Health Work in Schools
Vital to Fighting T. B.
More than 12,200 people have been
killed in Oregon by tuberculosis dur
ing the past twenty years, according
to a compilation made by the Ore
gon Tuberculosis association and re
leased today. This total has been
rolled up in spite of the downward
trend of the tuberculosis death rate.
If the 1907 death rate had con
tinued down to the present time," the
article continues, "we would have
lost more than 820 Oregon people
with this disease in 1926. But the
rate has fallen from 89 deaths per
100,000 people in 1900 to 61 per 100,-
000 in 1926. Even with our large in
crease in population, the number of
tuberculsois deaths was down to 628
n 1926, or nearly 300 less than would
have been lost if the old rate had not
been cut down."
The Oregon Tuberculosis associa
tion heartily endorses a statement
in the editorial columns of the Med
ford Mail-Tribune, October 30th, ac
cording to Lloyd Wilcox, publicity
director of the association. the
Education is of value only as it
contributes to the individual's ca
pacity to meet the problem of life
successfully. One of the greatest
problems is the maintenance of
health. An educational system tnat
does everything for the mind and
nothing fo- the body, fails before it
"Following out its belief in this
principle," said Mr. Wilcox in com
menting upon the editorial, "the Ore
gon Tuberculosis association and its
19 affiliated county public nealth as
sociations have continually worked
to stimulate health teaching through
the public schools and to promote
public health' nursing by supplying
demonstration nursing service.
"This work is paid for by the an
nual sale of Christmas Seals in all
parts of Oregon. The Christmas Seal
sale opens this year on November 25."
FOOTBALL TEAM BANQUETS.

WITH ONE DAY DRIVE
For a most worthy cause get

Tomorrow you will be solicited
for membership in the American
National Red Cross, the annual roll
call starting on Armistice Day and
carrying through to the 24th of
this month. But locally only one

During the war Mosxow county

work of the Red Cross is proved.
E very oo i should belong.
In th ; last two years more than
$500 has been expended by the lo
cal chapter in relief work. A good
portion of this went to the Miss
issippi flood relief, but the rest
was expended locally in helping
destitute families and other deserv

quietly and effectively little noise

and many people have known noth

Of every membership taken lo
cally, 50c is sent to the national or
ganization and the remainder is
kept in the local chapter fund. For
this reason local officers urge club
subscriptions, in which families or
other groups pool their dollars and
take out one membership. Those
who can afford to do so are also
urged to take longer memberships.
Mrs. W. P. Mahoney, chairman
of the local chapter, is in charge of
the drive tomorrow. Paul M. Gem

BUYS BUTLER STOCK.
G. W. Moore of Kimberley bought
19 head of Jersey cows, purebred
stock, and a registered bull from
Ralph Butler of this city who farms
on lower Willow creek, the last of the
week. Mr. Moore is taking the stock
to Grant county to put out among
farmers there. Farmers of that vicin

