Editor East Oregonian: ' ,
Allow me to congratulate the T.ast
f ireitnniiin on the manner In which U
ti.ts behind every progressive move,
i biive read vour various, articles, on
the mm h needed development of our
natural resources, namely. The John
Day anil Columbia River Water Power
1 have been in localities where tne
word progress was not In the diction,
ary, where roads, huh deep In mud,
have mowed among stump the past
twenty five years because they were
In the way, where gravel has been
lacking for the reason that lh road
An. not made down the stream bed,
where progressive movements, such as
we fosier today are as unreasonable a
it .Inly Snow man In ArUnna.
Such localities within our slate, and
every other stato of the union ara
fcerely In need of a hypo Injection of
Eutoleru Oregon spirit.
Nature has provided the foundation
for an era or Intense development
within our' midst and Eastern Oregon
spirit will not leave It to tho coming
generation lo accomplish.
Out of respect for the earty pioneers
of this, district who have weathered
through the cactus and sand tond era
and made possible the local needs of
such development, it behooves our
tarioim communitiesto come together
en theso matters and uphold our repu
tation lif progress and thrift.
I,et the good work go on.
