High School Operetta Is
Beautiful, Colorful In
Dutch Setting.
As bright and pretty an operetta
as probably hag ever been present
ed before a Heppner audience was
the annual presentation given be
fore a large and appreciative audi
ence In the school auditorium-gymnasium
last evening. "Tulip Time"
was the offering, its beautiful Dutch
plcturizatinn being truly set out in
the colorful costuming and abund
ance of tulips on every hand. The
Dutch lads and lassies who com
posed the chorus, wore the typical
loose and flowing garments of Hol
land, all uniformly blue and white,
that lent the basic motif of decora
tion, which in contrast with the
more brightly colored dresses of
the American tourist girls, made
in itself a beautiful picture. A row
of varicolored tulips across the
front and a flower booth on either
side, with a big greenwlndmill in
the background, gave all the need
ed atmosphere to make -the setting
The village of. Osendorf was en
Joying a holiday, the opening scene
presenting the chorus of Dutch lads
and lassies gaily announcing it in
song. Hans, a young Dutch ap
prentice, in the person of Ellis
Thomson who carries the weight of
the humorous theme throughout,
appears and announces the coming
of a band of American tourists.
Next to appear in the order of their
appearance are Aunt Anna, Chris
tina's guardian, Margaret Notson;
Katlnka, a village maiden, Anna
McDald; Hendrick van Ooster, bur
gomaster of Osendorf, it's chief of
police, fire department, traffic cop,
and in fact ruler of the town, Clair
Cox; Christina, a charming Dutch
girl, Patricia Monahan; Theophilus
McSplndle, an authority on botany,
John Conder; Nod Baxter, an Amer
ican college student, Gerald Slo
cum; Dick Warren, a fellow stu
dent of Ned, Robert Turner. . Com
posing the choruses were Dutch:
Hazel McDald, Edna Vaughn, Dor
othy Herren, Louise Langdon, Ella
Fell, Virginia Dix, Virginia Cleve
land, Mary Beamer, Kenneth Ov
latt, Louis LcTrace, Duane Brown,
Fletcher Walker, Gay Anderson,
" Earl Thomson, Homer Hayes and
Homer Hager; American: Velton
Owen, Alva McDuffee, Mary Thom
son, Florence French, Ruth Tur
ner, LucHle Beymer, Earle Bryant
and Claud Conder; Sailors, Duane
Brown, Louis LeTrace, Claud Con
der, Kenneth Ovlatt and Earle Bry
ant The story, pictured In song and
dialogue, brings out the following:
The village, enjoying a holiday, is
startled by the arival of a party of
American tourists, college students
under the leadership of Professor
McSpindle, a tutor in botany, to
study tulip culture. Two of the
party, Ned and Dick, are much more
interested in Christina and her
friend Katlnka. News reaches the
village that a thief has been steal
ing choice bulbs of prlzo tulips, and
a handbill describes the thief and
offers a reward for his capture. Ned
and Dick Induce McSplndle to wear
certain clothing, answering the de
scription of the tulip thief. When
the Burgomaster beholds McSpin
dle so attired he causes his arrest.
With McSplndle out of the way, Ned
and Dick promote their friendship
with the girls, and learn that Chris
tina's stock is, unknown to her, fo
Immense value. They reveal the
truth to her and thwart the Burgo
master's attempt to grow rich at her
expense. With the assitance of
Christina's Aunt Anna, the inno
cence of McSpindle is established,
and the latter declares his affection
for her; and with the prospect of
a triple wedding the final curtain
All parts were very well taken
with special mention deserved by
all those who took leading roles,
their solo, duet and quartet work
being well executed, showing their
training to have been well tended
to by Miss Kate Francis Ede who
had supervision of the production
In charge. Though the voices were
not so strong as would be expected
of professional entertainers, the
harmony was excellent throughout.
The chorus ensembles we're espec
ially well executed and lended the
valuable Introductory and final
grandocio necessary to a complete
rendition of such an operetta. Miss
Ede Is especially to be congratulat
ed upon the success of the enter
Mrs. Walter Moore efficiently ac-
" companled at the piano, working
tirelessly from the beginning of re
hearsals till the final curtain, as
did also Mrs. Harold Cohn who
coached the many dancing steps
UBed throughout, and which made
a largo hit with those who witness
ed the presentation.: in apprecta-
tion of the work done by Miss Ede,
Mrs. Cohn and Mrs. Moore, Jas. M.
Burgess, superintendent, presented
each with a beautiful boquet of
flowers, paying them a fine tribute
In his few remarks.
Miss Mae Murray, domestic sci-
ence and art Instructor, did the de
signing and superintended the mak
ing of the costumes, and is to be
congratulated highly on her work.
As an Interlude, Mitchell Thorn,

