Heppner Battles Pendleton
In Tapping Interior Trade
From the "Daily" Heppner Ga-J
tette of June 6, 1891, we learn
some of the road problems con-1
fronting Grant county, and the
part played by Heppner and(
Pendleton in providinp. tianspor-i
tatlon outlets for that "inland j
republic." An unsigned corres-
pondence to the Gazette, dated:
Long Creek, June 6, has the lot
lowing to say:
The Pendleton and Long Creek
completed. The force of work
wagon road is being rapidly
men has reached the summit of
the North Fork mountain and is
proceeding down on Camas
creek. The fund appropriated
lor this purpose by the Pendle
ton merchants will be sufficient
to complete the thoroughfare to
the Middle Fork of the John Day.
From that point, with the ex
ception of only a short distance,
is a good road to Long Creek.
This exception is confined whol
ly to Flower's gulch, leading
from the Middle Fork, which is
a rough and rocky trail, and will
require the expenditure of some
little money to make it passable
at all seasons of the year. Pen
dleton, however, expects Long
Creek to raise the necessary bo
nus to warrant its completion.
but the pressure of hard times
makes this enterprise an up-hill
Heppner has appropriated
money and constructed thorough
fares through the heart of Grant
county, and if Pendelton expects
to attract a reasonable portion
of our trade she must do the
same. This is an enterprise of
purely business nature. Grant
county wants available roads ra
diating in every direction, but
under the present circumstances,
she expects the benefited points
to raise the necessary funds.
Thus, it Is plainly seen, that if
Pendleton expects a paying por
tion of the Grant county trade,
she must not stop her construc
tion work at the county line, but
when she has tapped the heart
of our country, she will then
stand on an equal footing with
The Sumpter Valley Railroad
company, who are at present
constructing a branch line from
Baker City, are talking strongly
of extending a telegraph line to
Prairie City, John Day and other
towns of the county in order to
give Grant county merchants
and stockmen direct communi
cation with the main line. This
will add another jewel to the
crown of Grant county. The per
fection of any enterprise that
will enhance the value of our in
land republic and assist in the
development of the stock and

New Meeting Dates

100 farm fires take the lives of
10 farmers ... that one farm fire
in 10 results in death?
Did you know that the total
loss this year will be about equal
to the value of every productive
acre and every farm building in
the state of Washington?
Did you know the farm fire
loss this vear would build 50,
000 $2,000".00 barns?
Did you know that forest fires
this year will burn over an area
as large as the state of New
York, destroying enough timber
to build 200,000 five-room hous
es? Did you know that the total
estimated loss threatens to ex
ceed $700 million, enough to
give every man, worfian and
child In the U. S. $5.00?
Did you know you can prevent
90 per cent of all these fires by
living sensibly... and being for
ever on the alert?
These are facts reported by the
National Fire Prevention Asso

October 5-11, proclaimed by Pres

circular recently issued by the

normal carryover on next June
The high prices now being
paid . for wheat, the circular
states, reflects the abnormally
high foreign and domestic de
mand for the crop, government
buying for export, and high pri
ces for corn and other grains.
These prices are substantially
above the price support level at
90 per cent of parity.
The wheat acreage in the Pa
cific Northwest for the past year
was 17 per cent larger than the
1935-39 average and 36 per cent
larger than the 1940-44 average.
The government is asking that
farmers plant heavily to wheat
again. Price support at not less
than 90 per cent of parity is to
continue through 1948.
The vaccine which the USDA
developed as a preventive of bo
vine brucellosis, or Bang's dis
ease, is a preventive but not a
cure. Dr. C. K. Mingle, a veter
inarian and research scientist of
the department's bureau of ani
mal industry, emphasized this
point at a meeting of the U. S.
Livestock Sanitary association
in Chicago a while back.
Dr. Mingle said that the ef
fectiveness of the vaccine in
building up resistance to the
disease in healthy animals has
led some persons to try it as a
remedy for cattle already Infest
ed. Reports of these instances
caused Dr. Mingle and his as
sociates at Beltsville, Maryland,
to run tests with a group of hei
fers in a herd near the station.
They found that giving the vac
cine to an animal that already
is infected with Bang's disease
has no appreciable effect on the
normal course of the disease.
Vaccination is not a cure for an
animaNthat already has Brucellosis.
