Local Representatives at
State Highway Meeting
Get Promise of Work.
FEDERAL AID GIVEN
50,000 ot be Released at Once by
Bureau of Public Roads; Com
pletion Set at Two years.
Heppner Is to regain her own,
the lost trade territory of interior
Grant and Wheeler counties, and is
in line to be placed on a direct
through highway from California to
Spokane, according to the report of
the Morrow county court and repre
sentatives of the Heppner Commercial
club who attended the meeting of the
state highway commission in Port
land Tuesday. The report is that the
state highway commission together
with the Federal Bureau of Public
Roads has sanctioned the completion
of the Heppner-Spray road, and (hat
officials of the latter organization
have authorized $50,000, all the mon
ey nowavailabie from their funds, to
be immediately released for expendi
ture on this road, to be followed by
an additional $50,000 next year when
its appropriations have been recervud.
This move, it is 8Hid, puts the Heppner-Spray
road on the state highway
map, putting it in line for both state
and federal aid, the end to which
both the Heppner Commercial club
and the Morrow county court have
been working for several years. The
county has already authorized bonds
to the extent of $75,000 for this road.
That the aid of both the state and fcd;
eral commissions will be of an imme
diate nature is indicated by the action
of the Bureau of Public Roads, though
at present the state has no funds to
provide', and G. A. Bleakman, county
commissioner and a tireless exponent
of this road for years, says indica
tions are that it should be completed
within the next two years.
The Morrow county court, R. L.
Benge, judge, G, A. Bleakman and L.
P. Davidson, commissioners, together
with L. Van Marter, president, and
Chas. Thomson, representativos of
the Heppner Commercial club, pre
sented the proposition of the Heppner-Spray
road at the state highway
commission meeting in Portland Tues
day, which resulted in the action as
stated. The time was deemed right
for concerted action, following favor
able reports received from both the
state and federal road men at the
December meeting of the state com
mission. The uncompleted portion of the
Pendleton-Prineville cut-off, as that
portion of the highway has been
named in which Heppner is now in
tensely interested and of which the
Heppner-Spray road is a part, con
sists of 48 miles winding through one
of the most beautiful sections of Ore
gon. Twenty miles of this route is
impassable.. In the inaccessible sec
lions which would be benefitted by
construction of this highway thoro is
one line of twenty mileB of well de
veloped wheat farms and scattered
over the area are prosperous stock
ranches and the nucleus of a future
dairy district. All this reclaiming
has been done by forward-looking pio
neers who have invested their money
with the fuith that such a vast fer
tile country could not be long ig
nored by good roads legislators.
The proposed highway connects the
Old Oregon Trail at Pendleton with
The Dalles-California at Bend, and
then branches off from Bend to Eu
gent, opening up a new country as
well as creating direct commercial
connection from Walla Walla, Wash
ington, to Bend and Eugene and hence
to the Port of Portland. The high
way would aUo make accessible val
uable timber In the Blue mountains
which is now completely bottled up.
A preliminary investigation made
under the supervision of B, F. Beezley
of the public bureau of roads in 1922
gave a favorable report of the less
than five per cent grade and the nom
inal expenditure necessary for com
pletion of a single track earth road
with suitable turnouts at frequent
intervals. The report indicated the
approximate cost of each mile of road
as about $10,000, Including bridges.
Mr. Beezeley suggested in his report
that considerable additional develop
ment of the interior country would
result from any road improvement.
Considering the hardships that are
being faced by settlors who live in
this country, practically untouched
by either highway or railroad, with
the hope of some day having trans
portation facilities for their products,
and alio taking Into consideratiop
the difficulties that are cheerfully
borne yearly by hundreds of nimrods
and anglers who avail themselves of
the rich game resources of the moun
tains and Btrenms of Central Oregon,
the state would without doubt reap
a rich harvest from the nominal Bum
needed for construction of this im
portant branch of its highways.
Recognition by the Federal Govern
ment was to be expected, advocates of
the improved road believe. So far
Morrow county has never received any
government' aid whatsoever for high
way construction, although at least
125 square miles of tho Umatilla na
tional forest Ilea in Morrow county
on the line of the proposed improve
ment. It is also pointed out that Mor
row county has already expended
more than $100,000 on this project
from which It can derive no benefits
until this connecting road is built
Mrs. E. N.' Crawford
Answers Death's Call
At 7:30 this morning at the home
of her daughter, Mrs. Frank S. Par
ker, death came peacefully to Eliza
beth N. Crawford, who for the past
three weeks had been fighting off an
attack of pneumonia. The disease it
self had been conquered, but the
frail body was left weakened to such
an extent that there was not proper
response to the medical treatment,
and shortly after awakening from a
comparatively peaceful night, she was
seized by a heart attack, and the end
Arrangements for the funeral have
been made and the services will be
held at the Christian church on Sat
urday afternoon at 2:00, the pastor,
Milton W. Bower, officiating.
Elizabeth N. Crawford was a na
tive of the state of Oregon, having
been born near Brownsville on Janu
ary 28, 1849, and at the time of her
death was aged 76 years, 11 months
and 23 days. Her girlhood days Were
spent in the Willamette valley, as
were the first few years of her mar
ried life. ' She was married in Linn
county on Juno 11, 1867, to Jasper V.
Crawford, whose death occurred at
Heppner on December 10, 1915. They
removed to Waitsburg, Wash., about
the year 1870 and made that place
their home for long years, finally
coming to Heppner some 26 years
ago, and residing here continuously
since that time.
To this union ten children were
born, four of whom, are deceased.
Those remaining are Vawter Craw
ford and Mrs. F. S. Parker of Hepp
ner; Mrs. L. G. Atherton of Astoria;
Mrs. Chas. A. Jones of Pasco, Wash.;
Garfield Crawford of Fort Pierce,
Florida, and Otheo G. Crawford of
Joseph, Oregon. She leaves also two
brothers, Robert and Hugh Dunlap
of Prescott, Wash. ,
Being a native Oregonian and a
pioneer of this Eastern Oregon and
Eastern Washington section, Mrs.
Crawford was thoroughly schooled in
the hardships as well as the joys and
victories of pioneer conditions.. She
was a devoted wife and mother and
has been a benediction to her family
and friends in the declining years.
A devoted Christian and ever faithful
to her trust as such, she is called to
a well earned rest, having gone on
to those loved ones who have passed
