First Meeting of Season Held Satur
day Evening Then U Lively Dis
caealon of Pending Mesearea, Alio
Market Road Completion.
The first meeting of the season of
the Alpine Farm Bureau wai held in
the schoolhouse on lait Saturday
evening, and wi quite well attended
by the people of the community, both
men and women. County Agent Cal
kina wai also present and took a live
ly part in the proceedings. A mem
br of the G.-T. staff accompanied him
and was atso pressed in for some of
the talk.
The program was arranged mainly
by E. E. Cherlck, teacher of the Al
pine school, who, by the way, we men
tioned In last issue as being principal
of the Pine City school, an error for
which we apologise. It being near to
election time, the measures that will
appear on the ballot seemed appro
priate for discussion, and each one of
these waa handled in a pretty thoro
manner; aingle tax, income tax,
school bill and all received their just
proportion of attention and there was
some pretty lively talk before all had
their say, but the ladies present could
not be pressed in. They had come to
serve refreshments of cske, sand
wiches and coffee, and this waa done
at the close of the meeting to the
complete satisfaction of everyone.
After closing the discussion on the
measures, the question of completion
of the Lexlngton-Jarmon market road
was taken up. The people out that
way are very anxious that this be
done just as aoon as possible, and in
order to get a thorough understand
ing of the present status of the pro
gram as it pertains to this road, a
committee was appointed to come to
Heppner on Wednesday for the pur
pose of going over the mstter with
judge Campbell. It is realised that
there Is at present a lack of funds,
but there are some promises standing
out that the Alpine folks would like
to see efforts made to fulfill.
C. D. Morey was the presiding offi
cer at the meeting, and he also took
part In the discussion of tho various
questions in an able manner. While
the great questions if not fully
settled, there was a disposition on the
part of each to get at the real facts,
in order to vote the more Intelligently
at the coming election. The Alpine
Farm Bureau is quite alive, and they
expect to hold a number of similar
meetings during the fall and winUr
The paper man noted that there was
a Am feeling existing hi the m
munity, backed by a spirit of coop
eration. The farmers were also re
joicing over the big rain and were all
busy with their seeding.
Miss Ada East is now the sixth
grade teacher. This grade was left
without a teacher when Mrs. Ed Clark
took the second grade. Miss Fahy, who
formerly taught the second grade, is
teaching one division of the first
grade. ..
Clyde Wltcraff who has been pro
minent in high school activtiies
has been forced to quit school.
Francis Doherty, Ruby Thornberg,
and Keith Logan are three new en
trants in high school this week.
Anyone might think the high school
had turned into a hospital ward to
see the bandaged members of the foot
ball team after the first few weeks
of practice. However, our boys don't
mind little things like that i( they
can help our team.
A practice football game waa played
October 6 between the high school
and the town teams. The Student
Body was supposed to practice their
yells at this game, but the cold wind
at the athletic field must have frosen
their vocal cords; at least they were
not much used.
" The following people are the mem
bers of the "Hehisch" staff for the
year 1922-23:
Editor-in chief Reliance Moore.

