longing to C. J. Smith ol Salem was
badly dumuged in a (hree-car acci­

pulled ou, to pass him. The Smith
car was going south and the car
driven by the Medford man hi, it on
the side, ripping off the front fend­

top, damaging the other side of the
car und denting the top in. About
$150 dollars damage was done.
No one was hurt in the accideni,
the Martin car was no, hit and the
Medford car drove on with a slight­
ly denied fender.
