Oregon and from numerous parts of
California. j
The arrival of these caravans will

all parts of the Pacific coast. One
caravan Is starting from Victoria, B.

Chambers Cooperate. i
Early Information Indicates that
every county In California will be
represented, in addition to nearly 100
secretaries 'and managers of chambers
of commerce. Complete plans for the
caravans have not yet been entirely
completed but are systematically pro
gressing. With the arrival of these
visitors from the widely scattered
sections of the west, southern Oregon
is assured of a wealth of favorable
advertising wftlch Is also seen as the
foundation for attracting new settlers
to this section.
As a result of celebration prepara
tions, Medford and southern Oregon
have received publicity over the en
tire nation. Letters have been re
ceived from residents of Ohio, Illi
nois, Pennsylvania, Colorado, Wash-,
lngton and other states seeking more
Information concerning the event.
Press services have expressed Interest
and have sent out a number of Jub
ilee pictures to many subscribing
newspapers. Magazine stories are also
to appear In a &iort time.
Girls Spread Word.
Last week San Francisco and bay
papers devoted much space to the
celebration as a result of a visit there
of two local young women, Miss Beth
Chase and Miss Boardman, who were
given a royal welcome by the bay
cities.
Medford Is in the limelight
throuhout the length of the coast,
giving further assurance that at. least
50,000 people will have visited this
city and Jacksonville during Jubilee
week.
Preparations for the celebration are
rapidly advancing, with every detail
of the big endeavor receiving careful
attention to assure the complete suc
cess of what Is planned to be ttie out
standing event In the west this year.

PAST
Farm loans for the Gold Hill, Phoe
nix and Medford N. F. L. A. during
the past six months, have totaled
I&7.000 In 46 loans, according to fig
ures made known today by Lei and J.
Knox, secretary and treasurer for the
association. Loans are also being
made in other sections of the county,
through other N. F. L. A. representa
tives. Mr. Knox, who is also correspondent
for the land bank commissioner's loan
fund, stated that the federal land
banks maks loans only upon first
mortgages on farm lands.
"Loans may be made up to 850000
and for not less than $100 to any
one Individual, but preference Is given
to loans of less than $10,000. Loans
from $25,000 to $50,000 may be made
only with the approval of the land
bank commissioner. No loan can ex
ceed SO per cent of the appraised
normal value of the land mortgaged
and 20 per cent of the appraised value
of the permanent, Insured improve
ments thereon," he pointed vout.
No loans are being made under the
Medford or Talent Irrigation district
pending the completing of the re
financing program, according to Mr.
Knox.
Announcement has been received
here by Mr. Knox, that hereafter,
the federal land bank loans and land
bank commissioner's loans will be
made through the federal land bank
In bonds of the federal farm mort
gage corporation, which bonds are
guaranteed by the United States gov
ernment, both as to principal and Interest.
According to word from Wm. I.
Myers, governor of the Farm Credit
administration, the bonds are
readily marketable as United States
government bonds, are lawful security
for 15-day borrowings by member
banks of the federal reserve system,
and are exempt from all federal, state,
municipal and local taxation, except
surtaxes and estate, inheritance, and
gift taxes.
The bonds are considered lawful in
vestments and may be accepted as
security for all fiduciary trust and
public funds of which the deposit or
investment Is under the authority or
control of the government.
The corporation bonds are issued
In denominations of $100, (500. $1000,
$5000 and $10,000. Odd amounts al
lowed on loans will be paid In cash,
and where it Is necessary for the as
sociation to pay taxes, they also will
be paid In cash, Mr. Knox said.
Mr. Myers' statement points out
that "loans which have been applied
for and approved, but on which the
cash has not been paid out, as well as
those approved by the bank in the
future, will be financed on the above
basis.
In the Eagle Point district the
Rogue River National Farm Loan
association has Ross Kline as secre
tary, and Warren Patterson Is secre
tary for the Central Point N. F. A. L.
in that section. F. L. Nutter is secre
tary at Ashland, Mr. Knox said.

