busted wire are bared. And one
toil around all day, and make the
blamed thing worse; and if lie duly
get his liny, he ciuvs no tinker'

a with a Hledje he beats; one smears
a lot of rancid grease upon the velvet

who know just what to do; he find
the rluktum that in bent, the one
that broke In two. He diagnoses
my old boat a Home great guiireon
might, and he restore my errant
Boat, and fill me wlili delisht. In
ten brief minute he has found just
why the motor struck; he deftly
make the wheels go round, and tuxes
me oiw buck. HI Rhlrt 1 damp with

TO PUT SALEM ON THE MAP.
THE coming year promises to be the most important
in Salem's historv. Prooer effort nut forth now

than all eiiorts comoinea in ine past, iuore peuyie uc
planning to leave the blizzard swept east to seek new
homes in the northwest than ever before and co-operative
effort on the part of Salem is needed to attract popu
lation and industry.
No city on the Pacific slope offers greater opportun
ity to the investor, the manufacturer or the farmer than
Salem. The center of the richest valley, with a wealth
of available resources, with ample power, water and rail
transportation, the location is ideal for manufacturing,
while industries already established furnish a competitive
home market for every agricultural or horticultural pro
duct that can be grown.
No other locality enjoys such advantages but they
mnsr he made known to the world before the world will
appreciate them, Salem is known abroad aa a sleepy
. i i ?i i u t ,,...:,-,
capital wnen it snotua rank as a prugiessive, em.e tun
ing distributing and manufacturing center.
There is only one way in which the claims of Salem
can be presented to. the world by organized and system
atic effort through the organization created for this pur
posethe Salem Commercial Club. The club enjoys a
large membership, maintains comfortable club rooms for
entertainment, with assembly halb and forums which
are always at the service of the public. It has an ex
perienced and capable organizer as manager and its ac
tivities are supervized by public-spirited business men
who devote considerable time to it3 affairs.
There is no question but that the club justifies its
existence. During the war period it wras the clearing
house for all the principal war drives. It was through
the club that a terminal rate was established for Salem,
benefitting the present plants and making the city an
advantageous location for new industries. A number of
our present industries were the direct result of the club's
efforts, among them, the Salem-Kings Products Co. It has
the past year, united the communities of Marion County
in co-operative effort for county development.
The club's membership dues, however, are barely
sufficient with careful economy, to sustain the club and
pay its overhead expenses. Until the club membership
increases materially there will be no funds for publicity
work and matters of community improvement which is
the province of the club to inaugurate. It is the business
policy of the present board of directors to keep the club
out of debt and contract no indebtedness until the
money to pay for the same is in the treasury and the
growth of membership, while steady, is not rapid enough
to make available the funds needed at once to take ad
vantage of what promises to be the best year of any in
the club's history to secure results in upbuilding Salem
and developing its tributary territory.
Among the needs of the club is literature descriptive
of the 'city and valley all publicity and descriptive mat
ter having been exhausted. Money is needed for pub
licity work needed now above all times. It is needed to
secure auto camping grounds for tourists and for other
civic enterprises. It is needed for . co-operation with
county communities in their booklet and road sign cam
paignand it is needed now.
There is but one way the money can be secured
and that is bythe business men, property owners, and
manufacturersfwho profit directly and indirectly through
the club's efforts in upbuilding Salem and developing. the
valley, contributing it. . ' m
This has been a prosperous year for everyone and
nearly all engaged in business can afford to contribute
generously to help make the coming year still more pros
perous and increase the business of the community the
coming year by adding to its industries and population.
To adequately finance the club for its essential pro
gram, the directors have decided to appeal to the civic
pride and patriotism of Salem, and ask one hundred con
tributions of $100 each for a special fund to put Salem
on the map.
The appeal' will not be in vain only those financially
able, lacking in public spirit, will refuse their co-operation
in this, the club's hour of need. The money ought to be
volunteered within a few days again giving the world
an example of the new Salem Spirit.

A XEW WAY TO TKAVtL.
The time bad come when Jolly Rob
in waa ready to begin his long journey
to the South, for It was trowing quite
cold. On some days there was no sun
a alL And even wbeu tbe weather was
fair the sun rose late and went to bed
e;ily. It waa exactly the sort of weani-
ei Jolly Robin did not like.
"Xo doubt you'll be. leaving us
scon." Jasper Jay remarked to Jolly
one day. when the two chanced to
meet in Farmer Ureeo's woods where
the beeches grew.
"I expect to start tomorrow," Jolly
Robin answered with a short langn.
Ho Felt Very Lonely. All At Once.
The mere thought of his warm, light
footed winter home in the Southland
made hint feel glad.
"Well, well!'. Jasper Jay exclaimed.
"I'm glad I happened to see you, for 1
know of a new way to travel."
And Jolly Robin wanted to know all
"It It's a better way than the old,
I'll be pleased to try it," he said.
"Oh! It's much better," - Jasjft Jay
told him. "If I hadn't made up my
mind to spend the winter in Pleasant
Valley, I'd go the new waytayself. But
the beechnut crop Is good this fall. So
I shall stay right here and enjoy It."
"Tell me how we're to fro, if you
please!" Jolly Robin urged him.
"We!" said Jasper. T0U don't mean
to say you are. going with a crowd, do
"Why, yes!" Jolly Robin replied. "An
the Robina are, leaving tomorrow. And
I had intended to go with them."
Jasper Jay shook his head.
"Take my advice and don't do any
such thing," he said. "Tou'll find it
quieter travelling alone. And though
you may not know it, it's the fash
ionable thing to do."
Jolly Robin laughed when Jasper
"But I'm not a fashionable person!"
"Then you should become one." Jas
per told him. "Besides, the new way is
easier, as well as more stylish. But if
you're afraid to try something new ,of
course I wouldn't think of urging
"I'm not afraid!" Jolly Robin cried.
",nd if you'll only tell me what to do,
I promise you I'll try it!" "
"tlood!" Jasper Jay said. "Meet me
here day after tomorrow and I'll start
you on your journey. I can't explain
anything now, because I must hurry
over to the woods at once, where my
cousin, .Mr. Crow is waiting for me."
Then be flew away, screaming a loud
giHid-by as he went.
So Jolly Robin hastened back to the
orchard, to find his wife and tell her
what he had decided to do.
He had no difficulty at all in finding
her. But he had no end of trouble try
ing to persuade her to travel with him
the new way instead of going- with the
crowd in the good ,old fashioned way.
I't fact, she raised so many objections
saying how lonely it would be and how
dangerous is was to travel in a small
crowd and that she didn't want to be
fashionable she raised so many ob
jections that at last Jolly Robin said
vtry well! she might do as she pleased.
Eut as for him, he was going to meet
Jasper Jay just as he had promised.
And since the new way was easier, he
expected to reach their winter quarters
long before she arrived, even If he did
start a day later.
But he was disappointed just the
same. Andi he kept, up such a constant
le.ughing and joking all the rest of that
day that -his wife knew he must be
foiling quite out of sorts.
For that was a way Jolly Robin had.
The worse he felt, the happier he al
ways actedi And it was not a bad way
either .jf --.

"Oh, you needn't bother about

I couldn't help but luugh, although

It was real tragedy.

"Well, if a man had any. sense un