WRIGHT BOY STRICKEN.
Orrain Wright, young son of Mr,

FRANCHISE IS ASKED
Telephone Company Finishes 30-Year
Operation; Street and Water
Main Work Progressing.
In line with the city of Heppner's
improvement policy which has in
cluded in the past month much street
improvement and relaying of larger
water mains, comes action at the
council meeting Monday night call
ing for the rebuilding of an iron
fence on Baltimore street and the
elimination of the mudhole on Willow
street adjacent to Hotel Heppner.
The matter of a new franchise for
the Pacific Telephone, and Telegraph
company was also presented in the
form of an ordinance.
The iron fence will be rebuilt on
the concrete retaining wall by the
Magnusen property on Baltimore,
being one of the main avenues of
approach to the school. The fence
that once, was placed there was de
stroyed by some delinquent juveniles
a few years ago. The absence consti
tutes a menace to scholo children, in
the opinion of the council, and it was
consequently ordered to be replaced.
To do away with an unsightly in
convenience to visitors who park at
the hotel lobby entrance, the city
authorized the grading up of Willow
street by the hotel and graveling to
the curb, with proper drainage facil
ities to care for the waste water
from Main street that in the past has
run into the street at this point,
forming a bad mud hole.
First and second reading was made
of a proposed ordinance to grant the
Pacific Telephone and Telegraph com
pany a new 30-year franchise, the
company's present franchise expiring
next month. The first franchise was
granted thirty years ago to the old
Home Telephone company. The or
dinance does not ask for an exclu
sive franchise and waa looked upon
favorably with the exception- of one
clause relating to the - construction
of poles, which in the opinion of
Councilman Sweek, does not give the
city sufficient protection. This mat
ter will be taken up with W. D. De
Varney, the company's franchise man,
and the third reading will be made at
the December meeting if a special
meeting is not called before that
Mr. DeVarney who was in Heppner
Monday but unable to stay for the
council meeting because of a press
ing engagement elsewhere, declares
that the company has been going be
hind on their operations in this city
largely due to the extensive improve
ments in their service here".
The matter of fencing the highway
near the corner of the school build
ing at the junction of the city street
with the Oregon-Washington highway
was also discussed by the city fath
ers. A real menace to motorists ex
ists the way the road at this point
now stands, they believe, and steps
may soon be taken to remedy this
in the way mentioned.
Work of relaying the water mains
on Gale street is progressing rap
idly, three blocks having been com
pleted. The pipe being put in is
three inches in diameter to replace
the former two-inch pipe, which was
not large enough to supply the dis
trict adequately. Preparations are
also being made for relaying the
mains on May street in larger pipe.
The city is putting in shape nearly
all of the principal streets of the
city this fall, and more rock is being
blasted out at the city crusher for
graveling. While the council is as
sured that the permanent street im
provement of the kind they are now
doing is the best way to do it, it is
believed a little more money will need
to be appropriated to care for the
maintenance next year.
The budget committee was appoint
ed at this meeting to meet some time
this week, the day not being yet an
nounced. Frank Gilliam, Jas. Thorn
son and Gay M. Anderson were ap
pointed the three freeholders to act
with the city finance committee made
up of C. L. Sweek, M. t. Clark and
L. E. Bisbee, to draw up next year's

Go to Swift .and Co
Pilot Rock turkey growers who

only bidder, and a fixed offer was not
made. Two .carloads from the Rock
will be ready for the Thanksgiving
market, according to report. The
birds will be killed Monday and ship
ped Friday for the Portland market.
It was believed it might be necessary
to get "roughers" out of Portland to
assist in the dressing.
Dan Boyd, representative of Swift
& Co. at Pilot Rock, expressed the
belief that the average price paid
would be higher than that for which
the output of the Iduho Turkey Grow
ers association was awarded recently.

Heppner and Condon
Tie For Championship
Last Saturday, November 5, the
Heppner and Condon high school foot
ball teams met on the local field and
battled to a sensational 6 to 6 tie.
Both teams made a desperate fight
to put over the winning points but
they were so evenly matched that
scoring was not an easy matter.
Condon won the toss and chose to
kick. Heppner received and returned
to the 40-yard line. They started a
grand march toward the goal only to
lose the ball on a fumble which was
recovered by a sharp-eyed Condon
man. The possession of the ball
passed from one team to another all
during the first quarter . Neither
team was able to- score during that
period, although Heppner had two
fine chances but failed to penetrate
the strong Condon line for needed
yardage, which added to costly fum
bles, resulted in no scoring.
Shortly after the beginning of the
second quarter Condon, failing to
moke yaidage, punted to Heppner.
Gentry, Heppner quarteback and cap
tain, receive dthe ball and carried
it, with the aid of splendid inter
ference, through the entire Cordon
team on a pretty 65-yard run for the
only Heppner score of the game.
They failed to complete a pass for
their extra point, thus making the
score 6 to 0 in favor of Heppner.
The second half started with each
team still determined to fight to the
finish ard win the game. Neither
team threatened seriously in the third
quarter, bsth teams lesort'.ng to
passing and punting.
In the fourth quarter Condon open
ed up with a passing attack which
netted them a touchdown. They
failed to convert the try for point,
making the score tied at 6-6. Hepp
ner then came back desperately try
ing to break the tie. The game end
ed with the ball in Heppner's posses
sion on the Condon 18-yard line.
Those who witnessed the game en
joyed a well played battle for grid
iron honors. Neither team had a de
cided edge on the other. Condon ex
celled in punting, although the Hepp
nerites had the ball in the Condon
territory a greater portion of the
game. Heppner and Condon are still
tied for the league championship.
Each team has two victories and one
tie game. On Armistice Day, Friday,
lone plays Heppner at Heppner in
what promises to be a very interest
ing encounter. On that same day
Condon meets Fossil. If Condon and
Heppner both win these contests they
will still be tied for championship
The game tomorrow starts prompt
ly at 2:00 o'clock.

Another step in travel by air.
German and British dirigibles, each
of 6,000,000 cubic feet capcity, will
race around the world next year.
They expect to make the trip in
