It Is doubtful if any other Jubilee company in America can boast of as large a repertoire as is featured by the Shaver Jubilee company. This remarkable singing organization, under the personal direction of James A. Shaver, has proven tre mendously popular during the past few years not only because of Its concert experiences throughout the east and middle west, but more es pecially because of its weekly radio program given over the WLS sta tion in Chicago. The Shavers give the opening number of Heppner's Community course next Thursday evening at Heppner school auditor ium, beginning at 7:30 sharp. Mr. Shaver has long been a stu dent of negro folk songs and the popular negro spirituals. The com pany has a repertoire of more than ninety negro songs, many of which have seldom been heard by concert audiences. In nine cases out of ten request numbers from the audience can be rendered without the use of music. The Shaver program is a series of colorful musical pictures from the old cotton fields and their old re ligious camp meetnigs. It is typic ally a negro musical program thru out, and Mr. Shaver has selected a group of talented vocalists in the personnel of his organization. Each member has had wide experience not only in ensemble singing but in solo work as well. An outstanding feature of the Shaver program is the excellent en semble singing, perfected through many seasons of constant singing with the same group of artists. A delightful feature will be the read ings by Mr. Shaver, who will give favorite selections from the works of Paul Lawrence Dunbar, the fa mous negro poet Miss La Julia Rhea, contralto, has been personally commended by Her bert Witherspoon, for voice and ar tistry, and was the winner of the Illinois second prize for the Atwat-er-Kent Audition last year. She re cently appeared as soloist before the National Association of Negro Musicians at St Louis. Her work la another outstanding feature of the program. Besides Mrs. Shaver and Miss Rhea, the personnel includes Miss Jamesanna Weathers, soprano; Mr. LeRoy W. Jennings, basso, and Miss Vivian Fowler Gentry, pianist. Heppner Defeats Lex; League Starts in Week Heppner high school's football warriors, fo rthe first time this sea son Bhowing a semblance of smooth ness and snapiness, carried their lighter Lexington opponents off their feet to the tune of 19-0, on the letter's gridiron. Saturday after noon. This was not an Upper-Columbia league game, the schedule for which will start for the locals next week when they meet Arlington on the local Held. Heppner tasted defeat two weeks previous at the hands of the Lex ington team when they clashed here, and the locals were also tram pled on at Hermiston last week, this being their first victory since the season opened. But it was a different appearing team that Coach Poulson placed on the field Saturday. They kept the ball almost constantly in Lexington territory, their opponents threaten ing only on two occasions. Once Buster Gentry Intercepted a Hepp ner pass to race some forty yards before being downed dangerously near Heppner's goal. Another time Lexington marched the ball for sev eral first downs well Into Heppner territory before being stopped. Hake, Gentry and Robertson fea tured In Heppner's ground gaining and scoring. These boys tore through for yardage time and again, thrice carrying the ball over their opponents' goal line from well up field by combined aensal and line attacks. Harold Gentry was the outstanding yardage gainer, making several long end runs in which he twisted and squirmed past many Lexington defenders before being downed, besides -making good re turns on all Lexington punts. Extra point after touchdown was made but once, this by a straight line piay. With the large amount of lm provement evidenced In the game Saturday, hope of copping the lea gue pennant has risen many de grees. If the intervening two weeks of Inactivity does not have the ef fect of causing the boys to go stale, they should give a very good ac count of themselves against Arling ton. Heppner's line-up In the Lexing ton game: Rod Thomson and Clarence Hay es, ends; Fletcher Walker and Paul Jones, tackles; Richard Walker and Harlan Dcvln, guards; Evans, cen ter; Duane Brown and Elmer Hake, half backs; Hank Robertson, full back; Harold Gentry, quarterback. The next regular meeting of the American Legion Auxiliary will be Monday night, October 22. Host esses will be Mrs. J. B. Cox and Mrs. Garnet Barratt. ATTEND BIRTHDAY DINNER. Mr. and Mrs Vawter Crawford nnd Mrs. Alice Adklns were guests at the home of Mr. and Mrs. Grant Olden on Tuesday evening, to help those good people celebrate the birthday anniversary of Mrs. Olden. Other guests had been invited, but were prevented from attending. One of these was Mrs. Zena Westfall, head nurse of Morrow General hos pital, whose birthday Is on the same date as Mrs. Olden's, and who was prevented from attending by the influx of new patients arriving the first of the week at the hospital. A dinner of wonderful fried chicken, with what goes with It, was enjoyed to the limit and a most pleasant evening spent, during which time interesting talks and splendid mu sic were listened to over the radio. The Olden home is situated on the place where Mrs. Crawford was born, but In the long years that have passed since she was a child there many changes have occurred and little Is left to remind her of those days, except the everlasting hills. Mr. and Mrs. Olden have a very fine home on this place, and it is Indeed a pleasure to visit