State Motor Association
Does Not Favor $3.00
Should the proposed initiative pe
tition calling for a decrease in the
automobile license fee from the ad
justed scale of fees now in existence
to a flat fee of three dollars for all
passenger cars be approved by the
people and become law not only would
the state highway program be stopped
instantly, but the obligations of some
thirty-four million dollars in highway
binds would fall as a direct tax upon
general property and would be appor
tioned to each county as shown by
the accompanying table, prepared by
the state tax commission.
The burden of highway financing
as originally voted rests entirely up
on the motorist so long as the pres
ent system is adhered A. feut if the
proposd initiative ' measure should
pass the outstanding bonds both in
terest and principal would become a
direct obligation of the state, and
general property would be compelled
to take up the obligation, paying in
terest and principal until all bonds
are retired. This would .entail the
payment by a general property tax of
a total of $52,871,71.90 as shown by
the accompanying table, and the last
payment would not be made until
Not only would this huge sum have
to be raised by general taxation but
all state highway construction would
btop immediately and all future work
on the highway program would be
This would mean that sections of
the state who voted for the issuing
of millions of dollars worth of high
way bonds with the understanding
that the highway program as outlined
would be carried to completion, will
not be given the roads promised them.
Citizens of Oregon voted for the
highway system and the issuance of
bonds under the proposed financing
plan. Bond companies and investors
bought the authorized bonds after in
vestigations based on the existing
financial plan of license fee and gas
tax, which were suid to be, and have
since proved to be, a safe and eco
nomic method for raising sufficient
funds for paying interest and retir
There is an obligation on the part
of the citizens of this state to con
tinue the existing method of financing
under which investments were made
until such time as the retirement of
bonds has made that problem one of
There is also a direct obligation on
the part of the state to see that those
sections of the state where promised
construction has not taken place re
ceive roads due them.
When these obligations have been
"met or at least brought to a point of
completion where readjustment would
not endanger the. existing highway
program, suggestions for tax reduc

" From State Board of Health.
In view of the recent epidemic of
infantile paralysis in many parts of

gestions ere offered for the immediate
after-care of the acute cases. There
are many cases which at tha nset
seem hopeless, who go on under prop
er supervision to astonishing improve
ment, the gain extending over a per
iod of some four or five years. L-ntil
this maximum improvement throat h
supportive treatment and careful
muscle re-education has been ob
tained, surgical procedures, genera'ly
speaking are inadvisable. It is need
less to add that all cases should be
ufoder the constant supervision of a
physician throughout the entiled
course oi treatment. . -
During the acute stage, the follow
ing rules should be observed: -
1. Absolute rest and quiet.
2. Confinement to bed until pain
and tenderness have completely left
the affected muscle groups.
3. Irreparable damage may result
from too early and too strenuous
4. Electrical treatment, mechanical
manipulation and massage are abso
lutely contra-indicated during , the
stage of pain and tenderness and in
fact are definitely harmful.
5. The affected muscles should be
kept warm and should be supported
in a position that permits no stretch
6 Measures should be taken to pre
vent deformaties of the hip, knee and
foot. A plaster boot or other splint
must be used for their prevention.
Warm saline baths are usually
quieting, bhould there be consider
able muscle involvement .with accom
panying discomfort, the nursing prob
lem is best handled and contraction
prevented by putting the patient in a
plaster bandage, well padded from
toes to armpits.
During the critical perird of re
habilitation the following rules should
be strictly observed.
1. Fatigue of the affected parts
must be avoided at all cost.
2. Weakened abdominal muscles
should be supported by an abdominal
3. Any tendency to curvature of the
spine should be met at once with'
either a buck brace or plaster corset
together with appropriate exercises.
4. Before the affected parts are
used, supports by light and properly
fitted braces must be provided.
5. Properly graded and supervised
exercises, active md- passive, togeth
er with massages should be inaugur
ated some three weeks after disap
pearance of tenderness.
6. Electrical treatment, save possi
bly the sinusoidal, are of questionable

COAL VEIN OPENED.
The Dalles Optimist.
According to report, from the coal
mine in the John Dny Valley which
is being developed by local people,
the main vein of coal is 25 feet thick,
one of the biggest and richest ever
uncovered. This word was brought
to local stockholders hv Vroit H
Shoemaker of Canyon City. The mine
is located on the Braga homestead
near Mt. Vernon. ' ,
P. J. Donohue, veteran mining en
gineer of Salt Lake, is said to have
rendered the following report on the
"There are mines in this region, of
what I believe will prove the best
coal outside of Pennsylvania! The
property is so situated tiiat the strike
of the coal both north and south
and its dips and anticlines, east and
west, cover the only logical point of
development. The coal there, in ev
ery direction, will have to be extract

any in the world. It will be produc
