Umatilla Permittees and
Forest Officials Come
While accepting the proposals of
the Forest Service as touching graz
ing fees in the Umatilla forest as a
compromise, representatives of the
Umatilla Permittees association and
Oiegon Woolgrowers association who
met with the officials of the govern
ment service at Pendleton on Sunday,
feel they have gained a great deal.
The controversy over grazing fees
and the proposals of the government
to increase their charges has been
on for a period of some five years,
and it seems now that the users 'of
the forest and the forest service bu
reau are getting closer together, af
ter the users finally got the ears of
the interior department at Washing
ton and Secretary Jardine took a
hand in the proceedings.
The meeting at Pendleton on Sun
day was not of a general nature, and
was confined to the executive commit
tee of the woolgrowrs' association
and Messrs. C. E. Ratchford, C. M.
Granger and . N. Kavanaugh of the
U. S. Forest Service. The woolgrow
ers were K. G. Warner, Earnest John
son, W. P. Mahoney, Fred Falconer,
of the executive committee, and Jay
Dobbin, who acted with them.
Much discussion of the entire fee
matter was entered into, and an
agreement was arrived at establishing
the maximum fees on the different
forests as follows:
CASCADE -4c per head per mo.
CRATER 6c per head per mo.
DESCHUTES, 4.75c per head per mo.
FREMONT 4.6c per head per mo.
MALHEUR .. 4.76c per head per mo.
MT. HOOD .... 5.5c per head per mo.
SANTIAM 6.5c per head per mo.
UMATILLA .... 4.76c per head per mo.
WALLOWA .... 4.6c per head per mo.
WHITMAN .... 4.75c per head per mo.
UMl'QUA 4.5c per head per mo.
A further report of the meeting i
given in the suppliment to The Ore-J
gon Woolgrower, published "at Pen
dleton, as follows:
These are the maximum fees, the
local officers on the different forests
having power to scale the charge.,
down where grazing conditions on
certain allotments are not up to the
average of that particular forest
Further, and your committee feel this
to have been an important concession
on the part of the Forest Service,
you, as a permittee, will only pay for
the time your flocks have pasturage
on your allotment.
If, due to climatic conditions,
ranges which should carry your flocks
for three months only provide pas
turage for two and one-half months,
you will only pay for the two and
one-half months. If your allotment
is rough and losses are high, if poor
ly watered, if a long way from ship
ping point and difficult of access, you
may reasonably expect concessions
from the maximum fees.
This brings to an end one of the
longest and, on the part of the Ore
gon woolgrowers, oneof our bitterest
controversies with the Forest Service.
With proposed fees of 12c per head
per month on the original Rachford
commercial value findings, largely
through the efforts of a few men on
the Executive Committee of your as
sociation, the charges have been
scaled down to the fees now given.
Forest users all over the state owe
much to Ernest Johnson and Jay
Dobbin of Wallowa, and FredFalcon
er and K. G. Warner of Pendleton.
These men have, almost entirely at
their own expense, fought for you
in season and out of season. Credit
should also be given to Director Jar
dine and Professor Potter of 0. A. C,
and their assistance has been highly
appreciated. We are lucky in hav
ing such men in positions of respon
sibility; their intimate knowledge of
our business has given them a weigh
ty voice in all deliberations.
We may not have gotten all we
would have liked to get, yet, when
the story is all told, our friends have
not been on one side of this contro
versy. We had good friends in the
Forest Service who realized that com
petitive value was not commercial
value men who appreciated the lim
itations vf cur forest ranges as com
pared to ranges elsewhere.
We will have further dealings with
those men in the minor adjustments
yet to be made, but we may rest as
sured that a spirit of fuirness will
Other wool men from Ileppner at
the Pendleton meeting were Bob
Thompson, John Kilkenny, Frank
Monahan, Bruce Kellcy, Frank Wil
kinson, J. B. Huddlcston, J, W. Bey
mer, and Chas. Smith, county agent.
RETIRE FROM FARMING.'
Mr, and Mrs. Ben Thomas ofEight
Mile, owners of one of the good wheat
farms out that way which they have
been runnlg for the past eight or ten
years, have decided to retire from the
farming game and will leave the end
of this week for Portland to reside.
Mr. and Mrs. Thomas formerly lived
in Portland, and it is somewhat like
just going home again. They have
enjoyed the years of residence in the
Eight Mile section, during which
time many warm friendships were
made, all of which they regret to
leave behind, but as Portland U not
so very far away any more, and they
haven't sold their holdings here, they
will likely make periodical visits and
keep in touch with friends. The
farm has been leased by Homer Green
who takes immediate charge.
Large Number' Attend Program
and Enjoy Banquet; Old
Time Dance Given.
At Lexington on Thursday last
there was a gathering of the 'old
homsteaders" and a large number of
other residents of this county who
had been invited to join in a good
social time prepared for them by the
good people of that little city. While
the invitations had been of rather
short notice the response was gener
ous and many came to enjoy the
abundant hospitality and join in glad
greetings to old friends of the days
when the country was young.
The abundant hospitality of the
Lexington people was manifest in the
splendid banquet prepared and nerved
at the noon hour. Visitors from Hepp
ner state that there seemed to be no
end of the eats that had been pre
pared, and while it waB necessary to
make room and places at the tables
lor a large number in excess of what
was expected the nocn meal did not
exhaust the supply, und the invita
tion was extended to thoio present,
and went out to the highways ar.d by
ways for others to come and help de
vour the surplus at an evening din
ner. Many more came and remained
for an old time dance in the hall dur
ing the evening hours, when old and
young alike enjoyed themselves to
As stated in last issue, this gather
ing was upon the suggestion of Mrs.
Sarah Booher who has long been a
resident of Lexington, and who had
expressed a desire that the old timers
now remaining in reach of that town
be gathered together again before
her time for departure might arrive.
Mrs. Booher had been ill all summer,
and as she had quite fully recovered
she hoped that some such meeting
of old friends might be had. Others
knowing of this proceeded to carry
out this wish, and the gathering on
last Thursday was the result.
An impromptu program, consisting
of community singinlg, recitations,
and other music, with a little old
time violin work at the hands of W.
T. Campbell and Hugh Conner, was
greatly enjoyed during the afternoon
hours, -to which was added a half
hour address by Samuel E. Notson,
much appreciated by all those in at
tendance. Among some of the old timers who
were prsent on this occasion, we men
tion the following: Grandma Thom
son, age 86; Grandma McMillan, age
83; J. W. Waid, age 76; Nels Magnu-
aen, age 80; Mrs. Mary Bartholomew,
age 70; Mrs. O. F. Thomson, age 75;
Mrs. Tillie Parker, age 75; Mrs. Mag
gie Rainey, age 70; Mrs. Sarah Boo
her, age 80; Mrs. Sadie Lewis, age 72;
Mrs. Patterson, age 70; Mrs. Wm.
Booher, age 70; Mrs. W. T. McNubb;
Marion Evans, age 72; Mrs. McKay;
Frank Benefiel; Emanuel Nordykc,
age 77; John Carmichael, age 75;
Riley Munkers, age 70; D. B. Stalter.
Opera Chairs Ordered
At a meeting of the school board on
Friday evening, a deal was completed
for the purchase of 600 opera chairs
to be installed in the new auditorium
gymnasium. The Av H. Andrews com
pany of Portland were the successful
bidders and they agreed to have the
chairs here and installed within SO
days from date of order.
This equipment is plain and sub
stantial, in keeping with the general
finish of the interior of the building
and they are comfortable as well.
Good terms were secured from the
Andrews company as to payment of
purchase price, and altogether, the
school board feels Hhat a very good
deal has been made. Work on the
new structure is moving right up, and
Contractor Olson is sure that noth
ing can now prevent the completion
of the building on schedule time.
INJURED AT WAREHOUSE.
Alex Cornett is limping around and
compelled to use a cane as the result
of an accident he suffered last Satur
day morning at the Brown warehouse.
He was engaged in cleaning up some
spilled wheat in one of the alley ways
between piles of sacked grain, using
for this purpose a scoop shovel with
a broken handle. Without any warn
ing some twelve or fifteen sacks of
wheat took a slide and landed on Mr.
Cornett, and he was caught in such
a manner that the broken handle of
th escoop was forced through the
fleshy part of his left leg at the back
and not far below the hip. His pre
dicament was discovered at once by
Jim Furlong, another employee in the
warehouse, who assisted him in get
ting out from under and pulled the
handle out of his leg. Mr. Cornett
did not realize that he had suffered
so severe Injury, as the hurt was
causing him no puin whatever, but
he was made to know what had hap
pened when the doctor got hold of
1 Im. His injuries were immediately
attended by Dr. McMurdo, and he has
liot been laid up. Just why he was
not crushed by the weight of the
wheat on his body is somewhat of a

