THE GAZETTE-HUES, HEPPNER, OREGON, THURSDAY. MAY 4, 1022.
J. W. Morrow, of the Union Pacific
oilicfcs in Portland, visited in Hepp
ner several days this week, looking
after business affairs here. Asked
concerning the political situation,
pertaining to the governorship, Mr.
Morrow, who takes a keen interest
always in matters political, having
formed the habit early in his career
in Morrow county, thinks that Gover
nor Ben Olcott stands the best chance
to win out for the nomination, his
closest competitor being I. L. Patter
son of Polk county. Mr. Morrow had
nothing to say regarding the candi
dates on the democratic ticket, ap
parently believing that they stand lit
tle show of success in the finals, and
being a democrat, he no doubt thinks
more of "Our Ben" than of the other
The Cohn Auto Co. has secured
the local agency for the Kohler Light
plant, and have one of the little ma
chines on exhibition in their window
at the garage. It is a marvel of per
fection and a great light producer,
and is attracting much attention. This
machine should prove to be a fine in
vestment in electric lighting for pri
vate dwellings and for houses and
bains on the farms.
Mrs Mary Gorman and son, Law
rence Perry, spent a couple of days
in Heppner at the end of the week.

where Mrs. Eskelson is geting set
tled, but city life has no charm for
Ben Moore departed on Sunday for .
Hot Lake, Ore., where he expects j
to remain for some time, receiving
treatments. Ben has been in a rather ;
bad condition, physically for months,:
his trouble no doubt being the out- j
growth of the strenuous duties he;
was called on to face while in the !
service in France.
Mr. and Mrs. Chester Darbee and
their daughter, Miss Gwendolyn, are
leaving this week on an extensive
visit to the old home of Mr. Darbee
near New York city. They expect to

1ARTHA BY THE DAY"
ON FRIDAY, MAY 12TH
An optimistic comedy in three acts
by Julie M. Lippman, author of the
"Martha" stories, will be given by
the junior and senior classes at the
high school auditorium Friday eve
ning, May 12.
It is altogether a gentle thing, this
play. It is full of quaint humor, old
fashioned, homely sentiment, the
kind that people who see the play
will recall and chuckle over tomor
row and the next day.
Miss Lippmann has herself adapt
ed her very successful book for
stage service, and in doing this has
selected from her novel the most
telling incidents, infectious comedy,
and homely sentiment for the play,
and the result is thoroughly delight

The baseball game played here be
tween Heppner High Independents
and lone high school ended with a
score of 5 to 6 in favor of the home
team. Although all our boys played
good ball, the work of Witcraft, pitch
er, and Clabough, catcher, is especial
ly to be commended.
The freshman class with their ad
visor went up the creek for a picnic
Wednesday after school. From all
the noise heard from the different
members the next day, we have
about decided that they nad as gooj
a time as the rest of us.
Last Tuesday morning students
who were startled by weird sounds
issuing from the music room, were
highly pleased, and listened eagerly,
when Mr. James explained that Mr.
Heard was going to play the piano
and the physics class would sing. But
we were doomed to disappointment,
for they were only having a lesson
The sophomore class, thinking it
was about time they were having
their' good times, went up Willow
creek cn a picnic Thursday, April
27. They thought the ordinary
games were too common, so they had
a tree-climbing contest, and since
they were all such good climbers it
a.- hard to tell which one was best.
As weenies are characteristic of most
of our picnics, they had weenies and
other good eats. They all say the
usual thing, "Had a dandy time."
Picnics are still the "go" the
"poor little freshies" having planned
a picnic for one of their events this
week. When asked why the seniors
didn't go on a picnic we were told,
"Well, they can't all agree on going;
where they will go, and when they
jwill go. Now you have the whole
I thing in a nut shell.
Mr. Heard was out of town Fri-
. day, April 30, on business. The stu
U'ents in his classes were dismissed
' as soon as their other classes were
jcver. Most of them think they can
'study better af;ei their short vaca
From the number of committee
meetings and junior conferences
with teachers, chefs, and clerks, we
have about fooled the seniors into be
lieving that they are going to be
guests at a rare banquet.
Last Monday Mrs. Hopper return
ed to school after two weeks' ab
sence, because of illness. We were
all very glad to see her back again.
The domestic science department
after this week is going to discon
tinue serving soup and those having
tickets for more days will have their
money refunded. There are so few
taking soup, it was thought unnec
essary to serve it.
Hello Everybody! I am Flicker,
and, of course, you will want to come
and see me perform on May 12 in
the high school play, "Martha By-the-Day."
Martha says that I'm a
pedigreed dog out of the Gutter and
sired by Kicks. Even at that I'm not
full-blooded, but I will be when Mar
tha gets me fed up. I sure led a
dog's life until Martha took me in,
but I'm on . easy street now and if
you want to see what a dog does
when hes on easy street just come
and see me in "Martha By-the-Day."
Truthfully yours FLICKER.
