Not A One-Sided Matter
The Chamtior of Commerce is not to be con
jured for endorsing House Bill 476, a measure
calling for a heavier allocation of state high
way funds to cities and towns, yet if the step was
ts!;en without due consideration of the general
highway situation it might have been a bit hasty.
There is no doubt about the need for repairs
to streets in towns traversed by highways, and
nearly every town now has a public road of one
type or another, and most of those towns could
do with a little outside assistance, especially
since they have made a contribution to the state
fund. Speaking from first hand experience, it can
safely be said that Heppner needs several thou
sand dollars to improve the condition of streets
and the assistance received from the state high
way fund the past two years has been most ac
ceptable. Otherwise, a levy of some kind would
have to be put on private property.
The question is whether or not the League of
Oregon Cities is pressing the claim a bit too far
and may or may not jeopardize the state high
way program. Not a few Main streets throughout
the state have been paved and are being main
tained by the state highway department. Hepp
ner, for instance, has upwards of one and one
half miles of state paving. The town has more
oiled gravel streets than the average small city,
too, but that is the town's own affair so f.-.r cs
maintenance is concerned except for assistance
already given by the highway department
If it is a question of curtailing highway devel
opment outside of corporate limits, we believe
the Chamber of Commerce will agree that we
should not seek more highway funds for the cities
and towns. Many miles of highway remain to be
built in the county, some of it by the county and
some of it by the state. The thing the town should
be most interested in is attracting trade from the
outside to see that access to the town is made
easier for those who would come here to patron
ize our places of business. We have a highway
project to the interior under consideration which
means more to the town than the acquisition of
a few thousand dollars state assistance to repair
the streets. A substantial, steady trade will more
than make up the difference throughout the
years, and trade business, if you please is the
life blood of a town.
If w e have any bouquets to hand out this week
they should, without question, go to the group
of young men who are bringing to completion at
lone a project which some of their elders thought
would be too big an undertaking. With the same
undaunted spirit and young American courage
that were such dynamic forces in stopping the
aggressors in the recent World War, these chaps
set about to make them an organization home
that they f nd their older brothers could be proud
of. This they have succeeded in doing most ad
mirably. and on Saturday evening of this week
the public will be given an opportunity to see
the results of their labors wh,en the lone Legion
hall will be re-opened with a big public dance.
The Gazette Times joins in extending heartiest
consraiul tl:ns to lone post No. 95, American
Legion upon this outstanding achievement and
to wish for Post No. 95 many years of en,1ovment
in the new home.
With this issue the Gazette Times enters upon a
new year of its existence the 64th anniversary
of !" f-unBing. It is the second birthday since
kas.iii. erased and we haven't accomplished
some cf the things we had hoped for. But the
t-A:'.t cf youth is not entirely dead in us and we
h pc ,c : -...! e some kind of a showing ere anoth
er year rolls around. Equipment and building
materials still are run easy to obtain but we re
ever hopeful that there will be a loosening up
in the months to come.
About the only notable thing transpiring with
the newspaper since the last birthday wtl the
switch from the tabloid to the eight-column size.
The change was made for practical purposes and
it must be admitted that there are times when
the staff would feel a little bit better if the
pages were smaller. But in all the change is
looked upon as an improvement and that is the
goal of any worthwhile business to grow bigger
