LOCAL K HEMS
Mrs. Pauline Quaid came in from
her home at Portland on Monday,
spending a few days at Heppner
while closing up a deal for the dis
posal of the Quaid ranch on Balm
fork. Mrs. Quaid recently sold this
property to W. H. Cleveland of Wil
low creek. The ranch consists of
some 3600 acres and Includes the
original Quaid home and the Camp
bell place adjoining on the south.
Mr. Cleveland has thus added to his
holdings and now has one of the
best stock ranches in this commun
ity. In recent years the Quaid
ranch had been operated by Frank
Monahan in connection with his
ranch just east of Heppner. Mrs.
Quaid returned home today.
Edward McKay arrived from
Portland on Monday and will be a
guest at the home of Dr. and Mrs.
A. H. Johnston for some time while
recuperating from a severe attack
of influenza. Mr. McKay is a cou
sin of Dr. Johnston and when he
has sufficiently recovered his health
he will take a trip to the Orient
Mr. and Mrs. W. J. Beymer were
in Heppner for a few days the first
of the week, being jcalled to the
city by the death of Mrs. Katherlne

mer. They returned to their home
near Monument on Wednesday.

has been very ill at her home there
and under the care of a special
nurse, is now reported to be some
better. Mrs. Ola Ward of Lexing
ton has been caring for Mrs. Far
rens. Karl W. Farnsworth, who is wa-
termaster of Wallowa county, came

Plan Benefit Dance
For Swimming Pool
Heppner unit American Legion
Auxiliary has completed plans for
a benefit dance for the Legion
pool. Music for the dance, which
will be held In Elks' hall Friday
evening, May 3, will be furnished by
the Blue Devil orchestra of The
Dalles. Because of the fact that it
will require the expenditure o sev
eral hundred dollars to put the pool
In condition for opening this year,
and the further fact that Heppner
Post Is still In debt from operation
of the tank last year, the Auxiliary
is taking this means of permitting
the public to aid In putting the
tank in shape. The members of the
auxiliary believe the tank to be a
civic Institution, and urge every
citizen of the city to buy tickets,
whether or not they are dancers.

"Pickles" Gives Promise;
Date Will be Set Soon
Waterfalls, sparkling pools, Vien
nese costumes, peasant carnivals
and quaint folk dances of Old Bo
hemia all go to make Pickles, the
annual high school operetta, one of
the prettiest and sprightllest of the
popular operettas. The date of pres
entation will be announced next
In stage effects, Betting forth the
aforementioned background, the op
eretta this year will far exceed all
former presentations of like nature,
declares Jas. M. Burgess, superin
tendent. But not alone In scenery
will ''Pickles" be distinguished. In
spite of the ludicrous name, the
melodies are harmonious and beau
tiful, and though humorous in na
ture, a beautiful theme of romance
The plot centers around an Amer-
ian pickle merchant who tries to
corner the pickle market in Vienna.
Varied and numerous are the ex
periences encountered, including a
mix-up with the royalists. The pu
pils cast by Miss Kate Francis Ede,
coach, are well adapted to their

"Her Step Husband" to be
Presented at Lexington
The play, "Her Step-Husband,"
which, was given at Alpine school
house March 30, is to be given at
Lexington school auditorium, April
25, at 8 o'clock.
Because those attending the play
before pronounced It a great suc
cess with a fast-moving plot and
lots of laughs, the senior class of
Lexington high school is sponsoring
Its second presentation, so that peo
ple who have not seen it may have
the opportunity of doing so.
The play concerns a young wo
man, who, having eloped against
the wishes of her relatives, has
been tempted to "romance" a little
about her new home. When the
visit of her aunt impends, It is
necessary for her to employ a good
many subterfuges to keep up the
delusion, thereby putting herseli!
and her friends Into a very un
comfortable position. The part of
this enterprising lady is taken by
Hazel Bennett. The part of her
husband Is played by Grover Sibley,

of the young man who poses as her
husband during the visit of Miss

The nineteenth annual convention
of the Episcopal church in Eastern
Oregon, held at Baker, was the best
convocation that this district has
yet had. Much progress has been
made both spiritually and mater
ially. The church is growing In its
sense of spiritual stewardship as
well as In numbers and in the
amount of property It has acquired.
Those who returned from the gen
eral convention of the church, held
In Washington, D. C, last October,
brought back the real note of the
convention which was personal
evangelization and consecration. By
personal evangelization they mean
the kind of evangel by which in
dividuals bring other Individuals to
Christ Just as the early Christian
church did. Everyone present at
the convocation, we are sure, took
away with them fresh hone and
faith and a deeper love for Christ
and his work.
During the convention Rev. and
Mrs. Stanley Moore were enter
tained at the home of Mr. and Mrs
Roger Morse, former residents of

