A scratch run in the third inning
is all that kept Heppner from be
ing shut out at the hands of Wasco
at Rodeo field Sunday, the visitors
taking the third game of the Wheat
land league series 8-1, and main
taining their position at the head
of the percentage column.
Pitcher S. Soden had so much
smoke on the ball that it clouded
the home boys' vision to the extent
that only three hits were garnered
off him. Cason's hit in the third
was the only one that gave results,
a dropped third strike and mis
throw to first allowing him to get
to second, from where he stole
third and was allowed to score on
a wild pitch.
Wasco's first run came in the sec
ond when Bates' hit combined with
a walk and Cason's error netted a
lone tally. In the sixth they came
to the front with three tallies, the
result of three errors and a double
blow by J. Soden. Their remaining
four runs came In the seventh. S.
Soden knocked a two-bagger, go
ing to third on Osborne's hit Wil
son flyed out to center, S. Osborne
scoring. Van Marter got over-anxious
on Tucker's grounder, dropped
it, and Tucker was safe. J. Soden
was out, pitcher to first, when
Weedman knocked a circuit clout,
scoring Tucker and Osborne ahead
of him. Drake whiffed Bates to end
the inning. That's all the scoring
there was, though Heppner perked
up in the eighth, when, with two
gone, Turner clquted a two-bagger
and went to third on Gay Ander
son's single. Thorn sent an easy
roller to first and this chance was
over. Anderson had gone to cen
ter field the inning previous, and
this was his only trip to bat To
, show the fans he hadn't really
slowed up so very much, he put a
stop to a threatening Wasco at
tack in the ninth by making a pret
ty catch of Tucker's sky-scraper
and catching Osborne napping off
first base by a beautiful throw.
There was already one away.
Umpires, W. Poulson and Bill
lone, playing at Fossil, game was
rained out in the fourth inning
with score lone 4, Fossil 0; will
probably be counted as no game.
Condon, playing at Arlington, won
the game 4-0.
Heppner plays a return game at

Dr. Barker to Deliver
Commencement Address
Dr. Bert B. Barker, vice president
of the University of Oregon, has
accepted the invitation to make the
commencement address to the grad
uating class of Heppner high school
on May 24. Dr. Barker is a speaker
of note, and Jas. M. Burgess, su
perintendent, feels the school for
tunate in obtaining his services.
Commencement week bids fair to
be a crowded one for the graduat
ing class, as numerous activities
are scheduled for that time, among
the foremost being the annual Junior-Senior
banquet, plans for which
are now being made.
W. C. Cox, manager of the Mor
row County Creamery company, an
nounces that with the installation
of a new Ford delivery truck the
company has established a cream
route that has been proving suc
cessful during the short time of op
eration. The route takes the truck
down the O.-W. highway to Lexing
ton and out across the hill into
Rhea creek, then on down Willow
creek as far as the Rood Eckle
berry farm near Morgan, returning
back up Willow creek.

An invitation was, extended the
Heppner Business Men's .Luncheon
club by Jas. M. Bugess, superin
tendent of schools, at their Monday
meeting to be the guests on Mon
day, May 8, at the usual hour, at a
dinner to be served by the high
school domestic science class. The
dinner will fulfill part of the re
quired work of the class for the
year, and though the usual charge
will be made, the men acecpted the
invitation by acclaim. The place
for holding the dinner has not been
announced, but will be stated cn
special invitations to be received by
all members of the club.
A proposal for a business confer
ence to be conducted at Heppner
late in July by representatives of
the department of commerce from
Oregon State college was the main
business before the meeting, Chas
W. Smith and J. W. Hiatt being
appointed a committee to ascertain
the wishes of the business men of
the town regarding it. The pro
posal calls for a two-day session,
free of charge, during which ex
perts from the college would assist
merchants In bookkeeping methods,
credit systems, window displays,
and various angles of business both
in personal conferences and group
meetings. A guarantee of 25 at
tendants at the meetings was the
only stipulation.
Seven Carloads Electric
Ranges in One Order
Yesterday the main offices of the
Pacific Power and Light company
advised M. L. Thorn, local manager,
that they have just placed one of
the largest orders for electric ran
ges ever made in the Pacific North
west Seven carloads arrived on this
one order and additional orders are
placed for later in the year. Accord
ing to Mr. Thorn this one order con
tains enough ranges to provide ev
ery home in a moderate sized city
with a range.
"This indicates very forcibly the
big trend to cooking by electricity,"
said Mr. Thorn. "Only a few years
ago, none of us would have been
optimistic enough to have predicted
the placing of such an order. Now
we know that one or two summer
months will exhaust this supply."
A very interesting thing about
this seven-carload shipment is the
fact that every one of these hun
dreds of ranges is finished- in white
porcelain enamel. Kitchens finish
ed in white or light tints are in
vogue now, and women are insist
ing on all white models in their
electric ranges since it has been
demonstrated that they can be kept
spotlessly clean for years.

neers answered to the call on April

longed illness. The funeral was
held on Tuesday at the I. O. O. F.

