Full Program For Three
Days Replete With
BUCKING BEST YET
Large Outlaw String on Hand and
Many Riders Coming; Carnival
to Aid In Entertaining.
With the opening of Heppner'a wild
weit show one week away alt prepar
arationi for its presentation are being
rapidly completed and the committee
in charge declarea there will be no
doubt about the superior excellence of
this year's Rodeo. A full program of
amusement features for the three
days, September 26, 26 and 27, will be
the order next week and.
To start with there will be the big
show itself, beginning at 2:30 each
afternoon and lasting till after 5. It
will include bucking contests, races
of every description, wild steer and
calf roping contests and other sports
dear to the cowboy's heart. The buck
ing contests will undoubtedly hold
the center of the stage and for this
part of the performance a greater ar
ray of talent has been provided than
ever before. Tryoutn were held last
Friday and Sunday and nearly all the
outlaws rode qualified for the big
show. Among those which are sure
to take part are John Day, Poverty
Flat, Colored Boy, Maul Cat, Troubles,
Miss Wiggles, Wickieup, Lookout,
Butter Creek, Whiskey" Gulch, Can
yon City, Crown Point and Steamboat.
Practically all of the riders in last
year's Rodeo will vie for honors again
this year. Jack Terry, champion, will
be "up" as well as Dolf Brown, who
took second money, Lloyd Matteson, '
Moore, Reed and others. Five riders
will come from Ukiah, two from John
Day and two from Fossil to try to
cop the priie at our show. At the
tryouts Sunday, Arch Cox and George
Elder were disqualified by pulling
leather, while Albert Wilkinson and
Vinton bit the dust, going off Bill
Morrow and Slippery respectively.
Ralph Reed was thrown by a big bay
mare, but qualified on Fred Crump.
Miss Alice Rictmann of lone has
been chosen queen to reign supreme
for the three days, and this beautiful
young woman on her stately mount
will head the parade each day. The
Condon band will be on hand Friday
and Saturday to liven things up with
the blare of horn and beat of drum.
The band will also bring along their
orchestra to furnish music for the
big '49 dance at the fair pavilion each
Then the kiddies, as well as their
elders will find a source of delight
between times at the carnival shows,
concessions, merry-go-round, etc.,
which will hold forth at the fair
grounds each of the three days. This
feature assures visitors ot the 1924
Rodeo that they will have no idle
moments. The big '49 dance ewch
evening will serve an a fitting climax
for each day's program, with its
round of rythm, mirth and cheer.
Maybe the stuff served over the bar
won't have as much kick in it as it
did in '49, but it will be refreshing,
That Heppner citizens may be giv
en a chance to show their metal in

rules and regulations as it may deem

Patron -Teach era 8ponaor Pleasing
Entertainment at Christian
A reception under the auspices of
the Patron-Teachers association was
tendered the' teachers of the Heppner
schools at the parlors of the Chris
tian church on Saturday evening. The
attendance was not as large as the
P.-T. association had a right to ex
pect, but nevertheless a good time
was had and the evening was greatly
enjoyed by those present.
One delightful thing about the re
ception was its lack of formality. A
short program had been prepared and
this was rendered very acceptably.
There was a solo by Harvey Miller,
piano duet by Mrs. Moore and Miss
Loughney, a vocal solo by Misa Kath
leen Monahan, and a whistling solo
by Miss Elizabeth Phelps. Then
the game of "Travel" was introduced
and sixteen tables were filled, four
to the table, and an interesting and
social time was had while the players,
who included most of those present,
"progressed" on a journey that took
them to many points of interest about
the world. This game of "Travel"
was originated by Mrs. C. W. Shurte,
and she has certainly hit upon a
splendid method of "mixing up" a
crowd while furnishing them delight
ful amusement. Prizes Were awarded
at the end of the game aceording to
the points made during the travel
of the participants. First prize went
to V. Crawford, second to Mrs. Brara
er and the consolation to Mrs. Jeff
As refreshments punch was served
and the ladies of the P.-T. A. are to
be congratulated on the success of
the evening's entertainment, while
the new teachers in our school were
made to feel that they have a cordial
welcome to the city where their lot
is cast for the next nine months,
Special Train Takes

