The Gazette-Times PUBLISHED WEEKLY AND DEVOTED TO THE BEST INTERESTS OF MORROW COUNTY Volume 40, Number 3. HEPPNER, OREGON, THURSDAY, APR. 12, 1923. Subscription $2.00 Per Year New Eastern Star Offi T Recorder's Court Has Grind Monday Morning His Liking for Sweets cers Will Be Installed A hot game of bull Is promised the fans at Gentry field on Sunday afternoon, when the irrtgationtsts from down Boardman way will be here to content for honors against the local ball tossers. The Board man team will doubtless be accom panied by a large number of boosters from that town, who feel that this season they have a team that is go ing to be a winner, and one that has so far shown themselves to be up and coming, and they will try hard to annex another victory. Heppner, also, has a good team to pit against Boardman Fur day, and Manager Van Marter will endeavor very strenuously to prevent the visit ors getting the long end of the score. His team is to be strength ened by consistent practice, and the addition of Gay M. Anderson, who was on the sick list .hen the first grime was played, will riein that the visitors are going to met stubborn resistance. This game gives promiae of being a good one. Boardman has gone up against lone in two games already, winning one and losing one, but they are capable of playing fine ball. The Heppner fans should give the locals rousing good support, as this will encourage the development of a strong bunch of players here this season that can be expected to get their portion of the games they go Into.

Rumors have been going about In some parts of the county that hosrt are dying from hog cholera. One of these cases was investigated by the County Agent but no positive proof of hog cholera could be found The hogs might have had hog cholera but the ea was not reported soon enough to hold a post mortem and decide whether or not the hogs-died of hog cholera. Every farmer of Mor row County is certainly interested in keeping down the losses from hog cholera to a minimum. According to Government statistics the losses from hog cholera in Oregon each year is between four and nine thous and hogs. Hog cholera is the most furious disease of hogs. Anyone knowing of cases that giva indica tions of being hog cholera should report them promptly to the County Agent, This will enable control measures to be adopted at once if the disease is present. The bureau of Animal Industry has made a study of the disease and finally developed an anti-hog cholera serum which la the only known reliable preventative agent. By treatment according to this simultaneous inoculation method or the double treatment method, as it is often called, hogs can be perm anently immune from the disease. Fred McMurray, H. G. Rankin, and J. Pettys of lone had their hogs vac cinated according to this treatment last week. No hogs have been lost on any of these ranches but it was thought that there might be some hog cholera in the vicinity as there had been some losses near by. There are several cases of hog cholera in Wasco county at the present time according to Mr. Derflinger of the State Veterinary office. No ewes are known in Morrow county. Let as all keep on the look-out and keep it out of Morrow county. Boardman May Have New Cheese Factory Prospects are flattering; for a new ebeese factory in Boardman.
