WAR ON HAWKS

Friday evening, Mrs. Latourell ac
companied Charlie on the hunt, and
rooted for him strong as one hawk
after another bit the dust. Twenty
seven of the hawks slain were
brought to town, and photographs
taken. Another exhibit of the grim
work of the hawks was a decapitat
ed little Chink, from which the
hawks had eaten all the meat away
from the side of one leg.
If the pheasants are to live and
propagate, and if Morrow county is
to become a truly great hunting
ground for game birds, the hawks
must go. So says Charlie after his
experience last week end.

before the official reception at Port

good time and were again fortun
ate in obtaining positions directly
in front of and close to the speak
ers' stand. They saw Mr. Roose
velt as he went onto the platform,
and Mr. Gordon was impressed par
ticularly by the difficulty with which
the president walked, due to the in
firm condition in which infantile
paralysis had left his legs.
This physical handicap seemed to
make all the more forceful and
sincere the president's words as he
talked of the great development
taking place on the Columbia. Mr.
Gordon said the president's appar
ent thorough understanding of the
geography of the country and de
tails of the big Bonneville dam
construction was nothing less than
amazing, indicating to him that the

A MODERN BANK
In 1865, The First National Bank of Portland
brought to the Oregon country its first national
banking facilities. To obtain the security and
services of The First National Bank of Portland,
Heppner pioneers had to travel days by horseback
or river boat to do business at Portland.
The First National Bank of Portland has grown
with Oregon, and today brings complete modern
banking facilities right to your own community.
We invite you to become better acquainted with
the bank that has served four generations of Ore
