State Board Presents
Measure to Legislature
With Resolutions.
DISEASE COST GREAT
Greater Efficiency and Better Results
Looked for in Enactment
of New Law.
The Oregon State Board of Health
is sponsoring a bill before the pre
sent legislature "for an act to pro
vide for the creation and operation
of a department of public health in
the several counties of the state of
Oregon." Though the bill apparently
calls for increased state and county
expenditures, a checking of the fig
ures indicating economic loss by dis
ease and the figures denoting the cost
of proposed health service, will show
that the health service thus provided
would not have to decrease conta
gious and communicable diseases to
a great extent to pay for itself, and
that if total eradication were there
by accomplished the service would
prove a wise economic investment.
The following resolutions adopted by
the Oregon State Board of Health
were submitted to the legislature for
serious consideration in the hope that
immediate action would be taken:
Whereas, accurate official reports
from all counties in Oregon show a
steady average of 60, per cent of sick
ness and 40 per cent of deaths from
communicable diseases, which with
existing knowledge can and ought to
be prevented, more than one-half of
this sickness and these deaths occur
ring in persons in, or just approach
ing, the most productive period of
life, many of them young mothers
and fathers; and
Whereas, official reports of the
state show that one-third of the
school children of Oregon have such
physical defectB as render them un
fit for efficient work; and
Whereas, 90 per cent of these de
fects are shown to have been reme
diable by the application of simple
methods of preventive medicine; and
Whereas, many of these children
are definitely unfitted for effective
productive school work; and
Whereas, the economic condition
of the State demands that all its
affairs shall be conducted with the
strictest regard for economy and
efficiency and with the use of as few
offices and officers as can absolutely
do the necessary work; and
Whereas, most of the functions of
government in a democratic state
should be performed by the small
units of the people themselves and
under their immediate supervision;
and
Whereas, this can be done by con
solidating all existing activities in
the State performing health func
tions, and by codifying the health
law so that all their duties will be
imposed on central authority, in
the interest of both efficiency and
economy; now, therefore
Be It Resolved, that the following
law be submitted for adoption:
Be it enacted that a county health
department for the prevention and
control of epidemics and communi
cable disease, as may be determined
by the State Board, may be created,
established and maintained in and by
counties or districts of this State.
It is proposed that the State of
Oregon appropriate sufficient funds
not to exceed $2,600 per unit to stim
ulate the establishment of full-time
health units throughout the State of
Oregon.
The International Health Board to
appropriate a like amount, and the
county or district at least 60 per cent
of tho cost of maintaining the unit.
Budget for Full-Time County Health
Unit.

9. Contingent expenses 440
Total ?10,000
State of Oregon $2,600
I. H. B 2,600
County 6,000 $10,000
If these funds are not available
from other sources it is suggested
that a small tax on life insurance
premiums be made to enable the
Board to carry on a work which will
permanently benefit the policy hold
ers by obtnining better disease con
trol. A short discussion why this legis
lation is of necessity in this State is
enclosed. Also a copy of the law
which we trust will be given your
serious consideration.
It will take a considerable period of
time to make the service available to
the entire State and a small appropri
ation will undoubtedly be all that is
needed for this biennium.
Setting forth the economic cost of
certain communicable diseases In
Oregon for 1924-1925, the discussion
alluded to follows:
Improving Public Health.
One of the great functions of gov

