i " ; Our Policy Toward Russia
"It is not Russia's form ot goveraeent that we abject to. but
the fact that that country la an outlaw nation which refnaea J
to recognise Its jast debts and refuses te come into the com
munity of naUons for the sole purpos at running Its own ar
; fairs, bat Insist on coming In with th purpose of roaaiat the
affairs of every other cTtllsed -nation on -earth. Corraiiis
G alette-Times .' '.! -'. '
If "that b the only bar, Russia long ago offered to ne
gotiate with the United States respecting this foreign debt.
Whether she would now or not; is a question, because Russia
has gotten along: all these years without recognition and may
. prefer to go unrecognized than to assume all or a portion of
the pre-bolshevik debt-, ;. v i !
This country can't be too nasty nice about 'repudiating
debts." The southern states repudiated the debts of the carpet-bag
regime; and there have been other states which re
pudiated portions of their debts. Oregon, irrigation districts
welched on their bonds, whether you call it repudiation or
just going broke. "! -"j. - k
. We have long felt that the United States adopted a
wrong policy toward Russia during the Wilson administra
tion. We had no busmess'sending our soldiers there to fight
and die in' a war against a friendly country, whose past ser
vice to this country at critical moments in our history had
been extremely valuable. Instead of kicking the bolsheviks
in the face like Secretary Hughes did, j by brusquely refus
ing to listen to them, this country should have attempted
by negotiation to find a basis for recognition. . . ; ,
"National policy, amity of nations, j needs of commerce,
all are reasons why this country should refuse to continue
branding Russia as an -Ishmael among the nations. Even
though, as the Gazette-Times indicates, Russia has no "gov
ernment of the people, by the people, and for the people
well, neither has Italy, nof did pre-war ; Russia whose Tsars
we regularly did business with. ' i r ,
Secretary Stimson says he is proceeding,' to make a
study of the Russian question and our relations with that
country. If he applies the same rules he has recently an
nounced with respect to South America it ought to be pos
sible to come to some understanding with Russia under
which normal relations could be resumed with her.

Jt commission, confirming predictions made long ago
that he would be first to be displaced on that body. There
may be some backfire to the dismissal on the grounds .of
playing politics with the commission; but no such furore
will be created as there was when Judge Sawyer of Bend
was dismissed by Gov. NorWlad. The situation is not great
ly different so far as the facts go; but the public mind was
such when Norblad fired Sawyer who was a competent and
hard-working commissioner, it was like a spark to a powder
keg, and the explosion blew Norblad clear out of the guber
natorial picture which was re-opened after the death of Jo
seph. Now the public expects Meier to fire right and left,
so no particular reaction will be felt. lT In fact if he just
turns the state house inside out, he will be doing precisely

It was only 25 years, ago that
school medical inspection was or
gan Ued lor something mora than
eases. In Now
Tork City la
10 tha first
made of school
children to de
tect the pres
ence of - any
physical d ,e
f acta. More re
cently the ten
dency has been
health . educa
te, c c. ur tion rather
than correction ,of already-existing
defects. '.. ; -
As stated " tha examination ot
children in the school' baa for -its
object detection of nhyslcai de
fects. To be of any value it must
not be a hasty or cursory one yet
attar a little, training ehooI phy
sicians can examine Quito a num
ber of children la a comparative
ly abort time. It is not -necessary
to have every; ailment or defect
described minutely for the. reason
that it la not within tho province
of the school physician to euro
defects. Whan found any defect
is corrected by the family physi
cian or dentist.
' Examinations to be of any val
ue should be done with the parent-
present or tha parent ahonld
be informed ot the presence of
any abnormality. Careless par
ents who pay no attention to phy
sical def ecta in their children es
pecially when . Informed ' of the
doctor's findings detract greatly
from tho vain of, work done,
i A good ' health service in the
school has another - function;
namely, control and -prevention
of contagious diseases. ' Exclusion
of all pupils with any acute in
fectious disease is imperative to
prevent . spreading. ' It has been
proved too that epidemics are
more easily ' controUed by not
elosinsr a school during: the ep
idemic but more rigid inspection
of the schools. Suspects are then
exemaea ana isolated ty tne pro
per health authorities. Eradica
tion of more - mildly Infectious
diseases as Impetigo, itch, - pink
eye, etc., is ot concern to the
nurse or doctor. Many of these
can remain in school if there is
only a mild infection present and
th child is. properly .. treated. .
One ot the ' .most : important
functions of the school doctor
and school nurse is to . teach
health. Of later years the teach
er baa been drafted in carrying
on this type of teaching. It can
be taught in history, geography, -writing,
physiology, In art work
and in many other means. Prop
er diets can be suggested, the
value of cleaning the. teeth.
proper hours, of sleep and recre
ation, and fresh air are all top
ics which the teacher can make
Interesting as well as valuable.
All these things help to teach the
child the value of good Ijealth
ana maxe mem neaithier men
and women later In life.
With all the money- spent on
education in this modern age It
behooves each parent to aid in
educating the . child to a point
where he will have a sound body
as well as a sound mlad. r . ' .

