ABOUT YOUR HOME
Own Your Own and Be
Better Citizen and More
(By Wm. MrGilchrist, Jr.,
President SaJem Realty Board.)
Own your borne.
To people of limited means: Do!
yon want to possess something bet
ter than money in the bank, where
It is always ready to be spent?
Do you want to improve your
credit, financial position, self con
fidence and comfort?
Do you want to create the means
to get, at any time, the money to
start some business and be in po
sition to ask for it as a business
proposition and not as a humiliat
Do you want to be independent,
and give your family and friends a
great example that some of them
will follow after you do what they
thought Impossible to be done?
Do you want to show the earn
ing capacity of a nan combined
with the investing ability of a
good, sensible husband and father?
A rich man always owns a home.
Then buy a home.
Much praise is due the Salem
Realty board and business men
generally who are behind a move
i meat which will endeavor to en
courage more home owners. A city
of home owners is a city of pros
perity that is bound to grow and
keep right on growing.
"There is no greater measure of
good citizenship." is the strong
manner in which Geo. F. Vick,
president of the Salem Chamber of
Commerce, expressed his beliefs.
The "Better-Homes" Exposition
which is to be held in Salem for
six days beginning February 13,
will do much toward c reating a de
sire upon more people of the val
ley to become home owners.
Has Many Advantages
In discussing the advantages of
home building and owning, it must
be remembered that the word
home means more than Just a lot
with a house on it. The advant
ages of building and owning your
own home are numerous, but in
my judgement one of the import
ant benefits is the stability home
ownership adds to the community.
The home owner is usually more
permanent in his neighborhood
than one who rents. He takes a
more active interest in all civic af
fairs; he Is more solicitous for
the peace, health and safety of his
community. His influence for
good is felt in eociety. in business.
In religion and in public affairs.
When the lot is purchased and
the young wife and husband spend
hour after hour planning the de
tails of the home, the happiness
brought" by the days of planning,
must be experienced to be realized, j
When the house is completed and!
the furniture moved in. the paint;
removed from. the window panes,!
the polieh burned off the new stove
and the new broom broken in. then
the work of ' home building
tins in earnest.
The Love .of Home
Every day brings a new sense
of joy, happiness and security.
There is a story of love and de
votion twined around every tree.!
every vine and every porch post.j
Upon the home cherished by kind
ly deeds of self denial the bleas-'
Ings of peace, happiness and con-
tentment are sure to come. From
the vine covered doorway happy
children with beaming countenan
ces go tripping off to school In the
morning and romping back in the
evening. They. too. have an im
portant place in the community,
for in the happy years of childhood
ties of friendship are formed that
last throughout a lifetime.
Improvements are made on the
place from year to year, and in
place of accumulating a great bun-
die of worthless rent receipts the
home owner usually finds that bis
property has increased in value
and without anyWoss to himself he
has enjoyed the satisfaction of liv
ing in peace and comfort in a real
"Home, sweet home."
Walt Mason had evidently just
experienced the thrill of owning
his own home, which inspired him
to write the following lines:
I own my own home, and life's
a pome, from outside to the cen
ter; I'm full inside, of honest
pride; I'm sorry for the renter. I
own my shack both front and back,
the kitchen and the porches; And:
here I sit and feel I'm IT, and
smoke my five-cent torches. The
tree and vines are strictly mine,
the concrete walks and hedges-!
s The elms and yews, old cans and
shoes, the ax. the saw and wedges
The house is old, the rooms are
cold, the roof is often leaking. And
in the night when men sleep tight.
I hear the front gate creaking.
Bat it is mine, this shack of(pine
; and there's no mortgage on it;
And here I sit and do my bit at
writing ode and sonnet. My house
Is cheaD. no footmen keep their
vigils in the hallways; No bntler
stern with pomp to burn here
combs ia auburn galways. My
house is punk, the doors are
shrunk, the windows shade and
rattle; And on the stairs and un
der .chairs the cats and rata give
battle. It Isn't fine, but It Is mine;
with smiles I bid yow enter; I am
the king while here; by Jing ; I'm
sorry for the renter.
CURB SECRECY AMONG "
DIPLOMATS AT HAVANA
(Ceattnaed trmm pr 1)
dent Coolidge landed on Sunday,
passed out of the harbor several
hour later. The transfer of the
president to the Memphis was for
the purpose of convenience when
Key West was reached.
Almost Immediately the dele
gates took up the work which
brought them 'to Havana, that of
organizing for a discussion of the
important questions involving the
American republics and seeking to
strengthen the ties between the
various states. One important
step has already been taken where
by open diplomacy and full publi
city is virtually assured.
Work Begins at Once
Losing no time in starting work
after the feetivities of President
Coolidge-s visit to Havana, chiefs
of delegations found themselves in
practically unanimous agreement
regarding the beginning of the
conference as a whole.
"The happy solution of the prob
lem of public or executive commit
tee sessions was hailed by all dle
gates as symptomatic of the ease
with which apparently difficult
problems could be disposed of if
good will were present, and the
accomplishment introduced a note
of optimism into all forecasts as to

