The board of directors of the Chamber of Commerce met Friday evening and disposed of a mass of business which was up for consideration. After the regular routine of business, the finances of the organization were thoroly gone into and the statement of the secretary showing the amount of money spent and the amount of money available for future operation gave them an insight of the affairs of the institution to enable them to conduct the Chamber in a businesslike manner and keep the organization well within its income.

The county authorities have decided to purchase five thousand pamphlets advertising county resources and opportunities, for the sum of six hundred dollars. The Medford Chamber of Commerce was given the opportunity to purchase additional copies over the amount which the county will have, but as the directors have a Medford booklet under consideration, they did not see their way clear to make the investment.

The character of the booklet desired for Medford was decided upon and an investigation as to its cost is now being made.


The Medford committee to have charge of the arrangements for a Jackson County Community day at Lithia Park in Ashland consists of C. A. Meeker, chairman Volney Dixon and F. W. Hollis. This committee will confer with a like committee from the Ashland Commercial club and will conduct the affair.


The dedication of the Newell-Barber Field will be in the hands of a committee composed of P. M. Janney, chairman, George Codding and C. E. Gates. This committee is empowered to appoint as many sub-committees as necessary for the successful dedication of the field. The probable sub-committees will be that of parade, publicity and dedication ceremony.


One of the most important subjects now under consideration is in the hands of a committee of which Glenn O. Taylor is chairman and George Collins and Ralph Waldo Elden are the other members. This committee is charged with the investigation of proper traffic regulation laws for the city and as there are as many ideas of this regulation as there are automobiles in the city, their task will not be a small one.