ants will be quite large," says Mr.
Burgess, "little time will be con
sumed by each, and by having ev
erything well organized we are sure
it will not prove unduly lengthy.
In former years these contests have
proved very interesting and enter
taining, and competition this year
is expected to be keener than ever
before. I am sure it will be well
worth everyone's time and money to
An added incentive to good work

ment of an inter-county declama

Heppner To Observe
National Music Week
National Music Week is not a
campaign for something to be su
perimposed on tne people. It is a
suggestion. It asks for no support
except from those who desire to
give It Music rendered a great
service during the war and is need
ed to an even greater extent in these
days of readjustment
National Music Week is a radio
in which everyone becomes either
a sending or receiving station or
both. Music will bo in the air bring
ing pleasure, refreshing relaxation
and melody to the public as a whole.
The national observance is the
culmination of the many city-wide
music weeks which have been held
In all parts of the counti-y. The
week beginning with the first Sun
day In May is nationally known as
music week. As far as we know
Portland and Salem are the only
towns in Oregon that have ob
served this special week in the past
The concentration of several mu
sical events into a single week has
for its purpose the awakening of
the whole community to the import
ance of music as a factor in one's
life. The variety of the programs
makes it possible to reach all the
people with the message of music
in some form and to demonstrate to
every individual that at least some
type of music appeals to and helps
The .town which through local
observance "gives more thought to
music," has not only the immediate
benefit of a succession of carefully
planned entertainments, but has the
prospect of continued development
in its musical life and therefore in
Its civic and social life as well.
The local music club has taken
the initiative and planned several
musical events, and it is hoped that
a large number of individuals and
organizations will give their hearty
The churches are asked to give
special attention to music on the
opening Sunday. There will be a
community sing of religious and
patriotic songs on Sunday after
noon, the place to be announced
later. On Monday evening at the
Church of Christ there will be a
piano recital of the pupils of Mrs.
Roy Missildine and Mrs. Milton
Bower. This will consist of piano
solos and ensemble numbers with
two pianos.
On another evening Miss Esther
Fredreckson of Stanftoid and Miss
Endicott of Pendleton will give a
violin and piano recital.
Plans are under way for a home
talent concert more details later.
The crowning event of the week
will be the "May Festival" given by
the children of the grades.
S. E. Notson Expected to
Declare for Congress
S. E. Notson returned Wednesday
evening from Portland. He had
spent a day or two in the city In
conference with other men of the
second Oregon congressional dis
trict who, like himself, are inter
ested in becoming candidates to
succeed Representative Sinnott,
withdrawn from the race because
of his appointment to a federal po
sition. While Mr. Notson has not yet
fully decided to declare himself a
candidate, he is being urged to do
so by his many friends in this
county, as well as elsewhere, and
there will be a strong move made
at Heppner, we are sure, to get him
to enter the race. ,
The time is short for canvassing
the district and a strenuous cam
paign would haveUo be made, but
we feel Bure that Mr. Notson will
be in position to make such a cam
paign should he decide to throw his
hat in the ring. Being urged as he
is by friends here to declare him
self, and should this decision be
that he will enter the race, we shall
expect that republicans of Morrow
county will get behind him to a man
and help him win the nomination.
He will have oposing him such
men as Roy W. Ritner of Pendle
ton, R. R. Butler of The Dalles.
Hawley J. Bean of Echo, who have
already declared themselves in,
while there is prospect that Dan
Boyd of Wallowa county and Den
ton Burdlck of Jefferson county
will also be candidates, and maybe
Bruce Dennis of Klamath Falls.
Ritner, who had filed for joint rep
resentative of Umatilla and Mor
row counties, announces his with
drawal from this race, and this will
leave only the name of J. P. Con
der of Heppner on the ticket. It Is
stated, however, that republicans
of Umatilla county will come to
gether and endorse another man,
whose name will have to be written
In. In the case of those men who
enter the race tor representative in
congress, their names will have to
be written in on the primary nom
inating bullot i
We desire to thank the neighbors
and friends who so kindly assisted
us in every way during the Illness
and death of our little boy, Arthur
Don; also for the many beautiful
Mr. and Mrs. A. W. Gammell
