Representative John Beckman
opened -debate on the Knox plan,
reviewing the bill step by - step
and declaring it offered the best
alternative between prohibition
and saloon days. He declared a
similar system had . worked well
in-other countries. "If the- state
ever wishes to try this plan, now
is the time; once private inter
ests are embarked in liquor's sale
it will be impossible," he con
cluded. Ban on AdTertising

Johnson urged that the advertise

For Private Sale
Nevertheless Representative Hil
ton took the floor to speak for
nearly 30 minutes against the bill,
taking it up section by section and
protesting against its features.
Hilton opposed state operation of
business, held the (400,000 ap
propriation unwarranted, contend
ed the possibility for; graft was
large, and held a private license
system was infinitely better.
Representative Dean Walker
made a careful analysis of the bill
and contended it was a practical,
definite objective way of handling
a problem which was immediately
before the state. He dwelt at
length on the methods considered
by the alcoholic committee for fi
nancing the liquor stores and con
tended the method of borrowing
and of appropriation best.
Walker said the committee had
made its determination on policies

of liquor stores and opposed res

the Knox -control plan fitted well

posal because it would assure

He added that he supported It be

he would support the measure. , .
Against the bill was Represen
tative Herbert Gordon of Multno

raise the revenue estimated and
that the state should net appro

respects and averred it would be
better to send It back to commit

he was wlllinr to lay aside his
prejudices and support the meas
ure as the best immediate means
ot securing employment funds.
Representative John Hall swung
into a last-minute attack on the

no business selling liquor, that It

With plans for construction of 6,000 new airports throughout the nation
included in the Public Works re-employment program, Eugene VidaL
director of aeronautics at the Department of Commerce, recently an
nounced a plan, the goal of which is production of 10,000 low-priced air-
lanes by next Spring to make use of the new airports. To this end he
as sent questionnaires to 34,000 flying enthusiasts in an effort to deter
mine the extent of the market for planes to cost 3700 or less. The result
of this survey will be made available to the aviation industry, and manu
facturers, assured of a market for their product, can turn out the low
priced craft The present so-called "flivver plane" sells for less than
$2,000. but mass production would probably crreatlv lower its cost.

According to the Salem city
attorney if the home rule pro
vision remains in force, Salem is
dry, but if not the state is em
powered to come here any time
under the Knox bill, and estab
lish liquor stores.. In 1910 the
home rule charter was written
into the state constitution. In
1914 and 1916 dry amendments
were passed, which in the belief
of some attorneys, eliminated the
home rule clause. Last year, how
ever, the dry amendments were
repealed without any provisions
being made for either the re
enactment or continued abolition
of the home rule bill.

Symptoms of whooping cough
and mild cases of scarlet fever,
especial!y in the McKinley school
district, were uncovered yesterday
by. Dr. Vernon A. Douglas of the
county health bureau.
The number of cases of coughs,
while not exactly typical of
whooping cough, have been dis
covered in the south section of the
city and require th careful
watching of parents, Dr. Douglas
warned yesterday. Ordinary
whooping cough starts with a cold
for about two weeks and then
coughing which moves into the
whooping stage for sometimes
several weeks. The symptoms have
been noticed In pre-school age
children as welt as children or
school age. Dr. Douglas reported.
There is one case of scarlet fev
er in quarantine but several child
ren who have applied for read
mission to school show signs of
having had mild cases- of scarlet
fever, he said. There is an in
crease of scarlet fever in Portland
and Scio and several cases have
been reported in state institutions"
here. The scarlet lever symptoms
start with a sore throat for two
days, then a temperature and rash
breaks out, Dr. Douglas said.
'Joseph Dam9 New
The new Bonneville project
would be named the "JosepH
dam," under the provisions of a
memorial Introduced by Senator
Brown of Marion county Friday.
Brown explained that George W.
Joseph, former state senator and
republican nominee for governor
at the time of his death, probab
ly has done more to promote pow
er development in -Oregon than
any other person. He said it was
appropriate that the Bonneville
project should be named in honor
of Mr. Joseph.

DEAD LETTERS TIT
Delay in Sending to S. F.

By New Ruling
.. Have you ever , mailed an im

any sort? , Don't blush; , you're
not the only one. Not -long ago,
for instance, a Salem man, tucked
some Important papers into an
envelope, pasted thereon airmail
and special delivery stamps, car
ried it to the postoffice that It
might catch the first train out
and forgot it, assured that 1 1
would reach its destination on
But the envelope bore neither
the address of sender nor would-
be recipient. It went to the dead-
letter office in San Francisco
where It was opened, its contents
revealing the source and destina
tion, and eventually sent on its
way. A postal ruling forbade lo
cal authorities from opening the
envelope to determine the neces
sary facts and so a number o f
nours were Jost in wnat may nave
been a transaction in which min
utes were important.
This weekend marks the end ot
that postal ruling, at least for a
time. Local officials will here
after take care of "dead" mail,
using all the material at hand to
be sure that the letter or parcel
is delivered to th3 proper person
or concern. Between 25 and 30
