  • Tomorrow is May Day and Clean-Up day, and everybody will be up early polishing up the backyard and collecting rubbish. When the sun goes down tomorrow night Medford is expected to be nearest to a spotless town in the state.
    City Engineer Arnspiger, who has charge of the Clean-Up day for the city, has divided the city into five sections, with five teams to haul away the refuse. He urges that all citizens have the rubbish collected and piled to be hauled away by 8 o'clock, so that unnecessary trips will not be necessary to each district.
    In many homes the preliminary work has been completed and are ready for the coming of the wagon.
    It has been called to the attention of the city officials that there are several spots in the business district alleys that need a thorough going over.
    Flies have begun to gather in the last few days, due to the warm sunshine, and the swat-the-fligh campaign will be on in earnest soon.

    A conference of the business, professional and all representative men of Medford is called for tonight at 8 o'clock at St. Mark's Hall. C.E. Gates will preside as chairman. Dr. Emmens will discuss the extent and results of sexual vice. C.R. Bowman will describe present conditions among boys and girls. Dr. W.T. Williamson of Portland will speak on "The Four Sex Lies, Causes and Remedies." B.F. Mulkey will speak on "What Can We Do for Medford."
    The Oregon Social Hygiene Society has for its mission the replacing of misinformation and misconception with correct, clean knowledge of the facts of life, through the parents thus aiding in stamping out sex diseases and from the multitude of evils resulting therefrom.
    The work was made statewide through an appropriation by the last legislature and Medford is to do its share of this construction work through a local committee of prominent men.
    This meeting is worth the support of every citizen. The topics are of vital interest to every parent. The campaign is a statewide campaign and our community must do its share of this great work.
    The sex problem touches every life sooner or later. Every child of our city must meet it. A sane, careful, helpful discussion of this vital matter should appeal to every parent.
