At l.a Gr;m:c ).i.t w,vk end, the Oregon News
pa tier ruhlu-heis association found the mat on
the oul.-iile v i t h the word "Welcome" emblaz
oned in hip loiters, figuratively speaking. There
was an atmi'spheie of hospitality about the town
which made the isitors, many of whom were
paying their f:rst iit to that section of Oregon,
feel at home from the time of arrival until tak
ing lo.ie. Not only was this spirit manifest in
La Grande but up the Wallowa branch to Wal
lowa Lake where the publishers and their friends
were privi.igd to drir.k in some of the west's
richest scenic beauty, as well as enjoy an excel
lent luncheon at Wallowa Lake Lodge. Arriving

eastern Oregon. There will be more people har
boring a ecsiie to leant more about the great
region lying east of the Cascades as a result-of
this two-day visit to northeastern Oregon.
While on the subject of the convention, the
writer with due modesty wishes to acknowledge
the distinctive honor conferred upon him at La
Grande, in being able to bring back to Heppner
the highest office at the command of the as
sociation, tl is an honor that has come only
once before to this city, in 1S95, when A. W.
Tatterson, editor of the Heppner Gazette was
made president of the old Oregon Press associa
tion. On the program, Mr. Patterson is listed as
the only living former president of the OPA (not
the late lamented OPA of war memories) and
his residence is given as Washington, D. C.
The convention took special note of the fact
that Amos E. Voorhees is rounding out 50 years
as publisher of the Grants Pass Courier on July
1. His has been a long record of useful service
to his community, his state and to the newspa
per fraternity. A meeting of the association with
out his presence is like apple pie without cheese.
Fortunately, it is seldom that he misses a gath
ering of the publishers, and although he is re- i
linquishing some of the responsibility of man
aging the prosperous Courier to his son, he main
tains an active interest in all that is going on
about the plant. Incidentally, he and Mrs. Voo
rhees accompanied their pilot son. Earl and wife,
from Grants Fass to La Grande and return by
plane, another evidence of keeping abreast with
Yes, We Have No Money
To those of our readers who can hark back to
the era following World War I it will be easy
to recall a popular song of the time. It would
have been easy to give the song a commonplace
title, such as "No, We Have No Bananas," but
that would have lacked sales appeal, and after
all. what do song writers write songs for money
cr the fun of writing?
The situation the Morrow county court finds
itself in today is reminiscent of the "Yes, We
Have No Bananas" days. - True, the court has
funds but not enough to meet the demands
placed upon it for this, that and the other thing.
But more particularly not enough to carry on
the road program, to build as large and adequate
a hospital as is expected, to provide ample funds
for cricket control, or to retain the home dem
onstration agent, to say nothing of lopping off
funds here and there to meet routine expenses.
A new budget has been worked out and it will
cause no small amount of wailing by many who
were not enough concerned to go to the polls
and express their preference one way on the oth
er. It is the belief of this column that the court
is doing its best to meet the demands of the
taxpayers. Doubtless that effort on their part
costs them personal popularity at times, but
each member feels he may sacrifice a little pop
ularity so long as his integrity remains above
Do you remember that fine parade at Lexing
ton last year? It will be repeated with interest
this year. Heppner should be prepared to parti
cipate, for the people of the county and many
neighboring communities will be there. If a
matter of neighborliness does not appeal, at
least we should realize the business angle involved.
