Both Should Be Built
The City of Heppner and School District No. 1
are confronted with the necessity of constructing
a sewer system and a new grade school, respect
ively. Both are projects calling for extensive
financing and the pressure is on to get an ex
pression from the people as to whether they wish
to obligate themselves for either one or both.
Delay in getting approval of the sewer project
from the proper authority has been more or less
responsible for this teaming up which has result
ed in confusing the minds of many people as to
which is the more important that is, which one
should come first This is a matter the individual
voter will have to decide for himself or herself as
the one knowing best his or her ability to meet
the additional tax burden which either or both of
the projects will entail.
The same condition has been the contributing
factor In both cases increased population. A
town of more than 1600 persons is expected to
have proper sewage disposal and adequate drain
age facilities. The state board of health is be
coming insistent that the people here realize that
fact and give the council authority to start
proceedings to get the project under way. The
council has given the state board assurance that
a vote will be called as soon as the bond attorney
gives the word. If the attorney should submit an
unfavorable opinion it is unlikely that there will
be a vote on the question in the near future.
Overlooking the possibility of a negative re
ply, the fact remains that a general sewer dis
posal system is needed to supplant the private
septic tank system now in vogue. There is too
much disposal going into the streams running
through the town and this is a condition that will
grow worse irtstead of better whether the popula.
tion increases, remains about the same, or dimin
ishes. It will have to come sooner or later and
the state board of health is of the opinion that
now is the propitious moment.
Need of additional school room has been felt
for several years. Some space was gained by
moving the heating plant out of the main build
ing and rearranging the ground floor, but this
gain was soon wiped out by increased attendance.
With all available space in use and the prospect
being In favor of more growth there is nothing
for the school board to do but plan for a new
building. .
In a town the size of Heppner it is desirable
to have two buildings one for at least the first
four grades and one for the other grades and the
high school. The school board has acquired pro
perty for a grade school and plans construction
of a building and with plans for remodeling the
present structure a budget of $200,000 or more will
be required. That is a lot of money but it must
be remembered that the days of low cost con
struction went out with the end of World War II

When The Pig Gets Stuck
Down in Texas there is a columnist who is
quoted far and wide because of his ability to put
his thoughts into plain, understandable language,
albeit some of it is not the type taught in female
seminaries. He is Ed Girard of the Kingsville
Record. Commenting on war in a recent issue, Ed
made the following pungent observation:
"... When the tocsins of war sound as the
July 4th orators used to say we know what we've
got to do and we put sweat, toil, blood and dollars
into doing it. But when the fight's won, we are
as purposeless as a fat, sleeping pig with a belly
full of swill. And that's when the pig gets
Wheat League Bulletin Arrives
Volume I, Number I of "The Wheat Field"
arrived at the editorial desk this week. As the
name implies, the bulletin is being published in
the interest of the wheat indusrty and will be
issued quarterly. It is a product of the Oregon
Wheat Growers League of which Henry Baker of
lone is president; Don McKinnis, Summerville,
first vice president; Floyd Root, Wasco, second
vice president, and LeRoy Wright, Baker, secretary-treasurer
and editor, officers elected at the
annual convention held in Heppner early in
December, 1949.
"The Oregon Wheat Growers League has
fought for the growers for 23 years," says the
bulletin. "Well known wheat farmers in Oregon
have been officers and have spurred the league
by taking part in its activities. The League be
longs to the growers.
"It was started as the Eastern Oregon Wheat
League February 1926, at the Oregon Wheat Con
ference at Moro, called by the extension service.
F. B. Ingles of Dufur was elected the first pres
ident. Mr. Ingles' death in the fall of 1927 post
poned the first meeting until February, 1929.
Since then annual meetings have been held each
year, usually December 1," says the editor.
The first edition of "The Wheat Field" is cram
med with valuable information not only to the
growers but to the public as well. This column
hazards the guess that the bulletin will have to
come out once a month to fill the demands from
the growers and all others interested in the
grain industry.
