Pied Piper Of Oak
Ridge Title Given
Alden Blankenship
From Holland's, the Magazine
of the South, we learn that a
former Heppner man is referred
to as "The Pied Piper of Oak
Ridge." That man is Dr. Alden
H. Blankenship, former superin
tendent of the Heppner schools,
teacher at Columbia University,
New York, and since 1913 found
er and builder of the Oak Ridge,
Tenn. .school system, agreed un
animously by more than 7,000
authorities oh education as an
outstanding illustration of what
the schools of tomorrow should
It is recalled by the writer that
when Dr. Blankenship went to
Oak Ridge h werote. this news
paper directing that his address
be changed to that point, he
said something about having a
job but no housing or equip
ment with which to work. From
Holland's we glean an insight
to his problem in the following
A story whose opening chap
ter began on a sweltering July
morning in 1913 when Dr. Blan
kenship, freshly arrived in Oak
Ridge from his teaching duties
at Columbia University, faced
Town Manager Captain Samuel
A. Baxter and said, with a puz
zled frown, "I've come to Oak
Ridge to be Suierintendent of
Schools. Where are the schools?"
"There aren't any," said Cap
tain Baxter briefly. "That's your
job. To build, equip, and staff
"For how many children?" Dr.
Blankenship asked.
"Families are pouring into
Oak Ridge in droves. We expect
a landslide of 6,000 by the end
of this year. Furthermore," said
Captain Baxter tersely, "You've
got to do the job in three months
time because we've promised
them that schools will open on
October 1st."
It was a staggering assign
ment, but thirty-four-year-old
Blankenship rolled up his sleev-
ps and set to work to build the !
school system which today has !
a staff of 350 teachers and 13
schools to take care of its pre
sent 8.000 children.
And so, Gaylen Goodrich, wri
ting of our former fellow towns
man, aptly dubs him "The Pied
PiHT of Oak Ridge."
A Little Bit Late
But We're Finally
In On Flying Discs
Heppner is a little bit late but
this is to serve notice that we're
finally in on the flying disc ex
citement if there is excitement
over the mysterious little sau
cers, plates, or what have you.
Willie McCaleb, of sound mind
and body and strictly sober
deposes and swears that at noon
on Wednesday, Aug. 27, as he
was meandering towards home
from his place of business, the
post office in Heppner, a glint
caught his eye and he looked
skyward to behold a tiny disc
sailing through the air at a rate
he could not estimate. When
first seen the object was travel
ing eastward and suddenly veer
ed to the south. Ho believes this
would remove the disc from the
category of windblown, or car
ried, object and place it in a
class of remote controlled or
otherwise generated object.
McCaleb's seriousness also re
moves any notion one may have
about sun spots, faulty vision,
flying seeds and a few other
things mentioned in recent
months in connection with the
mysterious flying missiles.
