MAUPIN, SOUTHERN WASCO COUNTY, OREGON. THURSDAY. FEBRUARY 9.192L
THE YEAR $130
Who is the Maupin Commercia
Club? What are They? And
what have they done?
The Maupin Commercial club
is a body of common people who
to themselves took the oath that
they would join in the public well
fare of the community in which
they live, and while so doing
forget their own selfish interests
for the common good of all.
In talking of their doings for
the last year and a half of action
it would seem very common if
put in print, perhaps, but never
theless is worthy of mention.
About the first it did was to
get together for a general clean
up day in Maupin, and actually
hauled by donation work several
truck loads'of tin cans and refuse
from practically all over town.
Through the efforts of the
commercial club, the Oregon
State Chamber circulated several
thousand copies ofa little cir
cular telling of Maupin and
community, telling of climate,
location, principal products,
future possibilities etc, all ex
pense borne by State Chamber.
The Maupin Commercial club
upon the suggestion of Johnnie
West and Joe Graham who
happened to be in Maupin one
day, met Mr. Scherrard of the
forestservice .and possibly are
directly responsible through this
meeting for the Mt. Hood loop
connection with Wapinitia if it
comes in the next year or so as
Of course we must not fail to
mention that our County com
missioner L. B. Kelly, also Mr.
Hedin I believe were present at
the meeting, which was held in
the Maupin State Bank.
Through co-operation several
things have been accomplished
in so short a time.
The most valuable perhaps is
the selection and election of a
county commissioner, chosen by
the Wapinitia and Maupin com
mercial clubs as the proper man
for the place, and elected by
co-operation with The Dalles,
who fell right in line with the
idea that Southern Wasco County
needed representation and gave
our man the largest vote in the
history of elections. Also co
operation with The Dalles made
it possible to mantain the l.'tilles
California Highway for Wtjsco
County route. Added to by i be
Dalles by bridging the Columbia
above Tin? Dalles makes this
high-way an international high
way you might say as it furnish
es a direct route from Canada 'to
Maupin Commercial Club sent
delegates to interview our comity
court and try and let the COURT
know in an intelligent manner
what was desired by the com
munity, which is a much better
way in my judgement than one,
two, or three individuals meeting
our county court without the
knowledge of the balance of the
population and trying to give
the desires of the community, as
they mignt make a mistake.
, And I must say that our Go.unty
Court has given The Maupin
Commercial Club a willing ear,
and has shown all the curtesy ex
pected each and every time they
were called upon.
The Maupin Commercial Club
had delegates present to inter
view the State Highway Com
missioners at Portland when the
location of The Dalles California
highway was at 6take and was
sliding to Sherman County for
various reasons. These delegates
were accompaind by more Wasco

at The Dalles where Mr. Barrett,
State Highway commissioner
publicly announced that this body
of men, above reffered to carried
the most weight, made the deep
est impression on the Highway
commission, than any body of
men the commissiun had met
since his election, because- there

There was the trip to Kalamath

Sure we have a rocky road to
