Post office officials have received no
tice that hereafter no exception will be
made to the rule that parcels when
presented to the postoffice for shipment
overseas must be accompanied by a
written request from the soldier, approv
ed by a major or higher commanding
officer. Persons connected with the Bed
Cross or Y. M. C. A. or other organiza
tions iu France must make a request for
articles in a similar manner, the approv
al of an executive officer of the organ
ization being necessary in each case.
The original order provided thak a
regimental or higher officer should ap
prove a request for the shipment of
an article to France. This has been mod
ified so that a major or a higher offi
cer may grant the, request. The appro
val of a company commander is not suf
ficient. Would Quarantine
All Tubercular Cattle
At tho next meeting of the state
livestock sanitary board, Dr. W. H.
Lytle, state veterinarian, will urge the
board ta pass a resolution requesting
the secretary of agriculture to place a
quarantine on interstate shipments of
all tubercular infected cattle.
This action will be taken at the re
quest of. the livestock sanitary offi
cials of the states of Tennessee, South
Carolina, Georgia, Alabama, Florida
and Arkansas, who recently held a meet
ing at Atlttntc. Ga., and passed such a
resolution. They want a quarantine
strictly enforced for the protection of
those states which are now practically
free of tuberculosis among their cat
tle. "All native cattle of Oregon are
free from this disease," says Dr. Ly
tlo, in his reffly to the state veterinar
ian of Georgia, "but some few of the
cattle tffat have come in contact with
imported cattle have some little tu
berculosis, although we have tho dis
ease now well under control and a ma
jority of the herds aro free from it.
We have been working for some 10
years in tuberculosis eradication work
here in Oregon.
"As soon as our state livestock san
itary board meets I will brine vo-ur
letter before; them bud will encourage:
the board to issue a similar reeo.ution
to tho one that you have passed and
embody the eamo request in it relative
to tho shipment of possibly tubercular
cattle interstate, and the control of the
sale of tuberculin."

One-Fifth of Salem's Allot
ment Secured In First Two
Days of Campaign
The second day's campaign of the
War Savings Stamps campaign will
bring the subscriptions up to about
50,000, about one-fifth of the quota
assigned to Salem, according to the
announcement of Hal D. Patton, gen
eral in chcrge.
While this amount is not quite as
large as expected for tha two days
workers are not discouraged to any ex
tent and all express their determination
to stay with the campaign until the
required amount, $250,000 is sub
The slowness in securing subscrip
tions is duo largely, Mr. Patton says,
to the fact that many people aro not at
home at this season of the year and
then again hundreds are out picking
Some rer.ort the old old story of the
woman who had but a little subscrib
ing liberally, while in other families,
even in some where a son is in the
war, theri was an inclination to feel
that their duty was done by subscrib
ing for two stamps. In some cases,
where the family is driving around in
an automobile, the total subscriptions
for the family amounted to $10.
In tha offiee of the State Accident
Commission, the employes sub-scribed
$1,720 an average of $3o.OO each.
There are 49 workers in the offiee and
not one failed to respond to the invita
tion to subscribe.
- Hereafter, during the week 's cam
paign, ths workers will report direct to
their captains and the captains will
hold a daily conference and report to
Hal D. Putton and no more noon day
luncheons will be given at the First
Methodist church.
Throughout the county, the campaign
will close Friday evening. In the rural
districts, a mass meeting has been
called for that evening, when it is ex
pected that every person in the district
will turn in their subscription cards in
order that the district conrmittce may
know whether the quota has been sub
scribed. At tho mass meetings Friday even
ing, June 28, there will be organized in
each district, a permanent war fund
committee, which will nave cnarge or
future Liberty loan and other cam
paigns. During the week each home in
every district will to visited by tne
workers. '
