Councilman Nickerson, street
and sidewalk chairman, report
ed making a survey of a con
siderable portion of the city's
sidewalks and regretted to state
that some of them are in a sad
state of repair. Cork elm trees
came in for some condemnation
by members of the council. This
type of shade tree, of which
there are a good many, are cred
ited with causing much of the
breaking up of the concrete
sidewalks. Mayor Lanham ask
ed Nickerson to continue his in
spection, offering the services of
Superintendent Orve Rasmus in
checking the districts where im
provement is badly needed.
Names of property owners whose
walks are in bad repair will be
taken down and reported to the
There was some discussion re
lative to building walks along
parts of streets now having them
on one side only, but nothing
definite was done as the coun
cil is more concerned about re
pairing existing walks to make
them safe and protect the city
against damage suits.
Monday night's session was
adjourned to Wednesday evening
to meet with L. R. Stockman, en
gineer for the proposed water
Improvement program. Stock
man later informed Mayor Lan
ham that he could not get here
before Thursday and the meet
ing will be held this evening.
Mayor Lanham announced
that E. R. Huston had resigned
as bookkeeper for the water de
partment and asked for sugges
tions about collecting the water
bills. Several suggestions were
made and the matter will not be
settled until some of the propo
sals can be thoroughly investi
gated. Mr. Huston felt he could
no longer do the work due to
failing eyesight. City Attorney
J. J. Nys acted as recorder at
Monday's session.

More 4-H Clubbers
Needed in County
More young folk participating
In 4-H club activities in the
county Is the immediate need,
Miss Katherine Monahan, home
demonstration agent told the
luncheon group of Heppner
chamber of commerce at Mon-
lay's luncheon.
About 200 children are engag
ed in club activities at the pre
sent time, Miss Monahan stated,
and this number should be in
creased if full benefit of the
work is to be obtained. The in
crease will come by enlisting
he grade school youngsters
those just old enough to take
up the work she pointed out.
Older children, those of junior
high school age may retain an
interest for a year or two and
hen they suddenly become too
grown up. The child starting
n at an early age usually re
mains up to high school and
many of them 'until finishing
high school.
There are projects to Interest
any child and it is hoped to se
cure enough leaders in the
county to give all the children
who wish to take up club work
the right type of leadership.
Don Heck, retiring manager
of the Pacific Power & Light
company in the Heppner dis
trict, bade farewell to the cham
ber of commerce, which he stat
ed had been a source of enjoy-
men to him In his nearly a year s

Dr. L. D. Tibbies explained
he proposed improvements to
the city's water system, using
the engineer's map to point out
where changes will be made and

