HEPPNER, OREGON, THURSDAY, Dec. 28, 1933 Subscription $2.00 a Year 1tmesi COUNTY ASKED S50 FOR FLOOD RELIEF Red Cross Committee Lays Plans for Drive Immediately. NEED HELD GREAT Cowlitz County Sufferers Face Hun ger and Sickness; All Commu nities Urged to Cooperate. Determination was expressed at a special meeting of the executive committee of the county Red Cross chapter that Morrow county should not be found wanting in responding to the Pacific Coast chapter's call for aid for flood sufferers in Cow litz county, Washington. This coun ty was asked for $50 to help the many whose homes have been re cently inundated by water, and who have been left homeless, faced by cold, hunger and sickness. The executive committee outlined plans for staging a drive post-haste over the county, expressing confi dence that Morrow county would respond readily and willingly in this emergency. . The Heppner Lions club offered assistance in helping with the solic itation of funds within the city, and it was voted to ask the assistance of the Business and Professional Womens club also. Mrs. Harold Case, secretary, was instructed to write a representative of each of the outlying communities, urging them to respond. The Red Cross, with its establish ed reputation of being first on the ground with succor in times of dis tress, is now actively giving relief in the flood stricken areas of Ore gon and Washington. Organized and equipped to give relief in the most efficient manner possible, the great humanitarian agency can function only so far as funds are provided to keep the machinery moving, and its sole source of rev enue is the contributions of the American public. While the annual roll call was but recently completed and Morrow county proved its loyalty by signing up a membership of more than its quota of 150 members, sufficient funds are not raised in this man ner to meet the emergencies that arise, as a large part of the money is left with the local chapters to carry on local relief work. It was shown at the meeting yes terday that while the county chap ter received some $150 from the roll call Just completed, the demands being made upon it locally are too great to risk sacrificing the fund. It is the Red Cross policy to raise money for each contingency as the contingency arises, based on appar ent needs, because there is no way of anticipating what the calamities of the future may be. And it is not the Red Cross itself, but the needs and suffering of humanity, now calling for help through those local volunteer workers who give both of their time and money that those needs and suffering may be alleviat ed. Whether it be a dime or dollar, the solicitors will welcome your contribution. U.S.D.A. Reaches Out for Third 0. S. C. Specialist Corvallls H. P.

At the conclusion of the program the small children were delighted by the appearance of San ta Claus who had a package of can dy and nuts for everyone. The fall of snow has been enjoyed by everyone.

HIGHWAY IS GLAZED Heavy Wind Takes Toll of Wheat; Freezing Temperature Exper ienced; Kiddles Enjoy Sport While death and destruction in ravaging water is told in news from the Washington and Oregon coast country, Morrow county rests se renely under its first blanket of snow with the temperature gener ally hanging at or near the freez ing point The snow and frozen wa ter have glazed the Oregon-Washington highway with ice, making travel a bit skiddish, but only a few minor accidents have resulted. The snow came too late to pre vent large blows in several wheat fields where the wheat was literally blown out by the roots by the heavy winds of last week. Among those who suffered large losses from this source are reported George White, Myles Martin and S. J. Devine of Lexington. The fall of snow, starting early Sunday morning was heaviest tow ard the north end of the county, re ports indicate, with no new snow In the Blue mountains to the south yesterday to as much as seven inches at the Leo Gorger farm in the north Lexington section. The fall at Heppner was two inches. Farmers generally welcome the snow as insurance to the growing grain against a heavy freeze, should such a freeze come. Sheepmen in the lower country are not so well pleased as the snow has forced them to feed flocks in feed-lots for the first time this season. They are not complaining, however, as the sea son has treated them unusually well. The snow came in time to give the county a white Christmas, lent much to the spirit of that oc casion and brought especial joy to the hearts of kiddies who have taken advantage of the opportunity to get their sleds rvo action and to enjoy some real winter sports. COUNTIES TO HAVE OWN ASSOCIATION Corn - Hog Adjustment Program Now Outlined for Oregon; Figures Compiled. Hog raisers in any county In Or egon will have opportunity to form their own hog production control association and sign up for cash benefits under the national corn-hog adjustment program, according to plans laid by members of the O. S. C. extension service, who have been given the task of conducting the educational campaign in this state. Growers meetings will be announc ed soon by county agents. Regional associations were first contemplated for counties with small hog production but since it is learned that the corn-hog contracts are comparatively simple it is be lieved that even a county with only a half dozen growers can form its own association with less overhead expense and inconvenience. Corn producers, of course, who care to join in the plan will be in the same associations. Census reports of 1930 credit Mor row county with a total hog produc tion of 1990 head, and corn produc tion of 275 acres, out of a state total of 224,539 hogs and 63,116 acres of corn. Oregon crop observers are of the opinion that these state totals are considerably higher now, and that possibly most county totals are up as well. Though this would give Oregon hog raisers a theoretical allotment of between 175,000 and 200.000 hogs and benefit payments at $5 a head of just under a million dollars, ac tual benefits could not be nearly that high because of the minimum limits set for participation. riffln)t ritlincrfl hnvo honn r-n- ceived by the Oregon extension ser- vice setting the minimum limit for joining the plan at 10 acres of corn or three litters of pigs a year, or both. Silage and soiling crop corn is included. Many believe that be tween 65 and 75 per cent of the hogs raised in Oregon are on farms where less than three litters a year are produced. A farmer qualifying under either the corn or the hog provisions can join for that one crop, though if he qualifies for both he must join for both. Reduction of at least 20 per cent In corn acreage and 25 per cent in hog production is required in re turn for rent payments on the corn land retired and cash benefits of $5 a head on the allotment of 75 per cent of past average annual hog production. ELKS MEET TONIGHT. Heppner lodge 358, B. P. O. Elks will meet at the lodge hall in reg ular session this evening. Business of importance is announced by J. O.

