Feb. 19, 1921 Continued


The physicians report that the drive for funds for the X-ray laboratory equipment at the Sacred Heart hospital is meeting with only medium success. This may be due to the fact that doctors are notoriously poor collectors, even of their own bills.

Many people have come through with liberal contributions without any soliciting whatever, and the doctors say they hope that all persons will see the urgent need of increasing the equipment and of retaining here Dr. Lincoln Kallen, the clinical expert.

John S. Orth of the Medford National bank is treasurer of the drive and the physicians would appreciate it if all citizens would send in their contributions without being asked to. They also call attention to the fact that every cent of the desired $4,000 will be expended for the laboratory equipment.


Salem, Ore., Feb. 19. — A bill requiring women as well as men applying for marriage licenses to be examined as to mental and physical fitness has been enacted by the Oregon legislature. Unfavorable action had been taken on the measure earlier in the session. A law requiring examination of men has been in force in this state.

A bill establishing standard grading and packing rules for apples and pears also was finally passed.


Prof. Arthur L. Peck, head of the landscaping department of the O. A. C., met with the county fair association directors and a number of others directly interested in the county fair project, at the Chamber of Commerce this afternoon outlining his plans for the general makeup of the buildings and plan of the grounds and its various features. The professor visited and studied the site of the new fair grounds Friday afternoon. He will return to Corvallis tonight but is expected to spend much time here when construction work is stated on the big project.


The record crowd of the season so far will attend the basketball game between Medford and Roseburg high teams tonight at the Natatorium, including quite a number of Roseburg rooters already here and others who will arrive by auto this afternoon.


For the first time in weeks the public market was today a little shy on meats, especially of beef. But it was long on eggs, which are still being sold there at 25 cents a dozen. A number of groceries ran out of eggs because of the big demand for them today and replenished their supply at the market.
