Hcppner's American Legion carnival
on July 8-4-5 looks more promising
as the time draws near. The business
men of the city are taking a keen in
terest in the event, and have added
their invitation to that of the Legion
in extending hospitality to all Mor
The program plans are being com
pleted in line with the schedule an
nounced with a few minor alterations.
The water carnival which was an
nounced for the morning of the 4th
has been changed to the afternoon af
ter the ball game. Plans for this
event are announced in another col
umn. Arrangements are being made to
care for a large crowd, as there is
evidence that many will take advan
tage of this big amusement oppor
tunity. For those who wish to bring
their lunches with them grounds will
be provided at the court house grove
and at the fair grounds. Plenty of
shade and good water can be had at
these places, giving an ideal place to
rest and visit between times.
Among the leading attractions on
the program will be the smoker
events, a championship wrestling
mntch between George Barnes, Wash
ington state champion of Longview
and Frank Pilling of Pendleton, and
a big fistic event, in which Rocco
Stramaglia of Cle Elum, Washington,
will box Otto Robinson as the head
line attraction. The wrestling bout
will come the evening of July 3, and
the boxing on the 6th, both events at
7:30 in front of the new grandstand.
That the Stramaglia-Robinson go
will be no frame-up, is evidenced by
the following letter received from
Stramaglia's manager, Mike P. Schwel-mer:
"Rocco Stramaglia, the big Italian
heavyweight from the coal mines of
Cle Elum, Washington, is in the pink
of condition for his battle with Otto
Robinson, July 5. Rocco has been
bowling his opponents over regularly
in the gymnasium and the fans are
in for a real fistic treat when he
crawls through the ropes.
"Stramaglia has met and defeated
nome of the best heavyweights in the
country. He knocked out the sensa
tional Eddie Huffman in forty-five sec
onds. He has fought Jack Dempsey
and Tommy Gibbons exhibition bouts.
Rocco expects to knock out Robinson
in a couple of rounds as he figures on
meeting George Carpentier in Port
land during the month of July. Ed
die Huffman fought Carpentier a ten
round draw a short time ago and as
Stramaglia knocked out Huffman In a
round the big Italinn stands a good
chance of winning over the colorful
Frenchman. Rocco knows nothing but
fight when he's in the ring, throwing
gloves all the time and willing to ex
change blows at all times.
"I'm Bending Rocco out to end the
fight in as short a time as possible."
Plans for the athletic events for
Monday morning, the 6th, are under
way and will be announced next week,
All told the carnival will afford a gen
uine means of celebration, it is be
lieved, and the county is urgently in
vited to participate.
The road crew is getting on the
ground to begin the work of grading
the Heppner-Spray road, and dirt will
soon be flying on this contract. Out
fits have been passing through Hopp
er this week and camps will be im-
lediatcly established at convenient
points along the survey.
From what we have already seen,
ig trucks and plenty of machinery
will be in use and there should be no
delay whatever in pushing the job to
prompt completion. Heppner will be
the supply point for the crews at work
on this contract, so we are informed,
and in addition to the work now prog
ressing on the Lena-Vinson gap, will
elp materially in livening the trade
at this place.

Manager Barr Turns
Trick for Local Win
A good piece of strategy on the part
of Manager Barr drug the locals out
of a bad hole in Sunday's ball game
with Umatilla, enabling the locals to
overcome a one-run lead and win 6-2.
Umatilla grouped a couple of hits in
the second inning, which combined
with two passed batters to put across
couple of tallies and Heppner made
one run in the same inning. The
game see-sawed then for several in-
ings, and though both sides got men
n bases, they were unable to score
until the sixth canto.
Then, gaining heart by getting
couple of men on bases,, the locals
took a fresh start. Two outs were
made, however, with no scores, mak-
ng things look as if the rally would
be short lived. Manager Barr would-
t have it that way, though, and sent
i "Bus" Gentry to hit for Allen
Bus" hadn't been hitting much, but
the psychology of the situation was
n his favor, for he tapped out a little
nfield grounder and made first on
bobble. The jinx was off then and
Heppner scored five runs before the
third out was made.
Dave Wilson umpired strikes and
balls, and F. B. N'ickerson bases. Jack
McGinnis was official Bcorer.
Heppner will play Boardman here
next Sunday. Boardman is strong in
the pitching department and will give
Heppner something to worry about.

