Page 2 Heppner Gazette Times, Thursday, July 28, 1949 EDITORIAL rillUi4llTIM NATIONAl I EDITORIAL AsTbc-AMfSN Aid To Recovery Fire im-urance is a mainstay of the economy, says an exchange. In thousands upon thousands of cases, it has meant the difference between solvency and ruin. With a fire that lowered two plants more than a week ago still smouldering and occasionally flaring into live blaze when fanned by a stiff wind, a typical story in Forbes Magazine of how fire insurance serves the nation is of interest locally. Two years ago a New Jersey furniture company had a $1,000,000 fire which almost total ly destroyed the plant For a time there was doubt if the 100-year old company could survive the blow. However, some time before the firm had been sold a Use and Occupancy insurance policy. This coverage guaranteed that a high percentage of the profits normally earned by the company would keep coming in, and, in addition, it paid the salaries of key personnel. With this income to count on, the company moved to temporary quarters and started to re build. It sent its salesmen out, and used news paper and radio ads lu let people know it was still in business and was going to stay there. This year, a concern which appeared to be doomed in 1947, will gross around $3,000,000, and give em ployment to a small army of people. It was reassuring to learn that the plants des troyed in the July 18 fire were well covered with Insurance and that the farmers whose grain was in the elevators are fully covered. The amounts on the buildings is not sufficient to pay lor re building but it is enough to encourage the plan ning of new plants. Could Use Same Treatment Some much needed improvement is being made to Highway 97 from Dinty's on the Columbia for three miles south. That is the narrow, wind ing part of the road which has long been a bottle neck, particularly to the big freight trucks and to car drivers who are always in a whale of a hurry to get somewhere. The more dangerous curves have been widened to a degree that approaching traffic from either direction has a greater range cf visibility as well as abundant passing room. A great piece of work is being done in Cow Canyon where the "dead man's curve", known 'o Madras people as "Conroy's Corner", is being eliminated and an entirely new grade is being constructed from that point down the opposite side of the canyon. This improvement will elim inate a bad hazard and make the traveling public practically conscious-free of danger in negotiat ing the four-mile grade that lies between the Trout Creek valley and Criterian ridge. These improvements to Highway 97 have long been needed and are a part of the highway com mission's program of reconstructing and modern izing the earlier trunk lines. In due time most of must keep advancng in the cold war and Russia will retreat, he said. He pointed to the fear that in the Kremlin that the commun ists party would be "destroyed from within by the military if war came, as Hitler almost was twice." MICROFILM MAKES MONEY For the past four years the state income tax division has been handicapped by the lack of the older highways that need rebuilding will b given the proper treatment.

I Ray Smith, new commissioner, in charge of the state income tax division, believes he can do Boaraman win necessitate a auiereni approacn 10 do a bit of improving on lesser trunk lines, as the Willow creek highway. A change in the grade from Arlington to the Willow Creek highway. Definite plans for crossing at Heppner Junction have not been adopt ed, we are told, but in planning for a permanent change the commission is keeping in mind the proposed dams in the Columbia and will move back from the present right of way, it is said. Highways eventually wear out and have to be rebuilt The Willow creek highway was con structed in 1921. Funds were limited in those earlier days and the point was to build the most road for the money. Grades were avoided while curves apparently were welcomed. If it were a matter of building the highway today it is doubt ful if grade would deter the engineers if mileage could be saved by going over a hill instead of around it Also, many of the annoying little curves would be omitted by shearing off a hillside or rocky bluff here and there, making the road faster and safer. There is no prospect for immediate improve ment on the Willow creek highway, but sure'y some day, before too many years have lapsed, there will not only be the need, which is now present, but a demand for realignment and wid ening of the road. Start Exhibits Now Thirty-nine days remain until the opening of the Morrow County Fair and Rodeo. That is a comparatively short time to gather and prepare exhibits and to get ready for the big parade. Premium books will be the mails in a few days, giving exhibitors ample time to study the lists and decide upon their entries. The fair board and rodeo directors are working hard to make the 1949 show the best ever. They can make the plans, provide the facilities and post the award money but it is up to the people to complete the job of making the fair the exhibit ors, performers and, finally, the cash customers. Plans for an exhibit pavilion of sufficient sb to accommodate all of the products have been held in abeyance due to lack of building room. The board is anxious to get possession of the space now occupied by buildings under lease to the Heppner Lumber company and until this can be accomplished, it will be necessary to make use of the old CCC buildings, and this in turn has a tendency to curtail growth of the fair. Despite handicaps, the fair is growing and is worthy of the support of all citizens. The fair and rodeo, as a unit, is the one outstanding entertainment of the year and is bound to grow in importance as the years pass by. HEALTH FOR ALL (This space has been paid for by your Morrow County Health & Tuberculosis Association in order that factual material re garding health may be brought to you each week). Rehabilitation oi the Tuberculoug At one time, people usually connected the word "rehabilita tion'' with the training of a crip- plod war veteran for a useful oc- something in the way of creating more working space in this divis ion. Plans are about ready for microfilming tax records which will reduce the storage space now in use by 50 per cent. It also will give the state duplicate records, one set for the commission and another stored in a building in some other city of the state. If a fire should destroy the present state income tax offices in the old state office bulding the loss would be unestimatable. Another time, space and money saving machine Commissioner timith favors is a modern mailing machine that folds, inserts and seals letters. RENDER NEW SERVICE An entirely new and different kind of service is being performed for the public by the Oregon de partment of responsibility. This department of the secretary of state's office handles the admin istration of one of the state of Oregon's laws which affects very intimately the lives and at times the livelihood of most of the commonwealth's citizens. It pro vides that any motor vehicle dri ver or owner who becomes involv ed in an accident on the highway must forthwith provide proof of financial responsibility. This, simply stated, means that he must furnish proof to the de partment that he has some form of liability insurance to protect other motorists with whom he comes in contact. Until Secretary of State Earl T. Newbry decided recently that the public interest demanded revam ping the department, and pro ceeded to do just that, all acci dents went through normal chan nels. If proof of financial respon sibility was not furnished within a 45-day period, license plates and operators' licenses of those 30 YEARS AGO Heppner Gazette Times, July 31, 1919 C. E. Jones, manufacturer of the Jones weeder, received an or der this week from farmers in Montana for 50 sections of the famous weeder. Earle E. Gilliam, youngest son of Mr. and Mrs. Frank Gilliam of this city, returned last Sunday from Brest, France, where he spent most of the winter. He is mighty glad to be back in Hepp ner again. Jeff and Glenn Jones finished threshing the Frank Lieuallen grain last week and started on their own the first of the week. They are heading and threshing in one operation, using a new Case separator, power being fur nished by their Yuba tractor. David Wilson, exchange teller in the First National Bank of Pen dleton, spent a few days in Hepp ner last week visiting at the home of his parents, Mr. and Mrs. William Wilson. He return ed to Pendleton by auto Sunday, going over with Paddy Mollahan. J. W. Beymer left hurriedly on Friday evening for Montana to look after his sheep. Forest fires up there are spreading every day and sheep on summer range in the St Regis and Thompson Falls country are in imminent danger of being burned out. Joe Hayes and other Morrow county sheep men also have sheep in that country. Alta Jones and Vawter Craw ford Jr. motored to Arlington Sun. day and were accompanied home by the Misses Nora Hughes, and Hannah and Isabel Wilson. The young women have been enjoy ing a vacation outing at Portland and Seaside. Cecil Item: Miss Nellie Doney of Mount Novelty Yamhill, who has been visiting friends in and around Cecil for the past three weeks, left on the local for her home Wednesday. La Verne Van Marter is haul- jing the Andy Rood wheat into the warehouse in Heppner, using the big Mack truck. I Charles Bartholomew of Butter DEMOCRACIES MUST ADVANCE The bolsheviks have one foot set to retreat. This in effect is what Dr. Bohus Benes told a Salem audience con sisting of many state officials last Tuesday.