and Family.
An important meeting of the Or
der of Eastern Star is announced
for tomorrow evening by Mrs. A. H.
Johnston, Worthy Matron. There
will be initiatory work and a spec
ial musical program, and all mem
bers are urged to attend.
Filing, Registration Time
Past; List Candidates
and Offices Sought.
April 18 ended the time for filing
of candidates for nomination to the
various offices May 18, as well as
closing the registration books till
after the primary election. There
Is now no chance for new candi
dates to have their names appear
on the ballot, nor is there any
chance for any voter not already
qualified to cast his ballot Every
qualified voter should by this time
have received his certificate of reg
istration from the county clerk's of
fice as these were mailed out two
weeks ago. No swearing in of vot
ers on election day will be permit
ted. A list of names to appear on the
ballot for national, district and state
offices was received this week from
the state secretary's office, and the
list of names for the county offices
obtained from the county clerk.
With but one exception, all candi
dates who have announced them
selves In the county field have qual
ified. The exception is Creed Owen,
who failed to file with the county
clerk. We have not heard of Mr.
Owen's withdrawal from the race
for county commissioner, but it will
be necessray for those who desire
to cast their ballot for him to write
in his name. In writing in names
care should be taken to place an
"x" before it as it might not other
wise be counted.
The sheriff's office seems to be
the most desired among county
office seekers, there being three
republicans and one democrat after
the nomination. Geo. Bleakman,
C. J. D. Bauman and E. Albee are
the republican candidates, while
Walter Matteson seeks approval at
the hands of the democratic constit
uency. Another contest appears for
the office of caunty clerk on the
republican ballot with Gay M. An
derson and W. O. Hill, the only
candidates, asking for the nomin
ation. Besides Creed Owen, who
declared himself a candidate but
failed to file, there are three other
republicans who desire the nomina
tion for this office, namely L. P.
Davidson, E. S. Duran and Chas.
Wicklander. There- are no demo
cratic aspirants. Helen M. Walker
and Lucy E. Rodgers, the only can
didates for county school superin
tendent are both republicans. The
democrats have but one contest to
decide in the county election. E. R.
Huston and Joe Lieuallen seek en
dorsement for the office of justice
of the peace, sixth district T. A.
Hughes is the republican candidate
for this office.
- The withdrawal of N. J. Sinnott
republican, from the race for rep
resentative in congress, 22nd repre
sentative disrtict, has coused some
what of a free-for-all for this job.
Mr. Sinnott was appointed a mem
ber of the U. S. court of appeals in
New York by President Coolidge
and withdrew from the race. He
was the same as conceded the nom
ination, being the only republican
candidate when he withdrew. Since
his resignation from the race, how
ever, candidates have been coming
out right lively. S. E. Notson, of
this city, on the urgent request of
friends, is contemplating running
and will make decision today. Other
republican possibilities mentioned:
Roy Ritner, Pendleton; Dan Boyd,
Enterprise; R. R. Butler, The Dall
es; D. E. Burdick, Madras; Bruce
Dennis, Klamath Falls, and A. R.
Shumway, Milton, Whether or not
all of these will be candidates is not
yet definitely known. For the job
in Undemocratic camp, who before
had no candiate announced, two
leading figures appear, Walter M.
Pierce of La Grande and W. B.
Strayer of Baker. As. Mr. Sinnott's
withdrawal came too late for other
candidates to file it will be neces
sary for the voter to write in the
name of his choice for this office.
Following is the list of district,
state and national offices and the
candidates for each to appear on
(Continued on Page Eight.)
The sounding of the fire alarm at
about 7:20 o clock Tuesday morn
ing called the citizens of the com
munity to the residence of C. L.
Sweek on Court street and it was
found that fire was burning in one
of the inside rooms, starting, evi
dently from spontaneous combus
tion, as paint and paint rags had
been left there by workmen in
charge of painting and decorating.
The fire had eaten through the
floor in this room and was beginning
to show on the outside when the
alarm was given. The Sweek fam
ily was absent, and there was no
one in the house at the time, but
it was not long until water applied
by a garden hose had extinguished
the flames. Freshly painted rooms
upstairs were badly smoked, and the
floor In the room where the Are
started was damaged some. Mr.
Sweek and family motored to Port
land on Sunday and the house was
left In charge of carpenters and
painters. There had been no fire In
the house, so there seems to be no
other theory of the fire than that
mentioned above.

