STATEMENT WAS ERRONEOUS
Tax Commission Misquoted Regard
ing Resolution Introduced
Some of the Oregon dailies
September 28 published a news
story, under A.'sociated Press, dato
line, to the effect that the Property
Tux Relief commission had ' "voted

endorse any particular form."
. The official record of the meeting

property tax offset was made and
withdrawn, and that the rpecial
cammitte named from the fourth
sub-committee to make a study and
rvport on income taxation to the
ib-committe was continued for the
purpose of malting such study and
report after tho November election.
The above is the substance of the

Adrertiting Does Pay
Does advertising pay? We sa,v it
does. For verification of our state
ment ju: t ask Joe Chastain. A week
or so ago he advertised three lost
horses. The day after publication a
man appeared at Joe's home and
told him Iiis horses were at Friend.
Joe sent a man after them, recover
ing his beet span, and all because of
the lost notice appearing in The
Job Crabtree has been laid up
several days this week with boils,
which induced eresypelas. As was
his Biblical namesake, our worthy
contractor has been suffering much
pain, but failed to call for death, as
did the Job of old.
