TRYOUTS ON SUNDAY Buckers Show Stuff Early; Entrance Lists to be Larger Than Ever; Business Houses to Close. The sun begins to shine, after two week of rain, to add to the brighten ing prospects for the Heppner Rodeo, now just a week away. The entire string of bucking bron chos is in.

North Morrow Fair Good Despite Backward Spring The editor of this paper, who was an interested visitor on Saturday, the last day of the North Morrow fair at Boardman, failed to pass any com ment on this enterprise in last issue, because of lapse of memory on hip part, and a rush of other matters. We had missed the second annual event, and this last exhibit of the communities of Boardman and Irri gon could only be compared with the first effort of these people, and we felt that it was quite a bit short of the showing made in 1925. The prin cipal reason for this, however, was the severe frosts that killed off the most of the fruit crop on the north end projects this year, and there was, as a consequence, no fruit exhibit. These stood out large in the fairs of '25 and '26 and added much to the effectiveness of the display; frost also got in its work -4his Beason on much of the garden products and the vegctablo section was somewhat short of other years. These are conditions, however, that the people on the nro- jects are nt responsible for, and it snouia De said to their credit that tney made the best of the situation. and had a wonderful display in va rious lines. Both projects are comincr tn th front along many lines of horticul ture and agriculture, dairying and bee culture and the fair temohasizes in a large degree the progress being maue. a very notable display was in the domestic art department: this was large and the work all of a high order. We hope that the coming sea son will be more productive along all lines at Irrigon and Boardman, so mat next fall's display at the com. munity fair will be, if possible, better than that of the fall of 1925. It is really wonderful what can be pro- uucea on tnese irrigated projects and the people of these communities are to be commended in their efforts to make an interesting display of meir proouce ana handiwork each season. School Enrollment Grows Second Week With considorably over three hun dred pupils registered in the grades of the Heppner public Bchools, and with more than one hundred in hieh school, attendance this year bids fair 10 outstrip all previous records. Due to Labor day fallfng upon icBitranon aay ana the necessarv interruption caused by institute, the scnools got a rather poor start and many pupils delayed their reiristra- tion until last Monday. At that time, nuwever, a large number of both new and old students anneared. ami while several pupils are said to be delaying their entrance until after Rodeo, it is thought .that the larirer number of those who intend to en ter are already in school. A word of caution is given bv Superintendent Burgess against de- aying school entrance until after Ro deo. By. that time the work of the schools will be so well under way that those who stay out until that time will be reriously handicapped m getting a start. It has always been a custom of the schools to dismiss upon Friday in order to allow all interested to attend the "biz show." urid tho administration if the schools feels that school children who re main out of school simply to attend the Rodeo are making a serious mis take. ; The heaviest registration occurred in the eighth grade, where some 87 pupils are finishing their grade school careers under Mr. Dnn Beighle. Regis tration in the lower gradew is uni versally heavy, with 31 in both, the hrst and third grades and 33 il the second. A number of pupils from outlying districts are registered in the high chool tins year, making the enroll ment tlioce nlrendy comfortably large. , WILL GIVE RECEPTION.

Was Early Settler in Butter Creek Country. Funeral services for Malcolm S. Corrigall, prominent ranchman of Butter creek and president of th First National bank of Heppner, weic held on Tuesday afternoon at the Fpiscopal church in Heppner, Rev. Stanley Moore . presiding. The at tendance was large and a great many of the neighbors and friends from Butter creek came to show their re spects to one who had been a resident of their community for so many long years. The funeral appointments were all simple and in keeping with the. desires of 'the departed. Mr. Cor rigall was a life-long member cf the Presbyterian church and in his later days was a close student of the Bible. He chose his scripture text and songs for the service and in this his wishes were carried out. Burial was in Ma sonic cemetery. Rev. Moore conduct ing the commitmentlserviceB. Malcolm S. Corrigall died at his home on Butter creek, near Echo, on Saturday, September 10, 1927, being aged 70 years, 11 months and 10 days. He suffered a paralytic stroke about five weeks ago, which later caused his death. Mr. Corrigall was a tiative of the Orkney Island, Scotland, where he was born September 18, 1857. His father died when he was about four years of age and he continued living with his mother and four brothers un til he was 18. He then moved to Can ada where he lived with an uncle for a short time before coming to Ore gon and locating on the Butter creek place that has continued to be his home ever since. He was married to Issabella F. Randall of Commack, On tario, Canada, February 8, 1887, and to this union there were born seven children, two dying in infancy. Be- ldes his widow he is survived by five children, Mrs. Luciebell O'Brien, Uaiph Corrigall and Violet Corrigall of Echo, Bubina Corrigall and Mrs. Mary Hoskins of Heppner. Besides these, there are seven grandchildren, a brother, TVm. Corrigtll of Scotland, rnd a nephew, Herbert Corrigall of Westfall, Oregon. From the time of his arrival in Ore gon, Mr. Corrigall was interested in the seep industry and had acquired ! une of the best ranches on Butter creek. In August, 1909, he became identified with the First National bank of Heppner as president and principal stockholder. He was a quiet man, .Successful in his business trans actions and made friends wherever he went. GET FIRST 1927 BUCKS. Dave Wilson and Alva Jones were among Heppner mmrods who were out after deer early on the opening date, and soon landed a buck each.

