LONG BALLOT DUE IN OREGON (Continued from 1'agc One) G. Nelson, Salem, both Townseml-ites. On the democratic ballot, John A. Jeffrey, Portland, and Will's Mahoney, Klamath Falls, both Townsendites, are in the race. Nelson and Jeffrey have received Townsend endorsements. Indicative of an expected republican return to power, 133 republican candidates have filed us against 88 democrats and 14 nonpartisans. Already it , is openly predicted that Oregon normally a republican stale with republicans still holding a majority of voters' gtstrations, will swing back into that column on many offices. The democrats are expected, for instance, to lose control cf the state house of representatives which they held last year for the first time in more than 60. mi PATTERN 269G When this jaunty young froc'; goes dashing by, it needs no prophet to tell spring's' in the air- It may be yours, too, this run-about and sports frock that just can't wait for warmer weather, for it will tempt you with its promise of easy making.

FINGERPRINTING TO BE GENERAL (Continued from Vagts One) police officials all over the world. Fingerprinting was first employed by the Chinese, Mr. Murray said, but they made only limited use of it, chiefly in connection with sealing of documents, for which thumb prints were used, and in preserving identities of foundlings, sheerly, however, through memory. Taking a cue from the Chinese, a British jurist in India adopted the thumb print method of marking documents merely to impress the illiterate natives with their significance, but noticed that no two thumb prints were identical. He called attention of local police to the fact, and thereupon a fingerprint system was devised, Scotland Yard adopted it, then it was employed by New York police, and now it has supplanted the Ber-tillon system ir the United States, Mr. Murray said. The first national fingerprint clearing house was established at Leavenworth prison, but in 1925 Washington, D. C became the central fingerprint bureau. There the duplicate prints of every person who has been thus recorded are kept, Mr. Murray related, and whenever a query is received the original of any print on record can be identified in from 10 minutes to half an hour. Fingerprint records are of value not only in criminal investigations, the expert pointed out, but are now being used in preventing insurance frauds, identifying accident victims, and in safeguarding children against kidnapings. At the newly established civil fingerprint bureau at Washington the prints of more than 300 voluntarily submitted prints are arriving daily for recording against the time when their owners may wish to prove their identities. Prospective pension laws have stimulated activity along this line, Mr. Murray said. At the Oregon state penitentiary more than 13,800 photographs and nearly as many fingerprint records are on file, the identification officer said. At Washington more than 5,000,000 fingerprints, including those of all World war veterans, are available, he added. It is significant, Mr. Murray said, that of all prisoners whose fingerprints are now taken, 40 per cent have been previously arrested. The fingerprint is the most accurate and at the same lime the simplest means of identification yet devised, Mr. Murray concluded. He devoted several minutes following the meeting to fingerprinting willing Rotarians, utter having demonstrated the method of taking and classifying prints.

When Vernon Cobb, 17, Cottage Grove, was picked up here late Thursday by Sheriff Shel-ton as a run-away from the Fair-view home for the feeble minded he was. questioned in regard to the Goodwin burglary and the Hood Grocery job. He admitted readily complicity with both affairs, but his eagerness to shoulder blame aroused suspicion. Yesterday a comparison of fingerprints eliminated Cobb from tiie Hood Grocery burglary and cast doubt upon his connection with the Goodwin entry. Nevertheless his answers to questions, though incoherent and rambling, revealed some knowledge that is still puzzling the police. He was returned to the Fairview home last night. Police questioning of the Rotts brothers drew from them an admission that they had secured some popcorn and bad attempted first to pop it over the flames of SPEAKS HERE Wash., who is coiwocting a series of services at the Interdenomina-Uuiiiil chuiUi in Albany, - k j eWns, I ' But it has two short-comings: The public likes to see in black and white the things you stand for, and the public is also quick to forget, even if you can meet and talk to every" voter. ; " "; But the Democrat-Herald offers yon an economical means' of talking to all of the voters all of the time."

Six children were born in Missouri and with the lure of the west still in his memory and after crop failures with its at-1 tending hard times, Mr. Meyer sold out in Missouri and moved with his family to Oregon, first to Roseburg in the fall of 1888 and in the spring of 1889 to Albany. After spending many days looking for a desirable place to build a home, he decided on a tract of land 10 miles cast of Albany near the Santinm river where John Meyer he built his first western home and lived on the orginal piece of land continously for 47 years. Three more children were born in Oregon, increasing the number in his family to six sons and three daughters, all of which survive and were present when the end came. Mr. Meyer interested himself in his family and his large number of friends and in community affairs. He was active in school matters, local activities and those affecting his county, state and country. He early discovered the possibilities of the Willamette valley and led his community in production of small fruits and berries. Dairying was his holjby and he soon built up a herd of blooded Jerseys which resulted in his being the first shipper of cream from his community, and incidently the owner of the first cream separator in his neighborhood. Soon after settling on his farm he found the need of better mail and freight service and arranged with the Southern Pacific Co. to establish a stution opposite his home and trains operating between Woodburn and Springfield made that TKiint a regular stop. He established a postoftice, naming the station Crabtrce from the name of the pioneer family of Fletcher Crabtrce whosettled nearby in the middle orthe Iftth century, lie operated the poilollitc and I f vj t, .1 "wv CASH IN ADVANCE ONLY : r. 7 V Political advertisements are cash in advance only.
