By Douglass Shelor.
The Goodrich Tire & rtubber com
pany' road marking crew are agralJn
Urrxon placing algna along. the nu
traveled highways.
The" crew in charge of Chestef C.
liirnb left Portland last Monday over
ihe Mount Hood road and will mark
the highway an far as 'Government
Camp. Thla ta a work that la very
commendable on the part of the Good
rich people, and those living along the
routes marked should lend every aa
aifitance to the working crew.
When the crew reached the southern
part of Oregon on their way to Port
land they were much discouraged to
find that a great many of the signs
placed by them last year had been
torn down and mutilated. In many
place the signs had been entirely
iurned around, directing the motorlsta
in the opposite direction.
Thla Is pure vandalism on the part
of unthinking hoodlums, and should be
severely dealt with by the law abiding
citlxena of Oregon.
Bad Impression Croatod.
The Ooodrich people are spending
thousands of dollars in marking the
highways of the different, states
throughout the west In order that the
many tourists Who will vlalfthis sec
tion daring the next year may travel
with an assurance of being on the
right road. If the communities through
which these signs are placed allow
their mutilation it merely impresses
the visitors with the utter disregard
of the rltiaena to law and order,' and
the courtesy due those traveling
through the state.
No doubt there will be several mil
lion dollars spent in Oregon next year
by tourists visiting the Panama Pa
cific exposition at San Francisco. The
people of Oregon should thank the
Ooodrich people for their Interest in
this section, and the money they are
spending properly marking our high
ways. Instead, It has taken the road
crew fpur weeks to replace the signs
between the California line and Port
land, that were mutilated.
Signs Shoultf Bo rrotoctod.
The roads between Portland and Sa
lem, on the west side of .the Willam
ette river, have been marked during
the last two weeks. As soon as the
crew returns from Mount Hood they
will mark the road from Portland to
Korest Grove, the Columbia highway
and many 'other short trips around
Portland that could not be covered
during their last visit to Portland.
Let the cltltens of Oregon protect
the signs placed along our highways,
and when one is found to he turned in
the wrong 'direct-ion straighten it
around. In thlst manner- Oregon will
receive many boosts from the travel
ers who pun through instead of tell
ing their friends that the road direc
tions in Oregon were misleading and
Undependable as has been the case In

This advertisement was unique in

ald, is the land of forbidden things.
Everything Is "verboten," and many
things are "Streng verboten" (strictly
forbidden). This In time of peace.
You may, therefore, well imagine how
things are in time of war. A list of
'things forbidden in' Berlin would sure
ly cover several columns of the Ex
tress, but it would be tedious. The
most characteristic, however, is that
it is forbidden not to believe what
the Wolff Telegraph agency says
about German. victories. In Germany,
everybody sc far believes implicitly
that Wolff cannot err. Should there
be anyone courageous enough to doubt.
he would be considered a foe and spy.
And then !
Everything foreign has, of course,
'been eradicated -from Berlin for the
last week. A shop in the Friederich
strasao was almost' demolished by the
crowd because it is called "The Prince
of Wales,- and advertises In big let
ters that It sells "Ulster coats." An
Indian tea room has thought It neces
sary to take away the word "Indian"
1 from its sign before the mob does it
'The same thing for French signs. The
.Berlin "Chat Noir" has become the
'Schwartze Kater," whtch means "the
.black cat," and is perfectly senseless,
'of course.
A restaurant on the Kurfursten
damra was destroyed some nights ago
Leoaiaae somebody had thought the
band had played a Russian song; in
the same street the restaurant called
"Boncourt" changed its name on ac
count of the French sonority of that
name, which is really taken from a
character in one of .Kleist's patriotic
plays. Foreign names have not only
been wiped -off from signs, but even
from bills of fae. What Berlin res
taurants generally advertised as
"Crem jt double" (French cream cheese)
i now called "Doppelter-Rahm." which
nobody understands. Rumpsteak has
been turned in rumpstuck.
The "English Cafe" was called the
( Cafe" overnight, and the
"Queen Bar'" was turned Into a "Hoch
Vateriand" bar; the Cafe. Piccadilly
became the "Vaterland Caffehaus," and
the signs of several English companies
were simplified by taking off the
English "th. which might have
.roused the public. Words generally
used in Berlin, such as "tailor made,"
'samovar,' "conf iserle," "ondulation,"
and others, have disappeared, and been
replaced by . German substitutes which
' nobody understands. 1
Portland's liberal patronage of high
class automobiles and motor trucks
has been an incentive to the While
company to establish itself in a per
manent location. With this object in
view, Mr. Hill, manager of the Port
land and Seattle branches, went on a
still hunt and found the new abode
foi" the White car in the Beck build
ing, located at the northwest corner
of Broadway and Oak streets.
The -White car, being rather par
ticular about the new home, whispered
tc Mr. Hill that the home must be
something more than four square
walls; it must be inviting; it must be
suggestive to visitors of the use. bene
fit, convenience and pleasure the
White automobile is to men and it
must be different, showing individu
ality, as does the White car.
With all of these little whisperettes
stored away, Mr. Hill looked for the
executor, and found him in the person
of Pierre L. Traglio, the artist who
designs and makes the beautiful floats
for the electric parade of the Rose
Festival. Mr. TragliQ, with the whis
perettes ever in mind, completed the
new home recently, and it shows the
work of an artist throughout.
The old fir logs with green moss
peeping here and there from the crev
ices of the bark, reminds one of the
famous Forestry building, now a land
mark of the Iewis and Clark fair; the
beautiful paintings of Mount Hood as
see'n from an aftfomobile at Cloud Cap
Inn; the Sandy road leading to Mount
Hood with Hood in the background;

