The man, CLarence Arthur Goodenough, had been charged wflh the second degree murder of his wife, Beverly, 26.

The shooting took place May 7. Friday Goodenough waived the right to investigation and indictment by the grand Jury signing the waiver in open court before Judge Williams. Goodenough, the gray-haired father of eight chlldren, sat solemnly in court with his head bowed as the charges against him were read. The courtroom was bare save the oicials of the court and one reporter. After a conference with his court-appointed a t t o r n e y, Goodenough told the court that he would wait until Monday be- fore entering a plea. Production was blated to start this morning (Thursday) at the Sheridan plant of Northwest Pil- ing company. Located west of town adjacent to the Taylor Lnmber company, Northwest's brand new plant will be a few weeks in getting pole output in high gear. But, with early test runs un- der their belts, officials of the pole company say only minor problems have delayed thepro- ductlon start. When launched, tentative starting date on pro- duction was July 1, so about 30 days was gained with the good weather. Northwest Presldent JayAhi- borne said the company has been producilng hand-peeled poles at Willamina for several weeks. He pointed out that the auto.- matlc equipment in the new Sheridan plant will manufac- ture poles and piling at a far greater rate and of a higher quality than the hand opera- tion. Because of the good weath- er, Ahlborne said the company has been able to put off worry- ing about driving poles and in- stalling skids for the storage of poles turned out at the plant. A network of roads has been built and rocked at the plant and several thousand poles will be held in inventory by the first of the year. Estimated costs for lnstal- ling the new local plant were $220,000. The company has been shipping high qualltypoies out of the area, but shipments will be greatly increased when Local Theater policies in Viet Nam.

Notlong ago she was worklng in one of her flower beds and encountered a stubborn clump of grass. Not being able to pull it out, she grabbed a shovel and dug it up. And up came the lost watch. She reports the watch wasn't damaged and runs beautifully, even tho It's not waterproof. Not too unusual you say? The watch went through two roto- tilllngs laying in the wet ground all winter. Increased need for blood will be emphasized when the Red Cross Bloodmobile visits Sher- idan next Tuesday, immediately after the close of a 3-day holi- day. The blood unit will be set up at the Sheridan American Legion hall from 2 to 5 p.m. Sponsoring the visit is the American Legion Auxiliary, which will provide the canteen services. Red Cross officials pointed out that blood is in great de- mand at the present time. They said quotas have been boosted 35 per cent because of the need of blood derlvltives by service-  in 1@t Nan;, stqpplies also is foreseen fol- lowing the Memorial Dayweek- end which is coming up Satur- day through Monday. Quota in Sheridan for this visit of the bloodmobile is 70 pints, 20 more than is normally expected. Several pints will be dona- ted by students at the Jesuit Novitiate, but the boys from "the bill" won't be able to turn out in sufficient quanti- ties to meet the demand. Red Cross officials said they hope local residents will meet the challenge and turn out in record numbers for the blood unit visit. Blood supplies in the Port- land center are liable to be low because of the long hoLL- day weekend. An increased use of open heart surgery also has been instrumental in lowering reserves. This will be an opportunity for numerous local residents who have received Red Cross blood to have their friends and relatives give a pint toward replacement. The county of- flclals said that the Red Cross has the blood programs avail- able, but only area residents can furnish the bloodnecessary to keep the program in oper- ation. out distanced Leonard Hespack of Sheridan and Ernest Amund- son of Newberg in the Demo- cratic balloting for the nomina- tion.
