The big highway program as
made by an interim committee
was passed mostly because it had
already received the support of
the majority of the people. There
will be another cent on gas and
a doubled license fee. Weakness
is the big truck bill which should
charge more for use of the high

of dividing highway funds be

County salaries were all raised
and most state salaries. State em
ployees were given another
boost. There was protest but in

even though their self appointed
spoksemen did complain some

plain anvway. Those on the pen
sion list will get $50 per month
and also medical care on the
basis of need as interpreted by
the federal government. Those
who have property or who are
improperly on the rolls will have
smaller chance of drawing mon
ey which will improve the posi
tion of those actually needy.
Following the regular business
meeting a short program was
presented at which time two
readings. "The Interrupted Pray
er," by Foley and "Our Lawless
Language," were given by Mrs.
J. Palmer Sorlien and two solos,
"Far Away Places" and "fialway
Bay" were sung by Faye Munk
ers accompanied by Mrs. R. D. Al

entertainment were Mesdames
Mabel Chaffee, Gladys Jones and
Alena Anderson. Refreshments
were served by Mesdames Mary
McMurtry, Christine Burkenbine,
Frudy Casebeer and Faye Mun-kers.
The marriage of Mrs. Adell
Vague and Roy Burkenbine, both
of Heppner, was an event of Sat
urday afternoon, with Justice of
the Peace J. O Hager pcforming
the ceremony. The couple was at
tended by Mr. and Mrs. Ernest
Moline. For the wedding, the
bride wore an afternoon dress of
blue crepe with gray accessories
and a corsage of stephanotis.
Mrs. Moline wore a navy blue en
semble with a corsage of white
blossoms. Mr. and Mrs. Burken
bine expect to make their home
in Heppner where he is employed
in the Elhkorn restaurant.

How We Licked
The Parking Problem
For a while it looked like we'd
have to put up parking meters.
Folks working in town including
some of the store owners were
taking up all of the space alung
Farmers coming in to shop never
found a place to park, and some
times had to lug stuff a half mile
or so. Some started to do their buy
ing in other towns. Finally, store
owners and farmers had a get
together with the result that the
empty field near the depot was
fixed up for all-day parkers.
Now farmers get their shopping
done comfortably, and the mer
chants have a better plnce to park
than they had before. Just took a
little friendly co-operation to make
From where I sit, most differ
ences can be ironed out by just
talking things over maybe with a
cup of coffee or glass of beer and
seeing the other person's side of it.

try just that?
