Frye & Co. Coming With
Big Program of Magic,
Melody and Mirth.
William Eugene Frye, noted mag
ician and illusionist will unpack his
bag of tricks before local people at
the Heppner school auditorium next
Saturday evening at 7:30 o'clock.
For many years Mr. Frye has
been a leader in the field of magic
art and local people are assured of
a most Interesting and enjoyable
evening when he appears here as
the second number of Heppner's
community course . Not only does
Mr. Frye perform the most baffling
feats of magic but he finds time dur
ing the fast-moving program of il
lusions to take his audience into his
personal confidence and have a lot
of fun with them. He has a keen
sense of humor and a delightful
platform personality which causes
his audience to like him the moment
he steps before them.
His program is a big one and in
addition to the magical Bide, the
musical features offered by Miss
Leah Miles are in themselves most
delightful. Miss Miles is a pianist,
saxaphonist and soprano and her
numbers are worked into the magic
program In a most delightful man
ner. Do spirits return? This Is a ques
tion which has puzzled humanity
for all time. As an additional fea
ture of his program, Mr. Frye will
demonstrate how they can be made
to appear to return in a most inter
esting and enlightening expose of
fraudulent mediums.
The appearance of Frye and Com
pany will be a red-letter event for
local entertainment lovers. This
program is for both young and old.

lovely warm days with little rain,
I'm beginning to get settled now,

Attempted Train Wreck
Holds Up No. 12 at Irrigon
What appeared to be an attempt
to wreck a main line train at Irri
gon last night was reported to Sher
iff McDuffee at Heppner this morn
ing. A pile of ties had been placed
on the track which No. 12 hit, caus
ing it to be delayed an hour and a
half. The train was not -wrecked.
No trace has so far been found
as to who the culprit or culprits
might be, though a number of
hoboes were picked up in the vicin
ity early this morning. Complete
details were lacking in the report
to Sheriff McDuffee.

Corvallis, Ore., Nov. 12. Broad
Grain. Pacific coast wheat markets
were slightly more active last week.
There was a better demand from
Europe and soft red winter prices
in Eastern markets tended to be
firmer. Domestic wheat markets
held generally steady and there was
little change In the general wheat
market situation. Total exports of
North American wheat to date
about equals last year at this time,
the Canadian shipments being hea
vy enough to effect slow movement
from the United States.
Feed Grains. The barley market
was steady In the west but lower
in the east. Estimates now avail
able Indicate that northern hemis
phere countries which produce
about 80 per cent of the world bar
ley crop have produced 18.7 per
cent more barley than last year.
The crop was especially large In
eastern United States. Exports from
the United States to Europe from
been nearly twice as much as in
1927 to date but the movement has
slackened. Corn was firmer last
week on crop news indicating some
reduction compared to earlier es
timates. Hay and Feeds. Alfalfa hay mar
kets tend to continue firm although
the general hay market is dull be
cause of too much poor quality
hay. Feed markets continue gen
erally about steady although cotton
seed meal was dull with increasing
supplies of new crop seed.
Potatoes. If the estimated produc
tion of potatoes Is harvested there
will be 10 per cent more main-crop
potatoes in the 19 surplus-producing
states and 21 per cent more in me
16 deficient-producing late-potato
states than last year. The early
potato states had about 30 per cent
more than In 1927. The Increase is
accounted for by larger acreage and
a near-record yield. Idaho, Wash
ington and Oregon expect a de
crease of 17 per cent compared to
the large crop In 1927. Of course It
is possible that disease, wastage,
feeding, etc., will reduce the mar
ketable surplus but statistically it
appears that from now on there
will be about 40,000 car loads more
of potatoes to be marketed than a
year ago. The supply indicates zu,-
000 more cars and the movement is
20.000 cars behind last year. Liber
al production of home-grown pota
toes In importing states make tne
marketing situation more difficult
for shipping states. Although the
per capita supply of potatoes has
been larger in four out of the last
12 years, it is apparent that there
will be no shortage this year and
that all factors bearing on the sit
uation should be studied to Insure
anything like a reasonable return
to the grower.
Dairy Froducta. Butter markets
were steady last ween. -mere
seems to be some confidence devel
oping at present domestic price lev
els, but trading is mostly on a casn
basis without much speculation in
futures. Southern hemisphere but
ter and cheese Is beginning to arrive
In English markets in much heav
ier amounts than a year ago. New
Zealand production promises to be
a record-breaker, and Australian)
and Angentlna conditions are very
favorable, but demand is expected
to continue good In Great Britain
and Germany.
Poultry and Eggs. Storage eggs
tend to Bhow less weakness which
with some decrease in production
compared to last year makes the
situation a little more cheerful for
producers. Turkey marketing Is
getting under way. One northwest
association is reported to have sold
on the basis of 40 l-2c for prime
young toms. Receipts of live tur
keys at Texas dressing plants Is
reported light with birds under
Prices are said to tend to
ward 27-28c live weight for No. 1
stock delivered to packing plant
Livestock. Livestock markets were
unsettled following storms and the
election. Feeder and stocker sheep
reflected the weakness which has
prevailed In fat stock. Top grades
of beef advanced while lower grades
tended to weaken.
Wool and Mohair. Gradual im
provement in the wool markets, es
pecially on fine wools Is noted by
observers In this country and

