North end wheat harvested by truck for the first time
OUT OF THE PAST
Compiled by Cheryl Jenkins
100 YEARS AGO
Oct. 10, 1918
Saving of sugar is urgent.
This means careful use and
no waste of sugar or sugar
substitutes. Cultivate a taste
for less sweet desserts, bev-
erages, jams and jellies. We
need only enough sugar to
make our meals palatable.
Thanks to the use of auto
trucks, a large part of the
north end wheat, which is to
be sold this year, has been
delivered at the elevator and
warehouses already. In for-
mer years the custom was to
wait until winter and haul the
wheat out on sleighs.
Gottfred Julius Carlson
and Elmer Carlson, brothers,
departed in great haste early
this week from their home
at Zumwalt after a gather-
ing there without precedent
in the history of Wallowa
County. Nearly everybody
living in the community, 100
men and women, gathered at
the house Monday night. The
visitors told the brothers they
were ungrateful and disloyal
to the land which had given
them a home and prosperity,
and advised them to move
out without delay. There have
come complaints by word of
mouth, and by letter, that cer-
tain homesteaders of alien
birth were hiding behind this
birth to escape assuming any
responsibility on behalf of
the land to which they had
come, that they refused to do
military service or to help in
war finances or Red Cross or
other kindred work.

An army of deer hunt-
ers, estimated to number
approximately 3,000, has
been swarming over Wal-
lowa County the past week
with indifferent success. Up
to yesterday, 167 bucks had
been checked in at the lockers
in Joseph, Enterprise, Lostine
and Wallowa. This represents
less than a six percent kill by
the hunters believed to be in
the field.
Cecil Baker was instantly
killed at the Stanley Shell
ranch near Wallowa Tues-
day morning when he was
crushed beneath a tractor,
which fell from a truck.
The Enterprise Lumber
Co. has completed the con-
struction of its retail lumber
yard on Greenwood Street
and will be open for busi-
ness Saturday with the public
invited in for “open house.”
Gifts for everyone, including
the women and children, and
door prizes are being offered.

Built on a truck carriage, this Checker Cab, piloted by Jerry Moffit of Lostine, appeared to
be one of the most solid cars of the 40 entered in the 1979 dirt oval track races at Wallowa
County Fairgrounds. The car eventually stalled in the middle of the track.
tion last Saturday, Wallowa
County Democrats outnum-
bered Republicans by over
650 out of a total registra-
tion of 3,408. The Democrats
have their strongest roots in
the Lostine and Wallowa No.
3 precinct. The Republican
strongholds are in the Flora
and Enterprise No. 3 precinct.
Total of the two parties is
1,362 Republicans and 2,031
Democrats. The Independents
have 8 and the non-partisan 7.
The 1968 mountain goat
season was held in the high
Wallowa mountains in the
vicinity of Sacajawea Peak
and the upper reaches of
Hurricane Creek Sept. 28
through Oct. 2. According to
the Game Commission office,
five of the eight hunters were
successful in bagging their
game.
Mr. and Mrs. Verne Rus-
sell of Joseph were subjected
to an unusual accident last
Friday when returning home
from La Grande. The wind-
shield of their car was struck
by a flying object just as a car-
load of youngsters passed by.
It was first suspected that per-
haps a beer bottle had been
thrown out by the youngsters.
However, no evidence of the
projectile, whatever it was,
could be found. The object
struck the windshield shat-
tering glass all over the occu-
pants, throughout their hair
and clothing and in the uphol-
stery of the car.
25 YEARS AGO
Oct. 7, 1993
Three Wallowa County
residents received statewide
recognition at the recent
Emergency Medical Services
Conference in Portland. Liz
Morgan was named Oregon’s
EMT of the Year, while Con-
nie Stein was the state’s lone
recipient of the Life Saving
Medal. Dennis McCleary, an
employee of PP&L, received
the EMS Civilian Medal for
his aid to victims and help
during an auto accident near
Enterprise in May.
A Troy-area man, Terry
Dale Hampton, was killed
Thursday when his pickup
rolled 600 feet off the narrow
Bartlett Road down a steep
hillside about a mile north of
Troy.
Losing no time in getting
their first production of the
year to the stage, Joseph High
School drama club members
will present a 1880s farce,
“Charley’s Aunt” next week.
The play stars Will Roundy,
Scott Dancer, Brent Latta,
Jenni Blanchet and Ash-
ley Jones and is directed by
Norma Wetzell with Amy
Washburn serving as student
director.
UPDATE
The recent archive photo
of the two gentlemen with the
antlers from their recent hunt-
ing success were Deb Fordice
and his son Phil. The photo
was taken at the Haas Horse
Troughs in 1962 or 1963. The
hunting party included Bud
Maxwell and Harold Lay.
Oregon FFA and Les Schwab work together
with food banks to ‘Drive Away Hunger’
Les Schwab Tire Centers
of Oregon has partnered with
Oregon FFA in a “Drive Away
Hunger” Initiative to help
raise as much food as possible
for those in need.
The initiative will take
place during October.
Many Oregonians today
are suffering from food inse-
curity and worry about where
their next meal may come
from. Since 2008, the Ore-
gon Food Bank has seen the
demand for emergency food
boxes increase by 44 percent.
During October, while the
Drive Away Hunger Initiative
is happening, FFA members
across the state will be doing a
variety of service activities to
raise as much food and funds
as possible. Be on the look-
out for activities and collec-
tions happening throughout
the community.
Donors are encouraged to
drop food donations at any
Les Schwab Tire Center or
local FFA Chapter. Collec-
tion bags are being distributed
to subscribers of the Wallowa
County Chieftain, or pick up a
collection bag at Les Schwab
Tire Center.
In addition to nonperish-
able food, the FFA is seek-
ing farm and ranch crop
donations. Anyone willing
to donate a portion of a food
crop, please contact your
local FFA chapter or Christa
Towery with the Oregon FFA
Foundation at ctowery@ore-
gonffa.com.
All donations received will
be given to the local food pan-
tries in your community. If
there is more food donated
than can be used in your com-
munity, it will be distributed
by the Oregon Food Bank to
other pantries throughout the
state.
Last year the Oregon FFA’s
Drive Away Hunger initiative
helped raise 510,150 pounds
of food which was enough
food to provide 382,612
meals.
