ELEVATOR PROPERTIES DESTROYED Continued from page ons $170,000, including buildings, 50 to 60 tons of salt, 18,000 bushels of wheat, and $10,000 worth of spray and processed feeds Local agents of the Union Pa cific railroad have not estimated the railroad's total loss. Howev er, they have estimated the los of eight freight ears at $jz,uou and the loss of grain doors at $4,000. In addition, two strips of ties and tracks, 400 to 500 feet long, were rendered useless and will have to be replaced. The Tum-A-Lum Lumber com pany lost a large storage shed that lay at the west end of the elevators. About $3,000 worth of merchandise was destroyed along with a 30-ton set of scales and the building. The value of the building and the scales has not been estimated. The Pacific Po wer & Light company lost four large transformers, eight poles, and cable, all of which is being replaced at a cost of about $2,500. The Pacific Telephone and Tele graph company is replacing poles and cable at a cost of about $1, 000. Several hundred feet of highway asphalt was bubbled by the heat, but whether it will havf to be re-sealed has not been de termined. Walter Gilman could not estl mate the loss he Incurred by the burning of his barn and its con tents. A cook stove, a heating stove, a dining room table, one good bed, 125 feet of lumber, tools, camp cots, and drop leaf tables were among the items loot when the barn burned. A la-gj sealed chicken house adjoining the barn was also destroyed. A hay stack and a pile of fence posts belonging to Oscar George were lost, and a great number of posts were burned in fencing ar ound homes throughout the arep southeast of the elevators. Two grain bins belonging to Judge Garnet Barratt, and which were located beside Mrs. Mary Stout's home, were demolished early in the evening. Paint and roofing were damaged on several houses near the fire. How the fire began is any body's guess, but it is believed to have started in the head of the westernmost of the cooperative's elevators. The first alarm was sounded at 5:08 p.m. Monday. As city firemen arrived on the scene, flames burst through the elevator roof. The blaze was so high in the air that the department was unable to cope with it, and in less than 30 minutes a strong wind from the northwest had spread it to every building in the ware house area. Second and third alarms were sounded within 13 minutes of the first. By 5:35 p. m., fires had been reported at three points away from the major blaze. Within minutes of the first alarm, virtually every able-bodied man in Heppner was combat ting fire at some place in the city. At least 50 men joined in the attempt to remove records and merchandise from the burn ing elevators. Crews were at work all around the warehouse area and on hills to the north and east. Huge chunks of burn ing debris touched off grass fires as far away as the rodeo grounds. City and county grading equip ment was pressed into service to dig fire guards outside the city limits. By 5:40 p.m., the fire depart ment had moved to the Union Oil company's grounds and weie struggling to keep the flames from touching off the 200 barrels or so of oil, grease, and cleaning solvent that lay in the company warehouse. Garden hose, wet sacks, and hand-operated extin guishers were in use at practical ly every home in the north end of the city. By 5.50 p.m. the fire depart ment had split into three forces. Hose crews were working at the The oAmerican Way er have been taken away from local government In the iirsi place. During the past 35 years the share of all tax money going to Federal Government has In creased more than 2Vi times, while the share for local govern ment has fallen to about one fourth of what it was. The other way to reduce the cost of government is to get more for the tax dollar by spending it at home. The closer the spend ing of the taxes is kept to the ing more than forty percent of I people who pay the taxes, me TAX DOLLARS HAVE NO PUPS By DR. ALFRED P. HAAKE (EDITORS NOTE: Alfred P. Haaks. Ph.D., Mayor of Park Ridge. Illlnola, is a noted Economist, Business Consultant, Lei-turer and Author.) Joseph and Pharaoh many years ago, took over the entire land of Egypt, lock, stock and barrel, with a tax of twenty per cent followed by a seven-year depression. England Is now pay iqim f At pa vs. -t in irx m 7,7 fa ?T Efflfflm hajamim'MUWWWWim M 7a JRMMMMIRMlBm her national Income to govern ment in taxes for services which could be rendered better and at less cost under our own American Way. Even Sir Stafford-Cripps recently admitted that England has gone as far as she can go In redistributing Incomes and weal thy and must now go to work and produce more if the people want more. What will happen to our own United States with a national debt of more than a quarter tril lion dollars and taxes that ab sorb more than thirty percent of our national income ? It is not a pretty picture. We could shut our eyes to it and re fuse to recognze the