A very Interesting, entertaining and Instructive meeting of the Patron Teachers Association was held at the high Khool auditorium on Tuesday af ternoon, tho the attendance was not as large as It should have been. Mr. Heard presumed his subject, "Athletics and Physical Education" in ' a manner that was highly Instructive and showed that he was well equipped to handle a question of such import ance. All were well pleased with his talk. Prof. James had not announced particular subject for his talk, so he enlightened those present on what had been done In the school to date as per promises made, two Important mattes In particular having been accomplished Supervision of playgrounds and a su pervised lunch room were now set pol icies of the school and were being han 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. The fourth grade carried off the laurels for the best work In securing attendance and will get the picture for the coming month. It was held the past month and more by the fifth grade. The committee having the matter In charge was Instructed to get the tennis court at the school grounds in shape at once. A motion also prevailed that the Patron-Teacher Association entertain the high school and faculty In the near future, the honor guests to be the de lating and basket ball teams. The association recently made Im plements In the teachers' rest room at the school building, and in appreciation of this a vote of thanks was tendered the association at this meeting by the teachers of the school. Tho next regular meeting of the as sociation will be on Tuesday, April It This meeting Is of Importance as It Is the time for the nomination of officers for the coming year. It Is desired that there be a full attendance of members on this date. MEET AT ARLINGTON L. A. HUNT. , The Executive committee or tne in corporators of the Oregon Co-operative Grain Orowcrs met nt The nnllOB on March 5th and arranged to call the meeting for the election of temporary directors at Arlington, March 12th. This will be a general public meeting of ail the men who have so far signed the contracts and will be for the purpose of the election of the directors to serve Until the annual meeting In June and to discuss such other matters ns may come up at this meeting. In this meeting Morrow county will undoubtedly be entitled to two direct ors to serve during this time. The far mers are very much Interested In de veloping an aggressive campaign for membership and expect to see steps taken to this end at that time. So.far the Oregon Co-operative Grain Grow ers have secured as many members In the Ave weeks campaign which has Just closed as were secured In an entire year by the Washington organization last season. The figures have not yet been completely tabulated but from re ports that have been received to date there Is no reason to question that a good round two million bushels have been signed up, but should have eight million In Oregon by harvest. Morrow county has already passed the seven hundred thousand mark and so has Sherman county. The development of the sales agency for the four states at Spokane will come up for consideration. It Is very probable that the Oregon organisation will co-operate In this selling agency as this seems to be tho only logical way to handle the same. There Is nt the present time for handling In tills pool through this agency, twenty million bushels. An aggressive cnmpnlgn If put on will develop nt least another ten million, mnklng around thirty million by harvest. Every member of the As sociation will be enabled to step up on top of the fifteen cents differential be tween Portland and Chlcngo the dn that they lond the first ship for Europe. Everybody should get In as soon as possible. Ifrrmlaton Goes Down to Defeat.

An Appeal To Ibe Hrpabllraaa of the Cooatry aad All Taoae W ho Aided Thrall The Republican success in the 1920 election has been commensurate with the quality of our candidates and the righteousness of our cause. This success is the partnership accom plishment of nil Hepubllans every where and of hundreds of thousands of well-wishers of good government regardless of past party affiliations. To all of these we now appeal beause it Is the mutual responsibility of us all who will share alike in the conse quent mutual benefit of good govern ment. The plan of limiting campaign contri butions to $1,000, adopted by your na tional organisation, has left your par ty unmortgaged. It has been a most advanced step in placing the business of politics on the highest plane, and has brought an Interest on the part of thousands who never before have been concerned with politics. Some weeks before election It was ap parent that the expenses provided for In our budget, with the strictest economy, would exceed the contribu tions, but we were unwilling either to leave undone any legitimate effort essential to complete success or to change our method of raising money. We were then sure and we are now sure that every Republican desires that the expenses of the campaign be distributed In this manner. Tour presidential campaign this year cost no more than that of 1918, when a dollnr went nearly twice as far as It does today. Four years ago the bulk of the cam paign fund came from 750 contribut ors, while this year the approximate ly 12.000,000 contributed to date for the presidential election has come from 50,000 givers. The victory won, the raising of the deficit would be easy, indeed, If your committee were willing to abandon the policy of keeping down the aver age of contribution. This we are de termined not to do. It was a fight of all the people. The result speaks for Itself. It lifted a burden from the minds of millions and points the way to better and happier days. We ask now for that additional help from all which Is merited both by the success ful conclusion of the effort and by the consequent contribution to the wel fare, of all our people and the glor of the nation. Let us now have help from ever) American citizen who is grateful for the victory and all that It means to the country. It might well be In the nature of a thanksgiving offering for the return to a certainly safe, sane. constitutional progressive govern ment. Let us by general and generous giving set the seal of approval upon the pol Icy of putting a national admlnlstra lion In power free from any possible embarrassment of special obligation to nny man, men or group of men Let us make the contribution, wheth er large or small, and whether or not we have heretofore given, common surate with our means and our ap preciation, always within (he maxl. mum limit heretofore fixed. Let us get our names on the corner. stone of a sturdier political structure upon the roll of those who have help ed mnke possible a campaign of which. In methods and result, we may as Republicans and patriots he Just ly proud. Most earnestly we urge that this aid be given quickly, that your committee be enabled to discharge the party's ob ligations nnd turn to further con structive work In behnlf of party and country.

