Editor's Note The following ar
ticle was received the first of the
week from H. L. Keyte, old time
printer who helped assemble the
plant and put out the first issue
of the Heppner Gazette. He might
have written at greater length, but
the fish are biting in the Rogue
and he felt the urge to run down
and see if he couldn't catch a sal
mon. We are grateful to hun for
his contribution and trust he will
write again when some event of
those early days comes to mind.

the birth of the Heppner Gazette

the merchants of the town to put
up the cost of the plant and he

patronage. But after getting a paper
started it seemed necessary for him
to sell his interest in it in order to

not close its season with a concert
this year and in its stead has in
vited the public to participate in
another community sing at 8 p. m.
Tuesday, May 4. The affair will be

the community sings have proved
popular the committee in charge of
the closing meeting favored that
type of entertainment.

bers from some of the light operas,
incuding "Showboat., "Naughty

and others. There will be other songs
