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
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
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.

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
The movements toward reforms affecting young chil

The Eugene Commercial Club has just awarded a gold
merit button for advancing the best idea for a club activ

was that a committee of three, composed of a representa

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.
