FTC files charges
Action aimed
at Harney
Federal Trade Commission (FTC)
today filed charges of false ad
vertising against two development
firms selling land in Lake Valley,
It was the fifth case filed by
the government in the past seven
weeks in a campaign to protect
prospective landowners from be
ing lured into buying a pig in a
poke. .
The FTC filed a similar case in
April involving land sales in New
Mexico. In the last seven weeks,
the Justice Department, in co
operation with postal inspectors,
has filed three cases charging
mail fraud in connection with land
sales in western states.
In its complaint today, the FTC
named Harney County Land De
velopment Corp., Chicago, and
Harney County Escrow Co.,
Burns, Ore.
Also Named
Also named in the complaint
were John M. Phillips, Jack C.
Cherbo, and Richard D. Walk

Willis F. Bardwell, of the Oregon
The complaint charged that the
companies printed deceptive
claims, pictures and photographs
in advertisements in metropolitan
It said the advertisements
claimed the land was located "in
a fertile valley" and "in the
west's greatest recreation area."
It said the area was not suitable
for cultivation.
The advertisements also con
tained the words hunt, fish, and
swim, although the area is not
close to any hunting, fishing,
swimming, skiing, boating or sim
ilar recreational facilities.
In addition Hie advertisements
indicated the land was located in
a "sunny invigorating climate"
with "300 days of warm wonder
ful sunshine throughout the year."
The FTC said the climate in the
area was neither moderate nor
The complaint also charged that
the advertisements indicated the
land had a value greater than the
offering price and that it was like
ly to Increase in value by as much
as 5,000 per cent in the future. It
said these claims misrepresented
the present and future value of
the land.
The companies and their offi
cials have 30 days in which to file
an answer to the FTC complaint.

No evidence found
of Chinese ascent
American Everest expedition re
ported today that the two men
who reached the peak of the
world's highest mountain Wednes
day found no evidence that a Com

it before them.
Red China claimed it placed a
team on the summit in 1960 from
the north side and that it left a
Chinese flag and a bust of Mao
Tse-tung there to prove it.
However, Peking never has dis
played any photographic evidence
and international mountaineering
circles have given little credence
to the story.

President Francois Duvalier's
embattled government imposed
martial law on this tense capital
Friday night and decreed a nine

These emergency measures ap

the activities of night-prowling

the possibility of over-eager

moving about the city after dark.
Although tight censorship veiled
most details, there are known to
have been frequent skirmishes

number of persons are believed
to have been killed in a clash

say firing was audible nightly
from Thursday through Saturday
last week near the northern port

Duvalier's difficulties assumed
international dimensions when the
Dominican government protested

call from the local office of
Washington, D.C. Automatic
Phone switch here
set for midnight
By I la S. Grant i
Bulletin Staff Writer
Bend residents will be able to
make their first direct dialing
long distance telephone calls, I
starting at midnight tonight. The
gigantic nation-wide network oper
ates by a combination of express
way-type long distance lines con
nected to switching centers locaU
ed strategically throughout the
country. Also involved is the auto
matic accounting equipment
which records details of the call
for billing purposes.
Completing a call by direct dis
tance dialing across the country
usually takes 15 seconds or less.
A test call to Senator Wayne
Morse in Washington, D.C, from
the local telephone exchange yes
torday, went through in about that
time. An earth satellite, with a
maximum speed of 18,000 miles
an hour, is 40 times slower Uian

If the person making the call
has the telephone number of a
person he wants to talk to on
the East Coast, for instance, the
call can be completed quickly
without hearing a human voice,
except that of the person who
picks up the telephone to receive
the message. If the telephone
number is not known, it can bn
obtained by dialing the universal
information number, 55.H212,
first dialing the digit "1", for long
distance, and the area code num

Pence noted that this year the
college enrolled approximately
500 students in the regular col
lege program fall term. In addi
tion to this group, over 600 in

conducted in the high schools of
the various communities of the
area under the adult continuing
education program conducted by

number is not dialed for DDD
calls within the stato.
Detailed information about di
rect distance dialing is given in
the new telephone book. A map
indicates code numbers for the
entire United States, and pro
vinces in Canada, and four pages
are devoted to area codes for
many cities. In some cases, there
are two or more code numbers in
each stato.
Back to that hypothetical call to
the East Coast. Suppose it is to
Buffalo, N.Y. First the caller
dials the numeral "1" to connect
his phone with the long distance
network. Then he would dial the
tliree-numcral code designating
the geographical area (716 for
Buffalo). And last he would dial
the seven digits of the tolephone
number he is calling.
Immediately the switching
equipment at the company's cen
tral office here in Bend would
recognize that this is a long dis
tance call out of Oregon. The au
tomatic accounting equipment
would start collecting the details
of the call. At the same time the
switching equipment here would
send the area code and the desir
ed phone number on an "express
way" line to tho company's sec
tional long distance switching
center in Portland.
Making their presence known in
the Portland center, the digits
would announce that they are
headed for the East Coast. The
Portland switching equipment
would at once pick out an express
route for the call to follow cast
ward. If the main route for the
call were busy, then the Port
land equipment would search out
an alternate "expressway."
If the caller doesn't know the
number, he dials "1" for long dis
tance, the three numeral code
number and the universal infor
mation number, "555-1212." When
the number is obtained, the caller
dials again, putting the entire
automatic process into operation.
Then the call speeds on its way
across the country perhaps
passing through as many as four
or five more switching centers be
fore It reaches the East Coast.
There equipment at he last
switching center or central of
fice in tiiis vast network rings the
bell of the phone being called and
connects it to the long distance
expressway across tlie country
from Bend.

Mayor calls
Sen. Morse
Senator Wayne Morse, in Wash
ington, D.C, received the first di
rect dialing long distance call
from Bend yesterday, in a test of
the automatic equipment from the
Bond exchange. The switchover to
the new system will be at mid
night tonight.
First to speak to the senator
was Bend Mayor E. L. Nielsen.
He was followed by Hal Puddy,
city manager, and Dr. Ordc S.
Pinckney, Morse's Oregon cam
paign manager in the last elec
tion. "This call went through very
fast," Mayor Nielsen told the
senator after an exchange of
greetings. "About like calling
Redmond." Then the mayor asked
Morse about tho possibility of
Bend qualifying for the urban re
newal program, to obtain more
off-street parking and possibly a
community center.
Senator Morse said that Inas
much as Bend has been designat
ed a "distressed area" for urban
renewal purposes, It is possible
that such projects could be under
taken, and that he would look into
the matter personally.
Puddy sent greetings from Jesse
Yardley to Robert II. Bargewcll,
Yakima, Wash., who is attending
the Ninth Pan American Con
gress, in the interest of the Oka-nogan-Cariboo
Association, work
ing for designation of Highway
97, irom Klamath Falls to Fair

Pan-American Highway. Already
marked through South America to
Mexico City, tho proposed route
supported by OCT A goes from
there to Nogales. Tucson, Phoe
nix, Las Vegas, Reno and Klam
ath Falls.
Speaking to Dr. Pinckney, Sen
ator Morse said that he is great
ly impressed by the reality of di
rect distance dialing, and at
the same time expressed concern
about unemployment and its rela
tion to automation.
