Returns Point To Reverses
For Republican Party
Election returns show reverses for
the republican party in" Congress' and
a general gain for the democrats.
New York gave the - democratic
governor, Roosevelt, the largest ma
jority ever given a candidate for that
office in that state. Illinois sent J.
Ham Lewis to the Senate over Ruth
Hanna McCormick, republican. .
Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho,
"v New York, South Carolina, Tennes
see, Arizona, Connecticut Maryland,
Massachusetts, Nebraska, New Mexi
co, Ohio,' Oklahoma, and Texas elect
new democratic governors.
In the closest congressional election
of years, republicans and democrats
stood almost deadlocked in both the
senate and house with actual major
ities hinging on final returns and re
counts of Tuesday's balloting.
So close was the division of the
parties of both branches that an in
dependent movement in either would
have the balance of power.

Athena Hi Football Team .
Holds Crack Pilot Rock
; ers To a Scoreless Tie
, Coach Miller's promising Athena
gridsters uncorked a few wrinkles in
Friday's football game that had much
to do with holding the ' crack Pilot
Rock high school team to a scoreless
tie...,";..... ' V(. .... Y, .,
The Rockets came to town with a
46-0 victory over Weston high dang
ling from their totum pole and had
a notch cut in it to take care of the
Athena contest, , but there was just
too much Athena line resistance to
overcome and Athena tackles were too
alert for the erstwhile end runs that
heretofore had been piling up touch
downs for the Rock.' " r
But at that, the lads from Pilot
Rock put a beautiful, aggressive
game which wan met inch for inch
by the local team. i ' ,
Twice Athena, looked strong enough
to cross the enemy goal. Once in4he
first few minutes of play, three razzel
dazzle formations were good enough
to place the pigskin on the 15 yard
line. These plays bewildered the Rock
line which was torn up for good
gains. : Then they stiffened, Athena
lost on downs and the sphere was
booted out of danger. ;
Forward passes did not get either
team anywhere. Athena gained yard
age by pounding at the line, and
Pilot Rock depended almost wholly on
end runs. At the close of the game
Pilot Rock was in Athena territory,
pepped up to take the ball over.
. There were a number of brilliant
invididual defensive plays on both
sides, bat that of Pickett for Athena
stands out. He blocked a punt 'that
sent the ball to Athena, giving the
home guard another battering chance
within the shadows of the Pilot Rock
goalposts. ' '.. ., t ,
Jenkins, Miller, Hansell, Moore and
Rogers played a pip of a game, and
a : tall lad in the backfield for the
Rock was in there all of the time.
He caused a lot of misery to Athena
all afternoon, and as the crack of the
gun sent everybody home, the last
we saw of his lanky form it was roll
ing on the ground in the clutches of
a home tackier, and tucked tightly
under his right arm was the oval,
pointed for the chalk. , line . Athjma

Cloudburst Toll Heavy
Over In Jefferson County
Bend. Full extent of the damage
caused to grazing lands, roads and
cultivated fields by the cloudburst
which late last summer sent rivers of
water coursing down ravines of the
rugged Cherry creek area of northern
Jefferson county is just being realiz
ed, with sheepmen daily bringing re
ports from isolated areas of entire
sides of hills having been torn away
by the flood. Great damage was done
to pasture lands along the divide of
Muddy and Cherry creks.
The cloudburst appeared to center
just to the east of the Cherry creek
divide, stockmen report The main
flood, rolling boulders weighing sev
eral tons, converged on lower Cherry
creek and continued on to the John
Day river, destroying everything in
its path. Considerable damage was
caused to farm property. Cultivated
lands in lower Cherry creek were
strewn with boulders.
The Antelope-Mitchell road in the
vicinity of Cherry creek was oblit
erated by the cloudburst and remains
impassable. This road in early days
was one of the main traveled routes
of eastern Oregon, carrying the heavy
traffic between the mining town of
Canyon City and The Dalles. The
Cherry creek- Ashwood road has been
repaired by Jefferosn county.
The cloudburst was one of the
worst experienced in the rugged John
Day country in 30 years.
