GUI TURNS TURTLE,
Four Young People Rid
ing in Coupe When It
Alonzo Edmundson, son of Mrs.
Mattie Huston, Is lying at Heppner
hospital under the care of three
physicians who express grave doubt
as to what the outcome will be of
Injuries he received on Saturday
evening when his coupe, In which
he and three others were riding, left
the highway and turned bottom side
up at a point just this side of Lex
ington, where the road makes a
rather sharp turn Young Edmund
son received serious Injuries about
the head and since the accident has
been In a semi-conscious condition,
but apparently holding his own, the
physicians stating that if he can
keep up as well for a few more days
there Is hope for his ultimate re
covery. Edmundson had his lower jaw
broken on the left side and in the
middle, and the upper left jaw also,
and the skull cracked at the base
of the brain. He also received nu
merous scalp cuts and minor in
juries. Other members of the party es
capd such serious Injuries, but were
nevertheless badly hurt. Eva Os
born, a niece of Mrs. Lorena Isom,
who was driving the car at the time,
lost three fingers of the left hand,
the thumb and little finger being
spared A goodly portion of the
hand went along with the fingers,
and that member was mangled In
such manner as to suggest that It
had been dragged over fine gravel
along the road side. Miss Osborn
also suffered some body cuts and
bruises and suffered much from
shock. She is being cared for at
the Heppner hospital, as Is also Wil
bur Flower, another member of the
party, who had his leg badly in
jured between the knee and ankle.
The flesh is crushed and torn, but
no bones were broken.
Miss Irene Yokum, the fourth
member of the party, was caught
underneath the car, while all the
others were thrown clear. She re
ceived a cut toe on one foot and
was thought not seriously hurt, but
It later developed that she was suf
fering from internal injuries, and
Bite has been confined to her bed at
the home of Mrs Huston since.
The young people had gone out
for just a short ride to Lexington or
a little further In the coupe of Mr.
Edmundson, Flower driving the
car, and It is reported that just be
fore the accident occurred, Miss Os
born had taken the wheel, and the
machine was evidently moving at a
much faster rate than she antici
pated, and going around the curve
the machine swerved suddenly to
the side of the highway, the front
wheel acting as a pivot on which It
turned bottom side up, with the car
facing toward Heppner. The car
was quite badly wrecked.
Dr. and Mrs. A. B. Gray were re
turning up the highway from Port
land, and they were hailed by Miss
Yocum, who had worked her way
out from under the wreck, and the
doctor brought the Injured young
folks to the hospital at Heppner,
where they received immediate at
tention at the hands of Drs. A. D.
McMurdo, A. H. Johnston and A.
The two young ladles and young
Flower were making their home
with Mrs. Mattie Huston at Cottage
Inn. The accident occurred about
8:30 Saturday evening. Upon receiv
ing word, Mrs. Huston rushed to the
hospital where she remained to help
until the Injured were cared for. She
was overcome by the shock, and has
been in bed by request of her doc
tor, much of the time since.

MEETING OF W. R. C.
The Woman's Rollef Corps will
hold a regular meeting on Wednes
day, Dec. 11, in Legion hall at 2:30
p. m. Every member Is urged to be
present as It will be the annual el
ection of officers. President
Oregon Co-Op Men Told
How to Get Value From
New Marketing Act.
That Oregon farmers have much
more to gain In benefits from the
federal farm board than merely fin-
nancial assistance to existing coop
erative marketing agencies, was the
concensus of opinion expressed fol
lowing the first visit of farm board
representatives to this state last
Charles S. Wilson, member of the
board, and James R. Howard, new
organization specialist for it spent
a full day In Portland In conference
with more than 135 officers nad lead
ers of Oregon cooperative market
ing associations called together by
the Oregon Cooperative council.
After hearing a report on the
present general condition of the 152
cooperative associations doing busi
ness In this state made by George
O. Gatlin, O.S.C. extension market
ing specialist, the board represen
tatives expressed the opinion that
Oregon growers have sound founda
tions laid for consolidating: small
units Into larger federations which
will control a major proportion of
the various commodities".
The farm board, it was brought
out is now in position to encourage
just such consolidations and yet in
sist that they are carried out along
sound lines of local farmer control.
Financial assistance from the farm
board is being reserved, except in
emergencies, to just such organiza
tions. "The farm board is trying to be
far more than a mere money-lend
ing organization, however," said Mr.
Wilson. "We hope that will prove
to be one of the minor activities In
the long run. We do hope to help
organize the marketing machinery
or the country bo soundly that it
will be largely self-sustaining, back
ed by the constant support of our
body rendered through many chna
nels other than financial."
That the state college extension
service will coordinate its work ful
ly with the plans and policies of the
farm board was announced by Paul
V. Maris, director, who offered the
services of his entire staff in aiding
to carry more complete Information
on marketing plans to the people of