He is an instructor at the University of California and on the summer staff of Willam ette University.

Jlj SCHOOL K 1 0PENS HEPPNER CLEANERS ponded Suspension orders were handed to state police, who pro ceeded to take them up until such financial proof was furn ished. In most cases the suspensions were the result of misunderstand ing of the law, and not unwilling ness on the part of citizens to comply with it. Under the new law commonsense plan of ad ministration, field men are han dling as many of the suspension orders as possible and attempt ing to aid the people of the state to comply with the law, and at the same time aiding insurance men to help their assured in get ting filings made with the de partment as is required by the law. Previously, hardships were caused to many people who had their license plates and operat ors' licenses summarily taken away trom tnem, leaving tnem without means of transportation but this situation is gradually being eliminated as the new plan is being put into effect. STATE DEPARTMENT HUDDLES Since the days of President Ben Harrison-politicians have trump eted "put business methods in government", but their notes have been for export and louder than their orders. This week Governor McKay did something in this line that should be con structive. He announced that he intends to hold periodical coordi nation meetings of state depart ment heads similar to the meet ings of heads of departments in department stores. MIKE AFTER MIKE Democrats of Multnomah coun ty split recently over "Mike" De Cicco. Now the Young Democrats and the Multnomah county dem ocratic central committee have experienced another fission over Marion "Mike" Elliott, sheriff. One wonders what effect these schisms will have when election time comes next year and wheth er it will have repercussions in state politics. 1 cupation. Nowadays, people re alize that rehabilitation is an in tegral part of the treatment and cure of many illnesses, whether caused by accidents or diseases. For example, rehabilitation Is an extremely important part of the "total" restoration to useful living of patients with such seri ous chronic diseases as tuberculosis. Rehabilitation of the tubercu lous was once thought of as sep arate from the treatment of the patient's physical illness and the process was not begun until the physical disease was arrested. Today doctors believe that the rehabilitation process should start at the time the diagnosis is made. It is a shock for any person to learn he has tuberculosis and he needs help in accepting the diag nosis and learning to "live with his illness." It has been proved that such prompt attention to the patient's first reactions and emo tional difficulties makes the en tire curing process easier for both doctor and patient. The doctor is frequently assisted in these early steps of rehabilitation by the public nurse in the community and possibly by the services of a medical social worker. At the sanatorium, where reha bilitation services continue, the Datient is helped to understand that full cooperation with his doc tor and the sanatorium ptiysici ans is vital to his cure. It is easier for him to cooperate when it is made clear that, although his illness may take time and pa tience, he can again become a self-supporting Individual in em ployment to which he Is person oily inclined as well as physical ly suited. All rehabilitation services at the sanatorium are aimed at helping the patient understand his illness and its treatment, ana at preparing him to take up his activities in community life after his discharge. While many' tuberculous pa tients return to their former oc cupations, there are some Jobs which might prove too great a physical strain for a patient af ter his illness is arrested. When necessary, the patient is able to begin training in the sanatorium for a type of work which is in keeping with his physical strength as well as jus prefer ences. In many sanatoriums, the tuberculous patient receives ex pert guidance to help him discov er new interests and skills, the pursuit of which will make life for him more enjoyable and per haps even more remunerative Vhen he is able to leave the sana torium. o 1IIIIIIIIMIIIIIIIMIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIMIIII1IIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIII1 2 sRfo HAPPY ANNIVERSARY' Fir.iM ...