The Student Body of the high
school have voted to frame a new con
stitution. The old one has been out
grown and is no longer applicable to
high school activities.
Physical training is now being giv
en in the three upper grades as well
as the high school. The girls are dir
ected by Miss Turner and Misa Kast
and the boys by Mr. Finch.
Next Saturday, October 14, the H.
H. 8. football team will play a game
at Arlington. Everyone who can pos
sibly go is urged to do so and back
up the team.
"What are modern styles coming
to when they allow people to appear
in stockings which do not match each
other," was the exclamation of some
citliens of Heppner on Monday, Oct.
2. But let us explain. Monday tho
Juniors were observing the time-honored
custom of Junior Loud Socks
Day in fitting style.
An electric gong has been Installed
in the school, being operated in the
eighth grade room. It is used for .the
grades, the old gong being used only
for fire drills. A bell has also been
put up for the use of the school.
The sophomoros met at the home of
Miss Luola Benge Monday, October
8th, for a social time. The other
classes could not understand the si
lence observed in regard to the party
until Tuesday morning.. Then the
Sophomores appeared in all the glory
of arm-bands of their class colors
made from their old pennant. Some
of the said arm-bands mysteriously
disappeared on the way to school, but
some of the more valiant members of
the class of '25 were able to keep
their banda throughout the day.
Mr. Gilman Found
Abundant Fruit Crops
Recently D. E. Gilman, aceompained
by Dan Barlow, made a trip over into
the Washington country, going almost
as far north aa the boundary Una.
Going from Heppner to Arlington,
where he waa aceompained by Mrs.
Gilman who was on her way to attend
the national convention of the W. R.
C. at Des Moines, Iowa, and took the
train for the east at that point, the
gentlemen proceeded down over the
Columbia Highway to Portland, cross
ed over at Vancouver and proceeded
up the north bank of the Columbia,
stopping the first night at Home Val
ley, near Carson. They erossed over
the mountains here to Goldendale,
where, by the way, Mr. Gilman noted
that very short grain erops were the
portion of the farmers of the Klick
itat Valley for thia season; going on
through the Yakima Valley, the se
cond camp waa at Blewett Pass, and
then the journey led on to Wenatchee,
Lake ..Chelan .and Okanogan City
where a nice visit was had with Frank
Farnsworth and family, and this was
followed by a run through River
side and on to Tonasket and Oraville,
and back to Okanogan for the night,
leaving on the return journey at 5:00
o.clock the next morning, Yakima was
reached that evening and the next day
back to Heppner. The distance on the
trip was 1150 miles, made in the Gil
man Overland, Gene says, on 18 miles
to the gallon of gasoline.
From Yakima to Wenatchee, the
route traveled, it is almost one con
tinuous apple orchard, and the erops
this season are very abundant. Yaki
ma will ahlp 80,000 cars of apples,
and yet Mr. Gilman was informed that
the producers will make no profit this
year on their abundant crop, though
they do expect to break even. He
found money no easier there than
here, and there was Just as much or
more complaint concerning bard
Republican State Commit
tee Is In Need of Funds
The appesl is coming out from Re
publican state headquarters for funds
to carry on the campaign. No targe
sums are requested, but donations
from tl up can be used to good ad
vantage by the state committee in
their battle to elect the republican
nominees. All good republicans of the
county are asked to respond to this
appeal by forwarding their contribu

surer Morrow County Central Com

C. L. SWEEK, County Chairman.
Certification of grain fields for the
purpose of locating pure stands to
serve as a supply, took up a part of
the plan of the county agents in twen
ty counties, during July and August.
The field inspections were made by E.
R. Jackman, Crop Specialist, and Prof.
G. R, Hyslop. No attempt was made
to certify large acreages, the idea be
ing, on the other hand, to locate a
source of satisfactory seed of each of
the best varieties in as many commu
nities of the state aa possible. The
largest acreage certified was in Uma
tilla county, where 13,233 acres pass
ed. In Morrow county 5,180 paased.
Most attention was given to certifica
tion of Turkey Red, as every effort it
being made to establish this wheat in
those districts adapted to its culture.
Over 9,000 acres were certified. Hard
Federation constituted the largest
acreage of spring wheat certified.
This is one of the new wheats devel
oped by the Morro Station, procured
originally from Australia. It is a re
markably high yielding wheat for the
dry lands of Eastern Oregon, and it
has done particularly well in Wasco,
Morrow and Umatilla counties. Fed
eration, a somewhat similar wheat,
was certified in Lake, Union, and Mal
heur counties. This is the highest
spring wheat under irrigation grown
in recent years In Eastern Oregon
counties, with the exception of Mal
heur. In Malheur county it has not
yet demonstrated its superiority over
Dicklow. The counties and acreages
are as follows:

