At Heppner
University of Oregon, Eugene,
June 23. (Special) Morrow coun
ty was represented by three stu
dents among the 467 seniors to re
ceive various academic degrees at
solemn impressive, graduation cer
emonies Monday night, June 1. The
evening program, when graduating
seniors filed into huge McArthur
court behind hooded faculty mem
bers and friends of higher educa
tion, painted a colorful finish to a
week end of graduation and alumni
There i3 a real danger that Amer
ica, losing faith in freedom is los
ing faith in the essence of our na
tional and individual life, Dr. J.
Duncan Spaeth, former professor of
English at Princeton and now pres
ident of the University of Kansas
City, warned the seniors in his
speech on 'Training for Freedom
at the 59th annual commencement
Dr. Spaeth praised the purpose
and ultimate aims of the "New
Deal" but expressed worry that liberal-minded
Americans might in
terpret the phrase as an implication
that life is but a gamble, where the
best things go to those who are
luckiest at the draw. In any so
ciety, the deserving ultimately come
ahead, he declared.
Seniors were cautioned by Dr. C.
Valentine Boyer, president of the
university, that the world will
henceforth judge them as adults,
and will make no allowances for
youth and inexperience in the fu
ture. In his parting talk, he also
plead for a recognition of the val
ues of knowledge, beauty, and love.
These elements, he said, are the
creative forces of the world, and
the durable satisfactions of life. "It
is through the pursuit of these val
ues that man grows, develops his
proper proportions, becomes what a
human should become," he conclud
ed. East joined West in the world of
learning as highest honors were
paid to two outstanding scholars,
Dr. Spaeth and Dr. Jiro Harada,
commissioner of the Imperial Mu
seum, Tokyo, Japan. Dr. Spaeth
received the degree of doctor of
law, and the degree of doctor of
letters was conferred upon Dr. Har
ada. Dr. Harada, internationally
known art authority, has been vis
iting professor of oriental art and
culture at the university during the
past year.
At baccalaureate service the day
before, Rev. Edwin J. OHara,
bishop of Great Falls, Montana,
urged the seniors to be earnest in
selecting their professions and avo
cations, keeping in mind the ser
vice they can do for society. Some
thing more than efficiency in a pro
fession is expected from a college
graduate. They are expected to
manifest in every personal relation
the attributes of a cultivated mind
and heart, Rev. O'Hara declared.
The three seniors of Morrow
county who were graduated from
the University of Oregon at the
ceremonies are:
Marjorie Clark- Ridings majored
in arts and letters, from which de
partment she received the degree
of bachelor of arts. Her home is
in Heppner.
John G. Parker majored in busi
ness administration, from which
department he received the degree
of bachelor of arts. He is the son
of F. S. Parker of Heppner, and is
a graduate of Heppner high school
hxlwm T. Ingles majored in educa
tion, from which department he re
ceived the degree of master of arts.
His home is in Boardman.

Driving while intoxicated brought
45 persons into the courts in Ore
gon In May and cost them their
right to operate motor vehicles for
a year. Reports from the office of
Earl Snell, secretary of state, show
that three other drivers lost their
licenses for an additional year due
to driving while their licenses were
In addition to the revocations
there were 36 suspensions of li
censes, of which 21 were on charges
of reckless driving. Other causes
for suspended licenses were: Fail
ing to give right of way, 1; unsatis
fied judgment, 1; hit and run, 1;
driving while license suspended, 1;
adjudged as incompetent, 3; violat
ing basic rule, 2; failure to appear,
and physical disability, 1.
Of the 45 revocations on drunken
driving charges, three only were
results of convictions in Portland
courts, and of the 36 suspension or
ders, four only were based on rec
ommendations from Portland
Many infractions of the motor ve
hicle law are reported to the sec
retary of state, in addition to the
convictions resulting in the revo
cation or suspenion of the driver's
license, and such offenses are noted
on the license record of the operat
or involved. Including these con
victions of a more minor nature, a
total of 665 convictions were' re
ported to the state department in
Basic Science Exam July 18
Corvallis The next state exam
ination in basic sciences for those
planning to practice the healing arts
in this state has been announced
for July 18 at Oregon State college.
Those planning to take this exam
ination may obtain application
blanks from C. D. Byrne, secretary
of the state board of higher educa
tion at Eugene. These must be filed
with him before July 1st
Motor vehicle deaths in May were
nearly double the number in May,
1935, with 24 persons killed in Ore
gon as a result of automobile ac
cidents. Thirteen fatalities from
similar causes occurred in May of
last year. Secretary of State Snell
calls attention to this increase in
car deaths, as well as to the 59 per
cent step-up in the number of ac
cidents, which jumped from 1,705
last May to 2,712 in May of this
"Greater travel on the highways
is undoubtedly responsible for much
of the appalling increase," states
Mr. Snell, "but this greater use of
the highways should be a challenge
to all drivers to exercise greater
caution, better judgment in car op
eration, Increased courtesy, and to
be continuously safety-conscious.1
Only through constant careful at
tention to the rights of others and
the rules of the road can we make
any progress In improving present
traffic trends.
Coordinator Recommends
Low Prices, Better Service
"It is encouraging to find that
our plea as to need of lower rail
rates and our allegations that
avoidable railroad wastes annually
run inu many minions or dollars,
are being sustained," states Arthur
M. Geary, attorney for the Farm
Rate council and Livestock Ship
pers Traffic league.
"News dispatches indicate that
even Wall Street Interests evince
no enthusiasm over the Interstate
Commerce commission's recent six
months' extension of the emergency
freight rate surcharges, or over
the eastern railroads' opposition in
court to reduced passenger fares.
The hope of the railroads, one-third
of which are now in bankruptcy
Is 'through better service at lower
prices', according to Coordinator
Eastman's statement at Boston last
week. Mr. Eastman's view is in
accordance with that of Commis
sioner Clyde B. Aitchlson and is
harmonious with the views ex
pressed by farm leaders in current
rreight rate cases.
Most farmers and stockmen
agree with Coordinator Eastman
that there should be such economies
as unification of terminals, aban
donment of unneeded railroad mile
age, replacement of antequated
equipment, ana helpful consolida
"They agree with Coordinato
Eastman that railroad employees In
tneir own interest should not con
tinue to fight in the front-line
trenches against all displacement
or laDor, temporary or otherwise
and should not regard their recent
agreement with railroad employers
aa xo retirement pay for displaced
employees as merely a valuable
Hlndenburg line useful in case of
"On the other hand, farmers and
stockmen agree with railroad em
ployees that the economies result
ing from coordination should not
just provide 'milk for Wall Street
to absorb' and that the financial
structure of the railroad companies
should be drastically reformed at
this time."

or presented to the secretary of
state's office.
Nearly 14,000 claimants were li
censed during the 1935-36 permit
year. Increased activity in the gaso
line refund division was due not
only to the permit requirements,
but to the greater frequency with
which claims were filed by the in
dividual applicants and to the im
proved business conditions that
brought greater use of motor ve
hicle fuels.
Our deep appreciation is extended
all those who assisted us at the time
of the bereavement of Mrs. Sadie
Lewis, and for the kind expressions
of sympathy and beautiful flowers.

Permits to obtain gas tax refunds
