From the Heppner hills by a cir
cuitous route to the Trinity river in
Texas where he is now regional ad
ministrator for the Rural Resettle
ment administration has been a good
part of life's journey for Paul V.
Maris, who until a few years ago
was director of extension on the
Oregon Agricultural college staff.
The news of Mr. Maris' latest ad
vancement comes from none other
than J. Garfield Crawford, who, in
reading the June 3 issue of the Dal
las Times-Herald in line with his
work as propaganda agent for the
Greater Texas & Pan American ex
position, opening in Dallas next Sat
urday, uncovered a two -column pic
ture of Mr. Maris shaking hands
with his predecessor in office.
"Paul Maris' father was superin
tendent of Oscar Minor's fine stock
farm for several years, and while
such acquired and built a very fine
shorthorn herd for the late Morrow
county merchant and livestock
grower," Mr. Crawford relates.
"Paul, with other members of the
family, attended the Heppner schools
along about the time that Hep Black
rpHIRTY-FOUR years ago next
J. Monday Heppner was visited by
the disastrous flood which has taken
its place in the annals of history as
the worst of its kind in number of
lives lost. That catastrophe is still
fresh in the minds of many residents
whose loved ones and friends were
lost in the deluge.
At hand is a copy of the Gazette
of June 25, 1903, the second issue
published after the disaster. In it is
the long list of victims, still incom
plete, another list of property dam
age, and still another list of the con
tributions which flooded into Hepp
ner from all over the country to help
relieve the distress. In it is the story
of the shock, so great that two weeks
afterwad people were just begin
ning to awaken to the true situation,
so busy had everyone been helping
to bridge the emergency; the story
of bravery, of sickness, and of the
outside workers who came by fifties
and hundreds to help the stricken
There is no describing the heart
aches, the terrors, or any of the emo
tional results of the flood. But the
Gazette, in the issue at hand, sounds
the spirit with which the city lifted
its head toward the future. That
was, "Heppner Will Rebuild."
"Heppner will outlive her great
disaster and will rebuild with more
solid buildings than before, espec
ially in the business portion. Al
ready the erection of four substantial
brick business buildings to take the
place of old wooden structures that
were damaged by the flood, is con
templated, and it is almost a settled
fact that these buildings will be
built. Work on many new residence
buildings will be commenced as soon
as possible," the Gazette predicted.
"Heppner people are independent,
determined, and progressive and the
town will be built right up again.
And why not. Nothing like this ever
occurred before and it is not likely
that there ever will be an occurrence
of this kind again. The main dam
age was in the city of Heppner. We
still have all the resources we ever
had and the business will naturally
come to Heppner just as it did be
fore." The Gazette then predicted truly.
Heppner did rebuild. So well did it
rebuild that all physical evidence of
the flood is now eradicated. And
Heppner still continues to rebuild,
from the flood, and from fire disas
ters that came afterward. Hoppner
is now a better built city than it
ever was; but it must not' rest.
There are still resources that await
development; there are still things to
be done to make the city more at
tractive, and to provide more con
veniences and better living condi
tions. We hope the possibility of more
floods is slight. But we can better

"Well, it seems that Mr. Maris has
profited by his training of early days
at the Oregon Agricultural college

this day of New Dealing, farm regi
