BROKEN BAT FATAL
M on U true and Soivester Star for Gil
liam County Tram; Game
Scoreless to Seventh
A broken bat may have been the
cause of Heppner's defeat at the
hands of Arlington on Gentry field
Sunday. It was a no-score game up
to the seventh inning when Arling
ton run in 4 counters. It looked then
like a shut out for Ileppner till the
last of the ninth, when the locals
started a batting rally which resulted
In two tallies before the broken bat
incident brought the game to an end.
"Speck" Aiken started the rally
with a safe bingle for two bags, and
crossed home plate on a pretty drive
by "Chappy" King, the next man up.
King made third in the melee that
followed, and a hit by Van Marter
brought him home. Anderson waa un
able to locate the ball, making two
down. Ward picked a nice single that
landed Van Marter on htird and Paul
Aiken came to bat. Paul had his bat
ting eye with him and hit the pill a
lick that should have sent It out of
the lot, but Fate decreed against the
locals when his bat broke, making a
nice little pop fly to right field.
What might have happened with
Van on his way home from third and
Ward on second if the bat hadn't giv
en way, la left for Heppner fani to
surmise. As It was Arlington went
home with the bacon to the tune of
The pitching of "Toots" Montague
was an outstanding feature of the
game. He had a no-hit record to his
credit till the last of the ninth, and
it is little wonder that he weakened
when once he was found. B rough ton,
Heppner's lanky twirler, had an off
day, as he was unable to put the dope
on the ball that has characterized
his pitching in previous games. The
receiving work of King did much to
ward holding the local team together.
"Buster" Soivester, short-stop for
the victors, was a thorn In Hepp
ner's side, as they were unable to find
a safe place for the ball any place
in his part of the daimond. He field
ed several balls that were probably
good for hits in most any league.
Con ley, his running mate on sec
ond, likewise played a pretty field
The locals consider it no disgrace
to be downed by the brand of ball

are only awaiting their chance to re

Making Fine Ice Cream
As a usual thing we all think that
what is produced away from home is
superior in quality to that of the
same article produced by the local
factory. During the past several sea
sons, the Morrow County Creamery
has been manufacturing ice cream,
and each seaRon Manager Cox has im
proved the quality and increased the
quantity of his product until now he
is taxing the capacity of his plant to
The best thing about it is the ice
cream now being put out by the
creamery company is not excelled by
any product on the Heppner market,
and Mr. Cox Is to be congratulated
for the excellence of the article he is
manufacturing, and is deserving of
the fine trade he enjoys.

County Court Secures
Right of Way for Grade
A very satisfactory settlement of

grade leading up Heppner hill on the

tween the county court and W. P.
Dutton and J. H. Gemmell, through
whose ranches the most of the road
runs. The problem of getting out to
Hepppner flat on a grade coming
within the requirements of the state
highway department, has been one
that has agitated the court for some
months, and pending its Bettieirent,
the work of building the new road
has been held up. Having found the
right grade, it was necessary to make
settlement with the parties interest
ed, and now that this has been ac
complished, it will not be long be
fore work is started with the road
machinery and the new road laid out.
The court expresses great satisfac
tion over the outcome and feel that
nothing now stands in the way of
getting the macadam finished to the
top of the hill.

RESOLUTIONS OF CONDOLENCE
Whereas it has pleased God in his
wisdom to call fren his eetrthty labor
our brother Robert Emmett Jones,
Whereas Brother Jones has for a
number of years been a faithful and
valued member of Dorian Temple No.
16 of Heppner, and it is fitting and
right that we as Pythian Sisters make
proper and merital acknowledgement
and record of the high esteem and
fraternal love in which we hold him,
Resolved that while we humbly
bow to the Supreme Ruler we are
filled with sorrow at the passing of
of our brother. To the children and
relatives of our brother we extend
our deepest sympathy in their hour
Let a copy of this resolution be
transmitted to the family of the de
ceased, a copy entered upon the min
utes of the Temple and a copy be giv
en the press for publication.

nic and Commencement Round
Out Four Years of Toil
Closing events of Heppner high
school for the year begins with the
Junior-Senior banquet at Hotel Hepp
ner tomorrow evening. Baccalaur
eate sermon will be at the Christian
church Sunday evening, delivered by
Rev. W. O. Livingstone, and the fol
lowing week will be filled with ex
aminations, class play, class picnic
The class of sixteen to be grad
uated from the high school Friday
evening has a busy time ahead of
them for a full week, when comes a
short relapse to regain energy with
which to attack further problems in
the making of a career. When they
gather round the festive board with
the Juniors tomorrow evening they
will forget all strife and dissention
between the two classes for three
years and bequeath to their succes
sors all the rights of Seniorship for
the coming year.
Then donning their best demeanor
and handsomest togs they will file
down the Christian church aisle Sun
day evening and take their places in
the front pews before Rev. W. O.
Livingstone to receive God's benedic
tion for having progressed thus far
in the struggle for supremacy with
a prayer to help them to attain much
higher stations. But, even at grad
uation time, all is not glory, for on
Tuesday and Wednesday this same
sixteen must knit their brows and ir
ritate the gray matter over final ex
aminations. For a moment's diver
sion, however, they will put on their
stage faces and amuse the public for
a couple of hours Tuesday evening
with the class play.
"And Home Came Ted" is the ve
hicle with which the class is to make
itself famous in high school theatri
cals at the Star theater Tuesday
night. The play is a comedy of mys
tery in three acts, and promises to
be a rare treat for those who may
see fit to desert family firesides for
the show house when it is presented.
After the play and another day of
exams have been safely passed the
class will resort to a day of recrea
tion Thursday, when the class picnic
will be held, to recuperate to the
fullest possible extent for the big
gest ordeal of all the graduating
exercises on Friday evening.
At the graduating ceremonies in
the high school auditorium the pub
lic will be accorded a musical treat,
as Mrs. Bernice Dafoe Hopper, di
rector, has prepared several beauti
ful selections. It is not certain who
will give the commencement address,
as Sam Dolan of O. A. C. who was to
speak has notified Professor Hedrick
that he cannot be here. Those who
will receive diplomas are:
