FDR MAIN STREET
City Dads Ask Closing of
Driveway, and Pass
All streets leading Into Main
street in Hopper are to be desig
nated "stop streets" for automobile
and truck traffic, according to ac
tion of the city council Monday
night, when Marshal Devin was
asked to order the signs and put
them in place. It is expected these
will appear within the next few
Numerous, collisions at inter
sections the last few months was
one of the main causes for this ac
tion being taken. The arrival of
wheat hauling season is another
factor. Loaded wheat trucks in
past years have come onto Main
street, particularly off Heppner hill,
at quite a high rate of speed, being
a constant menace to drivers in this
vicinity. Under the new ruling
these will be caused to come to a
stop before proceeding onto Main
J. J. Nys, city attorney, has been
authorized to draft an ordinance
for enforcement of the stop signs,
though the opinion is expressed that
this is unnecessary since a state
law provides that all streets, or
other thoroughfares, shall be so
posted and all vehicles compelled
to come to a complete stop before
entering on a state highway. Hepp
ner's Main street is a state highway,
being on the main trunk of the O.
W. highway. Fourteen signs are
necessary to post every avenue of
approach to Main street, according
to Mr. Devin.
The council also passed the radio
Interference control ordinance Mon
day. This provides that any elec
trical apparatus that broadcasts
radio interference shall be so
shielded as to eliminate the inter
ference. In behalf of their Interests
representatives of the Heppner Ra
dio club appeared before the coun
cil, and were active in getting the
ordinance passed. Similar ordin
ances to the one passed are in force
in a large number of towns and
cities and have proved effective In
eliminating radio interference. The
Pacillc Power and Light company,
in control of the local supply of
electricty, has given hearty cooper
ation elsewhere in eliminating in
terference arising from their lines,
and the company maintains a radio
expert who has charge of this work.
It Is expected they will cooperate
A parking ordinance, providing
for an hour parking limit on Main
street, came up for reading a sec
ond time and was tabled for the
time being. Members of the coun
cil are not quite sure that the ordin
ance In its present form is practical
and It may be amended or a new
ordinance drafted before being
passed. The Intent of this ordin
ance is to protect the merchants'
rights in having space In front of
their places of business to load and
unload freight, especially for con
venience In dealing with country
The council also ordered fencing
of the driveway off the highway
that cuts across the corner at the
schoolhouse. This is considered a
menace not only to trallic but to
school children as It now stands.
Discussion of some needed work
on bridges also claimed the atten
tion of the council Monday. The
bridge across Willow creek crossed
by the Heppner flat stock trail In
the lower end of the city has been
condemned, and if not fixed in the
near future will put wheatralscrs
of the north Heppner flat country
to a great disadvantage during the
wheat hauling season. This has
been kept in temporary repair for
the past year, but needs new con
crete abutments and new timbers
to put it in shape, according to. the
report of S. P. Devin, marshal.

LOCI NEWS ITEMS
District Attorney Notson and W.
T. Campbell motored over to La
Grande Monday morning In time to
attend a 9 o'clock breakfast of the
chamber of commerce of that city.
The occasion of the gathering was
the discussion of the Eastern Ore
gon state normal situation. Govern
or Patterson was pacing through
the city at that time on his way to
Enterprise to attend the meeting
of the stockmen's association, and
a large number of other prominent
men of the eastern Oregon district
were also there on the way to the
same meeting, and It was thought
proper to get them together on the
normal school question. There has
been delay in starting work on the
new school, and just from what
cause the La Granrip people are not
fully aware, no doubt feeling that
there was such a sentiment aroused
at the time of the selection of the
site on the part of other places that
desired the school, that it was bring
ing about a delay. It was clearly
manifested at the meeting Monday
morning, Mr. Notson thinks, that
no other section of the state is
"sore" over the selection of La
Grande, and the sentiment express
ed was such as to fully demonstrate
to the La Grande people that the
entire Eastern Oregon country is
ready for the work on the new
school to proceed. Some other cause
for the delay must be found than
that suspected. Mr. Notson reports
the spirit of the meeting very fine,
and he received much applause
while he addressed the gathering
on general educational matters.

