STATE AID WILL BE ;
, ASKED FOR HIGHWAY
Pendleton-John Day Highway
1 Already Designated as
State Road by Commission.
That state aid may be ob
tained for the" Umatilla-Grant
county road, is the belief of
Judge Schftnnep and other
members of the county court,
following1 a study of the situa
tion since the return to Pendle
ton. The report of the state
highway commission for 1919
20 shows the "Pendletoh-John
Day highway listed as a state
highway. The route of the
road as given on the state road
map is from Pendleton to John
Day by way-of Albee, Ukjah,
Range and Susanville. It is feit
state aid for this road is, justi
fied because it is a through
road, extendingnot only to
John Jay but on to Bums and
the California line. However,
the portion from Pendleton to
John Day is all that is desig
nated on the road map. It is
planned to lay plans for seek
ing state aid before the utate
commission makes up its' bud
get for next year.: ,
K. B. Al DRICH. -"Curtilage
mum be destroyed."
As Interpreted by W. . CaVfrhtll,
Grunt county commissioner, . that
mean the obstructions, to good travel
from Umatlllu county to Grant county
and vu tu Hie California line via 'Har
ney and Lake counties must be rettov
ud. There are at leut 28 Umatilla,
county people who cun hear; witness
that tlicro arc some stretches on this
road that should be treated as Koine's
undent onomy wan treated. Of these
placet the ono most in need of the ax
,or some other weapon is the Umatilla
county grade down the north fork of
tho John Day river. In the last few
weeks this grade has not Improved.
It still remains tho worst bit of road
betwoon Pendleton and Canyon City
and there In nothing- to equal It be
tween Baker on the east and lleppner
to the west. ; , '
However our John Day grade hag
boon cussed and dlscussedi so much
that further words are needless. The
depraved character of, that brake
1urnlng, tire bunting hill Is admitted
by all. What vtfe did learn on thin trip
is that In the game of Improving trado
relations with 9 rant county, Umatilt
cdtinty holdn the cards If she but wteh
n to use them. The members of the
Vniatllla county court, who were with
the party that returned from its thrco
days sojourn yesterday know what to
do and they will do it if the people say
the word, (
' Why Ifl-ppne Gels Trade
In other words the trip home by
way of Hepimer shows why this coun
try has lost business that formerly
oamo this way and how by one stroke
that business and much more may be
made to flow northward.
"We can see now why business is go.
lug to Heppner," said Judire Schannep
when tho party was at Monument, en
route to the capital of Morrow county.
The roads to Monument aro good. But
Monument Is 65 miles from Heppner
'and after we had covered that distance
we saw tho situation more clearly in
its real light. Grant county business
is going to Heppner instead of to Uma
tilla county towns because that route
is the lesser of two evils. The road
to Heppner Is no boulevard and after
we get our North and South road to
functioning It will seem even less of a
boulevard than at present.
They Have Troubles Also
Immediately on leaving Monument
bound towards Heppner there Is a
grade'that is a half brother to our own
beloved John Day grade. It Is .nearly
as tall as our grade but It does not
have such a wicked face, it is not so
rocky nor so steep and the grass about
has not been so badly blistered by pro
fanlty. But It is some grade Just the
.same and it gives promise of remain
ing such for a long time to conn. The
test of the road to Heppner may be
classed as a good summer road. But
