Steps were being taken to extra dite linn to Oregon, and mere was a possibility he would be returned today. A first degree murder indictment awaits him in Portland. The FBI arrested him on a federal fugitive warrant. Agents were tipped to Marquette's whereabouts by Harvey Allen and Clark R. Powell, partners in Santa Maria construction and real estate.

Powell had picked up Marquette as a hitchhiker and hired him to do odd jobs. Powell and Allen were in the Merchant's Credit office Thursday when the manager found Marquette's picture in an FBI bulletin. He handed the bulletin to Allen and said jokingly, "Here's YOUR picture."

Sunny skies and high temperatures over most of the country helped increase the number of motorists inching onto the high ways for leisure time at the sea shore, beach or cooler woodlands. Beaches were crammed with bathers. The National Safety Council ex pected most of the nation's 74 million vehicles would contribute to the estimated 10 billion miles that would be logged before ihe 102-hour holiday ends.

Heavy Park Use According to Pomerlo, residents of the surrounding area already are giving the park heavy use despite the lack of facilities.

Collins has been park superintendent since 1951 when the department was a one-man operation. Five full-time men are now involved in the department's work. New Post Office Serves Scottsburg See Picture Page Two Scottsburg area residents today began using postal facilities located in a new fourth-class post office.

According to U.S. Postmaster Margaret Thomas, the move to establish a new post office site was made when in her opinion working space and conditions were not adequate. Formerly, the post office was lo cated in Hedden Store located on Highway 38 in Scottsburg. The new office is on Highway 38 and Siuslaw St. Mrs.

Emma Hedden recently re tired as postmaster. Mrs. Thomas received her ap pointment as acting postmaster April 30. A resident of Scottsburg for the last 19 years, she was born in Norfolk, Va. She was married to John Thomas in 1939 when he was a Navy chief petty office.

At Yoncalla, the community is going all out to provide two days of fun and spectator enjoyment. It's the annual Yoncalla Saddle Club Rodeo event around which the community celebration will be built. The rodeo events are scheduled Monday and Tuesday at 1 p.m.

But a lot of action is sandwiched around these two highlight affairs. Rodeo dances are slated nightly Sunday, Monday and Tuesday at the open air dance pavilion. On Monday and Tuesday mornings at 6, rodeo breakfasts will be served by the Yoncalla Lions. The big parade is slated at 10 a.m. Tuesday.

In Roseburg, it will be fireworks. The Roseburg Moose Lodge will set off $1,000 worth of fireworks at the Douglas County Fairgrounds as darkness falls Tuesday night. The fireworks will be preceded by a music and comedy show, start-ing an hour before dark. The show and fireworks are free. I I I mine but he works for us." Then they called the FBI.

Powell said the agents called Marquette out of the shop and shook hnn down immediately. Marquette readily admitted his identity. At Santa Barbara, he refused to answer questions about the bru tal murder of Mrs. Joan Caudle, 24, early in June. His reply was, "I'd belter not say." A Portland newsman who ac companied Multnomah County and Portland Police Bureau de tectives to Santa Barbara said he had learned there is a possibility Marquette might be willing to waive extradition on the murder charge.

This would clear the way for his immediate return to Fort-land on the murder charge rather than on the federal fugitive warrant. The Santa Barbara district attorney informed Charles Hurvey Multnomah County deputy district attorney, Marquette had indicated some desire to waive the extra dition hearing, the reporter said.

"I was scared and shook up and couldn't work. I ran scared," he said. Marquette said he was hazv about what happened next, but neueveu ne took a bus from Portland to Los Angeles, then another to San Diego and still another to Tijuana. He said he spent a week in Mexico then returned to the United States, giving his name at the border. "Every time I saw a police car, wanted to crawl in a hole.

I didn't tell anyone what I had done," he said. He hitch-hiked north to Santa Maria June 14, where he finally was arresiea rriciay.

self in the wake of Castro's rejection of its final offer of 500 light tractors, the committee said through Hooker that: "By thus changing the course of the negotiations by injecting the concept of indemnity, Dr. Castro sought to give the impression that the humanitarian intent of private citizens was proof of guilt. "This made acceptance of Dr. Castro's terms incompatible with our national honor and our role as private citizens," Hooker told the prisoners. The members of the committee were Airs.

State police met the governor at the Portland airport with the extradition papers. After Hatfield signed them, they were taken to Salem for Secretary of State Howell AppUng Jr. to sign. Then they were to go to California authorities. The governor and his party arrived at the Portland airport at 4 a.m., six hours late.

The plane had been delayed in Honolulu by radio trouble. Hatfield said he will discuss the daylight saving time problem with Sen. President Harry Boivin soon. Boivin Friday proposed a spec- cial session of Uie legislature to BUt. daylight time up iora.

statewide vole next May. Hatfield earlier said he opposed a special session, to take up the DST problem, but this time he said the plan is "worthy of con-sideraUon, providing there is the same response from House leadership." Boivin said a majority of the Senate is ready to meet. House Speaker Robert Duncan, D-Medford, said however that he is not in favor of an immediate session. He said he might favor one later. It would accomplish nothing to have it immediately," he said.

"There is plenty of time between now and May. I think we should wait and see what happens the rest of the summer.

