VOLUME XV MAUriN, OREGON, THURSDAY, MAY 10,1929 . Number 28 ROSY HALO RESTS ON MINIM PLAINS WATER SYSTEM Prospect Shin Fr Irrigation With Compltlon of Clear Lke Impounding Dam (By N. C. Hedin) Obstruction Removed The Wapinitia Irrigation com- limy rellivtd J. 1 Drawn ind L C Henneghsn of tht burden of carry lug the Anna Long land mortgage, which they have carried since 1027. ThU matter now hai been cleared up a one forward etep in tho dam construction plant of the company. Last fall the company itnrtcd the Clear Lake dam, employing a force of men and Rome horse , until the now stopped the work. The rut off eub-wall or core 192 feet from lope top to "top j tjp and acrta the bottom, waa put in. Thin win. the hardest part of the Job a th fix foot tren:h hnd to be dug and the wall act while the gas engine and pump drained the und'-r water level io workmen could execute the tank. Marine Engineer Wm. J. Illckcy, president of, Wapinitin Irrigation company, hud personal charge of thl tickluh piece of work; only one serious accident occurred, licit of Harold Becklund, who sustained an injured foot. The conduit pipe, "i Inch" in diameter and 40 fevt long, wnt trenched and laid and wr.f r proofed through the dead wall of the core. The frame for the sliding head-gate was also installed. Th foundation log of the dam - crlh Were cut, pealed, hauled and Inid In poaltlon after the trenches were cut In the earth and rock for their foundation ' cradles. Soma " crow log were alo" laid and a fslxe apron tacked to the lower side of core wall, on top of crosa crib logs, to hear off the flood waters of spring so the sub-irtrurttfre woujld not be lmpared thereby. The state engineer recommended few engineering firms, whose plans for the dam would be acceptable to the state, end who would act as con sulting engineers to support En gineer Hlckey'a construction plans. These engineer made several visits to the dam site Inst fall, checking the work with N. G, Hedin who hnd general supervision of the enter prise. The Sandy Lvinmher company furnl hed much material, such as timbers for use In the frame "d core. The 12x12 face frame tim-' bers to be drift-bolted to the cote 1hf) that tnny be found to he im wall were sawed, hauled ond skidded ' possible. Al.o we want to put two Into the bottoms for use In the first J men on the upper main canal for work o'f this season. It will probably j fnur or five month , whose job will be of some Interest to tho water ; be to fix low banks up to uniform user to know that tho engineer ,fndnrd so we can get action on plan and consulting engineers' fceaj cost the company nearly $700.00. This shows how many unavoidable item of expense arise that must be met. The Wapinitia frrigaiion com pany's tystem now includes the original water rights of Joseph R. Keep. ' The Eastern Irrigation, Power and Lumber company dating back from 1902 to 1907 and sub sequent rights. These early dating made it possible for the Wapinitia Irrigation company to enter into the adjudication of White River water rights with confidence ; that when the legal smoke cleared the water Tight , held by the compnny and to be developed by the compnny , for the uso and benefit of the water users on Wapinitia Plains would be of the value and dignity only made possible by the early filings of their successors which the Wapinitia Irri gation company purchased (not by questionable conte t or stealing) hut by purchase and by virtue of a bar gain and sole deed, to all previous rights, titles and interest. Anyone who attacks the company directly or undlrectly today In ood faith Kor bad faith automatically strikes at the best intertest of every water u er on Wapinitia Plains and indeed against the best interest of southern Wasco county which includes all farmers, all business hm cs, even to and Including the railroad. It ha been well said that "what gocth out of the mouth and not whnt en-1 terth dcfilth the man." It I equally true that most cooperative or quasi public enterprises fail -or succeed by the Joint energy from' within. We, LEASES RANCH ON BADGER R. W. Richmond Will Gratify Long Ambltlon and Will Fur