Morrow County's
March "E" Bond
Quota Exceeded
Half-month Pehiod
Shows Purchases
Up to 128 Percent
Figures released early this week
by the state "E" bond chairman's
office revealed that Morrow county
has topped all other counties in the
state in the sale of "E" series bonds
for the period of March' 1-15. This
interesting news was given the Ga
zette Times by P. W. Mahoney,
county "E" bond chairman, who
expressed keen pleasure in the re
sult of purchases here which put
the county out ahead with a count
of 128 per cent.
Morrow county's quota for the
month of March was $22,000. Up to
March 15 sales totaled $28,181.
Wallowa , County with 96.7 per
cent was next in line, followed by
Hood. River county with 95.7 per
cent. Multnomah county with a
quota of $3,721,500 ,had attained
$25,000, with the sales running to
86.7 per cent. Wallowa's quota was
$24,187. Hood River, with a quota
of $48,000 had sold $45,944 of the
issue up to March 15.
"While other counties doubtless
will atttain their quotas, it remains
to be seen whether they will reach
the high figure of Morrow county,"
Mahoney , stated "Due to income
tax payments ,it had not been ex
pected that purchases of the bonds
would run so heavy in the fore part
of the month. It is gratifying not
to have to make. a-. drive to attain
the month's quota, although there
may be necessity for such effort a
little later, in the year," Mahoney
Our Men
In Service
Recently at North Canton. O.. the
Hoover company was presented
with the Army-Navy "E" for out
standing work in war production.
Presentation was made made by
Col. H. M. Reed all and was c
cepted by President H. W. Hoover
for the company and A. O. Mus
grave as representative of the em
ployees. The significance of this
presentation insofar zs Morrow
county is concerned lies in the fact
that O. A. Musgrave is a brother
of J. E. Musgrave, lower Rhea
creek farmer.
Mr. Musgrave said in part: "Wear
ing these buttons will remind us of
a much-coveted attainment. A pa
triotic goal has been achieved. We
are keeping step with our comrades
in arms. To us they are medals of
honor medals for service on a job
we know is vitally important ....
Many of us have sons or brothers
or buddies in the armed forces. We
are ever mindful of the fact that
as we are faithful in our perfor
mance here, we are helping them.
I know I am voicing the sentiments
of all my fellow workers when I
say we will not fail in our duty.
We are not working simply to win
a star. We are working to WIN A
WAR, and return our boys safely

Heppner, Oregon, Thursday, March
Farmer Controlled
Ownership Aim of
Grain Products Inc.
Grain Growers of
Area Invited to
Invest in Stock
Farmers will be raising the grain
to be used in alcohol manufacture
and should be given every oppor
tunity to realize additional profits
through , ownership of stock in the
concern, lhat was the sentiment of
stockholders of Grain Products,
Inc., as expressed by Clyde Denney,
vice president of the organization,
speaking to a group of some GO in
terested persons gathered at the
Oddfellows hall Sunday afternoon
to learn more about industrial al
cohol production. Denney presided
at the meeting in the absence of
C. H. Hanscom of Athena, presi
dent, who was unable to be present.
Denney stated the company had
two methods of financing to choose
from. Onewas to borrow from the
government, the other to sell re
maining stock. Stating , that .the pre
ference of the directors was for in
teresting more farmers in the pro
ject, he pointed to the fact that
most of the stock sold up to the
present is held by farmers or
people engaged! in agricultural pur
suits. He also stated that the or-'
ganization is cooperative in spirit
alhough operated under corpora
tion regulations.
; JphasH. Boden .engineer for the
company, was plied with questions
which he answered to the. satisfac
tion of his listeners. He revealed
facts concerning construction costs,
output, profits, by-products and
other items broupght to his atten
tion by questioners.
One item which seemed to have
special appeal to farmers and stock
men was the matter of mash for
stock feed Boden explained that
the protein content of the grain is
left in the mash and this, mixed
with other grains makes an excel
lent stock food. He repeated figures
to the effect that this refuse is suf
ficient to feed 1,000 cattle 'or 5,000
hogs. To handle this mash success
fully, he stated, it will be necessary
to put in a dryer in connection
with the distillery. Otherwise it
would be practically impossible to
dispose of the by-product.
Leslie E. Crouch, Grain Products,
Ins. attorney, was present and ans
wered questions on legal phases of
the project. Frank Waller, one of
the original promoters of the grain
alcohol movement, also was in at
tendance. Numerous farmers present sub
scribed for stock after the meeting
and it is expected that as much of
the remaining stock as will be need
ed to complete financing construc
tion of the plant and carrying over
for a reasonable time after it goes
into operation will be subscribed
by grain growers of the district.
Mr. and Mrs. Orville Smith re
turned Tuesday from Naches,
Wash., their former home, where
they enjoyed a short visit with re
latives. They were accompanied by
Mr. Smith's brother, Ensign Har
old Smith, who was on leave from
the navy. Ensign Smith is a mem
ber of the "CB's" and stated that
this is one of the most efficient
branches of the entire service.
Through the office of Frank W.
Turner, a deal was completed this
week transferring ownership of the
Melissa Huston property to Terrill
Benge. The property has been va
cant for some time and is being
put into shape for occupancy,
Mr. and Mrs, William Bucknum,
Helen Healy and Kingsley Chapin
were Pendleton visitors Monday.

