A LIVE WORKER COTXD ENTER
THE RACE AND WIX A PRIZE
WITH LITTLE EFFORT ....
New ones could enter right now
and walk away with one of the best
prizes if they would devote a little
time and effort toward getting the
credits and subscriptions.
The standing of the club members
as announced in today's Herald,
which shows all credits issued to
various club members up to 9 o'cloc
Saturday night, and this shows that
some live workers can get into the
campaign and walk away with one
of the best prizes for a few subscrip
tions would soon place you where
you would lead the entire campaign.
If you are in the campaign, stay
in, and if your name has not been en
tered then send in your name at onca
and get busy and work hard and if
you do this you are bound to be a
nrize winner. Here is a wonderful
opportunity waiting for you to come
along and grasp it an- yet you are
passing it by without any effort what
soever to take advantage of it.
There is nothing in today's count
to discourage anyone. On the oilier
hand there are such big possibilities
that to overlook this chance to get
on the payroll of this campaign and
make from $25 to $250 weekly is
like failing to pick up easy money
from the street.
Don't get discouraged now that the
camjaign is getting well under way
and don't let anyone else discourage
you. Someone from somewhere will
earn the big prizes and you may just
as well be included in t'.-.at "some
one' class as your, friend, relative or
neighbor,. All it ta'kes v win, is
first to recognize an. ppirtunify when
you see it, and second, a woll-direcied
Most of the country around this
city has not been touched so far as
subscriptions go and therefore the
ones who will get out into' the field
and work will be well rewarded for
their efforts by the large number of
subscriptions they will leeeive from
the ones! who will be glad to help
them in the campaign. If you arc
the first to get into the fields which
have not been worked you will get
the lions share of the business ant:
be able to pile Up hundreda of thous-
ands of credit?.
It is in you to win if you will. This

C&USHXB TO EE MOVED
Six Miles of Macadam Surface Result
of Season's Work on Lexing
Road work on the Lexington-.Tarman
market road has been completed for this
season and as a result six miles of fine
macadam is now serving the. heavy
wheat traffic from that section, an im
provement that has been long: needed
by the farmers of that neighborhood!.
The crushing plant is being taken
down and It is understood the plant will
be moved to some point ajbove Heppner
hill, leading to the Heppner Flat, Eisht
mile and Hardman sections, will be the
next stretch of road to be improved.
While this action has not been formally
taken by the county court it is tinder
stood that it has been agreed upon and
will be made a matter of official record
Heppner hill has always been a hard
nut for county officials to crack because
of the heavy grade and the fact that
the road has always carried perhaps the
heaviest traffic in the county. A new
grade was made some six years ago, be
fore the state highway department had
fixed the five per cent maximum grade
rule which now prevails and tho best
that could be done at that time was a
grade that in a few places slightly ex
ceeds seven per cent.
"When the county was bonded for good
roads four years ago $70,000 of the total
amount was apportioned to this road and
a year later a new survey was made
by a state highway engineer that came
within the five per cent limit. This
survey, however, had to be rim on the
other side of the canyon and proved
from estimates to be an expensive grade
to build. County officials and other old
settlers familiar with the country also
contended that It would never make a
desirable winter road for the reason
fthat in many places it would 'bo filled
iwith drifting snow in every storm.
After considering the matter from
every angle the county board has decid
ed to improve the grade sufficiently to
bring it to albout six per cent and put
down the macadam arguing that the
r-ople have not ,yot. received the worTh
of the money already expended and that
with the money now available it is bet
ter to have several miles of good six
per cent road than to attempt to build
an entirely new five per cent grade.
Of the $70,000 apportioned to this road
only about $ 10,000 now remains after
paying for the new survey and for im
provements at other points on the road.
It is estimater that about six miles
of the road can be pntin shape and nui
cadamed with the money now on hand.
