1950 Wheat Crop
At Lex Elevators
Less than three months ago far
mers and grain handlers were
wondering if there would be a
crop worth mentioning in 1950.
Today, with harvest in full swing
they are wondering what to do
with the crop. Three months ago
weather conditions indicated a
drouth. Then came the rains. On
ly negligible douth damage had
been done in some sections, and
much of this was repaired by the
copious rains of early June. Ac
cording to the wheatgrowers talk
ed to, it was one of the timeliest
rains in the history of graingrow
ing in these parts.
No one has come forth with
claims of yields comparable to
some produced in 1943, but the
overall picture would indicate
the 1950 crop will be the equal
of 1948 when vast quantities of
wheat were piled on the ground
in lieu of storage space.
Ted Smith, manager of the
Morrow County Grain Growers,
Inc., said this morning that ap
proximately 118,000 bushels of
wheat now cover the ground sur-
. rounding he-eoncern'Selevtftors
at Lexington. "We have a ML
Hood in one pile, a Mt. Adams in
another and are now building
one that may assume Mt. Ever
est proportions before we get
through with it," Smith said.
Some of the burden placed on
the Lexington facilities is due to
the lack of storage space at
Heppner. The Grain Growers'
new elevator is still in process of
construction and is not expected
to be ready to receive grain be
fore Saturday at the earliest. De
lay has been encountered In re
ceiving electrical units, some of
which were missent and had to
be traced down, but these have
arrived and it is hoped installa
tion will be accomplished in time
to permit receiving grain this
Elevators at Jordan, lone, Mc
Nab and Morgan have met the
situation up to the present but a
shortage of cars will cause some
of them to resort to open air
storage before the harvest pro
ceeds much farther. It was re
ported at noon today that the
outside storage at Lexington was
increased by 40,000 bushels.
Some farmers have deferred
cutting their grain with the hope
that storage facilities will im
prove. The new elevator at Hepp
ner will hold approximately 220,
000 bushels. The Interior Ware
. house company added several
bins, but these were filled in no
time. Storge at Lexington has
been crowded somewhat by grain
that normally could be taken
care of at Heppner.
The bottleneck at present is
the shortage of cars. With lumber
in strong demand and shipments
going from here to eastern mar
kets, allotments for the branch
are hampered. The Morrow Coun.
ty Grain Growers is working on
a plan to ship seven cars per
freight-train to Arlington where
they can be unloaded at the big
elevator on the river and brought
back up the branch on the next
freight. If this shuttle plan works
out, the car shortage will be met
in a measure and a good part of
the storage difficulty solved,
MAKING BIG LAMB SHIPMENT
Harold Cohn reported this
morning the purchase of 10,000
lambs from the Cunningham
Sheep & Land company of Uma
tilla county. He is making ar
rangements for a 75-car train
shipment to the east. Cohn says
that sheepmen from other north
west states are shipping their
flocks to Oregon for summer
range a reversal of the usual
procedure of Oregon flockmasters
summering in other states.

