and Prominent In Local Affairs
C. E. Woodson, prominent citizen
of Heppner and a leading attorney
here for many years, answered death's
call at St. Vincent's hospital in Fort
land on Monday evening at 7:20, fol
lowing an Illness of something over a
year, but which did not take a really
serious turn until within the last few
months. Death was the result of in
ternal complications arising out of
the general breakdown in his health
during the past year.
Mr. Woodson had been a resident
of Heppner for nearly twenty-five
years, coming here as a young man
shortly following his graduation as
a lawyer at. the University of Ore
gon. During all the years of his res-
Idence in this city he had enjoyed a
splendid law practice and was quite
successful in business affairs. He
was prominent in all matters pertain
ing to the welfare of the community
and stood high as a cititen. At the
time of his death, Mr. Woodson was
one of the regents of the University
of Oregon, an institution that was
always his pride and for which he
gave much time and attention in all
its affairs. He was also a member of
the board of education of this city,
and had served many years as a di
rector and clerk of the district at
Mr. Woodson was weH known over
the state, and especially through the
Eastern Oregon section. He served
in the legislative assembly of 1921 as
Joint representative of Morrow and
Umatilla counties and was accredited
with being one of the very hardest
workers in that body, being at the
head of the judiciary committee In
the house. It is stated that the hard
work Mr. Woodson did at this session
of the legislature was in a large
measure responsible for his break

friends noted a decline which he ap

The appointment of Mr. Woodson
as one of the regents of the Univer

and he served faithfully in that po
sition, helping greatly In the shaping
of the policies that have brought the

years. A number of years ago he

Lexington and lone
Play to 6 to 6 Tie
A fnat football game was played
between Lexington and lone high
school on tho Lexington gridiron
last Saturday afternoon, in which
neither team wns able to emerge the
victor. In the first half it looked
like Lexington's game, they kept the
bail in lone territory moot of the
time and bad the long end of the
score at mid-game, 6-0, Jn the sec
ond half, however, lone cam back
with ft series of line bucks whloh
carried the ball across, and from
then on the game was Hp and tuck,
Neither side kicked goal, according
to the referee's decision, Both teams
showed signs fo good coaching and
few bobbles were made.
Next Saturday the fast, light lone
team will come to Heppner and from
the atuff they showed at Lexington
they ought to make things interest
ing for the locals.
FULL OF LAUGHS
"Hold That Line, Jimmy" Will Be
Presented by Local Students
at Star Next Monday.
Something especially good in the
way of comedy is promised for next
Monday afternoon and evening when
the senior class of the high schoul
will present "Hold That Line, Jimmy,'"
a modern farce in three acts, each of
which is funnier than the preceding
one, at the Star theater here.
The plot, which is distinctly dif
ferent and clever, deals with the
complications which 'arise from the
circumstance of having an extreme
ly unaggressive president at the head
of an equally aggressive college. How
this president, Jimmy Graham, as
played by Jim Thomson, changes his
ideas and tactics and becomes quite
in keeping with the spirit tf the
school is what makes the play inter
esting. That is, it's one of the things
that make it interesting. There are
several, not the least of which is the
work of Margaret Prophet as Ara
bella Washington, oeok of the col
lege, who attempts to cure the "in
feloctty zootex" of the president and
at the same time to convince the
world at large that football is a
gambling device of the deepest dye.
Arabella is irrestible, and her part
alone will be worth traveling a long
way to see.
Other members of the cast, all of
whom play their roles well, are Crock
et Sprouls, as Jerry Travis, a friend
of Graham's and very different from
him in temperment; Nellie Babcock
as .Shirley Allen, niece pf Jasper AU
len, president of the school board;
John Turner as Allen himself; Earl
Merritt as Chubby, captain of the
football team whose whole world re-.
; volves around the energetic Marjie,
; played by Velma Fell; and Flossie,
: the champion candy-consumer of the
; nchool, portrayed by Irene Lovgren.

Good Figures Are Obtained, and

At Portland on the 28th, the state

the Oregon-Washington highway. The
entire distance to be graded is 15.1

is understood that there was some
