Heppner Bids You Welcome
By the lime this issue of the Gazelle Times has
reached many of its readers the annual fair and
rodeo will be In progress. Perhaps many of you
will tie at the fair w hen the mail man drops our
little weekly message in your mailbox and will
not peruse Its columns until a later date. Be that
as it may, we w ant to speak in behalf of Heppner
its business houses, civic and fraternal groups,
and the city government from the mayor down
and tell you that you are welcome and to wish
for you a happy holiday.
Let us all have fun, but keep that fun within
the bounds of reason. It will be better for all of
us if moderation prevails.
Those in charge of the fair are sure that you
will find many things to interest you, even sur
prise you. There will be plenty of excitement and
thrills on the rodeo field each afternoon, and for
those who like to trip the light fantastic there
will be ample opportunity for enjoyment for the
three nights of the fair and rodeo.
So, Heppner bids you welcome to the 194S Mor
row County Fair and Rodeo and hopes you will
like the show and our little city well enough to
return again and again.
In view of what happened in Dixieland it
looks like Henry made a mistake by not bury ing
all the little chickens, too.
A Plea to Oregon Hunters
With the hunting season drawing near in Ore
gon, the appeal made for greater safety in the
woods is again timely and it is w ith pleasure we
devote the larger part of the editorial column to
the contribution of Mr. C. A. Lockwood, Oregon
state game supervisor, who treats the subject
in an able manner. His editorial follows:
Already the first report of a hunting fatality
has come in from our neighboring state, Cali
fornia. The unfortunate hunter, who was a vet
eran twice wounded in the Pacific, was killed by
a hunter who stated that he had mistaken him
for a deer. Reports such els this one from Cal
ifornia have become far too numerous in recent
years here in Oregon.
In Oregon during the 1946 hunting season there
were 13 hunting accidents, five of them being
fatal. Last year during the regular hunting sea
son we had 22 hunting accidents, seven of which
resulted in fatalities. Looking over this list, it is
impossible to find one that could not have been
prevented if the simple rules of caution and care
had been followed The list gives causes such as
the following: aecdental discharge of gun, gun j
discharged while victim crossed a fence, mistaken
for deer, mistaken for bear, discharge of gun
while victim was removing it from car, gun dis
charged after dropping.
As we go into the hunting season for 194S, we
know that there will be more hunters taking the
field than ever before in the state of Oregon.
Extra caution will be imperative. The rules are
simple and easy to follow: look before you shoot;
make certain of your target; always make certain
someone might be in your line of fire; don't carry
a loaded gun in your car; never point the muzzle
of your gun at anyone. Above all remember that
a loaded gun is dangerous, handle it with care.
If we all take just a few seconds to make sure,
if we all are just a bit more careful when we
climb through a fence, we can prevent this use
less loss of life.
It is my sincere hope that every hunter will fol
low the ten commandments of safety.
Treat every gun with the respect due a loaded
gun. This is the cardinal rule of gun safety.
Carry only empty guns, taken down or with the
action open, into your automobiles, camp, and
Always be sure that the barrel and action are
clear of obstructions.
Always carry your gun so that you can control
the directon of the muzzle even if you stumble.
Be sure of your target before you pull the trig
ger. Never point a gun at anything you do not want
Never leave your gun unattended unless you
unload it first.
Never climb a tree or a fence with a loaded gun.
Never shoot at a flat, hard surface or the
surface of water
Do not mix gunpowder and alcohol.
Let's make the 1948 hunting season a safe
WOULD HEX PROGRESSIVES
The names of nominees on the
state progressive party ticket
will not appear on the general
election ballot, November 2, if a
suit filed this week in a Marion
county court is successful. The
suit was filed in an ettort to re
strain Secretary of Setate Earl T.
Newbry and Harlan Judd, county
clerk of Marion county, from rec
ognizing the progressives and
was filed by a democratic candi
date of Multnomah county who
alleges that the officers of the
progressive party convention
were democrats and republicans
and not members of the progres
State officers are of the opin
ion that the suit was iuea too
late to be effective except to
get free publicity for the backers
of the suit.

proclamation Friday ordering
registration for selective service
between August 30 and Septem
ber 17. The registration dates are
the same as those already an
nounced by the selective service
headquarters. The governor also
called upon employees to cooper
ate with the draft officials. .
As selective service orders now
stand young men who marry and
time before they register for the
draft will be deferred from ser
vice. There is no assurance that
the present order will not be
changed, to place in class 3-A
(deferred) "a registrant who has
