(AP) Phil Metochanlf chaJr--man
of the republican ; state
central committee,, has catted
the committee to meet IJridajr
July 25, for the purpose; of "
yimifa mad nominating; a caa
dldate for governor.
; Metochan, , however, haa not
named the meettng place but
baa written letter to the com
mlttemen asklnc where they
wonld like to meet.-Several Ore
con cities hare made s bid for
the meeting; '
Slovly the midsnmmer sua is
drlYlnff away the foe which
- baa bees obscurinc Oregon poll
tics. Visibility Is .rapidly improv
ing for yetermn politicians whose
compass and instruments were so
badly wrecked by the ' political
overturn of primary day in May
only to be restored to working
order by the "act of God" a
month later.
These are the stars which hare
projected themselves in the week
past, which are proving useful for
those politically minded to get
their bearings again:
1. The renunciation - by Gov.
Norblad of aspirations for nomin
ation at the hands of the state
2. The meeting of the eastern
Oregon members of the commit
tee who decided to . fOTce no
eastern Oregon man as the party
S. The settlement of legislative
key, positions: Marks Of Albany
In the presidency of the senate
and Ionergan of Multnomah as
speaker of the house.
4. A little subsidence of the
call for an "independent" candi
date to adopt the Joseph pro
gram. Many Bids In for '
Important Meeting ; ,n
No date has been set Xor : the
meeting of the state central com
mittee and no place has been se
lected. Eastern Oregon proposes
The Dalles, while Astoria urges
the seaeoast where the political
heat would be mitigated by ocean
breeses. Eugene bids for the
chance to serve as host. The pros
pect is the the committee will
meet early in August, v but the
place is uncertain with Portland
in the lead. Metschan, the chair
man. Is a hotel keeper, and the
city hotel business is usually
light In August.
So far as candidates go the list
seems to be shrinking instead of
growing. Norblad is out; and he
was about half the list. The oth
er half Is still composed of T. B.
Kay, state treasurer.
The only other names receiv
ing much mention are those of R.

Hirani Johnson Labels Pact
as Step Toward Old
World Alliance
Both Sides Girtf Armor for
Battle in Special Ses-
--sion Monday
Opponents of the London naval
treaty -made the first move today
preparatory to next, w,eek's spe
cial senate session to consider the
pact. Senator Johnson, republi
can, California, urging its rejec
tion in a formal statement, on the
ground that it was "iniquitous
and inequitable."
1 The fiery Callfornian, who will
lead the opposition to ratifica
tion, asserted the treaty was the
"first step under the guise a fic
titious limitation of armaments,
and. in thejioly name ef peace,
to take the United States Into the
international adventures' whleh
oar people abhor. .
Senator Johnson's statement
eame after a day of preparation
by both sides for the special
treaty session called br President
Hoover for Monday. Republican
leaders said It was likely the de
bate would not get under way un
til Tuesday because of the desire
of many senators to prolong their
brief vacation between sessions.
Senator Watson, of Indiana,
the majority pilot, thought Mon
day's .session would be brief, but
said the treaty would be taken
up immediately if a quorum de
veloped. A special message from
Mr. Hoover ureinsr ratification is
"document was in the course of
preparation today at the presi
dential camp in the Virginia
mountains. - "H
; Senators Watson, and McNary,
assistant republican leader, were
expected to go to the Hoover
camp over the week-end to dis
cuss the treaty and other matters.
The opening speech in the sen
ate eontest will be made by Sen
ator Swanson, ot "Virginia, rank
ing' democrat on the fareirn re
lations committee, who haa pre
pared a 12,000 word address urg-
Chairman Borah of the mm.
mittee, one of those who signed
the favorable report on the pact
from the foreign relations group,
said he was "ready for a vote
now." He did net hellere. haw-
ever, that this could be had bo-
Tore ten days or two weeks. Trea
ty proponents are confident of a
big majority for ratification.

Bids to Be Opened Monday
Night on Commercial
and Winter Spans
Monday night will be bridge
night at the meeting of the Sa
lem city council. Bids will be
opened at both the North Com
mercial street span and the Win
ter street bridge over Pringle
creek. Both projects have been
pending for months. The en
gineering work was completed
and bids finally called for. De-
aiaioa. oa- both jobs .will -be made
after the bids are opened. With
construction costs now at lower
levels the anticipation is enter
tained that bids for both Jobs will
be so reasonable that work may
proceed at once, helping to give
employment to Salem workmen
during the summer.
The matter of vacating a por
tion of Trade street for the use of
the paper mill will not' come up
till the meeting two weeks hence.
As the matter now stands the
council will probably disallow the
request. The projection of rail
road tracks into the street re
maining would have the effect of
reducing Its width too greatly, is
the opinion that has been ex
pressed by members of the coun
cil. A move has been started to
have the paper company run its
own siding track inside the pro
posed new building, leaving the
other track for a passing track
exclusively and not for storage.
With this concession the vacation
has a chance of passage by the

Thousands saw the barrel of
wood and steel plunge over the

barrel of a trace of the man's body
