THEME ENCHANTING Brilliant Hues, Persian Setting and Costumes, Oriental Music, Dances All Make Romantic Appeal. A colorful and romantic bit of Persia as seen from a characteristic United States point of view was at tractively set out at the Star thea ter Tuesday night by the combined choruses of Heppner high school. The occasion was the presentation of the school's annual operetta, "In the Garden of the Shah," before one of the largest crowds ever present at auch an entertainment in Heppner. Intermingled chorus, solo, duet and dialogue .carried the story of two min ing engineers, employed by the shah, whose experiences laid mainly in two drastic love affairs; depicted Some crabba, a sheik, whose misguided de signs on the shah's fortune, uncov ered, led him to a woeful end; told of the fate of Samuel Johnson, re incarnated African king, who unsuc cessfully resisted the wiles of Now- obeh, old nurse of Zohdah, daughter of the shuh and beloved of Ted Hard ing, one of the engineers. A brightly vari-colored Persian garden with a wall behind, above which rose a bewitching Perrrian moon, was the setting for the three acts, while the chorus and lady prin cipals were all adorned in character istic Persian pantaloons, vests and caps of flushing and contrasting hues in keeping with the motif of the set lit.?. Cast as principals were Mary Rit chie. Zohdah; Grace Buschke, Lonian friend and confidant of Zohdah; Mae Uroshens, Nowobeh; Robert Turner and Gerald Slocum, Ted Harding and Billy Cummings, American mining engineers: Ellis Thomson, Samuel Johnson; Marvin Gsimmell, Perunah the Shah; Teriel Benge, Somecrabba the Arab Sheik. Zohdah and Ted Harding, Lohlah ana Billy Cummings, mutual love-at-first-Bight victims were the central futures, vh se courtships came to happy ending through the scheming of Nowobeh, who with bam Jonnson furnished an abundance of comedy The dramatic theme was all farcical with the ciimaxes alleviated by laugh- nrovokinc remarks, showing the com poters, May Hewes Dodge and John Wilson Dodge, to be masters of the musical comedy art. Dances set to ihe enchanting oriental music were employed to lend added beauty to the riesentation. ' Ail the perfrrmers, the majority of whom were making their debut in dra matic circles, are to be commended foi the ability dispUyed. Mits Rit chie, as Zohdah, was handicapped be cause of being impressed into th part but a week previous to the per formance when Edna Vaughn wai forced to auit by a touch of tonsil itis. She, nevertheless, did the part '.ommcmlably and is largely respon sible for the operetta having been nut on successfully. Two of th rerformers who deserve special men tion are Mae uroshens ana r.uii Thomson in the comedy parts wh made a big hit with the large aud ience. The presentation all told wai a large undertaking and the good showing made evidenced a great am ount of work in its preparation, both hv the cast and by Miss Wright, d rector. Miss Wright deserves th thanks of the entire community for her unselfish service. ' Mary Clark nssisuiiir artist, whose opening solo pleased very much, and John Conder, rccompanist, also deserve their share of the credit for helping mane tn show a success.

State Library Worker Makes Heppner Call Miss Eleanor Davis of Ontario, Malheur county, is in Heppner in the interests of the Oregon State Library and to assist the local library in get ting a good start on its year's work. She met with the library board of the Heppner Public Library association yesterday to discuss library problems, and is helping Miss Laura Williams, librarian, today in becoming better acquainted with her work. Mies Davis expressed her pleasure at the progress so far made by the library here, and assured the whole hearted support of Miss Cornelia Marvin, state librarian, and her staff of workers in giving all possible aid to the work here. While here Miss Davis will help the book committee i.i the selection of a number of new books the library will purchase to place on a rental shelf, to be started as soon as the books arrive.

