.rat Hurley, and His Detractors
WE think more of Pat Hurley, secretary of war, than we
did. He came into a hostile atmosphere at the legion
convention, came riot plannine or-intendinor to sneak, and
when he was provoked to speak in reply to the venomous and
misleading remarks of Floyd Gibbons, Hearst correspond
ent, he did so with a directness, a forcefulness and a convic
tion which won applause before he was far along with his
fTM Tb Li 1 . m ' ; .
,ine i-omana xNews-ieiegram, now busy merchandis
ing journalistic poison, chose the day! of his appearance in
the city to publish a lengthy personal attack on Hurley in
connection with the discharge of Drew Pearson from the
staff of the Baltimore Sun because Pearson proved to be
one of the authors of a second edition of the "Merry-Go-Round"
series which supposedly mirrors the dirt of Wash
ington politics. The particular subject of the last book is
Secretary Hurley. So when Pearson was fired the anti-ad-mihistration
organs proceeded to abuse Hurley and the Bal
timore Sun over Pearson's discharge.;
No one who knows the character iof the Baltimore Sun
would think for a moment that it Would fire a reporter
merely for offending anyone in the Hoover administration.
The Stfn is as independent a newspaper as there is in the
sountry, one of the independents tht seem conspicuously
anti-republLv.n. Hurley, if he did ask If or Pearson's dismis
sal, would get no consideration from the Sun.
The more probable cause for Pearson's discharge is that
when a newspaper hires a man as reporter it does not want a
man who will abuse his position by getting connected with
noisome publications, with scandal books of one kind or an
other. A man and a newspaper are known by the company
they keep ; and a paper like the Sun is run as a newspaper
and wants no connection with a garbage heap.

th act of a reporter in using the credentials ot a newspaper to

primary, purpose of writing anonymous books of a more or

In the United States than Baltimore Sun. It is famed far and wide

Frank Kent, J. Fred Essary and ether Baltimore Snn men hit as
hard in their writings as any newspapermen of the land, but
they stand behind their stuff in full candor and enjoy the respect
of officialdom. j

mHE virtue of the old copybook malxim about persistence
J. ' i order to attain success, is exemplified in the victory
of the Salem Drum corps at the national convention of the
legion. This drum corps has been working for years to get
this coveted honor. It has won repeatedly in state contests,

The band appeared in Louisville, in San Antonio, in Detroit.
Now it gained double honors at Portland. It won the first
place as a corps, and its drum major, Charles Whittemore,
won first for drum majors. The dual victory created great
rejoicing in Salem and over the department of Oregon, for
the Salem drum corps has always been popular in the state.
I The victory of the splendid trio of the American Legion
Auxiliary put another bright star in Salem's crown.
The turn-out in honor of the returning champions
Thursday night was not only a deserved tribute, it was a
spontaneous one. The people took 'real delight in honoring
the victors. They were a tired outfit, to be sure, after days
and nights of strenuous performance; but they did thrill to
the welcome given by the old home town.
! The distinction means a lot to Salem in the way of fine
advertising all over the country. The Corps will be in great
demand for many public occasions. The city is delighted to
share the fame which their success brings to the performers
and the post which' has sponsored them through the years
THOSE who went to Portland to find out just what a god
awful show the American Legion convention was came
home disappointed. The streets around the principal hotels
were not littered with hotel furniture and busted glassware!
The crowds were not maudlin. All th& plate glass insurance
taken out for the week was returned "unused." Not that
there was no drinking or such. There j was; but the' conven

A DOZEN years ago little was
known about vitamins.
,, The average person had
seldom heard the word. Today the
term is familiar to everybody.

the public mind
has become con
fused, and in
there has been
a n unjustified
the so - called
"vitamin e x -tracts,"
tratea" And "vitamin pills."
I am sorry to say that the vita
min fad has encouraged a lot of
quackery. Clever advertising has
taken much hard-earned money
from unsuspecting vitamin hunters.
It is not necessary to buy vita
min extracts or to swallow vita
min pills. If you will eat a well
balanced diet, which includes vege
tables, fruits, salads and milk, you
will get all the vitamins your high
est welfare demands.
Tke Various Vitamins
We hear much talk about vitamin
A. This is supposed to give pro
tection against infections, particu
larly of the mucous membranes of
the eyes, intestinal tract and up
per respiratory tract. This vita
min is found in butter, cream, egg
yolk, carrots, spinach, fish, salads,
cream cheese and cod-liver oil.
"Ben-ben" is the name of a dis
ease caused by the lack of vitamin
B. We rarely hear of the disease
nowadays, for most diets contain
the protecting vitamin. It is found
in whole grain cereals, asparagus,
tomatoes, beans, leafy vegetables
Scurvy is a nutritional disease
which was common in the days of
sailing vessels and long sea voy
ages. But in a mild form it is
caused whenever there is a lack io
the diet of fresh fruits and vege
tables, such as oranges, lemons, to
matoes, grapefruit, lettuce and
cabbage. These foods contain vita
min Cy called the "anti-scorbutic"
vitamin because it prevents scurvy.
Rickets is another vitamin defi
ciency disease caused by a lack of
vitamin D in the. diet. This vita
min is found in egg-yolk and cod
liver oiL In addition to preventing
and curing rickets, it is believed to
aid in the development of bones
The Well-Balaaceo! Diet
"Pellagra," a disease which baf
fled the medical profession for
many years, is now traced to a
lack of vitamin G, known as the
"anti-pellagra, vitamin.". It is found
in milk, spinach, bananas, leafy
vegetables and yeast. "Vitamin G
and vitamin B combined are thought
to stimulate appetite and growth.
Other vitamins are being studied
by research workers.
It is not necessary to worry
about any of the vitamins. ' If you
include in your diet liberal amounts
ot the foods I have mentioned,
which are known to contain vita
