Of the 181 cases passed upon by the committee, all but three were listed as eligible for old age assistance. Of the three one was disallowed because of refusal to assign property to the county and in two cases it was found that recently changed circumstances have provided the persons involv ed with sufficient . incomes for family expenses and rendered further assistance unnecessary. Thus a total of 178 persons were declared eligible for assistance, out of a total of 239 who had been receiving county pensions. Of the remainder, the committee records show, six persons arc believed eligible for assistance now available to the blind; four have died, five did not wish to reapply for assistance, seven have rnoved from the county, six have moved to addresses not now known and 3 arc slated for further investigation. Meanwhile new applications have been placed on file as they have arrived at the Linn county relief office, and investigation of these petitions' will start immediately, Miss Doolittle said today. It will not be necessary for applicants to revist the relief office, Miss Doolittle said, for the investigators will visit each applicant in his or her home. The relief committee has been meeting each week this month and social workers have been working - overtime investigating assistance applications and preparing their reports. The committee disposed of 1 17 applications at its meeting this week.

HOUSE SAKS DEFICIT 6 Treasury Chief Blames Most of Increase Upon Bonus 1937 TO SEE DROP Appeals ' Senate Finance Committee to OK Tax Bill Washington. April 30. Secretary of the Treasury Henry Mor-genthau, Jr.. today estimated the 1936 fiscal year deficit would hit an all-time peace-time record high of $5,966,000,000. . Morgenthau, appealing tr. the senate finance committee for enactment of President Roosevelt's full tax program, revealed that bonus payments and other developments since presentation of President Roosevelt's budget message in January had shot the estimated deficit up from $3,234,507,-392 to only a few million dollars short of $6,000,000,000. 1937 Drop Predicted At the same time, he estimated the 1937 deficit would drop to about $2,675,000,000. The president in his budget message estimated the 1937 deficit at about' $1,098,-000.000 without taking account of relief expenditures. Morgenthau attributed the increase almost entirely to bonus rfayments which he predicted would tap treasury resources for about $2,237,000,000. Had it not been for this factor, he said, a steadily reduced deficit might have been expected. War Deficits Higher In the war years of 1918 and 1919 the treasury ran in the red more than $9,000,000,000 and $13,-370,000,000, respectively. The largest previous peace time deficit was In 1934 when it amounted to $3,-965.991,685. ' Morgcnthau's ' testimony' rwas supported by that of Internal Revenue Commissioner Guy T. Hel-vering. Both were subject to cross-examination by republican committee members, especially concerning the corporate tax changes recommended by Mr. Roosevelt and incorporated in the bill passed by the house.

The state today introduced evidence against Jack B. Justice, on trial on a charge of the murder of W. Frank Akin, former state investigator, to show he was in Portland when Akin was killed and to attempt to trace the gun with which Akin was killed to Justice.

Gladys Johnson Hart testified that she met Justice in Portland on November 19, 1933, the day before Akin was killed, and again on November 20, the day he was killed. Frank C. McCarthy, Seattle, said he gave the gun in question or "a" gun, the gun with which Akin was killed has never been found to James Smith, Seattle bootlegger, for two pints of liquor. Smith, who said he was bootlegging in Seattle at the time, said he gave the gun to Peggy Paulos, who had been living with him and his wife, "about the middle of November, 1933."

The rule is very simple, though it's rather hard to plav, you simply have to know the time to throw your flush away: and. working frnn the other side.

ADDiSJBABA Emperor Hopes Italians Move in Without Bloodshed 1 SASA BANEH IS TAKEN Threat of Storms Brings Hope Invaders May Be Halted N Addis Ababa, April 30. Em- peror Haile Selassie ordered tho capital left undefended today. hoping the Italians would. Occupy it without bloodshed. He sent 3,000 of his troops back: from the line of the Italian advance. The government prepared to leave for an unknown destination, leaving the Blata Takalla, a high local official, to remain with tho police until the last moment to preserve order. Heavy storm clouds gathered to the north, and gave slim hope to . the terrified populace that the forces of nature might impede the conquerors. Hot heads talked of gathering men and going out to meet the Italians but most people prayed for rain British Red Cross men, who arrived as an Italian plane swept down over the airport and raked it with machine gun fire, reported the Italians about 60 miles from the capital.

Roy Broadwater, Corvallis, actually did what many a motorist has wished to do. He deliberately wrecked an automobile that had hogged the road, forcing Broadwater into the ditch on one sidu of the road and State Officer Iver Ross off the road on the other. The incident took place yesterday on the west side highway two miles so)th of Corvallis. Broadwater was driving south, accord-ina to the report of Officer Ross, and Ross was going north. At . some distance behind the truck was a passenger car, and behind it another automobile, driven by George Francis Moody, Philomath. According to the officer, Moody passed the car ahead of him, but instead of swinging in behind tho truck to let the officer go by, ha attempted to pass the truck too, A collision was avoided only because the truck and the officer both gave room at the risk ot wrecking their respective vehicles. The officer stopped, turned around and proceeded to take out after Moody. Meanwhile, however, Broadwater had the same idea. He speeded up and overtook Moody. As he did so, right before the officer's eyes, he turned to his right and crowded Moody oft the highway, without himself stopping. Then the officer started after the truck. As he approached, according to the report, Broadwater also attempted to wreck Ross's car, thinking he was dealing again with Moody. '. Officer Ross arrested both Moody and Broadwater and brought them to i justice court here. Each driver was fined $25, and Broadwater agreed to pay for damage to Moody's machine, Broadwater paid his fine without flinching. "I'd do it again," ho told the court.

D-G PAYMENTS Attempt Shift Control of Woods From Interior Dept. Reported ARTICLE CHALLENGED Charges Forests Poorly Cared for Meet With Denial Roseburg, Ore., April 30. County judges and commissioners of Oregon-California hind grant counties met Wednesday to consider a reported attempt to remove administration of the for ests from the department of in terior and deprive the counties of taxes from grants. Guy Cordon, Roseburg attorney who was instrumental in obtaining legislation permitting collection of taxes on the Oregon-California land grant properties forfeited to the government, explain ed the situation. Magazine Article Irks Agitation to supplant administration of forest lands by the department of interior, by some other arrangement not yet advocated publicly, was climaxed by an article written by Ovid Butler and appearing in American Forests magazine recently, Cordon said. The officials authorized Cordon to correspond' with 'the American Forests association and Butler to learn what the association expects to develop in the attack on the present administration of the forests in those counties which include O. & C. lands. Forest Decline Denied Butler asserted in his article that proper care was not being taken of the forest land, that value of the forests was declining rapidly due. to devastation and waste. . Judges and commissioners branded Butler's assertions untrue and decided to meet the "propaganda" with urlieles for the press revealing the true status of land grant properties in Oregon. , No legislation favoring abolition of amendment of the present Stanficld act, which permits state and counties to levy taxes against the government on land grants, will be permitted to pass unchallenged, the group decided.
