"Doing the Impossible" is the cap
tion of a very interesting article in
a recent copy of System, and it tells
of a wonderful change brought about
in the city of Salem, Washington, by
the merchants working together and
how they organized a Chamber of
Commerce. Since a movement has
been started in Clovcrport to rc-or-

If those merchants out in Salem
can accomplish "the impossible," the
merchants of Clovcrport can too.
"Just a few years ago Salem, Wash
ington, did comparatively little to
draw business from the nearby farms.
But now Salem and its farmers work
together. Here's how the change was
"Formerly, the farmers bought most
of their supplies from distant cities
and disposed of their garden truck in
a large town 100 miles away. Vege
tables raised within five miles of
Salem went first to the town down
the line and then came back to the
Salem merchants with the original
price almost doubled.
"Then some of the progressive mer
chants got together; among them they
formed a plan. First they went out
among the farmers and persuaded
them, as an experiment, to drive into
town during the late spring 'and sum
mer and dispose of their vegetables
at an open-air market. A few came
and the housewives, attracted by the
unheard-of prices, snapped up every
thing -that was offered. More and more
of the farmers came and made pur
chases. Soon a better feeling sprang up be
tween the town people and the farm
ers and trade developed between
Rainy weather alone seriously inter
fered with the plan. It kept the farm
ers away and drove the town people
back to paying high prices again.
The merchants saw a way to beat
the weather man They formed a
company and built a market house,
sheds and stalls and concrete flooring.
The farmer coming to market could
either rent a stall or he could sell his
produce to the merchant's company.
The price paid for truck thus sold
were determined each day by a re
presentative of the farmers and the
manager of the company. They were
posted in a conspicuous place on a
bulletin board so that a farmer com
ing to the market could tell at once
exactly what his load was worth and
sell it without higgling about prices.
The market became more and more
popular and the profits to the com
pany waxed correspondingly larger
and larger. The merchants persuaded

How They Organized
A Chamber Of Commerce.
They had read of a recently formed
Chamber of Commerce in a neighbor
ing town and what it had accomplish
ed. They made up their minds that
they would give Salem such an or
ganization whether it Wanted it or
not. They took the men who had
gone into the market scheme as a
nucleus. They held meetings, got the
ministers and the bank interested, and
The first thing they improved was
persuaded the local editor'to write up
roads. They found that they' had a
tremendous force behind them; they
so stirred up the town that at the next
election the township voted to issue
bonds. Before the residents knew it,
almost, they had macadamized high
ways and concrete gutters along the
They next went after a new high
school building and got it. They
brought the water system down from
the late 70's and obtained a recreation
park on the outskirts of Salem, which
proved so attractive to workers and
their families that it led directly to
the establishment of a new factory
in the town.
"In a few years a marvelous change
came over Salem. The new Main

Before-and-after photographs were
already being shown on picture post

referred to it as a pokey town, and
high-school students lingered there
after they had completed their courses
instead of leaving for other cities.
"They made the city a go a good
place to live in. They made it up to
date and tolerated no backwardness.
They changed it from a dormant vil
lage into a thrivingN city and they
are making it bigger and more pros

map people know where Salem is
and why it has developed so fast.
