PHILL COHN PASSES
Was Long a Resident and
Following an operation perform
ed at Portland on Wednesday of
last week, Phlll Cohn, for long years
a prominent business man of Hepp
ner, passed away on Thursday eve
ning, at the age of 67 years.
Mr. Cohn had been at Heppner
for pioneer day and to look after
business affairs here, when he was
taken ill and hurried to his Port
land home and soon after arriving
in the city submitted to the opera
tion from which he failed to rally.
He was a sufferer from serious
stomach trouble, but had not really
been 111 but a very short time,
though it is evident that his trouble
had been coming on for some four
or five years.
This last trip to Heppner seemed
to have been impressed upon Mr.
Cohn as his farewell visit here, and
before leaving for Portland he bid
many of his friends good-bye and
expressed the belief that he would
not visit here again. Friends who
parted with him at this time state
that he was in a very cheeful mood.
He had arranged all his business
affairs, and was ready to undergo
the operation which he realized was
but a slight hope, and stated that
he was fully prepared to go. The
operation appeared quite successful
at first, but this was only temporary
and his condition became alarming
early on Thursday because of his
heart condition, the end was rapid.
Members of the family here hurried
to Portland, but were unable to
reach the city before Mr. Cohn pass
Funeral services were held on
Monday at 10:S0 a. m., at the chapel
of Holman and Lutz, with final rites
at Portland crematorium. Active
pall bearers from this city were H.
A. Duncan, L. V. Gentry, L. Van
Marter and Dr. A. H. Johnston. The
funeral, was attended by many who
went down from Heppner and by
the large number of former resi
dents of this county now living In
the city. The floral offerings were
many and beautiful.
Phill Cohn was born In Shasta,
Calif., November 13, 1861, and as a
young man he came to Heppner In
1877, taking a position in the gen
eral mercantile store of Heppner &
Plockman, his nncles. He continu
ed to live at Heppner for about 45
years, during all of which time he
followed merchandising and ware
housing. In business Mr. Cohn was
very successful, and accumulated a
neat fortune. He was an outstand
ing figure In the business affairs of
this community, and there are a
great many residents of this county
who will testify to the splendid as
sistance they had received in a fin
ancial way from him through many
years of stress; he was ever ready
to stand behind the man who was
struggling along on farm and ranch,
and by his timely financial help as
sisted many of our citizens In get
ting on their feet. These all have
a kindly word for their late bene
factor, and express sincere sym
pathy because of his departure. He
was a good citizen of this commun
ity and always Interested in the
upbuilding of Heppner as the best
little town on the map. In his death
the entire community has lost a
good friend and his going is sin
cerely regretted by a very large
host of our people who have been
so long associated with him.
The marriage of Mr. Cohn to
Henrietta Goldstone took place at
San Francisco on May 4, 1892. Three
children were born to this union,
Hurold A., Henry P. and Elinor.
These with the widow survive, the
two boys being residents of this
city and engaged in business here,
while the daughter resides with her
mother at Portland, where the
family took up their residence a
few years ago. Other surviving rel
atives of Mr. Cohn are his mother,
Mrs. Elizabeth Cohn, and two bro
thers, Jerry and Dr. Jacob Cohn,
and a sister, Mrs. William E. Stark,
all residents of Boise, Idaho; two
sisters, Mrs. C. A. Magaw of Holt
vllle, and Mrs. Sarah Moar of Bev
erley Hills, Calif.
He was a charter member of
Heppner Lodge No. 358, B. P. O.
Elks, and also Doric Lodge No. 20,
K. of P., In which order he held
membership until recently.

New Grass Success
On Alkali Ground
Last season, through the efforts
of County Agent Smith, an experi
ment was made with a new grass
that is especially adapted to alkali
ground. This plant is known as
Zawadke's Alkali Grass, raised by
John Zawadke of Marion, Montana.