May Take Over Black Butfe Lumber Mill THE LINE-UP Hoskins, c. Drake, Turner, p. P. Aiken, lb. Van Marter, 2b. Smith, Hisler, as. C. Cason, 3b. Allyn, Erwin, r. Anderson, m. G. Cason, 1. Fred J. Voight of Eugene., a lumber- an of extensive experience and at present interested in the planing mill business in his home city with the Terrill-Voight Planing Mill Co., was a visitor in Heppner over the week end, aking a survey of the holdings ol e Black Butte saw mill company ot Heppner. We understand that Mr. Voight is ell pleased with the situation as he found it here, and that a tentative deal has been entered into with the Black Butte people to take over their business just as soon as the details can be worked out. Mr. Fisher of the ennner company has become lnter- sted in a saw mill proposition at The es, and will go there, so it is un derstood, and he is negotiating with Mr. Voight to take over his holdings ere. Should Mr. Voight become owner of the Black Butte mill, it is s intention to make some valuable mprovements in the plant, using the resent mill for a short time only, nd later putting in a larger mill with and saws. The pine lumbering business of Morrow and Gilliam counties is De nning to look up quite a bit of late, and signs of real development are becoming manifest. . A new railroad s under construction out of Condon nto the Thirty Mile district, where the Kinzue Lumber company has ex tensive holdings of yellow pine tim ber, and Geo. W. Clark, local forester, nforms this paper that a large belt of very fine timber is to be opened up by the construction of the new railroad and putting in ot mills Dy the Kinzua people. Naturally Condon s quite pepped up over this develop ment, and it will be the means ot bringing that city much business. Mr. Clark states that this belt ot yel low pine is the finest in the Umatilla csorve. and he informs u.i that actual construction oh the logging road has begun. The headquarters of the com pany will be at Condon, ana it is ex pected that the large amount of lum ber manufactured from the Kimun holdings at the western extremity of the Umaitlla forest, and what will be nurchased from the government m the forest proper, will be marketed through Condon. Mr. Smith Will Head Condon Grade School Heppner has a formidable array of ball players for the initial game of the Morrow-Gilliam County league here Sunday with Condon. "Ducky" Drake, who pitched with Wasco last year will start on the mound. He has been playing baseball in the east ern Oregon bushes for years and knows just what to feed the Condon bunch. Fred Hoskins will receive Jam. Heppner needs no introduction 10 this husky gentleman from Rhea eek who was a factotum in the fast gang here the latter part of last season. L, Van Marter and Carl Cason are both back at their old stands at sec ond and third respectively, making only one new face to appear on the bases. That physiognomy belongs to no other than Paul Aiken, former Heppner regular outfielder, who looks like a million at first. Completing the infield crew is Gerald Smith, Heppner grade school principal, who gloms up the fast ones on short and throws with the exactness of a Wil- I'am Tell arrow. Not much need be said about Gay Anderson's propensity for getting un der the most difficult sky-scrapers in centerfield. Enough that he will be there. Guy Cason, who made his rep utation with the Egg City boys and ,vho played with Wasco last year, is slated to start in left, and Louie Allyn of last year's squad will Btart n right field. Another promising out- lielder, Harold Erwin, will be on hand n case of accident. Heppner is not depending wholly n Drake's heaving ability, either, as Lowell Turner has been showing stuff that it is believed will keep the Con Jon boys guessing for awhile in case lie is needed. lone will play Arlington in the oth er league opener Sunday. Though hey tasted defeat at the hands of Hormiston Inst Sunday, 3-2, they are playing mid-season ball already and will undoubtedly give Arlington a hot time. J. W. Cowins Honored On His 86th Birthday The home of J. W. Cowins was the scene of a pleasant party Monday eve ning, when a praty of Knights of Tythias made him a surprise visit in honor of his 88th birthday. His birth day anniversary was celebrated on Saturday, April 2. Mr. Cownis was feeling very well on thig occasion and evidenced his pleasure by being thus remembered. It has been some 40 years since he first came to Heppner and he enjoyed recalling events of the old days here. j He has been a K. of P. for 35 years, Having receiveu ma jewel in 1927. W. W. Smead present ed him with an emblematic watch fob in behalf of the local lodge as a birth day present. Light refreshments were served by Mrs. Wm. Cowins, Mrs. Emma Garri eues and Mrs. J. G. Cowins, daughters and granddaughter of Mr. Cowins, and the visitors left at an early hour. Among visitors present were W. W. Smead, Dr. A. D. McMurdo, Mr. llaird, Lee Sprinkel, Jasper Crawford and Harold Case. NEW COUNTY AGENT VISITS. Charles W. Smith, who is expected to become the new county agent of Morrow county by about the first of May, was a visitor here over the week end from his home at Dufur. Mr. Smith cume over