director ol the Douglas County Housing authority, said only two
families, are left, and they have signified their intention of moving

During the past six years, Sco
field said, the camp has housed
529 families, of which a great
many have purchased or built
homes in this community and
have become permanent citizens.
With deterioration a id old age
overtaking the trailers, many
have reached the stage where
they are now unsatisfactory for
further use for a public trailer
project, said Scofield.
Information on the sale of these
trailers Is expected at any time
by the Dougjas County Housing
authority, explained Scofield. In
Roseburg today was a Mr. Olson,
representing" the J.S. Soil Con
servation service at Portland,
who was inspecting the trailers
with the idea of re-using some of
them on a project in Wyoming.
With the closing of the trailer
camp, the housing authority will
clear the site for future industrial
use by the Youngs Bay Lumber
company, owners of the land.
The project being ho longer

Two Children Perish In
Home-Destroying Fire
MOUNTAIN View, Calif.,
Nov. 10 CP) Two of ten chil
dren in a rural family burned to
death early today in a fire' of
unreported origin which destroy
ed their home nearby.
The mother, Mrs. Ynez An
dona, and two of the other chil
dren were burned severely. The
six others escaped the flaming
structure. Their father was away
at the time.
Burned to death were Joe, two,
and John Andona, five. -
Developing the theme, AH the
begs in one asket," the Rev. Wal
ter A. MacArthur, pastor of the
First Methodist church, addressed
a rally of workers at the Rose
burg Lumb er company Wednes
day. He suggested that workers con
tribute to the C ommunlty Chest
through the payroll deduction
plan, spreading "their payments
over a number of weeks. He
pointed out that If separate drives
were held they might give $5 to
each agency. So a suitable dona
tion would be a combination of
these separate gifts, he said.
Community Chest leaders in
Roseburg pointed out today that
the current drive represents a
saving of time and energy. Six
member agencies of the Commu
nity Chest would normally con
duct six separate drives, were it
not for the chest organization.
Member agencies Include the
Boy Scouts, Camp Fire Girls, Girl
Scouts, Salvation Army and the
Young Men's Christian associa
tion. The Oregon Chest, also a
member of the Roseburg Commu
nity Chest, Includes 15 charitable
and child-care agencies serving
the entire state.

of pre election clashes In which
hundreds reportedly have died.

Corvallis High
Reinstated But
Games Forfeited
PORTLAND, Nov. 10. UP)
corvallis nign scnool was rein
stated by the Oregon School Ac
tivities association today but all
football games played thus far
were declared forfeited.
The reinstatement and the pen
alty were reported by Tom Pig
ott, secretary of the association.
Pigott said Corvallis was free
to play its scheduled game with
Albany tomorrow.
It was for painting "Beat Al
bany" signs on the Albany field
that the suspension was ordered.
Corvallis had been one of the
contenders for the district 4 foot
ball title.
Pigott said the .forfeiture of
all games won thus far ruled
Corvallis out of contention now.
The record, showing all games
to date lost; had too many de
feats for a title-aspiring team,
he said.
The suspension was ordered
Tuesday afternoon. The swift re
instatement, Pigott said, reflect
ed the board of control's feeling
that Corvallis school officials had
acted promptly and properly In
reporting the painting incident bv
students as soon as they learned
of it. Corvallis also made resti
tution, he said, by paying the cost
of removing the signs.

Undesirable CVA Phases Hit By Speakers
Of Pacific Northwest Development Assn.
Before a representative audl-i

at the Hotel Umpqua last night,
Stanley K. cnurcn ana enaries
M. Stanford of the Pacific North
west Development association in
Portland gave a searching an
alysis of the proposed Columbia
Valley administration bill as now
embodied In Senate Bill 1645.
Speaking in a critical vein of
this new concept of resource de
velopment now proposed for the
Columbia valley area, the visitors
pointed out many of the dangers
to be expected if control of the
area is turned over to three men
as proposed in the measure.
Specifically noted was the fact
that the region covered by the
bill includes all of southwestern
Oregon and the streams not flow
ing Into the Columbia or Willam
ette. It was specifically mentioned
that such streams as the Rogue,
Coos, Siuslaw, and Umpqua would

Five members of the court
ruled unanimously yesterday that
pinball machines are gambling

law. The decision was handed
down in overruling a Spokane
county superior court order pro
hibiting the city from enforcing
an ordinance banning the ma

on the state-wide effect of the
ruling pending a close study of
the decision. Asst. Atty. Gen. John

crackdown on the machines would
rest with county prosecutors.
One high state official, who
asked that he remain anonymous,

last night.
In a speech at a Young Repub

lumbia Valley administration
would give too much power to too
few people. It was his first state
ment on the CVA issue.
He said local groups should try
to bring into harmony conflicting
interests in basin development
rather than to turn the problem
over to what he called a "super
Norblad said the CVA proposal
was an admission or tne adminis
tration's "guilt in failing to folovv
the sane and economical meth
ods of private enterprise in the
Columbia Valley developments."
Senator Wayne Morse told an au
dience last night he would have
plenty to say , about CVA when
he campaigns for reelection.
"I expressed my views on
pending CVA legislation In my
Oct. 14 speech. In my campaign
I will enlarge on those views, but
I have not yet begun my cam

Earlier, other speakers before
the b..nquet session of the 37th
