The grade crosflingB must go and
they will be eliminated wherever poe-
lbie on Uie roads of the federal aid
highway system, which will be built as
a result of the passage of the federal
highway act. Wheu the roads which
form the primary or Interstate system
are constructed, no grade crossing will
be allowed to remain that It Is at all
practicable to avoid. Every effort will
be made to make the roads of the sec
ondary system equally safe, but in
this case It 1b recognized that elimina

Policy Meets Approval,
In making this announcement the
bureau of public roads, United States
Department of Agriculture, under
whose supervision the fund Is allotted
and construction Is undertaken, Is put
ting into effect a policy which It has
long advocated In principle, and whose
adoption It has urged with increasing
effectiveness upon state highway offi

the part of the states, and the Amer

Saving of Human Lives.
The prime object of the depart

ably will involve Increased expense of
construction In the case of some roads,
but It is believed this Is Justified by
the saving of Ufa. Daring the three

the best records available at the de

grade crossings In the United States
and 10,644 persons were Injured.

WOMAN BREAKS RKPORD BAN

Mrs. Kathleen Ayres Is at grea
booster for gasoline service of the
Standard Oil Co. Mrs. Ayres Is the
woman who last week broke the San
Francisco-Portland record by pilot
ing her four cylinder Bulck Coupe
between these cities In 22 hours and
43 minutes. Her time cut down
the best previous motor car record
by 3 hours and 8 minutes, and best
ed the Southern Pacific's crack train
The Shasta," by 6 hours, 47 rain
Mrs Ayres, in describing her rec
ord-beatlng run, was particularly
generous in her praise of the Stand
ard Oil Company s Service along the
road. Stops were made at Corn
ing and Rosehurg for Red Crown
and Zerolene, and the prompt at
tention given by the attendants cut
many minutes off the running time.
"And minutes are vauable little
thlnga, especially In establishing
records," said Mrs. Ayres.
The Buick's record Is offlcfal in
every respect, as the Coupe ad Its
nervy little driver were checked out
of San Francisco and in at Portland
Francisco June 22nd, 23rd, and
24th. She made the trip by way of
showing that the women of today
can keep pace with the men.

We may get this germ from the careless eougher, sneewr, or excited talker

germs have a chance to multiply and then produce the symptoms of a cold.
To prevent Infection, It is of course best to avoid the close proximity
