A new department ii being offered
to the readers at the Advocate. A
column devoted to advice on friend
ship, love, and all matters pertaining
to the home.
Anyone wishing such advice, please
write Nancy Lee, in care of this paper.
Among the diseases that most com­
monly confine individuals to their
hmoes are acute catarrhal inflamations
of the bronchail tubes or acute Bron
chitis. These conditions thus become
an economic factor because of the time
lost from gainful occupations while
confined to the home.
Dear Nancy Lee:
Acute Bronchitis usually follows the
common cold, grippe or influenza In
such cases acute bronchitis may be
looked upon either as a complication
or an extension of the other diseases.
I have been interested in your col­
umn ever since it began in The Ad­
vocate and have wanted to write and
ask your advice about a matter but
hesitated because I am somewhat tint
id. However, 1 shall be glad to read
your answer to this in the next issue
of The Advocate.

be a forerunner of influenza, measles,
typhoid fever or even small pox. A
physician should be consulted to make
the above differentiation.
Dear Perplexed:
Looking at this from an impersonal
standpoint. I would say the husband
made the mistake in allowing his wife
to hear of the episode from others,
instead of telling her himself.
There was no harm in this man
offering to drive his wife's friend home
late at night when she had no other
way of getting home except by street
car. In fact, it was a kind and courte­
ous thing for him to do. If he was
afraid of his act being misunderstood
by his wife or others, he sboud have
invited someone else to go along. How­
ever the trouble seems to have started
because the husband and you were not
frank and open about the whole affair.
It always pays to be honest and above­
board in all our dealings, then those
interested know just where we stand.
You might go and call on your
friend when her husband is home and
explain the whole thing before him,
and if he is half a man he will back
you up. Men hate to be nagged, and
will do almost anything to save them­
selves this annoyance, hence this man’s
I am sure with the proper explana­
tion the wife will understand you were
trying to protect her, instead of her
husband and yourself.

1— Any reputable man, woman or child residing in Portland or surrounding territory
aerved by Tie Advocate ia eligible to enter thia campaign and compete for a prize.
Nominations may be made at any time during the campaign.
2— No employee in the business office of The Advocate is eligible to enter thia dis­
tribution. The management reserve* the right to reject any nominations at any time
3— The winners of the prizes will be decided by their accredited votes said votes
being represented by ballots issued on subscriptions by votes issued on the nomination
coupon, the first and second week cupons and the opportunity coupons. The manage­
ment aiso reserves the right to incorporate the sale of advertising and due-bill cards
at any time during the campaign, and votes will be issued as per the one year vote
schedule in effect at that time.
4— Candidates are not confirmed to their particular town or community in which to
secure votes and subscriptions, but may take orders anywhere in this section; or, for
that matter, anywhere in the State of Oregon, or the world.
5— Cash must accompany all orders where votes are desired. There will be no ex­
ception to this rule. Candidates will be allowed to collect back subscriptions and re­
newals as well as entirely new subscriptions and vote* will be issued on both.
6— Votes are free. It costs the subscriber nothing extra to vote for his or her
favorite. Subscribers should ask for votes when paying their subscriptions.
7— Votes cannot be purchased. Every cent accepted through the campaign depart­
ment must represent subscriptions.
8— Votes are not transferable. Candidates cannot withdraw in favor of another
candidate. Should a candidate withdraw from the race, his or her votes will be can
celled. (With the consent of the campaign manager, however, a candidate may with­
draw from the race and transfer his or her votes to an entirely new candidate or new
entry.) Neither will it be permissible for candidates to give or transfer subscriptions
to another candidate. Votes on such transferred subscriptions will be subject to dis­
qualification at the discretion of the management.
9— Any effort or collusion on the part of any candidate or candidates to discourage
competition by the spreading of false rumors or exaggerated stories, or anything done
by any candidate or combination of candidates to the detriment of this newspaper will
not be tolerated. Any candidate or candidates entering into or taking part in any such
agreement, arrangement or effort, will forfeit all rights to a prize or commission.
10— Any ballot issued on subscriptions may be held in reserve and voted at the
discretion of the candidate and the campaign manager.
11— No statement or promise made by any solicitor, agent or candidate varying from
the rules and statements published through the columns of this newspaper, will be
recognized by the publishers.
12— In case of typographical or other error, it ia understood that neither the pub­
lisher nor the campaign manager shall be held responsible except for the necessary
correction upon the same.
13— Every candidate is an authorized agent of The Advocate and aa such, may collect
arrearages and subscription payments from present as well as from new subscribers.
14— Extension of subscription» will receive votes according to the vote schedule in
effect when the first subscription was paid, except that no extension votes will be
given during the final period.
16—It is distinctly understood and agreed that candidates will be responsible for all
moneys collected and that they remit such amounts in full, at frequent intervals, or
on demand, to the campaign department.
16— There will be several prizes awarded, besides a 10 per cent commission, to ALL
ACTIVE non-prize winners, but it is distinctly understood that in the event ANY
candidate becomes INACTIVE failing to make a weekly cash report, he or she will, at
the discretion of the management, become disqualified and thereby forfeit all right to
a prize or a commission.
17— The time of May 2 to May 13 will be known as opportunity days. During these
days, there will be a vote bonus of 100,000 extra votes for every three renewal sub.
scriptions of not less than one year each; 200,000 extra votes for every three new sub.
scriptions of not less than one year each, and 500,000 extra votes for one six-year sub­
scription either ne wor renewal, but only ten six-year subscriptions can be turned in
to apply on this extra offer.
18— To insure absolute fairness in the awarding of the prizes, the race will be
brought to a close under a "sealed ballot box” system, and will be under the personal
supervision of two or more judges selected from the Advisory Board. During the en­
tire last week of the campaign, the box—locked and sealed—will repost in a con­
venient place, where candidates and their friends will deposit their final collections
and reserve votes. And not until the race has been declared closed will the seals be
broken, the box unlocked and the judges begin the final count. In this way, no one—
not even the campaign manager—can possibly know the voting strength of the re­
spective candidates, which precludes any possibility of favoritism and insures fairness
to the minutest degree.
19— The management reserves the right to amend or add to the rules of this cam­
paign, if necessary, for the protection of the interests of both candidates and this
newspaper. The right is also reserved to increase and add to the list of prizes.
20— The Advocate guarantees fair and impartial treatment to all candidates; should
any question arise, the decision of the management will be absolute and final.
21— Two hundred thousand extra votes will he awnrded each candidate with every
three one-year subscription, or the equivalent, turned in during their first week in the
campaign; 160,000 extra votes will be awarded each candidate with every three ons-
year subscription, or the equivalent, turned in during their second week in the cam­
paign. These arc in addition and above all regular votes but this arrangement will
be in effect only during the first two periods of the campaign.
22— All extra votes will be issued and credited to the accounts of the various can­
didates at the convenience of the campaign manager.
Campaign opens today—closes June 25, 1931.
