THE Herpnr Commercial club may
ytt outlive iti reputation. What
that rrutation is, is hardly necessary
to iY.et.tion, but for the benefit of
those who may have a lapse, of mem
ory we mill reiterate that it is noted
for it r. umber of demises, being about
a versatile as a cat in this respect.
But now the club has been erpaniiei
for some three months and it is going
to meet again. It is our ardent prayer
that ft may meet again, and again
and yet again, and again, and a pa in
yea. that it will nerer say die.
President Van Marter ha called
meeting for next Wednesday evening.
the first since the orgamiation meet
ing early this spring. Perhaps some
have already been shaking their heads
and saying "too bad it was a very
good thing while it lasted." But
thoM who have thus expressed them
aelvea will receive a jolt right in the
aolar plexus next Wednesday for the
club is not dead and what is more it
has more pep than the ordinary babe
in its swaddling clothes though it
might be said to be its "steenth"
chiidhood. even if it is only three
months old this time.
What's past in regard to the club is
dead and buried, however, and it is
the hope of the president that every
member and as many more who want
to break in. will be on hand Wednes
day, for there are some mighty good
things in store, including food for
both brain and stomaeh, as a luncheon
is part of the program. Plans and de
velopments of the Heppner-Spray road
will be discussed. Interior trade rela
tions and what Heppner wants to do
with reference to the Heppner-Monu-ment
road, and what she can do in re
gard to it. will be talked over, and
other matters brought up, including
a mail route between Heppner and
Most of Heppner's business men
agree that all these things mean a
pre a.t deal for Heppner and would like
to see them go over, but the fly in the
ointment is the scarcity of money
with which to put them over. These
problems then resolve themselves
mainly into one issue, that of financ
ing them. It is impossible for Heppner
or even Morrow county to think of
taking on the burden alone, and this
scares some poeple out. However,
there are ways of obtaining outside
help, and it is in this direction that
the commercial club will extend its
efforts. It does no good for just one
or two persons to do a lot of hulla
ballooing and this is the reason the
commercial club was revived, to get
the united effort of the citizens of the
community. The question now is. are
the Heppner business men still as
enthusiastic as they were at the or
gan irati on meeting. If they are all
well and good, there will be a big
attendance Wednesday night. But if
history repeats itself, as the old ad
age aaya, there is liability of that
oid chronic inertia setting in again.
Let's outlive our reputation.
