year for the first time these taxes
are payable quarterly: March 15.

by June 15 and a one per cent Is
earned by payment by September
' 15, ' providing, of course, that
each previous quarter's tax has
been paid as due. The next effect

payer, eight per cent for the use
- of his money prior to the tax due
date.:: "'-.y "'"v !
; The " commission doesn't know
whether the new law will speed
up tax collection. It hopes that
March 15 wilt bring a deluge of
advanced payment. It does know
that deputy sheriffs have a huge
- Job ahead; they must accept pay
. - meats tour times annually instead
- J of two. In, addition they must dt-
tide the rebate against each dis
trict for which the tax Is collect
ed and assess the reduction rat
ably to this district. Contrawlse if
interest on back taxes Is collect
ed. this must be ratably distri
buted to the District on whose
Y taxes the interest was assessed.
' - Heretofore this interest ' went to
the , county general fund. The
work of tax collection Js at least
doubled. The assessors, too, have
their griefs; there must be chan

mand by certain board members
for the board to . formulate its
policies both for the remainder
of this school year and for 1SS4
1835. These members feel the ex

(t) West has a sound vulner
able opening bid. He has two bid
dable suits, a six-card minor and
a four-card major. We always pre
fer the longer, although the short

Whenever possible,' it is wise to
bid your six-card suit at least
twice before showing your tour
card suit. .
(2) A natural overcall.
(3) East has three honor tricks
(five playing tricks) so gives a
double raise In diamonds. A dou
ble raise in a "minor Is almost a
forcing bid. It frequently la used
as a deliberate underbid, hoping
not to shut out a three no-trump
from partner.
(4) . South's hand does not Jus
tify a defensive bid.
(5) Inferential forcing bid.
West reopens the bidding with a
new suit after a raise from his
partner of his previous bid. The
bidding must now be kept open
until game;
(6) East has the choice of bid
ding four no-trnmp (showing two
aces and the king of diamonds) or
five- diamonds. East is not confi
dent that the two bands will pro
duce a slam, so he prefers the five
diamond response. You have to
learn when to use the no-trump
convention and when not to nse it.

Mr7 Baldock said yesterday the
plan for letting, the bridge con

30 days from the time the bids
are called ' for. before they aro
submitted.- Contracts will be Jet
as soon ' as bids are opened and
work on the bridges is expected
to begin within two weeks, there
after. Alsea Bridge at
Waldport First
tThe first bridge to be let will
be the one over the Alsea river
at Waldport. The next will be the
bridge over Coos bay at North
Bend. The third will be the bridge
over Yaquina bay at Newport. The
fourth and fifth bridges, to be
let simultaneously, will . be over
the Umpqua river at Reedsport
and over the Siuslaw river , at
Florence. '
Approximately 45 per cent of
the cost of the bridges' of flclally
set at 35.102,620, will go for
direct iaoor on. me. project, iai
dock said. That will make a pay
roll oL about 12,295,000 directly
accruing from the bridges, in ad
dltion to other work resulting
from preparation of materials.
Estimated costs of the bridges
are: Waldport, 1711,000: Coos
bay, 32,225,052; Newport, 31.-
128,418; Reedsport, 3537,700;
Florence $470,450. Costs include
interest charges on money used
during construction period.
Construction of the bridges Is
expected to require approximately
two years. Their cost, with other
works planned, will give the high
way commission an operating bud
get in 1934 of more than 38,-
000,000. largest In many years.
Workers will be selected from
unemployed men registered at
federal bureaus. Men from the
counties in which the bridges are
located will be given first choice,
until all eapable workers on th
unemployed lists are exhausted.

Willamette Freshmen Rate
On Par With Others; Tall
Students Scores Better
Willamette university's fresh
men class, which enrolled here
September, 1933, stands almost
exactly at the median of other
freshman classes in general men
tal, aptitude of similar 'colleges
and universities throughout the
United States.
Preliminary figures released
Saturday by Dean Frank- M.
Erickson show that the average
of the Willamette '37 class is
156 v. hile the median for the
average of 12,757 students
throughout the nation who took
the test is 157.
For four years Willamette uni
versity has submitted its students
to the Thurstom Psychological
exam, a test administered to
freshmen classes in 205 schools
throughout the country. The aim
of the test is not to determine ad
mission of students but to assist
teachers in guiding the students
during their college courses.
The figures tor all the schools
in the 1933 exams are not com
pleted. In 1932 Willamette's stu
dents ranked weir above the na
tional median obtaining an aver
age of 172 while the national
median was 163.
One interesting factor regard
ing student height developed
last year. It was found that
freshmen taller than the average
bad an aptitude score 2.5 points
aboTe the arerage while fresh
men below the average height
were 1.4 points below the apti
tude average.
Willamette had one student in
this year's testa whose score was
surpassed by only 26 of the 12,
7S7 students tested throughout
the nation.
