GOVERNOR TO SPEAK
Walter M. Pierce Will Address Open
Meeting at Elks Hall; Other Prom
inent Grangers on Program.
Among the main speakers at the
Grange meeting in Heppner Friday,
April 2, will be Hon. Walter M. Pierce,
governor of Oregon. Governor Pierce
will hold the stage at the Elks tem
ple at 2 o'clock in the afternoon at
an open meeting, to which everybody
is invited. The purpose of the meet
ing of Grangers here is the organi
zation of a Pomona Grange, county
division of the state Grange, and it
is expected a large number of out
side people will be in the citv on that
The organization meeting will con
vene at 10 o'clock in the forenoon at
the Heppner hotel dining room. ' At
noon a basket dinner furnished by
individual members will be served.
For this occasion the Rhea Creek
Grange will provide potatoes, ham,
coffee, sugar and milk. In the eve
ning the Pomona degrees will be given
by a drill team from Boardman and
Speaker in the afternoon, besides
Governor Pierce, will be A. R. Shum
way of Umatilla county. G. A. Pal
miter, Master of the State Grange,
and W. R. Gekeler, Deputy State Mas
ter of the Oregon Grange will speak
at an open meeting in the morning.
With this array of talent on the pro
gram it is expected that the Morrow
county Pomona Grange will be giv n
a whirlwind start.
The speech-making ability of Gov
ernor Pierce needs no comment, and
it is expected the Elks hall will be
taxed for room at the time of his
address. The governor has long been
an ardent worker in the Grange and
the last few years has visited every
portion of the state in its interest.
His message will hold attraction for
many interested in the order here,
where the Grange has just been in
troduced. At present there are five local
Granges in the county. Boardman,
Irrigon, Willow Creek, Rhea Creek
and Fuirview, having a membership
of 300. The communities having a
chapter of the order find it of great
benefit in the social life of the com
munity as well as a big educational
factor. Women are on an equal foot
ing with men in the Grange and the
age limit is lowered to include many

Boy Scout Troop Will
Hold Investiture Service
With the impetus of a new leader
and an active cooperation committee
Boy Scout Troop No. 1 of Heppner is
forging right ahead to a conspicuous
place among state troops. Early in
April members of this group plan to
hold an investiture service, when sev
eral applicants will be taken into the
first, or Tenderfoot, degree of Scout
,dom. To pass the examinations for this
a boy must know the scout oaths,
laws and by-laws, and must demon
strate that he has acquired a fund of
knowledge of general use to a scout,
such as tying knots of all sorts and
purposes, and being able to give cer
tain national symbols and traditions.
Later on, by additional work and
study, he may take the higher rank
of Second and FirBt degree scouts.
Some boys are also chosen as patrol
leaders, and in that capacity have
charge of a group of boys within the
troop itself. Harlan Dovin, Clarence
Hayes and Terrel Benge have attained
this honor so far.
The roster of Troop No. 1 has about
22 names just now. Boys between the
ages of 12 and 18 are eligible for
membership. M. W. Bower, pastor of
the Christian church, is the new
scoutmaster, and the Heppner coop

Council Sets Day For Annual
Clean-Up; Mayor Noble Ask!
Cooperation of Citizens.
Monday, April 12, has been set aside
as clean-up day in Heppner. This ac
tion was taken by the city council at
its last meeting and plans made for
its successful observance. In an
nouncing the date for this annual oh
servance of a civic obligation, Mayor
KoDle has issued a proclamation ask
ing the cooperation of all the people
of the city.
In setting the day for Monday the
council had in mind the idea that
those who found it impossible to take
this day off, could do their work on
the Sunday before, and thus no excuse
could be given by anyone for not do
ing his part. All rubbish is to be
put in sacks, boxes, or other contain
ers, and placed at the curb or on the
street, and the city will cooperate by
having it hauled away free of charge
on that day, it is announced.
"It is important that the back yards
and alleys be given as careful atten
tion as the front of property," said
Mayor Noble this week. "The condi
tion of the back yard is a pretty- good
indication of the household in gen
eral, and people should be careful to
see that their back yard gives the
right kind of impression."
During the last few weeks the citv
has been busy putting many of the
side streets in good condition, and it
is believed that by whole-hearted co
operation on thiB day, the old town
will be better groomed htan it has
been for many a day. One point in
particular, however, should be kept in
mind at all times,' said Mayor Noble.
A city ordinance prohibits the throw
ing of ashes, refuse, or trash of anv
description onto the city thorough-
lares, and a closer observance of this
statute may be the means of avoid
TO THE PEOPLE OF HEPPNER:
It has been the custom of the Citv
Council for several years to set aside
a day each spring for the purpose of
making a general clean-up of the
city. A need for such an occasion be
ing felt again this year the council
has designated Monday, April 12, for
this occasion, and it is hereby nro-
claimed as Clean-Up Day in Heppner.
1 hereby urge every citizen of the
city to observe this day by making a
thorough clean-up of his premises
the back yard and alley as well as
the front yard and street to the end
that our city may be made more at
tractive, more livable, and health con
ditions in general be made better.
The earnest cooperation of all will be
necessary for a successful carrying
out of the plans for this day.