Camp Fire Girls Go
to Sandy on Monday
Eight girls, members of Heppner
Camp Fire groups, left on Monday
morning for the camp on Sandy,
near Bull Run station, where they
will remain for two weeks. Trans
portation for the girls was furnish
ed by Heppner Lodge of Elks, and
Frank Turner and George Thom
son used their cars In taking the
girls to the camp. Mrs. Turner and
Mrs. Thomson accompanied their
husbands. This work is being spon
sored this year by the American
Legion Auxiliary, and one of the
girls will have her expenses paid
by the unit here.
The girls attending are Daisy Al
bee, who goes as a delegate through
the auxiliary; Jennie Swindig, Beat
rice Thomson, Mary Thomson, Ma
rie Scrivner, Ruth Turner, Phylis
Jane Jones and Evelyn Swindig.
This camp is named Camp Nam
anau, a national Campflre camp
and the only national camp west of
Arizona. This means that it is un
der the direct charge of national
officers, some of whom will be there
to direct the work. The girls will
be given a regular course of study
and the different branches will have
experts in charge. Under direction
of an Instructor from U. of O. the
girls will receive lessons In swim
ming, and others will teach nature
study along with other phases of
the work. Seven girls will be as
signed to a cottage and each cot
tage will have a councillor to be
with the girls.
DISCUSSES LICENSE BILLS.
Editor Gazette Times:
There seems to be much misun
derstanding in regard to the effect
of the proposed bills changing the
license fees for motor vehicles. Peo
ple should be careful to look into
these measures before voting upon
The so-called $3.00 license fee bill,
if enacted, will stop further exten
sion of the state road program. It
will also deprive the counties of
their share of the fees. The main
tenance of the highways will be
suspended and the roads will soon
be in ruins. The automobiles will
be placed on the assessment rolls
and assessed as personal property,
so the owners will not save much,
if anything, by the change, but the
property tax can not be used on the
road program. The state, in order
to pay the principal and interest on
the road bonds, will exact more
money from the counties. The
counties will not be able to meet
this unless they exceed the six per
cent limitation, which can be done
only by a vote of the people, and
the expense of a special election
would be so much lost. In the event
the people refused to vote the in
crease, other enterprises carried on
by the county would suffer. The
most likely place, and in fact about
the only place, where the county
courts would make a cut in the
county activities would be in the
general road levy. This would
mean that all the county roads
would be allowed to run down. So,
that before the situation could be
properly adjusted an immense
amount of confusion and damage
The bills proposed by Mr. Dunne
do not go so far. One of these bills
would cut the license fee for pleas
ure cars one half. There would be
a decided cut in the fees for the
trucks and busses. This would crip
ple the road program very serious
ly if nothing was done to counter
act this result. The second Dunne
bill proposes an increase of the gas
oline tax. If this bill prevailed and
the bill cutting the license fees in
two also carried, the situation would
not be unfavorable. But the bills
are separate, so it is likely that the
bill cutting the fees may carry and
the gasoline tix bill fail. In that
event, the results would be disas
trous to the road program. If the
gasoline tax bill should carry and
the bill cutting the license fees
should fail, then the burden upon
the owners of motor vehicles would
be greater than at present. If the
measures had been combined, there
would have been no danger of ser
iously crippling the road program.
It is generally conceded that
something should be done to rem
edy the inequalities 'in the present
system, but it seems to me that the
whole procedure should be combin
ed in one measure. It seems to me
that the best course to pursue is to
defeat all three of the bills and try
to put through a measure which
will remedy the inequalities of the
present system. Let us be sure we
are right, and then go ahead.
The writer does not own an auto
mobile, but he has devoted much
time to the road program and does
not want to see a mistake made.

Claude G. Bowers' Key
Note Speech Causes
Written Especially for Heppner
By ROBERT FULLER
Through Autocaster Service
In the heat of a scorching Texas
sun, the Democratic National Con
vention foregathered here to define
the party policies and select their
standard bearers. The session at
which Claude G. Bowers, of Indiana
and New York, was to deliver his
keynote address was postponed un
til an evening hour, so that more
people might have the opportunity
of listening in to the speech over
the radio. The speech of Bowers
had all the ferocity and heat of the
Texas sun. The thin figure of the
editorial writer and historian
swayed the convention hall with the
power and clarity of his utterances.
The invective he poured on the op
posing party was vehement and
The speech aroused an exuberant
demonstration. For twelve minutes
delegates from North, South, East
and West followed in a thrilling pa
rade, the banner of North Dakota.
It was a delirious march in response
to Bowers' talk on "the tragedy of

privilege for the farmer," said Bow
ers, "but we do demand that the
hand of privilege shall be taken out
of the farmer's pocket and oft the

and started the parade, which be
came a stampede. There was an
other wild demonstration, but one
not quite as big, when Bowers paid
tribute to the memory of Woodrow
Bowers assailed the Hamiltonian
form of government and called for
Democratic legions to battle under
the Jeffersonian banner. His thrill
ing talk closed as follows:
"In this convention we close de
bate and grasp the sword. The
time has come. The battle hour has
struck. Then to your tents, O Is
rael!" Bowers' speech took ne hour. It
was an exciting, thrilling, closely
packed sixty minutes!
The first early session of the con
vention showed that Houston had
built in 64 days what is perhaps the
most magnificent structure ever to
house a National convention. An
elaborate ventilating system kept
the convention hall cool during the
hottest onslaughts of the sun.
Clem Shaver, who called the con-'
vention to order, had a hard time
getting it to obey. Excitement
reigned from the minute the con
vention opened its doors and came

possible for millions of persons from
coast to coast and border to border
to hear the thrilling keynote speech
of Claude G. Bowers.
