W. O. Baylew has the thanks of
the Gazette Times force for a fine
cut of deer meat. Mr. Bayless bag
ged a 12-point deer while out in the
mountains some days since. The ant
lers of this buck were more like those
of an elk and the horns caused some
considerable comment on the ( art of
those versed in such lore; they could
hardly account for this particular
style of head dress and it is not of
ten that such horns are found on a
mule deer. Each main prong con
tained 12 well defined points.
Jason Biddle, who was in the city
Wednesday for a short time, reports
a very heavy rain in the lower Rhea
creek section on Monday. No damage
resulted, however, and this downpour
only added more wetness to the sup
ply already in the ground. A spell
of settled weather right now would
help the farmers in getting seeding

the first of the week from Texas, hav

spend some time this week at other
points in the county.
Conductor Ebi reports that wheat
has been going out quite lively on
the Heppner branch, and up to the
end of the week 642 cars of the 1927
crop have gone out. This is about
a third of the crop so far, and had
the branch been able to get cars
a faster movement of the crop to
market couid have been made.

Local Health Officer
A Health Expert
State Board of Health.
The health officer should be regard
ed by his community as a specialist
in hygiene and disease prevention.
In order to meet the demands of his
position, his knowledge of disease
prevention should be broad and com
prehensive. His selection should be
made solely in regard to his fitness.
The health officer must have a tsrong
personality and must realize tlic great
significance of preventing disease.
He must not limit his services to the
amount he thinks he is paid for, but
should serve his community with an
unselfish devotion which will com
mand the admiration of all. His du
ties should not be the perfunctory
ones of a sanitary policeman, who is
often regarded by the public as a
worse menace than the disease for
which he quarantines. He should give
instructions in the methods to be
adopted in preventing the spread of
disease function which the family
physician too frequently assumes.
Misunderstandings frequently arise
from such an assumption. The at
attending phisician should seek the
health officer's advice in matters per
taining to health regulations in the
same spirit .in which he would seek
the advice of a consulting specialist
Through a better knowledge of dis
ease prevention, the work of th
health officer should impress itself
on the community in a manner suf
ficient to command the cooperation
and assistance of all the local socie
ties and organiiations. The health
officer should be prepared to answer
promptly and intelligently all ques
tions relative to the fundamental prin
ciples underlying disease prevention
when such advice is asked by the citi
zens of the community. His know
ledge of disease control should be
sufficient to enable him to meet ef
fpctunlly all out-breaks of disease
and, insofar as possible, to trace
them to their source.
The conditions under which most
health officers have been expected to
work and to produce results have been
most discouraging. They are under
paid and are given no financial re
sources for health activities; they are
appreciated by the community for
what they do not do, rather than for
efficient aervice. It is 'jnly by effi
ciency that he can gain the confidence
of the public and the respect of the
physicians. No matter how conscien
tious a health officer may be, his en
thusiasm soon wanes if he is con
scious that his work is not appreciat
ed. Indifference on the part cf phy
sicians will often defeat the health
The ideal health officer is a full-
time official who can create public
sentiment and an appreciation by
physicians of the great importance of
preventing disease. He will stimulate
the public to a better understanding
of and a deeper sympathy for public
health activities. The ideal health
officer's motto is "efficiency, first,
safety always, and courtesy to all."
The following legend placed on the
desk of the health officer might not
be inappropriate: .
"Come in without knocking, and
please go out the same way."

Ram is Three Times
THIS is the record made by the Hamp
shire which took the award of Grand
Champion Ram at the 1926 Pacific Inter
national Livestock Exposition. The other
two Grand Champions were won at the Am
erican Royal, and Chicago International
Shows. This achievement is typical of the
attainments of the animals exhibtied at the
Similar successes have been repeated many
times in the history of Pacific International,
indicating the importance breeders of high
types of animals attach to the West's own
great livestock epic. The 17th Annual Ex
position will be held at Portland October 29
to November 5, inclusive. The 1926 Grand
Champion will probably be exhibited again
