News commentator Fulton
Lewis Jr., who was present at a
news conference, said he got the
tip from the senator and went
un to Interview Jordan on Oct.
26. Jordan told his story In a
Lewis broadcast Friday menu
At one point, Jordan told re-tiorters:
"Everyone seer.-.r surprised
about Hopkins. (He testified that
the late Harry Hopkins, aide of
President Roosevelt, had given
orders to expedite important snip
ments to Russia.)
'The Russians contacted Hop
kins all the time. If you wanted
10 pilots, all you had to do was
tell the Russians and they would
get In touch with Hopkins and
he would get them."
Jordan said that when he
opened the Russian suitcases he

screamed 'diplomatique! diploma

''A Russian colonel came up
and said I would be removed
from my Job for what hap
pened." Jordan said he was never tak
en from his position, and that
he didn't believe that the Rus
sians really wanted him removed.
"I don't think they complained
too much," he said, "because they
were afraid there would be an
Investigation and this little rat
hole would be stopped,"
Jordan's charges were called
"outrageous" by Mrs, Franklin
D. Roosevelt, widow of the pre
sident. "I cannot Imagine Mr. Hop
kins trying to hurt his country
when he literally killed himself
for It," she said when asked for
comment,' "I have never met or
' heard of Mr. Jordan, but If you
look far enough you will find
someone who will find fault with
I can believe, however, that
. Mr. Hopkins exchanged certain
Information with Russia, as they
were doing with us, but certainly
not without full knowledge of our
'military leaders. Mr. nopKins
cannot fight back. He Is dead."
At Los Angeles, David Hopkins
declared that a story that his
father, the late Harry Hopkins,
sent atom bomb material to Rus
' sia Is "completely Incredible."
"In wartime conversations with
' me when I was home on leave
from the navy, my father showed
he was well aware of the threat
of future world communism,"
; Hopkins told newsmen. "He was
very outspoken against It.

the city and our rural area would
be affected," he said.
He said sewers and other sani
tary facilities would be more
readily available to West Rose
burg should the annexation meas
ure be carried. However, he re
minded the group that the cost
of Installation would be borne by
the DroDerty owners of the im
proved area, based on property
frontage. Thus, the city would
not be indented oy sanitary in
stallations, he said.
Other advantages listed bv the
speaker Included the possible In
fluence annexation may have on
Industries which study population
figures before deciding where to
locate new factories. A further
advantage, an Increase In total
tax revenue collected by the city,
was cited by McGaughey who
said $500,000 in assessed valua
tion would be added to Roseburg.
Assn. Work Reviewed
McGauenev accompanied his
remarks with an account of what
the West Roseburg Civic Im
provement association has been
attempting since it was formed
He said the members of the
association are doing the work
"on our time and at our own
expense" In an effort to have as
much of the spade work done as
possible to cooperate with the
city should annexation be approv
ed. Committees have been ap
pointed to study such problems
as sewers and sanitation, streets
and street lighting and property
President McGaughey introduc
ed other officers of the associa
tion, all elected at an open meet
ing. They Include Paul Davis,
vice-president; and William Boll
man, secretary-treasurer. Mem
bers of the board Include Walter
Mallory, W. H. Carter, R. O.
Dunsdon, O. J. Feldkamp, P. M.
Murphy and D. R. Dimmlck.
Samall Votes Feared
Mayor Albert G. Flegel, called
unon for remarks on the coming
annexation vote, said he was "se
riously concerned" about getting
voters to turn out to the polls
'I think the people of Rose
burg are too complacent about
this measure passing," he said.
He expressed a fear that because
of voters' antipathy and the pos
sibility of bad weather the polls
may be nearly deserted on the
special election date.
Proof that such a situation Is
possible was offered by City
Manager M. W. Slankard In cit
ing figures from old city records.
In 1909, Slankard said, 1,009 votes
were cast In the days when the
city's population was onlv scarce
