Excellent Programs Are
Set for Chautauqua
Heppner's annual free Chautau
qua opens Saturday night under
the big brown tent with one of the
best programs ever presented here.
The opening performance is to be
the best drawing card possible to
secure an up-to-date comedy play,
"The Clean-Up." It is the story of a
modern wife who gets the political
bee in her bonnet and decides to
run for mayor and clean up the
town. This campaign of hers is, of
course, strictly against her hus
band's wishes and since she has hir
ed the most disreputable political
boss In town the complications
which result work up Into a very
clever and amusing comedy. Bob
Pollard and Mrs. Pollard, who head
the cast will be remembered here
as the people who carried off -the
show In "Applesauce" which was
presented here last year and which
was one of the hits of the Chautau
qua season. Mr. and Mrs. Pollard
put "The Clean-Up" over in the
same splendid manner in which
they put over "Applesauce" last sea
son. Sunday afternoon Heppner people
will have an opportunity to hear
and see a group of real high class
radio musical artists, the Corine
Jessop Radio Warblers. Miss Jes
sop and her company give a won
derful and varied radio musical
program without the static, letters
from listeners, market reports, and
such that one gets when listening
In on a good musical program. They
play popular music as well as class
ical music and vary their program
with special stunt numbers and
readings by Miss Jessop who is a
real comedienne and who is known
as "the personality girl." Miss Fern
Zlnzer, cellist, who has been in the
Chicago Civic orchestra is also in
the company and is a musician of
Sunday evening the Radio Warb
lers give a highly entertaining pro
gram which, as they call it, is "A
good time festival around the mi
ctaphone." Following their evening
program Mrs. Harold Peat, wife of
the famous war hero, "Private
Peat" and a woman who has had
more colorful and vivid experiences
In her life than most people would
have in a hundred years, talks on
"The International Future of Our
Children." Mrs. Peat was In the
World war. was wounded in the
war, and tells in her individual way
of her experiences. Mrs. Peat is
a native of Ireland and has that
rare wit possessed by most of her
countrymen. Her one talk is worth
coming miles to hear.
Monday afternoon Olivar's Phllll
plne Troubadours, a group of native
South Sea Islanders play and sing
their native music as only their
race can. For their evening pro- j
gram, "A Night In the Philliplnes,"
the Troubadours carry special scen
ery and lighting effects which com
bined with their music and singing
carry their audience back to the
South Sea Islands with them.
George T o o m e y, athlete-orator,
gives a forceful and interesting talk
on "Kicking Goal" Monday evening
following the musical program.
A red letter day on the Chautau
qua program is Tuesday, the final
day of the season, when the Bob
Hanscom players are on the pro
gram. In the afternoon the play
company gives an informal matinee
consisting of clever little one-act
plays and comedy skits. In the eve
ning they present one of the finest
plays of the century, "Smilin' Thru."
This play is especially good and
presented perfectly by the Hanscom
cast. It is one of the features of
the season which no one can afford

fight fans have been working hard
to obtain the commission and ex
press satisfaction with the way in
which the matter was greeted by
the mayor and council.

HAVE FINE STRAWBERRIES.
This office is indebted to Mrs. Ar
thur Keene of Rhea crepk for a
nice sample of the very excellent
strawberries being produced In their
garden at this time. We did not

