instrumental in the organizing of a lo
cal chapter in Salem, presided as toast
master. Preceding tile buiupiet, a re
ception was held in which Senator Bur
ton was introduced.
The paper of the evening was read
by Prof. F. S. (iannet, principal of the
Washington junior high, in which
he dealt with the social and economic
causes of the Revolution, and the vari
ous acts of shortsightedness of the
Knglish government which finally
brought the American colonies into re
bellion, although at first they had no
thought of separation from the mother

These lectures have been attracting
lnrgo crowds, as Mr. Keed tells of his
ins opening remarks. "I certainly ap
prove or the objects of the society, one
of which is to commemorate the events
of that day." As to the Present situ
ation in the world, the sen itor was of
the opinion that we are now living in
tearful times, when the ordinary course
of civilization has been stopped. "We
must be a better America, and more fit
to be in the front of every movement."
Aproval of the placing of a flag
where it may be seen when naturaliza
tion pipers are taken out was expressed
by the senator. "The flag should be
an inspiration to those applying for nat
uralization, that henceforth they arc
not to live to die for a king, but to live
for the republic."'
In introducing Mayor White, toast
master Hammond staled that Salem
wis one of the truly typical cities of
the country, a beautiful city and the
city of ideal homes.
