-were reported to have been speeding

Orientals Race to rtcalc.
Spady attempted to explain his
racing by declaring he thought the
other machine to be a stolen car and
he was trying to get a look at the
man driving the machine. However,
his explanation was not considered
a good one.
It was when the two Japanese
racers came before him that the
judge's lingual talents were taxed,
and he had to resort to pidgin Eng

Organized Labor Team Turns in
Good Sum Showing Working
',Ajien Favor Army Work.
With the annotinced determination
of completing the Salvation Army
drive during the present week, the
force of field workers under the lead
ership of John L. Ejhertdge. state
chairman, began their canvassing
activities yesterday with -renewed
vigor. A partial check on the amount
subscribed in Portland will be an
nounced either today or tomorrow.
The entire quota for the state of
Oregon was fixed at $284,000, of which
Portland has been asked to contribute
one-half, or $142,000. The state, out
side of Portland, has practically com
pleted its quota.
Contributions -reported yesterday by
Otto Hartwig, captain of the organ
ized labor team, indicate that Port
land labor, is doing Its full share to
ward assisting the Ha I vat ion Army.
Unless the Portland quota Is pro
cured, the operation of- the ., White
Shield rescue home for wayward girls
may be seriously curtailed during the
coming year. This is one of the big
gest projects the Salvation Army has
mapped out for itself in its 1920 pro
gramme. Mr. Etherldge, in an appeal last
night, urges every business firm
which can possibly do so to contribute
the services of one employe td assist
during the closing days of the drive.
All firms or business houses which
will make this contribution are asked
to notify campaign headquarters at
the Portland Press club.

This trade phrase which we have -adopted tells, in a nutshell,
why the housewife should buy 5fc-W BLEND FLOUR.
It may cost you a few cents more per sack because it costs
us just that much more to produce.
It costs you less per loaf because actual baking tests, scientif

of better bread to the given amount than other flours.
