The wind of spring; Is joyous, as
pleasantly It floats; it never does an-
noy us with ghastly wailing note. It
seems to bring a rumof of blue and
crystal sens, and with buoyant humor
It swishes through the trees. We never
heat' It screaming, as though with
stomach ache: it helps us in our dream
itig, and soothes us when we wake. The
Sizzltns wind of summer blows morals
galley west; the clergyman and plumb
er denounco it, with the rest. Tumul
tuous and torrid, it goes its burning
way, and mnlces us think up horrid and
beastly things to say. The woor.y wind
of winter has little helpful use; evan
gelist and printer berate it like the
uuce. It numbs our nerves and senses
an from the north it skids; it adds
to our expenses ,and wakes us soak
our lids. But oh, the wind of autumn!
It seems to sigh, iny friends, of woe
that has not bottom, of pain that never
ends. It wails around my cottage,
what time the daylight dies, when I
am tired of swattage, and chasing of
the flies. Now hastily, now slowly, it
vhimpevs' overhead; there nothing so
unholy, Sci weird, no full of dread. It
sighs, in haunted crannies, of long
dead men and maids, of old forgotton
grannies, who walked the earth as

To the Editor: The people of Salem
have been criticising the police of Sa
lcin because they don't make more
arrests and clean up the city of the
tough element, Now, Mr. Citizen, let
me) ask you one Question, suppose you
had a sewer to clean and you went
down into that sewer to fill the buck
ets with the filth In that sewer and
you had to depend on a man higher
tip to dispose of that filth and when
you , passed it on to him he would
dump it where it would run straight
back to you, would you be encourag
ed very much in keeping dipping it
up? Well, that is Just tiie position of
our police, they make arrests, plenty
of them, then they hand them over
to the man higher up and what doeB
lio do with them? O, gives them a
fow days or perhaps a few months;
then the chances are will let them
out On parole and they are dumped
back on the , people and the police,
when If they had got what was their
flues they would bo sent up for one
to five years. Salem Is getting the
mime of being oisy and the tougher
element is drifting this way.
Sulum used to be called the quiet
clean city, but unless our police are
given more support and the toughs
what they doserve we will soon loose
our good name and will be called
the eawy. Now what we should do Is
to shut down so hard on crime of all
kinds that the very, name of Salem
will be a terror to tho evil doer.
Now I think we have got uu extra
fine lot of police and men that aro
willing to do move than their part,
mid If the people and tho judges will
do their part and whenever the po
iico bring in a crook don't turn him
loose with a small fino or a few days
in jail, hut give them the limit, thou
the crooks will pans Hiilcm up as a
tiad place to. stop and our littlu city
will regain its good name.
Now, good idllxens, don't put all tho
blame on the police but give the oth
er fellows n whaik for I believe in
hitting where it will do the most

CHILD WELFARE WORK.
PERMANENT Eugenic and Child Welfare' quarters are
to be opened this week by the Salem branch of the
Oregon Congress of Mothers, with the purpose of pro
viding free physical examination of babies and children
brought to the clinic Eminent specialists have volun
teered their services so that parents will receive the same
opportunities afforded in the larger cities.
Any child between five months and six years of age
may be brought to the clinic and expert examination be
given for teeth, eye, ear, nose, throat and other trouble
incident to childhood. The physicians, specialists, dent
ists and nurses of the community have offered the heart
Many of the minor diseases of chcildhood, if neglect
ed, seriously interfere with the growth and health. Prompt
and skillful treatment effects a permanent cure. Many
of the little ones are handicapped by physical ailments
unsuspected by their parents and an examination will dis
close them. Every parent should take advantage of the

secure for Marion county a public nurse, whose duty is to
care for the sick and neglected among the poor, give lec
tures upon hygiene in the public schools and give physical
examinations to students. In the latter she should have
the co-operation of local physicians and specialists. She
would work under auspices of the Congress of Mothers,
local Red Cross chapter and state society for the preven
tion of tuberculosis and her salary and expenses be defray
ed by the county.
Nearly every progressive community in the country
has such nurses and they do a world of good. No money
can be better expended, or expended in a better cause
than for this real welfare work. In Oregon, Multnomah,
Jackson, Coos and Lane county have public nurses and
Marion county should not lag behind. v
ALL accounts agree that Germany is sullenly planning
revenge for her defeat, that the militarists are still
in the saddle, that nearly a million men remain under
arms and that only time and opportunity are awaited to
renew the sinister attack upon the world.
Germany has never manifested the slightest sign of
repentence her people are openly unrepentant and only
bowing to necessity. The open defiance of the armistice
provisions in Poland, the many breeches of faith with
the allies, show that defeat has left unchanged the Ger
man characteristics as manifested throughout the war.
It is still the Germany of poisonous gas, of submarine war
fare, of inhuman atrocities. As soon as rehabilitation
takes place there will be a renewal of f rightfulness.
Masquerading as a civic guard, military training is
almost universal, the correspondents tell us. Veterans of
the war do the drilling .and keep alive the martial spirit,
while all over the country machine guns and munitions are
buried. Intrigues, are unending for German predominance
in Russit, and it is time the world woke to the situation.
Prompt ratification of the peace treaty will alone
enable action to avert the impending catastrophe. As long
as there is probability of its failure and the consequent
collapse of the league of nations, just so long will the Ger
mans feel encouraged to proceed with their plans of con
quest. The senators opposing the treaty and holding out
for a separate peace, are playing the .German game, aid
ing and abetting the common enemy. Only by enforcing
the provisions of the peace treaty can the war be brought
to a victorious end and world menace averted.

disgust I felt when his hand dropped
upon my shoulder. .,
For a moment I was almost ready
to emulate the little old woman of
the nursery rhyme and ask If "I be I?"
I did ask: "Can the man who has just
left you, Kate Gordon, be the same
man who set your nerves al! a-flutter
the moment you raised your eyes to
him the first time?"
With the quick change that comes to
all women with vivid memories and
strong Imaginations, all that I had
been thinking -was blotted out and
again I felt, In memory, the thrill that
came to me as I looked up for the first
time into the smiling gray eyes of John
Gordon three years and a half before.
I had been the house guest of an old
school friend and for three weeks the
stage had been set for his coming into
my life. Every one that I met spoke
of him of his fascination, his charm
of manner, his good looks, and his well
turned compliments. Again and aaln
I heard speculations as to why he had
"All the girls are crazy about him,"
said my friend, "but I have' never
known him to single out any one for
attentions that might mean Inten
tions." We were at the Country Club the
evening of our first meeting. I had
been aimlessly firtling with little Bob
by Gaylord when I heard the voice of
my friend Helen Van Ness at my ear.
"Kate," she said, "I want John Gor
don to know you, and I want you to
know John Gordon. Two people with
such originality and independence of
thought should either be friends or an
tagonists and I leave you to find out
which of these you are going to be to

thure was no mistaking in my mind,
what I was to be to him. As I raised
my eyes to his and extended my hand,
I am sure that he felt the same physi

thrill that almost embarrassed me, so
sure was I that every one could see my

words he asked me to dance and as
the strains of the sensuous Hawwalian
music, bo popular that summer, came
to us his arm stole around my waits
and we glided out on the floor. We
danced wonderfully together and for
some moments neither spoke. Finally
he bent his lips so close to my ear that
I could feel his warm breath as he
