Planning Will Help
Acting upon a suggestion from the department
of commerce the Heppner chamber of commerce
is studying the question of post-war planning with
a view to providing employment for returning
service men. Up to the present there has not been
sufficient time to give the subject the attention it
deserves and efforts so far have been directed
towards suggesting possible industries and im
provements that will absorb many of the returning
soldiers and saildrs.
It is realized that property improvements will
form a nucleus for a considerable amount of post
war improvement. This will come about naturally,
for practically every farm and ranch in the coun
try will have some building or alteration laid
aside for the time when building materials will
be available. Doubtless that source will absorb a
substantial portion of men seeking that type of
employment. In addition, it may safely be stated.
that many more will find employment in town in
building projects, civic improvements and other
lines. Many investors in war bonds no doubt plan
to. spend those funds in improvements and there
should be a tidy sum available in this county.
Another angle claiming the attention of the
chamber of commerce is the matter of acquiring
new, permanent industries. That field will be
studied in succeeding meetings with the hope
something tangible may be worked out. Conver
sion of more of our raw products into the finished
article is the desire of the group and while there
is no expectation of a development here that
would create a boom, it is Felt that there are re
sources which can be developed that will create
more jobs and bring more permanent prosperity

Nazis. He warned that news of any such move was
being spread by the Nazis to weaken if possible
the present pressure being brought upon the reich
through the medium of almost constant bombing.
It is either that or the possibility that the German
mind has conceived the bright idea that an offer
of peace at this time, when it is inevitable that the
Allies will prosecute the offensive with the ex
pectation of knocking out the enjemy early in
1944 at an acknowledged heavy price in men and
materiel, would postpone such an attack or soften
the unconditional surrender terms.
It appears that the Nazis are doing some wish
ful thinking. If the intentions of the Allied high
command are understood there is but one purpose
in mind and that is to bring Hitler and his outlaw
horde to their knees. This may take a few weeks,
a few months or another year. Despite heavy loss
es the Germans still have a powerful fighting ma
chine. They have lost air supremacy and their
naval strength has been crippled, but they are
powerful on land, and war strategists contend that
the final peace will come when our land forces f
have overpowered those of the enemy.
If we have been laboring under the impression
that the battle for Europe is about over we will
have to change our way of thinking. There is no
thing against hoping we need lots of that but
it is not the time to slack up the war effort. If we f
do that we are merely playing into Hitler's hands.
We must continue to buy bonds and to back up
our armed forces in every possible way.
