Should Be Annual Affair
Speaking in behalf of the small group of Hep
pner people who have been privileged to attend
the concerts, some or all of them, given under the
Civic Music Association at Vert Memorial in Pen
dleton throughout the winter months, it will be
quite acceptable if Pendleton decides to make
this an annual affair provided, of course, Hepp
ner will be permitted to buy season tickets.
It is one thing to hear big-name talent over the
radio and quite another thing to see the same
people performing. The talent heard at Pendle
ton this winter doesn't quite rate top billing but
liners and Mr. John Public would scarcely notice
any one of them could fill in for some of the top
The season coming to a close next Wednesday
evening with the appearance of the piano duo, has
been a delight to music lovers who have crowded
the Memorial building to capacity. Sponsors need
have no fear that announcement of a course next
' season will lack spontaneous support.
There Must Be Some Good . . .
March weather has not been conducive to sweet
ening the disposition and there is the consolation
that it will last only 16 days longer. However, out
of all this bluster, the soil has been receiving
moisture and some of our farmer friends tell us
that crop prospects right now are good. That is
satisfying, especially coming at a time when ev
erybody feel about as low as the proverbial under
side of a snake, what with Morgenthau's agents
putting the pressure on. It is comforting to realize
that while all our money is going out right now
there will be some coming in next fall.
One farmer relates that about six weeks ago
he was building fence. The ground was dry after
penetrating the surface. During the past few days
the fence building was resumed and this time it
required just five dips of the post-hole digger to
reach the required depth. Naturally he looks for
fairly heavy yield this year. N
Receipts for forest reserve rentals
in Oregon for the year 1944, total
ing $696,254.33, were distributed to
31 counties this week by Robert S.
Farrell, as secretary of state.
The 1944 total is considerably
greater than any for the past few
years, partially as a result of in
creased timber sales due to wartime
demands for lumber, Farrell said.
In 1943, the distributed amounted to
$362,766; in 1942 it totaled $206,007-
.02; and in 1941 it was $183,836.27.
The fund goes to the 31 counties
in which forest reserves are locat
ed. The fund allotted to each coun
ty depends on the acreage of forest
area it contains. There is a total of
14,358,088 acres in the 31 Oregon
counties containing federal forest
VISITS TWICE IN WEEK
C. M. Kennedy, prominent stock
man of the lower Hay creek area

diamond rings look alike, but experts who

quality creations there's a difference. The
difference embraces fine diamond quality, su
