O Oregon Baptists Repudiate MAKES COUP LONG BALLOT WAITS VOTERS IN PRIMARIES Social Action Communistic ESCAPED GONSf CARRY THREE AS HOSTAGE SCHUSCHNIGG NEW DICTATOR Texas Officers Warned Desperadoes Have Entereed State FEAR MORE DEATHS Posses Expect Convicts Will Kill Guards and Farmer Oklahoma City, May 14. The state crime bureau was informed this afternoon that officers were close on the trail of several of eight fugitive Oklahoma convicts ut Denison, Tex. One carload of the fugitives was reported to have passed through Denison. Six men were suid to have been in the car. Col. Charles Daley, state crime bureau chief, telephoned Dallas, Tex., police to warn them. Hold Three Hostages McAlester, Okla., May 14. Eight desperate fugitives from the state penitentiary here fled through the rugged and sparsely settled wilds of southeastern Oklahoma today. They carried three hostages as protection against the pursuit of 200 officers and possemen. Two of the kidnap victims in the bloody break from the penitentiary, Guards Tuck Cope and Victor Conn, were wounded. Grave concern that they and the third prisoner of the felons, burn Doak, would meet the same Higher Body's Program as Oregon's Baptists in their stale Convention here today repudiated recommendations of the commis sion on social action of the North ern Baptist convention, and branded them as communistic and irreligious in a resolution passed by an overwhelming vote. Passage followed a spirited de bate in which Dr. W. E. Henry of McMinnville and Dr. Albert G. Johnson, pastor of the Hinson Memorial church of Portland, father of the resolution led the opposing factions. Attention of the convention con centrated on this resolution, and charges made at Tuesday's session of the Oregon council of Baptist men branding resolutions of the March 1 youth conference on tne Linfield campus as communistic failed to appear. f The resolution passed today characterized the social action commission recommendations as subversive to the basis business of the church in the world, name ly, its evangelization by the proclamation of the atoning and reconciling death of Jesus Christ," and as a departure from the "evangel istic pattern of the great commission of Matthew 28." Furthermore, the resolution charges, the social action commission question is "threatening the efficiency and unity of the churches by creating growing controversy and misunderstanding on matters which involve decided political issues," and complained against inclusion of materials in Baptist publications which can be cited by radical groups as evidence that trie church is subscribing to their principles. The resolution also charges that many organizations and contributors responsible for this literature are listed in the "Red Network," a directory of radicals. Rnecifieallv. the resolution con cludes: "Be it resolved that the Oregon Baptist State Convention announce to the world us .repudiation of the policies and principles of the social action commission of the Northern. Baptist Conv and be it further resolved that we call the ministers of the Noithernl Ranlist convention territory to renewed and vigorous emphasis upon the great commission as entrusted to us by Christ and embod-1 ied in the 28th chapter of Mnf 1 hfw.

"Little or no progress" toward settlement of the strike-lockout of 6000 men in 25 logging camps of the Columbia river area, was reported today by C. H. Gram, state labor commissioner, after a two-hour "star chamber" session with operators and unionists. "The less said about it the better right now," Gram said as he adjourned the conference until 3 p. m. Two score of the camps were ordered shut down by the Columbia Basin - Loggers association when the Sawmill and Timber Workers union district council refused to send its members back to work in five Tillamook burn camps pending arbitration. Reports and rumors leaking out from the session Gram held this morning said that the union spent the morning presenting its side of the trouble. One employer, asked as he emerged from the meeting as to the prospects of settlement of the up a number of Portland sawmills difficulties which threaten to tie because of luck of logs, suid: "Come back in 30 days. We may have gotten some place by then." 8 POINT POWER SETUP URGED Olympia, May 14.

Harrison of the North Brownsville neighborhood is an Albany business visitor for the day. From the Headlines By Deacon Richmond '1500 Rotarians Gather at Vancouver, B.C."

More showers were forecast for tonight and Friday with thunderstorms over the mountains. The western part of the state was soaked by copious rains late Wednesday, the highest measured precipitation being at Mehama which had 1.38 inches. Albany saw inches recorded. Fort-land received an even inch, Eugene .96, Salem ,!)0, Roseburg .68, North Bend .32. Medford .08. There was considerable light ning in Portland and up the valley accompanied in some places with gale-like gusts. .Several trees and poles were felled in Portland, tying up considerable traffic. At Creswell in Lane county a small cloudburst flooded streets and a high wind loosened roofs an downed a number of poles across the Southern Pacific tracks, necessitating the flagging down of the Shasta Limited. The Klamath basin had its sec ond day of a distressing dust storm. BORAH POISED TO BOLT PARTY Washington, Mav 14. Sen. Wil liam E. Borah had his foot in the air today toward the first step of a walk out on his party. The Borah bolt became at least a possibility as tabulation of West Virginia and Ohio presidential pri mary returns piled up a big regular republican victory. Borah won five or six of 52 re publican nationnl convention delegates in Ohio. His slate of dele-gates-at-large was swamped. Rob ert A. Tuft, blessed by an informal coalition of other republican aspir ants, got the rest of the delegation. It was Borah against the field in Ohio with Taft as .the "favorite son''"' candidate representing all anti-Borah factions. After one ballot the Taft delegates may go where they will and according to their leaders' judgment. Taft entered a full slate of 52 delegates. Borah was shy 17 candidates. Originally his managers intended to enter only candidates for dclegate- al-lurge. .If they had maintained that strategy Tuesdays' reverse would have been a more striking disaster. As returns rolled In Borah struck at the republican leadership in language forecasting a bolt if the regulars control the conventions. Borah practically conceded that the parly leaders he has been fighting will dominute lhe Cleveland meeting and select the GOP candidate. Although Gov. Alf M. Laridon has counted Ohio in his political parade, the primary returns showed the state director of Frank Knox's presidential campaign leading the list of successful Taft delegates-at-large. Borah's next real contest is scheduled for New Jersey May 19, where the regular republican organization backing Landon promises to crush the Borah boom once and for all. Fir Lumber Make Up Despite Strike Atlantic City, N. J., May 14. R. A. Dailey, Seattle, manager of the National-American Wholesale Lumber association, reported today at the group's 44th annual meeting that in spite of the 1935 strike in the lumber industry sawmill production of Douglas fir in Washington and Oregon showed a substantial increase over that of 1934. Dailey said the region produced 4.9 billion feet of lumber compared with 4.3 billion feet in 1D34 and that the average return to mills was $17.28 per thousand feet of lumber. Wages have been increased and there is serious labor trouble expected in 1936, he said. AUNT HET BY ROBERT QUILLEN Jt Ml hurt because V.mi'4 take no interest in tu cvK t it's bis own fault.

Troops Watchful The coupe was a smashing blow at Mussolini. Former Finance Minister Josef Kollmnnn, leader of the left wing of the SchuschniBE-Reither Chris tian Socialists, told the United Press Starhemberg's troops would be disarmed within a few weeks. "We do not expect active oppo sition, he said. . But soldiers and police through out the country took exceptional measures to insure peace. It was announced.
