HEPPNER SPRAY ROAD
, Convinced That Now
. Is Time to Act.
Hardman Man Thinks Heppner Should
Assist Him at December Meeting
of State Highway Commission.
Editor Gazette Times:
Facing the possibility of being ac
cused of crankiness on the question
of the Heppner-Spray road, I am ven
turing again to call attention to the
importance of getting prompt action
on thia matter.
To the people of my community, the
completion of the Heppner-Hardman
market road is of primary importance,
and thia is a part of the link that will
ultimately connect us up with the
John Day highway near Spray. There
fore It seems proper to keep ham
mering away at one of the moBt im
portant pieces of highway construc
tion now before the people of Mor
It has been my privilege to attend
a number of meetings of the state
highway commission and to talk with
the commissioners and the men in
charge of the Bureau of Public Roads
of the forest service concerning the
connection between Hardman and
Spray. The last time I was down at
Portland, which was at the meeting
of the state highway commission
when the question of completion of
the Lena-Vinson gap in the O.-W.
highway was before them, I took oc
casion to call the commission's at
tention to the fact that I was not
through with them yet, although they
intimated that the completion of the
Oregon-Washington highway would
now possibly be all that Morrow coun
ty would ask for, I frankly stated to
Mr. Duby and the other members that
it was not all; that I wanted some
action' on this Heppner-Spray road
looking to getting it on the map. The
commissioners then" asked that I visit
the forest office and se what they
had to aay. I did this and made
plain to them that Morrow county
had already spent $76,000 on this
road leading out from Heppner; 11
miles are now hard surfaced and four
miles more graded. I thought it
time for some cooperation that the
road might be put on the map and
then the work of building be carried
on to completion just as rapidly as
possible. Phil Dater, engineer in
charge of this work for the forest
service seemed agreeable to this, and
the result was that an arrangement
has been made for the meeting of the
forest officials with the state high
way commission at their December
meeting, when it is possible some
very definite steps for getting this
road on the map will be taken
I am desirous of attending this
meeting, and expect to do so, with the
Idea in mind of pushing the mntter
just as hard as possible. I want
some assistance, and 1 think it is up
to the commercial club and business
interests of Heppner to also have a
delegation there. I have noted that
those counties getting what they
want from the highway commission
for other parts of the state, are al
ways on hand with a good delegation
of representative business men, and
it has a good effect. Just tho date
of this meeting I can not give at Iris
time, but will make this known Just
as soon as I can, and in ample time
for the Heppner business men to get
together and select a good live com
mittee to go to Portland to work with
me in getting this Hoppner-Spruy
road on the map, After that It will
not be a great while before the ac
tual construction of this important
link will be undertaken, I am sure.

DATES SET FOR
Moro Favored as Location for
. Economic Conference Which
Will Be Held in February.
Dates for the all eastern Oregon
economic conference on wheat have
been set for February 11, 12 and 13
by officials of the Oregon Agricul
tural College extension service and.
experiment station, who, with lead
ing farmers, are sponsoring the plan.
Decision to hold such a conference
was reached recently at a meeting in
Portland attended by college officials
and county agents from all grain
growing counties east of the moun
tains. As problems connected with
wheat raising ore fairly uniform in
the counties in tha district it was
thought that a joint conference this
winter would be opportune.
Place of meeting and details of the
conference are tentative pending fur
ther conferences with leading wheat
raisers throughout the district, the
advice of whom will be followed closu-
ly. Preliminary plans call for five
subcommittees, each headed by a
wheat raiser, to consider the ques
tion of world supply and demand,
farm management and land utiliza
tion, finance and credit: grading,
handling and transportation; tillage
and production practices.
Moro is favored by many as the log
ical meeting place for the conference,
though the opinions of more gowers
will be sought before this matter is
settled. E. R. Jackman, farm crops
specialist in tho extension service
and one of the men most familiar
with wheat growing conditions, will
spend the next two months in the
district concerned consulting with
growers and holding preliminary
meetings in preparation for the cen

construction work. While attention
will be directed principally to the
rock work, it is understood that grad
ing will also be pushed, as the high

kind of football, line smashing with
an occasional end run or forward pass

displayed a slight superiority in the
passing end of the game but at that
their overhead play came near losing
the game for them. Late in the third
quarter some "bad breaks and some
good football gave Lexington the ball
in Athena territory. A forward pass
from Nichols to White put the ball
on Athena's eight yard line. With
four downs to make eight yards the
Lexington field general elected to
forward pass. His heave fell into the
arms of Snider, Athena left half, who
raced the length of the field for an

Oct. 28th. The auxiliary greatly ap

that the money will be wisely spent
for the comfort of our disabled vet

ful stories of brave struggles of mo
thers to clothe their children and
keep them in school while the soldier

tention. The Child Welfare Commit
tee of the Auxiliary in Portland is
doing wonderful work with the lim
ited means at its command, its funds
consisting of donations from the
units throughout the state and the
annual sale of poppies. Its activities
range from helping with the rent,
supplying groceries and distributing
clothing to securing medical attention
for mothers and children. The fath

it had been put to immediate use.
With the twenty-five dollars which

Lack of Proper Precautions Given as
Cause of Prevalence of

Why is measles so common in Ore
gon? Largely because of our as
sumption that it is of minor import
ance, an inevitable accompaniment of
childhood. We carelessly expose well
children, and fail to isolate sick ones
Is the disease itself serious:? Yes,
and its complications, secondary In
fections are more so.
What are some of the complica
tions? Broncho-pneumonia, eye and
ear infection and lowered physical
resistance predisposing to tuberculo
sis. Is there a protective vaccine or ser
um? No, which makes the avoidance
of infection ever mone important.
At what time of year should we es
pecially guard against measles? From
the opening of school in the fall un
til late spring.
What age group 13 affected? More
than 70 per cent of deaths occur be
fore 5 years.
How is measles spread? By contact
with the discharges of an infected
person or with articles contaminated
by him. Discharges from the throat,
nose and mouth are extremely-dangerous.
At what stage of the disease is it
communicable? During the early
stages, sometimes before it is pos
sible to recognize the disease. This
makes control difficult.
What is the incubation period? The
length of time that elapses between
the entrance of the germ into the
body and the development of symp
toms. It varies from 7 to 21 days.
What are the first symptoms?
Those of a catarrhal cold. The eyes
are unusually sensitive to light.
When a child presents such symp
toms what is the safest thing to do?
Promptly isolate him until the exact
nature of the illness is determined.
This is always a wise course and
doubly so if there have been any
cases of measles in the community.
How can we prevent measles epi
demics in schools? By the school
teacher watching the chlidren closely
for the symptoms of a cold whenever
there is a case of measles in the
What should be done with a child
showing suspicious symptoms? He
should be excluded from school, iso
lated, and a physician called.
Are the children from an infected
household allowed in school? The
ones who have not had measles should
Why should measles be reported to
the health officer? Because it is the
duty of every law-abiding citizen to
report all communicable diseases in
order that susceptible children may
be given adequate protection.

dling of article from Tut-ankh-am-en's
tomb, the third sarcophagus, with
its layers of gold and wings of god
desses, is reached, with pictures of
the god Osiris, tho vulture goddess,
Nezkhebet, and the serpent goddess,
Butu, painted on the outsido. Soon
the face of the young Pharoah, dried
and shrunken through thousands of
years of waiting, will be looked upon
by men of this day.
All those gods and goddesses
could not save him from that. But
perhaps they helped him to the Egyp.
