Winter wheat: 98,542; 1,641,660; i 16.2; 972; $12.96. Spring wheat: 17,149; 1H0.862; , 11.2; 672; $8.96. Oats: 235; 5.192; 18.2; 682; $8.01.1 Barley: 6,044; 97.722; 19.6; 941; I $11.37. ' 1 The average 5-year production of wheat in Morrow county was 1,822, 422 bunhels. Two other eastern Ore gon counties, Umatilla and Sherman, exceeded Morrow in total wheat pro duction. By far the largest propor portion of the acreage in Morrow county is sown to winter wheat.- Morrow county ranked third in win ter wheat production for the state and ninth In spring wheat production. The average 6-year acre yield for all wheat was 16.8 bushels. Morrow ranked thirty-fourth for nil counties of the state in acre yield of wheat, only one county, Jefferson, being low er. Based on average pre-war prices the avernge vnlue of an acre of win ter wheat in Morrow county was $12.96. Barley ranked second in acre value, $11.37.

UKIAH CHAMP TO SEEK LAURELS AT LOCAL SHOW Big Array of Buckers, Buckaroos, and Relay Racers Coming to Heppner Rodeo. Kenneth DePew, winner .of the bucking contest at Ukiah on the 4th of July, is coming to the Heppner Rodeo, September 25, 28, 27. DePew is a veteran rider capable of sticking to the tough ones and will offer for midable competition for local buck aroos, said C. W. McNamer who re turned from Ukiah the first of the week. Other Ukiah riders who will contest for the Rodeo championship are Kender, Wilson brothers, Loreni, Gerking and Forth, Coming along with the riders are 12 of Ukiah's worst outlaws, which combined with the present local string will total 25 of the worst buckers obtainable to take on the broncho-busters as fast as they come McNamer, in charge of obtaining the stock, declared there is absolutely no doubt that the best bucking exhibi tions ever put on at the Rodeo will feature this year's show. Ukiah, not being satisfied with sending this array of talent, also fur nishes the Gilland relay string which will arrive in time to compete in the races. This is a fast string and with a good rider will make the others step to keep up, "Mac asserted. An other fast relay string which is prom ised to be on hand is the Claude Brown string from Yakima. These together with local strings that may be entered will make this part of the program in the big arena bigger and better than ever before. "In fact, the whole Bhow promises to far outclass previous performances at the Rodeo, McNamer predicts, "and with the experience gained in handling events in years past, it is going to be put on with a snap and ginger that will keep the crowd on needles from start to finish. You bctcha! she's going to be a hummer." Activity fn Wool Market. Several wool sales were reported here the first of the week. J. B. Stan field of Pendleton, wool buyer for E. J. Burke Wool company of Boston, was the principal buyer. All sales were for 28e excepting thst of the clip of Hynd Bros, which brought 2Hc. Those Belling for 28c were Krebs Bros., Dan C.

RACE WILL BE CLOSE Unusual Political Situation Makes Possible Final Presidential Choice of Either Bryan or Dawes. Written for The Gazette-Times By EDWARD PERCY HOWARD Fancy a conservative newspaper publishing on its first page a story to the effect that ne ther Coolidge nor avls nor La Fol'ett 'will b elected President of the LVited SUipj ii November. At first glance such a statement might seem outside the realm of possibility, but the political situtaion is complex and the election machinery such that it does not re quire much imagination to forsee the possibility, if not the probability, of such a situation. Almost anything may happen in November. There are 531 votes in the Electoral College. The electoral college is com posed of electors from each state, equal in number to the number of Senators and Representatives to which the state fi entitled. For ex ample, New York state has two Sen ators and 43 Representatives. There fore, New York has forty-five votes in the electoral college. The total mem bership of the electoral college equals the total membership of tnc Senate and House 531. In voting it will be remembered that the people vote for the electors of their states, these names appearing on the ballot, and not those of Coolidge or Davis or La Follette. The Constitution provides that a majority of these 131 electoral votes, or 266, is necessary to the choice of a president. The person having the greatest number of votes, of course, wins when there are only two candi dates in the field, but with three the complexities begin. Here is the constitutional clause: "The person having the greatest number of votes (in the Electoral College) for President shall be the President, if such number be a ma jority of the whole number of elec tors appointed; and if no person hav ing such majority, then from the per sons having the highest numbers, not exceeding three, on the li st of those l-voled for as President, the House of Representatives shall choose imme diately by ballot, the President. Electing a President. Now let us turn to the situation If the candidate receiving merely the largest number of electoral votes could be chosen, then the entry of La Folette into the field would be un important, according to unbiased and astute political judges. But this is not the case, and there are many po- j litical observers who regard it as highly unlikely that a majority of the electoral vote will be won by any of the candidates. The second Monday of the follow ing January the electors in each state chosen at the November election meet in their respective state capitols and declare for their candidates. The votes will then be sent by messenger to the president of the Senate in Washington. They will be counted on the second Wednesday in February before the joint session of the House and Senate. Then the result will be announced. If no candidate has a majority two hundred and sixty-six votes then the House of Representatives must im mediately convene for the purpose of chosing a President. The choice be ing limited to the three highest can didates, would mean that the House would have only the option of choos ing one, either Davis, Coolidge or La Follette. How House Yotea. Here is where the election machin ery takes on a different color. There is no voting by Individuals in the House, Moreover, each state has on ly one vote. Rhode Island's vote equals that of New York. The vote of each state is determined by a ma jority of the Congressional Represen- (Continued on Page Two.) LOST Near Parkers Mill, July 4, black nad white spotted bird dog, li cense number 777.