A hard-fought baseball game was
played between the freshman and
sub-freshman teams last Saturday on
the baseball diamond. Although the
sub-freshman team was made up
largely of grade school pupils who
substituted for "regulars" who were
ill, they were victorious by a score of
15 to 14.
Many of the high school boys have
been turning out for baseball practice
during the past week. The first con
test will take place with Arlington
on April 3rd at that city. Prospects
for the first team are: battery, Earle
and Kenneth Merritt; shortstop, Paul
Hisler; 2nd base, Crocket Sprouls;
3rd base, Bill Bucknum. The remain
ing positions are undecided as yet.
Among the freshmen turning out are
M. Howard, M. Edmundson and J. Cas
teel. Superintendents Burgess of Hepp
ner and Skeen of lone have been
working together on plans for a de
clamatory contest which will include
all the schools in Morrow county.
The grade schools will be divided in
to three classes, the lower, interme
diate and upper sections. Any sub
ject, humorous or otherwise, may be
chosen, and it does not have to be
original. This plan has been fash

in this county is sufficiently enthus

' Early This Afternoon
Word received just before going to

resident of this city, at the Morrow
General hospital, caused by a stroke
of apoplexy. Mr. Gemmell was take

weakened by an illness of several
week's duration, he was apparently
resting ensicr, until the stroke this
afternoon struck him.
Joseph H. Gemmell was for many
years a farmer near Heppner, retiring
several years ago with Mrs. Gemmell
to make his home in this city. He
leaves a large circle of relatives and

With Spring comes house cleaning.
Clean-Up" campaigns are now in or
der. It is an excellent plan to have
the streets, alleys and yards cleaned
especially in the Spring, but the ben
efit of the clean-up will depend en
tirely upon the efforts of the indiv
iduals to keep up the work for the en
tire year. To maintain healthy, san
itary conditions either for the indiv
idual or the community does not re
quire a great effort, but it does re
quire a more or less continuous ef
fort. Cleanliness of person and premises
is to a certain extent a protection
against disease. A clean, healthy en
vironment has a wholesome effect,
while a dirty, unsanitary environ
ment is degenerative in its effect
physically, mentally and morally-
producing poor citizens. Anything
which raises the standards of clean
and healthy living will pay finan
cially. There is nothing more expen
sive to the community than filth and
A favorable sentiment toward bet
ter living and health has grown in
this state until now there is in al
most every community a clean-up
spirit. An annual clean-up does not
suffice any more for a clean city than
a yearly bath would for a clean in
dividual. Regular inspection of the
milk and meat supplies, restaurants
and soda fountains is necessary to
insure safe and clean foods. The
streets, alleys and backyards should
be kept clean by continuous effort and
vigilance. In this way you will raise
the standard of living in your com
munity. Desirable citizens are at
tracted to live where the conditions
are favorable to health and content
ment. All manure piles whether around
houses, barns, hog pens or chicken
yards should be removed at least
twice a week, as they are the princi
pal breeding places of the fly. Lime
is one of the cheapest disinfectants
for general use, and should be liberal
ly used in the disinfection of manure
grounds, garbage cans and the like.
Precautions taken against flies now
will save endless work and worry
Take pride in the general appear
