dary was established as the cen
ter of the road now known as tn
Pacific highway. ' When the state
paved that portion a paid the en
tire cast without negotiating .with
the Woodburn officials as to reg
ulation rights. - ...
After tne bUhway - had been
paved the e.ty refuted to give up
that portion. At the north end of
the cfiy limits placed a sign,
w;t back Uyond the intersection
ou a street leading to Woodburn.
on which appeared the notice
"8am down to ?0 miles an hour'
To a tourist not acquainted with
conditions it might easily tx tak
en for granted- that the 20-mile
regulation was for the street on
which: it appears.
I tumor Ara Heard
No pother aigi . appears on the
one-mile stretch which adjoins
Woodburn except the notices of
several of the streets leading to
the city of the 15-mile regulation
while going 'to the city with an
arrow to indicate the direction tn
which the regulation is effective.
On the highway sign there is no
arrow to indicate the direction of
the restricted r rea and contrary
to the usual sign appearing on the
Pacific highway it gies no reason
for the change of speed regula
tion. ; i
These conditions ' scrv?d as a
background for 5 era' stent rumors
in which the Viodturn traffic of
ficer, ' Flay Har n id. was said - to
have arrested Innocent tourists
traveling only 21 or , 22 mile an

Sign, or if they had, thought it
was effective only on the street
leading to the city.
