he continued.
Reports Regular
He said his office in the Court
house receives daily reports of
fallout situations over the state
and in the last three days, "the
measurement has been practically
normal, with such a small degree
of variation it is not to be con
sidered an increase in any area."
He pointed out that Civil De

"any threat that constitutes a dan

by radio and television of the pro

Jitters Cited
Finally, Selby had some advice
'to protect our people from what

He warned that rumors should
not be repeated pertaining to dan

rumors should be checked with ra

"The release of any other type
of information from any source
whatever is not recognized as of
ficial and should be taken with a
degree of doubt until officially con
firmed." Selby said his office is ready to
answer any inquiry. He said, also
that if a dangerous situation aris

Dean Tandy from behind the steer
ing wheel of an automoble until
January of 1963.
Tandv. a Reedsport resident who
was arrested by Koseburg City
Police on a charge of driving on
a suspended icense, faied to ap
pear in municipal Court to answer
to the complaint, forfeiting his $150
bail bond.
The court clerk noted that Tandy
has a record of two previous li

ordered by a court on Jan. 13 of
this year to be effective until Jan.

ed another year to the previous
violators will ba dealt with ac
cordingly.' Youths reported involved in such
mischief will be picked up and
turned over to the Douglas County
Juvenile Department, he warned.
The chief pointed out that water
balloons have resulted in numer
ous serious accidents in other cit
ies. Severe injuries olten result.
The department will have 15 po
licemen working in cars and on
loot patrols to keep Halloween
night enthusiasm under control.
Truett suggested that trick or -trusters
should be able to complete
their rounds by 8:50 p.m. and re
turn to their own homes. He urged
boys and girls to bypass homes
where no lights are one.
"Many residents because of their
working hours retire early and na
turally do not want to be bothered
by door-ringers," he pointed out.
To keep Halloween night automo
bile traiiic at a minimum, parents
who use automobiles to transport
children on trick-or-treat excur
sions were urged to restrict their
travel to the neighborhood in which
they live.

School Grounds Slated
To Receive Attention
School yards and playground
areas are going to get some at
tention in the Roseburg school
Dr. Vern Anderson, a member
of the Roseburg School Board, told
the board he thinks the school
grounds at buildings throughout
the system are in sorry condition.
He received concurrence of other
board members when he com
plained that playground and land
scaping improvements are badly
needed to "spruce up" school ap
pearances. The administration was urged to
start outlining grounds improve
ments that are needed in the dis
trict and include these as projects
in the next budget.
In the meantime. Anderson said,
many of the schools, particularyly
the high school, need a good clean
ing tip.
School administrators assured
the board that clean-up operations
would be started immediately.

Escaped Jewel
Thief Captured
SEATTLE (APt - Jewel thief
Thomas R. Fasenmeyer, who
made a spectacular escape from
the county jail in Seattle Sunday
night, was captured Thursday at
Blaine, on the Canadian border.
Two Border Patrol inspectors on
a routine check found the 32 year
old son of a wealthy Kansas City
auto dealer hiding in brush in a
city park on the northeast out
skirts of the border town.
No Resistance
He offered no resistance and
denied he was the fugitive until
after fingerprints were taken.
Despite his exposure to wintry
wet weather, Fasenmeyer said the
only things that really bothered
him were his feet from his long
getaway walk.
He said he drove a stolen car
from Seattle to Alarysville, walked
on north to Mount Vernon, took a
bus to Bellingham and stole an
other car there, abandoning it
near Blaine.
He told officers he broke into a
cafe in Mount Vernon and stole
candy and some money and broke
into a private garage and took a
sleeping bag near Marysville.
Fasenmeyer, who pleaded guilty
to jewel thefts from prominent
Seattle residents, was one of eight
men who tried to escape last
Sunday. They climbed out a win
dow of the jail on the 10th floor
of the County-City Bldg., slid down
a rope made of sheets to a window
on a lower floor, and then went
down an elevator the rest of the
One of the eight was killed when
he fell nine stories. Five were
captured within a short time.

Dr. Keurr, North Bend physi
cian, said he only used a hypo
thetical explanation to explain the
law under which the Stale Wel
fare Commission works in a
speech to the State Nursing Home
Association in Redmond.
Straub quoted Keizcr as saying
that an 83-year-old welfare recip
ient was operated on for a hernia
when he would have been as well
off with a less expensive truss.
Straub said Dr. Keizer called
this a flagrant abuse and asked:
"How does Dr. Keizer know that
this is an abuse."
Keizer said he wrote Sen.
Straub asking if they could meet
so he could obtain Straub's help
on the problems faced in provid
ing medical care for welfare re
cipients. Keizer explained that under the
law the commission is allowed to
provide only the minimum ade
quate medical care.
"1 was only trying to point up
the law that if the commission is
to provide full care then the law
must be changed," Keizer said.

Salaries Aren't Reason
For Teachers Quitting
Are Roseburg school teachers
satisfied with the district's salary
A report prepared by Supt. M.
C. Teller and presented to the
school board this week indicates
dissatisfaction with salary has not
caused teachers to terminate con
tracts in the Roseburg system.
Deller said his office has been
keeping a record on reason, why
teachers quit the system since
1958. He noted that last year 38
teachers terminated their con
tracts but salary schedule and per
sonel policies were not a reason
for temination.
Of the 38, nine teachers left be
cause they wanted to advance
themselves professionally and an
other left to enter private industry.
Others resigned for a variety of
reasons. The two previous years
showed only a small percentage of
resignations for salary reasons.
Deller said the district has a
normal turn over of personnel. The
district's salary schedule is rep
resented among the top schedules
in the state.
