Holman and Meier were both
wroth about this newest nubile at

whether the Bullfrogs, Holman,

for the nomination or whether
they will be content to hold their
two-to-one vote on the board of
control. No successor to Hoss has
been widely talked although Jerry

Composition is Published
Here; Dentist one of
Dr. H. C Epley of Salem ha
just published a ong "Dream
Memories, the word and music
of which are of his own composi
tion. Dr. Epley, veteran Salem
dentist, has made music hi avo
cation. For many years he has
conducted choirs and choruses,
keeping up a boy' chom here
tor many years.
Two year ago he composed and
published a song, "Oregon Queen
ot the West" which was a tribute
in song to the state of Oregon.
The new song 1 rich In senti
ment, reminiscent of some of the
production ot Carrie Jacobs
Bond. The harmony was arranged
by Miss Ruth Bedford, well
known Salem pianist.
The following are the first verse
and ehorus ot "Dream Memor
ies": "Sitting alone by the fireside
Watching the embers glow
Memories turning back again
To day of long ago;
I see your fair face in my dream
ing Just as I saw it that day,
Dreaming, Just dreaming
Thinking of you;
Dreaming, only dreaming.
Lonesome and blue;
Year have gone by,
I wonder why
Fate has deprive J me of you.
Oh, I'm dreaming, day dreaming
Dreaming and longing for you."
The song was printed at The
Statesman plant, the cover being
done In two colors. The design ot
the cover page Is unusually at
tractive. Before an open fire sit
a man (V. P. McNamara).
Through the glow of tbe fire ap
pears the face of a woman, the
face of the singer' dreams.

where no physical inspection Is

facts were pointed out yesterday

night that appearance of C grade
milk nad made no difference in
their business, but predicted that
it was early to say whether the
matter "would come to a stage
where they would put an Infer

or whether price war would re

that the C grade offerings wore
In striking contrast to demand
of distributors last July. At that
time, when milk troubles were
coming to a head here, distribut
ors declared they could sell only
B grade milk, and demanded that
producers equip their plants to
produce the high grade. This pro
ducers did. which meant full sup
port of the elty ordinance for
high grade milk.
"Now, 1 it asking too much
that these same distributors pro
tect us?" thi dairyman asked.
