All Phases of Industry
Taken Up by Specialists
of Prominence.
As one of a series of district meet
ings being held by the Oregon Wool
Growers association, sheepmen of
the Heppner district are meeting
at the Elks temple In this city this
afternoon. K. O. Warner, president,
and Walter Holt, secretary, of the
association, accompanied by James
Kershaw, wool expert of the Pacific
Cooperative . Wool Growers' asso
ciation, Elmer Williams, of the U.
S. Biological survey, and Dr. J. N.
Shaw, veterinarian for the Oregon
Agricultural college, are conducting
the meeting, and each has an Im
portant place on the program.
In commenting on meetings al
ready held at Enterprise, Baker,
Vale, Canyon City, Burns, Lake
view, Prlnevllle, Shaniko and Fos
sil, President Warner said this
morning, "Those meetings although
coming at a busy season, have been
well attended and as a result the
membership of the Oregon associa
tion has been greatly strengthened.
It has been extremely gratifying to
note the interest that has been
shown toward the work that the
Oregon Wool Growers' association
is doing for the sheep industry and
what it has in view for the future."
Mr. Warner's address to the
sheepmen discusses matters of leg
islation of Importance to the sheep
Industry. The uniform bounty law
and wool tariff are included in
these. He makes a plea for closer
organization for protection of the
sheepmen's interests.
Mr. Kershaw's part of the pro
gram, In a discussion of wool grades
and handling of fleeces, includes a
demonstration of wool grading, in
which he uses eight fleeces of wool
In demonstrating seven grades as
known to the wool-buying trade. His
talk, together with those of other
men taking part on the program,
will be reprinted In full in next
week's Issue.
To acquaint wool men of the
range countries with the activities
of the association the secretary,
Walter A. Holt, deals with facta and
figures of the program and the ac
complishments of the association.
By means of charts, cartoons and
oral discourse Mr. Holt presents a
mass of evidence designed to show
why wool growers should Join the
organization. He makes it very
plain through the use of authenti
cated figures that permittees on the
forests of Oregon will effect an an
nual saving In excess of $125,000 In
grazing fees alone through the fight
put up by the organized stockmen
against proposed increases In fees.
According to Mr. Holt the proposed
average fees of 11c .per head of
sheep per month on the forest was
battered down to the point where In
1931 an average of 4 toe will prevail.
"This tremendous accomplishment
can undeniably be .credited to that
comparatively small band of organ
ized stockmen, sheep, cattle and
horse, who stayed together through
thick and thin, paid their dues and
fought the battles of the industry
against tremendous odds, while the
non-member did nothing and yet
reaped the benefits equal to those
of the men who carried the load,"
said Mr. Holt
In discussing the Hoch-Smith res
olution, passed by a recent session
of Congress as an agricultural re
lief measure, the secretary used a
chart to show present freight rates,
the schedule being asked for by or
ganized livestock interests, and'the
scale of tariffs for which a stiff fight
Is being waged before the interstate
commerce commission by railroad
Interests and Interior meat packers.
The organized wool growers are
asking for a schedule of rates that
will effect saving to sheep shippers
of more than $160 per car on a two
thousand mile haul .when compared
with the tariffs being urged by the
railroads. Membership dues paid
by wool growers re being used In
fighting this case. "Let's not be
forced out of this fight through lack
of funds when a fair measure of
success is in sight," said Mr. Holt
The price of membership in the Ore
gon Wool Growers' association is at
the rate of one and one-half cents
per head of shei on January first
of each year.
To provide an Increasing market
for the growing lamb and mutton
crop of this country the National
Wool Growers' association has In
augurated a campaign of educa
tion among butchers, meat packers
and consumers designed to show
that all of the carcass of the sheep
may be converted Into delicious.
wholesome food at prices within
range of all. "It is truly remark.
able," said the secretary, "to see
these meat cutting demonstrations.
and butchers In more than thlrty-
iive ciues oi tne united states are
showing a tromendously Increased
activity In the greater use of lamb
and mutton. This campaign spon
sored by organized sheepmen has
unquestionably been a big factor in
holding up the price of lambs, and
in spite or a lamb crop this year 8
larger than last the price of lambs
on the Chicago market the second
week In July of this year was from
one dollar to a dollar fifty above the
corresponding period last year.." It
is dillicult to understand why any
sheepman will withhold his support
from a movement of this sort which
as time goes on with increasing
snccp production, will become In.