That the water carnival at the Am-
rican Legion swimming pool on the
afternoon of the Fourth will be one
f the most entertaining features of
the big three-day athletic carnival on
the 3rd, 4th and 5th, is the opinion of
those having the show in charge.
There will be something to entertain
the spectators all the time, and the
ontests have been 60 arranged that
11 swimmers may take part.
The water sports will begin imme
diately following the ball game, and
it is planned they will consume be
tween an hour and a half and two
The swimming races will consist
mostly of short dashes with compe
tition in the following classes: boys
under 16, girls under 16, boys under
10, girls under 10, free for all for
men, and free for all for women. In
all these events cash prizes will be
awarded the winners. In addition to
the scheduled races there will proba
bly be matched races between the
best Bwimmers present.
In the diving contest there will be
threeprizes, given as follows:
Straight diving, including only tho
swan dive and jackknite dive, nrst
and second prizes; best all found div
er, one prize. In the latter event all
forms of diving will be shown and
the competition in both classes la
expected to be keen, as several local
swimmers have been practicing reg
ularly the past two weeks, and mnny
outside competitors are expected. In
the diving events winners will be
chosen on the point system. Those
intending to enter the swimming ev
ents are requested to register with
B. R. Finch at the nntatorium on or
before July 1st, although where it
is impossible to register before that
date entries will bo accepted later.
It is uinted out by the committee
that the water carnival is not a Hepp
ner affair exclusively, and they are
very anxious to have representatives
entered from all points in the county,
A feature of the carnival which has
received a great deal of attention and
one that should prove of interest to
all is the bathing beauty contest. In
this event there will be numerous
prizes and the competition will doubt
less be lively. This event is also
open to entrants from any point in
Morrow county and it is urged that
prospective competitors enter at an
early date. For their convenience an
entry coupon is printed on this page.
This should be filled out and handed
or mailed to B. R. Finch, Heppner.
However, the use of the coupon is
not cmopulsory and anyone may enter
by registering with Mr. Finch, The
judges for this contest as well as for
the diving events have not yet been
definitely chosen. They will be an
nounced next week.
Arrangements are being made to
increase the seating capacity at the
swimming pool and it is expected
seats will be available for all who
wish to -attend.
Mrs. John Olden of Rhea Creek died
Tuesday afternoon at the Morrow
General hospital from chronic heart

thing possible being done to bring
relief from her sufferings. She was

is mourned by many friends in this
community where she had resided for
a number of years. Mrs. Olden was

Wheat Certification to be

of the Oregon Agricultural college and
County Agent Morse next week. Ac

wheat this fall as the wheat fields of
Eastern Oregon are mixed worse than
usual. This mixture is due to the
freezcout of last year making clean
seed scarce last fall.
Growers having fairly clean fields
should notify the County Agent at
once if they wish them inspected for

tion, it being said that the scope of
its work was a revelation to many.
The Heppner party in the Morse car
took in the wheat belt going to Moro,
and though they found the roads not
so good, they got a good idea of the
crop situation. They report the wheat
very spotted with some good fields
and some not so good. Outside of
Heppner fiat the best looking wheat
was encountered near Moro, and this
appeared to be hurting some with the
warm weather. While at Moro Mr.
Morse arranged for field tests in this
county of several of the new smut-
proof wheats that have been grown
quite successfully at the station.
These will be planted in small plots
this fall on different farms. They
absoutely do not need to be treated
for smut, says the county agent.
