Statesman, SoTem, Ore., MoiySept. 26, '60 '(Sec. l)-3 ! Highway Sign Conversion to Inter state Ma New "Interstate 5" highway slffns are attracting plenty of at tention on Salem Bypass and a few other spots on U.S Highway 99 through Ore gon. But it'll be long, long time before the red, white and blue Interstate 5 marking fully replaces the old faithful 99. 3t Bkorim M-N The same is true of the gradual conversion of east-west U.S. High way 30 in Oregon to "Interstate In fact, Oregon State Highway Department officials, like chief traffic engineer F. B. CrandalL won't even guess when if ever the Highway 99 and Highway 30 signs will come down, The new highway numbers 5 and 80-N in Oregon are part of an entirely new marking system designed nationally to distinguish the vast interstate highway sys tem being built to modern four- lane divided highway . standards with joint federal-state financing. Through Oregon Route 5 follows Highway 99, with right-of-way changes only where made by the State Highway Department to achieve the new standard. Similarly Route 80-N will follow Highway 30. tO Follows 30, 40 On a ' transcontinental basis Route 80 was devised by federal road planners to follow mainly Highways 30 or 40 from the East Coast to San Francisco via Salt Lake City. When a Route 82 number was assigned to the interstate system link from Salt Lake City to the Oregon Coast, Nort hwest leaders pro tested it and f iriea 10 gee the western end of Route 80 for Oregon. The result was a compromise the Route 80-N designation. Changes to the new standard are gradual and are being completed in various short sections throughout the country as priority needs and funds dictate. mo) So Oregon highway policy has been developed to use the new numbering only, upon fully modernized highway sections when the work is completed, and then to use both the ( new and the -eld highway umbers, usually both on the same standard. The shield design for Interstate Highway markers was developed by American Association of State Highway Officials. Sizes for these signs, prescribed by Bureau of Public Roads, run considerably larger than older highway marking signs.: That's because" the new ones are designed for use on fast-travel freeways. Sign sizes go up to a mammoth 48-inch sign, reserved for use at intersections of two interstate highways, and a 36-inch size for use along the main highways where motorists have been ac customed to 24-inch sifins. Signs are bigger and more are needed to keep tp.with highway modernizatinn. in! result of this is that the state ' now ; generally contracts for the signs rather than having them made and put up by nigoway department employes. In years to come the completed new. Interstate Highways 5 and 80-N will add up to about 720 miles. Of this total, about 161 miles is now completed or under contract. , Willamette University Sororities Pledge 95 A total of 95 girls were pledged to the five Willamette University sororities Sunday evening at the close of the annual fall rush week, The pledges. are as follows:.

L. Phipps. , However, he added, that at the present time the hazardous areas of the state are under controlled entry and all hunters should check with the wardens and rangers to e determine whether conditions are such that the per mits will be issued. Where entry permits are issued the hunter must carry tools suitable for fighting forest fires if he plans to camp at some spot other than a posted and desig nated camp ground, the forester added. "At the present time hazardous conditions exist in the southern and eastern part of the state," the forester said. "There has been little rain for the past two or three months and the hunter should-exercise extreme care in the use of fire. ' "Warming fires are not per mitted during the closed season and the season will not end until general statewide rains occur and a proclamation issued by the governor." In the northwestern part of the state there has been some rain and at present the hazard is low. Phipps added that with high tem peratures and east winds fire conditions could get extremely hazardous in a very short time. He pointed out that some -of Oregon's most disastrous fires have occurred in late fall.
