PUPIL AT $56.12
Superintendent Smith Cuts
Board's ' Figures
lu the statement of W. M. Smith,
county school superintendent, to school
district. No. .24 in the matter of the
high school tuition fund, he eliminates
$12,524.63 which was included in the
total cost of education as sent in bj
the school clerk's report. This sum
includes $1,529.84 for repairs, $4,204;3S
as depreciation of building and equip
ment at tho. rate of 4 per cent, and
$6,790.45 as interest on the investment.
These tho county superintendent disal
lowed alleging they do not come under
the cost of education. This cost the
district figures, basing on daily at
tendance, as $71.13.
However, Superintendent Smith
figures the annual cost of educating
each pupil is $50.12. Divide this by
1S0, the number of days in the school
year, and it brings the cost per day of
the pupils to ."117 cent, which equals
the cost of non-resident Marion county
pupils. On this basis the district will
receive only $48,494.11 instead of the
$5S.OI8.7li asked for. Multiplying
.3117 cent by 19,110, the tofnl num
ber of day's"' attendance, gives .the
sum due the Salem High school for
non-resident Marion county pupils as
5,950.58. Seventy-five percent of the
total sum, or $4,407.44, is the amount
of the warrant drawn for the district,
and 25 per cent is yet to be paid
when sufficient taxes are turned over
to the treasurer for this fund.
At a recent meeting of the school
board it was decided to institute a
frieudly suit to determine what con
stituted the "cost of education" as
the school board believed that repairs,
depreciation, .and interest on invest
ment should be included ns

Great Crowds at Theater
Waited An Hour for
Doors to Open
Hundreds of Salem folks will bear
witness to. the fact that big outstanding
feature of the opening night of. Dress
t'p Week was the Stylo Show that is
being staged at the Oregon theatre for
three days as the co-operative effort of
the representative firms of Salem.
Lcujg before the whistles blew, usher
ing in tho Dress-Up celebration, huge
crowds waited before the theatre and
.literally tore away the lobby display ii
their rush to buy tickets and find a seat.
Hundreds were turned-away and hun
dreds were compelled to stand during
the performance, which lasted close on
to three hours.
Nine local girls supported Miss Mabel
Vaughau.the professional . New .York
model and every girl made a creditable
impression. Many folks left the theatre
with the impression that some of the
Salem girls made a more favorable ap
pearance than even Miss Vaughan. As
each local girl entered there were bursts
of applause, which was divided between
all of the girls. No doubt the audience
will continue to favor one or more, of
the local girl in an attempt to assist
her -in the contest for the .suit or coat
which will be given away tomorrow
night to the most popular model. The
Misses Esch were very graceful and
were well received. Priscilla Fleming
was very dainty in her dancing frock.
Vcrua Cooder wore a delightful after
noon dress with.au. exquisite hut. Char
ity Burleson received her share of the
applause on each apeparance. Mabel
West quite captivated the audience with
her 'work and was well received. Mrs.
Grace Pilkiugton looked best in her coat
and was popular with the crowd. Flor
ence Powell was stunning in her first
change and the crowd hummed with fa
vorable comment. Florence Billings
wore a pretty suit and was graceful.
All of the girls did well.
The garments worn by the girls were
from Gaile & Co., Fullerton's, Shipley's
nnd Kafoury Bros. The shoes were
furnished by the Price Shoe company
(and the millinery was from the French
j Shop, Mrs. Locke and the Gibson Mil-
linery. Hie men models were attired
by the Salem Woolen Mills store,
The Style Show opened with a dinncl
dance scene. It was clever and the au
dience showed their approval by a siilen-
did response.. The couples arose from
their tables and danced to the front of
the stage while the young ladies pivot
ed gracefully and displayed their gar
ments The second scene was given over
to the display of suits and afternoon
dresses while the third and last scene
was tn exhibition of coats. The men
models appeared in each scene and made
n spjeiulitl background for the iirls.
The show was satisfactory. " Every
body was pleased immensely 'pleased.
It' was, by fur, the best Style Show ever
stp.ged in Salem. There were no long
delays. The show was put on with a
unsli that showed the vast amount of
work and time given to it.
Everybody was impressed with the
merchandise shown. As each model ap
peared the audience immediately com
menced to hum with comment on the
garments worn and everybody left the
tlientro with a new idea of the compre
hensive Hues carried by Sulem firms.
A. II. Allen, who staged the show
for the locul merchants deserves credit
for the sl ow. It wus cleverly plnuued
nnd enniel out without a hitch. Today
Mr. Allen is busy perfecting the per
formance so that the show tonight and
Friday will be even better.
This afternoon the lingerie show is on
lor women only. 1 here is a big attend

