"GYPSY HER" PLEASED
BIG AUDIENCE AT STAR
HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS
Cant Put Play Over In The
Absence of the Director Who
the Heppner high
with glory last Tuesday evening in
their splendid presentation of the
"Gypsy Rover," a romantic musical
comedy in three acts.
Star Theatre, where the play was
given, was crowded to capacity with
relatives and friends of the young
performers and the house was com- !
fortably filled at the matinee. High i
prainse of the entertainment was
heard oni every hand. 1
The young perfomers had been
caerfully trained for the occasion for
several weeks by Mrs. Bernice Dafoe
Hopper, instructor In music In the
high school and when she collared
from overwork two days before the
date set, the play was called off, but
later the students Interested called a
meeting and decided to go ahead
with the performance as originally
planned. The success achieved re
flected credit not only on the
thorough training they had received
but also on their own self confidence
Alvin, Boyd took the title role in
the play and carried his part off with 1
honors. Velma Case, as Lady Con-1
stance, English society e-irl In thoi
part of leading lady was in fine voice
and, always a favorite annong the
soloists in Heppner, she delighted the
audience. Paul Aiken, as Sinfo,
gypsy lover of Zara, (Coramae Craw
ford) belle of the gypsy camp, show
ed a splendid voice which is rapidly
winning a place for him as afavorite
local entertainer and the parts of
these two won plenty of applause.
Leola Bennett, as "Meg," an old
gypsy woman, and Dorothy Hill as
"Nina," sister of Lady Constance, are
both sweet singers and local favor
ites. Allen Case, as "Lord Craven,"
made the typical English Fop, being
equipped with a set of real, home
grown "sideburns" which he has'been
fostering for several weeks; and
Jim Clabaugh took off the part of
Sii) James Martengale as perfectly as
enough he had been
"to the manner I
born," on the "ritht little iht I
little isle," 50 or 60 years ago Don i
Case made a very distinguished look- i
ing English army officer Carl Casom '
was the real thing as a social lion
while Ray McDuffee filled the bill as
an English song publisher and busi
ness man and Kyle .Cox, as Marto,
was some qypsy man.
Among the special numbers be
tween acts none was more charming
than the flower dance by little Miss
Bettie Irwin and the Piemv rhor,,
by the young ladies taking part in-
me piay, made a great hit. Lovers
ot classical music were enraptured
with the rendition by Miss Mary
Clark of Chopin's Troiseme Ballade
following the second act. Miss 1
Clark is istudyin.g music at Walla
walla this winter and was home lor
the Easter vacation.
Miss Violet Merritt gave the read 1
Ing, "The Debutante," in a manner
that would have done great credit
to many professionals, her (selection
being one of the very best features
of the evening and the full1 chorus j
of 20 voices rendered the- Glow
Worm most charmingly.

SHEARING IS DELAYED BY CON
TROVERSY WITH SHEARERS
Sheep shearing Is being delayed by
a controversy between the sheepmen
and shearers over the price of shear
ing and other matters.
At a meeting held last January
when President McClennon, of the
Shearers' union was present, the
matter of wages was discussed and,
at Mr. McClennon's suggestion i' a
price of ten cents per head was
agreed upon as a fair price for the
present season. It seems, however,
that the men now take a
vjew 0f the situation and are demand-1
iDg 12 cents on the ground that wool !
and sheep prices have advanced since 1
January while 'there has been no
material change in the things they
have to buy. Just how the matter
will be 'settled is still a question but
it was reported yesterday that shear-
ers will be brought in

As sometimes happens to the best
of them, Heppner showed several
weak spots in the opening cantos.
Broughton was not in his bortt form
and the team failed with the support;
he needed. The visitors promptly
glommed two scores in the first and
the home team failed to tally. Inj
the second it was a massacre. Tha
Round-Uppers nailed six bully boys!
on the bani door and never batted an,
eye. It was like shell shock in tlui
trenches for the Heppner fans when!
again 'their team, failed to function,
but. when the third canto closed wltli
a goose egg tin they began to revive.,

down and Heppner picked up their,
