Brotherhood Meeting Discusses Hepp-
ner'a Heritage, and Then Saya Nice
Thinga- to Retiring Highway Com-
miaaioner and County Clerk.
The aubject for discussion at the
Brotherhood meeting on last Monday
nignt was aomewhat laid in the shade
by the turn that eventa took. W. O.
Livingstone was the first to speak,
and he confined his remarks to the
subject, stating that he was "talking
about something that he knew noth
ing about," but nevertheless bringing
out a number of very good points on
neppner s Heritage." Among a
number of things touched on by the
speaker was the regaining of trade
territory that at the present seemed
lost to the city; this being a heritage
that we should regain, if possible.
Then there was the bringing of cheap
er fuel into the city from the almost
inexhaustible supply lying right at
our door in the big belt of timber back
of town and but a few miles away;
an attractive and convenient camping
ground for tourists, and last, but not
least, an improved train service on
the branch. These were just some
things that appealed to the speaker
at this time, and he left much for
C. A. Minor was then called on,
word having been sent to him at
Portland by a member of the commit
tee on arrangements that it would
be a pleasure to hear from him on
this subject If it were possible for
Mr. Minor to be here. Having re
ceived the consent of his physician
that he might come to Heppner, an
that he would be permitted to take
some part in the meotinur. orovide
ho made no attempt at speaking, Mr,
Minor came prepared with an original
poem that set out, not only his ideas
or Heppner s heritage, but also con
tained much ancient history of th
town, all of which was well presented
ana greatly enjoyed. Art is endowet,
with a fine memory, and his contribu
tion to the evening's program set jut
much that was enjoyed by tha old'
timers present, as well as those com
ing to the city at later dates.
It was up to S. E. Notion to divulge
the "conspiracy" of the evening, and
after a few remarks on the subjee
in hand, he proceeded to hand out
some read bouquets to W. B. Barratt,
retiring highway commissioner. Hi
excuse for this was that he felt it
was better to show our appreciation
of the pepole while they were yet
here to receive it, because they could
' not read the nice things said about
them on their tombstone when they
were dead. Mr. Notson made Barratt
feel that he had the gratofu! appre
ciation or his home town and com
munity for the good services per
formed while on the highway com
mission, and what he said was gen
erously applauded. He also turned
loose on Joe Waters and said a lot of
nice things about him, all of which
was deserved for the eight or more
years or raithful service on behalf
of the public of Morrow county as
Other speakers fell in line to add
their testimony of appreciation to
these two gentlemen, these being C.
fc. woodson, V. I,. Kweok, J. J, Nys,
Judge lampbell, R. W. Turner and
rrank (.Milium.
Mr. Barratt responded in a cheer.
ful manner, stating that he had been
jobbed in coming to the meeting,
for it was to devolve upon him to
make a speech and hand out some
nice talk to Mr. Waetrs, and here
they had turned their guns on him
He thanked the speakers, kindly, for
their remarks concerning his efforts
lo bring something to his home town
and county while on the commission,
out rclt that he had only done hi
- duty and was indeed glad that he had
been of some real service.
Mr. Waters, who is quite reserved,
wnen It comes to speaking In his own
behalf, thanked the Brotherhood and
friends for their good words and was
glad that he had been able to serve
the people in a way that called forth
their generous approbation. Joe
couldn't say very much, but he felt
a whole lot and was made to realize
that he has gained a place in the
hearts of his fellow citizens that
should be the envy of every good man.
the meeting was attended by 76
members and visitors, and when it
was over the expressions on all sides
were to the effect that It was the best
yet hold. It was gratifying to the
president and other members of the
Brotherhood that so many were pres
ent and President Wators gave them
an urgent Invitation to come back
next month, prepared to toll
"best story."
Car Turns Over On
Rhea Creek Road
While returning to town from a
trip to upper Rhea creek on Sunday,
Game Warden Albee met with an acci
dent to his Ford car. Striking a rock
in the road, the car was suddenly
swerved and turned completely over.
With Mr. Albee in the car was his
son, 16 yeara of ago. The latter re

