News item:
Our big neighbor California has
7.5 million automobiles. It is cal
culated that if they w ere all lined
up bumper-to-bumper the line
would reach around the world.
As to that, we'll have to take
the word of the statisticians.
There's a lot of water around
the world, especially at the equa
torial belt line, and one doubts
if there is anyone willing to tack
le the job of counting the cars
that would be under water.
But this no one who has driven
in California will doubt:
Lined up bumper-to-bumper, the
cars reach FROM ONE END OF
THE FREEWAY TO THE OTH
ER. More statistics:
California has 7,500,000 automo
biles. California's population is rough
ly 17,500,000.
That means that in California
there are 2.3 persons for each
car.
" Oregon has about 900,000 auto
mobiles. Oregon's population is rough
ly 1,800,000.
That means that in Oregon
there are only TWO persons per
car.
On a persons-per-car basis, you
More figures:
In 1981, the latest year for which
the figures are available I in my
files, at least) Oregon had just
under a million motor vehicles,
divided as follows:
Automobiles 803.617
Buses 1,486
Trucks and trailers 118,302
Motorcycles 8,097
In 1961, the REGISTRATION
revenue came to a total of \$13,
541,640. With chauffeurs and
enough at modern construction
costs to build 15 or 20 miles of
modern highways per year.
But
The 1961 gasoline tax came to
a total of \$38,445,218. It's easy
to see where the money to build
our highways comes from. (Ore
gon, by the way, has a good
claim to the glory of having in
vented the gasoline tax, thus mak
ing modern highways possible.)
That's enough figures for one
day.
So let's turn to the news about
people.
From Naples, in Italy, comes
this little talc:
Ex-King Farouk of Egypt, in
one of his rare public appear
ances these days, showed up at
the singing debut of his girl
(riend, blonde lima Capece Min
utolo. The music was all classical.
Farouk sat in the front row, beam
Who's this Farouk?
Well, he came to the throne
of Egypt at the age of 16. He
was in England at the time, being
educated. His father died, and
he returned to his native coun
try to become king. His father
came to the throne poor, but
when he died he left his son a
fortune of \$50 million.
When Farouk abdicated, under
pressure, a few years later, he
succeeded in taking the bulk of
his inherited fortune with him
and has lived the life of Riley
ever since.
This king business is a pretty
pood racket if you can abdicate

Statement
On Split Schedule
For KUHS
The KUHS Parents' Commit
tee headed by Mrs. Ted Hyde is
sued a statement today, April
concerning the committee's
stand on the proposed split shift
at the high school for the coming
bv the high school board.
The committee formulated its
position alter a meeting, March
29, with Ray Hunsakcr, superin
tendent of city schools, Willard
McKinny, KU principal, and the
On March 31 the Herald and
News printed a story reporting
the outcome of that meeting. The
main point was that the adminis
tration decided to work out a
modification to the split shift
allow ing qualified students to take
a sixth subject.
The report of the parents' com-,
mittee (comprised of Mrs. Hyde.
Mrs. Robert Chilcote. Mrs. Rex
Hiatt, Mrs. Robert Veatch. Mrs.
Lawrence Weinberg and Mrs. W il
liam Wales Jr.) stemming from
last Friday's meeting follows:
"As the result of a meeting
between our committee and Mr.
Hunsakcr, Mr. McKinny and
his staff March 29, the adminis
tration decided to look into the
following modification of the split
schedule. It it proves workable
it will be put into effect next
fall. The changes would correct
the most important educational
objections to the split schedule as
oriainally proposed, wnue proviu
teaching situation than exists un
der the extended schedule.
"The sophomores, juniors and
seniors would attend school in
the morning, and as many as pos
sible of those with the interest and
ability to handle a sixth subject
would be scheduled to do so. inc
cafeteria would be open for the
benefit of incoming and outgo
ing students desiring a noon meal
and for those taking six subjects,
during a half hour period between
morning and afternoon sessions
"The sixth period would follow
lunch and the freshmen would
also come to school at this time
and go until approximately 5:30
p.m. The number of students
overlapping at this point would
still be well below the number
now in school during peak hours
The freshmen would not get to
take a sixth subject, but in the
present freshman class very few-
students have been encouraged to
do so.
"This plan allows for the sixth
subject important both to Iho'e
going on to college and those
whose education will end with