Eight Hundred Men Battle Huge Blaze WENATCIIEE (AP) Eight hundred men summoned to the battle line from three states blocked the frontal attack of a grass and forest blaze Saturday morning and reported full control was only a few hours away. Crews had bulldozed an arc of bare earth around the head of the fire, which was eating into a stand of pine in the Wcnatchce National Forest. Nearly 4,000 acres were blackened. The fire started Friday in grass near the Rocky Reach dam and ran up Tenas George Canyon to Uie timbered ridges.

Steep, rocky terrain hampered the fighters, steadily throughout the day. The Forest Service air lifted men from Idaho, Oregon and oth Washington forests. A dozen rugged army trucks and 28 men eontpm rlronnerl chpmir-alK on the blaze or aided in Uie air lift. Five tractors ripped earth and trees 'to form fire lines. spokesman for me rebel FLN called from Tunis headquarters for a demonstration July 5 against proposed French partition of Algeria.

Presumably emotional elements among the Moslems did not want to wait and took to the streets early today in the steaming summer heat. French President Charles de Gaulle, on a grass-roots tour of Lorraine, has told crowds that unless a suitable settlement of the six-year-old Algerian war could be reached, the French would divide the country between Moslems and the one million members of the European community. This would mean that the Euro peansprotected by French mil itary forces would stay in the big coastal cities while the nine million Moslems would be left in Uie arid interior, With the temporary breakdown of the French-rebel peace talks at Evian-Les-Bains, France, and the threat of partition over them, Al- geria's Moslems have become in creasingly edgy. Apparently today's sudden erup tion of shouting Moslems was the blow-off many feared would occur. Sutherlin Sets Recreation Vote Douglas County's only recrea tion district has scheduled a budget and bond election July 18 with the controversial swimming pool as the center of attention.

The Sutherlin Valley Park and Recreation District Board of Directors will ask people of the district to approve $65,000 for construction of the pool. Board members said they would spread the issue over a number of years to make the tax burden as equitable as possible. Olympic-Sized Pool The plans call for an Olympic-sized pool measuring 40-by-80 feet. Cost of operation is estimated at $5,000. The other issue up for a vote is the fiscal year budget, it calls for raising $3,200 to cover operation of the district and planning of the swimming pool.

The district board ran into its first big snag when it proposed the establishment of the pool. Some people in the district indicated at a general meeting they thought the cost was too high and they didn't know a pool was to be built when they approved formation of the district. Others said the pool was to be located too far from their area. It was proposed the pool be located in Sutherlin, but several parts of the district are some miles away! from Sutherlin itself. Said Threat reports that independent firms of the area are greatly concerned and are seeking a solution.

While inland mills have not yet been greatly affected. Sohn reports, there is evidence that Japanese agents recently bid on some sales in the Cottage Grove area. Furthermore. Japanese are expected to authorize their agents to begin more extensive bidding on inland sales soon to sausfy their huge timber requirements. James nitty, president of Al i ALGIERS (AP) French forces In Algiers and nearby Blicia opened fire today on Moslem mobs attacking them with stones and clubs.

Police said one rioter was killed and scores hurt. The Moslems took to the streets by the hundreds, obeying a strike rail from the nationalist rebel I'LN and savage clashes broke out with police and troops. Fifteen members of the antiriot forces were iniured. Shortly after noon, however, the government said the situation was in hand. Police and soldiers first fired into the air to try to halt the Moslems, who advanced on them shouting rebel slogans and waving green and white rebel flags.

Then, as the rioters hurled stones and charged with clubs, the French opened fire. The Moslems' rage was directed at French President Charles de Gaulle's proposal to partition the country if a negotiated settlement of the Algerian rebellion is not reached. Bold young Moslems hoisted a rebel flag atop a building in a working-class district and, for a while, a mob blocked off a police station. The high pitched "yu-yu-yu" cry of Moslem women shrilled in the quarter. For centuries, Moslem women have urged their men on to war with the high, weird call.

Swinging clubs, police rushed groups of Moslems in Algiers where defiant youths shouted the slogans of the rebellion against French rule. Authorities reported that the port city of Oran to the west, was the scene of a Moslem strike but there were no reports of violence. Friday night Mohammed Yazid, 'Fourth' Traffic Accident Record Spotess So Far In the first 18 hours of the Fourth of July holiday which spans four days this year-Douglas County has a spotless record for traffic safety, police reports indicate. The Oregon State Police report no traffic accidents of any type since 6 p.m. Friday to noon today.

Maximum patrol is being maintained by the state police in an effort to wipe out the memory of Fourth of July, 1960, in which six people lost their lives in traffic accidents in Douglas County. All state police cars are moving about the highway with headlights on at all times to remind drivers to drive with caution.

(AP)Fidel Castro has been served notice that it is incompatible with Uie national interest of the United States to pay him an indemnity fnr damages caused by the April 17 invasion of Cuba. Castro's insistance on reparations dashed all hopes of a negotiated release of 1,197 invasion prisoners.

John Hooker executive secretary of the disbanded Tractors for Freedom Committee, told 10 of Castro's prisoners here that "in the name of honor the committee feels it cannot send Dr. Castro tractors, money or credits for indemnity. Not $28 million or $28" The Cuban prime minister offered on May 17 to exchange Uie prisoners for 500 heavy bulldozers. Later he said he would accept lighter tractors as an indemnity five months of 1900 to 13.1 million from January through May, 1961.
