There's going to be a Rodeo. And
the Rodeo grounds will be held In
tact for use as an athletic field.
That's the answer to the oft' re
peated questions which have been
asked since last Friday when ru
mors were circulated that the
grounds were being turned over to
the government for use in con
structing the CCC camp.
The rumor was not entirely un
founded, as the council did consider
this course when it was learned
from a camp Inspector, in the city
the day before, that ground origin
ally specified would not be ade
quate. The council had agreed to
furnish ground for the site, and
Captain Flagel who had inspected
it before, said the ground contem
plated, lying adjacent to the Rodeo
field, would be adequate. His de
cision was based on specifications
allowing 30 feet between buildings,
however, and the later inspector
announced that 50 feet must be
given to compensate for local fire
When the original location was
made, C. W. McNamer agreed to let
the government have 100 feet off his
field lying just east of the city
ground. The later location, how
ever, moved the line over 300 feet
into his field, to which he objected.
It was then that the city dads con
sidered giving over the Rodeo field.
Citizens generally objected to
this procedure, and finally a lease
agreement was reached with Mr.
McNamer to procure the desired
land from his field. To meet the
terms of the lease, and to save the
Rodeo and athletic field, business
firms of the city contributed $150,
the city gave $150, the Rodeo asso
ciation $150 and the county gave

DRINKING TO EXCESS
New Law Replaces For
mer Control Measures
Which are Repealed.
BOXING BODY NAMED
L'se of Street Granted for 4-H Club
Fair; $150 Paid on Lease for
CCC Camp Ground.
It is no longer a crime to manu
facture, sell or consume intoxicating
liquor under the laws of the city of
Heppner, but it is a crime to be
found in a state of intoxication on
the streets, in the alleys, or in any
public place, or if creating a dis
turbance, on any private premises
within the city.
Action to this effect was taken
by the common council, with all
members present, Monday evening.
Emergency action of that body
wiped out all previous liquor reg
ulatory measures and substituted
in their stead the law conforming
to latest state regulations. The
manufacture and sale is now left
entirely to state and federal regu
lation, while consumption is placed
strictly upon indvidual responsi
bility. Under the new ordinance local po
lice are at liberty to pick up a
drunken person wherever found in
public, or on any private property,
even though it be the drunken per
son's own home, if that person be
creating a disturbance. And for
such arrests no complaint or war
rant is necessary.
The new law seta a penalty on
conviction of not less than $5 nor
more than $100 or 50 days in the
bastile. The new state law, which
recently went into effect, gives
state police and sheriffs the same
rights outside incorporated cities
and towns. In addition to other
penalties, a person found driving
while drunk is subject to revocation
of driver's license.
The council ordered payment of
interest on bonds, which interest
was defaulted at the last date of
payment, after hearing the quarter
ly report of the treasurer which
showed funds on hand to meet
Appointment of a boxing and
wrestling commission was ordered
and Mayor Smead appointed C. J.

was granted use of the street be
tween the fair pavilion and Tum-A-Lum
Lumber company in staging
the 4-H club fair in connection with
the Rodeo, August 22-23-24.
Mayor Smead instructed the
street committee, Councilmen Mc
Namer, Jones and Ferguson, to in
vestigate the matter of improve
ment of the Heppner flat road com
ing in the lower end of town, and
to report at the next meeting steps
which they deem most advisable to
have the road in condition for use
by wheat hauling time.
The sum of $150 was voted by the
council in special session Friday to
match $150 from the county and
$150 in donation from Heppner
business houses to lease two acres
of land adjacent to the Rodeo
grounda from C. W. McNamer, the
land to be used in constructing the
CCC camp. The lease was granted
for a two year period, $300 a year,
with $600 payable in advance.
Other business of Monday's ses
sion included payment of current
expense bills. Officers present were

What promised to be the dryest
June of record in Heppner, turned

reports Len L. Gilliam, government

Morrow County Woolgrowers
auxiliary meeting has been post
poned to Friday, July 12, to be held
at the Lucas Place, announces the
$200,000 Expenditure for
Flood Control Given
As Just Estimate.
PROPOSE FOUR DAMS
Adequate Protection Could be Giv
en; Reclamation Feature Not
Encouraging, Said. '
Indications are that the ball ia
rolling on Morrow county's flood
control project since application
was made last week.
Engineer Darr, in charge of the
second Oregon rivers and harbors
district, and Engineer Hostetter,
his assistant, were In the county
last week end investigating the
project and obtaining additional
data that the matter might be prop
erly presented before the army
board of engineers in Washington,
While not in position to make
any definite statements or prom
ises, the engineers said that on. the
showing of property losses alone
experienced from past floods, the
expenditure of $200,000 for a con
trol project seemed feasible. They
also believed that four dams prop
erly located would take the crest
off any future flood of proportion
equal to the largest experienced in
the past, and give adequate pro
tection to property in the Willow
creek and Rhea creek valleys. ,
The project calls for construction
of dams from the standpoint of
flood control alone. From all avail
able information the construction
of dams to conserve water for ir
rigation is deemed impractical due
to excessive declevity. The slope
of the bottom land along the
creeks is so pronounced, that to
obtain a basin of sufficient propor
tions to give an adequate supply of
water for irrigation dams would
have to be erected to an untenable
height There is also doubt that
sufficient water Is obtainable to fill
a basin of required size, should the
cost of dam construction be low
enough to keep the cost of water
rights within reason.
Under the flood control plan, nor
mal creek flows would pass through
the dams unmolested, and only in
case of excessively heavy flows
would the dams be used for holding
back the water.
Opinion of those who have been
working on the matter locally is
that chances of putting through
the flood control project are good.
They believe the showing on losses
of property and life by past floods
is irrefutable and that possible re
currence of such disasters is ever
imminent In addition, application
for the project is the first of its
kind since recent establishment of
the second district of which this
county is a part.
Not only is interest being shown
by the district engineer's office, but
Congressman Pierce is working on
the matter in Washington. There
is hope that the project will be
marked for "special handling."
