Subscription $2.00 a Year ENTERTAINS MANY Ball Games Feature Three Day Celebration ; Belt Retained by Barnes FLIGHT CARD IS GOOD Stramaglia and Robinson Go to Draw; Water Carnival, Race Dances Attract Crowd. A large crowd of people from all points in Morrow county, besides many from the outside took advantage of the American Legion Athletic Car nival this week in Heppner. In con trast with the old-time, rip-snortin', hullabaloo celebration of by-gorie days, the crowd was well behaved and all events passed off quietly and were none the less enjoyed thereby. The biggest drawing attraction on the program was the part taken up by the baseball games, large crowds occupying seats in the new grand stand at Rodeo field each of the three days. The wrestling match Saturday evening in front of the grandstand did not draw so well, though many vho attended were heard to express the opinion that it was best of all. In the main event at this attraction Geo. Barnes of Longvicw, Wash., won over Frank Pilling of Pendleton, thereby retaining his $400 championship belt, besides the big end of the $400 purse. Pilling got the first fall from Barnes with a chiropractic headlock after 35 minutes had elapsed. Then Barnes came back and threw Pilling twice, the first fall being taken in four min utes with a mill-wheel, and the sec ond in one minute with a headlock. Preliminaries for this event were an exhibition bout between the young daughter and small son of Frank Pill ing, the youngsters having been coached by -their father, and a 16 minute go between Harvey Bauman ind Reid Buseick. Both these matches resulted in draws. For their trouble the Pilling children were given a free-wijl offering by the spectators in appreciation of their spirited match. The patriotic services at the Fair grounds Sunday, morning drew a large number who combined the Sun day worship with a patriotic program. Main speakers were E. C. Alford of the Methodist community church, and Milton W. Bower, pastor of the Chris tian church. Several musical num bers were included in the program. In the afternoon following the baseball game came the water carnival at the Legion natatorium. A large crowd filled the inclosure around the tank to witness the swimming and diving contests. The two main events at this attraction were won by Paul Aiken. These were the fancy diving contest and men's free for all swim. Bobbie Turner took second in the first named rvent and Philip Mahoney took second in the latter. Other water sports were races and diving events for va rious classes of swimmers. Monday morning a large number of participants contested in the races on Main street. Winners of races fol low: 100 yard under 18, O. Parker first, Ernest Cox second; potato race, Alex Ulrich first. Max Schulz second; 3-Iegged race, Rodney Thomson and flux Schulz first, E. Her and Joe Swin. dig second; 60 yard boys, Everett Her first, John McNamee second; barrel race, John McNamee first, Alex Ulrich second; 100 yard free for all, Fred Roberts first; 50 yard girls, Toots Brown first, C. Bisbee second. The men's free for all resulted in a 60 ard challenge match between Jim Cowins and a stranger, Cowins win ning. The boxing card Monday night was moved from the open air in front of the new grandstand to the open air pavilion and a much larger crowd at tended than witnessed the wrestling events. Every match on the card was snappy. Rocco Stramaglia and Otto Itobinson, heading the card, fought six three-minute rounds to a draw. Though Robinson was faster than his opponent and did a majority of the hitting, he was unable to feaze the tough Italian. They mixed it in good style, however, and there was little complaint from the fans. Starting the preliminaries B. R." Finch and Harve Bauman staged an exhibition mixed wrestling and boxing mntch In which Bauman, the wrestler, had the edge, taking one fall from Finch. Two of the Knight boys from Irrigon had part in the preliminaries. One of them fought Logan from Cecil and the other fought Elmer Bucknum of Heppner. Both these bouta were fast and resulted in draw decisions. A match that many of the spectators be lieved surpassed the main event was that between a man named Goodrich from Newberg and another outsider named Giese from Centralia, Wash. These two boys fighting in the light heavy class showed that they had been there before when it came to swinging the mits. Goodrich showed the edce In the first round, pounding his opponent hard about the head when he covered up by putting the gloves over his face. Tho next two rounds plainly showed, however, that Geise knew what -he was doing for he came bnck fresh while his oppon ent showed signs of weakening. These two