The first planting was from a hand
full of seed on the Chas. Valentine
place, and It was about 18 months
before the blades of grass began to
come. Seeding more ground from
a bunch of the grass from the first
crop, the new plants put In their
appearance promptly, and now Mr.
Valentine has quite a showing. A
cutting from the crop this season
is about three feet in height, and
Mr. Zawadke, who raises the grass
quite extensively now, says It will
produce about four tons to the acre
of good forage for stock, and Mr.
Valentine states further, that the
stock like it
The Zawadke Alkali grass ap
pears to be a success, and It is now
being raised in many parts of the
country on alkali ground where no
other forage will grow, thus mak
ing this land of some value. A
number of other creek farmers are
now experimenting wtih this grass,
and it will not be long until it is
raised in sufficient quantities to
prove its value as a feed for stock.
The grass has just a tinge of salty
taste, sufficient to make it attrac
tive to stock and they eat it well.
A sample of the grass is now on
display in the office of Mr. Smith.
ITINERARY TO MORO.
Sunday, June 17, has been set
aside by D. E. Stephens, superin
tendent of the Moro Experiment
station as Morrow county day. Pre
sent plans, according to C. W.
Smith, are to leave Heppner at 8
o'clock and travel to Moro by way
of McNab, Rock creek and Arling
ton. As it has been reported that
the wheat section immediately south
of Blalock has a better prospect for
a crop this year than last, the cara
van will leave the highway at Bla
lock and the route will be through
the wheat section coming back to
the river at Quinton thence to Moro
for lunch. Anyone desiring to make
this trip should Inform the county
agent as he would like to know how
many are going and whether or not
any can hall an extra passenger, or
if you do not have transportation,
so that It can be arranged for.

Plan Hot Lunches
For School in Winter
At a school lunch demonstration
at Rhea Creek Grange hall on Mon
day, June 4, given by Miss Lucy A.
Case of Oregon Agricultural Col
lege extension service, a great deal
of interest and support was shown
in favor of the proposition of a hot
lunch dish in the schools next win
ter, and the following committees
were appointed by the chairman,
for the purpose of talking over the
possibilities of a hot school lunch
in these communities, and If possi
ble to put it into operation for the
children's welfare by the time cold
weather comes again.
The committees are:
Hardman school: Mrs. J. W. Ste
vens, chairman; Mrs. Harlan Ad
ams, Mrs. Hattie Bleakman.
Social Ridge school; Mrs. Lavilla
Howell, chairman; Mrs. Roy Camp
bell, Mabel Grey.
Heppner: Miss Lulu Hager, chair
man; Mrs. F. R. Brown, Mrs. Char
les W. Smith.
Rood Canyon school: Mrs. Joe
Batty, chairman; Mrs. Jim Hams,
Mrs. Floyd Adams.
It was suggested that the chair
men of these committees call their
members together at the first op
portunity and discuss arrangements
suitable for their particular condi
tions and circumstances.
In some of the smaller schools,
mothers take turns In bringing a
kettle of hot soup or other suitable
dish to school from home. At Is
land City each mother went to
school once a week and prepared
the one hot dish, and no charge
was made. The food was contribu
ted at "pound parties" given by the
parent-teacher association. At Mil
ton, which is operating the hot
schoal lunch very successfully un
der the direction of Mrs. W. S.
Ahearn, the Women's club pays a
good cook $10 a month o make hot
soup, and the older girls serve it
in very orderly fashion. Milton
parents who can afford to pay, con
tribute 50 cents per month, and the
club gives an entertainment to earn
the remaining expense money,
which amounts to about $14.00 a
month. At Imbler and Cove, the
girls' cooking classes prepare a hot
dish which is sold at around five
cents per serving. Another method
is for each child to bring a small
glass jar from home containing
food to be warmed over. The glass
jars are placed in water at school
and the water is heated shortly
before noon. Thermos bottles are
found useful by somebut children
usually enjoy more the things that
they share together.
