Be Samed At The Annual
Election, February 8.
The annual meeting of members of
the Salem Commercial club will be held
on the evening of Wednesday, Jauuarj
8. At this meeting there will be elect
ed all officers for the year 1919. Nom
inations are to be made from the floor
and everyone holding a membership in
the club will be entitled to a vote.
To succeed Fred W. Steusloff, who
has served as president for two terms,
several names are favorably mentioned
but as no one appears to be making aA
effort to secure tho election, there is
a feeling that a man should be selected
who is familiar with the worn ut e

dent; Chas. H. Fisher, secretary; S. B.

Hamilton, L. J. Chapin and T. B. Kay.
In his cloction as King Biag, P. E. Ful
lerton is already elected a member of
the board of directors for the coming
year, succeeding Hal D. Patton.
Since the beginning of the war, the
work of the Commercial club has been
devoted largely to handling all war ac
tivities and the different mannt,c: f
tho club as well as tho clerical force
have dovoted most of their time to war
work. This was especially true for all
of the liberty loans and for the work
of the food administration, until within
a, few months ago. '
With the comine of the peace, era nA
the feeling that this part of the Wil
lamctte valley will experience a great
prosperity, there is an impression
among club members that the Salem
Commercial club should do its share in
attracting buyers to this vicinity.