rounds belonged to Giese and he won the decision. The dances at the open-air pavilion Sxturdsy and Monday evenings "each drew large crowds, and thiB part of the celebration paid well. The five piece Broadway Novelty orchestra of Arlington furnished the music and pepped things up to the satisfaction of the dancers. This orchestra also furnished music during intervals at the smoker Monday night. ROBERT JOHN BUSCHKE. After a heroic struggle of more than five years in which he fought an un equal battle with the great white plague, Robert J. Buschke, veteran of the World War and a comrade of Heppner Post No. 87, American Le gion, answered death's summons late Sunday evening, July 4th, at his home in this city, surrounded by the mem bers of his family and a number of friends. .His funeral was held at the Christian church in this city on Tues day afternoon under the auspices of the Legion, and was the first military funeral conducted by Heppner Post. Members of the post and of the Aux iliary attended in a body and there was a large gahtering of friends of the family in the community, who had come to pay their respects to the memory of one of the stricken heroes of the late war whom they had learn ed to respect very highly during the years of his struggle to regain his health a battle more terrible than the facing of bullets of the enemy on the field of carnage. All members of his family were present at the fu neral with the exception of one sis ter residing in Los Angeles. Comrades of the Legion acted as pall bearers and the casket was draped with the American flag while about the rostrum and casket were a pro fusion of floral pieces and boquets, offerings of the Legion, Auxiliary and employees of the local telephone ex change where Mrs. Buschke has had employment for several years, and from many friends.' Rev. W. W. Head of lone "assisted in the ceremonies, reading the scripture and offering prayer, and Commander Harold Cohn of the Legion post read the funeral service. Burial was at Masonic ceme tery where the commitment service of the American Legion was read. Robert John Buschke was born Oc tober 10, 1893, at The Dalles, Oregon, and died in Heppner, Oregon, July 4, 1926, aged 32 years, 8 months and 24 flays; son of Mr. and Mrs. Ben Bus chke and one of a family of 13 and the first .to be called to rest. With his family he came to Morrow county in the spring of 1903, and his resi dence has been here since with the exception of the period of his servico in the army and a short while spent ir. the veterans' hospital at Boise, Idaho. He was married September 21, 1916, at Pendleton, Oregon, to Lor ena Sperry of Hardman, by whom he is survived. Being called in the sec ond draft, he enlisted in the service of his country for the great World War conflict, on April 29, 1917, and went from Heppner to Camp Lewis. From there he was later transferred to Camp Mills, New York, at which point he took sick, suffering a relapse horn an attack of measles, ThiB in capacitated him for further service and he did not get across, greatly to his regret. He was then transferred to Camp Lee and given treatment and was later discharged and returned to Heppner. He was able to carry on for about a year after this but the in road3 of the disease made it impossi ble for him to work and he sought re lief at the Veterans' hospital at Boise, Idaho, where he remained for several months and gained some relief. The struggle went on for five years, but the hold of the disease on his system could not be broken and at last death came to his relief, and Robert took his departure to join that ever grow ing multitude who are passing on as a result of the disease that fastened upon them during their army service. Besides his widow he is survived by his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Ben Buschke of this city, and a number of brothers and sisters. He was highly esteemed by many friends in this community as a young man of very excellent qualities and their sympathy goes out tc the bereaved family. 1 75 Acres of Wheat Burned Near Helix One hundred seventy five acres of grain on the Lowell Stockman ranch in the Helix region was burned yes terday. The fire started at 11 a. m. and was presumably started by a cig arette dropped by a passing motorist. The grain was covered by insurance. 7he fire was put out after about two hours and a half of effort by 150 peo ple from the surrounding country, who quelled the blaze with wet sacks and by plowing around the burning area. Besides the grain, which was on that part of the Stockman ranch known as the Butler place, several small sheds were burned also. No machinery was lost in the fire. E. O. of Wednesday.