It was announced that the
club will eat at the school house

Land Practices in
1947 Laid Down by
AAA Committee
Local Projects to
Be Benefited by
Bulletins outlining land prac
tices in 1947 under the agricul
tural adjustment administration
have been mailed to farmers by
the loofll office. These practices
the community committees a
were adopted at a meeting of
few weeks ago.
The bulletin says that to earn
a payment in 1P47 you must;
Have your farm plan complet
ed before May 1.
Get prior approval of all prac
tices before work is started.
Regarding wheat, there is to
be no burning. It will disqual
ify the whole field for a trashy
fallow payment.
To earn a payment for plow
ing under stubble (D-8-c) the
field must' be Inspected before
There is no payment for con
tour drilling alone. Practice D-3
requires that all tillage opera
tions be on the contour. Work
the headlands first so as not to
destroy the effect of the contour.
Payment is 75 cents per acre.
If you require help In determin
ing contour lines or if technical
assistance is needed, apply to
Heppner Soil Conservation dis
trict. The service is free.
The soil conservation service
likewise offers free assistance
in leveling land for irrigation.
Plans must be submitted to the
county office for approval. Also,
green manure crops must be in
spected before plowing under.
In conclusion, the bulletin
says the purpose of the program
is two-fold to save the soil for
ourselves and for those who
come after us and at the same
time to get the greatest bene
fits from our farming operations.
Ice Coated Snow
Makes Travel Easy
A timely cold snap in latter
February made easy travel over
solid drifts to the North Jones
Prairie snow course for Joe Gjer
tson, assistant ranger for the
Heppner dUitriet and -Mr: Ben-'
nett, water master from Pendle
ton. Bennett was a bit perturbed
because of the frozen condition
at ground level as a heavy snow
fall at this time could lead to
rapid runoff and possible floods.
Average snow depth at this
recording was 13.6 inches with
5.9 inches water.
Gjertson stated it is encour
aging to note how the seeming
ly worthless stands of young
lodgepole, fir, and larch, cover
ing the steep slopes, still clutch
to a considerable blanket of
snow. The interwoven, sponge
like mass of roots, with the pro
tection of overhead shade, regu
late spring runoff supplying a
more even, continuous stream
flow, so essential to land man
agement, he staled.
The danger lies in areas now
denuded of protective cover by
fire or man-caused reasons, the
forester said. The speed of their
return to productivity will de
pend upon good management.
One of the prime objectives of
the Forest Service is to protect
and maintain an adequate
ground cover lor watershed re
gulation. "We can protect wa
tersheds through public cooper
ation in fire prevention," Gjert
son concluded.
Buddy Blakely was a week
end visitor in Heppner, stopping
here enroute from his home in
Boise, Ida., to Portland to visit
his mother, Mrs. Frances Blake
ly and sister Jeahnette.

February Rainfall
Light in County
Gooseberry rainfall during
the month of February was a
little more than three times
that recorded in Heppner, fig
ures released by Leonard Carl
son and Len Gilliam show.
Out in the wheat country west
of Heppner a rainy spell begin
ning on Feb. 11 and extending
to Feb. 16, a total of .79 of an
inch fell. This was .17 of an inch
better than Feb. 1946, the re
cords show.
In Heppner, where rainfall re
cords have on the average been
slightly better than the Goose
berry section, Observer Gilliam
was able to show only .26 of an
inch for the month.
Most of the last half of the
month was cold. Temperatures
were low at night and raised
considerably during the day,
but nothing occurred to cause
much damage to fall sown grain

The high open terrain of south I
central Oregon and the habit of
antelope herds to range widely
in this type of country provides
an ideal situation for aerial ob

The church was banked with

Turner was accorded.
Active pallbearers were form
er students under Mr3. Turner
and included Danny Dinges, Joe
Way, Albert Edwards, Sam Mc
Millan and Vester Thornburg of
Lexington, and Paul Brown of
Heppner. Honorary pallbearers
were J. O. Rasmus, Len Gilliam

2, 1884, on Shutler Flat near Ar

and Teressa Couch Cochran, eas-
tern Oregon pioneers. While she
was a small girl the family mov

where she received her grade
school education with the excep
tion or the eighth grade, which
she completed in Heppner, going
on through the high school here
to graduate in 1905, being one
of a class of five. School records
show that she was employed in
tne tail of 1905 to teach in the
Heppner grade school, being the
first graduate from the local
school to be put back in as a
Responding to her insatiable
desire for more learning, she en

Dut illness forced her to give
up college life after a few mon
ths and she returned to her local
teaching position, remaining in
the Heppner school until 1909,
when on December 25 of that
year she was married to Frank
W. Turner. Children came into
the home and teaching was dis
pensed with for a few years, but
when the children were of school
age she resumed her work in the
schoolroom. After teaching a
few years in the Heppner school
she accepted the position of
principal of the eighth grade at
Lexington and with the excep
tion of one year spent at Hard
man, remained there until three
years ago when ill health forced
her to retire. She taught 18
years at Lexington in all. It was
recalled by members cf her fam
ily that her earliest teaching ex
perience was at Gooseberry in
this county and Deer creek in
Grant county.
