The new publicity committee ef

Harvey E. Crona chairman and O. D.
Khy aecretary. Mr. Crosa become
permanent head of the committee,
and Mr. Eby will look after the work
of the aecretary'a office until such
time ax a permanent salaried secre
tary 1 selected by the committee.
The personnel of the committee fol
lows: II. E. Cross, chairman; O. D.
Eby. George A. Harding, Prank
Uuni'h and Linn E. Jones.
i The committee is making haste
I slowlv. with a view to perfectly har
monious action. George A. Harding,
who was elected a member of the
nmlttec by the club's board of
governor, resigned, because of other
biiHlnens, anil the four remaining
member of the committee will rec
ommend a man as his successor.
Just as soon as the publicity com
mittee offecta permanent organization
cured for this salary, and the com
mlttee will engage a secretary to
look after the office work and' the
details of the position, while his line
of work will be mapped out by the
members of the committee.
There Is about $1000 on band in the
publicity fund, and before general
plans can be outlined definitely, the

At any rate, Jeffries and Johnson

They'll alternate making the other
leviathan howl for his mother, and if
the country at random Is lucky they'll

There is a mqvement on foot to
nullify the work of the Republican
County Central Committee In calling
a county assembly to elect 53 dele

of the anti-assembly people are said
to be at work In the country districts
In an attempt to create sentiment
against the county assembly with the
expectation that the delegates to the
county gathering will be hostile to
the whole assembly plan. If this
movement Is successful, which is
doubtful, then, with a majority in the
county assembly, that body will de
cline to send delegates to the b'.ate
assembly and will, after passing res
olutions condemning the assembly
plan, adjourn. With the belief that
movement is being mished.iors have been busy during the past
the friends of the assembly will prob -

It has been learned that the senti

In view of the fact that Clackamas
Is Uie'home of Mr. U'Ren and that
