Let's All "Rally 'Round the Flag"
Jational Defense Day
THE President of the United States has
designated tomorrow, September 12th,
as National Defense Day, when America
as a Unit will pledge renewed allegiance
to Flag and Country.
At no time in America's history, has there
been greater need for public manifestation of
Loyalty to the Flag. Within our own gates there
are those who would destroy the very heart and
principles of our government. From without,
there is no immediate need for concern, but as
long as hates and jealousies exist in the hearts
of other nations, the possibiliy of war is ever
Mindful of the dangers that might confront
us, we must be PREPARED TO DEFEND the
ideals for which the Fathers of this Republic so
valiantly fought. We must keep faith with those
of our defenders who have so unselfishly given
their lives that we might continue to live in peace
In this spirit, then, let us Citizens and Pa
triots of Heppner and Morrow County, Ameri
cans all reaffirm our pledge of Loyalty to the
Constitution and to the Defense of our Country
in time of need. Let us stamp Morrow County

Eastern Oregon Football
Classic To Give Thrills
To Many Fans.
Pendleton, Ore., Sept. 11. Two
weeks after Pendleton'a annual class
ic of the west, the Round-Up, has
again become history, Round-Up park
with its spacious grandstand and
bleachers, capable of seating 40,000
persons, will echo and re-echo to the
shrill, staccato bark of football sig
nals as two weeks before it had
echoed and re-echoed to the scream
of wild horses, the bawling of Texas
steers and crack of starters' pistots.
Then, too, there will be the organized
yelling, that only a real college foot
ball . game can produce, with real
cheer leaders, those real "rah! rah!"
boys to lead the partisans in their
rooting . It has become, this annual
football game In Pendleton, aome
thing of a classic itself and this year.
with Whitman and the Oregon Aggies
scheduled to tangle in a battle for
gridiron supremacy October 3, will
be no exception to the rule.
The game is of special interest for
several reasons. In the first place
it is Paul J. Schissler's debut as a
coast conference coach and Schissler
should be a wonder in this or any
other conference. While at Lombard
college Schissler established himself
as one of the coming coaches of the
country. His light team, drawn from
a student body having but 148 men
enrolled, was known as "The Red
Tornado". and the tornado blew over
some of the strongest elevens in the
Another reason that makes the O.
A. C.-Whitman game particularly in
teresting is the fact that this is the
first A(rgie appearance in Pendleton
since before the war when the 0. A.
C machine joined battle with Tom
Kelly's Idaho juggernaut.
The game promises to be a real
one, that Whitman-O. A. C. tilt here
Oct. 8, for little Whitman is always
well up in the running in the early
reason games and can give any wes
tern school a real battle at that time
of the year. Of course it is impos-
ible to say what O. A. C. will do
hut one thing is certain and that is
that the Oregon Aggies will have a
real attack this year. Even though
it be an early season tilt, fans who
journey to Pendleton will see Schiss
ler unfold an attack that will threat
en to pierce the Whitman lines, for
"oftVnMve is one of the main words
in Schissler's vocabulary.
Schissler playa Notre Dame foot
ball, which means a lot of snappy end
runs mixed in with sparkling for
ward passes and totally unexpected
line bucks. It is a surprise attack
and one that keeps the spectators at
attention for the unexpected is al
ways happening wherever Notre
Dai.e football is played. Schissler
has a splendid nucleus of former
football stars from which to form
his team while Nig Borleske, though
putting out bear stories, is certain
to hiive a real team in the field for
Oregon Is Benefitted by
National Forest Receipts
Oregon is second in the list of
states benefitting: financially from the
return of -National Forest receipts,
according to information just receiv
ed at the office of the District For
ester, Portland. Oregon.
Under act of congress, one fourth
of all money received by the Forest
Service from timber sales, summer
hcirente leases, grazing permits and
other miscellaneous uses is returned
directly to the counties in which Na
tional Forests are located to -be spent
by them for roads and schools. An
additional 10 per cent of such re
ceipts is made available for use on
forest roads and trails. This is In
addition to the heavy expenditure
made directly by the Federal Gov
ernment on the cooperative road pro
These so-called 10 per cent and
25 per cent funds are In lieu of taxes
on the lands under National Forest
management. Unlike-the taxes a
cruing from many other timberlands.
which produce one crop , and are then
left standing idle and useless, the Na
tional Forest lands are producing
greater contributions each year, and
will continue to do so, as they are
handled on a basis of continuous pro
duction, according to Forest officers.
This is illustrated by the increase
in Oregon where the returns to the
state and counties under the 26 per
cent fund have increased from $7,
68B.96 the first year, in 1906, to $176,-
943.77 in the fiscal year 1024. In 1906
and 1907 the road and school return
was only 10 per cent of the receipts,
being raised to 25 per cent in fiscal
year 1908. Under the present 10 per
cent fund, which began in fiscal year
1912 the returns have increased from
$17,023.81 in 1912 to $70,777.51 in fis
cal year 1924.
During the period these two acts
have been in operation Oregon's re
ceipts from the 25 per cent fund
have been $1,446,438.18 and under the
10 per cent fund, $513,673.51.

Try-Outs for Entrants
In Rodeo Next Sunday
On Sunday next at Rodeo grounds
will be held a .try-out of horses for
the coming events of Heppner's big
round-up. This will be for the pur
pose of determining what horses will
be eligible for the events, and it is
expected that a goodly number of
the worst buckers and "outlaws" of
this section will be presented in
these preliminaries. Those having
horses they wish to get on the Rodeo
program should have them here on
Sunday, the 14th, for these try-outs.
The grounds have been put in ex
cellent shape for the big entertain
ment, according to the management.
Most of the outside stock has already
arrived, including the Peterson string
of some 20 head of horses from
Ukiah, and all the Rodeo stock is on
the field. The track is in the beat
of condition. It is anticipated by the
management that the Rodeo will be
a bigger and better event than here
tofore, and there will be plenty of
good entertainment for hte crowds
that are expected to be in attendance
during each of the three days.
