Controversy With City
Back of gammons' Move
Sammons' opposition to Kerr
dates back to the former's activ
ities as a member ot the finance
committee when certain carry
over funds at Oregon State col
lege were to be distributed. Some
controversy arose between Sam
mons and the college officials and
it is thought that this matter may
be aired in Sammons' explanation
of his resignation.
Mrs.' Pierce is known to be
strongly opposed to the board's
action of Tuesday but whether she
will dare to resign and thus effect
her husband's campaign for con
gressional election, is problematical.
