HOSS SENDS OUT
300,000 Application Forms Sent
Automobile Owners for New
Year Beginning July L
Salem, Ore., May 20. Nearly 300,
000 application blanks for motor ve
hicle licenses have been mailed
from the office of the secretary of
state, Hal E. Hoss, in readiness for
the approach of the annual regis
tration period. For the first time
in the automobile history of the
state, yearly license fees will be
due July 1, the 1929 legislature hav
ing changed the registration year
from January to July, and set June
30, 1930 as the final date for the use
of the six months' windshield stick
ers which have served since the
first of the year.
With the belief that the greatest
number of people would find it eas
ier to pay for a year's license for
their automobiles in the summer
than at the first of the year, the leg
islative assembly adopted the new
fiscal licensing year, establishing
1930 as the time for the change to
the new system. Yearly licenses
may be purchased for automobiles
not registered before in the state on
Applications may be mailed di
rect to the office of the secretary
of state at Salem, or may be pre
sented to the Portland branch office,
69 Fifth street, or to the offices of
county sheriffs in all counties ex
cept Marion and Multnomah, where
offices of the motor vehicle division
of the state department are located.
In obtaining plates through the
sheriffs, an added fee of 25 cents is
required which goes into the county
funds as compensation for the ser
vice furnished. Temporary permits
to be affixed to the windshield will
be provided by the sheriffs to serve
as receipts until plates are received
from the Salem office.
With the exception of trucks op
erating under the motor transpor
tation act, passenger cars and
trucks will carry the same kind of
plates. Those coming under the
transportation provisions will be in
dicated with a letter "M" preceding
the numerals. Plates for the new
season will be black with orange
numbers and will be effective until
June 30, 1931.

(From Quette Times of Kay SI, 1935.)
Lexington was hit by a water
spout yesterday afternoon. The
downpour was on the hills tributary
to Blackhorse canyon, and when
the flood waters reached the town
they were sufficient to cause much
damage, and the net result was the
wrecking of a building or two, the
flooding of business houses and res
idences and leaving deposits of mud
and debris No lives lost

The machine house on the Mpun

Heppner, was struck by lightning
Friday morning, and burned to the
ground Most of the contents of the
structure were saved by removal.
The Umatilla Forest office has
been moved to Pendleton. One of
the reasons for the change is that
Pendleton is closer to the center of
the reserve and more convenient to
stockmen generally. Savings are
expected in the operation of the

Fine Lambing Season
Passed in Washington
Spokane, Wash. Washington
flockmasters have had one of the
most successful lambing seasons in
the history of the state, according
to the statement of Otto Rothisberg,
of Hell Gate, one of the well known
sheepmen of Washington, while he
was in Spokane.
Mr. Rothisberg said that his
flocks were increased by 2300 little
woolies and that the weather was as
fine as summer. The smallest loss
in years was had. Sheep are in fine
condition and the clip will be thick.
His sheep are being run north of
Wilbur along the Columbia river.
