Will the Eastern Oregon Tubercu--losis
hospital come to Heppner? It
will, if action taken by the Heppner
I uncheon club at its first meeting for
the fall on Monday succeeds In its
Following considerable discussion
of the matter, which indicated that
there is a good possibility of landing
w the project for Heppner, the club de.
cided to get behind the move. Though
Heppner fails to get the hospital, in
the opinion of Dr. A. H. Jonhston,
one of the prime movers, it will at
least gain some favorable advertising
well worth the money and energy ex
pended. Both Heppner physicians, Dr. A. D.
McMurdo and Dr. Johnston, believe
this locality to be ideally situated
for the successful operation of such
an institution. We have as moderate
a climate as can be found in eastern
Oregon with a maximum number of
sunshiny days. Our altitude is near
ly the same as that preferred for like
hospitals in other parts of the coun
try. These should bevital points to
be considered when the site is picked,
The law authorizing the establish
ment of the Eastern Oregon Tubercu
losis hospital was passed at the re
cent general election. The site will
be chosen under the prcsont state ad
ministration, as the bill set a limita
tion of 60 days for its placement.
Ihis matter is in the hands of the
state board of control, consisting of
Governor Pierce, Secretary of State
Kozer, and State Treasurer Kay.
It is understood a large number of
cities throughout Eastern Oregon are
making a bid for the hospital, with
the offer of free sites. And since no
definite word concerning the matter
has been given from official sources,
it is not known now who the strong
est contenders may be. La Grande
and Baker are in the race, as are also
Pendleton, Union, and Umatilla to
our east, while Bend, The Dalles, and
several other central Oregon towns
to the west believe they Bhould have
it. Local men believe, however, that
il the location is not manipulated too
much by politics, which would favor
the more thickly populated areas, and
is placed wholly on the merits of the
various sites offered, Heppner has a
good chance of getting it.
Merits of a good many different lo
cations about Heppner are now being
taken under advisement, with their
obtainability. Though no exact spec
ifications are in hand, it is believed
in the neighborhood of 200 acres of
land will be required, with plenty of
good water, hay and pasture land for
Ihe operation of a good-sized dairy,
as an abundance of pure whole milk
is required in the treatment of tu
berculosis. The matters of transportation and
accessibility have been mentioned as
probable drawbacks to Heppner being
favorably considered. This, however,
is believed not to be a serious ob
jection, for with the closing of the
gaps in the Oregon-Washington high
way and the Heppner-Spray highway,
Heppner's central location between
the two near equally populated dis
tricts of eastern Oregon, should give
a basis for more favorable consider
ation. MAPLE CIRCLE ELECTS OFFICERS.
At the regular meeting of Maple
Circle No. 269, Neighbors of Wood

Besides the initiation of a new mem

HENRY CARR FOUND DEAD.
The lifeless body of Henry Carr was
discovered at the county poor house in
' Heppner on Tuesday afternoon by
neighbors who had missed him for a
day or two, and became suspicious
that something had happened to keep
him in the house. He resided there
r.lone and his death was from natur
al causes. He is survived by several
children, all grown, who reside away
fiom Heppner, and for several years
has been a charge on the county, liv

FRED KIDDLE WINS
A surprise was sprung late last
week in the returns on the vote for
joint senator in this district. For
several days the figures placed Fred
Kiddie of Island City, several hun
dred votes ahead of his opponent,
Senator Henry J. Taylor cf Pendle
ton; then came a recount of the fig
ures in Umatilla county, and on the
face of the returns the Kiddle lead
was reduced to 46, awaiting the offi
cial count in Union county.
The official count of Union county
was made on Monday, and the Kiddle
lead was reduced two votes, making
his election secure over that of Sen
ator Taylor by just 44 votes. The
contest was a very close one, as was
that between Roy Ritner and Joseph
N. Scott both of Pendleton, for joint
represenative in the 22nd district.
Mr. Scott was winner by a pretty nar
Rod and Gun Club Has
Successful Bird Shoot
Though showers Saturday dampen
ed the turkey and beef shoot of the
Heppner Rod and Gun club starting
on that day, Sunday turned off clear
and bright with a consequent good
crowd and shooting was lively. Two
hundred turkeys and considerable
beef were disposed of. Besides a large
quota of local sportsmen, a number
o! outside nimrods were present to
participate. A party from Pendleton
including Guy Matlock, Mr. Collins,
Dr. Hanneman and Mr. Rice, took
away their allotment of birds.
Extra traps were fitted up for the
occasion, and blue rock shooting was
almost continuous during the day. A
range was also provided for rifle
shooting, for which prizs of beef were
offered. It is understood the club
netted about $100. Charles Latourell
club president, was master of cere
monies, and Andy Cook conducted a
lunch counter in the club house.

