And the Rains Came!
Tin-re has boon general rejoicing throughout
the wheat bolt and grazing soot ions this wook
over the generous rainfall. Faces that had
grown agonizingly long h.ive settled into their
natural stale once more as a feeling of optirhism
pervades rural and urban districts alike.
As far as grain crops go there will bo im
provement in yield. Wheat that had been esti
mated very low is now given a chance to yield
from two to five bushels per acre more, and in
some instances more than that. Gain in weight
will aid those whose crops are more mature.
Spring wheat will be materially aided as it
is not as far along as the fall sown varieties.
At this stage of the game it is difficult to fore
see what the ultimate average will be but ex
perienced grain raisers, men of long residence
here, are convinced that the figure will be well
above that given by the metropolitan press in
recent weeks.
Should Be Warning
The fire which destroyed one-half of a block
of buildings in Elgin last Thursday evening
should be a warning to other towns to look into
the matter of building safety. Particularly is
this true in relation to lodge buildings. The nar
row escape of thirty members of the Elgin Ma-
sonic lodge is something not to be passed over
lightly as "just one of those things."
It has boon mentioned in these columns be
fore that fires frequently break out around
stairways, shutting off outlets to lodge hails and
similar buildings. This fact causes us to inquire
just what would a group of people do if fire
broke out in one of our local lodge halls? Some
would be able to get out, but would all be as
fortunate as the Elgin Masons? We think not.
If fire escapes have not been ordered for these
buildings, something should be done about it
during the summer months.
Housing Shortage Still Acute
There may have been some improvement in
the housing situation in Heppner in recent
months but it is not apparent to the casual ob
server. Inquiries for houses and apartments are
still far greater than the supply and new peo
ple find it next to impossible to find a place to
live. How long this condition will prevail can
not be foreseen but it's quite certain that between
fifty and one hundred new housing units could
be used.
Housing is so tight here at present that it is
understood the local dentist will have to move
elsewhere unless resilience for himself and fam
ily is obtained real soon. This is a deplorable
situation and something should be done about
it. The town needs a dentist, the dentist needs a
house the has a wife and five children). Who
will come to the rescue and keep him from mov
ing away?
