Situation Is Reviewed At
Pine City Meeting
Pendlrtoa and Other Umatilla Dele
gation! Present; Demanda of
Section to be Fashed.
It was Ave years ago this lait July
that the Butter Creek Highway asso
ciation was brought Into existence
down at Umatilla. The primary ob
ject of the association, as we under
stand it, was to get a force behind a
road program that was in the making,
and the wisdom of the plan has been
well proven by the results that have
been obtained. Working to a large
degree upon the theory that what's
worth having is worth going after,
this organization ha secured much
of what was desired iir the way of
permanent road construction in both
Morrow and Umatilla counties in that
territory adjacent to Butter creek.
Thia has been accomplished by united
effort of the people living down that
On Sunday afternoon at Pine City,
in answer to the call of J. P. Conder,
president of the association, there
were gathered representatives from
Hermiaton, Stanfield, Echo, Pendle
ton, Lexington, Heppner, Alpine and
the community round about the Pine
City neighborhood, some one hundred'
or more road enthusiasts, members of
commercial organisations, farmers,
producers, merchants, who came to
gether for an adjourned meeting of
President Conder presided in an
efficient way and succeeded in having
the meeting move off in a snappy
manner. He explained that the meet
ing was called a little lata purposely,
as he desired to wait until definite
action had been taken on the comple
tion of the Lena-Vinson gap in the
Oregon-Washington highway, before
entering into a discussion of the
plans and demands of the association.
Many speakers were called upon
from among the number present. Fred
George of Echo spoke briefly upon
the subject of "First Things First."
his talk being from the standpoint of
a member of the Echo commercial
club. He reviewed some of the work
of the association and told how, by
their united efforts they were enabled
to get the county court of Umatilla
county to agree to the building of
the hard surfaced road out of Her
miaton to the county line near Har
mons on Butter creek; how the Echo
people taxed themselves for sufficient
funds to run the road out from their
city and tie into the Butter creek
road, and what this improvement had
meant to the residents in their part
of the county. Mr. George waa glad
of the cooperation that had been se
cured from each community in this
work, and knew that it would con
tinue; there is community interest
between the two counties and yet
much to he accomplished. He felt safe
in saying that the splendid coopera
tion would continue until the pro
gram was completed, congratulating
Morrow county upon the forward step
they had taken in voting road bonds,
and assured the meeting that the
Echo commercial club was with them
to the finish, ready to do all they
could to promote the program.
In like vein a number of others
spoke. Frank Sloan was there from
Stan He Id, and on behalf of his city
heartily endorsed the remarks of Mr.
George. E. P. Dodd of Hermiston
commercial club told about the ex
perience of hia community, and for
many yaera past It seemed that the
building of ditches and roads was
about all tffey had heard down that
way, but the program was to be con
tinued and he assured the association
and those present that his community
would not lag behind in their efforts
to promote the building of good roads.
-He hoped to see the highways so ex
tended into Morrow county that the
people of hia section might more read
ily reach our timber belt and other
resources needful to them; like the
north end of Morrow county, they
could bring their products this way
and return loaded with those things
desired in carrying on in their com
munity which our section has. What
Mr. Dodd had to say quite wel.' ap
plied to the communities in the "north
end of Morrow county Boardman
and Irrigon neither one of which
was represented at the meeting.
Pendleton had a goodly represen
tation at the meeting, ten people
from that city being present. Speak
ers on the part of Pendleton were
G. A. Hartman, R. Rltner, Roy Raley,
and Tat Lonergan. Thesa gentlemen
were glad that Morrow county had
made possible the completion of the
Oregon-Washington highway. Mr.
Ritner, who is one of the fathers of
the state market road law and a pion
eer In the work for permanent roads
In Oregon as a former member of the
legislature, was very glad to speak
of the success already obtained. Fur
thermore, he assured those of Mor
row county that ha wns greatly in
terested in getting on the map the
Hardman-Spray road, recognising that
as one of the importnnt links In the
stnto highway syatom; he was glad
to know that there was assurance that
this would be speedily done; also
strongly favored closing up the gaps
and pushing the market road program
in both Umatilla and Morrow coun
ties. A similar vain of thought was
expressed by the other speakers from
No one was present to speak for
Umatilla, and likewise the "lllg But

HAS FINE RECORD
Mri. L. H. Hadley, formerly of
Hardman, now of 'Boardman wajere
the ii making her home for tha win
ter, has a One record a a volunteer
Red Crosa knitter, and below wa
quote from a letter she hai written
to Mrs. Lillian Cochran, chairman
of the Morrow County chapter, who
has called for volunteers again that
sweaters might be provided for the
disabled veterans of the late war,
who are unable to buy them. The
letter of Mrs. Hadley follows:
"Mrs. Lillian Cochran, Dear Mad
am: Seeing your advertisement for
knitters in the last issue of The
Gazette-Times, asking help for dis
abled veterans. I am asking you to
send the wool, I am 75 years old but
am glad to help in any way 1 can
those who have offered so much for
our country. I was a Red Cross knit
ter during the war. Seventy-eight
was the number of sweaters I knit for
the R. C. Send at once to L. M. Had
ley, Boardman, Ore."
Chairman Cochran wants to know
who can beat thia reeord, and ia proud
that Mrs. Hadley belongs to the Mor
row county chapter.
Sweaters are one of tha very few
articles, that the government does
not furnish to the men in the hos
pitals. It looks to the Red Cross,
which regards .its first duty service
to the veteran, to supply this need.
Red Cross workers at government
hospitals attest the want of sweat-
on and many pathetic instances of
this need are encountered almost
daily. In some sections a majority of
the men arriving at hospitals apply
ing for admission have only the few
clothes they are wearing. Tubercu
losis patients are particularly in
need of sweaters. In nearly every
instance the treatment consists In
keeping the veteran outdoors all the
time. Even the bedridden man must
be kept outdoors where wholesome
air ia the doctor's surest therapy in
combatting the scourge which, in the
case of nearly every veteran, is di
rectly traceable to the rigors and ex
posure of his war service.
Will you not volunteer to help fur
nish the quota called for from the
Morrow County chapter? Send in for

