CHICAGO, Oct. B, (AP) Dis-
QUalified In the American Legion
drum corps contest because the
Judges found its marching time
too long, the Salem, Ore., corps
today protested the decision and
indicated It -would seek a new
ruling from the national conven
tion delegates.
Tom Hill, manager of the corps,
which won the contest last . year,
said . the Salem outfit had been
stricken from the competition be
cause of a five-second lapse be
tween its ten minutes of drill and
ts 15 minutes of playing.
Hill appealed to the legion's
national Judge advocate, Remster
A. Bingham, who ruled the corps
contest was entirely within the
urlsdictlon of the convention's
contest committee.
Miami, Fla., and Seattle, Wash.,
corps were disquaunea oy tne
same rule. At contest headquar
ters, Frank Galllvan, chairman,
explained that the losing corps
'stood too long."
The Sa.em corps, one of the
smallest In competition, was given
second ranking in the contest
until It was ruled out.
"If the Judges had cut down
our score because of the timing
mistake, we wouldn't have object
ed," Hill said. "Their ruling
threw us out of the contest en
tirely." Plans, to greet the Salem drum
corps were being delayed, last
night pending receipt of word as
to the time of its arrival here
from California via the Southern
Pacific-. It was expected the main
party would return here some
time between Monday and Thurs
day next week. At least a dozen
of the 41 men who went to Chi
cago aboard the American Legion
special train will make stops with
friends and relatives enroute
Suggestions were being made
that the corps at least parade

The battle against P. VJ t.

yesterday afternoon when
Oregon Truck Owners and. the

The telegram, which asked an
immediate reply, was unanswer

at 11 o'clock last night.

clarified in the courts. Among
the truck owners' representatives
at the conference were Mayor
Douglas McKay, Percy A. Cup

and IL G. Bunker of Corvallis.
As an alternative to no action
by the governor, the nearly toe
truckmen assembled and repre

appeal to continue to roll their
trucks to serve the public 1 bat
