See Yourself As a Russian Sees You; Izvestia Article Moscow, July 16 VP) Ilya Ehrenburg, soviet journalist who has just returned from a tour of the United States, described America in an article in Izvestia today as a nation of strange contrasts. "New York's skyscrapers justify their geography," Ehrenburg said. "This is an enormous city built on a little island. But in the smallest provincial town one may find a few small skyscrapers built around a few thousand one-storied buildings. Such are the contrasts of America." Turning to the race question, Ehrenburg declared that in all sections of the country he found "organizations for defending the rights of negroes," but that he had encountered in Mississippi a plantation owner who told him that "black-skinned people in general are not human beings." Contrast Noted Ehrenberg declared that there was "nothing more in contrast to the British character than the average American." "Englishmen," he said, "are more courteous, phlegmatic, love to live their lives at home, order their suits from good cloth and wear them until death, or at least until the next elections. But the Americans love everything new. They seldom become used to one apartment until they begin hunting for a new one, which they want to furnish with everything new, throwing away all old furnishings." Discussing American literature Ehrenburg said: "It would be difficult to find today in western Europe writers to equal Hemingway, Faulkner, Steinbeck or Caldwell, and I could add a few other names." The Dollar Cult Ehrenburg said he discovered in American "Yet another cult that of the dollar." "I was present at dinner meetings," he wrote. "At first everybody hurriedly chews chicken. Then orators make long speeches. Next comes a sentimental song by a lady singer and finally a clergyman takes up a collection for chanty." "For the average American almost an epoch elapses between the morning and. the evening newspaper, and later in the day he cannot always remember exactly what he got excited about in the morning." County Court Will Issue Certificates The county court has issued orders confirming official canvass of votes had on election of directors for various rural fire protection districts and will issue certificates of election to the following directors in the respective districts: Silverton Anton Dahl, Conrad Johnson, H. B. Jorgenson, W. J. King and Alvin Krug. Four Corners Alfred E. La-Branch, W. G. Flood, O. D. Binegar, E. L. Scott and Roy Ward. Woodburn Paul Townsend, John C. Kinns, Joseph Serres, Gail Lansden and D. L. St. Johns. Stayton Merle Crane and Gus Kirsch, resident directors, and George Andner. director at large for Marion and Linn counties. New Town Site Is Named Carlhaven Plat of a new town site named Carlhaven an dlying just south of the Clovelead farms in the Keizer district has been recorded with the county authorities. The plat is owned by Robert C. Abrams and his father, Colonel Carle Abrams, who is a pioneer in platting and marketing new tracts on the outskirts of Salem. Carlhaven plat contains 144 building sites. The owners plan to install two deep well pumping systems to supply water for the entire project. The tract is highly restricted. Canneries Are Given Clearing San Francisco, July 16 (P) The California Processors and Growers, Inc., representing 63 northern California canneries was cleared today by national labor relations board charges of contempt of court in effecting evclusive bargaining contracts with AFL cannery unions. The ninth U. S. circuit court of appeals yesterday denied a petition of the board to have the growers declared in contempt for alleged defiance of a previous court order to "cease discouraging or encouraging membership in any labor organization." The NLRB also charged that the cannery group had defied a board order prohibiting it from signing a closed-shop contract with the AFL union. Intervening in the case, the AFL Cannery Workers council accused the regional labor board of attempting to circumvent the national labor relations act. Grocer Claims You Pay Less "I've only sold one-fourth of a pound of butter since the price went up," moans the owner of a Salem grocery. "You tell people they can't have something then they'll get it," the owner continued, "but this time it's a case of the people telling themselves that they can't have butter." Local dairies are catching the brunt of the buyers strike. Varied opinions centralize on the fact that dairymen bring in their product to groceries, and usually take the butter out, with no sales recorded. One grocer explained that people are really paying one cent less for butter now than before the OPA authority expired. People formerly paid 68 cents a pound, while the government paid a 12 cents subsidy with tax money. Now the people are paying 79 cents a pound, with no government subsidy, for one cent less. "Just money out of the same pocket now," the grocer explained. Automobile Crashes Into Store Building The building at the northeast corner of Ferry and Church streets, occupied by Burright's Cleaners & Dyers, was damaged Monday afternoon by being crashed by an automobile that was involved in a collision with another car. The car that jumped the curb and struck the building was driven by Frank H. Dennis of Portland, and the other car by Ernest C. Wetherby, 460 Ford street. No one was hurt. Other accidents: Cars driven by James B. Vestal, route 1, Rickreall, and Cecil B. Spencer, 835 Oak, collided Monday at State and Commercial. Cars driven by Willard J. Braun-berger, route 2 and Frederick Beck, 