Harmony should be the one thing
in everything pertaining to the pub
lic. Without harmony our schools
churcher, societies and business
generally would be a ship without a
rudder, a heating stove without fuel
in a blizzard, and a disrupting in
fluence along all lines.
EspeciJly is it necessary to have
harmony in the schools and churches.
Many a rift has developed in those
institutions because of factional
disagreements, personal ambitions
and other causes. Whole communi
ties have split into factions because
of personal ambitions and many
church has been broken up by one or
two persons showing a desire to
cither rule or ruin such bodies.
Chrkt said, "As ye would that
others should do unto you do ye also
unto them." The Savior did not im
ply that one or two or three persons
should rule His houses; He did not
mean that one or two or three per
sons' ideas were superior to all
others and that they should be list
ened to and catered to to the detri
ment of the whole church. Instead
He meant that a spirit of harmony
should prevail and that His teachings
should be incentive for humility in
Mnupin has but one Protestant
chuch and that has been verging up
on disruption. Classes have been
fostered and a feeling of antagonism
set up by a dissatisfied power-: eek
ing element Fortunately, however,
right has prevailed and again our
church haa taken on new life and
promises to grow into an institution
of great moral worth and to exert a
real influence in matters of civic
welfare. All is harmonious there and
it is the firm intenion of everyone
to continue in harmony and that no
future chasms be allowed to cleave
the feeling of brotherly love.
The effect on American life of
firearms has always been a healthly
one. The love of sport and hunting,
inherited from English forefathers,
has made for both physical and men
tal alertness.
It is this phase of the American
character, the love of sport and the
right to protection, that has made
independent and liberty-loving citi
zens unfriendly to laws prohibiting
the sale and use of small arms. Guns
have been used for unlawful pur
poses and so have automobiles,
ships and mails; yet no one would
think of abolishing them. The fact
that criminals are well supplied with
revolvers, knives, poison, hammers,
ases, rope wire, dynamite and simi
lar articles, iz certainly no reason
for forbidding their use to law-abid-ding
citizens for lawful and neces
sary purposes. Quicker and more
severe punishment for the wrongdoer
is a better cure
Crime waves have proven our
many "concealed weapon" statute:
useless. And yet still more stringent
ones are being proposed, apparently
in the interest of the criminal, by
politicians who seem without know
ledge of the situation. A freedom
loving people will oppore them and
see that the honest citizen's consti
tutional right to own guns is not im
paired. An optimist Is a motorist who
starts out with poor brakes, no spare,
a knock in the motor, and who wires
250 miles ahead for hotel reservations.
If all the autos in the United
States were placed end to end it
would be Sunday afternoon.
Gibbt Back In Town
Dan Gibbs, the itinerant harness
maker, has returned to his Maupin
shop after a time spent in the Wren
tham section. Dan may be found at
his place of business, the Morris of
fice shack, in case there are any who
desire his cervices as doctor of ail
ing harness and horse collars.
' Maupin Has 11 Dogs
Marshal Dcrthick has been around
collecting dog licenses the past week,
to far having succeeded in enriching
the town's exchequer to the amount
of $21.00. There are four more
owners of dogs to be collected from,
then the full number of dogs in Mau
pin will have been secured from the
deadly aim of our peace officer.
The September county grand jury
has rendered a report of its activities
to Judge F. W. Wilson, giving th
result of deliberations, the ca es
heard and making recommendations
regarding jail visitors and other mat
tcrs brought before it. The report
To Hon. F. W. Wilson, Circuit
We, the Grand Jury drawn at the
September, 1927, term of court, re
spectfully report that we have been
in session three days since convened
by your order on February 7, 1928,
and we have completed our invest!
(ration of all matters that have come
to our attention. We have examined
twenty-nine witnesses and have re
turned eight true bills, involving ten
defendents. We are returning no
not true bills. We have one special
recommendation in the case of one
with the district attorney.
Moreover we have gone into two
other investigations where we are
returning neither true bills nor not
true bills. The first of these other
investigations involves, the workings
of a gang of boys that have been
committing petty larcenies around
The Dalles. It developes that two of
the boys been in the reform
school of this state and are now on
parole therefrom. We think that
that they should be returned to that
in titution. We further think that it
is proper for the juvenile court to
take jurisdiction of the other child
ren as delinquent or dependent
children. In this connection we take
the opportunity to make two side re
marks: In the first place the boys
belonging to this gang stole milk
bottles, food, and po.sibly some fuel.