First Lyceum Number to
Be Held at Star Thea
ter November 8th.
With the organization of the Ly
ceum course getting well under way,
the members of the Patron-Teacher
association are feeling much encour
aged as to its outcome.
It is the hope of the committee that
the Lyceum can be made more than
a community entertainment, and they
hope to interest all of Morrow coun
ty in it.
The dates of the numbers are es
pecially planned to come at those
times of the year when those people
living in outlying districts will have
more leisure time, and it is hoped
they will be able to take advantage of
the entertainment offered. The cost
of the Lyceum is so nominal that the
committee is quite hopeful of selling
enough season tickets to defray all
expenses. These they are pricing bo
low that it is a distinct money saver
to purchase them. Season tickets for
the entire group are selling for $2.00,
while single admissions will be 60
cents. Thus a saving of one. dollar
is effected by the purchase of a sea
Owing to the fuct that the new au
ditorium will not be ready for occu
pancy by the date of the first per
formance, it will be given in the Star
tfneater which Manager Sigsbet has
been kind enough to turn over to the
P. T. A. for that evening.
The members of the American Glee
Club, which organization is the first
of the course and appears here on
the evening of November 8th, have
the reputation of being exceptionally
versatile artists in many lines of mu
In the first place they boast of an
exceptionally fine singing organiza
tion; all are capable musicians, and
the fart that the members have sung
together for several seasons makes
excellence in ensemble possible. In
the second place, the young men are
accomplished instrumentalists, each
member taking part in the instru
mental part of the program as well as
the vocal side.
The members of the quartet are as
follows: Lancelot Button, second
tenor, piano, saxophone, reader, bells;
Evward Servass, first tenor, banjo,
xylophone, bells; Anthonk Dworak,
basso, saxophone, xylophone, piano,
bells; Ben Myers, baritone, saxo
phone, xylophone, bells, piano.
It can be readily seen that a musi
cal treat is in store for local people
when the American Glee Club ap
pears here. They have been a de
pendable attraction for several sea
sons throughout all parts of the Uni
ted States, and local people are prom
ised a most enjoyable program on the
occasion of their visit here. The rep
ertoire of vocal numbers runs from
the classical to the popular numbers
of the day.
WILL RETURN TO VIRGINIA.
Mr. and Mrs. Elbert Cox have dis
posed of their property in Heppner
and will leave some time the coming
week for the home of Mr. Cox's par
ents at Galax, Virginia, where they
expect to reside in the future, Mr.
Ccx making this move in order to
take care of his parents in their de
clining years. The people of this
community are sorry to have Mr. and
Mrs. Cox leave, and we are quite sure
that if it were not for" the circum
stances calling them back to Virginia
we could expect their return to Ore
gon ere long, for they have become
much attached to the West in the
years they have resided here.
SCALP ALMOST REMOVED.
As a result of an automobile acci
dent that happened near Cecil, when
Pat Keegnn of Condon was on his
way to Heppner and riding in the
car of a Mr. Smith, also of Condon,
the former gentleman came near los
nig his scalp. The car was a Ford
coupe, and it is reported that when
it was found it was standing up on
end. Mr. Keegan's injuries were
caused by broken glass, and on being
brought to the office of Dr. McMurdo
it was found he was quite seriously
hurt. His injuries were dressed, and
it took just 42 stitches to close the

