a western state.

INDIGENT FUND FLUSH
The fund for relief of persons
injured on the highway by motor
vehicles now shows a balance
of $73,411, the state industrial
accident commission reported
The fund was created by the
1941 legislature and is used for
payment of hospital nurses, am
bulances, and doctors in cases
where the injured persons are
destitute or very poor. The fund
is derived on the basis of 25 cents
from each motor vehicle driver's
license issued by the secretary
of state. The use of the fund is
an approximate thermometer of
the commonlabor workingman.
OREGON FINANCIALLY FIT
"The taxation problems of
Oregon appear to be less severe
than those of other states," said
Oregon's Budget Director Harry
Dorman, who has just returned
from Boston where he attended
the annual convention of federal,
state, county and city budget
"I have never attended a more
serious minded meeting. Budget
directors generally, and particu-
larly those from eastern states,
are a nervous lot these days,"
DECRY P. O. DIRECTIVE
The postmaster general's re
cent directive for curtailment of
postal services, when fully per
formed, "will virtually wreck
what was once called 'the great
est service organization on earth",
is a part of a resolution adopted
by the Oregon State Federation
of Postal Clerks and auxiliary
Saturday in Salem.
'The directive is a step back
ward toward the days of the
pony express," the resolution
Copies of the declaration will
be sent to the president, to
Oregon's senators and congress
men, and the president of the
American Federation of Labor.
Payments to Oregon's unem
ployed dropped to a point that
is tower than at any time aur
ing the past year.
Only 9,690 persons received
checks for unemployment com
pensation during the past week,
as compared with 18,338 in the
last week of April and 14,419 a
year ago. About one-fifth of
those receiving compensation
were logging and lumber work
ers. Another 11 percent were food
processors in the Portland area.
SPEED WORST KILLER
Excessive speed was the prin
cipal factor in 90 fatal accidents
in Oregon last year, Secretary of
State Earl Newbry revealed this
Traffic accidents killed 28 per
sons in Oregon during this month
bringing the total for 1950 to 107
compared with 102 at the same
time last year.
It Is a Fine Plant
Morrow county residents have every reason
to, be prouo of the fine new building which was
dedicated Sunday afternoon at the Fioneer Mem
orial Hospital. It is one of the most complete
jobs it has been the privilege of the writer to
visit and his feelings are the same as those
expressed by all who were conducted through
the hospital Sunday afternoon following the
Everything that is essential to the successful
operation of a hospital has been built into the
building. The knowledge and experience of years
of drawing plans for other and larger hospitals
.were incorporated and enlarged upon in designing
the Pioneer Memorial building, with the result
that those having a professional knowledge of
hospitals and their operation declare this to be
without a superior in a wide area.
The handsome manner in which the people
of the county provided the funds for the purchase
of equipment enabled the hospital management
to buy the latest and best of everything required.
Their result is that when those of our people
who may f nd it necessary to avail themselves of
the services offered it will be with the assurance
of the best money can buy.
The gratitude of the people is due those who
have had the burden of seeing the hospital
through to dedication and opening. It has been a
monumental task and doubtless there were periods
when the members of the county court and the
hospital committee would have been thankful
to be relieved. But they held on and can now
look upon their "child" with pardonable pride.
They will ieel rewarded to see the hospital full
of patients and contributing to a higher health
standard for the entire county and surrounding
Cooperation Pays Off
One of the best examples of cooperative effort
has been given the community during the week.
It has been a definite demonstration of the time,
honored saying that "Where there's a will there's
Desiring to complete the dance pavilion in
time to take care of the pre-rodeo dances, the
fair board asked for volunteer labor to pour the
concrete floor, funds for the purchase of materials
having been provided by subscription by farmers
and businers men. Friday, June 9 was set as the
date for getting together to do the work. Every
thing was in readiness to go to work at 7 a.m.
It was found that there was plenty of sand and
gravel on hard but the cement that had been
ordered had not arrived. It took some scurrying
around to got enough cement to start the sizeable
crew on the job but sufficient material was
gathered up to lay moe than the planned
amount of flooring.
Sixty-four men and husky boys with wheel
barrows, shovels and whatever other tools were
needed, participated in laying considerably more
than one-half of the 60 x 180 feet of space by
shortly after noon Friday. During the noon hour
it was decided that the entire space should be
floored and it was but a matter of minutes until
sufficient funds and materials had been sub
scribed to make this possible. Wednesday, June
14 was set aside as the time for getting" together
again and completing the job.

So it is that the dancing public will find the
pre-rodeo dances shifted from the old pavilion
on North Main street to the new pavilion on the
fair grounds. It will mark the establishment of
a new order in the conduct of the fair and rodeo,
and all because men of vision and resourceful
ness directed willing hands and generous hearts
in a cooperative effort to do a great task that
would have cost far more than the fair board
was able to pay.
