At The west half of the South Com
mercial street bridge over South
Mill creek will be opened to traf
fic today, marking the comple
tion of the first unit of Salem's
f Tridge reconstruction program
authorized by the voters just a
year ago next week.
The city paving crew has fin
ished laying the approaches, and
the bridge itself has set a suffi
cient length of time to be ready
for 4ise. The east half has been
in use for a number of weeks.
Construction of the bridge has
been directed by Fengeson &
Llndstrom, contractors.
Fill Yet to be Made '
Strictly speaking the bridge will
not be fully completed for anoth
er full year, for a fill is yet to be
made at the south end. For the
fcX present, this section is reinforced
with planking, leaving room for
the present fill to settle and more
earth to be placed there later. At
the north end, the fill will not set
tle more than can be remedied by
adding more asphalt. .V1-,
While the bridge will be in use
sometime today, the contractors
will be busy for some time, clear
ing away the temporary, underpin-

Others Well Alone
Two other units of the bridge
program are well -along toward
confUetion. The South Winter
street bridge will be opened to
traffic, in about Ywn- weeks. The
17th street bridge will not be used
until the pavement Is laid up to
it. which will not be eonsumated
for about a month.

MARIAN MILLER
APPROVES IDEA

MILLER'S MARRY
likes Name to Herself; Recently
Received Offer of Mat
rimony The renowned Marian Miller,
whose printed words thrill any
number of persons every day, is
herself not immune from thrills.
This fact is testified to by the
lady herself in a letter to The
'Statesman commenting on a news
article published June S. The ar
ticle told of a Marian Miller, aged
20, of Princeton, Minnesota, who
on that day was married to Clyde
R. Galley. 27, of McCloud, Colo
rado. The two had come all the
way to Salem to become husband
and wife.
The letter itself, reads as fol
lows: "To the Editor: I was nattered
and thrilled when I found that
the Statesman, a paper' I admire,
had given me some fine publicity
on the occasion of the marriage of
a sweet young; girl of 20. I think
the date was June S. You made a
clever little news story about the
fair Marian Miller who became a
bride la Salem. I was pleased to
see that you had noticed my col
umn (or part of a column.)
"That was the third Marian
Miller whose marriage I have no
ticed recently and I'm hoping the
Marian Millers, who wish to wed.
will all succeed in capturing good
husbands because I like to have
the name to myself. I don't mind
Uhe dear Marians marrying but
when they charge new frocks -to
me I object. Someone from Mon
tana opened an account with a
smart shop in Spokane last year
and they sent me the bill.
"The other day a young man
aged 24, asked me to marry him
(by letter) and he'd seen my pic
ture. A woman came from way up
by Bend to ask me to tell her for
tune by her writing. She never
thought of mailing a sample.
"Again I thank you and I'U
stop or I'll start telling you some
of the blight say4ags-4nydwttgv-ters

With best regards, fraternally
yours,
Marian Miller.

of Management
w Amu ruiv, June ZZ.
AP Mrs. Helen Tufts Bailie of
(camo-ridge, Mass., was expelled to-
j day from the Daughters of the
i American Revolution for clrcuiat-
ganizatlon.
The expulsion of Mrs. Bailie
was ordered in an. unanimous de
cision of the D. A. R. national
board of management, made pub
lic tonight. The charges against
the Cambridge woman which grew
out of the publication of an al
leged D. A. R. "blacklist" of rad
ical speakers were aired before
the board yesterday in an execu
tive hearing.
The testimony of Mrs. Bailie,
however, eliminated the so-called
"blacklist" from any connection
the charges with the national of
ficers. Before the national board
of management acted upon the al
legations, the executive committee
investigated them and reported
that they were "well founded."
Mrs. Bailie also was alleged to
have published a pamphlet in
which she criticized the officials
of the society as being under the
influence of militarists.

bile and the five men marooned
with him on the arctic Ice today
received their second store of sup
plies from the air. Majors Mad
dalena and Penzo flew their big
Italian seaplane over the camp of
the refugees. They found no op
portunity to land, however, and
again made use of parachutes to
get provisions and radio equip
ment to the stranded men.
While this effort of the fliers
was successful, they failed to f.nd
any trace of Roald Amundsen and
his five companions in the Frenrh
seaplane piloted by Rene Coil

The Italian aviators also report
ed they had seen nothing of the
alloon portion of the Italia or of
the seven men who were carried
away with it when the gondola of
the big aircraft was torn loose on
Msy 25.
Neither was there news of the
other three members of the Alalia's

walk across the Ice from the place
where General Nobile and his com
panions were spilled.
With Nobile left to await res

Despite the seeming gravity of
the Amundsen situation, there is
