business, a business which in this
case had a million-dollar turnover.
All of which helps to substantiate
Jerry's statement that Los Angeles
is destined to be the world's largest
city. We were there four years ago
just as the depression was begin
ning to be felt Los Angeles is bus
ier now than it was then, though
on our previous visit more visitors
had been drawn to town to see the
Olympic games. Los Angeles is
leading coast cities in attracting
new industries, and its growth now
contrasted with that of boom days
is on a sounder foundation. The
boom promoters laid the basis for
the substantial business life now
developing, and with real estate
values just emerging from the low
ebb, there appears every reason
to believe that Jerry may be right
To begin with Los Angeles is al
ready the largest city in the United
States, geographically, and its
Western avenue is said to be the
longest street in the world some
We stayed in Holywood at the
home of Mart King, Mrs. Crawford's
brother who spent some time in
Heppner as a boy, and who plays
trombone in the Paramount orches
tra. Mart has a fine home in Holly
wood hills which he built himself,
and is happy with his wife and two
year-old son. From Hollywood one
gets a close-up of the large movie
industry, still the largest Income
producer in Los Angeles. We didn't
get a close-up of any celebrities,
but we did meet one actor who
it was our pleasure to see later in
feature at one of the theaters.
This man took the part of a crim
inal on the screen, but off the
screen he was a cultured and re
fined gentleman, a contrast that
adds somewhat to appreciation of
the actors art. In Hollywood, it
seems, everyone is "in pictures" or
"not in pictures."

without mishap except for one

off and Ochoco highway to The
Dalles-California highway over the
Klamath Falls-Weed cut-off to the
Paciflo highway. Leaving Hepp

July 9, we reached Woodland, Cal.,
at 8:30 that evening. Spending the
night in an auto camp there, we
started on the next morning and
reached the King home in Holly
wood at 7:30 that evening a two
day trip, made through heayy traf
fic much of the way which did not
permit fast driving. A fact which
shows Heppner and Los Angeles
are not so far apart after all.

after all was impressed upon us by
one incident on the return. We
returned by way of the coast high
way from Los Angeles to San Fran
cisco. Stopping at Pismo beach
for gas, we were accosted by the
service man who had noted the
Oregon license. "Portland?" he
asked. "No-o, eastern Oregon
Heppner," we replied. "Know the
Notsons?" he quizzed. We smiled
in the aflirmtaive. 'Ever . know
Leota Bennehoff;" Yes, we re
membered her as having taught
school at Heppner. He informed
us that she was then nursing in I
a sanitarium at Pismo. The young
man's name developed to be Ryan,
a native of Oregon City, and his
brother had been a fraternity bro
ther of Bob Notson's at Willamette
The heat was excessive when the
road strayed away from the ocean
breezes, but fog was falling over
San Francisco on arrival there In
the evening. The cold air was con
ducive to the heavy slumber taken
at the home of Mr. and Mrs. W. V.
Crawford in Sausalito. Leaving
there shortly before noon, the drive
was made to Fort Klamath where
stop for the night was made at 11
o'clock. Home was reached by 4:30,

There was heat every place ex
cept the evening in the San Fran
cisco bay region, and some places
were a lot hottter than Heppner,
which may be some comfort to
season. In the meantime, inter
ested parties are hoping to get it
under way and have it completed
in time for the swimming season

Matter of location for the tank
Is still undecided. Choice seems to
rest between the hill site back of
the court house and the property in

was made that the down-town site
offered possibilities of developing
a playground park as well as a
place for the swimming tank.

Considering hew fine this

nowadays, you can't travel
any cheaper. Fares lowest

So why not take the train?
It's safer. It's more dependable.

It's a good thing movies

Ever hear about the Free pick-up-and-delivery
of less than
carload freight? It's a great
convenience to shippers and
receivers alike. Western rail
roads pick up at the door,
ship by fast freight, and de

Railroad trains are twining on
faster schedules these days.
Seems like the iron horse wants
to show these new streamlined
diesels that he can step out, too.
Both passenger and freight
schedules have been speeded up.
What's more, the railroads
believe in "safety first."
Last year not one passenger
was killed in a train acci
dent on western railroads.
