a. Native Chinese music dates back
as far as 2600 B. C. It is not the
loud, blatant noise we hear in sea
port towns, where, the musicians
are trying to copy the music of
the foreigners In their midst, but
the musical calls ot the native
peddlers and coolies In the inter
ior, typify the importance of mu
sic Jn the Chinese life.
Music is an Important "element
in ,tle life of the Chinese. If a
new shop is opened, an orchestra
will be engaged. Wedding proces
sions, dressed in red, play music
to typify their moods and emo
tions. Members present for the meet

Under the recently passed Ore
gon trust law the trust depart

legislation makes it possible to re
turn all .servicing ot these Salem

however, continue to be dictated
by the Investment committee of
the Security Savings and TroSt
company from its head office in
Portland, thus giving our Salem
trust customers the advantage of
the same service rendered all
trust customers of this institution."

Milk Board Here
A request that the central of
fice of the Oregon milk commis

county farm debt adjustment
The appointments, recommend
ed by the Oregon agricultural ad
visory council, were made at the

it was clearly the intention of
congress that the FCA should not

creditors to Itself, but to make
possible a scale down ot debt
whehe necessary in order that the
farmer might ultimately work out
ot his financial difficulties. In ac
cordance with the law and the
intent of congress, the land banks
require that all of the debts of
the farmer be compromised with
