Jimmy Carter has been in my thoughts a great deal
recently. Although it is ridiculously presumtious to compare
this columnist with the President of the U.S.A. I have been
doing this somewhat.
Our differences are great: his sex has for eons of time
had power over my sex; he is a southerner and my birth in
Michigan and lifetime in Oregon make me a northerner; his
choice of political party opposes mine. He has bigger and
better teeth and a great smile which he is flashing less often
today. He has an attractive wife, more sons than I have and is
considerably younger than I am. However, I wouldn't
consider trading my brother Donald for many Billy Carters,
and although I enjoyed looking around Washington, D.C. I
believe I'd rather live in Heppner, Oregon.
As for our likenesses, I feel we believe in many of the
same things the same God, the right of all humans of every
age, color and political and religious persuasion to have
freedom and to be politically equal. We want all to have
health care ; we continue to hope for the true arrival of world
peace. We both consider voting a vital duty. We both happen
to live in white houses. I read of Carter's travels; Carter
can't possibly know or care when or where I go.
The likeness that started this train of thought is that both
of us have been too many days away from our white houses
recently. When I've come home I've envied Jimmy with his
gardeners and secretaries but then I wonder if he is as
happy to return to his busy White House as I am to return to
my quiet one. His job carries such huge headaches mine
involves just a few little ones. It seems that many of Jimmy's
friends are political creatures always wanting something
from him. I know that my friends don't expect to gain
anything from me; but, how we enjoy one another simply
knowing that our only gain is the sheer pleasure of being
From 6 a.m. last Tuesday until after 2 a.m. Sunday
morning, I was away again. This trip took me, along with my
most recent pastor, to Salem where we spent five busy days
on the campus of Willamette University with more than 500
other United Methodists carrying on the business affairs of
the 250 churches of the denomination that are located in
Oregon and the big part of Idaho. This annual conference has
met since 1853, pre-dating Oregon statehood by six years.
I really enjoyed the experience, although by the final,
warm afternoon and evening I was very tired and sleepy. It
was most helpful to be with Steve Tollefson, and to have him
as a skilled chauffeur. I feel pleased that this fine young
friend and his delightful family have lived in our community
for three years, which happened to be difficult years for me.
Steve has helped many folks here with many problems,
and he will continue to be very helpful to many more as he
goes along through life ministering to humans in various
places. The Tollefsons are continuing their Christian work in
Boise where he is assigned to Amity U.M. Church which will
soon grow out of its temporary, schoolroom situation into a
fine, new church in a developing suburb. Our bishop
demonstrated the confidence the conference feels in Steve by
asking him to accept this appointment. You may write to the
Tollefsons at 5305 Cortez Circle, Boise, Idaho, 83907.
Although it wasn't easy, I managed to squeeze some
visiting and a little looking about in the brief moments when
we were not in meetings. How I enjoyed visiting with Faye
Munkers (Vernon was out playing with his model airplane).
The Munkers retirement home is the nicest I have ever
visited. Their yard is so lovely gorgeous flowers,
non-grasshoppered vegetables, perfect lawn and a windmill
and fountain engineered and constructed by Vernon.
Faye and I talked about her many years of service to the
Pioneer Memorial Hospital through its early auxiliary and as
a board member. We share much anxiety about the hospital's
future. She was distressed to learn that long-time neighbor
Kenneth Peck is confined there. She and Vernon read the G-T
each week and enjoy keeping up with news of their "home"
community although they are now happily integrated into
Salem activities.
In other visiting, I managed to include a quick trip over
to Silverton to chat with my cousin, Betty Kleinsorge, a
long-time friend of Frances Carlson, lone, and a real
catching-up talk over a good Chinese dinner with Carolyn
Blakely Shepard, a college friend who has relatives in this
I crossed State Street and strolled into Oregon's capitol
to feast my eyes on the four super county exhibits installed by
the Oregon Historical Society. The Morrow exhibit is best, of
course, but the arrangements featuring Deschutes, Benton
and Curry counties were pretty good, too. Our county exhibit
features the rangeland, the wheat acreage, the great
irrigated developments, lumbering and the nearing-com-pletion
coal-fired plant. I stood in front of the four cases
picturing Morrow County wishing more people would stroll
by to admire it with me.
During conference activities I visited with Rev. Ed and
Doris Cutting of Coquille and with Rev. Grace Drake from
Filer, Idaho each of whom sent special greetings to all
Morrow friends.
The smaller, historic buildings, beginning with the first
in 1842 and the large new buildings of Willamette University
are carefully placed amid spacious green lawns bordered
with lovely shrubbery and inhabited by hundreds of
scampering grey squirrels. If I lived near such an academic
institution, you would find me being a perpetual inhabitor of
its walkways and buildings.