Moore of Heppner officiating. The
service was attended by a large
group of friends and relatives, and
the many beautiful floral offerings
attest to the respect which the com
munity accorded her.

High School Operetta One
of Best; Scenes and
Music Beautiful.
Each year the presentation of an
operetta is among the major enter
tainment events sponsored by the
high school, and "Pickles," the oper
etta to be given at the school audi
torium May 9, will not be an excep
tion, assures Jas. M. Burgess, super
intendent. Practices have been go
ing on for weeks, and every indica
tion points to a wonderful finesse
by the date of presentation.
"Pickles" is one of the most pop
ular of the late operettas, carrying
a large number of voice parts as
well as several speaking parts. The
music is beautiful throughout, and
the settings will far surpass those
of previous years, it is declared. The
theme itself is enticing as well as
exceedingly humorous.

State Market Agent Sees
Good Wool Price in
Weekly Report.
SEYMOUR JONES, State Market Agent.
President Hoover has taken a
positive stand against the deben
ture plan which, through the influ
ence of the Grange, has been made
a part of the McNary farm-relief
bill. The president in a formal let
ter to Senator McNary on the sub
ject says that the debenture plan
"would bring disaster to the Amer
ican farmer; that the theoretical
benefits would not be reflected to
the farmers; that it would lead to
profiteering by speculators and oth
ers, as well as over-production of
the affected commodities, thus add
ing to the difficulties from which
the farmers now suffers from that
cause; that the Introduction of such
a plan would Inevitably confuse and
minimize the much more far-reaching
plan of farm-relief, upon the
fundamental principles of which
there has been general agreement"
Co-Operatlon the Solution.
Editor Fred J. Tooze of the St
Helens Sentinel seems to be imbued
with the importance of co-operation
in the field of agriculture. In a late
Issue he says: "The day of co-oper
ative marketing is here. And suc
cessful co-operation of the produc
ers in matters of standardizing of
products and producing in sufficient
quantities to command the atten
tion of buyers is necessary to suc
cess. Co-operation is the solution
of the growers' marketing problem,
It Is the avenue through which Col
umbia county berries may be mar
keted and the foundation laid for
permanent canneries here. And the
outstanding feature of the co-oper
ative marketing is that the grower
gets full value for his products."
Making Spuds. Attractive.
A suggestion worth while in these
days of apartment house existence
is found In the following item: "An
Idaho shipper introduced a 25-
pound white muslin bag, attractive
ly branded, which met with popular
favor as a consumer package. Sev
eral shippers, car-lot receivers, job
bers and retail chain-stores are
shipping or re-packing potatoes in
these 25-pound bags under their own
brand. It has been estimated that
15 to 20 per cent of the potatoes
used in the market reach the con
sumer in these small bags." Honest
ly and pridefully packed, what a
pleasure to consumers these sacks
are and what a chance for growers
to establish a name.
Protecting the Shipper.
The Produce Agency Act passed
by Congress in 1927 for the protec
tion of growers and shippers of
fruit and vegetables, provides for
punishment of the commission mer
chant who receives farm products
in interstate commerce if he falls
in properly acounting or makes
false statements to the injury of
the shipper, also for dumping pro
ducts without good and sufficient
cause. Shippers who feel aggrieved
or injured may report to the bureau
of agricultural economics, Washing
ton, D. C, which will investigate the
complaint and take such steps as
may appear necessary.
Strong Market Expected.
Heavy marketing of fed cattle
early in the year, together with re
duced shipments of stockers and
feeders to the country, point to re
duced supplies of fat cattle in the
late summer and fall and the prob
ability of a strong market for such
kinds similar to that experienced in
late 1927, according to the bureau
of agricultural economics.
Good Price for Wool
Wool prices are quite encourag
ing this spring. Sheep owners in
Wallowa county report having re
cently received 39 cents a pound for
their fleeces, which is two cents a
pound better than last year.

