Indians Asked for 2nd;
Final Celebration Ar
rangements Made.
For the entertainment of the large
number of people who have said they
are going to stay home over Inde
pendence Day, the Heppner baseball
club has arranged a three-day sport
carnival for the 2nd, 3rd and 4th. The
Umatilla Indiana from the Blue
Mountain league have been asked to
play Heppner here Saturday and
promised to let the local club know
today whether they could come, but
at noon they had not been heard from.
But The Dalles will be here for BUre
the last two days. Their manager
said Tuesday that they would be here
Saturday night along with a bunch of
fans to attend the dance that eve
ning and were all hopped up to give
Heppner a drubbing. Manager Barr's
jang are determined they can't do it,
however, so good fast grimes may be
The Dalles is tied with Bend for
the championship of the Upper Co
lumbia league, which is an indication
of the strength of their team. Hepp
ner will have their whole gang on
hand, along with a reserve pitcher.
Strengthened this week by the addi
tion of Ward and Reimann, the boys
are feeling quite cnofident.
The ball games will be the major
attraction of the three days. Dances
will be held the evening of the first,
second and fourth, for which the best
outside music obtainable will be on
hand. Manager Barr is in Portland
this week and while there will en
deavor to obtain one of the leading
jazz orchestras of the city. The or
chestra from Rufus, with which local
people are acquainted, is also being
communicated with.
Then probably two, and at least one
good smoker using the best local tal
ent will be staged. It is believed
greater interset is had in local per
formers than in outside professionals,
and they do not demand so high re
muneration, making it possible to give
good entertainment in this line at a
reasonable admission price. Besides
these events, street races and other
athletic events now being arrnaged
will help giv"e those celebrating in
Heppner one of the best sport treats
they have had in many a day.
Time Short For Vets
to Reinstate Insurance
Urging World War veterans of this
community and state to avoid the in
evitable last-minute rush of wnr
risk insurance reinstatement, Ken
neth L. Cooper, Portland Regional
Manager of the U. S. Veterans' Bu
reau, is giving last minute warning
that July 2 of this year is the last
day that government insurnace will
be available. He asks that those en
titled to government policies, by rea
son of having had war insurance, take
action in this matter at the earliest
possible moment in order that every
application may be taken care of.
"The expiration date set by Con
gress for reinstatement of war in
surance is only about two weeks off,"
said Mr. Cooper. "There are hun
dreds of ex-service men in this state
who intend to take advantage of this
government benefit before July 2, as
shown by requests for blanks and
forms. Action should not be delayed
until the last minute. There is bound
to be a rush of applications during
the iHst two or three days. There
fore, it is urged that action on this
matter be taken now.
"The privilege of converting term
insurance, now held by thousands of
veterans throughout the country, into
the five-yera level-premium or one of
the permanent government policies
is also limited tt July 2. Six forms
of endowment and life policies are
available. The fact that private in
surance companies highly endorse
these policies show their value. Vet
erans who are hesitating to reinstate
because of financial reasons should
consider the five-year policy whicn
allows conversion to a permanent
policy nt a later date."
Application blanks and instructions
may be Becured from the local Red
Cross chapter, American Legion post
oi by letter from the Regional Office
of the Veteran's Bureuu, Wood-Lark
Building, Portland, Oregon.

The next and probably the last
membership meeting of the Pendle
ton Commercial association this sum
mcr will be held Thursday evening nt
6:30. The board of managers may
have a new constitution and by-laws
for the approval of the membership.
In addition, a condensed program of
work will be briefly presented for
the approval or disapproval of the
members. Officers of the Heppner
commercial club and some members
of the Heppner city council have been
invited to attend the meeting as
guests of the local group to strike
up an acquaintanceship in that terri
tory, which will be opened to Pendle

