The Roosevelt highway proposition on the special
election ballot is one of the reconstruction measures that
should receive the serious consideration of the voter. The
fact that these bonds will be taken care of entirely by the
automobile license fund, and that the federal government
will match the money expended dollar for dollar are strong
points in its favor,
More than this is the fact that such an enterprise,
while providing work during the reconstruction period will buying, the avoidance of waste, and safe investment. This
ooen and develop the rich coast country, adding millions
ot uoiiars to tne taxaoie property vaiuaiion 01 me suae.
This highway will be tapped from the central Willamette
valley by the shortest route to the coast and the best road
of all, that extending directly westward from Salem,
through Folk and Yamhill counties to Tillamook bay. This
not only affords the vacationist and tourist a visit to the
coast over a road only a few hours in lenght of time, but
the hay and feed raised in the valley may be transported
direct to the dairy ranches of the coast situated along
the proposed Roosevelt highway.
As a reconstruction policy we would prefer the plan
of building permanent roads to that ., of constructing
buildings at state institutions. - ; -
"America will not go Bolshevist," said Dr. Frank
Crane in a recent speech, "and for a very simple reason
we don't want it."
And there you have the gist of the situation. It has
been demonstrated clearly enough in Seattle, in Boston,
in Cleveland, in New York and wherever else the pre
sumptuous "Reds" have tried to force this alien system on
America. A few men in this country nearly-all aliens
want Bolshevism. The overwhelming majority do not
want it, and will not stand for any effort to cram it down
their throats.
Some of the deluded radicals still fancy themselves
martyrs, persecuted by police and held from their mission
W iron force. They are dead wrong. The police power is
wily one little manifestation of the big thing thaU'cally
l:jeps Bolshevism suppressed in America the instinctive
opposition of the scores of millions of natives and assim
ihted aliens.
It is clear enough, when once you start thinking about
it, why this big majority, the real Ameriran people, is
dead set against Bolshevism or any other formal Socialis
es program. Dr. Crane puts it about like this:
"Granting for the sake of argument that Socialism is
v perfect system of government we don't want perfec-
ideal condition?
Most of us are weighted down by shackles of circum
stances which hamper our every movement. Our progress
toward our own ideals of liberty and happiness is pain
ful and slow. Unmet obligations, the worry over what
will become of us in our old age, the anxiety over seeing
that our children are given a proper start in life, armed
with proper weapons for battling with the world all
these hamper our freedom.
We can be free, rree from the fear of want and all
these material worries and anxieties which bind us down.
There is a royal road to freedom. It is thrift. Thrift
will give us independence of all about us, freedom to go
where we please, do what we please and be what we

Catarrh is a condition of the blood
and can not be cured by local appli
( cations of sprays and douches; this
has been proven by the thousands who
have vainly resorted to this method
of treatment.
Caiarrh should not be neglected or
experimented with. The wrong treat
ment is valuable time lost, during
' which the disease is getting a firmer
hold upon its victim, and making it
more difficult for even the proper
treatment to accomplish results.
iThough Catarrh makes its first ap
pearance in the nostrils, throat and
air passages, the disease becomes more

trying days of the war, and which should become a per

This is the thrift that will make millions free if they

Dr. Mendelsohn
Opens Offices
In Portland
The thousands of satisfied patients of Dr. M. P.
Mendelsohn, who "Fits Eyes Correctly", will be glad
to learn that his services are again available by sim
ply visiting his new offices in Portland. '
Dr. Mendelsohn practiced his profession continuous
ly in Salem for nearly 10 years and is one of the most
widely known and esteemed Opticians in the State.
Ill health compelled him to relinquish his practice in
Salem and he went to California for rest and recu
peration. Having recovered his health he has re
turend to Oregon and opened attractively appointed
offices in the Failing Buliding, Portland. His new
quarters are on the fourth floor, directly over the
railway ticket offices.
Dr. Mendelsohn, extends a cordial invitation to his
friends, patrons and acquaintances from both Polk
and Marion Counties to visit hi.s new offices and
make their headquarters there while in Portland.
Patrons will be given the same careful attention re
ceived in Salem offices.
If you are so unfortunate as to break your glasses,
riiail the broken pieces to Dr. Mendelsohn and he will
return your glasses the same as new.
