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 "Heppner Will Rebuild' 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 citizens. 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 man, Doc Matlock and some others were letting their pants down to their shoestrings. Prof. W. C. Howard was the big boss on top of the hjll and many grandmothers now were sweet young things thinking mainly of the weekly Saturday night dance at the Garrigues' opera house. "Well, it seems that Mr. Maris has profited by his training of early days at the Oregon Agricultural college for he seems to be stepping lively in this day of New Dealing, farm regi mentation and C. I. O. strikes. . . . Anyway, he has come a long way from the Heppner hills to the Trinity river bottoms of Texas, having taken many detours, 1 understand by a close scrutiny of the Gazette columns now and then. "I haven't seen Mr. Maris, but I can see from the picture there is a strong family resemblance. "I neglected to mention at the time Mr. Maris, Sr., was running the Mi nor ranch I was chief printer on the Heppner Times under the direction of the late E. M. Shutt. ... If you see any old timers around Heppner who still have a kindly feeling tow ard me, just give them my regards." Jim Burnside was in town Tues day from the farm near Hardman. He reported Mrs. Burnside just re covering from a severe attack of food poisoning. Miss Stella Jamieson and Mrs. R. C. Banister have gone to Weston to attend the Umatilla county pioneers reunion being held there tomorrow and Saturday. Misses Erma and.

Mr. and Mrs. John Bergstrom were in the city yesterday afternoon from the Eight Mile farm. They reported a light shower there in the morning. be assured of protection by building safeguards. There may be another flood. And if there is, may the flood dams be in place as has been rec ommended by the board of army en gineers. 1 Miss Cradick to Wed Mayor Carson June 19 Miss Myrtle Cradick, daughter of Mrs. Minnie B.
