Conestogas Roll Again
On Highways of America
Coneitogai are rolling again!
iNearly a bunded yeari ago the
about of "California here we
come" rang out along the Santa
Fa trail from old St "J" to the
Cimarron country as trains of 30
to 90 Conestoga wagons rolled
and .jolted toward the "new"
West Peope were going places.
Comet Jetliners
Are Grounded
LONDON 1 The pride of
British commercial aviation, the
Comet jetliner, was a groundling
casualty Tuesday pending a "min
ute" investigation of Sunday's
crash of the eight-mile-a-minute
aircraft in which 35 persona died
off Elba.
The government-owned British
Overseas Airways Corp. took its
seven Comets off commercial runs
in Europe, Asia and Africa. The
crash in the Mediterranean was
the seventh involving a Comet
since the aircraft went into reg
ular service IS months ago, and
the third in 10 months with fatal
ities. In all, M persons have died in
the aircraft.
Today, for people who to
places, the sound bss changed,
but the sturdy, dependable trans
portation again bears the proud
name of Conestoga. It's the new
all-steel station wagon by Studebaker.
Up In the conestoga valley of
Pennsylvania, from which the
original wagon took its name.
John Studebaker was recognized
among the skilled German crafts
men ss an expert wagon builder
and blacksmith. His vehicles
were among those that withstood
the crossing of the Allegheny
range in freight service from
Philadelphia to Pittsburgh.
John Studebaker built his first
Conestoga in 1934, and in 18S1
this same wagon, with its swamp
oak wheels and hand wrought
hardware, brought the Stude
baker family to South Bend. Here
they plied their trade during the
westward expansion, building
more Conestogas, and later the
equally famous farm wagon.
Then came the automobile.
The year 1904 saw the first
Stuacbaker gasoline automobile.
During the next 90 years apJ
proximately four million Stude
baker vehicles followed the 'na
tion's highways wherever people
traveled. ,
America is still on the move,
and for people who go places the
new Studebaker Conestoga sta
tion wagon proudly lives up to
the name at its. Pennsylvania an-

Easing Sought
For Quarantine
Oregon is urging seme modi
fication ia the new Porto Rico
quarantine affecting the ship
ment of gladiolus bulbs into that
country, according to Frank ate-
Kennon, chief of the division of
plant industry of the 'Oregon
state department of agreuttiure.
A bearng on the matter is slated
for January 11 at San Juan,
. Shipment of at least one order
about $2000 worth of Oregon
glad bulbs is being held up until
this quarantine a clarified or
modified, says McKennon.
The Puerto Rico quarantine,
which went into effect last De
cember 8, apparently requires
that gladiolus bulbs entering the
island bo grown in an area free
from Curvularia tunata and Fit-1
sariura ozysporum diseases and
also be from planting, not flow
ering, stock. The quarantine
(Oregon officials have not yet
received a eopy) also prohibits
entry of four varieties cf glad
bulbs Picardy, Spotlight, Corona
and Purple Supreme.
McKennon has advised the
Puerto Rico plant quarantine
service director, Luis A. Catonia,
that Oregon can certify to free
dom from Curvularia lunata on
bulbs grown ia the northern part
of. the state but that Fusarium
oxysporum is known to be pres
ent wherever glads are grown
although Northwest Oregon is
the most favorable area tor pro
duction of gladio
lus eornu. This disease is not I
difficult to control" "
McKennon supported his letter
urging modification with infor
mation from Dr. Roy A. Young,
plant pathologist at Oregon Slate
College, relative to the disease
covered in the quarantine order.
