WHAT THEY THINK

washing out on the line and yet
make sure it's going to be clean
with all those dirty, black specks
floating around. And you go in
to the store and find them on
the counter and in the vegeta
' ble display and on tho dry-goods
you buy. Cinders! I often won
der why they don't get rid of
them whether the powers that
be are helpless or whether they
are Inst careless and don't try."
J. H. WILLETT, local drug
gist, said: "The cinders that fall
on the streets here are certainly
a jiuisance. I have not investi
gated to find out where they
come ' from but I am certain
that the coming can be stopped.
Excessive smoke is prevented by
chimney attachments and there
Is surely something that will
stop the cinders."
CHALKIER LEE ' GEORGE,
local dentist, said: "The 'black
snow' is the biggest nuisance
Salem has. Something can be
done to stop the trouble and the
city should see to it that some
thing is done."
J. N. CHAMBERS, manager
of the J. C. Penney company
store in Salem, said: "We don't
like the ciaders but we do lke
the industries that cause them.
If we could have ten more saw
mills the size of Spauldmg'a
and ten more paper mills, we
would not object to ten times as
many cinders. But I believe they
canvbe eliminated without loss
to the manufacturers, and of
course they do cause the mer
chants great loss In damaged
MERRTTT DAVIS, head of
the commercial department at
the Salem high school, said: "I
do think something should be
done, to prevent the 'black
snow' because of the damage
and one might even say loss, to
which merchants are subjected
beeiuse of it. These cinders also
canae considerable damage to
property values close in espe
cially in south Salem, many re
fusing to buy in that section be
cause of them. They are incon
venient from the housewife's
standpoint, also, and are a gen
uine nuisance on wash day.
CHESTER C. BAKER, 1515
Saginaw street, "said: "I surely
think Salem's 'black snow' or
cinders are an outrage. It is
easy to see what they do to the
goods in some stores and the
mess they continually make at
entrance ways to the stores.
These cinders are not desirable
and" should be eliminated in
