Newspapers Will Help in Reconstruction
A few years ago when war activities were being- car
ried on the newspapers were called upon to help "put over"
every proposition. If it were a Red Cross drive, a Liberty
Loan or a Food Conservation campaign whatever the de
mand, columns of copy were furnished to the newspapers
with the demand that they be given publicity. When suc
cess crowned each effort, as it did in every case, those in
charge were profuse in thanks
out the aid of the newspapers they would have failed. They
knew the value of publicity and used it intelligently and
Would the Good Roads campaign, which resulted in
Oregon's wonderful system of state highways, ever have
been put over and the highways constructed without
the aid of the newspapers of the states?
Does anyone think for a minute that the Portland 1925
Fair will ever be carried to a successful issue without
of the newspapers of the states?
Portland has tackled a

Tnr inst.mce !
There are in Heppner, in round numbers, about sixty i
business and professional firms and individuals who carry
on their business and make -their living here each - one of j
whom is directly or indirectly benefitted in a substantial j
and material way by the publicity given their town by its ,
newspapers. Of this number about 20, 01- 33 lcr CQn arc rc"

semi-occasional advertisers and about 15, or 42 per cent do
not believe in advertising and religiously live up to their
Is such a condition representative of a live, modern
community? Is it a square deal the 67 per cent
are handing out to the 33 per cent? Is it good
sportsmanship for two-thirds of the business com
munity to permit the other third to pay for
all the publicity the town receives from its newspapers?
The benefits, in a general way, accrue to all, then why
should not all put their shoulders to the wheel and help sup
port the publicity organs that work week after week and
year after year to help keep the town on the map, to keep
trade at home and to make Heppner a better town to live in
and to do business and make money in?
The Herald is not offering these remarks in any spirit
of complaint but, candidly, is it the right way to do busi
ness, to build up Heppner?
People on the outside looking for any information
about Heppner often send for sample copies of one or both
of the newspapers in order to form an idea of what sort of
a town it is by reading the news and advertising colums.
What an idea of the town must'such a reader receive by
going thru the advertising colums of either of I leppner's
newspapers. He would gain the impression that the town
boasts of a couple of grocery stores, one general store, one
pastime, one blacksmith shop, and a couple of garages a
motion picture house, no barber shop, no furniture store, no
shoe store, no laundry, no electrician, no battery service sta
tion, rto hotel, one millinery, one confectionery,' two banks,
several lawyers, a doctor or two and a dentist. Is that
representative of the town! 1 9 such a showing likely to en
tohuse a man who has never been here with the idea that
Heppner is really much of a town?
We all know the conditions that have prevailed here the
past two years and we know that we have all been forced to
cut expenses to the quick during the deflation period but
what abv... reconstruction? Are we going to reconstruct
build up again, to make Hppner what she once was and
what she must be again if any of us arc going to
prosper, or are we going to lay down our hands,
scared stiff, and quit? If Heppner is ever
going to re-construct, is ever going to come back,
in that reconstruction and coming back process the news
papers are going to do their part just as they did it during
the war and in that work they should have the hearty sup
