1930 CITYTAX BILL
Proposed Budget Shows
$3,273 Saving; Council
' Taxpayers of Heppner will exper
ience a cut In their tax bill for city
purposes next year If the budget
submitted by the city budget com
mittee Monday evening is adopted.
The proposed budget for 1930 calls
for $9,177 to be raised by taxation
as against $12,450, the amount rais
ed in 1929, a decrease of $3,273. The
proposed budget, a copy of which
appears in this issue of the Gazette
Times, will be voted upon for ap
proval at the December meeting of
the city council, Monday evening,
December 2, at 7:30 p. m.
Acting on the tax levying board
with the council are Jas. G. Thom
son, chairman, M. D. Clark and
D. A. Wilson.
But one material slice was made
in the proposed budget from that
in effect for 1929. This appears In
the Item of "maintenance and
bridges," where $3000 was lopped off
due to the fact that the city was up
against building several bridges this
year that have been completed, and
such a large sum is not needed for
the purpose next year. An increase
under the items "interest" and
"bond redemption" was necessitated
because of a larger slice of bonds
coming due In 1930, as well as an
increased Interest payment This
is for the retirement of city water
bonds which are on a serial basis
with a block of the bonds retired
each year. An increase of $1,125
over 1929 is made in these items
combined. An item of $550 which
appeared In the 1929 budget for
'.'gravel improvements and sprinkl
ing streets" was eliminated from
the proposed budget, while a new
Item of $900 under "night watch
A balance on hand in the general
fund of $994 appears in the budget
for 1930, also another Item of re
ceipts as the amount expected to be
received from the county as the
city's apportionment of the general
road levy of $1100.
Besides the transaction of routine
business, the council gave N D. Bai
ley a temporary permit of Bix
months for the placing of a wood
and canvas structure on lower Main
street They also ordered the re
moval of a structure of like nature
next to the Elks building which is
declared to be a fire menace, and
for the placement of which a per
mit had never been granted.
MR. NOTSON ENJOYS TRIP.
District Attorney Samuel E. Not
son arrived home on last Thursday
afternoon from his trip to Memphis,
Tenn., where he went to attend the
convention of attorney generals and
district attorneys assembled in that
city during the meeting of the Am
erican Bar association. Attorney
General Van Winkle of Oregon was
also in attendance at this meeting,
and It so happened that Mr. Notson
was the only district attorney from
this state that was able to attend.
It was supposed that members rep
resenting President Hoover's anti
crime commission would meet with
the attorney generals and district
attorneys, but nono of them appear
ed, causing no little disappointment,
as well as depriving the olllclals
gathered from all over the country
of the valuable discussion that
doubtless would have resulted from
their attendance. However, Mr.
Notson received much of value from
the convention and was well repaid
for the time spent in making the
journey to Memphis.
On the way south he enjoyed
meeting with a large number of his
near relatives who gathered at the
home of his sister at Hamburg,
Iowa. His son Lee Notson and wife
were there, as well as all brothers
and sisters with the exception of
two brothers who were not able to
reach Hamburg at this time. Be
sides members of his own family,
some of the relatives of Mrs. Notson
came and there was a very large
gathering at the old home of Mrs.
Notson's parents on the Saturday
before he had to go on to Memphis,
and a great dinner was enjoyed.
Weather conditions in the main
were Ideal, though rain was quite
prevalent as Mr. Notson got farth
er south. Returning home he came
through Kentucky and had a visit
with Charles and Margaret, whom
he found to be getting along fine.

High School Has New
by Student Body.
A keener zest will be put Into
studies at Heppner High school
through the use of moving pictures,
complete equipment for which has
been Installed with the arrival of
one of the very latest types of pro
jecting machines Saturday morning.
The equipment was contracted for
by the student body and will be
paid for from student body funds.
"The school has no Intention of
competing with the local theater,
declared Jas. M. Burgess, superin
tendent as the equipment will be
used almost entirely in connection
with class work, especially in the
study of history, literature, science
A wide range of educational films
is available to the school from Ore
gon State college, University of Ore
gon, the U. S. department of com
merce and the Yale University
press. Among those to be shown
will be the "Chronicles of America,"
a series of pictures put out by the
Yale press depicting the history of
America along various lines. This
is the best series of educational
pictures, Mr. Burgess asserted, that
it has been his privilege to see.
The pictures will be shown in the
auditorium-gymnasium where the
new machine was successfully tried
out Saturday afternoon. A modern,
fire-proof projecting room was built
into the building at the time it waB
constructed, the school management
then having in sight the acquire
ment of such equipment as has been
installed. The late type machine,
which will project standard size
films, uses an incandescent lamp in
stead of the arc light throws very
clear pictures, and is automatic. A
big slivered screen is installed as
part of the equipment this being
the same type as used by commer
cial show houses.
The student body does not expect
to profit by the showing of moving
pictures, is Mr. Burgess' assertion,
but the equipment will be paid for
from other regular sources of in
come, such as student body fees,
athletic games, plays and other ac
tivities. Mr. Burgess Is elated with
the acquirement of the equipment
declaring it to be a great asset to
academic work as it will give stu
dents a greater Interest in their
studies through the further insight
thus made possible.

