Game at Pendleton Oct. 3 Only
Intercollegiate Contest in
Eastern Oregon This Year.
Pendleton, Ore., Sept. 22. With re
ports from Whitman indicating that
Nig Borleske is putting In the field
one of the strongest teams that has
represented the Missionaries on the
gridiron in years, eastern Oregon
fans are preparing to view one of
the best college gamea ever played
in this section when O. A. C. and
Whitman tangle in Round-Up park
Friday, October 8.
So impressed Is Coach Paul J.
Schissler with the formidable line-up
that Whitman ia getting together,
that unusually heavy practice ses
sions are even now going forward
behind closed gates at Corvallis.
Schissler though handicapped by his
unfamiliarity with his players, will
put a strong team in the field If he
can. Schissler uses the Notre Dame
system of play and fana who come to
Pendleton to see the Aggies do their
stuff may expect to see a real offen
sive released by the new Red and
Black mentor.
Of course the customary thing for
big league coaches in their early sea
son practice games Is to hold their
stuff In reserve out of respect to the
keen eyes of rival scouts who are al
ways present in the stands, but this
yar, judging from the early season
strength at Whitman, Schissler will
be forced to use all his stuff if he is
to win. That of course is hard on
the coaches but it is apple sauce for
the fans and they are sure of seeing
a real game.
Reports from Whitman indicate
real strength. In the first place, for
the first time in history, Nig Borleske
has an assistant. "Cody" Cox, one
of the great Whitman athletes for
all time will help Nig tutor the Maize
and Blue Into shape.
Despite early bearish rumors it Is
evident that Borleske has a quorum
of experienced football stars on hand
from which to build his 1924 machine.
Outstanding among his veterans is
Earl Tilton, rangy halfback who play
ed in 1922 and was the sensation of
the northwest. Other heady back
field men are Hall, Tilton, Lackey and
Franks, while there is a lingering
hope in Walla Walla that "Corky"
Comkrum diminutive quarter, may be
back to take over the signal calling.
The line seems to be Nig's big prob
lem but with a lot of experienced
material and a bunch of newcomers
that look good Borleske should have
a line that will match his speedy set
of backs.
As for 0. A. C, it Is certain the
famous Aggie defense will not be
lacking and coupled with the famous
attack that Schissler's followers, who
are familiar with his style of play,
say will be on deck, Nig's men will
have to go hard to put across a win.
The Aggie backfield looks good with
Price, Boy kin, O arbor. Bell and Mc
Cart, while Schulmerich, Ireland and
Mattson of the rooks are going to
push the let term en hard for these
A host of material turned out for
line positions at the opening of the
season but Schissler now has that
group down to about 20 including the
veterans Carpenter, Tebb, Mose Ly
man, Micklewait and Johnson. Sev

Home-Grown Tomatoes
Best on Heppner Market
The very finest tomatoes on the
Heppner market are those brought to
town from the garden of C. W. Val
entine of Sourdough canyon. Mr.
Valentine raises the tomatoes in large
aasntities and they excel those that
are shipped in, being perfectly
smooth, of fine quality and firmness
and possessing a flavor that appeals
to the taste. The tomatoes are sown
broadcast. In the garden of Mr. Val
entine and come to maturity without
much irrigation. There is an excel
lent spring on the Valentine place
that has never been known to dry
up, and this furnishes all the water
that is required for the raising of
an excellent garden each year. Char
ley states that in the 40 years he
has known this spiing, there has nev
er been any vnriat.on in the flow of
the water.
George Davis, a sheepherder, who
for the past several months has been
living in Heppner, died on Friday
night at the Bucknum lodging house.
He had been ill the most of the
summer and not able to work but
was able to be about town, and his de
mise was unexpected. Davis had
worked for several different sheep
men of this county and was known
as an honest and industrious man
who gave good service to his employ
ers. His funeral was held on Tues
day, No near relatives reside in this
state, and he was supposed to have
a sister residing in the east who
could not be reached. Various sheep
men here for whom Mr. Davis had
worked, looked after his burial, and
Wallace Jones, pastor of the Chris
tian church at Lexington, officiated
at the grave, Davis was 68 years of
age and had resided in this county
for the last 18 years.

That the nation which invented

More appropriate would be adequate

as a "wealthy, retired banker, phil

der the care of two doctors. His two
daughters eloped, one with a chauf

ceive such a blow is painful, but in
his sorrow there is warning and com

One of the daughters was thirty
one years of age; she and her sister,
twenty-four, had been kept secluded.
Beware how you keep daughters too
secluded, especially after thirty, and
MORE especially if they are rich in
their own right, as are these two
young women!
That's the warning.

