CHRISTMAS SEAL SALE
GOING OVER STRONG
The fourteenth annual aale of
Christmas Seals by the Oregon Tuber
culosis association opened Thursday,
December first and will continue uptll
Christmas eve. Never before has' lit
entire state been ao thoroughly organ
ize ror a large and successful sale
as It Is this year. Not only have
srme of tho enthusiastic agents ben
"rarln to go" for the past several
j weeks, but some of them have already

Tl;e little Christmas stickers for us
on holiday packages and letter, sell
. furnish a fund which lhat most dread-
ed of all disease, tuberculoma, U
by Icgl.laUve, educational, pre
ventatlve and relief measure.
Through systematic and scientific
work along lime of health education
tuberculosis haa decreased forty pir
cent in tie past sixteen year and it
is to aid in further wiping out the
disease that the seal art offered once
In endorsing the seal aale, Preai
aenc Harding recently said: "I am
glad to note the splendid success of
the campaign against tuberculosis, aa
hown by the decline in tha death
rate In 1920, to the remarkably low
level of 114 per 100,000. The enor
mous saving of life reflected by these
figures clearly indicate the success
of the work' of the National Tubercu
losls association and it affiliated or
ganizations. A honorary rice-president of the
association, my earnest hope I that
the coming fourteenth annnal seal
sale may be completely successful, in
order that the splendid work my be
further developed. I trust there will
be a generous response to the appeal."
Clackamaa county first ordered
$1900 worth of seals and has already
ordered an additional $200 worth, so
great has been the demand for thai
little sticker. Mrs. Mary R. Caufield
is chairman of the aale In that county.
Mrs. Collins Elkins, who la handling
Crook county reported several days
ago tat she bad sold $66 worth of
seala. Mlsa Ella Cochran ot Canyon
City, bad the distinction of sending in
the first final returns. She aoVd her
ecals before the sale actually opened
In other parts of the state and haa
sent ia her check. Mr. Eugen?
Hayter is the chairman for Dallas.
Her first order waa for $200 worth of
seala and already she baa ordered an
alditional $100 worth. Mr. Hayter.
vice-president of the the Dallas Na
tional bank, has written the tubercu
losis association the following letter:
"Last yvar thla bank put up a good
picture aa a prise to the grade school
selling the greatest number ot seals
and the little folks simply worked
their heads off for that picture. It
waa such a success that we are offer
ing another picture this year."

Oil THE PAVEMENT
Some Points From a Recent
Public Discussion I
Of the Matter t
In a free-for-all discussion at tho
Methodist Brotherhood meeting-, Mon
day evening. In which everybody tried
to work out of hi. system whatev.r
seemed to demand utterance, which
bad not been talked about before, av
member complimented Tha Newa on
it article of a month ago on tha habit
of walking on tha pavement at night,
and a further discussion of that aub
ject on broader line was Indulged in.
The New was only passing along;
some one else' idea then, and It I
willing to keep doing that ao long; as
there I anything In Springfield that,
needs correcting or improving. .
One of tha discusser. Monday?
evening, said that, in addlUon to the
bad condition of tha walk, which in
time paat drove people to tha pave
ments, overhanging tree In many
part of town now make it almost Im
possible to carry an umbrella; and
ao people had been tempted to wins
out to the pavement, where there waa
no obstruction clear up to the plac
where the rain came from.
Tha man who raised thla question,
who drive In from the country la
hi car declared that the conditions
on 6th atreet are peculiarly dangerous)
on account of the gTeat number of
car parked without light, and th
consequent difficulty of distinguish
ing a pedestrian near those cars.
Some one suggested that If pedes
trians would persist in walking on th
pavements, they should be require!
to carry a light It might be well to
require them to carry a bell or a horn
and aoun-1 it in time of fog.
W. H. Adrian, who wa present at
the meeting, brought up the point
rignt-or-way, which Is set forth in
this extract from the Motor Vehiclo
!aw of 1921, chapter 371:"Pedestriane,
when usitg any highway outside of
incorporated cities or towns, . shall
use the left hand Bltfa of such high
way, so as to leave the right hand
side of the highway free for vehicles
passing in the same direction and for
safety in meeting vehicles proceeding;
in the opposite direction.''
Thla deals only with highways out
side of towns, for the reason . that
within the town 'pedestrians are ex
pected to keep to the sldewalka.
Nevertheless, If a pedestrian think
his convenience of comfort at any
time justifies him taking to the pave
ment. If he win observe thla rule, and
keep to the left, he will give th
driver of a vehicle a better chance.

and will possibly receive more leafeat

Let ua all do this until we can learn
to do better. '
