All Wool at Heppner
Practically Disposed of
For the season of 1928 the Hepp
ner wool market has been practic
ally closed. We are Informed that
there remains in the warehouses
here, unsold, only about 40,000
pounds of the present season's clip,
and this will likely be taken over
by the buyers soon. The market has
been very good here this season,
the average price ranging around
35 cents, with the fleeces cleaner
than In other years.
Henry Cohn of this city, and Max
Gorfkle of Pendleton were among
the heaviest buyers, these gentle
men taking over the greater por
tion of the Morrow county clip.
Shearing of sheep In the Hepp
ner vicinity is going along rapidly
and the season will soon close.
Shearers are at the D. O. Justus
and John Kilkenny ranches this
week and these clips are moving
to the warehouse at a rapid rate.
Some few bands remain to be
sheared in the Butter creek country
but these do not aggregate a very
large number of sheep. The season
has been fine, especially during the
past several weeks.
Registration books are now
open at Gordon's confectionery

committee wishes to apologize for
any inconvenience that anyone
has been put to In this matter.

LOSES FINGERS BV SAW.
Harry Hayes suffered the loss of
three fingers of the left hand while
at woik with a circular saw at the
ranch of D. O. Justus on Saturday
afternoon. He was using the saw
in sharpening fence posts, and in
moving some of the sawdust and
chips away from the saw and using
a piece of bark for that purpose,

saw, and Harry has nothing but
stumps of these digits left He was

Arlington at Condon.
With four games to play, the
Wheatland league standings, remain
unchanged by action of directors
at Arlington Tuesday night, when
they voted to let the games pro
tested by Heppner and Umatilla
stand as reported. After voting to
allow both protests and count the
games as "no games," to be played
over, the directors rescinded their
action to promote harmony In the
league, which it is felt has been
the most successful of any ever
formed in this section.
As the result of this action Con
don and Wasco are tied at the head
of the percentage column with .666
each. Arlington and Umatilla are
each a game behind with .500 and
Heppner and lone, keeping com
pany in the cellar, still have a
chance for the pennant with .333.
Sunday's game at Heppner holds
especial interest as the locals again
meet Wasco, the opponents in their
contested game. Heppner undoubt
edly will make a supreme effort to
dislodge Wasco from their top perch
with Wasco just as determined to
make the locals sorry that they
ever instigated a protest Then
Heppner fans will have an addi
tional treat the following week on
June 2 and 3 when Arlington comes
for"a two-day series. This arrange
ment was made to give the Chautau
qua crowds a chance to see some
good ball games, though the Sun
day game only will count in the
league standings. '
The local club is offering no alibis

Condon Sunday. They just natur

return game here in three weeks,
and lone comes here to close the
league season the week following,
giving Heppner aH- the remaining
games of the schedule at home.
All the directors were present at
the Arlington meeting Tuesday. In
addition to their action on the pro
tested games they voted that all fu
ture protests must be made to the
umpine-in-chief at the time a dis
puted play is made and the game
finished under protest, the umpire-
inchief to announce this is the
case. They also voted that the pres
ent officers woujd hold over till the
beginning of the season next year
to call the' organization meeting.
The officers are Dean T. Goodman,
Heppner, president; Earl W. Snell,
Arlington, vice-president; Jasper V.

heppner Places Second
n Tourney Shoot -Off
Heppner Rod and Gun club tied
with the Lane County Sportsmen's
association of Eugene for second
place in the shootoff match of the
third annual Oregonian state tele
graphic trapshooting tournament
at Portland Saturday. These two
clubs with 478 each were nosed out
by just three birds by the Klamath
Gun club, winners of the cup.
Heppner placed the same team in
the match that won the first shoot
off two years ago, with the excep
tion of Chas. Vaughn, replaced by
Earl Warner. Vaughn broke his
gun the day before while partici
pating In the third annual Pacific
coast zone divisional handicap
shoot Coquille, last year's cham
pions, placed sixth among the nine
competing teams. Scores of the lo
cal team, 100 birds each, follow:
Chas. Latourell 98, L. Van Marter
95, A. D. McMurdo 96, Albert Bow
ker 97, Earl Warner 92.
In its write-up of the shoot the
Oregonian says: "The outcome of
the team race was in doubt up to
the time Heppner, the last squad to
shoot, finished on trap four. Hepp
ner was tied with Klamath when
the former was part way through
its final string of 25, but the eastern
Oregon gunners dropped three birds
in the final round which kept them
from their second shoot-off cham
pionship. Heppner won the cham
pionship two years ago.
Anyone men, boys, women or
girls who would care to donate

instructive address to -the class.

and then held out to the class the
ideal of still more achievements
that are possible in the future.

of a higher education to the mem
bers of the class, Professor Morris
did not urge its members to Indis
criminately enter college, but to
pick their future with care, and

Barratts Buy 8000-Acre
Ranch at Parkers Mill
A deal was closed this week
whereby W. B. Barratt and Son, of
this city take over the Parkers Mill
ranch of 8000 acres from Mrs. Ada
M. Ayers. This deal includes the
mill site and all lands adjoining.
We did not learn the consideration.
Messrs. Barratt and Son will im
prove the place, making a summer
home of it for some of the sheep
and cattle, and It will be an ex
cellent addition to their present ex
tensive land holdings beyond Sind
Hollow, where they can take much
of their stock that will not go into
the high mountains for the sum
mer, thus relieving the range for
that period during the summer
months at the home place.
The following committees have
been appointed to look after the
various duties in putting on the
Chautauqua celebration next
week. If any are unable to serve
they are asked to kindly notify
