Official Paper for Morrow County
NEW PUBLISHES COMING
For the past month, our paper
has been put out under serious
difficulties. With the sudden re
signation of both our editor and
printer at the same time, . we have
tried to keep the paper alive for
our subscribers and advertisers.
We know it has not been as good
as it should be, but we have done '
the best we could under the cir
cumstances. Beginning with the
next issue the Heppner Gazette
Times will be published by Mr. and
Mrs. O. G. Crawford, and. we hope
it will be a bigger and better paper

From where I sit , . .
ly Joe Marsh
In the square of a little village not
ir.v from here I came on the pret
tiest flower garden you ever saw. .
It was a lot of flowers all mixed
UT'-fcuwJrc'ds of different kinds, I
guess. .c-;o I ar.ked a passerby if he
could toll rue about it. '
"Well," ha says, "in this town
v. liehever anybody plants a flower
gnnk-n and has any seeds left,'
they scatter them over this plot."
'i i.ei! he leiius over and pulls out
a i:c!;ie of weeds. "We all have to
he;;) pull out the weeds too," he
tetix mo. ."That way the village has
a ,ver garden to be proud of."
That's about as pretty an illus
tration of co-operation as I ever
coma across. But there's plenty of
examples of co-operation and civic
spirit these days.
We were talking just yesterday
about how the brewers and the beer
distributors are working together
and co-operating with law enforce
You see a lot of friendship and
fin? o'd customs have grown up

around beer. Rut the weeds well
they've got to he puhed out, too.
Everybody has to lend a hand.
And the brewing industry is just
sensible enough to recognize that
. . . But what's more they're do
ing something about it.
The brewers don't-want their
beer sold in the wren? kind of
places, and so they've teamed up
with the authorities in a self
regulation program to make care
less beer retailers "clean up or'
close up," as they say.
From what I read, the plan is
working out mighty su".: ful in
a number of states," and i r..l-
in' out into others.
From where I sit, it l:,z , ':z a
fine idea ... a mighty practical ex
ample of how honest co-operation
works out to the benefit of every
onethe brewers, the beer retail
ers, and us plain citizens that like
our gardens and our pleasures
with the weeds kept out.