Farm It has long been the ambition of 11, W. Richmond to embark -Utho fur farming industry, and to that end recently leased 280-tract on Badger crock, owned by Tom ChasUln. With the kaao goes team, chickens, tur keys, bees and farm Implement. Richmond says thre 1 a water right on the place and that he will be able lo farm a considerable part of the ranch. ' lie will thus be able to fence a part of the place, flood it and pro ceod with hi Ides of rasing muskrata for their fur. He has made an In ten. ivo study of rat culture and If the lltcraure he ha been sudying is up to the mark we, may expect soon to learn our wrothy service station man is the muskrat king of eastern Oregon. u.1 farmer and water company, have many major common. interest. Injury or hardship to one or all of hc farmers hurts the company and vice versa. We went well over .he hill to get the di.m's first unit omuletcd In 1929. This wonderful itoruge wealth is . lipping away Into .he set. It is ours by law and title, sbitoliitcly, if w cn ue it. If we don't it may be successfully chal lenged by uny designing Interest whose intial step mu t be im forfeit the curly datings of our right and iiccpt new one secondary lo every other exiting right on .the White River water shed. This la a defeat in it inception on the the' face of it. Again let us reason this matter nf fllinr victim-. Uy new and false IP 'da.' Any outfit, man or compnny, who could by any mnnner or trick of law take from the company and farmers the storage right at Clear Uke or elsewhere In It system, muct not only construct a dam hut ilao must construct their own chrtal system and laterals, once the com ptny'a and. farmer system is now In use to spread the natural flow of Clear Creek and Frog Lake, A wo increase our main canal capcity we now have the law and legal right to use all the water we can hnndle UP t 376 second feet of flow, which is more than -the creek carries on an average t prlng run off. In other words the storage is fine for us to use in conjunction with the natural flow but of very doubtful value to an ouUsldo interest, whq would have no flow rights and no rnl or flume or early date right. Yes, we need the dam, and from the response of some farmen. and gopd promise and prospects of others wlio Bee flic light and desire to join the company fund far the dam, we expect tn fcet it, even to try to catch prt pf the flood waters of his year, the W waters that mus.t ho allowed to flow into the Deschutes,. becati e our cannl won't carry any more. The ten upper miles of conal are mostly prettly good, much of it is more than needed, but a canal is like a chain, "no better than its weakest link." It will require $1000.00 to finance this part of the work, but it is vital and of first im portance to cveryalfalfa grower.,, It took $4,000 cold cash Inst week to pay up the title and orginal price of the 160 acres at the dam lite. J..S. Brown and L. C. Henneghr.n, stood in tho breach for two years with this cash burden on 'their per sonal shoulders. It is a pleasure to bo able to state that they hnve been relieved and they in turn now pledge new support to the dam program for 1D29 as the logical step in the project's forward march. A 15-foot dam at Clear Lake will store 15-sections of water, (A fool could figure that who never saw an nrithemetic if he were told that the area of lake now la 640 acres.) Don't let anybody stuff you with sny other false statements. 16 sec tions of water stored In Clear Lake (being 9,600 acre fcetj would take rare of all of our pre- ent needs and enve its a tidy surplus of water Insurance against a dry year, and to "romote sub-division and sale of 'Tge dry unit. It Is only history repeating itself. Mr. Ide, of the Oregon State Chamber of Commerce, wrote to the company recently and expressed a hope that the dam would be completed .' oon so the state cham ber could turn , its organization (Continued on third page) iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiimiiiiMiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiwiiiiiiw :-: MAUPIN niiiiiiiiiiiiiifiiiMiiiiiuuiHW Cominnieinicemeinifh Program t . o- .

