It Is just little risky toting a pros
perous looking suit case now-a-days as
the police force are inclined to loon
with suspicion on anT traveling bag or
suit ease coming from the wet fields
of Cilifornia. As to whether an officer
ofthe law has the right to investinte
a suit case traveling north, there is
chapter 141 of the general laws of Uro-
eon for 1917, page 179. Part of this
chanter reads that if an officer "has
reasonable information that intoxicat
ing liquors are being unlawfully carried
he may search without warrant. "About
tho onlv thine that cannot be searched
is a train, but even cars may be searcn
ed if one of the train crey invites an
officer to look around. Then the police
have the legal right to ask any one to
open a Buit case for examination and
to ask one to step over to the police
station and talk lt over. There are
somo who rely on the constitution of
the United States to protect their
riehts, but from past experience in Sa
lem, tho constitution was of no avail
when the police officer asked any one
to come along to the police station.

While real estate is not especially
booming in 8alem and vicinity, yet
thero is a strong undorcurrent of
strengthening prices. This is notico
ablo, real estate men say the sales

considerably within the past six months
Fruit tracts aro also being held for bet
ter prices and many strangers have
been in tho city the past month looking
for investments. Ferdinand Kurz a
few davs ago bought as an investment
a ten acre improved tract three and ono
half miles from Salem on the Jeffer
son road from Walter L. Hatch. Not
withstanding the fact that no mouey
is spent for advertising purposes nor
any effort made in that line, nor any
available literature to be had sotting
foith tho advantages of the Willamette
cinuate, the general impression is that
Salem and vicinity is just on the verge
of a lot of prosperity and all in spte
of the natural disposition of the old
timers and conservatives to indirectly
discourage new comers.

days are really getting longer even if
the sun is later in getting np as it is

Owing to the lateness of the report ol
many tax levies and of the public utili

levies are all now in excepting from

Salem, and from the cities of Scotts

.DECEMBER, 1. 1918,
A food map of Europe today shows
not a single country in which the fu
ture does not hold threat of serious
difficulties and only a small part which
Is not rapidly approaching the famine
point With the exception of the
Ukraine only those countries which
have maintained marine commerce
have sufficient food supplies to meet
actual needs until next harvest, and
even in the Ukraine, with stores accu
mulated on the forms, there Is famine
In the large centers of population.
Belgium and northern France, as
well as Serbia, appear on the hunger
map distinct from the rest of Europe
because they stand in different rela
tion from the other nations to the peo
ple of the United States. America has
for four years maintained the small
war rations of Belgium and northern
France and la already making special
efforts to care for their Increased
after-the-wajr needs, which, with those
of Serbia, must bt Included in this
plan, are argent In the extreme and
must have immediate relief.
The gratitude of the Belgian nation
for the help America has extended to
her during the war constitutes the
strongest appeal for us to continue our
work there. The moment the German
armies withdrew from her soil, and she
was established once more in her own
seat of government the little nation's
first thought was to express her grati
tude to the Commission for Relief iu
Belgium for preserving the lives of
millions of her citizens.
Germany, on the other hand, need
not figure In such a map for Ameri
cans because there is no present Indi
cation that we shall be called on at all
to take thought for the food needs of
Germany. Germany probably can care
for her own food problem If she is
given access to shipping and Is enabled
to distribute food to the cities with
dense populations, which are the trou
England, France, the Netherlands
and Portugal, all of which have been
maintained from American supplies,
have sufficient food to meet immediate
needs, but their future presents seri
ous difficulties. The same is true of
Spain and the northern neutral coun
triesNorway, Sweden and Denmark
whose ports have been open and who
have been able to draw to some degree
upon foreign supplies.
. Most of Russia is already Is the
throes of famine, and 40,000,000 people
there are beyond tha possibility of
help. Before another spring thou
sands of them Inevitably must die.
This applies as wen to Poland and
practically throughout the Baltic re
gions, with conditions most serious In
Bohenlla, Serbia, Itoumnnln and
Montenegro have already reached the
famine point and are suffering a heavy
toil of death. The Armenian popula
tion Is falling each week as hunger
takes its toll, and in Greece, Albania
and Roumania so serious are the food
shortages that famine is near. ;A1-.
though starvation Is Dot yet imminent,
Italy, Switzerland, Bulgaria and Tur
key ore In the throes of serious strin
gencies. In order to fulfill America's pledge
In world relief we will have to export'
every ton of food which can be han
dled through our ports. This means at
the very least a minimum of 20,000,000
tons compared with 6,000,000 tons pre
war exports and 11,820,000 tons ex
ported last year, when we were bound
by the ties of war to the European
If we fall to lighten the black spots
on the hunger map or If we allow any
portions to become darker the very
peace for which we fought and bled
will be threatened. "Revolt and anarchy
Inevitably follow famine. Should this
happen we will see In ether parts of
Europe a repetition of the Russian de
bacle and our fight for world peace
will have been In vain.
