TOR ALL IS SLOGAN
FOR LIBRARY DRiVE
"Egual privilege for every -man, wo
man and child in Marion county, ' ' is
the purpose of the proposed county li
brary. This can be accomplished by a
central library maintained in Salem by
the county, which shall be a distribut
ing center for all towns, communities
' school districts and individuals.
Under this system, the towns will
hare buildings, rooms, or perhaps only
shelves and tables in a part of the room
as tho situation may require or permit.
The school districts and any community
that desires them will have traveling li
braries to supplement their own. Indi
viduals will borrow through the ncorcst
town library any books that the central
library contains or can borrow. All of
the work will be under the supervmon
of -a county library assistant who. will
give her personal attention to the needs
of oaoh community. The advisory ser
vice will be invaluable to the school dis
tricts as well Sis the towns, for tho
small sums afforded to the districts
by the county School Library Fund are
' too often spent for books that do not
fit tho immodiate -needs of the respec
tive communities and books are purchas
ed which lie idle many months of thy
year, whereas a system of book ex
changes could obviate this waste.
These are some of tho wnys in wbim
a county library would work to supply
wholesome information and pleasant re
creation for evoryono. It is estimated
that tho work can be done on three
tenths of a mill tax. This is less than
town in the community which supports
a library Is paying at present. The city
of Salem is the only part of tho couuty
that has Its book needs at all adequate
ly supplied, and its funds havj novel
permitted keeping the book collection
broad and up to date. The annua! ap
propriation of tho city council of Salem,
is between 4 and 5 tenths of n mill,
which is unusually low for city li
brary. Woodburn is one of these.
The reason that tho new plan can bo
carried through at so low a rare is that
the expenses as woll ns the advantage
will be- equalized among the people of
the county. The rural communities whicii
havo had only such library facilities
can bo secured by mailfrom the state
library, will have books made as con
venient to their use as is possible. They
. in tnrn will share with thoir town
neighbors in paying about 20 cents in
taxes on a thousand dollars worth, of
property. - -
It is estimated that one book per in
habitant would bo a suitable library
supply for a town. As soon then as suf
ficient books: could be purchased each
town would be supplied with a shifting
collection reaching that number to sup
plement those'which the town mas al
ready own. According to this estimate
Silrorton would have a.deposit of prob
ably' of 1500 books housod and served
to its iiblic at a cost of probably $340.
Woodburn would have about the same
service. Stayton would receive about
700 books ota cost in taxes of $116.
Salem's share in tho tax would amount
to $3650, for which the citizens would
reccivo tho same service now given at
the public library with the advantage
of a much larger choico of books.
The plea for a county library was
started in Silvcrton where there has
never been a public fund to run the li
brary. Woodburn, which has a library
building but small funds aside from the
exptuses of running the building, added
ia voice, and, as the movement spread,
Stayton, Aurora, Gervais. through thoir
representatives voiced tho same senti
ments In the presentation of the need
to the county court. ThS county commit
tee of which Mrs. Hugh Latham of Sil
vcrton' is chairman is now trying to
reach all parts of tho county with the
news of what tho movement is and what
advantages it offers.

and noted marine, and including some of
the most influential men in the United
States has for its matchmaker Tex

motors m the world.
Under the present chaotic conditions,

ed into sectional classes and kinds such
as the eastern lumbor class, the eastern
textile class, etc. Each class will be
given heavyweight, middleweight, light
weight and bantomweight champion
ships. Belts to be awarded to the win
ners by the club will be augmented by
prizes of scholarships veducationnl tours,
pensions and, the like that will not do
stroy the amateur rating of the win
ners. Among1 the belts already donated are
the following: heavyweight champion
ship of the eastern state lumber indus

division. The final -bouts will be stag
ed beforo 'the International Club in a
$500,000 club house which is to be
built in New York "this, winter. -.
Major Biddle, the-sponsor and. orig
inator of the idea believe that box
ing is in the zenith of its popularity
now, especially among , the. industrial
classes. He is' of the op'clun that many
returned soldiers whr saw the physical
advantages of boxing exemplified in
the army trill be anxious to continue
participation in the sport if it is put
on a ;ood clean foundation. It is the
purpose of the club to make this pos
In addition to the industrial classes,
the club has completed plans for similar
contests in the army navy and the
Now York police and firo departments
in which the winners will be pitted
against the champions of the respective
classes in England. ,
The club lists among its membors
prominent bankers, jurists, politicians
army and navy chiefs and sportsmen.
It has unlimited financial resources ami
tho prospects of success in the venture
seems very bright. , : j. .-.