SELECTION OF HEAD
Successor to Mr. Burgess
to be Chosen Later; Mr.
Poulson Will Act.
The city has been visited this
week by several school men, and a
number of applications have been
received by the board of directors
from others unable to meet with
them at this particular time. The
occasion for these visits and appli
cations Is the resignation of Super
intendent Burgess who goes to the
state superintendent's office at Sa
lem the first of the week to assume
his duties as assistant in that office,
in charge of the high school depart
ment Educators visiting Heppner
in person were H. M. Stiles of the
University of Oregon at Eugene,
Roy L. Skeen, at present superin
tendent of the school at Umatilla
and formerly at the head of the
lone school, and E. L. Cherry, for
many years superintendent at Her
miston but at present out of school
work. These gentlemen laid their
claims before the Bchool board, and
the matter was quite thoroughly
gone over in the meeting held by
the board Tuesday evening.
No action was taken looking to
the choosing of a superintendent at
the present time, it being the desire
of the board to give very careful
consideration to the matter before
coming to a decision. In the mean
time, Wm R. Poulson, high school
principal, will carry on, acting in
the capacity of temporary superin
tendent Mr. Poulson has been fill
ing this place during the absence
of Mr. Burgess and has the school
well in hand, so the board of di
rectors feel that he is capable of
handling the situation. The resig
nation of Mr. Burgess was formally
accepted by the board who express
ed extreme regret that he found It
necessary to leave the Heppner
school system at this time.

State to Get $2,000,000
From Added Gas Tax
Salem, Ore., Nov. 26. More than
$2,000,000 In additional revenue will
be collected by the state of Oregon
in 1930 as a result of the one cent
per gallon increase in the state tax
on gasoline and distillate sales,
bringing the total receipts from this
source to $7,052,054, according to a
tentative estimate made by Hal E.
Hoss, secretary of state. After Jan
uary 1, 1930, this tax will be four
cents per gallon on gasoline and
three and one-half cents on distil
late, the new rate being the first
change since the rise in 1923.
During the present year, with col
lections in for nine months and the
revenue for the remainder of the
year estimated, a total of $4,807,973
is anticipated for receipts during
1929. Based on the constantly In
creasing number of gallons of mo
tor vehicle fuel sold during the year,
an estimate has been fixed for 1930
on a gain of 10 per cent in sales.
This, taken in conjunction with the
one cent additional tax, is expected
to bring a total of $7,052,054 Into the
state's coffers. Refunds made to
purchasers who use gasoline or dis
tillate for agricultural or industrial
purposes .will run approximately
$520,801 and administrative expens
es will require $10,000, leaving a net
revenue for the state highway fund
of $6,521,253. To this may be added
the projected receipts from motor
vehicle fees and licenses of $5,605,
327, which will give the highway
tuna more than $12,000,000 during
All revenue accruing from the
tax on motor vehicle fuel is turned
over to the state highway fund to
be allocated by the state highway
commission in the construction and
maintenance of roads throughout
the state. No division is made di
rect to the counties from this source
as is the case in the receipts from
motor vehicle fees, which will net
the counties some $2,802,663 in 1930.
Reduction in automobile license
rates and a new appointment of
one-third of the receipts from motor
vehicle fees to counties would leave
the state highway fund with less
revenue proportionately than here
tofore were it not for the added tax
on gasoline, which was established
by the 1929 legislative assembly.

tion of the proposal that Bend lend
support to the project by R. J. Cara
ner, state senator from Spray, and
Geo. Bleakman, county commission
er. Bend interests represented at
the meeting, besides the court, were
the chamber of commerce. Lions
and Ki wauls clubs, and the press.
The sentiment of the Bend men
as expressed at the meeting, accord
ing to the report brought home, was
that they could see no reason why
that city should not boost for the
road. Individual promises of sup
port were had from several of the
Included in the junket organized
by P. M. Gemmell, chairman of the
Heppner-Spray road committee of
the Lions club, were Mr. Gemmell,
S. E. Notson, Geo. Bleakman, R. J.
Carsner, D. A. Wilson, Frank Tur
ner, Chas. Swindlg and Jasper
The two cars bearing the men
stopped at Mitchell and Prinevllle
on the way over, it being found at
these places that people were al
ready awake to the need of the road
and ready to boost for it One of
the cars stopped at Redmond on the
way home Sunday morning, and It
was found there, too, that interests
were ready to pull for the project
Both the Heppner cars went over
the present Heppner-Spray road go
ing to Bend and one returned this
way, while the other returned over
the Sherman highway. The Ser
vice creek cut-off was followed Into
Mitchell from the John Day high
way. The entire raod was found
to be in good condition, though on
the return journey Sunday evening
Mr. Gemmell's car, returning via
the Spray road, was equipped with
chains to make it up the dirt road
to the top of the Blue mountains as
the rain that afternoon had made
this portion of the road quite slick.
AH members of the party were
particularly impressed with the
magnificent scenery afforded by the
route. Two belts of fine pine tim
ber, one in the Blue mountains and
one in the Ochocos, will be tapped
by completion of the road. The
rim rocks of the John Day are a
type of beauty quite uncommon,
seen between the Blue and Ochoco
mountains while the immense Ocho
co dam and the irrigated country
below it Is of unusual interest The
latter Is traversed for several miles
before entering Prineville. On
leaving the Ochocos the picturesque
peaks of the Cascades form a mag
nificent background for the rolling
sage and juniper covered hinter
land, formed, geologists say, by the
breaking up of Mount Multnomah,
an immense peak which once exist
ed In the Cascades.