Brotherhood Holda Regular Meeting
Monday Evening and Many Argu
ments for Advertising Oregon Ad
vanced. That Oregon should advertise ber
scenic beautiea and thereby bring
into the state many new and desirable
settlers, was the conclusion reached
at the Brotherhood meeting Monday
evening. In the absence of the sched
uled leadera in the discussion Chair
man Waters called upon many of the
men present and a variety of ideas
were expressed aa to how the adver
tising should be done, and what re
sults could be looked for.
C. C. Calkins handled the subject
from the angle of the 1925, or 192T
fair in Portland, the substance of hia
remarks being that the fair, because
of its Immense expense and the doubt
ful results to be obtained, is a form
of advertising that should be dis
couraged. S. E. Notson dwelt upon
some of Oregon's scenic wonders and
said that the folka here had become
so used to them that they failed to
appreciate them properly. He advanc
ed the theory that Oregon people
themselves should become more fam
iliar with and more appreciative of
our beauty spots and thereby be en
abled to boost them more thoroughly
and intelligently.
That the fine roads and other at
tractions of the state are more for
Oregon people than for the fast mov
ing tourist, was expressed by Pro. E.
H. Hedrick, who said he seriously
doubted if the tourist left enough be
hind him to more than pay for the
wear and tear of the roads over
which he traveled. This speaker be
lieved, however, that our scenery
should be advertised providing it can
be done at no great cost Somewhat
opposed to this idea was that advanc
ed by Roy Pickens, who maintained
that advertising the state was and
should be made a paying matter and
that if properly done would mean
wonderful returns to the state.
Talks were made by Harvey Launtx,
S. A. Pattison, Rev. J. R. L. Haslam,
Spencer Crawford and Gay M. Ander
son, all along the line of favoring
the exploitation of our attractions,
and each incidentally putting in an
objection to the big Portland fair.
But to keep the meeting from being
monotonous in its exprssion, Charlea
Thomson spoke quite spiritedly in
favor of the fair, saying that it
would prove a winner and would more
than justify its cost. He maintained
that while people of the world might
be hard uty they all have money with
wmen to nave a gooa urns, ana wouia
be in Portland in throngs, and it was
his contention that a great part of
those throngs would be Induced to
not only travel over the state, but a
large part of them would remain with
us and make this their permanent
Very pleasant features of the pro
gram were the songs by Mrs. C. Dar
bee and the readings by Miss Osea
Gray, which were highly appreciated.
A vote of thanks was extended them,
and also to the hotel management for
the splendid luncheon which was pre
pared. The next meeting or the Brother
hood will be held on November 13,
and a strong membership campaign
will be put over In order to increase
the attendance at least 100 per cent
For this purpose a committee con
sisting of C. C. Calkins, P. M. Gem-
mel and Frank Turner was appointed.
Clinic Will Be Held At

Wm. Davidson and family were in
the city from their farm southwest of

neighbor, Gus Liebl. Mr. Davidson
recently returned from a trip to his
old home state, California, where a
bout San Francisco, he found condi
tions much as they are here, but in
the Sacramento Valley, the rice pro
ducing section, the people are not do
ing well, owing to failures of the
crop. Mr. Davidson is quite content
with his situation in this county.

Henry J. Taylor, pioneer wheat
grower and farmer of Umatilla coun
ty, whose home Is at Pendleton, was
in Heppner over Tuesday night, and
remained here for a short time on
Wednesday forenoon, meeting his old
acquaintances and friends and mak
ing new ones. His visit to Morrow
county at thia time was in behalf of
hia candidacy for joint senator of
Morrow, Umatilla and Union counties,
he being the nominee of the Demo
cratic party for that office.
Mr. Taylor was aceompained by W.
J. Wattenburger of Echo, who while
being a Republican of long standing,
says that he will support Mr. Taylor
because of his firm Btand on the tax
ation question . Mr. Taylor stands
high in businesa and fraternal circles
at Pendleton and is considered a very
solid and substantial gentleman. He
has been on the retired list, largely,
for a number of years past, so far as
running the farm ia concerned, yet he
ia active in business affairs in Pend

