Arkansas and one in Indiana.
The division is investigating
more than 175 complaints with
regard to civil works in 45 states.
When the civil works originally
asked the public works unit to in
vestigate the charges, they em
braced all states except Maine,
New Hampshire and Vermont, and
it was said tonight there were
still no complaints from these
three states.
Officials of the division of in
vestigation declined to discuss the
nature of the charges in which
prosecution will be pressed in
Kentucky, beyond saying they
were "of a serious nature."
The case in Maryland involved
the misuse of . a civil works ad
ministration requisition which
was presented to a liquor dealer
and liquor obtained with it.
The ease In Arkansas involved
an official of the civil works who
was said to be obtaining part of
a worker's pay.

Confirms Previous Hint at
Candidacy; Won't Give
Up Ball Interests
PORTLAND, Ore., Jan. 30.-()
-Thomas L. Turner, former base
ball scout for the Philadelphia
Athletics and present owner of
the Portland baseball club of the
Pacific coast league, has thrown
his hat into Oregon's gubernator
ial race, but will retain his base
ball derby.
Turner told the Associated
Press tonight that he would prob
ably file his candidacy for gover
nor in about two weeks.
Declaring he was not a poll
tician, Turner announced a plat
form of "economy and laws for
the working man." First mention
of his candidacy was treated
lightly, but Turner maintains he
is serious and will announce more
of his platform later.
"Lots of funny things happen
in baseball and politics," he said
when asked if he took his can
didacy seriously.
Although his campaign has not
been definitely charted yet. Tur
ner believes in contacts with
"The more contacts the better
It is going to be a battle that will
make the race between the Sen
ators and Yankees look like the
washout in comparison. Any guy
in the race against me will know
he has been in a battle."
Turner is a republican, but par
ty politics are not always topmost
in Oregon s governorship cam
paigns. Governor Julius L. Meier,
a republican, was elected on an
Independent ticket at the last
election. He has not announced
yet whether he would be a candi
date to succeed himself.
But it will take more than pol
itics to pry Turner from base
ball. He now owns the bulk of the
stock in the Portland baseball

$350 Will Be Sent as
Resort Benefit
Nearly 1000 Salem people paid
homage to the 52nd birthday of
Franklin Delano Roosevelt in a.
colorful ball held in the newly re
finished armory last night.
Thousands more listened in at
IS o'clock to the president's
gracious message of appreciation
for the financial help for paraly
tic children, moneys which will be
received from the net proceeds of
the dances, 6000 of which were
held throughout the nation.
Official returns at midnight
showed that 400 couples had paid
admission to the event, which of
ficials of the dance estimated
would mean $350 would be for
warded from Salem to the home
in Georgia whose chief sponsor
is the president. .
Governor and Mrs. Julius L.
Meier were guests of honor here,
coming shortly after 9 o'clock to
lead the grand march in which
hundreds of couples participated.
The march closed with Cole Mc
Elroy's orchestra playing the na
tional anthem.
The dance music furnished by
the visiting group was nicely in
terspersed with several feature
numbers, headed by two violin
solos played by Miss Mary Schulz
of this city and accompanied by
Miss Ruth Bedford. Members of
the McElroy organization provid
ed several variety numbers.
The armory was resplendent in
draped bunting, gold fringed flags
and a huge national emblem for a
ceiling. Palms and flags formed
the background for the orchestra
and the patrons' corner glowed
with soft light from floor lamps
Tapestries on the walls and deep-
pile rugs on the floor together
with over-stuffed furniture made
the corner the most attractive
place in the ball room.

and set in motion machinery for
reducing the gold content of the
dollar and setting up a stabilisa
