mission on Tuesday, the commis
sion's earlier decision in favor of the
goad did not deter the group's plan.
They appeared before the commis
sion as planned and expressed their
heartfelt thanks. Commission mem
bers were astonished, stating that
"thank you” was seldom heard in
their vocation. No small amount of
good will was established by the
committee’s action. Highway com
mittee men present were Bill Hutch
eson, chairman, Dave Reid, Lee Ross,
Ned Richards, and Allen Keith. The
work by this group is certainly to
be praised, local citizens stated.
Credit was also given to Bob
Veness who shared in the responsi
bility of organizing committee mem
bers from Prineville to Salem.
