O Public Opinion
Shortly after his first election s
Secretary of State, Earl Snell insti
tuted his "Courtesy of the Road"
campaign, with the result that the
percentage of automobile aecidenii
in Oregon kas been greatly reduced.
There are a great many other cour
tesies that friends and neighbors ex
tend to others that make life much
more bearable and pleasant. There
are still other courtesies that the
people of Heppner could and would
extend to their neighbors, except
for carelessness and thoughtlessness.
By geographical location and cli
matic conditions, while we do some
times swelter in the heat of the old
sun during the day, we are blessed
with a cool, soothing breeze that
floats down from the mountains over
our town during the night that
makes sleep a real prospect and a
joy. Now when some neighbor, wUh
all the good intentions of a saint,
attempts to beautify his own place
and the town, by burning some old
tires, rags, feathers, offal, green
bones, etc., he pervades the cooi
night air with several foul odors.
mamy detestable smells and throo
or four individual stinks. The other
wise friendly, cooling breeze, is
transformed into a nauseating, re
pulsive anaesthesia sufficient to
sicken tne very maggots of earth,
and when this heavily laden atmos
phere floats through the open win
dow of a sleeping, respectable cit
izen, he becomes a mad man and is
likely to expose his agonized an
guish to the angelic hosts of heaven.
All of this distress can be so easily
prevented and should be avoided.
There are a number of men about
town who are ready and willing to
haul all such nauseating garbage to
the junk pile, where it can be burn
ed without offense to anyone, for so
small a sum as 50 cents to $1.00 per
month. The writer will be glad to
give the names of some of these
men, if you do not know them, but
for the love of your neighbor and
me, please do not burn that awful
stuff in town.
In many parts of town, tall dry
grass has become a serious fire haz
ard and should be burned. We will
have to tolerate the smoke from
that for a short time only, but the
fire hazard should be reduced. Do
hot attempt to burn it alone, but
get in touch with Albert Schunk,
who will assist you with sufficient
fire fighting apparatus to make the
