MAKES BIG HIT
Colorful Musical Comedy
400 AT NIGHT SHOW
40 Heppner School Pupils Had Part;
Music, Dancing, Comedy, Make
Up Varied Program.
One of the most successful all
round entertainments ever presented
by the local high school was "The
Maid and the Middy," a musical com
edy in two acts, at Star theater Tues
day aftenoon and evening. It was most
pretentious in the number of per
formers, colorful costumes and va
riety of entertainment, consisting of
Bongs, dances and comedy, and the
manner in which the parts were taken
denoted no end of meticulous care
in preparing the presentation.
A full house is reported to have
attended the afternoon matinee, but
in the evening every availablel seat
in the house was at a premium, more
than 400 reported to have been at
that performance. The financial out
come was more than had been hoped
for, and more than $200 is reported
to have been cleared for the student
The entire cast, including maids,
middies and special performers, num
bered 40. The special numbers were
worked into the theme of the operetta
making a continuous performance be
Setting of "The Maid and the Mid
dy" was laid on the grounds of the
Lakeville Boat Club in an American
port, and the time of the scenes was
the afternoon and evening of the
same day. The middies come into
port, meet the maids, and love
matches are made. A boat race cen
ters attention. But the main plot
is laid around Anita, whose identity
as a parrot is not made known until
the final curtain. A Spanish count
bought Anita, but she is in the pos
session of Billy, a middy. The count
arrives in Lakeville in search of
Anita. He makes it known she is in
Billy's possession. The knowledge
causes a split between Billy and Va-
erie, the maid. A retired farmer ar
rives on the scene, centering the
comedy theme. But it works out right
in the end.
Choruses, solos, duets, trios, quar
tets and double quartets, all had a
part in the musical revelation of the
plot, while dialogue was used to de
pict much of the comedy situation
Marjorie Clark in the lear part of Va
lerie, was charming in costume and
acting, and her clear voice, all made
of Valerie a charming reality. Op
posite her in the role of Billy, Earl
Mcrritt made a handsome sailor lad,
and though handicapped by having
acquired a cold just before the pres
entation, he delivered his solo work
well. Crocket Sprouls, made up as a
"hick" farmer having lately acquired
a fortune, was the clown. The num
ber of times he brought the house
down is enough evidence of the stel
lar manner in which he did his part.
The mysterious count, who, next to
the rustic gentleman, probably
brought forth the most laughter, was
done to a nicety by Duck Lee. The
count's basso profundo rendition will
probably live in the minds of his
hearers for years to come. Other
major parts, all well portrayed, were
taken as follows: Evans, master of
ceremonies, Lakeville Boat Club, Jim
Thomson; Fits, of the house commit
tee, L. B. C, Ellis Thomson; Capt.
Dasher, in command of the "Dread-
naught," John Turner; Bounder, of
the L. B. C, champion oarsman, Har
old Evans; Young Slimson, also of
the L. B. C, "the great unknown,"
Robert Tash; attendant of L. B. C,
Gerald Slocum; Mrs. Gaily, attractive
young widow, Patricia Mahoney;
Alice, Maud, Phyllis, friends of Va
lerie, Muriel Cason Aiken, Louise
Thomson, Zaida Tash.
The maids were Aura Gentry, Ethel
Moore, Grace Buschke, Margaret Not-
son, Thelma Starkey, Letha Hiatt,
Shirley Prophet, Mary Ritchie, Vir
ginia Dix. The middies, Kenneth Mer-
rctt, Onoz Parker, Bobby Turner,
Members of the L. B. C, Roderic
Thomson, Paul Hisler, Kenneth Ov

were: Dance of the Summer Hours,

girls whose beautiful performance
was a very rare treat Anna McDaid

ceived an encore, and the audience
acted as though it dreaded the end
Much of the Buccess is due to the un
tiring efforts of the coaches, Miss An
nabel Denn, Charles Glenn Smith and
Mrs, Harold Cohn. Miss Denn had
charge of the music, Mr. Smith of the
acting, and Mrs. Cohn the dancing.
Miss Denn also accompanied the per

The actual work of making the per
manent survey and location of the
Hardman-Spray road through the for

Roads is to begin at once, and the
camp for the engineers is being estab

south of Hardman.
The crew of about sixteen men will
be in charge of J. C. Womack, en
gineer of the department, who is on
the job this week, accompanied by
Mr. Farmer, chief engineer, and they
are locating the camp site and mak
ing some preliminary surveys as to
location of certain portions of the
proposed road. We understand that
the work will be permanent and will
extend from the mouth of Chapin
creek to the southern boundary of the
forest reserve. The government will
push their work on to completion in
both grading and surfacing just as
fast as the funds are available, it is
understood by our local authorities.

