Morrow and Umatilla
The members of the Butter Creek
Highway Association held their an
nual meeting at Pine City, December
26. Representatives attended from
the Umatilla,. Echo, Hermiston, and
Heppner Commercial clubs. Tli&
Stanfield Club was the only one that
was not represented, which had pre
viously taken an interest, their dele
gates were unable to attend. About
forty-five people were there in the in
terest of this important highway. The
committee, whose chairman, was Al
len Thompson, for Umatilla county,
reported progress made in that coun
ty, and Chas.. Bartholomew as chair
man of the Morrow county commit
tee, stated that they had come to the
Morrow County Court, secured the
survey on the road, obtained the
money to go to work, and had built
the road, otherwise, Mr. Bartholomew
said he had nothing to .report, in fact
he doubted if there was anything
more that the Association needed to
know. The main problem for discus
sion was how to obtain the money
from Umatilla county to open this
highway. After considerable discus
sion it was decided to draw a peti
tion in all the affected neighbor
hoods and that committees from all
the western Umatilla county Com
mercial clubs, and the committee
for the Butter Creek Highway Asso
ciation should go with these petitions
to the Umatilla Court on January 5
to ask for sufficient money from the
Umatilla Market Road Funds to build
this road. This was one of the most
enthusiastic meetings that the Asso
ciation has ever held.
This highway will be of great im
portance to the' norfhern, " part of
Morrow county. It will give an op
portunity for the people living be
tween Sand Hollow and Butter Creek
to haul their commodities to market.
It will also open up through the Per
cy Jarmon-Lexington highway the
traffic from Umatilla westward, by
reducing the haul that these farmers
have to make with their wheat to
market, it will materially reduce the
Cost, of production in this territory
and since it will give more profit to
the farmers there it will react in fa
vor of every town in this section of
the country. It is important to Hepp
ner, not because it leads to Heppner
or from Heppner, but because it will
mean an increased prosperity f) the
farmers who otdinarily trade at

STANDARD OIL WILL
HELP IJUILD HEPPNER
James F. Cook,, local manager of
the Standard Oil interests had his
company entered as a contributing
member of the Heppner Comnif rcial
club a few days ago on the theory
(that any outside corporation operat
ing a branch in other towns should
consider itself a part of the commun
ity in which it is doing business and
assist in a substantial way in build-
j lng up that community.
This snapshot of an American feeding kitchen In still prostrate eastern
Europe shows what America means to the otherwise helpless childhood of the
war-swept nations. Funds supporting these outposts of succor and other
agencies for the relief of children stricken by the disease caused by under

the Innocent of their only hope for life, eight great American relief organiza
