"Comradeship as Opposed
to Force" Hoover's
"That. Phase Intent of Kel
logg Pact," Says New
United States Ambassador Charles
O. Dawes tonight told a diniver for
overseas delects to the' fourth
biennial conrereii-e of the British
- empire service league that his
chief instiuctions Trom President
Hoover Lad be; to promote
'comradeship as opposed to force"
as arouer i;eivs?ri nations, me
Prince of Wales presided at the i
dinner as patron of the leasuc.
The ambassador said that phraso
"expresses my chief instructions
received from the president of the
United States as I left for London
to take up my duties as American
ambassador and to enter on offi
cial relations with the two great
English fpeakinp peoples. That
phrase expresses the Intent of the
Kellogg pact.
Service Men May
Unite in Slogan
"It expif.'b'ses a purpose in
which you.- comrades of the
American Legion may unite with
you. It expresses a purpose in
which former service men of all
armies of the World war, whether
they served with or against us.
may unite with you. To further
the ideal of comradeship as oppos
ed to force as arbiter between na
tions is to further the hope of
peace and progress and happiness
of all humanity."
Ambassador Dawes prefaced his
xemarks by a personal reference to
the Prince of Wales. When on
Memorial day the latter visited the
wounded and talked with them,
the ambassador said, "he went
straight to the heart of the
American people, not only as 'a
prince but as a man."
Prince Delighted -to
Welcome General Dawes
The prince had previously ex
pressed his pleasure at meeting
delegates from all over the world
and said the gathering was "all
the more important for the pres
ence of the American ambassador.
This Is the first opportunity I
have had- to welcome personally
General Dawes to this country. We
greet him as ambassador but we
also greet him as- representative
of the former service men of the
United States.

Douglas, Purvine, Williams
on Committee Which
Framed Program
The city council will be asked
shortly, probably next Monday, to
consider a food establishment reg
ulatlon. which has been in process
of preparation the past two vceeks
by a committee consisting of Dr.
Vernon A. Douglas, county health
officer, Ellis Purvine, member of
the county health unit committee.
and Fred Williams, city attorney.
The ordinance has two main
provisions: First, general sanita
tion of food establishment prem
ises; and second, health examina
tion for food handlers. Enforce
ment would be largely in the hands
of the city and county dairy and
food Inspector.
Food Establishments to be
Carefully Inspected
. Food establishments, in the or
dinance described as any place
where food is preparaed for sale
or sold, distributed or displayed
for sale, would be carefully in
spected not only for general sani
tation of the premises but for pro
per washing of dishes and utensils
and to make sure that only pure
foods be prepared or sold.
The health examination, as the
ordinance now stands only one be
ing required for each employe, is
designed to protect food from be
ing handled by persons with dis
ease. A health certificate will be
issued by the county health officer
to all employes and owners exam

Shall Scouts
Get Camp?
Up to Public
Contributors, six In number
came into the Statesman office
Tuesday to add their bit to the
fund for a permanent summer
camp north of "Mehama but slight
ly less than $100 was on hand
when the count was made at 6:00
o'clock and $200 was needed to
bring the campaign objective of
$300 to a successful finish.
Tomorrow The Statesman will
publish a list of all contributors to
the fund up to the present time
and it is hoped that at least a
score more local citizens will "do
their bit" to make tbe summer
camp a reality.
- According to O. P. West, scout
executive for the Cascade Area,
more than 150 boys will this sum
mer take training work at the
camp. Heretofore the scouts have
been forced to take their summer
work at camps provided by other
councils but with the erection of
a permanent camp cookhouse, per
manent floors for tents and the se
curing of a long-time lease on 37
acres of land near Mehama, the
Cascade area can now have its
own camp location.
West is very anxious to see that
the $300 is on hand this week to
purchase materials for the per
manent camp buildings. All work
on the project is being donated
Contributions should be mailed
or brought to The Statesman of
fice, checks being made in favor
of the Cascade Council of the Boy
Scouts. Judge Harry Belt, presi
dent of the council, has heartily
endorsed the project.

Many Phases of Problem
of Transportation Up
at Meeting
Dr. H. H. Olinger, chairman of
the Salem school board, and W.
H. Burghardt, clerk, were author
ized to enter Into negotiations
with J. E. McClean of Salem and
to complete contract if satisfac
tory arrangements are evident for
transportation of pupils from oat
lying districts to the local high
school, at Tuesday night's school
board meeting. Motion to that ef
fect was made by Director Frank
Neer. Negotiations will call for a
two-year service.
Neer's motion brought to a par
tial close several weeks of consid
eration of the transportation prob
lem placed upon high school dis
tricts through enactment of the
last legislature, and at the same
time his motion brought before
the board more clearly than ever
an me ranimcauons or tne im
porting" of pupils. The board
early went on record as opposing
entering into the bus business for
itself, due largely to a feeling that
another legislative session may see
fit to cancel the law, thereby leav
ing the district with a number of
"white elephants."
Numerous Problems
Bob Up Before Board
Problems which bobbed up at
Tuesday night's meeting and had
not been previously discussed in
cluded: drivers for the busses;
routes to be established and who is
to establish them; discipline to be
maintained in busses; number of
pupils to be transported in each
bus. Discussion of liability in case
ot accident was also indulged, the
paramount question being wheth
er or not the district will be lia-
'ble when it simply contracts for
use of a bus. The clerk read
statement prepared by W. M.
Smith of the state superinten
dent's office from previous cases,
in which it was found school dis
tricts were not held liable in such
instance. Whether or not the
board of directors would be liable
was held a different proposition,
dependent npon facts in the case.
Several members stated that
McClean had told them he intend
ed to hire high school boys to
drive some of his fleet, this asser
tion meeting some incredulity.
McClean could, of course, hire
such boys cheaper than older per
sons. The board will hold an ad

If suggestion made by Dr. H. H.

board meeting should bear fruit,

lead of Willamette university and

sion of student body finances and
the present method of handling
them, asserted that the student
body could well afford to pay a
graduate manager, giving him a
generaous percentage and still
come out ahead. Board members
