After discussing problems in the city such as the railroad crossing south of town, com- pletion date for moving the railroad tracks, completion date for the fill area before it's brought to grade (90 days), it was felt that Arlington needed a public relations man who could sell Arlington to various industries in hopes that they would bring new ec- onomy to the area. Attending the meeting from Condon were Mayor Bruce Mer- cer and Ernie Fatland who spoke informally at the meet- ing. Mercer stated that Condon would like to assist Arlington in any way possible and that many Condon residents would like to see Arlington establish a Boat Marina for boating en- thusiasts in the surrounding area. Fatland discussed the possi- bility of someday establishing a bus route from Arlington April 20 ...... 51 33 Arlington Rodeo Entering Final Stages for Event ARLINGTON  Plans for the 1966 Arlington Rodeo May 7 and 8, sponsored by the Ar- lington Saddle club, are in the final stages.

Rowe Creek Reservoir water is low and consequently would not permit of lesser dimensions, said the state of- ficial. The fish are from the Oak Springs Hatcher, located on the Deschutes River at Maupin, from where they are carried to their destination in special tanker trucks. Opening day for fishing is set for this Saturday, April 23. Coffee Hour To Be Given of Eugene. All three are mem- bers of the department. Highlight of the day's pro- gram was the noon luncheon when those attending were per- mitted to ask questions by di- rect wire to the North Ameri- can Air Defense Command (NORAD) in Colorado Springs, Colo. Mr. Price said "In order for communities to respond to dis- asters of major proportions it is necessary to organize under a governmental structure that permits the utilization of all community resources in coor- dinated effort. This includes utilization of resources of busi- ness. industry, civic groups, public and private institutions The NCO and Airmen Wives as well as those of local gov- Club will sponsor a Welcome crnment.

According to the officials one of the things which im- pressed them most was the way in which local facilities have been used by the Condon Civil Air Patrol in coordinated ac- tion with the Air Base and lo- cal volunteers, in fighting range fires and emergencies such as the December, 1964, flood. Ted Schadewitz, local high school teacher and coach, has been conducting a course in in- dividual family survival as a part of the modern problems course at the high school. He reported on this program dur- ing the conference and ex- plained that he had assigned class members a project involv- ing means of innovating a fall- out shelter in their home or around their farms utilizing materials and facilities already available. It was surprising, said Mr. Price, to learn of how much shelter could be provided by using a bit of ingenuity as demonstrated by the high school students.
