"For nearly two years I had trouble

well and am putting In full time at

"My wife was troubled with chronic
Indigestion and she suffered with sick
headaches and complained of being all

done her just as much good as it has

better than she has in a long time.
We both .think the world of Tanlac and

Ex-service men in Pendleton and

The state department of the American
legion has held meetings over the
slate in which the provisions of the
measure huve been explained, but lo
cally, very little action has been
taken by members of cither the legi
on or by any ex-service men.
"Whether the ex-service men have
an opportunity to buy their own
homes or farms on loans from the
state will depend on the action the
people themselves take," Perry i
Idleman, commander of the Pendleton
Post No. 23, American Legion :aid.
"From a business point of view, the
bill strikes me aa a mighty good one,
both for the best interest of the Htate,
and a-i a mark of the willingness of
Oregon to say to the ex-service man:
