No Wheat Flour At AH To Be
: Sold After This Week,
Marion county will go on a wheat
loos basTis foT ten weeks after the stores
rkwo Saturday evening of this week,
Announced V, W. Steusloff, county
iood administrator today.
Notiieea are being sent out asking all
(dealers to ri irain from the sale ot
wheat flour until further nptice after
Saturday Juno 15.
It is understood that Clackamas
(county Will also be put on a wheatless
liaais after Saturday, making the whole
State of Oregon wheatless beginning
The bakers will be permitted to bake
o tho 60-J0 basis, and logging camps
und hospitals will not be included in
the wheatless call. But two other States
an the union are wheatless, Texas and
Montana. In Texas tho new crop is al
ready being harvested.
Bakers will bo asked not to increase
their output after' next Saturday. At a
meeting held several days ago at the
Commercial club, an effort was made
toj put Marina county on a wheatless
' tms but tlie consensus of opinion
among growers and. bakers of tho
county, that ns long as Hoover did not
tall for a whontless nation, there was
no real reason why Marion county or
Oregon should go wheatless. The gro
cers at that meeting decided to put
the county on a 25-75 basi3.
It is understood that thus action of
Marion county was not satisfactory to
.W. B. Ayers, state food administrator,
wpeicially as ho had sent one of his of
fice lawyers here to whip the growers
and fcakers in line with his idea of

Decided that when Alderman Elliott
agreed to rent the city paving plant to
the county on a basis of 7'i- cents per
superficial yard paved, ho placed the
price too low.
'Ihat the city had practically barter
ed, away its legal rights when the coun
cil petitioned the-public service com

That circus parades were all right and
that the people of Salem should not be
prevented lroui seeing shows, carnivals
and street' parades.
. Accepted the resignation of Alderman
Lloyd T. Bigdon and elected mayor elect
C. E. Albm to fill the unexpired term,
on motion of Alderman Prank Ward.
The bridge on South Commercial is
in need of repairs and the street com
missioner was authorized to buy 100,000
foet of lumber. There was some talk
of cutting down the width of tho bridge
but it was finally decided to plank
it as it now stands.
Tho city has a paving plant that cost
$4,500. Alderman K'Uott thought IVi
cents a superficial square yards was
rent enough to charge the eounty. Ward
objected saying that a few years ago,
the county had used the same paving
plant paying 1.5 cents a square yard. One
of the aldermen had it figured out that
if the county used the plant 60 days at
the 7Vi cents, it would owa the city
$ 1,500, the cost of the plant. The street
committee will finally decide whether
Urged For Re-election
At the meeting of the legislative and
taxation departments of the. Commercial
club, held last evening, T. B, Kay was
elected to succeed E. T. Barnes. As di
rector for th mercantile department,
which includes the Businessmen's Lea'
gue, C, S. Hamilton was elected to suc
ceed P. E. Fullcrton. Other departments
will elect this week, all elections to be
ratified at ths annual open meeting of
the club to be held on the evening of
Friday Juno 21.
It is more than probable that F. W.
Slenslolf will be asked to eontinue as
president of the club for another year
especially as he is familiar with the
work the elub hag ben doing in eon
ncction with war sen-ices. It hag not
beer, customary to ask a president of
the club to serve a second term, but
'.here is a- general feeling on acocunt
of wsr enditoins, that Mr. Steusloff
should eontinue with the work for an
ether year. ,
OVEN, STANDS ON SANITARY BASE.
10 cents a square for rent is proper.
The plant could not tvo replaced on the
market for doublo tho sum and Ward
thought i0 cents a right price.
Mayor Keyes called for some atiicr
men who had voted in favor of petition
ing tho Public Service Commission ask
ing for an investigation of gas ratios to
make a motion to rescind the action of
the council. This was done aud tho coun
cil now stands as not taking any action
when the matter comes before.the Com
mission. A 'iecision handed down by
Judge Bean was read, showing where
in a city bartered away all its rights by
so petitioning the Commission.
Three bids were received for the
city 's improvement bonds of $3,633.00,
drawing 6 per cent du,s in ten years.

week's vacation on full pay. The ordin
ance 'licensing hotels came up for tho

for appropriating $d00 to maintain fday
grounds this summer.
The bill prohibiting carnivals, shows
str.eet parades and such was about to
pass when Alderman Ward said that tho
council was getting old maidish wben it
would not permit parades. Itatncr tuan
to permit parades but cut shows out
of the streets of Salem, the council in
definitely postponed action on tho bill.
Alderman WiUon remarked that if tho
council wanted street shows and circuses
it could grant licenses and if it didn't
want them, it could retuse snows me
use of tha streets. Lloyd Eigdon, the
retiring alderman was called the watch
dog of the treasury aud Ward said it
gave him great pleasure in nominating
Mr. Al'oin as alderman.

Tho war saving campaign has a
three fold purpose, i'mt: to teach pa
triotitim and to put into tho lands of
tho pnoplo a practical method of co
operation in the world ytrmgle for de
mocracy. A consciousness on the part
of every man, woman and child of his
or her individual responsibility for
ending the war victoriously for Am
erica.. Second: the second purpose 0
the V. 8. S. is tm inculcate the habi
of thrift. When tho nation's very ex-
istence isi dependent upon the savings
of its workers, the purchasing of un
necessary luxuries becomes almost
treasonable. Third: tht third aim in
offering tlie W. S. S. is to securo from
the sale of the stamps two billion dol
lars which congress authorized the see
rotary of the treasury to borrow for
war purposes. The method thus chosen
is the result of tho aennand of the peo
ple for a smaller investment than is
available in tho liberty bond issues. It
is the "baby bond" idea for the bsv
ling housewife, laboring men and chil
dren, also for persons of larger avail
'alblD capital. It is a good investment
for everybody, and a patriotic duty to
buy stamps ami thus help end the war

For the purpose of trying to maka
the irrigation service more satisfae
tory tha city will be divided into tw

irate only on Monday. Wednesday. Fri
day and Sunday, and the houses whicn -bear
odd Sumbo-rs on tha -streets irri
gate only on Tuesday, Thursday, SaA
