THE BIG MUSICAL
TREAT OF SEASON
300 Local People Seated
In Hotel Dining Room
SCHOOL GYM SUBJECT
Talks on Various Phases Given by
Local Men; Musical Program
The ladies of the Paton-Teachcr as
sociation certainly did themselves
proud at their big chicken supper at
Hotel Heppner dining room last eve
ning, when it is estimated that at
least 300 people of the city were fed.
The crowd was so largo, and the din
ner so well patronized, that the ladies
despaired for a time of being able to
foed them all, but they pulled through
and we can say that there was no
complaint on the part of any that they
failed to get all they desired to eat.
The dinner was made a commun
ity affair and was given in connection
with the annual open meeting of the
association. This annual meeting is
planned especially for the daddies and
other friends of the school who can
not attend the regular afternoon
meetings of the association, and on
this occasion the special feature of
the program was "Physica lEducation
in Our School." As the dinner pro
gressed, so did the numbers on the
program, and by a quarter of nine,
all were able to retire and attend
other attractions being offered in the
For some months past the Patron
Teacher association has been wrest
ling with the problem of physical
education in the schools of Hepp
ner. They have not been considering
the purely athletic side of this ques
tion, but have gone deeper into the
matter than this phnse. They are
fully aware of the lack of proper
equipment for carrying on this work,
and to get the matter more fully be
fore the people of the community the
meeting last night was planned, the
ladies hoping to be able to get be
fore our people their position regard
ing this physical education problem,
and speakers hod been chosen with
this end in view. Supt. Burgess pre
sented the subject in a fine address,
showing how, down the ages, the de
velopment of the physical side as
well as the mental side of the child
had been deemed proper, his talk
leading up to the needs of our own
local schools in this respect. Mr.
Burgess well presented the need but
offered no specific solution for the
problem. Leonard Schwarz followed
in a short talk on athletics, and
stressed the need of a gymnasium for
the school; stating that the teams go
ing out to play with other schools
were somewhat humiliated because
they could not boast of Hcppner's
equipment along this line. Football
and baseball could be handled pretty
well under existing conditions, but
basketball was a failure largely be
cause of no proper place in which to
S. E. Notson then spoke on the sub
ject "Our School Our Chiefest As
set," and established many good
points showing that the money put
into the making of citizens was money
well spent; carried out the idea that
it was necessary to educate the phy
sical side of the pupils and that they
be taught how to play as well as how
to study; that this was needed in af
ter life as well as during the school
years. He would not stress the side
of athletics too far, but rather sup
ply the necessary equipment in the
way of a gymnasium and other things
that would lead to the better physical
training of pupils. Mr. Notson would
not oppose the expenditure of neces
sary money by the district to get this
equipment, as investment in the
schools is investment in future citi
zenship; the better this is, the better
will be the country.
L. Van Marter, who acted as toast
master, also spoke along the line of
general physical training and gave the
position of the P. T. A.
Other speakers were C. L. Sweek,
representing the community, and
Harold Conn, the American Legion
post. These men presented the prob
lem from the standpoint of the need
of the community for an auditorium,
stating that they were ready to join
forces with the city, school diflrict
and legion post in putting this over,
or In any other proposed plan that
would work out to the best advantage.
Musical numbers were furnished by
the Roy Dorr Strand band who were
filling an engagement in the city at
the Star theater; piano duet by ilvris
Cox and Jeanette Turner; vocal solo,
Dean T. Goodman; Miss Fredreck
son's grade school orchestra; high
school chorus, presenting soma selec
tions from the coming operetta un
der direction of Miss Demi, and a
vocal solo by Mrs. Ray Taylor.

Forty Performers From Heppner
High School Claim Stage
Tuesday, March 9th.
A rare treat for lovers of good mu
sic, drama, comedy, or artistic Bcenic
effects will be afforded those who are
fortunate enough to secure tickets
for "The Maid and the Middy," high
school musical comedy to be present
ed at the Star theater the afternoon
and evening of March 9.
A cast of forty persons will for two
hours entertain you with steps which
will make your feet tingle to try a
polka yourself, and catchy sailor
tunes which you will find yourself
humming for weeks. You'll be de
lighted with the plot, and find your
self sympathizing with the Count in
his despair over the loss of his be
loved Anita. You'll be as interested
in the outcome of the Lakevlile Boat
club's races as are the contestants
themselves. And best of all, when
the "show" is over and you leave the
theater, it will be with the feeling
that you've had a real evening of in
tense enjoyment. You'll be sorry
when the final curtain falls. And
well you may be, for it will be many
a day before anything quite so elab
orate and effective will be produced
It is rather hard to single out and
comment upon just a few of the char
acters obviously there are many
others in the cast who are deserving
of praise, but suffice it to say that
Duck Lee is a riot as the Spanish
Count,1 Crocket Sprouls "outfarms"
them all as the retired agriculturist;
Earl Merritt puts the full force of his
ordinarily forceful impersonations in
to the work of depicting Billy, the
Middy; Marjorie Clark with her clear
voice handles very well the rather
difficult role of Valerie; and that
Bob Tash as Slimson, very perpendic
ular as to figure, is a comedy in him
self. Ellis Thomson, John Turner, Pa
tricia Mahoney and Jim Thomson are
all showing up well in rehearsals.
The complete cast follows! Valerie,
the maid, Marjorie Clark; Billy, the
middy, Earl Merritt; Capt. Dasher,
John Turner; Dawson, retired farm
er, Crocket Spouls; Evans, of the
Lakeville Boat club, Jim Thomson;
Fits, also of the boat club, Ellis
Thomson; the Count, Duck Lee; Mrs.
Gaily, young widow, Patricia Mahon
ey; Bounder, Harold Evans; Slimson,
Bob Tash; Alice, Maud and Phyllis,

Members, Paul Hisler, Kenneth Ov
iatt, Gerald Slocum, Roderick Thom
son. Besides the operetta itself, there
will be some very interesting inter
ludes. Eddie and Matt Kenny give a
"Gallagher and Sheehan" stunt that
will make your sides ache. Eighth
grade girls will present a "Dance of
tho Summer Hours" and a Colonial
Minuet which are certainly easy to

your pleasure or enjoyment of the
evening has been left undone. Avast!

