In the new con quest of the air these friends have found a glamor and ro mance .that beguiles the fancy. They talk of the air mail ser vice, the importance of air planes to the coming scheme of transportation and of the pure delight of soaring through the skies. How does the "ro mance" of aviation appeal to others? Here is the answer: DR. CARL G. DONEY, pres ident of Willamette university, said: "I am impressed with the appeal which aviation makes to young people of vigor and im agination. The result in large measure contributes to the pro gress of aviation. I think that young people who consider go ing into aviation ought to be encouraged." P. A. EIKER, of the Eiker auto company, said: "The growth of aviation is bound to continue. Perhaps it has lost much of its romantic thrill, but it has become an integral part, of American advancement." T. M. HICKS, 2146 State street, said: "I think aviation is gaining ground am. is one of the big fields in future develop ment, especially in transporta tion and passenger service. From the standpoint of pure ro mance, I would say people are losing , Interest . in -the ocean flights and other once-Sppe ing aspects of the-air travel, it Is more of a business proposi tion now." - ' ' ' AUGUST SCHERMACHER." lieutenant, coast artillery. U. S. A. said: "At West Point all the cadets are anxious to go up. Most of them get more thrill and romance out of the antic ipation. There will naturally be a lot of romance until everyone is accustomed to aviation." JAMES CLARK, visitor, from McMinnvllle and student avia tor, said: "There is all kinds of romance to aviation. There Is romance to all new things. The most romantic thing about a v. iatlon is that you can't get out and walk home, in ease of trouble." e?--.... - V. TrGOLDEN, of the Golden Ambulance t Service, said: "Ro mance in aviation? Off-hand, I'd say that I dont know that there Is. To the aviators X sup pose it's Just hard work like any other labor.

VOICED BY MEYERS Smith Urges To "Carry On" Despite Overwhelming Defeat Party of Bryan and Solid South Stands for Liberal-, ity, Al Asserts NEW YORK, Nov. 13 (AP) Governor Alfred E. Smith told the country over the radio tonight that the principles of the demo cratic party were as great in de feat as they would have been in victory and that it was the party's duty "to carry on and vindicate" the principles for which it had fought. "Now that the dust and smoke of battle bars clearedaway." Smith said, I am grateful for the privilege extended to me by the democratic national committee of speaking to millions of my fellow citizens and of presenting to them some reflections of the campaign just ended. j ; "The democratic party is the oldest political organization in the United States, so well defined are the doctrines and the principles upon which it is founded that it has survived defeat after defeat. In the 65 years that have passed since the civil war, only two presi dents were elected on the demo cratic ticket. No political organi zation otherwise founded would have, been able during all these years to maintain an appeal to the peoDlebrpnght to the polls on last election day, fourteen and a half millions of voters, subscribers one more to its platform and renewing their pledges to the principles which it has upheld throughout its long history. Bourbons Almost Won Governor Believes "The verdict of the American people last Tuesday was not a crushing defeat of the democratic party that some of the headlines in the public press would have us believe. On the contrary, let us see what the facts are. Take the popular votes: "A change of ten per cent of the total number of votes cast would have changed the popular result. Considering it, from the viewpoint of our electoral college system, a change of less than 500,000 votes spread around the country would have altered the result. We have, therefore, the assurance from the election returns that the demo cratic party is a live, a vigorous and a forceful one. Existence of such a party is necessary under our system of government. The people rule negatively as well as affirmatively, and a vigorous and intelllgnt minority is a necessary check upon the tyranny of the ma jority. Experience has always shown even in our small political subdivisions that when the min ority party is weak and hopeless, grave abuses creep into the struc ture of government and th ad ministration of Its affairs. Two Party Government Is Declared Best When the majority party be lieves that it has everything its own way, it loses its fear of re prisals at the polls for misman- i rurn to Page 2. Please.)

MIERYHSFEII RIOT YET COMPLETE Favorable Outlook Seen; Plants Here Still Busy on Pack of Apples Reports current in West Salem Tuesday that the transfer of the West Salem cannery to Reid Mur- dock and company of Chicago had been ;completed, were denied by George F. Vick, an official of Uic Pacific Fruit Canning and Pack ing company, present owners. Recent correspondence has indi cated that the Chicago firm will take over the plant and make the improvements planned, but final action will not be taken un til J. H. Madden, Seattle represen tative of the company, visits the Chicago office. He is believed oh his way there this week. Three of the canneries of Salem are still running on apples, and at least one of them if not all three will be going on this fruit up to Christmas. The apple pack of the Salem canneries for this year will with out doubt be the largest in the history of the canning industry here. For any one of 'he three it is every few days as large as the whole cannery pack in 1910, which was. 80,000 cases. The Hunt cannery is going on apples, and will be operating on this fruit for at least a month longer. The West Salem cannery is be ing operated by the Northwest cannery people on apples. : The Starr cannery is running two shifts on apples, and this plant has steady going mapped out for six weeks yet up to Christ mas time; maybe longer. The canned apples are taken by me oaiery ana hotel ana res taurant trades all over the United States, and some are exported, go ing mostly to England, where they eater the same, trade. Prices to the trade vary, according to Tart etv.

The battleship Wyoming, which had picked up some of the survi vors, reported through a wreck ing tug that all the life boats that were launched by the Vestris had been accounted for, and a message from four destroyers that also were continuing the search, an nounced that one life raft still was adrift.
