Exports From Portland
Large for Last Month
Portland, Nov. 3. The importance
of the advantage Portland holds in
being situated at the terminus of the
only water grade route through the
mountains of the Pacific Coast is re
flected in the movement of many com
modities. Wheat, grown in the states of Utah
and Idaho, has been arriving in large
quantities, according to a report of
the traffic department, the Port of
October wheat , shipments have
reached a total of 6,251,417 bushels
with a value of $0,482,116, a near rec
ord month, and it is evident that this
heavy movement will continue well
into the winter. Reports indicate that
many North Pacific wheat charters
have been closed with loading option
al at Portrland or Vancouver, B. C.
Dried prune shipments during the
first 29 days of October have reached
a total of 19,770,197 pounds, with 6,
033,455 pounds moving to Atlantic
Coast ports and 13,736,742 pounds to
foreign markets. Countries receiving
more than one million pounds each
were: United Kingdom 6,417,384 lbs.;
Germany 8,026,276 lbs., Denmark 1,
644,349 lbs. With two vessels sched
uled to clear for European ports late
Saturday, the shipment of prunes will
evidently exceed 10,000 tons.
The demand this year has been for
the smaller sizes of prunes, many in
quiries being made for sizes 60-70s.
The average production, however,
luns nearer to the 60-60 grade and for
carton packing, 40s are ordinarily
used. The demand for prunes packed
in cartons is becoming more of an
important feature of the trad.
It is estimated that more than one
billion prunes have moved out of the
port during the present month, using
ae a basis, 60-60 grade, or 100,000
prunes to the ton.
The movement of fresh apples dur
ing the current month has reached a
total of 334,445 boxes with a value of
$604,238. With two vessels to be dis
patched with apples late Saturday, the
total will probably exceed the 400,000
Canned fruits have also moved in
large quantities with a total of 10,
113,160 pounds; 7,490,000 pounds be
ing consigned to Atlantic Coast mar
kets and 2,622,000 pounds to foreign
WELL BABY CENTERS
From State Board of Health.
The object of an Infant Welfare
Clinic or Baby Health Center is to
bring together under one roof the va
lious agencies of a community for the
purpose of conserving the health of
The objects of clinics are:
1. To diminish the infant death rate
from fifty to thirty or less per
thousand by 1933.
2. To decrease infant and child dis
eases and increase immunity
through universal breast feeding.
3. To install the habit of regular
and thorough examinations.
This will be accomplished by hygi
enic and nutrition instruction for the
home, and teaching the parents the
detection and prevention of physical
defects in their children.
The duties of Infant Welfare phy
sicians are to examine the baby
monthly during the first year and bi
monthly the second year. Quarterly
examinations are recommended thru
out the pre-school and school age.
Mothers are given instructions re
garding diet, clothing, hygiene, child
training and the general welfare of
a home. The baby is kept on the
breast for nine months. If the breast
milk is insufficient, complementary
feeding is advised (not substitute
feeding) of a formula not sweeter
than breast milk. Where breast de-
elopment or reestablishment is ad
visable the nurse teaches the mother
the technique of breast expression.
Dietary additions are recommended
1. Orange juice at three months.
2. Cereals at five months.
3. Succulent vegetables at seven
4. Cod Liver Oil daily; 10 drops
at two weeks, 1 teaspoonful by
three months and increase to 8
teaspoonsful by 9 months. No
laxatives or cathartics are to be
Minor ailments may be treated at
the clinic provided early treatment
will prevent more serious develop
ments and the parents are unable or
unlikely to obtain this from a private
physician. All cases are referred to
the family physician or the general
dispensary. If the family has no reg.
ular physician, the nurse will advise
as to proper medical attention.
It is recommended that every child
9 monthhs old or older be vaccinated
against smallpox and immunized
against diphtheria, The reaponsibil
ity rests on every parent and on the
community to see that parents are
educated and that the resources of
health are made available. In Mar
ion, Clatsop, Douglsa, Coos and Jack-
Bon counties and in Portland Wen ua

question is, what is your community

Careful of Headlights,
Says State Association
"Light bulbs are one of the small
est items of expense confronting the
motorist in the upkeep of his auto
mobile. The cost of one or more
bulbs of legal size is trivial in com
parison to even the filling of the tank
with gas, the replenishing of oil in
the crankcase or the providing of a
tire. Spare tires, however, are now
considered as standard equipment on
practically all autos when in opera
tion on the road. With the increasing
tendency of motorists to neglect their
head lights to the point of having
only one in operation a good part of
the time, it is high time extra light
bulbs were considered in the same
clasB as spare tires. One of the great
est confusions and hazards to be met
with on the highway in night driving
is the one headlight driver.
Goerge O. Brandenburg, general
manager of the Oregon State Motor
association, in commenting upon the
ever increasing number of complaints
received regarding the one headlight
autos operated on the streets and
highways, has issued a strong appeal
to discontinue such a hazardous prac
tice. Mr. Brandenburg has advocated
also the carrying of extra light bulbs
as a safeguard against such confus

bulbs and their faculty for burning

Oregon, Washington, California, Ne

of America, and is the only western

suggested by Mr. Ward and Alban

Increased consumption of woolen
materials will reflect benefit to all
branches of the industry, and for that
reason Mr. Ward believes that such
a campaign should have cooperative
effort from both producres and con
sumers of wool. Changes in styles,
particularly in women's clothes, and
the increased use of silk, rayon and
fur is largely responsible for the lack
of demand for wool and the conse
