OhEGOn HISTORICAL SOCIETY G PUBLIC AUDITORIUM PORTLAND. ORE. hi! 1CT"P1PM AZE -EL Heppner, Oregon, Thursday, May 15, 1947 Volume 6-t, Number 8 ER pi? Crop Prospect At Present Only Fair, Reports Indicate Lack of Rain Hits Light Soil Areas, Cutting Average Considerable concern is felt regarding the 1947 grain crop and unless showers of rain are forthcoming in the immediate future this gear's production will be light. Reports to this effect are coming in daily and it is asserted that some fields in the lighter soil districts will not be cut. A brief inspection trip thru the Lexington and lone bells Wednesday was made by Murl Cummins of the federal crop insurance and County Agent Nelson Anderson. They found some poor prospects, some fair ly good and some that seemed to have withstood the moisture shortage. More favorable reports come from the south half of the coun ty, although grain growers would appreciate some rain right away. Leonard Carlson's weather re cord for April shows nine show ers for the month In the Goose berry area. Precipitation for the month was 1.29 inches, three points better than April 19-16. However, in May 19-16 the area enjoyed a precipitation of 2.26 inches, whereas this year there has been little moisture during May. Figures for Heppner had not been tabulated for 1947 but in April 1916 only .70 of an inch fell here while in May the fall was 2.35 Inches. Rain will have to start falling in earnest if May 1947 is to be reeorced us a favorable month to the wheat crop. Oldest Chevrolet Truck May Bring Owner New Machine If you are operating a Chev rolet truck of ancient vintage, look up the serial number and report it to Charles Hodge at the Hodge Chevrolet company in Heppner. For all you know you may have a new truck com ing to you. Back of this statement is an effort of the Chevrolet Motor division to locate the oldest Chevrolet truck still in active service in the United States. Ac cording to Hodge, the owner of the oldest truck will be pre sented with a brand new advance-design truck and may choose any standard model in the current line of Chevrolet commercial cars and trucks. Trucks entered in the search must be driven to a Chevrolet dealership, where official entry blanks, are available. The search ends June 15, 1947, and the winner will be notified on or before June 20, 1947. "We have a large number of old Chevrolet trucks still in ev-cry-day service in the Heppner area," Hodge said, "and the winning vehicle may be on a farm or engaged in some other hauling work right in our own community." The winning truck must car ry 1947 license plates. The old est Chevrolet truck will be de termined by the earliest serial numbers. In cases where the serial number is lost or illeg ible, the number may be deter mined by an original bill of sale or other legal documents showing the original serial num ber. Entries must be filed with a Chevrolet dealer by midnight, June 15, it is emphasized. Only vehicles manufactured as trucks by Chevrolet are eligible, and the search is open to all truck owners with the exception of employees of the Chevrolet Mo tor division, dealers in cars and trucks and their employees.

If there were no demand for a hos pital, if road machinery could be purchased at pre-war prices, if the road crew did not have to have more wages to meet the high cost of living, in fact, if postwar expenses were no great er than prewar expenses, the court could find the answer without appealing to the tax payers for assistance. The court and budget com mittee were able to reduce some minor items in formulating the expense account for the ensuing year but the small savings will have little effect on the budget as a whole. Too many new items have been added and the six per cent limitation has been far exceeded, the judge pointed out.

The Merrills for and Mrs. Blaine E. Isom. merly resided in Heppner, Referring to the budget, Judge Johnson called attention to the hospital item. The fund set up for the hospital is S180.000. Of this amount, $102,000 is now in the hands of the county treasur er, leaving $78,000 to raise. The road budget calls for $95, 000, all of which will not be raised under the special levy. The county spent $75,000 on roads and equipment during the current fiscal year, most of which was accumulated in the sinking fund during the war years. Additional salaries for elect ed officials and raises granted clerk hire, road crews and other county employees have added several thousand dollars. The court set up a fund of $1,000 to be used in organizing the coun ty school system under House Bill 80 and on top of these it ems printing and advertising costs have advanced. "Tell me one single thing that doesn't cost more," the judge concluded.

As us ual, the opposing team got the jump in the early part of the game and then Heppner began to wake up and play ball. Witnesses at the game from Heppner feel that an unfair de cision by the umpire put a dam per on Heppner's ardor early in the game and by the time the team recovered from that set back Wasco was well out ahead. Broadfoot pitched a good game for Heppner and had good support throughout after one bad inning in which Wasco scored seven runs.
