a sucessful season for the minor league

prospect for 1920 In ihe various sec
tions of this lodntry and Canada were
never better. The people are turning
to amusements and outdoor sports for
recreation in greater numbers than ev
er before. Iast year the minor leagues
clubs enjoyed their most prosperous I
season In five years past This era of
prosperity extended to all leagues In
every section of the country and to the
far off Western Canada league In the
province of Saskatchewan and Alberta.
The. minor leagues have flourished un

ment as never before In the history of
lAIH Season GimhI.
According to the annual report read
at the convention of minor league club
owners held at Springfield, last Nov
emlier. 15 leagues employing nearly
I.noo players began the 1920 season
and 13 of these finished their official
playing schedules. The International
Northwestern league closed down on
June 7, but the New England league
paid lis players in full for the full term
of the schedule which ended Septem
ber 1, although the league closed Us

The National association of Minor
Haseball leagues which has been so
productive of good results and the wel
fare of the national game was organiz
ed Just 20 years ago. At the outset It
was composed of nine leagues mil
three years later It had 23 members
and in 1912 it reached the top notch
of 60 leiigue members.
' In that year, those 60 leagues em
braced 336 cities and towns in the
United States and Canada. The laun
ching of the Federal league made In
roads on the minors ns well as on the
major leagues and in 1915 owing jo
this cause and the outlirenlt of the
Kuropenn war, the membership drop

Burton As "Ump"
For 'J920 . Season
Many of Salens 's baseball fans have
asked Biddy Bishop, who will uc me
official umpire for the Senators during
the coming diamond season. In ac
cordance with his usual organization
care. Bishop has proceeded carefully
in this direction and lias finally lined
up a man whom he believe will suit
the Salem baseball contingent.
Ed Burton is the fortunate (or un
fortunate) man. He has called eat ior
many teams on the California state
league and as a player has worked
with all the hl-leagurers that play win
ter baseball. Mr. Burton says that he
only has one1 life, rather than the nine
an umpire should have, but states that
he is willing to risk that in the game.
Burton will make his first bow to
Salem - crowds at the opening game,
April 11, at the field at 12th and Ox
sponse from other portions of the Uni
ted Sttaes. Replies frequently come
from Canada. During the past mur.tn.
the slogan mail at the growers' offices
has averaged fifty letters daily.
, In conclusion, Mr. Lewis has anoth
er word of advice to possible contest
ants. "Avoid combination wordings of
the Oregon Growers association or lo
cal terminology, such as Oregrow,
OreGrown. SalemGrown or SalemFruit
Another popular preference in sug
gesting slogans is the reversal of the
word Oregon, giving "Nogero."

Brings U. S. and
K Mexico Closer
Mexico City, Mar. 22. Local news
pers. refer to the United States-Mexi
can trade conference which recently
closed its sessions here of "transcend
ent importance' 'and predict that as a
result there will be "closer relations
between the two republics, better un
derstanding and mutual amity." They
express the hope that this conference
will be made an annual at ram.
That Mexico is a fertile field for
American trade expansion was admit
ted by all speakers and all agreed that
if the United States is to get its share
of business there must be a revision of
its trade methods. A point insisted
upon by persons acquainted with the
country -was that the "cash in ad
vance" policy must be abandoned or
it least modified. Germany and Great
Britain, who appeared to be consid
ered the principal ,comnercial com
petitors, are liberal with their credits,
it 'was declared, and Latin tempera
ment does not take kindly to' a polic?
that een hints at personal dishonesty.
American Banks Scored.
American banks were severely
scored during the discussion for fin al
leged lack of co-operation with Amer
lean exporters In the matter of credits
and other accommodations that might
facilitate business. Representatives of
these banks declared in defense that
there was no disposition to discrimin
ate and that suitable credit stand
ing is all that is necessary.
F. W. Dunkerley, local banker and
representative of the American Bank
ers' association, said that Mexican
banks are opening commercial credits
in the United States, Europe, China
and Japan and that a system of trade
acceptance Is being worked out. He
urged larger American Investments.

The slogans quoted above are given
by Mr. Lewis as examples "what not

testify to the Ingenuity of contestants,
but three word slogans or incongruous
parallels to other known trade names
are held Mr. Lewis and others to be
impracticable for general trade usage.

FOR BURNING ECZEMA
Apply Zemo, the Clean, Anti
septic Liquid Easy to Use '
Does Not Stain
Greasy salves and ointments should
not be applied if good clear ekin is
wanted. From any druggist for 35c, or
$1.00 for large size, get a bottle of Zemo.
When applied as directed it effectively
removes eczema, quickly stops itching,
and heals skin troubles, also sores,
burns, wounds and chafing. It pene
trates, cleanses and soothes. Zemo is
a clean, dependable and inexpensive
antiseptic liquid. Try it, as we believe
nothing you have ever used is as effec
tive and satisfying.