THE NEW si lira PLEADS SENATOR M'NARY Wants Them Protected from Fires to Preserve Them foe New (iraeratlon. 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 says: "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 this Republic. "I am for protection, and have al ways been. I was for protection whb' tho prime object of protection was to protect Infant Industries of this great country, In order that they might build up and become powerful Industries; nnd I am consistent today, and I am for protection when thnt protection Is need ed by tho producers of the West and Middle West.

Mas; Matters Before Meeting at Portlaa-i Thin Week. 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 the Junction. 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 In executive session. So many new sug gestlons have been presented in tht way of road projects that the commis sion will soon make a personal Inspec tion of the situation In several parts of the state. Eastern and Central Or egon will be visited and so will the Wil lamette valley. The East Oregonlan of Pendleton Is sued a fine automobile edition on Tues day. The big show Is on in Tendleton this week. Heppner Chapter No. 26, R. A. M., Is planning a big time for next Tuesday evening when a number of candidates will receive the degrees. The work of the order will be followed by a ban quet at the hotel, according to present plans. Some wheat has Keen changing hands this week at Heppner at a price not very flattering to the farmer. It has come to a point with many farmers. however, where they are compelled to let some of their rfheat go and realize a little cash. Mr. Clifford H. Esselstyn, manager of tho Tum-A-Lum Lumber Co., at Lexlng on, was married to Miss Clydie Hale at be home of Mr. and Mrs. W. W. Essel s'yn in Echo on last Saturday evening. Rev. E. L.

The last number of the lyceum course was given at the Star theater on Friday evening In a splendid entertainment by Roselth Knapp Breed. The pro gram was largely of a humorous na ture, ns Miss Breed Is noted along this line, and we feci safe In saying that It was a little the best number of the course.

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, Howell, McPuffee, Ferguson nnd Chid ey, Heppner has been a winner fn all contests in the association nnd we be lieve tho boys will make further win nings at Salem, thus putting our town and school on the map In fine style.

Lime-sulphur spray is recommended to prune growers who have suffered from attacks of the peach and prune twig miner. The spray should be used at a dilution of 12 gallons of lime-sulphur to 100 gallons of water. This spray should be applied during a per iod of settled weather and previous to opening of the buds. When rightly used little or no Injury by twig miners will occur. O. A. C. Experiment Sta tion. Cauliflower plants are often Injured by frost if set out too early. This has tendency to check growth and cause the plant to produce a small cauliflow er head, often no larger than a carna tion. It is best to wait until the weath er is more settled before the plants are field set. The most valuable cauli flower crop is usually grown In late summer or fall, the seed being sown In May, transplanted In late June, and the crop maturing in October or November. O. A. C. Experiment Station. Two things should be determined In the first spring examination of the bee hive which should be made In the first part of March. First, that the bees have a laying queen which is deter mined by looking for brood, and sec of honey to last them. The examina of honey to last them. Thee xamina- tlon should be held in the middle of the day when the bees are flying. Etomol- ogy, O. A. C. 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 are unfamiliar with the lare amount of feed that may be produced with bar Icy. The Willamette valley has never produced as much barley as It con sumes, due probably to this fact. Kutertaln Debating Tram at lllnner. Prof, and Mrs. Howard M. James en tertained Messrs.