her in a steady, intent way. They
said nothing. She went on, em

Walter muttered, "Oh, shut
up," and sat with his chin In his
hands. After a time he asked Bim
what she knew. , . :
She was well aware ' what he
meant and did not hesitate She
told about tho tiro tracks la the
sand behind Eagle's Nest and
about tho washed car In tho Trent
garage with sand under the pad
on the running board. And in the
end she told about the laundry

Bim could say nothing more
Sh left them and went into the
house and to bed, feeling lonely
and forlorn and filled with re
morse. : For now Bob and Mllll
cent would be dragged into the
murder, those two babes in the
woods, to fight as best they could.
This, at least, is what would
bappea unless her plan the plan
that had flashed into Blm's mind
this afternoon when she saw Wil
liam and Jane on the dance floor
at tho Novel City Inn succeeded.
She must, she told herself desper
ately, make It succeed. She must
work harder than ever she had
worked before to make- up for her
part t this threatened Injustice.
She did not for one Instant be
lieve that Bob Trent had anything
to do with the shooting of the
Baroness von Wiese. She would
not let herself believe it. Ajr for
the attack on Jane that was ab
surd, . . - ...
Jane was part of a triangle and
this always meant - trouble. Imo
gene, feeling quite sure that her
action would not be detected In
the general confusion -which held
sway on Pino Hill, - might have
been goaded to a jealous rage
and attempted to remove Jane
front the reach of WilUam Dole.
Or William himself might have
thought it to his advantage to rid
himself of at least one of the wo
men who seemed to pursue him.
This last, however appeared un
likely, tor his preference was all
for Jane Insofar as Bint could
judge. :- .
.In the morning Bim went to the
station house after . spending a
couple of hours at the Banner of
fice, she learned there that a gun
bad. been found In the shrubbery
near the path where Jane had fal
len last night a -gun with no
fingermarks upon it.
Also she learned . that the
search of William Dolets past bad
yielded results. Tho man had not
been idle and put to It for funds
when he came to Klhgcliffe as Em
Hardy's butler, but he had left a
part in a production which even
then waa ra rehearsal.. -A
Stoae WaJl -
Furthermore, It had been estab
lished that prior to his disappear
ance from Broadway, a few years
back, he had been the center or a
white lights scandal . in which the
feminine, figure happened to be
none other than the woman who
later become- the Baroness von
Wleset - ' ,
They had questioned William
' . 1
to his story. Not aggressively.
but In a dogged way. And Em
Hardy had reiterated her declara
tion that William always was
within sight on the night of the
murder;, at least, she insisted, it
would, have been impossible for
him to have supped out as far as
the summer house In the garden
and back again, at any time from
12 o'clock on.- She was positive
about this for she was giving the
man orders as the clock struck
; "What are you going to dd?
Bim. asked Walter eagerly.
. His jaw set and he looked over
her head as he had done so often
of late. "What can I do? Obey
orders, I suppose. They'll never
make a charge stand up you un
derstand that, Bim? It's a dam
nable thing . . ."' :
"Walter.", she said suddenly,
"I've got to tell you this, that I'm
on the track of something. - Can't
explain . it yet maybe it won't
turn out but I'm going to try.
Maybe I'll come through In time.
Pleaie have a little faith in me,
"I why, things aren't what I
you think, my dear: I'm not at
all what you think! Please, Wal
ter" I -. , ; , ' ' -
. He gave her a long look and
put out: his hand.- Once again
they might have come together,
smoothed over their difficulties.
But a horn sounded outside and
then Carey's voice called down the
corridor and Walter drew back
into himself. , t
Carl Carey Insisted upon tak
ing Bim into the Maple Leaf tea
room for Sunday dinner. She
tried to meet his rushing high
spirits with gaiety, she tried to
recapture .. the .. excitement, the
heady sense of adventure ho had
aroused in her a long time ago.
Only It wasn't a long time ago
Just a few-, days she had known
him, really. Things had moved
quickly this t past reek; so very
much had happened that life nev
er would took the same to her"
again. Besides, Carl was, in the

