    Canyon Plunge
Kills Palominos
Two great palomino registered
horses met an untimely and quick
death near Detroit Dam, Monday
morning, July 9, at 10:30 a.m. They
were killed seconds after the trailer in
which they were riding and the car
pulling it hurtled into the North San-
tiam River Canyon to a river terrace
some 400 feet below highway 222
and near Kinney Creek, located a
mile or so upstream from the Corps of
Engineers office building at Detroit
Jam.
Otto’s Lucky Number, a fine stal-
:on, and Alien Sandy, a gelding,
father and son, were the well-trained
show horses of Mr. Thomas W. Allen
of Salem. Mr. Allen stated that he
arried $10,000 fire and theft insur­
ance on these valuable horses, but had
no insurance coverage of such an event
as this tragedy represents.
Otto’s Lucky Number, sire of 380
.olts, was Northwest Champion stock
and range horse and held national
fame. Allen Sandy, Oregon state
champion cutting horse, was con­
sidered as one of the ten best in his
class in the United States. Recently
Mr. Allen gave an exhibition at Top­
penish, Washington, using Allen Sandy
m the role of a cutting horse sans
bridle or control equipment, an un­
paralleled feat.
While driving on his way over
.highway 222 to Silver Lake in east­
ern Oregon, Allen’s 1946 Cadillac
sedan developed steering trouble. He
had turned around and was moving in
second gear towards Detroit Dam
when the front wheels of his car
locked solidly in one position on a
curve cut into the mountain-side
bordering highway 222.
Allen stated that he nearly had the
car and trailer under control for a
safe stop when first, the car, and then,
the trailer, lost traction as the unit
ran upon the sharp loose scattered
rock on the irregular shoulder of the
highway and plunged down the steep
boulder-strewn incline into the gaping
canyon.
Allen, who was alone in the car,
narrowly escaped injury when he
jumped to safety seconds after he

pace and will continue so until the
