It is a residential hall lor men or mnerent races wno are ivprsitv. "The tiurDOse is to promote inter racial and international fraternity through residence in the Jxme. The students residing in the home share the living YTwmu th sam? as in a club Mr. WilHam Hall, seniors ment, arje heading the organization.; During the summer they undertook the task of obtaining a suitable home and see imr that it was properly furnished. A number of Salem peo ple assisted in getting the project started. ! It has been a common with the foreign students in our colleges ana universities that they get little consideration in the program of social activities at" the school, rarely get to see: the inside of an American home; and so return to their home countries with an altogether false picture of American home life or no picture at all The writer can recall visiting the reading room ot the state college library on Friday or Saturday Bights and seeing the place almost deserted save for a small croup chiefly of foreign students. The "native 'whites' were out at fraternity dances, parties, or other! social functions. The foreign students were without social diversions. - Many of these students come from very good homes. , Some of them are of families of importance in their own countries. . When they return, with the added equipment of collage education and the experience of foreign residence, " they will become persons of influence in their home lands. It i is highly important to us and to them that their attitudes to ward us be kept favorablethat they carry back to their home lands a friendly feeling toward this country and its people. In wnrH whose mo viner forces are still those of passion and prejudice we need to cultivate understanamg ana twerauon. - . f So this International House, which is the fifth of its type on the American campus, undertakes to provide a real American home for those who reside there. In the group the following races are represented: Filipino, Japanese, Chinese, Amerind, Afro-American, and American. Quite a mixture indeed; but as long 113 these separate races are trying to live on the same planet, do business with one another, why should they not-learn to know j one another in terms of social cul ture? - ! v ! : '' ' , , May we a (13 another thought, and that is that .the people of Salem should pay some attention to this group. Invite some of them to your home for dinner or an evening. You will find the-experience as stimulating to you as it is reveal ing to them. When this writer was in college there was a foung Japanese boy in his class. He earned his way through college by working in the home of a wealthy family. He was intelligent and (affable, j He was; not treated in the college community as a servant. In fact as - he was the only real "f oreigner"Jthere he received more than usual consideration. He won numerous forensic contests, nearly; always pitted against the writer's closest friend. Later he went to Har vard for graduate work.k-ow he is one of the leaders in the business and political life of Japan. What is his attitude to ward this country where he received his education?- one of the greatest friendliness. And we havent the slightest doubt ;hat the United States owes to him and to many other stu dents like him who received education and decent treatment fo'this country, obligation for the increasing friendliness in the relations between this country and Japan. You proud American citizen as you brush past a brown youth on the street, be not. discourteous. The lad may be governor of a Chinese province some day, or a foreign min ister of Japan, or a leader in the Philippines! h Go Slow on New Roads THEt provinces are being heard fronu Communities over the state intent on getting completed certain highway projects which have long been dear to their ; heart, are pro testing the plan to siphon millions out of the highway funds of the state for building a new speedway to the beach resorts from Portland. Bend and Klamath Falls led the protest. Now Medford expresses its fear that the much ballyhooed ' road to the sea will handicap and , delay road work in other .districts . . ' . ; ;! ' : At Clatskanie the Lower Columbia Associated chambers of commerce met and urged the pressing need of, widening, straightening and otherwise improving, the lower Columbia river highway. As the Astorian-Budget, which ia sympathe tic toward the ultimate building of the new road, remarks : ""There Is danger, with all this clamor and hullabaloo over short-cut routes from Pqrtland to the sea,, that: other established road projects throughout the state will be shunted to one side to give precedence to ohe or more new . projects far which sectional movements have developed. ' "It is time that other parts of the state find their voice and' urge their own claims for consideration.; particularly when many of these claims are of long standing and have a definite priority. At least expressions from other parts of the state would serve to counter the effort being made to stampede the highway commission into a hasty decision up on the matter ot the short-cut roads." : ' I1 '! - And the Bend Bulletin, whose editor served as a very capable member of the highway commission, comments in part as follows : I I ; j j ' Central and eastern Oregon have at least wakened to the fact that the immediate fconstructton of a short read from, -Portland to the sea will make Inroads on the state highway fund to such an extent that the long-awaited completion of their portions ot the state system will be etUX further de layed. Resolutions stating the case emanating from JLake vlew and indorsed by the Bend chamber have gone to the Highway commission, it is expected that the indorsement of other eastern Oregon communities will be received.

Dears It sU interest- ins to note that with ittft except tion of foods derired from grains, practically all the acid' foods were originally derired in part at least from alkaline ash vegetable life as it passed through -the ani -mal body and became (meat, fat. batter, or eggs for consumption by the " human. The i facts of course are acid - in effect, only when they ? are incompletely burned in the body. Carbohydrate serves as th fire ia which fats burn. Ther should be! sufficient to burn the fata. ; .rW ! Alkalines Enumerated Briefly the so-called I alkaline ash foods are, vegetables, .; nuts. milk and all fruits with the ex ception of prunes, plums, and cranberries which are only slight ly acid. Some of the foods which contain appreciable amounts or alkaline j ash are ' white ' beans. Ham beans, raisins, almonds, ear- rots, beets, peas, potatoes, let tuce, celery, milk and citrus fruits. These foods of course have other advantages besides be ing alkaline. Many of them con tain Important minerals i auch as Iron, calcium; and vitamins. well as some of the primary pro teins which help in the repair of the body. H An over consumption of alka line foodj will produce disagree able symptoms much. as: will the overconsumption of acid foods. As a matter, of fact, however,1 it is rather rare to find a person suffering from over ingestion ot alkaline foods while the symp toms of "acidosis" are very com mon. Although acid foods are more, expensive as a rule, 1 they are consumed In large Quantities because they are palatable, they are mere widely advertised, and since the advent of refrigeration because they have been: easily transported to great centers of population. ! Balanced Diet Explained To avoid the damages to heart, blood vessels and kidneys Which may follow prolonged over : in gestion of acid foods, such: as bread and meat, it is always wise to see that this bread and meat diet is properly balanced with some of the alkaline ash .foods such as fruits, vegetables and milk. Cereal acid in the morning should be combined with fruit and milk. Heat acid and potatoes and vegetables is a good combin ation.. Bread and milk, and bread. butter and Jelly are good. ; An easy way to work out a bal anced diet is to see that the acid and 'alkaline foods are properly proportioned in t'he meals throughout the day.; !

