STAGED BY CI1ERRIMIS IS
who engineered the Christmas enter-
prise to success were: Xmas cneer
j committee: J- W. Todd. Frank Deck-
tcli, E. T. Tlllinghast, J. F. Hutch-
ason and W. I. Staley; tree commFt-
Dr. H. C. Epley, Lee Unruh.
j Charles Knowland and Ernest Happ
ihahn. Santa Claus was brought to the
'children by E. W. Hazard, president
lot the I'nited States National bank.
To more than 150 children assemb
led at the Commercial club rooms, on
Christmas eve, Santa Claus really ap
peared and many a childish faith Iii
' Srood old Saint Nicholas, undermined
perhaps h? sordid and poorly envir
onment, was recreated and strength
ened during the Joyous hour spent un
der the-friendly guidance of the Sa
Jein Cherrlans.-i . r - , " "
Big brothers indeed!- theae same
Cherrians were as they appeared at
the club rooms early in the evening,
each one accompanied by a group of
youngsters of various ages. In their
uniforms, these good fellowa were in
deed right hand assistants of the spir
it of Christmas as they assisted San
ta Claus in His immense task.
And it was a large contract for old
Hnnta. Here were 250 youngsters,
each with an Individual longing that
L the generous pile of gifts under the
KpU'tnlidly decorated tree, might be
found a package bearing a name that
would make a certain small heart go
pit-a-pat as a tiny hand was held up
in fear that one of the gift distribu
tors would overlook that same hand.
J5ut the Cherrians and Commercial
club members made every effort to
xee that no one was missed and even
when it developed that a number of
extra guests not on the gift lists had
uppearcd steps were taken to see that
these received extra candy and they
were given first placer at the long ta
bles where ice cream and a luncheon
of sweets was served.
. "No sir," said a small laddie of
nbout 7 years, when asked If he had
linen remembered on the gift list, a
Veal baseball, a box of candy and a
'l"er dollar were exhibited, "They
didn't miss me. Tou see Santa Onus
remembered me lots this year because
lie could not come last year. You
know mamma died last Christmas,
lut the doctor gave me a quarter."
And so were the versions of each
child's past Christmas experiences
varied, for, be It remembered, these,
for the most part were not children
of large comfortable homes, but of
the loss fortunate folk of the city.
Following the gift distribution, the
Iciddlps banqueted. In the Commor
. rial club' recreation rooms a wonder
ful Christinas, tree story was tohl by
Miss Helena Wililtt, principal of the
Knitlewood school. , , : t .; .
following, the evening's program,
the youngsters were bundled Into
their wraps nnd returned to their
. homes by C'herrlan cars placed at the
children's disposal by generous heart
ed citizens of Salem. . t .

Reports from the states and the Ca
nadian provinces shov that there are
rnoie hunters In the field this fall tl.a
Inere has ben in several years. Thi
le due to several reasons. One is that
there is more game this year; another
is that men who were in -the service
r.ow have the. opportunity of going
afield, and another is that more peopie
become interested in outdoor life eticr
year and therefore the ranks of the
hunters become augmented yearly.
Th duck hunting on the Pacifir
coast has been better this fall .than
for several years, and the duck hunt
ing is always good in season in south
ern California: Bull Moose were shot
in Maine this fall, from November 21
to 30, the first open season since 1915.
.ine aeer season was cut 15 days n
Ylaine but that only brougnt all the
-unters ' in" a shorter space of time.
Maine had a lot of new laws on the
'Imposition of Moose. Night shooting
was prohllbted as was shooting on
Sunday. You couldn't hunt, .cgaily,
torn an automobile.
; Moose once upon a time ranged over
0,e whole of the northeastern woods;
f.oy only one state in the Union Min
nesotahas an open season. There was
a time when the lumber camps fed the
umber jacks on moose; It being cheap
er to hire native to kill moose thail
to purchase beef or pork. In thosej
days moose were used for target prac
tice in the closed season. Those were
the halcyon days. They have gone,
never to return. -,. ...
Now we are very much T'ooncerned
about the bag limits. Sportsmen who
are inclined to be' proud of their skill
seem to feel that if they bring home
any number of birds below the num
ber prescribed by law, it Is in a way
humiliating to them and two or moia
