THE AMERICAN LEGION FOR PEACE
The outstanding feature of the address of Edward E
Spafford, national commander of the American Lejrion, to
the splendid audience that filled the Salem armory to over
flowing last night; an audience made up principally of mem
bera of the Lejrion and the Legion Auxiliary of this section,
and their especially invited friends
The outstanding feature of the commander's splendid
address was his' explanation of the stand of the American
igiorvto the. last member, and the last member of the
Auxiliary, made up of the women of the Legionnaires, for
- ' peace.
He said the San Antonio meeting the coming summer will
go on record in favor of the Capper-Johnson bill for the uni
versa! draft of man power and wealth, to prevent slackers
This measure calls for a fair price for all labor and all
materials in case of war.
Its enactment into law will be a signal to the world that
the United States does not want war, but that if war does
come this country will be a unit.
The national commander said that a war at any time in
the future would not affect the great majority of the mem
bers of the American Legion; they have advanced in years
beyond the draft ages.
But they have been through the horrors and losses and
inconveniences of war. They know what war is
And they want to prevent war coming to their children
and the children of the rest of the fathers and mothers of
the United States. - '
The address of the commander was an able and impres
sive one. He told of the pilgrimage to Paris of the Legion
naires last year; the manner in which the Americans were
received by the French people ; how they were almost de
ified in the expressions and actions of the French people.
The American Legion is the most powerful organization
in the world for the bringing in of a period of universal
THE SANTIAM PASS
The disclosure of affiliation between the Hill railroad
system and the railroad project on the South Santiam river
brings a thought. j
Suppose that one of the railroads built up the canyon of
the Deschutes river had been built across the Santiam pass.
It is a low pass. The grades can be made easy. Suppose
the line had been extended to form connection with Redmond
or Bend. Suppose that it had been sent on eastward across
the interior plateau to Crane gap in Harney county.
Suppose the pine and fir adjacent to Santiam pass had
been made available as eastbound freight. Suppose the
Union Pacific had provided itself with an alternate line that
could be used In connection with the main line down the
rorge of the Columbia.
What would be the difference in the development of Ore
. gon today, had only the money which has been spent been
used in a way that would get "into tonnage," as the railroad
men say? ,
And if it would have been profitable a decade and a half
ago, why not profitable today, when the United States has a
population of 120,000,000, with need in proportion for lum
ber, mineral fertilizer, livestock and grain?
Likewise, if it is profitable to the Oregon Electric, as a
Hill subsidiary, to build up the Santiam, why will it not be
equally profitable to go on over the mountains to Bend and
thus form a new steel link with the Klamath Falls line and
with the great interior? '

That railroad is a project that ought to be consummated
To say nothing of a paved highway over the Cascades

One of the striking things in the growth of Salem is the
growth of her suburbs; especially is this illustrated in the
building activity in West Salem and Kingwood Park and the
high ground overlooking that section Kingwoo Heights.
Do you know of any other town that had 40yper cent increase
of its school population in 1926," and 60 per cent last year?
Or that is now approaching in building permits its record of
the whole of last year? There are other developments just
around the corner. In West Salem and Its environs, that will
give further surprises and "make more striking comparisons.
