What it means
Salem was the first eitv in Ik aisle
'as far as we can learn, that planned
ton a celebration. A movement was
srarrea several mourns ago to provide
a Home Cuming for the beys who went
to war. Money was raised and all
arrangements made to hold a grand
event. Some on suggested that we
postpone the Home Coining until tha
4th of July. Thinking that more peo
ple could get away on the 4th than on
I any other date it was decided to wait.
The word was sent broadcast that Sa
i lent would hold a Home Coming on
the Fourth. So far no other town or
j city ia this part of Oregon had plan
I ed on celebrating. A number of little
celebration have come to life since
.that time, but Salem was first. What
ever inspired these other celebration
is of small consequence and Salem has
already forgotten that there are other
celebrations and will do all in her
power to make this celebration and
Home Coming the biggest event in the
history of the capital , of the state.
The city has opened it 's doors to every
man who wore a uniform and made
everything possible free for them. We
want thctu here where we honestly feel
you will get1 the most entertuinraent
and where you will be provided with
everything you can possibly wish for
or expect. The Salem Commercial
Club, the War Mothers and the War
Community Service are all working for
your entertainment end equally for the
entertainment for your friends.
Attitude of the People ....
Every person in Marion and Polk
counties are invited to come to this
Homo Coming. To my mind the first
Fourth of July wu up to this time
the most memorable event in the his
tory of these United States. This
Fourth of July comes next and we
should deem it our duty and pleasure
to help. The people of Salem are work
inn hard and have everything planned
to make this a Red Letter day. Every
person in the two eountios and any
ono in tho state who desires to come
is welcome and invited to be here and
assist in entertaining the boys. Spec
ial written invitation have been sent
to all the boy whose names eonld be
secured. If you know of a aoldior,

The On Thought
If you had a son or a 'brother or
father or undo or neplurw or friend
who woro the uniform and hat person
was attending this Home ('online where
he ean be shown that, his people ap
preciate linn and what ho did, you
would make nn extra effort to help.
Ion have just that reason for benin
present in JSnlem. Home soldier or
some one who woro a uniform will b?
here snd your p'osenr.e is necessary at
this time to make the Home Coining
what it should he. Yon can't welconis
the boy by selfishly staying at home.
Arrange to come and celebrate with
him. You owe it to him and you owe
it to yourself. If your son was re
turning from thelfront, you would drop
everything anil meet him at the train.
Ho would feel hurt if you were not
there to greet him. Come one eome
