TEAL ID DANA HEAD
Effective Leaders Retain
ed by Umatilla Rapids
Pendleton East Oregonian.
With Marshall N. Dana as presi
dent and Joseph N. Teal chairman of
the executive committee for another
year the Umatilla rapids association
will conduct its campaign under the
same effective leadership as during
the past few years. i
"Don't change horses while cross
ing the stream" was the idea at the
meeting here yesterday and with that
thought in mind Messrs. Dana and
Teal remain on the job. The stream
crossing just now consists in the ef
fort to secure the approval of the
McNary-Sinnott bill by the senate
and house committees on reclama
tion and' irrigation.
The hearings have been set for the
t-econd week in January and most of
the business yesterday pertained di
rectly or indirectly to getting ready
for the event. The executive com
mittee was given full power to handle
all matters arising and following the
adjournment of the membership meet
ing designated J. N. Teal, Marshall
Dana, George C. Baer and E. B. Al
drich to represent the association in
the hearings at Washington. Mean
while a committee of five has been
placed in charge of the preparation
of a brief to be filed with the com
mittee members. , George C. Baer,
secretary, is a member of this com
mittee and is now at work in the
preparation of the data.
Cheerful news with reference to
the financing of the association was
brought from Portland by Mr. Teal.
He has named A. H. Devers as Port
land chairman of the finance com
mittee and Mr. Devers is securing
funds needed to carry on the work.
Keports are that he is meeting with
success in the metropolis. The Port
land chamber of commerce has given
$1000 to the association and the re
mainder of the Portland money will
be subscribed privately.
G. A. Hartman, R. D. Ritner, C. F.
Stinson, Pasco, and E. B. Aldrich
were named as a special finance com
mittee to cover the interior district.
By resolutions passed unanimously
the association yesterday voted grati
tude for the good work carried on by

JOIN BAB ASSOCIATION".
Attorneys C. L. Sweek, Jos. J. Nys
and S. E. Notson attended a banquet
in Pendleton last evening, honoring
the members of Oregon's supreme
court, which is holding sessions in
that city this week. The object of
this meeting was state wide in its
scope, ard some 200 attorneys from
all over the state had gathered at
Pendleton, the ohject being to in
terest them in the formation of coun
ty or district bar associations. Be
sides this point, a number of mat
ters came up for discussion, and
some remedial legislation was sug
gested. One of these features was
the raising of salaries of the circuit
judges in the state, and very good
reasons were advanced as to why this
should be done. The members of the
local bar have joined with the Uma
tilla county bar in the formation of
the Sixth Judicial District Bar asso
ciation, which includes Morrow and
Umatilla counties. Similar associa
tions will be formed over the state
where counties are not large enough
to maintain an association of their
own. The local attorneys report a
very excellent meeting at Pendleton.

Mrs. C. E. Glasgow
Dies at Yakima, Wn.
Mrs. C. E. Glasgow of Irrigon died
in Yakima on Thursday evening, Oc
tober 27, after about ten days' illness
with what was firBt sunnosed to be
bronchial pneumonia and heart trou
ble, but the immediate cause of death
was cerebral paralysis.
Mrs. Glasgow, who was Agnes N.
Nolan, daughter of Bernard and Idel
la Nolan, was born in Sioux City,
Iowa, July 26, 1883, and at her death
was 44 years, 3 months and 1 day of
age. Her childhood was spent at
Sioux City until she was 11, when,
with her parents, she moved t'i Ga
lena, III., and grew to womanhood.
She was united in marriage to C'.ias.
E. Glasgow, and to this union one
daughter was born. The daughter,
Mrs. Geneva Hayden of Seattle, Wn.,
and the husband are left to mourn her
departure, besides a number of other
relatives and a host of friends in the
Mrs. Glasgow came with her hus
band to Irrigon in 1919 where she has
since resided and been very active
in all work for the good of the com
munity. In the Irrigon community
everyone was her friend. Her home
on the river will be remembered by
many of adjoining counties because
of the hospitality and activities of
Mr. and Mrs. Glasgow.
Burial was in the beautiful new
Masonic cemetery (Acaci) in Seattle
under the auspices of Myrtle Chap
ter, Order of Eastern Star, of Seattle,
assisted by Umatilla Chapter No. 1U7
of Umatilla, of which Mrs. Glasgow
was a past matron. All funeral ar
rangements were under her direction,
as she realized the end was near to
the fight she had made for 11 years
without one word of complaint.
Man Very Seriously
Injured In Runaway
Harold Van Horn of Blackhorse is
confined at the Heppner Surgical hos
pital under the care of Dr. McMurdo
and in a very critical condition as the
result of a runaway accident at the
farm on last Thursday afternoon. He
had just finished hitching the team
to a double disc harrow in the barn
yard, when the team started, catch
ing Mr. Van Horn under the disc and
dragging him for a distance of some
200 yards over the hard ground. His
left leg was almost severed just be
low the hip and his legs and body cut
in many places. The dirt of the
barnyard was ground into the cuts
and made it very difficult to properly
treat the wounds. The young man is
still in a critical condition, not hav
ing recoveied from the shock, and it
is doubtful just now what the result
HEPPNER GETS VITAL BREAK.
Heppner received the major break
and won the football game at Lex
ington lust Sunday afternoon, 6-3,
after being outplayed in all depart
ments. Paul Aiken intercepted a Lex
ijigton pass in the last period and
raced 80 yards to a touchdown. Lex
ington scored in the first quater on a
beautiful drop-kick by Vester Lane,
made from a difficult angle. The
Wheat City boys had a .considerble
edge on yardage gained from scrim
mage as well as return of punts, the
lutter department being handled in
fine style by Glen Sherer. Lex worked
a series of lateral pass and delayed
buck plays that gave the fans a real
thrill, for several first downs. Crock
et Sprouls, Heppner quarterback, was
one of the outstanding players, tak-
ng advantage of openings on several
occasions and squirming his way to

