Three hundred thousand Oregon
motorists must obtain renewal li-
cmses before September 1, the first
day on which the law requires ev
ery motor vehicle operator to have
new-tvpe permit, according to
Hal E. Hoss, secretary of state.
This great number, approximate
ly three-quarters of the drivers in
the state, may occasion a rusn for
permits such as swamped the ex
amination stations during the last
few days preceding June 9, when
the motor vehicle laws raised the
cost of permiU from 50c to $1. "In
the short time from May l, up to
and including June 8, 75,384 per
sons were examined,' Mr. Hoss de
clared. "The magnitude of this
task may be seen by comparison
with the 22-month period between
July 1, 1931, and May 1, 1933, when
only 21,816 drivers were examined.
On June 8, this year Huou persons
were given examinations, with ap
plicants in some localities being
taken care of until midnight Such
a congested condition will recur in
the weeks just preceding Septem
ber 1," the secretary of state point
ed out, "unless drivers arrange im
mediately for renewals."
Authority has been given by the
legislature to waive examination
of renewal applicants, except for
those 70 years of age and older, or
when, because of obvious physical
impairments or a questionable
driving record there is reason to
believe that an applicant may not
be qualified to operate a car in a
safe manner. Holders of new-type
drivers' licenses and renewals is
sued since July 1, 1931, need not
renew their permits until June 30,
1935, regardless of the expiration
date they bear.
In order to obtain a renewal per
mit, Mr. Hoss warned, it will not
be sufficient merely to mail a dol
lar. The applicant must obtain the
regulation application form either
bv mail from the secretary of
state's office in Salem, or from
state police, county sheriffs, or ex
aminers. This must be filled out
and signed before a notary public
or one of the official examiners, all
of whom have notaries' commis
sions, or other persons qualified to
administer oaths. State examin
ers will affix the notary seal free
An examiner may be located by
referring to the printed schedules
which mav be secured from the
secretary of state's office, state po
lice, or sheriffs.

Murray Warner Museum
Now Open at University
Eugene, June 27. People of Ore
gon through whose generosity the
massive museum of art was erect
ed on the University of Oregon
campus, now have tne opportunity
of inspecting daily the contents of
the building, the Murray Warner
collection of oriental art, it is an
nounced by Mrs. Murray Warner,
donor of the collection and direc
tor of the museum.
Many of the rarest treasures in
the Warner collection may be seen
by the public for the first time
since never before has there been
space or facilities for showing
them. The Warner collection is
regarded as one of the finest of its
kind in the entire country.
Mrs. Warner has made the gift
to the university in memory of her
husband, Major Murray Warner.
From 1899 to 1909 Major and Mrs.
Warner live in China, where Major
Warner befriended hundreds of
Chinese and took a keen interest
in oriental art
The building, a massive brick
structure erected at a cost of $200,
000, was the gift of the people of
the state. It was constructed with
out windows, so that no daylight
could ever strike the delicate fab
rics of the priceless objects it
houses. A remarkable system of
lighting simulates daylight.
The most interesting exhibit,
Mrs. Warner believes, is the im
pressive "throne room." At either
end of this room will be found a
throne, backed by rare and deli
cate screens, with rare old rugs for
floor coverings. Around the walls
of this room are court costumes,
coats and gowns into which gold
threads and colorful designs have
been woven with rare skill.
On the lower floor probably the
most interesting display is a group
of objects which were created in
clay by the hand of man before the
Christian era. These depict strange
men, horses and other objects. The
trappings of gold have been heav
ily encrusted with patina.
Across the hal lare other cabi
nets housing figures similar, but
not so ancient. The public is
transported back 300 years in an
other room, as it looks through a

where they visited Mrs. Devin's

Henry Peterson was in the city
vesterdav from the Eight Mile
farm. He predicts a very short
crop in that section, with grain
badly pinched. A good rain would
help the grain to till and better
the quality, he believed.
