THE HOUSING PROBLEM.
The future of Salem depends upon the progressive
ness and vision of her citizens. Nature has supplied the
resources and the location to make this city the horticul
tural and agricultural capital of Oregon. Enterprises in
the making promise its industrial development. Only the
lethargy of the community can limit the growth of the
city and the development of the valley.
The great problem of Salem's present and future is
the housing problem. There are no houses for rent'and in
consequence Salem is daily losing population, industry is
crippled for lack of it and normal development retarded.
There is at the present time a deficit conservatively
estimated at 500 houses, and the deficit is daily growing
more acute. The large industrial plants in course of erec
' tion promise the needed payrolls to sustain additional
thousands in the future but homes must be provided.
The high price of lumber and the high wages of work
men have caused those who would otherwise go extensive
ly into the building business to delay operations in. the

hope of a restoration oi pre-war conaiuons dui mere is
small chance that building operations will be cheaper for
years to come. Building operations have been held up
throughout the world and until the void is filled, there is
little likelihood of reduction, and the high cost of build-
in er will continue for a long time.
What is Salem going to do to solve the housing prob-
jenw ' 1I individual DUiiaers are say 01 large scaie con
struction, concerted civic action should be taken, lest in
activity work hardship upon the community.
A similar problem is being solved in Yakima, Wash.,
where an association, with a capital of $250,000 has been
organized by business men, the stock subscribed for by the
public, to go directly into the home building business and
supply homes for rent or for sale.
JOY IN BERLIN.
ed like the morning red of a new dawn, ushering in a new
and happy epoch in history."
Amendments of the peace treaty in German opinion,
constitute its rejection, and the making of a separate
peace with Germany. This has all along been the aim and
object of the Senate objectors who have not hesitated to
prostitute patriotism for politics.
The language of the Senate report is not only hostile
to the peace treaty, but treats our Allies as though they,
and not Germany, were our enemies. It is not amend
ment, but rejection, that our Senators playing the Hun
game, seek. If the amendments demanded were secured,
other objections would be raised to the ratification.
Last winter the objectors wanted changes in the or
iginal draft. The President secured these changes, and
the Monroe Doctrine was recognized, a . unanimous vote
in council was secured and more stringent terms, given
uermany, as tne senators then demanded. But with the
original objections removed, four reservatiGns and forty
amendments are offered. If these are secured, which they
cannot be, forty other objections would be raised to aid

"I have more faith in Tanlac than
any medicine I have ever seen, and I'll
tell you why I say this,'' said C. J. Fo-
len, a well kaown mechanic who is em
ployed by the Southern fncifie Railway
Co., and who lives at 601 East 20th St.,
Portland, Ore., while talking to a laulae
representatives the other day. -
"I suffered from stomach trouble foi
three years or more." continued Mr.
Foloen, 'and wnen I commenced tak
ing Tanlu-c, I was so weak and ru:i down
that I was not able to do any woik at
all. At one time 1 vas in the hospital
for seven weeks, and after the very best
of treatment there. I was told that noth
ing but an operation would do me any
good, tunl tiiRi I would nave io submit
to it if I ever expected to be well again.
I refused to undergo the operation, and
was told then that thoy could do noth
ing more f Or me, so 1 pulled up and went
home. Well, aftei I got homo I began
to diet myself, thinking that might help
me, but I soon found that even nulk and
mush, nnd a soft cooked tgg would cause
gas to form on my stomach, and I would
have the worst cramping spells you have
ever heard of. I just kept on suffering
and getting weaker all the time until I
was just about all in.
"Then I heard about Tanlac, ana tn
great things it ra doing for so many
other people, and I bought a bottie and
commenced taking it. Well, 8ir, I fig
ured that Tanlac would give mo some
relief, but I ha,d no idea that it was
going to make such a clean sweep of
my troubles, and put me in the fine con
dition I am now in. Why, I have f ;ncd
twenty-nine pounds, nnd in a short time
I was free from pain and distress ni say
man on earth. My stomach troubles all
disappeared and my appetite came btk
in full force and up to this day, I can
hardly get enough to eat. Everything
I eat agrees wiih me, too, and wen
night comes on I can go to bed and Bleep

I have heard a learned professor say that Mars has
living folks, while another gifted guesser hailed his argu
ments as jokes. And they fussed around and wrangled
like a pair of locoed cats, and they got their wires all
tangled, and grew sore beneath their hats. Some indorsed
the learned professor, held as gospel his belief, some stood
up for t'other guesser, helping him to yawp and beef. And
the row became a riot, so the whole bunch went to jail,
where they had a frugal diet that was void of toast on
quail. You may climb the highest steeple with a telescope
in hand, and you cannot tell if people drill around on
Martian land. There's no earthly way of proving if inhab

chewing rags the livelong day, letting habits vain enmesh
us, when we should be baling hay. Whether Mai's has

For mnoT years while I wan perfecting toy
formula I studied and inrostigated the
laxative and cathartics on the market and
Iwc&me convinced that their main fault
traa not tbat they did not act on the bowels,
bat that their action was too violent and
drastic, and rpsct the system of the user;
which was due to the fact that they were
not thorough econgUin their action, some
simply acting on the upper or small intes
tines, while others would act only oa the
lower or large intestines, and that they
1. 1 most invariably - produced habit re
quiring augmented doses.
I beliered that a preparation to produce
the best effect must first tone the liver,
then act on the stomach and entire alimen
tary system. If this was accomplished, the
medicine would produce a mild, but
thorough elimination of the waste without
the utmal sickening sensation, and make
the user feel better at onoe.
After experimenting with hundreds of
different com pounds, I at last perfected the
formula that is now known as Batsts't
fWeiifr, which I truly believe goes further
and does moro than any laxative on tha
market today. The thousands of letters
from users have convinced me I was right,
and that the user of Nature's "smear
family medicine, even though he may have
us ol it for twenty-live years, never ha
to increase the dose.
My knowledge of medicine and the re