A modern dwelling has been made
of the house In which General Sher
man had his headquarters after seiz
ing Atlanta, Ga during the Civil
war.
Pedestrians stopping before the
show windows of Montgomery Ward
and company's local store on South
Central today were seen to operate
a number of Illuminated and mobile
displays by merely touching the win
dow glass.
' A thin, disc-shaped sheet of tin
foil fastened flat against the inside
of the window pane does the trick. It
is connected by means of a halr-ltko
wire to an electrical device or "magic
box" which Is concealed from view.
Some observers were referring to
the device as an "electric hand," the
nearly invisible wlro resembling a
"nerve" and tho magic box an "elec
tric brain." Onlookers could, by
touching the "hand," command the
fascinating contraption to operate
this or that display in the window,
whether it be a fan. a washer, a
vacuum cleaner, or an Illuminated
display.
Thcufih the window displays re
sponded when a pedestrian placed his
hand on the glass near the disc, the
so-called "elertrlc hand" is a thousand
times more sensitive than the human
touch.
Engineers of the Wcstlnghousc
Lamp company, who designed and
built the device In their laboratories
at Bloom fie Id, New Jersey, say that
an electric current of 1 micro-am-phcre.
or two milllonths of one am
phere. operates the device. It con
sumes only 65 milllonths of one watt.
they say. A standard 25-watt Maz.la
lamp consumes nearly 400,000 times
as much wattage.
The heart of the mechanism Is an
amplifier tube, similar to, but much
more sensitive than an ordinary radio
tube. Electricity flowing through
this tube Is controlled by the tinfoil
disc which forms one-half of a con
denser. A pedestrian, touching the win
dow, forms the other half of the
condenser. His body completes the
circuit which allows an infinitesimal
current to flow through the tube. It
Is like tho opening and closing of a
valve. When closed, the condenser
or valve allows current to flow to the
magic box and operates one of the
numerous relays which are similar to
those in an automatic telephone
system.
As many times as the pedestrian
continues to touch the glass, dif
ferent displays in the window ope
rate in turn.
"At the world's fair in Chicago last
year a larger display operated by this
same principle attracted more spec
tators than any other feature at the
fair." accordlnc: to C. D. Bean, local
Montgomery Ward manager.

DELINQUENT TAX
IS
PORTLAND. April 25. (AD The
burden of tax delinquencies should
be shared by the stato rattier than
placed all on counties, the Multno
mah county tax supervising and con
servation commission pointed out to
Governor Julius L, Meier today.
"The financial difficulty in which
Multnomah county finds itself Is due
In large part to the fact that the
county must pay out of its general
fund t,he full amount of taxes de
manded by the state, regardless of
delinquencies In tax payments," the
commission's annual financial report
which was submitted to the governor
said.
Advances made by the county to
the state now exceed $1,000,000. tho
report continued. "This has become
a serious burden on Multnomah
county, and all other counties In the
state, which cannot be lifted until
tax collections return to normal."
The commission also expressed the
belief that the entire industrial and
commercial structure of the com
munity rather than. just the owner
of real property, should Viare the ob
ligation of financing old age pensions.
Wool production in 20 northern
and southern hemisphere countries

Here's the new
smart
HERE is the climax of 1934
Ford car design.
From its gracefully-slanted
radiator grille to its smoothly
tapered rear, this new VIC
TORIA says S-TY-L-B in every
air-streamed line. Its extra
smartness of line, and brilliant
enamni 6nish, will let you park
it proudly beside cars costing
five timt much But this
car's beauty is not just skin deep.
Consider, for instance, the
proved dependability and cham
pionship performance of the
Ford V-cypCt 8 cylinder engine.
Consider its economy. Al
though the Ford V8 will out
perform most high-priced cars,
it ts the most economical automo
bile that Ford has ever built.
Consider too, the safety and
strength of a one-piece, welded
steel body and safety glass
throughout.
These features do not show in
the lines of the beautiful new
Victoria, but they show quickly
enough from the driver's seat
and in your pocket book.
