tery, was the presentation of the

Luncheon Club Backs
Landing Field Move
Heppner should have an emer
gency landing field, and should take
Immediate steps to obtain the same,
is the sentiment expressed at the
Monday meeting of the Heppner
Luncheon club, Its last meeting un
til fall unless a special meeting 1b
called to go further into the matter
of the landing field. It was brought
out in the discussion that by pro
viding a landing field filling the
proper requirements the govern
ment would install a 2.000,000 can
dlepower beacon light to mark the
field for night flyers.
The local post American Legion
has been working on the matter of
a landing field for more than a year,
and last year marked the Morrow
heights for the purpose. However,
it was learned that this field will
not fulfill the requirements, and it
was necessary to look around again
for a proper field. James M. Bur
gess, chairman ot the Legion com
mittee for the purpose, reports the
locating of a field that will un
doubtedly fill the bill and that can
be obtained. Mr. Burgess has made
an exhaustive study of the require
ments, having obtained a great deal
of data from the United States de
partment of commerce, and by re
quest of Earl Halolck, president
of the luncheon club, will appear be
fore the next meeting of the city
council to explain the situation and

Beatrice Thomson Wins
Award from Auxiliary
The presentation of the American
Legion Auxiliary School Award
medal is an important part of the
Auxiliary's Americanism activities,
and has become an annual event In
Heppner, presentation being made
at the commencement exercises.
The medal is awarded to the eighth
grade girl who receives the highest
total percentage on the following
points: honor, courage, service, Am
ericanism, scholarship, and leader
ship. In addition the girls are re
quired to write a short essay on
some phase of Americanism, the
topic this year having been, "How I
May be a Good Citizen."
Those who competed were Wini
fred Case, Beatrice Thomson, Edna
Jones, Roberta Thompson and
Nancy Jane Cox. The essays were
universally good, and the judging
committee found It truly difficult to
determine just which girl was most
worthy of the medal. It was de
cided, however, that Beatrice Thom
son is the winner for 1929, and her
essay is as follows:
American citizens of today often for--get
the hardships and difficulties which
our ancestors have had to go through
in order to obtain the privileges and
rights of Bflf-govermnent, which we
now have. We have little thought of
these things because we have so many
rights, such as taking part in the gov
ernment electing representatives and
officers of the government, and enjoy
ing the right guidance and protection
which we receive through the various
units of our government. In order to
vote intelligently there Is much need
for education. The Constitution grants
to every person living In the United
States religious freedom, freedom of
speech, and assembly, ana of the press.
These privileges, though given to us
now, were fought for Dy early colon
ists. It's a privilege to be a good citizen,
therefore we should take advantage of
this wonderful opportunity, because we
are benefitted by a good government,
so we should appreciate it enough to
do our part.
The first unit of government with
which I come into contact is that of
the home. There I learn to be obedient
to my parents and to be considerate of
the rights of the family. After learning
to obey the laws of the household I
am prepared to be obedient at school.
I should learn to cooperate with others
and be of the best help to the school
mai i can.
When in school I should study the
lives of great men and heroes, such as
Washington. Lincoln and others. This
leads to reverence and respect for them,
which is due these great men for hav
ing served this country so well, and
who died such good citizens.
I should try my best to develop my
bruin and make a good student of my
self, bo as to train myself In doing my
share in solving problems of the com
munity, and prepare myself to be a
good citizen in (lie future. I should
study the lives of former good citizens
and heroes that I may learn from their
lives how I may also serve my country.
I should join In the various sports
and activities of the school and do my
best to be sportsmanlike, honest and