Large Crowd at Armistice Day
Game Witnesses High School
Gridiron Classic.
The lighter Heppner high school
eleven, showing greatly improved
form since their defeat at Hermis
ton early in the season, gave the
same team the scare of their young
lives Monday afternoon on the local
field when they outpointed the visit
ors through much of the game, and
succeeded in holding them to a
scoreless tie. The game was played
on a firm field after the rains of
the previous evening, before the
largest crowd to witness a football
game here this season, people from
all over the county as well as many
followers of the Hermiston team
from Umatilla county attended the
game staged as part of the Armis
tice Day celebration.
Taking the ball from the first
kick-off, Heppner made three suc
cessive first downs, carrying the
ball well into Hermiston territory on
a succession of line bucks and end
runs In which Gentry, Robertson
and Hake featured, when, with their
best chance of the game to score at
stake, a fumble gave the ball to
their opponents who punted well out
of danger.
From then on both teams showed
signs of flash at Intervals, both mak
ing several first downs, but at no
time was the ball in play within the
ten yard zone of either team. Smith,
fullback for the visitors, was their
outstanding yardage gainer. His
broken-field running and line plung
ing were quite spectacular.- Once,
on a delayed off-tackle buck he suc
ceeded In eluding every Heppner
tackier until he came to the safety,
Gentry, who made a beautiful tackle
and prevented an almost certain
touchdown. Gentry was the back
bone of the Heppner offense as well,
making large gains through the line
as well as on end runs and the run
ning back of kicks. For his size,
weighing only 125 pounds, he is a
terribly hard hitter, and being fast
and elusive Is hard to stop. In this
game, for the first time in his foot
ball career, time was called out for
him. A head-on smash into a stal
wart Hermiston youth knocked him
groggy, but he was soon on his feet
and ready to go.
It was not a one-man nor a two-
man game Monday, however. Every
man on both teams was fighting
tooth and toe nail, and the light
Heppner line showed their metal on
more than one occasion when they
piled up the opponents' offensive or
broke through for tackles behind
the line. Two telling breaks were
made for the locals when Evans,
center, stretched his full 6 feet 6 to
snatch a Hermiston pass with his
finger tips, and again when Rod
Thomson broke through the oppon
ents line to fall on the ball when it
had been passed over a backfielder's
head by the opposing center.
The average weight of the start
ing lineups is given as 147 for Hepp
ner to 155 pounds for Hermiston.

ker. Clothing Demonstrations
Are Popular in Gounty
Mrs. Mabel Mack, home demon
stration agent from Oregon State
college, was a Heppner visitor yes
terday. Mrs. Mack has been con
ducting a series of two clothing
demonstration meetings at Board-
man, Irrigon and Alpine. She re
ports the meetings at Boardman
completed, and an enthusiastic in
terest manifested. Tailored finish
ing, children's clothing and remodel
ing are demonstrated in the course
The second meeting at Alpine was
held yesterday, and Mrs. Mack is at
Irrigon today for the second meet
ing there. The meetings are made
possible through the extension ser
vice of the college, with which the
local county agent's office copoer
Bert Sigsbee, manager of the Star
theater and for many years our lo
cal photographer, is combining the
two lines by investing in a movie
camera and picturing home scenes
for the screen. In addition to
few vacation shots and a Sunday
afternoon visit with some rancher
friends he has secured several hun
dred feet of the Rodeo, showing
the buckers, bull doggers, ropers,
racers and two prominent steer rid
ers, as well as parade and grand
stand scenes. The pictures are very
clear and distinct and Mr. Sigsbee
is highly elated over his first at
tempts. These local scenes will be
shown next Sunday and Monday
with the regular program at the
Star theater and are well worth
seeing. Another picture of consid
erable local interest Is four reels of
the 1928 Pendleton Round-Up which
will be shown with the regular pro
gram Saturday night
The magician and his mysterious manipulations hvae always had a
strong appeal not only to children but to adults as well. When Frye
and Company appear here next Saturday they will offer a program that
is baffling in the extreme. The magic repertoire includes the sword
cabinet, the vanishing pigeolfs, the twelve ringing alarm clocks, the
Chinese torture cabinet, the vanishing bowl and many other startling
demonstrations. A part of the program is devoted to an expose of
fraudulent mediums and in this, Mr. Frye not only demonstrates how
easy It is for fakers and charlatans to Impose on the belief of those who
seek their advice but also he explains fully Just how these spiritualistic
phenomena take place. In other words, he first performs the spiritualis
tic demonstrations, so-called, and then explains just how the medium
performs the "miracle."

