Heppner's Share of National Debt

Democratic Platform Cited.
Capt. S. N. Dancey, world jour
nalist, author and lecturer, laid a
fighting Irish challenge to the vot
ers of the county In an address be
fore the newly organized Morrow
County Republican club at the court
house Tuesday evening. That chal
lenge Was whether Morrow coun
tlans would vote for Roosevelt, reg
imentation and boondoggling, or
whether they would back Landon
for a return to the sound principles
of American constitutional govern
ment which secure to everyone the
right to life, liberty and pursuit of
In his discourse throughout, based
on facts which he himself uncovered
as chairman of the republican nation-wide
fact finding agency, Cap
tain Dancey refused to refer to the
present administration as "Demo
crat." The New Dealers went into
office on as fine a democratic plat
form aa was ever written, pledged
to governmental economy, less bu
reaucracy, and a balanced budget
Republicans and democrats alike
rallied to the support of the Roose
veltian banner on this platform,
evidencing the greatest unanimity
of support accorded any president
since Washington. It was that sup
port which permitted establishment
of NRA. After more than three
years in office the New Dealers
have scrapped nearly every plank
in that platform. They have In
creased the national debt to the all
time peak of 35 billions of dollars.
They have loaded the government
with bureaus and more bureaus,
many of which have payrolls far in
excess of the amount of money they
take in. Far from balancing the
national budget, they have unbal
anced it to the point where the
widest stretch of the imagination
cannot conceive of its being brought
into balance in a long long time,
and only through the heaviest bur
den of taxation ever experienced by
the American people.
The present national debt
amounts to more than $248 for ev
ery man, woman and child in the
United States. It exceeds the assess
ed valuation of all the farm lands
and farm equipment in the coun
try. If all the people were to join
a nudist colony and go without
clothes for a year, the money rep
resented would not take care of the
New Deal spending for the same
length of time.
Heppner's share of the New Deal
debt amounts to more than $300,
000. And it will have to be paid.
The democratic platform prom
ised jobs for the unemployed. At
the end of the New Dealers' three
years in office, the number of unem
ployed Is 12,300,000, an Increase in
stead of decrease. In place of in
dependent jobs in private Industry,
the New Deal has given the unem
ployed a mere subsistence dole with
no promise of anything better in
the future. It has said there must
be a large class of unemployed un
der the new order.
The only tax offered to compen
sate for the additional expenditure
so far is the corporations' surplus
tax. Cited by New Dealers as a
"soak the rich" tax, this tax has
thrown the biggest scare Into prl
vate Industry of any New Deal act
And it's not the big fellow, who can
pay it without hurting, but the lit
tle fellow who is caught. Small in
dustries who used up their surplus
capital to keep going through the
depression and who looked forward
to better times in order to make
necessary repairs and expand to
meet Increasing business are the
ones who are hit by the tax. This
class of industry, by having their
surplus capital depleted via the tax
route, faces extinction. It cannot
carry the burden. Instead of en
couraging industry, and thus pro'
vlding more jobs, this New Deal
act is resulting in more and more
With his "stream-lined" radio
voice Roosevelt said "we are wag
ing a war on entrenched greed."
By Implication he would have the
American people believe that the
New Deal is taking the wealth
awav from the millionaires and giv
ing it to the little fellow. This
while he, himself, is listed as a sub
stantial stockholder in one of our
greatest and richest corporations,
This while Immense private for
tunes have been made from New

of all the Morgans, Rockefellers,
DuPonts, Fords and all the other
multimillionaires were taken It

for only eight months.

Labor Day Tribute Given;
WPA May Aid Swim Tank
Oregon has the distinction of be
ing the first state In the Union to
endorse celebration of Labor Day
by legislative enactment, S. E. Not
son told the Lions club at its Tues
day luncheon, though the date was
set for the first Monday In June.
Colorado was the first state to set
the holiday by legislative enact
ment on the first Monday In Sep
tember, and the Oregon law was
later amended to make the holiday
n this state conform. Now every
state in the Union observes the day
the first Monday in September.
Notson gave this statistical infor
mation in paying tribute to the day
originally instituted by organized la
bor, but which has come to be rec
ognized as a day set apart to honor
all labor. The occasion is especially
fitting, said the speaker, since the
only true wealth is obtained through
application of Intelligent labor to
Dr. L. D. Tibbies reported for the
club's swimming tank committee
that a further possibility of obtain
ing the tank was revealed last week
end on the visit of district WPA
engineer Hayes to the city. He and
Harry Tamblyn, county engineer,
had gone into the ramifications of
the matter and believed that with
WPA assistance the tank could be
constructed at much less cost to
the city than would be called for
otherwise. Hayes was also report
ed as considering that WPA help
could be obtained. Whether or not
this is the 'case, Dr. Tibbies said,
the city might be justified in levy
ing a bond issue or jouw wnicn
would be sufflcent to build the tank
in case WPA did not help, and if
the government agency did help
then the money could be used for
installation of filtration plant which
could not be included in the WPA
assistance. The committee was to
confer further with the council that

Three Plead Guilty in Justice Court
to Cutting Griswold Timber;
Mistake Admitted.
The names of a number of prom
inent Eight Mile men were drawn
into the mesh of an investigation
being made this week by M. C. Grls
wold of Portland of alleged theft
of timber from his holdings south
of Hardman. Caught in the mesh
were Carl Leathers, Charley and
Kinnard McDaniel of Hardman,
who plead guilty in justice court to
the charge of simple larceny of tim
ber, and were fined $25 each, $10 of
which was paid and the other $15
left on parole.
The Hardman men admitted be
fore Justice Fred Lucas that they
had cut timber on Griswold land,
though 'only Leathers admitted he
knew the land belonged to the Port
land man. Charley McDaniel had
assisted Leathers on the saw while
on the way to his traps one day.
The Eight Mile men whose names
were brought into the case, admit
ted cutting timber in the vicinity,
but believed they had cut it off gov
ernment land. They had secured
permits from the local forester and
thought they had followed his di
rections as to the proper location.
One of the men involved accom
panied Griswold and party to the
place where he cut the timber and
showed them the marked stumps.
On being shown the corner stone
and seeing the line surveyed, he
admitted he had made a mistake.
Griswold appeared before the dis
trict attorney and demanded the
arrest of all those whose names
were involved, which the district
attorney refused because of insuf
ficient showing of criminal Intent
Some of the men involved offered a
S. E. Notson, district attorney,
said the matter would be presented
before the next grand jury for in
vestigation. Griswold alleges theft of timber
from his lands has been taking
place for several years, and he is
determined to stop it He says that
trespass signs put up several times
have been removed, and he is of
fering a reward of $25 to anyone
giving information leading to ar
rest and conviction of the person or
persona who have removed them.
