council nearly! a year ago has
been completed, high officials of
the PGE company told Mayor W.
W, Chadwick and a group of
council members yesterday, but
the company desires further to
break down its figures before
The survey was asked as pos
sible forerunner to putting a
people's utility district or muni
cipal ownership proposal before
The PGE officials, headed by
James II. Polhemus; president of
the company, said the survey has
revealed many things about Sa

said, was the great extent of rural
territory being served : from a
Salem distribution point on Sa

Polhemus said that the corn-;

in breaking down the survey; In

One day the elephant disap

he charged, police the statehouse.
Not even an elephant was safe.
So the police bent to their task.

The elephant was discovered, un
damaged and untarnished, quietly
gathering dust on the desk in the
executive department of a certain
high official, an official who had
absolutely no interest in elephants
except as the symbol of the Grand
Old Party. He expressed surprise
when the elephant was discovered.
