In U. S. Bonds,
Cashing In Less
Announcement was made this
week by E. CS. Sammons, state
advisory chairman of the savings
bonds division of the treasury, of
totals of sales and redemptions
in Oregon for the month of
March and the first quarter of
Sales of E, F and G savings
bonds for last month totalled
S4,20!),4tU for the state at large.
Redemptions and maturities for
March came to a total of $3,923,
944. All sales of these savings
bonds for the first quarter in the
state total $15,034,314 and the
total of redemptions was $12,175.
439. Sales for the first quarter of
1949 were approximately $325,000
less than the first quarter of a
year ago but the total cash-ins
for the same period were about
$2,580,000 less than for the same
three months in 1948.
Mr. Sammons emphasized in
his statement the fact that Ihe
winter of 1948-49 was regarded
as the hardest in our written
history. It Is rather less than
amazing, ho said, that even with
the drain upon our people brot
about by this situation they still
were able to buy almost exactly
us many bonds as they bought a
year ago and at the same time
went Into their reserve bonds
previously bought to an extent
of more than two and one-half
million dollars less than they
were doing In 1948.

combating the blaze.
Fire starting in the fuel bunk

extensive damage. Fire in the
sawdust pile also was a threat,
but this, too, was brought under
A high wind from a westerly

Members of the Heppner cham

fire fighters, both Heppner Fire

as her successor.
Mr. and Mrs. Harley Anderson
returned from Portland Friday
Due to circumstances which
were beyond our control, the ed
itor had to become linotype oper
ator this week and consequently
his nose is pretty well filed down
by close application to the grind
stone. As a result of this close ap
plication, it was not possible to
attend the annual concert by the
Heppner school bands and a write
up worthy of the event is lack
ing. We just want to say that we
have heard many fine compli
ments for Mr Collins and his two
bands and Heppner may look for
ward to more fine concerts in the
future, since a beginners' band
of 60 boys and girls will supply
the talent with which to build the
high school bands of the future.
And what a fine thing it was
that Billy Cochell could be pre
sent and participate by directing
the high shcool band in one
number. They were his boys and
girls last year and were quick to
respond to his direction. The pro
gram was dedicated to Billy and
it was a big night for him.
The same reason that we did
not attend the band concert and
have a report on it goes for Mrs.
Turner's piano class recital. Be
ing of a musical turn of mind we
regret missing any of the local
music functions where the young
people are displaying their tal
ent. While in the mood, it is mete
and proper to compliment Bill
Davis and his Boy Scouts on their
showing at the Scout jamboree
in Pendleton last week-end. From
all accounts, the Heppner troop
just about stole the show. Pretty
good for a bunch of boys that
have only started in Scout work.

To Keep Payments
Up on Insurance
Thousands of Oregon veterans
are risking loss of their G. I. in
surance through tardy payment
of their premiums. Charles M.
Cox, veterans adminstration re
presentative, pointed out today.
A sampling of the nearly 50,
000 active G. I. accounts of Ore
gon ex-servicemen showed that
37 percent more than 18.000
veterans were paying their in
surance during the 'grace period'
the extra 31 -day period allowed
on delinquent accounts before
they are lapsed.
This survey was made by the
VA dstrict office in Seattle,
which handles 170,000 active Na
tional Service Life insurance ac
counts for the Pacific Northwest.
More serious was the finding
that nearly 1200 veterans actual
ly mailed premiums after their
insurance had expired that is.
even after the 31 days' grace.
Nearly 6400 ex-GI's were run
ning the same risk by mailing
their payments in the final two
weeks of the grace period.
Once a policy has lapsed, it is
pointed out. a veteran must ap
ply for reinstatement, make up
back premiums and meet good
Insured veterans can avoid
this risk by paying ahead of the
grace period, or by sending in
two premiums the next time and
paying on a regular basis there
after. NEW VP OF EASTERN