Art Ritchie and Sherman Shaw
were the victims of a car wreck on
Sunday evening when the Ford
coupe that Mr. Ritchie was driving
left the highway near the Guy Boy
er place on Hinton creek and turn
ed over on them.
The men had gone for a little ride
up the creek, turning at the John
Kilkenny place. They were making
pretty fair time as they got oppo
site the Boyer place, when a tire on
one of the front wheels slipped the
rim, the bare wheel dug into the
gravel and the car left the road
and shot down the bank. It caught
the occupants underneath, and they
were held in this position for about
an hour, when Mrs. Ben Cox, who
was driving by, came to their re
lief and helped to get the machine
raised so that the men could crawl
out Mr. Shaw had the ligaments
torn loose in his right shoulder and
Mr. Ritchie received a cut on the
leg, but no bones were broken. The
car was a complete wreck.
Will Make Survey for
A Pure Water Supply
In company with Mayor McCarty,
L. R. Stockman of Baker, engineer
in charge of the construction of the
new reservoir for the city, will go
out to the mountains above the. in
take of the present city water sys
tem, to make a preliminary survey
looking to the extension of the sys
tem that a clear and pure water
supply may be had for the city.
Whether or not the city will be
able to proceed with an extension of
this kind soon, we are not inform
ed, but it is encouraging to have
them take steps looking to such a
move in the near future. It would
not only give us clear water, but it
should also add to the supply and
guarantee an abundance of water
no matter what the season might
(State Board of Health.)
Do you have trouble with your
feet? More than fifty per cent have
foot trouble. Most of these people
could have had better feet if they
had worn better shoes.
Well, what can you do about it?
A plan of foot hygiene is simple
and short and if started now will
greatly add to your foot health. A
normal healhty foot behaves Itself
at all times and a foot which isn't
normal and healthy can be made so
if attention is given to bathing,
foot wear, and exercise. Perspiring
feet are a great annoyance. They
are seldom the cause of ill health.
This condition can be avoided by
wearing larger and beter-fltting
shoes. The feet should be washed
daily with soap and warm water.
Rinse them with cold water. The
temperature and moisture within
the shoe play an important part
in the care of the feet
Blisters are dangerous not mere
ly because of pain but because of
the possibility of infection. Broken
blisters should be dressed with anti
septics. The site of the blister
should be protected and relieved
from pressure so as to give the skin
a chance to become normal and
able to withstand the friction of
the shoe. As a precaution against
infection, the feet should be kept
The correct shoe to wear is one
made as follows:
(1) Straight inner edge of sole.
(2) Narrow shank.
(3) Broad toe, and
(4) Broad heel, with heel coming
well forward especially on the in
ner edge of shoe.
Don't allow shoe clerks to Induce
you into wearing ornamental shoes
for anything but ornamental occa
sions. The stage shoe with its point
ed toe and small size was never in
tended for every day use.
If your feet tire or swell, devote
ten to fifteen minutes a day to foot
exercise. After the bath, while sit
ting on a low chair so that your
feet can easily reach the ground,
place your feet about eight inches
apart toes straight ahead. Keep
the heels still, turn your toes in and
curl them under. Hold the position
to the count of ten and then replace
to the starting position. Toes
Walking Is good exercise to build
strength in the feet, but there is a
right way to walk. The weight
should be thrown on the outer side
of the foot, feet should be parallel
In a straight line and not turned
out or'ln, the and heel should strike
the ground first with the weight,
then swing forward to the toe
which gives a push for your next
step. These simple suggestions
faithfully pursued will increase
your foot health.
The new 310.000 gallon reservoir
for Heppner's city waterworks was
filled to capacity yesterday and last
night. Water was turned in at 10:30
a. m., Wednesday, and it took about
24 hours for It to fill to capacity.
The contractors are now finishing
up their work about the reservoir,
and according to L. R. Stockman,
engineer, the job should be ready
for acceptance by the city council
at their next meeting, the first Mon
day In May. This will also give
time for testing out the concrete

"Thou hast praised the gods of
silver and gold, of brass, iron, wood,
and stone, which see not nor hear,
nor know: and the God in whose
hand thy life is and whose are all
thy ways, hast thou not glorified."
Daniel 5:23.
These are the words of Daniel the
prophet to Belshazzer the king.
They apply most uniquely to the
men of today. The men of today
worship their own brain power, and
the puny machines they create
senile folly instead of giving glory
to God who gives both creative
brain power and the material of
which the dumb mechanical god
Machinery is made. Cast away
mental egotism, selfishness and spir
itual laziness and come and wor
ship the Lord of our lives.