Distinguished gentlemen gave a
dinner to General Pershing in New
York. It was a nice dinner. General
Pershing's share must have cost sixty
cents in the market and nine dollars
delivered on the table.
As a dinner, it was a success. But
as a reward for a general that com

faithfully for many years before that,
it was not much. General Pershing
is now retired on a salary big en

There is nothing the matter with

Completion of 0.-W.
Highway To Be Urged
That the completion of the Oregon
Washington highway may be more
successfully urged upon the state
highway commission a committee of
Heppner business men was organized
at a meeting of citizens of this city
held on Monday evening. This meet
ing was attended by business men of
the town, and after some discussion
it was decided that a permanent com
mittee be chosen to work in conjunc
tion with the members of the county
court and assist that body in getting
the claims for completion of this
highway properly before the highway
commission and the government for
estry officials.
W. P. Mahonty, C. L. Sweek and
Dean T. Goodman were chosen on the
committee, and these gentlemen ex
pressed their willingness to cooper
ate with the members of the county
court in every possible way. They
will thoroughly inform themselves
with regard to the situation pertain
ing to the completion of the Lena
Vinson gap and be prepared to put
forth the srtongest arguments pos
sible why the Oregon-Washington
highway should be finished at the
earliest possible date.
There is the usual monthly meet
ing of the state highway commission
in Portland today. At this meeting
will be opened a number of bids for
work on various state roads. Judge
Campbell and Commissioner David
son expect to be in Portland and will
attend this meeting In order to get
in touch with the proceedings, but
it will not likely be necessary that
members of the newly chosen commit

Judge Campbell and Commissioner
Davidson are doing all they can to
keep lined up with the situation and
they are hopeful that the state high
way commissioners will be able to
figure out how they can get by with
the job of completing the Lena-Vin-lon

Judge Campbell Is informed by Judge

A total of 29 is now enrolled.

be an argument in favor of Mr.

Dairy Industry Asks
Protection of Voters
In a letter being sent out by George
A. Palmiter, president of the Oregon
State Grange, a few pertinent facts
about what would happen to the
dairying industry in this state if the
referendum to knock out protection
of butter against cheap substitutes
passed by the voters, are clearly
stated. Mr. Palmiter says:
Dairying has been about the only
branch of agriculture that has return
ed a profit to the farmers of Oregon !
for the past three or four years, and !
the last legislature passed a law pro- j
hibiting the use of milk or its pro
ducts in the manufacture of butter
substitutes in order to protect this
The referendum has been invoked
on this law. A few concerns want to;
make big profits at the expense of
the farmers by putting a counterfeit,
butter on the market, using a small
per cent of milk products to give it
the taste and odor of real butter, and
selling it for "something just as
The argument in the state pamph
let makes the moan that the anti-;
oleo law prohibits the manufacture of
oleo in Oregon. It does not. It sim
ply requires that oleo stand on its
own merits; that there shall be no
fraud, no counterfeit, that the manu
facturers shall not doctor up their
copra and vegetable oil products with
milk products and undermine the
dairy market and drive thousands of
cows off the farms.
About iy million pounds of oleo
will be sold in Oregon this year,
about h made in this state and the
balance shipped in. It would require
approximately 14,000 cows to supply
this amount of real butter. Now,
which would be of the most benefit
to the state, the profits of a half
dozen oleo makers or the addition of
14.000 cows to the dairy farms of
Oretron. with the industries that
would be supported by this addition?
Oregon will never be permanently
prosperous until farming is prosper
ous. Our chamber of commerce, rail
roads and other organizations are
expending big sums of money to build
up farming and bring in new resi
dents. Doesn't it seem that the ad
dition of 14,000 dairy cows to the
present farms was worth the effort
of voting for?
And bear this in mind, you friends
of ngriculture: If you would vote out
the spurious butter, vote 'yes" on
the referendum. There seems to be
general confusion regarding this. The
proposition is whether or not to sus
tain the present law. If you would
sustain it, and prohibit the manu
facturers from using milk in their oil
products to make it pass as butter,
vote ' YES."
Beginning with trie tirst Sunday in
October the order of service at the
Church of Christ in Lexington will
be changed. The morning service
will begin at 10 with the Bible school
session, continuing without intermis
sion into the church service and clos

will begin promptly at 7:30.