HUNTER ACCIDENTALLY SHOT.
Dr. A. McMurdo and W. W. Smead
returned from their hunt in the
Greenhorn mountains near the Stal
ter mines, the end of the week. They
were not fortunate in getting deer,
but Dr. McMurdo shot a very fine big
bear, whose pelt will make a beauti
ful rug. An incident of the hunt was
the very unfortunate accident to
Scott Van Irons, bookkeeper for the
Union Oil company at Portland, who
with his wife, were on their way to
Idaho for a visit with relatives, and
taking time to hunt while en route.
Mr. and Mrs. Van Irons joined Dr.
McMurdo and Mr. Smead in the hunt
near Austin, after they had met at
Prairie City on Sunday. On Monday
they went out for deer, running out
iirst a doe, and later a buck, which
Dr. McMurdo took a shot at. In the
meantime Mr. and Mrs. Van Irons
had gone on ahead to a point beyond
where the deer appeared, but not in
sight when the doctor fired, and im
mediately after a yell was heard, and
before Dr. McMurdo shot again, he
ard Mr. Smead investigated and
found that the Portland man had
been wounded through the left wrist.
First aid wasimmediately rendered
and Dr. McMurdo put the man in his
car and took him to the hospital at
Baker, some 80 miles distant and op
erated on him, leaving him in the
hospital there until he and Mr. Smead
returned to Heppner by way of Baker
and the injured man was brought
here and placed in the Heppner Sur
gical hospital to be cared for until
he recovers. His case is coming
along all right, and he will soon be
out, though it is feared that the na
ture of the injuries are such that
Mr. Van Irons will hav a stiff wrist.
Dr. McMurdo does not believe the
injured man was in direct line of his
shot, but at any rate the accident
was n very unforunate one, and much
to be regretted.