Binder Coat By
O-W May Include
Highway to Lena
Streets included on the Oregon.
Wash, highway route through
Heppner are receiving some at
tention fromthe state highway
maintenance crew this week.
Truman Messenger's crew has
been smoothing up the gutters
along Main and May streets and
it is understood that the long
pending drainage problem on
North Court street is about to be
taken care of.
A large maintenance crew is
camped in town and while no
official word has been given the
county court, it is presumed that
the work started in town will
be carried on up Hinton creek
toward Lena. A binder coat has
recently been given the highway
between Heppner Junction and
Jordan Siding and it is possible
that similar treatment is in store
for the highway east of Heppner.
Binder coats are necessary
once in three or four years to
prevent breaking up of the high
way surface. During hot weafner
the maintenance crew are frequently-'called
upon to scatter
crushed rock over spots where
the heat has caused the oil to
come to the surface. It is not fea
sible to give all the roads this
treatment every season but it is
advisable to protect sections that
are subject to conditions due to
heat and heavy traffic.
Speaking of oil slick on high
ways, Judge Garnet Barratt stat
ed Wednesday that the county
had been confronted with some
of the trouble on the lone-Gooseberry
section and that the coun
ty crew had been called upon to
scatter quite a lot of binder rock
The reconstruction job on the
Hardman- Chapin creek section
of the Heppner-Spray highway is
coming along In good shape.
Some grade work, remains to be
done on the Chapin creek end
where rock fills are still being
made. Realignment of the grade
has necessitated heavy fills in
spots and making cuts in dif
ferent places. It will be a fine
piece of highway when the job
Judge Barratt reported that the
court has joined with the forest
service in making an improve
ment to the road from the north
of Chapin creek to Parker's Mill
area. This is desirable from the
standpoint of giving better ser
vice in forest operations, both to
the forest service and in the
hauling of timber from that area.
Some of the new grade will par
allel the Kinzua Pine Mills com
pany road in that district but
since the company maintains a
private road system over which
its trucks run sans PUC license,
co-opertion on roads is not feas
ible at this time.
Referring to the Lena-Nye
Junction section of the O-W high
way, Judge Barratt said that sur
facing of that stretch is desir
able from the standpoint of the
division engineer who finds
maintenance an expensive oper-
atin. Given a permnent surface
the road would attract more tra
vel and would be far less ex
pensive to maintain. As to the
south section of the Heppner
Spray highway, funds for con
struction are derived from a dif
ferent source, in which coopera
tion with the Bureau of Public
Roads is required.

Car Leaves Road
Two Portland Boys
Figure in Accident
On Heliker Grade
James Paulson was kille'd and
Charles Rollins suffered serious
injuries when the car which Paul
son was driving plunged over an
embankment on the Heliker
grade about one.half of a mile
from McNab Monday evening.
The boys, both 16 years of age,
were returning to the W. H. Zin
ter ranch from lone when the ac
cident happened. It was between
8:30 and 9 o'clock and it Is be
lieved the car lights had failed
and the boys were trying to make
It to the ranch before complete
darkness settled. They were from
Portland and had been at the
Zinter place about three weeks
helping with harvest. .
Mrs. Mable Davidson and a
hired man were enroute to Hepp
ner for machinery parts and were
near the forks of the road where
the Rice and Heliker grades meet
when they saw a car coming at a
lively clip. Mrs. Davidson asked
her driver to stop and wait for
the dust to clear before they pro.
ceeded to the Heppner highway
at McNabb. They had just parked
when they heard the crash at the
second curve up the Heliker
grade. The first inclination was
to turn around and go to the aid
of the boys but the driver said
the two of them could do nothing
and they should go for help.
They drove to the Phil Emert
place a few hundred yards dis
tant where three men joined them
The boys were carried out of the
gully, which is quite deep at that
point, and Paulson died shortly
after reaching the road. Young
Rollins was conscious but could
n't talk enough at the time to
give much information.
Feeling that time was too pre
cious to wait for the ambulance,
the injured boy and his compan
ion were placed in a car and
rushed to the hospital at Hepp
ner where it was found that Rol
lis had suffered a head injury
but apparently nothing worse
than that and shock. Paulson's
head was badly crushed and he
apparently suffered other injur
ies. The boys and a third youth
Chuck Gannett, came to the lone
section together. Paulson and Rol
lins getting jobs at the Zinter
place and Gannett working at
another place. Gannett's father
learned of the accident and flew
from Portland. He was greatly re
lieved to learn that his boy was
not in the car with the others.
James D. Paulson, son of Mr.
and Mrs. Ole Paulson, was born
March 27, 1934 at Rapid City,
S. D. and has been in Portland for
several years. He is survived by
his parents, a brother, Kenneth,
and a sister, Margie.
The father arid mother arrived
in Heppner Tuesday morning and
made arrangements to have the
body shipped to Portland that
evening. It was consigned to the

"This would be one of the out
standing developments in the Pa
cific northwest in many years,"
The estimated cost of the pipe
line would be $172,374,000. "Once
in operation," Flagg said, "it
would reduce gas rates in Ore
