HEPPNER GAZETTE TIMES, HEPPNER, OREGON, THURSDAY, NOV. 10, 1927. PAGE THREE NORTHWEST TO GET STOCK QUOTATIONS Ticker Service for Port land, Seattle, Taconia, Will Start Soon. The chattering stock ticker, with all its connotations of Wall Street and millionaire stock brokers, is soon to be heard in the Pacific Northwest. When the new sevice is installed, fi nanciers and brokers of this section will receive by ticker, not only the transactions of the New1 York Stock Exchange, but also full quotations from the Board of Trade and the Cotton Exchanges. After 18 months of successful op eration to San Francisco and Los An gelesproof positive that the ticker will work perfectly over great dis tances the Western Union Telegraph company, which has exclusive ticker service arrangements with the va rious exchanges, is now engaged in rerouting its overland facilities be tween Chicago and the Pncific Coast, so that quotations on stocks, grain and cotton will reach the Coast by way of Denver and Ogden instead of Dallas and El Paso. This more cen tral route will permit the forking of the transcontinental circuits at Ogden, the northern fork carrying the quotations to Portland, while the southern extension will serve San Francisco and Los Angeles. Special automatic rotary repeaters have been designed and constructed for use at Ogden. There will be no change in the na ture and handling of the service to points in California, but the new ar rangement will permit the establish ment of Portland as a prime re-transmission station. Plans virtually com pleted contemplate the installation of three transmission plants at Port land, duplicating in all respects the existing plants at San Francisco and Los Angeles. By meanB of these sub sidiary transmission stations, other cities in the vicinity can be given practically instantaneous srevice. Three new wires are being con structed between Portland, Tacoma and Seattle. One of these circuits is for assignment to the stock trans mission plant at Portland, one to the grain and a third to the cotton trans mission plant, so that ticker service subscribers in the three northwest em cities will receive simultaneously the Portland transmission of all quo tations reaching the Pacific Coast sta tions directly from Chicago. The new service is scheduled to start about the first of the year. To effect the expansion of service it was necessary to provide nearly 2,500 miles of new truck line wire construc tion. Additional costs for channel and ticker central office and subscrib ers' equipment bring the total ex penditures on the part of the tele graph company to more than $200,000, As son as thj service i in operation to Pui -timid, Tacoma and Seattle, it is i hi iit.l to e.- lerd it as rapiiily u: pot,iL,e to Spoki.i.e, Walla Valla, Vancouver, Victori.t, Butte ai,d other points. Reroutirg of tie t"anscontinental circuit via Djrver makei it possible to provide a re-transmission station at Denver, for which plans a'.so are under way. . The Denver distribution will constitute the last link in the country-wide -chain of stations from which extensions of the ticker service can be made to practically any city or town in the United States. Service to be supplied includes complete transactions in the stock issues listed on the New York Stock Exchange, complete transactions of the New York and New Orleans Cot ton Exchanges, the Chicago Board of Trade, including cotton quotations of that board, and, for one-half hour prior to the opening and for forty minutes after the closing of the Chi cago grain market, the complete transactions in bond issues on the New York Stock Exchange. Owing to the difference in time, the ticker service will open on the Coast at a relatively early hour. As the New York Stock Exchange opens at 10 o'clock Eastern Standard time, the first quotations will begin to ar rive in Portland at 7 a. m.. Pacific Coast time. Pacific Coast brokers who wish to have the benefits of the quotation service from the time of opening of the Eastern markets, with out the inconvenience of going to their offices at that early hour, may have tickers instiled In their homes. The ticker works at a speed of 300 characters a minute, and is always "up" with the quotations as delivered to the ticker service from the Stock Exchange. When the direct ticker service was first established betwem Chicago, Los Angeles and San Fran cisco, there were misgivings in some quarters as to whether a ticker cir cuit could be made to work satisfae fuctorily over such a distance. The tusts proved, however, that tin eKl ciency of the circuit was even hihhei than that of ordinary telegraph cir cuits, inasmuch as the average daily loss of operating time because of wire trouble was only 30 seconds, a high-standing record in such matters. As an extra precaution for insur ing the Northwest the best of serv ice, arrangements are being made for a spare ticker circuit from San Fran cisco to Portland, automatically re peated, so that In case of interrup tion on the Ogden-Portland route the connection can be almost instan- tnlously switched to a San Francisco- Portland leg, thus assuring tne norm western region of direct service to Chicago. E. A. Peirce and Company of New York are cooperating with the West ern Union Telegraph company in the extension of the tickr service to Oregon and Washington.

To make a window look broader, make the curtains shorter and use deep valance. Bring the curtains back as far from the window frame as possible. Double hung windows look best with opaque side drapes and valance with sheer net under drapes. The overdrapes hang to the bottom of the apron and the underdrapes to the sill. If windows are noticeably small for the room, placing opaque curtains out along the wall and raising the va lance above the framework will ap parently increase the size. Extremely high windows are made to look shorter by using a deep va lance. White window curtains make a room appear larger while colored ones tend to lessen the size. In a room where dignity is express ed, longer Bide drapes at the windows tied back with cords wftl help the effect. To prevent custards from becoming watery place the custard cups or baking dish in another pan with a imall amount of water. Also do not :ook too long or too fast. If mayonnaise separates during the first stages it can be saved by start ing again with a teaspoon of hot water in another pan and adding the leparated mayonnaise a little at a time, bealting constantly. Green peppers are ideal for the leftovers. Meat, macaroni, corn, bread crumbs, tomatoes, cheese, etc., can be used for a stuffing in various ways. An Armful of Thanksgiving 4 R, Mrs. R. P.
