USEFUL ASPECT OP
SCOH IS TOLD
One -of the most practical as
per'ts of scouting, that of helping
the boy to determine his inclina
tion and possibilities for his man's
life, is pointed out hf Scout Ex
ecutive O. P. West in a statement
made this week and as a preulde
to the annual boy scout financial
campaign, which will get under
way Wednesday, September 4, for
an intensive three-day canvass.
West's statement follows:
"How many boys that you know
have any idea of how they are go
ing to earn their living when they
grow up? How many are getting
any training that will help them
to earn their living? Most boys
drift from job to job, wasting val
uable time in experimenting until
they find for what work they are
best fitted. A recent survey show
ed that boys in New York City be
tween 16 and 18 years of age aver
age three jobs a year! One boy
actually held 34 different Jobs.
"We make too little effort to
find out what the boy is best fit
ted to do, and to train him to do
it. The merit badge plan of the

After first making sure that their range will give
the best cooking results and long life, the makers
of the Montag range have devoted their best
efforts to making it a most beautiful piece of
equipment for the modern kitchen.
Most charming colors are used in their porcelain
enamel finish so that the housewife may choose
a finish to blend perfectly into the color scheme
of her kitchen. The lustrous porcelain finish, baked
on under tremendous heat in three coats, makes
for the very minimum of effort in keeping it spot
lessly dean at all times.
In general design, the range has been carefully
developed with emphasis on appearance and con
venience. The modern buffet warming oven does
away with unsanitary, hard -to-clean "catch-all."
Height from floor permits of easy cleaning under
neath the range. The accurate oven thermometer
gives the cook a constant
check on the degree of heat .
and insures best baking re
sults. Fire box and ash pit
have been placed and fin
ished so as to insure great
Montag's high standard of
manufacture the result of
40 years of successful build
ing of western ranges for
western fuels is part of
every Montag range that
goes into the western
housewife's kitchen. .

But many people conceive of their j
service only as a most inspiring
and beautiful method of redeem
ing, in wholesale fashion, those
who through some circumstance
have lost their "grip on life."
Continuing, Captain Ellison de
clared: "The work done by the
Army is not sentimental or hope
less. It is directed by sound com
mon sense. The inspiration comes
mainly from a heart fil!?d with
the divine command to lov9 our
neighbors as ourselves.
"The discouragements met with
are enough to turn a man into a
confirmed grouch and to destroy,
utterly his faith in man. That the
Salvation Army officer continues
to work year after year with un
diminished real speaks much iuoro
powerfully for his devotion than
the stories wa so frequently hear
of his success."

routes south of town, and aaVifV
this territory virtually mapped ,

three more routes in this county
and two in Polk county. Wolf
said Monday that the route sur
vey was working out pretty good,
however there wilt be a few stu
dents on each route who will have
to walk from a half to three
quarters of a mile to the bus line.
It is probable two small bosses,
with a capacity of 25 pupils will .
be used. Other busses will ac
commodate 40 or 50 students.
Forty business and professional
men of Salem will meet for break
fast at the Marion hotel Wednes
day morning and from this meet
ing they will go out to the towns
people of Salem to raise $3575 for
the current expenses budget of the
Salvation Army for the coming
year and an additional $100 to be
placed in the permanent building
fund. Leaders in all phases of
community activities are included
in the committee which will share
in the work.
Captain B. P. Ellison, home
service secretary from Portland
here for the drive, declared Mon
day that in his opinion the Salva
tion Army method of dealing with
social problems is becoming inter
nationally recognized as sound. He
pointed to the United States army
as one of the first organizations In
the world to engage in systematic
methods of hanlding sociological
"Some people think of the Sal
vation Army as hopeless sentimen
talists," declared Captain Ellison.
''We are referred to as people de
voting our lives to the moat worth
