has been devoted to Bankers Day. but
this does aot mean that one day enly

value of opening a saving account Ev.

effort will be well worth while If it will
help people to think a little concern

the lawyers of the city. With a fine
spirit of disinterestedness the local
lawyers have contributed a full page
in each one of the daily papers on the
subject of thrift because they believe
strongly in the importance of this cam
paign. On Thursday nineteen of the leading
manufacturing firms of the city will
have their opportunity to advance
thrift In "Industry Day." In many
towns and cities- savings clubs have
ben organised in many industries with j
the most benefleient results.

U.S. BANK PIG CLUB

The., boys and girls industrial activ
ities, ns represented by the U. 3. Na
tional bank pig club has had signal
success in the year 1919. Three of the
club's members: Homer Bray, Oli
ver Feustman and Louis Drager par
ticipated in stock Judging contests at
Salem, Spokane and Portland and se
cured a number of first and Becond
awards. These boys competed with
teams from all over tho Pacifio north
went and their work has excited much
praise for the club's accomplishments.
Where Is the v Business , Men's
Not so many months ago, according
to newspaper files, and pioneers of the
city, there Was an organization. Joint
to the Salem Commercial club, called
by that name. Each month Its mem
bers gathered in courtesy to the Com
mercial club in the club's chambers
and discussed oftimes in heated ten
sion, matters akin to the stride of
events in the municipality.
All this is recalled by old timera
Some even, possessing keen memories,
recall that the Business Men's League
had 113 members all paid and active,
in good standing.
In this same resume of distant facts
it is said that meetings of the organiza
tion were well atended. In each mem
ber, apparently, there lurked a smol
dering spark of longing to do some
good, that burst into flame and cast a
glow of accomplishment at these
monthly meetings. , '
But the Business' Men's League, if
the past two meetings of the organiza
tion are representative, has retired to
the archives of hlsory.
In late December, when the date for
the meeting fell, a half dozen members
sat around the Commercial club an
hour patiently awaiting the arrival of
a quorum. It was snowing and the
weather was cold. So the meeting was
Wednesday night the next regular
date came up. For two days 'it had
been generally advertised that the
meeting would be held, and that mat
ters of importance Would be discussed.
Further, a personal request that each
member be present was made.
For a half hour Wednesday night
eight men sat In the club's chambers
In mute supplication for a quorum. By
nine o'clock the quroum 14 men
had arrived. This was an hour after
the meeting had been scheduled to be
gin. There were four dry goods mer
chants, one baker, one druggist, one
dentist, a furniture dealer, a book sell
er, a hardware man, and several oth
ersbut not one grocer present .
But the meeting convened. Little
business was transacted before one of
the men present, finding that he could
not push through legislation conscien
tiously without the. presence of other
business men, proposed a plan for the
revival of the aforementioned spark of
enthusiasm, vitality and civic pride.
It was the naming of a committee of
three to make a personal tour among
the. business houses of the ctiy, and
members, of the. . league, to beseech
them to attend the oet meeting; and,
If it be' their pleasure, explain their
absence from previous meetings.
Although recognized by those pres
ent as being the mainstay of the Com
mercial club, and cognizant of the fact
that its support rests mainly with them
their activity was throttled by the ab
sence of fellow members.

Oliver Morosco will present Leo

famous laughing success "Lombadi,

day, January 2S. The combination of
names in connection with the comedy
is sufficient in itself to promise one of
the most interesting and important at

Morosco, the producer, has brought
forth many of the biggest laughing hits
the American stage has .ever known,
while Frederick and Fanny Hatton are
equally well and substantially known
in the field of native authors.
The big New York success of this
comedy has unquestionably made
familiar to local theatre-goers. A slight
idea of its record-breaking success may
