A scant two score ot American marines, supported by a few more than that number of marlne tralned and led TMrttm.j-eonstaiulary, hold the bloody field of Ocotal, scene of the first decisive engagement In the country since the occupation. One marine is dead, another seri ously Injured and one member ot the constabulary has been treated for severe hurts. Of the attacking force of 500 under the recalcitrant liberal General Sandino, which tried during 17 hours to enter the town of Ocotal, 300 lie dead outside the town' and 100 are wounded. The battle might have terminated In different fashion had it not been for two scouting planes from Managua. Swinging across the country on a routine "look-see" the machines tra versed the lines after the fighting had progressed several hours and brought word here. A squadron of five bombers was ordered out at once by Brigadier-Gen eral Logan Feland. Driving full speed the 110 miles intervening, despite a tropical storm, they swung low across the attacking lines, raking riflemen and machine gunners with point-blank Ore. - . MANY CASUALTIES I Ill VIENNA RIOTS ! - , .Vienna.' . Contrary to all expecta tions Sunday found the seipei gov ernment stronger than ever, without the least Intention of resigning, but concentrating all its efforts on. restor ing order as quickly as possible and, If necessary, with the severest meas ures. . ' For many hours Friday and Satur day the notice and mobs had struggled In various parts of the capital. There were some desperate encounters, and although the authorities made public casualties numbering 12 dead and 100 wounded, the general belief is that they exceeded 120 dead,, with more than 1000 wounded. The government, with the support of the police and troops, is absolute master of the situation. Everywhere it is, emphasized that the riot was in no way directed against foreigners, who have not been molested in single instance. The central section of Vienna is quiet, though presenting the picture of a state of seige, with all public build ings guarded by troops and police and machine guns at points of vantage.

Harvest Weather The warm weather of the past few days has been Ideal for ripening grain. The few machines operating in this vicinity are encountering tough straw, and the warm weather is brittling it pp. , Next week, will see harvest operations well on the way in the Athena district. larvest Operations In Athena District With almost perfect weather con ditions, harvest operations have com menced in this vicinity. Yesterday and : today a number , of machines have pulled into the fields, and while some of the straw is quite tough, the machines are as a rule equipped with gasoline engines and have plen ty of power to overcome this slight handicap. Indications point to a satisfactory grain yield. Operations in this sec tion have not advanced far enough to get an accurate estimate as to what the average yield will be but growers are expecting the crop to range from 35 to 45 bushels per acre, with some fields promising as high as 50 bushels per acre. Quality tests so , far have been satisfactory. In the Adams district where threshing has been under way all week, the grain is testing from 58 to 59 V4 for soft Federation, Hybrid tested at Pendleton, showed 58H.

An accident that years. bbo left him a cripple has not prevented Melville J. Webster of Elkhart, Ind., from mount ing to the position of one of the na tion's most eminent clarinet soloists.

For years he was the sen sntlon of the Cincinnati Symphony or chestra, "There Is nothing unusual about my musical career," says Webster. "Al most any boy, at some time or another, cherishes a secret ambition to piny a band instrument. It Just hnppened that I was given an opportunity to carry out that ambition. I was the happiest youngster in the world when my father bought me an instrument and secured for me a competent In structor, Music became my one inter est. I plunged into it with all of the enthusiasm a boy can command, greed ily absorbing as many as four lessons a week, "When my unfortunate accident came I blessed those hours of study.

Word was received that 31 Bend, Oregon Legionnaires, members of the drum and bugle corps, had started from Bend afoot for La Grande. It is said that failure of the BenJ bank resulted in loss of convention funds and the musicians, rather than miss the state meeting, decided to walk and accept any rides that would be forthcoming, With harvesting of the light soil crops of Umatilla cotinty under way, enough grain has been threshed to confirm earlier claims that these districts will produce one of the larg est crops in years. - On the hriv-ler lands, harvesting is juBt boginnlnjr to start, and not until next week can fairly accurate estimates be made of the yi-jld. How ever, the universal claim for a norm al crop is forecast. Chicago reports that - wheat sup plies in the United States are to be the largest in recent years. Basod on the present government crop report and carry-over there is practically 940,000,000 bushels, or about 60,000, 000 bushels more than last year. Should nothing happen to the spring wheat crop, which ia making good progress, and so far has not been seriously hurt by black rust, 25,000,- 000 bushels or 35,000,000 bushels might be added to the spring wheat estimate. In the August crop re turns as the basis for estimating the crop is advanced about two bushels for the month. , In 1015 when the United States raised 1,028,000,000 bushels of wheat there was 352,000,000 bushels spring and 674,000,000 bushels winter. The largest spring wheat crop ever raised was 356,000,000 bushels ' in 1918, when the winter wheat here was 553, 000,000 bushels and the total crop was 911,000,000 bushels. The govern- men report is a total of 854,000,000 bushels, or 22,000,000 bushels in ex cess of the previous harvest, with a carry-over of 85,000,000 bushels, or 25,000,000 bushels in excess of last year. ' .:".:. ' ' '..- y Canadian supplies might be raised over the present ' estimate, and Eur ope Is estimated to have. about 80, 000,000 bushels over last year. Est! mates on Argentina and Australia are too uncertain at ' present. It would be a good thing, however, for other exporting countries were the south ern hemisphere to have a short crop. What wheat prices are - to be in the future is a. problem confronting the trade. In Chicago there is a be lief that prices around $1.35 & 1.40 will be about right under exist ing conditions. Movement of wheat has been delay ed, and while it is a fair size in the southwest and only starting in the middle west, Chicago receivers are not expecting liberal receipts un til the last part of July or the fir&t half of August. The market has been fairly liquidated.

He has had two men employed to help him and is not yet half finished with the work.

The Americans indicated their will ingness to accept the first point and Intimated that arrangements might be made for the acceptance ot the second point, but deflntlo opposition was voiced to three other proposals.
