the most up-to-date modernization
should go hand in hand with a scru

the beauties of the Middle Ages. Its
age was to be made Soest's asset
irfstead of its liability.
It all centered finally in Pastor
Clarenbach. The story is too long
to tell in detail. The bed of the
moat was cleared and made into
charming gardens. Prizes were of
fered for businessmen who con
ducted their advertising most suc
cessfully in the spirit of old Soest.
Incidentaly, Pastor Clarenbach is
pro-advertising and not anti-advertising.
Pride was aroused in the
householder for the antiquity of
his ancient dwelling. The old coats
of arms were regilded, the old mot
toes furbished and made to appear
as they were when Luther came
to Soest, streets were made prac
tical for modern traffic in such a
way that the medieval beauty of
the place was enhanced rather than

himself is at the head of the move
ment for all Westphalia and West
phalia represents the most advanc
ed regional planning in Germany,
if not the world, and Soest the most
sucessful plan fully and success
fully carried out.
The very business men who were
so actively spoiling what was left
of Soest thirty years ago are now
the trongest supporters of Pastor
Clarenbach, because the money is
jingling in their pockets that proves
that civic beauty has greater pos
sibilities of private profit than let
ting every man carry out his own
sweet will with his own property.
The remarkable thing is that every
bit of this was carried out without
the slightest compulsion. The only
force used was moral suasion and

commission has just closed its big
gest year, according to Albert Hun-
ter, chairman, with receipts total
ing more than $4,000,000. The an
nual report of the commission
shows $6,632,771.56 set aside in the
segregated fund to pay pensions to
3330 beneficiaries including 790
widows, more than 1000 orphans,
223 permanently and totally dis
abled workmen with 418 dependents
and 899 partially disabled work
men. Although industrial activity
covered by the workmen's compen
sation act was much greater last
year than for 1928-29 accidents were
greatly reduced and only 130 fa
talities were reported as compared
to 200 for the previous year.

who had been employed in trailing
settled down to straight herding or
other pursuits and one of the pic
turesque eras of Morrow county
history came to an end."
Besides the names mentioned,
Lund recalled that Bud Willingham,
Ed Stevenson, George, Lee and Uzz
French were others who took part
in the drives. Jim Thomson states
that he "trailed" one summer, so
his name is entered upon the ros
ter. Jim went with a band to Idaho
about the time the fencing started.
His experiences were identical with
those of Lund and others but he
decided to stick closer home there
after. Older residents of the county re
call the names of Bunce, Ormsby,
Palmer and Owens. They were
buyers who bought sheep here anj'
had them trailed to their ranches
for winter feeding. Doc Wilson of
Platte Valley, Nebraska, was an
other buyer who was seen frequent
ly in Heppner. A capitalist named
Owens lived at Denver and is said
to have financed several of the
trailing expeditions. He had a fine
ranch near Denver, Bijou ranch,
which was the mecca of sportsmen
of the day. Fine horses were a
hobby with him and his stables
,housed some of the finest stock of
the time. L. L. Ormsby is a resi
dent of Boise. He vsiited Hepp
ner a few years ago 'but it was not
recalled whether he was buying
sheep at that time.
Lund's last trip was to the Big
Horn country in Wyoming. Return
ing to Heppner after that trip he
followed herding and other pursuits
POWER TO BE SHUT OFF.
It is xpected that electric service
in Heppner, Lexington and lone
will be shut off next Sunday morn
ing from 4 a. m. until 5:30 a. m.
to allow repairs to be made to the
high voltage system at the Des
chutes river crossing. Strong winds
prevail in the river canyon and the
constant swing of the wires causes
.breaking of the wire strands. To
eliminate the possibility of a longer
interruption to service during bus
iness hours it has been decided to
make repairs at a time when the
least amount of service is being
used, and with the least amount of
inconvenience to users.