Visitors Surpass in Passing Game
While Locals Are Best
Before a good sized crowd on Ro

Heppner high school football teams
played to a 6-6 tie. The Condon lads
made their counters with two place
kicks while Heppner gained hers on
Condon, receiving on the first kick
off, opened up with an aerial attack
which carried them to Heppner's 20
yard line. On being held three downs
without making yardage, they made
their first place kick. . The second
came in the last quarter, when again
after . threatening Heppner's goal,
Condon was forced to place kick in
order to score.
Heppner's touchdown came in the
third quarter, when on receiving Con
don'a kickoff, Paul Aiken, fullback, re
turned the ball to mid-field, from
where it was taken on straight line
bucks and end runs for a touchdown.
A quarterback wedge play in which
Crocket Sprouls carried the ball was
used to put it across Condon's goal
line. Heppner failed to convert.
K special credit is due Jim Stbut,
plunging half, for yardage gained for
Heppner, and Gene Doherty, center,
and Elmer Bucknum, end, for work
on defense. Bucknum intercepted a
Condon forward pass in the last quar

Heppner a beautiful chance to score,
but the opportunity waa lost when

a pep rally. There was a good turn
out and everybody seemed to have
the old spirit of Heppner high. The
absence of Duck Lee, the yell leader,
caused a few blunders, but on the

going through the show a mad rush
was made for the hillside where the
bonfire flames were rolling and leap-1

GETS BIG BUCK.
Lester Doolittle came in Friday
with a fine buck that. he captured
about noon on that day. The animal
was a fine speciman, weighing 200
pounds dressed. We can vouch for
this splendid piece of meat, for Les
ter remembered the Gazette-Times
force with a big hunk upon which we
feasted in proper style.

Business Is Good.

Pity Poor New York.

Commercial business in cities is

New Yorkers shouldn't forget that
if they pay $500,000,000, it ia because
forty-seven other states send all their
wealth to New York banks, spend mil
lions in New York shops and hotels,
and allow New York's high finance to
tap with, its corporations and its in
terlocking ownerships the sources of
wealth all over the United States.
Since New York gets the income,
it should be cantent to pay the tax.
"President Coolidge will leave the
coal situation for the present to Con
gress and hopes there will be no prof
iteering in the meantime." So reads
That is a large hope, for "in the
meantime' many dealers have raised
the price fifty cents a ton. With the
public, panic-stricken, rushing to buy
that means comfortable profiteering.
Mrs. Elsie Eaton Newton, Ohio
lady, found herself facing the empti
ness of life, with her two daughters
married. Many ladies would have sat
down to have a good cry. Mrs. New
ton went to Marietta College, worked
hard, got her A. B. degree, with her
two grandchildren sitting in the audi- .
ence, to cheer.
Now she is Dean of Women in Ma
rietta College,. and happy.
There is no life emptiness, except
in the brain. Keep that busy and life
is all right, even if your daughters
are named' and your husband dead.
The next generation will read about
"the navy patrolling the route," to
save the fliers if necessary, and that
will seem as strange as to send an
automobile with a carrier pigeon in
ease it should fall down.
Mr. Kinkie, in New York, to prove
gratitude for the recovery of his son,
supposed to be hopelessly ill, will
build a 65-story building, partly re
ligious, partly commercial, made up
of a church and a hotel, with 4,500
bedrooms. Ten per cent of profits
will go to missionary work, looked
after by the son. The father will
look after the profits.
The dining room will hold 2,000
in the tallest building, thus far, in
the United States.
, This religious building contrasts
interestingly with the old sinful
Tower of Babel, which probably was
about one-half the proposed height of
this 65-story hotel.
The great Bernard Shaw, in a mood
of unusual but accurate humility, says
the world a thousand years hence will
know nothing about him except that
the great French sculptor Rodin, once
made a bust of Shaw, biographical
dictionaries will contain this:
"Shaw, Bernard; subject of a bust,
by Rodin; otherwise unknown.'
Even that's an overstatement, for
in a thousand years Rodin won't be
remembered any more than Shaw.
Rodin in art, 1000 years from now
will be as important as Kipling In
literature or Shaw in philosophy.
After war broke out, the Ciar put
Russia on a cold water basis, stop
ping the sale of vodka absolutely.
This column then suggested that
absence of whiskey would mean more
cold thinking by Russians, and that
one result of such thinking would be
the absence of the Czar. That proph
ecy was fulfilled.
Now Bolshevism restores vodka to
its old alcoholic power about forty
