' here is going to take a step ahead
. of any establishment of a similar
character in Oregon and at the
same time . give Salem's youns
men the treat of their lives.
' It is no secret that Bishops plan
vast improvements to their store
n Commercial street, but there is
one feature of this expansion
which will put Salem in a class

be the College Room, specially de

And then, then will come the de
partment which is going to carry
a special appeal to the young men.
So far the store's' officials refer
to it as the college room or the
College shop, but it probably will
receive an official christening
when it is completed. Here the
young man will find everything
be could possibly need.
This room, entered through an
arch from the main store, will be
a triumph of the interior decor

ceiling and its walls will be grey
and of a special design and finish.
There will be no clothes displayed
for sale, the cases fitting into the
background in perfect blend. Lux

Bulletin Compares Sickness
Of Men and Women Of
Senator McNary yesterday re
ceived a request from the repub
lican national committee to give
an address at the Montana repub
lican convention at Helena,' Aug
ust 20. He was compelled to de
cline the invitation because of of
ficial business requiring his at
tention in Oregon.
Senator McNary also has re
ceived a request from the speakers
bureau of the republican nation
al cbmmittee to meet Herbert
Hoover, when the latter speaks
there next week.
It was said that Senator Mc
Nary will not be able to leave Ore
gon until after September 15, due
to the scheduled visit here of
General Jadwin, chief of army en
gineers. General Jadwin has ex
pressed a desire to Inspect the
river and harbor projects of this
district, : accompanied by Senator
McNary, who is vice chairman of
the senate commerce committee.
Colonel Lukesh conferred with
Senator McNary here Wednesday
in connection with the deenenin?
of the Willamette river between
Salem and Portland. Senator Mc
Nary expressed hope that the sur
vey would be completed by Sep
tember 1, so that the appropria
tion necessary for the improve
ment could be Included in the next
river and harbor bill.
, . That the human female la often
more sick than the male, in spite
of her longer average duration of
life, is one of the apparent- anom
alies that adult Illness records and
mortality figures show, bat which
has been disproved," In one phase
at leant, by a' recent survev of the
United States public health bureau.
The comparison of Illnesses' be
tween the sexes is set forth In the
current health bulletin, released
yesterday from the county child
It was found females' sickness
was less for children under 10
years of age, with boys more sub
ject to Infectious diseases and to
diseases of the eyes, ears and skin.
to colds and other respiratory
conditions and digestive troubles,
than the girls.
. But as son as the adolescent
period of life began the sickness
rate of girls became higher than
that of the males. Women suffer
more. than men. from, sicknesses
due to the common types of
respiratory diseases, to digestive
and nervous disorders and ' to
diseases and condition of the kid
neys and heart, despite the fact
that the death rate among older
women is lower than that of olderJ
There were some exceptions to
the general rule for persons over
10 years of age. The frequency of
accidents was greater among males
than females at all ages. In the 5
to 9 age period accidents of all
kinds among boys was much
greater than among girls, but In
adolescence, the sex difference In
accidents narrowed, with boys still
having the higher accident rate.
The- findings of this study cor
roborate the results of other stud
ies on adults at work, which have
been conducted by the public
health service in cooperation with
certain Industrial establishments.
and are In accordance with the rec
ords of absences among school
children due to sickness that have
been collected over a period of
years, the bulletin states.
