off to about 40,000,000. Instead of
200,000 bales of hops being used,

Relief Body Warns
Against Fever Ticks
For general distribution, particu
larly in eastern Oregon, the State
Relief committee has issued warn
ings to all work relief project man
agers and superintendents to guard
against any appearance of what is
known as Rocky Mountain spotted
fever, also known as tick-fever,
black fever or blue disease, follow
ing word received from Harney
county that two deaths have oc
curred near Burns, and that two
cases are under treatment in Jef
ferson county, though none of the
cases are SERA employees.
Warning bulletins have been sent
to all counties of the state, particu
larly emphasized east of the Cas
cades, the most dangerous time be
ing in the spring and early summer
up to the middle of July.
The safety department of the
State Relief committee, in Its bulle

physician in all known cases. De
scribing the ticks as "hatching from
eggs and first feeding on small ro
dents, squirrels, graydiggers, mice,
etc., then they drop off and molt,
later attaching themselves to larg
er mammals, such as rabbits, dogs,
and sheep, until they are again fed
with blood. Again they drop off
and molt. During the first stage
they have only six legs. The final
stage is the adult having eight legs.
The female is the dangerous insect,
as the male is not known to attack
human beings. ,
"The adult female is over 1-8 inch
long, of reddish-brown color, with
a white shield extending from the
head to the middle of the back. The
male has a pattern of white and
brown stripes and dashes over the
entire back. When unfed they are

they are larger than a coffee bean.

skin do not pull them out violently,

New Liability Law
Is Driver Protection
Johnny Jones, whose car crashed
into another machine, Injuring Mrs.
Henry Smith, will not be permitted
to drive again until he pays dam
ages imposed by Judge Williams'
court, and until he gives proof he
can pay any damages imposed af
ter accidents in the future.
This, in part, is the meaning of
the Safety Responsibility act passed
by the last Oregon state legislature
and scheduled to go Into effect on
July 1, according to the safety de
partment of the Oregon State Mo
tor association. s
The law, now affecting more than
65 per cent of all motorists in the
United States, is designed to pro
mote safety on the streets and high
ways by eliminating the careless,
Irresponsible driver who heretofore
had little to lose as the result of a
Summed up by the motor associa
tion, the Safety Responsibility act
is as follows:
1. The driver who has been held
responsible by courts for death, in
jury or property damage in amount
exceeding $100, may not drive again
until he has satisfied any final judg
ment pending against him, and fur
nished proof of his ability to re
spond to damages caused by him in
2. A driver convicted of violation
requiring mandatory revocation of
operators' license may not drive
again until he has furnished proof
of financial responsibility and until
his license has been,, regularly re
stored. 3. Registration card and license
plates of motor vehicle registered
in the name of the convicted per
son shall be suspended, provided the
car was the one in which the viola
tion was committed.
4. Suspension of motor vehicle
registration may be averted only if
an actual transfer of title is made
within five days, or if within that
period adequate proof of financial
responsibility is given.
5. Proof of financial responsibil
ity must be maintained for three
years, at the end of which time, if
driver is not involved in additional
offense requiring mandatory revo
cation, he resumes his original sta
tus. 6. Financial responsibility is es
tablished when cash, bond, other
surety or an insurance policy has

ity to respond in damages to the
extent of $5,000 for any one person
injured or killed, $10,000 for two or
more persons injured or killed, and
for property damage in the amount
of $1,000 resulting from one acci
dent. 8. Whenever the above amounts
have been credited upon any judg-'
ment rendered in excess of these
amounts-, such judgment is then

Fabric With Odd Tricks
Has Name Like Chemical
Whether women make their own
clothes or buy them ready-made,
they are confronted these days with
a tremendous and bewildering as
sortment of fabrics from which to
Most perplexing of all, perhaps,
are the synthetic fiber materiais
known as acetates and rayons.
These two materials, both made
from wood pulp or cotton linters
(the fuzz that adheres to cotton
seed after it has been ginned), look
somewhat the same. But they are
vastly different in the methods of
cleaning, pressing and dyeing that
each requires, according to Mrs.
Azalea Sager, extension specialist in
clothing and textiles at Oregon
An acetate fabric, because it has
been changed chemically, must be
pressed with only a slightly warm
iron, because a hot iron will cause
it to melt or gum. Acetate fabrics
may be dry cleaned, but are des
troyed by such stain removers as
acetone, glacial acetic acid, chloro
form or hot alcohol. Acetates will
not take ordinary commercial dyes,
but special dyes have been manu
factured for them.
Acetates have some special ad
vantages however Mrs. Sager points
out They shed water rather than
absorb it so they seldom water spot
They also lose strength less readily
when wet than do rayons.
Some simple tests can be made
right in the store if desired, either
on samples or on the seams of gar
ments whether the material is a
rayon or an acetate, Mrs. Sager
says. An acetate fabric ignites
readily and burns rapidly. The
flame is small and blue, and the
material appears to melt, sputter-

MONTHLY DELINQUENT LIST ISSUED
Delinquent debtors trailed from county to county, and from state to state. Members ex
change information, through the medium of our state office, reporting those who do not
properly respect their credit.
We do not guess at credit information, but in our report to members we list debtors' names,
addresses, and amount of their indebtedness.
ALL DEBTORS NOTIFIED
Before listing th name of any debtor, we give him due notice and ample time in which to
take care of his past-due accounts. It is not our purpose to embarrass any man, rich or
poor, who does his best to meet his obligations. Names of debtors are not removed for any
reason until their accounts are paid.
UNPAID CLAIMS OFFERED FOR SALE
Where payment is persistently refused, unpaid claims are offered for sale to the highest
bidder, and are sold for whatever they will bring, for the benefit of creditors.
NO COMMISSION ON COLLECTIONS
We are not operating a collection agency debtors must pay direct to their creditors. No
filing fees. No docket fees. When collections are made, you get the money. No contracts
to sign and regret.