VALUE OF ATHLETICS.
Athletics are very important and
rre very necessary in any school no
matter how larg or how small. They
have a direct bearing on the individ
ual, the school, and the community.
An athlete is easily recognized by
his stature and appearance. He is
usually erect, has a well proportioned
body, and because he has developed
his muscle, he is very strong. He will
have a cleaner, clearer countenance
and will conduct himself with ease
and gracefulness. Not only will his
appearance be affected but his health
and moral attitude as well. He will
have the needed exercise to keep him
in good Health and will spend his time
learning the rules of good sports
manship rather than those of vice and
crime. An athlete will always have
many friends and be a leader in the
business and social life of the world.
The effect of athletics on the school
is nearly as great as that on the in
dividual. Athltics create companion
ship and school spirit. Any school
'ii order to have enthusiasm and pep
and to get the most out of their stud
ies must have, at times, some form of
recreation and amusement.
A community will show more inter
est in the school if there is some at
traction to encourage cooperation of
ihe community and school. Athletic
liaining is necessary to prepare the
coming generation for their work as
community leaders and because the
busy life of an athlete keeps him men
tally, morally, and physically pre
Heppner and Lex Grades Clash.
Last Saturday tho Heppner grade
school football team, under the tu
telage of Mr. Smith, the grade prin
cipal, wont down to Lexington and
succeeded in neatly trimming the Lex
aggregation to the tune of 39-8.
This was one of the most interest
ing games of the whole junior sea
son. At the outset things surely
looked bad for Heppner. The weather
was bad; the team was in poor spir
its, and when the game begun it
looked as though the much advertised
Lexington jinx was goiag to win the
gi me for them.
In the first quarter an eighty yard
run netted Lex their lone touchdown,
but that was all the Heppnerians
needed to show up their real worth.
From then on they proceeded to show
the Lexingtonians what real football
is. During the last half Lex rather
stuped a come-back and held the
Heppner team even, but it was too late
for 39 points had already been rolled
It is difficult to name the stars,

HERMISTON DEFEATS LOCALS
BY CLOSE SCORE OF 7-6
On last Friday the Heppner High
school football team journeyed to
Hermiston to match their skill against
the powerful Hermiston aggregation,
ihe latter wnining by the score of 7
to 6. It was a hard fought, clean
and well played game op. the part of
both teams. i i
Heppner succeeded in scoring first
on a completed pass, Gentry to Par
ker, and the first play in the second
quarter. Hisler's toe failed to make
the try for point goal when he at
tempted to drop kick for the extra
point. In the same quarter Hermis
ton began smashing the line for good
gains, and finally put the ball across
on a play off guard for a gain of eight
yards. The try for point was suc
cessful. The score then stood 7 to 6
in Hermiston's favor.
In the second half the playing was
tighter on both sides, however Hepp
ner had the ball in Hermiston's ter
ritory a greater portion of the time.
There were many exchanges of
punts, with Hisler of Heppner ex
celling, which resulted in large gains
in yardage for Heppner.
In the fourth quarter Heppner tried
a drop kick, but Bramer, who had
just entered and still a little stiff,
failed to make it good. The game
ended with Hermiston on the long
end of a 7 to 6 score.
The Hermiston team is a strong ag
gregation. Their outstanding play
ers were: fullback, right half, and
left tackle. For Heppner, Beckett at
right half, Parker at right end played
fine ball, with Doherty at center play
ing a good, consistent game.

twine around her little finger but who
has a will of his own at times; for in

of the Widow Hannigan he prefers to
remain a bachelor.
Other characters are, the young so
ciety people from Dublin, Lady Agnes
Baricklow and Eileen Fitzgerald, not
to mention Archibald Pennywitt, who
is to be recognized by his faultless
manners and sense of humor (?).
Rose's brother, Terence Creigan,
also has an importnat part. Maurice
Fitzgerald, mistaking him for Rose's

of Rose. The play is to be given at