Work of Bonus Board
Is Now Cleaned Up
The Morrow eounty appraisers of
the state bonus commission have
cleaned np all the business before
them, so we are informed by 8. E.
Notson. The board of appraisers for
thia eounty consisted, of Mr. Notson,
Frank Gilliam and Judge W. T. Camp
bell, and with the few appraisals
made during the past week, all the
work before them in this county has
been (completed.
Mr. Notson further states that
practically every application acted
upon in the eounty has been allowed
by the commission, and the local
board has performed its work on a
basis of charging np to the applicants
their actual expense only, though the
lavi(tTi they sje to b paid cer
tain fees for their work.
We doubt Tory much if any county
in the state can boast a more faithful
and conscientious board of appraisers
than the Morrow county board. They
have done faithful work, and there
certainly can be no cause whatever
for complaint

Recommendation Made That 1921 Pool
Be Declared Closed Now.
(The Producer)
The district delegates of the Ore
gon Cooperative Grain Growers held
a meeting in the offices of the asso
ciation, in the Fitzpatrick building, at
Portland, Oregon, last week The del
egates present were:
A R. Shumway, Milton; J. W. Dyer,
MayvilL W. J. Edwards, Condon; Joe
Devine, Lexington, Ralph Benge,
Heppner; Howard Anderson, Hepp
ner; Fred Krusow, Grass Valley; V.
H. Smith, Wasco; Charles Harth, The
Dalles; A. V. Swift, Baker; W. N.
Downing, Shaw; J. E. Reynolds, pres
ident La Grande.
The delegates considered the gen
eral routine business of the associa
tion and studied the reports of last
year's operations as presented by
Whitfield-Whitcomb & Co., certified
public accountants, who were appoint
ed by Dr. Kerr, president of the Ore
gon Agricultural college, regularly
to audit the books of the various asso
ciations and found everything in or
der. The board recommended to the
Northwest Wheat Growers' Associat
ed, which was afterward adopted by
them, that the 1921 pool be declared
closed, and that the auditing depart
ment of the associated immediately
prepare to render to the various
statea intersted, the final accounting,
so that the states could render their
final accounting to the growers. They
thought that it would be possible to
close the business up now probably
by the first of December.
The Oregon board reported tnat
they had received up to October 1,
1,750,000 bushels of wheat in the pool,
which, measured with the 2,500,000
bushels of last year, was a very fav
orable showing. The percentage of
the total wheat brought by the farm
ers this year was larger than last
year due to the fact that the crop was
30 short this year. .
The Oregon board adjourned to
meet November 4.
Mr. Jewett, who just returned from
the east was present at the meeting
and gave to the directors a general
report of the conditions which en
thused them very much over the pros
pect of cooperative marketing.

Despondent, Takes Life
With High Power Rifle
Edward A. Clark destroyed his life
with a high power rifle at the home
of Dick Lahue, Just south of town on
last Thursday evening, while in a
mentally unbalanced condition. He
was alone in the house at the time,
and getting hold of the gas, stepped
into the woodshed, placed the muxzle
of the weapon ia hia mouth and
pulled the trigger. The impact near
ly blew hia head off and left a hole
in the back of the head sufficiently
large to receive a man's fist
George E. S perry and Glenn Hayes,
who were going by the place, were
asked by Lahue to look Into tho wood
shed and aee what had happened, as
he was some distance from the house
and had left Clarke there alone. The
men found Clarke had taken hia life
in the manner stated, and the author
ities were notified. Coroner Case held
an inquest on the body Friday and the
jury returned a verdict that the man
had come to hia death by a gunshot
wound, the shot being fired by his
own hand.
Clarke's act waa evidently caused
by his despondent condition. He waa
a one-armed man, and for many years
had suffered much from heart trouble.
He waa ambitious to work, but hia
physical condition would not permit
of this, and he often became despond
ent over hia condition, and drank a
great deal, though a fin fellow and
well liked by all who knew him when
not in his cups. He came her from
Fossil a year or two ago, and had fol
lowed aheepherding a great deal. So
far as is known here, he had no rela
tives. His funeral waa held from St
Patrick's church in this city Monday

