-Editor Statesman:.
For the past eight years the Sa
lem Daily Statesman has conduet
ed an all-around slogan develop
ment campaign for the establish
ment of payrolls and Industries
suitable to the Capital City ana
all Oregon, and is planning to con
tinue It on a larger scale. The
Daily Statesman has recently In
stalled a larger press to enable It
to print a large enough newspaper
to handle the typed material
bringing out all the details of
nearly 30 fields of payroll indus
tries that hare been estaousnea
and are specialised upon to keep
the factories going and supply the
raw . material necessary to keep
the wheels of industry moving,
and employ all forms of Individual
and family labor.
This Hendricks newspaper had
to grow with the growth of the
community it waa building under
scientific stimulation and high
pressure expansion of an industri
al manufacturing and home build
ing campaign. With adence and
manufacturing undergoing and ex
quired plant and press facilities
stimulus of manufactured output,
a newspaper had to grow In capac
ity as well as the product end the
manufactured product."
With the eight year, period t
offering to every enterprise the
bonus of a progressive, optimistic
daily newspaper, it is no wonder
that Salem has become known as
the biggest general payroll and In
dustrial inland city in the state,
or that the Statesman has ac
quired plant and press facilities
that enable it to put out about
500 pages a year of aggressive, af
firmative community boosting ma
terial, as it has done in tbe last
CTfcht years, or that the capital city
lias shown the marked effect of
this by spreading In all directions
with thousands of new homes, fac
tories and business establish
ments. Through the provocative stimu
lation that increases tenfold the
chances of success of any payroll
industry. Editor Hendricks has
swung the community into the line

Ultimatum at President Calles
Demanding Obregon's En

MEXICO CITY. July 21. (AP)
Mexico City hnd the country
continued peaceful today but there
was a general tension among the
people, much suppressed excite
ment and a feeling of distinct un
certainty.
What is regarded as a virtual
ultimatum to President Calles by
Congressman Soto Y. Gama,
agrarian leader close to Obregon,
long a fiery fixure in Mexican pol
itics, that Luis Morones, minister
of labor, "Mas tgo or there will
be actual war" is. frankly discon
certing to elements who are work
ing to spare Mexico from another
period of chaoo and bloodshed.
However, it is felt that it is not
unrestrained speeches, but con
trol of tbe army' that really
counts.

tinues to observe discipline and

Obrecon's Enemies Blamed '
Whatever foundation or lack of
foundation the actual facts might
reveal for their belief, the Obre
gon leaders assert the conviction
that the political enemies of Gen
eral Obregon were behind the "re-
liglous fanaticism" which the po-
uce gy the Immediate in
insplration of the president-elect's
assassin.
The name of Morones Is con
stantly and openly used by Obre
gon. leaders in discussing the as
sassination. General Obregon and
Morones were long political enem
les 'and no expressions that the
secretary of labor has made since
the assassination lamenting the
crime have served to check the
feelings against him openly ex
pressed by some of the Obregon
leaders. Even threats to kill Mo
rones have been made publicly and
some of the secretary's friends
have advised him to get out of

a non-stop flight from Spokane,
Wash., when they landed at Wold-
Chamberlain field here tonight
They left Spokane shortly after
7:30 a. m.. Pacific coast time, and
they arrived here at 7:65 p. m
central standard time.
Mears and Collyer, by landing
here, cleared up doubts as to their
night stop today. It had been re
ported that they might moke
Omaha, Neb., their night stop, but
they were persuaded by Kenneth
Smith, member of a local aviation
company, to come here for the
night as his guest.
Their plane will be refuelled
and an early morning start for
New York is planned.
Leave Early Sunday
Shortly, after .their arrival
Mears announced that they intend
ed to leave Minneapolis again at
m. Sunday for the last hop of
their 25,000 mile record breaking
trip. If they can get to New York
by 5 p. m. Sunday, he said, they
will have encircled the world in
23 days, the fastest time ever
made.
Nearly 300 persons, we re at the
airport tonight to greet the fil
ers. Telegrams from them stated
they had left Spokane at 7:30 a.
m., with a 1,500 mile flight before
them and with a plane capable of
cruising 116 miles an hour. It was
expected that they would arrive
at the Wold-Chamberlain airport
about 13 hours later, or at 8:30 p.
m. Favorable winds over Mon
tana and Dakota helped Increase
the speed of the plane and
brought them ahead of schedule.
"Long Wait Made
Many persons in 'the crowd at
the air field had waited for up
wards of two hours for the plane.
The plane circled the field three
times before coming down. As it
touched the ground, the crowd of
persons rushed across the field to
the plane.
Mears was taken to the Smith
home where he expected to go to
bed. Although having traveled
1,500 miles since dawn, he looked
fresh. Pilot Collyer chose to re

although he was Visibly tired from
