This troubled old world holds
lots of interest to one seeking ad
venture and travel. And if you
happen to be a member of the
Merchant Marine ybu stand a
good chance of seeing the most
active centers on the globe, with
plenty of excursions into less ex
citing but none the less interest
ing spots.
If you want to know where
a certain place is maybe one of
those unpronounceable south sea
islands, for instance-Hust ask Cy
rus "Cy" Aiken, who is in town
for a few days visiting his mother,
Mrs. Liilie Aiken and brother
Henry Aiken. Since Cy joined the
Merchant Marine he has done quite
a job of globe circling and speaks
of many- regions with a familiarity
most landlubbers acquire in talk
ing about the home town. The
South Seas, Australia, South Am
erica, Africa places we cannot
name here. There were two places
he mentioned he hadn't been
Berlin and Tokyo but he hopes to
visit both before too many years
Asked why he joined the Mer
chant Marine .he said he guessed
it was because he feels at home
on the water, for one thing, and
that he has a yen for adventure.
He hopes to visit Palestine before
his stretch is compked. He has
had his picture taken with a pyra
mid as a background .but made
no mention of having a sweetheart
in every port.

nVe to Collect
Rags Scheduled to Open Nov, 22
Prominent lone
an Succumbs to
Illness Sunday
A saddened group ' of people
gathered at the Christian church
in lone Wednesday afternoon to
pay their last respects to one who
had been a member of the com
munity the past 47 years Ed
mund John Bristow. Mr. Bristow
passed away at Hood River Sunday
to which place he went several
weeks ago for medical care, fol
lowing the shock of his son Wal
ter's untimely death.
O. Wendell Herbison, pastor of
the Church of Christ at Heppner,
officiated at the service and inter
ment was in the lone I. O. O. F.
cemetery. A large concourse of
neighbors and friends from over
the county gahered in this final
tribute to one whom they held
in high esteem.
Mr. Bristow had been ailing for
several years but had remained
on the job at the store most of
the time. He had always been an
acive man, not only in the pur
suit of his own business but in
community affairs as well. He
has been a member of the I. 0. O.
F. lodge for 26 years and also was
a member of Willows grange.
Born April 29, 1879 in Author,
Ontario, Canada, to Edmund and
Ruth Bristow, he came to the
United States at an age of 17, ac
companying the Hynd family to
Morrow county, which but for a
few months had been his home
continuously. He once disposed of
his lone interests and moved to
Idaho to engage in business but
a longing for the old home brought
him and his family back in a
short time.
On June 27, 190G, Mr. Bristow
was married to Miss Ella Wade.
To this union three children were
born. Edmund W. Bristow of Nam
jpa, Ida., Lucile Rietmann, lone,'
and Walter E. who preceded him
in death two and one-half months.
Surviving besides those mentioned
are two sisters, Mabel Hillary of
Vancouver, B. C. and Minnie R.
Hackmuth of Beverley Hills, Calif.,
one brother, Walter R. Bristow
of Vancouver B. C, and 10 grand

purpose of meeting tire inspectors
and dealers, truckers and loggers
and any oilier truck users inter
ested. Arrangements have been
made by the local office to hold the
meeting in the Elks building at
8 o'clock.
Object of the meeting is to dis
cuss the truck tire shortage and
other phases of the trucking indus
try and it is urgent that all truck
users attend the meeting, Hedric
Mr. and Mrs. R. B. Ferguson and
Mr. and .Mrs. James Valentine left
Tuesday for Spokane to entrain
for Rochester. Minn., and other
points east. The trip is being made
primarily for Mrs. Valentine to
have a check up at the Mayo hos
pital The Fergusons had expected
to visit their son Kay at , Fargo, N.
D., but he was transferred to Texas
after the plans were made. The
party will be gone several weeks.
Mrs. Edmund 0. Schraeder and
little daughter Wendy reumed
to Heppner Wednesday of last week
after an absence of several weeks
spent in California with husband
and father, Lt. Col. Schraeder, who
has returned to duty and is now
in India.
Mr. and Mrs. Harold Cohn have
as their guests this week Mrs.

Camp 5 Gas,
Tire Rationing
Now Done Here
Set-up Changed to
Provide Convenient
Service to Workers
An order has been issued by the
state administrator of the Office of
Price Administration changing
Camp 5 of the Kinzua Pine Mills
company from the jurisdicion of
the Wheeler county rationing board
to the Morrow county raioning
board The order is the result of a
movement launched last spring
when residents of the camp ex
pressed a preference to be served
by the Heppner office due to the
difficulties of travel between Wet
more and Fossil.
The local board is setting up the
machinery including appointment
of camp representatives on the
mileage panel of the Heppner board
with full authority to recommend
pnd to assist in the rationing of
both tires and gasoline in confor
mance with the regulations as set
forth by the Office of Price Ad
ministration. C. F. Hall has been
named chairman; Lewis Provo, is
suing clerk, and Lester Harris,
ridesharing officer. All three men
are veterans of World War 1, two
of them having sons in service in
the present war, Legionnaires were
selected since the Legion is taking
over the work of administering
.ride-sharing and gas saving every
where. Application blanks have boen
sent to all car drivers in the camp
who will mail them in and then
pick up their books through the
local office.
A large percentage of the work
ers and their families at Camp 5
do their trading and seek recrea
tion in Heppner. Since construc
tion of a paved road from the
camp to the Heppner -Spray high
way it has been an easy trip to
town, although the distance is
greater than out the other way.

a MA'a fci-jr
vv lfll.l fcfcTJrj
That Heppner and much of the
county face a fuel shortage, a sit
uation that may become acute as
winter draws on, is a matter com
manding serious thought on the
.part of numerous citizens. It was
a topic of conversation at the
chamber of commerce luncheon
Monday and was considered of
enough importance to warrant ap
pointment of a committee to in
vestigate. Frank Turner was giv
en the job with authority to se
lect fellow members.
Such investigation as the com
mittee has been able to make so
far reveala that the fuel shortage
is not something that may occur
but a reality. Many people fortu
nately have their winter fuel sup
ply while as many more have not
enough to see them through. Fuel
dealers, particularly those hand
ling coal, are sold out and have
for quite some time been ration
ing their supplies to make small
stocks spread over a lot of ter
ritory. Necessarily, this spread
has been thin and some of the
customers are seeking more fueL
Coal dealers have had orders in
for more fuel for many weeks
and can give no satisfactory re
ply regarding receipt of shipments.
They may get part of their or
ders and they may not get any of
them. Booking of new orders is
out. The man who comes in and
demands three tons may get as
much ag three sacks if there is
any coal in stock. The same holds
true with the wood supply at the
mill. The fuel department ia
booked months ahead and can not
reasonably accept further orders.
There is no wood being cut com
mercially in the mountains. And
there you have the picture.
There is a possibility that log
ging trucks may be employed to
haul wood for a few days if the
city or some other responsible or
