BOY SCOUT TROOP
, 1 i
Lodges and Legion Join
In Giving Boys Support
of the Community.
Citizens' Advisory Council Formed to
Give Assistance; Milton W.
Bower Is Scoutmaster.
Shortly many Heppner boys' will
again be proudly wearing the uniform
of the Boy Scouts of America, the re
sult of the effort of local fraternal
and other organizations which cul
minated this week in the organization
of the Citizens' Boy Scout Advisory
Council. And after more than a year
of inactivity a smile of gladness has
bespread the countenances of old and
new members of the scout troop, In
being allowed the privilege of donning
the scout uniform, and participating
in the w6rk and pleasure it signifies.
The recent agitation to get the
scouts going once more was brought
to a head last Thursday evening when
members of Boy Scout committees of
various lodges and American Legion
heeded the call of H. J. Hickerson,
representing the Knights of Pythias,
and met at the Heppner Hotel. As
evidence of the whole-hearted desire
to have an active Boy Scout troop in
Heppner, it was unanimously voted
that the members of the committees
present at this meeting form them
selves into a permanent organization,
to be given the name of Citizens' Boy
Scout Advisory Council, and as such
take the steps necessary to starting
and successfully maintaining a Boy
To this end Milton W. Bower, pastor
of the Church of Christ, was unani
mously elected scoutmaster, and a
meeting was arranged with the boys
at the schoolhouse Monday afternoon.
A large number of boys attended this
meeting with the Citizens' Advisory
Council and signified their willingness
and desire to become Boy Scouts,
whereupon Mr. Bower immediately ar
ranged to have two more meetings to
carry out the work of preliminary or
ganization. Represented In the Citizens' Boy
Scout Advisory Council to date art
the Knights of Pythias, Elks, Odd Fel
lows and American Legion, and the
hope has been expressed that other
orders of the city will join in, making
the support unanimous. James M.
Burgess, superintendent of schools,
is president of the council and Jasper
Crawford, secretary. Those present
were Harold Cohn, representing Elks
and American Legion; H. J. Hicker
son, deputy Grand Chancellor Com
mander, Chas. Thomson, W. 0. Dix
and Chas. Jones' representing K, of
P.; Jas. M. Burgess, school and Amer
ican Legion; Jeff Jones, I. 0. 0. F.;
Miltdh W. Bower, Church of Christ,
and Jasper Crawford, newspaper rep
resentative. In bringing the organization of the
scouts to a head, orders represent
ed in the council have pledged their
support through their representatives,
and it is hoped that by this means a
program can be worked out whereby
each order will have a separate and
distinct part in helping the Boy
Scouts and at the same time work in
harmony. Harold Cohn,, represent
ing the Elks and American Legion,
asked that the privilege be reserved
for the Elks to take the boys to and
from their summer camps, as they
have done heretofore.
In like manner other organizations
will have a part, such as giving smo
kers and entertainments for the
scouts during the winter and at such
times as they cannot be actively en
gaged in their own work,
Mr. Cohn expressed the sentiment
of the advisory council in a talk be
fore the boys at the school, in which
it was promised that they should have
a club house of their own and be pro
vided with the equipment and funds
necessary to have a live organization.
Mr. Bower is already getting the boys
into action, and has chosen Tuesday
evenings for the regular meetings,
Supt. Burgess to Remain
At Heppner Next Year
At a meeting of the board of edu
cation on Wednesday evening, the
question of retaining Jas. M. Burgess
at the hesd of our schools for another
year, was taken up, it being under
stood that he had an offer to go to
another field. By unanimous action
of the board Mr. Burgess was elected
to remain at the head of the Heppner
schools for another year, and has con
sented to do so. '
Under the direction of Supt. Bur
gess the school has made fine progress
so far this year, and by his reelection
at this time he will be able to more
fully carry out plans for the future
work that he has in mind, and which
has the support of the school board.
The corps of teachers for the coming
year will be chosen at an early date.