health of the people, Within certain

CUHY
LOVING CUP TO
BE GIVEN FOR
CLASS DEBATES
Patron-Teacher Association Offers
Award in Contest for High
School Students.
In conformity With a practice start
ed in the fall of 1923, when the Patron-Teacher
Association offered to
the Heppner High school students a
silver loving cup to be awarded each
year for proficiency in debating, the
local high school is again alive, as in
the past, with enthusiasm and inter
est to that end. With the winning of
the cup will go the school champion
ship and points for the relative suc
cess in the contest, as provided by
the point system which was instituted
in the school last fall.
The cup will be awarded to that
class, freshman, sophomore, junior or
senior, which is declared the winner
in the series of interclass debates for
the yenr, as determined by the decis
ion of three judges selected from the
community.
The interclass debates will be com
posed of a series of four debates,
which have been arranged in the form
of a consolation contest. The teams
will draw for their opponent in their
first debate, all four teams appearing
in the first two debates. For example,
if the juniors draw the seniors, then
the freshmen will meet the sopho
mores. The winners of these first
two debates will then meet to deter
mine first and second places and the
losers of the first two debates will
meet to determine the third and
fourth places.
The contest will conform to very
definite rules and regulations provid
ed for tho contest. The contest is to
be handled through the direction of
the English teachers, the class ad
visers and the principal.
The class teams will be selected
from a list of five pupils submitted to
the principal by the English teacher
of each class, on the merits of pre
vious tryouts in each class. From
the list of five pupils submitted for
each class, a team consisting of three
members and two alternates will be
selected in a final check made by the
English teachers, the class advisers,
and the principal.
The debates will be under the su
pervision of their respective class
advisers and the English teachers.
Information on the debate subject can
be secured from any source whatso
ever, the opposing side, of course,
having the opportunity to challenge
the authority of any statement.
In order that each class be fairly
represented it is further stipulated
that the class debate teams must be
bonifide members of the class they
represent.
The debates wlil be judged upon
the basis of originality, delivery,
stage presence, argumentation, use of
English, and enunciation.
These interclass debates are pre
liminary to the selection of a school
team to represent Heppner High
school in the debate district - com
posed of Morrow, Gilliam, Wheeler,
and Umatilla counties. Heppner will
first meet either lone or Hermiston.
The winners of these schools will
then meet the winner of the Pendle-ton-McLaughlin
debate for the dis
trict championship. The district win
ner then has the right to enter the
state contest held at the University
of Oregon on May 22, 1927.
All patrons of the school, and those
interested in debating are cordially
invited to attend the school's inter
class debates. Although the exact
dates have not, as yet, been deter
mined for these debates, information
regarding it will be given out later.
It is thought, however, that the first
two debates will be held the first of
next week.'
K. L. Beach, Lexington,
Receives Serious Burns
Karl L. Beach, Lexington hardware
man, was very seriously burned about
the face on Monday from an explosion
of gasoline. Mr. Beach had taken an
afbestos torch and gone into the en
gine room of the water plant near his
store to warm up a part of the ma
chinery when the explosion occurred.
The engine room is a concrete struc
ture and Mr. Beach had shut the door
when he went in. The explosion
struck him mostly in the face and it
was hard to find the door and make
an exit. This he did, however, and
plunged into a snow bank near by and
extinguished the flames in his cloth
ing. Dr. McMurdo was immediately sum
moned from Heppner and found that
Mr. Beach had received no burns ex
cept on the face, but these were very
deep and serious. He also had, both
cars badly burned, and it has not de
veloped yet whether skin grafting
will be necessary. It is feared the
injuries received will disfigure Mr.
Beach, but his physician hopes this
will not be the case.

