The Ad men from various cities of the Northwest who arrive in Medford tomorrow on their way south to attend their convention at Sacramento, Calif., will be taken on a drive through the orchard districts of the Rogue River Valley and to Ashland where they will board their train and continue their trip to the south. More than forty automobiles are pledged to make the trip and more are wanted. They must be at the depot by 2 o'clock.

The ad men comprise all of the live advertising men of the Northwest. By giving them a ride through the valley, as is planned, much desirable publicity will be gained.

Every owner of an automobile who can possibly make the trip is urged to render their services to Secretary Ware of the Commercial Club.

The excursion is due at 2 o'clock and as many club members and citizens as possible are requested to be on hand to give a roaring welcome to the visitors.

Two hours will be taken for the drive to Ashland. The route will be east up Queen Anne Avenue to the Linley residence on Siskiyou Heights thence to and through the Bear Creek and Burrell Orchards, thence through the orchard belt to Talent, where 10 autos from Ashland meet the ad men to welcome them to the Granite City.

The party is scheduled to arrive at Ashland at four o'clock.
