DR. GRAY VISITS.
Dr. and Mrs. A. B. Gray arrived
Friday from their home at Dorris,
Cal., for a visit of a few days at the
home of Mr. and Mrs. A. E. Burkes
bine. Dr. Gray is making good im
provement from his recent illness,

godspeed to full recovery.
Since going to Dorris three years
ago, Dr. Gray has constructed a new
hospital, and had everything well
suited to take care of his large prac
tice in the mill town when he became
ill. The winter was quite severe
there, the doctor saying it was the
worst January he ever experienced
any place. Situated on the Klamath
Falls-Weed cut-off, Dorris has ac
cess to the outside world over a fine
highway. Dr. and Mrs. Gray ex
pected to leave today on their re
turn home, taking their two babies
who have been at the home of Mr.
and Mrs. Burkenbine for several
GUY HALL MARRIED.
Relatives here have received word
of the recent marriage of Guy Hall,
formerly of this city, who took as his
bride Miss Mary Fay of Rawlins,
Wyo., in that city. The marriage
was performed in the Catholic rec
tory with Father William Short
reading the impressive ceremony
Mr. and Mrs. Serge Larsen were at
tendants. Mrs. Hall is the daughter
of Mrs. Catherine Fay of Rawlins,
having lived there all her life and
being a graduate of Rawlins high
school. Mr. Hall has been a resi
dent of Rawlins for 10 or 11 years.
The Rawlins paper credited Mr. and
Mrs. Hall with being popular young
people, Mr. Hall being engaged in
railroad work. They went to Den
ver on a wedding trip, and on the
return were expected to make their
home at 804 Eleventh street, Raw
lins. Mr. Hall is a brother of Mrs.
Earl Gordon of Heppner and Mrs.
Wm. Smethurst of Lexington. He
attended grade and high school here
before going to Rawlins.
Types of Kitchen Ware
Discussed by Miss Case
Which of the many types of cook
ing utensils now on the market is
the best choice for the modern
There is no hard and fast answer
to this question, according to Miss
Lucy Case, extension specialist in
foods and nutrition at Oregon State
college. Each ware has its own ad
vantages and the homemaker must
weigh them to decide which suits her
individual needs and tastes.
Contrary to a persistent but erro
neous idea, cooking in aluminum is
not harmful, Miss Case says, and in
this opinion she has the backing of
the American Medical association
and the State Board of Health. The
discoloration of the aluminum which
commonly occurs, especially when
in contact with alkaline substances,
is due to aluminum oxide. It can be
removed by cooking such acid foods
as tomatoes or rhubard, and these
are still good food after such cook
It pays to buy good quality ware,
but not necessarily the most expen
sive, Miss Case says. Cheap enamel
soon chips, and cheap aluminum be
comes pitted with small holes. Glass
and heavy walled aluminum are us
usually the most expensive. The lat
ter is not more effective for cooking
vegetables than any other kind, but
for the less tender cuts of meat and
other foods requiring slow cooking
the heavy walled utensil has ad
vantages. For vegetables the main
thing is quick cooking, and it is best
to have the water boiling before put
ting them in to cook. Miss Case
sees no necessity for cooking vege
tables without water, as no food
value is lost if the water is saved for
gravy, soups, and other uses, she
Whatever the type of ware, a
broad, flat-bottom sausepan, with
straight sides and tightly fitting
cover makes the most efficient use
of heat, Miss Case points out. Seams
and angles in pans are undesirable,
and the angle between the side and!
bottom of the pan should be slight
San Francisco, April 21. Three
separate motor cavalcades from Or
egon, one of them led by Governor
Charles H. Martin, and an aerial car
avan, will converge on San Francisco
for the Golden Gate Bridge Fiesta

This was the word received today
by Supervisor Arthur M. Brown, Jr.,

C. T. Haas of Portland as grand
Information from Gunn indicated
that Oregon's participation is likely
to excel that of any other Western
state. Gunn said that Governor Mar
tin is determined to make his state's
showing second only to that of Cal
ifornia. In addition to writing to nearly
200 outstanding Oregonians to com
prise a Golden Gate Bridge Fiesta
committee for Oregon, Governor
Martin has addressed approximately
200 mayors of cities and towns of
the state "enlisting their aid for the
Fiesta and asking them to serve as
chairmen of the cavalcades' com
mittee in their individual communi
ties." The first Oregon motor cavalcade
will join a contingent from the Pa
cific Northwest at Portland on May
24. It will leave the Pacific high
way at Grants Pass and follow the
Redwood highway from Crescent
City south into San Francisco.
A second delegation will leave As
toria May 24 and travel down the
coast highway of Oregon and down
the Redwood highway to San Fran
cisco. The third Oregon group will merge
with a caravan originating in Spo
kane and passing thru The Dalles
May 24, and Klamath Falls May 25.
All cavalcades will be so timed
as to arrive in San Francisco on
May 26, the day before the Golden
Gate Bridge Fiesta opens.

of the Fiesta, reported that Portland
