Cause of Death Attributed
to Heart Failure Found
by Millard Kelly.
I Reed Hill, well known Athena resi
i dent, died Saturday forenoon in the
mountains near Dale in the ' south
f part of the TiOunty, while on a hunt-
- ing , trip. Heart -. failure was'1 the
cause of death, Mr. Hill having been
:" afflicted with heart disease in mild
; form for sometime past. - " ,'
In company with Millard Kelly,
f Hill left camp and the two men walk
- ed about three miles to a ridge where
l Kelly intended to hunt deer for the
5 day. -Arriving on top of the ridge,
Mr. Hill saw a deer at some distance
i and started through the brush to get
closer range. V After . he separated
from " Kelly the latter . waited for
I some time expecting to hear Hill
shoot. '' ' " . ' ' '
The deer remained in its position,
i and finally Kelly decided to go into
the brush and shoot it if Reed had
not fired in the meantime. Walking
slowly and quietly for some distance,
Kelly was shocked to see Mr. Hill
lying on the ground dead, in front of
him. ' . ' '' .
i s Kelly at once went to . a forest
: ranger, and E. C. Rogers was notified
,of the death shortly, afternoon, the
message coming by telephone through
1 the Ukiah office. ; f -J .
The forest ranger and a ; stock
; range rider greatly assisted Mr.
Kelly in his deplorable situation.
k Kelly remained near the body alone
t until ten o'clock Saturday night,
keeping a fire going on the hillside to
guide the forester and range rider to
i the spot. They came in with a Ford
'i car and the body was removed down
I the roadless ridge to a point where
I it intersected a forest road and on to
I Ukiah where the body was ; taken
r, -charge of by an undertaker and later
t brought out to Pendleton, front where
4 funeral arrangements were made; .
. Robert McArthur Was a third mem-
ber of the hunting party but was in
camp when his two friends were
V hunting.

v. S, 1867. With his parents he came
: to Oregon in 1872 and lived near and
V; in Athena during his lifetime. He

Iocal Woman Owns Several
Hundred Acres of Land '
Weiser, Idaho, people are elated
oyer- the recent coming in of .a gas
well with the tremendous, flow of 35,-

national advertising as a result of
the big ".- f'w. and a local woman,
Mrs. William J rppr, at present living
in Walla Walla, is the owner of sev
eral hundred acres of land adjacent
to the well.
The gas flow was struck east of
Weiser eight miles, and the company
is now drilling a well west1 of the
town at Indian Head. According to
the geological survey, Indian Head is
near the cer.ter of an oil dome, and
it is near Indian Head where Mrs.
Piper's land is located,
There are oil indications on the
Piper land and MrS. Piper made two
trips to her holdings there the past

the possibility of large petroleum
deposits that led the operating com

Grants Pass. Plunging 200 feet to
her death was the fate of Leta Wish
man, high school senior here Tues
day as she was in the act of taking a

miles down Rogue River. Her torn

mentarily on the brink of the canyon
where a vantage point for taking pic
tures was found. Then come a scream
and tho girls' companions looked
back to see her slide over the first
ledge of) the cliff, strike on the rough
ground, then roll down upon the rocks
below to be lost to sight.

the rapids below, but he was unable
to reach the scene at once. Half an
hour later the body was recovered

from the fall upon the rocks rather
than drowning. He announced an in

Metschan Upholds State
Committee In His Speech
LaGrande. Phil Metschan, republi
can nominee for governor, lashed
back at Julius L. Meier's charges at
a luncheon here attended by more
than 200 Union county - residents,
classing criticism of the honesty-of
the state central committee nomma
tion of him as "flimsy" and defying
opponents to show one single case
where industry has moved to Tacome
or Seattle from Portland due to
power conditions.
In connection . with the state cen
tral committee's actions, Metschan
stated that at the time of Senator
George W. Joseph's deah, 29 coun
ties had already elected or - called
their meeting to elect state commit
teemen. In the remaining seven,-as
state chairman and on advice from
the several counties, he named tem
porary chairman as recommended to
call or organize county committees.
In answer to charges that the cen
tral committee "had it in their
pockets' before they met, Metschan
reviewed each county, and claimed
that five of the seven delegates elect
ed in those counties organized under
his temporary appointments never
did vote for him in the convention
nomination, notably Coos county and
others. ' He denied that the commit
tee was "stacked" with his relatives.
Touching upon power, he said that
politics are apt to creep into the
larger cities of Oregon when munici
pal ownership is involved, citing the
government control of the railroads
during the war as one instance of in
efficiency. - - - -"-

The total number of fires was 877,
the lowest in 10 years except 1927.
Only 185 fires covered more than 19
The only disastrous fire in green
timber occurred in Deschutes county
burning over 6000 acres of mer
chantable yellow pine. This fire kill
ed 40.000,000 feet of timber, though
it is said a large part of this can be
saved if logged within a short time.
The loss in logging equipment was
also low, less than $30,000 against
$955,388 in 1929.
Most of the fires were caused by
lightning. Incendiarism ranked first
among the man-made causes Jack
