The existence of what authorities believe to be an organization for the thefts and disposal of autos, with representatives in at least four Oregon counties east of the mountains, has come to light as the result of an accident which occurred to one of the alleged stolen cars, a Ford, which broke down at Beaver Marsh while being taken from Klamath Falls to Bend. In the train of events following the delay is included the arrest of C.H. Shutter, local second hand dealer, on a charge of complicity in the theft, the arrest of Geo. Taylor of Bend, charged with having liquor in his possession, and the capture of Oscar Houston of Prineville on an auto stealing charge.

If $5,000 in pledges can be raised, Prineville may have a new museum, according to Charles Hutchinson, president of the Crook County Historical Society.
Many people have indicated an interest in constructing a larger building which will house a greater number of exhibits. The new museum would serve Crook County and would emphasize the Central Oregon area.
