    Dillon Says Interest Rate Parity
Necessary For Monetary Stability
ury , Secretary Douglas Dillon
said today that international
monetary stability requires that
all major trading countries main
tain short-term interest rates
"reasonably well in line with
each other."
Dillon, in a speech prepared
for the annual meeting of the In
ternational Monetary Fund,
(IMF), admitted that domestic
financial goals sometimes would
limit this emphasis on uniform
short term rates.
However, he said that it gen
erally should be feasible "to en
courage small changes in short
term rates in the interest of

Hereford Shot, Killed
By Spotlight Hunters
A registered polled Hereford
cow belonging to Estle Paris was
shot and killed late Friday night
or early Saturday morning on the
600-acre Paris ranch on Buckhorn
Road near Glide.
It is believed that hunters spot
lighting for deer the night before
the opening of the hunting season
were responsible ' for killing the
animal, reports correspondent Mrs.
Arthur Selby.
Mrs. Paris reported' that this is
the second year in a row that stock
has been killed on. the ranch just
prior to the opening of the hunting
season. 1 The dead animal's 5-monlh-old
calf is being hand fed
in an attempt to save it.

The U.S. government recently
took action to raise short-term
rates to discourage investors
from sending their money over
seas. The loss of short-term cap
ital has aggravated the U.S. bal
ance of payments problem.
Dillon said that interest rate
adjustments bv a country and
their subsequent cllccl on inicr-
niiinnil monetary stability
should be discussed by such fi
nancial organizations as the IMF.
"The critical question is how
the adjustments are to be
made," he said.
"Balance can be and too often
in the past has been forced by
measures that endanger domestic
stability or the prospects for
growing trade."
Dillon said the solution was "to
find effective ways for reconcil

on tixed exchange rates, with the
freedom of each nation to pursue

improvements in international

Bank President George D.
Woods told the 700 delegates
from more than 100 countries
Monday that the time had come
for the bank to "venture onto
less familiar terrain" in assist

Woods said that despite voices
of pessimism, he had no doubt
that a considerable advance has
been made by the underdevel

riod. But, he said, the development

are huge and the need, to quick

Woods recommended that the
bank, which in the past has op
crated on extremely conservative
lines, broaden its horizons.
First, he said, it would have to
do more to help agriculture

oped countries employs four-fifths
0f the population and provides
materials and generates market
demand which together are the
basis for healthy industrial
The bank has not loaned
enough for agricultural needs in
Uic past, and there is a clear and
urgent need for it to do so now,
Woods added.

caused by a defective flue result
ed in an undetermined amount of
damage Saturday night to the

able to confine damage to the up
stairs part of the home and the

fire fighters were able to remove
furniture, clothing and bedding
from the residence although some
loss of clothing was reported. The
home had recently been purchased
and redecorated by the William

Brief By Third Party
Enters College Case
Roseburg attorney Eldon Caley
said today he will file a brief as
"amicus curiae" in the communi
ty college case "Mohr vs. the
state Board of Education" which
is now involved in an appeal be
fore the Oregon Supreme Court.
Caley said the brief will be filed
He explained that a local organ
ization comprised oi citizens from
all parts of the county have asked
him to appear on their behalf in
connection with the appeal. This
appearance will be in the form of
a written brief.
Permission Granted
"The rules of the court permit
interested persons who are not
technically parties to the proceed
ing to appear as amicus curiae
with leave of the court," the at
torney explained. "The court has
granted me permission to file a
brief in behalf of the citizens."
The local organization referred
to is a committee headed by
Wayne Crooch. It is a group of in
dividuals active in securing "hun
dreds of signatures from all parts
of the county" and also in speak
ing about and explaining the need
for a community college in the
county, the attorney said.
Douglas County Circuit Court
Judge Don Sanders on April 10 is
sued an order to reverse and re
mand the proceedings of the state
Board of Education in establish
ing the proposed Umpqua Com
munity College. This meant that
the action by the state board to
establish boundary lines for the
college district was dissolved.
Judge Sanders' order stemmed
from testimony presented at a pub
lic hearing at which Al Mohr, a
resident of the Glendale School
District, presented an appeal ob
jecting to the college district plan.
Appeal Filed
Subsequent to the court action
here, an appeal to the Oregon Su
preme Court was filed by the
state Board of Education. Sanders
decision was based on the fact that

the state board, in its public
hearing on the community college,
bad entered no facts pertaining to
the district in its records, so there
by had no basis on which to enter
its decision.
Caley said the general theme of
the brief is "the belief that all
statutory requirements needed to
pave the way for a vote on estab-1
lishment of a community college
have been met and that there is no
necessity for further proceedings
before the state Board of Educa-
tion.'.' -
The attorney said the organiza
tion he represents feels the mat
ter should be resolved by the vot
ers and should not be frustrated
by further legal impediments.

Opens Today
The trial of Hugh William Mef
ford, 41. formerly of Roseburg but
more recently of Omaha, Neb., got
under way in Circuit Court before
Judge Don II. Sanders at 10 a.m.
Mefford is charged with rape of
a 12-year-old girl on Oct. 12, 1960.
Dist. Atty. Avery Thompson is the
prosecutor and Stephen M. King
of Portland, defense attorney.
The case has been long pending
and 'involved legal maneuvers
that brought about the dismissal
I of one indictment and a plea of
double jeopardy in connection with
a new indictment brought by the
urauu jui,.
i The original indictment charged
Mefford with rape upon the daugh
ter of his wife, allegedly commit
ted July 9, 1961, but after the
trial opened Oct. 26, 1962, the dis
trict attorney moved for dismissal
when a preponderance of evidence
indicated the mother of the victim
and the defendant -were not man
and wife at the time of the al
leged crime. Further, that the case
could not proceed under the theory
that rape was a lesser included
crime or that the allegations con
tained in the indictment concern-
the fact the victim was the
1 daughter of the defendant's wife
, were immaterial allegations.
I After this dismissal the Grand
against Mefford charging him sim
ply with rape, but alleging an oc
currcncc on a different date.
Mefford pleaded innocent to the
charge and also entered a plea of
former jeopardy, claiming that he
had already been acquitted of the
crime charged in the new indict
ment. Judge Sanders, ruling on the mo
lion, declared that double jeopardy
did not apply as the new indict
ment alleges a different date,
which constitutes a different crime.
Testimony in the original trial
was to the effect the act of rape
had occurred several times on dif
ferent dates.
