Bill creating
new land
policy voted
SALEM (UPI) Eastern Ore
gon ranchers would be able to
borrow the money for a $6 million
management job on state - owned
grazing lands under a bill that
passed the House today.
The measure went to the Sen
ate. Rep. Robert Smith, R-Burns,
said it would apply to some 700,
000 acres of state-owned grazing
lands in Eastern Oregon that are
leased out.
He said the bill contains a "new
land management policy" for Ore
gon. Three Steps
The measure contains three
steps in land management.
First, the land board would be
authorized to classify its lands in
use: Grazing, farming, recreation.
It would designate which tracts
should be sold or traded, and
which need reseeding.
The second phase calls for
blocking of state lands to provide
for better management.
The heart of the program is
contained in the third step: Auth
orization for ranchers who lease
the lands to borrow money from
the State Land Board for their
Smith said the land board has
about $11 million invested in
bonds and available for properly
secured loans. He said loans
would bring higher earnings into
the common school fund.
Other Itamt
The House passed a bill to pro
hibit "unfair practices" against
groups of farmers that organize
to discuss prices for their crops.
A resolution was introduced in
the Senate by the Senate Com
mittee on Education to create an
. interim commutes on education
composed of nine members.
It would operate on a $30,000
budget and report back to the
1965 legislature.
Colored TV

NEW YORK (UPI) Colored
television pictures of ballet per
formers electronically danced
9.000 miles into space Wednesday
night and were successfully re
layed to Europe by way of Tel-
star II.
The French tracking station,
which 24 hours earlier had report
ed the first picture transmissions
by the newest U.S. communica
tions satellite "weak and shaky,"
said Wednesday night's reception
was "excellent."
Black and white video tape
transmissions also were described
as "extremely good" by the
French station located at Pleu
muer Bodou. The British tracking
station at Goonhilly Downs, which
did not tune in the color trans
mission, reported the black and
white pictures were "very good."
Telstar II was fired into orbit
Tuesday morning by the National
Aeronautics and Space Adminis
tration in cooperation with the
American Telephone k Telegraph
Co., which built Telstar I and II.
Tuesday night's transmissions
had been reported weak and
shaky because the satellite's orbit,
which reached 6,500 miles at
apogee, was not presently the best
for television relay.
A boost of power at the ground
station at Andover, Maine, how
ever, resulted in a satisfactory
signal Wednesday night.

Haiti to take Washington's advice

Welcome 'shot'
County offers city
street project aid
By Gerald Drapeau
Bulletin Staff Writer
Bend's long-suffering street Im
provements program received a
welcome shot in the . arm last
night when Deschutes County
Court officials offered their as
sistance in future street projects
on a year-to-year basis.
The offer means the Court will
clear, grade and provide a rock
base for streets slated to undergo
paving, amounting to a consider
able share of total costs. To af-

dozen state police officers contin
ued a systematic check of about
15 cabins in remote woods ot
northeastern Oregon today In their
search for Billy Evans, 44, Flora,
wanted for two slayings at Clark
ston, Wash.
But officers admitted they had
turned up no trace of the husky
stump rancher since he waved a
gun at them and disappeared into
the hills Tuesday.
The officers, armed with high
powered rifles were using a pick
up truck to tour the back roads
to check each empty cabin for
signs that Evans," a woods wise
native of the area, had broken
into one for food or rest.
Other officers were stopping
each cattle truck as it passed
through the area to search it for
the wanted man.

fee ted Bend property owners, the
proposal means a substantial cut
in street improvement assess
ments. City Commissioner Leon Dever
eaux, who with other commission
ers heard the proposal put forth
by Judge D. L. Penhollow, called
it, "The biggest step forward in
the paving program that Bend has
ever seen." Bend paving pro
grams have been at a standstill
since an unfavorable Circuit Court
decision last year supported Third
Street property owners who ob
jected to paying total costs of a
paving and widening project on
their street. The Court decision
was later re-affirmed in State
Supreme Court.
Lower Payments
Last week city commissioners
decided to go ahead with paving
of a handful of streets, but were
apprehensive about the reactions
of affected property owners, con
ccrning assessments. Tne courts
offer will mean substantially low
er oavments.
First new street to be cleared
and oaved is a three-block por
tion of W. 11th Street between
Newport and Quincy. It will cost
an estimated $13,664.94, and prop
erty owners were earlier notified
of their anticipated assessments.
This morning City Manager Hal
Puddy said these particular as
sessments probably will be reauo
ed by some 40 per cent.
Puddy emphasized that the new
City County streets policy is in
no way clearly defined. The City
will have to evaluate the offer
carefully, he said, before it
able to adopt a workable policy
on all streets.
According to Judge Penhollow,
similar assistance programs are
already in effect in Redmond and
Court officials meeting with the
judge and commissioners last
nicht were Fred Shepard and
Georqe Baker, and County Road-
master Charles Plummer.
horny issue
of prisoners
under study
Negro and white leaders confer
red with the Justice Department
in Washington by phone today in
an 11th hour attempt to keep a
shaky truce and avert new out
breaks of racial demonstrations.
It was learned that the thorni
est problem a blracial committee
as considering was dropping of
convictions and charges against
more than 2,200 Negro demon
strators arrested since the mas
sive desegregation campaign open
ed here April 3.
The negotiators were being ad
vised on legalities at the highest
level in the Justice Department.
While the negotiators would not
discuss their talks, it was under
stood Atty. Gen. Robert Kennedy
was taking a personal hand in Uie
Make Four Demands
The dropping of the charges-
most for parading without a per
mit was one of four demands
made by Negro leaders as the
price for ending the demonstra
tions. Hundreds of policemen, rein
forced by state troopers, stood by
in case of a renewed outbreak.
Several hundred Negroes gathered
at a Baptist church to await word.
Other demands listed by the Ne
groes included the desegregation
of downtown eating facilities,
equal employment opportunities
and a permanent bi-racial com
mittee to work out the city's de
segregation problems, with spe
cial emphasis on schools.
A 250-man force ot highway
patrolmen, augmented by approx
imately 400 plainclothesmen car

law and order.
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. and
the Rev. Fred Shuttlesworth, two
top Negro leaders in the desegre
gation campaign here, said they
were hopeful a solution to five
weeks of demonstrations could be
found by 1 p.m. EDT.
A bi-racial committee met
again Wednesday night but made
no announcement of results.
Negro Leadership Divided
The big problem in a settle
ment appeared to be among the
Negro leadership, sharply divided
as to whether full scale demon
strations should be resumed to
day. The racial truce, after which
all major demonstrations were
called off Wednesday while last
minute details of a permanent
agreement were discussed, al
most fell apart In the late after
noon when King was lodged In
jail for the second time in less
than a month.
The Atlanta integration leader
and the Rev. Ralph Abernathy,
another top officer in King's or
ganization, were sentenced to 180
days in jail and fined $100 the
maximum punishment tor viola
tion of an ordinance requiring a
permit to parade. '
