New Traffic Districts
Beneficial, Says Hoss
That the creation of seven traffic
districts in the Btate with responsi
bility in each vested in one officer
to be designated as a captain, which
waa put into effect last month, will
be productive of satisfactory re
sults in traffic enforcement and in
vestigatory work is the belief of
Hal E. Hoss, secretary of state, who
has supervision of the state traf
"The plan of establishing smaller
districts with a greater centraliza
tion of authority has been adopted
to cope with the growing traffic
problem," states Hoss. Closer con
tact between captains and patrol
men is afforded under the new plan
and responsibility is definitely plac
ed for more effective control. The
present personnel of the department
remains the same, with the excep
tion that three lieutenants and two
sergeants have been given captain
cies. This advance in rank does not
disturb the official rating of the
present staff and does not carry any
rise in salaries.

lows in the territory indicated:
District No. 1, Captain J. J. Mc
Mahon, headquarters, Portland;

SEES ORIGINAL SCHOONER.
S. E. Notson, in commenting on
the birthday of Ezra Meeker and
the wind-up of the Oregon Trail
centennial celebration on Monday,
said that while in Sheridan last
week he had the honor of sitting in
an original covered wagon or prai
rie schooner. People there claimed
that it had actually crossed the
plains in the historic days of yore,
and he affirmed that it did have all
the earmarks. Especially did the
wooden pin hitch, used to connect
the wooden yoke of the oxen to the
wagon, serve to convince him of its
