"N AIL SALES FINAL PL 3-7460 Flu Death Rale Is Showing Decrease By UNITED PRESS Although the number of flu cases across the country continued to climb, the death toll from influenza and its complications showed signs of tapering off. The United . Press counted ai total of 478 flu-caused deaths since this summer when Asian flu appeared. That was an increase of about 30 fatalities since Monday. New York State had the highest toll with 126 deaths, followed by Pennsylvania with 84, Michigan 38 and California 34. Elsewhere, Ohio State had 28 deaths, Illinois and Louisiana 21 each, Wisconsin 18, Iowa 16, Wash ington 15, Utah 11, Colorado 10, Hawaii 9. Indiana and Kentucky 8 each, Connecticut 7, Tennessee and Oklahoma 5 each) New Jersey and Oregon 3 each, Minnesota and Nebraska 2 each, and Arizona Maine, Missouri and the District of Columbia, 1 each. Federal health authorities estimated there have been about 3,500,000 persons struck with flu in the nation. In Chicago, which has escaped a major flu outbreak, some physicians reported supplies of Asian I flu vaccine were going begging. "Apparently many persons are being lulled into security," a medical spokesman said, "and not wanting the vaccine because the disease here has remained comparatively mild." The spokesman warned the city still may get a major flu outbreak.

NAACP Officials Facing City Arrest LITTLE ROCK. Ark. (UP) Police have been instructed by the City Council to start arresting officers of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People today for failure to bare the organization's records. Thursday night was the deadline for compliance with a new city ordinance requiring "certain organizations" to give financial and membership information to the city. A suit testing the constitutionality of the ordinance, proposed by Attorney General Bruce Bennett, has been filed in federal court by the NAACP Bennett said the city would use the ordinance to determine if the NAACP and other similar groups are subject to city franchise and privilege tax. City Attorney O. D. Lonqstreth also pointed out that under the to $250 per day for every day mmr tX - 'fir ' j- l The Corvallis Art Guild invites the public to an 'exhibition of local painters next week in the Women's Club building.

Homecoming Fever, Not Halloween Top Activity of Night Continued from page 1) m the Eugene highway near Mill er s Food Center. Several disturbances near fraternity houses were reported by local residents last night, and at least one was apparently an attempt to start a "panty raid." However, the disturbances, stemming from Homecoming weekend fever among enthusiastic college students, were quelled without further incident. Not connected with either Homecoming or Halloween was the reported theft of money, radio equipment, and textbooks from Wea-t hoi ford hall on the OSC campus some time during the last two weeks.' Two student residents of the jdorm told police the money, in I denominations of $1, $5. and $10 bills, was taken from the rooms ,uf five victims in the dorm, and the radio equipment and textbooks, valued at $400 to $450, were taken from the basement.

The following is an interesting comment on selections made by local agencies contracting the company; "Iq planning for the present tour, the management polled the local bookers and sponsors, asking them their preference as to operas f Ver di's "La Traviata" and "Rigolet- tb"; Bizet's "Carmen," and Massenet's "Manon" were offered), and whether they wanted the production in English or the original language. The results were sur-. prising, in a way. "Carmen" was, by far, the opera most preferred. "La Traviata" was a close second, "Rigoletto" third, and "Man-on" was selected by only a few. As far as language was concerned, the original language 'French or Italian) was requested. Only a handful of the more than 500 local, bookers and sponsors polled, asked that the opera be in English." , "La Traviata" will be performed in Corvallis, with Josephine Guido, Eleanor Wold, Charles Curtis, Arthur Budney and Merle Hofstad in the leading roles.