Just how soon the other portions of
the work wiy be completed is yet a

Motor Dealers Purchase
Dennis McNamee Corner
A deal was closed this week for
the transfer to Ferguson Chevrolet
company by Dennis McNamee, of the
corner on Main and May streets south
of the First National bank.
The new owners of the property
will arrange at once to begin the con
struction of a garage building and
sales rooms that will cover the entire
lot and hope to have the building
complelted by the first of June. The
expansion of the business of the
Ferguson Chevrolet company in this
city has compelled them to seek larg
er quarters, and no bundling being
available, they have taken steps to
erect one of their own, and the loca
tion selected is ideal for their line.
Ample sales room for display of cars
will be provided, aj well as space for
storage and machine shop.

Roy W. Ritner Will Seek
Position in Legislature
Roy W. Ritner of Pendleton is in
the race for the nomination for joint
representative from Morrow and Uma
tilla counties. His -announcement
I desire to announced my candidacy
for the republican nomination as rep
resentative in the legislature from
the joint district comprising Morrow
and Umatilla counties.
I favor fewer laws, a state income
tax with a property tax offset, a nor
mal Bchool for Eastern'Oregon and
the completion of the present state
highway system with market roads
as feeders. I believe that each coun
ty should have at least one represen
tative in the legislature and joint
districts should be eliminated. I will,
if elected, introduce a resolution
amending the constitution to this ef
fect. This amendment will have to
be submitted to the people for their
approval and if adopted will take ef
feet after the census is taken in 1930
at which time the constitution di
rects the legislature to reapportion
the state into legislative districts.
I am opposed to any increase in the
gasoline tax without a proportionate
reduction in auto licenses, to any leg
islation which will tend to cripple the
Pendleton Round-Up and to the adop
tion of the Dennis resolution pro
hibiting a state income tax.
My legislative experience in both
house and senate extends over a per
iod of fifteen years. In 1921 I was
president of the senate. During the
World War I went overseas as field
representative of the American Red
Cross and was attached to the Fifth
Division, A. E, F.
If elected to the legislature I will
give to the interests of Morrow coun
ty the same attention and energy
which I have in the past given to not
only Umatilla county but the entire
Eastern Oregon country. I have lived
in north-eastern Oregon for the past
forty-four years and at one time lived
at Castle Rock, in Morrow county. I
have been engaged in tho farming
business for the oast twentv years.

In this connection, Mayor Noble

Mr. Campbell, however', these parties

A survey of the amount of unsold
wool on hand in Oregon, Washington
and Idaho indicates but little unsold
wool on March 1, states Western Wool
News. There is practically no 1925
wool in Idaho or Washington witn
but 300,000 or 400,000 pounds in the
interior of Oregon. In Portland most
of the stocks have moved tast, proD

unsold. Considering the production
of these three states, this is but
small percentage remaining.
HEAVY RAIN FALLS
OVER THIS COUNTY
A very heavy rain fell over Mor
row county on Monday and Monday
night and there has been occasional
showers since. In the mountains and
on ti e foot hills snow was the order
during the storm, and reached nearly
to Heppner, a fall of four inches be
ing, reported at the John Kilkenny
place on Hinton creek, and some six
inches at Hardman. The ground is
thoroughly soaked and we have as
surance now that the growing crops
be furnished plenty of moisture
for their maturity. During several
nights of the past week there was
heavy frost and some fears are ex
pressed for the early fruit as peaches
and apricots were budding, but these
fears may prove groundless.
A. J. Lovgren Dies at
Hot Lake Sanitorium
Word was received here early this
morning announcing the death during
last night of August John Lovgren
at the sanitorium at Hot Lake. Mr.
Lovgren, who had ben very ill for
some time, and was being cared for
at the home of his brother, Martin
Lovgren in this city, was taken to Hot
Lake about ten days ago with the
hope that relief might be had from
taking the treatments there. He was
a sufferer from a complication of ail
ments and his condition had become
so serious that there was no re
sponse to treatment.
Mr. Lovgren had been a resident or
Morrow county for many years and
grew up in this county, following
farming in the Gooseberry and bight
Mile sections. He is survived by three
children, besides his brothers, Martin
and E. E. Lovgren. The body will
reach Heppner tomorrow evening and
the funeral will likely be on Sunday
with burial in the I. O. O. F. cemetery
at Hardman, where other members of
the family are buried. He was a mem
ber of the I. O. O. F. lodge and was
aged 44 years.
