This unique honor goes to the Union Oil company of California in reciproca tion of its Be Careful campaign. Announcement to this effect was made this week by the Oregon Hu mane Society which made the award. In a telegram to W. L. Stewart, president of the Union Oil company of California, Mrs. F. W. Swanton. of the Oregon Humane Society, stated: “I take great pleasure in informing you that your fine post ers on safety first when driving have been noticed and commented upon favorably all over the coun try. You have won the great honor of receiving the gold bronze Oregon Humane Society Abraham Lincoln humanitarian award for co-opera tion.” The Union’s safety campaign was inaugurated some months ago when investigation showed that the automobile accident situation was becoming acute. The Union offi cials went on the premise that automobile drivers were not, as a general rule, deliberately careless, but rather were victims of the urge for greater speed, which is inher ent in so many motorists. It was felt that if some means could be evolved which would bring home to the careless motorist the folly of his actions, a halt would be called to the growing total of automobile accidents. The present campaign which provided for the utilization of 1,500 posters on the Pacific Coast typifying motoring sit uations in which careful driving is necessary and which carry a direct and positive appeal to observe safe driving practices was therefore in augurated.

Bennett of the Arizona Elec tric company, is showing how clothes are washed by water action only, in the latest One Minute Washer. Water is swept through and through the soiled clothes by centrifugal force and dirt is thoroughly removed from the meshes of’the fabrics, without even touching the metal tub. This new Water Action has many advantages —principle of which is the fact that clothes are uninjured no mat ter how long they are left in the Washer. Another feature of keen interest is the washing of a single handkerchief or stocking by sim ply throwing it into the tub with a little soap and water —making it possible to use the One Minute daily if desired, to wash out those few things always done by hand. Home Demonstrations are being arranged by Mr. Bennett and no obligation is attached to arranging to use this One Minute Washer to do your washing for a week. Big Publicity Is Given Our Pine Forests In A Leading Lumber Paper Fifty-five pages of the American Lumberman, lending lumber indus try weekly, published in Chicoga, is "devoted'to the Cady Lumber cor poration of Flagstaff and McNary, in the issue of April 10.
