(AP> The j prospect of running out of gas- i oline in Oregon apparently ac- complished this summer what the. James G. Elaine society has been working toward for years: reducing the number of i motorists coming into the i state. The state highway division said Friday that tourists counts at visitor information centres around the state show a decline of nearly 15 per cent this sum- mer compared with last sum- mer. Questions about the gasoline i situation were the major con- cern of tourists who stopped at the centres. But the Elaine Society, the mythical creation of the late Ore- j gon writer Stewart Hplbrook, I received some recognition. j Members of the Elaine socie- I ty seek to keep visitors out of Oregon by passing along infor- mation about the amount of rainfall and ether undesirable aspects of the state. Much of the information is disseminated toungue-in-eheek, i but many members of the society are absolutely serious. Ron Ahell, a Portland free- lanc-e writer, recently incorpor- I ated the society and is widely sought as a speaker on the sub- ject of preserving Oregon for Oregonians.
