CCC Construction Work
Beehive of Industry;
Ready August 1.
lum-A-Lum Has Large Crew Busy ;
Planer Works Day and Night;
Case of Measles Reported.
A bee hive of industry is Hepp
ner's CCC camp where each suc
ceeding day sees amazing progress
in the rise of buildings which are
expected to be ready for occupancy
by August 1. Already the large
mess hall is receiving the finishing
touches, and other buildings are ap
pearing in rapid order, though con
struction was started little more
than a week ago.
N. D. Bailey, chief of carpenters;
Lt. R. M. Hayes, officer in charge,
and Lt. E. A. Davis, assistant, are
three of the busiest men in Hepp
ner directing the large crew of car
penters and the 28 CCC helpers.
The work has entirely eliminated
unemployment in the city, what
with the large crew employed by
the Tum-A-Lum Lumber company
which has been working day and
night putting lumber on the ground.
The hum of the lumber company's
planer has not ceased, day or night,
since the work began.
The work is running ahead of
schedule, and so far all has run
smoothly with the single excep
tion of one case of measles. One
of the CCC boys contracted the
malady, but his condition is not ser
ious, and precautions were taken
to prevent its spread.

users, it was expected the reserve

Poisoning Rabbits Brings
Good Results, North End
Excellent results from rabbit
poisoning have been realized both
at Cecil and at Irrigon according
to Joe Belanger, county agent Ev
eryone who put out the poison has
reported good kills. The men who
have put out the poison are unani
mous in stating that more rabbits
are killed on the second and third
nights than the first night after
It is of course Impossible to tell
exactly haw many rabbits were
killed. Oscar Lundell, Cecil, esti
mates that 50 percent were killed
on his place. Frank Frederickson,
Irrigon, estimated 75 percent were
killed around his farm.
Summer poisoning admittedly is
not as effective as winter poisoning
on snow, but due to lack of snow
the past two winters very little
poisoning has been done. As a re
sult the rabbits have increased tre
mendously. The bait used for this summer
poisoning is green alfalfa dusted
with alkaloid strychnine. Only the
tender green tips of the alfalfa
should be used. These are chopped
rather fine, with pieces about one
inch in length, and one ounce of
strychnine dusted evenly over about
eighteen pounds of the green alfal
fa and mixed thoroughly. The bait
should be prepared as late in the
day as possible so that lt may be
distributed fresh late in the after
noon. Best results have been ob
tained by placing the bait In small
bunches no larger than a pullet egg
In the rabbit trails well back from
the fields. One should start not
closer than two hundred yards from
the fields where the rabbits have
been coming to feed, and put in the
trails from there back Into the

DE0S FARM HOME
BURNS TO GROUND
Little Saved; Cause of Fire Unde
termined; Boy Escapes Thru
Fire of undetermined oriein com
pletely razed the Jess Deos farm
home near Willows about 11:30 o'
clock Friday morning. So sudden
was the onset of flames that one
son, Alva, was forced to escape
from an upstairs window. He and
his sister, Isabel, were the only
members of the family in the house
when the fire started, Isabel being
asleep downstairs. Mr. and Mrs.
Deos and the other son, Jack, were
outside, and by the time they were
notified could do little toward sav
ing any of the contents. A few
clothes and an oil stove were saved
through a rear window. The house
and contents were well covered by
Mr. and Mrs. Deos had just fln
inshed kalsomining and repainting
the interior of the house. It was
thought possible that spontaneous
combustion may have been the
cause, though Mr. Deos said he was
careful to see that all oily rags and
other incendiary material had been
thoroughly cleaned up and removed
from the house.
The Deos family is living tem
porarily in a bunk house on the
farm. The bunk house and several
other outbuildings were saved by
a shift in the wind.
The total loss had not been esti
mated. The house was large and
well constructed, plastered inside,
and well filled with good furniture
besides many family heirlooms. The
family had celebrated the day be
fore, and $30 in cash which Mr.
Deos had left in his suit, and $10
which Alva had in his suit was
consumed along with the suits, and
most of the family wardrobe.
Mr. Deos expected to start re
building as soon as arrangements
could be made.
