We Are Thankful
PRESIDENT ROOSEVELT has
expressed the sentiment of the
nation on this day of Thanksbiving.
First and foremost we are thankful
that we are a nation at peace in a
world torn by war. Then we are
grateful for a generous Providence.
The Thanksgiving theme is old,
yet ever new. Thanks-giving ante
dates the coming of our Pilgrim
forefathers to America, though they
gave it special significance on the
new continent. It is as old as man
kind. But it is new because man
kind, though it has progressed in
use and development of talents, still,
as did the first man, depends upon
a power over which it has no con
trol to subsist in the world.
Man is and always has been insuf -ficent
unto himself. The elements
of nature seem to play a lesser part
, in his existence today than they did
in primeordial times, yet the Four
Horsemen of Hate, Fear, Pestilence
and Death ride o'er the world and
we know not whence they may
We as a nation have been little
trod on by the arch enemies of hu
manity in the last twelvemonth. And
if we as individuals have escaped
their course, then, indeed, have we
real cause for Thanksgiving.
No Day Dream
TNLAND EMPIRE WATERWAYS
JLassociation will shortly file a brief
with the Board of Army Engineers
at Washington in reply to the report
of Colonel Robins made July first.
The brief was expected to incorpor
ate a voluminous array of letters
from civic, farm and other organiza
tions of the region in support of the
association program. Morrow coun
ty organizations which have not
done so should act immediately. All
have supported the Inland Water
ways program, and a concrete ex
pression now may be of material as
sistance. The waterways association is con
tentious for no single development.
It's program asks for slack water
navigation of the Columbia between
The Dalles and Lewiston as the ul
timate objective, leaving to the board
of engineers the most logical and
economical course to attain that end.
This county's benefit is to be ex
pected in the way of lowered trans
portation costs for our farm prod
ucts. If our average annual output
of 1,500,000 bushels of wheat and
1,000,000 pounds of wool were to be
moved at a cent a hundred pounds
reduction in freight cost, the saving
to our producers would be $90,000
each year. This would amortize quite
a sizeable investment as this coun
ty's share of river development,
while in addition backhaul of heavy
commodities consumed in the coun
ty suitable for river movement
would contribute an additional sav
ing. With the county ever increasing
Three Danger Zones in the
Although the number of deaths
from tuberculosis In the general
population has steadily declined
during the past fifty years, there are
still three groups of American citi
zens, especially susceptible to the
enemy's attack. It is still the leading
cause of death for young women be
tween 15 and 30; it takes 6 times
more men in the lowest economic
group than In the highest, and each
year It kills three to three and one-
its comsumption of motor fuel thru
widening use of machine power on
our farms, freight cost on this fuel
item could reasonably be expected
to be reduced which should con
tribute a sizeable saving in this one
item of consumption alone.
Those who are promoting the river
development program are not day
dreaming. The saving which may
reasonably be expected to be made
in Morrow county is only a drop in
the bucket to the total saving which
should result to the Inland Empire
The total figure should run into the
millions of dollars each year.
ENLISTS IN ARMY
Major H. D. Bagnall, the Army Re
cruiting Officer, 323 New Post Of
fice building, Portland, announced
Tuesday the enlistment in the Uni
ted States army of Andrew McDon
ald Shoun, son of Mr. and Mrs. J. A.
Shoun of Heppner.

Portland office on November 3rd
and was tentatively accepted on that
date. After passing the final regular
army examinations at Vancouver
Barracks, Washington, he was en

Barracks without delay for the Ov
erseas Discharge and Replacement
Depot at San Francisco, Calif., to
prepare to sail for the Islands on the
army transport that leaves there on

HOW ABOUT IT, "FRED"?
Some of Dr. Fred E. Farrior's old
time Heppner friends chuckled when
they read in the daily press of an in
cident this week. i
The former Heppner dentist was
given a ticket for over-time parking
in his home town of Pendleton. Re
porting before the judge he was as
sessed a $1 fine. He paid it, but re
vealed upon doing so that working
overtime on the teeth of the daugh
ter of Henry Arkell, patrolman issu
ing the ticket, was responsible for
the overparking. Now Fred's friends
here will ask if he tacked the price
of the fine on the dental bill.
SHEEP FROM MONTANA
Sheep flocks of J. G. Barratt which
were summered on Montana range
arrived Monday morning and were
unloaded at the local railroad yards.
Full precipitation of winter in the
Glacier National park region where
the sheep were stationed occasioned
removal of the sheep before the ex
pected time. Mr. Barratt expected
they might be kept there until the
first of next month.