Pendleton's Buckaroos were taken into camp 6-S on the third, and the Hermiston Irrigators were defeated 9- 7 on the fifth by the Heppner bunch, but they dropped the game on the 4th 10- 4 to the Irrigators. All three games were snappy and the large number of fans who initiated the new grand stand at Rodeo field were given a ball treat such as had not been witnessed In Heppner since pre-Volstead days. The weather was hot very hot-. making it uncomfortable for the play ers and umpires in spite of the rolling sweat, but the fans reclined in cool comfort beneath the roof of the stand, eating ice cream and drinking soda pap, and enjoyed the whole show. The largest crowd was present on Sunday when more than 600 people toolf in the game, though both Saturday's and Monday'i games drew large gates. Heppner played her regular string men with the addition of two pitchers and a catcher, necessary to handle the three-game series. Keough, former ly with Boardman, and Montague of Arlington, assisted in the box, while Fred Hoskins of Rhea creek caught part time. Keough Holds Buckaroos That man Keough is a pretty tough hombre to be hanging around the bushes, so thought the Pendleton boys from the Blue Mountain league, after many ineffective trips to bat. They did find him for a minute in the sixth, however, when consecutive bingles by Adams, Hargett, Clark and King tal lied three men. Clark and King, sec ond baseman and shortstop respec tively, are two mighty nifty Indian players and were dangerous men at the bat all the time. On this instance Clark just banged out a little homer. He also had another hit to his credit, while King hong up three clean blows. This little rally of the Buckaroos was not sufficient as Heppner had pre viously scored six runs. Along about the fourth inning they cinched the old ball game. And it all started on a fluke. Van Marter knocked a hard grounder down pitcher Graham's way. Mr. Graham stuck out his right bare hand and grabbed it. But first base man Peters was looking to shortstop for the throw not noticing that the pitcher stopped it. Mr. Graham heaved it at Peters who was still look ing toward shortstop, and Mr. Peters received it somewhere about his mid dle anatomy while Van Marter took f.rst base unhindered. Then Roberts came up and cracked a long one over the left fielder s head for three bags; scoring Van. Slick old man Gay An derson next came up, and pulled the unexpected. He bunted beautifully and beat it out. But Fred Hoskins was not to be outdone. He picked up a big stick after Anderson and calm ly walked up to the plate. Whangl He picked out the first one. Left fieldcr Hargett started back, on back he went, and still back, but he couldn't leach it. The ball hit just inside the HELPFUL HINTS FOR Wucw -Jgp'UlTTIUff-TUg mWwAY-LVNttviALKON-ttlB AND - FACE TVIfr TRAFFIC DOMT amble oh TUt RIGHT Side of the concrete "with- YOUB BACK TO THE 3 . c fence and frolicked on through. And around the bases trotted Mr. Hoskins, crossing home just after Roberts and Anderson. That won the ball game, though Heppner gleaned a couple more runs by finch and Hill. Umpires for the first day were Mer cer and Nickerson. Scorer, Ralph Jackson. Roberta Has Hard Luck Sunday's. game is a short, sad tale, A few bingles and a bunch of errors gave Hermiston a ten-run lead in the first two Innings. And that's that. Thereafter Pitcher Roberts got his dander up and put a quietus on things. Freddie pitched a nice game in spite of the score, and with the exception of the first two cantos when he was hit rretty hard, he had the Hermiston boys on his hip. He allowed only five hits and struck out ten batters. As ctrainst this the Heppner boys made a total of eleven hits for four runs. But Heppner's hit't were scattered. And Bobbie Woodard struck out 12 Heppner men. Herman Hill and Gay Anderson had their day with the stick each getting three hits. Anderson, Hoskins, Keough and Hill did the scoring. McTot and Nickerson' umpired, and Jack McGinnis kept the tally sheet. Nip and Tuck on the Fifth The wholo game Monday was a fea ture. Both Hermiston and Heppner had it won and lost 'several times. And unlike most games where the winning team make more runs in one inning than the other side makes in the whole nine, the runs were pretty well scattered. Anyway, Her miston started out with a three run lead in the first inning. Then a little later Heppner run in four. Hermiston tied the score. Then they run in three more. Heppner tied the score, then won the game by adding a couple more. That's the way the scoring went. , " Each team sarted oui by knocking the opposing pitcher out of the box. Montague for Heppner went out in the second inning, being replaced by Keough. A little later Phelps went the same route and Bobbie Woodard took the mound again for Hermiston. And young Bobble went mighty good for a while, too. That is, until he made the crack that be was just get ting warmed up just after the sixth inning. Which made Heppner pretty sore and they proceededito punish him ir the seventh. !, With the score tied in the fifth in ning it looked like Hermiston had won a ball game when Mittledorf picked one of Keough 's fast groove balls for a home run with two men on base. This Hermiston lad hadn't been hitting much, and he was about as surprised as anybody at his heroic feat. But he scored three good runs and gave Hermiston pretty lead. After, that Hertnistoqr .was .through. But not o Heppner. The home boys starting with Finch at the head of the batting order proceeded to have little batting practice in the sev enth and tied the score. They pock eted the game the next time up by adding two more. Hermiston tried to get a little mean in the ninth, but the prettiest double play of, the series ended it all. Soapie Jones started it. He got up and knocked a single. Blakely followed with a sacrifice. Soapie stole third, and things looked bad. Voyen came ir and knocked one down to Freddie on third. Whence Freddie and first sacker Anderson proceeded to make heroes of themselves. Freddie never hesitated. Neither did Mr. Anderson. Zip! Zip! And it was done. Mr. Voyen was cut off at first and Mr. Hoskins caught Soapie a clear six feet off home plate. Exit Hermiston, losers 9-7. Hermiston and Heppner probably will play the "rubber" at a later date. McTot and Nickerson umpired again and Jack McGinnis scored. Statistics for the three games follow: (Continued on Page Six) HIKING TRAFFIC IT'S HABD Mrs. E. L. Vinton of Coquille, Ore. and Mrs. A. W.

