mm Volume 44, Number 13. HEPPNER, OREGON, THURSDAY, June 23, y27 Subscription $2.00 a Year THE DALLES TO PLAY 3-4 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 expected. 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. LOCAL MEN ASKED TO MEETING. Pendleton East Orcgonian. 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.

LOCALS TROUNCE I0NEAGAIN,5T01 Drake Allow but Three Hits; Ward Celebrates Homecoming With Homer. League Standing! Won Lost Pet. Heppner 10 1 .909 lone 6 5 .645 Condon 5 6 .455 Arlington 3 8 .273 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. Rietmann at second by a beautiful peg. 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.

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. LAND BRINGS GOOD PRICE. 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 again. Mrs, Ed Burchell of Lexington who has been ill at the Morrow General hospital, has returned home. INCOME TAX AMONG VOTER INTERESTS AT JUNE 28 POLLS 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 ment. "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. CIRCLES MET AT BEND. 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 district. CARD OF THANKS. We wish to sincerely thank our friends and neighbors who so kindly tendered their help and sympathy at the time of our bereavement. Mr. and Mrs. J. It. Padberg and Famly.

"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' paymaster. "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 after. TAKEN TO PENDLETON HOSPITAL. 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. BRANDS MUST BE RE-RECORDED. 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. EASTERN STAR NOTICE.

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 night. "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 evening. "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 aerodrome.' "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 rest. "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. LOCAL NEWS HEMS 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 ton by E. L.

This Week I2k By Arthur , Brubanc Flood Relief Session Lesson for Uncle Sam Your Important Cells Women Natural Teachers 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 succeed. 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 ever, for one man injured at golf, one- 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 circulation. The human body is like a nation. Brain and heart are the government. The cells are the citizens, and most important. 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 progress. 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. DO YOU SMILE? 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. MILTON W. BOWER, Minister. CARD OF THANKS.
