Life how many expressions and
proverbs there are concerning it!
How many lectures, books, and pic
tures based on the subject "Life"
are given to the public. Everyone
has a different solution to this prob
lem of life, yet no one seems to have
found the correct answer to it.
"It's a great life if you don't
weaken." The truth of this phrase
sometimes seems stranger than Ac
tion. Sometimes we think it is im
possible to carry our life burdens.
We feel as if we want to drop all
our cares and worries and weaken
under our load. Yet, something
always spurs us onward and tells
us to keep going.
The problem of life carries with
it many other problems which seem
to grow more complex as we are
forced to face them. Each prob
lem appears to bring with it two
more which are more difficult still.
However, if we had no problem of
life to compute, what would be the
use of living? So we might as well
drudge onward with life to an un

Entering the last six two-week
periods devoted to directing atten
tion to six major causes of acci
dents, the statewide "Let's Quit
Killing" drive Sunday began to con
centrate educational and enforce
ment activities on defective and
unsafe equipment on Oregon auto
mobiles. Figures derived from a voluntary
free testing station operated in
Portland during the past month
have revealed an average of 17 per
cent of all cars operated In Oregon
have defective brakes, while about
37 per cent have defective lights,
sponsors of the safety drive pointed
out. Approximately 10 per cent of
more than 8,000 cars tested in Port
land were found to be defective in
both particulars lights and brakes.
Eradication of these defects by
close checking of safety elements
of equipment by motorists should
be a factor in reducing Oregon's
mounting auto death toll, believes

house just sit down and think
about the kind of light your eyes
have been enduring.
Nine chances out of ten, accord
ing to a scientific survey, you have
spent three or four hours under n
adequate light. They were either
improperly placed so that they re
flected a glare into your eyes, or
they gave you only "Fog Light"
instead of the natural light that
would have made you comfortable.
After all, your eyes were made
for the out-of-doors. Reading and
sewing and studying and writing
and all such indoor occupations
are newer, by thousands of years,
than the kind of seeing our eyes
were made for.

up for this tremendous change. But
