THa, AMKUKAN l kKK ASSOCIATION
-RING OIT THE OLD:
THE NEW,"
RING IN
THK y-r of our Lord 1924 is at
hand. Willi it comes new hopes,
new dmirea, and new ambitions. Nine
teen Twenty-Three is Hearing its
irrave. With it, let us hope, wiil be
buried many blasted hopes, lost de
itirea, and ur gained ambition, let
the new Uke the place of the old;
oa!y, in doing so, make the new hope,
desire, and ambition more unto the
pattern set for us nearly two thou
aand year a fro by Christ Jesus.
A new order should be introduced
by our people to take the place of the
ones found faulty in the past. Let us
look carefully over the order of the
past year, and find w hat hap "caused
our blasted hopes, lost desires and un
gsined ambitions; see what methods
of procedure we have followed that
have led us astray. Then, with cray
on in hand, let us frame one all in
clusive resolution to correct these,
that our progress may be more far
reaching and our happiness many
timet multiplied when Father Time
has rolled his dial around to 1925.
No time in our section is more ap
propriate for doing this than the first
of the year. Things are at ebb-tide;
a time of relaxation is at hand. Our
harvest is over and preparations for
the new crop are nearly completed.
Only, to complete the preparations, a
better and more thorough program
for handling the new crop is neces
sary. This is the part that mostly
spells for prosperity or for failure.
We have not been prosperous the
past year. We will all admit that.
What has been the matter? We can
find all kinds of answers to this. We
blame the administration, the after
math of war, and many other causes.
But why not look to ourselves first?
Have we not been in some way at
least partly to blame? Why not look
ourselves over and see if we cannot
make corrections within ourselves
that will make for better times the
coming year. The group is composed
of individuals. When each indmd
sal within the group becomes per
fect, then, and then only, can the
group be perfect. This applies to
firms, towns, cities, counties and
states, as well as to nations and yes,
to the entire world. Let no one blame
the other fellow till he himself has
become perfect.
Many times the past year have we
heard the phrase, "What's the matter
with Heppner?" It shall not be our
purpose to try to answer this. But
let's think of it in forming our reso
lutions, and try to the utmost, the
con.ing year, to correct anything that
Ti'ay be the matter with Heppner.!
We can all help by looking to our- !
selves first.
With this plea for an organized at
tack on problems that will confront
us in 1&24. The Gazette-Times ex
tends to ali it friends, neighbors,
and a?, im. in lances, the wish for a
most i 'osperous and happy New
Year.

IT'S A FINNY W ORLD.
THERE it scarcely a day torn off
the calendar but what you hear
some one complaining of high taxes.
With a good many taxpayers it has
become a tort of chronic grouch.
They will tell you the present day
levy of taxes has a tendency to in
jure business and retard prosperity.
If a candidate for public office an
nounces that he stands for a reduc
tion of taxes the people look upon
him as a Moses who will lead them
out of the wilderness. He receives
their support at the polls and is el
ected on ft platform the main plank
of which is the reduction of taxes.
And yet when he redeems his pledee
and makes good his promises the
same men who stood by him for the
reason of these pledges set up a howl
that can be beard over in the next
state. It dawns upon them they are
unable to do without the things that
it is necessary to dispense with be
fore a cut in taxes can be made.
This was demonstrated a few days
ago when the tax budget of Umatilla
county was cut over $2,000.00. Th
commission responsible for the cut
was criticized. Expressions similar
4a wni4lioHl ( Driifltd to Pretidmt Hurting
Slix Ilf betran World history's been wrought
With an'i $nm batik oft nwwed and fought;
Progress haa lament th evil of our way.
And peace la dawning with a newer day.
The force of tnlpht not rtsht haa often ruled.
And all the world In armament been schooled;
I'leaae God. no more, vast craveyarua where we kneel.
But Join our hearts and hands for comuiou weal.
Men's minds hare Tied for better ways to malt
IVatructive foroea for destruction's sake;
From chana and contusion there shall rise
Kndurlnf peace and everlasting ties.
Chaw
We pray for peace ou earth, good will toward all)
May love instead of hate our hearts enthrall.
We pray that every nation sees the right ;
That truth and Justice rule In place of wight;
That armament forever cease Its reign ;
And wasting war may ne'er return again.
Long may the world be bright
With freedom's holy light.
And sing
Creiit Clod our King!
to these were heard: "The commis
sion should be ousted." "We must
have the thing they took away."
It seems to be a case where every
one is ready and willing to dance,
but when it comes to paying the fid
dler, that's different. Hermiston

AX OREGON SPORT.
ONE of the commonest qualifica
tions of the public utilities of Or
egon is their utility at the receiving
end of a harpoon. Through diligent
.practice Old Man Oregon has become
unusually proficient in "soaking"
these luckless corporations. Most of
them he could not very well get along
without, but that he retains their
senices at all is probably due to the
fact that they are "stuck here with
large investments and cannot get
away. The latest wrinkle consists of
boosting the assessed valuation of
public utilities a little matter of
twenty per cent. They are now tax
ed at ft ratio of assessed valuation to
full valuation approximately double
that of realty. Nothing is gained of
course, by this sort of practice, as
the consumer pays in the long run.
We assume that the psychological ef
fect is supposed to be wholesome,
however, for the reason that the con
sumer who is Mr. Taxpayer in gen
eral is given occasion for delightful
gloating at the discrimination against
the "soulless corporations," yet does
n't realize that an inevitable boomer
ang hits his own pocket. Weston

1922 WHEAT PRICES.
SINCE the actual closing of the 1922
pool, which was made some time
ago, the actual final average prices
secured by grower members through
the Oregon Cooperative Grain Grow
ers association, are available.
The figures mentioned below are
the average of a large number of re
turns to growers at the points men
tioned and represent actual cash paid
to the grower for the wheat deliver
ed. In addition to paying the grower
this money, the Association paid in
terest on the advances made to the
member, paid his freight and ware
housing charges, and the entire ex
penses of marketing his wheat.
The 1922 wheat crop was consider
ably off-grade and the figures listed
are not the basis No. 1 prices that
would be quoted in the country but
are the "as is" prices actually paid
to the grower:
