this race with distance to spare
almost a mile ahead of his only

one little grief, for in rounding
one of the nearly turns in the
open free for all, the driver was
thrown against the gear shift and
threw the machine into the wrong
gear, and the engine was buzzing
away like a treadmill and not
making any time., The driver
shouted to his mechanic to shift

first and second places.

Bushey ivea Interview in
Reply to Evening News
paper Editorial
Referring to an article that ap
peared in the evening paper criti
cising the- Marion county road-
building program and procedure.
Judge Bushey give the following
authorized Interview:
It s a mistake to call this 'my
patent or 'my' pavement. The for
mula is precisely the same as that
used for tens of thousands of
miles of roads all over the- coun
try. The state highway commis
sion has built hundreds of miles
on this same formula. It's not ray
patent, either as to the composi
tion or the process of laying. It
is standard all over America.
Roads Xot Excelled
"And if there's any ot the Mar
ion county pavement that's need
ing more repair than any other
pavement laid anywhere, we want
to know it.
"We know that the Marion
county roads are not excelled in
Oregon or anywhere, for either
low cost of construction, or free
dom from repair.
Investigation Invited
"We have 1200 miles of public
roads in Marion county. We try
to give both mileage and perma
nence to the roads that we build
aand we know that they compare
favorably with any other roads
built in the state. We would
court an honest investigation as
to how the Marion county road
funds have been invested.

One Death in Marion County
Every week Due toTi
berculosis, Says Miss
Holmes After Survey.
Caution at State Hospital
for insane Reduces
Number of Cases
One person died every week
in Marion county from tubercu
losis. This is the statement made by
Miss L. Grace Holmes, director
ot the bureau of surveys of the
Oregon Tuberculosis association
following her survey of Marion
county which has just been com
pieted. These figures include
only those which rightly belong
to Marion county.
Some Die at Institutions
The survey made by Miss
Holmes covers a period of five
years and her figures have been
obtained from physicians and
nurses in thh county. During that
five-year period 21 Marion coun
ty persons have died at the state
hospital, eight have died at the
feeble minded school, six at the
penitentiary and only one at the
toys' training school. Miss
Holmes called attention to the
fact that there were now no ac
tive case of tuberculosis at the
boys school, and that this school
has as its medical director Drv
Grover C. Bellinger, who is' un
doubtedly" more than usual!
careful to notice signs of tuber
culosis since he is head ot the
state tuberculosis hospital.
Sixty Cases in Salem ,
Salem has had 10O deaths from
tuberculosis during the last five-
year period, according to Miss
Holmes, and has now 60 active
cases. Thirteen persons are
known to have recovered from
the disease. Chemawa has had
six deaths and has now five ac
tive cases.
The black pins on Miss Holmes'
map, which Indicate deaths dur
ing the five-year period, are
numerous in the Silrerton dis
trict, and so are the red ones
which indicates the active cases
Large yellow pins Indicate the
recoveries, but there is plenty of
room for them anywhere In the
county, according to the map
State Cases It educed
Tuberculosis cases at the state
hosrftal are being steadily re
duced, according to Miss Holmes,
following the establishment of
the pavilion for tuberculosis pa
tients at the institution. During
1919, 35 patients died from tu
berculosis at the state hospital
(for the insane, while in 1920
only 24 died, and In 1921 only
21 victims were listed at the
state hospital. As soon as pa
tients show signs of tuberculosis
Ihey are removed to the pavilion
and so others are prevented from
taking the disease.
Family Hard Hit
Miss Holmes has prepared
map of the entire county and all
deaths from tuberculosis in the
last five years are marked with
black pins, active cases with red
pins, and yellow pin heads mark
the known recoveries. One small
group of pins which has paid its
share of toll to the "T. B." germ,
and has others within its midst

white plague."

Romantic Actor Not to Knew
Until Monday Whether lb
Is to Stand Trial cn Big
amy Charge.
Judge Hanby to Bind Defen
dant Over or Dismiss
dolph Valentino, hero of film ro
mances, . will know next Monday
whether he must fsce a Jury on a
charge of bigamy.
Justice J. Walter Hanhf an
nounced this today at the conclu
sion of the actor's preliminary
hearing on a complaint charging
that Valentino carried Miss Wini
fred Hudnut at MextcaH, Lower
California, and afterwards v lived
with her at Palm Springs, : Cal.,
while he was still legally married
to Miss Jean Acker.
Dismissal Possible
Whether Justice Hanby vwM
bind over to the Los Angeles su
perior court for trial or dismiss
the complaint, will depend upon
hi interpretation of the Califor
nia statutes, upon : which -. the
charge against the actor Is based.
It was contended by Deputy Dis
trict Attorney J. P. CotteUo that
the ' fact - that Valentino and hit
second wife lived la the same cot
tage at Palm 8prlngs for three
days following their, marriage,
warranted holding the defendant
tor trial. W. L Gilbert, repre
senting Valentino, argued that bo
evidence showing, marital . rela
tions had been produced- ,
Leakey Attorney Heard
Frank: James, attorney for the
Famous Ptayers-Laakey corpora
tion, attacked the validity of the
proceedings on. the ground t&t

did hot constitute bigamy. .

ed to have a room; by herself and
Valentino and Douglas Gerard,

signed to another room. , .e
James Moves Dismissal
y, Wfcen Mr. Costello . submitted
his case, Mr. James moved to dis
miss the complaint, saying he was
surprised the deputy , district at
torney had not so moved. He tald
it, "would be a great misfortune
if this defendant should be held
to answer when there is no hope
ot his conviction by a Jury. .
.Mr. Costello said there were
eeveral points connected with Abe
case upon which i the . supreme
court of California had never ren
dered a decision and felt tor this
reason. If for 1 no . other, . there
should be an opportunity to ad
judicate. He said that Valentino
had 'wilfully and knowingly vio
lated the laws ot the state and
formed the Intent to so violate
them before he went to Mexican
with his consort." He said Val
entino "harried his bride out of
the state after it became known a
prosecution was possible.
. j fijtatnte Quoted -
"Do yon contend Mrs, Valentino
is guilty of bigamy too. asked
Mr. Gilbert.
"Ton will find a section of the
code which says that If any per
son marries another person, know
ing that the other person , has a
husband or wife IIviagV ald per
son shall be guilty of bigamy." re
plied the deputy district attorney.
The prosecutor remarked that
he was "sorry for Valentino and
sorry for his wife, bat society can
not stand this sort of thing."
Mr. Costello asked the' court to.
recollect that " ValentI no's plc
