In these days ol so many dobs

justify its existence, must be bie
to show a definite obJectiT and
point to concrete accomplish
ments. The Salem Kiwanis club,
during the past eight years of its
life has succeeded in doing a
sreat deal of work of material
benefit to the community.
During the first year, with Roy
Shields as president, the work was
largely that of organixatlon, get

and building a place for the club
in civic life. Even at this early
date however the club manifest

complishments may he listed the
Ughlng of the clock in the court
house tower and the placing of the
Chemawa sign at the Oregon elec
tric station at Chemawa.
Chemawa again came in for Ki
wanis attention when through the
efforts of the club' a four year
high school course was added to
the school curriculum.
Salem's summer playground
system, the wading pool in Marion
square and the bona issue which
made possible the building of
Parrish junior high, Leslie junior
high and the enlargement of the
high school all were backed enthu
siastically by the Kiwanis club.
The drive for the first unit of
the general hospital,, the Y. M. C.
A. building apd the Willamette
university endowment and Boy
Scout work were all given the
whole-hearted support of the local
Highway improvement has been
an active interest of the club.
They were first to boost for the
beautification of Holman park.
At this time the committee on
objectives was appointed and the
campaign of confidence was be
gun. In this connection a system
of talks about the various indus
tries of the Salem district was ar
ranged and much valuable public
ity for the Salem community was
gained. A cash prize was given to
the school student who wrote the
best essay on community resources
and these essays were read before
the club and published in the pa
Concrete Bridges Advocated
At this time the Kiwanis club
began advocating the system of
concrete bridges for Salem and
the $350,000 bond issue was later
passed. The beautiful and ade
quate bridges of which Salem is
now so proud is a tribute to this
work. At the same time the city
planning commission was sponsor
ed and later appointed. In con
nection with this the club spon
sored the change in the city char
ter winch would provide lor a
commission or city manager form
of government. Much constructive
work along this line was done.
Securing the aid of the Com
monwealth fund and the estab
lisment of the Marlon county child
health demonstration are due to
the efforts of Salem Kiwanis.
Children have ever been the
concern of the club and in addi
tion to the active work la Boy
r scout and playground activities
the club sponsored the opportunity
rooms, in the Salem schools which
have "been an Important step in
the advancement of Salem's edu-
- atioaal system.

west district secretary-treasurer.
He watches the sheckles, keeps
tab on the general secretarial du
ties and is one of Kiwanis' best
known members in the district.

Vocational guidance of boys and
girls of school age has demanded
much attention from the club and
a great deal of work along this
line has been done.
The Kiwanis club talked muni
cipal airport in the days before
the present one was even thought
of and aided materially the old
old airport at the state fair
For several years the club has
been working toward securing
the district convention for Salem
and now the city is to have the
pleasure and profit, of this gath
ering. ( - t
The Kiwanis is after all a serv
ice club, in the greatest sense of
the word. "What the service clubs
have meant to Salem is best
summed up in the works of Dr.
Henry Morris, past president of
Salem Kiwanis; "Service clubs
have done more for the benefit of
Salem than any otiier factor in
the community; more to bring
about friendly feeling, good fel
lowship and to tie the community
together than anything else in the
life of the city."
The Pacific Northwest Kiwa
nis district was organlted by rep
resentatives of the Kiwanis clubs
of Portland, Seattle, Tacoma and
Vancouver, B. C, at a meeting
held in Tacoma on January 17.
1919. The formation of the dis
trict was supervised by Interna
tional Secretary O. Samuel Cum
mings. who attended the meeting
Incidentally Mr. Cummings, now
a prominent life Insurance offici
al of Kansas City, was elected In

year. Guy Kelly, of Tacoma was
elected the first district governor.
