'" ' With this issue George Putnam becomes publisher of
tlfe Capital Journal, and the undersigned severs connec
tion with the paper. , ' ,
The past five years and a half have witnessed a won
derful growth on the part of the Capital Journal, and it
has been a pleasant experience for us. We have received
generous and considerate treatment from the people ot
Salem and the district of which it is the business center.
During that time we have attempted to give our readers
an honest, conservative paper, devoted solely to the ad
vancement of their interests in the discussion of those
Questions which affect the general welfare. Nobody but
&e publisher of the paper has had anything to say about
the policy of the Capital Journal and there has been no
power behind the throne to shape its course. We have
sought to be independent without being neutral upon any
issue worth while, and to make as good a newspaper m all
respects as the business of the field warranted.
I That the Capital Journal has filled its field is best
shown by the place it holds in thousands of homes and the
dependency people have come to place in it. . We do not
believe that all its readers have endorsed its editorial
views, but rather, take kindly to an honest and indepen
dent expression' of opinion; ; . : ! t
; We feel that Mr. Putnam will find a solid foundation
of public confidence and respect upon which an exper
ienced journalist may build a great newspaper as the
years go by. There is no better man for this particular
Work than he and he will succeed because there is a field
for a paper of state-wide influence in the Capital City,
f alem is growing, its business interests are rapidly ex
panding, and it will become one of the important cities

Producing moving pictures is the latest role in which
women are distinguishing themselves. . -
TwoNew York women have opened a studio and are
working hard on the production of the film picture as an
educational. element. They Relieve that anything worth
while seen, upon the screen ,. is of real and educational
value, and they make pictures to cover everything from
the workings of science in its mysterious ways to ath
letic feats, the proper method of carrying the body or the
most charming decoration of the south bedroom.
It is not an easy life nor an easy form of work these
women have chosen, but it is fascinating to a degree,
and as in everything else, ability improves with practice.
Perhaps the principal difficulty, since much of the
mechanical work already has been figured out by the
great movie producers, is the choice of subjects which
are at once educational, interesting and capable of trans
lation to the. film. These women are working, however,
with a success which shows, that here is another desir
able field open to women possessing originality and per-,anl n lettcrs cau cioss its borders

"What ho," exclaim the boarders, "bring forth the
measly lot of profiteers and hoarders, and let them all be
shot." The boarders' grub is scanty, it's slim and punk
indeed, in hostelry or shanty, wherever they may feed.
Their eyes become a river when they look around and see
a sickly slice of liver, a string bean and a pea. The board
ers' cheeks are sallow, their eyes are full of woe, their
waistlines show no tallow, they totter as they go. Their
lean ribs clank toegther and evf r, as they reel, they won

forth," exclaim the boarders, bent up with stomach ache,
"the profiteers and hoarders, and burn them at the stake."
The landlord says he's giving the utmost for the cash;
and boarders still are living on air and onion hash. In vain
the boarders forage for fodder they can eat; and there
are tons 1n storage of eggs and pies and meat. The na
tion's bins are busting with everything we need; and it is
most disgucsting that men for grub must plead, and pay
unholy prices for everything they get; oh, let us in three