234 North 21st, collided Monday night at High and Chemeketa. No one was hurt in any of the accidents. Planning Commission Meeting Postponed A meeting of the long-range planning commission, of the Chamber of Commerce, scheduled for Tuesday night, has been postponed on account of the absence of several members. Galileo looked at the moon with the first telescope used in astronomy in 1609. Capital Journal, Salem, Ore., BUTTER TOO HIGH SO DON'T BUY Tulsa, Okla., July 17 VP) Rebelling against a price of 79 cents a pound for butter, Tulsa housewives kept telephones busy yesterday with a "chain" campaign aimed at stopping retail sales of butter. Each caller asked that the listener telephone two additional persons and pledge them not to buy butter until the price went down. Did Murill Win Fortune' Reno, Nev., July 16 (U.PJ Fred Murill, the fabulous Texas gambler, was reportedly on his way home today with $25,000 cash and plenty more in checks his winnings from last Thursday's dusk-to-dawn session in Dub McLanahan's Club Frontier. McLanahan, confronted with varying reports on the amount Murill won from him by tossing a four "little Joe" at 2 to 1 odds, said: "Let's make it $188,500 he won." But there were plenty of Reno characters willing to bet at even tougher odds that (1) there were no winnings at all, (2) that it was just a mock game, (3) that the money Murill took back to Dallas was a loan to get his own Club Frontier in operation. Dave Allen, acting manager of the Reno club, insisted, however, that it was a sure-enough bet up to the time he left the table at 3 a. m. Friday. McLanahan himself took over at that time and verified the final payoff. Joint Canning Plan Advised An all-out drive is underway in the Marion county 4-H office to help prevent a serious food shortage next winter, says Mrs. Constance Hampton, recently appointed assistant county club agent. Marion county has an abundance of fruits and vegetables which must be preserved. With the sugar shortage so acute, many mothers are hesiating to allow their daughters to do canning. 4-H leaders recommend that the mothers and daughters work together on a mother-daugher project that is, each girl is to take credit in her record book for one half the number of quarts of produce canned in cooperation with her mother. The girls may also preseve food by drying and freezing. There are four divisions of 4H canning offered, differing from one another in the degree of skill needed to can the produce, as well as the quantity canned. Any information concerning 4-H food preservation may be obtained at the county 4-H office, 475 N. Church St., Salem, or by calling 8429. S. F. Cartoonist, Family Visiting Cloyd J. Swiegert, cartoonist for the San Francisco Chronicle who supplied the Capital Journal with cartoons for a number of months, stopped in Salem Tuesday in connection with a vacation tour of Oregon and northern California. Swiegert is accompanied by his family and prefers to camp wherever possible. The original intention to go as far north as Vancouver. B. C. was abandoned when the tourists found it particularly difficult to find accommodations. They turned back after reaching Portland and will return by way of the coast highway. Interested in historic buildings, the cartoonist planned to visit Marion county's courthouse. Douglas and Friends Tour Eastern Oregon Burns, July 16 (IP) Justice William D.

Estate Placed At $150,000 Carlton James McLeod has been named executor of th $150,000 estate of Lester Carlton McLeod and appraisers are Hollis W. Huntington, C. W. Paulus and H. A. Holopeter. Under terms of a will, to which two codicils are attached, all stock in Salem Linen Mills owned by decedent is left in trust to Carlton James and George M.

Buralar Makes Off With $734 A burglar, believed to have been operating alone, took $734 in cash Monday night from the Allen Hardware company's store at 236 North Commercial. The burglar evidently entered the store and, without attracting attention, concealed himself on an upper floor where he remained hidden until the store closed for the day. To reach the main floor and the office it was necessary for him to force a heavily-barred door on the stairway between the second and main floors, which he did by using an automobile axle. The outer doors of the safe in the office had been left unlocked. The. thief punched out the combination on the interior, ransacked the safe and scattered the contents about the office. Taken were $300 or $400 in $20-bills, between 25 and 50 $l-bills, other currency in $5- and $10-bills. two rolls of 50-cent pieces, two rolls of 25-cent pieces, two rolls of dimes, three or four rolls of nickels and six rolls of pennies. To leave the building the burglar evidently returned upstairs and went out a rear door which he left open. A platform lies between this door and a warehouse. With a ladder he mounted to the roof of the warehouse and dropped into an alley. Postoffice Checks Reported Delayed Employes of the Salem post-office will not receive their mid-monthly pay checks Wednesday and the blame is being placed at the door of congress. Tied up with other matters the law makers back in the national capital failed to pass the necessary appropriation measure to make the checks good. However. Postmaster Albert Gragg expresses no alarm over the situation and expects the checks will be received and honored in due course. The annual Colorado state picnic will be held in the city park at Dallas. Sunday, July 28, and former residents of that state are invited to attend and renew acquaintanceships. s
