''Examine Cause
Of Plane Crash
PORTLAND, Ore., (UP)—An in
tensive investigation of the cir
cumstances surrounding the plane
crash which killed three Oregon
top executive leaders last week was
under way Monday.
Leon D. Cuddeback, Seattle, re
gional representative of the civil
aeronautics board, headed the
group of investigators which is
working in close cooperation with
district and state civil aeronautics
administration inspectors.
Cuddeback said that after pre
liminary investigation a hearing
will be held in Klamath Falls Nov.
13. Klamath Falls is near the scene
of the plane wreckage in which the
bodies of the late Governor Earl
Snell, Secretary of State Robert S.
Farrell, Senate President Marshall
Cornett and Pilot Clifford Hogue
were found.
Although the plane’s propellor
gave evidence that the crash may
have been caused by engine failure,
investigators did not believe this
was necessarily so. Also, the
weather was considered good en
ough for flying under visual night
rules, despite intermittent rain.
But the possibility of wing or car
buretor icing was being considered.
The pilot of the Beachcraft Bon
anza plane, although twice con
victed of violations of civil air reg
ulations, was believed competent
by most observers. He was about
to be appointed flight examiner
for CAA.
The plane struck the ground with
wheels and flaps retracted, indicat
ing that Hogue was not attempting
to land. There were unobstructed
meadows in which to land on either
side of the crash point. Damage
trees and a 35-foot gash in the
following an eastward course and
indicated it may have gone into
a shallow dive and turned some
what when it struck a small tree.

Models Want ed
In Photo Work
An additional source of income
to bolster up that sagging budget
is opened to students today. The
Nolph photo salon in the Laraway
building has issued a call for 150
models, to pose for both natural
color and black and white photo
The Nolph Salon has a three
year contract with an eastern firm
to do illustrating work on an as
signment basis.
These pictures will be used for
catalogs and also to illustrate mag
azine stories, according to James
and Virginia Nolph, owners.
“Beauty is not a necessary fac
tor. The homey types are preferred
for the greater part of illustrat
ing work,” says Mrs. Nolph. “It
will' be necessary to give some
training in modeling work and we
do not plan to charge for that,”
she says.
Models will be paid $4 per hour
and if professional models are
available, they will receive $10 per
hour. The Nolphs say it may be
necessary to train some of the
more promising models to do pro
fesional work.
Men will be needed also. Of the
150 total, 80 per cent will be wo
men and the remainder men and
children. Registering has already
begun and will continue through
out this month.
