CITIES BEGIN FLY CAMPAIGN
Others Writing for Directions; 10,000
Twelve Oregon cities are pioneering
in tbe Spring anti-fly campaign. A
fresh city writes for instructions to
tbe State University Extension Divi
sion almost every day, but in the orig
inal twelve tbe campaigns have b een
arranged for The twelve are:
Salem, Portland, Rose burg, Forest
Grove, LaGrande, Pendleton, Medford,
Eugene, Monmouth, Astoria, Drain
and OreswelU f - - .
In abont a week the University will
have ready for distribution 10,000
bulletins. These bulletins will tell
Oregon communities bow to prooeed
in fly campaigns. Meanwhile, Dr.
Clifton F. Hode, professor of eooIb!
biology, who is originator of the idea
in this state, is giving directions to
Eastern Oregon towns.
. Women's organizations are common
ly first to take op tbe fly campaign.
Immediately the organization tries to
enlist tbe city offioials. Appointment
of a deputy with police aotnority,
who is expected to see that places
where flies treed are eleaned and kept
clean, is next songbt. In Roseburg,
tbe women's acxiliary of the Com
mercial Glob is leading the fight.
The bulletin will contain specifica
tions for tbe easily made and inexpen
sive fly trap that has been snob a fao-
tor in making campaigns elsewhere a
snooess. Use of traps early in the fly
season is essential. One snob, .trap
will frequently catch all tbe early
pairs in a small neighborhood, if prop
. Includes Panama.
Panama is a part of the United
States coast- line, declared Senator
George Chamberlain of Oregon Toes
day. Heintrodnoed a. resolution call
ing for tbe sntmission of tbe expense
acoonnta on all rivers and harbors
work and a complete itemized state
ment regarding tools and machinery
on all snob jobs on United States
waterways, inoluding Panama. The
resolotioa is fraught with great possi
bilities and caused a tremendous sen
sation. If the senate by passing this
resolution, plaoes Panama as a part f f
the' United States coast line and on a
similar footing with all other U. 8.
waterways, snob action will vitally
affect tbe free tolls qnestion. CUam
terlain's move is said to be a strategic
maneuver to tear tbe tolls qnestion out
of treaty control, tbua fooling tbe
British and tbe American railroad
trnst and all other interests opposed
to free tolls, for Amerioan coastwise
hatter still repeats dreamily as be re
calls the motnoiit or bis life, "It would
not have been fulr to bnve sold them,
not fair to my customers and not fair
to myself." London Globe. '
Made the Most of His Hats.
When Lord MUner held his first re

the place in which silk bats were sold,
and this bad but four of them. Tbe

He offered to let them out on blre at
tbe rate of 10 shillings for ten minutes.

Only those who have traveled a good

When n visitor goes to one city after
another, sees one building nfter anoth

' Wt Tyler's Rebellion.
Attempts to fix by statute the. wages
of agricultural laborers In England
were largely responsible for the great
revolt of 1381, or "Wat Tyler's rebel