ity ask pupils to help them by being
in a play or by writing essays. I should
always be willing, as this helps me.
as well as encourages the organization.
I should end my support to chautuu
quas and lyceums as they are educa
tional and better the community.
I Hhould go to Sunday school to learn
the Bible and of the better things in
life. Many grent men have said that
the knowledge of the principles of the
Bible have helped to make good govern
ment and good citizenship. By belong
ing to Camp Fire Girls or similar or
ganizations, I learn more truly of the
nag of the United States, so I feel a
deeper respect and reverence for it.
"The blue of the national flag repre
sents justice like the eternal blue of
the heavens; its white Is fro purity,
cleanliness of purpose, of word or deed;
Its red is the life blood of brave men
and women ready to die or to worthily
live for their country." Not only do
these organizations teach the moaning
of the (lag, but they teach helpfulness
and patriotism, and train children for
adult lodges which are an roganized
help to the community.
The United States with Its great nat
ural resources, which as yet. have not
been developed to their greatest extent,
will never be compelled to be dependent

as we have enough resources to provide
ror ourselves. The people or mis coun
try, realizing the great value of con
servation, will never allow their re
sources to become exhausted.
When I go on picnics. I should insist
that the tires be put out and In that
way the forests are preserved. I should
try my best to set an example for
cithers by being obedient to laws con
cerning the conservation of our natural
resources. In this way I am being a
good citizen,

Vigorous Fight Made
For Lower Grain Rates
Farmers in the wheat belt of Ore
gon are vigorously opposing the re
port of Examiners Mackley and
Hall, dealing with the freight rates
on grain, according to James Hill,
president of the Umatilla County
Farm Bureau. Mr. Hill's organiza

fight from the beginning and farm

subscribed their quota of funds be

case to the Interstate Commerce

County Farm Bureau, who appeared

"As a matter of fact," states Mr.
Hill, "farmers throughout the grain
belt of Oregon, Washington and
Idaho are contributing toward the
expense of this campaign for lower
rates. Any impression that the case
is not being vigorously prosecuted
in behalf fo the grain growers is
erroneous and farmers who have
not already made their contribu

respective counties are not doing

Fossil showed up at Rodeo field
Sunday minus Bramlett regular
pitcher, and O'Rourke, succeeding
him lasted just long enough to face
three Heppner batsmen who loaded
the bases. Kelsey was then switch
ed from first base but three runs
were made the full nine had come
to bat before the initial rally was
ended. Thorn and Erwin, who sing
led, and Cason who made it first
when O'Rourke fumbled his bunt
did the scoring. Thorn walked
home when Kelsey walked Drake,
fourth up, and Erwin and Cason
scored on Gentry's hit
The fourth and sixth innings were
much a repetition of the first at
Heppner's times at bat, three more
runs coming in the fourth and four
in the sixth. The eleventh and final
Heppner tally was made in. the
However, things did not look so
good for Heppner at the start On
Fossil's first trip up Van Horn,
lead-off, singled and went second
when Don walked. Drake attempt
ed to catch Van Horn playing off
second, and Van Horn scored when
DeVaney missed the throw. That's
all the scoring Fossil did until the
ninth, when with two away O'
Rourke walked and stole second,
Green singled and stole second and
both runners scored on Kelsey's hit
Tipley filed out to Sprouls to end
the inning.
A threatened Fossil attack waa
squelched in the sixth. Van Horn,
again first up, got on base on De
Vaney's error, stole second sfhd went
third on Don's hit Patterson sac
rificed Don, himself stealing second.
Then Hinkey laid down a grounder
to Cason and Van Horn started
home; Cason threw home and Van
Horn beat It back to third, making
it when Gentry overthrew the base.
Thorn, in left, recovered the ball
and threw it second, Patterson tak
ing a big lead-off; Van Horn then
attempted to go home again but
Sprouls cut him off. O'Rourke fan
ned to end the inning.
It was a day of horseshoes for
Carl Cason, thirdsacker, who made
four tallies, getting on base each of
his five times up on three hits an
error and a walk. He fielded a
1000 percent on six chances and
stole five bases. Cason was outhit
by Gentry, however, who got four
safe bingles on five trips to bat and
batted in seven runs. "Bus," who is
just breaking in behind the bat,
caught a beautiful game.
