Local Man Dies as Result
of Catching Hand in
BURIAL MADE TODAY
Funeral Services Held by Elks Lodge
This Afternoon; Deceased Was
Native of Morrow County.
The announcement of the sudden
passing of Andrew Rood, Jr., on Tu
esday evening, came as a shock to this
community. Mr. Rood, while at work
with a feed chopper on his farm late
Tuesday afternoon, had the misfor
tune to get his left hand into the
machine and that member was badly
lacerated as a result. The thumh and
third and little finger were taken off
while the other fingers were torn and
lacerated. He was feeding damp hay
into the machine, which was driven
by a Fordson, and the hopper becom
ing clogged, Mr. Rood attempted to
push the hay in with his hand, when
the accident resulted, which proved
to be fatal.
He was immediately rushed to the
office of Dr. McMurdo and while the
injuries were being attended to and
the injured hand cleaned and dressed,
Mr. Rood was placed under an anes
thetic from which he failed to rally
As but few had learned of the acci-
uc.ii., wis ocam or Mr. Koocl came as
a shock to his lelatives and friends.
Funeral services were held this af
ternoon from Elks temple, under the
auspices of Heppner lodge No. 358,
of which he was a member. The beau
tiful service of the order was used,
and a very large concourse of friends
and neighbors turned out to pay their
last tribute of respect. The floral
tffsrings were many and beautiful.
Andrew Rood, Jr., was a native of
Morrow county, born at the old farm
home in Rood canyon. He grew to
manhood here and his home has al
ways been in this community. At the
time of his death he was aged 41
years, 9 months and 2 days. For
many years he has been extensively
engaged in wheatraising on the Rood
lands on Heppner flat, owning a largo
acreage and was considered the largest-operator

No Vaccination of Pupils
At the Heppner Schools
To allay the apparent alarm on the
part of many parents, we are author
ized by Superintendent Burgess to
state that there has been no order
issued for the vaccination of pupils
of the Heppner schools.
While there- has been some few
cases of scarlet fever or scarletina
In town, its spread has so far been
checked. In order to determine how
many of the pupils may have been
exposed. Dr. Johnston, city healtn
officer, made some tests the first of
the week in the primary grades and
it was fuond that three of the little
folks may have been exposed, and
these will be isolated awaiting re
sults. A lot of whooping cough, some
measles, and the few cases of scarlet
ina seem to be the extent of the
contagious diseases that have struck
Heppner so far, and the whooping
cough has well run its course, per
mitting many of the children to re
turn to school again.
League To Meet at Moro
County Agent Morse states that one
of the important meetings to be held
at Moro next week, when the wheat
growers conference gathers there,
will be that of the officers of the Ore
gon Export Commission league' which
will be at 7 p. m. on the evening of
the 12th. All Columbia bnsin wheat
growers are invited to be present.
Legislation now pending before
congress relating to marketing of ex
port surplus crops will be considered,
and a financial statement of expen
ditures of the Export Commission
league will be made. The officers feel
that it is very important that Oregon
wheat farmers re-affirm their stand in
connection with the marketing of ex
port surplus crops, and for this rea
son a large attendance at the meeting
is very much desired.
Not necessarily great wheat produc
tion but more economical production
of wheat through better quality and
yield and in accordance with the ex
isting and prospective wheat sunnlv
and demand of the world, is the aim
of the eastern Oregon wheat confer
ence at Moro next week, February 11
to 13. ,
"If decreased production is desir
able at any tirtie the only safe, sane
and economic way to decrease it is
less acreage and not noorer yields."
says D. E. Shephens, superintendent
oi tne Moro branch experiment sta
tion. "Higher acre yields and lower
production costs are the intelligent
The conference will open with a
general sMsion following registra
tion at Hotel Moro Thursday fore
noon. As soon as the various com
mittees are given charge of their
duties and the work of the organiza
tion committee is explained, the con
ference will resolve itself into the
subcommittees to gather and arrange
the data for their reports.
The work of the subcommittees is
expected to take up most of the time
of the conference, which will be re
assembled as a whole on Saturdav to
near and act upon reports. The rec
ommendations accepted, together with :
conclusions, will be compiled later
for publication by the extension ser
vice. The chairman of the conference, F.
B. Ingles of Dufur, and all chairmen
of the subcommittees but one are
wheat producers in close touch with
the situation. Additional information
will be provided by other members of
the committees, and figures on the
very latest world situation will be
supplied by college and federal spec
ialists cooperating in the work.
L. R. Breithaupt of the extension
service and Dr. W. J. SDillman. con.
suiting economist of the federal de
partment of agriculture, will ' bring
information direct from the national
capital for use of the growers in
mapping out their program. The
gathering itself will be near the heH
of wheat production investigations for
eastern uregon the Sherman county
branch experiment station where
H'uuicta vl image ana culture, va
rieties and strains, disease-resistance

is a continuation of the state-wide
economic conference inaugurated by
Paul V. Maris, director of the college
extension service, in January, 1924.

140 Deaths, $18,200 Profits
Congress is puzzled by surplus
farm products production. Some reck
less bolsheviks, or at lesat socialists,
suggest that the Government might
interest itself in helping farmers mar-
ket their surplus abroad.
Charles Williams, who oue-ht tu
know something about conservatism,
says: "No; that problem should be
left to farmers without eovernment
help." A two-month-old baby might
be left to put on his own undershirt
"without mommer's help." The far
mers would be as well able to deal
with foreign governments, tinder our
Constitution, or with foreien orob-
lems, as a baby would be to deal with
its own nourishment and clothing.
To learn how farmers can be heln-
ed and surplus products sold at a
profit, they might find out what the
British do with their surplus rubber
products. There is a rubber farm
surplus. And you notice that they
manage to sell it to the United States
at about a dollar a pound, when it
could be sold profitably at thirty cents
a pound. A government that wants
to do a thing can do it.

thousands of faithful workers, ask

they should divide prosperity with
