American a Labor
Mission Sends Greeting
London, May 22 'To tine American
people I can say:
"We are proud of the part w are
playing in the war and I urge the
speeding np of every war necessity, so
the terrible eonflkft may be successful
ly concluded as quickly as possible."
This message was delivered tot the
United Press today by James Wilson,
head of the American labor mission
which lias just concluded a tour ef
Great Britain and France.
"The American labor mission is now
en route home," Wilson said. "We
have witnessed the war efforts of
Great Britain and France, and I ean
say that every rewraree at their com
mand is being utilized in speeding up

MEET TO DECIDE
Hughes and Gregory Go Ahead
With Preparations For
By L. C. Martin
Washington, May 22. Granted full
authority by the senate to investigate
aircraft production and every other
phaso of war department work, the sen
ate military affairs committee met this
afternoon to determine whether to hold
its aircraft inquiry in abeyance.
Senator Chamberlain, committee
chairman, indicated that "developments
during the day" might result in the
committee deciding that for the present,
at least, it will not investigate along
lines parallel to the department of jus
Chamberlain was to place before the
committee the new developments and
ask tlw committee to decide.
iu any event the sub-committee on
air craft will bo named and even if it!
does not plunge at once into an inquiry j
will visit aircraft factories, gathering.
data which will be used either in the
committer's own probe or by the de
partment of justice.
The committee today will uecide on
its contention that an investigation
should be made in spite of President
Wilson's expressed view that congres
sional investigation is unnecessary jn
view of the appointment of Charles E.
Hughes to assist the department of jus
tice in its probe.
Washington, Mav 22. Attorney Gen
eral Gregory and Charles Evans Hughes
have determined upon a far more sweep
ing investigation of the aircraft produc
tion program that at first planned
and as a result the senate military com
mittee probably will defer its action
in the matter determined upon today.
The Gnegory-Hughes probe will not
be limited merely to charge of "dis
honesty" against the aircraft board,
but will be a comprehensive inquiry to
detormine whether there is need for
civil suits as well as criminal. At its
conclusion there will be a complete re
port of its findings for the American

Kansas City, Mo., May 22. "I love
Thus did Mrs. Bose Pastro Stokes, en

leged disloyal utterances, on cross-ex.
amination, define her view of patriot
"I do not believe in patriotism inso.
far as it pertains to loving just one
country," she said.
Mrs. Stokes declared that her letter
to the Kansas City Star denying that
she had publicly made an appeal for
support of the government in its war
aims was not intended to create uisloy

indictment against her was based.
She denied that she opposed the gov
"1 am not opposed to the attitude of
the government in the war, my oppo
sition being only to the capitalists "who
are deriving profit and controlling tW.
government. ' '
Government attorneys quoted a
speech Mrs. Stokes made in Minneapo
lis last year as follows:
"I have always repudiated America
and looked upon it as one of tb3 most
oppressive nations. I would not rise to
the national anthem or saluto the sture
and Stripes. If I had to choose between
rising to this anthem or standing up
against a wall and being shot i would
choose the lattet"

Salem Bridge Work
Is Progressing Steadily
The State Highway Engineers office
says the work on the steel bridge is
progressing satisfactorily and rapidly.
There has been some trouble with the
air compressor which furnishes the
power for running the riveters but this
it is expected will be done away with
today. Two spans are up and bolted
and are ready for the riveters. The
third span will be ready for them be
fore the end of the week. The falso
work for supporting the steel is all in
place. I'olk county is having the
fill made on the west approach and
this work is well in hand, and will be
completed when the bridge is. On the
east approach a beautiful cement rail
ing is b.'iiig made and this will have
a length of 360 feet on each side of the
roadway. It is made of white cement
and white sand brought from California
and will add materially to the appear
ance of the structure. It is expected
the bridge will be ready for traffic by

Albany P. O.Ei Makes
Vests For Aviators
Chapter O, of the Albany P. E. O.,
claims ito be the only organization
east cf New York city doirwr a certain
kind of patriotic, work, that of mak
ing vests for aviators out of eld kid
gloves, parts of old shoes and in fact
any old kind of leather.
And not only has the Alt) any chap
ter been making the vests, but they
have ft dozen or more with them here
today in Salem, just to show their pa
triotic sisters what ean be done with
old gloves, shoes and scrap leather.
These vests are on exhibition in the
Meyers .department) store patriotic
Some time aso the suggestion was
made to the women of A5bany that
what the aviators really needed was
vests of lea'her, as they are exposed
to the colds of the upper air, and or
dinary woolen garments were not adapt
ed to this service.
The government has recognized that
leather will keep out more cold than
wool, but has not been able to prop
erly supply aviators. Hcwe the Al
bany cha(iter has been giving its timo
to not only the collection rf old leath
er scraps but to the making of vests
and) now has 85 to its credit.
So mueh favorable comment has bees
caused by ithe display of the avia'ors'
vests, that it is probalble the P. E. O.
haiters in the Btato win take up as
their special patriotic work the col
lection of leather and the making of
vests. In the east, those assoeuntml
with the biuife have become interested
in ttiirt work.
A look into the patriotic window of
the Meyers department store will show
just what can be doae frcm old gloves,
shoes, and scraps of leather in the way
of making vests for the birdmen.
