This week between Palm Sunday and Easter Sunday, the
historic Holy Week, an annual renaissance, may bring us
warmer weather at last. Many Morrowites can recall,
however, that opening daffodils and hyacinths have been
pelted with hail and covered with snowflakes some springs in
this area. I've been hoping to get at some yardwork but am
not enthusiastic about working outside in the bone-chilling
Our Pacific Northwest has been excited about having the
only active volcano in the 48 contiguous states altering the
shape and usual spring schedule of lovely Mt. St. Helens. This
outburst has attracted many scientists to southwest
Washington State and has commanded a great deal of media
Last weekend saw lots of folks traveling to Lexington
again, as they had to visit the openhouse of Piper's Country
Store the previous weekend. Last Saturday there was a great
collection of cars and pickups parked near the Williams'
mini-ranch, and the large group of county residents was
joined by dozens of "outside" visitors. All of them shivered in
the cold wind during the extensive, lively auctioning of a
large accumulation of household and farm-type goods. Some
of the antique items included an old wagon seat, ancient
cooking articles, old clocks, and some long-used farm and
garden tools.
Right now quite a few of the ambitious high school
seniors in the county are rushing about filling in scholarship
forms and asking employers, teachers and acquaintances to
write letters of recommendation for them. They have only six
weeks more of classwork. Graudation invitations and
announcements have arrived, and senioritis is in full bloom.
A special, exciting, big event due at Heppner High School
in just three weeks is the First musical production in quite a
few years, "Frankenstein's Follies." The cooperative effort
by the music departments and its instrumentalists and
vocalists and the drama department should delight the
community. The extravaganza will be presented on the
evenings of Thursday, May 1 and Friday, May 2. The
students and coaches have been putting in many hours of
practice in preparation for their two-night run.
In Umatjlla. 9nd, Morrow counties there is a
federally-funded RSVP (Retired Senior Volunteer Program)
which is directed by June Wagner, who has her office in
Pendleton, but who corns several Wednesdays each month to
the communities of this county to help enlist retired persons
in activities that are helpful to them and to their
communities. Mrs. Wagner always checks in at the
Neighborhood Center in Heppner. The RSVP program and its
professionally-trained leaders insist that post-retirement
health is very closely related to the activity, the community
involvement, the feeling of being needed and appreciated
that they want to help older citizens realize.
The Older Americans Act under which the Area Agency
on Aging activities such as the senior meals, home health

Seniors and handicapped persons are partly financed relies
on volunteer help and volunteer cash contributions to carry
on much of their functioning. Morrow County residents need
to appreciate the advantages offered to elderly citizens here,
and everyone should be encouraged to support these

Nutrition in the news
It seems that nutrition has
become a household word.

The seven dietary guide
lines issued by the federal
government, although contro

attention on nutrition. The
guidelines, developed jointly -by
the U.S. Dept. of Agricul

and Welfare, are summarized
in a new publication called,
"Nutrition and Your Health", -which
is available at the
county extension office.

Window Devoted to Ag Day
Be sure to glance in the
window of Gardner's Men's
Wear as you walk down Main
Street in Heppner, and enjoy
the salute to agriculture
display. Marking national Ag
Day, March 20, Ruth Nutting,
Morrow CowBelles president,
made the attractive display,
featuring county agricultural
commodities and information
related to the industries.
Ag Day and the importance
of agriculture to our area was
spotlighted by Ruth Nutting at
a recent Chamber of Com
merce meeting. Representing
all the women in agricultural
groups, she called attention to
the day by presenting each
chamber member with a
packet of beef recipes to carry ,
home, with a surprise of a $10
dollar beef certificate hidden
in one packet.