And the one next year, the 78th, win be bigger and better. I'm . Many of the "pioneer exhibitors deserve special mention, along with the outstanding new comers. Among the old time herds in the first stock: barn on the right, is that of William Biahop of Chlm- acum. Wash. He has been show ing Holstein-Friesians for around SO years; never misses an Oregon state, Washington state or Pacific International fair. la - This time he is carrying away five first and 10 second prizes, be sides the grand championship on Koostria Goliah Paul, three year old bull of the Hollywood strain. This out of the herd of 12 show animals, that were admired by every visitor who was at the stock barns this year. V Win. Bishop himself, was pres ent . until Wednesday evening, when he was obliged to return home. His sons, Wm. Bishop Jr., and Stephen Hall Bishop, now as sociated with their father, remain. There is a daughter Kathleen,, at home. Wm. Bishop Jr. has been a student of the Washington State college at Pullman. "Is Chimacum is a town of about 300 on the Olympic peninsula 40 miles from Seattle. The Bishops have about 700 acres of land, and their herd of pure bred Holstelns runs to 125 ty- 150. They have never had anything but purebreds, importing their first animals when there were few ot their kind in this section. Their milking herd has 85 animals. They, have used milking machines the past five years. The milk is first grade and . is marketed In Port Townsend; retailed to the high class trade through a wholesale connection. The senior j William Bishop is krfown and respected for his en terprise, vision and honesty In old time breeding circles through out the country. His sons are now carrying the working oars of the business and are keeping up the good reputation of the family name. Carey F. Martin, the Salem at torney, did not attend tne 1S7U state fair. .But be was born Octo ber . IS 70. while tho fait-or that year was being held. His mother was very ill after his birtn. his father, Rev. I Thomas M. Martin, who was then pastor of the" First Baptist church of Salem, found that the noise of the rigs lumber ing over the Tough road in front fof their "loose, to and from the fair, affected her s h a 1 1 e red nerves. So he secured a lot of tan bark from a tannery then con ducted in Salem, either the one on Norta Mill creek near North High street or the one on that creek near : where Center street crosses it at Hth street. He had the tanr bark hauled and dumped onto the street in front of the house and . . . 1 arter tnai mere was iesa uoiw, j and the . mother recovered her i strength the eooaer-for the relief I thus afforded. .

All Oregon came to the -state fair than; and most of It Camped in the groves; ia the present camp ground, which was then extended away to the north, including the space now taken up by the stock barns. With' thflCtmp fires at night, that camp ground In state fair time was a -sight to behold. The Bits man has a description of the picture, written by Ralph C. Qeer In 1876, which will appear in this column later. j u : Mr. Martin, when he went to live in the house on Liberty street opposite the First Baptist church, found no shade trees there. With the help of some members of his church, he went down 1 the river and grubbed up some fine young maple trees and brought them and set them out along the curb. Those maple trees, now . nearly 70 years old, are splendid specimens of our native beautiful; and um brageous species ot the; botanical family of Acer. : j . r s I The railroad was Just being fin ished from East Portland to as far as Salem when Carey Martin was born so the state alr of that year did not get much benefit in relieving transportation condi tions. ; In the years thereafter, the railroad carried the bulk of the crowds from Salem to I the fair grounds. ( , Every year, they ran 'a special , train, making frequent trips.' be tween the fair grounds and the freight depot at Commercial and Trade streets. Then street cars came, and all but monopolized that business, and the special fair grounds train soon became a memory. '.'':'' ' - "e Every observing visitor with a vision can tell you of many Im provements that might be made, at the fair grounds. " But every single building on the . grounds is new, or was built after 1870; la fact, after 1884s With one exception. The exception is the' restaurant building lately occupied by Mrs. Ohnstead. That was the Aurora restaurant build ing, constructed,, by the colony people la the late sixties. It stood facing, the west a little j distance to the northeast originally, and there was a brick bakery in the rear then. - ! 1 , The lumber and fixtures came front the colony mills and shops at Aarora. The building has- not been ' rreatly altered In all the? T-eara. Wh'en the colony4 was dissolved,., after the death of its founder,; Dr. William Keil. the building became the property of the fairi society, a nd. afterward j of tUe state.

The Sabbaths (seven of them) was given to the children of Israel Lev. 23rd chap ter and was never given to the Gentiles Rom. 2:14 as the nations were never given the law. The last ' time the word Sabbath is spoken of in the Bible is Acts 18-4 which is addressed to Jews and proselytej . with the exception of Colossians 2-11 which states very clear that no man should Judge us as to what we eat or drink or in respect to holy day or sabbath days. .