This'Hfeek By Arthur Brisbane Our Sun a Cannon. Apathetic Citizens. Rockefeller Builds. We Are Very Rich. Professor Snyder of the Philadel phia Observatory says the earth was shot into space by our sun, a sort of cosmic cannon. All "rotating suns," Bays he, thus shoot out planets and built up solar systems. It seems frightfully gigantic to us, hilt II hen Iflvin. an aatr u,stnl1 oaam just as impressive to a microbe. It seems reasonable that sui.s, like hens, should lay eggs, thu creating new organisms. Nature works along the same paths in biz and little things. John Hays Hammond says "the citi zens are apathetic,'' indifferent to public questions and they are. He wants a civic campaign to do away with public apathy. That won't work. If you want the public interested. you must make politics and pub'ie questions INTERESTING. The other day in an American com munity above the average in intelli gence, many citizens went to the polls to vote on a dog ordinance and re turned without taking the trouble to vote, at the same primaries, for mem bers of Congress. Ninety per cent of Americans, un less you arouse them with religions or racial antipathy, or with the high price of coal, feel that government is somebody else's business. John D. Rockefeller, Jr., invests in decent homes for working people at reasonable rents. Mr. Rockefeller's idea is to avoid charity, demonstrating that dwellings can be con-tructed on a big scale, with every comfort, including playgrounds "or chi'dren and private parks at tached to the buildings, bathrooms, ir-y:Lent doctor, etc., within moderate prices, about $9 per room per month. The thing will be done on a small scale at first, sufficient for a few hun dred families. Success might lead to the investment of hundreds of mil lions in such enterprises and enable families of small means to live in comfortable, healthful apartments at a rent no greater than has been charged by landlords in the slums. The plan won't please slum landlords. The President, in a thoughful sneeeh on th hntfept eava " V Uncle Sam is rich, that's true. We have actually $390,000,000 more than we need for 1926. But that is no ex cuse for squandering. We must be MORE economical, cut down expenses every year." Another cut of $836,193,888 reduces the public debt to nineteen billion six hundred and eight millions of dollars. If necessary, Uncle Sam could pay all that debt by using one third of the national income for ONE year. We are rich, but, as the President says, that is no excuse for waste. A magnificent new electric locomo tive, the world's largest and most powerful, weiehs 283.350 noting, is sixty-five feet long, driven by six mo tors, with 4,500 total horsepower. One man can handle this locomotive that will null an exnress train with ease at more than 100 miles an hour. Will it run between the Atlantic and the Pacific, cutting the time to two days? No, unfortunately, it will run in Switzerland, whpm tmTmmni owns railroads and seems to do well in spite of our theorv that government ownership cannot succeed. Perhaps tne owiss are abler than we are, per haps more honest, perhaps both. Dr. Butler says, "The world outgrew Communism 2.500 years ago, and So cialism in the Sixteenth centuiy." The world has never really TRIED Socialism or Communism, and never will. When socialistic and commun istic ideas are tried out we give them other names. A great public park, or magnificent public school, paid for by taxes, nr.d free to rich and poor, represents both communism and socialism. But we call such socialism "intelligent gov ernment.' CONDON VS. HEPPNER SUNDAY. The Condon ball team from the Mid-Columbia league will be the con tenders against Heppner in next Sun day's game at Rodeo field. Condon has a fast club and though they fin ished just outside the cellar in their league, they hope to take the lrcals into camp. Keough and Roberts will both be on hand to take care of the mound for Heppner. The play-oft game with Hermiston which was an nounced to take place Sunday has been postponed till a later date. HEAD CUT, WRIST DISLOCATED. John Eubanks, young son of Walter Eubanks of lone, received a bad cut on the head and dislocated his wrist Monday. With other boys the lad was swimming in the creek near lone and while diving hit the bottom a little too hard on account of shallow water. fortunately the accident was not more serious than a cut head and dislocat ed wrist. Dr. Johnston attended Johnnie and patched him up and he will be 0. K. soon.