Dallas Ward, who played center
field and second base for Heppner
Sunday in the game with lone, cali
brated his return to Morrow county
from O. A. C. where he was promin
ent in a number of athletic teams, by
hitting a drive over the center lot
fence for a home run. Hoskins
scored on the hit also. This was in
the fifth inning after Heppner had
r heady gleaned two runs in the third
via. Erwin's walk, Guy Cason's three
bagger and Aiken's single. Ward sin
gled and scored again in the eighth
for Heppner's fifth and final score,
and a four-run lead. Ione's lone tally
came in the seventh by Davidson who
singled and made it on around when
some of the locals took to the air
for awhile.
"Ducky" Drake is admitted to have
the Indian sign on the lone batters.
He held them to no hits through the
sixth and only allowed three all told.
Heppner got six hits off Collins. La
Mear, who has been receivnig Drake
in fine shape all season, should be
given his share of the credit, too. He
kept opposing runners tied closely to
the bases, and nipped the only at
tempt to steal when he caught W.

Anderson and Van Marter were both
absent from the lineup, being at East
Lake on a fishing jaunt. Their ser
vices were well replaced, however, by
Ward, Turner and Reimann, the lat
ter a trainman on the branch, who
showed well during his short sojourn
at second.
Heppner now has undisputed claim
to the Morrow-Gilliam pennant with
a record of ten straight wins since
the first game which they dropped to
Condon. The boys play the last game
of the league schedule at Condon next
Sunday, while Arlington goes to lone.
Condon won from Arlington Sunday
with a score reported to be 18-6.

Death came to Mrs. Mary Lieuallen
at the home of her daughter, Mrs.
John H. Padberg in this city, on Fri
day evening, June 17, following an
illness of many months, during which
time Mrs. Lieuallen was a sufferer
from diabetes. The remains were
taken to her home at Weston where
the funeral services were held in the
Methodist church on Monday. Mrs.
Lieuallen was 76 years of age, and
was the daughter of Taylor Green, one
of the earliest settlers in the Weston
country. She had made her home
with her daughter here for the past
few years. Mrs. Lieuallen is sur
vived by four children, Jesse A. Lieu
allen of Walla Walla, Wash.; Charles
W. Lieuallen of Tncoma, Wash.; and
Joseph S. Lieuallen and Mrs. Delia
Padberg of Heppner, Ore. Also sur
viving are six grandchildren and ten
great grandchildren.
What is declared to be the highest
price paid for wheat land since the
war was announced at Pendleton on
Tuesday in conection with the clos
ing of a deal for 183 acres a mile
northeast of Athena, involving a con
sideration of $45,000 or $245.90 per
acre, states the East Oregonian. The
land belonged to the heirs of the W.
P. Willaby estate and was sold to
George Sheard, prominent Umatilla
county wheat farmer who owns ad-'
joining wheat land.
The sale shows an upward trend in
the price of good wheat lands, though
the tract sold is considered one of the
choicest pieces in the county. Ac
cording to Mr. Sheard, who has leased
the land in previous years, the yield
has averaged 48 bushels to the acre
for the past ten crops.
John Kilkenny, who has been in
disposed at his home on Hinton creek
during the past week, is reported to
be better now and able to be about
Mrs, Ed Burchell of Lexington who
has been ill at the Morrow General
hospital, has returned home.
Twelve measures will be submitted
to the people of Oregon at the spec
ial election next Tuesday. Ten are
referred by the legislature and" two
by referendum petition of the people,
So far interest manifest locally in
the election is near zero, making It
probable that a light vote will be
cast. This should not be the case,
however, when the importance of
some of the measures is considered.
More attention has been given the
income tax measure endorsed by Gov
ernor Patterson than any other. This