Measles and chicken pox boost
ed the communicable disease to
tal for December, to 86, an In
crease over last year of 38.
In December, 1926, 22 cases of
scarlet fever were reported and
during December of. this year, on
ly six cases were reported.
Only one small pox case is at
present under quarantine. The re
cent epidemic at Chemawa Indian
school has died down and only is
olated cases in various parts of
the county have been reported.
Whenever a case has been dis
covered, strict quarantine has
been promptly established and
vaccinations have been given.
Since the outbreak at Chemawa,
more than 1,500 vaccinations have
been made, mostly on school chil
dren. Only one case of infantile par
alysis was reported during Decem
ber. This was a mild case, and it
appears that the epidemic is about
at an end, the report states.
Fewer absentees from school
were noted during December. Ab
sentees at Garfield were due to
measles and at Highland, to chick
en pox. Ordinary colda kept some
children out of school.
In December there was a mark
ed jump in the number of deaths
reported from 55 in November
to 77 in December. Of the total
number of deaths reported, 30
were due to diseases of the heart
and blood vessels. Five were dne
to kidney disease, six to cancer,
eleven to diseases of the respira
tory system, including seven in
stitutional tuberculosis cases.
Theincrease in deaths was ac
companied by an increase in births
from 4 6 in November to ,84 in
December. In December, 1926,
there were 72 births. Of the total
number of December, 1927, 44
were male and 40 female.

sive program for the rehabilitation
of the district. He said the only
obstacle now confronting his com
mittee was that of securing con
trol of the remainder of the bonds.
He urged the commission to join
the bondholder's committee in in
forming the bondholders of the
necessity of coming into the or
ganization for the protection of
their ownl nterests.
Mr. Dunne said that, in his opin
ion, the existing laws did not go
far enough In that they did not
provide for the colonization of the
projects and aid to the settlers af
ter the reorganization has been
completed. He said this situation
might be corrected by future leg
islation. It was brought out that
with the necessary cooperation on
the part of the land holders and
creditors an ultimate satisfactory
adjustment was assured.
Colonel Place reported that vir
tually all of the bondholders of
the Silver Lake district were rep
resented by a committee and that
the assent of these bondholders
had been secured through person
al solicitation over a period of
more than two years. He said all
of the bondholders had agreed to
the reorganization nlan with th
exception of two.
Both the Summer Lake and Sil
ver Lake districts are located in
northern Lake county The Silver
Lake district has $274,000 in
bonds outstanding and its indebt
edness to the state is $66,000. The
project contains approximately
6000 acres or irrigable land, about
2500 acres of which have been cul
tivated. The Summer Lake district has
1325,300 in bonds outstanding and
its .indebtedness to the state is

A direct attack upon the pro

cific and Great Northern railroads
was made today In testimony be
fore the interstate commerce com

Paul and Pacific railroad called to
the stand Chester Oliphant, its
chiefi statistician, who declared
that the projected merger "would

but would bring in their con

A further point jot importance
Oliphant declared to be a fact, was
that the mileage' of the northern