The food was taken from one of the
large manufacturing firms of The
Dalles and the circumstances under
which the food was kept was practi
cally an invitation to the theft there
of. We do not choose to name any
particular business institutions, but
we do think that in this particular
case here was carelessness in the
keeping of the food or produce,
which amounted practically to an in
vitation to a family in need to filch
the stuff. However the second ob
sevation we make is one which we
feel should be given wide publicity
in The Dalles. We find that it is
apparently the custom for many of
the storekeepers to buy milk bottles
promiscuously from irresponsible
kids. We could name these store
keepers if we choose to do so, and we
feel that such persons who make a
practice of buying milk bottles from
irresponsible kids are morally guilty
parties to the theft of the bottles.
We feel that the merchant ought to
take this matter up among them
selves and tee that they mutually en
force a rule to the effect' that milk
bottles will be purchased only from
customers known to them.
At this sesson we have learned
that on account of the crowded con
dition of the jail, pos ibly largely
due to the fact that Wasco county
is now temporarily taking care of
the Umatilla prisoners, promiscuous
visiting of prisoners is considerable
of a nuisance to the authorities; and
that it is not possible, when promi
scuous visiting of prisoners is per
mitted, to take any precautions
against introduction of prohibited
articles into the jail. We do not feel
equal to setting out rules which we
think should govern this visiting of
prisoners, but we suggest and urge
that the county court, in consulta
tion with the sheriff, promulgate
visitors' rules, such as prescribing
certain days and hours when vir.its
may be made, and perhapg prescrib
ing some reasonable limitation on the
lengths of vists. We leave this mat
ter to the county court, but we
strongly urge that something along
that line be carried out.
Also we believe that the councy
court should avail itself of the man
power in the councy jail by way of
excavating or working arcmd the
county farm, or on the roads or in
public parks.
We understand that we will strain
!be reconvened as a grand jury dar
ling May, and we request the citizens
:of the county to appear before ur; at
that time to present any alleged
violations of the criminal law, and
we ask them to call to our attention
individually any matters needing in
vestigation between now and then.
Dated at The Daller, Oregon, this
9th day of February, 1928. Signed
by C. B. Remington, Foreman, and
six other members of the grand jury.

-T is the policy of Gen
eral Motors to maintain continuous improvement,
in every one of its car divisions, with no interrup
tion in production.
This means that you enjoy the benefits of
new engineering developments promptly just as
soon as they have been thoroughly tested on the
1245-acrc Proving Ground.
It means that you can now order the new
Chevrolet, Pontiac, Oldsmobile, Oakland, Buick,
LaSalle, Cadillac, or GMC Truck, and receive
immediate delivery.
Behind this policy of continuous improvement
is an organization so widespread and resourceful
that it can make and sell quality automobiles
more economically than any automobile manu
facturer in the world.
In the north and south it logs and mills its
own lumber. In the cast it makes its own ball
bearings and radiators. In the middle west it
produces its own plate glass. Its plants are busy
in 33 important American cities.
From almost 5,000 suppliers, its materials are
obtained steel by the hundreds of thousands of
tons wire by the tens of thousands of miles
upholstery by the acre nuts, bolts and washers
by the millions. Its sales and service take place
through 33,000 dealers. More than 275,000 families
look directly to General Motors for their liveli
hood almost a million and a half men, women
and children in every community in the land.
Meaning so much to so many, General Motors
has felt a supreme obligation to look ahead.
Are there methods by which General Motors
cars can be better built to better serve?
Are there new ideas which can increase the
utility and pleasure and safety of motoring?
Are there new materials which can add to
owner satisfaction?
Such are the questions that all General Motors
engineers have always asked. The answers have
made it possible, year after year, to offer an in
creasing measure of beauty in design, modern
performance, riding comfort and distinct style.
Thus in every price class, from Cadillac to Chevro
let, purchasers arc constantly benefiting from the
General Motors policy of progress.
