Heppner Gazette Times, Thursday, May 12, 1949
National White Cane Week has been designated as May 15 to May 21 in
clusive. It has been the practice in the State of Oregon that the Governor
and Mayors of all cities proclaim that this week be recognized as National
White Cane Week.
Following are some of the reasons for calling attention to the white cane:
1 . Because any person carrying a white cane is either blind or seriously
handicapped and many people who recognize this will be inclined to
offer them assistance in crossing streets or giving them information
that will be helpful.
2. The white cane is a signal to drivers of all types of vehicles that the
person carrying it is without vision and the law provides that such per
son has right of way in crossing streets and that drivers will stop their
vehicles and not advance until the visually handicapped person has ar
rived at the point of safety.
3. It is important from a social point of view to call attention to the
problems of the blind and this can most easily be done through some
nationally recognized week.
Now, therefore, as Mayor of the City of Heppner, I hereby proclaim that
the period May 1 5 to May 21 inclusive be recognized as National White
Cane Week and recommend that our citizens observe in every way the rules
and regulations governing motor traffic as pertaining to protection to the
blind or those afflicted with deficient sight and to practice care and consid
eration for them at all times..
Dated this 12th day of May, 1949.
Mayor of the City of Heppner, Oregon

To Aid Loan Fund
I The Lillian Turner loan fund
committee had a meeting one
night last week and made the
final plans for a dance which
will be held May 14 at the gym,
with the Rimrock Serenaders fur
nishing the music and the P-TA
doing its part for the cause with
the serving of the refreshments.
At a recent date it was discov
ered that Mrs. Turner left a bond
for the purpose of creating a stu
dent loan fund for the Lexington
community. It being small the
committee knew that something
would have to be done to add to
it. In order to make a loan fund
such as Mrs. Turner wanted it
was found necessary to form an
alumni association of the Lex
ington students who had the pri
vilege of attending school under
her. The first meeting will be
May 14 at 8 p m. at the school
gym in Lexington with George
Peck as speaker. Present plans
are to make this an annual date
with, the proceeds going into the
loan fund. It is the honest desire
of the association to help this go
forth successfully and it is hoped
that there will be cooperation
from ail of her former students.
