PLAGUE SURVEY IS MADE
HOSPn AL XEED SEEN IX EAST
Robert W. Osborn Returns From
Inspection of Union, Baker, Wal
lowa and Umatilla Counties.
The tuberculosis survey of the four
eastern Oregon counties. Union, Baker,
Wallowa and Umatilla, has been com
pleted and Robert W. Osborn. who
conducted the survey, returned yes
terday to Portland armed with such
interesting and convincing- facts and
figures that the- officers of the Ore
gon Tuberculosis association, under
whose direction the survey was made,
felt greatly encouraged in the pro
posed project of the establishment of
a district tuberculosis hospital in the
eastern section of the state.
The number of living cases of tuber
culosis and the number of deaths In
the several counties since 1918 as
listed by Mr. Osborn were as follow:
Union, 50 living cases, 20 deaths;
Kaker, 62 living cases, 31 deaths; Wal
lowa, 39 living cases, 23 deaths; Uma
tilla, 30 living cases among the In
dians, 36 deaths among the Indians;
75 white living cases, 49 deaths. As
the total population of the Indian res
ervation is 1117, it will be seen that
the death rate among the Indians Is
ar.artlingly high. This makes a total
of 246 living cases in the four coun
ties and 162 deaths in a district hav
ing a total of 70,000 population.
In addition to these actual cases
there is a large number of contact
eases, people living in close associa
tion with people who have the dis
ease in an active form. Mr. Osborn
was much impressed by the number
of children under ltt years of age
having the disease, as It Is these cases
to which a district hospital could ren
der euch a great service.
Representative citizens, physicians
and nurses were interviewed by the
score and they expressed an almost
unanimous desire to have such a hos

Nash Prices Cannot
They Have Never
There will be no reduction in the price of the
We think it only fair to state our policy plainly in
justice to present Nash Six owners and those who
contemplate purchasing this car.
Nash prices cannot be reduced because present
prices represent the actual intrinsic value of the
product plus a profit sufficient only to maintain
That is a plain statement of fact.
We cannot buy the high grade materials used in
the Nash Six any cheaper.
We cannot buy the skilled labor employed in the
making of the Nash Six any cheaper.
These two factors determine price. Until materials
are lower or labor is lower, no one can manufac
ture such a car as the Nash Six for less money.
We say no one advisedly because here in this great
plant covering 101 acres of ground and employing
5000 skilled workmen, manufacturing costs are
reduced to their lowest level.
Here, the Nash Six is manufactured 93 in its
We have every advantage that large resources and
a well established business afford the purchase
of raw materials on a big scale, perfected manu
facturing processes and the distribution of costs
over a large output.
This insures minimum production
costs for each individual car.
That is why the Nash Six has al
ways represented exceptionally
The savings made by our manu
facturing methods have been given
to the buyer, keeping the price of
this car at the lowest possible figure.
Consider this fact.
Since 1917, while prices of all
commodities have been soaring,
A STATEMENT .
Our policy has always been to give
the consumer the best automobile
and best truck we could build at
the least possible cost. We have
never asked a dollar more, simply
because we could get it.
In view of the tact that there Is no
reduction today in the price of ma
terials or labor entering into Nash
products, and that there is no pos
sibility of any reduction for some
time to come that can substantially
affect manufacturing costs, the
policy of The Nash Motors Com
pany will be to absolutely maintain
its present prices on both passen-
fer cars and trucks to at least July
the price of the Nash Six has risen only 31. Con
sidering the addition of cord tire.s and other equip
ment as standard equipment, the actual increase
has been only 24.
During that time, the increased price of other motor
cars shows an average rise of 76.
The cost of living has risen 104.
These figures show plainly that Nash manufactur
"ing ability does make possible a car of exceptional
value, and that Nash selling prices have always been
kept low in accordance with our lowproduction cost.
In view of price changes, actual and rumored, we
welcome the opportunity to make this statement:
"That the Nash Six today represents more actual
value, and is a bigger and better automobile than
any other car within hundreds of dollars of its price."
That is our judgment and that it is the judgment of
many thousands of motor buyers is evident in the
widespread conviction that the Nash Six does repre
sent value impressively above the average.
Under these unsetded conditions it is the only ex
planation of the fact that today the Nash Motors
Company has thousands of unfilled orders on its
books and that maximum production schedules
. are being maintained in our factory.
You may purchase the Nash Six with the assur
ance that today as always, you
are buying a car of exceptional
You buy more power with the
Nash Six due to its Perfected Valve-in-Head
You buy comfort and convenience
beyond the ordinary.
You buy really exceptional beauty
of design and finish.
And you buy a car with the high
character of its performance proved
