J. Clifford is here today en route to Mexico to investigate a reported find! of 34 mammies with characteristics; attributed to the "Blackbeards." ,Mr. Clifford, a resident of Med-I ford, will be r,e.mmbered as the ar- cheologist who was here last year at Round-Up time interviewing Indians on the Umatilla reservation with the object of obtaixting legendary lore! pertaining to this race of ancient: giants. Had Cross Bows A described by Mr. Clifford at that time, "these men were heavily blackbearded and had hair rather red- dish mad were large, possibly seven feet tall." Regarding how long ago they are believed to have lived on the North American continent, hc stated: "The only clue we have of a date of this migration is that they were armed with cross bows. There were some 65 men in this glup and were said to have stayed in the Klamth country for a e.ottple of years, then they went south." According to Paxson C. Hayes, Recent information is to t.':e effect that the 1933 Apple Grade Rule.: have been placed in the hands of the printer and printed copies will bc vMtable soon. The changes in the rules will reduce the color require- meats of "Extra Fancy" Jonathans from 65 per cent to 50 per cent. In the "Fancy" Grade 4 stings will be allowed instead of 2. The "C" grade of 1931 will be reestablished with 15 per cent color requirement for the red varieties and 10 per cen.t for the partial red varieties. Sprayburn, linb rub and russcting has been added to the list of c-mes of serious d v.mage. Under tolerances; which apply at time of packing a paragraph has been added to cover apples graded in conformity with the grades and marketed loose in boxes er in bulk.

He drove up behind a county truck that was standing in the middle of the road and asked that it be moved to one side s that he could safely drive past it. The man there stated that the driver was gone and the ttck could not be nmved un- til he returned. Mr. Cairn attempted to drive around the truck but got stuck and asked one of the county workers to assist him. The man stated that he couhl not help and Mr. Cairn said that the man dechlcd to help 0nly after $5.00 had been offered for' his services. The truck was then star.ted thoug, h it was supposed to be without a driver, and the worker procured chains and hooked up a large t(*am and pulled the traveler back onto the road, Mr. Cairn alse stated that the workman tohl h.im he could remain stated to a Herald man that he had [ yer, returned Thursday evening after stuck as far as ]:e was concerned an-' les.+ the five simoleons were produe- received an answer to his wire adc-lapemling a month iu the Sacred ing that Will Ro'ers attend the m,et-: Heart hospital following an accident ! ed. . i ing.