MAUPIN STUDENTS HONOR FAIRV1EW TROPHY CUP The members of tho High school Student Body are honored to have the safe keeping of tire beautiful Fairvicw cup, won by that district whose students now- attend this school. The cup was given by The Daller Chamber of Commerce sev eral years ago for the best display of sehool work at the County Fair. Alta Chnstsin, who was a former member of that district, brought the cup here Monday. It now stands be It will be an inspiration to the many It will be an inspiration to themony students who see it daily. TYGH DEFEATS MAUPIN La t Friday afternoon the' II;s HI TIMES :-: S e school students were dbmis-ied so that they could go to Tygh to wit ness the baseball game between the two teams. The Criterion school bus conveyed the student; to Tygh Val le. .. " The game resulted in a victory for Tygh, the score being 9-3 in favor of Tyrh. Our boy went to Tygh with the Idea they could sleep, con sequently they were still sleepir:? when the gome ended. Maupin played the the game error by error instead of by innings. Tygh played a good clean game, Maupin beinir defeated by errors. This puts Mau pin on a fifty-fifty basi, for the pennant. The pennant still depends on the remaining game with Wap initia. k " BLOOD RED BECAME THE SUN The word blood, summons a host of images. The blood of heroes! The blood of martyrs! The blood of hapless victims! What is ft? Gruesome? Gory? The unpleasant? Or rather Is it not a sign of a sym bol of life, itself marvelous, intricate fluid worthy of interest and conver sation. - Alta Chostain has found through general science that indeed its many purposes and properties present a sturdy fascination to the intelligent and curious minds. The blood is a living fluid of the body. It carries the food to the cells of the body and discharges the waste matter from them ns well. It also dl tributes exygen to all parts of the body and removes carbon dioxide from nil parts to the lungs. Of equal importance is its constant and ac curate reputation of the tempera tire of the body. , Blood is composed of the fluid plisma, in which fh nts red and-white eorpuscleg and blood pistes. .It biso contain- a wonderful substance en !- d fibrinogen. Red corpuscles are disced shape obpec about l-2t0rt of an inch in diameter. About five mil lion red corpuscles enn be fourd in i tiny drop of blood. T'.eo small corpuscles are m y up of ,aubstane, which, because of it lion, is en'd hemoglobin and c.irries it to Millions f cells through out tin oi.iy. The corpuscle-; also carry carbon dipxide, but most of 't i-J carried away ;ntz the plasma of the blo(-d. Tht whit? "orpuscles, like n arm I Ru..rd. pro tect the body by destroying disease germs, They also s0 destroy the weak nnd dead red corpuscles. White cor puscles move like the tiny ameba, which lc a one-celled creature. The ripogen of the blood when exposed to air forms fibers which make a strong het and stops the corpuscle, thus coagulating the blood of a wound. Circulation of blood can be com pared with the water and drainage systems of a vast city. The central pump of the sy tern, is the heart. The blood movers from the heart through the arteries, veins and enpilaries. Muscles surround the wnll of the arteries causing them to expand with each heart heat. This pulsation forces the blood through the chan nels and I' known as the pulse. General scicnee can only tou"h on Ihe subject of blood, but can open 'be mind to apprrrintion for the vientist and specialist who is able to ''Tht dirse end relieve human dis continued oa second page) MOTHERS' DAY REMEMBERED BY MAUPIN BOY SCOUTS Addieufi by Dr. Stovall and Rv.

The meeting opened by a flap solute and Invocation, after which Dr. Stovall talked to the boys re garding the significance of the day i lie extolled the work of mothers in ! raising their children; told how they , deprived themselves that their boyr I and girl;, might ertjoy pleasures and J of the many loving measures taker i for the benefit and education of th J young. The doctor grew pathetic a I times' and' his remarks touched a re ! sponsive chord in the hearts of al' present. Dr. Matthews, as alwe.ys, won th' audi'nee by his touching remark anent the work of. mothers of tlv world. He illustrated, by Biblica. text, the love extended by mothers and how that love was Inspired by a love of the Almighty who e teach ings were that all should love and cherish the mothers who gave them birth." lis tilk was beautiful and his large audience was sincerely touched ty Jus word pictures and comparisons.

