Get Ready for "Victory Loan"
While in the midst of a national campaign to
raise funds for various war relief agencies we
are reminded that the eighth war loan, only this
time it is to be a "Victory Loan", is just around
the corner. A mere eleven billion dollars is needed
by "Uncle" to finish up the job of making Ger
many and Japan behave and getting our boys and
As in previous drives, the newspapers are
asked to play an important role in the forthcom
ing campaign. Some of our advertisers and read
ers may have gained the impression that we were
taking advantage of the drives to increase adver
tising sales, to which we can only reply that we
were doing what was asked of us. To make that
point clear we submit a letter issued by the Sec
retary of the Treasury to newspapers and adver
tisers all over the land. It reads:
"Newspapers and their advertisers have coop
erated excellently with previous bond drives and
the Treasury needs your assistance this time more
than ever. Obligations incurred in the achieve
ment of victory have been tremendous. We must
bring the boys home as soon as possible, care
for the wounded, supply mustering-out pay, and
maintain occupational forces in Germany and
Japan. These and other aftermath-of-war respon
sibilities make the success of the "Victory Loan"
a must for our nation."
Fred L. Vinson,
Secretary of the Treasury
Throughout the war the various agencies of
the government army, navy, treasury, etc. have
recognized the value of newspaper advertising in
getting their messages and needs over tohe pub
lic and no small amount of the success of the
various fund raising events has been credited to
a more or less formative stage and that there is
nothing definite except, perhaps, where larger
towns are concerned?
Laying aside the indefinite prospects it is wor
thy of note that Heppner could use a federal
building. It is customary to house the postoffice
and other federal agencies in such buildings and
we have both forest service and agricultural ad
ministrative offices now renting office space in a
local building. There is nothing wrong with that,
either, but the fact that we have these agencies
.all of which could use more space to good ad
vantage, furnishes a basis for demand for a fed
Those of our citizens who think we have good
reason for asking for a federal building should
get in touch with our congressman and urge act
ion on the matter.
G. Sherer, director of social hygi
ene, Oregon T-B association will
appear on the program.
Mr. and Mrs. E. E. Gonty are

A Federal Building Here?
Reading a list of proposed appropriations for
federal buildings in Oregon we came upon an
item of $95,000 for a building in Heppner. This
news gave rise to a feeling of jubilance, what with
a proposed county hospital to cost upwards of
$100,000, and we thought the future for the little
city looked rosy indeed.
Perhaps, gentle reader, you too read the list if
appropriations and you too were elated. But did
you read far enough to find the whole thins; is in
This Is National Fire Week
This particular seven day period of the current
year is designated as National Fire week a time
set apart for the people to learn all they can about
fire hazards and how to avoid them. We learn
plenty about fires from almost daily accounts in
the newspapers but why they happen is the other
side of the picture which not enough of us take
time to study.
Some fires may start from natural causes but
in most instances they are due to carelessness.
Failure to remove trash from the furnace room or
the storing of combustible matter where a care
lessly dropped match may readily ignite it these
are practices in common with hundreds of others
that contribute to our national fire loss approxi
mating one-half . billion dollars annually to say
nothing of the frightful loss of human life.
We are aDDroaching the heaviest fire loss
month of the vear December. Let us see that
furnace rooms are cleared of debris, flues are
are made, safe and above all refrain from use of
explosive materials in lighting, fires. It is always
better to be safe than sorry.
Return of cigarettes to counters has its draw
backs, according to Harry Van Horn. When
there was a scarcity of the commodity shoppers
got around almost the first thing in the morning,
with !he hope they could get at least one package.
Now that they know they can get cigarettes any
time they do their shopping just about that way
especially right at closing time.
