Fatal To Pilot
10 UP) Crash of an airplane
into Odell Lake claimed the lile
of a San Francisco pilot yester
day. Three federal foresters es
caped a similar fate. -
Klamath county Sheriff Jack

attempting a turn. The plane hit

O. & C. Land Management
Requires Budget Boost,
Daniel Goldy Points Out
Management of O. and C. lands will be critically handicapped
unless appropriations tentatively scheduled In the federal budget
are materially increased, the Roseburg district advisory board was
told Monday.
Pointing out that the Bureau
of Land Management has a
budget of $521,500 for the cur
rent fiscal year and that $2,628,
000 was estimated as needed for
efficient administration during
the ensuing year, the budget ap
proved by the House Appropria
tions Committee is only $500,000
for the coming fiscal year, Daniel
L. Goldv, Portland, regional ad
ministrator, told the advisory
board at it organizational meet
ing. The local board elected County
Judge D. N. Busenbark as per
manent chairman and Harold
Woollev. Drain, vice-chairman.
Goldy emphasized that fire pro
tection contracts will Jump from
$171,835 to $267,350. and that sal
ary increases will amount to
around $21,500. bringing in
creased costs up to nearly $300,
000 more than for the current
vear. Thus, if cuts made in the
budget are permitted to stand,
there will lie virtually no funds
for more than a skeleton organi
zation. The Bureau of Land Manage
ment, Goldv said, had sought
$900,000 for access roads, $410,000
for reforestation and timber
stand improvement, and $200,000
Several hundred unionists
asked in a petition that the talks
be broadened to deal with an al
leged speed-up in the axle build
ing of the Ford's big Rouge
Plant. Thus far the dispute has
been confined to the Ford as
sembly line in the Rouge plant's
B building.
In keeping with other events
of this first major labor battle
in a year in the auto industry,
the agreement to negotiate came
yesterday with dramatic sudden
ness. Young President Henry Ford
II, acting swiftly, accepted a pro
posal for talks from President
Walter Reuther of the union.
The two acted as strike-caused
layoffs In Ford and supplier
fi rms. aliady were. -mounting-!-
into the thousands;
A full 40.000 more Ford work
ers face idleness within a week
if the strike is not settled. Ford
has warned it may have to shut
down all its 49 plants.
In agreeing to negotiations
Ford said his company assumed
that the talks would be "con
tinued until this strike can be
brought to a close."
Ford Spurns Two Proposals
He declined two accompanying
proposal's from Reuther, how
ever. Ford said he would neither ap
pear personally at the negotia
tions nor would he engage in a
public debate with Reuther if
the dispute wasn't settled by
The union chief. In a public
statement later, deplored Ford's
answer on those two counts, but
he carried the matter no further.
As Ford negotiations gave rise
to hopes for peace on that dis
pute, there was other trouble in
the Industry.
Chrysler announced an indefi
nite layoff of 22.000 workers be
cause of a shortage of windows
stemming from a reported slow
down in a supplier plant.
Chrysler shut down final as
semblies at its Dodge, DeSoto,
and Chrysler main plants and
passenger car and body making
at its Chrysler Kercheval Ave.
for forest Inventory. These items,
he pointed out were in the form
of "capital Investment."
He told the board that $60,000
is required annually to service
timber sale contracts already ex
isting, covering the cost of cruis
ing, Inspecting, establishing cut
ting allotments, and for plan
ning, appraisal, advertising, exe
cution of contracts and bonds,
and supervision of cutting and
slash disposal. The bureau, he
said, estimated $150,000 would be
needed during the coming year
but that only $76,650 had been
provided in the tentative budget
for the coming fiscal year.
Ten-year programs of refor
estation and forest inventory
were recommended by the re-
f;ional board, he said, but no al
owance Is made for these ac
tivities in the budget. Onlv Hbout
100.000 acres out of 2,500,000
aeies have been intensively in
ventoried to dale, Goldy said.
The Bureau of Land Manage
ment is inadequately staffed for
the work required in administra
tion, he told the board, and with
more than half of next year!

Slated Thursday
Asserting that "if the Presi
dent wants lo purge me from
the Senate I'll be around when
the purging starts," Byrd said
he intends to keep fighting for
the slash in spending he doesn't
think the president wants.
Gilbert Harrison, national com
mander of the American Vet
erans Committee, quoted the
President after a White House
conference yesterday.
Byrd said further:
"I'm going to continue to make
some small . . . plans that the
President won't like at all.
"And I've got an interest in a
big plan, too. I'm going to see to
it, if I can, that the Senate
doesn't confirm the nomination
of Mon Wallgren to head the Na
tional Security Resources Board.
He's definitely not big enough for
that job."
Byrd furnished the necessary
Democratic vote when Repub'
cans on the Senate Armed Serv
ices Committee bottled up the
Wallgren appointment weeks
Since that time, the Virginian
has not been on good political
terms with the President, who
has said repeatedly that he

Peace Not Wanted With
Hammer And Sickle On It,
OSC Prexy Tells Critic
PORTLAND, May 10. ,P Oregon Slate College President A.
L. Strand challenged comments by Henry Wallace here last night
when the Progressive Party leader said two O. S. C. faculty dismis
sals were unfair.
Dr. Strand, In his words with the former vice president, answered
one statement with: "I want peace just as much as you do, but I
do not want peace with a hammer and sickle on It."
The exchange followed Wat
lace's speech at a "peace forum"
in the public auditorium. Wal
lace had said the dismissals of
Dr. Ralph Spitzer and L. R, La

criminatory. He noted they were
Progressive Party supporters. He
also deplored what he said was
the change in Dr. htrand re
calling that he was one of two
college presidents to introduce
the presidential candidate during
last year's speaking tour.
As the audience left the hall,
Dr. Strand approached the plat
form, lie reprimanded Wallace
and denied the dismissals were
unfair. The college president also
told Wallace "I believed in you
strongly for some time, but now
I am glad I came to this meeting.
