And now comes the warning that it
will be especially injurious to view the
eclipse next Saturday with the naked
eve. Direct sunlight has a destructive
effect on the retina and blonds sd
those with light colored irides are af
fected more than others. Ordinary tint
ed glasses do not furnish sufficient pro
tection. It requires a deeply colored
glnss or better still, a piece of smoked
glass. A piece of broken window pane
and a match or candlo to smoke the
glass is all that is necessary. The best
piotcction is afforded by a pioce of de
veloped photographic film.
Triday and Saturday of this wek,
G. F. Alexander, U. S. marshal of Port
land, will be in the city to assist in
registering all alien men in order that
they may approach within half a mile
of the armory. If German aliens do not
register hero during the two day, they
will be obliged to go to Portland. This
regWtration does not apply to women.
Tho United States mnrshal will be at
the police headquarters for the two
days. This registration has nothing to
do' with any oth?r registration requir
ed of aliens. It applies to those who
may come within ualf a mile of the ar
mory. As this distance practically covers
the "down-town business and official sec
tion, it mans that every German alien
who expects to come to Salem at any
tiinr must register. There is a penalty
for not registering.