Comes to Forest
New forest supervisors for three
national forests in the North Pacific
region of Oregon and Washington
were announced by regional forest
er C. J. Buck this week.
Ralph Crawford, Pendleton, who
has been acting supervisor of the
Umatilla national forest this year
has been moved to Seattle to become
supervisor of the Snoqualmie na
tional forest, a position left vacant
by John C. Kuhns who recently was
made assistant regional forester.
Carl Ewing, formerly supervisor
of the Malheur national forest at
John Day, has been appointed super
visor of the Umatilla national for
est at Pendleton, and Ed. E. Birk
maier, now assistant in the regional
range management office at Port
land, will move to John Day to be
come supervisor of the Malheur na
tional forest, succeeding Ewing.
Carl Ewing, who will be the new
forest supervisor of the Umatilla
national forest, received part of his
trainnig at Ohio State university. He
entered the forest service as a guard
on the Fremont national forest,
Lakeview, in 1908. In the ten years
from 1912 to 1922 he left the service
and engaged in varied professional
and business activity, notably lum
bering and ranching. Returning to
the Fremont forest again in 1922 he
remained until he became assistant
supervisor of the Malheur forest at
John Day in 1925 and supervisor in
1930. Ewing has had charge of range
examination work under the range
conservation program of the AAA
in Oregon and Washington during
the past year.
In the Umatilla and Malheur for
ests range livestock problems are
extremely important, and Ewing and
Birkmaier are considered excep
tionally well qualified from exper
ience and study to help meet these
problems. Crawford's technical
training and experience are believed
to have fitted him for the complex
problems of his important Snoqual
mie assignment. Ewing and Craw
ford are members of the Society of

Good Elk Season
Brought to Close
More than 600 bull elk will have
been taken out of Oregon's four
counties of Grant, Baker, Union, and
Umatilla when the last hunter has
officially checked out of the hunt
ing territory, according to estimates
of E. P. Cliff of the U. S. Forest Ser
vice division of wild life, who re
turned to Portland from the hunt
ing area this week. The ten-day elk
season closed November 18.
Records showed that of the 2,816
hunters who checked in at the 14
stations manned by state game com
mission and U. S. forest service rep
resentatives, 1,654 had "checked out"
by november 18 which was the last
day of the hunting season, accord
ing to Cliff. More than 544 kills had
already been reported with some
1,200 hunters yet to be heard from.
La Grande topped the list of check
ing stations with 591 hunters checked
in and 129 elk brought out at that
point, Cliff reported. Time for check
ing out had been extended another
day by state officials because of the
Cliff reported that the elk hunt
was managed, as in past years, by
the state game commission, state po
lice, and forest service working in
cooperation. Each hunter was per
mitted to kill one bull elk with
horns. Regulations aimed at the com
plete salvage of the meat, which is
somewhat of a task as these animals
weigh up to 600 pounds. Hunters
were required to have sufficient
tackle to hang an elk carcass and to
have adequate tools properly to
clean and prepare the meat. Few
violations of the law were noted.
A gratifying feature of the season
this year has been the fact that a
large proportion of the elk kill con
sisted of mature bulls, indicating past
seasons had not depleted the young
er animals. Cliff also stated that the
elk this year were more widely
scattered over the range which
means that concentrated and dam
aging inroads on the winter forage
supply will be less severe. It is evi
dent according to Cliff, that in spite
of open seasons for the past four
years the natural increase of the
herds has exceeded the toll from
Last year 547 elk were bagged by
a total of 2,945 hunters and in 1931
2,761 hunters brought in 692 elk.
Information gained by state game
officials and the forest service this
season will prove extremely valuable
in framing future plans for manage
ment of big game herds in the na
tional forests, according to Cliff.
