Reckless Driving Law
Reckless and drunken automo
bile drivers will be under closer
scrutiny of state officials after June
9th, as a result of changes made by
the state legislature in the operat
ors' code, reports Hal E. Hoss, Sec
retary of State.
Every person convicted of oper
ating a motor vehicle because of in
competency, driving while intoxi
cated, recklessness and hit and run
drivers, regardless of the court hav
ing jurisdiction in the matter, will
be reported immediately to the sec
retary of state for appropriate ac
tion in the matter of license sus
pensions or revocations, changes in
the law require. These citations of
traffic violations are required from
all Oregon courts, which! will in
clude courts in every city and town.
Previously only justice courts, dis
trict courts and circuit courts were
required to forward the Informa
tion. "The fact that each municipal
judge, or city recorder, is forced ta
make a report of all serious traffic
violations upon which convictions
have been recorded, will practical
ly double the effectiveness of the
curb on outlaw operators," explain
ed secretary Hoss. Many serious
traffic violations have come under
the jurisdiction of these courts and
me convicted drivers have contin
ued to operate their automobiles be
cause the state was unaware of the
fact and could not suspend or re
voke the operator's license. The
new law will eliminate that condi
tion," Hoss said..
An additional help to th enforce
ment or the suspension or revoca
tion of drivers licenses is the new
provision in the law requiring each
convicting magistrate to immediate
ly take up the license of those
found guilty of serious offenses and
forward the cards to the state de

Lesson for April 16th.
Golden Text: John 1:14.
The Transfiguration is a good les
son for Easter Sunday, for the glory
of the Master's radiant face on the
mountain top is akin to the glory
of his risen body.
It is one of the most impressive
scenes in the career of Jesus, a
spectacle of high religious signifi
cance. We are at once reminded
of the Baptism, for the same heav
enly voice, testifying to the divine
Sonship of the Nazarene, speaks
again. We also find here a vivid
suggestion of two supreme forces
that anticipated the advent of Je
sus; for Moses, the representative
of the law, and Elijah, a typical
prophet, both appear in the won
But the matchless worth of this
ethereal, mystical glorification is to
be found in the light it throws up
on the grandeur of the Person of
Jesus. Just what happened we do
not precisely know. Like- the birth
and resurrection narratives, the
story of the transfiguration is sat
urated with the ecstacy of poetry.
Therefore it cannot be analyzed or
dissected as though it were a rou
tine bit of fact What we can be
sure of is that Jesus was myster
iously exalted In the eyes of his dis
ciples, with a divine illumination
that strengthened mightily their
appreciation of His deity. To a les
er degree this experience came to
Moses, whose face shone after his
communion with God at Sinai; to
Stephen, whose countenance, at his
trial, seemed that of an angel; and