A special train of 43 double deck

on Tuesday, bearing a shipment of

The shipment consisted largely of
lambs, and the stock had been pur

DEFENSE DAY IS
School Children and Citizens In
Parade; Appropriate Services
Are Held at Pavilion.
National Defense Test Day was fit
tingly observed at Heppner on last
Friday and the big pavilion at the
fair grounds was filled to capacity
with the patriotic citizens of the
community to listen to the program
that had been prepared by the com
mittee in charge.
Promptly at 10:80 a. m., the parade
formed at the First National Bank
and marched to the pavilion. The
pupils of the Heppner school to the
number of nearly four hundred, led
off, followed by the fraternal orders
and citizens. No attempt had been
made to do anything spectacular and
the marchers passed quietly down the
street to the pavilion which was rap
The program at the pavilion was
in charge of Frank Gilliam' as chair
man and master of ceremonies. Mr.
Gilliam had also taken charge of the
"enlistment rolls" and succeeded in
getting a very large portion of the
male citizenship signed up as "sol
diers for a day," and this list was
forwarded to headquarters at Salem
as evidence of the fact that the pa
triotic spirit at Heppner Is practically
100 per cent.
The main feature on the program at
the pavilion was the address delivered
by Calvin L. Sweek. Having been
drafted for this task at a late hour,
Mr. Sweek did not have the time to
give his subject the attenion that he
would have desired, but nevertheless
he handled the topic of the day in a
splendid manner and there was no
doubt whatever that all present got
the proper view of why National De
fense Test Day was being observed.
Mr. Sweek is no advocate of war; he
deplores the fact that It It ever neces
sary for nations to fight each other;
but that point has not yet been
reached in the affairs of nations when
they can sit down at the arbitration
board and peacefully settle their dif
ficulties. Neither is he an advocate
of a large standing army and a big
navy; yet he believes that there
should be sufficient arms of defense
maintained by the United States that
other countries will know and feel
that they cannot take advantage of
such a situation as confronted this
nation in 1917. Tha pacifists of this
country no doubt have a very fine
theory, but it is not practical, and
would in the end accomplish just the
result that they do not desire. Sane
preparedness on the part of our gov
ernment is good, common sense and
a proper deterrent to any nation of
people who would seek to invade our
shores or force ua into war. It will
prove the best preventative and in
the end will be the cheapest Mr.
Sweek also 'brought out the fact that
we are facing a situation with Japan
in the Far East that will have to be
handled very carefully if that country
does not later take the initiative that
may involve us in serious trouble.
There are still wars and rumors of
wars. The United States has no de
signs on any nation, seeks no addi
tional territory and greatly desires
peace with the entire world. We
Bhould be sufficiently prepared to
maintain this position, which ulti
mately, it is hoped, will bring about
the peace of the world.
The address of Mr. Sweek was not
long, but It was pointed, and the
round of applause he received was
evidence of the fact that what he
did say met with hearty approval.
A male quartet, composed of Dean
T. Goodman, M. D. Clark, Harold Case
and Frank Turner furnished music
and ted in the singing of America
and the Star Spangled Banner, the
audience joining in singing of the
patriotic songs, and Miss Denn pre
sided at the piano.
The halute to the flag was then
given and the audience was dismissed.
Has First Meet of Year
The first meeting for the new
school year of the Patron-Teachers
association was held on Tuesday af
ternoon at the auditorium in the high
school building, and it was quite well
The president, Mrs. Guy Boyer,
presided and Mrs, John Miller acted
A short musical program was given
by way of entertainment, Mrs. C. L.
Sweek rendering a piano solo and Pa
tricia Mahoney and Marjorie Clark
giving vocal solos. This was follow
ed by the regular business session,
during which Mrs. Boyer gave a very
interesting and instructive outline of
the work that the association should
undertake in behalf of the school for
the coming year.
It was decided to use what money
the association had on hand to pro
cure proper screening of the base
ment windows of the school building.
This work will be done at an early
date and will prove of much benefit
in tha prevention of window breaking,
Program, social and decorating
committees were appointed at this
meeting and other necessary commit
tees will be announced later. Mrs,
Frank Turner is chairman of the pro

States Which Lie Between These Territories.
If it were possible to know just
what the "border" states are go
ing to do on election day, then
forecasting the result of the com
ing national cnotest would be a
much simpler matter, for seeming
ly upon the border states will be
the great battle ground on which J
the national election will be won.
So far as the solid south is con
cernedand the solid south really
embraces Virginia, No. Carolina,
So. Carolina, Georgia, Florida,
Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana,
Texas and Arkansas every think
ing man will concede it to Davis.
Coolidge and La Follette may cut
down majorities here-and there,
but this will not affect the elector
al vote. Thus Mr. Davis starts off
with 114 votes, or 21 per cent of
the whole, 531.
Now let it be remembered that
266 are necessary to a choice.
This is the figure that sticks in
the crop and seems to make it
highly probable that La Follette
may dictate the presidency though
he has small chance of election.
Just as Davis ia certain of the
South, so iB Coolidge sure in the
East, and so at present is La Follette
in the Northwest.
Wisconsin, Iowa, Nebraska, Min

One of the important considera
tions is what may be termed the
"border" states. They are those
states lying between the North and
South. They are Delaware, Maryland,
West Virginia, Tennessee, Kentucky,
Missouri, and Oklahoma.
Davis is a "border southerner" and
may have the knack of particular ap
peal to the people there. If he should
win in all of these states the sum
total would be 72 votes, making his
grand total 186. Then granting to

La Follette followers declare they
will carry Ohio and maybe Michigan.
La Follette has the Scripp-Howard
newspapers in Ohio, and it is possi
ble that the six such powerful news
papers working for him will give him
a chance of carrying the state. In
the West are also many Scripp-Howard
newspapers; and also the Hearst
