Sought by Lions
In New Campaign
Service vs. Exploita
tion Theme of
i Arousing public consciousness to
civic betterment through beauuiui
lawnii and gardens is the objective
of a movement started at the Mon
day Lions luncheon when M. L. Case,
B. C. Pinckney and C. J. D. Bau
man were named on a committee to
and means of promot-
ing a widespread interest in making
more attractive yards.
wv.o r.Vitrs mav hoDe to acconv
plish in raising lawns, flowers and
shrubs has been seen m many in
stances in the past, the club discus
sion revealed, and if general appre
ciation of the home beautiful theme
be instilled, the city's ensemble ap
pearance and the citizens' pride in
home and city will be greatly im
proved, it was believed. ,
While development of the compe
tition among home owners was dis
cussed by the club, the committee
preferred creation more of a coop
erative spirit in attaining the ends
of the campaign, in discussing the
matter later. They believed citizens
generally would be receptive to
helpful suggestions on how, what,
when and where to plant; and other
ideas and instructions, and it was
believed the club could better serve
in assisting with dissemination of
such information than by offering
prizes in a contest. '
"Service, yes; exploitation, no," was
the advice given Heppner's service
club by Clifford Trout, Christian
minister in the city from Waitsburg,
in a short inspirational talk. The
speaker gave the quoted words as
the proper success formula for any
business or profession.
The degree of success of any bus
iness or professional man depends
upon his willingness and ability to
serve. Every man's talents should
be applied to service to his fellow
man in his chosen field, Trout said,
and let no man be ashamed of his
work who is so using his talents. The
business or profession which exploits
will soon be found out, and the com
petitor who truly serves will endure
,v.lir. rpsnpct and natronage.