Saturday, and with County Agent Morse, took in the meeting of Pjomona Grange at Mor gan, and on Sunday attended the meetnig of the Rhea Creek Grange. He assisted with the work of plant ing the spring wheat nursery on Eight Mile, which work was directed by G. A. Mitchell, assistant at the Moro experiment station. Mr. Martin, senior at 0, A. C, also helped with this planting. Following his grad uation in June, Mr. Martin will be with the Moro station and have charge of the plant breeding work. Mr. Smith expects to make other visits to this county before he getB established in the new position of county agent, Gerald Smith, who is principal of he grade school here, has decided to take the position the coming year with the Condon school, as principal of the grades in that city, succeed inir N. S. Rogers, resigned. The nlace in the Heppner scnool had been tendered Mr. Smith for an other year, but Condon was uble to offer better inducements in the way of salary, so Mr. Smith has wired his acceptance of the place there. The work of Mr. Smith here during the Dast vear has been very satisfactory. both in the school room and in the handling of athletics among the grade pupils, and we are sure that Condon has made no mistake in securing the services of such a capable instructor, though we regret that he has decided to leave Heppner. C. A. KANE SERIOUSLY INJURED While working with a tractor on the Wade plnce south of Arlington Monday afternoon, C. A. Kane, nus band of Mrs. Vivian Kane ot tin citv. was seriouslv injured. In at tempting to oil the mnchine while was in motion, the clothing of Mr. Kane was caught in the cogs and he was drawn in. Three ribs were bro ken, one of which punctured his lung, and he received other cuts and bruises. The injured man was imme diately rushed to the hospital nt The Dalles, where he is being cared for. Mrs. Kane, in response to word re ceived late Monday night, departed immediately for The Dalles to be with her husband, who is reported to he holding his own at this time, tho it was feared that his injuries might prove fatal.

Horse Permits Will be Gradually Eliminated The Hardman-Monument and Tam arack Horse and Cattlemen's associa tions have adopted a resolution barr ing all new or temporary permits for the running of horses on their re serves, and as the present permits expire they will be replaced by cattle, is the information given this paper this week by Geo. W. Clark, local forest supervisor. This policy looks to the elimination of the unclaimed, so-called wild horses that have been infesting the ranges for so many years, as it will give the proper authorities a chance to get hold of them and dispose of i nuisance to both cattlemen and sheep men. It gives the associations i chance to keep closer check on the .'tock that has been receiving free pasturage within the boundaries of their reserves. Car Upsets Coasting Down Heppner Hill The big sedan of James G. Thom son left the grade on Heppner hill lute Tuesday night and was consid erably damaged when it turned over in the ditch, some glass in the doors being broken and fenders on one side smashed. James Jr. was driving the machine and in the front seat with him were John Turner and Clinton Harper. The car had been thrown out of gear and was coasting down the grade when they struck the sharp turn. The boys state that the car had taken the ditch on the side of the road and struck a rock which caused the car to leave the grade- and pitch over on the top. That no more serious damage was done can be attributed to the strong construction of the cab of the car. The boys got out without injury, but orotty much excited over their nar tow escape. Yes, it's real home brew, folks not rot-gut moonshine, but the kind one inhales and becomes intoxicated with, not knowing that he has been exposed to intoxication at all. But the sad part to many no doubt will be that it is not to be drunk at all. It's intoxication is in the form of mirth, then tears, evoked by actors from Condon town. It will all come nbout next Tuesday night at the Star theater when the Condon American Legion post stages "Along the Mis souri," a comedy-drama in four acts. The actors will be accompanied by the Condon orchestra who will play jt the show, and then after the show is over, for the big dance in the Elks hall. The Elks are sponsoring the presentation for the purpose of rais ing money for their memorial fund. Word from Condon assures Hepp ner folks that they are in for a real treat. "Along the Missouri" drew ard pleased the larpest crowd ever assembled for a show in London, in fact, it went over so biglhat to sat isfy the demand it will be shown there again. LAD RECEIVES BAD WIRE CUT. RobeTU the 9-year-old son of Wm. Van Winkle of Lexington, was quite riously injured Wednesday eveing by being cut with barbed wire. He was riding a horse that ran into the fence with him. A barb took a bunch of hair off the horse and striking the right ankle of the lad, cut in to. the bone at the joint, taking out a por tion of the bone and depositing the hoir in the wound. Dr. McMurdo, who was called, found the injury quite serious but gave it the proper dress ing and hopes there will be no com plications. OBITUARY.
