Plan Abandoned for Present.
! PROCLAMATION f
: VJPRING, with its glorious
bounty of growing things, is
i once again upon us, making !
the winter's accumulation of
I tin cans, ashes, garbage and
rubbish an eyesore and a
menace to the health and
happiness of our citizens. It ;
is not only fitting, but the
: personal and civic pride in- I
herent in mankind, should
: make it mandatory, for ev- i
5 eryone to clean his premises :
of all trash, dirt and filth at
I this time. :
Therefore, I, W. G. McCar-
ty, Mayor of the City of
Heppncr, in accordance with i
established custom, do here-
; by proclaim Monday, April I
18, 1932, CLEAN-UP DAY in
Heppner, and do hereby urge f
: all citizens to cooperate to
: the end that on that day all
property within the city will
be rid of all unsightly and
unseemly menaces to the i
health and happiness of our
people. All rubbish, trash, I
garbage, etc., in boxes, bar-
: rels, sacks or other contain- 5
ers, placed at the street curb
by morning of that day will i
I be picked up and hauled I
I away by trucks provided by

By order of the Common i
Council of the City of Hepp-
: ner, dated this 4th day of
A clean, attractive City Beautiful
is the objective sought by Mayor
McCarty and the city council in
setting Monday, April 18, as Clean
up Day In Heppner, when it is ex
pected that all property holders of
the city will have their premises in
ship-shape with rubbish, sacked or
barrelled, placed at the street curb
to be picked up by trucks provided
at city expense. This action was
taken by the council Monday eve
ning. Also made was a readjust
ment of water rates intended to
lighten the burden on users of wa
ter for irrigation and announce
ment of the abandonment of the
new city hall idea for the present
The clean-up day on April 18, to
be carried out in the customary
manner of past years, and the wa
ter rate readjustment are both
steps of the council to encourage
residents to improve their property
that all may have more sanitary
and more beautiful surroundings.
The opportunity is provided to take
advantage of springtime's invigor
ating weather to got grounds clean
ed, lawns and gardens started, and
to keep them growing throughout
the summer when lawns and gar
dens are greatly appreciated by ev
eryone. Mayor McCarty makes a special
appeal for cooperation in his proc
lamation displayed at the beginning
of this article.
.New Rates Explained.
In endorsing the readjustment of
water rates the water committee,
composed of Councilmen Anderson,
Goodman and Cox, signified that it
was the intention to encourage use
of water, for irrigating that lawns
and flowers might be kept growing
through the summer, but that it
was necessary to keep the revenue
because of the irreducible amount
up to approximately the same level
required to pay operations of the
water department and to meet In
terest payments and bond retire
ment, They proposed the new
schedule as being a more equitable
method of raising the required
money without penalizing those
who use the water purely for the
satisfaction of personal and civic
pride In the Improvement of their
The readjustment, authorized by
.the council, calls for increasing the
minimum rate 50 cents on the first
1000 gallons of water to business
and professional houses and offices,
making the rate $2.00, and reduces
the rate to residences from 15 cents
to 10 cents a 1000 gallons on each
1000 after the first 13,000 gallons.
The rate to residences now Is $1.50
for the first 1000, 50 cents a 1000
for the next 2000, 15 cents a 1000
for the next 10,000, and 10 cents a
1000 for ench 1000 gallons thereaf
ter. It was pointed out that while
each business and professional man
would pay 50 cents a month more
for water at his store or office, this
50 cents would pay for 5,000 gallons
more water to use for irrigating at
homo. It was estimated that the
average home uses 8,000 gallons a
month for domestic purposes, and
that 10,000 gallons more may be

GRADE TEACHER CHOSEN.
Edward F. Bloom, elected super
intendent of Heppner schools for
the coming school year, was in at
tendance at the school board meet
ing Tuesday evening, driving over
from Athena. He came to assist the
board in the selection of new teach
ers, which was the main business
of the evening. - Laurence E. Win
ter of Eugene, the announcement
of whose election to the position
of physical education instructor
was made in last week's issue of
the G. T., decided not to accept the
place, and this made it necessary
to choose another man. George
W. Mabee of Corvallis was elected,
the board at this time being assur
ed that Mr. Mabee would accept.
The position of teacher in the
grades, two places being open, was
only filled in part. Miss Juanita
Crawford of Richland, Oregon, be
ing elected to the 7th grade. The
other place vacant is the third
grade and the board expects to
come to a decision on this within
a few days.
Taxpayers of School District No.
1 will be interested to know that a
very substantial reduction in the
tax levy has been secured for the
coming year, the result of the cut
made in the budget. According to
Assesor Wells, this reduction In
millage over last year is exactly 25
per cent. What is equal to a ten
per cent reduction in teachers' sal
aries was secured in the budget by
doing away with the position of
principal in the high school. There
were also other cuts in overhead
expenses that brought the total
down to a basis of strict economy.

Presented by C. W. Smith, presi
dent as worthy of thorough con
sideration of the club was the mat
ter of barge transportation on the
Columbia river, news of late de
velopments of which was carried
in the daily press that morning.
The dispatch said that a Portland
company intended putting a new

and was contemplating setting up
trucking service in connection for
the purpose of carrying wheat into
Portland. The new boat will have

was cited the address of Mrs. Cor

Mrs. Pierce said the board had
acted on facts brought out by a
survey made by educational lead
ers of the country which showed
the per capita cost of higher edu
cation in Oregon to be higher than
in any other state in the United
States. It is the intention of the
board to bring the cost of higher
educaion down to an economical
basis by eliminating duplicated de
partments at the state college and
university, bringing them under one
head at either Eugene or Corvallis.
It is expected to have a chancellor
or president in charge of all the
higher educational institutions of
the state, including the normal
schools, with a sub-head in charge
of each institution. There will be
one dean for each school, though
different departments of the school
may be located at different places,
in order that the work in each
school may be properly correlated.
The board is also striving toward
greater democracy among students
of the state schools, Mrs. Pierce
