Santa visited Heppner and left an
abundance of good cheer.
More than 250 kiddies were treated
at the community Christmas tree
sponsored by the churches and fra
ternal organizations of the city. San
ta was on hand at the fair pavilion
promptly at 3 o'clock and immediately
was surrounded by a mob of smiling,
expectant faces. The kiddies weren't
disappointed, either, for all received
a nice big sack of goodies. Trent
there was aplenty, and many children
unable to be present were remem
bered as well.
The community tree was but a fea
ture of the jolly Christmas enjoyed
here. The several churches held ap
propriate programs, besides dancing
and parties have been the order.
Christmas Eve the Elks entertained
the public at a dance in their hall

Board of Control Makes Award
on Recommndation of
The fight between 14 towns in
eastern Oregon, including Heppner,
for the location of the Eastern Ore
gon Tuberculosis hospital, establish
ment of which was authorized at the
last general election, was brought to
a close yesterday when the state
beard of control selected The Dalles'
ite. Selection of The Dalles was
made after all remaining contenders
had been eliminated because of some
inadequacy. Bond being the only oth
er strong claimant, it was announced.
The site at The Dalles was chosen
upon the recommendation of Dr. C.
G. Bellinger, superintendent of the
present state tuberculosis hospital,
and Jamison Marshall, institutional
secretary of the National Tuberculo

With regard to the claim of Bend
ar.d The Dalles the report of Bellin
ger and Marshall reads:
"In the Bend district the rock for

grading more difficult than on the
previously cultivated land at The
Dalles. The scenic beauty of imme
diate surroundings is excellent at
both sites. The Dalles site, however,

orama of the Columbia river crescent
and the pleasant country to the north,
cast and west.
"This more central location also
has a favorable effect on the cost of
material Bhipped at a Portland plus
cost, and on the time and expense
curtailed in other forms of transpor
tation. A clear title to The Dalles
site is offered without cost to the
"In accordance with these facts,
The Dalles site is recommended."
The act authorizing the establish
ment of a second tuberculosis hospi
tal in Oregon carried an appropria
tion of $100,000, and specified that the
institution should be located in east
ern Oregon. No cost will be attached
to The Dalles site.
All proposed sites for the institu
tion were viewed recently by the
board of control.

Word received at Heppner the first
of this week is to the effect that Mr.
and Mrs. Martin Reid, who were on
their way to Southern California, met
with an accident on the highway
north of Sacramento. Their car was
badly damaged and both Mr. Reid and
his wife received Bevere cuts and
Druiscs, though they were under no
necessity of going to the hospital.
The car failed to negotiate a sharp
curve in the road and landed against
a couple of small oak trees beside the
highway which brought the machine
to a very sudden stop. The mishap
caused several days of delay in the
ourney while repairs were being
made to both the machine and occu
pants. Attorney C. L. Swcek and family
returned on Tuesday from their visit
over Christmas with relatives in Eu
gene. It is noticed that the reporter
of the "Come and Go" column in the
Oregonian still remembers that Mr.
Sweek is one of Heppncr's city dads.
However, that is some distinction
when a man is away from home. Mr.
Sweck reports that they enjoyed their
trip and met with no particular in
convenience in travel except between

encountered the big slide and the one
