Be that as it may, the flu mask is much ev dence today in Pendleton, and thoita wearing1 the maka are making- the best of the situation and doing it good natu redly as a rule. The barbers are Kenerally ob serving the mask rule, and those not doing so wHi it is announc ed be reported to the city at torney, as wiil aIo thone work in other occupations required to wear masks, who fail to meet the requirements. Some of the restaurants have their wait-y ers equipped with the flu' de stroyers whtJe others have not. us yet done so.
