The Christmas Void
It's a heterogeneous collection, this flood o( letters to
Santa Claus that ts pouring In to The Capital Journal from
trusting Salem kiddles who fear they may be forgotten by
the patron saint o( childhood 'b Christmas land. Through
them run strains of pathos, laughter, gelf-sacrtdce, gener
osity, brotherly love and, most uniformly, faith faith in the
certainty that old St. Nicholas will play no (avorltes, that he
will visit cottage and mansion alike.
There's the little boy who wants merely a motorcycle,
electric train, pony and cart and a (ootball. He may awake
Christmas morn to see some of his desires fulfilled through
the mysterous workings of his own individual St. Nick. ,
But how about the little girl, whose father, unable to work
because o( prolonged sickness, cannot supply her and her
five little brothers and sisters with sutflcient clothing to
keep them warm, or enough (ood to sustain the roses in
their cheeks?' What evidence o( Chris Kringle's visit will
greet their eyes when they pounce (rom their scantily
blanketed beds on Christmas morn? This little motherly tot
wants nothing for herself but a pair o( shoes not so badly
worn as the ones she has, some cast o(( coats and dresses (or
the other children and a warm suit (or (ather.
This particular little girl and her (amily are going to be
reached by Santa, through his personal agent in Salem, the '
Elks, or the Salvation Army. But they cannot supply the
needs and childish desires of scores ot others whose faith in
old Santa is at stake unless you help. The Elke alone are
planning to distribute 600 Christmas packages. They need
money and things like the following to fill these gift
Cloihing, new or cast off, (or man, woman, child or baby.
Bed clothing and (uel to supplement the warmth of
Christmas cheer.
Dolls, toys and all sorts of trinkets to divert young minds"
(rom the sordid necessities o( life.
Candles, nuts and (ruits to add the Christmas flavor.
If you have nothing else to give, give money. Twenty-five,
B0 cents, a dollar or five dollars measure your own ability
to give. Tbe money should be sent to Fred Erixon, chairman
of the Elks Welfare committee, in care of The Capital
Journal, or turned over to the secretary ot the lodge at the
Elks temple. .
If you have other articles bundle them up, mark the con
tents on the outside ot the package and send them to the
Elks Temple.- If you are unable to deliver the package .
telephone the secretary of the Elks lodge and it will be
called for. .
Salem's Christmas happineaB hangs in the balance. Act
today. Let there be no Christmas void.

Advertisers write The Capital Journal that the
Statesman i9 seeking to take away advertising now car
ried by The Capital Journal claiming the largest circula
tion iu the field.
The Capital Journal has no quarrel with the States
man and does not believe in newspaper squabbles. It
believes in a live and let live policy. It does not seek
' Statesman business. It believes in newspaper competi
tion in all fields and believes that a morning newspaper
is a community asset for Salem.
The Capital Journal however, has no intention of
losing any of its business on false pretenses. It has now
and has had for years by far the largest paid circulation
in Salem and vicinity, an authenticated audited and
proven paid in advance circulation.
The Capital Journal has deposited $1,000 in Ladd &
Bush bank to be forfeited to the new Salem hospital if
an audit of the circulations of both The Capital Journal
and the daily Statesman, conducted by the Audit Bureau
of Circulations, whose auditor is now in Salem, does not
show that The Capital Journal has at least 1,000 more
paid circulation than the Statesman, the Statesman to
forfeit $1,000 to the hospital if it does not have within
1,000 paid subscribers of The Journal's circulation.
This offer is made for immediate acceptance.
Advertisers should not buy a pig in a poke, but
should know what they are buying in the number of
subscribers a paper has. The Journal's circulation is
regularly audited and its books are open to all. To place
the Statesman in the same plane, The Journal will pay
the entire cost of the above audit and of its membership
in the Audit Bureau of Circulation.
