B. F. Irvine, at the noon meeting of the Salem chamber of
commerce yesterday, had some pertinent things to say about
; the way California people advertise their state
And what better opportunities Oregon has, if she would
only take a leaf from California book on publictiy
How much more Oregon has to advertise.
H. A. Sprague, publisher of the St. Joseph, Mo.,News-Press,
recently had the following appropriate things to say about
. community and other advertising:
"Publicity is to a community what gas is to an automo
bile. 1$ is that indefinable something that pushes ahead and
develops growth, that brings people together for the com
mon good, that eliminates crying evils, creates public enter
prises and produces 100 per cent fine civic consciousness. It
is a modern business tonic, which once inculcated into the
gray matter of a populace, sooner or later induces every man
to respond to the call of improvement, thereby dissipating all
dry rot, bringing men into closer and better and more unsel
fish fpHnwshin. It is then and not until then that the
highest type of a true, intelligent, public spirited citizen be
comes an actuality. The mere gathering together of many per
sons who live in houses does not of necessity constitute a city.
Wehave a city only when men come to have common ideals,
when men come to develop a love for the community in which
they live and are ever ready to sacrifice time and money and
jenergy to the end that those common aspirations are realized.
' ProDerlv created advtrtlsinir develops character for a
community as well as for an individual. It creates this char
acter whether the investment is made by an individual, a
firm, a corporation or by the community itself. Publicity up
lifts the moral tone of a city more than all the ordinances and
courts and metroplitan police systems, combined and its ten
dency is continually to elevate. It generates desire waves that
groove in with the scheme of the city beautiful ; it pricks the
pride and warms the cockles of the hearts of men, which
condition germinates latent civic energy; it tends to curtail
adverse criticism on the part of 'sour bugs when the pro
gressive element of a population is extending itself to the
utmost in an endeavor to create and wish on the people much
needed public improvements, while the rest of the popula
tion, passively interested but . apathetically inclined, looks
idly on. It is one of the most deserving, hard-working, stim
ulating known influences in the development and elabora
tion of a city's resources and prosperity. Its value to a com
munity, therefore, cannot be measured by cold dollars and
"Publicity is a harbinger of constantly improving pros
perity. And your newspapers your chief mediums for talk
ing to the world are undeniably the truest, cheapest, most
dependable and most thorough disseminators of dent-producing
publicity yet discovered."

BUCHAREST. Rumania. May 7
(AP). Statement of the gov
ernment and of other 'sources dif
fered greatly tonight as to the
importance and volume of the
peasants' march on Bucharest in
protest against the present gov
ernment. There was no doubt
however, that t he regency and
caSinet were seriously disturbed.
The ministry of the interior to
night issued a formal statement
saying that all delegations to the
congress at Albajulia had return
ed to their. starting points. Th!a
was certainly true for the most
part, but of the 200,000 who had
attended the congress, 6,000 were
reported by other sources to be
marching toward the capital.
After the regents today had told
Julhi Maniu the peasant leader
that they would not ask the res
ignation of the government of
Vintila Bratlanu, they summoned
before them the premier and the
minister of the interior, J. C Du
ca. They were closeted with these
two leaders for more than two
hours discussing what reply
should be made to the demands
of the Deasants.
It id believed in political quar
ters that the "regency is entirely
on the side of the government,
but nevertheless there is much
speculation and anxiety regard
ing the outcome of the peasant
demands. It is thought in some
circles that the regency, ae a way
out of the dilemma, may ask
Nicholas Titulescu, the present
foreign minister, to form a cabi
net in order to placate the peas
antrv. among whom he is popu
lar. The government press says
that it would be foolish to allow
a "peasant minority" to speak in
the name of the whole country.

rural Rumania. 5.000 peasants
fresh from the Alba Ju congress
reached this town late toaay in
their march toward Bucharest
where they will present the Ru

a change in government.
To reach Sibiu they tramped
most of the night preceded and

Perfect order prevailed among

instructions not to empede their
march unless they try to incite tne

Serious differences terminating

the two peasant leaders, Manlu

the march have been revealed.
Mihllachl who is a deputy chief of

Manlu refused his sanction, say