tionably a splendid model and worked

sue is winning all Salem. So all's well
thut ends well.

pfcautiful Window Decorations

Even the oldest inhabitant could not
remember the time .when there was
such a crowd, of peoptyjOn the streets

of the display windows and to enjov
thq;fun making of Willamette Univer

Last night was the crowning event
of "Dress Up Week" in Salem and
when the streets werq darkened for a

the people in the city were owded
into the business district.

such artistic and olaboraterWiadow dis

But when it 'conies to genuine appre
ciation and the desire to linger, the
living models caught the crowds as un
til lato in the evening the display of
the latest in gowns and hats caught the
fancy not only of the women, but the
men as well.
At the Spa, the little daughter of
Mr. and Mrs. Frank Myers placed in
the window surrounded by all sorts of
candy, caught the fancy of the sight
seeing crowds. The control figure of the
Frame Shop was a pretty little girl

street was blocked for hours, as the
living models displayed the latest in
Indies fashionable wear. At the French
Shop, two attractive models entortain
ed the crowds in-showing the latest in
millinery and hats.' The models in the
Fullcrton window showed huts and
coats to,. admiring audiences. .
The Meyers department store's dis
play was unique from tho fact that the
displays ou both Liberty and Court
streets were devoted to special show
ings of silk dress 'draperies and that the
forms were draped in silks without cut
ting the. goods or trimmings, yet hav
ing the effect of tailored goods.
The IT. G. Shipley windows held the
crowds especially those interested in
the latest wear. Without being elabor
ate, the' artistic arrangement caught
the fancy of .the -crowds. '
One of the most elaborate 'windows,
ono requiring time and study was that
of the Imperial Furniture company, ar
ranged by Paul Stege. This window re
ceived many compliments on account
of the care wjth .which each detail
was worked out. '

a large number of tanners residing in

half of the measure. Alfred C. Schmidt
of this city, and other speakers opposed
it. When Mr. U'Keu finished speaking

The resolution not only pointed out
that the measure was "vicious and
highly detrimental to the welfare of
all rurul pursuits, but contained a
statement that the measure was framed
with the intent lo deceive the voters
as to its import. Mr. U'Kcn opposed
that statement in the resolution and
its authors then consented to amend it
on the ground that they had no evi
dence to show the intent hack of the

ence here he said:
" I have just returned from a trip
through Ohio nnd Indiana with a pro
found sense of gratification and entire
confidence with respect to the result

ana it is not exaggerating to say that
I had receptions which perhaps exceed
ed those accorded to any presidential
't That was, of course, not a tribute
to me personally, but it was an indica
tion of the deep interest that the peo
plo are taking iu the essential condi
tions of their prosperity and. their sat
isfaction that there Is a great united
republican party ready for service at
this critical time.
"We of course know well thut so far
as promises go, no party can exceed the
promises made by our opponents. But
we measure what they say by what
they have done. They told us four years
ago they would reduce the cost of liv-v
ing. They said thy . would do away
with extravagance in government.
They tell us now they are going to deal
with economic problems that confront
us at this time iji a satisfactory man
"But if we endeavor to ascertain by
what principle they are to be guided
we look in vain. I propose to tell you by