Hood National For est, is closed to travellers, according to a statement just issued by the Dis trict Office, U. S. Forest Service, Port land. The area closed embraces nine sections of land, and takes in prac tically ail of the mountain, and the upper portion of the trail. This ac tion was taken by the District Office at the request of Forest Supervisor Sherrard, who stated that the strip of deadfall and broken limbs along the trail as the result of the ice storm of 1921-22, constituted a serious fire menace especially in conjunction with the great number of pleasure seekers who climb the mountain. While some of these visitors are said to be careful, reports indicate that others are irresponsible, careless and thoughtless, and it is therefore nec essary to keep everyone out in order to remove the fire hazard. The fact that this region is adjacent to the famous Bull Run watershed of the Mt. Hood National Forest, which fur nishes the city of Portland with drinking water, makes it of utmost importance to protect the region from forest fires. Three watersheds on the Whitman National Forest, in Eastern Oregon, have also just been closed, according to the report. These are: The Baker watershed, the Mill Creek watershed and the Black Pines warerEhed an area of 17,900 acres. In addition to these regions, the following areas have been reported closed to camping, smoking and uw of matches in the National Forests cf Oregon and Washington: Mt. Baker National Forest: The portion of the Skagit River valley ly ing within one half mile of the city of Seattle railroad, from the point where it crosses the National Forest boundary, to the end of the railroad near Gorge creek. Colville National Forest: Boulder Creek, Dead man Creek, and Sherman Creek watersheds. Chelan Naitonal Forest: All of the Forest is closed to campers except under permit, and on designated camp grounds. Cascade National Forest : Fall Creek and Salt Creek watersheds. The Forest Service contemplates the closing of other National Forest areas, should the high fire danger continue. In particular, certain im portant areas on the Wallowa Na tional Forest will probably be closed in the near future, according to the report. Forest officers state that they dis like very much to close these m-rews to the camping and travelling public during the vacation period. Many vis itors are careful with their fires; but there are others who still continue to come into the forests who are either thoughtless, careless, or just don't know, it is said. It is to-protect the public resources from the careless and the thoughtless that the Forest Service finds sucb drastic measures necessary. with huckleberries.

Performance . . u By Arthur Brisbane Take Your Choice. Another Milestone. Merchant Farmers. Valuable Wasps. Republicans demonstrate to you be yond the shadow of .doubt that La Follette will take his votes from John W. Davis, MOrganiid labor States will desert Democrats," and "Davis will get nothing but the South." Democrats can prove, if you have any intelligence at all, that La Fol lette's vote will be taken from Cool idge. La Follette is a Republican, his following is chiefly among farmers of the Northwest. They are Republi cans. La Follette will carry Wiscon sin, Minnesota, North and South Da kota, cripple Coolidge and elect Da vis. That is what the Democrats say. Civilization continues to pass im portant milestones. The end of slav ery was one. The steam engine was another; the electric dynamo another, telegraph and telephone others. The most romantic milestone is soon to be labeled "Around the World in a Flying Machine." Twenty-five million dollars' worth of grain elevators are included in a big merger that will allow men that grow grain to control marketing. This is one of the biggest cooperative marketing enterprises ever organized. The farmers owning this concern, IF they own it, and IF they control its management, would have storage for 50,000,000 bushels of grain, in Chi. cago, Kansas City, Omaha, Minneapo lis, t ort Worth, Texas, etc. Men that produce the wfceat, pigs, corn, potatoes, etc., ought to have something to do with the marketing and price regulation. They haven't managed it yet, but California has proved that it can be done. United States athletes have se cured the track and field champion ship in the Olympic games. Those are the most important events, since they indicate possession of the most intense nervous and mental concen tration. Running, jumping, etc., mean noth ing now except as they indicate brain and nerve power behind the record. This mixed race of ours, which is NOT a "Nordic" race, a Latin race, a Semitic or Celtie race, is doing as mixed races have done for centuries, Greece, Rome, France, England beating races that have allowed the breed to stagnate. B. G. Lamme is dead. How many of our 112,000,000 know his name? He was one of the four greatest elec tricians m this country. Ediscfi, Tesla and Steinmete were the other three. Lamme and Steinmetz are gone. A master of electrical science, Lamme was creator of 150 useful in ventions, and called "the greatest mathematician. At his work as chief engineer for the Westinghouse Company, Lamme was helped by two sisters, one with a desk beside his was chief designer of direct current motors. Those two sisters worked with their brother, as the sisters of Her schel and Renan worked with their famous brothers. Such work is better than the fame that passes with the death notice. Of all the news today, for perman ent value nothing is more important than the importation by the stato of Ohio of seven thousand wasps from France. These peculiar French wasps are brought here to fight the corn borer. They and their children's children might save the country hun dreds of millions a year. United States ceases issuing Treas ury savings certificates and stamps that have paid 44 per cent. The gov ernment can borrow money from big banks and financiers at a lower rate. So why pay 44 per cent to the little people? What about the high minded, mag nificent, unselfish, patriotic desire to "cultivate thrift in the masses?" Did that die suddenly when jnterest rates fell? Did the Government want to help the masses, or only want the savings of the masses? The prosperity outlook is cheerful, even for farmers, something that couldn't be said a few weeks ago. "Ten dollar pork," which means $10 a hundred for hogs on the hoof, is in sight, That's due to the high price of corn. Pork is corn trans formed in the pig's digestive appar atus. Farmers that raise the pork also raise the corn. They'll get the money. And cattle are going up. ENGAGEMENT ANNOUNCED.
