Sale of High Grade
At Salem Monday
Another of the purebred live
stock auction sales for w hich Sa
lem is rapidly becoming noted
is the private offering of Bonelli,
Ward and Cook Polled Hereford
cattle to be held at the stale fair
grounds on Monday, September
27. Seven bulls, 44 bred heifers
and three open heifers are includ
ed, according to R. A. Ward of
Halsey, who was in Salem this
week making final arrangements
for the event
Bonelli Cattle company of Sau
gus, Cal., has consigned 32 ani
mals featuring the get of the
$30,000 bull Trumode Domino
64th Ralph Cook of Medford will
offer seven bulls and heifers.
Ward is to enter 15.
Polled Herefords are naturalyl
hornless, a feature popular with
fat stock buyers due to the free
dom from bruises often caused in
shipping horned cattle. Cowboys
also claim the lack of horns
makes for ease of handling, the
danger of being pronged by sharp
horns being eliminated.
According to the laws of hered
ity horns are recessive, that is,
polled cattle never have horns,
but horned cattle occasionally are
parents to mutants or "sports"
which are hornless.
The Polled Hereford breed orig
inated in 1901 due to the enter
prise of Warren Gammon of Des
Moines, Iowa, who sent out in-
he purchased all the bulls and
seven of the cows. From this
foundation the breed developed,
an association was formed in
1!K)7 which during last year re
corded more than 27,000 animals.
An auction of 55 Bonelli Polled
Herefords at Corvallis last March
averaged $455 with a top female
at $1060. Cattle for his sale will
be on display at the state fair
grounds all day Sunday before
the sale. Catalogues may be had
by writing to R. A. Ward, Halsey,

Up, Death Rate
Down In Traffic
Recently completed tabula
tions of Oregon's traffic accident
record for the first six months of
19-18 reveal that accidents and
injuries increased nearly three
percent over the same period last
year, but deaths declined almost
10 percent, Secretary of State Earl
T. Newbry has announced.
He added that additional repots
of deaths through the month of
August improves the fatality de
crease to 14 percent from the fig
ure for last year. Throughout tlte
year, travel has remained ap
proximately 10 percent higher
than 1917, he said.
Greatest decline in any acci
dent classification was in pedes
trian deaths. Forty were killed
in contrast with 51 in the same
period last year for a decline of
22 percent. More than half the
pedestrian fatalities, 23 out of 40,
were under 15 or over IS years
of age, Newbry pointed out. He
said crossing streets between in
tersections was the leading fac
tor In bringing death to walkers.
Railroad crossing mishaps led
in the fatality increases, with 14
losing their lives as compared
with only six last year. This fig
ure already exceeds the complete
grade crossing toll for 1947, the
