Within a week or 10 days, Salem will

The mercantile department of the
Commercial club at the regular monthly
meeting this evening, will be urged to
grant a cord giving the privilege of
soliciting to F. B. Wedel, who is here
endeavoring to interest the citizens of
Salem in the erection of a deaconess
hospital under the direction and aus
pices of the Mcuonite church.
At a meeting several months ago of
the Commercial clnB, endorcment was
given Mr. Wedel. Later he wns refused
the privilege of soliciting funds in the
city by the Mercantile department.
Mr. Wedel was instrumental in estab
lishing the deaconess hospital eight
years ago at Xewton, Kansas, and nr
present they have more than $100,000
invested in that city in buildings and
property. Three and a half years ago
he went to American Falls, Idaho, and
through the assistance and encourage
ment given, erected buildings to the
value of $25,000 and established a hos
pital that last year accommodated 422
On account of the number of Men
unites in the valley, Mr, Wedel is fa
vorably disposed towards Salem. He
comes with recommendations from the
lending medicul authorities of Idaho
and a personal letter from a judge of
the Idaho supreme court.
The proposition to come up before the
Mercantile department of the Coinemr
cinl club tonight is whether Mr. Wedel
will be given a card permitting him to
solicit subscriptions. The petition ask
ing a favornble consideration of the
plans of Mr. Wedel, to be presented to
the Mercantile department this evening
is signed by Drs. Robinson and Morse,
Dr. F. H. Thompson and a number of
prominent citizens who believe a hos
pital bringing Menonites to this country
would be of advantage to Salem. Joseph
H. Albert, president of the Commercial
club, is also strongly in favor of giv
ing Mr. Wedel all possible assistance.
It is probable that if Mr. Wedel is
turned down by the Mercantile depart
ment tonight, he will make no further
effort to establish a hospital in Sa

NOT WELL ATTENDED
Autos and Good Weather
with Belief Congress Would
Provide the Cause
Salem patriotism has been shown in
many practical ways, but last evening
the good citizens of the city were not
in a mood for a mass meeting and as
a result what should have been a crowd
taxing the seating capacity of the arm
ory, resulted iu the attendance of pos
In his opening address, Justice Bur
nett as chairman of the meeting, said
that the boys at the front were experi
encing hard work and that it was the
duty of those at home to back them up
and to also see that those depending on
the soldier boys should not suffer.
Lieutenant Is'iemeyer iu an interesting
talk related that from his experience
04 a soldier in the British army, the
boys not only needed a change from the
regulation army rations, but that while
sending clothing and comforts, it might
be a good plan to just send along some
vermicide as insects of all kinds were
sure to be troublesome.
The Rev. Harry E. Marshall was rath
er disappointed that the wave of pa
triotism was no -stronger, judging by
the size of the audience. He put the
proposition strongly claiming that this
nation within the next 10 years would
be called on to do what it had never
done before and that within a few
years, there would of necessity be a
change for the good in a greater pa
triotism nnd a willingness that this
country should bear its burden as one
of the progressive nations of the earth.
Woodburn Raised 11,200.
Rev. James Elvin was of the opinion
there was need of great patriotism, es
pecially ng ninny families dependent
on those at the front, were in actual
distress. He also referred to Wood
burn's generosity in raising a fund of
$1,200 for her soldiers.
While the mass meeting was a disap
pointment to some extent, the statement
that individuals had come to the front
offeriug to help during the absence of
Company M brought out the fact thnt
the patriotic feeling was not entirely

ence by which the opportunity was giv

The small attendance and lack of In
terest in the mass meeting was duo to
several causes. The weather was per
fect for automobile riding, the impres
sion that congress would give $.r0 a

the thought that within a few months!
the boys would be home all served to I
prevent a genuine demonstration. 1
The program of the evening includ
ed singing by Mrs. Hallie Parish
Hinges whom Justice Burnett intro-;
duced as a woman we all love and who
has a boy at the front; a selection by
Tom Ordcmnn, orchestra pieces and the
singing of a patriotic song by George
Wilson of Medi'ord.
The Salem rifle club marched into the
hall in ranks of four, adding a touch of
the military spirit. The meeting last
evening was just the beginning of tho
efforts of the Patriotic league to make
life pleasant for the boys on the border
and in the effort to relieve those in
need in the city.
