men near a wrecked pickup truck
four miles north of Wolf Creek
brought law officers to the scene
where the capture was made of
two boys, ages 13 and 15, armed
with a flashlight and dragging a
sleeping bag.
Two reports had been made to

affair in which the vehicle had
gone over the bank and stopped
about 100 feet from the highway.
In each report, it was stated that
the subjects were armed. One said
thev had been involved in a holdup.
The second report, from a Grants
Pass man, police were told that
one of the men was dragging an
other down the hill and waving a
revolver. The weapon turned out
to be a flashlight. The body was a
sleeping bag.
The boys were found to be run

Hurricane Bertha
Heads For Coast
storm Bertha ballooned into a full-
fledged hurricane Friday and
aimed its deadly punch at the
west Louisiana-upper Texas coasts
along a 125-mile front.
The Weather Bureau said the
hurricane was traveling roughly
in the same path as its killer pre
decessor Audrey six weeks ago,
about 140 miles southeast of Lake
Charles, La.
The storm's highest winds were
estimated at 75 miles per hour
within about 30 miles of the cen
ter with gales flaring out 100
miles from the center.
Bertha was expected to contin
ue a slow trek between west and
northwest at 10 to 12 miles per
hour tor I lie next 12 hours.
A Weather Bureau advisory
warned that tides would reach
five to six feet between Galveston
and Sabine, Tex., located on the
Louisiana border. Tides of three
to five feet were expected along
the central Louisiana coast.
Tides in the area normally are
about one foot.
The area threatened by the hur
ricane includes the strip of Louis-

Permission Gets
Boost, Says Roelle
Eugene Roelle, engineer for Tele-
service Co., which is striving to
secure permission to set up a trans
lator television station in Rose
burg, says the likelihood of receiv
ing permission had received a boost
this week.
A controversial request for an
amendment to present commission
regulations was overruled by the
Federal Communications Commis
sion. The proposed amendment, if
adopted, would have made it impos
sible for a translator to be set up
in a community which has a regu
larly operating television station
Those in favor of adoption of
the amendment contended that es
tablishment of such translators
made operation of established sta

Annexation Would
Up Population
By 1,200 People
The number of people in the area
proposed for annexation in East
Roseburg has been estimated at
City Manager George Farrell
said that "we could assume 1,200
people" from estimates made by
Oregon Water Corp.1 and California
Oregon Power Co.
The power company told the city
that there are 389 services, includ
ing commercial in the area. Of
that, 355 are "assumed" to be resi
dential hook-ins. The company uses
a figure of 3.8 persons per family
in estimating population. That re
sults in a Copco estimate of 1,349
The water company, with 300 do
mestic services, uses an average
of 3.6 persons per family, coming
up with 1,080 people. The city used
3.7, figuring 1,110 based on the wa
ter company services.
The estimate of 1.200 was a com-
promise between the water and
power companies estimates.
Voters in the area will decide
Aug. 22 whether to come into the
city. If the annexation proposal is
accepted, the city will vote on the
matter probably in September.
If the annexation is approved, it
would boost the population of the
city to around 14,200.