Levying Board Allows
$2400 for Health Nurse
The proposal for a health nurse
for Morrow county made to the
county tax levying board yesterday
by a committee from the Heppner
Lions club and other representative
interests, received favorable consid
eration, and if the proposed budget
is adopted $2400 will be allotted to
carry on this work in 1930. Jas. M.
Burgess, local superintendent of
schools and president of the Lions
club, who has been in close contact
with the need of a county health
nurse, headed the Lions club delega
tion. All members of the levying board
expressed their approval of the
move, the only drawback for a time
being the finding of available funds
without exceeding the six per cent
limitation. Those asking for the
county health nurse declared she
should be put on a full-time basis,
and the $2400 was allotted with this
end in view.
In discussion of the need of a
county health nurse at the Lions
club meeting Monday, It was the
concensus of opinion that there was
practically no argument against the
advisability of providing the same.
"Men are too prone to spend their
time and money looking to the wel
fare of their stock, while Ignoring
the health of their children," was
one statement made. Figures were
given showing where county health
nurses had saved their salaries sev
eral times over in one year by as
sisting in the correction of child
defects, which, had they not been
discovered, would have led to large
doctor bills aside from keeping the
affected children back in school. It
costs the taxpayers of school dis
trict No. 1 of Heppner $143 to edu
cate a pupil for one year. Each
year that a pupil is held back means
a duplication of this expense. Rec
ords show that a majority of fail
ures in school are due to some, or
many, physical defect Thus by
seeking out and correcting these
defects, the child is enabled to do
his work satisfactorily and thus re
lieve taxpayers of the expense of
This, it as pointed out, Is but one
example of many ways in which the
county health nurse work pays its
way. By preventing epidemics,
seeking out tuberculars in the early
stage, and innumerable other ser
vices, it was asserted the work is in
For the first time since the gov
ernmental action during the World
War, when all grains were handled
by a board headed by Julius Barnes,
the Federal government has step
ped Into the grain marketing situ
ation to aid farmers.
Ample federal funds were pledged
to the American farmers for the
purpose of stabilizing wheat prices
when the Farm Board, meeting in
Chicago, announced that It has put
$100,000,000 at the disposal of the
newly organized Farmers' National
Grain corporation, with the promise
that more will be asked of Congress
Prevailing wheat prices, based on
world, supply, are too low, in the
opinion of the Farm Board.
Scanning the drop In prices dur
ing the week, the board, in a state
ment issued by Chairman Legge,
expressed the belief that "this un
satisfactory price level is chiefly due
to the rapid or disorderly movement
which Is putting a large part of the
year's supply of wheat on the mar
ket within a short time."
Nearly half the present wheat
crop has been sold in one week, Mr.
"The unprecedented liquidation of
industrial stocks and shrinkage in
values within the last few days has
also had an effect on wheat values
which is entirely unwarranted and
wheat producers should not be forc
ed to sell on a market affected by
these conditions," the statement as
serted. The board announced that it had

Party of 24 Leaves for
Canyon City Tomorrow
to Meet Grant Court.
Leaving Heppner at 6 o'clock
sharp tomorrow morning, a delega
tion of 24 Heppner business men go
to Canyon City to appear before
the Grant county court In the inter
est of the Heppner-Ritter road and
the Heppner-Spray road. This step
is taken following action of the
Heppner Lions club endorsing such
a move. Paul M. Gemmell, chair
man of the Heppner-Spray road

road a reality, and is probably the
best posted authority on all angles
of the project The local men feel
fortunate in obtaining his company.
Three of the cars will make their
itinerary over the Heppner-Spray
road to the John Day highway and
thence into Canyon City, in order

Anxiety and suffering prevailed
during the days of the World War.
Then came the memorable date,
November 11, 1918, when the Arm
istice became effective. What a de
lirium of joy was experienced. The
fighting was over, the cause which
America championed was victorious,
and the speedy return of our lads
anticipated. Everyone was happy.
Then followed an unforgetable
event on the 11th of November in
a later year. An Unknown War
rior, selected from American sons,
was laid to rest in Arlington. From
what part of our great country did
he go forth to serve his land? No
one knows. East, West North,
South, solitary farm house, village
and city may alike think of him as
their own. He represents that num
ber who lie in unmarked graves;
and in a broader sense he repre
sents all who made the supreme sac
rifice in a ternfflc conflict Surely
Armistice Day is one of sacred
memories. It is a day for reflection
and the reverent expression of pa
triotism. 6:30, Young People's meeting.
