G. Whitfield Ray, Noted
Traveler - Lecturer at
Auditorium on 31st.
"Seventeen Tears of Thrills In
South America" indicates the won
derful tale G. Whitfield Ray has
to tell when he appears in Hepp
ner on Tuesday evening, Jan. 31,
at the public school auditorium. Dr.
Ray appears as the fourth number
of the local lyceum course.
Lyceum courses of several years
standing always insist upon an ap
pearance from Dr. Ray. In several
of them throughout the state, he is
the "Headliner" and they refuse to
consider a lyceum course unless Dr.
Ray can be included in the number.
After 16 years spent in the wilds
of South America Dr. Ray returned
to his own country. Immediately
he submitted the data of his trav
els to the Royal Geographical So
ciety of England was made a
member of that noted group of sci
entists and at once delivered a se
ries of lectures before them and
other noted people of England. La
ter he lectured In Scotland, Ireland,
Wales, Honolulu, Australia, New
Zealand, Canada, Alaska, Mexico
and the United States. ,
In his lecture tours he carries
with him Indian curios and relics
that cost a king's ransom to collect
The olllcial club of death, the only
one in civilization, and many other
strange and wierd tokens of sav
agery bedeck the stage from which
he speaks. The largest snake skins
ever brought to America are on ex
hibit along with the rarest feather
costumes. Dr. Ray dons the feath
ers, wields the club of the witch
doctor and in the native tongue
imitates the wierd chants of the
savages of Central South America.
He also speaks of the marriage
customs, domestic life, peculiar
dress and burial rites of these
strange people and many other
strange customs of these savages.
He believes these tribes are the di
rect descendants of ancient Incas,
and supports his theory with excel
lent reasons. He tells of the jungle,
mysterious, unmapped, dark and
gloomy, with secrets and witch
craftry and savage rites unthink
able to modern civilized man, prac
ticed by many tribes of savages.
Mount Ray, one of the peaks in
the mountains in the Republic of
Brazil, was named after him by
that government in recognition of
his valued services for them, and
the Bolivian government gave him
a grant of land and made him a
For a number of years Dr. Ray
was olllcial explorer for the Boliv
ian government On a private ex
pedition of exploration into the in
terior of Paraguay, he discovered
the Caingwa Indians, who never be
fore had been visited by a white
man. He spent some months with
them, living on serpants, parrots,
monkeys and other Indian delica
cies. He was adopted by this strange
tribe of savages and named "Wan
ganpangapthllngithma." By this
method he became thoroughly con
versant with their government, cus
toms, strange religious rites and
ceremonies. He found that the old
men and women of this tribe were
usually buried alive. No family was
permitted more than two children,
the witch doctor killing the others
shortly after birth, the insignia of
his office being the "Club of Death,"

Heppner Loses a Game,
and Wins Another One
Heppner's town boys lost their
first game, played in the school
gym against Lexington Thursday
evening, being edged out in the last
few minutes of play after leading
their opponents throughout the ma
jor portion of the game. This hurt
their 'vanity, and they took their
spite out on the Arlington gang,
when the latter quintet visited here

was 23-19, the second 36-25. Mon

Heppner has a fast bunch. They
were a bit too individualistic in the
Lexington game, and their well or
ganized opponents out-passed them,
feeding Paul Nichols who did the
majority of their scoring. The light
haired youth took the ball on the
first tip-off and converted, and
thereafter was difficult to stop. He
and his team mates have played
together for several seasons, and
their comradeship was made evi
dent by their teamwork. Russell

is composed of Dan Beighle, Paul

shown by both teams in the Arling
