left Eugene Wednesday, on offiS of
the most extensive and expensive
trips ever undertaken by a Webfoot

Wheat Trend Upward
A fresh rise in wheat values late
Wednesday at Chicago, coincided with
a renewal of stock market rallies, and
with enlarged estimates of North
American wheat export business.
About 1,000,000 bushels of United
States hard winter wheat was said to
have been taken for shipment over
seas. Official reports indicated that
1931 northern hemisphere wheat pro
duction would be 100,000,000 bushels
short of 1930, exclusive of Russia and
China, and that the Russian crop was
also smaller despite increased acre

might apply for specific increases on
designated commodities upon certain
conditions. The special raises would
be conditional on submission and ap

Improvement of
Gulch Road Will
Go to Pine Creek
Work on the new grade of the
Athena-LaMar Gulch market road is
nearing completion, and within two
weeks surface graveling is expected
to begin.
Members of the county court and
the county roadmaster were in Athe
na Tuesday and went out to the Joe
Key place to investigate a rock de
posit, with tentative plans of select
ing it for the site of the rock crush
ing machinery. The rock crusher
and equipment now in use on the
new road leading south from Weston,
will be moved over to the LaMar con
struction. The Weston improvement
is nearing completion.
The LaMar road will extend further
than at first contemplated. Originally
the improvement was to end at the
school house at the intersection of
the east and west road, but later it
was decided, to extend the grading
and rock surfacing on north to the
M. L. Watts ranch on Pine Creek.
The new work begins in the north
east part of Athena, where the La
Mar road leaves the Union Pacific
This improvement has long been
needed, for during the winter months
a portion of the old, unimproved road
was practically impassable at times.
With a modern grade and rock sur
face, the road which carries consider
able farm traffic, will take rank with
other standard market roads of the
Athena High School
Loses to Heppner High
In a bitterly contested football
game on the home grounds Saturday
afternoon, Athena high school was
defeated by the heavier Heppner high
school team. Athena held their op
ponents scoreless through the first
Unable to accomplish anything
through the line, Athena early went
to the air. A number of beautiful
passes were completed, which several
times put the ball within scoring dis
tance, but always Heppner held in
the pinches.
After a hot razzing by the Heppner
coach, his men came back in the sec
ond period with determination to
score. After Pickett had been re
moved from the game on account of
his injured arm, and Lowell Jenkins
was temporarily on the bench, the
Heppner shock troops tore through
the Athena line for their first touch
down. Jenkins went back in, limping
on his crippled leg and pepped up the
team for the remainder of the period.
In the fourth period Pickett again
went in, but after a few plays both
he and Jenkins were forced to retire
on account of their injuries.
Heppner then turned loose again
and soon had two more touchdowns,
which with one extra point, placed
them in front, 19 to 0. Then they
rushed in a bunch of subs and Athe
na rapidly carried the ball within
scoring distance. Plunging along she
had the ball within inches of the goal
line when the gun barked out the
end of the game. Athena plays at
Touchet this afternoon.

Baby Chicks in Demand
Though it is October instead of
March, thousands of baby chicks are
still being shipped to growers from
Corvallis because of an unusual con
dition in the poultry market. It seems
that there is a real shortage in spring
fryers in the vicinity of the big cities
especially and right now poultry rais
ers near these consuming centers are
getting the baby chicks to force them
as rapidly as possible for the restau
rant and hotel trade later in the winter.