Club Extends Good Will; Birthdays Recognized; Holiday Visitors Give Talks. The Heppner Lions club on Tues day responded to a Red Cross S. O. S. for flood sufferers In western Washington by appointing a com mittee to offer assistance to the lo cal chapter In raising the $50 asked as the county quota. Reminded by W. W. Smead that Heppner should be among the first to appreciate suc cor in time of distress because of the generous relief supplied at the time of this city's flood catastrophe, the club's action was taken quickly upon presentation of the matter by M. L. Case on request from Joel R. Benton, chairman of the local chap ter. Mr. Case, S. E. Notson and Jas per Crawford were appointed to at tend the chapter meeting called at 2:30 o'clock yesterday afternoon. The club's holiday meeting drew one of the largest attendances of the year, and was made more than ordinarily bright by the visit of Miss Evelyn Humphreys, president and Mrs. Lucy E. Rodgers, who extend ed felicitations and good will from the Business and Professional Wo men's club, and offered cooperation in community service work. Mrs. Rodgers, Mr. Notson and C. W. Smith staged a stunt that added much pleasure to the meeting. An additional holiday atmosphere was given the meeting through the generosity of G. A. Bleakman who remembered his recent birthday to the club by the gift of a large and delicious birthday cake and a box of perfectos. The birthday of J. D. Cash was also recognized by the ciuo. , Visitors in Heppner for the holi days were among the guests pres ent who contributed to the pro gram. Roy A. Glasscock of Mt Vernon, an early resident of Hepp ner, recalled a few of the good old days here, and eloquently compli mented the club in its aims toward keeping the city lively and pro gressive. Edward Notson, superin tendent of schools at Elmira, Wn., told of the three new towns that have been builded in his section since construction began on the Grand Coulee project, signified his faith in continued development of the upper Columbia river, and re lated the latest developments in the Grand Coulee work which, he said, revealed that the big dam would have solid granite for a foundation. Ted McMurdo, O. S. C. student, said the college student body was not excited over the higher education administration squabble. The stu dents hardly discuss the matter, he said, and the apparent attitude is thatj it makes no difference what may be he outcome. Chas. W. Smith gave a short ac count of the meeting with the of ficials of the First National Bank of Portland held last week and told of the liklihood of that institution opening a branch here within a short time. Turned temporarily into a meet ing of the commercial club, those in attendance voted to accept an in vitation from the Alpine farm bu reau to stage a program there some time in February. The warm hos pitality and general good time af forded those who trekked to the Alpine community on such an occa sion once before called for expres sion from several of the members. The club will hold its next meet ing again on Tuesday as Monday is New Year's day.
