All Citizens of County Re
gardless of Party, Are
Behind Local Man.
Receives Endorsement of Dry
Forces and Has Strong Support
Over Second District
At a meeting of Republicans of
the city held on last Thursday eve
ning In the office of Attorney C. L.
Sweek, a Notson-for-Congress club
was organized, and the campaign to
secure the nomination of S. E. Not
son as representative of the second
congressional district to succeed N.
J. Sinnott, resigned, is now on in
earnest. To make the work of the
club more effective a solicitation of
the city was made on Monday for
funds, and the response was prompt
and generous, many democrats
lending their help in this way, and
to date the reports of Mr. Notson's
campaign are all to the good. Mem
bership In the club is growing over
the county and many names are be
ing added at Lexington and lone.
The vote in the primaries of Mor
row county on the 18th of May
should be practically unanimous
among the Republicans for Notson.
There are now some seven or
eight candidates in the field for
this place, with Notson of Morrow
county, Butler of Wasco and Ritner
of Umatilla standing out most
prominently. In his own district
Mr. Butler will have to divide hon
ors with Mr. Palmitcr, master of
the State Grange, who is a promin
ent citizen of Hood River, while Mr.
Ritner is opposed in Umatilla by
Hawley Bean, a prominent farmer
of Echo. Each candidate Is moving
rapidly and a lively campaign Is
being made to have the names of
the favorites written in on the bal
lot It seems to be the impression
that a vote of around 2000 will land
the nomination, but it may require
more than this.
Mr. Notson has been a prominent
resident of Morrow county for the
past 25 years, and has served his
county well In public office. At pres
ent he is district attorney, having
been elected to this place three suc
cessive terms without opposition.
Previous to that he had served as
county school superintendent for
more than eight years, placing the
schools of the county in a high place
in the educational system of the
state. He has been active in many
ways in community affairs in Hepp
ner, and during the stress of the
war period, served his state and
country in many ways, giving of his
time and strength unstintedly day
and night His work was well rec
ognized along this line. In this re
gard, the last issue of Oregon Voter
"S. E. Notson of Heppner has a
war record and a record in office
and in politics that makes him a
formidable contender. His war rec
ord consists not only In the contri
bution of two patriotic sons, one of
whom enlisted before a state of war
was declared and the other Imme
diately thereafter, but In his capa
ble energy in war work. What Not
son did in wan drives will not be
forgotten by those who were asso
ciated with him. He was on the Job
day and night with industry and
fervor, and showed capacity for
leadership. If elected he would
prove eeffctlve In Congress."
This is the truth as to Mr. Not
son's war record, but he Is not lack
ing in many other respects. Reared
on a farm, nn"d spending many years
in farm work, he is familiar with
the needs of that great basic indus
try; furthermore, ho has had wide
experience along many other lines
that will (It him for the place he
seeks. There is not much this pa
per can say regarding him that is
not well known to every citizen of
the county, and Mr. Notson will
take pains to make himself known
over the district between now and
the date of the primary.
In furtherance of his candidacy
we have no apologies of any sort to
make. His record has been so clean
that there need be no hesitancy on
the part of anyone in giving him a
clean bill of sale along this line, and
we are sure that if the people of
the second congressional district
endorse him at the primary he will
be able to win the fall election
against any man the opposition may
choose, and that man seems to be
Walter M. Pierce, as no other can
didate is apparent in the demo
cratic party.
The Notson-for-Congress club is
sending out the following which in
dicates that the Anti-Saloon League
of Oregon has become a factor In
the congressional race of Eastern
Oregon by swinging its forces be
hind the candidacy of S. E. Notson
for the republican party nomination
at the primary election May 18. An
nouncement that the league had
gone on record in favor of Mr. Not
son was made from the headquar
ters of the league in Portland Tues
day by R. E. Close, state superin

Ranger Clark Reports
Much Snow in Timber
"There has been a heavy snow
fall In the mountain section of Mor
row county during the past two
weeks, and while warmer days
have caused some of it to go out,
the promise Is fine for a good wa
ter supply this summer," is the
statement made to this paper on
Saturday by Ranger Geo. W. Clark.
Mr. Clark has been busy with a
small crew In restoring the tele
phone line In the part of the Uma
tilla forest under his care, and get
ting the trails in shape for the
movement of sheep to the high
mountains. This work is being
pushed as fast as conditions will
permit The work of getting the

opening of the season for the
About the 15th of April Elmer
Hinton attempted to come across
the trail from Uklah to Heppner,
but failed to make It because of
snow. At the Ellis ranger station
he found 36 inches of snow. Snow
starts at Sugarbowl and extends to
Swale creek, but In the west end of
the forest where the timber is more
open, the snow Is gone, and the
men are working now on roads and
telephone lines.
Mr. Hinton left Ukiah again on
the 16th and was able to reach Tup-
per station on the 17th. Near this
station he reports having seen a
band of 14 elk that had evidently
been making that section head
quarters for some time, feeding on
the aspens. Hinton saw the elk
cross the train right at Tupper
station and they were in fine con
dition. Mr. Clark reports having
seen five head of deer near Bull

A very disagreeable and heavy
wind storm struck Morrow county
about noon on Monday, and before
long the air was filled with dust.
No great damage was reported from
over the county, though slight in
Jury occurred here and there to
buildings. At Lexington a portion
of the tin roof on the warehouse of
Farmers Warehouse Co. was blown
off and carried a distance of a city
block, and a small garage at Mr.
Hunt's place was flattened out
Over parts of the county there was
some hall, but no damage reported
to growing crops.

