mobile fees and $264.22 as its share
of the motor transportation funds,
A total of $1,936,805.70 of this mon
ey was apportioned to the 36 coun
ties of Oregon on the basis of each
county's contribution to the total
fund for the quarter.
Automobile registrations netted
the state $5,648,582.88 of which $3,
765,721.92 was creditetd to the state
highway department and $1,882,

County Gets a Third
A total of $28,598.99 in cash was
turned over to the treasurer from
Morrow county during the period
June 16, 1930, to September 15. 1930.
Two thirds of that amount Is turned
over to the highway commission
and one third is turned back to the

Records of the state motor vehicle
division show there are 1,014 pas
senger automobiles and motor ve
hicles under one ton in Morrow
county from which $21,801.28 in
fees were collected.
Hoss pointed out that admlnls
- trative expense for the three month
period amounted to $189,959.28, only
three per cent of the gross receipts
from automobile registrations,
marking a new low figure in the
cost of operating the motor vehicle
By this apportionment the high

$3,927,556.15 at its disposal for work
on the highway program of Oregon

The commission last week award
ed two contracts totalling $113,832
for projects In Lake and Malheur
counties, rejected all bids for a con
tract on the Mt. Hood-Bear Springs
section of the Wapinitia highway In
Wasco and Clackamas counties and
held up award of contract for work
on the interstate bridge at Port
land. The commission has declared its
Intention of awarding all contracts
by January 1 for the Roosevelt
highway so that the entire road
will be graded and an automobile
can travel its entire length by 1931.
However, the commission, at Its last
meeting in Portland ran up against
a snag concerning Douglas county.
Commissioners of that county told
the commission the county could
not set a definite date for starting
work on their portion of the Roose
velt highway. The estimated cost
of grading and surfacing four miles
of the coast road in that county is
$300,000 and completion of that Is
dependent upon the Douglas coun

Oregon Is Leader With
Bulk Handling of Grain
Though the Pacific northwest is
the last stronghold of the costly
sack method of harvesting grain,
Oregon is much farther advanced in
adopting the bulk method than
either Washington or Idaho, reports
Gustav Kuhlman, assistant in farm
management at the Oregon State
College Experiment station, who
spent much of the summer on a co
operative survey of harvesting
methods in the northwest
This survey, under the auspices-
of the United States department of
agriculture, was designed to reveal
exact comparative costs of various
grain harvesting methods, deter
mine the extent of farm storage
facilities for grain, as well as local
and terminal storage facilities.
The findings are expected to be
published in the near future in a
new government bulletin.

COUNTY FUNDS LOW
Coach for "Aunt Lucia' Coming on
10th; Paul Gemmell and Jim
Cash Provide Venison.
Endorsement of including an ap
propriation of funds for the library
in making up the city budget was
made by the Lions club Monday.
This action was taken by the club
following a request the week pre
vious by Mrs. Lucy E. Rodgers,
president of the library association,
that the Lions give the matter con
sideration. Feeling that a more
definite source of income than that
derived from donations should be
had, and also that as a community
enterprise it should have commun
ity support Lions considered this
the logical means of financing the
Another problem put up to the
Lions for consideration is that of
handling charity within the city.
Both local and transient demands
for charity are made at intervals
upon the city, county, various or
ganizations and business men of the
city, It was pointed out, and the sug
gestion was made that the charit
ies of the city be united with respon
sible people in charge to determine
who is worthy and who is not, and
to administer the funds.
Clothing Drive Suggested
The expressed opinion of mem
bers who talked on the subject was
to the effect that such an organiza
tion would not be intended to sup
plant the work of the county in its
obligations to the poor but to act
more in emergency cases. How
ever, " the scope of the work would
be more inclusive than that of the
Red Cross, and hence could not.be
expected to be handled by it alone.
That funds for charitable purposes
of both county and Red Cross are
low at the present time was cited
to show the need for assistance in
carrying on such work.
As part of a relief program, it was
suggested that a drive for clothing
could be made, with the supply thus
obtained to be placed at a central
distributing station in charge of
the charitable organization. Offers
of cooperation in this were made,
and quarters made available for
storing the clothing.
President C. L. Sweek, In endors
ing such a move, pointed out that
while the Lions are entirely within
the bounds of Lionism in assisting
in charitable work, they are onlv
one of a number of organizations
within the city doing a like work,
and that they can be expected only
to do their part. To feel out other
organizations on the matter, and to
help in the organization of a cen
tral charitable association if such
is found feasible President Sweek
appointed a . committee to repre
sent the Lions, as follows: Walter
Moore, chairman, J. D. Cash, Gay
M. Anderson, Spencer Crawford and
Play Coming Soon
W. R. Poulson, chairman of the
Lions play committee, reported that
the lady to take charge of the pres
entation, "Aunt Lucia," will be in
the city October 10. The cast will
be picked from among members of
the Lions club, with the lady rep
resenting Universal Productions in
full charge. It is expected the play
will be ready for presentation in ten
days after her arrival.
For the second successive week
Lions were treated to a venison
feed. Paul Gemmell and Jim Cash
were donors of the meat for which
the thanks of the club were extend
ed by President Sweek.
