Thursday, Nov. 17, 1938 Heppner Gazette Times, Heppner, Oregon Page Five Mr. Abplanalp of Hermiston was a Heppner visitor yesterday, show ing a line of nursery products to prospective purchasers. A traveling salesman for many years, Mr. Ab planalp has made many friends in Morrow county who may be inter ested to know that his sight was severely affected in an automobile accident near Bend three years ago. Containers of embalming fluid in the wrecked car were broken and the fluid got into his eyes. For a time the resulting injury totally blinded him, but his vision is im proving. A third generation removed from the original Swiss home, Mr. Abplanalp explains that his name means from Plahalp, a mountain in Switzerland, and one of the few words spelled the same backward as forward. Kenneth P. Bleakman, forest as sistant who has helped with checking the elk hunters in and out and who was stationed at Ditch creek during the fire season, was in the city Tues day. He was just recovering from a flu attack, but expected to take a few days hunting himself before the season closes Sunday. Mr. and Mrs. Bleakman are rearing two baby deer found deserted early in the season, which Mr. Bleakman says are doing fine and are mighty interesting. He has been on the lookout for a three legged bull elk which he saw many times this summer, thinking that it might be easy prey for hunters. But so far it has not shown up. One leg was put out of commission by a hunter's bullet last year, he believes. Three Monument men, Homer Wil liams, Mr. Foss and Kenneth Rounds, were injured in a recent automobile accident and the car in which they were riding was completely demol ished. George Williams, also of Mon ument and fourth occupant of the car, miraculously escaped injury. Mr. Foss is in a . hospital at The Dalles with a broken leg. Homer Williams received a severe leg cut and lost much blood. Dr. J. H. McCrady is in the city today from his home at Cle Elum, Wash. He has not resumed dental practice since the automobile acci dent in which he was seriously in jured last year, and which caused his retirement from the local field, but he has made excellent progress toward complete recovery. He ex pected to go on to Portland tomor row. Mr. and Mrs. W. T. Campbell en tertained at their home Wednesday of last week for Grandma Booher of Lexington, 91-year-old Morrow county pioneer who has been visiting at the home of her daughter, Mrs. Sylvia Beymer, on Hinton creek. Present besides the host, hostess and honoree were Mr. and Mrs. Arthur Keene of Lexington. Dr. A- D. McMurdo and F. B. Nickerson returned the first of the week from their elk hunt in the high mountains. They found that the early storms had driven the elk to lower country and they came home empty-handed. Arthur Johnson, wheat raiser of the lone section, was transacting business in the city Tuesday. He re ported that moisture was still short in his section to promote best grow ing conditions for the new crop. Miss Gladys Benge of Medford was in the citv the end of the week, and was accompanied on the return by her mother, Mrs. Rosa fcskelson, who expected to spend the winter at Medford. John Voile of Irrigon and Jim Omohundro of Hermiston passed through town Tuesday morning on the way home from an unsuccessful elk hunting trip in the south moun tain country. Mr. and Mrs. F. E. Parker have received word that they are grand parents to a baby boy who arrived November 13 to Mr. and Mrs. Onez Parker, at Everett, Wash. Joe Simas of Monument is report Mr. and Mrs. C. W. McNamer en tertained at dinner this week for Mrs. Lucy Rodgers, Mrs. William Straight and Mrs. Lillian Cochran. Dr. J. P. Stewart. Eve-Sight Siec- ialist of Pendleton, will be at the HEPPNER HOTEL (in two weeks) on WEDNESDAY. November 30th. Carl Bergstrom was transacting business in the city Tuesday from the Gooseberry farm.

Mrs. Pauline ,Quaid, early day Morrow county pioneer, was here Tuesday from Portland, looking af ter business interests. G. D. Dennis of Portland visited in the city for a few hours yester day. He is a brother-in-law of Mrs. Harold Cohn. Mrs. George Howard and infant son, Richard Allen, returned home the first of the week from Heppner hospital. STATE CAPITAL NEWS GOP Victory "Her Own Wings" o Holman Decsion By A. L. LINDBECK Salem That the results of the re cent general election in this state contained many surprises goes with out saying. The landslide which swept Charles A. Sprague into the governorship, for instance, was hard' ly expected by even his most optl mistic supporters. Conservative es timates of Sprague's majority prior to the election, among those who predicted success for the Republican. candidate, ranged from 15,000 to 25,- 000. Those who dealt in larger mar gins were the rare exception. The same was true in the case of Rufus C. Holman's victory in the senatorial race. Most prognosticators predicted that the race between Holman and Willis Mahoney would be close and that Holman's margin would be a slim one, should be succeed in win ning at all. Among all of the alibis and explan ations that have been advanced to account for the sweeping Republican victory in this state' two stand out as most logical. In the first place it was a return to normalcy, Oregon being normally a Republican ' state that was only swept into the Dem ocratic column by the Roosevelt landslide of 1932 and retained there in by the popularity of New Deal policies in the elections of 1934 and 1936. This return to normalcy was speeded -by dissention in the ranks of the Democratic party which was hopelessly split into a left-wing or radical group led by Elton Watkins, Henry L. Hess and others and a con servative group commonly referred to as Martin Democrats. Many of these latter unquestionably support ed the Republican nominees in retal iation for the defeat administered I'LL BUY THAT SHOT- Wl G-UW NOW SOLD SOME W STUFF FROM THE AT77C l& I .

