A Good Rood Program
It an not be predicted what attitude the highway commission
will take towards the highway set-up in Morrow county, but the
program advocated by the county court and citizens is a good one
and merits the backing of all who are interested in better roads.
Thia newspaper has pointed out from time to time the desira
bility of securing direct highway connection with the Monument
district. The county court, city of Hcppner, forest service, and
roads committee of Hie Heppner chamber of commerce are in ac
cord relative to the proposed road. The people of Monument and
vicinity would appreciate a direct route out this way and a con
siderable volume of trade would result from such a road. In addi
tion to the practical commercial value there is also the matter of
opening up more mountain playground.
Some of the court's requests, backed by the chamber of com
merce, have been granted. Oiling of the Oregon-Washington high
way from the Hanna ranch to Lena was accomplished a few years
ago. Completion of the Heppner-Condon highway is in sight. High
way 207 between Lexington and Buttercreek, or the Morrow-Umatilla
county line, is in the process of being rebuilt. That leaves the
Ruggs-Hardman section of the Heppner-Spray highway to be re
built and surfaced. The county court will ask that this improve
ment be extended as far as the mouth of Chapin creek. Heavy
hauling over that section from Parker's Mill turn-off rqto Hepp
ner has been hard on the grade and much of it needs rebuilding.
Completion of these units will give the county a good highway
system under the state set-up. The county also has a road program
designed to give each district a trunk line. It will take a number
of years to make any appreciable progress in that direction but it
is a step in the right direction.
It looks like the country is ging to be well swept this fall, what
with both major political parties predicting clean sweeps.

POLITICAL DOG DAYS
ith the general election 90
days in the offing, just now it
looks like the coming campaign
will be the quietest in decades.
So it looks from the outside.
From the inside little has leak
ed, but that little is potent. De
mocratic national strategists
have been quietly working in
Oregon for the past three
weeks. Republican organizers
are spactically laboring to block
pacification of the CIO and
AFofL for a united front to be
joined bv agricultural organi
zations. Word has been passed
down the line for workers to
give their employers efficient
service plus. This to ease the
shortage of commodities and
nullify anti-labor propaganda.
The lafbor-aericulture aggran
dizement, the democratic coor-
dinators reckon, should carry
the state; the labor vote to win
in Multnomah county and the
labor-agriculture combination to
win in the up-state counties.
This s ounds like a big order in
a republican state like Oregon
and gives the seasoned GOP
party councillors a belly laugh.
However, a big smoke signal
from the White House warns
that soon after the next con
gress pulls the stick back things
will happen that will interest
Oregon agriculturists in having
a democratic congressional de
legation representing the state.
Already threats from Washing
ton jeopardize heavy federal ap
propriations that have long been
planned for Oregon.