bill differs materially from other bills
presented for approval the last few
years. Hence it has met opposition at
the hands of Pierce's tax supporters
as well as a large number of the op
ponents of that measure. The Pat
terson administration has presented
this bill in the form of what it de
clares to be a more just and equitable
tax, as the only means of raising rev
enue to meet the state financial def
icit. It's opponents declare it would
provide only an additional tax and
encourage state officials in their
spending orgy at a time when great
er economy should be practiced. They
cite instances of proposed spending,
Buch as the new state office building
to cost $800,000, where the adminis
tration appears not to be in a mood
for economy. This question there
fore appears to have resolved itself
into whether the state should have
more money to spend or keep its dis
bursements within the revenues al
ready provided. Arguments pro and
con will be found in the voters' pam
phlet, now in the hands of all regis
tered voters.
Then again we have the "Repeal of
Negro, Chinamen and Mulatto Suff
rage Section of the Constitution."
Every voter should readily recognize
this inscription, as it has appeared
innumerable times on the ballot. The
section of the constitution which this1
amendment hopes to repeal was made
null and void wtih the passage of the
15th amendment to the United States
constitution. It is a dead section.
The reason for the measure appear
ing on the ballot is to get authority
from the people to wipe it off the
state statutes so that it will not have
to be transcribed with each recoda-
tion of the statutes. Every time the
amendment has come up it has been
defeated. The boys in blue decided
the question of right in the matter
back in the 60's; there should be no
hesitancy in voting for the amend
"Portland School District Tax Levy
Amendment" has little bearing on
Eastern Oregon. It is a matter which
may well be left to the people imme
diately affected to settle, if not thor
oughly understood. Affirmative ar-
gumeut only appears in the pamphlet.
School Election Monday
Draws Small Attendance
While the attendance at the annual
school meeting of District No. 1 was
a little better than common, there was
little excitement over the election
and but three candidates were in the
field for director. When the election
of director was called by Mrs. Ealor
B. Huston, chairman of the board,
and acting chairman of the annual
meeting, the names of Chas. Thomson,
F. R. Brown and Claude Cox were
placed in nomination. Upon ballot
being taken, Mr. Thomson was found
to be practically the unanimous
choice of the electors present, and
out of 20 votes cast he received 17.
Vawter Crawford was reelected clerk
without opposition.
Mr. Thomson was the retiring di
rector, having been elected to fill out
the unexpired term of the late C. E.
Woodson. The report of the clerk
was read, which shows the district to
be in splendid condition, financially.
There was no discussion of school
matters, and the meeting seemed to
be well satisfied with the manner in
which the business of the district is
being conducted.
The eastern Oregon convention of
Neighbors of Woodcraft at Bend last
week was attended by eight dele
gates from Heppner and 115 from the
district. Local delegates returning
yesterday declare ijt to have been one
of the very best conventions of rec
ord. Those attending from here were
Mrs. Henry Howell, Mrs. M. R. Fell,
Mrs. J. G. Cowins, Mr. and Mrs. John
Hiatt, Mrs. Frank Rasmus, Mrs. John
Cason, Grace Buschke, Mrs. Orve
Brown. Alice Rasmus was elected
district officer from the local lodge.
The convention next year will be
held at Bend. Minnie Hiner, grand
guardian, complimented the Heppner
lodge as being the best lodge in the
We wish to sincerely thank our
friends and neighbors who so kindly
tendered their help and sympathy at
the time of our bereavement.

