"Thii would seem to be a penny' wise and pound loulisn policy lur failure to provide adequate naval defense at the mouth ot the river will not only jeopardize the cities of the area, the great power and highway projects, completed and under construction, but also- makes the Pacific Northwest available as a possible base from which an enemy force could conduct vicious air attacks on the population centers of the mid--west, to say nothing of the California area." The . governor's references to Calilornia also included mention of : the millions of dollars spent on naval developments there while Oregon received nothing.

Lan-don had garnered four lavorable delegates in Twin City congressional district conventions Saturday and was slated to come through with a clear majority. Each of the nine congressional districts elected uninstructed delegates but the preference of most delegates was well established. Two of the three listed for Borah were uncertain.

WILD DOG HUNT ' BY POLICE HAS SUCCESSFUL END Chief of Police Chandler today reported the .apparently success-, ful completion of a wild dog hunt in which he and other members of the police force have been engaged during the last few weeks. Besieged by complaining resid ents, the police investigated the dog situation, along the waterfront, and found that a dozen or .so stray dogs had established themselves under warehouses and other buildings in that district, and with their adopted homes as bases were marauding and otherwise rendering themselves obnoxious about t U.U town. . One woman reported being atf tucked by two of the dogs, who tore her dress. Several of the rcr verted canines were found ono day feasting upon the carcass ot a cat they had slain. Numerous residents complained that t h o beasts were raiding their garbago cans, gardens and porches. At first the police tried to roumt up the dogs, but the strays had become too furtive for ordinary poundmastcr methods. So the officers had to resort to firearms. Several of the dogs were killed and the rest appear to have decamped, Chief Chandler said U day. Whence the dogs came is not definitely known, but investigation revealed that some of them, a t least, had been brought into town for sale at auction houses and, remaining unsold, had been merely abandoned.
