large as It should have been.
Mr. Heard presumed his subject,
"Athletics and Physical Education" in

and showed that he was well equipped
to handle a question of such import
ance. All were well pleased with his

died efficiently by the splendid coop
eration of the grade and high school
teachers. The promised cafeteria ser
vice planned for the winter months had
not been carried out owing to the mild
ness of the weather, and other hoped
for betterments about the school would
a-radually be provided as time and
means permitted. The talk of Prof.
James was greatly enjoyed.
Entertainment features were a piano
solo by Vivian James, Instrumental
solo by Hernlce Woodson, duet by Mian
Dafoe and Miss Norrls.

In this meeting Morrow county will

taken to this end at that time. So.far
the Oregon Co-operative Grain Grow

PLEADS SENATOR M'NARY
Wants Them Protected from Fires to
Preserve Them foe New
Washington, March 9. Senator Mc-
Nary, of Oregon, has voiced a plea for
the preservation of the great forests
of the country by fire protection. He
"We have used up three-fourths of
our original forests, and the supply of
timber remaining is becoming less and
less adequate for the requirements of
the country, both in quantity and in
location. Sixty-one per cent of what
Is left lies west of the Great Plains,
whereas the bulk of lumber and paper
consumption is east of the Great riaina.
Over 50 percent of the standing timber
today is found in the three Pacific
Coast States and 61 per cent is found in
that great western country lying west
of the Mississippi river. Our eastern
forested states one after another have
been cut out, and ceased to be import
ant producers of timber because their
virgin forests have been but very par
tially and inadequately replaced by sec
ond growth after logging. With the
exhaustion of these old sources of lum
ber, paper and other forest products
and with the Increasing distance which
lumber must be hauled from tho saw-
ill to the consumer, much of It now
across the width of the continent, there
is a growing scarcity of forest products.
which In no great length of time will
become critical. MarketB may fluctuate
one way or another owing to financial
and other temporary conditions, but be
hind It lies a steady decrease In the
supply of timber, which has a very vi
tal bearing upon our national housing
situation, our national paper situation
and many Industries which use lumber
in manufactures; and I might say that
the statistics show that one In every
twenty persons In this oountry finds his
livelihood In occupations directly con
nected with lumbering or in industries
that arc associated therewith.
The greatest cause of this situation
Is forest fires. We have enough land
unfit for agriculture to grow all tho
timber which this country requires."
Farmers Seed Tariff.
Washington, March 9. llepresenta-1
tlve Tincher, of Kansas, is for a tariff
on farm products, and is for it strong.
He says: I
"At the end of eight years in which
the policies of the parly to which bo-
longs the gentleman who has Just pre
ceded mo concerning tariff have been
in vogue, we find the producing inter
ests of the country in the most deplor
able condition experienced in nil time
If there ever was a necessity for a tar
iff to protect the producer, it is now. Tf
there ever was a tariff bill offered to
tho country that had for Its prime ob
ject tho protection of the producers of
the country, It Is the emergency bill.
I challenge any man to call attention
to the time when any bill was ever
pending In the American Congress per
taining to tho tariff that gave to the
producer the protection that this bill
does or which had that purpose for its
object. And I say that the Industry in
which the people who are feeding the
world today are engnged Is In the worst
condition ever known in the history of
"I am for protection, and have al
ways been. I was for protection whb'
tho prime object of protection was to

County Judge Campbell In company
with K. J. Carsner of Spray and Kenny
Warner of Pilot Rock, left Heppner for
Portland Sunday morning to be present
at tho meeting of the State Hiiipway
Commission in that city on Tuesday.
Commissioner Barratt was also a mem
ber of the party.
Mr. Warner came to Heppner Satur
day evening to confer with our busi
ness men regarding the completion of
the Oregon-Washington Highway from
this city to the Umatilla county line, as
well as getting It on through to Hepp
ner Junction. Mr. Warner states that
Umatilla county plans to complete its
portion of this highway this Bummer
to the Morrow county line and of course
they are anxious to connect up with a
completed road on through Heppner to
Mr. Warner learned that our county
had set aside $40,000 for the Hintnn
creek section of this highway, but the
bonds could not be disposed of and
there was no money to go ahead with.
It was therefore decided that this would
be one matter to take up with the com
mission, as well as the further propo
sition of getting the gap closed be
tween Heppner and Lexington.
These matters, among others were
presented to the commission on Tues
day, and so far that body has acted on
none favorably except the Hinton creek
road. There is some six miles of this
road ready to be macadamized, and the
commission agreed to let the county
have the money to do this, taking the
bonds of the county as security. This
will be up to the amount of 140,000.
The commission decided against add
ing any more roads to the state high
way map, Commissioners Teon and
Barratt agreeing that they were
against such additions. This is neces
sary because of lack of funds.
There is a great amount of work up
before the commission to be disposed
of and many delegations were present
from over the' state at Tuesday's meet
ing, and much of the matters laid be
fore them will have to be disposed of

BASKET BALL TEAM OFF
FOR SALEM WEDNESDAY
The Heppner high school triumphant
basketball quintet took a hike (or Sa
lem Wednesday morning to take part
in the events of the state tournament
there the remainder of the week. They
were in charge of their coach, Prof.
Heard, and left the city in the finest of
trim, fully confident that they would
be winners in the tournament finals.
It was thought at first that the Hepp
ner -boys would not pet to go, as there
seemed to be some question regarding
their standing. Word received from
Salem Tuesday morning settled the
question. Hoppner was to represent
the district between Hood River and
Pendleton, and then the question was
to get the boys down to the capital city.
Salem would take care of the fare one
way but the boys did not have the
necessary to pay the other half. This
was soon settled when the matter was
put before tho business men of the city
and the cash provided. The hoys going
to Salem were Peterson, Aiken, Young,

Each number of the program was
well rendered and we should not show
partiality In making special reference
to any. Tet we cannot refrain from
speaking especially of the performance
of the little folks. Betty Irwin shouH
be handed the big bouquet as she did
her Spring dance in a wonderfully de
lightful manner. Eleanor Cohn and
Patricia Mahoney were also leading at
tractions and entitled to much praise
The Rosebuds did not fail to make
the promised hit and their next ap
pearance In Heppner will be awaited
with pleasurable anticipation. While
Mrs. Cochran, who Is not quite as nim
ble as she used to be, was a scream In
her part and brought down the house
with a roar.
The entertainment was unique In
many respects and of a high order all
through. The ladies had prepared an
abundance of homemade candles also,
and following the program these ware
disposed of and a handsome sum real
ized. Following this was a Jitney dance
which lasted for a short time and was
enjoyed by those participating.
The financial results were Just as
flattering to the ladies as was the en
tertainment to the public, and nearly
1300 was realized. This money Is to be
used In equlping the kitchen and din

by frost if set out too early. This has
tendency to check growth and cause
the plant to produce a small cauliflow

field set. The most valuable cauli

summer or fall, the seed being sown In
May, transplanted In late June, and the
crop maturing in October or November.

Hannchen barley for a number of
years has been trlving the best results
at the O. A. C. experiment station,
where seed is available. Many people

produced as much barley as It con
