Although several fairs have been
held there still seems to be some mis
understanding as to the use of the
fair funds, so a word of explanation
will be given. Oregon law provides
for a tax of 1-20 of a mill for fair
funds. This gives Morrow county
$600. One hundred and thirty dol
lars is used at Heppner at the wool
and grain show. The balance is used
for the North Morrow County fair.
This money can be used for premiums
only and can not be used for even a
telephone call or paper of pins. The
fair dance is given for the purpose
of raising funds for the printing, en
'ry tags, pins and other incidentals.
The members of the fair board -and
superintendents of the various de
partments and assistants, the judges,
all who help with the fair, do a con
siderable amount of woik and come
in for no remuneration and more or
less criticism. Anyone is entitled to
enter articles in the fair whether he
be a member of the fair board or not.
Lee Mead and C. H. Dillabough de
serve an unlimited amount of credit
for their zeal in working for the fair.
. A bad wreck occurred Saturday af
ternoon just below the overhead

skidded, colliding head-on with a
Buick. AU three cars were wrecked,

Calif. 243-811 license. The Columbia
was an Idaho car with an Oregon per
mit. That no one was killed was
miraculous, the woman in one car re

curve, a skidding of wheels, chaos!