(Continued on Pan Two) Deer Plentiful, But Hunters Get We With the opening of the deer sea son on Saturday, hunters by the doz. ens from all parts hied themselve to the timbered Blue mountains, to be greeted by rain, rain and more rain. They got wet and hunting wai not so good. Nevertheless, quite number of lifeless horned denizens qf the forest have been brought in and through town this week. D. A. Wilson and Alva Jones, who went out Friday evening and began hunting early the next morning with E. R. Schaffer on Freezeout, were the first back to town with deer, coming in Saturday with a buck apiece. Wil son's weighed in at the Peoples Hard ware company, where a prize is being offered for the largest buck weighed on their scales, at 198, while Jones weighed 160.

Rood Eckleberry of lone suffered very severe injuries on Wednesday evening when his motorcycle collided with the rear end of the L. P. David son car just below lone. He reports that ir piece of gravel from the road struck him in the eye and this caused him to lose control of his machine, the accident following. While no bones were broken, he was seriously cut about the face, body and legs by the impact of his body with the gravel in the road and it was necessary to have his injuries attended by a phy sician. Eckleberry is at Heppner Sur gical hospital where he will have to remain for some days while he re covers. Mr. and Mrs. C. A. Ball of Portland were in Heppner Tuesday evening on their way to the Round-Up. They visited with Mayor Noble and wife and t. E. Notson and family.

With over seventy pedagogues in ttendance from all parts of the county, the annual teachers' institute of Morrow county opened for busi ness at 9 o'clock lost Thursday mern ing. It has been the custoh for some time in Morrow, as well as ,in many other eastern Oregon counties, to hold teachers institute early in the year. to avoid bad weather and poor roads. The wisdom of this move was appar- nt in this institute for good weather prevailed during the entire session, making iniform attendance possible. A strong corps of instructors was on hand from the various institutions of higher education throughout the tate. The University of Oregon was represented by Prof. W. G. Beattie of the extension division who delivered a series of lectures to high school and upper grade teachers. Professor Beattie covered the social sciences, history and civics, and for the most part his discussion dealt with the best methods of teaching these subjects. Ut especial interest to lower grade teachers was the work of Miss Emma Henkle and Miss Katharine Arbuthnot if the Oregon Normal school. Both of these lad:es are authorities in their respective fields, and Miss Henkle's lectures on primary methods and Miss Arbuthnot's discussions of grade geography, reading, etc., were well received. Chester L. Ward, an in structor at Oregon Normal, also de livtTLd several asvemhlv laptitroe aa weir as group talks to tipper grade teachers. Mr. Ward treated the at tendance problem to a very searching analysis, and in a later lecture dealt at some length with the schools of Great Britain and the United States. He made some very interesting com parisons between the two systems in the course of his talk. A verv unusual and ovtrmoW int,. esting feature of the institute was an exhibit of school art under the (lirection of Miss Margaret McDevitt. series of talks on grade art wat also delivered by Miss McDevitt. General assemblies during the en tire session were presided over by Supt. Burgess while Miss Vail, Mrs. Rodgers, Mr. Tolles, and Miss Ging rich presided over the grade, high school and art sections respectively. un ihursday evening the visiting teachers, instructors and patrons of he school were given a very pleasant reception in the parish house by the entertainment committee of the in stitute. Teachers and instructors alike forgot their dignity and frolick ed like children until refreshments were served. A more than usually large percent age of strange faces was noted at the institute this year, and a few that had been familiar tc Morrow county people for some years were missing. Both the instructors and the teach- rs felt that the institute was htehly successful from every angle. The at tendance wr.s good and the response to the lectures was very pleasing to those delivering them. Mrs. Helen M. Wa'ker, county su perintendent, is to be congratulated on her success in procuring such an ble corps of instructors, and in ar ranging such a successful institute. he session closed Friday after adopt- ng the following resolutions: 1. Be it resolved that we, the teach ers of Morrow County in Institute ssembled, do hereby express our thanks to the citizens and the Board f Education of the City of Heppner for the manifold courtesies shown us while in attendance at this meeting. i. Be it further resolved that we specially express our thanks to our County School Superintendent, Mrs. Helen M. Walker, for arranging this Institute and for her efforts in our behalf: to the various sneakers and nstructors for the messages of in spiration they have brought to us; to the various committees and individ- als who have aided in making this Institute a success. 