to Have Dr. Spillman
The Eastern Oregon Wheat con
ference at Moro, February 11 to 13,
is to have the cooperation of the fed
eral department of agriculture, as
well as the state college extension
and station specialists.
W. J. Spillman, consulting econ
omist of the federal bureau of agri
cultural economics, will attend to
consult with the growers and their
committees on various phases of their
problems, chiefly in those of farm
management and of world supply and
demand of wheat. Dr. Spillman has
for the last several years directed
the moBt searching investigations in.
these factors of economical produc
tion and comes prepared to place his
findings at the disposal of the grow
ers. Although now at the national cap
ital Dr. Spillman gave much of his
early life to the solution of western
problems. He made a specialty f
western range grasses while teaching
science at the Oregon State Normal
school and later conducted investiga
tion of ranges for the government.
He then went to Washington State
college as head of the agronomy de
partment, and engaged in extensive
wheat breeding. One result of his
work is the famous Hybrid 128, much
used in the west.
When called to join the department
of agriculture he was made chief
uis'touomist. Later he orjanied the
'farm management section and direct
ed its early Investigations. Since
being made consulting economist he
has probed its early production costs
and supply at home and abroad, and
is considered the country's leading
authority on these matters. He is
coming not to make speeches but to
confer with the growers and give
them the benefit of his information.
Another source of cooperation by
the government is the bureau of ag
ricultural statistics now at work
with L. R. Breithaupt of the college
extension service in collecting and
arranging data on the world's sup
ply, demand, and tendencies in pro
duction and consumption. The, fig
ures will be tabulated and charted by
the department experts in such man
lier as to make their significance
readily plain to the growers in their
work of projecting a program.

Charles Latourell was elected pres
ident, Leonard Gilliam, secretary and
Frank Shively, assistant field secre
tary, at a meeting-of the. Heppner
Rod and Gun club last night. The
club expects to become active at
once; and take part in the state shoot

will be taken to put the club ground.!
and clubhouse in shape, and neces
sary supplies ordered.
The club also passed a resolution
to be sent to the state fish and game
commission, expressing the sentiment
of the club that those parts of Big
and " Little Butter creek, recently
closed to fishing for a ten year per
iod by the commission, be reopened.
In the opinion of the club the condi
tions under which, the commission
has a right to close streams to fishing,
do not exist in the case of the
streams mentioned, and they have
considered it an unjust procedure.

State Chamber Reports Many
Counties Waking Up to De
Looking forward to the opening of
Northeastern Oregon to new settlers,
an enlivened interest is being taken
at the present time by the Biue moun

Arthur Foster, manager of the
Land Settlement department of the
Portland Chamber of Commerce, has
just returned fromia three day trip
into this section of t'.ie state and re

in Wallowa and Union counties.
On Tuesday last, Mr. Foster met
with the Union County Chamber cf
Commerce at La Grande, and in the
evening of the same day attended a
meeting with the Union county agri
cultural committee at Hot Lake.
On Wednesday, January 20th, the

On Thursday, January 21st, a meet
ing was held with the Wallowa cham

Mr. Foster reports that Wallowa
county is greatly in favor of the state
wide development plan for new set
tlers. Interest is also being taken
in Baker and Union counties for the
formation of new irrigation districts
in that Bection.
"More than ever before the land
settlement idea has hit Eastern Ore
gon," said Foster. "Incredible' per
haps that a Miami breeze has wafted
its way to the Pacific Nothwest, yet
the great land east of the Cascades
is awakening to the fact that there
are millions of acres of wonderful
soil within its borderB to be claimed
and reclaimed. We are looking for

progress in that recently opened dis

Those of you who saw "When a
Feller NeeSs a Friend" last year may
expect something even better than
that in "A Poor Married Man," which
is a farce comedy of the most laugh
A professor marries a charming
young lady whose mother insists on
accompanying the pair on their hon
eymoon, much to the disgust of the
groom. His friends mistake the moth
er for the bride and relate to the pro
fessor sundry escapades of the moth
er's husband and her daughter. Pro
fessor Wise naturally thinks they .ar
referring to his wife instead of her
mother. A dashing college boy and
a pretty reporter add to the profes
sor s growing suspicions. Finally he
becomes convinced that his wife
means to poison him. The bride, who
has married the professor at her
mother's instigation, learns that she
really loves Billy, and when the moth
er learns that Billy is wealthy and
that he is in love with her daughter,
she determines to divorce the profes
sor from Zoie. She is successful in
this and in the first instance mar
riage is proved to be a failure. The
professor marries again and selects
a girl who will not encumber him with
a mother-in-law, but to his horror
her innocent old father is trapped
into a marriage with the woman who
caused all bis former troubles, and
Mts. Iona Ford once more becomes
the professor's mother-in-law. But
Billy, who has been on a trip around
the world, has located Mrs. Ford's or

happily and all pronounce marriage
