highways were reported to the as
sociation yesterday as follows:
A non-resident operator or chauf
fer who has complied with the laws
of his resident state or country, rel
ative to operating a motor vehicle,
may operate a motor vehicle in Ore
gon for a period not to exceed u
days in any calendar year during
which time he shall be exempt from
being licensed under our law.
If the laws of the resident state
of a non-resident operator or chauf
feur provide for the issuance and
carrying of an operator's or chauf
feur's license certificate, then such
non-resident operator or chauffeur
must possess and carry such license
certificate while operating a motor
vehicle in Oregon.
If a non-resident operator or
chauffeur is a resident of a state
which under its law does not issue
or require a carrying of an opera
tor's or chauffeur's license certifi
cate, such non-resident operator or
chauffeur may, notwithstanding, op
erate a motor vehicle in Oregon for
a period of 90 days in any one cal
endar year, and shall not be re
quired to apply for or carry an Ore
gon operator's or chauffeur's license
during such period of time.

When Caesar took a westward ride
And grabbed the Gauls for Rome,
What was the first thnig that he did
To make them feel at home?
Did he increase the people's loads,
And liberty forbid?
No. He dug in and built good roads
That's what old Caesar did.
He built good roads from hill to hill,
Good roads from vale to vale,
He ran a good-roads movement
Till Rome got all the kale;
He told the folks to buy at home,
Built roads their ruts to rid.
Until all roads led up to Rome
That's what old Caesar did.
If any town would make itself
The center of the map,
Where folks will come and settle down
And live in plenty's lap;
If any town its own abodes
Of poverty would rid.
Let it go out and build good roads
Just as old Caesar did.

Wherever possible, detours are pro
vided but where detours are not
possible, oiling operations are car
ried on one side of the road at a
time, allowing one-way traffic with
out inconvenience or discomfort
The only place in the state where
sticky oil will inconvenience tour

Motorists planning trips into the

Jam in a Jiffy
When you hear a home-maker
boast that she made raspberry jam
in less than fifteen minutes from the
time she took the berries from the
ice box until pans were washed and
put away you will know she used a
short-process recipe and the natural
jellying agent of liquid pectine in
stead of the long-cooking method
used by old-fashioned cooks.
Protecting the Egg Beater
Put only the ends of the rotary
egg beater In water, being careful
to keep the cogs and wheels dry, or

Painted ceilings that have become