Miss Case believes that the hot
lunch dish does most good when
every child gets a serving of one
hot dish from a common kettle, and
where the children are not required
to bring cash each day, and where
only one dish is served and that
one dish is a hot dish.
Better school work, better disci
pline, fewer days lost from school,
and less malnutrition was reported
from those schools that have the
advantage of the hot school lunch.
It is believed that much of the indi
gestion and other weakening diges
tive troubles among adults, has its
origin in the irregularity of eating
by the school child, the hurried eat
ing, the Inadequate noon meal, and
the "piecing" on sweets after school.
The hot lunch dish at noon at school
means a more balanced meal, slow
er eating and better digestion, eat
ing more at meal time and less in
between meals, better manners, and
more enjoyment of the noon hour.
Another valuable step toward pro
gress in healthful conditions for the
school child is the custom for all of
the children to sit down with the
teacher for fifteen minutes to eat,
whether they have a hot dish or
not Where the desired sixty min
utes can not be arranged for the
noon session, forty minutes, or forty-five
minutes and not less than
thirty-five minutes, with more time
for eating, for outdoor play, for
toilet habits, and for relaxation and
The meeting last week was the
last of a series of three well at
tended meetings on foods for health,
organized last February by Charles
W. Smith, county agent. The chair
men of nutrition work are Miss Nel
lie Wright and Mrs. J. W. Stevens,
and they are to be congratulated on
their excellent work and accom
plishments. AUXILIARY TO IIERMISTON.

SOFT RED WIFJTE
Market Review Predicts
Total Yield 1,000,000
(O. S. A. C. Extension Service.)
Corvallis, Oregon, June 11. Sum
marizing recent forecasts of wheat
production it appears that the total
production may be about 100,000,000
bushels less than was harvested in
the United States last year. During
the month of May, winter wheat
generally improved in condition, ex
cept in the western states, but
spring wheat declined to the low
est condition on record except in
1926. There may be as much or
more hard red winter wheat as last
year, but there will be a very short
crop of soft red winter. Stocks of
old wheat are believed to be no
larger than a year ago, with soft,
low protein kinds scarcer. World
supplies are said to be smaller than
a year ago, stocks of spring wheat
being relatively more abundant
than of winter wheat No import
ant recent changes in wheat pros
pects abroad have been reported.
The rye crop is expected to be very
small both in the United States and
in Europe. In fact it is said that
the rye prospect is the poorest since
the small crop of 1924. This gives
additional strength to bread grain,
offsetting to some extent the weak
ening influence of somewhat im
proved crop conditions last week
which caused some decline in cash
and future prices. .Corn declined
because of favorable new crop pros
pects, but flax was firmer because
of delayed and good demand. Bar
ley and oaU were about steady, al
though barley markets were dull.
The hay markets are generally
steady and seasonably firm with
prices seeking adjustment to con
flicting influences arising from
heavy old crop surpluses and poor
new crop prospects. Alfalfa and
clover meadows are reported much
damaged in the eastern and central
eastern states, so that dairymen in
these districts may be compelled to
buy western alfalfa before next
year. Alfalfa prices have tended
steadily upward since the beginning
of last season at the principal mar
kets, the average price of No. 1
having advanced from $18.00 a ton
to $26.00 from the middle of August
to the middle of May. The limited
supply of good alfalfa has been
mostly responsible for this advance.
New crop hay is now being mar
keted in the southwest and the
movement is said to be brisk with
quotations holding quite steady on
green, leafy hay suitable for dairy
purposes, although there is some
tendency for the markets to move
downward toward a new crop basis
with the season. Pacific coast mar
kets are featured by less demand
and heavier offerings. Pastures
continue in relatively poor condi
tion, but pasturage is available in
suilicient quantity to cause a sea
sonal decline in demand for feeds.