The reader who has followed
the above will note that there are
now: 27 city carriers. 2S of them
covering tho-clty within ; the cor
porate limits, and one serving
West Salem. There are nine rural-
carriers, and they take their
mall to the people along. S 4 6. 6
miles ot road surrounding Salem ;
and gather up their mail matter.
The city free delivery was
started In on July 1, 1887, with
two. carriers, Ben Taylor and
George Hatch. Some growth in
The rural free delivery system ;
for the Salem postoffice was es-'
tablished in time to start service
April 1, 1901. There has been a
great' extension o.tbe territory
covered since then,
Already there are four men on
the retired list among the former:
employees ot the Salem postof
fice, who have been drawing pen
sions and will receive these hon
orariums to the end of their'
mortal days, in the shape of Un
cle Sam's checks at the rate of
around 8100 a month.
Charles Brasher, rural carrier,
will be eligible to join that list in
about two years, and, within the
next five or six years Arthur
Welch and Frank Baker, city
carriers, and James A. Reming
ton, rural carrier, and EsteIIeE.
Kaylor, in charge ot the postal
savings, bank work, will . hare
earned the places in that charm
ed circle. The reader will note
that Miss Kaylor Is the only wom
an employee on tbe whole, forre
of. 80 people. v ' V
. Space is not available to give
the increase that has taken place
In the business ot the Salem post-'
office. It - has made a greater
Showing of growth than that of
the force of employes in the 47
years dating back to tbe early
part of 1884. - f
' ' W m V
There is only room to add that
the 80 people -.making up thU
force will compare favorably in
every way with a like number In
such employment In the United
States, ;t or any . other country.
Without exception, they are hard
working, honest, efficient and
devoted to the service which they
honor.. -i '
COW, WIFE DIMS
FOODS THAT USED
' TO MAKE HER ILL
-For over five years it seemed like
evervthing my wife enjoyed eating
would disaffree with her.l sa"9 L..
Murray, 706 State Ave.. Kansas City,
Kansas. "She would suiter from indi
gestion until the gas would crowd
Eer heart. , : i -'
"We tried. a lot of thincs for her
trouble, some of which relieved the
gas . temporarily but upset her
stomach. She did not get any real
help until a friend persuaded me to
get her some Pane's Dia pepsin. Now
he eats anything fried things,
onions, pastry: foods that used to
make, her ill. If she feels the least
discomfort a tablet or two of Pape's
Diapcpsin makes her comfortable
in a minute." . i . .
When thousands like Mr. Murray
are coming right out in public to
praise Pape's Diapcpsin, there seems
no reason to doubt that it does what
is claimed for it to help people who
suffer from acid-dyspepsia, and the
heartburn, gas, nausea, belching,
. headaches, dizziness, etc, caused by
this common ailment, But those who
wish further proof before buying
may easily have it, The makers agree
to send enyone a trial package
absolutely FREE. Just write Tape i
Diapcpsin." Wheeling. W. Va.
