Popular Features.
Nearly 3500 people, the largest
crowd ever in attendance at the Hepp
ner Rodeo, is the estimated number
that viewed the show on Saturday,
the last performance of the 1927
Rodeo. Thursday's attendance was
the lightest first day of record, with
Friday's larger than previous years.
Estimate of receipts, not'yet checked,
is put somewhere between $4500 and
Tim Dery of Eugene is the cham
pion buckaroo, making his final ride
on Colored Boy. Events at the arena
were all run off as per schedule with
but few exceptions, and the bucking
was especially good. The list of
buckaroos was split this year with
half going up Thursday and the re
mainder Friday, those qualifying
these days goiiTg into the semi-finals.
Those making the finals besides Dery
were Emery Moore, Lloyd Matteson,
Kenneth Depew, Dale Case and Du
gun Smith. Moore and Matteson tied
for second and third places. First
prize going to Dery was $125.
Mibs Katherine Bisbee, Rodeo
queen, was especially popular and
attractive in her pleasing white
'ringed cowgril costume, as she led
the parade Friday and Saturday,
through the city's brightly decorated
Main street. More than 100 mounts
were in Saturday's parade. Fletcher's
Round-Up band of fifteen pieces from
Pendleton was unstinting in their
supply of lively music and every-
vhere they pluyed, at the dances,
urena or streets, they were heartily
received. The dance hall was crowd
ed the first two nights and literally
packed the last night, more than
H100 being taken in from this source.
Crowds were well cared for in every
respect, churches as well as restau
rants serving meals. The large crowd
is said to have been tne most orderly
to gather for a Rodeo performance.
Satuiday the arena was banked
with loaded cars, grandstand and
bleachers were packed, besides a large
number seated on fence and adjacent
Gerald Swaggart took the $100 first
j.riie in the Morrow County Derby
Satuday with Barney Ward's pony
coming in second for $50, and A. Cun
ha's taking third ,$25. The derby
was run three-quarter mile, a quarter
farther than previously, and was
closely contested. Bulldogging, a new
feature, proved popular and gave ad
ditional color to the performances
the last two days. A chuck wagon
race was run instead of the pack
horse race as billed. This was an ex
hibition race.
Judges were S. Fryrear, John Ken
ny and Albert Peterson of Ukiah.

Frank Wilkinson this week pur
chased the McCullough ranch on Wil
low creek. This is considered one of
the best stock ranches in the county,
and Mr. Wilkinson can operate it
quite handily from his home place
just a short distance southeast of
town. There is an abundance of good
range lnnd in connection with many
acres of hay land on the creek, an
the place is in a good state of cul
tivation at this time. This is all of
the holdings of the McCullough boy
on the creek, and we understand th
sale involves a large sum of money.
This is the topic of the evenin

Gilliam & Bisbee Victims
of Robbers Who Make
Clean Getaway.
Yeggmen who blew the safe at Gil
liam t Bisbee's store Sunday night
and obtained nearly $150 in cash have
apparently made a clean getaway a
E. H. Anderson, expert from the city
of Portland intelligence department,
who investigated the undisturbed job
Tuesday morning, announced no clew
whatever as to their identity could be
Mr. Anderson was of the opinion
that experienced cracksmen did the
work. He said the safe was blown
with powder, the first powder job he
had seen for many months. That
loves were worn by the thieves was
ertain as no finger prints were in
evidence iiid but one mark thought
tc have been made by a gloved finger
as uncovered.
The blown safe was discovered on
Monday morning when the store was
opened by Frank Gilliam. Papers of
every description were scattered over
the floor, one pane in the glass of the
nside office partition was shattered,
the safe itself stood ajar from the
wall on its foundation with opened
door and upset contents. The wall
lock, Btopped at 2:21, gave evidence
f the time of the explosion. A tran
som over an office window was opened,
thought at first to be the means of
entrance of the cracksmen, but later
Bcovered to have been forced from
the inside to permit the fumes of the
powder to escape. A broken window
the southwest corner upstairs,
approacnaoie irom ine one-story an-
ex, and a ladder, gave evidence to
the entrance and exit of the outlaws.
A .30 calibre rifle taken from the
urdware stock snd found leaning in
the open safe was unloaded. A search
ad apparently been made for ammu-
tion as blood splotches were found
at the ammunition cases, but the
store being out of stock of this size
ammunition due to the hunting sea
son demond, frustrated this search.
A large hammer, chisel and other
tools used in opening the safe were
taken from the store's stock. The
blood splotches indicated that one of
the outlaws had been hurt in some
manner, but were worthless as a clew,
according to Mr. Anderson.
The theory was advanced at once
that the thieves were after the funds
of the Heppner Rodeo association
tnken in at the show ending Satur-
ay. It seemed logical to believe that
the funds were in the Gilliam & Bis
bee safe as Leonard Gilliam, secre
tary of the association, was known
to handle some of the money. The
Rodeo money, however, had been pre
viously placed in the First National
bank, except for a small amount
which had been put in a desk drawer
n the hardware firm s office, a few
feet from the safe. This money was
Two lock boxes containing checks
ond various papers, from the safe
were found early Monday morning
by Allen J. Olson, contractor for the
new school building, at the end of the
walk between the new construction
and the present school building. Pa
pers strewn about indicated that the
thieves had sat down at the end of
the walk to go through their spoils,
as they apparently discarded ail
checks and papers that might serve
as incriminating evidence.
Though several people heard what
they learned next morning to have
been the safe explosion, no one was
aware at the time of what was hap
poning and no immediate investiga
tion was made. As soon as the blown
safe was discovered the office was
locked and an expert sent for from

