Saturday, May 23rd, was pro
claimed Poppy Day in Heppner in
a proclamation issued Tuesday by
Mayor Jeff Jones. The procla
mation urged all citizens to honor
the World War dead by 'wearing
the American Legion and Auxil
iary memorial poppy on that day,
and to aid the war's living victims
by contributing to the Legion and
Auxiliary welfare funds. The
proclamation follows:
"The City of Heppner during the
great crisis of the World War
sent forth its sons in response to
the nation's call. They served
gallantly in the nation's defense,
and of their number some were
called upon to lay down their
lives in that service. The mem
ory of their patriotic sacrifice
should always be held dear by
the citizens of Heppner.
"Others of these brave young
men were called upon to sacrifice,
not life, but health and strength
which makes life worth while.
Their families and the families of
the dead also were required to
make heavy sacrifices. These dis
abled and dependents are still
paying th human price of our na
tion's World War victory.
"From the battle front in
France our returning soldiers
brought the poppy as the symbol
of sacrifice and the memorial
flower of the dead. Each year on
the Saturday before Memorial
Day the men of the American
Legion and the women of the
American Legion Auxiliary ask
us to wear this flower in tribute
to the nation's fallen defenders
and to give in exchange for the
flower a contribution to aid the
war's living victims.
"Therefore, I, Jeff Jones, May
or of Heppner, urge all citizens
to honor the dead and aid the liv
ing by wearing the American Le
gion and American Legion Auxil
iary memorial poppy on Satur
day, May 23rd.
"And to that end,, I do hereby
proclaim Saturday, May 23rd,
Poppy Day in the City of Hepp
Value of Free, Virile
Press Told by Editor
"One newspaper editor in each
county, telling the truth courage
ously, fearing neither man nor devil,
wearing no man's collar, swerving
neither to right nor left through
fear of advertising loss, determined
to do his duty to his readers, his
God and his own conscience I say
one such editor and his fellows can
save the state from selfishness, par
tisanship, the rule of demagogues
and perhaps revolution."
This statement was made by Ar
thur Crookham, city editor of the
Oregon Journal, in an address on
newspaper practices and policies
given before the annual Matrix Ta
ble banquet of Theta Sigma Phi,
national society for women in jour
nalism, at Oregon State college.
Crookham, speaking from 23 years
of active newspaper experience,
freely admitted the faults of the
press, or certain sections of it, and
said that while considering the nec
essity of a free press, it is well to
remember that newspapers have
duties as well as rights. He urged
the active participation of newspa
pers in promoting good government
rather than mere partisan politics.'
"If the Oregon primary law is
ever repealed, I believe it will be
due to the incompetence of self
starters and the failure of the press
to expose the charlatans and stand
by the clean and competent candi
dates, regardless of party," he said.
Mr. Crookham decried cynics and
cynicism among newspapermen,
which, he said, is largely a pose
when it exists at all. A cynic's con
tribution to and influence for good
in the world is nil, said the speaker,
adding that even a hypocrite is to
be preferred to a cynic as he at
least pays lip loyalty to better
things than he may believe.
The speaker quoted Dickens with
approval as saying that in news
paper work as elsewhere "there is
no substitute for thorough-going,
ardent and sincere earnestness."

Shall Radical Labor Leaders
Rule Oregon?
For more than two years the economic, industrial
and agricultural life of this state has been in a
state of almost constant turmoil because of far
reaching labor disturbances.
Lives here have been sacrificed our farmers have
suffered tremendous losses; the wheels of industry
have been silenced.
Irresponsible labor leadership has brought about
this condition. For the good of organized labor,
and for the good of all the people, the responsi
bility of labor organizations must be fixed by
