A STRIKELESS CITY.
, It, is the ambition of the Commercial Club and the
aspiration cf the citizens to make Salem a strikeless city.
.To this end the Welfare, Commission has been organized
to arbitrate all Jabor controversies and establish wage
scales.; " ' ' :
A strikeless city is one where both labor and capital
get a square deal, where both the employer and employee
are actuated by a sense of justice and fairness and are
willing to give and take, where there is mutual recog
nition of rights and the rule of reason prevails.
A strikeless city is sought for by both the manufac
turer ana laoorer ana both prosper in it and their pros
perity is reflected iri the community. If Salem is able to
establish such conditions, and to maintain them, her
future is assured for both industry and population will
There should be no place in Salem for the radical Bol
shevik agitator, whose aims are really political revolution
ana tne overthrow of the government, who under the
camouflage of social welfare preaches the gospel of force
ana practices tne creea ot sabotage. Nor should there be
room for the arrogant autocrat who treats his employes as
feudal serfs, refuses to remedy their wrongs and repud
iates their right to collective bargaining.
The cost of living has increased alarmingly since the
outbreak of the war in 1914. Some of this increased cost
is due to fortune hunting profiteers, and more of it due
to the world shortage of materials and supplies caused by
the withdrawal of tens of millions of people from useful
production for five years. Until the void is filled, con
ditions will be abnormal, and only industry and increased
production can fill the void.
; We are entering a new era the old order perished in
tne war. We are establishing a new standard of value-'--a
new value for the dollar not yet standardized or stabil
ised. The dollar will never buy as much as it did, the cost
ot living will never sink back to the old level or commod
ities sell again at their former prices. It is the part of
wisdom to recognize conditions and adjust ourselves ac
cordingly. Industrial harmony will increase production and help
tm world in reconstruction, and a strikeless city means
industrial harmony. - '

of laziness and comfort circled nic in.

There was a rough white envelope

It read: : : '

Oakland Sensible Six
This new Oakland Sensible Six represents the most effective combination
of high power, light weight, full comfort and definite economy yet accom
plished in a motor car.
.- - In it are embodied the ripe experience and the expert manufacturing
ability of the eighth largest automobile producer in the world.
, It is an all-family, all-purpose car simple in design, strong in .construc
tion, exceedingly powerful in action--capable of enduring severe and con
stint daily service with a minimum, of wear and upkeep cost.
Oakland owners' records show for it such economies as from 18 to 25
miles to the gallon of gasoline under ordinary driving conditions, and from
8,000 to 12,000 miles from the oversize tires with which it is regularly equip
' In all its fundamentals this new Oakland Sensible Six is a continuation of
the car upon which Oakland has specialized for two years.
Today, not one part or detail of it remains untried or unproven.

There's our policy in a nutshell. .
First When the customer comes in, find
out what HE wants. Give him satisfac
tion at the lowest charge consistent with
a good, thorough job. V
Second Tell him how to prevent bat
tery trouble: We're not anxious to repair '
his battery, except to make it last longer.
Third When he really needs a new '
battery wc want him to buy it from us,
naturally, and to buy a Wtllard-with -Threaded
Rubbei Insulation because that
battery will li : longer and give him lesi
occasion for ;nse on repairs than tiny '
