Arm? Officer In Salem
In Interest Of Contest
Lieutenant Colonel R. V. Venable,
senior publicity officer of the Oregon
recruiting district arrived in Salem
this morning. Colonel Venable has
been unable to visit Salem before on
account of the demands on his pffice
made by the school essay contest,
which has been taken up with such
enthusiasm throughout the district
that the requests for Information there
in have been met with difficulty. A
uupply of literature about the contest,
and about "our new democratic peace
time army," has now been furnished to
every county superintendent of schools
In the dlitrict, for distribution to the
schools of his county, whether public,
private or parochial. This supply is
not large, but It Is believed that every
school In Oregon will have received all
neiessary Information within a day or
two. Further news about the school
eesay contest will appear In the col
umns of this paper from time to time.
Colonel Venable will make his head
quarters at the army recruit station,

EAST IS IM HAD
SAYS G. L HALVORSEN
The wild and wooly west Is evident
ly a thing of the dim, distant past, but
the east today is as wild as the west
ever dared to be," said George B. Hal
vorsen Thursday, upon his return from
a two weeks sojourn in eastern states.
As a result of observations during his
eastern stay Mr. Haivorsen has decided
that the west Is not in it at all when
It comes to reckless squandering. "To
say that the entire section is money
mad, is putting it mildly." he said.
In a short talk before members of
the Elks club Thursday night, Mr. Hai
vorsen pointed out that "soap box agi
tator" of all kinds were laying hold
upon the unrestful state of affairs in
While In Chicago, Mr. Haivorsen at

and also visited the national truck
show at that city. He said tHat the
truck show was one of the finest ex
hibitions ever staged in that line" The
national tractor exhibit at Minneapolis
also attracted Mr. Haivorsen.
hlle In Chicago, Mr. Haivorsen vis
Ited various factories and ascertained
that industry there waa being over
loaded with orders.
From his observations at the factor
ies, he thinks that Salem and vicinity
will be fortunate if a fair ration of
cars ordered are obtainable at the fac
"I'm mighty glad to get back to Sa
lem," said Mr. Haivorsen. "The longer
I stayed, the more the conviction grew
on me that the Willamette valley is
Uod's country." "
