal "motion picture.
.T,;; i:y ".x
A nation will pause tomorrow,
Memorial Day, and commemorate
the patriotism and valor of tub
thousands of brave men who "gave
their lives that the idealis of this
country might be perpetuated
The season will join In this ob
servance and so inspire all to
greater sacrifices. Peace and
tranquility reign in this land
sunshine and shadows . playing
over tne green hillsides--rlppling
streams and great rivers winding
their silTery courses o'er plain
and through peaceful sleepy val
leys- the rustling of the ; waving
grain the gentle sway of the
beautiful flowers the singing of
the birds the soft whispering of
tne wina m tne towering: rir trees
all are symbolic of the peace of
this Memorial Day.
The spirit of Memorial Day,
which came from the . Northern
states, is one of the nation's
most sacred idealisms. Bitterness
and hatred have been removed;. all
unite In a general commemora
tion. . World wars have iljrought
folk of all nations Into" closer re-
lationship in as much as - tne
graves of our own dead and of
our allies encircle' the earth. These,
dead comrades, Fbo gave their
lives for their fellow, men, are
binding together the hearts 'f
mankind.' The spirit of the da
has spread until now we have al
most alworld Memorial Day, wTilch
promotes' a feeling of 'brotherhood
among the people of the earth.
And so toniorr"ovr people of many
nations will pause and at sunset
glow will have been brought clos
er together . after1 speaking tb6
universal language of flowers ad
tears In hpnfcrlng their dead.
