Loser Advertises
In The Statesman
An nonest man ntmseir, and a
believer in the honesty of others,
he promptly came to the -office of
this paper and Inserted the ad
vertisement quoted above.
Saturday afternoon Mrs. J. L.
McKinney, 1387 North .Church
street, was in Roth's grocery store
making some purchases for Sun.
day's dinner. A little while be
fore she had collected $2 in one-
dollar bills for some work, and
put them in her purse.
wnue standing at the store
counter Mrs. McKinnev felt a
child brush against the hand in
which she held her purse and.
looking down, she saw some bills
on the floor. Thinking she had
dropped her two $1 bills she
picked up the bills and put them
in her purse.
On leaving Roth's Mrs. McKin
ney opened, her purse to get some
change for bus fare.
Finder of Money
Work for Living
Wow Mrs. McKinney is a poor
woman. She works as a laundress
and her money comes hard. So
It was that when she opened her
purse and, examining the bUls
mpre, closely, saw 1100 in the ear
ner of one, she almost fainted..

rolled the currency and nearly
collapsed to see a second SI 00
bill. Her own two dollars also
were there.
All Saturday night she worried
over her find and early Sunday
morning he scanned the pages
of the New Oregon Statesman.
There it was. the thing she
sought; an advertisement an
nouncing the loss of two $100
bills! The finder was asked to
return them to this office.
Which Is exactly what Mrs. Mc
Kinney did Monday.
What reward Mr. Shelley will
offer and what reward Mrs. Mc
Kinney will accept are not yet
known. That is between the loser
and the finder.
One thing has been disproved
and that is the old saying: "Los.
ers weepers; finders keepers."

World Record Trip
naval AIR STATION, Lake
hurst. N. J. Oct. 15 (AP)-rThe
only two dirigibles ever to fly the
rrn from Germany were
brought ' together today when the
Graf Zeppelin, world's largest air
ship, arrived in America, four
years to the day after the navy's
Los Angeles completed the same
For three days crowds had been
waiting at the air station to wit
ness the arrival of the greatest
airship afloat, but all except 5.000
or so had given up the vigil when
the ship arrived
Those few thousand, however,
were so eager to see the airship
that they broke " through police
lines and fought for the opportun
ity to touch -the dirigible o"- at
least get close enough to shout
greetings to passengers and crew.
Vessel Appears
Just at Dusk
The Graf Zeppelin appeared
first as a faint smudge low above
the northern horizon. Slowly, as
daylight began to fail, it took
definite form although its met
alled coat remained dim gray in
the dusk. Half again as big as
the Los Angeles, which completed
a similar journey just four years
ago today, the Graf Zeppelin
seemed to swell as it approached
until it blotted out half the' sky.
It showed no lights in the deep
ening gloaming and its idling en
gines were inaudible until it was
above the field.
As day turned Into night the
mammoth ship glided low over the
trees that fringe the air station
and dipped toward the flying field
and the waiting crowd. A turn
of the ship brought a lighted cagin
window into view, striking bright
against the gray sky across which
the airship slipped like an animate
Crowd Shouts Its
Welcome to Ship
As the ship dipped earthward
the crowd below raised a wild
shout of greeting and observers

full throttle to dive downward to
a position near the mooring mast.

efforts from an average of $53 7
a year to $1287.
Discussing Smith as a states

legislature in New York.
The government under repub
lican domination in the last eight
years has been "the worst mis
managed that the United States
ever lived under," Mr. Robinson
He stressed the long residence
abroad of Herbert Hoover, and
said that in his eight years on the
cabinet, Hoover had contributed
no constructive ideas for the con
duct of public affairs.
Senator Robinson made no men
tion of farm relief, prohibition or
religious intolerance, subjects he
has discussed in other addresses.
He was introduced by Justice Co

tomorrow for an executive order
delaying the execution would be
barren, since California law for
bids the governor to grand com
mutation of sentence on one who
has been twice convicted of a

Pre'sent Day Manners
As Contrasted with
Old-time courtesy.
RECENTLY a Salem youth
said to. his mother: "Why
is it that Dad always gets up
every time you or any other
woman comes into the rom?"
What her reply was is not ma
terial. The point is, what does
Salem think of the manners of
the present younger generation
as compared to those of its fa
thers and mothers? In order to
get some idea the New Oregon
Statesman put this question to
several persons Saturday. This
is what they said:

ing salesman, said: "Personally
I do not see any need for the ex
aggerated politeness of the old

younger generation is not rude,
in my opinion, but merely more
direct. It does not believe in
shams and goes straight to the
point. When I see anyone with
the old time exaggerated man
ner today I think he is affect
ed." MRS. ALICE H. DODD, house
mother at. the Beta Chi sorority,
said: "Young people today arc
as amenable to the learning of
manners as any generation that
preceded them, when they have
the teaching. The lack is in
the home. A tendency to self
ishness is Bhown in the lack of
Informal hospitality; and that
this tendency is not merely su
perficial, is proven by the fact
that the. young people are less
willing to oblige, less willing to
inconvenience themselves."

expected since women have
gone into business in such
numbers. Men are no longer

Bourbon Promise to Leave

With Suspicion
Al's Campaign Promises not
Taken at Face Value
by Republican
Associated lress Staff Writer
BOSTON. Oct. 15. (AP)
Carrying his campaign into the
heart of industrial New England.
Herbert Hoover tonight laid be
fore the people of a democratic
metropolitan stronghold an attaek
unon the tariff principle laid ,
down in the platform of the dem
ocratic party.
Addressing the country gener
ally over a natton-wiae raaio
hookup, the republican presiden
tial candidate couched his criti
cism in strong terms. He de
clared that revision of tariff da
ties to the democratic platfown
standard of "effective competi
tion" would mean such a lower
ing of the tariff walls that Ameri
can wages and farm prices would
be depressed.
Four Speeches Made
On Way to Boston
The candidate spoke in Vfee
arena here after a day of str-
uous campaigning that carried
him across the breadth of she
state and saw him deliver four
speeches more than he has made
in any of his previous Jaunts dar
ing his drive for the presidency:

form and his entrance brought

Launching into his speech, the
candidate first discussed foreitta
trade and its importance to the
country generally. Then A
turned to the tariff and finally
the merchant marine. The thsee
phases of his subject apparently
struck close home to the New
Englanderg and he waa applaud
ed with enthusiasm.
Flood of Foreign
Goods la Feared
Taking up the tariff h: de
clared,' that the application ot U
democratic formula would mearif"
"a flood of foreign goods, of for
eign farm produce and consequent
reduction of wages and income
not only of workers and farmenr.
but the whole of those who labor,

The republican candidate
not make any reference to bJa
democratic opponent, but stated
his own views on the tariff cow.

Smith discussed at Louisville

clared the commission a valuable
arm of the government and added