It's A Great Gam?
Sickness Claims Pioneer
Sheepman; Funeral is .
Largely Attended.
Another prominent and pioneer
citizen of this community has been
called to his reward in the death
of L. V. Gentry at his ranch home
on Hinton creek on Saturday morn
ing, August 4, after an Illness of a
week's duration.
Funeral services were held at
Elks temple on Sunday afternoon
with burial following in Masonic
cemetery, the beautiful ceremony of
the order being used both at the
hall and at the grave, the officers
of the lodge being assisted by Rev.
Stanley Moore, minister of the local
Episcopal church. These services
were attended by one of the largest
gatherings of friends, neighbors and
lodge brethren that has ever assem
bled on a like occasion In this city,
many coming from adjoining com
munities to attest in this manner
their esteem for one they had
known so long.
Mr. Gentry was born in Madison
county, Iowa, July 18, 1873, and died
at Heppner, Oregon, August 4, 1928,
being aged 55 years and 16 days. He
was the son of Frank M. and Nancy
ShaelTer Gentry, and with his par
ents and other members of the fam
ily came to Morrow county when a
small lad, growing up in this com
munity. He was married at Hepp
ner on November 2, 1897, to Miss
Alice Donahue. In early manhood
he learned the barber business and
for many years was engaged In the
trade at Heppner. Some twenty
years ago he went Into the sheep
business and acquired the ranch on
Hinton creek where he operated
until his death.
L. V. Gentry was known as a
generous hearted man, and the mis
fortunes and needs of those about
him never failed to appeal to his
spirit of generosity. He was public
spirited to a marked degree and
was instrumental in starting1 Hepp
ner s annual tall event, the Rodeo,
in wnicn association he was an
officer from the beginning. It was
largely through his efforts that
Heppner now has a splendid ath
letic field, the rodeo grounds and
ball park bearing his name. Be
cause of these characteristics which
had become so generally known.
Mr. Gentry had made many friends
in mis and other communities, and
his passing at this time is keenly
regretted Dy tnem all.
Mr. Gentry is survived by his
widow, Mrs. Alice Gentry, and five
brothers and three sisters. These
are Loren of Alberta, Canada; El
mer of Colfax, Wash.; F. A., M. T.,
andJ. H. of Heppner; Mrs. B. F.
Ward, of Meeteetse, Wyo.; Mrs. H.
S. Parcell of Dillon, Mont, and Mrs.
A. J. Brock of Portland. All the
brothers and sisters were able lo be
present for the funeral services
with the exception of Loren, who
is ill at his home In Alberta.
We wish to thank nur f Henri
neighbors and the Elks for the
many beautiful floral offerinc-a for
their kindly assistance and many
expressions of genuine sympathy
tenaerea us in the bereavement of
our beloved husband and brother.

Regulating Statute Has
First, Second Readings ;
Hour Parking Tabled.
Standard state highway stop
signs, bearing the inscription "Stop
State Highway," have arrived,
and Marshal Devin has been busy
this week painting posts on which
to erect the signs. The signs are
yellow with black lettering, and the
posts are being painted yellow with
a black stripe. Ordinance for en
forcement of the stop signs passed
first and . second readings Monday
night and will come up for third
reading and vote at the next meet
ing of the city dads. The ordin
ance bears an emergency clause to
make it effective immediately on
The ordinance providing for an
hour parking limit on Main street
between May and Baltimore streets,
passed third reading at this meet
ing, and was tabled before being
put to a vote because of absence of
several councilmen. Members of
the council present Monday evening
were undetermined as to the desir
ability of the ordinance in its pres
ent form, believing tn"e regulation
might be misunderstood by out-of-town
people. A clause of the ordin
ance makes enforcement contingent
upon the will of business houses in
this section, it being the original
idea to keep a space clear in front'
of stores for convenience of the far
mer trade. It is the opinion of Mar
shal Devin that the ordinance would
be very difficult to enforce In its
present form. He suggested that it
would be better to give the business
houses the privilege of designating
a "No Parking" zone in front, using
a removable sign that could be tak
en in When the store is closed thus
permitting parking evenings, Sun
days and holidays.
The ordinance for enforcement of
the stop signs provide that all
streets, alleys or other thorough
fares leading into the Oregon-Wash
ington highway within the city, be
made "stop streets,'" necessitating
the coming to a complete stop of all
motor vehicles when coming onto
the highway from any . of these
thoroughfares. Since Main street
is a part of this highway, every
street leading into it will be made
a stop street If the ordinance passes
in its present form. There is a state
law already, making it compulsory
for motor vehicles to come to a
complete stop before entering on a
state highway, and the city is but
aiding In Its enforcement by means
of this ordinance.
The council voted to send S. P.
Devin, city marshal, to the Anti
Crime conference, being the annual
meeting of the Northwest Associa
tion of Sheriffs and Police, to be
held at Boise, Idaho, August 16, 17
and 18. S. E. Notson, a state vice
president of the association, will ac