there. L Latest word from Mr. and Mrs. D. A. Wilson who have been In Portland for the past week with their small daughter Dorotha, a patient at the Doernbecher hospi tal for children, was to the effect that the child was progressing nicely. She took nourishment twice on Sunday and enjoyed the visit by her parents that day. Little Doro tha Is afflicted with intestinal trou ble similar to that reported to have attacked several other children In this vicinity. Before a sheriff's jury on Mon day an attachment case was tried out, wherein Jack Gorham of Boardman was plaintiff and Rlver vlcw Farm corporation, defendant A ferry boat was under attachment by Gorham, and B. C. Russell & Co. of Seattle were intervenors, claim ing ownership of the boat The Jury, however, held ownership to be in the Riverview Farm Corporation, and awarded judgment to Mr. Gor ham In the sum of $1249.35 and $16 costs. The Pioneer reunion at Lexington is a matter of considerable Interest here. This occurs on Friday, Octo ber 26, with a big dinner in the high school gymnasium at noon, followed by a fine program at the same place in the afternoon and evening. We had been promised the program for this week's issue, but for some reason it did not reach us. Henry Rauch, who farms in the Lexington section, visited Heppner on Saturday. A few days previous It had been quite cold out his way, ice freezing on the watering trough quarter of an Inch thick. Mr. Rauch stated also that It was still too dry for seeding and rain was badly needed for any grain that had been put In the ground. Orders taken for fresh cider.

GAME IN COUNTY j 1 CMS DIES 1I0T FOUND MOW essrss-, REMEDY SAYS MAYOR Season's Deer Kill Larg est in Years; Quail May Be Had Sunday. Probably the most successful deer season ever opened in the county will come to a close day after to morrow. No exact check has been made on the number of deer bagged, but it Is a safe estimate to say that at least 200 have been brought In and through Heppner alone. Hard ly a day has passed since the open ing day that one or more have not been brought in, and some days there have bene as high as a dozen. Birds are also numerous, judging from the fine bags brought in each hunting day. So far Chinese pheas nat and Hungraian partridge have been the game, but beginning Sun day quail will be added to the list for each open day, Wednesdays and Sundays, till the end of the month, making four more days of bird hunting before the season closes. Some hunters say that birds are scarcer this year. . However, It is known that the game becomes ex ceptionally wild and elusive soon after the opening of the season and very little successful hunting is done without the aid of a good dog. Hunters with such dogs are having little trouble in bagging their limit, three roosters and a hen for any one day. The Blue mountains are especially popular with deer hunters from the outside because of the prevalence of the mule-tailed deer, the largest deer inhabiting forests of the state. The male deer not uncommonly weigh well over 200 puonds. So far the largest deer to come to Hepp ner, judged by he contest conduct ed by the Peoples Hardware com pany, weighed 247 pounds. This deer was killed by Foster T. Collins of Hardman, and so far is the larg est deer to be entered In the hard ware company contest. The weight of the animal is taken hog-dressed, with head and legs attached. The largest number of deer to be brought in in one bunch, was brought in last week by a party of hunters composed of several of the Matteson boys and E A. Bennett There were 11 In this bunch. Lyle Matteson so far has the buck with the largest spread of horns, measur ing 3254 Inches from tip to tip. Mayor Noble Issues Hall Deer owe en ee "Hallowe'en is commonly accept ed In this land of ours as a time for revelry and the general display of good spirits. As such it is befitting for the citizens of Heppner to enter into the spirit of the day and en joy themselves to the fullest," says Mayor E. G. Noble in his 1928 Hal lowe'en proclamation. However, it has become a cus tom in years past for some unthink ing persons to make of the time an occasion for devilment, resulting in destruction of property and the jeopardy of life. "Therefore, I, E. G. Noble, mayor of the city of Heppner, believing that the latter custom is not in ac cordance with the true spirit of Hal- lowen and not to be tolerated, do hereby declare offenders to be a public nuisance and hereby empow er all citizens wjth police duty to arrest any miscreant who may tres pass upon his property on that eve ning, and urge that such power be thoroughly and stringently used." Beautiful Apples Come From Grant Co. Ranch By parcel post today this office rceived a box of very beautiful ap ples, sent us from the ranch of Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Stevens. They are very large and a winter variety, the name of which Mrs. Stevens did not mention and we shall have to get this from some fruit expert that may happen In the shop. Mr. and Mrs. Stevens but recent ly moved to this place at Courtrock, some eighteen miles beyond Monu ment, and evidently they have a very fine orchard on the place. They like their new home very much, and will be pleased to have any of the Morrow county friends call -on them should they be over that way. GET NAMES ON HONOR ROLL. Mrs. Lillian Turner, who teaches the 7th and 8th grades of the Lex ington school, hands in a report of those of her pupils who have had their names placed on the honor roll during the past week.