Potential Food
Supply Distributed
Here Monday P.A1.
Morrow county's food supply
was given a boost Monday whrn
two trucks from the Oak Springs
hatchery at Maupin planted car
goes of rainbow trout in Willow and
Rhea creeks. The trout were from
six to eight inches in length and
will be ready to fight it out with
anglers in the forth-coming season.
Since- the "state fish and game
commission does the rationing on
fkh it is likely that existing limits
will be in vogue at least until
fomeone becomes convinced that
fishermen are living too much on
the "fat of the land."
Under the direction of J. Logie
Richardson and J. O. Rasmus, the
fish were taken to headquarters
of the two streams and turned out
on their own, 2730 in Willow creek
and 2500 in Rhea creek.
Tom Wilson, instructor of the
garden class which has been meet
ing in the domestic science room
at the school for several weeks,
wishes to inform members of the
class that "another meeting which
he is scheduled to attend will make
it necessary to omit the Friday
evening class this week.
The class is nearing the comple
tion of the course and it was de
cided to again hold Friday sessions
to end it sooner than originally
planned. "Students" are eager to
put into practice the knowledge
they have gained from the classes.

Meats-Fats Order
Goes in Effect
Monday Morning
Point System to
Govern Purchases
Under New Order
Mr. and Mrs. America will have
to prepare to take their belts up
another notch or two next Monday,
for that is the date when food items
coming under meats-fats classifi
cation will go on the point ration
ing system. This classification in
cludes meats, cheeses, fats and oils,
end canned fish in the newest and
largest wartime food rationing pro
gram yet instituted.
Examination of the "official table
of consumer point values," released
by the office of price administra
tion, which every seller of the new
ly rationed foods will be required to
display in his store, discloses that
meats-fats rations are relatively
more liberal than the ration of pro-'
oessed foods. The weekly allotment
of 16 points per person, represent
ed by red stamps in war ration book
two, compares with an average
weekly allotment of 12 points per
person under, the canned goods pro
gram. On a "per pound" basis, the
point values of individual item
under the meat-fats program are
sharply lower.
Almost all popular meat cuts'
have point. values of eight points
pound and less. Butter is 'assagWed
a 1 value . of eight points a. pound
and a similar point value is glroa
to all of the rationed cheeses. All
canned fish Is valued at semi
points a pound
OPA officials emphasized that
while the- first point values under
the new program have been set
with the most careful regard to
supply and consmer preferences, it
is not possible to gauge these and
other factors in advance with ab
solute accuracy. Adjustments will
be made whenever they are indi
cated to be necessary by actual -operations
under the program.
A list of the principal items on
the official consumer point table in
terms of points per pound follows:
Porterhouse (T-bone) steak, sir
loin steak, round steak and flank
Standing rib roast, (7 -in. cut.)
Veal loin chops, cutlets and calf
Loin lamb chap, boneless lamb