3. We especially wish to express our appreciation of the splendid en- tertnniment extended the teachers of the Institute by the teachers of Hopp er. 4. Feeling that the concensus of opinion among the teachers of Mor row County is that the health work in the public schools should be stress- be it resolved that we express urselves in favor of greater atten- ion to this important. phase of our life. 5. Knowing the great value of dec- amatoiy work in the schools, it is the opinion of the teachers here as- cmbled that special stress be placed pon it by all the schools of Morrow County. 6. Realizing the great work that the Oregon State Teachers' Associa tion has done for the teachers of the tate, be it also resolved that we go on record as favoring a one hundred per cent support of that organization by the teachers of Morrow County; nu inasmuch as athliation with some professional organisation marks the progressive teacher, bo it further re solved that we announce ourselves in favor of membership on the part of II teachers in the National Educa- ional Association. 7. Believing that the work of the Oregon Educational Test Association ith objective tests is a stcu In the right direction, be it hereby resolved that this body of teachers assembled give its approval of their work. 8. Whereas the welfare of the Sack Sewers to Vie At Rodeo, 23rd, 24th One of the main features of the Morrow County Wool and Grain show to be held in connection with the Rodeo will be the sack sewing contest on Friday and Saturday. The contest will be conducted the same as last year with preliminaries Friday and finals on Saturday. The contest will be held on the platform at the Hepp ner Farmers Elevator company tipper warehouse. Prizes of $30 first, $20 second and $10 third will be offered. The same point system as before will be em ployed in scoring. With the basis 100, time will count 35, workmanship 35, weight of filled sack 20, cleanli ness 10. A minimum of 11 stitches must be taken for a sack to be count ed. Men who contemplate entering this contest are instructed by Chas. W. Smith, county agent, in charge of the how, to get in touch with Chas. Swindig at the elevator. The exhibits for the wool and grain show, now coming in, indicate the finest display of wheat in years, while the wool to be shown is somewhat poorer quality due to the clod spring and consequent lack of grease. The county agent asks that those having wool or wheat to show not already in, to bring same to his office before Tuesday. The premium list will be practically the same as last year. Geo. Mitchell, grain expert from the Moro experiment station, will judge the wheat, and Edward Ludwig, of the Pacific Wool Growers association, will judge the wool. Club Work Progress Shown in County While ever $25 in prizes was cap tured by the youth of Heppner and vicinity in the recent North Morrow County fair held at Boardman, the rhowing made by the clubs through out the entire county was remark able, and goes to show what Morrow county children are capable of doing wnen tney are given a chance and really try. In addition to cash prizes manv ciuo woriters won free trips to the I "ate lalr ttt balem "3 well as scolar- ships to O. A. C. Through the efforts of Helen M. Walker, county school superintend ent, and Chas. W. Smith, agricultur al agent, a great deal of encourage ment haB been given to club work during last spring and summer. Clubs were organized in nearly every community in the county and every possible encouragement was given the workers. Nor does the work stop here for the plans of those who are behind the movement call for a still greater amount of club activity. Ani mal clubs are well as garden, and in dustrial clubs are being organized and next years fair should see a still larger and better exhibit. Mr. Calavan, the state director of club work, acted as judge of the ex hibits at the fair. The bachelor sewing club of Pine City captured nearly all the prizes in that division, while the clubs at Hardman carried home five prizes in bachelor sewing, first year sewing and Handwork. rrora a point of organiza tion the Hardman clubs were proba bly the best in the county, as they completed their work in much better shape than did those clubs working in other parts of the county. The ad vanced sewing club at Irrigen captur ed all prizes in that division, while the first prize in second year sewing went to an Ior.e girl, Helen Smojse. The first prize in home-making went to a girl from Lexington, Doris Wil cox. Doris does not belong to any club but worked alone and entered the fair as-an individual competitor. MARRIED AT PENDLETON.

