Decision due
at meeting
on January 2
Possibility of a new trailer
plant operation in Bend was re
vealed at the Friday noon lunch
eon meeting of the Bend Cham
ber of Commerce.
Manager Marion Cady told di
rectors that negotiations are cur
rently underway for lease of the
building built originally for Hens
lee Mobile Homes and more re
cently used by Alpine Industries.
According to Cady, a California
trailer manufacturing firm has in
dicated an interest in locating a
plant in Bend. The company has
three plants already in operation.
Officials of the company. Cady
said, report that a final decision
on whether to locate in Bend
probably will be made at a meet
ing of directors on January 2. At
that time they will meet with rep
resentatives of Oregon Mutual
Savings Bank, owners of the va
cant building here.
Approximately 60 Men
It has been indicated that the
plant would employ approximate
ly 60 men and would produce an
average of two trailers a day.
Local efforts to obtain the in
dustry for Bend have been hand
led by the Chamber and its in
dustrial development committee.
In other business at the board
meeting, directors approved an
operating budget for 13 of $27,
82S. In discussing the proposal
with the board members, Maurice
Shelton, chamber treasurer, em
phasized the importance of dues
collections in assuring adequate
financing of chamber activities in
the coming year.
Directors also discussed cham
ber participation in an effort at
the state legislature to obtain for
the state department of education
a consultant in conservation and
outdoor education.
Proposal Explained
Gunster Arends, representing
the Mid-State Soil Conservation
District, attended the meeting to
explain various phases of the pro
posal. He emphasized the im
portance of beginning such a pro
gram at early levels of educa
tion. Arends noted that Rep. Kessler
Cannon has given strong backing
in the program and is interested
in obtaining expressions of local
support which he can take with
him to the legislature in January.
Gordon Randall, chamber presi
dent, read a draft of a proposed
resolution and following discus
sion of the resolution it was de
cided to delay final action until a
further study of the situation could
be made.
Trailways Extension
William Niskanen, general man
ager of Pacific Trailways, report
ed to the board that his company
is currently seeking to extend its
service to Corvallis and Newport
and to establish a run between
Corvallis and Eugene. Hearings
by the Public Utilities Commis
sion will be held in the near fu
ture. He asked the board for its
help in making a presentation be
fore the PUC.
Directors indicated favorable
interest in the extension of Trail
ways service and will draft a res
olution in support of the move.
The board also agreed to under
take a study of the possibility of
extending fire protection to areas
in the Tumalo district. The ac
tion was prompted by a recent
letter appearing in The Bulletin.

Spectacular chase
Boy escapes, leads
pursuers to river
By Gerald Drapeau
Bulletin Staff Writer
A spectacular jail break and
pursuit ended in the freezing wa
ters of the Deschutes River ear
ly yesterday evening after Brian
Hall, 15-year-old Bend youth held
for auto theft, broke out of the
city jail.
Hall was finally subdued bv po
lice officers in Drake Park after
making a vain attempt to swim
the cold river. He was turned
over to the county sheriff and
lodged in the county jail.
Hall is the youth who overturn
ed a pickup truck he had stolen
Wednesday after a wild police
chase through the west side dis
trict. The arresting policemen had
to subdue the boy with handcuffs
after he pulled a knife on the of
ficer. He is the son of Mr. and
Mrs. Taber F. Hall of 1215 Jack
Hall managed his escape about
5:15 when officer Jack Perry
went upstairs to feed the prison
er. Perry saw Hall's empty food
box placed at the end of the cell
block. He was picking it up when
he heard the cell block door slam
and lock behind him, and sighted
Hall climbing up the bars outside
the block to a four-foot space be
tween the cell top and the roof.
The prisoner immediately made
his way to a narrow air vent and
squirmed through it to reach the
roof. The officer's shouts for help
brought two more officers to the

The death toll on the nation's
highways was low today at the
start of the long New Year's
weekend holiday.
At 9 a.m. PST United Press
International counted 19 traffic fa
talities since the start of the 102-
hour weekend at 6 p.m. Friday.
The holiday death breakdown:
Traffic 19

Miscellaneous 8
Total 28
By contrast, the traffic toll stood
at 82 at the end of the first 18
hours of last weekend's Christmas
holiday. The holiday ended with
854 traffic fatalities, the second
highest total on record.

estimated that from 420 to 480

A Portland woman became Ore
gon's first fatality of the long hol
iday weekend today when she was
fatally injured in a head-on crash
south of Dayton.
Agda Jean Johnson, 21, died in
the crash. Police said her car
swerved into the path of an on
coming car. Two young women in
the other car, Judy M. Powell of
Yamhill and Viola Hodney of
Carlton, were seriously injured.
They were hospitalized at Mc

The apparent ease with which
