The directors of the Medford Chamber of Commerce went on record last evening as favoring the publication of a real Medford booklet similar in character to those booklets published prior to 1911 by the old commercial club.

The cost of this booklet and the extent of a publicity campaign for its distribution will depend upon the financial support which the large land owners and business interests of Medford will back the proposition.

The budget committee of the chamber of commerce was instructed to recommend to the directors the amount of money which should be taken out of the funds of the organization toward the cost of this booklet and advertising campaign.

The directors in comparing notes last evening as to the criticism which has been directed against the chamber of commerce during the past years found no complaint of any consequence that members had rightfully misjudged the efforts of the organization other than their failure to provide an elaborate booklet.

The one object which the board had last year was to keep their expenditures within the income, which was accomplished and had all of the members paid their pledges of dues and budget subscriptions there would have been a cash balance of $2,500 instead of $91.85 on hand at the end of the fiscal year, March 31st, 1922.

With the 1900-1911 Medford spirit firmly established in the members of the present board, there is every reason to believe that with support in the same spirit by the citizens of the Rogue River valley, that big things can be accomplished this year.


J. W. Berrian, superintendent of the Butte Falls fish hatchery, is having wonderful success this year in taking fish eggs and has appealed to the game commission to either allow him to build more ponds or to take part of the eggs to other hatcheries.

He has already taken two million steelhead eggs from Little Butte and the Antelope and the run continues. Mr. Berrian says it is the largest run in years.

From Squaw Lake he has taken 300,000 cutthroat eggs.
