EDITORIAL . . .
Apparently some of our readers gained the im
pression that the Heppner city council is plan
ning some sort of whoopee in observance of V
Day. This is contrary to the opinion expressed by
by Mayor Turner and members of the council
present at the meeting. In truth, it was and is
their desire to refrain from noisy demonstrations
of any kind, believing that the people should ac
cept the fall of Germany as the first step to peace
the real peace coming when all of the Axis has
Mayor Turner has issued a proclamation sug
gesting tne proper observance of V-Day and out
lining the proposed closing schedule. In another
column will be found a worthy program sugges
tion from Bert Mason of lone. Tne two artxcies
agree in the main. This newspaper finds it easy
to agree with both gentlemen. The church doors
will oc open on V'-Day and if there ever was a
time when we needed to go down on our knees
and thank God it will be that day when a war
like people lay down their arms and ask for peace.
We have elected to fight on the side of right and
just.ee. We have been taught to believe that God
is always on the s.de of right and justice. We
have looked to Him for the victory is it not
right that we give Him the thanks that is H;s due?
A Hospital for AH
Seme misunderstanding appears to exist rela
'vj to the object of building a Morrow county
hiso.'til. Perhaps previous articles have not been
? trifle and to clarify the proposal let it be said
t'n': it will be a general hospita'. It is not the pur
pose of the county to erect a home for needy per
sons. Those receiving assistance from the county
" X be cared for as in the past. Only when they
are in need of hospitalization will they be placed
in the hospital.
It;is planned to have a regularly staffed hospital
prepared to take care of cases from all over the
eoiifity, as well as from nearby counties, if they
desire the services of the local institution. As
pointed out in this column bcl'ore, too many
p;oplo hav? bcn compelled to seek outside as-s':-;'.:ii!co
and ti e county should have a place where
thesr; people may be taken care cf at Lome. It
bis been found that a small tax will provide fund
V frec'in and equipping a first class hospital
:s s:m as building conditions warrant. The pro
;1 ;..:s been well received and the voters will
: ;;iva an opportunity to express their approval

Of Recent "Spell"
- According to records kept by
Len Gilliam, local weather man,
Thursday of last week was the
wtarrrvest day of 'the current "spell''
of warm weather. To the average
person venturing out on the street
there has been little difference from
day to day, but the thermometer is
a more accurate judge of heat and
cold and from it we ascertain the
Gilliam submitted figures includ
ing Thursday to Sunday showing
that Sept. 7 the mercury climbed
to 9G; Friday it dropped to 94, Sat
urday to 92 and on Sunday ad
vanced a degree to 93. I here has
been little difference since Sunday,
until Wednesday morning when
rain clouds were dispelled by wind
and a definite drop in temperature
With, the Pendleton Round-up
opening today anything can happen
in the way of weather, but it is
hoped the skies will remain clear
to give the big show a chance to re
tiinnm its position as the greatest
wild west exhibition of all.