ated on 10 days ago at Morrow

Heppner's ball tossers pulled
themselves out of several bad holes
Sunday and drubbed their Arling
ton opponents 3-1 on Rodeo field.
It was anybody's game until the
last ball was tossed, and the locals
are congratulating themselves on
their close win.
Gay Ander3on, stellar center field
er, could easily be voted the most
valuable player In this contest as
he has been in many others. Twice
he proved a thorn in Arlington's
side. Once with two men on bases
and one racing toward the home
plate, he picked up a hot grounder
that had passed the infield for a
base hit, threw it in home perfect
ly, allowing Catcher LaMear to tag
out the scoring runner. This pre
vented one Arlington score. Then
again he pulled down a long fly that
would have beera good for at least
two bases If he hadn't caught it On
this occasion he was forced to run
way back and at the end of the run
jump as high as he could In the air
to grab it Such was his momentum
that after making the jump he could
not regain control of himself and
turned a complete somersault frac
turing a rib in the fall that caused
time to be taken out for several
minutes and the spectators to hold
their breath until it was announced
he was not seriously hurt In spite
of this he held the ball and con
tinued in the game. ' S
Arlington 8 lone score came In the
second inning, just after the first
named play by Mr. Anderson. Fisk
it was, the first batter up, who was
thrown out at home. Sailing, who
knocked the hot grounder, gained
second on the play and scored on
an error by Matthews at short The
rally was ended when Weatherell
and Montague both went the route
of Van Marter to Erwin on two In
field grounders.
Heppner tied the score in the sec
ond inning after there were two
outs, when hits by Aiken and Mat
thews successively combined with
an overthrow at third allowed Aiken
to come in. Aiken's big stick was
twice responsible for scores. Again
in the seventh he led off with a two-
bagger, the longest hit of the day.

ner s other run came in the eighth
when LaMear clouted a base hit
stole second and scored on Drake's
Montague for Arlington and
Drake for Heppner both pitched
nice ball. While Montague took
the edge on strikeouts, getting eight
to Drake's three, Drake showed he
could pitch ball in pinches. In the
eighth with a man on second and
third and two down, he whiffed Ed
die Ashenfelter, one of the visitors'
most dangerous hitters.

er and circled the diamond for
three runs. A two-bagger by Blake

two earned runs made. Umatilla's
short stop was responsible for Con
don's two scores.