MEET BIGGEST YET
Prize Winners Come from
All Over County; Go
to Pendleton Next.
The Morrow County All-School
Declamatory contest has grown to
such proportions that next year It
will probably be necessary to make
a new arrangement for running It
off, declares Jas. M. Burgess, su
perintendent of the Heppner schools
and president of the county declam
atory league. Such a verdict was
evidenced following the fourth an
nual contest held at the local school
auditorum Saturday, in which more
schools were represented and more
contestants entered than ever be
"Quality of the recitations was
also undoubtedly in advance of for
mer years," Mr. Burgess said, "In

this Interest is county wide is shown
by the distribution of prizes, which

Irrigon school carried off the
most honors for a single school, re
ceiving three first and one second
prize, thus leaving Heppner and
lone far in the rear. Lexington and
Pine City in the high school selec
tions showed remarkably well.
A great deal of improvement was
shown especially in the lower grade
humorous section, comprising
grades 1, 2, 3, and 4, Mr. Burgess de
clared, while the oratorical selec
tions of the high school division de
serve special mention for the qual
ity of the entire contest This does
not mean that other sections were
mediocre, but that these were out
standing in selection and rendition.
An amusing feature, cited by Mr.
Burgess, was that from an equally
divided number of boys and girls
in the grade sections, all the prize
winners were boys.
Judges of the contest, Mrs. Theo.
Kubik and Miss Blanche Reed of
the Walla Walla public schools, and
Alfred Lomax, professor from the
University of Oregon, each express
ed surprise at the quality of the
pieces, and at time they found dis
tinctions to be very slight between
selections in the same class.
A unique and unusual feature of
the program was the -appearance of
the Irrigon Club band, woich pleas
ed immensely with their lively mu
sic. This band Is composed entire
ly of students of the Irrigon schools
under the direction of Supt. R. J.

have been notified to enforce this
regulation in a stringent manner.

William Henry Farley
Dies From Accident
William Henry, 13 year old son of
Mr. and Mrs. Peter Farley, of
Boardman, died at St Anthony's
hospital at Pendleton Saturday
night from concussion of the brain,
the result of a fall from a horse at
the Farley farm on Friday, March
29. At first it was thought no ser
ious Injury was sustained, as the
boy seemed perfectly normal up
until the Tuesday prior to his death,
when he took a very sudden turn
for the worse and on being rushed
to the hospital at Pendleton it was
found on x-ray examination that
Ms skull was cracked at the base
of the brain. The doctors at that
time offered little hope for his re
covery, and the lad became grad
ually weaker until his life ebbed
out on Saturday.
Funeral services were held from
St. Patrick's Catholic church at
Heppner on Monday, morning and
afternoon services being attended
by a very large concourse of friends
and relatives of the family. Rev.
Thomas J. Brady, pastor of the
church, officiated. Interment was
in Heppner cemetery.
William Henry Farley began life
at Heppner, being born to Mr. and
Mrs. Peter Farley on October 18,
1915. At the time of death he was
aged 13 years, 6 months and 4 days.
His untimely death came as a se
vere shock to his loved ones, and
many friends, who have the sym
pathy of the entire community in

Heppner 6, Condon 5, on earned
runs, was thus changed to read
Heppner 6, Condon 11.
Heppner led off with four runs
the first Inning a double by Thorn,
DeVaney's walk, singles by Van
Marter, LaMear and Drake, netting
the tallies, combined with a squeeze
play on which Drake was sent in
by Van Marter, coaching at third.
Van himself was caught attempting
Marter walked, scoring on LaMear's
single. Gentry fanned and Cason
was out pitcher to first
That was all the scoring till the
fifth, when, with two away Van
to score from second on LaMear's
triple, who in turn scored on
Then came the turn In a ball
game. "Kewpie" Clow, who had
been pitching mediocre ball, took a
new lease on life when he himself
clouted the longest hit of the day,
a long drive over the center fielder's
head, on which he trotted leisurely
around the bases for a home run.
Though he was Condon's first bats
man in the fifth and there was no
more scoring in that inning, from
that time on he bore down hard
and pitched a winning game.
Heppner, feeling a little too se
cure with their five-run lead when
the sixth rolled around, were all
unprepared for the assault to come.
It was too hectic to tell in detail.
Suffice it to say that 14 Condoners
faced Drake in this inning, and a
combination of eight hits and five
errors resulted in nine tallies, four
of which were earned. Another un
earned run in the eighth gave Con
don their 11 markers.
It was a disagreeable day to play
ball, cold and blustery, making pit
ching especially difficult But in
spite of this, and the nightmare in
the sixth, It was a good ball game.
Anderson, who umpired behind the
bat kept the game moving along
and was impartial. Hecker was
base umpire and likewise did a

ing a wind gauge, and he broke
25, L. Van Marter and Lester Doo-

team, broke 21 and 20 respectively

defeat Helix, 63, but the locals lost
to Huntington, 75, and Wasco, 68.
