GIVES LEX VICTORY
Technically, Lexington won Sun
day's football game from the locals
by the score of 10-3, when the two
town teams clashed on Rodeo field,
though actually the score was a 3-3
tie. The technicality came at the end
of the game. Hcppner punted to her
opponents just as the gun was fired
for the finish. The ball rolled across
the opponent's goal line, and the
Heppner players, thinking the game
was over, trotted off the field. , Bus
ter Gentry, Lex safety, thought the
play should be finished, however, and
ran to the opposite end for a touch
down. Goal was kicked, adding the
Both teams had previously scored
three points on drop-kicks, two of the
prettiest kicks seen on the local grid
in many a day. "Louie" Allyn booted
the pigskin across the bars for the
locals, and Vester Lane turned the
trick for the visitors.
With the addition of much "beef"
on both sides, the teams appeared
n.ore formidable, than did the lighter
crews in the game the previous week
on the Lexington field. Though pret
ty much of a punter's battle most of
the time, in which Gentry and Lane
featured for Lex, and Allyn and Aiken
for Heppner, there were occasions of
considerable brilliance. Lexington
completed a few passes, and Gentry
did some pretty broken field running,
along with a spectacular end run by
Parker. Heppner probably outshone
in the ground-gaining department,
however, when she took the ball near,
ly the full length of the field twice
in the second half, mostly via the
pass route Aiken to Allyn and vice
versa. Some good bucks by these
two and Stout and Adkins were mixed
in. Jack Hynd, Pendleton high school
player with Heppner for the game,
was the outstanding man on defense,
.lack repeatedly broke through the
opponents' line and made some beau
tiful tackles. "Buck" Lieuallen help
ed bolster up Heppner's forward wall

Elmer Slocum Passes
Suddenly at Lexington
The many friends of Elmer Slocum
residing at Heppner were shocked to
learn of his death at his home in Lex
ington on Monday morning. Mr. Slo
cum was a victim of paralysis, hav
ing suffered a stroke shortly after
4 o clock on Sunday evening, and at
about ten this was followed by an
other from which he became uncon
scious and did not rally, his death
coming at about ten o'clock- Monday
Few people here were aware of his
condition until the announcement was
made of his demise, and the friends
here were shocked by the news. Be
ing suddenly stricken as he was the
family of Mr. Slocum were greatly
shocked. He had suffered his first
stroke about two years ago and was
quite ill as a result for some time.
In fact he had never fully recovered
from that experience, but lately he
had appeared better than ever, and
was especially well on Saturday and
Sunday, giving no evidence of the
approach of another attack.
Funeral services were held at Ma
sonic hall in Heppner on Tuesday af
ternoon at 2:30 under the auspices
of Heppner Lodge No. 69, of which
the deceased was a member. The re
mains were taken to The Dalles Tues

Susquehanna county, Penn., July 21,
1867, and died at Lexington, Oregon,
November 1, 1926, aged 69 years, 3
months and 11 days. At the age of 21
he arrived at Heppner and since that
time has made his home here and at
Lexington. For the past 11 years he
has been agent of the O.-W. R. & N.
Co. at Lexington. He was married
in 1881 to Katie Morgan of Heppner,
and to this union seven children were
born, all of whom, with the widow,
survive him, as well as eight grand
children. The children are Mrs. Eliza

Mr. Slocum was a kind husband and
father and an excellent citizen. His
sudden departure from this life has
left a vacancy in the community af
fairs of his home town. He will long
be remembered by his friends be
cause of the many excellent qualities
that he possessed.