Two Northwest Coufemc Football
Teams T Play Friday, October It.
Many Heppaer Aluwl aad Fans
Will Attead.
Eastern Oregon football faaa and
residents of Heppner are much In
terested in the coming gama between
the University of Oregon and Whit
man College which ia to be played in
Pendleton on Friday, October 20th,
Both teams have developed a sur
prisingly strong early season organi
sation and the game promises to be a
real battle. Whitman, with a power
ful line and a veteran baekfield, dis
played unexpected strength against
the University of Idaho in the recent
gam at Walla Walla, when the Gem
Staters were able to defeat the Mis
sionaries only by a 3 to 0 score which .
resulted from a drop kick by Fitike.
Ob defensive the Whitman eleven waa
a tower of strength and the Idaho
team waa unable to pierce the Whit
man line at any period of the game to
any advantage. Coach Vincent Bor
leskie, of Whitman, states that in his
belief by Octobre 20th he will have a
mnch stronger team than he had last
year when he won the Northwest Con
ference championship.
The University of Oregon eleven
gives promise of Wing the strongest
team the Eugene institute has had
since the chantpionship 1916 team,
when it waa rated as one of the great
est teams in the United States. Al
ready it haa a powerful baekfield with
two acts of baekfield stars, either of
which ia almost equally dangerous.
In early season games Oregon has
shown that her team is to be serious
ly reckoned with in the Coast Foot
ball Conference this season.
Plans are being made for a gala
affair in Pendleton on the 20th and
indications are that the largest crowd
that ever witnessed an athletic event
in thia section of Eastern Oregon or
Washington will be in Pendleton on
that date. Reservations are pouring
in from every part of Eaatern Oregon
and Washington. The gam will be
held in the Round-Up Park at 2:30
p. m. Railroad connections with the
various towns are so that it will be
possible at almost any point in East
ern Oregon to leave home and return
after the game the same day. The big
celebration will be closed with a
dance at the famous Happy Canyon
pavilion Although open to the gen
eral public yet it will be a grand re
union of all former University of Or
egon and Whitman students.
Many former student of the two
participating schools and football
fana of Heppner are making plana to
be present at the game, and several
car loads of them will go over to Pen
dleton a week from tomorrow.
On account of the very serious
illness of her mother, Mrs. Snell, at
Arlington, Mrs. Lena Shurte, county
school superintendent spent several
daya at her bedside. She returned to
Heppner on Tuesday afternoon, but
was called to Arlington again on yes
terday afternoon., upon receiving
word that her mother was much
worse. '
W. B. Tucker, Blackhorsa wheat
raiser, was in Heppner a short time
Friday and states that he is a busy
man these days, getting his seed into
the ground. Since the big rain, farm
era have had to hustle as it is a fine
time to do the seeding. In fact no
better season has happened along this
way for many years.
W F. Barnett of Lexington was in
the city for a short time this morn
ing. He states that the farmers of
hia section are working almost day
and night now in getting their seed
ing done, and conditions are the best
they have had for many years for
getting in the fall crop.
F. H. Wilson was in the city over
last evening. He has taken back his
place from Mr. Douglass, near lone,
and the same has been leased to Chas.
Erwin, who will farm the land for
a period of years. Mr. Wilson expects
to return to his home at Huntington
Beach, Calif., in about a month.
E. B, Gorton started for the ahow
at Heppner last Saturday, but when
re got to lone concluded that it was
a so much better place that he stopp
ed off here for a couple of days. It is
needless to say that Mr. G. is a gent
leman of excellent judgment. lone
D. E. Gilman left for Portrland on
Monday for a short business trip. He
expects Mrs. Gilman to return home
with him, as she is making a visit in
Portland with friends since returning
from the W. R. C. national convention
at Pes Moines, Iowa.
We are glad to report that Clarence
Scrivner, who has been very sick for
the past two weeks with pneumonia,
is now well on the road to recovery
and is improving fast He could be
moved home from the hospital this
Francis Griffin, young farmer of the
Fairview district, was a visitor in
Heppner for a short time on Tuesday.
He is new busy with the fall seeding,
the recent fine rains in his section
putting the ground in excellent shape.
Material for the new Christian
church is arriving rapidly this week,
and Contractor Denisau is moving
right along with the work of con
struction, hoping to have the building