Large Number View Ex
hibits; Poultry Show
May Be Added.
With more than 400 people going
through on Friday and a much larger
number on Saturday, the Morrow
County Wool and Grain show held
connection with the Rodeo last
week, was pronounced a success. The
wheat exhibits were especially large
and of good quality and drew much
avorable comment. A feature arous-
ng considerable interest and furnish
ng thought for discussion was the
numerous charts giving data on var
ous angles of both wheat and wool
One exceptionally fine fleece of
wool was displayed, which in the
opinion of Edward Ludwig, of the Fa-
ific Wool Growers association who
udged this division, is as good as the
hampionship fleece shown at the Pa-
ific International Livestock exposi
tion at Portland last year. The wool
exhibits on the whole did not make
as good a showing as in previous
ears, however. Geo. Mitchell, of the
Moro experiment station, judged the
wheat and other grains.
At this show interest was aroused
n a poultry show which may be held
n connection with the wool and grain
show next year. Several local poul
try fanciers have announced the,r
intention of importing pure-breu
breeding stock, if such plans are

to the bushel, made the highest glu
ten test and went dark hard winter.
Mr. Balsiger states this is the second
season Mr. McCabe has received such
a compliment.
H. V. Smouse's turkey red was a
close second, with a test of 63.8 lbs.
to the bushel, and had an exceptional
all round test.

Harry Turner Champion
Sack Sewer of County
Harry Turner won the $30 first
prize in the sack sewing contest con
ducted the last two days of the Ro
deo with 89 2-5 points. Jim Furlong
took $20 second money with 88 2-3
points, and Glenn Ball $10 third with
80 5-6. Charlie Ritchie, the only
other sewer to reach the finals, was
disqualified on his second sack by not
taking enough stitches. Prize money
was put up by the rodeo association.
Special rigging for the contest was
erected at the Heppner Farmers' Ele
vator company platform, where pre
liminaries were run off on Friday
with finals on Saturday. Friday each
contestant sewed five sacks and Sat
urday ten. Each sewer started from
his seat, put his sack on the rig, filled
t, jigged and sewed it, and placed it
on the truck, being timed by a stop
watch and judged on the following
points: time 40, workmanship 20,
amount of grain spilled 10, weight of
filled sack 30, making a total possible
score of 100.
Judges were Chas. Jones, Harry
Rood and F. R. Brown.
The contest created much interest
and 150 people attended the second
day. As the contest took place while
the Rodeo parade was in progress,
its attendance was decreased some
what on this account.