ciplined environment; maintains

Congressman
Ullman stated.
"This water polution problem
has been a steadily growing haz
ard to both the health and live
lihood of the inhabitants of the
entire Klamath Basin. When the
algae blooms on the water a poi
son is produced which is fatal
to fish."
In pointing out that the impli
cation of the algae problem ex
tends much beyond the effect on
lish, Ullman quoted from a re
cent field study, "These bluom:
cause a deterioration uf water
quality so that it's potential for
municipal and recreational pur
poses is impaired."
The most recent survey of the
algae problem in Upper Klamath
Lake was completed in 1959 un
der the leadership of H. K. Phin
ney. This study, which covered a
lour-year period, was financed
initially by a joint effort of the
Oregon Klamath River Commis
sion and the California Klamath
River Commission. The second
and third years of the study were
supported jointly by llie Klam-
alh County Court, City of Klamath
Falls and the Klamath County
Uiamber ot Commerce. The pe
nod ot study was extended
through a fourth year on a re
duced rate of support and con
cluded June 30, 1959.
The findings were thorough as
to the nature of the algae, it's
effect and chemical makeup and
several suggestions as to possible
control measures.
It was not known whether the
proposed study by the federal
government would merely explore
areas already covered to some ex
tent by previous studies, or would
be concentrated on finding a pos
sible means of eliminating the
algae.
Indications were the funds
were for a study, and not for
control measures.
Ullman further explained that
Budget Bureau approval meant
the passing of a major hurdle.
"However, the legislative process,
especially for money bills, can be
long and difficult." Ullman said.
"I shall do everything I can to
insure that the \$50,000 amount,
which will return benefits many
times over, is included in full to
the appropriations bill for the De
partment of Health, Education and
Welfare."

just have to keep his mouth
shut," she said.
Powell,'' often a congressional
absentee, was in Washington for
the entire four days of the trial,
though a courtroom appearance
had been promised by his law
yer. A spokesman said only that
Powell would appeal the verdict.
The heavy judgment included
\$11,500 in compensatory damages
for loss of income and damage
to refutation and \$200,000 in
punitive damages for wanton,
malicious and reckless defama
tion.
The all-white jury of seven
men and live women Handed
down its verdict after lour hours
of deliberation.
The settlement came as the
newest in a spate of personal
and political setbacks for the
debonair Powell. As a 19-year
veteran of Congress and chair
man of the House Committee on
Education and Labor, he has
weathered many crises, including
income tax scandals.

FRIDAY, APRIL S, 13
By
U.S. delegate Charles C. Stelle
Warmlv welcomed" the move
and called for informal American-
Russian discussions to work out
over which President Kennedy
and Soviet Premier Nikila Khrush
chev could confer directly to head
olf a war through error.
Acceptance of the U.S. proposal
was the lirst conciliatory step
made by the Soviets here in
months.
The Soviet Union is ready to
accept a direct communication
between governments," Tsarapkin
said.
His mention of "telegraph or
teletype" was in line with U.S.
State Department thinking. A di
rect line telephone between Ken
nedy and Khrushchev was ruled
out because of the translation
problem, possibilities of misundcr
standing in a tension-filled direct
conversation, and other technical
problems.
The Soviet move came just after
a cable from East Germany of
fering to sign a disarmament
agreement with West Germany
which il said would "materially
contribute" to the cause of world
disarmament.
Neither East nor West Germany
is a mcmlicr of the conference.
Furthermore, the West does not
recognize the East German gov

any such East-West German dis
armament arrangement could only
benefit the Communists. East Gcr

Rate Drops
Last Month
WASHINGTON UP1 - Labor
Department officials were heart
ened today by a sharp drop in
the nation's unemployment rale
last month, but they warned that
the jobless problem remains se
rious. The department reported Thurs
day that the unemployment rate
dropped in March from 6.1 per
cent of the labor force to 5.6 per
cent. It was the biggest monthly
decline in more than four years,
The jobless total went down
from 4.9 million in February to
4.5 million in March. The number
of jobholders in the nation rose
800.000 to 67.1 million during the
month.
Labor Secretary Willard Wirtz
said the drop in the number of
jobless merely put unemployment
figures back where they were be
fore the January and February
drops.
But department expert Harold
Goldstein said he found the trend
"particularly heartening" be
cause nearly all of the March de
cline in unemployment was

time jobs.
Wirtz said the report was

Playgoers commented particu-
larly on the elaborate pageantry
of the production, tins toe lapping
melodies, and the varied dance
numlicrs. The cancan line was
an immediate favorite, with the
high stepping girls in their bright
ly milled costumes providing a
very colorful note. The original
and authentic Indian dance num
ber and the loggers' chorus per
formance of "Wet Me Down in
Oregon" brought audience ap
plause.