Certified Wheat Fields
Listed by County Agent
The production of certified seed
wheat In Morrow county has gained
considerable prominence in certain
sections of Washington and Oregon
and those producing certified seed
should find no difficulty in placing a
large per cent of the seed wheat
this year, according to C. W. Smith,
county agent. Inquiries have come
to the county agent's office from the
Grand Ronde and Baker valleys for
certified seed wheat end Chas. N.
Jensen and A. Mattison of Bickle
ton. Wash., were in Heppner Mon
day getting certified seed for sowing
seed plots on their farms. The fol
lowing farmers of Morrow county
had grain that passed the field In
spection for certification and should
have plenty of good seed to supply
their neighbors.

To grow certified seed wheat the
grower must take particular pains
in keeping the seed clean so that no
mixture is permitted to get In, says
Mr. .Smith. As it is usually sold in
small lots the advantage of dispos
ing of the entire crop in one sale is
lost Therefore it Is necessary in
most cases for them to charge a
premuim for good seed, which is
entirely justified. Farmers that do
not have seed that is comparatively
free from mixture will find it prof
itable to purchase certified seed,
and produce a crop of wheat that
will not be subject to dockage when
sold because of being mixed.

may be said (and very truthfully)
that Pendleton, at the close of one

Ordinance In Effect Since
Monday; Radio Club
Aids In Work.
Eetter radio reception in Heppner
is the design of the Heppner Radio
club, whose Interests are protected
by a city ordinance in effect since
Monday, after its passage 30 days
previous. The ordinance, copied af
ter similar laws In other cities, pro
vides that any kind of electrical ap
aratus that brodacasts radio inter
ference, shall, upon being reported
to the city marshall, be ordered
fixed or not to be run during recep
tion hours.
The radio listeners' club, with a
membership comprising a large
number of radio set owners as well
as other citizens of the city who be
lieve that radio reception in the city
should be made as good as it is pos
sible to make it, has undertaken the
task of locating interfering noises.
The club completed steps of organ
ization last Friday evening at the
council chambers wjien Earl W.
Gordon was elected president and
Jasper V. Crawford, secretary-treas
'There is a great deal of local in
terference," states Mr. Gordon, "and
it may take at least three months
to get rid of it All that can be done
is to fix the noises that are now
known to interfere with reception
so that other noises may be located.
It is a gradual elimination process
and will take time." ,
Mr. Gordon says that investiga
tion so far has revealed a willing
ness on the part of most everyone
to cooperate, and already a few per
sons have had noises fixed where
they were known to interfere. Oth
ers are but waiting to be notified by
proper authority to eliminate inter
ference arising from aparatus on
their premises.
According to expert authority re
ceived by the club there is no kind
of radio Interference that cannot
be overcome. In some instances,
such as x-ray machines and electro
magnets having a make and break,
it is necessary to install quite an
expensive shield to overcome it com
pletely. Induction motors need only
to be grounded, however, to elimin
ate what trouble they may cause.
In case anyone has any kind of elec
trical device that he is not certain. .
about it will be appreciated by the
club and it may save the owner any
futuce bother, if he will report it to
the club who will make necessary
tests and advise if it is throwing out
interierence ana ir so what may be
done to eliminate It
The Pacific Power & Light com
pany cooperates to the fullest ex
tent in eliminating noises coming
from their property, wherever they
maintain service. They keep a ra
dio expert on the job to locate and
fix these, and he will come to Hepp
ner when word is sent him by the
radio club. i
It is pointed out that the work of
eliminating radio interference is not
being done because of any pet
grievances of just a few owners of
sets. Everyone owning a set or who
appreciates "listening in" is inter
ested. The total expenditure for
radio sets in the city is probably as
large, if not larger, than the amount
invested in electrical devices that
are causing interference, and the
rights of the radio owners are equal
to those owning other electrical
equipment even though this equip
ment be operated for a profit Co
operation on the part of everyone
will speed the work, and obviate the
necessity of anyone being penalized
as provided by the ordinance.
Marshall Devin Is already busy
notifying owners of trouble-causing
machines who are taking necessary
steps for stopping interference.
David A. Wilson is the holder of

is quite a bit of luck involved in
getting through the sagebrush and

all good luck, as natural hazards
caused him considerable grief. Hol
