HOPE YOU LIKE IT
By CHARLES Y.STANTON
' Beginning with Monday's edition of The News-Review,
readers will find a change in the classified advertisement
department. We believe this change will be appreciated be
cause it will make it easier for anyone to locate any sec
tion idr classification in which he may be interested.
But the change makes it necessary that advertising copy
be received in The News-Review office not later than 5
p. m. the day preceding publication. No advertising copy
can be accepted for publication the same day.
: When it becomes necessary to impose limitations of this
type, we like to have our readers and advertisers know why
the regulation is made. We have found that when people
understand the reason for a rule they willingly cooperate.
But when some limiting change is made, and they do not
understand the reason therefor, they may be resentful.
We have had complaints from time to time that it is
difficult to find classifications in our classified adver
tising pages. Looking for "Help Wanted" advertisements,
for instance, readers must search the page at some length
to find the heading. Our present system makes it mechan
ically impossible to keep the various classifications in the
same order each day, as they must be shifted around to
fit columns. 1
The new system, starting Monday, will make each de
partment easier to find and will keep them in the same
Each classification will bear a key number, which will
appear with the heading. An index to the numbers will
appear at the top of the page.
"Help Wanted" for instance, will be No. 9. By glancing
at the index, then looking for the corresponding number
and heading, the reader will be able to locate any classi
fication very quickly. Furthermore, each classification will
remain in numerical order from day to day.
Mechanical make-up will require that classified adver
tising be started on a left-hand page instead of a right
hand page as previously.
To accomplish all this, and at the same time get to press
on time with pur early edition, we must advance the copy
This new system, we believe,
ship of the classified advertising pages, will be a decided
convenience to readers, and will improve the advertising
value for the advertiser.
We hope you like it.
Congratulations to Lieutenant Harrell
Apparently an assignment to the Roseburg state police
district is a sergeant's last step before moving into the
commissioned ranks. In recent years we have seen deserved
promotions handed to Paul Parsons, now a captain ; "Skinny"
Morgan, lieutenant at Medford, and now Lyle Harrell, who,
promoted to lieutenant, is to
mand of the Baker district.
Each time the commanding officer of our district is
transferred we feel keen regret, because we develop quick
affection for state policemen.
between newspapers and law enforcement officers. We have
daily contact with the state police, sheriff's staff and city
police. Consequently we come to know the law enforcement
officers somewhat intimately.
We have never ceased to be impressed by the higli calibre
of men who hold commanding positions in the state police
department. The sergeants we have had in charge of our
Roseburg district have consistently been men of outstand
ing character and ability. They have been efficient in their
police duties, and most cooperative in the field of public
relations. As sergeant in charge of the Roseburg district,
Harrell has carried on in full measure the tradition so well
We offer him our congratulations for his well deserved
promotion. We sincerely regret his departure, but com
mend him highly to those residents of the Baker district
he will serve in the future.
We anticipate the coming of his successor, Sgt. Holcomb,
who, we are confident, will maintain the same high effi
ciency and cooperation to which we have so long been accustomed.

C. E. BOWMAN, Winston rabbit grower,' poses a pedigreed

Zealands are of the beef type, the adult does ranging in weight
from 10 to 12 lbs., the bucks from 9 to 1 1. All have pedigrees'

.Mr. Bowman, a member of the American Rabbit and Cavy
Breeders association and the Umpqua Valley Rabbit Breeders
association, owns 84 does. He plans on increasing this number
to 500, which he will maintain for breeding purposes.
An increase in population is not too much to expect from
rabbits, I've always understood, so I guess it will prove the
tame with Mr. Bowman's. An Albert field man, who was at his
place when I called and who professed much knowledge con
cerning rabbits and their habits, claimed that Mr. Bowman
could expect his does to produce about 32 young ones per
year, at the rate of eight per litter in four litters. I believe
he called 'em litters, at any rate that's the general idea.