from the Columbia highway; and many
other . beautiful paintings of the Co

By Sirs. G. B. Claflin.
We left Tlje Journal building at

Such a trip has recently been made
by H. C. Skinner, manager of the ta- 1
citic Motors company, dirving a 1915 j
model 2p Maxwell car. The trip cov
ered the route from Portland through
all tiie principal valley towns to Med-.
ford, going from there into the Crater
Lake national park and on to Klamath
Falls, and througii the mountains at
Green Springs pass. '
Mr. Skinner made the trip a year
ago at this time, and the comparison
between the condition of the road of
a year ago and now is very noticeable.
Cow Creek canyon in Douglas county
a year ago presented obstacles which
were almost impassable. At the pres
ent time, however, the road through
Cow Creek canyon is so good that it
ie almost a boulevard. The same dif
ferences are noticeable throughout al
most the. entire trip.
Of course, the long dry spell through
August made the roads very dusty in
some sections, but as soon as a littlo
rain fell the roads packed down so
that the return journey was very en
joyable, ' '
The performance of the Maxwell 25
overs tho severe grades in Douglas :
county was very gratifying. The se- I
verity of . these grades calls, for low
speed work in most cases, but the
light weight and high power of the
Maxwell makes it unnecessary to cm
ploy low speed, almost all 1 of the
grades being made on high speed, the

Mr." Skinner was on a business trip
sitrning up territory, and found tho
dealers all through the valley very
optimistic over the outlook for the
coming year.
Over 300 machines were signed for,
a large number wanting immediate de
liveries. He was accompanied . by A.
T. Huggins, manager of Fleischner,
Mayer & Co., and N. H. Rubbottom
of this city. These gentlemen went
solely for the pleasure of tho trip,
enjoying every minute of the journey.
The necessary baggage and equipment
for the trip made virtually a five pas

beautiful scenery and new expert
ences, but not one of the entire party
was hurt.
I took two dear old ladies, two
children and a young man who is an
invalid. His wife Is working in a
laundry to support the family and
could not go. Mr. Keats furnished
a chauffeur- who was ideal. We went
out through East Portland to the
Columbia highway past ' the many
beautiful farms that form an ever
changing background for the high
way and out beyond Rooster Rock
we located just the spot for an in
viting lunch that had already been
prepared by The Journal.
The old orchard selected for a
camping place overlooked the Col-
umbla liviCbove Chanticleer-and the
bea-Mtlful jt4rer unfolded itself to our

After seeing and riding in the JEFFERY CHESTERFIELD SIX at the factory, we told
Jeffery that this car was just what we would design ourselves as a small popular-price, tar
for our Oregon conditions. jp )
It was a certainty that some, manufacturer possessing the necessary capital, experience
and equipment would build a six-cylinder car of better quality, better style, greater econorjjf and more com
fort than could be bought in the past for less than $3000. Ill
Any manufacturer or assembler could put together a light Six, and, if he made it lighl enough in qual
ity, he could make it a. price leader. Jeffery, believing that permanency in this business the most impor
tant thing, does not aspire to leadership in price, but he insists upon leadership in quality.; f ji
You will find, when you read the specifications, conclusive .evidence of modern mechanical superiority.
You will find it the last word in distinctive quality. You will find it the most economical iar in the six-cylinder
field a car deserving of style leadership. ( . '
