Light signul practice on a sloppy

Tonight brings the Merchants' Dress

close. It also sees the finish of the con
test for the most popular local model
who is taking part in the show.
Salem is being combed today by the
various contestants for votes and the
closhing minutes of this big Merchants'
co-operative effort will surely be ex
citing. For tonight's show there will be a
complete change of garments with a new
picture program. Several new ideas
have been worked into the production
and it was much better last night than
on Wednesday. Everybody who attend

success from an artistic standpoint,"
declared A. E. Laflar, manager of the
Oregon theatre. "We have not had an
attraction at the Oregon for a long time
that pleased everybody so well as did

San Francisco May Take This
Plan to Check Food
San Francisco, Nov. 3. A municipal
grocery store may, be San Francisco's
answer to the present high cost of liv
ing. Supervisor Charles Nelson declared to
day that he would soon introduce an
ordinance providing for the establish
ment of a warehouse for the distribution
of provisions at moderate prices.
"A famine is facing the poorer
classes in San Francisco by reason of
the enormous increases in food prices-"
said Nelson. "I know of cases here
where families arc actually going with
out proper nourishment because of their
inability to pay the grocer and their
rent at the same t(me.
' ' Unless there is a speedy improve
ment in conditions, I propose to urge the
establishment of a hew city department

would involve purchase by the city of
huge quantities of provisions and hold

may develop. Those provisions could
be sold at rock bottom prices the city
