FARM IS BEST BET
Five Facton In Educating Young
Farmer! Held to Be Eaaentlal;
"Start Them Early"
(By R. B WILCOX In Morrow
County Farm Bureau News.)
The great quarrel In the country to
day Is about unsatisfactory condi
tions surrounding the producers of
grain, fruit, stock, etc., and the prop
er way to better these conditions.
A prominent banker recently said
that he believed that what the pro
ducer needs most is not an unlimited
amount of credit but a better mar
keting system. The chance to bor
row money when absolutely needed
has been a very unsatisfactory hand
icap but unless the crop, that this
money finances, can be profitably mar
keted then the producer is surely
playing a losing game and the lender
has small chance of repayment.
Some of the great problems for
the future to solve then are: labor,
money, cost of production, methods
of production and marketing.
Under ordinary conditions the boy
and girl whose duty it is going to be
to help work out these things never
has any occasion to think about these
things until he is turned loose from
We rightly urge our boys and girls
to at least finish high school and
that means they are about 17 or 18
years old. Through the school car
eer the things that they ordinarily
do tends to wean them away from the
essentials that they must combat
sooner or later, rather than to help
them to a simple acquaintance with
In some unaccountable way educa
tion seems to discredit labor. I heard
a speaker address some pupils on the
play ground in front of the school
building. Near at hand was a large
number of men at work on a new
building. The gist of the speaker's
remarks was, "Get an education boys
and girls so you will not have to
work like those poor fellows over
there. Several of the children's par
ents were at work on the building.
All the way through the school
course the school work and school
requirements occupy so much of the
pupil's time that about the only thing
left of his rural connections is the
distasteful remembrance of disagree
able chores and farm drudgery. If
any other opening presents itself he
abandons the farm for some other
supposedly more agreeable calling.
Through this poor arrangement of
existnig conditions we And many a
man behind a desk that should be
following a plow and others forced
through circumstances to farm when
they would make a better success of
life somewhere else.
The aim of boys and girls club
work Is to try to open their eyes
to the proper understanding of Tural
conditions and to try and keep an
agreeable connection between the boy
and girl and their home surroundings
while the modern school is weaning
them away from them.
Club work lays a foundation for
an understanding of the rural prob
lems referred to above.
The second factor mentioned was
money or credit. Provision is made
in club work whereby club members
may borrow money to buy calves,
pigs, etc. In this way they get an
idea of that problem.
The third factor was cost of pro
duction. In every project the club
member must keep an accurate ac
count of all cost. Thus they are lay
ing a foundation for an understand
ing of this problem.
The fourth was method of produc
tion. Club work outlines the best
approved plans for this.
The fifth was marketing. In many
of the club projects the member is
expected to sell his product. Thus
they are brought face tu face with
the problem of marketing.
It is going to take years of study
and experimentation to work out
successful solutions for these great
problems. Why not let our boys and
girls commence the job while they
are young. Once interested in these
problems I am sure better conditions
will much more quickly be secured.

With three welJ-placed singles, lone
started the scoring game In the first
inning on Gentry field Sunday. Their
boom was nipped In the bud, however,
for they were allowed only one run
by Heppner's nice team work. Things
still looked very favorable for lone
at the end of the second, as the
locals were unable to score while
the visitors squeezed in another run
after placing a few more nice hits.
The game wan tit for tat then un
til the last of the sixth nining, when
Speck Aiken started a batting fest
wh ich resu Ited in five scores for
Heppner before lone was able to
get things under control. Although
the visitors knocked the ball around
the lot for a total of 12 hits during
the game, they did all their scoring
the first two innings. The locals run
in one run in the seventh, and the
score stood 6-2 as the last batter
took the umpire's count.
AM told Sunday's game was a good
exhibition of ball, with only three
errors made by both sides. The
lineups were practically the same
that have faced each other in pre

Famous Drama "Shepherd of the Hills" to Be Given at Chautauqua Here, June 22 to 27
Dramatization of Harold Bell Wright's Delightful Story of the Ozark Mountains to Be Presented on the
Pp- Y I
4 s viJiA i ' U 1?-:
"The Shepherd of the Hills" will be a feature attraction at the Chautauqua in Heppner this year. This delightful American play, dramatized from
Harold Bell Wright's fumous story, is to be presented with scenic equipment by the Keighley and Peffer Players of New York City. A picked cast of
experienced people, selected and personally coached by Messrs. Keighley and Peffer, will give the production. "The Shepherd of the Hills" is a play of
the Ozurk Mountains. The characters, some rough and lawless, others of finer instincts, are typical of the strong, spirited pioneers who established the
outposts of civilized life in the wild new land of the West. Dramatically real, with passages oi fdyllic beauty, is this story of their friendships, their
loves, their feuds. Keighley and Peffer are perhaps two of the best known New York actor-producers. Their productions are solid and dignified and
through their professional standing in New York are enabled to secure the best and cleanest of American plays for Chautauqua presentation.

