TABLE ROCK URGES SPEEDING UP WORK ON C. POINT ROAD

Table Rock, Feb. 7.— The first meeting of the Table Rock Improvement association since August, 1916, was held at the school house last Friday night. A fair attendance was present and much enthusiasm shown. A committee consisting of E. W. Carlton, D. R. Wood and R. E. Nealos were appointed to confer with our adjoining districts and the county court relative to the spending of the money voted last June for the improvement of the Central Point-Sams Valley road.

MONEY SPENT ON LOCAL HIGHWAYS IS FORUM TOPIC

Very few citizens realize the amount of work which has been done on the roads of southern Oregon and the amount of money which the state highway commission has spent here, and very few people know what is being contemplated in road construction.

No man is better equipped to give this information than K. E. Hodgman, engineer for the state highway commission, and he will give facts covering the points mentioned at the forum of the Medford Chamber of Commerce which will be held next Wednesday noon at the Medford Hotel.

Lieut. Col. W. S. Wapes who will be in Medford on Wednesday for the inspection of the members of Company D, will be in attendance and a short address will be given by him.

LOCAL BRIEFS

While it was raining hard this forenoon the weather prediction for the next 24 hours beginning at 5 p.m. today came by telegraph from the San Francisco bureau forecasting fair weather. There was only a trace of rain Sunday.

A large number of Medford people are planning on attending the New York Chamber Music Society concert at Ashland, Wednesday, Feb. 9. Tickets may be obtained at the Andrews Studios, at Palmer’s Music Store or at E. C. Root’s.

It is a great surprise to many people to learn that as big a car as the Buck can be operated as cheaply as the light cars. When gas, oil, tires and repairs are all considered Jim Logan, the mining man who lives on Siskiyou Heights and Mr. Muirhead, manager of the Gold Hill Cement plant, have kept records of thousands of miles of driving their Buicks which show almost unbelievable gas mileage even at high speed. Portland is an easy trip on a tank of gasoline even with the small Buick tank. Ask them.
