PP&L To Spend
Additional $60,000
On Local Service
Extra Power Will
Be Brought Over
CB Line to Jordan
A $00,000 project included in
Pacific Power & Light company's
record-breaking construction bud
get for 1918 assures Heppner a
second source of power supply, J.
It. Huffman, local manager, re
vealed today.
The project calls for construc
tion at Jordan Siding, near lone,
of a 66,000-volt substation. It will
receive power from a transmis
sion line built by the Columbia
Basin REA from the Pacific com
pany's substation at Hermlston,
and will deliver it to the com
pany transmission line which
serves the Heppner area.
Huffman pointed out that the
project is the result of a three
way agreement worked out by
the Pacific company, the REA and
the Bonnevile administration for
the benefit of the area.
Under the agreement, the com
pany will "wheel" Bonneville
power over its own lines to its
recently completed Hermlston
substation. At a terminal there
it will turn the power over to
the REA.
The power then wil be hauled
by the REA over the 66,00-volt
line it is to build this summer
from Hermlston to serve its cus
tomers in this area. The company
also will make use of the new
line to carry power to Jordan
Siding to reinforce the local sup
ply, which at present comes en
tirely fiom other company lines
and plants in the west.
Although the Jordan Siding suh
itself is to be finished this year,
the large transformer and othre
heavy equipment are scheduled
for delivery by the manufacturer
early in 1919. When it Is in oper
ation, the new substation will
give Heppner the advantages of
power supply from two directions,
Huffman pointed out. And in ad
dition to extra capacity, It also
will provide an emergency source
of supply.
The local manager pointed out
that the new project is the final
step In Pacific's program for ex
panding and strengthening the
local power system to provide for
present needs and allow capacity
for future growth.
Kirst step in the program was
the construction of a 22,000-volt
transmission line from lone, re
placing the 11,000-volt line which
formerly supplied the city. This
was followed by the new Hepp
ner substation to handle and dis
tribute the city's power supply.
The new city sub, placed In op
eration last December, has 50 per
cent more capacity than the for
mer installatoin, and features
equipment providing closer volt
age control. The two projects re
quired an added investment of
$125,000 by Pacific in facilities
for serving this area, Huffman
The company's record budget
for system-wide const ruction dur
ing the year Is $6,606,330. This is
nearly a third of a million dollars
more than the company spent
last year, the previous high in
construction for the company's
38-year history.
School Band Gives
Good Performance
At First Concert
There may have been some
skeptics in the audience prior to
the opening of the program, but
all skepticism was removed after
the Heppner school band launch
ed Into the first number of the
annual concert given at the
school gymnasium-auditorium on
Wednesday evening. Under the
rhythmical baton of Director Bil
ly Codicil, the young people
demonstrated a musical know
ledge and skill found only in or
ganizations of older and more ex
perienced musicians.
When It Is considered that the
band was reorganized only two
years ago, with only a few older
students to form the nucleus, it
can be said without qualification
that Mr. Cochell has brought his
young musicians a long way in
the musical world. It is no small
chore to tutor a group of begin
ners in the fundamentals and
bring them along as players at
the same time, yet that is what
the director has done. The result,
as demonstrated last night, Is
most pleasing to school patrons
and lovers of music, and must
ho. a source of Justifiable pride
to the director.
The entire 17 numbers, includ
ing an oboe solo by Marlon
Green, the trumpet trio Karl Ga
bier, Don Rlpee and Jim Orwick,
Incidental solos by Karl Gabler
and sousaphone solo by Keith
Connor, showed careful prepara
Hon throughout.
That the band members them
selves are appreciative of the
work done by Mr. Cochell, they
presented him with an appropri
ate gift. Jean Hanna, the band'
Subscribers Urged
To Send In Checks
The campaign for additional
funds for the hospital has been
doing quite satisfactorily, accord
ing to Frank Turner, chairman,
but if the work is to be closed
ui wuhin a reasonable tune there
will have to be a speeding up
in the turning in of funds, he de
clares. It is suggested that those
who wish to contribute not wait
for solicitors to call, but send in
their checks to the chairman at
the earliest possible date.
Chairman Turner says the so
liciting is about over, that most
of the county has been covered.
However, numerous prospective
contributors have not been con
tacted and rather than have the
solicitors go back over the same
ground, these people are urged
to mail In their checks.
It is hoped there will be a gen
eral response that the govern
ment requirements may be met
and work started on the building
as early as possible.
Trout Delivered
Here This Week
A truck from the hatchery at
Maupin has made two trips to
the county this week bringing
altogether 4200 legal size trout
for distribution in local streams.
The local sportsmen's associa
tion is working to get at least
one more truckload, making
more than 6,000 lures for anglers,
according to Joe Aiken, president
of the association.
EVENTUALLY There Is an old saying that
once you live in Morrow county,
no matter where you may go you
will always come back. It has
happened to a lot of us aiiu
come the Roy Lieuallens who
have returned to lone and again
taken over the Victory cafe of
which they made such a success
during the three war years
ran it. This Is not the first time
they have returned to the county
but they say now that after trav
eling up and down the coast and
over wide areas of the in
thev are convinced they will find
no nlare thev like better. So why
not settle down? I
Since re-acquiring the Victor-J
the Lieuallens have been renov-;
ating and rearranging so inc
can greet more of their old
friends. They started serving
meals last week and were grat
ified with the welcome they re
ceived from their former custom
ers. The only drawback was that
Roy was suffering from a severe
hoarseness and could hardly
speak, let alone talk but he hopes
to be in condition from here on

