Oregon Is First State to Toss Out Civil Defense SALEM, Ore. (DPI) - Oregon, the first state to turn its back on civil defense, closes down its 18-member organization today. A coordinating staff attached to the governor's office takes over Monday. The cutback, bitterly scored by national civil defense Director S. L. Pittman and Gov. Mark Hatfield, was ordered by the state legislature which called civil defense a "do nothing" agency and slashed its operating funds. While the legislature was in session, Hatfield waged what he termed a "bare knuckle'* fight to save the agency but was unable to muster public support. The legislature acted in defiance of Pittman's threat to cut off federal civil defense matching funds. Official notice of the withdrawal of federal funds was received here Thursday.

C, a hornet's nest because the city's citizens were so active in anti-British activities. Today's slogan-nickname of "hornet's nest continues to typify activities of the community.
