decided to pass up the regular

The next stop will be at the
Bechdolt ranch near Hardman
where sod waterway seeding has
been done and where consider
able attention has been given to
grass legume strips. Here also
will be an opportunity to observe
effective work of 2,4D in killing
out wild morning glory, a pro

After lunch at the Rhea Creek

see what is being done in the
way of strip cropping with some
of the new grasses for seed. The
tour will end at the Dr. Wood
ruff farm (the old Clive Huston
place) to view the dry land al
falfa crop, which Nels Ander
son says is really something.
Mrs. Mitchell Is
Mrs. Frances Mitchell, deputy
sheriff and tax collector for sev
eral years, has been named by
the county court to fill the un
expired term of the late Leon
W. Briggs as county treasurer.
To accept the elective position,
Mrs. Mitchell was required to re.
sign as deputy and tax collec
tor, but will remain in the of
fice as clerk until Janury 1, 1951
when she will be reinstated to
her former position.
For the present, or until July
10, Miss Leila McLachlan will
serve as deputy sheriff and tax
collector. After that and until
the first of the year, Mrs. Albert
Massey will take over.
In making this arrangement
the court has effected a small
economy in salaries. Such a move
has been discussed from time to
time, since the treasurer's office
is not a full time job as compared
to Other offices in thp rnnrt hnuso
and this will give ample oppor- (

Total Levy For
A perusal of .the Rural School
District budget as published prior
to the budget election on May
15, will reveal that the total levy
for the schools of the county is
$43,000 less than it was last
year. The base can be increased
only six percent above that of
last year which was $103,214.23,
or up to $109,406.00 even if the
present levy of $337,013 is adopt
ed. The base can only be increas
ed six percent in one year no
matter what the total levy that
For example (if present valua
tions remain in the county):
1950, $103,214.23; 1951, 109,406;
1952, $115,970. This will mean
that under continuing present
conditions the Rural District levy
will have to be voted on annually
at special elections to exceed the
six percent limitation.
In answering some of the ques
tions arising relative to the
budget and school financing,
Supt. Henry Tetz has arranged a
question and answer form in an
effort to simplify explanation of
the school problem.
Question: What is the Rural
School Board's own budget, how
is it handled within the six per
cent limitation and how does it
compare to last year?

County's Schools Actually
Than 1949, Figures Reveal
Answer: The Rural School
Board's budget ot $lu,735 is
slightly less than last year, $11,
00ft the superintendent's salary
is the same, $5,600. The amount
of this budget is taken out of the
budget within the six percent
before the remainder is appor
tioned in case the rural district
budget is defeated.
Question: Could an education
al program be maintained in the
county if the budget is voted
down and the schools were ask
ed to operate on the receipts now
available plus that amount un
der the six percent?
Answer: The amount below the
six percent which is $103,214.23
plus the receipts of $124,000,
would hardly take care of more
than instruciion costs and teach,
ing salaries. Most of the teach
ers are now under contract and
the districts are obligated for
that amount. Services would have
to be curtailed seriously $230,
000 worth anyone interested in
schools and the education of
children should study this seri
ously. (Ot course each district !
could vote on its own budget to
exceed the six percent and this(
levy would then have to be rais- j
ed within its own district).

day afternoon when Swogger,
Heppner second basemen came
up to bat with two out and two
men on bases. Swoeeer picked
one to his liking and slammed
a hot liner toward center field
with good clearance for it to get
through the inneld. The trouble
was that Roark, Fossil pitcher
couldn't get out of the way and
was knocked over by the burner.
lit fell dead within his reach and
he lobbed it over to first in time
to put the runner out and retire
the side. Roark also was retired.
Basil Burnstad hurled for
Heppner the first six innings.
He was enjoying good control
and didn't walk a single batter.
He was relieved at the beelnnlne
of the seventh by Doug Drake

Brooks, who succeeded him after
