for this name
Four People Receive $3000 each
In our announcement last fall of the Eveready Contest for a better name
than "flashlight," we stated that if "two or more contestants submit the
word selected the full amount of the prize will be paid to each."
We have made our selection without "re
gard to the number of duplications. The
word chosen was submitted by the four
following contestants, to each of whom we
are paying $3000.00: .
Mrs. F.C. Grow, 1219 2d St, N.E.,Watertown,S.D.
Katherine W. Hand, 1501 MulvaneSt.Topeka.Kan.
Mita J. M. Schulz, 239 2nd St, Union Hill, N. J.
Bertha A. Wilson, 413 Park Ave., Medina, N. V.
The prize-winning word is DAYLO. It fulfills in a
masterly way the requirements specified, viz.: a
coined word that we can register as a trade-mark
and a name easy to remember and entirely simple
to pronounce. "DAY" suggests perfect light, and
"LO" means "Behold!" "See!"
The true significance, the living ideal of the relia
bility and service characteristic of our product will
hereafter find its expression in the new name,
I wish I might personally thank each of the half
million contestants and the millions of Eveready
friends and users who have contributed so earnestly
to the success of our search for a new name.

Portland Paper's Scheme Con
The Salem Business Men 's league Rl
their monthly meeting held lust evening
v.tut on record very positively on two
j'l-oposilioim. One wns that t lie league
most heartily endorsed the action of the
Patriotic league of the city iu its en
lenvors to raise funds and the other
was that its members as u body as well
as individually were opposed to being
solicited in any newspaper subscription
contest wherein the merchants are to be
asked to subscribe for a Vortlaud paper.
Any person who attempts to hold up
any merchant for a subscription to the
Portland paper in this automobile giv
ing away contest will be asked to see
the secretary of the league nnd get. a
card. The league most positively frowns
down on subscription contests of all
kinds, whether put on hy a Portland or
Salem paper, end incidentally the Cap
ital Journal was commended l'or stand
ing against such contests.
The trading; stamps bugaboo came in
for its share of discussion ntid the ef
forts that had been made to defeat any
legislation whereby the big companies
dealing in trading stamps could come
into tho state. The sum of $50 was
voted by tne league to pny part of the
expenses incurred in this work during
the sessions of the lite legislature.
Editor Duncan Talks.
Unbert ti. Duncan, managing editor
of the Oregon Merchants' Magazine and
secretnry of the Portland, Grocers' asso
ciation, made a talk on "Organiza
tion." The burden of his song was that
the local grocers or the business men of
any city could not go . through the
world without being organized and he
had the figures to show what well or
ganized business could accomplish. As
a shining example, he referred to the
big mail order houses which had things
so well organized that now almost every
farmer had a mail order catalog occupy
ing the main place on the center table
As a means of fighting the big mail
order houses, he suggested that a mer
chant should have in his store goods
from the mail order houses and his
own goods displayed together as an ob
ject lesson as to whether he could not
sell as cheap, taking info consideration
In discussing credit ratings, Mr. Dun
can thought that not onlv those who
Ujiwere of doubtful pay should be rated,
f l but even those who are regarded as
H I good for anything they want. He
El thought a man might possibly be rated
U j as all right for his grocery bill but not
H rated quite so prompt pay or millinery
M'and drygoodn nnd that every merchant
Jjiwns entitled to know of both ratings.
H Anyhow, Mr. Duncan claimed the two
W: great enemies to the retail merchant

that if the retail men of Salem or any
j other city were to fight these two evils,
it; could not be done by individual ef-
, forts but by close organization.
To arrange for an interesting pro
gram at the next monthly meeting u