attempted to pass on the wrong

Heppner High Trounces
Arlington High, 37 to 0
Last Saturday the Heppner high
school footbll team added another
league victory to their list when they
defeated the Arlington team 37 to 0.
The game started with Arlington
kicking off and Heppner letuning to
their 40-yard line. Heppner contin
ued making yardage, with a touch
down resulting within the fu:,t five
minutes of play. Duiing most of the
game the ball was in po.sseseion of
the local team, who scored six touch
downs, but made good only one try
Although the game was somewhat
onesided, there was plenty of thrills
during ihe whole sftcrnoun. The Ar
lington team, displaying much tight
ard determination, came near scor
ing when they completed Ivo or three
long passes. On another attempt to
forward pass, the ball was intercept
ed by a Heppner backfield man, thus
preventing a score being tallied
against them. Much could be said
of the good sportsmanship and fight
of the Arlington team. In another
ye(ar, wiith this year's experience,
they will have a much better team.
The race for the championship of
the upper Columbia Athletic league
is proving to be a fiercely contested
one. Thus far Condon and Heppner
each have two league victories and
no defeats; lone has two victories and
one defeat. They lost to Condon by
the close score of 6 to 0. Arlington
and Fossil have both lost all of their
The Heppner student body and
townspeople are sure to see two ex
citing battles when Condon comes
here on Saturday, Nov. 5, and lone
on Friday, Nov. 11. The boys are
looking forward to these two games
with determination to win. Victory
in either case will mean fight to the
finish. If Heppner wins both games
they will be the league champions.
The line-up for the Arlington-Hepp-ner
game was as follows:
, Van Nostern
for F. Fletcher; Heppiti:
for Oviatt; D. Brown for H. Hayes;
Benge for Slocum; Robison for Bra-

Good Ventilation Is
Essential to Health
State Board of Health.
Good ventilation is necessary to in
sure comfort, efficiency and health.
Overheated, poorly ventilated homes,
offices and public buildings are re
sponsible for an enormous percent
age of the sickness that occurs dur
ing the winter months. Most of our
homes are overheated with abnormal
ly dry air in the winter time. When
the air is too warm and too dry the
skin becomes exceedingly sensitive
The essentials of good ventilation
are: An even, moderate temperature,
moisture in the air, and circulation
of air. A temperature of 60 degrees
F to 67 degrees with about 50 per
cent of humidity and without too
much air movement is ideal for school
room and office ventilation. A room
should never be heated above 70 de
grees. The ideal tempeature is 68.
No schoolrotm, office, or factory
workroom should be considered ts
furnished fend fit ior human occupan
cy without a thermometer. Further,
a thermometer is of no value without
someone io read it; it should there
fore be the duty of someone to note
the temperature at definite intervals.
Whenever the temperature exceeds
C8, something should be done to rem
edy that condition.
High humidity with high tempera
ture is detrimental to health. Wheth
er low humidity with temperature but
"0 degrees is objectionable is still a
matter awaiting convincing evidence.
Nine-tenths of the problems of
ventilation can be solved by the ex
ercising of common sense along the
following simple lines: Place a ther
mometer in every living room, school
room, office and workroom and sys
tematically note the temperature re
corded. Control overheating by moderating
artificial heating sources such as ra
diators or registers. If overheating
continues, introduce fresh, cool air
by opening windows. The gravity
window system admits air over de
flecting surfaces such as are provid
ed by slanting window boards. It will
maintain a moderate current of cool
air, far more pleasing and very much
more healthful than the heavy stream
of warmer air prdouced by the fan
system. It is, in general, the ideal
method for the ordinary schoolroom.
In schools so situated that dirt
smells or noise prevent the opening
of windows, gravity ventilation will
not suffice and we must perforce turn
to mechanical ventilation. The most
elaborate of mechanical ventilation
with automatic tempertaure regula
tors, must be watched to see that all
its parts are in working order. Con
stant vigilance is the price of pleas
ant and wholesome air conditions.

At Omaha, Babe Ruth received as
token of his greatness, an egg laid
by Lady Norfolk, champion hen of
It was the 170th egg laid or batted
out by that hen in 170 days. Ruth
remarked: "A hen's egg by the riv
er's brim, a simple hen's egg was to
him, and nothing more," and went on
with his batting. It would surprise
the idol of America to know that such
a hen as Lady Norfolk is more im

Reports from Maine, received out
here on the Mojave Desert, indicate
that voters mean to keep the direct
primary system for awhile, at least.
Professional politicians will not be
able to "deilver" nominations in pre
arranged conventions. And poor mil
lionaires, determined to be somebody,

Hard on politicians, who have less to

The American Public Health Asso-
that today's greatest cause of death
neart disease. And repeated infec
tions, such as "common colds," to
hich so little attention is paid, cause
heart disease. The trouble starts

Toronto University proves that
sunshine will cure rickets, of which
many children die. A German wrote
more than 100 years ago, "God may

He will not forgive you for depriving
them of fresh air and sunlight that
cost nothing." To prove that sun
shine cures rickets does not mean
much when millions of city children
can not have the sunshine.
Power companies worth twenty-
three billion dollars don't' want the
Government to harness the Colorado
River. That might mean competition
in the power business.
Twenty-three billions is less than
$230 per inhabitant of the United
States, less than the price of a small
automobile. "Twenty-three billions"
sounds big, but 115,000,000 human be
ings, all interested in Colorado River
development, possess power also. The
Colorado will be developed and power
gentlemen will be glad when it hap
