Because, in spite of fine natural ad
jutages and proximity to the great
north and south arteries of valley
traffic, North Salem must cither have
more pared and improved streets or
become a veritable shack town, that
painful nightmare of luckless prop
erty owners, who wake up too late.
The reason is simple. In this auto age,
lensible people of means will not
fcuild good homes on unpaved streets.
Because most of the thirty thou
sand visitors In a day at the last state
lair had to drive over Highland ave
nue and, considering the many thou
sands of dollars which the state fair
ave n Salem every year, the most
elementary common business sense
and civic pride would seem to de
mand that the city bestir itself to see
trial a broad paved street is extend
ed to the fair gates, and that much
at least Is done toward making the
attendance forty thousand next year.
Because all traffic to another state
institution, the state school for deaf,
must pass over Highland avenue, and
as this school has spoilt nearly whalf
million dollars in Salem since it was
moved to its present site, some civic
recognition of the fact is about due,
th money no doubt being very ac
feptablei Because big talk of a mighty wel

LOSSES DUE TO U. S.
American Headquarters, Coblenz,
Germany, Feb. 18. Claims for dam
ages to streets, buildings, farms and
even individuals all reputed to have
been dono by American soldiers or
American equipment of some kind
kind since the army of occupation
reached the Rhine, aggregajjey something-more
than 6, 000,00ft "marks.
Those allowed total approximately
250,000 marks. Many claims are
unique and some without any justifi
cation. A woman who contendod that her
facial appearance had been marred
for life, owing to cuts caused by fly
ing glass due to an explosion at an
ammunition dump, sent in the mod
est claim for 250 marks. It was al
lowed. Another woman, whose husband
had been killed by an American mil
itary policeman who was chasing dis
tributers of contrabrand liquor, sub-
Til'ted a claim to the Americans for
250,000 marks, contending that her
sole support had been taken from
her. The Americans maintained that
the German had been killed by the
American soldier who was acting
within his rights in line of duty. The
claim was disapproved.
Some of the claims are humorous.
Last summer, the Eighty ninth divis
ion borrowed a goat for a circus at
its headquarters. Recently a claim
was filed, with the American town
major asking damages on the conten
tion that the health of the goat had
heen injured. The claim was pigeon
holed. A Rhineland farmer recently de
manded five marks for a bean pole
alleged to have been stolen by an
American soldier. An army commis
sion heard the case and threw out
the claim on the ground there was
no evidence to show that an American
had committed the theft.

If You Don't Want to Wait
, Next Spring, Order Now
I AST year's production of the Chandler Six wa f record volume and
J this year's production will double It; but if you don't want to wait for
your new Chandler next spring, we would suggest that you order It now.
This year's automobile shows have attracted crowds greater than ever
before, partly perhaps because hundreds of thousands of Americans were
unable to secure new cars last year. And these great crowds of motor
enthusiasts have found no better value In the whole tihibit of six cylinder
cars than that which Chandler offers.
Chandler leads so distinctly in the medium-priced fine car field
because it doe? offer such splendid value; because of its really marvelous
motor developed through seven years of production in the Chandler plant
and seven years' service on the road in the hands of a host of owners; be
cause of its sturdy, dependable mechanical construction throughout tbe
entire chassis; and because of its attractive and comfortable body.
Comptr them all. all the six, then pieK out yours. .
