CENTRAL POINT AMERICAN VOLUM E VIII | Sauntering-- This week we shall take up our jou rn ey ir om the May cities to the olil home stale. Starting from San Leandro early Sunday morning we found no trouble whatever in driving right through the heart o f the down town district o f Oakland. Only a few early birds like ourselves (or per haps people on their way to bed) were on the streets and even part of the traffic lights were off. So we steered safely through the maze of big buildings and easily dodged the street ears. • • • C E N T R A I. 1*01 NT, OREG O N, 1111 ESD I Y. .11 I.Y :«*, l(*;Mt AVIS P'ES Local Girl Killed FROM INJURIES When Auto Hits Bike at Crossing Avis Kngery Hrood. aged 13, daughter o f Mr. anti Mrs. G.
