PORTLAND. Ore.. Aug. 29.
API Retnrninr from an Alas
kan vacation trip, W. M. Jardlne,
secretary of agriculture, arrived
in Portland today and remained in
seclusion because he had been or
dered to obtain much needed rest.
He came here from Seattle after
cancelling all his engagements
there, nartlv on account of a de
layed arrival of this boat in the
Pneet Sound Dort and partly, on
account of his need of rest.
The secretary was rreatly ben
efited by his three-weeks Journey
in Alaska, according to nis orotn-
er, J. T. Jardlne.
Tomorrow . afternoon he . will
visit the site of the proposed tram
un Mt. Hood and will spend the
night at Cloud Cap Inn. Friday
the secretary wll 1 be taken to
Hood River and there will board
a train for the east.
While in Portland Secretary
Jardlne will confer with Major R.
Y. Stuart, chief forester, who will
make the trip to Mount Hood.
Major Stuart's predecessor, Col
onel W. B. Greeley, opposed the
tram for Mount Hood and his
stand was, at that time, uield
hv Secretary Jardlne.
While here the secretary will
receive the official report of his
committee on the tramway, a re
port' favorable to the building of
the scenic railway. r No intimation

Vehicle Check Shows Peak
Close To That Of
c Larger Cities
Claims recently made that reg
ulation of traffic at several of Sa
lem's downtown corners should be
provided during the rush hours,
are borne out by a comparison of
traffic conditions here with those
in larger cities.
The most congested intersection
in New York City Is at 57th street
and Park avenue, and the peak
load of traffic there finds 47
vehicles per hour passing the In
tersection. That means approximately 75
vehicles ner minute, or one ve
hicle every four-fifths of a second.
Salem's peak load at State and
Commercial streets is approxi
mately 42 vehicles per minute, a
condition which prevails during
most of the noon hour and from
5 to I o'clock in the afternoon.
But there are protracted per
iods when vehicles are entering
that intersection faster than one
every second, a condition which
approximates that at the most
crowded corner on America's larg.
Peak loads at the busiest cor
ners in many of the other leading
cities run as low as 2800. which
is close to that at State and Com
mercial streets here. These cit
ies, of course, have traffic con
trol, either corner policemen or
automatic signals, at many inter
sections which do not carry traf
fic as heavy as the most congest
ed points here.

GENEVA. Aug., 29. (AP)
The troublesome request bj Costa
Rica for an interpretation or tne
Monroe doctrine by the council of
the League of Nations, will not
be included in the Agenda of that
body when it starts its autumn
session tomorrow. Instead the
subject will be considered private
ly. This was decided by council
leaders tonight. It is likely that
a reply of a sort will be sent to
the Central-American government
but this reply probably will be
confined to a fact statement as to
how the doctrine came to be men
tioned in the covenant of the lea
gue. The general view is that the
Monroe doctrine is a unilateral
proclamation by the United
States. Therefore, it is held, the
League of Nations is neither com
petent to explain nor justified in
expounding its meaning.
Several changes in council
membership are in prospect.

Who believed Salem's pop
ulation would grow at the
rate of 800 per year for the
next three decades?
Cities fail to foresee their
growth. No plans are made
for its direction. Finally the
city discovers that it has
problems. And one of these
problems is parks. Another
problem is the intrusion of
the gruesome cemeter y
among the homes of the city.
Memorial Parks meet
these problems. Their popu
larity and success are based
on this ability. That they do
so is evident Prices on this
type of property are contin
ually rising on account of
the steady demand.
Belcrest is on Browning
Ave. just off Liberty Road.
Visitors are welcome at any
time. But you cannot com
prehend the entire idea if the
plans for future develop
ment are not explained to
you as you see it. Through
some ladies we are soliciting
a little of your time to ex
plain these plans. There is
no obligation attached. We
ask only time enough, to
show this project to you and
explain it. Ideas and general
information are valuable to
all of us. We feel that all cit
izens of Salem will be inter
ested in the solution of an
important municipal prob
lem offered by a memorial
