Band Concerts Voted
by People at Election
' Besides other momentous matters that
must be settled at the meeting of the
city council on the evening of Nov 30,
the city fathers will be confronted with
that of baud concerts.
The budget as prepared which will
come up for final passage Nov. 30, does
not include appropriations for baud con
certs next summer.
Ou Dee. 2, 1912, the citizens of Sa
lem voted in favor of public concerts
in the summer. It is ordinance No. 1156
and the title is "Appropriating Money
tor the (Support and Maintenance of a
Salem Band for the General Public".
Section 1, recites that the sum of $1500
or so much as mav be necessary shall
rorincoming be used out of the general fund not
otherwise appropriated. Section 2 of the

ordinance provides that the expenditure
of the money slmll be placed in the
hands of a special committee and that
it shall be their duty to enter iuto a
contract for the baud.
Now here is where the lawyer comes
in "to interpret the law. The ordinance
voted by the people Dec. 2, 1912, just
merely provides for the expenditure of
$1500 for a band, and this has been
complied with as this amount was ex
pended the following year. The lawyer
contends there is nothing in the ordin
ance providing that the amount must
be expended annually. Hence, the law
having been complied with in spend
ing $1500 for a band in 1915, there is
nothing in sight as to what should be
done during the summer of 1918.
A petition has been signed by many
of the leading business men of the city
asking that the band concerts be re
tained, but this petition didn't seem to
worry the city fathers to any great ex
tent at their last meeting when he band
concert proposition was passed up and
no provision made in the budget.

preparation, improved by the nddition

A well known downtown druggist
says it darkens the hair so naturally
and evenly that nobody can tell it has
been applied. You simply dampen a
sponge or soft brush with it and draw
this through jour hair, taking one
strand at .a time. By morning the gray
hair disappears, and after another ap

Portland Boy Now In France
Says Tobacco Is Great
The .Portland Journal prints a char
acteristic letter from irance as fol
"Another cigarette and a letter
from our friends that's', -all we
want," writes' a Portland boy who is
attached to the office of chief of gas
service with tho American expedition
ary force in France. The letter is from
Roy O. Compton to R. .!. Streicher, con
nected with Gicbisch & Joplin.
"If you fellows had as much desire
to hear from home as we have over
here," writes Coinpton, "or if you
could even half realize the desire for
mail that comes over each of us each
time the United States mail comes in
and wo get none, I am sure each and
every one of you would each and ev
ery week sit down and mail a letter to
each and every person you know who
is in the service.
"Madden, Parsons and myself from
the first district, and Finch from the
second Portland district, arc all work
ing for your Uncle Sammy on work wo
know nothing of, hardly ever before
heard of, although every one has some
vague ideas regarding the same work
ing longer hours than wo worked in
Portland, with less conveniences; sleep
ing on cots, washing in cold water,
eating our soup and dessert out of one
dish, taking a bath when the French
bath house has hot water and gener
ally while you lazy loafers won't let
us know whether Portland is on the
map or not.
"When you come, fill up your bar
rack hag with all the tobacco you can
get in it. Never mind about bringing
your extra shirt you will wear one
a couple of weeks longer than usual
and won't need but two, but bring
your own smoking. The French -weed
does not make a hit with any of the
boys over here."
The Oapitar Journal's tobacco fund
was started because the boys in Franco
need tobacco juore than periiaps any
other one thing and sometimes it is
hard to get out in the front lino
trenches, all reports agree.
The fund is growing slowly but stead

you printed a resolution against the
practice of carrying advertising for the
tobacco fund for our boys In the army.
j This resolution was printed under the
heading "Methodist Women Oppose To
bacco Fund." and would lead one to
believe that the women arc the only
ones opposed to this fund, when as a
matter of fact there was one man's
name with two ladies' signed to the
resolution and it had been adopted in
open meeting, both men and women
voting. Now, therefore, we, men, citiJ
zens of Salem and heads of families
want also to voice our protest against
this fund for the following reasons:
1. We are not in sympathy with tho
cigarette and feel that if such was sent
from home to the boys taht it would
have the effect of recommending them
to the boys and no doubt be the moans