"Criminal Information Amendment"
was introduced solely for the purpose
of expediting the handling of crimin
al cases in which the defendant de
sires to plead guilty. It does rot
affect the present grand jury system
in other instances. Affirmative argu
ment only in pamphlet.
"Legislators' Pay Amendment"
which would increase legislators' pay
over amounts now received, has argu
ments both for and against in the
pamphlet. It is admitted legislators
cannot pay expenses with present re
muneration. What should they re
ceive? Read the arguments and see
if you 'believe the compensation pro
vided in the amendment is just and
adequate. You are the legislators'
"Voters' Registration Amendment"
would do away with swearing in vot
ers at electinos and with it alleged
misuse of the ballot. Strong argu
ments appear in the pamphlet, and the
question should be thoroughly un
derstood for intelligent voting.
The "State and County Officers
Salary Amendment" is self-explanatory
on the ballot. However, there
may be a joker in it, as suggested by
the negative argument in the pam
phlet. Brought up as an economy
measure, its opponents believe it
would prove unjust and discrimina
tory in operation. Be sure before
you vote.
"City and County Consolidation
Amendment" affects only Portland
and Multnomah county. Again, if not
informed, let those immediately con
cerned settle the matter.
"Veterans' Memorial and Armory
Amendment" would provide a means
for Portland veterans to build a me
morial and armory building. This af
fects only Multnomah county.
"State Tax Limitation Amendment"
would provide a new base for com
puting the 1928 state tax levy. This
is made necessary, according to the
pamphlet, because of the base being
lowered in 1924 by enactment of the
income tax. There is no argument
in the pamphlet against.
"Property Assessment and Taxa
tion Enforcement Bill" would give
the state tax commission a great deal
of power which might work either for
good or bad. It aims at bringing all
assessable property into the open that
it may share its just part of the tax
burden. It might, however, have the
effect of making tax paying much
more unpleasant. This is a good bill
to put in some last minute study on.
"Nestucca Bay Fish Closing Bill"
brings up an old bone of contention,
namely: whether sportsmen or com
mercial fishermen shall be favored in
enjoying the benefit of state re
sources; especially the former to the
exclusion of the latter. Negative ar
gument only appears in the pamphlet.
Plans for New School
Gymnasium Are Here
The plans and specifications for
the new auditoriunugymnasium to
be erected by Scholo District No. 1,
arrived from the architect the first
of the week, and in another column
appears the call for bids on construc
tion of the building.
These plans call for reinforced con
crete construction and the building
will be an imposing one when com
pleted, which event it is hoped will
be accomplished by the time school
opens in the fall, or very soon there
Justus A. Miller, a resident of the
Hodsdon neighborhood where he has
lived the life of a recluse for many
years in a small cabin on a 70-acre
tract of land, was brought to Hepp
ner Tuesday evening, suffering from
mental aberration. Upon being ex
amined Wednesday he was found to
be insane and was committed to the
eastern Oregon asylum at Pendleton.
The peculiar actions of Miller for
some time past aroused the suspicions
of his negihbors, and he seemed po
sessed with the idea that someone was
coming to kill him. While apparently
in good health, it is thought that he
is suffering from some physical ail
ment, and that proper treatment for
a time at the hospital will restore
his mental balance. Miller claims to
be 63 years of age, is a native of Ger
many Bnd has been a resident of this
county for many years. He was taken
to Pendleton Wednesday.
All livestock brands in the state
must be re-recorded by September 1.
This is the word being sent to county
clerks of the state by W. H. Lytle,
state veterinarian, who is also mail
ing blanks to all present holders of
livestock brand certificates. The re
recording of the brands is necessary
so that many brands that are no long
er used may be issued to new appli
cants, Mr. Lytle stated. New blanks
for brands will be in the hands of the
county clerks in July for all those
who have not received copies from
the state veterinarian.