Armistice Day Program
Will Interest Everyone
The plans for the Armistice Day
celebration, under the auspices of
Heppner Post No. 87. American Le
gion, and Auxiliary, are rapidly be
ing completed, and give promise of
having features which will interest
everyone. In the morning at eleven

priate program, consisting of music
and an address. The place of holding
this meeting has not yet been defii
nitely decided but will be announced
In the afternoon at Gentry Field
lone and Heppner high schools will
play what is expected to be one of
the best football games' of the tnter-
scholastic season. This game is not
under the auspices of the service or
ganizations, however it makes up a
part of the day's activities. In the
evening at Legion headquarters at
6:00 o'clock will be held the Armis
tice Day banquet to which all ex-
service men and women are invited.
Officers of the post wish to make it
plain that all ex-service men are in

expecting to attend notify post offi
cers by the 5th of the month so they
may know how many to prepare for.
This banquet is complimentary and
there will be no charge to those at
tending. Later in the evening will be held
the Armistice Day ball at Elks' tem
ple. The music for this feature dance
will be supplied by Fletcher's Round-
Up orchestra of Pendleton. All who
attended the dances during the Ro
deo know that no better music is ob
tainable anywhere than is furnished
by this popular organization. Spec
ial features are being planned which
will make this one of the most de
lightful social occasions of the sea
son. All in all, the. day's program con
tains features to appeal to any taste,

Prof. H, R. Johnson of Heppner
high school met with an accident on
Thursday last while in chemistry
class and received a badly burned
hand. A bottle of sulphuric acid ex

Professor Voronoff has made old
men seem younger with the help of
monkey glands, has made science
take him seriously.
Now he proposes to create super
men, such as Nietsche dreamed of, by
using animal glands on young chil
dren of exceptional talent. He be
lieves that he will create genius such
as earth never saw, in the children of
children thus treated. The old-fashioned
will believe that if monkeys
could help create finer men. Nature
and wise Providence would have call
ed on the monkeys long ago.
Also a race of supermen is just
what the world does NOT want. Tall
men like short women, thin women

us to march along side by side, about

Near Riverton, Wyoming, Ted Lee
killed 115 rattlesnakes with a shovel.
Rattlesnakes rely entirely on pois

In Los Angeles last week, Max S.
Hayes, farmer-labor candidate for
Vice-Prseidcnt in 1920, told the
American Federation of Labor that it

President Green, of the Federation,
knows that failure is no good adver

that would mean a miserably poor
showing and hurt the prestige of or
