Planning Committee Worked
One thing was prominently evident at the plan
ning conlercnee Friday and that was that the
committees put in some real work in preparing
their reports. II was no light matter to gather to
gether the numerous sections of the reports and
mould them into comprehensive documents couch
ed in plain language (or all the people to under
stand. Before proceeding farther with this com
ment it seems timely to offer a word of congrat
ulation to each and every member of the several
committees for the earnest endeavor manifested
in attempting to look ahead for the next ten
years and plan our way of life accordingly.
Another thing that appealed to the casual lis
tener was the practical tenor of the reports. A
bit of idealism crept in here and there but withal
the suggestions remained within the practical
From this distance it is not possible to visual
ize or to say what the results of the planning
conference will accomplish, but certain it is that
more will come from having the plans and trying
to carry them out than would come from just
drifting along. Figures were submitted to show
that in the ten-year perior since the first plan
ning conference many improvements were effect
ed in the rural areas, such as the installation of
lighting and water systems, bath and toilet facil
itise and other modernization usually associated
with urban life. In view of the coming rural elec
tric service it is easier to visualize a more com
plete standardization of rural homes' during the
next ten-year period.
Attendance at the conference bore substantial
evidence of the interest our people have in the de
velopment of the county and all existing agencies
should be welded into or.e active group for the
purpose of carrying out. as far as possible, the
program outlined in the reports of the several
Sentiment Lacking fcr UHS
This column is not disposed to take sides one
way or the other relative to the formation of a
union high school district comprising the lone,
Lexington and Heppner districts. As pointed out
by Lester Wilcox of the state department of edu-
cation, there are decided advantages and there
are decided disadvantages and before any move
is made towards organization every phase should
be carefully gone over.
From sentiment expressed at the farm bureau
meeting in lone Monday evening, it is doubtful
if enough interest could be stirred up at this time
to get the movement started, but the idea has
been advanced and school-minded folk will be
doing some thinking about it.
The situation as it exists at present is not sat
isfactory. The Heppner school is crowded and it
may be necessary to construct a grade school
building to care for the first four grades at least
This would permit using more of the central
building for high school expansion but this would
still not provide the type of high school plant
advocates of the union high school have in mind.
It would be more a matter of providing for more
students without permitting for expansion of fac
ilities desired. It may turn out that Heppner, or
rather District No. 1, will have to go outside of
the city limits of Heppner to secure ground suit
able for the kind of high school desired and in
that event it would seem logical to choose a site
below town and make the facilities available to
Lexington if District No. 12 has not made other
arrangements in the meantime.
While we are looking over school problems it
might not be a bad idea to give the county unit
plan some thought. Two eastern Oregon counties
are operating under the unit system, Crook and
Klamath, and Sherman county is preparing to
vote on it at the coming primary election.
There is usually one reason why a man buys,
but with a woman it might be one of eight (so
they say): (1) because her husband says she
can't have it; (2) it will make her look thin; (3)
it comes from Paris; (4) her neighbors can't af
ford it; (5) nobody has one; (6) everybody has
one; (7) it's different; (8) "because."
