Facts for Drivers
From the office of Earl W. Snell,
Secretary of State.
Anyone who has done much driv
ing in fog knows the feeling of
helplessness which overcomes one
when the thick, cottony blanket
settles down in dead earnest, and
one has many miles to drive.
Here are a few facts to remember
iwo-tnirds or the normal year s
fog occurs during the months of
October, November and December,
with November being the worst
month of the year. Fog is usually
much heavier at night than in the
daytime. Ordinarily it occurs on sev
eral consecutive days so that the
driver in most cases should be ex
The driver's- first reaction to fog
should be to reduce his speed so
that he will still be able to stop
within the assured clear distance
ahead. In the daytime, he should
have his headlights turned on in the
"parking" position, to make his car
more readily visible to other drivers.
At night, he should drive with his
headlights dimmed or depressed, in
order that the roadway immediately
ahead of the car will be lighted. If
the lights are left in ordinary driv
ing position, the rays will simply be
thrown back into the driver's eyes,
as the fog is composed of tiny drops
of water "which act like reflecting
Many drivers like to use yellow
or amber auxiliary driving lights
during fog. Ordinarily these lights
should be adjusted rather low so
that they sweep the surface of the
highway, since their purpose is to
illuminate some surface or object by
which the driver can guide his ve

Income for 1939
Oregon farm income for 1939, as
that of the country as a whole, may
be moderately larger than in 1938 if
present trends continue as analyzed
by agricultural economists. This is
the word brought back from Wash
ington, D. C, by L. R. Breithaupt,
extension agricultural economist at
Oregon State college, who repre
sented the extension service at the
annual agricultural outlook confer
ence. A brief summary of the agricul
tural outlook for Oregon is con
tained in the current issue of "Ag
ricultural Situation and Outlook"
just published and distributed to
various offices throughout the state.
More detailed discussion of the out
look as applied to individual enter
prises will be included in later is
sues throughout the year as usual.
The more favorable outlook for
farm income in Oregon is dependent
upon maintainance of normal gross
volume farm production and
strengthening of consumer purchase
ing power as is predicted by the
bureau of agricultural economics.
Farm production expenses are ex-
pected to average about the same
as in 1938.
The outlook is relatively more
favorable for farm families produc
ing crops that reach the consumer
without long storage, except where
such quickly used crops are in-
creased greatly in volume or where
they have experienced prices in 1938
raised by government action.
While in Washington Professor
Briethaupt acted for the college in
proceedings before the Federal Com
munications commission on behalf of
the state owned radio station, KOAC.
He reports that an application has
been filed by the college, through
counsel, asking the commission to
grant a rehearing of .the case of the
Salt River Valley Broadcasting com
pany which is seeking to use the
same wavelength used by KOAC.
It is believed that such use would
result in serious impairment of
KOAC'S service, so the college is
asking an opportunity to present
evidence before the commission acts
on the examiner's report which was
favorable to the request of the Ari
zona station, KOY.