Final Meeting P. T. A.
Next Tuesday Evening
The final meeting of the Patron-
Teacher association will be held at
the Episcopal parish house on next
Tuesday evening, under the aus
pices of the social committee. It
being National Music Week, the
program will be combined with
that of music week observance. The
public Is cordially invited to at
tend and an urgent request Is made
for the fathers to be on hand at
this time, as it should be the one
meeting of the year appealing to
them. The program will be musi
cal and literary, as follows:
Vocal boIo, Harvey Miller; read
ing, Mrs. P. M. Gemmell; violin
solo, Mitchell Thorn; vocal solo,
Miss Frances Ede; reading, Mrs.
T. A. Hughes; music by American
Legion Auxiliary glee club; vocal
solo, Mrs. Mitchell Thorn; address,
Chas. Smith; music, Mlssildlne trio.
Quite a number of citizens and
tax payers of the county held an
interview with the members of the
county court on Wednesday eve
ning, at which time some pertinent
questions were asked and general
information sought The main Is
sue seemed to be in regard to the
policy of the court regarding road
work, that being, of course, one of
the largest items in the budget of
expenditures. The policy of buying
machinery and supplies was gone
into, and the court was finally led
to admit that its manner of con
ducting this part of the business
had been somewhat haphazard and
they finally consented to the plan
of not buying any of this material
and supplies without asking for
competitive bids, and this ' will
doubtless be their plan of procedure
m the future. The session was
quite long drawn out, but the final
understanding reached seemed quite
satisfactory to all persons con
cerned. In the future It might be
a good plan for the taxpayers to
pay a little closer attention to the
business their servants are doing,
thus making a better understand
ing between officials and public.
A violin and piano recital will be
given on Wednesday evening, May
9th, at 8:00 at the Christian church.
Miss Esther Fredreckson of Stan-
field, violinist, and Miss Endlcott of
Pendleton, pianist, will give the en
tire program. These young ladies
are quite Advanced and have had a
good deal of experience playing.
We can look forward to a very en
tertaining evening of music. There
will be no charge and the public
of Heppner is cordially invited to
Saturday, May 12th, Is National
Hospital Day. The Morrow Gener
al hospital of this city will keep
"open house" on that date from
2 to & o'clock p. m. Mothers with
small babies will be especially wel
comed. This will give everyone an
opportunity to go through the hos
pital and Inspect the equipment and
service offered. The public In gen
eral Is invited to visit the hospital
on this date.

part of the program, though many

work with the section crew on the
railroad and was not in position to
give the children proper care, and

Heppner High Wins
All Scheduled Games
The Heppner high school baseball
team defeated the Condon baseball
team 16-5, Friday, April 28. ' .
The game was played at Condon
and marked the finish of the sched
uled games for the local team In
the Upper Columbia league, with a
clean slate of wins.
The Condon boys put up a pretty
hard fight and managed to hold
the local team down until the sev
enth inning when fate landed into
the locals' hands and they succeed
ed in getting ten scores.
Due to the severe wind the pitch
ers were unable to control the ball
and several bases were got on balls.
The high school team has won all
of their scheduled games and will
automatically become champions of
the league if Boardman loses to
lone Saturday. If Boardman wins
Heppner will play Boardman for
the championship.
The baseball team has been very
successful this year and credit
should be given them for their ex
cellent playing and sportsmanship.
The nine did not consist of only
two or three good players but the
team was good as a whole. Every
player was depended upon just as
much as any other regardless of
the position on the team.
Following is the line-up for the
Condon game:
Heppner Slocum 1, R. Turner 2,
Thompson mr Gentry ss, Evans c,
N .Turner 3, Robertson p, Hake r,

and that is the story of their de
feat at Umatilla Sunday. That to

the league leaders. Umatilla is now
the only undefeated team In the
Wheatland league.
Heppner's bad inning, or Uma
tilla's good one, either way you care
to put it was the third. Pitcher
Berry led off with a hit was ad
vanced by Woodwrad's single, and
the two of them scored on Mittles-
dorf's double-sacker. Mittlesdorf
himself scored on centerfielder
Schroeder's error. That was all the
scoring for the whole game.
Pitcher Drake was working to ad
vantage and it was a tough game
for him to lose. He is credited with
eight strike-outs to Berry's five,
while he allowed but five hits.
Though there were several errors,
Schroeder's was the only one to
come at a critical point
Schroeder is a new arrival to ap

the largest contest ever staged in

An apology is due the community
for the long wait preceding the

caused by the organization being
changed at the last minute by the
executive committee of the Morrow

becoming so cumbersome that it