POMONA GRANGE
RECOMMENDS AT
IRRIGON MEETING
Eighth Grade Exams, Free Text
Books, Fee Policy, Touched
by Resolutions.
Morrow County District Pomona
Grange had a most successful meet
ing on January 8 at Irrigon, being
guests of Irrigon Grange.
The morning session was given en
tirely to business. The vacancy made
by resignation of the secretary was
filled by election of Grace A. Tyler
of Willows Grange No. 672.
Four resolutions submitted by' the
committee on resolutions, after being
duly discussed, were adopted as fol
lows: No. 1: Be it resolved that the Mor
row County District Pomona Grange
goes on record as being in favor of
free text books.
Also, be it resolved, that a copy of
this resolution be sent to our State
Master to be used when the free text
book question comes up before the
legislature at Salem.
Also, be it further resolved, that
a copy of this resolution be sent to
the local papers and Grange Bulletin.
No. 2: Be it resolved that Morrow
County District Pomona Grange is
strongly in favor of State Grange hav
ing "standing" grain insurance
against fire, as well as other insur
ance. No. 3: Whereas: It has come to
our attention that the questions for
final examinations submitted to pu
pils completing the elementary school
grades are such that some examina
tions are extremely easy, while per
haps at the following or other exam
inations, the questions are so difficult
us to cause an unusually large per
centage of failures. It seems that if
possible there should be secured a
greater uniformity in these questions
used in different examinations.
We believe, if practicable, these ex
amination questions should be pre
pared by a Board, made of competent
persons, who are familiar with ele
mentary grade work.
Therefore, be it resolved by the
Morrow County District Pomona
Grange that the State Superintendent
of Public Instruction be requested to
appoint a Board to be made up of
persons thoroughly familiar with' ele
mentary grade work and blessed with
much common noe. to prepare the
examination questions which are sub
mitted to the pupils of the state who
are completing the elementary grade
work.
Be it further resolved, that he be
requested to give consideration to an
improved and more scientific form of
tests for pupils finishing the elemen
tary grades, and bring them into gen
eral use as early as seems to him
practicable.
Be it further resolved that these
resolutions be sent to the local pa
pers and Grange Bulletin.
No. 4: Whereas, Morrow County
District Pomona Grange feels that
owing to the fact that so many fam
ilies having several members belong
ing to the Grange it would be impos
sible due to financial conditions for
them to continue in the Grange if
dues are increased;
Therefore, be it resolved that the
Morrow County District Pomona
Grange go on record as being strong
ly opposed to the raising of the sub
ordinate Grange dues for the purpose
of Grange extension work.
Be it further resolved, that we feel
that this extension work should be
financed by the Pomona Grange of
each county.
Be it further resolved, that a copy
of these resolutions be sent to the
State Grange, the Grange Bulletin
and all the subordinate Granges of
the county, asking them to take im
mediate action and report to the
State Master.
Submitted by resolutions commit

ZELLNER DRAWS GOOD CROWD.
Judging from the very hearty ap
plause given Zellner last evening as
he presented eaoh number on his pro
gram of impersonation, the large au
dience was well pleased, not to say
delighted with the entire program.
Zellner appeared at the Star theater
under the auspices of the Patron
Teacher association, and his program
is one of the best of its kind it has
ever been our pleasure to witness. In
fact we have never seen historical and
Bible characters so strikingly repro
duced as were those presented by
Zellner, and he proved himself a mas
ter in this phase of dramatic art. His
stage setting was also very appropri
ate and added much to the effective
.icss of the program.

Young gentlemen, it pays to save.
Even a little may be worth while.
Mr.-Couzens, asked to pay nine mil

saved $900 when he met Ford. That

sold his interest to Ford for thirty
million dollars. If he hadn't saved
the nine hundred dollars, he could
not have the Government suing him
for nine million dollars.
Moral: Save something, if only a

The Chicago Civic Opera company

The Metropolitan Opera in New
York will do likewise some day and
profit by it. Artists making talking

is valuable.
Meanwhile Mr. Kahn and his asso
ciates in New York's Metropolitan
Opera will make a good start in their
new opera house building, providing
excellent seats at reasonable prices,
from which the opera will be seen and
heard, as good for seeing and hearing
as those built for the exhibition of
pearls and diamonds.
Governor Smith of New York, is
now a candidate for the Democratic
nomination in 1928. He intimated it
semi-humorously in a recent address.
His followers in New York City en
ounced it vociferously at an en
thusiastic banquet.
Other Democrats that would like
the 1928 Democratic Presidential
nomination will find in Governor
Smith an opponent that understands
politics and the American people.
Dispatches from Boston describe
triple judicial killings in Charlestown
State Prison, just after midnight re
cently. Three young men passed from
the electric chair to another destina
tion for clubbing an old night watch
man to death.
Edward H. Heinlein was first to go.
As he walked to the electric chair, re
peating the words of a prayer, great
crowds gathered outside, automobile
horns were booming, photographers'
flashlights lighted up the crowd. And
at the rear exit from the prison an
other crowd was waiting to see the
three bodies carried out. A special
police force was obliged to fight the
deeply interested crowd.
Crowds that howled around the
French gillotine, or that tilted up
their gin bottles as they shouted en
couragement to murderers on the
British gallows, were not entirely
different from human beings of today.

Dentists warn women that exces

This disease which attacked soldiers

gums, causes bleeding.
However, if women want to smoke,
dentists won't stop them. This writer
tried it in vain, twenty-five years

makes their noses red, and makes
their moustaches grow. Still they
wouldn't stop.
FLAT TIRES

The most expensive car with the high

to suffer delay that is at the best in
