Wallowa County Chieftain
Teacher retires;
barn lost to fire

Water users on irrigated
lands are filing their claims
this week with officials of
the state water board, who
occupy the rooms of the
county court in the court
house. The officials spent
last week at Wallowa and
Lostine and will go to Jo-
seph next week. The ses-
sions are in the nature of a
court proceeding. All water
users in the valley have been
notified of the proceedings,
and must file their claims,
or lose their rights to the
water for irrigation purpos-
es ... These claims, accom-
panied by maps prepared by
engineers of the board, will
be turned over by it to the
Circuit court which in due
time will issue a decree cov-
ering all water rights on the
Wallowa river.
In the county baseball
league, Enterprise and Jo-
seph are now even, each
having won three games and
lost one. Wallowa has won
two and lost two and Alder
Slope has lost four.
While returning to Chico
from Enterprise J.J. Poulson
was painfully injured ten
days ago. He was driving
a team and Henry Ibberson
was riding with him. They
were going down Johnson
creek, on the new road lead-
ing down to Crow creek,
when one of the horses be-
gan kicking. The tongue of
the hack broke and the hors-
es started to run, of course
upsetting the vehicle. Mr.

$27.9 million contract to the
Morrison-Knudsen compa-
ny of Boise by Idaho Pow-

three dams constructed in
the Hells Canyon stretch of
the Snake river.
EDITORIAL: The argu-
ments generally advanced
in favor of restricting the
sale of mail order guns,
and otherwise licensing and
regulating the purchase and
ownership of firearms by ci-
vilians, are not very impres-
sive in our opinion.

Freddy Falconer had the
misfortune to lose a large
barn by fire early Saturday
morning. The barn was full
of hay, harness, pack sad-
dles and camp equipment.
There was very little insur-

from 1000 to 1500 dollars.

In the past few weeks
several local boys have re-
ported what they have seen
around German concentra-

experiences similar to those
already reported in the press
and over the radio. T-4 Max
Bauer, who is serving with
an army band unit, writes
his mother, Mrs. Ethel Wade
... “We have been busy the
last few days playing me-
morial services for the dead
from a concentration camp
near by. Those that had
been buried were buried
in a common grave while
a great many hadn’t been
buried at all. The American
authorities forced the Ger-

The Wallowa County
Court, meeting Friday with
the county budget commit-
tee, voted to allot $5,000
of State money received for
county Fair promotions to
the Joseph Chamber of Com-
merce for use in putting on
the Chief Joseph Days show.
The action contained a pro-
viso that the Chamber quali-
fy under state law for the use
of the funds which are limit-
ed to Fair promotion purpos-
es ... The Fair Board — Reid
Johnson, Dave Wagner and
Don Wallace — took strong
issue with the decision con-
tending that the Board could
use all of the $20,000 plus
received from the state for
county Fairs, and more, for
its normal 4-H, FFA, and
Open Class Fairs and for its
building program at the fair-

A spring Wallowa Coun-

undoubtedly discouraged
some car owners who had
planned to take part in the
first Mountain Cruise car
rally based in Joseph last
weekend, but the weath-
er cleared for the Show ’n’
Shine event Saturday, draw-
ing a large crowd to enjoy
the lineup of 75 shiny cars
on Main Street from 10 a.m.
to 3 p.m. Saturday ... “We
didn’t get as many cars as
we expected, but the num-
ber we had was just right for
a first show. We’re definite-
ly going to do it again next
year,” said Chuck Garrett,
rally organizer.

IMNAHA — Four Mag-
ic Garden volunteers who
were planting tomatoes
on the morning of June 4
brought home something
from the experience besides
the satisfaction of a job
well done: the memory of a
closeup view of an Imnaha
wolf bringing home the ba-
con – or a fawn in this case.
The Magic Garden en-
closure sits on the Imnaha
property of Janie Tippett,
who was among the specta-
tors. “Four of us were trans-
planting tomato plants and
I had gone to the irrigation
ditch to fill a watering can,
and there was a horse drink-
ing (outside the enclosure),
when suddenly the horse
went ballistic,” Tippett said.
Initially, Tippett thought
the horse was afraid of an
unusual hat she was wear-
ing. The horse ran over to
two other horses and all
three stood trembling with
their ears pointed forward.
“A wolf was coming out
of the tall grass just yards
from us with a newly born
fawn in its mouth,” Tippett
said. She added she was
close enough to see the
fawn was a newborn. The
wolf crossed underneath
Tippett’s property line fence
and started up a draw when
a doe wandered out, as did
another wolf that met the
original wolf at the mouth
of the draw.
“They (the wolves) just
looked at us like, ‘hello, you
want to join us for break-
fast?’ while the poor doe
was racing around. Having
seen this before, I was pret-
ty sure the doe had another
one in her because her stom-
ach was still big,” Tippett
said. She added she thought
the wolf took the fawn just
as it was born as it did not
make a sound.
“It was pretty tragic, and
I didn’t have a camera to get
a picture of it, and we had
plenty of time to get one.
We were just so spellbound
it happened,” Tippett said.
