NEW CLAIM METHOD
WORKS TO SUCCESS
The application of a new and more
expeditions system of handling the
claims of injured workmen has enabled
the state industrial accident to dispose
of a total of 613 more claims during
the month of October than were filed.
According to the monthly report of
the commission just issued there were
a total of 20S2 reports of which Id
were fatal reported during October.
In the same period a total of 2695
claims were disposed of.
The new system, evolved by Com
rr.Issloner Will T. Kirk through the co
operation of the heads of various de
partments, not only insures prompt
ness in the payment of claims of in
jured Workmen but will enable the
commission to overcome the heretofore
, re pidly mounting mass of claims which
the department receives.

What's Matter With Salem
What is the matter with Salem people?- What kind of a citi
zen are you? Why are the Red Cross solicitors meeting; with such
poor success? It is reported that a great many people in Salem
are unwilling to enroll their names with the Red Cross and it
would appear that they are too stingy or too un-American, or just
plain ignorant of what the Red Cross has done and is doing at this
time or stands ready to do whenever and wherever the necessity
arises. It is almost beyond belief that a solicitor should have the
dbor shut in her face when she calls at the better class or nomes
in Salem to ask that the owners of that home enroll their names
with the Red Cross.
Mr. Man or woman in Salem who has refused the Red Cross
solicitor vour name and one dollar (no more is asked of any one),
just what do you think of your
sav to the world that vou do not

work this society has accomplished that you feel that it is not
necessary to support it?
