New York, April 22. There should
bo no undue alarm over the spurt of
speed the Giants have unsuspectingly
turned loose on the wild baseball tans.
It was to be expected, all things e'.u-sidc-.cd,
in the light of the way the
first stanza of the 1918 National lea
gue schedule was set up.

i'rcoklyn Dodgers and the Boston
Braves. The Hiaves still are guests in

members of the jiresiuent ' cabinet una

consideration this summer throughout
the country, although of course, nothing
will be done to extend the present
school year into the coming summer
Barley O. 'White, chairman of the
school board thought the 48 weeks plan
might work out iu the cities, but hard
ly adapted to towns like Salem, espec
ially where tho boys are needed for
farm work and the early fruit seasons.
Director E. T. Barnes could seo no

Power to take a hill, and power to pass the other fellow
are still claimed by many car makers; but here's a car that
puts such expressions into the dark ages of automobihng.
It is the current Chalmers, equipped with the famous
i "Hot-Spot" and "Ram's-Horn" Manifold, which wrings from
j gas more power than was ever taken out of gas before.
1 But not merely brutal power (for that it has), but a
j newer kind, a softness of power that is as thrilling to bear
i witness to as the technique of a great musician.
Accomplished how? By those two great devices: a Hot
Spot", which fairly cooks the gas, then "cracks it up fine as a
powder", and the "Ram's-Horn" Manifold which "sets it
: down" in the combustion chambers with celerity and with
out disturbance. , . .
So that when the spark touches it off, it gives nothing
but power; soft, harnessed, controlled power that you will
never forget once you have had its feel.

nectioii with their activities on the
western front. This does not take into
account the motorcycles necessary for
training purposes at tho various can
tonments iu this country. Possibly 1,5
000 would be a fair estimate of the rno-
'toreycles which will be required for the
cantonments when the machines needed
for the use of officers and orderlies is
added to the actual training machines.
Ono renson for tho large number of
motorcycles iu uso by the warring na
tions of Europe, in fact the main reason
is the remarkable economy of operation
of the motorcycle. Iu tho hands of a
trained man a motorcycle will average
00 to 70 miles per .gallon of gasoline.
No wonder the tillies early in this war
saw tho great possibilities of tho motor
cycle toward conservation! of that all
iinportaut commodity, gasoline.
Possibly the use of the motorcycle by
the dispatch rider is the largest use to
which the motorcycle has been put in
the war. Next to this the motor machine
gun corps probably are using the most
I motorcycles, rext in order is the use
I of tho motorcycle in the signal corps,
where its use is increasing every day.
I Uu the western front largo numbers
of motorcycle ambulances are now in
;Use. Most of these are designed to car
ry a single stretcher, which is mounted
i between the motorcycle and the side-
i car wheel. Home of the latest motorcycle
a.nbulatiees, however, are built iu a
'doubly dock style, which permits the
(carrviug of two.
j The motorcycle and sidecar offers
'some very distinctive features for nu
ambulance, for this combination can
pick its way over almost any kind of
; road, or, if necessary, it can travel
across country where not even a trail
I exists. It can dodge shell craters, and,
lowing to the light weight of tho motor
cycle and sidecar (about 500 pounds)
it can traverse the muddiest roads,
where heavier vehicles would bo hope