An interesting letter published in
the Hood River News wasjianded this
paper last week too late for publica
tion. The communication is from
Earl Spaulding, son of Rev. F. R.
Spaulding of this city, who is in
business in Paris, and was present at
the historical landing of Captain
Charles Lindbergh on Le Bourget
field from his New York to Paris non
stop flight. Mr. Spaulding's letter as
printed in the News follows:
"Mrs. Spaulding and I have just had
the pleasant experience of being a
part of the thousands who were at the
Le Bourget flying fields to greet Cap
tain Lindbergh, when he successfully
completed his New York-Paris flight.
"Naturally we had been keeping in
close touch with events from the mo
ment he had been reported to be on
his way. The local Paris-American
newspapers had sent out two bulletins
during the afternoon that he had
been seen by passing ships, and if
nothing unforseen happened, should
land between 9 and 10 o'clock that
"We arrived at Le Bourget Field
about 8 o'clock. This field is five
miles from the city limits of Paris,
and the crowd, which was soon to
reach huge proportions, had already
made a good showing. We were very
fortunate in being able to get on the
roof of one of the buildings on the
grounds, from which point we had a
splendid view of all that was going on.
Local aviators kept us entertained
by giving stunt performances. I have
seen many of these before, but never
had seen so much daringi continuous
and bunched, as we witnessed that
"As the shadows lengthened with
the approach of darkness, and the
stunt aviators had taken their ma
chines to the hangars, a report ar
rived that Lindbergh had failed. This
was very easy to believe, since the
Nungessor-Coli tragedy is still fresh
in the minds of all. With receipt of
this news, a pall seemed to settle over
the great crowd. Then all was very
quiet, as the huge searchlights began
to throw their long rays into the sky
and search for signs of the aviator.
Every few minutes great rockets and
flares were sent up in the hope that
the expected plane would be disclosed.
But the minutes lengthened, until it
was ten o'clock. Still the minutes
slipped away when, suddenly the
straining ears of the vast crowd pick
up the steady drone of an airplane
motor. Once more the huge beams of
the searchlight swept the sky in the
direction from which the drone was
heard. And then one began to pick
up Lindbergh's silver plane, and a
flood of light showed him the way to
the landing field. Like a great bird,
dropping plane circled the field three
times before gliding to a landing
that was perfect.
"Someone here has said: "If ten
thousand devils were summoned in a
mad dance to strike simultaneously
all of the tocsins in this land, the din
and bedlam they would raise could
never equal the frenzied enthusiasm
and the hysterical roar that swept
across the field as Lindbergh brought
his silver gray plane to a perfect
landing in the glare of the powerful
flood lights, which illuminated the
"Almost limp and completely be
wildered by the lights and huge flood
of swirling humanity which milled
aiound him, Lindbergh finally broke
into a broad grin.
"'Am I here? Am I here? Is this
really Paris?' he gasped. A minute
later it appeared as if he was going
to collapse, and those at his side were
unable to do much for him for bedlam
had broken loose, and thousands were
racing across the field to get a glimpse
pf the hero and his wonder machine.
The heavy wire strand fence, which
had been erected to keep the crowds
away from the plane, crumpled like
so much thread. Soldiers in vain
tried to stem the human tide with
the butts of their rifles. But it was
useless and it seemed as if both avia
tor and his plane would be carried
away by the flood of human beings
who were swept towards him.
"Then somebody performed a re
markable ruse. One of the onlookers
was seized, hoisted on to shoulders of
those near, and amid cheers, was
rushed in the general direction of
the reception hall. The mob lmme
diately followed, nad the pressure on
the real Lindbergh and his plane was
at once relieved. And before any
one was wise to what had happened
French aviators had rushed Lind
bergh into a nearby hangar, where he
was massaged and treated by resident
American doctors, and transported to
the home of Ambassador Herrick,
where he was immediately put to bed
for. a much-needed and well-earned
"After we had examined the plane
and touched it, as everyone was try
ing to do in a spirit of affection for
the hero who had traveled alone in it
across the Atlantic, our next thought
was how were we going to get bnck
to our home in Paris. We secured a
taxi cab, but it took us several hours
to reach the city, so dense wa3 the
crowd. There were three others be
sides ourselves in the car, and when
the crowd lenrned that we were Amer
icans and had actually touched Lind
bergh's plane, everybody wanted to
touch our hands, or our clothing, bo
that they could tell their folks that,
although they had been unable to get
even near the plane, they had been
fortunnte enough to touch someone
who had actually touched the plane.
"The welcome to Lindbergh was
tiue and sincere, straight from the
hearts of the French people, and
Lindbergh's flight has done more to
help the French-American spirit of
friendship than a host of diplomats
could ever do.
"Best regards to all friends.1
Roy Campbell Farm
Home Bums Tuesday
The residence of Roy Campbell, on
the farm of his father, W. T. Camp
bell, was totally destroyed, together
with the contents a little after seven
o'clock Tuesday morning. The fire
was the result of one of the little
boys playing with matches and it
spread through the house so rapidly
that there was no chance to remove
any of the contents, and the family
and hired help busied themselves in
saving the barn and nearby buildings.
The older members of the family
were out about their work, Mr. Camp
bell himself being about a quarter of
a mile from the house when he no
ticed the smoke and gave the alarm.
The children had been left asleep in
one of the bedrooms while Mrs. Camp
bell was out doing some chores, and
one little fellow went into an adjoin
ing room where he got hold of some
matches. When questioned the lad
stated how it happened, and his state
ment seems to be reasonable. The
little baby, but a few months old, was
the concern of Mr. Campbell when he
first discovered the fire, and he
rushed to the bedroom Bnd rescued
the child, the other children having
made their escape, but there was no
chance to gather up any of the cm
tents. The residence carried some
insurance but the household goods
were not insured. There was no
breeze at the time, and because of
this fact it was possible to save the
fine big barn and other buildings
near by.
A license to wed was issued by
Clerk Anderson on Saturday to Guy
Glen Brock and Jennie Smith. The
couple was later married at the home
of Mr. and Mrs. O. J. Cox in Lexing

