NEWS-REVIEW, ROSE8URG, OREGON FRIDAY, NOVEMBER S, Jobless Benefit Payments Exclude Dock Strikers Despite a slowdown in certain areas because of the shipping tie-up, employment payments for October continued to establish new low marks for the post-war period. The State Unemployment Compensation Commission reports benefits to civilian workers last month were $408,274, a seasonal gain from September but 7S ppr cent below October, 1947. Read-justmen allowances to veterans dropped to $103,958, nearly 15 per cent under the previous month and the lowest since October, 1945. Several offices, mainly In coastal areas, showed an Increase over last fall, largely because of lack of storage space. Coos Bay, where several wood product plants were forced to close, paid $49,941 in benefits and allowances against $11,169 a year ago. Fish canneries' slowdown boosted Astoria's total to $18,331.

Nov. 5 rPI President Truman found the way open today in the Democratic overthrow of GOP Congression al rule to launch a new phase of Hie new deal the "Truman deal" of Xar-reaehing social and economic legislation. Vying with this controversial program in the new, 81st Con-j grcss convening January 3 will j be great international problems ; dealing with the cold war against ' Russian Communism. ! But the big questions from the domestic standpoint are these: Will Mr. Truman ask .Congress a third time to grant him standby power to control prices and wages and ration scarce necessities? Will he ask Congress to increase taxes, to avoid the budzet i deficit that threatens as a re-1 suit of last spring's tax cut and ;stepped-up defense spending? I Minnesota voters defeated Rep. (Harold Knutson, author of the i GOP tax-cutting bill enacted over ; the president's veto after a bitter ; battle. Knutson has been In Congress ' 32 years. i The voters gave Mr. Truman even more numerical power on Capitol Hill than he was bequeathed by Franklin D. Roosevelt. Latest returns indicated this congressional lineup: Senate:54 Democrats; 42 Rc publicans (the 80th Congress makeup is 51 Republicans; 45 Democrats. When FDR died in 1845 the Senate was made up ot 56 Democrats, 38 Republicans and one minor party with one vacancy;. House 260 Democrats, 374 Republicans, 1 American-Labor. tThe GOP in the present Congress has 245 House seats, the Democrats 185 and the American-Labor Party 2. In 1945 the division was Democrats 242, Republicans 190, two minor parties and one vacancy). Senator Homer Ferguson, the Republicans' No. 1 investigator, ft ' 1 ' 5? - tee--'' 5k HARVESTING?

Post-elec tion notes: Gov. Thomas E. Dewey prob ably stirred the emotions of his followers more oeepiy in aeieat than he ever had in victory. He took one of the most crushing upsets In American pottcitsl history with real sportsmanship. In his post-election press conference a 13-minule farewell to his national political aspirations he gave no excuses for his de feat. And he Indulged in no sett-pity. He wore the air of a champion who had given the best of what he had to give and he didn't blame anybody if that hadn't won mm wtiat he wanted. There we're a number of red- eyed members of his staff at the conference, and Dewey, a man who rarely demonstrates persona! emotion, brought tears to their eyes as he thanked them for the efforts made in his behalf. He showed that he does have In some measure a gift ot leadership that some observers have doubted Ihe ability to inspire affection as well as loyalty. Many wilt long remember what he said for his wife, who remained by his side all night as far a second time in four years his aream ol being presldend ebbed. "She has been through this before," he said. "We have won and lost at various times and all fn good fun." Precedent For Third ftc Many staunch friends of Dewey find it hard to believe he will carry out the desire he expressed privately on several occasions during the campaign never to run for public office again were defeated. He is only 48 and few men his age ever had such meteoric political careers. His present term as governor lasls through 3950. Although he Is the only unsuccessful candidate ever renominated by the Republican party, there Is plenty of precedent If he should change his mind and toss his hat in the ring a third time. Norman Thomas has tried six times for the Socialists. Henry Clay was a presidential aspirant in almost every campaign be tween 3824 and 3848 and died tin reconciled to failure at T6. Wil liam Jennings Bryan was the Democratic standard bearer three tim and wait willlrte- trt take the draft again any time. Perhaps it was their example that led Dewey io conclude two strikes were enough. Son First to Ooubt The first member of the Dewey family to express doubt on the election trend was the governor's younger son, John, 13. Early Tuesday night the family posed together for newsreeis in the Hotel Roosevelt. To make the scene more realistic, a newsree! man turned on the radio and grouped the Deweys around it. "Truman is leading by ," the radio blared unexpectedly. John whistled in amazement and exclaimed: "Holy gee, Dad!" De ey smiled and said. "That doesn't mean anything. It doesn't count. Thai's just the South." He wasn't convinced himself until the next morning when two states ot his own Mid-west Illinois and Ohio went against him. by 113 votes, as against 84. votes received oy nts opponent, unc ord Bioe. Elected to the City Council for four-year terms were Jean Cowan, receiving 90 votes, and Wade Crow, 86. Voles lor other candidates included Charles Vian, 6T; Noble Snider, 42, and one wvite-in for Fred Goodwin. George Kremkau was elected city councilman for two years, receiving 121 votes. Only 24 ballots were east for Harry Galar-neau, only other candidate. Clarence Martlndale was reelected city marshal by 138 voles. Mrs. Kitty Jobe was reelected city recorder -treasurer by 131 voles, as against two write-ins for W. Vian. 'Throughways' Status is Given Most Highways PORTLAND, Nov. 4 rF Most Oregon major highways now are "throughways and bus iness encroachment along them has been halted. The State Highway Commis sion made the designation yester day, but exempt lrom the restriction are those areas where ifl or more business establishments per mile are already in operation. Among the many highways designated by the commission are fat-tltc titj-tways tast and' West, Columbia River Highway, ! Old Oregon Trail, Central Ore-! gon Highway, The Vaiies-Cailior-1 nla Highway, Oregon Coast Highway, Santiam Highway and numerous others. As a result, new roadside businesses will be unable to use the main highways as direct access roads. The commission's action was unanimous, following recommendation by Highway Engineer R. H. Baldork and Commsision Attorney J. H. Devers. This was one of several actions based on long-range planning. Options are to be taken looking toward widening S. W. Canyon road, west out of Portland, to six lanes although no work may be done on the route for oerhaos 10 years. Options also were ordered j taken on property along the! route of the proposed Sullivan's j Gulch highway, the new route i into Portland from the east which may be built in two or j three years. The commission rejected a Klatrath Falls request for early construction ot a bv-ra thrmte-h that city. The slate has a right-of-way for a by-pass but does not f plan consiraoion now. ine uaxnngp uity Jarn will be expanded through a 1ran made bv the commission and j Pope & Talbot.
