big slump in stocks and bonds this
week. Just a little dust kicking in
the perpetual battle between the
bulls and bears.
On the labor front, Portland again
comes into its own as one of the hot
spots, with news of cracked craniums
along the picket lines.
Life's battles progress. One show
ing signs of victory is the waylaying
of dust on Heppner streets.

Up With the Tide
HEPPNER is rapidly emerging
from the throes of depression,
a better town than ever before. We
say better advisedly, meaning from
a material viewpoint. Probably our
people are no better, no worse.
Improvement number one, mater
ially speaking, will soon appear in
the form of hard surfacing on all the
city's principal thoroughfares. Thus
will be afforded much relief from
dust, much enjoyability to travel in
all parts of town. Many of winter's
slush holes will disappear, and there
will be incentive for beautificatlon
of curbs and yards.
Improvement number two is be
ing brought about through civic
minded councilmen and mayor who
are effecting the removal of fire and
health hazards. Some compliance
with their wishes has already re
sulted in commendable improve
ment. It may seem a little drastic to
ask for removal of buildings on Main
street, but when such buildings
jeopardize public peace, health and
safety, the asking is quite within
reason. The council is entitled to
wholehearted cooperation from ev
The improvements being brought
about in the city generally, reflected
as well by much renovating and new
construction including the new ga
rage building now nearing comple
tion on the old Palace hotel corner
are the result of better times.
Not alone in Heppner but in the
county generally, there is fixing up
that has needed to be done for sev
eral years, but which could not be
done so long as the county's basic
industries were in the doldrums,
These industries, through increased
production and prices which are re
turning some profit for the producer,
are again making improvement pos
sible, attracting outside as well as
local capital to build for the future
In times of depression all hope of
improvement wanes, but when
springs of fulsome business gush
'forth, improvement comes easily,
naturally. Much brighter days are
Tiere now than seemed possible a
year or two ago, and visions of the
iuture may now be seen such as
were then beyond the scope of the
most vivid imagination.