That Rex Putnam, state superin tendent of public instruction, a Democrat, survived the rout of his partisans in this state speaks vol umes for the calibre of this official who had the active support not only of the educators throughout the state but of a large majority of the news papers as welL When Governor Martin retired to his political tent following his de feat in the May primaries it was with a promise to his advisers that he would take no part in the general election campaign. That promise was rigidly adhered to. But on Wednes day morning, following the general election, he came out of his political retirement beaming with satisfaction over the results of the election, with the laconic comment that "Oregon still flies with her own wings." That remark can be interpreted in only one way. It was a public notice to Secretary of the Interior Harold Ickes and other members of the na tional administration that the voters of Oregon refuse to be dictated to by the powers in Washington. It will be recalled that in the primary campaign Ickes gave his blessing to Henry Hess and that throughout the general election campaign Hess as well as Willis Mahoney, democratic candidate for the United States sen ate, repeatedly resorted to the warn ing that unless they were elected the national administration could not be expected to look with favor on Oregon's future requests for PWA and WPA grants and other similar favors. All of the state institutions will pull through the biennium without a deficit according to Wallace S. Wharton, budget director. Several of the institutions will be able to return sizeable unexpended balances to the general fund, Wharton said. The results were hardly all in on Tuesday's election before the king makers began speculating on the presidency of the slte senate and the House speakership. As far as the senate is concerned it appears to be a foregone conclusion that Robert Duncan of Burns will be elected to the presidency without opposition although the name of Dean Walker of Polk and Benton has also been frequently mentioned in that connection. In the House a lively contest ap pears to be in the offing in the race for speaker. Among those mentioned for the post are E. R. Fatland of Condon, a veteran of the past three sessions; Walter Fuhrer of Salem, another veteran; Earl Hill of Lane county who will be coming back after missing the last two sessions; and Frank Lonergan of Portland, who has also staged a comeback af ter a prolonged absence from the legislative halls.

Eastern Or egon has not had this honor for several years while the coast coun ties, southern Oregon and Portland have all been recognized by elevation of their representatives to the speak ership during the past four years. ' The 1939 session will see the Re publicans in control of the House again for the first time since 1932, with 48 members of that political affiliation elected to membership in that body while the Democrats will have only 12. In the senate also the Republicans will have an over whelming majority with 23 mem bers owing allegiance to the G. O. P. while the Democrats will be able to muster only seven votes, five of these being holdovers. Senator W. A, John son of Josephine, elected county judge in Tuesday's balloting, has already submitted his resignation as a senator, and Homer Angell of Multnomah county, Congressman elect from the third district, is ex pected to resign shortly. Senator W. D. Bennett, democrat, of Multno mah county, has also announced his intention of resigning. These resig nations, however, will not change the political complexion of the sen ate, since their successors must be members of the same political party. With Rufus C. Holman now a senator-elect interest naturally centers in his resignation and his possible successor as state treasurer. Congress convenes on January 3. If Holman plans to qualify as a senator on the opening day he must necessarily re sign as state treasurer prior to that time. This would pave the way for the appointment of his successor by Governor Martin who has let it be known that, such being the case, he would name "some outstanding citi zen" who could be depended upon to carry out the good work of Treas urer Holman. However, it is not necessary that Holman qualify as a senator at the opening of the ses sion. He might postpone that step indefinitely and retain his post as state treasurer in the meantime, at least until the newly elected gov ernor, Charles A. Sprague, a re publican, has been inaugurated when he would be in a position to name the new treasurer. Holman, himself, re SHIP BY TRUCK The Dalles Freight Line, Inc.

Labor leaders have announced their intention to fight the anti picketing bill, which was adopted by the voters in Tuesday's election, through the courts, challenging the constitutionality of the measure. The measure is also expected to become the focal point for bitter controversy in the forthcoming legislature where it is expected attempts will be made to amend it, a program which can be expected to meet with vigorous opposition on the part of the agri cultural organizations which spon sored it O Ten Years Ago (Gazette Times, Nov. 22, 1928.)