Christian church there. The bride
groom was formerly a resident of
Morrow county, and the bride is from
Dallas, where she has been engaged
in teaching.
Mrs. Walter Shaw of Vancouver, B.
C, is visiting at the home of Mr. and
Mrs. Jack Hynd at Cecil. She is a
sister-in-law of Mrs. Hynd and the

are planning on a trip to Canada in
a couple of weeks and will be accom

delegates to the district convention
from Maple Circle of Heppner. They
returned home Wednesday evening.
Mr. and Mrs. J. G. Cowins and Mrs.
M. R. Fell departed early Sunday
morning for Bend. The ladies were
delegates to the district convention
of the Neighbors of Woodcraft in

The President will call a special
session of Congress for October, to
Uike up the Mississippi flood disaster
and the prevention question. The
sooner prevention is discussed and
arranged the better. The American
Congress and people have a great
faculty for forgetting even a two
billion-dollar calamity and 700,000
people being made homeless.
Twice in succession, American fliers
have crossed the Atlantic at one 'hop,"
Lindbergh flying to Paris, Chamberlin
with Levine, almost to Berlin.
What will military and naval gen
tlemen say now about their theory
that "The airplane is no real menace
to this country"?
Out of two attempts to fly across
the ocean by American fliers, both
What would be the probable per
centage of success if five thousand
foreign aviators, with full govern
ment backing and unlimited expendi
ture of money, should fly the other
way on a hostile errand?
Americans should take to heart the
lesson that Lindbergh and Chamber
lin have taught us and get ready to
keep fliers away from this continent.
Five or ten thousand hrst-class
planes, carrying mail parcels and pas
sengers in peace, ready to take out
machine guns in war, would be the
best investment this rich nation
could make.
Golf, according to accident insur
ance companies, comes third among
dangerous sports. Victims of 451
golf accidents collected insurance
last year. Twelve for cuts with sharp
instruments." The instruments were
bottles, on the "19th hole." How

hundred die for lack of exercise, so
play golf.
A German scientist says your heart
is less important than the billions of
cells that make up your body. The
heart is important, of course, but the
cells, eating, drinking, digesting, each
living a separate life, are more im
portant than the heart, even in blood
The human body is like a nation.
Brain and heart are the government.
The cells are the citizens, and most
Dr. Mendelssohn, of Berlin Univer-
sity, says, "The secret of life is the
ability of living cells to effect change
of matter and absorb and eject fluids.
This change of fluids seems to be the
principal cause of blood circulation."
The secret of making life worth
while is the ability of the living
brain to accept and absorb new ideas.
That is the principal cause of human
Students at Oxford worry because
women are to teach there. "Isis,"
read by the Oxford young gentlemen,
says that wilt eventually lead to a
sex war, and is "a social revolution of
the utmost significance."
Women are natural teachers; teach
ing has been their business from the
beginning; teaching children, teach
ing husbands.
Hypatia, a better mathematician
and philosopher than her father,
Theon, was one of the greatest teach
ers that ever lived, until fanatical
early Christian monks tore her from
her chariot, as she was going to her
school, and murdered her, more than
1,500 years ago.
The college boy or adult citizen
lacking respect for women or confi
dence in their power, judgment and
goodness, pays a poor compliment to
his own mother.
If you mention Salvation to some
people you will see them smile. The
idea seems to be that anyone who
speaks in that way is at least a bit
silly. Is it not just possible that the
smiler betrays his own ignorance?
What are we to be saved from? and
how? "Our Sins and Our Savior" is
the topic ' to be discussed at the
Church of Christ on Sunday evening.
The morning discussion will be
based on the fifth chapter of the
Ephesian letter.
There is also a welcome for you at
Bible school and Christian Endeavor.
