Father Walsh Hurt
In Accidental Fall
To Creek Bottom
Court Street Bridge
Approach Scene; Lay
Exposed 40 Minutes
Father James J. Walsh, minister
of St. Patrick's parish, sustained
painful injuries when he fell from
the approach to the South Court
street bridge several feet to the bot
tom of Willow creek about 7 o'clock
Monday evening. Striking on sharp
rocks, he lay for about forty min
utes before his predicament was dis
covered by Mrs. Harvey Coxen, liv
ing nearby, who obtained assistance
and aided in his removal to Heppner
hospital for emergency treatment.
His left arm was broken near the
shoulder, his left upper leg severely
bruised and he received a bad wound
at the crest of the middle forehead,
in addition to shock from exposure.
At the point where Father Walsh
fell, the concrete abutment of the
bridge extends a few feet beyond the
wooden span.v Apparently confused
in the darkness and rain he stepped
off here thinking he was stepping
on to the bridge. About four feet
below the top of the abutment is a
ledge of jagged rock sloping off tow
ard the bottom, several feet beyond.
Father Walsh must have struck on
the upper ledge then rolled on to the
bottom where he was found.
Father Walsh had taken dinner at
the Lucas Place and was on his re
turn home alone when the accident
happened. The night was dark and
rainy, believed to have contributed
to the misfortunate step, and add
ing to the shock of exposure.
The injured man was taken to
Pendleton Tuesday by the Phelps
ambulance, with Mrs. R. C. Law
rence, nurse, in attendance and was
placed in St. Anthony's hospital for
Father Walsh is quite elderly, com
plicating recovery from the bone in
juries, but he has the sincere wishes
of the entire community for a speedy

America's Greatest Need
Says Alfred L. Murray: We need,
not more creeds, but more Christ;
not an enlarged Supreme Court but
an increased allegiance to a Supreme
God; not a New Deal but the Old
Gospel; not a revolution but a re
vival; not new political and social
plans but the plan of salvation; not
more organization but more salva
tion; not new leaders but new crea
tures in Christ Jesus. The church
must get down to Christ's business
or go out of business. The Bible was
not written to hold men down, but
to lift them up; not to restrict maa
in sin but set him free from sin. Lost
souls are lost because they hold
unto everyone and everything but
the Loving One Christ. (Selected.)

Farm Index Skids as
Crop Prices Decline
With the Oregon index of the gen
eral level of farm prices down to 79
per cent of the 1926-1930 average at
mid-October, there has been a de
cline of 14 points from the peak of
last April, according to a review of
the agricultural situation and out
look just released by the Oregon
agricultural extension service. The
report shows that Orgon farm prices
in general are on an even level with
the average of the whole country,
but compared with October 1936 the
Oregon index is down just five
points against seven for the whole
Chief among the reasons for the
crrpat decline mav be listed the
change from a condition of drought
made scarcity a year ago, to an
abundance of farm crops from this
season's favorable growing condi
tions. Data in the report show some
decline in consumer incomes and
purchasing power since September,
but the current recession in Indus
trial and business activity could
scarcely be placed foremost as a fac
tor in carrying farm prices sharply
downward as early as mid-October
this year to a point below mid-Octo
ber 1936.
Turning to the agricultural out
look for Oregon in 1938, the report
savs that "cash income for farm fam
ily living and for savings may be
snmpwhat lower in 1938 than in
1937." Reasons for this expected sit
uation are that farm operation ex
penses will be slightly higher while
total cash income from farm market
ings probably will be somewhat
lower if the supply of farm products
is as large as seems probable and
demand is somewhat weaker as
predicted by the Bureau of Agri
cultural Economics.
County agricultural agents have
been supplied with copies of the re
port for local distribution to all citi
zens of Oregon who request it. The