A student body meeting was held
Friday, Sept. 12. The purpose of this
meeting was to clear any old busi
ness which might have been left un
finished last spring.
At this meeting the pennant tra
dition was read and explained to the
freshmen. It was also decided that
the freshman boys should clear the
weeds off the football field the fol
lowing Monday. (We roust say that
they are good workers.)
We have a lively freshman class
this year. They even had something
to say at the student body meeting,
which is unusual for freshmen.
Kathleen McDaid has been appoint
ed yell leader to take Marguerite His
ler's place.
A student euuncil meeting was
held September 16 and at this meet
ing the Hehisch staff was elected. It
consists entirely of boys. They seem
to think girl's shouldn't hold offices.
Victor Lovgren is editor-in-chief,
Vawter Parker is business manager
and Austin Smith and James Thom
son are assistant editors.
The seniors have chosen Austin
Smith, Byron Johnson and Harold
Becket for judges in the pennant
scrap. We are all anxious for the
scrap to come off as we think it will

Football! Football! It is about all
we hear around the school house be

of the girls have begun to wish they
could play. Heppner Hi has never be

except those from whom they picked
i the first team. This year, however,
they have been able to provide two
coaches and this makes it possible
for more to turn out. We now have
two strings of eleven besides the
varsity, which is coached by Mr.
Finch, while the other two line-ups
are coached by Mr. Smith. They hope
to get a game or two this year with
the second team of some other school.
The varsity has a game with Hard-
man set for Friday the 26th.
The seniors held a picnic last Fri
day and in spite of the bad weather
quite a number attended. A good
time was reported by all who went.

97,000 Votes.
Republieana Lead Local Poll With
Independent Candidate a Com
Second ; Democrat Shut Out.
Regardless of hopes, wishes, pre
dictions and a brave whistling of
political leaders as they emhie thru
various graveyards, September Indi
cations concerning our November
election have convinced many keen
students that there will lie many
rurprisca when the last November
vote has been tabulated.
This newspaper's nationwide pres-id-ntial
poll is now into its third
veek of balloting. Through its con
nection with the Publishers Autoeaa
ter Service of New York the Gaiette
Times is cooperating with seven
thousand newspapers published in ev
ery state. Returns from twenty-one
states have been received enough
from each section of the country to
indicate, in a small way at least, the
trend of sentiment there.
Coolidge is running strong in the
East. Davis' strength is in the South.
La Follette, as expected, is strong
est in the North and Northwest. Soma
100,000 votes have been east is thia
trial balloting. The vote is evenly
divided, Coolidge leading with a to
tal of 36,301, La Follette ia second
with 30330, and Davis ia a close
third with 30,551.
This in a way bears out the figures
tabulated by other straw votes. The
Hearst newspaper group, made up of
some fourteen newspapers published
in the principal cities of the nation,
have polled a straw vote of 95,000
ballots. That vote from the cities
show La Follette first with 40,686,
Coolidge second with 37,249, and Dav
is a third with 17,410.
The nation-wide poll in which thia
newspaper ia participating is repre
sentative of the small town and rur
al vote. The Hearst atraw vote is al
most exclusively from the big cities.
Combining thia newspaper's poll
from the country with the Hearst poll,
from the city we have a total of 193,
027 votes divided aa follows: Coolidge,
73,550; La Follette, 71,516, and Davis,
The votes in these polls are of
course popular votea and not exactly
clearly indicative of the electoral
strength of the three candidates.
However, the tabulation of thia news
paper's nation-wide voting by State
to date offers the opportunity of
studying electoral strength.

The local poll this week
Coolidge 11, LaFollette 10, Davis 0.
Viewed from that standpoint it
brings us back to the fact as stated
in these columns before, that the race
is going to be a close one, so close
that the final choice of President may
he thrown to the House or possibly
on into the Senate.
The Literary Digest is conducting
a secret straw vote, but as yet has
made no announcement of returns.
The votes polled by the Digest will
in the majority come from the larger
small towns and the citiea.
Many things may happen between
now and November, any one of which
would switch the vote to make it final
and decisive at the polls. However,
political leaders in all parties are
watching these Presidential polls
closely, and you will be rendering
them a service if you vote in Pres
diential poll and show them the
strength of your respective territory.
If you haven't voted yet, do so today.
Clip out the sample ballot below and
mark an X before the name of the
candidate you want to be the next
Prseident of the United States. Show
your fellow voters in other states
who Orepon wants for President.