The degree team from Hermiston will I put on the floor work, Photo by Sigsbee Foster T. Collins of Hardman, Is here shown with a big buck deer killed by him and brought to town last Friday to be entered In the contest being conducted by the Peo ples Hardware company. -It weigh ed in, hog dressed, at 247 pounds and to date is the largest buck weighed in over the hard ware com pany's scales. It may be noticed from the picture that a considerable chunk of meat was cut out of the neck, which reduced the weight of the animal by several pounds. U. 0. SERVICE AIDS STATE BUSINESS Extension Division and Editorial Association Hold Ad Meetings. University of Oregon, Eugene, October'17. Completion of arrange ments for a statewide business im provement service, to be carried out through a series of educational lec tures dealing with advertising to be extended eventually to every busi ness community of the state, was announced today through the office of Harris Ellsworth, field manager of the Oregon State Editorial asso ciation. This will bo one of the major activities of the editorial as sociation initiated this year, and brings to materialization one of the original plans which the executive committee of the association had at the time of establishment of the field manager's office. The first of the series of short courses will take place on next Thursday night October 18, 1928, at Grants Pass, when Mr. Ellsworth with Frank Jenkins, editor of the Morning Register and president of the Eugene chamber of commerce, will discuss advertising with the business men of Grants Pass at a dinner. On Friday night Mr. Jen kins will again- speak with the bus iness community of Medford, at a dinner to be held at the Medford hotel. These two meetings will get the state-wide program under way, and further dates are being scheduled. The lectures will be given through the cooperation of the University of Oregon extension division, and will be extended to all communities of the state where there are both daily and weekly papers, as rapidly as funds can be obtained for carry ing on the program. In each in stance the field manager will con duct the meeting and he will usual ly be assisted by a man experienced in the practical side of advertising, frequently by one of the officers of the association. Mr. Ellsworth will leave early next week on a trip into the south ern part of the state and will ar range meetings in Roseburg and the Coos Bay district. Already, ex pressions of endorsement to the plan are being received at the field manager's ollice, and the co-operation of both newspaper men and merchants of the state is assured. "From the time I took the field manager's post, It has been my de sire to work out some plan for pro moting a better understanding of advertising among the merchants of Oregon," declared Mr. Ellsworth today. "With the co-operation of the university extension bureau, I believe that we have the sort of ar rangement that we want for an ef fective educational program, and its success seems assured." The first meeting at Grants Pass was arranged with the cooperation of A. E. Voorhies, of the Grants Pass Daily Courier. C. A. Swlgart, manager of the Medford Daily News and vice-president for South ern Oregon of the editorial associa tion, and S. Sumpter smith, mana ger of the Medford Mall Tribune, assisted In arranging the Medford conference. INSURANCE PAID PROMPTLY. Mrs. Rose Howell, clerk of Maple circle, Neighbors of Woodcraft, re ceived a check the first of the week covering the insurance of $2000 car ried in tho order by the late Mrs Ella Florence. This is prompt re sponse, as it had been less than two weeks since the prooi or death had gone Into the head office. Young Folks Joy Ride Into Wee Hours ; City Business Discussed. That an ordinance closing public dances at midnight would not have the desired effect of putting Hepp ner's young folks securely under their bed covers at an early hour, Is the belief of Mayor Noble. He expressed the opinion that the city was not as much at fault as the home for the averred late hours of many of the city's younger set This statement was made at the special meeting of the city council Monday night in answer to a query on behalf of the school board If there was such an ordinance on the city statute books. It developed that no such ordinance now exists. Mr. Noble related that from his personal observations many auto mobiles are seen parked on the highways adjacent to the city even after dances that have run until 2 or 3 o'clock in the morning. He said also that the school grounds are a popular parking place for many of the late joy riders. The mayor could not see any good to be accomplished by sending the young folks away from the dances earlier that they might joy ride longer. However, if the school board desired such an ordinance, he would not stand in the way of Its passage. The special meeting was called to consider proposals for improving the water supply. As no proposals were made, no action in this re gard was taken. It is expected that the engineer's report will be pre sented at the regular meeting in two weeks. Some discussion was had of the proposed bridge improvement, but as bids so far received are deemed out of reason, the only action taken was to appoint a special committee to go into the matter further. At the request of Mayor Noble and Councilman Bisbee the council authorized graveling on Elder street in front of the residence property of these gentlemen, Mr. Noble and Mr. Bisbee to cooperate with the city on a 60-50 basis. This is the plan that has been followed by the council in other parts of the city. The aid was asked largely to better parking conditions at the school grounds opposite their prop erty, where they say several school children are in the habit of park ing their cars. During rainy sea sons in the past this parking space is said to have been in very bad shape. MASQUERADE ON 27th. Arrangements have been made for a Grand Masquerade dance to be given at the Elks temple Satur day night October 27. Prizes are being offered for the best costumes, most comical, and best character, both lady and gentleman, also a special prize to every masker on the ball room floor at 9:30.