warnings of history, in ancient Rome or mod ern England. Or we can face the facts fearlessly and, perhaps, still save our American Way by brin ging government and taxes back to the people. Some people seem to think that when we send a dollar to Wash ington it has pups on the way. Exactly the opposite is true. The dollar you send to Washington shrinks on the way, loses weight in Washington and still more on the way back. You are lucky if the benefits you get from Wash ington amount to as much as half what they cost in taxes. Many people fail to see that, because they thnk that somebody else is sending the dollars to Washington, and they don't care much, even though the dollars are inefficiently spent, so long as they are not sending them. Well, their own turn is bound to come, and then someone else gets their dollars, cut In two, So much of our national Income is already going for the cost of government that we do not have enough dollars to Invest In the tools and machinery which we need to maintain and increase the productivity of industry Productivity is the source of higher standards of living, and cost of government is the chief enemy to national prosperity. There are two ways to reduce the cost of government. First, we can reduce the functions and ser vices of Federal Government, es pecially those which should nev more vou eet for your tax money. The further away you send the money and the control ol lis spending, the less you get tor your money. That's why we ougm 10 in crease the share of the local taxe3 which goes to local government, where we get most for our dol lars, and why we should de crease the share which goes to Federal Government, where we get the least for our dollars. In local government, the people wno spend the money are neighbors and directly responsible to trie people whose money is being spent. The only dollars that have pups are those Invested in tools to in crease production. Government does not produce. It only con sumes, and for every dollar the government in Washington spends on you, someone has 10 send two dollars or more to Wa shington. Tax dollars have no pups ! THANK YOU CARD We are truly grateful to our friends and neighbors who work ed so hard Monday to keep our homes from burning. Mr. and Mrs. R. D. AUstott Mr. and Mrs. John Bergstrom o WORD OF APPRECIATION We take this means of expres sing our thanks to those who fought so hard to save our home Monday when our barn was bur ning. We are deeply grateful to the Arlington fire department for rushing to our assistance. MR.AND MRS.WALTER GILMAN. Glenn McLachlan home, at the Union Oil company, and at a pair of burning grain bins beside the home of Mrs. Mary Stout. All toll telephone circuits had been burn ed out. Tanks on the south end of the Union oil grounds held SO, 000 gallons of gas and oil. Had the oil grounds caught fire, all of Heppner might have gone up In flames. But an hour later, the terrific heat had diminished. Out side help had arrived, and, ex cept for wind-borne embers, the fire had been held to the ware house block. Another alarm was sounded at 6:45 pm., and fire fighters arriv ed at the Walter Gilman home In time to prevent a blazing barn from touching off surrounding houses. When time permitted a tally, It was found that help had arrived from eight outside districts. Fire trucks and their crews had arriv- jed from Pendleton, Ordnance, Mc Nary dam, Lexington, and the Umatilla forest. lone, Arlington, and Condon had provided avail able equipment and a great num- I ber of men. New White House Picture on Twenty $ Bills Authentic The picture of the White House which appears on the reverse of all $20 bills has been brought up-to-date, the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco reminded the public today, following In quiries from many persons who believed the new currency of that denomination now coming into circulation to be counter feit. The design heretofore in use showed the south front and grounds of the White House as they appeared In 1929. The new engraving was made from a photograph of the White House south front and grounds as they are today. Comparison of the two pictures will reveal the presence of addi tional trees and shrubbery, and of heavier foliage, so that the grounds are a deeper green .in the current design. Structural changes in the building Include the balcony which has been adJ ed at the second floor level, and four chimneys In place of the two in 1929. The White House flag, which blew straight out In 1929, hangs at an angle from its staff in the new picture, taken on a windless day. The bottom portions of the windows are of solid color, giving the Impression that they are op en. Lettering beneath the build ing has been changed from "White House" to "The White House." There has been no change In the design for the front of the note. STAR EH REPORTER AdulssloD prloes afternoon and eevnluf, unless sp. eUloaUy adrertised to be otherwlsel Oblldrsni Eit Prioe .17, Ped.
