Gasoline Sales Up
In May Over June
April gasoline sales in Oregon
totalled 41,407,652 gallons, a 10
percent climb over sales of the
preceding month, Secretary of
State Earl T. Newbry reported
April sales a year ago totalled
40,852,055, according to the secre.
tary of state's gasoline tax divi
sion records.
Gross sales for the month were
$2,484,5S4.89, a jump of approx
imately $142,000 over collections
for the same month last year.
Most of the gain is the result of
the one cent per gallon tax in
crease which took effect last July
.1, Newbry said.

4-H Clubbers to

In Big Coliseum
Youngsters between the ages

er, states that arrangements are

steps" of their respective living
organizations where counselors
will take them in tow for their
stay on the state college campus.
The following day, Wednesday,
June 14, has been designated
"Get Acquainted Day," and Dan
Poling, O.S.C. dean of men, will
officially welcome the 4-H club

21 Persons Die In
Traffic Accidents
First Third of '50
Oregon automobile accidents
have claimed just over five lives
for each one hundred million
miles of driving in the first four
months of this year, Secretary
of State Earl T. Newbry reported
Newbry said the figure is based
on the average mileage death
rate for the months of January
through April, computed from
fbtal traffic fatalities and motor
vehicle mileage as estimated
from gasoline sales for the pe
riod. The four-month death rate
is 5.1, compared with 6.3 for the
entire year of 1949.
Although total deaths were
higher than those recorded in
the first four months of last year,
motor vehicle travel increased
even more to bring about a reduc.
tion in the mileage death rate.
April travel is estimated at
approximately 492 million miles,
highest yet recorded during that
month. Twenty-one persons died
in traffic accidents.
A drivers license examiner will
be on duty at the city hall in
Heppner between the hours of
10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Tuesday, June
13. Persons wishing licenses or
permits to drive are asked to get
in touch with the examiner well
ahead of the scheduled closing
hour in order to assure completi
tion of applications with mini
mum of delay.
