Democrats drive to .February and March was sidetracked by sending the, resolution to the executive committee for consideration along witlvother financial problems. Unanimous Ballot r .

He said he was interested in building, a strong state organization, with his yes on what he termed a "very crucial year" in 1960. "My only interest is a strong, .liberal party in. Oregon," Straub said. "We should force the Republicans to stand up and say what side of the fence they are on." He was our duty as Democrats to talk very straight to the voters." :: . Straub was nominated by; fellow 'senator Dan Dimmick who is .also Douglas County Central Committee chairman. He said Straub .could bring Jthe party together and "of fered a new face" in the party's state leadership. - Victor Mature Takes Bride RANCHO . SANTA FE, Calif.
