nance," and instructed the po
lice chief not to enforce the ordi

' 'City Attorney 1. H. Carnahan
old the council that Orvllle Et-
ler, attorney for the League of
Oregon Cities, had suggested tne
lower fee would make the Klam
ath ordinance more defensible in
ft les-al test, . " '
Another change was made In
the regulation of vendors. In the
original measure, salesmen of
the Holy- Bible, and newsboys
telling newspapers and maga
slnes, were exempted from the
license requirement. In the new
bill, the words "and magazines"
were stricken.
.:. When the matter came up for
discussion last night, Council
man Rollin Cantrall offered a
motion for repeal of the old ordi
nance. In the same motion, he
moved that the new ordinance
be held in abeyance until the
lesal situation regarding such
ordinances is clarified by the su
preme court of the -United
States. ' "-:
L- i Legal Fight Seen
His motion lost for want of a
iecohd. The council then pro
ceeded with the first reading of
the $5 fee ordinance, which will
not become effective for three
weeks. Meantime, no arrests will
fee made.
Representatives of Jehovah's
Witnesses, religious sect at
rtiom the ordinance Is aimed,
nave told city officials they will
carry a legal fight on the mea
sure to high courts.
Speaking of this situation last
night. Mayor John Houston
warned the council:
"If there is a possibility of
throwing us into a costly law
suit we had better : do . some
thinking. The city is In no posi
tion to fight a long lawsuit,"
Wording Chanced
The United States supreme
court has before it a petition for
a rehearing on a decision on an
ordinance similar to that passed
in Klamath Falls. - If the court
'should rule unf avorably on such
ordinances, neither " the old or
She new Klamath ordinances
Would be enforceable, it was in
dicated in the council's discus
sion. ..
Councilman Andrew Bussman
! pointed out that in the terms of
the new ordinance, as well as
the old, anyone selling from an
"established place of business"
Would not need a license. He
aid any organization could
therefore set up a place of husi
ness and continue to peddle
. tracts without a license. Attor
ney Carnahan was instructed to
-mange ine wording 10 eliminate
.this objection. ';. -
'. The original - Jehovah's Wit
nesses ordinance, will go legally
Into effect September 24. It was
passed 30 days prior to that, but
was not effective in that period.
Only indirect mention was
made at the council meeting Qf
Sunday's rioting against Jeho
vah's Witnesses.
Procedure Recommended -i
Attorney Carnahan said that
'possibly the city officials will
feel they do not need a licensing
order now. He said he had been
told there would be no more
pamphleteering here ' by Jeho
vah's Witnesses. .
' He added he was not advocat
ing the measures taken against
the Witnesses Sunday, but that
perhaps they: were effective.
Councilman Martin remarked
that he believed the city should
proceed with its ordinances di
rected at the Witnesses.
'Councilman Wiesendanger
asked if it were possible for the
council to adopt an ordinance
charging a fee of $1 for conven
tions to be held in the city. The
purpose, he said, would be to
make it possible for the council
to. permit certain organizations

i From Constipation?
Too many folks go on suffering
from constipation when there's
no need in tho world for them to
do so Why? Simply because
one of the commonest causes of
constipation Is lack of "bulk
food" In the diet. In such cases,
cathartics and purges can give
only temporary relief!
If this is your trouble, you can
expect lasting relief from con
stipation simply by eating
This crisp, delicious cereal sup
piles the "bulk" you may need
geta at the cause of your trouble
and corrects It. Start eating
and drink plenty of water. See
what a wonderful difference It
makes when you correct the
cause Instead of trying to "rem
edy" the resultl ALL-BRAN Is
made by Kellogg'a In Battle
Creek. If your condition Is not
helped by this simple treatment,
It's wise to see a doctor.
Ten Water Commandments
Released for Protection
In Case of Air Attack
Ten water commandments for
your protection during air raids
were released today by the Ore
gon state board of health from
Kenneth H, Spin, acting state
sanitary engineer.
Spies pointed out that an air
raid may cause damage to water
works and distribution mains.
"the intricate network of piping
which carries safe drinking wa
ter into your home."
The following "ten command
ments" are based on two and
one-half years of British experi
ence: 1. Keep available at least one
quart bottle filled with drinking
water for each person in the
house. Reason: "You may never
miss the water until the well
runs dry."
2. Always turn water faucets
off everywhere in the house
when water service has failed.
Reason: When water comes on,
you may have forgotten about
that open faucet upstairs. Water
will be wasted, damage may re
sult from flooding and water
pressure will be lowered all over
the city.
3. DO NOT fill bath tubs with
water following air raid alarms
or during air raids. Reason: Such
action if "taken simultaneously
in many homes will seriously re
duce water pressure in the
mains and limit the volume of
water. This would result in a
dangerous lack of water for fire
fighting purposes.
4. Leave valves alone. Rea
son: Trained men will shut off
all necessary valves:
5. Remember that the water
department knows the service is
off in your area. Your telephone
report is not necessary. Reason:
Three young men wound up an
early morning ride Sunday when
their car overturned about 7
o'clock in the yard of Mrs. Ruth
Ray at 2050 Melrose street,' ac
cording to city police. Only
damage reported was to the car
which was hauled away by a
wrecker and to lawn and shrub
bery. The boys were uninjured.
The report said that William,
Meeker, Ken Puckett and Arlis
Reeder had driven to the top
of the hill back of Hot Springs.
On starting down Melrose street
their brakes failed to hold and
the car gathered speed until it
went up and over a six foot bank
landing on its side on the lawn.

6 Pisco ntlmie immediately

service goes off. Follow the di

ment. Reason: Body wastes will

small volume of water stored in
the home is insufficient to con
tinne flushing.
7. Protect your health by boll
ing tlie drinking and cooking
water if the health department
so advises. Reason: Disruption
of water main by bombing may
suck sewage from sewers or
house plumbing into the water
main. It is advisable to boil all
drinking water for five minutes
during tlie first 24 hours after
water service is restored.
8, Accent chlorine tastes In
your drinking water without
complaining. It is a sign of safe
ty. Reason: O n account o f a
water main break, or for some
other good reason, the health
and water departments may in
crease chlorine disinfection rates
temporarily for your safety.
9. Do not drink water obtain
ed from other sources than your
tap or drinking water carts op
erated by the authorities. Rea
son: It is dangerous to use water
of unknown quality from wells
and springs, when the public
water supply fails.
10. Do not believe or repeat
rumors concerning water. The
health authorities know the
water supply facts and will ad
vise you. Reason: The origin of
such rumors may be subversive.
You can rely on your own health
and water departments. ,

garage, which was commenced
some time ago but never finish
