vrero tho seen
of a combined
ni-nfMurional and social Gathering
last evening, when a group of young
business women met to make plana for
the formation of a professional and
business women's club. After an en
- joyahle luncheon, the meeting came to
order under the leadership of Miss
Grace Smith, who gave a brief opening
talk, commenting upon the rapid de
velopment of woman's position in h
last few decades, and dwelling partic
ularly upon her rights and privilege
ia Oregon. The need of a club of this
kind was keenly felt by all the wo
men present and a number of valu
able suggestion were made as to it
organization. Cooperation with other ,
bodies in the city will be one of its
keynotes. (Especial mention was made
of the housing situation and the need
of the cooperation of the women of
tke city with ithe business men who are
trying to relieve the really desperate
situation. Remarking that Salem has at
present mo "slum" district, Miss
Smith voiced the fear that families in
poorer circumstances will bo forced to
resort to on-modern and probably un
sanitary districts if the case ia not re
lieved in the near future.
Dr. Mary C. Rowland was another
enthusiastic sneaker at the meeting,
dealing with the club idea from a pro-
resmonal woman standpoint.
To complete arrangements and bring '

show that reduced war time alcoholic
consumption has had a 'beneficial re
sult on the nation.
The German holds' up hi hands in
horror at the idea that America ha
gone "dry." He simply doesn't com
prehend. Nothing to drink f 'No, not a
thing. What are they thinking of in
America he asks.
On the other hand his own statistics
have proved to the German that alco
hol is a demon, destroying as it goea.
While statistics are not available for
the entire war period, and there are
no" figures for recent days, it develops
that in Prussia there were w n-
sanitv eases numberinir 6136 due to al
cohol, while the figures kept dropped
to 1M7 when the last accurate statis
tics were available.
In 1915 alcoholic insanity cases num
bered 3406; in 1916, 2469 cases, and in
1917. 1564 cases while deaths from al
coholism amounted as follows: 1914
917; 1915650; 1916271; 1917148.
Suicide has been reported on the in
crease in Germany, but figures are
lacking to prove this theory. During
the war, tne government Kept no sta
tistics to show where self destruction
stood. Since the revolution, however,
it is reported that many middle class,
pcoplo have been suicides. This is said
to be due to despondency over Ger
many's future; to the fact that some
of these middle class people have seen
their small savings of years eaten up
in the all consuming drop of the Ger
man "valuta;" and to a general indif
ference toward life, engendered by four
years of war.
Suicides in Uermany during
numbered about 15,000 while they drop
ped in 1914 by about 1000. At the same
time there appeared a smaller number
of cases of insanity in the German
asylums, lor .1913, there wore io2,jat
cases of insanity in Prussia, while in
1914 there were 149,699 cases; and
this number dropped in 1915 to 138,792
Reverting to the effect of alcohol
ism on the German vital statistics, it
may be pointed out that, duriug the
war, the Herman nation was snut on
from some of the stronger alcoholic
beverages 'slehnb.'pps" to; which it
had formerly been accustomed, while
its beer the national beverage went
down from above rwr percent alcohol
to about one percent or less.
The crmnu resents the idea of pro
hibition as an infringement on "per
sonal liberty" and says that it will
never eome here. But, it is to be noted
that only a few days ago a prohibition1
