The Great Success Attained in Hand
ling First Rodeo Prompts Citizen
to Keep McNamer, Gentry and Lat
otirell on Job; Date fur Second
Rodeo to Be September 27-28-29.
A rousing meeting of Rodeo fans
was held at the council chambers
on Monday evening, which was well
attended by representatives of the
business Interests of the community,
and the unanimous decision reached
was that a bigger and better show
would be put on for three days this
coming fall. Showing their appre
ciation of the good work accomplish
ed in the first Rodeo by the commit
tee putting it over last year, it
was the unanimous decision that they
be retained for the coming event, and
Messrs. C. W. McNamer, L. V. Gentry
and Chas. H. Latourell will again
have general supervision, it being
understood that they will attend to
the appointing of any other commit
tees that they may see fit, it also
being left to their discretion as to
the date on which the Rodeo will be
held. Following out this instruction,
they have decided to set the date def
initely as September 27, 28 and 29,
being just one week following the big
show at Pendleton.
J. J. Nys was chosen to act as
treasurer and LaVerne Van Marter
will till the position of secretary, thus
completing the organization for the
present, and the move for the 1923
Rodeo is off with a bang, all indica
tions pointing to a bigger and better
entertainment than last season,
though that was a pronounced suc
cess in every way.
Bert Mason, manager of the lone
baseball team and mayor of our
neighbor city, was present at the
meeting, being called to Hcppner to
make some arrangements for the com
ing ball game between the two towns,
and he took occasiun to state that his
community was well pleased with the
entertainment and treatment they re
ceived at Heppner last fail when the
Rodeo was on, and that they were
ready to cooperate this sar.o i and ,
come in larger numbers than before. j
He also stated that his little city,
through the efforts of the American
legion boys is planning a big
Fourth of July celebration, and he
asked for the cooperation of Mcpp
ner and nivited our people to uttcnil
en masse. He received assurance
that this should be done.
In discussing the coming Rodeo, it
was decided that here should be a
lot of work done on the track in or
der that it will be in better shape than
last year and in better view of the
grand stand. A holiday should be
called that this work be put over
without a cash outlay, Mr. Gentry as
serting his willingness to donate men
and teams and scrapers and other
things necessary, with the people of
the city giving the necessary labor.
A permanent fence will be erected
and the idea seems to be to put the
grounds in permanent shape. Action
on this will be taken later.
As was done last year, the com
mittee will ask for a guarantee from
the business men in a sum sufficient
to assure the complete success of the
undertaking, and they feel that there
will be no necessity in the end for
the guarantors to lose a cent, for the
show will undoubtedly pay its way

Cutworms When Hun
gry Readily Poisoned
Poison Bran Mash Put on Field Be
fore Crop Is Up Is Eaten
With Great Relish.
"Cutworms which seriously attack
garden crops may be killed otf before
they have opportunity to injure the
plants, by application of a poison
bran mash," says A. L. Lovett, in
charge of entomological research at
the Oregon Agricultural college ex
periment station. "The mash should
be scattered over the garden after
the soil is prepared for planting and
before any green vegetation appears
in the field."
A formula which will make enough
poison bait to treat one acre is bran
15 pounds, lead-arsenate 1 pound, mo
lasses or a cheap syrup, 2 quarts, salt
4 ounces, and enough water to make
a coarse crumbly mash. This mash
may be broadcast over the field to be
treated. Late afternoon is the best
time of day for scattering the ma
terial. The worms devour the poison
A thimblefull of the mash placed
near newly set tomato and cabbage
plnnts will protect them from cut
worm attacks. The mash will injure
the plants if allowed to come in con
tact with the stems.
Most cutworms pass the winter In
soil as partly grown cutworm caterpil
lars. They. are of grassy dull color
with faint spots and lines and with
out hairy covering. When fully
grown, they average one inch to one
and one-half inches long.
Lack of green vegetation following
preparation of the soil for planting in
the spring, forces the worms to fast.
They rapidly develop a keen appetite
and become seriously destructive to
newly set plants, unless controlled.

Thirty Years Ago
Orchestra Music Sent Over Wire to
WilHamsport From Philadelphia
Gave Rare Treat In 1891.
The large horn which delivers the
sound from the Bell Loud Speaker is
not the most important part of the
marvelous mechanism, but it plays its
own part. That such a horn would
increase the volume of sound was rec
ognized by the engineers of the Amer
ican Telephone & Telegraph Company
many years ago. An instance is told
of a dinner given in WilHamsport,
Pennsylvania, by a prominent resi
dent, a Mr. Rhoades, on April 3, 1891,
A number of telephone receivers with
horns attached to them were hung In
the chandelier over the dinner table
and the whole contrivance concealed
from sight and suspicion by a wonder
ful display of flowers. Mr. Rhoades
residence was connected by the Amer
ican Telephone & Telegraph Company
with the Continental Hotel in Phila
delphia, where there was & fine con
cert that same evening. Great was
the amazement of Mr. Rhoades'
guests when suddenly they heard
very clearly orchestral music from
some invisible source such as they
knew was not to be heard in Wil-
liamsport. No less was their inter
est and delight when it was explained
to them that they were listening by
telephone to a concert that was being
given in Philadelphia.
Improved methods of transmission,
together with the vacuum tube ampli'
fier, have produced results which
would amaze those who attended this
early demonstration. It is now possi
ble to carry not only musical pro
grams but the words of public speak
ers over specially nrranged telephone
circuits across the continent and to
increase their volume to such an ex
tent that thousands of people can
hear them with perfect distinctness.
