Bankers of Jackson County met at the Hotel Medford this noon, to discuss plans and arrange details for the giving of lectures in the schools this year, explaining the intricacies and mysteries of banking, and the meaning of all terms used in the business. This is in accordance with a resolution adopted by the state banker’s association at their last meeting, and the campaign of education will continue throughout the school year. An officer from each bank will be assigned to make a speech a month to the pupils of his local school. An invitation was extended to all the bankers in the county to attend, but all did not appear. Vernon Vawter of the Jackson County Bank acted as chairman of the meeting.


The state game commission at its meeting in Portland this week cut off fifteen days of the open season on mountain or plumed and California quail in Jackson and Josephine counties, the former season of October 1 to 31 being changed to October 15 to 31.

A full legal notice of the change in the quail season is published elsewhere in this paper.

The weather continues to be quite chilly and the temperature was down to freezing and below in some parts of the city and valley this morning, although the official temperature in Medford was 32 1/2.


The driver of the Reo Speed Wagon No. 11 operated by Pruitt & Myers Auto Co. in the service of the Crater Lake National Park Co., received a rather strong threat of being taken to court this morning when he assured State Traffic Officer McMahon that he had not intentionally obliterated the number on his state license plate. The traffic officer made a claim that the number had been purposely covered with grease and dust. This was denied as the Crater Lake speed wagons are unmistakable, both of them being independently numbered by the company and both having details of construction which distinguish them.