Is Called By Death
John C. McEntirc, for many years
a prominent sheepman of this sec
tion, died at his home on Skinner
creek, about eleven miles southeast
of Heppner at noon on Friday, Feb.
26. He had been sick for some time,
but only took to his bed a short time
before his final summons came. Some
two years ago Mr. McEntire suffered
a stroke of paralysis, and some
months later this whs followed by
another, and his decline seemed to
be rather rapid after that, and while
he had been able to get about and
look after his affnirs on the ranch
pretty well, his family and friends
realized that he was making a losing
fight and that his departure could not
be long delayed.
Funeral services were held from St.
Patrick's church in this city on Sun
day afternoon at 2 o'clock, Rev. Fath
er Cantwell officiating. There was a
very large gathering of friends who
came from both Morrow and Umatilla
counties to pay the last tribute of
respect to one they had long known
and esteemed as friend and neighbor.
He was a member of Heppner lodge
of Elks and the Knights of Columbus,
and these orders took a prominent
part in the funeral ceremonies, each
being largely represented.
John C. McEntire was born in coun
ty Leitram, Ireland and came to this
country 28 years ago, settling in this
county. Several years after coming
here he engaged in the sheep industry
und had continued in this business
up till the time of his death. He
was married 18 years ago to Julia
Sheridan, and besides his widow he
is survived by five children, three
brothers, one sister and an aged
mother. The children are Kathleen,
Llizabeth, Annie, Eleanor and Mar
garet; the brothers residing in this
country are James McEntire of Con
don and Peter McEntire of Beaver
ton. His aged mother, a brother and
sister reside in Ireland. At tho time
of his passing, Mr. McEntire was 52
years of age.

To Keep Open House
The local telephone exchange will

March 10, and each customer, togeth

fice in Heppner.
This is the occasion of the fiftieth
anniversary of the first entirely suc
cessful test of the telephone, and the
local organization will gladly explain
the equipment and methods employed
in rendering telephone service, an ac
quaintance with which will be found
both interesting and mutually help
ful. On March 10, 1876, Alexander Gra
ham Bell, in his attic workshop in
Boston, spoke into a telephone in
strument the first complete sentence
ever transmitted over a wire which
was heard and understood by the
person at the other end of the line.
Thomas A. Watson, Bell's assistant,
listening on a crude instrument in
another part of the building, respond
ed to Dr. Bell's request to "come
here." He came bounding into the
room where the inventor had spoken,
answering the message and bringing
assurance that the new device to con
vey the sound of the human voice
was, in fact, a reality.
Dr. Bell and Watson were the first
two telephone men. Watson is still
living. Today the 360,000 telephone

the patrons and friends of Heppner

Called to Final Rest
Death came to Mrs. David H. Gra
bill of lone at the Morrow General
hospital in this city early Monday
morning, March 1st, 1926, following
an illness of about two weeks. Mrs.
Grabill became ill with influenza at
her lone home and a few days follow
ing was brought to the hospital here
for medical treatment and care.
Death came from sleeping scikness, a
result of the flu attack, and while it
was realized that Mrs. Grabill was
very ill, her passing came as a shock
to her family and friends who had
hopes that she might recover.
Funeral services were held at lone
Christian church at 1:30 Wednesday
afternoon, Milton W. Bower, pastor of
the Heppner church, officiating, and
a large number of friends and neigh
bors were present to show their re
spect to one who had been a friend
and neighbor through many long
years of residence in the commun
ity. Burial was in the Baker ceme
tery south of lone, where other mem
bers of the family lie sleeping.
Julian Ann Jefferies was born near
Newcastle, Gentry county, Missouri,
June 11, 1856, and died at Heppner,
Oregon, March 1, 1926, being 69 years,
8 months and 18 days of age. In
1866 she moved with her parents to
Harrison county, Missouri, and there
grew to womanhood. October 23, 1873,
she was married to David H. Grabill
at Lorraine, Missouri, and to this
union nine children were born, of
whom there remain John W. Grabill
and Archie T. Grabill of California,
Willard Grabill, Thomas E. Grabill
and Owen G. Grabill of lone.
With her husband and family she
came west in 1883 to Eastern Oregon
and settled in Morrow county, endur
ing for many years the hardships in
cident to overcoming pioneer condi
tions. Her husband retiring from
work on the farm some twenty years
ago, a home was established in lone
where they have continued to live
since and enjoy the fruits of their
labors. She was a faithful member
of the Christian church, in which
communion she enjoyed fellowship for

Road Crew Digs Up
Long Buried Skeleton
While at work on the Franklin hill
grade the first of the week the road
crew dug up a skeleton, the remains
of some person that had been buried
in the clay bank there many long
years ago. The find was reported to
Coroner Case, and he went out that
way on Tuesday and brought in some
of the principal bones which were
in a fairly good state of preservation.
It is the opinion of the coroner that
the skeleton had been buried any
where from 100 to 1000 years, and
there seems nothing to indicate that
the party had been buried in the clay
bank in more recent years as the re
sult of some crime that had been com
mitted. There seems some indication
that death might have been the re
sult of a blow on the head, but the
skull had been so long in the clay
that it was filled solidy. It is very
likely the skeleton of some one of
Morrow county's aboriginal residents
who passed from this life in a nat