MEID1NGER, Committee on Resolutions. By Arthur Brisbane The Third Leg. Mistaken Farm Idea. Shorter School Hours. Cleanliness For Health. Senator Walsh, of Massachusetts, when Congess meets will introduce a bill to provide "a West Point of the air," a United States aviation acad emy, to take equal rank with West Point and Annapolis. An excellent suggestion, and "equril rank" 1b none too high, for in case of war the fliers would have to protect the obsolete warships and slow, crawling army. West Point and Annapolis should be changed to flying academies, and the sooner the better. A group of well-meaning, but not too intelligent farmers inform the Government that they don't .want any more reclamation work done, no more irrigation canals, no more land drain ed or deserts irrigated until the price cf farm products increases. Those are the farmers that have voted to keep out the first-class Euro pean immigration that this country needs, the immigration that would provide mouths to eat all tho farm ers can grow and more. They vote to keep out customers for the farms. and would vote to prevent develop ment of the country. But they will not prevent it. No extensive development begun now would have any effect or add one acre to cultivatable land in less than ten to fifteen years. By that time, in the natural course of events, the pop ulation of the country Will increase oy twenty millions. The farmers, more than any other class, are interested in canal devel opment, which would take, as Mr. Hoover has shown, from six to twelve cents a bushel from the freight charge of export wheat, and increase the price of American wheat by that amount per buBhel. Professor Hemps of Budapest is re ported to have perfected a new cure for hydrophobia, better than the Pas teur antitoxin. In one year 3,063 per sons bitten by mad cats and dogs were all cured, and every one of them, except four, within a few days. That's good news, but it would be better to wipe out hydrophobia as the British have done. Every dog is kept in quar antine for a necessary length of time, and no hydrophobia case was known in England until recently,, when a flier brought a dog through the air, escaped the quarantine and started a small epidemic, The secret of health is cleanliness, inside and out. Clean lungs, clean bood, clean thinking prolong life and fight disease. Leprosy, that killed thousands and was looked upon as a necessary visi tation from above, was another word for filth. In Africa a strange, destructive fe ver swept acoss the great dark con tinent. 60,000 were killed by it, quar antine stations were established with out success. Soap, water and disinfectant would have done the work. .Disease is car ried by vermin. Before asking why the natives do not free themselves of the vermin, we must remember that it isn't so long in this country since people looked upon the absence of vermin as a sign of ill health. They thought the tidy children abandoned, unhealthy children. They also thought that the mosquito's bite, ' which actually put malaria in the blood, was a good cure for malaria, Mr. Will C. Wood, California's su perintendent of Public Instruction, says that school' hours should be made longer, and recommends legis lation to the effect. He is mistaken, the hours should be made shorter if there is to be any change. Two hours a day, or three at the most, a child properly taught could learn all that its mind could absorb in one day. No tiours of sunlight should be spent indoors unnecessarily. For centuries men quarreled about the lfliture of the soul. WTas it com posed of solid matter or was it pure ly spiritual? Now science shows that there is no such thing as solid mat ter, every atom being only an aggre gation of elecrtons and nuclei, tiny positive and negative charges of elec trictiy. And we don't know what electricity IS. Parchment manuscripts, written with Latin characters in ncjent Ara maic, spoken by Jews in the time of Christ, found in Pompeii, have been translated.
