county hospital fund uas S.W w
amount estimati-d u rr.-ct anj cxiij
This is based on ;i:c architect's e-
total cott of constructing ami -"i uippii-.g a f.fieen
bed hospital m cirrei.t ibor and material prices.
To meet this estimated cost, the county court
has .ippiied for federal aid from the l;-ia fund il
lotted to the state of Oregon, the local hospital
projeei having, an A-l priority. With actual funds
on hand from the levy, phis an estimated
SHOO due on the levy and SSOO invested in real
estate, the court has available S107.-iaS.T3 for
building puiposes. With the federal government
t'iving one dmiar for each two dollars put up
by the county the sun; is raised to S159.39-'about
the cost of erecting the building but leaving
nothing for equipment.
To make it clear relative to raising enough
money to build and equip the hospital: Ti-.e gov
ernment requires that the plant must be built
and equipped, with the assurance that the hospit
al will be operated at least the first two years
following completion, before funds can be grant
ed. To meet the requirement for the c.-.-ry.'.-v cos;
the court felt obliged to include $20,000 to be rais
ed by popular subscription. This was based on
prevoius expressions by individuals and organiza
tions that they would like the privilege of con
tributing directiy to the furui.-kii-g of rooms or
the installation of equipment. It must be remem
bered that the federal assistance will be forth
coming on the additional $20,000 just as it is on
the fund raised by taxation, so that when the
$20,000 "is pledged and paid in the total will be
530,000 as applied to the building fund. Individu
als and groups wishing to specify what their
contributions are to be used for will have that
privilege, but their subscriptions will have to be
placed in the hospital fund in order to obtain
the additional one dollar for each two dollars
It should not be a difficult matter to raise the
additional S20.000, especially for a project as im
portant as-the hospital. The citizens of Heppner.
business concerns in particular, should be far
seeing enough to pledge liberally to this cause.
Public spirited citizens in other parts of the county
have already made their pledges. It should not
take more than a few days to clean this little
drive up and thus assure an early stall on actual
"instruction nf 'he ho.sDitai. Let us not delay.
Remove the Handicap!
One can not visit Monument without realizing
that despite improvements in the road situation
in recent years the little community is still more
or less bottled up so far as communication with
outside points is concerned. The people there can
go down the river to the John Day highway on a
new hard surfaced road, or they can go over the
hill via Hamilton to Long Creek on a post road,
which it is expected wil) be hard surfaced within
the next two or three years. That is a good move.
It will make travel out of the district to the county
seat at Canyon City (the road to Kimberley lias
made it easier, it should be said), and will afford
travel to such points as the people may want to
reach via the Three Flags highway.
However, these improvements have not and will
not shorten the mileage to railheads on either
the John Day highway or Highway 393. Heppner
will remain the nearest rail sniping point by a
margin of a few miles over Condon and a good
many miles over Pendleton. That is figuring
the present 24 1 2 miles from Monument to Spray
Junction and the 53 miles; from that point to
Heppner. Take that 24 1 2 miles and turn it more
direct iv towards Heppner, on a route worked out
by the Heppner Lumber company and on which
several miles of grade is being built, and the
distance from Monument to a railhead is reduced
to approximately 50 miles. Construction of that
stretch of road from the mouth of Chapin creek to
Monument will remove the pocket in which the
town now finds itself by placing it on a through
Construction of sawmills in and near Monu
ment will add a heavy volume of freight traffic
which could easily be diverted in this direction
with the building of a highway to connect the '
Heppner-Spray highway. The Heppner Lumber
company is in the process of building a mill at
Monument with an approximate capacity of 40.0.:
feet daily, and with other smaller mills now run
ning and still more to be built there will be a
growth in population and commercial activity
over that way.
Sentiment of the community relative to closer
connection with Heppner was sounded out Mon
day by representatives from the Heppner Cham
ber of Commerce. What was learned was pie using
to the visitors and thoy returned home convinced
that not oniy is closer relationship with that part
of the interior desirable but that it must be made

How to Keep 'Em
Down On the Farm
The other day Pete Swanson's
nephew. Bud, allowed as how he
was fed up with farm and country
life... and was goimr to the city
where there was a lot more oppor
tunity anj excitement.
Some folks might have tried to
stop him. Bat not Tete. He even
advanced Bud carfare for the trip
...figured that when he'd had a
good look around, he'd come back
where he belonged.
And what happened? After seven
days of big-town bustle and excite
ment. Bud was back behind the
wheel of a tractor, with color In his
cheeks again. And he'd traded the
ni;:ht life of the city for a guiet
glass of beer with Dad.
From where I sit, that's how it
goes. Try to prevent some one from
netting what he thinks he wants
anj he'll go on wanting it. But give
him his head, ami he'll settle for
the sensible thing whether it's
country life, or a temperate glass
of beer 1
