Mrt. Jeff Jones was In receipt of
of a letter from her nephew, Crock
et Sprouls, who at present is so
journing in the Orient, that their
party, composed of E. C. Amspoker,
Jag. Thomson and himself, will
have to cut their trip short, owing
to the quite serious Illness of Mr.
Amspoker. According to Crocket's
letter, they expected to leave Japan
on the 23rd of this month and would
arrive at Seattle about the 9th of
February. Mr. Amspoker was not
well when they left Heppner, and
it seems the sea voyage did not
prove as beneficial as was expected,
but he was not anxious to cut the
visit of the younger men short, and
was protesting the return some
twenty days sooner than the plans
of the tour called for.
Friday and Saturday there was
some- Indications of a Chinook and
a moderation in the weather. This
melted the snow to some extent and
caused it to settle, but none ran off.
Intermittent snow storms have been
the order since and the original
fall of the first of last week has
been added to until there is now a
good level foot of snow over the
Heppner country, and practically
the same over the entire county,
with the temperature hovering
around the zero mark much of the
time. Mighty fine winter weather,
and no need of complaint
W. P. Mahoney, president of the
Oregon Wool Growers association,
accompanied by Mrs. Mahoney, de
parted on Thursday night last by

they went on to Los Angeles for a

Phoenix, Arizona, where Mr. Ma
honey goes to attend the meeting
of the National Wool Growers as

the last three days of this month.

week, Rev. Brady, pastor of St Pat
rick's parish, announces services

of the roads leading out that way.
Heavy drifts of snow have made it
Impossible to get over many of the
country roads with the car.
Mr. and Mrs. Werner Rletmann
were visitors here on Friday from
their home near lone. Up to that
time there had been a heavy fall of
snow over the lone section, and this
has been somewhat augmented
since. Mr. Rletmann was pleased
by the covering of snow, as It will
be beneficial to crops.
Guy L. Drill, pastor of the Chris
tian church at Pendleton, who con
ducted a four weeks revival In the
Church of Christ at Heppner, de
parted on Monday for home. The

John Kilkenny was down from
the Hinton creek ranch Tuesday
forenoon. He has begun lambing
at the home ranch, and states that
about 100 lambs were dropped on
Monday, and from now on this will
be the order. Mr. Kilkenny was not
fearing the storm to any great ex
tent as be is well prepared to care
for the ewes and lambs In all kinds
of weather, and should it remain
dry, he will get through In good
shape. He laid in a supply of tents
and uses these in the lambing shed,
rinding this the best means of keep
ing the new born lambs warm; a
few head of ewes and lambs placed
inside the tent that has been bank
ed up to keep the cold out furnish
ed all the warmth that Is necessary.

Ralph Justus, In the city early
Tuesday from the Justus ranch up
Hinton creek, stated that in many
places the road was filled with drift
ed snow, and it was quite dimcult
to get through with a car. Up that
way the snow has been steadily pil
ing up, until there is now near 15
Inches on the level.
Mr. and Mrs. Reid Buselck and

GREAT INCREASE IN USE OF LIBRARY

Portland, Or. Higher education
In the state of Oregon has caused
but 1.7 percent of the tax Increase
in the state since 1920, and the
University of Oregon Itself has
caused but .4 percent Increase, It
has been revealed here, following
a statistical study made by experts
upon the request of alumni and
friends of Institutions. Those mak
ing the survey found that roads
and highways had occasioned the
heaviest increase, being responsi
ble for 67.7. The Investigators
pointed out that even though this
road program had cost considerable
money, the stat6 has reaped great
benefit from It
Similar benefit to the state would
accrue from Investing more In high
er education, It is declared by many.
Increasing enrollment In Institu
tions of higher iearnlDg, without
corresponding Increase In revenue,
has worked a hardship on them,
and unlesB this is corrected It Is
likely that many boys and girls of
Oregon will be denied educational
training that a progressive state
should give them.

Although ranking among the

dsnts, the present equipment of the

normal Institution ol this ilie, It
was found In a recent survey. This
Is due to the fact that the present
building was erected In 190S, when
enrollment was but 300 students,
and because since that time the In
come of tbt university has never
been such that funds could be
found for a new and larger struc
ture. "People ot Oregon should ht
proud of the fact that our students
realize the Importance ot books,
and they should be proud alio thai

Why we buy from Western Electric
It is the aim of the Bell System, of which this company is a
part, that anyone anywhere in the country may telephone to
anyone anywhere else, clearly and without delay. This is the
meaning of universal service. To provide it, the means of tele
phoning must be uniformly good.
All of the Bell System companies obtain most of their sup
plies from the Western Electric Company, which acts as the
manufacturing and purchasing department of the system. The
volume of business thus centralized, enables the Western Elec
tric Company to secure great economies in manufacturing, pur
chasing and distributing, which economies are reflected in its
prices to the BeU System and consequently in a lower cost of
telephone service to the public.
Western Electric Company's prices for telephone supplies to
the Bell System are materially lower than those of other sup
pliers. As a result of its arrangement with the Western Electric
Company, The Pacific Telephone and Telegraph Company
saves in price and service at least $3,000,000 a year. This is
important in keeping down costs to customers.
As an added protection to the public, the Western Electric
Company's main storehouses and distributing houses, placed at
strategic shipping points throughout the United States, con
stantly carry upward of $30,000 000 of supplies ready for ship
ment. These storehouses and stocks enable the Western Elec
tric Company to meet the needs of the country at times of
catastrophe regardless of the extent or location of the damage.
In Oregon, Western Electric keeps an average of 85 people
employed in furnishing and installing telephone equipment.
Our ideal is the same as that of the public we serve, the
most telephone service and the best, at the least cost to the user.