Wool and Wheat Exhibits Win
High Places as Do County
Stock Judges.
C. W. Smith, county agent, be
lieves Morrow county may well be
proud of the showing made at the
Pacific International Livestock ex
position which closed in Portland
Saturday. With but three wool ex
hibits and 13 wheat exhibits enter
ed, the county took one first and
one third place on wool, and six
places on wheat including two firsts.
Especially is this true, Mr. Smith
says, as C. D. Minton, manager oi
the division, asserted that it was
the largest and best land products
show ever held in connection with
the Pacific International exposition
meaning that the small number of
county exhibits were entered in the
keenest competition ever met there.
One wool exhibit, that of W. B.
Barratt and Son, won both the
county places. This exhibit placed
first in purebred Corriedale buck
fleeces, and third in best fleeces of

Harold Eskelson, Ruth Dinges
and Doris Wilcox, of Lexington,
who composed the Morrow county
club workers' stock judging team,

says Mr. Smith. Eskelson tied for
high place in the judging of Jersey

the team as a whole placed well up
and ahead of many teams that had

Auto Race, Ball Game and
Memorial Service Are
At the break-neck speed of 20
miles an hour Carl Cason and Herb
Instone placed first In the American
Legion's Armistice Day derby for
two-lunged flivvers in a field of nine
competitors. The race was one of
the features of the Armsitice Day
celebration in Heppner, and proved
a popular event with the large
crowd in town for the occasion.
The Armistice Day festivities
started off at 1:30 In the afternoon
with an automobile parade to Ro
deo field in which the race entries
took the lead following the flag
bearer, Harvey Bauman, who rode
horseback. Immediately after the
parade, the races were run, then the
football game between Hermiston
and Heppner high schools, resulting
in a scoreless tie. In the evening
a short memorial program at the
Star theater, followed by the show
ing of "Dress Parade," a patriotic
movie with setting at West Point
was the order.
In spite of all the daredeviltry,
recklessness and danger connected
with auto racing, and the ferocity
of a football gome, the only casual
ty recorded from the day's events
was Harvey Bauman. Mr. Bauman's
horse fell with him while leading
the parade on the highway just
past the schoolhouse and he suffered
some badly scratched-up knuckles.
That was the extent of the blood
shed. Aside from a few scratched-up
fenders the autos escaped unscath
ed. All the entries with the excep
tion of an aged Overland were
Fords. Requirements of the race
were that the cars, four-cylindered
ones only admitted, have two cyl
inders disconnected from the igni
tion, starters disconnected, motors
to be started after time was called,
and any car entered to be sold for
$100 if offered. The conditions
thereby precluded any late models
with the speed of which they might
be capable, stepping in and copping
the prizes.
That all cars performed well on
two cylinders was the most amaz
ing feature. To the disappointment
of the pessimsitically Inclined spec
tator, there were no stalled motors.
The cars were run three at a time
from an even start three times
around the quarter-mile track, win
ners of the three divisions making
a re-run for the prizes. In the final
heat were Fords driven by Cason
and Brown, and the Overland driv
en by Bucknum. This was the hot
test contested heat the Overland
taking the lead but passed on the
second round by Cason. Cason fin
ished first with time of 2 minutes
26 seconds, and the Overland sec
ond with 2 minutes 33 1-2 seconds.
Brown placing a close third.
First prize was 20 gallons of gas
oline, second and third prizes two
lots of five gallons of oil contributed
respectively by the Shell and Union
oil company branches in the city.
Entrans, two to the car, were Cason
and Instone, Brown and Brookhous-
er, Bucknum and Hottman, Wright
and Russell, Bauman and Brown
ing, Schultz and Prock, Turner and
A. Conner, Ferguson and F. Con
ner, Madsen and Sprouls.
Rev. Stanley moore made invoca
tion and delivered the address at
the memorial service in the evening,
stressing the need of world peace,
citing certain progress toward that
end including signing of the World
