Action of the Oregon Townsend Old Age pension headquarters in endorsing a slate of congressional candidates came without authorization from national headquarters.

Smith (above) of Portland. Ore., startled his inquisitors by relating how he had shared a house in suburban Washington last summer with six members of Congress and how some 40 others were guests there. Although no Linn county offices are going begging for aspirants, two are going by default to incumbents unless contests develop between now and the expiration for time of filing, six days hence, or unless independent candidates appear after the primary. Every office is now contested save two, assessor and recorder. As the filing time limit neared today two new candidates for county office appeared. They are D. M. Rohrbough, who filed as candidate in the republican .primaries for the office of county judge, and Ronald L. Gilson, Lebanon, also a republican, who would be county treasurer. Rohrbough will append to his name on the ballot the statement "Charter Member of Albany Townsend club. Promise honest, efficient service, strict e-onomy." Gilson is outstanding among the candidates of both parties in that he will enter the primary contest without any sloaan and tied by no promises. After his name on the primary ballot will be nothina at all. In this Gilson is alone, save for Ben Clelen. democratic candidate for re-election as constable for the Albany justice of the peace district. Of the 22 candidates who have thus far filed 12 indicate by their slogans that they are bidding for Townsend votes. The other ten make no reference in their ballot statements to the Townsend question. Following are the democratic candidates who have filed to date: For county judge, R. C. Burk-hart, Lebanon: for county commissioner, G. W. Large. Brownsville: Francis Kizer, Harrisburg and Harry W. Coolcy, Albany; for sheriff. Jess Moss, Lebanon, and Herbert Shelton. Scio; for treasurer, Grover C. Nance. Albany; for coroner, N. C. Lowe. Lebanon: and for surveyor, G. E. Whitcomb. Lebanon, and Glenn Peck. Albany. Of these Large. Coolcy. Moss Nance and Peck indicate by their slogans that they are Townsend ites. County Judge Barrett ha also so indicated on his cards, but as yet he has not filed for office. Republican candidates to date are: For County Judge; D. M. Rohrbough nd W. S. Risley; for county commissioner, Arch Ray, Scio and E. H. Holloway, Albany; for sheriff, E. C. McClain, Lebanon and Marion Arnold, Albany; for county clerk. Clarence Ingram and R. M. Russell, both of Albany; for assessor. W. C. Templeton; for recorder, Stella Hoover; for coroner, E. C. Fisher and for treasurer, Ronald Gilson. Of these, Rohrbough and Risley are both Townsendiles. as are Ray and Holloway. Likewise Arnold, Ingram and Templeton half! appended Townsend allusions their names. 7 Several other prospective candidates were reported withholding their lyings until later in the week.

Bor-, ah, of Idaho. "Dr. Townsend emphatically denies that he made ai' such pledge," his headquarters here announced in a statement. He admitted he had changed his registration from democrat to republican but described this act as designed to "offset the unfair tactics of the Democratic organization in southern California that is constantly calling on the republican voters to change their registration to democratic." Townsend's own personal preference was not specified in the statement. An interviewer who quoted him yesterday that he and his organization would support the Idaho Republican candidate insisted he had a signed statement from Townsend, announcing his espousal of Borah's cause. By Lyle C. Wilson llnllrd Prma Staff Corrripnndrni Washington, March 23. Dr. Francis E. Townsend, who invented the $200-a-Month old age pension plan, is in the papers today with new presidential strategy, presumably thereby cancelling various political maneuvers and projects previously endorsed by I him. I The latest plan is for the doctor and his old age pension clubs to support Sen. William E. Borah for president against Mr. Roosevelt I and the republican field. 1 Dr. Townsend's pledge to Borah i was revealed last night in Long Beach, Calif. If the doctor doesn't change his mind, if he can deliv er his organization and, if Borah accepts Townsend's aid in good spirit, the Long Beach statement may prove to have great political I importance. But Townsend's past ! performance has been politically erratic. By this time next week I ALL CCC CAMPS TO Bat RETAINED IY COMPROMISE Washington, March 23. A compromise under which all civilian conservation corps camps would be ' kept open for the net fiscal year ,was disclosed today in an effort to end controversy over administration plans to abandon more than 500 camps throughout the nation. The compromise would keep open all 2.158 camps with enlistment of 163 or over instead of cutting the number down to 1,456 by July as scheduled. It would also provide for 350,000 personnel instead of the 300,000 limit proposed- Tin. ' peaceful settlement was hRilcd by Speaker Joseph W. Byrns as cutting off threats of a rcrious parliamentary uprising against the executive urdcr which would have slashed the camps.

In other New England states and in Pennsylvania, health officers rushed similar precautions, but without the com pulsion that prevailed in Connecticut. In all the more seriously 'affected areas military rule prevailed.

County Clerk Russell said that licenses issued to 2,097 dogs have brought $2,547 to the county. Last year the total of licenses was 63 greater, or 2160, but the cash return was but $2,186, or $316 loss than the 1936 total. Furthermore there will be still more dogs licensed in Linn county during the rat of the year, the county clerk aaid. The balance in favor of 1936 returns in cash attributable to the fact that all dogs were taxed $1 each last year while this year owners of females and spayed females were assessed $2 for each dog. .
