the race.
Judge Day assumed the office last
August, by appointment of the gov

H. Fehl of vote stealing, and has since
filled the position with dignity and
conaervatlveness. His first move was
to inject business methods into han

foot down upon the constant squab

three children. He was born and

brating the fact that this old-established
Medford firm is doubling its
floor space. Despite the depression,
the Golden Rule has steadily In
creased Its business, according to C.

tractiveness of this business block.
The present remodeling 1b but one
of the many Improvements C. A.
Whillock has made In .his various
properties as a substantial contribu
tion to solving the unemployment
problem of this city. His many
friends and business associates have
lauded his courage and confidence

this section of the coast.

C. W. Whillock and C. A. Whillock
ocupylng the location to be used by
the new store up to the time it was

Some appealing values have been
arranged for Whi Hock's expansion

to the people of this district for
their patronage that has made pos
sible the expansion.