The Upper Columbia Athletic lea

schedules and electing officers for the
coming year.
Nearly all the schools of Morrow,
Gilliam and Wheeler counties were
represented at this meeting. Supt.

elected president; Prin. Geo. Winters
of Gilliam County high school, sec
retary; and Prin. H. R. Johnson of
Heppner high school, treasurer.
Schedules in all three major sports
football, baseball and basketball-
were drawn up and approved by the
A good deal of discussion was had
by the representatives of the various
schools as to the advisability of
awarding league championships in
the various sports. This custom has
given rise to so much ill feeling in
the past that for a time the league
seemed in favor of abolishing it al
together. However, it was decided
to attempt it for one more year, giv
ing the executive committee consider
able power in deciding disputed cases.
The feeling displayed at this meet
ing was much bette than in previous
years, and officers and members are
looking forward to a series of suc
cessful seasons in all branches of
sport, is the word brought this paper
by Mr. Burgess.
Former Heppner Girl
Married at Berkeley
From a recent copy of the San"

Heppner young woman, a sister of
Mrs. Spencer Crawford and graduate
of Heppner high ychool, whose mar

ant in the recorder's office at the Uni
versity of California, as he raised a
window behind his desk yesterday
morning was the signal for surprise
and congratulations.
The surprise was all Lovett's. He
thought he had kept his marriage last
week to Miss Bernice Githens, U. C.
graduate, a secret from his office as
sociates. He hadn't. The congratula
tions came from the dozen office
workers who had set the rice trap.
The now Mrs. Lovett is the daugh
ter of Mr. and Mrs. Hugh Githens,
2228 McGee street, Berkeley, a grad
uate of the Berkeley campus with the
class of 1924. She now is a teacher
in the A to Zed school. During her
college career she was active in oam
pus affairs, particularly in inter-class
social affairs.
Lovett graduated in the same clas3
with his bride. He is the son of Mrs.
S. II. Lovett, Oakland. The ceremony
was restricted to members of the im
mediate family and took place Thurs
day afternoon at the home of the
bride's parents. Rev. C. H. Flanders,

Where Real Wealth Is.
President Coolidge wisely decide
to move slowly in forbidding ocean
fights. Army and navy authorities
say to officers: "You shall not fly
across the ocean." '
WHY NOT? Flying machines can
be developed only by USING flying
machines. The deaths of ten or a
thousand brave fliers in experimental
work NOW might mean, because of
quick airplane development, the safe
ty of millions in case of war.
There will be no war but an air
war, this nation should ta ready for
it, and courageous young army and
navy men should be ALLOWED, not
FORCED, to risk their lives, if they
choose, in the good cause.
An autcmobile fight is coming, and
when the dust settles you will find
all those that understand the auto
mobile business celling more cars
than they ever sold.
With big wages and prosperity, the
two car man and the four car family
are increasing. Thirty million new
cars will take the places of twent-two
million old cars now running in the
United States.
Dr. Mees, who directs Mr. East
man's scientific laboratories ' in
Rochester, says science will end war
by making it too deadly and too ex
pensive. Another force greater than science
in our civiliztion is working to end
war, and that force is ORGANIZED
Money has discovered that war kills
more dollars than men, that it creates
heavy income taxes, and other trou
bles. Organized money knows that
future wars would result, at the very
start, in confiscation - of capital to
meet expenses. Organized money,
which usually gets what it wants,
doesn't want war a cheerful fact.
A young man who had been pro
nounced dead was brought to life
fifteen minutes later by an injection
of adrenalin, a life substance secret
ed by one of the mysterious glands.
Doctors hope that many apparently
dead may be saved. They even hint
at artificial creation of life. They may
create that which may be called life,
but how will they create THOUGHT?
The great Darwin, explaining much
by "evolution," was bafflled when it '
came to explaining the development

Japan's Empress has a baby girl,
and the young Japanese Emperor is
doubtless disappointed. Vanity leads
men to value sons, not daughters.
Yet, as Galton shows, Japanese girls
have made the greatness of Japan, as
other girls have made other nations
great. There would have been no
Charlemagne without his greater
mother, "Bertha of the Big Feet," as
Villon calls her in his "Neiges d'an
tan." There would have been no Abraham
Lincoln without six-foot-tall Nancy
Hanks; no Alexander the Great with
out the wild Olympias, dancing with
snakes wrapped around her naked
Mr. John E. Madden, ablest horse
man in America, will tell you "qual

The State of Nevada is progressive.
Night before last, at Reno, the last
remaining street car in the State
rolled ino the barn to be scrapped.
Surface cars vanish from Nevada,
with motor buses taking their place.
Big cities in the East, West and Mid
dle West take notice.
One single American city, New
York, in its public schools last week
received 1,100,000 children. The real
wealth of the United States, its hopes
and future, are stored away in those
eleven hundred thousand young minds
and in the millions of othes in many
thousands of blessed public schools
all over the country.
Wealth is not in mines, factories,
orops, buildings or stocks, but in
thoughts, free and untrammeled.
From that all other wealth springs.