Installs Beautiful Musical
Instrument in Restaurant
Arthur W. Smith, of Spokane, in
stalled for Edward Chinn a grand
model Mills Violano-Virtuoso on
Tuesday, and the beautiful instru
ment has been an object of interest
and admiration at the Elkhorn res
taurant since. This musical instru
ment is a combination of violin and
piano, mechanically operated, the
music being pleyed from rolls. It
is worked by a small electric motor,
and of course a nickle has to be
placed in the slot before the music
will start. Around about the res
taurant, in convenient places are
receptacles for receiving the con
tribution, and these receptacles are
connected with the instrument by
electric wires, so that any customer
desiring to listen to a piece of music
places his coin in the slot, the con
nection is made and the music be
gins. One hearing the instrument
would think that at least a 5-piece
orchestra were playing, but it is ac
tually just a real violin and piano.
The instrument is manufactured
by the Mills Novelty company, of
Chicago, and is pronounced by the
U. S. government as one of the
eight greatest inventions of the de
cade. Its installation by Mr. Chinn
adds to the popularity of the Elk
horn and his customers wlil now be
entertained at all hours with excel

By shutting out Condon, 3-0, on
Rodeo field Sunday, the locals drop
ped the leaders down a notch, at
the same time raising their own
percentage, and giving at least two
other teams a chance for champion
ship should Wasco defeat Condon '
next Sunday. Condon still has a
one-game lead over Heppner, lone
and Wasco who are tied for second
position. In the last scheduled
games next Sunday Heppner meets
lone here and Wasco journeys to
Condon. If Wasco should defeat
Condon, Wasco and the winner of
the Heppner-Ione game will be In
a three-cornered tie for champion
ship honors. If Condon wins, they
get the pennant and the Wheatland
league season will be closed.
Heppner's "at home" jinx is still
going strong. All the breaks in
Sunday's game were In their favor,
and they played invincible ball
along with it Never did It look
like Condon had a ghost of a show.
"Ducky" Drake pitched ball as he
had never pitched before, and the
long touted "one bad inning" bug
failed to arrive. But six Condon
men reached first base, two reach
ed second and one third, on five
hits off Drake, and two erors, one
of which was a wild pitch the first
to be recorded against "Ducky" this
season. He has thrown a few wild
ones but this was the first too wild
for LaMear to stop. This allowed
one of the two Condon men to reach
second. The other error was on
Hisler at shortstop, who waited on
a slow grounder which he fielded
clean but threw wild to first base.
Drake walked one batter and
struck-out eleven. Clow, opposing
pitcher, was out four times via this
In the hitting department Ducky
was again responsible for his name
being written, "winning pitcher.
He made one of the three tallies and
drove in the other two. In the first
inning Van Marter took first base
when Baker at third muffed his
grounder, and scored on Drake's
three-bagger over the centerneld
fence, after Erwin and LaMear had
both been taken in by Rannow at
first Drake's blow would have
been good for a homer but for the
fast recovery made by Brown in the
center lot Hoskins' high fly to
Brown ended the inning.
The othre two tallies were made
in the fifth. Erwin, first up, took
first on Willimott's bungle of his
bounder. LaMear replaced him on
a fielder's choice, and was advanced
to third by Drake's single. He then
scored when Mr. Clow, becoming
agitated, threw one some twelve
feet over the catcher's, head, Drake
taking third. Drake scored on Hos
kins Texas leaguer over short
Cason out, pitcher to first, and
Thorn's tippy-up to third, completed
Condon had the heart taken out
of them in the first inning, and
failed to recuperate. Ashenfelter,
lead-off, singled when Baker hit in
to a double-play, Hisler to Van Mar
ter to Erwin. The double was pulled
so fast that Baker failed to reach
first base by eight feet Then Wil
limott singled and died on first
when Van Marter speared Brown's
turf-burner with one hand and
threw him out before Brown had
Lhardly dropped his bat Van's was
beautiful stop, and cut off what
looked to be a perfect hit