Yeon, Good Roads Father Who Died Mon day, Makes Statement "People who favor the Dunne mo tor vehicle tax bills should look the facts squarely in the face and real ize that there Is absolutely no chance of passing the two-cent gas tax increase measure," declared John B. Yeon, one of the fathers of Oregon's highway system and pres ident of the Oregon Good Roads association, the day before he was taken to a Portland hospital for a serious operation from which he never recovered, being called to the great beyond on Monday. 'Those who say "The Dunne bills are fundamentally sound, even if they have a few weaknesses that can be ironed out by the legislature,' must realize that the people who vote for license fee reduction be cause they think they are paying too much tax, are not going to vote at the same time for an increase in gas tax," continued Mr. Yeon. "Peo ple simply don't vote that way, and particularly the more than 50,000 Oregonians who pay no tax other than that on their automobiles. "This is the fundamental weak ness of the position of practically all well-meaning people who favor the Dunne bill, which in itself takes $4,500,000 annually from our high way fund, prevents any new con struction, prevents us from accept ing Federal aid, and robs vitally im portant maintenance of nearly 40 per cent of the money required. Once let them realize that the gas tax increase bill will be snowed un der, 20 to one, and that real prop erty, already over-burdened, must carry an extra load if our highway system does not go to rack and ruin, and the Dunne license fee pro posal would receive no more votes than the gas tax increase. It lsn t necessary to vote for the Dunne bill in order to register dis approval of our present system. Everybody realizes that It is time for a change. What the Oregon Good Roads association is after Is a tax readjustment that will satisfy tne majority of motorists and per mit the state to go through with our highway program without bank rupting real property. 'While the Joe Dunne bill pro posing a reduction in fees for mo tor vehicles has many glaring de fects, probably the most important of these is the provision relating to me tees ror trucks and trailers. It is conservatively estimated that transportation companies using the state highways built and paid for by me motorists or Oregon would save around 80 per cent through the pas sage of the Joe Dunne measure. Analysis of the bill shows that the huge trailers equipped with solid tires would be entirely relieved from the payment of fees, regardless of weight, capacity or use. This is not all, for examination of the bill dis closes the fact that two-wheel trail ers are wholly exempt from the payment of any license fee, wheth er they be operated as common car riers for compensation, and regard less of the load on their wheels and their weights. Under existing schedules a six- ton trailer, weight 7,300 pounds and equipped with 32-inch solid tires would, on the Eugene-Portland run, pay $254.16 common carrier fees, while under the Joe Dunne bill, the receipts by the state would be only $15.00. The present license fee of $63, and an extra fee of $16 collect ed by the state for solid tires is also eliminated by the Joe Dunne meas ure. "Giant trailers with solid tires pound along the highways, causing considerable damage to the roads, and the state would not be compen sated under the provisions of the bill initiated by Joe Dunne." ROAD MATTERS UNDECDDED. Judge R. L. Benge and Commis sioner L. P. Davidson went to Port land last week to hold a consulta tion with the state highway com mission concerning the release of certain roads In the county from state market road supervision. This matter had been up before, and the county court were led to believe that their request might be accept able to the commission, and they were to make an answer at this meeting. However, as we get it, this application is still held up, and there is little to encourage the court as matters now stand. The members of our court got a standoff in snape of a promise from one of the commissioners that at their next meeting he would recommend that the application be accepted, but there is not a great deal to hang their hopes on, if we have the cor rect slant of the court REBECCA HEAD TO VISIT. Louise A. Perrozi, president of the Rebecca Assembly of Oregon, will visit the local Rebecca lodire tomor row night October 19. All members who possibly can are urged by Relta iNem, Nome Grand, to attend. A most pleasant and profitable eve ning Is assured. DEGREE OF HONOR TO MEET.
