Bus and.truck owners operating
In Oregon are looking tor a "Mo
ses" to lead them out of the wil

of State Hosa to assume that role.
A letter received by Hose from
Charles J. Shelton ot Portland,

Freight association, declares that
because ot the multiplicity of laws
which bare nee a written onto the
statute books la the past ten
tears, many ef them amendments
passed In the closing hours ot leg
islative sessions a recodification
bt the bus aad track laws is badly
Seeded. Many of the bus and truck
laws, Shelton declares, a t e
"shrouded In obscurity" until op
erators are at a loss to understand
their intent and purpose,
Shelton, as representative of the
Motor Freight association, urges
Hoss to call a conference In the
near future to consider the pro-
nosed recodification. Ho suageets
that such a conference be attended
lj representatives of the state
traffic department, the - public
err Ice commission, the attorney
general's office, members of the
legislature -who are especially In
terested in traffic problems and
by representatives ot bus and
truck companies. Hoss has indi
cated that he would probably act
favorably upon the suggestion.
