played football at Lexington Friday
afternoon. The new six-man game

exchange student from Oregon State
college who has gone to China to
spend a year at Lingnan university,

ception' was made in Adlard's case
after his parents gave permission
for him to remain. American repre
sentatives of the Chinese university
abandoned the exchange plan in
most instances this year because of
the anxiety of parents and the un
certainty of war conditions in China.
CCC Spike Camps
To Get Out Wood
Stacking up a wood pile that will
be five and a half miles long will
soon start in six of the Soil Conser
vation Service CCC camps in Wash
ington, Oregon and Idaho, accord
ing to arrangements recently made
by Earl Victor, assistant administra
tor for the service and Lt. J. H.
Hughes from CCC headquarters at
Two spike camps will be set up to
secure part of this wod osupply; one
at the old Tucanno camp between
Pomeroy and Dayton; the other at
the old Willow Creek camp at Enida,
south of St. Maries, Idaho.
At Willow Creek CCC enrollees
will get out approximately 1200
cords for the Moscow and Pullman
camps. At the Tucannon camp they
will get out wood for Camp Dayton.
Fuel wood for the Pomeroy camp
will be logged on public land by
private individuals and hauled the
24 miles into camp by CCC trucks.
The same arrangement will be used
by the camp at Heppner. Both the
cutting and hauling of fuel wood
for the Walla Walla camp will be
done by contract.
Considerable saving in fuel costs
will be effected this year, according
to Victor. Under present plans, win
ter fuel supply for the six camps
will cost less than half as much as
it did last year.
Rex Ellis, state senator from Pen
dleton, was a visitor in the city Fri
day. Mr. Ellis made a specialty of
attempting to amend the truck and
bus law in the interests of the small
farm operators at the last session of
the legislature, and while organized
interests prevented his accomplish
ing his full aim he is still working
on the matter, gathering additional
data on which to base a future case.

Oregon Traffic
A series of weekly articles on
the problem of Highway Safety
by Earl Snell, Secretary of State.
As the result of convictions in
Oregon courts for violations of the
motor vehicle laws, 153 drivers' li
censes were revoked or suspended
during the month of July. More than
a thousand convictions for various
minor offenses were reported to this
office during the same period-
Records in my office indicate that
approximately 97 per cent of those
who suffer revocation of their driv
ing privileges are unable to secure
reinstatement in less than three
years. The majority of these cases
come from drunken driving charges.
It is well to remember that in any
case where a judgment in excess of
$100 resulting from a motor vehicle
accident goes unsatisfied for 30 days,
revocation, of the defendant's oper
ator's license is mandatory. In such
cases, proof of financial responsi
bility must be filed and maintained
for a period of three years, even
though the judgment is satisfied be
fore the expiration of that time.
A number of Oregon residents
have had their drivers' licenses re
voked as the result of convictions or
forfeiting bail in the courts of other
states. In either of these cases, if the
charge is one that would require
mandatory revocation should the
offense be committed in this state,
the same procedure must be followed
if the conviction or bail forfeiture
would be in another state.
Careful driving with due consid
eration for the rights of others and
strict adherence to the laws is not
only common sense in each individ
ual case, but will avoid serious pen
alties and do much to help elimin
ate Oregon's traffic deaths.
The hundreds of letters received
by me commenting on the safety
work being carried on by my de
partment, the columns of newspaper
space so liberally contributed to the
cause of improved motoring condi
tions on the highways and the gen
erous cooperation of radio stations
in advancing this work, are all most
gratifying, and furnish convincing
proof that substantial progress is
being made in the effort to make the
motorists of Oregon "safety con
scious" and reduce the terrible toll
of life and property which we are
experiencing as the result of motor
vehicle accidents.
Many states and cities are giving
a practical demonstration of the fact
that accident records such as Ore
gon's can be improved. They are
showing the way to safer driving
and consequently greater enjoyment
of the fine highways on account of
the great reduction of traffic haz
ards. Serious consideration of the facts
and a complete realization of the
consequences of the problem mean
an aroused public opinion that can
only result in a strict and absolute
enforcement of the law and the pe
nalizing of all types of reckless mo
tor car operations.
These things all point to the ulti
mate success of the work now un
dertaken. This work will be con
tinued and carried forward to every
section of the state during the next
few months and with the same effi
cient cooperation now being accord
ed, cannot fail to accomplish note
worthy results.
Obey the traffic laws, know and
follqw the rules of safe driving, and
help eliminate Oregon's traffic
Grasses Continue Outstanding
Canyon City An inspection of the
Wickiup grass nursery and grazing
plots late in August showed the
same grasses continuing to. give the
best account of themselves, says
County Agent R- E. Brooke- In the
nursery plots these were, in order,
smooth bromegrass, crested wheat
grass, quack grass and slender wheat
grass. In the grazing plots smooth
brome grass and quack grass con
tinued to show their value for this
purpose. The bunch grasses have
more or less disappeared, except
where the plots were opened to graz
ing late in the season, Brooke said.
An, examiner of operators and
chauffeurs from the secretary of
state's office will be in Heppner at
the courthouse, Thursday, Oct. 14,
between the hours of 10 a. m. and 4
p. m. All those wishing permits or
licenses to drive cars should get in
touch with the examiner at this time.
