Two fighting teams, one struggling
to hold the coveted top bracket of
the league and the other resolved to
acquire the position, returned to the
floor to boost the third quarter score
17 to 21, still favoring Fossil.
Fossil drew a good lead in the first
minutes of the last quarter, but with
three minutes remaining in the ball
game, a re-enlivened crew of Mus
tangs took up where Fossil's scor
ing left of. The score board showed
Fossil leading, 25 to 24, with one
minute to go. While Fossil proceeded
to stall, Heppner fought for the ball
and got it and after dodging between
over-excited spectators lining the
floor, Drake let go for a basket just
as the referee blew the whistle end
ing the game; however, the battle
was not over. The game had been
ended by the official time-keeper,
whose whistle was not heard above
the roar of the crowd, prior to the
referee, ending the game. Basket

Drivers who are leaving parking
places at the curb must be careful
to yield the right of way to closely
approaching automobiles, and wait
until they can safely pull into the
traffic stream, Secretary of State
Earl Snell declares. Many persons
mistakenly think it is up to the
driver in the street to watch for
cars pulling out of parking places,
and give way to them.
The lowering of the traffic accident
rate in Oregon has been strongly felt
by insurance companies in this state,
many of which have operated with
reduced premiums because of the
smaller amount of claims being paid
out. One large general insurance
firm in Salem reports adjusting but ,

of any size during 1938.
