THE AMERICAN PRESS ASSOCIATION
WINTER THEN WHAT?
ITE HAVE had so little real winter
V V weather m far this year that our
people have hardly realized its be
ing here. However, the rather balmy
weather of the lat week is a remin
der, even if a severe seige does set
in, that Spring is in the offing and
with it will come days of activity. Are
we preparing now, planning the
spring's work, that it may be system
atized, so that our toil may be made
to count for the utmost?
People are prone to take life so
easy during a lull that they become
fat and laiy, and if not watchful of
themselves they may overlook the
glorious opportunity that is theirs.
There is a time for preparation and
a time for execution. Now is the
time for preparation. When the time
comes to get busy, we must pet busy.
There is no time then for planning.
The work must be done at once. The
fact then is self-evident: he who
has his work mapped out beforehand
will get his work done up in good
shape, while he who has neglected to
do so will find at the end of the sea
son that he overlooked a good half
of what should have been done. Then
when the harvest comes, prosperity
smiles on him who has looked "to

these self-same citixens thinking
about a thorough renovating of their
premises? Not only inside, but out
side as well? In fact is there any
kind of a erne program being planned
to make Heppner a more attractive
place in which to live? We have
beard of none, have you? The time
for preparation is at hand. Only
few short weeks, and then we should
There is no effective argument
against helping our town. We have
chosen this place as our abode. While
we are here, even though we do not
intend to stay long, our abiding will
be much more pleasant in a clean, up-
to-date community. Then, if we in
tend to leave, the attraction which
we have to offer a prospective suc
cessor would repay us many times in
a monetary way. If we are disgust
ed with our town, with ourselves and
with everyone else, because things
happen to be a little tight, let's swal
low our loss and pack up. A town
that's not good enough to do some
thing for should not be good enough

A Message from the Oregon Bankers
EVERY true American thrilla at the

is the bone and sinew, the heart and
soul of our Democracy.
It is that for which our ancestors
fought and died in the Revolutionary
War. We celebrate with great re
joicing each year when Independence
Day comes around and we are partic
ularly proud of the Declaration of In
dependence as the greatest American
This is as it should be. The attain
ment of American Liberty is the fin
est achievement in our national life,
and in its preservation every one of
us would gladly lay down his life.
But that is only one kind of liberty,
one form of Independence political
and religious freedom.
There is another and exceedingly
important kind of Independence that
is directly related to the daily lives.
the well-being, comfort and happiness
of each one of us: an Independence
that ia vital to the preservation of
our national integrity. Without it
we would degenerate from a nation of
sovereign individuals to one of prac
tical slavery. This is Economic In
dependence; the assurance of being
abie to provide for the material needs
of life: the physical comforts and
even luxuries that can make living
today so thoroughly enjoyable. -
That is why we celebrate Thrift
Week each year. Thrifty living will
enable you m later years to look up
on Thrift Week as a Holiday Week
to show your happiness at having
achieved Financial Independence.
How can you do it? By starting
now to save something systematically
each week out of what you earn. Put
these savings in the bank at interest
and make your money work for you.

gether the result is Prosperity. It is
not alone what you make, but how

hoarded money is lazy money. Be

Annual income 20; annual expen

ness; annual income 20, annual ex
penditure 20 6s result: Misery."
It ia the margin of saving that
makes all the difference and it is the
little sums we save regularly that
give us the capital on which to build
later in life.
But it is not in the saving of money
and material things alone that one
achieves a thrifty life.
The wise employment of our time
and the conservation of our physical
energies are equally important.
Time is the essence of our life. The
only time we can be sure of is the
present moment To live a happy,
healthy, contented life, we must make
careful and wise expenditure of our
time, our abilities and our resources.
It is so easy to fritter away our
time, dissipate our health and waste
our money foolishly. We should make
every minute, every ounce of energy
and every penny return full value to
We cannot be thrifty by proxy; the
practice of it must be by individual
choice and determination.
Acquire the habit of spending your
money, your time and your strength i
as effectively as you can.
The immortal Scotch bard, Bobby
Bums, with his native canniness,
sums up Thrift in these words writ
ten to a friend:
To catch Dame Fortune's golden smile ,