Republicans Lead
In Registration In
County Nearly 2-1
New registrations and switch
ing of party preference have
boosted the republican majority
to almost 2 to 1 in the county,
figures released from the county
clerk's office reveal. The G.O.P.
registration up to Saturday, Mar.
27, 1271. Democratic vbters up to
that time were 642, and there
were 49 catalogued as miscellan
eous, making a total of 1972.
Most noticeable switch in par
ty alignment is in Boardman pre
cinct, where the democrats have
held a majority for many years.
As late as the special election in
1947 the party count was 109
democrat and 91 republican. The
count now stands: Republicans
178, democrats 82.
The fact that Boardman has a
candidate for the republican
nomination for county commis
sioner has without doubt inspired
this change, although it is not
known how many of the new reg
istrants were republicans. The
decided republican majority, if
voting solid, could easily decide
the fate of most of the candidates
for county offices.
While there is no noisy cam
paign underway, candidates are
browsing around and buttonhol
ing voters and this vote-getting
will increase as the campaign
wears along. No candidate seems
to have an imposing lead and it
is a matter of waiting until the
votes are counted before announ
cing the winners.
A situation has arisen in the
22nd representative district which
may cost Morrow county its rep
resentative unless the voters ral
ly to the supoprt of Rep. Henry
Peterson. Sherman county has
two candidates for representative,
both of whom are out to win the
nomination. Unless Morrow coun
ty rolls up a big majority for
Peterson his chances for election
may be none too bright. Since
this county has no chance at the
senatorial post, It is felt by many
that the representation In the
house should be retained.

Answers Summons
Of Death Friday
Was Resident Of
County For More
Than Sixty Years
Services were held at 2 o'clock
p.m. from the Methodist church
for William T. Campbell, whose
death occurred March 26 at the
family residence in Heppner.
Rev. J. Palmer Sorlien officiated
and music was provided by Mrs.
Charles Ruggles and Mrs. Lucy
Rodgers who sang "The Old Rug
ged Cross" and "Lead Kindly
Light," accompanied by Mrs. J.
R. Huffman. Mrs. Ruggles played
the prelude and postlude.
Interment was made in the I
O. O. F. cemetery at Lexington.
Mr. Campbell had been a resi
dent of Morrow county for more
than 61 years. With his bride of
a little more than a year, he
came from Walla Walla in the
fall of 1887 and settled on a
homestead on Social Ridge. He
added to his holdings until he
had acquired a farm of 800 acres
which he operated until 1917
when he turned the management
over to his son Roy and he and
Mrs. Campbell retired to the
home in Heppner where he spent
the remainder of his life.
Accustomed as he was to do
ing a full day's work on the farm,
Judge Campbell could not sit idle
when he moved to town, but kept
busy working about the yard and
in raising a bountiful garden un
til advancing years made further
work impossible. He gained a
large measure of satisfaction at
being able to supply local mar
kets with vegetables from his
garden, vegetables that outrival-
led similar products shipped here
from outside points.
The title of "judge" was ac
quired from two periods of ser
vice as county judge. He gave
several years to public service in
the county, first as commissioner
for two terms and then as judge

Snow In Mountains
There is more snow in the
mountains now than there was
in January, according to a report
from the Heppnr forest ranger's
office. To tell the truth, the depth
as of Easter Sunday was almost
twice that of two months ago,
with the possibility that more of
i he beautiful fell in the moun
tains Monday when a heavy rain
drenched Heppner and vicinity.
Glen Parsons, ranger and Joe
Gjertson, assistant ranger, made
a trip into the high mountains
Sunday to ascertain what me
depth is and found that on north
Jones prairie the ground has a
coating of 49.8 inches. Average
depth over the snow course of
that area is 43.9 inches, with a
water content of 12.5 inches and
a density of 29 per cent.
Streams fed by the snow fields
south of Heppner have carried a
fairly heavy run off throughout
the winter and early spring
months and in January It was
feared that irrigation might be
handicapped this year. That wor-1
ry seems to have been removed
since most of the winter weather
has prevailed since the first of
the year.
Dr. J. D. Palmer has been on
the sick list several days, neces
sitating the closing of his dental
office temporarily. He expects to

The ceiling of the church was

Favors at O. E. A.
Banquet To Typify
Eastern Oregon
When educators of the state
gather around the festive board
at their annual banquet in Port
land this week end. the favors
which are an important part of
such events will be typical of the
resources of eastern Oregon.
The reason for this is that Mrs.
Adrian Bechdolt, Heppner grade
teacher, is providing the favors
and she has chosen to give the
region east of the Cascades a bit
of advertising.
Miniature cows, sheep, coping
saws and small sheafs of wheat
will grace the table beside the
plate of each diner, mementos
they may take home with them
to remind them of the unlimited
