statements already placed in the
record that he had been In con

the sliding scale sugar tariff pro
posal, Shattuck replied:
"It is incorrect, sir. It Is incor

misunderstood. I have discussed
with Mr. Newton questions per
taining to the sliding scale and
he has discussed them, I always
understood, with the interested
sugar people, not only the Cubans
but the beets and others, and' I
have been asked by Mr. Newton
to discuss It with him, but not
with Mr. Hoover."

Attendance at University's
Extension Course Is
Enrollment In the extension
classes of the University of Ore
gon conducted here, must show a
decided Increase for the winter
term, which 'begins January , If
the courses are continued
in Salem, according to word from
W. O. Beattie, director of the Sa
lem extension classes.
The registration was so low for
the term ending this week that
there seems little Justification in
continuing the classes unless
more Interest Is evidenced, ac
cording to Beattie. While the di
vision does not plan to make any
money on the course. It does feel
that fees should approximate the
running expenses, and this was
not nearly done tn the past term.

Miss Margaret Mc Alpine, one of

envy of all the employes (not

demonstration yesterday. And all
because she brought for Inspection

which the pupils of the Falrriew

for Christmas. Miss MeAlplne vis

automotive engineer will tell you. And
Gasco, containing precious benzol,
gives you an extra pound of fuel in
every two gallons you buy!
Benzol is a wonderful motor fuel
in itself. It stops high -compression
knocks, smooths theoperation of any
motor, makes any motor run more
economically. With benzol is blended
high-test "dry" gas to give Gasco
quicker starting, to prevent oU dilution
to add "flash" and speed. Here, at last
is a de luxe fuel that every car, low-o?
high-compreion, can prolitably use.