licious flavor. We doubt if they can
be excelled in any strawberry pro

Arlington and lone were the vic
tims of a Heppner one-Inning hit
ting rally, Thursday and Sunday,
when the locals played both games
away from home Thursday at Ar
lington and Sunday at lone. It was
the first inning in the Arlington
game and the sixth against lone,
Heppner making five runs on each
occasion. The games ended Hepp
ner 5, Arlington 0; Heppner 8, lone
Fans at Arlington were treated
to a rare exhibition of baseball. Af
ter the fateful first inning in which
five Heppner men crossed the plat
ter, not a score was made. "Ducky"
Drake pitched his prettiest game so
far this season, striking out 13 bat
ters, and allowing but four hits. A
total of five Arlington men reached
first base, two of whom got to third.
After the first inning, "Toots"
Montague also pitched a beautiful
game, and allowed but six men to
reach first. The first half of the
first was too bad, however. The
entire roster of Heppner batsmen
faced Toots on this occasion. Thorn
walked and took second on Erwin's
scariflce, scoring on Gentry's two
bagger. Drake singled knocking
the ball far enough across the ditch
to have been counted a homer on
any regulation lot and Gentry
went third. Turner fouled out to
Catcher Flsk; Gentry and Drake
scoring on successive singles by
Sprouls and DeVaney, and the lat
ter two making It home on "Bub"
Bleakman's three-base clout Dale
Blcakman fanned for the third out
At lone, the game was nip and
tuck with no scores up to the sixth.
Lanky "Larry" Ritchie was holding
the Heppner boys in fine style, while
Drake pitched his usual good game
throughout. But Ritchie was
doomed to face the entire Heppner
line-up In the sixth. Erwin walked,
and scored on Gentry's triple-sack-er,
the latter scoring on Drake's
single. Drake stole second 'and
Turner walked. Sprouls fanned,
and Drake and Turner advanced on
DeVaney's single, all three runners
scoring when after an attempt, to
catch Drake at home the ball was
thrown away at second by Pitcher
Ritchie in an attempt to land De-
Vane. Bub Bleakman fanned. Dale
Blcakman singled, and Thorn
struck out Two more Heppner
tallies came in in the seventh when
Erwn and Gentry, both of whom
walked, scored on Drake's hit The
last tally was In the eighth when
Bub Bleakman singled, advanced
on Catcher Akers' bobble of Dale
Bleakman's bunt, and scored on Er
win's fielder's choice to second.
Ione's first score came In the
sixth, a three-base clout by Richard
Lundell followed by Rietmann s
single. The other was in the ninth,
Rietmann knocking a three-bagger
followed by Frank Lundell's single.
Manager Bert Johnson relieved
Ritchie In the box for the last in
ning and took the first three batters
Heppner's youngsters have been
finding themselves since the shake
up of a few weeks ago which placed
many of them In new locations and
their batting averages have been
picking up also with the gaining of
more confidence with the stick.
"Bus" Gentry finished his third
game Sunday behind the bat, and
that he upheld his end of Drake's
13 strikeouts without a dropped
third strike, is evidence enough that
he is already working like a veter
an. Crocky Sprouls is making tne
hard ones look easy at second, and
three hits out of four times up at
Arlington shows that he's hitting
the ball as well. Erwin at first has
played errorless ball since acquiring
that sack in the shake-up, as has
"Bub" Bleakman at third. The
Bleakman cousins, "Bub" and Dale,
are both taking a nice cut at the
ball. Dale has ail the form of a big
league outfielder, and his throw into
home of a three-base hit Sunday,
catching a runner at the plate, was
as pretty a throw as may be seen
in any league.

Francis Galloway, of The
Dalles Speaks; Legion
At the Star theater on Thursday
morning last was gathered one of
the largest audiences in the history
of Heppner to listen to the program
arranged for Decoration Day. The
program was carried out as pre
viously announced, being under the
auspices of Heppner post, Ameri
can Legion. The oration was deliv
ered, by Hon. Francis V. Galloway,
district attorney of Wasco county.
whose general theme was patriot
ism. Why the speaker deplored
war and all of the evils that grow
out of It, was forcibly set out, nev-
ertheless he advocated substantial
preparedness on the part of the Uni
ted States as the best possible
means of preventing this country
engaging in war in the future. Mr.
Galloway is a very pleasant speaker
and his address was well received.
Following is the program as car
ried out at the theater:
Invocation, Rev. Stanley Moore.

At the grave yard the ceremonies
were in charge of the firing squad
of the American Legion post who
fired a salute in honor of the sol
dier dead, the Camp Fire Girls,
Legion Auxiliary and Woman's Re
lief Corps, and appropriate services
were held about the soldier's mon
ument, following which the graves
of the departed soldiers were dec
orated. Many former residents of the
community had gathered here for

