rate 2000 francs are required to
buy a second hand wrist watch
that would sell for $10 in the
States. There is no refrigeration
in the butcher shop; the quarters
of beef hang by the blocks where
the sun can dry them and where
swarms of flies hold a real field
day. The largest department store
in town has less stock than you
have in your main room, and its
grocery stock consists of 3 rotting
longhorns of cheese and a few
wrinkled squashes with a couple
of cans of beans tossed in. The
daily news is less than half as
large as the lone Independent used
to be and uses the same press and
type setting system. Mr. Head's job
press was much more modern. On
the days I visited it, it carried five
ads seven public notices, the war
commuinques, and a chapter from
a continued nevel that was ab
solutely all. It costs 2 francs or 5
cents.The bank occupies about the
floor space as the Farmers and
Stockgrowers used to and it has
not a comptometer, adding machine,
nor typewriter to its name. Nor, I
doubt, has it any money. The
post office employs several wom
en, but I'm sure Ruby could handle
the whole works and have more
time to spare than she has in lone.
It was there that I decided to
resurrect my high school French,
and I was most agreeably surprised
to find that we could converse eas
ily. My French was better thai
their English, so it was not I who
was embarrassed. They warmed up
considerably when I used their
language for a while and we- had
a lot of fun. Before long, I was
able to obtain some of the less
prevalent French notes and coins
which other fellows were unable
to get.
If Mike and Mabel's (Cotter)
house had the paint knocked off
and had a yard full of weeds and
trash around it, it could easily
pass for L'Hotel de ville, the city
hall. The Catholic cathedral is by
far the most impressive building
in the city, but it, too, is showing
signs of disrepair.
Excerpt from letter from Bert Ma
son, Jr. to his parents, Mr. and
Mrs. Bert Mason, lone.
Mr. and Mrs. A. H. Nelson of Lex
ington recently received a letter
from George Pointer, member of
the victorious Allied army in Africa.
They remembered him at Christmas
time with a letter and package.
Dear Friends:
Thanks a lot for the candy you
sent. Just received it yesterday,
March 20, in time for my birthday.
It was mailed Jan. 8.
I am in North Africa now. Left
England about Dec. 15. Was three
weeks on the boat and I sure was
seasick. I have seen a lot but can't
say much. It is quite a sight to see
the Arabs riding their burros and
camels. These Arabs sure know
how to charge for the things they
sell us. Tell the folks hello for me.
Your friend,
George Pointer.
Mrs. Grace Turner recently re

Dinner Swanky Affair
An over-flow attendance was re
ported at the annual Mother
Daughter banquet held in the din
ing hall of the Church of Christ
Monday evening. The ticket sale,
limited to 100, was extended to
accommodate several late comers.
Decorations and table arrange
ment reflected the times, with the
victory "V" forming the basis for
carrying out the theme.. Flags of
the allied nations were intersper
sed with large "Vs" and the Am
erican angle was apparent in the
red, white and blue candles. Place
cards were cutouts of drawings
made of Pan-American peoples
with lean-to strips pasted on the
backs to make the "people" stand
Featured speaker was . Miss .
Christobel Osborne who spoke on
"Customs in Some Pan-American
Countries." Miss Osborne spent
about 12 years in South America,
speaking Spanish fluently, and
she gave an informative talk about
our neighbors to the south.

One of those rare occurences in
newspaper reporting reared its ugly
head in the Gazette Times last
week and caused an error to ap
pear in a certain article. Or maybe
it happened at the linotype where
typogremlins get in their insidious
work occasionally. Be that as it
may, typewriter or linotype, some
new names were introduced which
formerly did not exist, leaving
some of our readers at a loss to
know how they got into the story.
In the list of names scheduled to
appear on the roll of the Eight Mile
Lutheran church at a planned ser
vice flag dedication, our reporter
listed Cpl Robert Wakefield and
Pvt Clarence Dokes, when in real
ity the original copy handed us list
ed them as Cpl Robert Warfield
and Pvt Clarence Baker. That was
pretty close but still somewhat con
fusing. Two new names were added this
week, Harold Van Horn and Nor
man Bergstrom.
Mr. and Mrs. Jack Couture left
this morning for Monument and
other John Day points to visit rel
Mrs. D. M. Ward who went to Prai

word received by his Heppner
F. W. Turner drove to Pasco this
morning to meet Mrs. Edna Turner,

Valentine will be restored to nor

&ij Joe Marsh
Almost eveiybody's figuring
what things'll be like after the
war. I talked about that today
with Jeb Crowell. Jeb he's a
veteran of the last War-says:
"One thing's sure, Joe. The
boys this time won't return and
find what we came back to."
Then he went on to mention
Prohibition . . . and I ought to
say right here that Jeb's a man
of moderation ... a glass of beer
or two is all he'll ever take. It
was the principle of the thing
that bothered hira

"Passing a law behind our
backs," he says, "was violating
just what we were fightin' for.
The very principles we fought
for in 1776. Law-inakin' without
representation is one of the most
undemocratic things we can do."
I guess we're all agreed on
that. Most folks admit we made
a mistake once . . . but the boy3
who are fighting this war can be
pretty sure we won't pull any
thing like that again!
