V: Outlook for '34
HUBBARD, Dec. 30. Ask any
boy or girl for the outstanding
event in 1933 and !i or she will
say 'The building or our gym." In
the fall the district purchased
some land from Lena Kester thus
enlarging the Bchool grounds. On
November 13 at a special schoel
meeting the voters decided to
build a gym on this newly acquir
ed land, which was accordingly
done and Is now In the process of
construction and will be complet
ed about February 1.
The gymnasium, which: will le
82 feet long by 80 feet wide by
44 feet high, is being built Just
north of the school house and will
bo equipped at the present time
with a basketball court, Btage, and
dressing rooms. The labor for
the gym is being paid for largely
by CWA funds.
To Beautify Grounds
Between the gym and the. Pa
cific highway two standard dou
ble tennis courts are Demg uum
with CWA funds. Some of the
shrubs had to be moved tempo
rarily but as soon as the building
is completed the Woman's club
"will put in a much larger plant
ing as the money saved for
tennis courts may now be used
The approach to the school
grounds is being improved by til
ing the ditch and filling It. Short
white .posts will be set to keep
cars off of the lawn.
Highway Is Widened
Another improvement for the
city of Hubbard and contingent
territory was the widening of the
Pacific highway and improving the
crossings into the town. Now peo
ple can easily motor to Salem In
30 minutes and to Portland In
45 minutes. Further proof that
prosperity has struck Hubbard is
the fact that a new grocery store
has. been opened with Joe "Hicks
as proprietor. John Yoder h a r
built a new shoe shop next door
to his residence, which he will oc
cupy soon.
- 'In the main, the crops of the
past year; with the exception ot
.berries, have been bumper ones.
The outlook for berries In 1934
seems bright. The hop acreage
has been increased about 20 per
cent . and new hop houses have
been and are being built.
Ungrateful River
May Quit Salem ;
Ought to be Law
Now that Hedda Swart (sounds
like a movie star name) says the
Willamette; river is likely some
time to eat away its banks west
of Salem and incidentally refuse
to honor Salem with its peaceful
. flow, it Is i high time that some
one proposes a law to prevent
. such Ingratitude.
Salem Is .honored by the "Beau
tiful Willamette" (see poem) but
the chances are more people know
how to pronounce Salem than they
do Willamette. However, here is
one for the river: There is onlv
one Willamette river In the Uni
ted States while there -are 27
cities and towns by the name of
Abraham Lincoln and William
Jennings Bryan once lived in an
Illinois town by the name of Sa-

Building and Business Spurt Come up to
Drown Early Blues
SILVERTON, Dec. 30. An
other year rolled up, hesitated
and moved swiftly away to the
haven of goneby years. Father
Time, riding on its crest, beaten
and down a year ago, was able
to smile faintly, albeit still wear
ing a worried expression, as he
neared Silverton midnight Satur
day. In January Silverton's new
mayor, E. W. Garver, took the
oath of office; Silverton Hills
strawberry growers formed a co
operative marketing association:
E. L. McCleary was named sup
erintendent of the city water de
partment; Mayor Garver reduc
ed city salaries.
February brought a dividend
totalling 330,000 from the de
funct First National bank, whose
closing saddened Father Time the
previous year.
Hop Sales Lighten Days
March, with Its bank mora
torium on the second, again
brought a cloud to Silverton
which only darkened when at
the close of the moratorium the
Coolidge and McClaine bank, sil
verton's one fuctlonlng bank, an
nounced a 5 per cent restricted
basis. March. 29 brought a ray
of light when hop sales total
ling nearly $40,000 enriched the
community. Two days later the
city council enacted laws to gov
ern the local sale of "non-intoxicating"
April, a busy month, brought
on the mm me nrsi siorm
warnings - of the approaching
school board hurricane whih was
to last until June 19. This date
Alf O. Nelson, Norris Ames and
I. D. Word en at a school board
meeting asked for lower school
costs. The American Legion spon
sored Silv&rton script to help
ease the financial embarrassment
of local teachers. The 15th of the
month was a gala day with the
high school band, tinder the di
rection of Hal Campbell, retaining
the state championship title in
its - class, and the typing and
bookkeeping departments winning
first and second in the Marion
county bookkeeping and typing
Band Makes Mark
Later in the month the victor

are no Indications that the other
two h.,;h school divisions were
thus treated. On A.jril 26, the
school board announced reduc
tions exceeding $10,000 and on
the 28th C. A. Handy was ap
pointed to sueceeri J. F. Conrad
on the city council.
May ushered In the first ser