FORMER PASTOR VISITS.
At the Methodist church Sunday
morning a large audience gathered
to greet Rev. Henry Rasmus, for
merly pastor of the church, who
with Mrs. Rasmus and his sister,
Mrs. Lena Bradbury, arrived here
on Saturday afternoon from their
home at Glcndale, Calif., en route
to Spokane. Dr. Rasmus was a
young man when he came to Hepp
ner 43 yeras ago, and was just start
ing in the ministry. At the time he
reached Heppner and began his
work here the membership of the
Methodist church was 14 and they
had no building. He remained at
Heppner for several years, during
which time the membership was
greatly increased and the present
church building was erected. Mr.
Rasmus also took a fling at news
paper work, and for several monhts
was editor and proprietor of the
Heppner Gazette, purchasing the
paper from John W. Reddington,
and then disposing of it to Otis
Patterson, retiring from the game
before really becoming afflicted
with newspaper itch, but he does
not regret the experience. Having
known Rev. Mr. Rasnlus for some
40 years, the editor of this paper
certainly enjoyed meeting up with
him Saturday evening and talking
over old times, and found that while
he had advanced In years along
with some of the rest of us, he was
still the genial soul of other days,
and the years of devotion to hard
work incident to a successful min
istry, and Father Time had dealt
kindly with him. Many old friends
were glad to be at the services on
Sunday morning to hear Mr. Ras
mus recount some of the experi
ences of the early days at Heppner.
He was assisted in the morning
worship by the pastor, F. R. Spauld-
Ing and a large choir. Dr. Rasmus,
wife and sister departed on Monday
morning for Spokane. While in the
ctly they were guests at the home
of Mr. Rasmus' nephew, Orville
Rasmus and wife.

ated in Heppner shortly after noon

but on arriving there it was discov
ered that the residence of Mrs.

Big Tent Up and All la Set
for Big Four-Day
Everything is set for the Morrow
county free Chautauqua starting
Saturday, and the pioneer entertain
ment on Tuesday. The big tent has
been up since yesterday and the
placing of seats is now in progress.
Miss Olive Breed, superintendent
and juvenile director, arrived in the
city this morning.
. Miss Breed announces a meeting
of all children at the tent at 9 o'
clock in the morning (Friday) to or
ganize the Junior Chautauqua pro
gram. She has some fine plans to
put into effect and wishes the coop
eration of parents to have the
youngsters on hand promptly at 9
o'clock. The big finale of the junior
work, the exact nature of which has
not been made known, will be a fea
ture of the last day.
Reserved seats, available to con
tributors at Gordon's, have been ac
cessible for the last two weeks and
have been taken up rapidly. Six
hundred seats in all were placed on
reserve and of these quite a number
remain which are still available to
those desiring them. One reserved
seat is given for each $2.50 contri
bution. Tuesday will be Pioneer Day at
Chautauqua, when all pioneers of
the county will be guests of the
Chautauqua association. On this day
reserved seats down front will be
provided for all pioneers who do not
already hold reserved seat tickets.
The scheduled events for this day
include a morning program in the
big tent at 10:30, and a basket din
ner at noon for which the Chautau
qua association will furnish coffee,
cream and sugar. The Heppner
Woman's club will be hostesses to
the pioneers during the luncheon.
Rev. W. W. Head, of lone, a pio
neer himself and a capable speaker,
will deliver the address to the pio
neers at the morning program, hav
ing responded to a special invitation
of the pioneer committee, who feel
fortunate in obtaining his services.
Musical numbers will include a vo
cal solo by Mrs. Mitchell Thorn, a
special number from lone, and
three community songs in which the
entire assemblage will take part
No attempt was made by the com
mittee to crowd the day with enter
tainment as they look upon the oc
casion mainly as being an oppor
tunity for the pioneers to get to
gether and visit and know that
much of the enjoyment of the occa
sion is obtained in this way.
On Monday and Tuesday after
noons Heppner business houses will
close from 2:30 to 4 o'clock to give
all the townspeople a chance to at
tend the programs. It will be well
for people to take note of this fact
and arrange to do their trading be
fore the closing time, if possible,
to avoid rushing clerks at the stores
later in the evening.
Sunday morning the churches of
the city will join in a union service
in the big tent for which a special
program has been arranged, details
of which may be found in another
column of this issue.
Remember, there will be absolute
ly no admission charge at the tent
and make arrangements to attend
all the programs if possible. You
will enjoy every minute of it.
There will be no 11 o'clock ser
vice due to the union service in the
Holy communion at 7 a. m.
Sunday school at 9:45 o'clock.
