UNION MEAT BRANCH TO BE DISCONTINUED
It was learned Monday that July 1 the Medford branch of the Union Meat company will be discontinued, and thereafter all orders taken in this territory will be filled from the main plant of the company at North Portland.
A. J. Bosworth was recently transferred from the Portland plant to manage the Medford branch. E. J. Nedd, who is promoted and given charge of the Union Meat company business at San Francisco, and O. R. Fouts will continue as representatives of the company in Medford and adjacent territory.
Paul Kohler, who has been connected with the local branch for several years, is transferred to the main plant at North Portland, and will go there about July 1. Former manger Nedd at about the same time will assume charge of his new duties in San Francisco.
APPEAL MADE TO FREIGHT SHIPPERS FOR CO-OPERATION
The following appeal is being sent to all shippers and receivers of freight by the San Francisco committee of the car service commission at Washington:
"With our country at war, the railroads are being called upon to handle unprecedented quantities of all kinds of materials and supplies, and have pledged to the government and the people their united efforts to produce minimum disturbance to commercial interests. We earnestly appeal to all shippers and receivers of freight to assist in the conservation of freight cars."
STATE HIGHWAY ENGINEER INSPECTS ROADS OF STATE
Herbert Nunn, state highway engineer, accompanied by R. C. Johnson, good roads editor of the Portland Journal, arrived in Medford Sunday for a short visit with John A. Westerlund, en route back to Portland from an 1,100-mile automobile trip through central and eastern Oregon.
Mr. Nunn, who made the trip as an observation one to study the condition of the roads and their needs, was enthusiastic over what he saw. They left Portland a week ago last Saturday and came to Medford Sunday from Klamath Falls, leaving in the evening for Roseburg and expect to complete the 1,500-mile trip by reaching Portland Tuesday afternoon.