Sale of Wheat Is
Backed By Mill
ers of Northwest
Flour millers of the Pacific north
west who recently entered into an
agreement with the federal farm
board to convert 7,500,000 bushels of
wheat into flour to be sent to Chinese
flood sufferers, took steps Monday to
convince government officials that
they are satisfied in every way with
the arrangement made, says the
Morning Oregonian.
The matter was brought up by the
complaint of an exporter, which was
sent to Senator McNary and passed
on by the senator to the farm board.
This exporter, who is not a flour
miller, declared that the relief pro
gram has already caused a reduction
in prices and that the flour and wheat
sent to China are likely to be diverted
from the flood victims into regular
trade channels, which statements are
contradicted by George S. Milnor,
president of the Grain Stabilization
corporation, and James C. Stone,
chairman of the farm board.
After a conference of millers L. J.
Baumann of Seattle, president of the
North Pacific Millers' association,
sent this telegram to Mr. Milnor:
"In reference to a news article,
Washington, D. C, October 19 in
which it is alleged flour exporters on
the Pacific coast make complaint con
cerning the Chinese wheat and flour
relief matter, please be advised this
complaint did not emanate from any
export flour miller in the Pacific
northwest. Am wiring copies of this
telegram to Senators McNary and
"When it was first proposed that
the farm board sell a part of its
wheat holdings to the Chinese gov
ernment, half of the amount in flour,
for relief purposes, the flour millers
of the Pacific coast went whole-heartedly
into the matter," said A. M.
Scott, export manager of the Pills-bury-Astoria
Flour Mills company.
"We are satisfied in every way with
the treatment we have received from
the farm board officials."

Kidnapped by Bandits
Two daring robbers who held up a
Lewiston garage Wednesday, of last
week, kidnaped the attendant and es
caped, returned early Tuesday, held
up the same garage, kidnaped the
same man, held up another garage
and escaped under gun fire! Clarence
Grenalgh, who was kidnaped, said
the robbers threatened to kill him on
the other trip if he notified police be
fore morning. He spread an alarm as
soon as he was released. Fearing the
bandits might have carried out their
threat this time, one set of searchers
looked for his body while others in
Washington and North Idaho sought
the robbers.
La Grande Bandits Greatly
Hampered in Making Es
; cape By Air Force.
"An airplane was the biggest fac
tor in preventing Our escape from
the officers," declared Keith Cross
wyth, 20, and John Owens, 19, after
their capture between 10:30 and 11
o'clock Tuesday morning on a lone
ly road about six miles from Duncan,
by Gus Brashears Union county
sheriff, Frank Osmond of La Grande,
state police officer, and W. E. Car
penter of La Grande.
"We had to move cautiously, the
bandits stated, for if we were in the
open we were under constant obser
vation of those in the airplane. When
ever the plane would be sighted wo
would jump behind the nearest tree,
bush or log to hide ourselves. We
traveled both night and day, but
rested at intervals. The soaring of
the plane overhead greatly hampered
our movement during the day. We
were greatly confused in our direc
tions for we were unacquainted with
the country."
They slept in the brush Monday
night about six miles from Duncan.
They were warmly dressed and suf
fered no more from exposure than
members of the posse. The bandit3
were up early to begin their wander
ings, following the first road to be
found. While hiking down a narrow
road they chanced upon a camp of
Indian deer hunters, who shared their
breakfast with them. After break
fast they continued down the road
reaching its end at about 10 o'clock,
then they began retracing their route
unknowingly walking towards their "
The trio which captured the men
were climbing up a knoll on the road,
when they noticed their caps bobbing
along, and with rifles ready quickly
covered them. They had their pistols
in their holsters under their coats,
and were so taken by surprise that
they had no opportunity to draw their
"We had intended to shoot it out
with the posse, but we had no
chance," said Owens and Crosswyth.
Owens was equipped with two
Lugar automatic pistols, and had hol
low point soft nose bullets. Cross
wyth had a pistol of Spanish make,
a .30 caliber Bpecial. Hard nose bul
lets were used with the latter weapon.
The bandits related that they had
each shot twice at Amos Helm, state
policeman, but thought when he had
fallen that it was to seek cover, rath
er than as a result of injury. Helms
injuries are believed to have been
from the hard nosed bullets fired by
Crosswyth. Owens fired seven shots at
Captain Lee Noe of state police.

This Deer Wasn't Dead
The Weston Leader reports that
Frank Snider and George Otte were
hunting in the vicinity of Tollgate
Sunday and each succeeded in bring
ing down a buck. Mr. Otte shot his
deer in the head and it seemed to be
dead enough, so he cut its throat in
order that the blood would drain from
the body. "A pretty buck," he re
marked to his companion on comple
tion of this task. Just then the deer
jumped to its feet and hurtled off
through the brush with Otte in as-.
tonished pursuit. After a chase of
a quarter of a mile down into a deep
canyon the deer decided to depart
from this life for keeps. The two
hunters then had a most strenuous
job getting the buck out of the canyon.