MANY ATTEND POPPY SALE total of $76.00 Takon in and a Good , Tim Enjoyed . The poppy sale and dance held at Legion halj Saturday night was an unqualified success from every side, a total of $76.00 being taken in, all of which will be sent to aid disabled veteran'. While not all the poppies were sold, still with dance tickets and supper" fees the amount realized waa as stated above. The dance music was supplied by Claude Ro berts and Mrs. Don Miiler, and was of the old-time variety, which took with the crowd like wildfire.' Dur ing tht dance Mr. Panchadn filled in with some numbers on the accordeon which made a pleasing diversion.- NO GARBAGE ON HIGHWAYS State Road Department Advises Not - lo Deiocrato Scenery : Garbage is unsightly, unsanitary end an eyesore to those passing over our highways. By despositing such in close proximity to the traveled roads Ic.mps the community that al lows such to be done as being shift less and without a care for the health of its people. Foreman. Addington calls our at tention to the dumping of garbage close to the highways, there to rust and rot and being anything but con ducive to a Kod opinion on the part of tourists and traveler, of Maupin. On the first turn on the Criterion grade several loads of tin cans and other refuse has found resting place just over the grade. At various other places along his section the same thing is to be teen. Adding ton says there is a law against this practice, also that it is an expensive 1 J A one, as nis crew may oe oruereu v remove same, the public paying for the work. If you have. garbage to dispose of place it on the accepted dumping ground, even if so doing entail- a little longer haul. The ef fect will be more pleasing and th sanitary aspect made clearer.

PORTLANDER MAY BE VICTIM OF COLD Portland Attorney Sought by Frioad and Thought to Havo Ban " Victim of Drowning A report reached here Tuesday afternoon that Lester W. Hum phreys, prominent Portland attor ney, had lost his life in thjs De chutes a short distance above North unction. Searchers are scouring he river banks and 4 diver may be lent up from JPortlajid to try and rate the body. ; Humphreys with Walter, Gearing i a companion left their camp for ip river to fih. While on the way . earin complained of not feeing veil and returned to camp. When is partner had not returned in the vening Gesrin became anxious and tarted a search, but no trace of the ther man could be found. Gearin,' ith a railroad man from . North unction, went up the river a dis tance of about three miles, and finding no trace of Humphreys re turned to ramp and organized a' searching party. . . When he left camp the missing nan was wearing heavy hob-nailed boots and waders,, and if he had not fallen into the river his tracks1 could easily have been followed. There !s little liability that the missing man -ould have strayed away, as $he na ure of the canyon about North function is such that it, would ye-- -uire a stiff climb to get out, and there is no heavy timber there.. It is said that a profes ionnl diver nay be flown from Portland to tske up an under water search for Mr. Humphreys. The lost man .waa j-orominent in - Oregon.- He served ns United States attorney for Ore d was a major in the Jate war. He waa a graduate of Corvallis law school and wa, at one time a mem ber of the law firm of Simon, Gearin, Hnmnhrevs & Freed, aqd before his ppointment as U.

MAUPIN TOO MUCH FOR DUFUR Forman'i Wildcat Take Dufur Into Camp by 4-1 Score Several score of baseball fans w'.tnes ed a real baseball game on Sunday when Bill Forman'a' "Wild cats" trimmed the Dufur town team by a score of 4 to 1. It looked for a time as though Dufur .was to go home scoreless but a lucky hit through the infield gave that team life and one lone tally was msrked up as a result. Poling nnd Reijick were the points for Maunrn, while Davidson and Steuben officiated an battery for Dufur. Poling had the hrst of the argument in strike-out?. The score by inning3 follows: Mrupin 1 2 3 4 6 6 7 8 9 , 1 0 1 0 0 2 0 0 ? 4 Dufur 1 23456789 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 01 A windy day and flying dust handicapped the players to some ex tent but it was not In the cards for Dufur to win, as with old heads like Dcnick and Poling directing Maupin it would be hard for any team herea bout to beat our boys. The next game will most likely be with Tygh Valley at the fair grounds next Sun day.
