JOIN AND HELP The re-organized Commercial Club is in the midst of a great campaign to interest and enlist in its service in dividuals and business concerns not yet on the rolls of the organization. It will solicit all such to become members. This campaign means greater things and a brighter future for Salem; and it means, just as surely, greater things for every business man, every professional man, every manufacturer, every laborer and every citizen of Salem and vicinity. No public spirited citizen who can af ford to be a member has a right to remain out of the organization. It is decidedly worth his while to become actively identified with this great organization and power for community welfare. It is proper that every citizen of Salem should give this matter his earnest, thoughtful consideration, with a viewj of doing his part in helping forward the general advance of this community on the road to still greater things. "LET'S SAVE THE KIDDIES" The prohibition law of West Virginia designates as a bootlegger any traveler who carries more than two quarts without labeling his baggage as to the quantity of liquor in his possession. It is related that a West Virginia cit izen returning from a fishing trp obeyed the law literally by wearing a placard which said: "I contain one quart of rye and four pints of beer" The fish yarns that a fellow in that condition ought to be able to tell would be ex tremely entertaining. A man living in the town of Scottsdale, Pa., sat and watched a burglar ransack the dining room of his home. The law-abiding and quiet citizen preferred to let the rob ber work to firing a revolver and waking a sleeping infant that he had rocked for four steady hours in order to put it to sleep. Thus there are occasions when a man can sit still and see his silverware being bagged by a burglar with out protest. General Hugh Scott, chief of staff, asserts that he could raise and properly equip an army of 500,000 men in the United States in four weeks. Scott is probably talk ing through his headgear, since those editors and politi cians who really know all about such things, declare that it could not be done, and that we can only be properly pre pared by recruiting 1,000,000 men at once and spending a tew billions on equipment and armament. A Galley o' Fun ! HE WOULD BE MOD'RATE. STATE NEWS The last words accredited to Vanderbilt when he was face' to face with death on the Lusitania were spoken to his valet: "Come, let's save the kiddies." The words were simple and casual, and the impulse was that of humanity. They were more than the words of a dying man; they are the feeling of this living age. "Let's save the kiddies" did not originate with Vander bilt on the heaving deck of the shattered Lusitania. It is the thought of this generation of Americans. Vanderbilt had absorbed it perhaps he had helped to nurture it, and when the supreme moment came his heart spoke that su preme message' The movements toward reforms affecting young chil dren have multiplied during the past few years to a de cree hardly realized by the unthinking.

The Eugene Commercial Club has just awarded a gold merit button for advancing the best idea for a club activ ity. The recipient was A. F. Pingenheimer, and his "idea" was that a committee of three, composed of a representa tive from each newspaper, and the club secretary, be ap pointed to learn the names of new people in town, and to take steps to have them made at home and to get them into the club. An idea like that, if acted upon, was well worth a gold button to that particular commercial club, or any othe r one which wants to do something for the community.