Films African Big Game
After Many Others Fail
The enormous difficulties of Afri
can photography which have caused
many expeditions to return empty
handed and have barred the making
of feature films on the locale, have
been solved by two California cine
matographers, H. A. Snow and Sidney
Snow, whose Universal Picture pro
duction, "Hunting Big Game in Af
rica" will be shown at the Star the
ater next Wednesday.
The film was packed in tin trunks.
After exposure in the day's hunt, it
was developed the same night within
the portable movie laboratory. Pre
vious photographers had trusted to
chemically impure river water, but
this expedition used rain water in
the developing baths, collecting and
storing it for the desert journeys.
Working at night kept the emul
sion from peeling off the base. Many
a cinema house in Capetown has had
the experience of seeing a whole
feature dissolve to sticky glue.
Guarding aganist heat was only one
precaution, for static, insects that eat
the film, and other pests play havoc.
Every step was marked by the ut
most care, and ceaseless experiment
ation resulted in a technique that de
Another great difficulty in Africa
has been that of getting up close to
the animals. The "still" photograph
er solved it by means of the "camera
trap,' i.e., a string which the beast
stepped on and which snapped his
picture, but there has been no known
means of making the animals picture
themselves moviely. The Snows put
a familiar American invention to
work, and were no longer obliged to
depend on telephoto views. They
"got" all the large beasts in close
ups, and show for the first time the
intimate life of the jungle. Personal
bravery in the hunt combats did the
rest. Sidney Snow, the chief cine
matographer was with his father on
the gun firing line everywhere.
Former Heppner Merch
ant Dies at Hood River
Frank McFarland, well known to
many of the older residents of Hepp
ner, and a resident of Portland for
the past 25 years, died suddenly at
Hood River on Saturday, where he
was engaged at the time in putting
over a business deal. His demise was
caused by heart disease.
More than thirty years ago Mr.
McFarland came to Heppner and en
gaged in the general mercantile bus
iness, and for several years enjoyed
a very large trrnde, especially with
the interior country. He occupied
the room in the building where the
store of Phelps Grocery company is
now situated, and the home that he
built here was destroyed in the Hepp
ner flood of June. UUK1, but he and
his family had removed to Portland
previous to that time. He was en
gaged in the real estate nnd insur
ance business in Portland for many
years, in which line he was quite
successful. Dr. Earl C. McFarland,
recently appointed collector of cus
toms at Portland by President Hard
ing, is his son, and was born in this
city when the family resided here.

PILOT ROCK TAKES
2 TO HEPPNER'S 10
Tight Game Promised But
Visitors Could Not
The game of ball between Heppner
and Pilot Rock at Gentry Field yester
day afternoon drew a fine crowd, as
it was expected that the game wo-jM
be a tight one, and an exhibition of
real ball playing. In this, however.
thre was disappointment, at tV -itors
failed entirely to be a ma'ch 'or
the home players, and iha sore
a one-sided affair so :iuc!j no, tr at
the locals were not encou r..'; l to i t
uo their best exhibki-ja and cont
quently were the butt of m;ic i tH?7
iv.g from the bleachers.
In the first time at bat, Heppner
ran in four counts, in the second
three, in the fifth two, and in the sev
enth one. Owing to errors Pilot
Rock was allowed to scratch in a cou
ple in their half of the ninth, not be
ing able to get more than two men
on bases in any previous inning, and
this occurred a couple of times only.
The battery of the visitors was weak
and they fell down most of the way
around. A new catcher was put in in
the seventh after there had been a
change in the pitcher's box and Pilot
Rock gathered a little new pep, but
the rally came too late.
Heppner has strengthened their
team by the addition of Doty, who is
a fine man at the bat and fills short
stop acceptably. Some other changes
might be made to strengthen the line
up, which will doubtless be done
when another game is played. The
Pilot Rock fellows are a good bunch
of sports, and while the odds were
greatly against thera in yesterday's
game, they did their best and did it

Mrsr Vann Presents
A Varied Program
The goodly audience that heard
Mrs. Mary Adele Case Vann in re
cital at the Christian church on
Tuesday evening were delighted with
the program presented. The num
bers were of a very high order, and
Mrs. Vann proved her ability to han
dle in the most artistic manner each
selection offered. She was assisted
at the piano by her husband, James
Silas Vann, who is an artist of high
order, though of very modest demean
or, and their program is a treat to
all music lovers. While many of
the numbers on the program were
classical, Mrs. Vann sang enough of
the lighter class of melodies to give
variety and also to bring out the mel
ow qualities of a well trained con
tralto voice. It is a delight indeed
to hear these people, and we hope
that Mr. and Mrs. Vann will come
this way again.

A class of fourteen young women
and two young men were presented
with their diplomas at the commence
ment exercises of Heppner high

by a good sized audience and the

some time on the importance of the
graduates continuing their prepara
tion for life's work by attending the
higher educational Institutions, and
spoke many good words for both the
Oregon Agricultural College and the
University of Oregon, not failing to
mention the high ideals maintained
by the two state schools and praising
the men who stand at the head of
these institutions. Mr. Everett is not
a finished oartor, but his address was
nevertheless very impressive, being
delivered in a plain and understand