men furnished the city nation
wide publicity when they delib
erately took off an extra day
in connection with the Fourth
and went fishing. Eight hundred
persons visited the W. S. Jack
flower gardens one day in July.
On the 21st, voters empowered
the city council to enter into neg
otiations on a proposed sewage
disposal project.
Pick-op Noticeable
The outlook at Silverton was
to improve still further in Aug
ust. On the first day, two new
opticians. Dr. Charles O. Ander
son of Corvalils, and Dr. R. M.
Stewart of McMInnville, opened
offices. The Pomona grange held
an enormous picnic in the city
park with even a larger group
gathering for the Rooseveltlan
picnic on the 27th. It was In the
month of August also that the
Silverton ball club reached its
climax by defeating the colorful
House of David nine from Il
linois. In September, Mr. and Mrs. W.
E. Toney of Vancouver, Wash.,
re-opened the Cozy restaurant,
another of the previous year's
Reductions and fairs were the
order of October days, with one
dark blot the death of Matt
Hage, which a coroner's Jury
said came about by a blow struck
on the head by person or per
sons unknown marring the
autumn sunshine. Both the city
and the school budget commit
tees annoui ced big reductions,
the "former a 16 "per cent de
crease and the latter a reduc
tion from $91,794.63 to $75,
031.21. Community fairs were
held in Union Hill and Silverton
Hills communities, and over 100
boys and girls took part in the
second annual flower and vege
table show sponsored by the PTA.
The. Valley Farmers' Cooperative
association opened a gas and oil
branch station at Silverton. Henry
Aim was elected to the presi
dency of the Silverton chamber
of commerce, and Dad's quartet
suddenly became cognizant of be
ing Granddad's quartet.
CWA Brings Smiles 1
Father Time's smile widened in
November with the beginning of
CWA work. It was hen too that
the Ladd & Bush bank of Salem
agreed to advance up to 75 per
cent on local school warrants.
November 9 an open house was
held in public schools. Silverton
contributed $400 to the Red
Cross. Mrs. 3. F. DeWltt and
daughter Connie re-opened the
Reo restaurant and Urlin Page
of Salem, opened law offices here.
Mrs. Lida Usher was elected
president of Silverton Woman's
Relief corps early In December.
The school board elected T. T.
Leonard to fill the vacancy of
Custer E. Ross. Walter Morgan
was made chairman of the local
chapter of the 4-L.
Father Time will hesitate Sun
day night,, slightly bewildered.

prices In almost all commodity
brackets will add. another $1,
257,000,000. Between December 2, 1933,
and December 3, 1933, the RFC
had advanced $143,529,960 for
emergency relief loans to agri
culture. The PWA Steps In
PWA was the first card in the
new deal to stimulate reemploy
ment. It had an appropriation of
$3,300,000,000 from which to
finance work on federal projects
and advance secured loans for
development of self - liquidating
projects. The latter were in
tended for various divisions of
government or qualified interests
which first invested some of their
own funds in such things as
bridges, tunnels, harbors and
housing projects designed to earn
an income.
As of December 1, approxi
mately 10,000 projects covering
almost every geographical divi
sion of the country were report
ed approved, 9000 of which were
federal in character It was re
ported that the number of per
sons employed on public works
directly financed by PWA total
ed 3,179,528.
Enlisting Civil Works
It was the purpose of CWA
to meet unemployment needs un
til the slower moving non-federal
projects of PWA could ab
sorb the idle workmen.
An appropriation of $400,000,
000 was made from PWA funds
for out-right grants to states,
cities, counties and other political
divisions to pay for work they
normally would finance from tax
receipts. .
Any bona fide project which
would give 30-hour work weeks
at prevailing wages for that type
of employment was to be consid
ered. It was officially estimated on
December 9 that approximately
2,500.000 persons had been giv
en CWA jobs.
NRA Nears First Goal
The end of the year finds NRA
nearing its first goal placing
all industry and trade under gov-ernmen-supervised
collective rule
by codes of fair competition.
A total of 150 industrial
groups have been codified in
cluding the biggest manufactur
ing industries, all the Important
natural resourse industries, vir
tually all wholesale and retail
trade and a huge portion of. the
"service" trades and industries
from banking to dry cleaning.
Between 250 and 300 addition
al industries are in the process
of codification.
Codes vary according to the
nature of the industry but pres
cribed set regulations for all
units of the same Industry. That
Is to prevent cut - throat com
petition among business of the
same nature.
All require that labor condi
tions be controlled for reem
ployment and higher wage pur
chasing power. The latter, it is
said, has been increased more
than 20 per cent.
CCC A Job-Maker f
More than 300,000 men have
been established in 1600 camps
for the development of 600,000,