vices and Members Expected
to Attend In a Body.
In the 112 cities in Oregon where
are located posts of the American Le
gion, April 8 will be commemorated
as "American Legion Sunday," it be
ing the Sunday falling closest to the
anniversary of the declaration of
war against Germany.
The Rev. Frank James of Dallas,
department chaplain of ;the American
Legion, in calling attention to a state
convention resolution establishing
the day which it is hoped will become
as distinctive to the legion as Memor-
ial Sunday is to the G. A. R., declared
"The thought is that each post in
the state will Brrange with the minis
ters of the churches in their town for
a union service of all the churchei
in the name of the Legion, one of the
ministers preaching the sermon, the
Legion attending in a body. It is
hoped that the churches in the town
where posts of the Legion are dulv
organized will accede to the request
of local posts for such a service when
requested. It is further hoped that
every post will make the request and
then honor the courtesy of the
churches by attending the service ar
ranged in a body with as strong a
representation as possible. The
American Legion stands for the high
est and the best interests of the com
munity. Many of it's members are
active in the work of the churches of
the various denominations. Such a
service will be in harmony with the
ideals of the Legion, and wherever
it may be held will be distinctly non-
denominational. It is therefore hoped
that this American Legion Memorial
Sunday will find a permanent place
in the program of the Legion posts
and the churches of the state."

Stray Dogs Cause Loss of Sheep.
The visitation of a couple of stray
dogs at the ranch of W. H. Cleve-
and Tuesday, caused the loss of
about 54 head of ewes. The dogs came
to the corral at the barn where the
ewe band was, during the absence of
the herder at dinner, and rushing the
sheep, caused them to pile un. The
band was being prepared for lambing
and Mr. Cleveland feels that his loss
is all the more severe on this account.

Readjustment of Charges to Live
Stock Interests Postponed Until
1925, When It la Believed Condi
tions In Industry Will Be Better.
Washington. March 12. There will
be no increase in fees charged for
grazing live stock on national forests
until iy:5, according to an announce
ment of the U. S. National Forest
Service in a telegram to the National
Wool Growers' Association.
For the first ten years after the
national forests were placed under
the supervision of the Department of
Agriculture only a nominal charge
was made for permits to graze live
siock. However, it was realized that.
excepting for the pioneer seriod. the
charge for our government range
must eventually be based UDon its
xair commercial value.
As steps toward such valuation.
moderate increase was made in graz
ing rees in iaia and 1919. at which
time the stockmen using national for
est ranges were given five-year per
mits expiring at the close of 1923.
Coincident with the issuance of such
permits, the stockmen were advised
that the various national forest
ranges would be carefully appraised
during that period and fees adjusted
accordingly for a new five-year per
iod beginning in 1924. and that the
new fees would be announced earlv
in 1923. The work of range appraisals
naa aavanced to where it is now evi
dent that a readjustment of fees
would result in a marked increase in
the grazing charges made on many
national forests.
However, the livestock industry in
the West is suffering severely from
economic collapse following the war
and aggravated by the climatic condi
tions which have been unfavorable to
the industry in a number of Western
states. It is therefore felt bv for-
stry officials that it would be unwise
take action at this time which
would result m increasing their bur
dens. For this reason the forester
as recommended and the Secretary
oi Agriculture nas approved the post
ponement of the readjustment of fees
until the grazing season of 1925.
According to forestry officials the
postponement of readjustment should
ot be construed as m any wav indi
eating a departure from the original
intention to establish and adhere to
the commercial value principle, which
is felt to be absolutely sound and
which they believe in the long run
will prove most acceptable to the
stocit industry.
Morrow County Should
Produce Seed Alfalfa
Oregon Agricultural Colleee. Cor.
vauis, Mar. 14. More alfalfa seed
can be profitably produced in Morrow
county, believes George R. Hyslop,
hief of farm crops at the O. A. C.
experiment station.
V e need a large production of
seed to take care of our annual plant-
gs, especially Grimm alfalf a." said
Hyslop. "There are not many farm
ers attempting to grow alfalfa as i
seed crop, but a great many have sold
stands that are thin and free from
weeds, which can be used for seed
Other counties in which food eed
can oe produced are Douglas, Jose
phine, Umatilla, Jackson and Baker.
Jackson county is probably the larg
est producer at the present time.
It is possible that alfalfa seed
will be a good crop in some sections
oi Lake county, if grown without ov-
irrigation. Some e-ood yields have
been obtanied in Malheur county."

"The second crop is usually saved
for seed in those counties where three
crops are cut. The first crop is saved
for seed in the sections where only
two crops are cut.
"Special care must be taken to grow
seed free from dodder, and get it
hulled with a low percentage of hard
seed," continued Hyslop. "It is more
profitable to grow good clean seed in
the field than to try to clean undesir
able weed seeds out of it after it has
been harvested."
