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
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
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
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.

Mounting Costs Make More
Funds Necessary County
Is To Meet Its Obligations
If there were any possible way
to meet advancing costs of ev
erything entering into operation
of the county government on
persent levies, the court would
most certainly do it, Judge Bert
Johnson said Wednesday. 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

ing more recently occupied by

has been utilized in setting up
the cafe and bar. Stainless steel

pride is the mechanical dish

The new cafe is a bower of
flowers, gifts of friends who
welcomed the O'Donnell's re

Lindsay Reports
Proof that well bred farm
nimals pay good returns is
found in a report from Frank
Lindsay of Morgan on results
htained from shearing his
mall flock of Rambouillet

lelivered to tl Morrow Coun
ty Grain Growers warehouse in
Heppner, 27 fleeces of wool that

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
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.

In Sunday's Game
Early nnings Put
Locals Behind 8
Ball, Fans Report
Heppner's prospecst of even
ending the season in the first
column were further dimmed
Sunday when Wasco took the
long end of a 12-8 score. 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. Wasco had
a new man in the pitcher's box
which strengthened that team's
work materially.
There will be no more games
on the local field until June 22.

ment, the meat case, was re
ceived and put in place last
week and has been cooled and
made ready to receive meat for
the opening day.
Mr. Schwarz and his helpers
have been too busy to plan a
formal opening and with every
thing in place will open up for
business Saturday as if it were
just another day.
The new store is located at
the corner of Court and May
streets, across Court from the
county courthouse and just east
of the May street bridge. It is
built on modern market lines
and makes an attractive corner.
It has a frontage of 60 feet and
a depth of 40 feet. The sales
room has a floor space approx
imately 30 x 60 feet.
A butcher and meat cutter for
many years. Schwarz has incor
porated many ideas about the
proper handling of food pro
ducts into the arrangement of
the market and grocery. His
meat storage room is designed
to handle carcasses and heavy
sections of beeves at a minimum
of lifting. An overhead track
runs from one end of the room
to the other and on out to the
loading platform at the rear of
the building, making it possi
bfe to fasien a caro3ss on to a
hook connected with the track
pulley and move it to the end
of the track with very little ef
fort. Lockers for butter, milk, soft
drinks ant! other items are lo
cated at a convenient spot. The
meat counter sits in the west
end of the room with but a step
or so from it into the storage
The grocery department is
laid out on approved help-your-self
lines, vi;'u all articles plain
ly marked and easy to reach.
