termed a building boom sucn as occurs wun uie
advent of a large manufacturing plant, a land rush,
or even a wartime industry. There have been
times when business demands have prompted a
realignment along main street or an increase in
population called for new housing facilities, but
occasional spurts may not properly be termed
booms. It is a natural condition and not stimulat
ed by prospective rapid growth. A community
built up in this manner has time to build substan
tially and avoid a mushroom growth which, if the
place holds its own throughout the years, must be
rebuilt or remain to embarrass the citizenry.
There are signs that Heppner is growin? and
is about ready for another building spurt. This is
more evident in the residential quarter at pres
ent, since housing is a problem still giving con
siderable worry. It is a situation that cannot be
greatly improved until building materials ai"e
released in sufficient quantity to permit a general
construction program. How soon this will be per
mitted is a matter of conjecture for we do not
know when the war will end. When that time
comes Heppner should be prepared with a build
ing program that will offer housing to those who
desire to locate here as well as offer better homes
to a good many now residing here. A well housed
community is a satisfied community.
It is stated that those engaged in lines of bus
iness not represented in the town are looking
arourid for locations. Unfortunately there is little
left to offer encouragement to new enterprise
unless some buildings are altered or something

is gratifying to learn that mankind has learned to
appreciate the timber resources to the extent that
each individual accepts the self-appinted task of
guardian of the forest. It has not been without se

learned, for in times past losses have been heavy,
